We are in receipt of a communication from Cherokee, informing us that Mr. Wesley Hames and Miss Amanda Oakes eloped from that county last week.  Hames, it is stated, leaves a wife and seven children behind in a state of destitution, to take care of themselves as best they can, while he seeks to be happy with a new and unlawful mate.  It is to be hoped that this gay Lothario will soon see the impropriety of such conduct, and that he will ere long return to his first love, and to his numerous and helpless charge.  We commend the gay and festive couple to the kind attentions of all with whom they may meet in their bridal “tower.”
