A Couple Get Married as They Sit in a Wagon in the Street.

A party notified Dr. Patterson, the talented pastor of the Baptist church, on last Monday, that some people in the street wanted to see him. He walked out and found a young man and young lady sitting in a diminutive one-horse wagon, and the former forthwith reminded the minister that they wanted to get married. The young man asked if the ceremony could not be performed “right there,” and the doctor said it could, when he at once proceeded in his best way to tie the knot. The ceremony performed, the couple drove off, seemingly as happy as two persons could be. They had previously procured a license from the ordinary. Their names were Mr. King and Miss Cowart and they came from above Kingston.
