At the Bartow House, in this place, on the evening of the 12th instant, by Rev. T. E. Smith, Mr. J. R. Rawlins, of Rome, Ga., to Miss Anna, daughter of Col. G. Wash. Lee, of the above House.

The above occasion was an interesting one.  The happy couple were “made one” in the presence of a large number of witnesses, after which some of whom retired to the dining room and “tripped the light fantastic toe,” while a collation of the creature comforts of life was being prepared, when all hands united in paying their most devout respects to the tables setting around laden with sweet breads, sparkling wines and luscious fruits.  The cars approach reminded the bride & groom that the hour of their departure was at hand, when “the twain” accompanied by a little party of friends, embarked for their homes in the mountain city.

The pleasure of the occasion was greatly augmented by the “concord of sweet sounds” discoursed to the delighted audience by the Cartersville Brass Band.
