Two susceptible youths and the same number of enamored damsels, aged from thirteen to nineteen years, residing at Summer Hiill, Cayuga County, went and had the nuptial knot tied clandestinely a short time since. The secret could not be kept, and the gossips of that village have enjoyed the affair immensely. Rumor states that the minister received for his services $1.50 - seventy-five cents a pair. - Dryden News.
