Correspondence. Willett, Jan. 1, 1869.
After a long and persistent effort, Mr. Jas. WHEELER, of Solon, has succeeded, with the aid of a minister, in taking and converting for his own (as the lawyers say,) one Miss JONES, of this place. In short, Jim and Soloma were married at 7 o'clock on the morning of Dec. 29th, 1868, by Rev. A. F. BROWN. The happy couple started immediately upon a bridal tour, and thus, Mr. Editor, we lose one of the best of the many good girls old Willett can boast of. May her future be one continued honeymoon, for no one is more worthy.
Soloma, may your married life
From grief and care be free;
And may you never, whilst a wife,
Estrange Jim's love from thee.

to Miss Mary HOLLENBECK, by Rev. A. WILKINS, of Cortland, Dec. 14th 1868. On Jan. 12th, 1869, Mr. Austin WATROUS to Miss Emma TUTTLE, by Rev. L. BENNETT, all of this place.
Willett, Jan. 23, 1869. (following a death notice)..... And the mournful sound of the tolling bell had scarcely died away before our ears were greeted with the joyous ringing of wedding bells, thereby changing, as if by magic, from the solemnities of the funeral to happy rejoicings over the marriage of the favorite daughter of one of our
most esteemed citizens, (Henry WILES, Esq.,) to a wealthy gentleman of high standing in our community. Invitations had been given out to a large number of our citizens to attend the wedding, and of course, every one was but too glad to go; and when on the evening of the 18th inst., the Rev. A.F. BROWN pronounced Mr. Fred. MOONEY and Miss Dorcas WILES man and wife, each of the host of friends assembled endeavored to outvie the other in their sincere and heartfelt congratulations as to the future of the newly wedded couple, at the same time presenting to the blushing bride their bridal gifts, consisting of silver ware, Ec., Ec., to the amount of nearly $100, after which the joyous company proceeded to the supper table which was loaded with all that wealth could procure, or good taste suggest. Mr. and Mrs. MOONEY started immediately upon a bridal tour, which will include a visit to most of the eastern cities. May they have a safe and speedy return to us, and may those who have shown envious feelings towards Fred and his bride, have the good (etc remainder lost).

The warm pleasant day which heralded this happy event - the cool, delightful evening - the church crowded with relatives and friends and citizens of the village - all anxious to witness the interesting ceremony -the ease and grace with which that ceremony was performed - the appropriateness of the father uniting in holy wedlock his son, and bestowing a paternal blessing on his children - the joyous, social reception at the house - the warm and hearty congratulations showered upon the happy pair - and last, but not least, the table bountifully laden with choicest specimens of the culinary art - all conspired to render this one of the most pleasant events of the kind within our remembrance.

No longer need the groom string his harp to the familiar old tune: -
"I want to be an Angell
And with the Angell's stand"
for this side of the "Dark River," the last line at least has become a "fixed fact." If "the angels in Heaven rejoice over one sinner that repenteth," what do the Angells on earth over such an act as this? May the blissful realities of the future be all that the young imagination has painted it.
