BILGER, J. MONROE - On Thursday evening 10th inst., by the Rev. Mifflin Harker, Mr. J. Monroe Bilger, of Philadelphia, Pa., to Miss Nancy J., daughter of Joseph Culbertson, Esq., of this place.  The newly married couple were, as they should be mindful of the Printer.--We acknowledge the receipt of a lot of the "good things," for which we return our thanks.  May long life, happiness and prosperity be theirs.  August 17, 1848

BLACKMAN, MRS. SUSAN - On Thursday evening last, by the Rev. Wm. Roney, Mr. Comfort Eddy, of Middleburg, O., and Mrs. Susan Blackman, of this place.  Accompanying the above notice, was "one of the cakes you read about," for which the couple have the thanks of "all hands" about this office.  The cake was beautifully ornamented with pretty fixins, and tasted equally as well as it looked.  May the bridegroom ever prove a COMFORT-HER in "times of trouble and afflictions."  In conclusion, we have one request to make of the bride, (knowing her to be a good Whig) and that is, that she convert her husband from the error of his political ways, before the Presidential election.  November 2, 1848

That wounded Mary in the heart;

And now it is with joy revealed,

That Mary is with Albert----Heald  March 9, 1848

FIDDLER, ANGELINE E. - On Thursday evening last, by Rev. Jas. Smith, Mr. Wm. B. Locke, proprietor of the Saturday Clipper, and Miss Angeline E. Fiddler, of Brant.  Well, we will have nothing more to say about "Shy Locke" after this.  We had the honor of an invitation to a party given on the above occasion; but "circumstances prevented us from being present."--We are informed, however, that the evening was very pleasantly spent--the bride looked sweet--and that Brown, after he had been "fixed off" with the Broadcloth, and other such trimmings was actually a "nice looking young man!"  He is such a singular genius, however, that we are surprised at his ever finding one of the fair sex that would have him."  He always "acts" while standing, and stands while "setting."  Brown, you and your "better half," have our best wishes for your future prosperity.  May you never be "out of sorts," especially "small caps"--May your "bank drawer" always be well filled with "quoin" (coin)--May you have a good "bed" on which to lay your "forms," and a good supply of "sheets" and "blankets," and when Death shall "lock up" your "forms" and take an "impression" thereof, and present the "proof sheet" to the Great Proof Reader, may it be pronounced a "clean proof"--free from "Monks," "Friars," "Picks," "Slurs," and "Squabbles."  November 2, 1848
