ALLYN - BRANARD - In Cortlandville, Sept. 7th, 1870, Mr. William H. ALLYN, Jr., of Washington, D.C., to Linda S., only daughter of W.O. BARNARD, of Cortlandville.
    The bare announcement of the above interesting event would hardly seem sufficient, in view of the elaborate wedding which it was my good fortune to attend, and a plain description of the ceremony may prove interesting to the readers of the Standard.
    The house was most beautifully and tastefully trimmed, under the direction of Dr. J.A. TODD, who showed his good taste in the arrangements of the decorations, which consisted of evergreens, relieved by the traditional white flowers. A graceful arch was erected in the parlor, under which the ceremony was performed, in accordance with the solemn services of the Episcopal church, by the Rev. Dr. Ferdinand ROGERS, of Greene, assisted by the Rev. J.M. BENEDICT, the Rector of the Cortland Parish.
    The toilets of the bride and bridesmaid were very becoming, and evinced the good sense of the parties. The bride wore an elegant dress of white satin, with the usual bridal veil and orange wreath, but no ornaments, - a fine simplicity which well became her. Miss THURBER, of Greene, and Miss Nellie McDANIELS, of Cortland, were beautifully dressed - the one in rose-colored tarlatan, with rose bud trimmings, and the other in a delicate green tarlatan, with appropriate ornaments. They both appeared lovely, and the time should not be far distant when they should stand as principals in the same interesting ceremony. The bride's mother was attired in dove-colored satin, relieved with point lace, and the groom's mother in pearl-colored satin, which had a fine effect.
    The presents to the bride were many and valuable, in which her friends had an opportunity to show their ideas of taste in the beauty and elegance of their gifts. a superior gold watch and chain was presented by Mr. ALLYN, the father of the groom, and the groom showed his appreciation of his prize by presenting a set of jewelry of pink coral and gold, with an elaborate set of gold bracelets. The bride's mother's gift was a rich set of point lace, and the bride's father did not fail to present the Holy Bible, without which no married life would be long happy. The only brother was happy in the selection of a China tea set and silver cup and napkins to match. Miss Nellie McDANIELS showed her appreciation in an elegant lace handkerchief, whose extreme tenuity was designed to mark the degree of grief of the happy groom.
    Many and appropriate were the other gifts by rejoicing friends, yet time forbids a more extended description.
    After the solemn services, and when the gay company present had saluted the blushing bride and congratulated the happy groom, they proceeded to the dining-room and did ample justice to the entertainment prepared for their gratification. All appeared to enjoy themselves to the utmost, and to be fully pleased with the efforts made to render the occasion one of hearty enjoyment.
    The day was beautiful and balmy, and the intention to make the bride as happy as any the sun ever shone upon, was fully concurred in by the clerk of the weather. The whole occasion was one of joy to all concerned, and may there be many and often repetitions of the same.


BOUTON - LAMONT - At the residence of the bride's father, in Virgil, on Thursday, Sept. 8th, by the Rev. S.H.HOWE, Lewis BOUTON, Esq., of Cortland, to Miss Emily A. LAMONT.
