  • Notes 
    • An interesting wedding from the fact that the bride and groom had reached a green old age took place in Petersburg on Sunday last the 19th inst. when William Gross aged 78 and Catherine Weiss aged 68, both of that village were united in the bonds of matrimony by the Rev. L. Buehler of Emmanuel's Church. There is hope for some of our Berlin bachelors yet.
