On Thursday week, in this city, Mr. John VARTY, of Alston, to Miss Jane STEEL, being his third wife. The particulars of this courtship,  and its devoutly wished for consummation, are somewhat singular. The now-happy bridegroom, becoming deranged in his affairs, was conducted to the "receptacle of unfortunates," in this city, viz. a prison, some time in June last, having committed his second rib to mother earth the Saturday previous to his change of quarters; and whilst there was attended with his victuals by a buxom wench, a servant at an inn in this city: on which occasion (having by industry saved about £200), our tender Desdemona, to whom the sight of grated bars and other paraphernalia afforded no terrors, albeit of the "melting mood,"—daily brought him a gallon of ale, until poor VARTY, along with his mantling liquor, imbibed deep and intoxicating draughts of love; and in the lapse of a week, they became mutually agreeable to each other. On the day alluded to, the amorous swain, having previously taken the benefit of the Insolvent Act, was yoked to his generous heroine, and driven home in triumph.

AMERICAN WIT.—Married, on the 26th ult. in Caswell County, by the Rev. Braxilla GRAVES, Capt. William GRAVES, son of John GRAVES, Esq. to Miss Nancy GRAVES, daughter of Gen. Azariah GRAVES.—(New York Paper.)
The Graves, 'tis said,
Will yield their dead,
When Gabriel's trumpet shakes the skies;
But if God please,
From GRAVES like these,
A dozen living folks may rise.
