Extraordinary Marriage Story.
A sensational story of a marriage and death is reported from Montreal, the bridegroom being an English gentleman of property, residing at Brighton, whose name was Ralph Boeheamil Husson, who went to Canada two years ago on account of declining health. While there he made the acquaintance of Miss Mulcahy, and they became engaged. His health growing worse, he wished Miss Mulcahy to marry him and accompany him to England. Her mother objected on account of her youth, and Mr Husson had to leave by himself. The engaged couple kept up a correspondence, and the marriage was arranged to take place. Accompanied by his father, a priest, and a friend of the family, the young gentleman set out for New York. This was, however, against the advice of the doctor, who said that an Atlantic voyage in the winter would most likely prove fata). The party arrived in New York and took train for Bonaventure, a telegram being ent to Miss Mulcahy to meet them at the station there. The young lady met them, and the party took sleigh to Mrs Mulcahy’s house. On the way, however, young Mr Husson gasped for breath. He then motioned for the priest to. read the marriage service. Miss Mulcahy, though greatty overcome, consented, and in St. James street, in the sleigh, and in the open air, the marriage took place. In two minutes afterwards the bridegroom fell back dead.
