There was nothing exciting in the manner of the young lady of Covington (Ky.), who found, when her friends and relatives had assembled at her home to see her married, that her husband-elect had purposely disappeared. She telegraphed to a former suitor, offering him her hand and heart (?), and the next evening the latter led her to the altar. There has been a very perceptible advance in the price of diamonds. Prices for stock at the Kimberley mines have increased twofifths in value. Shares have jumped from L3O to LSO. This is said to be owing to a strong corner in the gems.
