Ministers and Matrimony

--In the Methodist Conference, on Friday, Bishop Paine Stated that he had found great difficulty in fixing appointments, many of the District is not being able to married preachers--Dr. Lee replied that the first speech he ever made in Conference was in defence of a young brother who had broken the law, then existing, forbidding preachers to marry until after being two years in the Conference. Since then he had been regarded as the Attorney General in all such cases. But he must warn the young brothers that hereafter they must work as long as Jacob did for Rachel, and be certain that they did not then make a mistake and get Leah.
