Sad Finale of the ‘"Diamond Wedding."’--A letter from Cuba says: ‘ "It may interest my fair readers to remember that Havana is the home of Signor Oveido, the hero of the diamond wedding. Here he is known as a mulatto, at least half black, and he is said to be a Blue Beard for brutality. He is rich; but as he and his bride are of course excluded from all good society, his wealth can hardly compensate his lady for the slights and seclusion to which her life is henceforth destined. A sad and dearly bought conclusion of so brilliant a bridal." ’
