A diamond wedding in prospect.
--The New York correspondent of the Philadelphia Press
is responsible for the following:
A diamond wedding is so firmly believed to be at hand that all the uptowners are talking about it, and I feel at liberty to divulge a few of the exciting particulars.
The lady in the case is a charming young heiress, the ward of a well known citizen of aristocratic respectability, and a "general" added to his civic title.
The gentleman is a distinguished Italian
nobleman, now on a visit to this country by special leave of the Court of Turin.
He is one of Victor Emanuel
's military side and is obliged by court etiquette to solicit the consent of his Sovereign before he can enter into a matrimonial alliance.
The royal consent has already been forwarded by letter.
I believe, but at any rate it is a certainly, and the marriage is regarded by police society as une affaire decides.
I should scarcely be justified in giving you any of the names just yet, but I may say that the titled suitor is not the Count Achille de Veechy
, who is another member of Victor Emanuel's court.
is on a mission to procure American deer, moose, and other animals peculiar to this country, for the royal zoological gardens of Turin
, and has been hunting game among the hills of Mains, while his brother courtier was rendering homage to the New York belle.
