Matrimony.

--In peace or war, in days of plenty or panic; whether bacon is 12 or 25 cents a pound, and boots $8 or $16 a pair; no matter what is the price of calico or fine linen, or the expense of house rent, the young people will continue to form alliances matrimonial, and take upon their inexperienced shoulders the responsibilities of wedded life. ‘"Love rules the court, the camp, the grove,"’ and though we have been for months engaged in a war for freedom, we still witness the spectacle of men and maidens meekly submitting to be bound with cords, which, though silken, are not easily severed. The clerk's register shows that eighteen marriage licenses have been issued in this city during the month of October, which, we suppose, is equal to the average of previous years.
