Captain A. P. Marble, Keeper of the Mendocino Lighthouse, was in this city Sunday & from his happy & expectant look it was surmised that something momentous was about to happen. All was explained when Miss Louise Harding stepped off the "Humboldt" on the arrival of the vessel Sunday & it was announced that the lady would soon become Mrs. Marble & sure enough yesterday the Captain said the lady in question, having visited County Clerk Stern, repaired to the parsonage of St Bernard's Catholic church & were made one by Rev. Father Meagher. The happy couple left shortly afterwards for their home at Capetown, where the well wished of the "Times" for their future happiness follows them.

From all appearances it would seem that Captain Marble's very recent attempt at a voyage upon the matrimonial seas was an ill-starred venture. The blissful honeymoon was unfortunately destined to exist only nine days, & the blooming young bride has gathered up her grips & tried herself back to the busy thoroughfares of the Golden Gate city. Cheer up, Captain; adversity is something we must all experience at least once in a lifetime.
