A ROMANTIC MARRIAGE. 'I A New York correspondent writes: London society, jf we are correctly informed on this side of the water, has heard and seen a great deal at various times of the rich and dashing American widow, Mrs. Hicks, whose name has been mentioned in connection with certain marrigeable members of the British aristocracy, and whose entertainments in the British capital were recently described at stupendous length in the society journals, London will perhaps be inte- rred, therefore, in the extraordinary incident which has made her (for the first time in her life) the talk of New York. She returned from Europe only a few weeks ago, and on the strength of her &a. sumed successes ia London, she would perhaps have taken a prominent position in society at home, but for this unexpected event. For on the last day of the year she eloped with a wealthy widower of 83, and the first intimation of the nuptials conveyed even to the six sons and daughters of the happy man was a ,n the morning papers that Thomas Lord m ni \_n dul7 married by his Eminence Cardinal McCloskey to Annette Wilhelmina Wilkens Hicks. ixcept for the trifling circumstance that Mr. Lord is more than an octogenarian, with considerably more than one foot in the grave, the wedding was deli- ciously romantic.

Mr. Lord has a fortune or about a million and a half of dollars, mostly in cIty real estate.

Im- 0n the discovery of the marriage the sons or Air. Lord applied to the Courts for a commission de "unatico inquirendo, supporting it by some very curious afifdavits, and the writ was promptly granted. Air. Lord, in the meantime, is enjoined from parting with any of his property. It is ascertained, however, that he hais recently converted various securities into cash, and drawn considerable sums of money from the bank, of which ne trace can be found.
