On Wednesday evening, a presentation was made of a very handsome drawing-room timepiece, supplied from the establishment of Mr. D. Lloyd Griffiths. It bore a silver plate, with an inscription setting forth that it was presented by the employes and friends of Mr. Jones, on the occasion of his marriage. The presentation was made at the residence of the bride's mother, and Mr. David Jones acknowledged the gift in suitable terms. The wedding ceremony took place shortly after ten o £ clock, at St. Mary's Church, which was filled with spectators. The officiating clergy were the Venerable Archdeacon Smart, the Rev. T. W. Vaughan, B.A., and the Rev. D. A. Lewis, B.A., curates. The bride- groom was accompanied by Mr. Roberts, Barrow-in- Furness Mr. Clark, Hope, Wrexham Mr. Samuel Jones, and Mr. G. E. Jones, brothers of the bride- groom. The bride, who was attired in a handsome dress of creme Cashmere and satin, with lace and bridal veil and wreath of orange blossoms, was led to the altar by Dr. Evan Pierce, who gave her away. She was ac- companied by six bridesmaids, namely, Miss Jones, her sister, Miss Kate Jones, sister of the bridegroom, Miss Lloyd, Heartsheath, Mold Miss L. Jones, Miss Emily Jones, and Miss Dora Williams, Glanclwyd. In ad- dition, there was a large party of the friends of the families. Miss Smart presided at the organ, and played the Wedding March as they left the church, and other music as the company assembled. After the ceremony the bells rang out merry peals, and the married pair left the sacred edifice amid a shower of rice from friends and the firing of cannons. Subsequently a large company including the archdeacon and clergy, Dr. Pierce, &c., sat down to breakfast, at the residence of the bride's mother. After the repast the health of Mr. and Mrs. Jones was drank with wishes for their future happiness. Early in the afternoon they left town by train for their honeymoon. At the station road entrance a splendid arch of evergreens, with suitable mottoes, was erected, and further marks of respect were shown. The bridegroom's employes and others had some festivities in honour of the occasion.
