MENAI BRIDGE. MARRIAGE OF WILLIAM EVANS, ESQ., MER-I CHANT. Great rejoicing prevailed in this fashionable and inte- resting little town on Thursday, the 18th inst., on the occasion of the marriage of Win. Evans, Esq., merchant, of this place, eldest son of Roger Evans, Esq., Fron Gocb, Pentraetb, to Miss Annie Mills, daughter of the Rev. John Mills, F.R.A.S., London. As might have been expected, the auspicious occasion was taken advantage of by the inhabitants of the town to manifest their good feeling and respect for the fami- ly, and at an early hour the town presented a gay ap- pearance; flags and banners fluttered gracefully from the principal hotels, and from nearly all the houses in the public thoroughfares, especially Beaumaris Road and the Packet Road, some of them being tastefully orna- mented with evergreens and flowers. The flag-staff which belongs to l eSBrs. R. and H. Davies, merchants, had a most unique and beautiful appearance. At the usual hour, a salute was fired from the rock opposite the George Hotel, which echoed along the banks of the Menai, and which was continued at inter- vals during the most part of the day. On the same day, all the employes at the different es- tablishments of the firm of Messrs. Roger Evans and Son were treated to a holiday on the occasion, and were also entertained with a sumptuous dinner, which was prepared and superintended by Mr. Henry Humphreys, Bulkeley Arms. At one o'clock, upwards of 60 persons assembled and proceeded to the New Hall, where the dinner was laid. They all appeared well dressed and respectable persons; most of them wore a rosette or a white ribbon in honour of the occasion. After partaking of the re- past which was served up so well-having, no doubt, done perfect justice to the same—tin cloth was removed, and Mr. Henry Jones was voted to the chair. The Chairman congratulated all present on their meet- ing together to celebrate such a happy event Addresses suitable for the occasion were delivered by the following persona :—Mr. David Roberts, Caduant Mills; Mr. Eleazer Williams, Penrhyn Mills; Mr. T. Hughes, ditto; Mr. D. Roberts, ditto; Mr. Hum- phreys, Menai Bridge and Mr. D. Williams, Peblig Mills. Several rounds of hearty cheers were given for the Bridegroom and the Bride. The names of Mr. and Mrs. Evans, Frongoch, were re- ceived with three cheers. A vote of thanks was also given to the Misses Mans for their presence and assistance. After thanking Mr. Humphreys for the good spread provided, that gentleman returned thanks in a neat speech. There were several good songs sung during the meet- ing. The company, after acknowledging the services of the chairman in presiding, sang the Old Hundredth," which terminated this pleasant meeting. All present separated highly delighted and gratified with the proceedings, and with a feeling of gratitude to their employer for his kindness and liberality on the oc- oasion.
