Brilliant Marriage on Franklin Street last night.

At half past 8 o'clock last night Mr. Clement Manly, of North Carolina, and Miss Emily Townes Buford, daughter of Colonel A. S. Buford, president of the Richmond and Danville Railroad Company, were united in marriage at the home of the bride's parents, Northeast corner of Franklin and Adams Streets.

The marriage was very impressively performed by Rev. Dr. Minnigerode, of St. Paul's Episcopal Church in the presence of about two hundred relatives and intimate friends of the family.  An orchestra of eight piece under the direction of Mr. John Reinhardt, concealed in a room just in rear of the main hall, played the Wedding March as the bridal party entered the front parlor and discoursed in subdued tones the song, "In the fragrant Summer Time." while the ceremony was being performed.

The bridesmaids and groomsmen were as follows:  Miss Saidy Manly, sister of the groom, and Mr. Walker Hilll;  Miss Elis4e Strother and Mr. Owen Guion, of Newberne, N. C.; Miss Delia Claiborne and Mr. William Manly, brother of the groom.  Miss Belle White, of Lexington, VA. and Mr. J. Hackburn of Newberne, N. C.; Miss Matty Bolling and Mr. Thomas Strange of Wilmington, N. C.   Miss Lulie Hampton of S. Carolina, and Edmond Strudwich of Norfolk;  Miss Hattie Ross and Mr. Charlie Bryan of Newberne, N. C.;  Miss Agnes White of Lexington, VA and Mr. Blair Bolling;  Miss Sue Buford and Mr. Matt Manly, brother of the groom.

The bride Miss Emily Buford is the daughter of Colonel A. S. Buford.
