The musical entertainment at the Seminary, on Tuesday evening last, passed off quite pleasantly. The school room was crowded with spectators, as was the hall outside. We were entertained quite pleasantly for some time, by the young ladies and gents, with vocal and instrumental music. Some of the pieces were performed very well, and the whole entertainment proved not only that Miss Daily is a music teacher of superior qualifications, but that there is quite a taste for music exhibited by the students of the School. But the best part of the programme came rather unexpectedly no doubt to some. Indeed from the expression of the faces that were present, we should judge that it was more of a "Surprise Party" than anything else. We speak of the wedding ceremony. The Bridegroom and Bride being Mr. Henry Shimer and Miss Wood, one of the Principals of the seminary. Rev. J.V. Allison pronounced the ceremony, and also officiated as groomsman, Miss Gregory acting as bride's maid.
We wish Mr. Shimer and lady a great deal of happiness, and hope that as they place themselves at the head of the family at the seminary, they will give as much satisfaction as the bride has heretofore, and further, that their efforts at giving satisfaction may be appreciated by the patrons, and they be blessed with a still larger family.
