Wednesday last, a post chaise was ordered at Mr. COULTHARD's, the King's Arms, in Workington, to convey a couple to be married; but the Lady was taken in labour just as the horses were put to. The journey was of course suspended, and she was safely delivered; the child died on Thursday, was buried on Friday, and the lovers were married on Saturday.

--- "If I do lose thee, (quoth SHAKESPEARE, addressing himself to Time,) I do lose the dearest thing I have." - There was, however, no loss of time in the present notable instance of wedding haste.
