At Sunderland, at his residence in the High Street, on the 1st instant, Jacob JOSEPH, Esq., an highly-respected Israelite, to Miss Elizabeth SAMUEL, of Rotterdam. This marriage was solemnized according to the rights and ceremonies of the Jews. The bride was led into the room close veiled, elegantly dressed, supported by her mother and a female friend, and led round the bridegroom under a canopy, thrice, when the marriage service commenced, and was closed by the bridegroom putting on the bride's finger a ring, when he declared that he took her to be his wife according to the custom of the children of Israel, and also put in her hand the marriage contract written in Hebrew, and signed; after which the bridegroom drank a little wine out of a glass, and when the bride had also partaken, he dashed the glass to the floor with great force, and stamped with his feet on the fragments. We are assured by some that were not only present, but who understand the Hebrew language, and their antiquities and customs, that the service was very impressive and highly interesting. About eighty persons were present, both Jews and Gentiles, all of whom sat down to dinner at the close of the ceremouy. The graces were chanted in Hebrew, and afterwards the seven blessings. Every attention was given to such of the Gentiles as were present.
