MARRIAGE OV AN AUSTRALIAN IN LONDON. The following account of the marriage of Mr. Gordon Wilson to Lady Sarah Spencer Churchill is abridged from tho Daily '1'elcyruph. All that I can add (remarks our London corres pondent) is that the bridegroom is a manly and good looking youut; fellow, much more like the Campbell than tho Wilson family; that the bridesmaids did not appear to much advantage, for tho mixture of rose pink and fur was, to my uiiiusthetic eyes, perfectly hideous. Mr. Wilson is tho second Victorian native who has married into tho British peerage, tho fiist being tho eldost son of Mr. Nicholas Fitzgerald, who married the daughter of Lord North. It is rumorod that tho sum of money which Sir Samuel has nettled on Lady Sarah was worthy an Australian millionaire : — On Saturday, 14th November, in tho presonco of their Royal Highnesses the Princo of Wales and the Duko of Cambridge and u large number of distinguished guests, was solemnised at St. Goorge'a, Hanover-square, tho ...
