FASHIONABLE MARRIAGE AT THE FRIENDS' MEETING HOUSE.

The marriage of Mr. Francis Corder, of Sunderland, to Miss Edith Watson, the eldest surviving daughter of the late Mr. James Watson of this town, was solemnized at the Friends' Meeting House, Pilgrim Street, in this town, yesterday forenoon, before a very large number of the relations of both the contracting parties, as well as the general public, who had been attracted thither to witness the ceremony, which was an extremely interesting and impressive one. The youthful and beautiful bride was attired in a rich white silk grenadine, and bonnet of the same material. She was accompanied by three lovely young ladies as bridesmaids, also dressed in white, namely, Miss Alice Watson, Miss Anna Watson, and Miss Spence, of North Shields. The bridesmaids were accompanied by Mr. Forster Spence, Mr. William Joshua Watson, and Mr. Pymann, of Sunderland. The marriage ceremony was extremely brief, the bridegroom simply making the following avowal:—"Friends,—In the fear of the Lord, and in the presence of this assembly, I take thou, my friend, Edith Watson, to be my wife, promising, through divine assistance, to be unto her a loving and faithful husband, until it shall please the Lord to separate us." The bride in turn repeated the above, which concluded the ceremony. Yesterday, Dr. Brady offered up prayers after the solemnization of the marriage. Before the congregation dispersed, many of those present signed the marriage certificate, which was engrossed on vellum. The following ladies and gentlemen were present, being connections of the contracting parties, namely — Mr. Robert Spence and Mrs. Spence, and Mr. Alderman John Spence, North Shields; Mr. Joseph Watson and Mrs. Watson, Bensham; Mr. Joseph Spence and Mrs. Spence; Mr. William Lindsay Watson and Mrs. Watson; Mr. Alexander Corder and Mrs. Corder, Sunderland; Mr. and Mrs. Henry Clapham; Mr. and Mrs. Robert Spence Watson; Mr. and Mrs. Robert Forster; Dr. Brady and Mrs. Brady, Gateshead; Mr. John Mounsey, Sunderland, &c. After the marriage ceremony, the bride and bridegroom left by the south express for Wales, where they will spend the honeymoon.

The groomsmen were—Mr Henry Proctor, Mr Alfred Proctor, Mr James Watson, Mr Ernest Watson, of Newcastle, and Mr C.J. Spencer, of North Shields.
