The Misses PENRUDDOCKE, of Fyfield House, kindly graced the company with their presence, and on retiring to the field were joined by many of the gentry and most of the inhabitants of the neighbourhood. The good old sports of running for hats, gowns, ribbons etc., jumping in sacks, hurdle racing, climbing a greasy pole, jingling etc., were carried on for some time, after which the evening concluded with a rustic dance on the lawn. The bells rang merrily throughout the day. There was an excellent brass band in attendance, and the company, one and all, appeared to enjoy themselves, and separated after giving 9 times 9 for the happy bride and bridegroom.
