MARRIED.—On Saturday evening, the first day of this month, James Auld was married to Miss Uwini Taihuna, the youngest daughter of Taihuna and Wahinekapu. There were many friends who went to see the wedding. There was a party at their house that evening, on Nuuanu Avenue, after they were joined by the gentle tie of marriage. With those who were filled with joy are the warm thoughts and hopes that they will be blessed from the people who print this paper.
