Wedding - The Fruit Corp - Decoration Day, & c.
Special DIspatch to the Cincinnati Gazette.
DAYTON, May 4.
    
A brilliant wedding in Grace M. E. Church, to-night, attracted a crowd of visitors.  Dr. Courtland Ellsworth, of Piqua, was married to Miss Hattie Lewis, daughter of B. W. Lewis, Esq., of this city.

     At the meeting of the Horticultural Society yesterday, reports of members showed that the fruit crop was considerable damaged by the recent frosts, and the yield of most kinds will probably fall short of half a crop.

     Arrangements are being made for appropriate ceremonies on decoration day, both in the city and at the Soldiers' Home.
     The excitement on the Short Line Railroad question has subsided.

A Much Married Printer
CHATTANOOGA, TENN., Jan. 26 - E. H. EYER, a printer who a short time since left this city for California in the track of a Mrs. GREEN, said to be from Falmouth, Ky., is a much married man, judging from the following letter received here from his third wife.  It is written from Covington, Ky., and signed M. EYER.  She says: "E. H. has been the laughing stock all around Northern Kentucky.  He has made himself very conspicuous, and has had three wives.  He left wife No. 1 in Philadelphia.  He married a woman in Piqua, O., at the close of the late rebellion.  He had no divorce from his first wife, and left her with a little girl.  Three months later he left his last wife.  EYER then went out West with a widow under an assumed name, and lived with her nine years.  She followed him around, and finally he shook her, and I was the next victim.
