Baffin gton—Evani. The most talked of wedding that has taken place in Jackson for some time, was solemnized in the parlor of the National hotel at an early hour Monday moriiing,~Tlnd united in the bonds of wedlock P. C. Buffington, formerly editor of the Ledger, and Mrs. Mary Evans, who for many years was proprietress of the National hotel. This event has been a prominent topic of conversation about town for weeks. The prominence of the contracting parties, coupled with the fact that both are past middle age, naturally imparted interest, to the affair. Mr. Buffington has been in San Francisco for some weeks, and was delayed there beyond his anticipations on account of his duties as a member of the Press Committee for the Chinese exclusion convention. Sunday evening he returned to Jackson by the stago, and at six o'clock the following morning the ceremony was performed in the hotel parlor, which had been specially decorated for the occasion, by the Rev. Geo. H. Van Vliet, in the presence of a number of invited guests. Immediately after the service the pair partook of a wedding breakfast, with a select company of friends, and immediately afterward started in a surrey for lone to take the train for Oakland, their future home. The scene as they started on their journey was one to be remembered. Amid a shower of rice, and the greetings of a host of friends gathered at the hotel to witness their departure, they bid adiou to their long residence Jackson. We are ' informed that a cosy home had been selected '-in Oakland, and neatly fitted up for their reception. The Ledger acknowledges the receipt for a compliment of wine honor of this occasion, and hopes the years of matrimonial felicity may be many. Tho bride in this case has been a resident of Jackson since early days. She is the widow of the late Ellis Evans, the well known proprietor of the National hotel, and a sister of C.
