The Dubuque (Iowa) Times tell a romantic little story about the marriage of Mr. N.L. Alden, of Dubuque, and Mrs. Abbie M. Orcutt, of Boston, which took place on the 22nd ult. The bride and groom became acquainted thirty years ago, and two years later were engaged to be married. An unfortunate occurrence caused a rupture, and they separated, she remaining in Boston and he going to the West. Each was married without the other's knowledge, and both had children, he five and she three. About five years ago her husband died, and over a year ago his wife passed away. Last June the former lovers met in Dubuque, made it all up, and the marriage bells rang again.
