MARRIAGE of CALIFORNIANS -- The Troy (N.Y.) 'Press' of Aug. 31st has the annexed:
It has been whispered about Bennington for a week or 2 that a grand wedding would soon take place at the mansion of Trenor W. PARK, of North Bennington. Last evening the event occurred. Miss Lizzie H. PARK, the eldest daughter of PARK, formerly of San Francisco and Mariposa, was married to John G. McCOLLOUGH, a distinguished young lawyer of San Francisco, who has been State Senator and for 4 years Attorney General of the State of California, besides holding other offices of honor and responsibility.

The wedding was very quiet; there being no bridesmaids nor groomsmen, no parade of dress and fashion, no presents and no guests, except the relatives residing in the vicinity. On Saturday next PARK and family, McCULLOUGH and wife and Charles G. LINCOLN sail in the Cunard steamer, Calabria, for Europe, to be absent several months. The bride is a grand-daughter of Hiland HILL, ex-Governor of the State of Vermont, and for many years a member of Congress from his district. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. H.C. WESTON, Congregational minister at North Bennington.
