WEDDING PARTY UPSET. – On Monday last, as a wedding party was driving from the house of the bride, MISS MOORE, of Desart [Desert, Leckpatrick parish], to the church of Leckpatrick, and, when crossing the upper wooden bridge, at Strabane canal, the horse became restive, and the party eagerly urged him forward, he leaped into the canal with the car, containing four persons. By great exertions they saved themselves, but the poor animal was drowned.
