JANEWAY�JONES�On Thursday, Feb. 11., in the First
  Presbyterian Church, Jersey City, by the Rev. Charles K.
  Imbree, D. D., Major Hugh H. Janeway, 1st New-Jersey
  Cavalry, to Eliza Garnaut, daughter of William Llewellyn
  Jones, esq., Jersey City.  No cards.
  Col. Hugh H. Janeway of the First New-
Jersey Cavalry, wounded in the late action near Peters-
burg, reached his home in Jersey City last week.  He
is an example to young men of unfaltering devotion
to the service of their country.  He comes back with
his twelfth wound.  Entering his regiment at the begin-
ning of the war, nineteen years old, he has risen to be
Colonel at twnty-three.  As soon as his wound is
healed he will have a brigade of cavalry, and in that 
position will be the youngest, as he is one of the ablest
and most deserving, officers in the service.
