Special to the Times.
PENNINGTON, Sept. 29.-- Mr. and Mrs. William Kelley, of this place, celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of their marriage yesterday, at the home of their son-in-law, Charles C. Titus, of North Main Street, where they received many congratulatory messages, post cards and flowers.

The couple were married September 28, 1839, at Mount Airy, by the Rev. Edwin Townes, pastor of the Mount Airy Church at that time. Mrs. Kelley's maiden name was Miss Emma Frances Prall, of Mt. Airy. Mr. Kelley's home was at Copper Hill. He has followed the blacksmith trade for the past fifty-five years, being stationed at Copper Hill, Larison's Corner, Ringoes, and Pennington. He was employed int he business of James R. Bergen of this place for thirty-five years.

Mr. Kelley has been a member of Odd Fellows' Lodge since November 8, 1866, in which organization he has taken an untiring interest. He has passed through the chairs three times, besides holding minor offices. He held the position of inside guardian twenty-two years.

Mr. and Mrs. Kelley have three children: Mrs. William Asay, of Red Bank; Andrew Kelley, of Trenton, and Mrs. Charles C. Titus, of this place. Mr. Kelly is of a family of ten children, seven of whom are living. Some have passed the eightieth mile stone. They are: Asher Kelley, of Wertsville; Mrs. Elizabeth Blackwell, of this place; George W. And Robert Kelley, of Trenton; Rufus Kelley, or Harbourton, and Augustus Kelley, of White House Station.

Owing to old age, Mr. and Mrs. Kelley have disposed of their home in the borough, and will enter the Odd Fellows' Home, Trenton, next week, to spend the remainder of life.
