          Charles Wesley Higgins is the imposing name of a brand-new citizen of Marietta, who made his appearance, Saturday, at the house of our friends Mr. and Mrs. John W. Higgins.  A more acceptable New Year's present could not have been offered this couple, as it rounds off the trio that all parents desire, a boy and two girls.  Though very small as yet, this miniature citizen already makes himself heard, and bids fair to prove himself in all respects, the worthy son of a worthy sire.
