John Boyle O'Reilly.

It is seldom that the San Francisco mail news tells us anything new. It has accomplished that feat this time by the announcement of the deaths of John Boyle O'Reilly -the Irish patriot, poet, and journalist. When O'Reilly escaped from Western Australia, men of every shade of opinion rejoiced that a man so gifted had got back to life from his death sentence of twenty years' penal servitude. In America he made a great mark as a man of letters, and soon became well off as the proprietor of the "Boston Pilot," a journal much quoted by the Irish newspapers and our Catholic contemporaries m these islands. His name is a household word wherever the Irish race finds representatives who have grateful hearts and keen memories. Like Michael Davitt, O'Reilly came to prefer constitutional methods to physical force. His death will be lamented wherever the Irish brogue is heard.—(Cbristchurch "Star.")
