  On the 8th inst. Feast of the Immaculate Conception,
tranquilly departed this life, aged 34 years, Mary
Jane, the loved wife of Daniel Magill, and daughter
of Mr. Charles O'Neill, Ballymena, Ireland.  Her
remains were taken to the Cathedral, where her
Confessor and kind friend Rev. Mr. Foley, celebrated
Mass for the repose of her soul, and feelingly referred
to her imitating the hidden life of the Blessed Virgin,
whom she had taken for her model; also to her outward
life and virtues, in constantly attending to all the
duties of religion, and never neglecting one to her
family, to all the requirements of society, and the
edification of the neighbour, and to her perfect
resignation in the Divine Will, in bearing a long
and painful illness, which she knew would terminate
fatally, without even one word of complaint, but on
the contrary always cheerful and trying to make those
around her happy.  Her remains are deposited in the
Catholic Cemetery, there to lie until the coming
again of her dear Lord, whom she so fondly loved and
faithfully served.  A husband and seven children mourn
their great loss.  May she rest in peace.
