OBITUARY. DEATH OF MR. N. CONNOLLY, P.M., CARCOAR. Not only in the Carcoar district, where he was held in high esteem as the Stipendiary Magistrate, but throughout the colony, the intelligence of the death of Mr. Nathaniel Connolly was on Tuesday received with feelings of genuine regret. Mr. Connolly, who had reached his 65th year, was a native of the colony. His father, who was a very old colonist, died at a venerabie age in Bathurst. Mr. Nathaniel Connolly early in life went in for pastoral enterprise, and also took an active part in politics. After serving for many years as a magistrate he was in October, 1879, appointed Police Magistrate at Carcoar. He gave up his extensive pastoral leases in the Western district and contented himself with his flourishing homestead "Weragel," where he died on Tuesday morning. He had also been mining warden for Carcoar and Cowra for several years past. His eldest sister married the late Edward Butler, Q.C., and he himself married a daughter of the late J. K. Heydon, who survives him. Mr. Connolly has left a large family. Mr. Connolly had been ill for about two months. Early in October a five days trip to Tuena with bad food and rough travelling caused him to return home "completely knocked up." It was not at first thought that he was seriously ill, but it was soon seen that his strength had been undermined, and he then received the last rites of the Church ; but later on appeared to be recovering, until a relapse occurred about a week ago. The Hon. C. G. Heydon M.L.C. (exAttorney General), and the Hon. L. F. Heydon, M.L.C, who were unable to attend the funeral on Wednesday, wired their condolence from Sydney. Mr. L. F. Heydon, who is just recovering from an attack of influenza, was unable to leave his room, and Mr. Charles Heydon was detained by an important case in the Supreme Court in which he was pleading. Mr. Thomas Butler, of the Freeman's Journal, on Tuesday sent a message expressing regret that he could not attend the funeral. On Tuesday the bench of magistrates at Cowra sent a telegram of condolence to Mrs, Connolly. The deceased oflicial was a most popular man in all the Western district, and always took an active part in all Catholic movements. R.I.P.
