      at Camden, of West of Ireland parents,
      65 years ago, he commenced, his ca
      reer as an hotel-keeper in Wagga, re
      moving thence to Mangopelah, Temora,
      Moruya, Dapto, and Yambulla in suc
      cession. In each locality he earned
      the repute of a good Catholic and a
      good citizen. His remains were re
      moved to Sydney, and interred in
      Rookwood Cemetery, on the 25th in
      stant, the Rev. Father Murphy officiat

      Deceased was born on 23rd June,
      1840, and therefore yesterday was
      both the date of his death and his 65th
      birthday. He was an old colonist, and
      much of his time was spent in the
      hotel-keeping business, he having con-
      ducted several hotels, at Dapto and
      other towns. He is survived by his
      wife and several sons and daughters.
      Since his son, Mr. P. J. Curry, took
      over the Grand Hotel some time ago
      from Mr. T. McCormick, the deceased
      and his wife had been residents of
      Wellington, and both have in the time
      gained the respect and liking of those
      with whom they came in contact
      Much sympathy is felt for the relatives
      in their bereavement. The remains
      will be interred in the Rookwood
      Catholic cemetery to-morrow, being
      sent down from here to-night for that
      purpose. Mr. J. Thompson has charge
      of the funeral arrangements at this
      end.
