I BLOOM SBURG,, PA., SELECT RBADjNG John Bojle O'Reilly'a Escape from West Australia- Tttcnly-two years ngo John Uoylo O'Hoilly enlisted in tho l'rinco of Wnles' rogiinent, tint Tenth Hussars. Ho was then about 19 years old. A well educated boy, of anient tempera ment, nnd sincerely devoted to the Irish cause, he did what ho could iu tho regiment to promote the rcvoln tionnry movement that bconn in 1803. His connection with the Fenian insur rectionists was discovered, ho was ar rested, tried, nnd convicted of high treason, nnd lie was sentenced in July, 18GC, to imprisonment for life. This sentence was afterward commuted to penal Bervitudo for twenty years. O'Reilly tpctit about a year in the Kn- f lish prisons, working in chain gangs, n November, 1807, ho was transport ed to 'West Austral! a iu the convict ship IIougoumont,crowded with felons. For about thirteen months he worked at road making near Uimbury in the penal colony, associating with convicts and ticket of lenvo men. Various ao counts of the manner of his escapo in February, 18G9 havo been printed. Tho truo story was not known until Mr. O'Reilly had been in this country for ten years or more, when limo had removed nil dancer of inculpating cer tain friends who lisked much in assist ing him to freedom. In the list of absconders printed early in 1870 in tho official Police Ga- sctle ot west Australia there appeared this paragraph : "2 John B. O'Reilly. Registered number, v,aid. imperial convict ; ar rived in Colony per convict ship Ilon goutnont in 18G8 ; sentenced to twen ty years Oth July 180G. Description Healthy appearance ; present age, 2,i ycais j S feet 7 inches high, black hair, brown eyes, oval visage, dark complexion ; an Irishman. Abscon ded from Convict Road party, Uunbury, on tho 18th of February, 1809." Tho man to whom O'Reilly owed his liberty was a good Catholic piieet, tho Rev. Patiick AlcCobe, "whoso par ish extended over hundred of miles of bush, and whose only panshoners were convicts and licket-oMeavo men." Ho was a scholar and gentleman of rare accomplishments, "almost nlways in tho saddle, riding alono from camp to camp, and sleeping in his blanket tin der the trees at night." "He was an ideal disciple of Christ,"says "O'Reilly, "who labored only for his Master. He was the best influence, indeed, in ray lime ho was tho only good influence on tho convicts in the whole district of Uunbury." We continue the quota tion from Mr. O'Reilly's own narra tive: "One day this remarkable man rode to my hut, and wo walked altogether into the bush. 1 hail then mado nil my plans for escape, and I freely told him iny intention. 'It's an excellent way to commit suicide,' he said ; and ho would not speak of it any more. As ho was leaving me, however, he leaned from tho saddle and said : "Don't think of that again. Let mo think out a plan for you. You'll hear from mo be foro long.' "He went away and I waited weeks and months and never heard a word. I was not compelled to woik with tho criminal gang on tho roads, but had charge of their stores, and carried thu warder's weekly repoit to tho Danbury depot. Finally, one day on my way will) this report, I came to a plain known as tho Race Course. As I crossed it I heard a coo cc or bush cry, and saw a man coming toward me with a friendly smile. 'My name is Ma guire,' he said ; 'I am a friend of Fath er Mao's, and he's been speaking about yon.' Seeing my hesitation, he drew a card from his wallet, on which Father McCabo had written a few words to me. Then I trusted him.'' This was in December, 1808. Some American whalers were expected to touch at Uunbury for water. After two months of suspense, news came to O'Reilly of the arrival of the barks. Maguiio announced that ho had ar ranged with the Captain of one of tho' whalers, the Vigilant of New Dedford, lo cruise for two or threo days jtul outside of Australian waters, and take tlio fugitive on board from a small boat. On tho night of February 18th O'Reilly waited until the warder had visited his hut, put on a pair of free man s Hioes, as thu trackers cou.d easily discern tho mark of a regula tion convict's boot, and struck into tho bush. . About 1 1 o'clock I came to an old convict station, and Iny down behind an old gum treo at tlio roadside, in half an hour or so two men lodo up, thoy passed on ; they wero farmers, probably, or may be a patrol of mount ed police. Shortly after, I heard horses coming at a sharp trot. They halted near mo and 1 heard "l'atnck s Uay' whistled clear and low. In an instant I was with tiiem Maguiro and anoth er friend M . Tuey lead a spare horse. I mounted at once, and with out a word we struck into tho bush nt a gallop. For hourd wo rode on in si lence. Thoy reached tho shore, found a small boat ready for them, and pulled about forty miles tlnngtno ooast to tho point whero they expected to meet tho Now Bedford whaler. No ono had thought to bring food or watcr,and for twenty-four hours or more tho suiter ings of tho patty wero intense. At 1 o'clock on the third day thev mado out the Vigilant, under full sail, steering north. They pulled toward her willi light hearts." Sho was steoring straight toward in, so wo stopped pulling and waited for her. liut wo wero bound to bo woful ly disappointed. When shq was with in two mles of our boat alio 'fell off several points, as if to avoid us. Every ono stared in amazement, Maguire say ing that Captain Baker had given his word ns a man, and ho oould not bu liove, that ho would break it. Oue of thu mon stood up in tho boat and gave a loud hail that must havo been heard on board, No answer, Again lie hail ed, and wo all joined in tho shout. No answer. It only seemed that the Vi gilant turned to point further from us. At last she came ahroa&t of our boat. Sho was then about threo miles distant. Maguiro hoisted a white shirt on ttio end of an oar, aud wo shouted again, Hut the Vigilant passed, on, mid left our boat to its fato. They landed on tbo boaoh, nnd O' Reilly s fiiends went bank to Uunbury, tmw FRIDAY, MAY 22, promising tojeturn in a week, nnd leaving him hiding in a secluded sand valley close to tho shore. Ho climbed a treo nnd caught an opossum, nnd nlso captured a fow kangaroo rats. Thoso animals supplied him with food. After threo days O'Reilly, still believ ing that Capt. Baker must bo cruisiug for him somcwhero off tho coast, re solved to make nnolhcr attempt to board tho A'haler. The rowboat was too heavy for him to pull alone. Six or seven miles further up tho beach ha found an old dory otil, launched it, mado it watertight by plugging tho cracks with paper bark, and put to sea alone. Heforo night I had passed tho head land, aud was on thu Indian Ocean. I knew there was a current going north ward. Next morning I gavo up pull ing, nnd sat down to watch and wait. It was very hot. The sun flamed above, nnd tho reflection from tho wa ter was scorching. That day, toward noon, I saw a sail. It wns tho Vigilent thero was no other vessel there. Sho drew near to me, so that I heard voices on deck. I Baw the men on tho lookout, but they did not see me at least Capt. Baker says so. Sho sailed away again, and was out of sight bo foie night. Tlio diw and cool air re freshed me, and I resolved to pull back to shore and wait for Maguiro's re turm I pulled all night, off and on, and in the morning saw tho sand hills at tho headland of Gcographo Bay. After that second disappointment O'Reilly left his sand valley no more. Ho slept most of tho time for fivo days, and then Maguiro came back with good news that Father McCabe had arrang ed for O'Reilly's nassapo on another New Bedford whaler, tho Gazelle, Capt. Gilford. But Maguire also brought an unwelcomo traveling com panion, ono Martin Bowman, a ticket-of-lcave man, and one of tho worst characters of the colony. Bowman had discovered tho means of O'Rollly's es cape, and had threatened to put the police on tho track unless he was taken off, too. That nighi wo slept little, some ono always keeping an eye on Bowmau. We wero up at daybreak, and soon after wo wero afloat. Wo pulled straight toward tho headland, as Capt. Gilford had instructed. By noon wo saw tho two whaleships coming along with a fine breeze. Toward evening wo heard a hail, and somebody shouted my name, and cried out, "Como on board!'' Wo were all overjoyed. We pulled alongside, and I was helped out of thu boat by tho strong arms of Hen ry Hathaway, tho third male. Capt. Gifford made me welcome, and gavo mo a place in the cabin. Martin Bow man, the escaped criminal was sent for ward among the crew. Six months afterward, when the Ga zello touched at Rederique, an English island iu the Indian Ocean,, the Gover nor enmo aboard searching for "an es caped convict from Australia, a black haired man.1' I was standing near Mr. Ilussoy, the mate, when tho Governor mado the demand. Mr. Hussey said that no such person was on board. Tho Governor answered that a man had es caped on the Gazelle. Mr. Ilussoy feared that he might scizo the ship, so ho said that a man of that description, who had como on board off the coast of Australia, might be tho person. Ho called Bon man, who every ono on board detested, and ho was put in irons nnd taken ashore. Wo knew that he would tell tho whole story (tho wonder is that ho did not do it then ; but ho wished to make tefms for his own ro lease.) That night tho officers of tho Gazelle threw overboard tho grind stone, with my hat, whilo I lay hid in the Captain's cabin. A cry of "Man overboard !" was raised, a boat lower ed, and the hat picke'd up. There was on board somo English ex-convicts who had been shipped in Anstralia,and theso only waited to get mo re-taken. But one of them utterly deceived by tho officers' strategy, declared that ho saw me sink whero my hat wns picked up. When the Governor camo on board next day to demand his prisoner the flag was nt half mast, and tho officers sorrowfully told him that tho man he probably wanted had jumped overboard in tho night and was drowned. Ilia policemen went nmong the crew and learned tho same news. Two days la ter tho Gazelle sailed from Rodcrique, and 1 camo on deck, much to tho amazement of the crow. That ended Mr. O'Reillv's adven tures. Off tho Capo of Good IIppo Cantain Gifford handed liim ttiirt.pon sovereigns, all tho money ho bad, and transferred him to the Amorican shin Sapphire. This ship took him to Liv erpool, where ho was provided with a secure hiding place until a Jierth was secured tor him on tho Batli ship Bom bay, which landed him in Philadelphia on November 23d, 1808, nino months after he mado his first break for tho Australian bush, AT Y. Sun. Shayinc and Boot filaoking. New York Oraphlc The luxury oi an American shave is a thing that Englishmen hear a good deal about and which they aro gener ally nnxious to oxperionco whon thoy nrrivo on our shores. After having tried it they say tho luxury is a delu sion and a snare. Every Englishman shaves himself and that is why travel ing Americans look in vain for an ar tisiio capillary abridger in London. The American asserts that nowhere hut in his native land are truo artists with the razor to bo found. A shavo every morning is as much a part of tho averago Englishman' toilet as is a balh, or, ns ho calls it, a "bawtb." An Amorican shrinks from shaving himself, nnd somehow consi. ders it a thing beneath his dignity, when ho oan hiro a man to do it. Ho performs a far moro nrduous labor, however, when ho blackens his own boots. To' an Englishman nothing is more insulting than a suggestion that ho blackens his boots. A man may bo a blackguard, a drunkard, may not pay his debts, may live bv his wits or tho waut of snmo other man's wits, and ao cording to thb English notion mav yot bo a "gentleman i ( but let it ono'o bo known that ho bluokeiis his own boots and ho is expelled from all decent so olety.

Onofn's Awful Orimc An Italian named Onbfri, was ar raigned before tho Coroner in Phila delphia last week on a chnrgo of bent ing his step-daughter to death. Onofrf married a woman named Cook who had threo children, nnd wh6 was a (hi. pczo performer in Foropnugh's circus, nnd during her nbsonco tho father would ptiti'iBh the ohildrcri. At tho Coroner's inquest tho room was filled and the audienco composed principally of 111611 and mang of them looked as though tlleb had murder in their hearts during the recital of tho story of tlio child's death. At ono time they crowd ed close around the prisoner, but Wero pushed back by tho officers. Ono man leaned over and said to tho cowering Italian in a fierce whisper ; "I would liko to havo your throat be tween my hands for about three min utes." Other men expressed dosires to "mash him in the face" and to "cut his heart out," and one grizzly bearded old fellow who stobd near the door, said : "I would liko lo havo him west of tho Missouri River' witli a twenty foot lariat on my saddle-bow' nnd I would give him a liltlo tight-ropo perform nnco thnt would surptiso him and his circus fiiends." Tho officers present were too much in sympathy witli theso sentiments to bo ovcrzealotis In stopping tho remarks that floated out every few mtnutcs from tho crowd. The prisoner is a Utile, wiry man with a swarthy complexion and black hair and a littlo black moustache. His faco bears a rather pleasant expression, although on ono or two occasions dur ing tho inquost his eyes showed an ugly gleam. Ho sat close to the wall and throughout tho inquiry either shielded his faco with his hat or his hands. Tho evidence brought out dur ing thu inquest revealed even moro hor riblo cruelties than was at first suspect ed. Coroner's Clerk John S. Donal, who had investigated tho murder lold how bo had elicited admissions from. Onofri that ho had beaten the, dead child with a shovel, strap and knotted rope and that ho had seen tho'body of tho child covered with bruises and cuts. "Ho told me," said tlio clerk, "that he had broken tho shovel over the child's head." "No, no; I no told you that," yelled Onofri. "Shut up," retorted tho Clerk, as he pounded tho Diblo before him with a tightly clenched fist. I say you, did." At another interruption tho Clerk shook; his list at tho prisoner and shout ed !

Wilson, who lives next door to Onofri, said sho of ten heard outcries from the children as though, thoy wero being beaten. Lieutenant Edward Lyons, of the Twenty-third polico district testified that ho had made au investigation, of the caso and that tho prisoner had ad mitted to him that he had "corrected" tho child and that whila ,80, doing- he had probably killed'her.- - "Ho said," continued tho officer, 'that ho had whipped tho girl with a strap and beaten her with n shovel, but ho declared that ho didn't know sho was sick. The oldest girl told mo that the step-father beat, all of tho children nearly overy day and that a short timo ago ho threw several bricks at her." Coroner's Physician Forraad testified that the autopsy showed that .death was duo lo violence and the emaciated appearance of;the child also showed .ev idences of starvation. Tho body was covered with cuts and bruises and there was a clot of blood on tho brain. Death was caused by shook and bleed' ing.

"I only wanted to say," he renlled, "that I didn't mean to kill the girl, but I had to correct her becauso sho was bad." Under cro.-H-e.vamination ho admit ted having beaten her with a shovel on tho day of her death. Ho, also said that ho had tied tho Jittlo brother of tho girl, up by, tho thumbs to "correct him for stealing." Doth.nro terrlblv bruised and thn hoy's conditition is considered critical. 1 ho, physicians think it is probable that tho boy will die, in which caso Onofri will havo to answer for a dou ble murder. The boy's testimony could not be taken on account of his coudition, but the girl, who is twelvo years old, told the story of tho crimo in a pretty simple, childish way that pro duced moro visible effect on tho jury than any of. the preceding testimony. "Papa bfgan beating Lottie on Mon day morning," sho said, "becauso sho was disobedient. lie first hit her with tho strap, then tho rope, then tho broomstick nnd then the shovel. Then ho mado her go up stairs on her knpes. When sho couldn't climb above ' tho first story ho ran up after her and struck her and mado her go on up. Then sho lay on tho bed anil moaued this way and tho littlo witness mil itated the cries of a person iu nain with startling accuracy, "Ho called her," sho went on. "when it was dinner time, but sho diin't come, nnd then ho called her again at supper time. Sho didn't come atrain and ho went tip stairs and whipped her around tho hallway. Then ho picked her up nnd threw her on the bed and struck her on both sides of tlio face.

Then she stopped crying and lay very quiet, aim uo sent mo lor tho doctor. During the recital of tho murder sho begged several times to seo her dead Bister. She expressed much lovo for her motlur and great abhorrence of her step father. When tho child was dismissed tho jury arrived at a verdict immediately, in which thoy found that "tho child, Lottie Cook, camo to her doatli from shook, hemorrhage aud bleeding of wounds received at the hands of her step-father, Achillo Quof ri, and recommended that tho District Attorney bo enjoined to bring tho caso to a speedy trial.

Ho was Daniel E. Stanton, the man who on October ICth shot bis frior.d, Fredoriok P. Nash, from which ho died tbroo days later. Chief Kolloy, of tho detectivo department, was at onco sent for and istnnton taken into custody. Tho sto ry of tho shooting, from tho statements of Nash, is as follows : Doth young men had been schoolmates at tho Mys tic Bridge Institute, near Stoningtou, Conn. Nash was poor, but tho par ents Of Slanton wero well-to-do peo ple, and ho was always well supplied with money. On leaving tho institu tion at Mystic Bridge, Nash wont to somo relative at Tourla, Mexico, but soon became tired of tho country, ho said, and camo back to the United States, working his way as a deck hand on board a schooner. Ho met his friend Stanton in Now York. Tho lattcr's father had died nnd left him considerable money, with whloh ho in tended to havo a good time. Ho pro posed coming to Philadelphia and Nash agreed, his expenses being defrayed by Stanton. Arriving in tho city, they scoured a room at Guy's hotel, corner of Seventh and Chestnut streets. On the morning of October IGth they hired a carriage and were driven throngh Fairmount Park, taking sup per nt tho Rivcrsido mansion ' on tho Schuylkill river, in tho evening. Later tho sairio evening thoy boarded a train on'tho Philadelphia and Reading rail road, having first secured tickets for Now York. When tho' train reached the Sixteenth street station Nash ex pressed a desiro for a drink, saying that ho was chilly, and a drink of somo liquor would warm him up. Ho got up from his scat and left the car, lol- lowcd by Stanton, who was angry be causo his friend persisted in getting off tuo car. Shortly after 10 o'clock that night Nash' was found lying across tbo pas- cngcr railway car track on Broad street near' tho Reading railroad track. tic said Stanton Had become enraged at him for leaving tho train, nnd had fired threo Bhots at him, two of which took effect. Ono of them entered tho right hip, penetrating tho bladder, and the other passed through tho lungs. Ho ilicd three days later without having made any further statement in regard to how tho shooting occurred. lUtortB wero mado to discover tho wherabouts of Stanton, but without success. Nothing was beard of Stan ton except that bo had fled from the country and was probably in Soutii Ahierica. AVhen ho loft the city ho was very boyish in appearanco and had a smooth shaven face. When ho sur- endcred himself bo had a full beard and wore a pair of goggles. A small leather satchel hung at bis back sus pended by a strap ovor his .boulder in tourist style. .Tho conversation bo tween himself and tho mayor was very short, Stanton saying that ho had sav ed the authorities considerable trouble by surrendering himself and hoped that tho mayor would seo that he was treated fairly. 'Wo would have captured you sooner or later,' remarked Mayor Smith: when Stanton paused. "indeed yon would not, returned tho other. "I arrived in New York on Sunday, and smco then I have passed a number of my most intimalo friends, nnd not one of them know me. This full beard which I havo allowed- to grow, together with this uair of oocr. t? fj I E O r gles, form an effectual disguijo, and I doubt whether any officer of this or any other city could have penetrated it." Upon leaving Philadelphia be went direct lo Now York, whero bo 'look passage for South America. Hea re mained there only a short time, 'soon returned to Cuba, where lie had been tor several months.
