In Memoriam - We regret to learn of the death of Capt. J.R. Kelly, for many years connected with the Royal Mail Line. For the past 2 seasons he has been missing from the line. Although very ill, and very low at times, his demise was unexpected. The Prescott Telegraph alludes to the deceased in these terms:

"Capt. J.R. Kelley was born in Prescott, A.D. 1828. There are not many who leave behind them so large a circle of attached and sorrowing friends. As captain of one of the Royal Mail Line of Steamers for many years he enjoyed a wide acquaintance with the travelling public, and was both a popular and experienced commander. His frequent exposure to stormy weather in the discharge of his duties brought on a severe attack of rheumatism, under which his constitution sank after eighteen months of painful sickness, borne with much patience. He died on Sunday morning last, leaving, besides his many numerous friends, a widow and six children to mourn their loss."
