      Michael Ryan and his colleague, Eugene Luckie, who were deacons and one year short of ordination, accepted the call and sailed from Liverpool on October 7, 1847 in the St. Vincent. They arrived in Sydney on Sunday, February 6, 1848.

      He was ordained in Sydney on May 7, 1848 and in September was assigned a position which no one else would accept, that of solitary Catholic chaplain on Norfolk Island. In writing to a friend he said, inter alia, "I feel it passing sweet beyond expression to sit with the prisoners in their dark solitary cells, to hear their sad and bitter tales, the circumstances of their youth, the sources of their misfortune, and the terrible heart-rending misery and degradation, both moral and physical, to which they had been made subject, and then in return to offer them whatever consolation I can".

      Rev, M. H. Rvan. WE are sure the announcement that the Rev. M. H. Ryan, who has for the past nine years been acting in the capacity of parish priest of St. Mary's Star of the Sea R. C. Church in this city, is about to leave New castle, will be received with sincere regret by the whole of his co-religionists, as well as by many of other denominations, to whom he has endeared himself by his many excel- lent qualities and well remembered deeds of kindness and charity. The rev. gentleman was appointed to this dis- trict by the Archbishop of Sydney; but Newcastle having passed into the Maitland diocese about six years back, F'ather Ryan was called upon by the Bishop of Maitland to act as his administrator here. In carrying ou tthe duties of this important office, Father Ryan displayed business qualifications which have been recognised as able by all with whom he has had to do ; and his efforts on behalf of education have been such as to entitle him to be held in special regard by all. Father Ryan has been recalled to Sydney, to an important office in connection with St. Mary's Cathedral, owing to the ill health of Dean Forde; and having to under- take the duties without delay, he leaves for Sydney on Tuesday night.
