HOLYHEAD. A REMARKABLE COINOIDECr;OIl Tuesday, the .2ith November last, in the parish of Rhoscolyu, Angle- sey, there happened a remarkable occurrence —vi' the funeral of two sisters without any previous arrange- ment having been made for both to be buried on the same day. The name of the eldest sister was Ann, who died at her own house, Tyrallt, at the age of 63. She was the mother of a large family, two of whom hold re- sponsible situations iu the London aud North-Western Railway Company's service. The name of the second sister was Elieu She was the wile of Captain John Jones, ship Furest King, of Liverpool, and owned by W. H. Owen, of 1'lasyn Penrhyu. )1rs Jones died on board the above-named ship on the 26th April last, at the Chincha Islands. It wa4 tlio deiire of the deceziseil to be taken home to be buried with her family, and her husbaud promised that her wish should be fullilled. Before sailing from the islands a funeral service was performed ou board, where a great many British ship- masters assembled, and the body was buried in the cargo (guano). The British chaplain officiating on the occasion issued a certificate of the interment, signed by himself and Captaiu Flett, ship Peruvian; Captain Hughes, ship Summerlee; and Captiiu NViliiauis, ilii 1, Royal Visitor. And so the good ship put to sea, rounded the stormy cape, over the Paeitic aad Soutli aud North Atlantic Oceans for a distauce of 15,000 miles, arrived at 1 huikirk, in France, where the cargo was discharged, and where the body was placed in a lead cotliu. From Duukirk the ship proceeded to the Meisey, where she arrived on the 22nd November; and now apperrs the coincidence. The funeral of the eldest sister was ar- ranged to take place on the 24th. On the arrival of Captain Jones in Liverpool he telegraphed to his frieuds to prepare a grave for his deceased wife by Tuesday, the 24th; that he intended leaving Liverpool that morning in time to be at Valley Station by one o'clock. On his arrival there he was met by a large concourse of people who were proceeding with the eldest sister's re- mains to the churchyard. The two funerals were joined and the mournful procession resumed its way to the rustic and ancient church of lihoscolyn. It was, as the reader may suppose, a sad aud mournful meeting of the two families after a long separation. Audso the dying wish of the deceased was fltlfilled -at last she was laid at rest with a beloved sister, in the quiet and peaceful churchyard of Khoscolyn. Thedeceasedsisters were children of John and Elizabeth James, whose married life extended over a period of G2 years. Mr Jauies was an officer in H.M.'s customs, from which he retired with a pension after an honourable service of fitty years.
