"OAKLEY--San Francisco, March 14- About 11 o'clock this morning, Samuel E. OAKLEY was found in a dying condition in a room at the Americal Exchange Hotel. He engaged a room the previous afternoon, retired to it, and was not seen again until found as above mentioned. The chambermaid heard groans in the room, which was locked. The door was opened, and OAKLEY found in bed. Two bottles of Laudanum were by him; one empty and the other partially full. Medical assistance was promptly called. but the case was beyond remedy and death ensued before noon. Mr. OAKLEY was a gentleman well known in mercantile circles, was formerly proprietor of the OAKLEY mill on Sacramento Street, below Davis, one of the largest establishments of its kind in the City. It was burned down some three or four years ago. Since that time he has been involved in the steamboating business, being the owner of the steamboats Express and Vaquero, running to Napa. Financial embarrassment is supposed to be the cause of suicide, he being known to be considerably involved. He was a man about forty five years of age, and leaves a wife and seven children in the city. He was a member of the Masonic fraternity, under whose auspices the funeral will probably be conducted. (Second Dispatch) - The wife of OAKLEY, states that it has been the habit of the deceased, for a number of years to take laudunum to produce sleep. It is her belief that OAKLEY went to the hotel and took the drug with the intent to procure an undisturbed night's rest, and took an overdose. The fact that by the side of the deceased, in the bed, was found a travelers guidebook of the Pacific coast, which he had evidently been reading, is considered to give some clout to his wife's theory."

"O'CONNOR--Mrs. Mary O'CONNOR was the wife, and for three years past the widow, of the late Bryan O'CONNOR, founder of the great dry goods house of O'CONNOR, MOFFATT & Co. The litigation which began shortly after his death in regard to the disposal of the vast fortune which he left, estimated at from $600,000 to $800,000, had the effect of making much of the history of himself and his wife public property. Mrs. O'CONNOR was born near Dublin about forty-six years ago, her maiden name being COSTELLO. Her people were in very modest circumstances, for which reason nearly all the members of the family were obliged to do what they could toward supporting themselves. Mrs. O'CONNOR, or Mary COSTELLO as she was then, at quite an early age entered a millinery store in Dublin, in which city Bryan O'CONNOR was at the same time a clerk in a dry goods establishment. An acquaintance accidentally began between the two, which speedily ripened into an affection which was destined to continue undiminished during the lives of both. When Mary COSTELLO had agreed to become engaged to him Bryan O'CONNOR left Dublin to seek his fortune in newer fields. He went first to Australia, where he remained some years, but the measure of prosperity which he met with there was not sufficient to content him. He sailed to New York, and there engaged in the business in which he was destined to spend his life.

For nine long years Bryan O'CONNOR worked earnestly and faithfully to achieve a position which he could ask his wife to share, and during all this time Mary COSTELLO waited patiently at home for the message which she knew would some day reach her. It came at last, and she crossed the sea to New York to meet her lover, and the constant pair were immediately united. Shortly afterward they came to this city and Mr. O'CONNOR established the business for which he was ever afterward identified. There was the most complete accord between Mr. and Mrs. O'CONNOR always, and, though their two children died in infancy, their married life was, owing to their mutual affection, singularly happy. Mr. O'CONNOR died on the 28th of August, 1877. Mrs. O'CONNOR a sister and a brother living in this city, the former, who is a single lady, having resided with her for sometime past. The brother, John D. COSTELLO, is an employee of the firm of O'CONNOR, MOFFATT & Co. Mrs. O'CONNOR was a very estimable lady, highly spoken of by all. At the time of her death she was on her way to attend the closing exercises at St. Joseph's Academy in company with the Misses KEARNS, both of whom were also drowned."
