PAT MALLOY.
The song of "Pat Malloy" occurs in the play of "Arrah na Pogue." Its author, Dion Boucicault, actor and dramatic writer, was born in Dublin, December 26,1822. His father, a French refugee, was a merchant in that city. The son was educated in England. Among the multitude of plays which he has written or adapted, is the representation of " Rip Van Winkle," which Joseph Jefferson has made so popular. Boucicault has spent a great deal of time in this country, although London is his home.
