HOGAN, John Sheridan, Canadian journalist, born near Dublin, Ireland, about 1815; died in Toronto, Canada, in December, 1859. He was sent to an uncle in Toronto at the age of eleven, but ran away, found employment as a newsboy for the " Canadian Wesleyan," rose to be foreman, and was subsequently placed on the staff of writers. He then studied law, but was never admitted to the bar. About 1840 he contributed articles on Canadian politics to "Blackwood's Edinburgh Magazine." A short time afterward he was arrested in Lockport, New York, for complicity in the burning of the steamer " Caroline," and after his discharge brought a claim for indemnity, which was not entertained. In 1856 he was awarded the first prize by the Paris exhibition committee for an essay on "Canada and Her Resources" (New York, 1855). He was for a short time editor of the Toronto " Colonist." In 1857 he was elected to represent the county of Grey in the provincial parliament, and acted with the Reform party. While still a member of the house he suddenly disappeared, and eighteen months later it was ascertained that he had been murdered.
