It is thought that Dunn, Taft, and

doubtful whIe?her "honest" John

South Carolina~ again. The five
years of good stealing in the State
which P?attereson boasted of some

thought he will leave the State. Mr.
Pope, a young Demiocratic lawyer,
will be elected to fill his vacancy.
Straker, a West India negro, fronm

it is hoped he will return to his native

Now, it it would please God, in

carpet- baggere, what a great blessing
it would be to society. LiTese "un

said that his eyes were weak, but he

heard the mountain sheep light on
their horns in the Big Horn Moun

with his head on his pillow, had
strainled his ear until he heard the

fifth, in crossing the Rocky Moun

across the valley and was transtormed

his foot 'on this country he ordered
to be made a pair of shoes with
wooden soles. On each one of the
heels be had nailed an old fashioned
large sized copper cent. We tried a
dance and succeeded. Immediately
he secured an engagement as a clog
dancer. His idea was a good one,
and his fancy steps, that would not
have any particdlar attention in an
ordinary shoe, created a sensation.
Soon he had many imitators, many
of whom turned out to be better dan
cers than the "father" of clog dan
cers, as Tim Hayss was everywhere
recognibed to be. Some of them
made money and kept it, but, not..
withstanding all that Hayes made, lie
died in the Washington Poor House
hospital on Saturday night last.-.
About four years ago he got so low
that no manger would employ him.
To raise money enough to buy the
whiskey he needed, he frequently
danced a step or two in the low dives
in New York. Three years ago he
ran himself down so low that he could
not work at all. Consumption had a
strong hold on him, and, being
without money.an4 friende, and be
ing too to kuuckle down to
any o Pprofessional beeirethre,he
went e poor hsnee inThiladel

severat weeks ago, and, being al..

hospital,4.aised a small sum of money
and cam to this city in a dying con
dition. -U6 applied for an epgage
ment at a Uriety theatre, saying, "I
know I am 3ding, and I want to die
with my clogs on." He was sent to
a boarding house near by and a
physician employed to attend him.
Bemng just as proud as ever, he did
not like to be kept at the expense of
a friend, and he .expressed a desire
to be sent to the poor honse or hos
pital, otherwise known as the Wash
ington Asylum. He was there but
one week when lie expired. He has
been reported dead several times, and
has on several occasions read obitu
aries over his own death.
