    • "Poor Paddy!" Left mortality, Patrick Fitzpatrick, on the morning of April 9th, 189, aged from 50 to 90 years - a true specimen of the untaught Milesian. No more will his resonant voice be heard awaking the echoes of Oneida Lake. For thirty odd years, expecting the time when Paddy was wasting his patriotism in aiding to squelch the great rebellion, have his tones been heard by man and beast. Heedless of all personal distinctions, his wit and wild vagaries were ever ready to answer the greeting of a friend or repel the sallies of a foe. Paddy was ne exquisite - a diamond in the rough, born without record, but not without a heart; for in the exhilaration of his wasted moments, his body full of liquor, his heart was clean for charity, and he would empty his pocket of his last dime to aid the child and widow in distress, while he cursed the importunate prisoner of his bounty - Paddy had patrimony, nor did he acquire large allodial possession; a small cemetery lot, wherein he laid the bones of his parents, and built their monument, and hoped to lay his own, was his only handed right; And of this he was robbed, by religious assumption and ecclesiastic usurpation. He was laid in the "potter's field" like many other great and goodly commoners, peacefully at rest, ___ the day of resurrection, when the Lord Jesus, at no small Judge the monarch and beggar - the priest and poor Paddy; but by man's device and ___ but by his own divine law, and appoint him place above reordering; the faith and work done in his own body. Good-by and luck to Paddy. [2]
