DEATH OF A NOTED HORSE
"The celebrated trotting horse "Paddy Whack," owned by Bradner SMITH, Esq., of this city, died in Dubuque on Thursday evening. He was driven over by a party who attended the New York Festival, and died soon after reaching the city. This horse cost Mr. SMITH, some six or eight years ago, one thousand dollars. The cause of his death is uncertain. Some say it was the result of old age, and others, of fast driving."
"The ice harvest has commenced in Dubuque. The local of the TIMES describes the whole modus operandi of taking it out, and thus disposes of a popular error in regard to sawing: The sawing is not done, as some ignorantly suppose, with a common cross-cut saw, one person standing on the ice and another going under; but on the contrary the ice-saw has but a single handle, and is worked by one man on the surface."
" Estate of Carl Rudolph HARNISCH, deceased.
