B * K # BILLY TEE BAG FICXEB The eccentric individual known by this I title, who died a few months since po.^eessed of cash property to the amount of six thousand dollars, was of most respectable connections, I and &>me heirs to his wealth have made them selves known. On Thursday afternoon a lady about sixty years old. uurst respectably and richly attired, with gold spectacles, Ac., railed ou Rev. Air. Pease at the Five Points House <>f Industry, and asked him if he knew William L? . Mr. P. never hav ing heard the mime, of course informed the lady that ho knew no such person, and after some conversation she informed him that she had heard he wad seen on the steps of the Astor lit. use a few months since, gathering rags. The whole truth at once broke in like a sudden light upon Mr. Pease, and he in formed the lady that he knew a man answer ing the description, who lived the Five Points, and known as '? Billy the Riig Picker." and that he dv-d worth Sti.UOO- The old lady then stated that the deceased was her brother, and she went on to give the following particulars of his early life : She said she was the daughter of one of the most extensive publishers of theological publi cations in the city of New York, anil that be side herself there were two other daughters and three son?, of whom William was the youngest; tlmt when about seventeen years old he became acquainted with a young man about his own age who was somewhat dissi pated in his haMts. and the pair could not be separate 1 One fourth of July the family all ?went to attend a nrayer-meeting, except Wil liam, who refused to go. and ou their return they found him in an outrageous state of drunkenness. After this scarcely a day paired over him in which he was not more or less intoxicated, and at lei gth, during one of his drunker, sprees, he enlisted in the United btates Marines, where he served his five years, and at the expiration of his term he xe-enlisted. After experiencing various vicis situde- of fortune in his naval-military career, he got discharged a second time, and then commenced his wandering And eccentric mode of living. There was one sister who still knew of his whereabouts, and, although she never went to hiui. he always went to her. and had for her a sincere affection. The father and mother i<oon died, and the present lady married a clergyman who was sent as missionary to the West, by whom she had several children, and although they occasionally saw him, yet he was lo>t sight of eutirely for some live years. He." however. a?ain turned up only a short time before his death. A few days since the children of the lady spoke to their mother concerning the matter ; they said they did not like to hear of their mother's brother lead ing a vagrant life, and gaining a precarious subsistence by picking rags in the streets. 'The old lady then made inquiry, and learned that, although her brother had lived in abject poverty, he died worth a considerable sum of money. It i- supposed that herself and chil dren will claim the property as heirs at law.? Aw Yuri Sun.
