Death of Capt. Dailey.

Capt. Jno. K. Dailey, so well known as an old steamboat man on the Cape Fear River, died of consumption at Mrs. Pickett’s boarding house, in this city, on Friday night, aged about 36 years.  Capt. Dailey was well known throughout this section.  In his last hours he received the kind ministrations of those around him and several old acquaintances and friends in this city.  His remains were yesterday sent to Fayetteville, his home, on board the steamer D. Murchison, being escorted from the house to the boat by Capt. W. M. Parker and several other former members of the LaFayette Light Infantry, of which organization Capt. Dailey was a member during the war.
