Henry Fry, an old and well known citizen of Clayton county, died, after a short illness on Thursday night. Mr. Fry was a large hearted, handsome man; but the demon of strong drink to which he has for years been excessively addicted, finally undermined his iron constitution and he has fallen a victim. Let us forget his vices and drop a tear to the memory of "Old Ironsides", as he delighted to be familarly known.
