San Francisco, January 22d - An old street character, known as Jim TRUE, named John FITZGERALD, a native of Ireland, aged about 60 years, was found dying last night in a vacant lot near the German Hospital, and shortly after being removed to the hospital died. He followed a vagrant life, declining either to work or beg, living on the refuse of the street and slop-barrels. For years he has lodged in a hole which he scooped out in the ground of the above-mentioned vacant lot, without shelter or even a blanket to protect him from the weather.
