The press of Buffalo seem to be unani- mous in their praise of him, u will be seen from the following: —The Jfmiuw Exjmu says:—"The almost extravagant enooml< urns bestowed by the Eastern press upon Mr. Hayward, the bal ladlit were fully endorsed." The CmmmUl Adcatiteruyn;— "The ballad singing of Mr. Hayward was very sweety and he wu loudly applauded. His renderlngjof the humorous patrlpUo song, 'When Johnny Comes Marching Home,' wu one of the fineat things we ever heard, and he wu enthusiastically en- cored." The Daily Courier ssys:—"The solo,'What is Home?' wu sung by the young tenor, William Hayward, oharmingly, and wufoudly encored. In response, he sang the patrjotlo bal- lad, •Mother, Oan I Go?' which wu also enthusiastically re- ceived." The Dafljf Port says:—"Mr. WOlism Hayward is one of the most delicious tenors we have ever had the pleasure of list- ening to. In the ballad, 'Come this Way, My Father,' he real- lies a point In the pathetlo equaling Dempster In his happiest moments." Dodge, the vocalist, is now rusticating at his home in St. Paul Minn.
