would conflict with the Confederate ?

is attended by music-lovers from all ^
over the State and is the greatest eveut ^

though the congregation of the A. R.

that their friends of other denomioa- a

sist them ia entertaining the visitors. ?
The meetiag will doubtless be very n

AN APPEAL.
The Confederate reunion will occur
n the 10th of May next in Charleston,
rreat preparations are being made
nd expense incurred to entertain the
umerous visitors expected. The
<?gi3latnre, by resolution, extended
hs hospitalities of the whole State to
ae visitors, and it is therefore a State
fair. Charleston should not be
Ilowed to bear all the expense and
as pro.'-aied the cost with the several
ounties. Our part being $150, of
iis amount wc have on_hand about
40, mostly contributed by a bait
ozen men. I earnestly call en Con'derate
soldiers, sympathizers and
nr noble women to aid in raising the
d-.iitional amount ueeded, so the
aunty can appear ana De on & par
dth the other counties now contrintiD?
all over the State.

A SKETCH OF COL. J. B. DAVIS ?
? a
The retirinsr colonel of Richland ir
regiment is a-splendid old gentleman,
Col. Jqo. B. Davis of Killians. Being E
: 72 years of age and quite infirm, he oi
was compelled to give np the office,
although h''ivs the regiment well, di
and wii' "t.i i i<?> I allegiance. ]o
At tfcc v/u j. c-k of the war between x
the States he was elected captain of ^
Company I, First regiment South D

regiment enlisted for six months, E

ont. se balance of tne six months. At il]
the end ot that time the regiment was
disbanded. Capt Davis then, in three it
Weeke, raised a company for the df
Fif^enth Sou.h Carolina, Col. De- 01
Sans-nre, assigned to Drayton's bri- Ui
gade. Tbis brigade was engaged at m
