A sKETcr OF cOL. J. 3. DAVIS
The retiring colonel of Richland
regiment is a splendid old gentleman,
Col. Jno. B. Davis of Killiaas. Being
72 years of age and quite inirm, he
was compelled to give up the office,
although he loves the regiment well,
and will still hold allegiance.
At the outbreak of the war between
the States he was elected captain of
Company I, First regiment South
Carolina volunteers, Col. Gregg. This
regiment enlisted for six months,
State service, and remained around
Charleston until the fall of sumter
and then went to. Virginia to serve
opt the balance of tue six months. At
the end of that time the regiment was
disbanded. Capt. Davis then, in three
weeks, raised a company for the
Fifteenth South Carolina, Col. De
Sanssure, assigned to Drayton's bri
gade. This brigade was engaged at
Boonesbero and Sharpsbrurg under
Gen. Drayton, and was then trans
ferred ro Kershaw's brigade. Pickett's
charge was no more glorious than that
of Kershaw at Snodgrass Hill, Chicka
mauga. In that battle Capt. Davis
distinguished himself for gallantry.
Again at Knoxville his bravery was
conspicuous, and Gen. Kershaw made
him colonel of the regiment, pro
moting him over the lieutenant colonel
and major, "for valor and skill on the
Col. Davis is a West Pointer, and
this training added effiiency to his
gallantry and courage. But the in

and he thought it best to leave the

Mr. David Taylor, of the Crosby
ville section, has been suffering with
raema.ism. We hope he will soon
be up again. Mr. Taylor is one of our
mist enterprising farmers. Last year
he made fourteen bales of cotton,
averaging 500 pounds each, on four
teen acreq of land. He used a ton of
acid and one hundred bushels of cot
ton seed on about ten acres of the land
and about one-half ton of guano on
the other part. The crop above men
tioned was cultivated by Mr. Cameron
(whose given name I do not remem

farming. It demonstrates that the
white people of this country can, by
perseverance and industry, make
farming remanerative. In my opinion
thote who can, like Mr. Taylor, make
