Memoir ol' Col. Jin mes Williams.
Shakcsponro says, "Thc evil that
men do, lives after Ihom, the pood
is oft interred willi their hones."
This is true when we look upon thc
weak sido of hitman nature, where
the cowardice MI* man circulates
tho wrongs of a long lifo made
helpless by death, and where no
charity dwells to balance accounts
between tho gootl and evil of a
man's life, rallier forgetting clio
good and perpetuating tho evils he
has done. On tho other side ol
human nature, Ibo judgment passed
.upon human conduct ls th" reverse
of that indicated above. From
this standpoint wo can also truth
fully say, a man's evil conduct is
buried with his body, but Ilia good
deods live after him. The food
thai men do is foll after thCj have
passed aw ay, serves a an example
to tho Inexperienced, and sheds its
blessing* upon posterity. Tho civil
isation of a country Is written in
the works and lives of her great
men, and their example is the bul
wark of her exi dence and lbw
guidance of her distiny.

"We can make our lives sublime."
Biography ls a very fruitful, and
often lucrative field for the literary
writer, and a source of pleasant
mental pabulum for tho reader, but

sults more beneficial to country and
humanity. Tho lives of groat men

An interesting fact in psyelinl -\
is that there is n dineroaeo ii
stocks of poople. Some famililies
as far back as memory and erudi
tion go, present no individuals ol
sterling character, or worlhy ol
admiration, lu other families wi
> find hero and there in their geneal
ogy, individuals of a more worthy
character, and lit to bo leaders in
thought, enterprise and govern
ment!) and that too, where u ri s toe
racy has not lot fall her talismanic
influence, nor educ.ilion her polish
As an example of such families:
constituting the more worthy class,
I beg leave to mention the \VlL
L?AM8KS, of South Curolinn, with
Col JAMES WILLIAMS standing as
v tho heall. Col. JAMES WILLIAMS
was a native of danville County,
N. C., whence" ho emigrated to
South Carolina in 177.1. Ho settled
in Laurens County, on Little Uiver,
near where some of his descend
ants now reside. Merchainli.-.ing
and farming const itu tod his busi
ness until tin4 war of Independence
bridie out. Having early learned
tho lesson of liberty in the "Old
North State" from which he sprung
ho cheerfully responded to the fir. t
call of his adopted Slate. Wo
know little of his early education,
and it Is probnblo ho never enjoyed
tho bonoflts of collegiate cotirao, but
he must have received such menial
training as tho times could well af
ford, since ho ably represented tho
Spction of country lying between
tho Broad and Sabida Rivers, in
tho Provincial Congress, which
met first in Charleston, on Jan. 1 Ith,
177?. In tho ea pacify (if represen
tative of his county, and as tho
champion of Hie cause of indepen
dence, he had to "face fearful odds,"
und found in public Ufo "leemon
worthy of Iiis steel." At this time,
nearly half of tho peoples' loading
men and representatives were loyal
to tho motlier country and opposed
tho cause of Independence. Tho
line of demarkation between Whig
and Tory was sharply drawn.
Patriotism in man is but tho In
dex of his .'?elf esteem, of his love
for posterity and foi* humanity.
In this, Col. WILLIAM? was unsur
?nd, and this bi th" characteris
lc of bis natnro which shone out
most brightly. This led him to
'leave homo arid family, and lo
take up ai nu in their d?fonce. Ile
waa appointed cdonel of militia by
Gov, Rutledge, and was supposed
fo havo received tho commbidon of
brlgndlor-general at a later time,
but from the modesty of hi? nature
he never asserted claims to his
higher title. The two battles ol
the revolution in Which he most
distinguished himself, were the
battles of Musgrove'* Mills arid of
King's Mountain. In tho former
he displayed no little degree of
slratogy, and hud tho forvOs on
both sidos boon numerous, it would
have boon recorded In tho history
of tho was as ono of tho Instances
of tho display of tho greatest mili
tary genius. Ile falls hack from
tho contest In South Carolina to
North Carolina. Tho battle of
King's Mountain ls about to ho
fought, and ho ls called back to his I
adopted .State. Tho following linos
will show how great a worrior he

Col. Ferguson, tho British com
inan i. r, hud encamped upon King's ,
Mountain, und wu endeavoring to)
unite w illi (Jon. Cornwallis lower
down in South Carolina. Col. Wil
liams, with the other colonels of
tho American cause, in South Caro
lina, formed n pinn to cut off Fer
guson from tho Royalists in South j
Carolina and to prevent him from
uniting with Cornwallis. The place
i of tho rendezvous agrocd upon was |
I Cowpens. Herc they collected I
! about nine hundred men, and with
their ll oe test horses set out in pur- ]
suit of the enemy, and on tho 7th
of October, 17N?, they were near
Ferguson's camp upon King's
Mountain. Col. Williams' com
mand made repealed and success
ful assaults upon Ferguson's strong
It dd. In sealing the mountain
step by .step his faithful charger
was shot tb rough the mouth, and
covered his rider with foam and
Mood. In tho storm of bullets,
Col. Williams received a fatal shot
in tho shoulder und fell nour tho
foot of Ferguson, Tho most touch
ing scone of the battle is, that while
at tho hoad of his mon leading tho
I charge, with words of cheer fresh
u lon his lips, he fell in the thickest
of tho light und was borne from the
gory field by his two sons. Daniel
and Joseph, then mero lads light
ing by his side. Ile lies buried
about one milo from King's Moun
tain, without a simple stone to
mark his last resting place. The
. last act of his life was a manly
struggle for liberty-struggle
which has won for him the undy
ing famo of an" American hero,
ito has soi a glorious example to
his country, and handed down to
his posterity a name of which they
ha ve just cause to be proud.
In religion he was a Presbyterian.
To liim religion and liberty were
inseparable. In tho darkest hours
of tho Revolution his religious faith
uphold him and supported his zeal,
believing; that if God ? as' on .Iiis
side he had nothing to fear*
In his domestic relations he was
most happily situated, tito stronest
lies of love existed between him
and tho diff?rent members of his
family, as appears from the affec
tionate Udlers written to them du
I ring tho war. His love for his wife
. and children was highly recipro
