Death of an Estimable Young Man.

John C. Williams, Esq., died at the residence of his father, Mr. W. A. Williams, on Wednesday night of last week.  The disease of which he died, was, we believe, consumption.  His health had been failing for some time.  Mr. Williams was one of our most exemplary young men.  He had recently commenced the practice of law, and was rapidly gaining ground, and a prosperous future was prophesied for him.  His uprightness and Christian demeanor had won for him friends wherever he was known.

The bar of the place held a meeting last Friday morning and appointed pall-bearers and a committee to draft appropriate resolutions, which will appear next week.

The death of Mr. Williams has cast a gloom over our whole community, and the death of such a young man may well be considered a loss to any place.  His remains were interred at Oak Grove Cemetery on last Friday evening, Rev. A. J. Jarrell, officiating.  We tender our heartfelt sympathy to the bereaved family and friends.
