Died.—At his father’s residence, in the county of Rockingham, on Sunday evening the 18th of May, of typhoid fever, Mr. James Peyton Holderby, in the 27th year of his age. He was among the first to volunteer in defense of his country in the present war—was taken sick some ten days before the battle at Williamsburg and reached home in almost a helpless condition the day after the expiration of the term for which he entered the service. He was a patriot, died in a hold cause, and left consoling evidences to his friends that “all is now well with him.”
Peace to ashes!
Capt. J. C. Hedgecock.
The death of this brave and worthy young officer will cause sorrow in many hearts in Davidson,Guilford, Forsyth, and wherever he was known.
A Narrow Escape.
Lt. Hooper, (Capt. C. C. Cole’s Co.) in the late battle ofRichmond, was touched by four different shots of the enemy, but one of which gave him pain. A ball passed through the arm, just below the shoulder, inflicting a painful flesh wound; another touched the top of his cap; another cut a button from his coat; and another passed through the leg of his pantaloons. We were happy to meet him in our town a few days ago, and though disabled for a time, we hope he will soon recover sufficiently to rejoin his company.
