We are pained to announce the death on Sunday night last, of JOHN R. A. JOHNSON, a clerk in the store of Duncan & Rand, of which sad event we will have more to say next week.
Death of Col. Zebulon P. Davis.
Col. Zebulon P. Davis died at this residence in this city, on the morning of the 3rd of January, 1882. The deceased was born near Lexington, in the State of Kentucky, on the 16th day of January, 1816, and would, in a few days, have been sixty-six years old. Col. Davis has held several public positions of honor and trust, and was, we believe, faithful and honest in the discharge of the duties devolving upon him. He was an Elector for this Congressional District on the Whig ticket in 1848, a Lieutenant in the Greek war, and was Mayor of this city two or three times before the war, and for four successive terms since the war. In all of these different relations to the public, he was kind and courteous to those with whom he was brought in contact, yet firm and decided in the discharge of his official duties. Col. Davis was, pre-eminently, a charitable man - always ready and prompt to aid the poor and the helpless. In his family relations, he was a considerate and tender father and a devoted husband. His illness was protracted, and his suffering great, yet he bore his affliction without murmur or complaint. Peace to his ashes!
