When Ui Ames was Provisional governor of the Slate lie appointed Mr. Dixon on the Hoard of Supervisors of his county, and when Gc corn came mln oilh-e be appointed him of tho Justices of the Peace of his e, He filled both of these positions with great credit, and gave satisfaction to all pat-ties.

In 1800 ho was employed as a teacher under the auspices of the Freed- men's Bureau, and performed said service satisfactorily. Immediately after the passage of tbe reconstruction acts he engaged actively in the campaign in this State to reconstruct her on a firm basis of freedom for all men. He braved many dangers during those terribly exciting times, but feeling that our cause was- just, and that tbe future destiny of our people depended in a large measure upon the reconstruction acts, no duty was too burden- somo for him to perform, no sacrifice too great for him to make, and right manfully did he battle for our glorious cause. When Gen. Ames became Provisional Governor of the State he appointed him as a member of tho Board of Supervisors of his county, and his labors in that capacity gave satisfaction to all parties.

In appearance be exhibits a good degree of ears long, black hair slightly enough for two men, rather i the whole a prepossessing thai ;;iti.< at liio'frout of ex* tions, but be takes a calm and dclib of all matters. He was a member of Board of Supervisors, I think, of his ty under Gen. Ames, and at the election of 1871 he was elected by a large majority Legislature. His constituents have implicit confidence in hira, and will return the Legislature next fall if be wishes ■n. Wore I a strong believer in fore- ordination, 1 would certainly say that my friend, Mr. Gayles, was foreordained for bis present calling—a Baptist minister. His cn- garb goes to make up a preacher. He is short in stature, well built in circumference, and has an exceedingly mild countenance. There are a few others whom I will sketch, id will then wind up with ihe clerks—a jolly set of boys.
