From the Mobile, Alabama Newspaper:
• More about Mobilians at the battle at Shiloh:
"We can whip twice or three times our numbers, with all the advantages in their favor, as I think this last battle fully proves. They were supplied with better arms than we, but it did no good to them; they had three times the numbers of artillery pieces we had, and we silenced every one of their batteries before we left the field. To sum it all up I regard the battle of Shiloh as a decided victory for us, and from reports the Yankees coincide with me in that opinion. It is said they have yesterday and to-day abandoned their old position and embarked on boats to Iuka, a place some distance further up the river, with what intention we know not. As for our side we are getting all straight, caring for the sick and wounded as well as circumstances will permit, and with a few thousand fresh fighting men can whip our way through Tartarus if necessary. Yours always, J.P. BARNES.
"P.S. -- We marched through about five miles of their encampments and fortifications, charging rifle pits, etc. -- and at different times with the assistance of a single regiment, put to flight a whole brigade with their artillery. Capt. Ketchum was stricken by a fragment of shell, reeled, and recovered his horse, and is now in excellent health. -- His boy Henry captured a mule from under the enemy's batteries and had not mounted him five minutes when a shell took away the mule's head; the boy was not hurt."
• "Official list of casualties in Company A, State Artillery, Capt. Wm. H. Ketchum: Killed, -- John Ashby. Wounded. -- Edward Debois, H.H. Maury, Jos. G. Bowers, Fred. Veaglin, W.Y. Strong, John McGuire; slightly, Richard Moore, John Bressler.
"There were 14 horses killed and wounded."
