Explosion of shell — there persons killed and four wounded. --Between 12 and 1 o'clock yesterday, as some negroes were engaged in unloading a lot of condemned shell which had been sent to the "battery," on the canal, near the pump-house, one of them exploded, and communicating with a pile of others, caused about twenty-five or thirty of them likewise to explode. Three negroes were killed outright and two others were severely wounded. Mr. Nicholas Ingersoll, the foreman of the place, was also mortally wounded. He had both of his legs broken and mangled, his head and face badly cut and bruised, and a piece of shell was driven into the lower part of his stomach. A Confederate lieutenant whose name we could not learn, was wounded by a fragment of shell while waiting to take a boat to Belle Isle, some five or six hundred yards off.
