Good firing.

--The Pensacola correspondent of the Mobile Evening News writes:

On Friday, Lieut. Howard sent a forty-two pound cannon ball through a target a mile distant. The shot was fired from one of the guns of the ‘"Bradford Battery." ’ Yesterday morning he fired a forty-two pound shot from the ‘"Ladies' Battery," ’ which ricocheted within two hundred yards of the opposite shore, a distance of near four miles. Look out, ‘"Mister Ingion."’
