n the first day of the battle of Shiloh, we are happy to inform our readers, is alive, with strong hopes of recovery, though it is feared he will have to lose his leg — a Minis ball having passed through and shattered the big bone below the knee.--He is now at Columbus Mississippi, where every effort is being made to soon restore to the military service so valuable an office. As Colonel of the Second Tennessee regiment of Confederate States volunteers, he was placed as the advance of Hardee's division, and was thus the first to open the ball. His gallant regiment encountered a vastly superior force of the enemy, and, commanding their fire from almost every point, suffered terribly. The Major, Wm. R. Doak, a former member of the Legislature from Bedford and Rutherford counties, was killed as also the Captains, three Lieutenants, and at least one-third of the other officers, were wounded. Col. Bate's splendid charger, Black Hawk was killed by the same fire that wounded his master.
