Good shooting.

--The color-bearer of the 10th Tennessee, (Irish,) having been shot down in the battle of Chickamauga, the colonel ordered one of the privates to take the colors. Pat, who was loading at the time replied: "By St. Patrick, Colonel, there's so much good shooting here I haven't a minute's time to waste fooling with that thing.'
