Thursday, January 22, 1863

It is stated in a Southern paper that of the 10,000 Missourians led by the rebel Gen Price in May last, not more than 2500 are left fit for service, survivors of the casualties of battles & camps.
The rebel Gen Bragg estimates his loss at Murphreesboro at 9000.  Breakenridge’s division lost 1800 killed outright.  So all the sorrow & loss is not ours -- they are getting their punishment.
