Capt. Littler

CAPT. LITTLER. – The Keokuk Gate City of Friday last says, “That a private letter from Pittsburg dated the 12th, says Capt. Bob Littler was not expected to live at that time.”

CAPT. LITTLER. – Later advices, we take pleasure in announcing, render it very probable that Capt. Littler will recover from his recent terrible wound. He was brought down to St. Louis last week and arrived there on Friday. Capt. Cox, of Clinton Co., who was with him on the steamer Empress, on the way down the Tennessee river, reports Capt. Littler’s condition as very favorable, as does Mr. Price, of this city who was with him before he left Pittsburg.
