We like fun and had it yesterday.

As the steamer Vicksburg hove in sight at the Point yesterday evening, one of the United States gunboats let slide two shots at her, one of them passing through her cabin.  The last was very good, but the Vicksburg turned and went “kiting” up the river again. – {Natchez Courier.
