From the Richmond Sentinel, 3/17/1863, p. 1, c. 7
Explosion. – No additional deaths
from the explosion were reported yesterday up to 3 o’clock. There was a rumor at
the Laboratory that two more were dead, but it was not confirmed. Of those who
were reported in yesterday’s paper as wounded, it is believed that the greater
portion will recover, though some four or five are in a dangerous situation. The
subscriptions for the relief of the needs have been quite liberal.
