COMPLETE LIST OF KILLED AND WOUNDED IN THE SEVENTH HEAVY ARTILLERY.--Albany, like, many of her sister cities, is called upon to mourn the loss of a number of noble and gallant sons, whose lives were sacrificed in the recent battles. Among other regiments that has suffered greatly in the loss of men, is the 7th Heavy Artillery—better known as the 113th New York Volunteers—a regiment recruited in this city, and composed principally of Albanians. In the list of killed will be found the name of Captain Charles McCulloch. Capt. McC is a well known Albanian. Previous to going off with the 113th he kept a restaurant and fish market in Washington avenue. He raised the 9th Ward Company, of which he was made commandant.
