On this second one, the transcription of the second character is incorrect, I'm not sure which it is, but appears to have as many as 20 strokes.
Some guesses of possible readings
左* (unknown name)
貴生 Takao (family name)
捕入 Toshio (male given name) Not sure if your transcription of the 5th character is correct
*の圖 * no zu ("The scene of")
The date of publication is Meiji 27, 10th month, 14th day, meaning in October of 1894. The scene appears to be captured and wounded Chinese being brought into tents in a Japanese military infirmary.
Maybe the context will give some clues, but I could not read this one either.
