Not so. --We see that our Southern exchanges still continue to copy a paragraph first started at the North, to the effect that Private Taylor, who murdered Lieut. J. G. Davidson, of the 1st Regiment of Tennessee Volunteers, at Lynchburg, had been tried at Richmond, on the 21st of May, by court martial, and ordered to be shot. The story is all bosh. When the military officers came to examine into the matter, they found that the men of the Tennessee Regiment had not been mustered into service at the time of the offence, and consequently they could not try Taylor by military law. Had he been tried by court-martial, he would no doubt have been shot. As it was, nothing could be done but turn the offender over to the civil authorities. Taylor is now in jail at Lynchburg, awaiting trial where he committed the offence.
