Under sentence of death. --A soldier named Patrick McGowan, formerly belonging to Company E, 59th Virginia regiment, Captain Gustavus A. Wallace, is now confined in Castle Thunder under sentence of death, a court-martial having condemned him to be shot for desertion. It appears that McGowan was not taken prisoner at Roanoke Island, and that after that event, a majority of his comrades being necessarily compelled to take no part in the war on account of their parole, he entered another codeath, a court-martial having condemned him to be shot for desertion. It appears that McGowan was not taken prisoner at Roanoke Island, and that after that event, a majority of his comrades being necessarily compelled to take no part in the war on account of their parole, he entered another company as a substitute, and had been in several actions, that of the 30th of August, at Manassas, included, when he left his comrades and came to Richmond. Here he was apprehended, tried, and condemned.

Three men to be shot. --The court-martial now in session here has condemned three soldiers to be shot for desertion in the face of the enemy, one or more of whom had been lately received as substitutes in the respective companies from which they hail. The parties are now confined in Castle Thunder under strict guard. Their names are David W. Rogers, of company G, 1st Regiment Va. Vols.; Patrick McGowan, of company 1, 14th Virginia, and John Kelleher, of company F, same regiment. The execution, which has been appointed to take place at 11 o'clock next Wednesday, at Camp Lee, will be conducted under the supervision of Capt. G. W. Alexander, Assistant Provost Marshall of the Eastern District. All three of the men will be shot at one time. As is known in all executions by military law, a dozen men are selected as executioners, only six of whose muskets are loaded. When the above unhappy men are placed in a triangular position, with twelve men firing on each of them, they will

The condemned men. --In noticing the fact a few days since that David W. Rogers, Patrick McGowan, and John Kellaher were condemned to be shot for desertion, we added on information furnished us, the words, "in face of the enemy." We are informed by note from the unfortunate men in question that they did not leave their regiments until three or four days after the battle of the 30th of August; and that in the case of John Kellaher, not till he was unable to proceed further in pursuit of the flying foe.

Pardoned. --B. W. Rogers, a soldier heretofore sentenced to be shot on Friday next, at Camp Lee, for desertion, was pardoned yesterday by the President, in consequence of an authenticated instance of the bravery of the condemned man being brought to his notice.--He has been released and sent to his regiment. The other two condemned men — Patrick McGowan and John Kellaher — sentenced by Court Martial to be shot at the same time, for the same offence, will, we understand, be executed on Saturday. These men have been reprieved once, and they entertain some hope of the Executive clemency being extended to them — on what grounds we know
To be shot. --Patrick McGowan and John Kellaner, two soldiers belonging to Virginia regiments, are to be shot to-day at 11 o'clock, at Camp Lee, under the direction of the Provost Marshal. We learn that the two unhappy men will be started from Castle Thunder to the place of execution at a quarter before 10 o'clock, in a carriage, attended by a cavalry escort. No doubt to make the scene as impressive as possible, all the soldiers that can be gotten together will be paraded on the Fair Grounds to-day. Up to last night we are inclined to believe that the condemned men indulged so the hopes of being pardoned. That idea seemed to fade from their minds as the sun slowly sunk to rest and no tidings of a respite arrived.

Judge Lyons's Court, yesterday. --George Turner, convicted of petit larceny, was yesterday sentenced to imprisonment in the penitentiary for one year. James Williams, convicted of petit larceny, was also sentenced to imprisonment in the penitentiary for one year. The Court directed that five years additional be added, the prisoner having already served one term in this institution. Patrick McGowan, indicted for stealing bacon from Lucien Peyronet, was put upon trial, and after examination of witnesses and argument of counsel the case was given to the jury; but they being unable to agree after an hour's deliberation, the Judge discharged them, and admitted the accused to ball for his appearance at the next term. The jury in the case of John Ford, indicted for felony, had not agreed at late hour.
