Capt. Eaton, the deserter from the Lincoln camps at Calhone, has been sworn into the Confederate service at Hopkinsville, and has gone to Georgia, his native State, for the purpose of organising a company for the war. At Memphis, Tenn., on the morning of the 10th inst., two prisoners who were being conveyed from that place to the Tennessee penitentiary, at Nashville, escaped from the custody of the sheriff who had them in charge. A negro boy in the employ of C. A. Phatt & Co., at Augusta, Ga., while oiling the machinery when the chart was in motion, became entangled and was whittled around several times, causing his death in a few minutes.
