Shot by a sentinel,

--Wm. C. Buck, a prisoner of war, a Corporal in the 10th company of the 79th New York regiment, was shot on Saturday by a Confederate sentinel, for turbulence and disobedience of orders. The prisoner was, contrary to orders, leaning out of a window, and when told to withdraw himself cursed and abused the sentinel outrageously, and dared him to shoot; which, in obedience to the orders he had received from his superiors, he proceeded to do. Buck was buried the same day.
