A deserter

was brought to Richmond Thursday night by a member of Stewart's Cavalry. He belonged to the 93d N. Y. regiment, is a Scotchman by birth, and left because ill treated. He was caught about twenty miles above Richmond. He shot an officer attempting to pass his post without the counter and ever afterwards ‘"caught Jesse."’ This, he says, he could not stand, and left for another locality in hopes of better treatment. He was carried before Assistant Provost Marshal Alexander, and sent to Castle Godwin. The man belonged to the regiment commanded by Col. Crocker, sometime since made a prisoner on the Peninsula by our forces. He was dressed in citizen's clothes.
