Not a deserter.

--Serg't J. Walton, a member of co. G, 7th Georgia battalion, who was shot not long ago while attempting to escape from a military prison in this city, was not a deserter, but was on his way to join his company, which had been sent to Jackson. He had been off on furlough, but not having the proper papers with him, was arrested and placed in the prison, in an ill advised attempt to escape from which he was killed.
