Dangerous.

--Yesterday morning a deserter on Broad street, near 6th escaped from a military guard and ran off at the top of his speed. Two of them fired on him as he ran, but without impeding his flight. One of the balls fired came nigh striking a lady, who was nearly in its range. Would it not be better to secure military persons in passing along the streets and thus save the necessity of firing on them? By firing at fugitives some innocent person may be killed; whereas, if deserters were in irons or lied, there would be no necessity of firing as them. Will not the military authorities give orders to this effect, and thus insure persons in the streets against the danger of being shot?
