--The Chattanooga (Tenn.)
correspondent of the Augusta Chronicle
, writing on the 25th ult., says:
Saturday afternoon I witnessed another execution.
First-Lieut. W. H. White
, 4th Georgia cavalry, was hung for being guilty my, advising desertion, and deserting himself.
He was a young man, about twenty three years of age. He stood the trial like a man. The rope failed to break his neck, and he died very hard — struggling for three or four minutes. It was a horrid sight.
