Sentenced to be shot.

--The decision of the military Court-Martial in the case of the prisoners arrested for the murder of Adjutant Richard Mallett, from Raleigh, N. C., near Scottsville, Va., a few days since, was made known yesterday. Their names are:

These men were deserters, from the C. S. service, and Adjutant Mullott and guard had been sent to arrest them and, having discovered them, were about making their arrest, when they turned and fired, killing the Adjutant in his tracts. The guard immediately returned the fire, severely wounding one of them, (Henson Fulch,) whose trial has not yet taken place. The verdict of the Court in the case of these murderers sentences them to be hung on to-morrow (Saturday) in the presence of Gen. Edward Johnston's command, Ewell's division, Army of Northern Virginia. There is no doubt they will expiate their crime at the time appointed.

Let their terrible doom be an admonition to all who have ever thought of committing the damnable act of traitor to their country, and teach them that loyalty and devotion to the cause in is the only course which is honorable and right to pursue.
