Died of his injuries.
--We regret to learn that private Richard Morris
, of company D.
City. Battalion, who accidentally received a gunshot wound in the bowels on Friday afternoon, has since died of his injuries.
, it will be remembered, was standing nigh Castle Thunder when a difficulty occurred between James F. Newsom
, of North Carolina
, and Martin Gripp
, of company F.
Gripp, it seems, gave Newsom
a severe blow in his face, when Newsom
stepped back, levelled his rifle at Gripp and fired, the ball striking G. in the breast, fearing up the flesh as far as the shoulder, then striking and fracturing one of private Frey
's arms, passed off and lodged in the abdomen of Mr. Morris
, causing his death.
The deceased was a man of family and means, and highly respected by his companions in arms.
Some short time after receiving the fatal wound a Yankee prisoner, who is a lawyer, was called in and prepared his will.
Gripp and Frey
were both doing well when heard from yesterday, the wounded arm of the latter having been amputated soon after the accident.
is now in military custody, and will be tried by court martial for the offence of shooting.
