--A man named O. H. Hobson, member of company K, 9th Virginia infantry, was committed to Castle Thunder yesterday on the charge of desertion from the Confederate service.
This is the sixth time Hobson has been guilty of desertion.
On two other occasions, when his conduct had been seriously decided on by court-martials, he escaped punishment by the clemency offered in the President's proclamations.
