Killed while attempting to desert to the enemy.

--One night last week, Thomas B. Stoneman, member of the Tredegar battalion and an employee at the Tredegar Iron Works, was shot and killed, below the city, while attempting to desert to the Yankees. He had succeeded in passing the inner line of pickets, and had gone considerably beyond the outer line before being discovered by the sentinel, who, as soon as he saw him, levelled his gun and fired, sending a ball through his body, which instantly killed him. Another member of the same company was with him, but he succeeded in getting through.
