Dennis Driscoll, of Marmaduke Johnson's battery, from Richmond, Va., was executed at noon Friday by shooting, for the crime of desertion.--His wife came up and took charge of his body and took it to Richmond for interment.

That time has now passed, however, and I believe that every sentence will be rigidly carried into execution.
