Rhodes, of the 1st Confederate infantry, was shot at noon to-day, for encouraging desertions from his own company, and embezzling the money of substitutes.

The same paper has the following: It is one of the novel features of the present political campaign that the party whose candidate runs upon a purely military record depends chiefly for its success upon the defeat of our armies in the field.--Prevaricate or deny
