Respited. – Charles Shelton, a member of the 5th
regiment Texas volunteers, who was condemned by Court-Martial to be shot to-day
for desertion, was respited by the President on Saturday. The prisoner, who is
confined at Castle Thunder, has been receiving religious advice and consolation
from several of our city clergymen since his condemnation.
