Richmond Newspaper on How Army Dealt with Deserters

The Richmond Times Dispatch printed a brief report on the action in northwest Georgia, and how the army there was dealing with deserters.

From North Georgia. Dalton, May 6. –The enemy have been almost at a stand still to-day. They are repairing both railroads as they advance, and have a chain of pickets which renders it impossible to learn what is going on inside.–The enemy’s pickets were 111/2 miles from Tunnel Hill at 2 o’clock. Gen. Johnston has issued an order granting pardon-to all persons under arrest except those accused of plundering and pilfering.
