From the Richmond Dispatch, 4/29/1862, p. 2, c. 3

Hung Jury. The trial of John Walthall, for the murder of William Hamilton, was begun before Judge Lyons yesterday. It will be remembered that Walthall shot Hamilton, Sergeant of the Guard at the C. S. Military Prison, last summer, after being ironed by him for getting drunk. Major G. C. Gibbs an important witness for the State, testified before the jury yesterday. The case was not concluded, the jury remaining in custody of the City Sergeant last night.
