Hustings Court, Tuesday, Dec. 16th.—Judge Wm. H. Lyons presiding.—Sunday wills were admitted, to probate, and a small amount of civil business done, when the Court proceeded to try a habeas corpus case brought up by Messrs. John H. Gilmer and Samuel Byles, on behalf of Thos. J. Corbia, Asa C. Hazle, and Henry C. Hurdle, parties confined in Castle Lightning as suspicious characters. After the case was partly argued, it was, on motion, continued till Thursday for another hearing. The Court sits again to-day.
