Judge Lyons’s Court. - Robert S. Forde, charged with the murder of Robert E. Dixon, was arraigned for trial before Judge Lyons on Saturday, but, in consequence of inability to procure witnesses and jurors, the case was continued till the next term.
In the matter of Edward King, claiming exemption from military service under a writ of habeas corpus, the Judge decided adversely to the petitioner, and he was thereupon remanded back to the custody of Captain William R. Drinkard, commandant of a company in Colonel Danforth’s regiment.
The habeas corpus ease of Horace E. Hayden was postponed till this morning.
