Impressment of flour. --A few days since the agents of the Confederate Government impressed a large quantity of flour in the hands of merchants and others for the use of the army. Among those whose property was seized was Mr. William B. Isaacs, who a short time after the sezore procured an injunction from Judge Wm. H. Lyons, restraining the Government from using the flour until the question could be determined whether they had the legal right to impress it at a less than its market value. The argument in the case which is of some importance to the individual citizen, was commenced yesterday before Judge Lyons at the City Hall, Messrs. Geo. W. Randolph and Andrew Johnston appearing for Mr. Isaacs, and Messrs. Arthur A. Morson and Pat. Henry Aylett for the War Department. The case will probably be under investigation for a week or more. In the opening by the plaintiff's counsel a great number of authorities were quoted, a list of which were handed to the Judge for reference.
Jenkins made a return to the writ to the effect that he held Mr. Pate legally, first as a private in the 19th regiment of Va. militia; second, by virtue of an agreement between the Governor of Virginia and General Kemper and the Secretary of War, by which the 19th regiment had been made, for certain purposes, a portion of the reserved force of Virginia; and third, that he was held in arrest for trial by a military court martial, convened by order of the Governor of Virginia. Messrs. Patrick Henry Aylett and Edward Y. Cannon represented Mr. Pate, and the Attorney General of Virginia, John Randolph Tucker, appeared for Captain Jenkins. The case was argued at great length and with unusual ability, and the decision of the Judge was delayed by his absence from the city in consequence of illness in his family. Judge Lyons decided that, as an enrolled conscript between the ages of eighteen and forty-five years, Mr. Pate had been regularly detailed by the President to perform dutie
derate States Treasurer, arrested Tuesday evening on the charge of being about to engage in a duel with deadly weapons, were brought before the Mayor to answer the offence. Hon. Humphrey Marshall appeared as counsel for Mr. Elmore, and Hon. Patrick Henry Aylett acted in the same capacity for Mr. Pollard. The Mayor, on calling the case, explained why it was that he had refused on the evening of the arrest to admit Mr. Elmore to bail. He stated that after Mr. Elmore had been taken into custodyLadd as to the locality of the place of meeting, who decided that it was at a point beyond his jurisdiction; whereupon Mr. Elmore was sent to a county justice for examination. This case being disposed of, so far as the Mayor was concerned, Mr. Aylett asked that, as Mr. Pollard's name had not been mentioned in connection with the duel, he might be discharged. This was objected to by his Honor, who stated that upon information received from certain parties he had good reason to believe that

ted and lodged in Castle Thunder upon the charge of having offered a bribe to a detective connected with the War Office. Charges having been preferred against him, he was about to be tried by one of the military courts, when he objected to its jurisdiction upon the ground that he was a civilian and was entitled to be tried by the civil courts. The military court having decided adversely to his plea, he applied to the Confederate States District Court for a writ of habeas corpus to enable him to have the question of his military status determined. It was elaborately argued by General Marshall that Boyd was a civilian and not subject to the articles of war, whilst it was as strenuously and as elaborately insisted by Mr. Aylett, the district attorney, that although not an enlisted soldier, he was in the performance of military duties, which made him liable to be tried by a military court. The argument of counsel not having been concluded, the case was continued until to-day.
utes' duration, during which he cited various legal decisions in similar cases, and read from the statutes of Virginia to sustain him in the demand which he made of the Justices. The question was further argued till four o'clock by Hon. Patrick Henry Aylett and General Humphrey Marshall, counsel for the defence, who contended that while the acts of the Legislature on the subject of duelling were couched in the language quoted by Mr. Young, yet the decision of the courts, which were paramoun the subject of duelling passed by the Legislature were severely criticised by the counsel for the defence, and were, they contended, of such a character as, if carried out, would rob our citizens of every right of independence and justice. Messrs. Aylett and Marshall argued their points at great length, but the limited space afforded precludes us from making any extended notice of their remarks. At a few minutes past four o'clock the motion for commitment was left in the hands of the Jus
learly of the opinion that Dr. Peticolas is bound to answer the questions put to him by the Commonwealth's attorney." Mr. Young.--Doctor, I again put the question to you. [It was the same as reported above.] Dr. Peticolas.--I respectfully decline to answer. In accordance, therefore, with the decision as announced by Justices Riddick and Lee, Dr. Petico- las then stood in the position of a man condemned to imprisonment for contempt of court, but immediately afterwards Mr. Patrick Henry Aylett, his counsel, drew a petition for a writ of habeas corpus in behalf of his client, and at once obtained from Judge Meredith's writ commanding the sheriff of Henrico to bring Dr. Peticolas before him at the State court-house. The order was complied with, and before two o'clock the Doctor was admitted to bail, and required to appear at 12 o'clock to-day at the State court-house, when the argument of his case will commence. Subsequent to the above proceedings, Mr. Young asked the
