Sent to the Castle. --Thomas H. S. Boyd, now confined in Castle Thunder on the charge of deserting the 1st Louisiana regiment in February, 1862, was before Judge Halyburton on a writ of habeas corpus. In April, after deserting, Boyd was commissioned by Governor Letcher as a Lieutenant in the 2d brigade, 4th division Virginia militia, and went into service; but when the militia was turned over the Confederacy Boyd's company was merged with another, and he was thrown out of service. His counsel took the ground that he was illegally detained, as he was a commissioned officer, and, by the articles of war, could not be arrested and held as a private. The Government attorney argued that Boyd was a deserter when commissioned, and consequently could not legally hold the position of an officer. The Judge declined to set the prisoner free, but remanded him to military authority, to be tried for desertion.
Released. --In Judge Halyburton's Court yesterday John R. Lane and George Bates, brought before the Judge on habeas corpus, were heard and released.
Legal opinion --A few days since we noticed the appearance, on writ of habeas corpus, of John R. Lane, a soldier, who, since the act of Congress exempting mail contractors from military duty, has become a contractor. This writ was such out to ensure the release of Lane, who asked to be released from the army, in order that he might fulfill his contract with the Government. Judge Halyburton yesterday gave his opinion on this question, and ordered the release of Lane, thus strengthening the Post-Office Department in its effort to have its contractors put in a condition to fulfill their obligations.
