The girl was evidently astonished at a visitor in Quaker costume, and of such grave demeanor; but she went and did the errand. A message was returned that her mistress was engaged and could not see any one. Where is she? he inquired. The girl replied that she was up-stairs. I will go to her, said the importunate messenger. The mistress of the house heard him, and leaning over the balustrade of the stairs, she screamed out, What do you want with me, sir?

Richmond Circuit Court, yesterday. In the matter of a petition of James Simpson for a writ of habeas corpus, praying to be discharged from Colonel Danforth's regiment of militia, as coming under the purview of the joint resolution of the Legislature, a writ was issued returnable to-day; and, after proving his age, the court ordered his discharge. Josiah H. Harris, of Hanover county, came before court yesterday under a writ issued and directed to Captain Grover. His application for discharge was based upon the fact that, in May last, he was elected an overseer of the poor for said county. The military authorities having refused to release him, he sues out a writ, and upon the hearing of the case was remanded to the custody of the officer who had him in charge.
