Richmond Circuit Court. --In the matter of Jonathan B. Rogers, of Nelson county, who sued out in this Court a few weeks since a writ of habeas corpus under the law of Congress granting exemption to shoemakers, the case came on to be heard this day, and after testimony and arguments by counsel, (G. A. Myers, Esq., for the plaintiff, and Mr. James Neeson for the Government,) the Judge decided that he did not come fully up to the standard of exempts as required by the law, inasmuch as he failed to prove himself as well a skillful as a habitual worker at his trade, and therefore remanded him back to Camp Lee, whence his writ had brought him. A petition for a writ of habeas corpus, returnable on to-morrow week, was granted to James Wharton, of Greenbrier, to get his son out of the service in consequence of his being under age and entering the army without the consent of his parents.
