Federal Court. --Antonio Fernandez and Joseph Silva, indicted for engaging in the slave trade on board the brig Storm King, were arraigned before Judge Halyburton yesterday. The same jury that tried Calleros were sworn in these cases. But one witness was introduced, and the jury, under instructions, promptly returned a verdict of >"not guilty." The trial of Capt. Lockhart will probably take place on the 25th inst., and we hope the result will be the same. We imagine that under existing circumstances, the most minute points would have to be proved beyond possibility of controversy, to induce a jury to convict a man of piracy because he was found on board a vessel with a cargo of Africans.
