Hustings Court, yesterday. --Present--Messrs. Sanxay, (presiding,) Bray, Timberlake, Anderson, Clopton, Regnault, and Binford. The court ordered a minute to be entered of record expressive of their respect for the memory of Harvey A. Dudley, deceased, late Deputy Sergeant of this city, and as a tribute to his worth as a man. Patrick McNeal was tried for a misdemeanor by him committed in resisting a police officer while in the discharge of his duty. The jury brought in a verdict of "not guilty." Joseph Vernon, indicted for assault and battery, was next arraigned. After hearing the evidence, the jury retired and brought in a verdict of guilty, and fining the defendant one dollar. To this verdict he excepted, as contrary to the law and the evidence, and moved the court to grant him a new trial, which, however, the court refused to do. He then excepted to the ruling of the court in several particulars, and took leave to file his bill of exceptions to-day. Gentry
