Federal Court--Judge Halyburton presiding.

--In the U. S. Circuit Court yesterday, the Grand Jury returned true bills against Capt. Lockhart, of the "Storm King." for engaging in the slave trade, and against two foreigners interested in the same enterprise. The crew of the vessel were discharged from further prosecution, but detained in jail as witnesses in the case. A true bill was returned against John Gaskins, for purloining letters, and against Frederick Brooks, a negro, for a similar offence. The Grand Jury will meet again to-day, to consider other cases.
