The Hustings Court, Judge Lyons on the bench, on Saturday, after transacting some unimportant routine business, resumed the consideration of the habeas corpus ease of Mr. Webster. Mr. Howard, his counsel, spoke for several hours in reply to the speeches of the Attorney General and Mr. Tazewell, made the day before, and in presenting his own views of the matter. When he had concluded, His Honor intimated that the opinion of the court would be pronounced on Tuesday.

The court then adjourned.
