--The jury for the trial of Joseph Bernard
, indicted in the Circuit Court of Henrico
for the murder of John O. Taylor
, has not yet been empaneled.
A motion was made on Saturday by the prisoner's counsel to continue the case, on the ground of the absence of a witness, now in the army, which was argued at length by Messrs. James Lyons
and John B. Young
, and overruled by the court.
, for the defence, then moved to quash the venire facias,
which was overruled without argument.
The venire was called, and the case set for Monday morning at eleven o'clock.
