Habeas corpus

--Henry Tatum, one of the men engaged in taking the St. Nicholas, was before Judge Lyons yesterday on habeas corpus, praying for his discharge from the county jail, where he has been incorporated at 5 for their incarceration.

An Effort will be made to connect the several railroads, ending at this place, by permanent trucks. A bill has been introduced into both branches of the General Assembly having for its object the uniting, not only of the railroads here, but those ending and starting from Petersburg.

The friends of the bill have stated various and weighty reasons why it should pass, which can hardly fail to have their due effect on the members of the General Assembly, Judge Robertson, Senator from this city, announced his purpose to call up the bill yesterday, but was precluded from so doing by the Senate's going into secret session to consider the bill to raise Virginia's quote of the Confederate army.
