Discharged Conditionally.

--John H. Duke, who was brought before Judge Meredith on Saturday on a writ of habeas corpus, was discharged from his imprisonment in the county jail on condition that he joined the Confederate States army, and took the oath of allegiance. Duke, as we have heretofore intimated, is a native of Martinsburg, Va., and a resident of Maryland. During the occupancy of Martinsburg by our troops, he ventured over to see his mother, and was captured and held as a spy. The conditions of the obligations assumed by him have been complied with. So far as he was individually concerned, it is believed that no reason existed to doubt his loyalty to the State of his birth.
