Hustings Court.

--In accordance with the order of the previous day the case of Robert S. Forde, charged with the murder of Robert E. Dixon, Clerk of the House of Representatives, was taken up in this Court yesterday. Mr. Crump, for the defence, submitted a motion for a continuance of the case until the next term of the Court, on account of the absence of material witnesses. The motion was argued throughout the entire day by Messrs. Crump and Randolph, and Senators Simms and Burnett, of Kentucky, counsel for the defence, and Mr. Daniel, attorney for the Commonwealth. The Court, at a late hour last evening, decided to grant the motion, and the case was accordingly continued to the next term, commencing on the second Monday in June.
