County Court.

--The Justices Court of Henrico were in session yesterday, and disposed of a large amount of business, but had before them no important criminal cases. As all the Magistrates are to meet on Saturday next, it is to be hoped that the subject of county roads will receive attention, and that commissioners will be appointed and instructed to proceed at once to put the Deep Run Meadow Bridge, Mechanicville, and other important roads leading to this city, in good order before winter sets in. The present overseers cannot command the force necessary to do the work, and, if the matter is left with them, there highways will be impassable during the winter months. Henrico county owes it to the army of Virginia, as well as to the people of the county, to have her public thoroughfares passable, and she should make them so at any cost.
