Running persons through the lines.

--Before Commissioner A. H. Sands, yesterday, the cases against Dr. William Maclure, Robert Kirby, and M. Harris, charged with aiding and abetting persons to reach the Yankee lines, were again taken up. After the examination of witnesses the Commissioner failed to find any evidence convicting the two latter, whereupon Kirby was discharged from custody; but Harris, having a substitute in the service, and being, under a recent act of Congress, liable to military duty, was ordered to be taken to the enrolling officer.

On account of the absence of Judge Crump, counsel for Maclure, his examination was not concluded, but was postponed till Saturday next, and the accused required to give bail to answer for three offences, said surely to be in the sum of $4,000 for the first two, and $3,000 for the third one.
