--Some time after the discharge of M. Harris, who was before Commissioner A. H. Sands yesterday on the charge of attempting to reach the Yankee lines, in violation of the Confederate laws, detective John Reese, by authority of District Attorney, Patrick H. Aylett, rearrested and committed him to Castle Thunder, on the charge of being a deserter from the Confederate army, and attempting to cross the lines. Mr. Aylett takes the ground that Harris, having a substitute in the Confederate service, is therefore liable, according to a recent act of Congress, to military duty, and has constituted himself a deserter in attempting to get to the Yankee lines.

A man named Paul was also sent to Castle Thunder on the charge of obtaining a passport to leave the city on false pretences.
