Judge Lyons's Court.

--This Court met yesterday morning at 11 o'clock, and the grand jury brought in true bills of indictment for felony against the following parties; John Cunningham, Eliza Liggon, John Minter and George Green, Patrick McGoven, Chas. Pendergrast, Richard Barry, and Richard L. Saunders.

The habeas corpus case of Armistead Neal, who, claiming to be a Nazarine, contends that he should be exempt from military service, was continued till this morning. He had been arrested by Capt. Charters, Provost Marshal for Richmond in the reserved forces, and his claim that conscientious scruples exempted him from military service being unavailing, he applied to the Judge to be delivered from military custody.
