--Five Marylanders, members of Dement
's battery, who were discharged from service by decision of Judge Halyburton
yesterday morning, were much surprised on attempting to retire from the building to find a guard stationed at the door ready to put them into the State
Foreseeing what would be the decision upon their pending petition, District Attorney Aylett
had previously conferred with Governor Smith
, the result of which was that that distinguished functionary determined to exact militia service from all Marylanders, and accordingly sent his guard to take them in custody.
Sooner than serve with the militia, however, the five discharged applicants declined for the present to leave their original organization.
