Richmond Circuit Court, yesterday.--Judge Meredith presiding.

--In the matter of William H. Zimmerman's petition for a writ of habeas corpus for relief from State militia duty as an undomiciled foreigner, the court this morning delivered its opinion, remanding the party to the custody of Captain Bohman, the respondent in the cause. But, upon application of the counsel for the petitioner, the Court awarded a new trial — continuing the case until Monday next.

In the matter of the petitions for writs of habeas corpus of William H. Redwood and E. J. Crump, for a discharge from Colonel Danforth's regiment of militia, under a joint resolution of the Legislature discharging all persons from the regiment who have attained the age of fifty years, the cause was this day argued by counsel, and the Court reserved its decision until this morning.--The Governor had refused to order the discharge of these men on the ground that a joint resolution has not the effect of law. Mr. R. T. Daniel appeared for the affiants and Hon. J. R. Tucker on behalf of the Commonwealth.
