Judge Lyons's Court.

--The following is a synopsis of the business disposed of in this court yesterday:

Frank Morris, otherwise called Frank Hermann, charged with the murder and robbery of Michael Rourke, was led to the bar; but, on motion of the Attorney for the Commonwealth, the case was postponed till the next term, and the prisoner was thereupon remanded to jail.

Catherine Collins, indicted for feloniously stealing goods, was convicted and sentenced to six months confinement in the city jail.

A writ of habeas corpus was awarded on the motion of Henry C. G. Hartman, alleging that he is illegally held in custody by Lieutenant W. H. Blackford. Returnable this morning at 11 o'clock.

The court thereupon adjourned.
