Finals of the Bradley trial.

--The Military Commission at Savannah, Georgia, before which Aaron A. Bradley was recently tried for using seditious language in a public meeting, has found him "guilty" of the several charges and sentenced him to hard labor at Fort Pulaski for one year. Bradley had told the slaves they were to have their masters' lands, &c., &c.

In defending himself, Bradley argued that the admission of Western Virginia into the Union as a State has settled the question that all revolted States thereby became territories under the rule and regulation of Congress.
