C. S. District Court.

--In Judge Halyburton's Court yesterday, the following cases were disposed of:

Sion P. Liodges, claiming exemption on the ground that he was over the age of forty-five years when conscripted, the Court after fully considering the petition, testimony of witnesses and arguments of counsel and being of opinion that the said Sion P. Hodges, is not liable to military service, and that he is illegally detained in custody by Major T G Peyton, ordered his discharge.

Upon the application of Charles B. Morris, by Richard E. Morris, his father and next friend, setting forth that he is illegally detained in custody by Capt. J. Monroe Heiskell, and asking for an exemption, the Court, after full consideration of the case, decided that the said Charles B. Morris is not liable to the performance of military service; that he is illegally detained, and ordered his discharge, from the fact that the said Charles B. Morris enlisted before he was seventeen years of age, and without the knowledge or consent of his father.

On Monday next the Grand Jury for this Court will hear and decide upon such indictments as may be submitted for their consideration.
