Richmond Circuit Court, November 21, 1864. --In the matter of a writ of habeas corpus of C. H. Taylor, president of the town of Ashland, adjourned until to-day, the Judge, in rendering his decision, remanded the petitioner to the custody of Lieutenant Bates, at the Confederate States Barracks. The learned Judge, in reviewing the arguments of counsel and the clauses of the Constitution creating justices of the peace, decided that the petitioner did not come up to all the requirements of the office, so as to enable him to take advantage of the laws exempting State officers. Sundry other writs were awarded and made returnable on Wednesday next.
