John Lockhart are still unable to agree on a verdict. In the Hustings Court, the case of the people vs. Lea and Brannon was given to the jury last evening, but at night, reporting themselves as unable to agree, they were given in charge of the Sergeant, and the prisoners were sent back to jail. We regret to say that the condition of the venerable Judge Hopkins was still such, last evening, as to leave little hope of his recovery.
