Supreme Court of Appeals--Totty's case. --The application for a writ of habeas corpus on behalf of William D. Totty, convicted in Judge Lyons' Court of murder in the first degree, and sentenced to be hanged on Saturday next, has been considered by the Court of Appeals, and its judgment was pronounced yesterday. The application necessarily involved the question as to the constitutionality of the act creating that Court, and the writ prayed for was denied, all the Judges of the Court of Appeals being of opinion that it was within the competency of the General Assembly to create the new Hustings Court, and that the act for that purpose was free from any constitutional objection.
Political. --A discussion will take place tonight at Metropolitan Hall, between James Lyons and John H. Gilmer, Esqs. The Bell and Everett party will be addressed in their Club House by Hon. John S. Pendleton, of Culpeper county.
