Mr. Smith and Mr. Newlon both made excellent speeches on the same side, urging the people to act a noble part. Mr. Burdett spoke in a subdued tone, neither sustaining nor opposing the Ordinance. He most earnestly, however, joined the other speakers in recommending peace, unanimity, and harmony of action among the people.

Richmond Circuit Court. --In the matter of Jonathan B. Rogers, of Nelson county, who sued out in this Court a few weeks since a writ of habeas corpus under the law of Congress granting exemption to shoemakers, the case came on to be heard this day, and after testimony and arguments by counsel, (G. A. Myers, Esq., for the plaintiff, and Mr. James Neeson for the Government,) the Judge decided that he did not come fully up to the standard of exempts as required by the law, inasmuch as he failed to prove himself as well a skillful as a habitual worker at his trade, and therefore remanded him back to Camp Lee, whence his writ had brought him. A petition for a writ of habeas corpus, returnable on to-morrow week, was granted to James Wharton, of Greenbrier, to get his son out of the service in consequence of his being under age and entering the army without the consent of his parents.

The petitioner based his claim for exemption on the fact of having been recently, and while in service, elected as a Justice of the Peace, and under the conscript law and the resolutions of the Legislature, entitled to a discharge. The only testimony offered was the certificate of his election by the County Court and the recommendation of the Governor for his exemption. The counsel for the Government made str exertions to deafest this claim, as it would set a precedent for other cases of a similar character. They claimed that after a man has once got into the service, th
