Hustings Court. --We noticed last week the trial and conviction of John A. H. R. Armistead, for grand larceny, and his motion in arrest of judgment. The motion was overruled by Judge Lyons, and on Saturday the prisoner was sentenced to three years confinement in the penitentiary. The execution of the sentence is suspended for forty days, to give the prisoner an opportunity to take the case to the Court of Appeals. It is not that he cares so much about the three years; but this being hi but this being his third conviction, it subjects him to imprisonment for life. George W. Heckler, a member of Caskie's Rangers, applied to Judge Lyons for a discharge from the service under a writ of habeas corpus, on the ground that he was not 18 years of age when he enlisted. The application was refused, after an elaborate amusement, and the soldier received orders to return to his camp. The case of Edward S. Gentry, involving a question of status, is continued to the next term.
