Judge Lyons's Court.

--Judge Lyons held his Court yesterday morning, but disposed of no business except the habeas corpus case of Armistead Neale, which we mentioned yesterday. Neale, it seems having complied with the requisitions of the Confederate Conscript law, has been exempted by the Confederate authorities. Under these circumstances he was arrested by Capt. Charters, Provost of the Virginia militia, and from this arrest he prayed to be delivered.--The Judge having heard the case, remanded Neale to the custody of Capt. Charters, but recommended his counsel to lay the case before the Governor.

The Court then adjourned.
