The assiduity with which their drill (the Hardie drill) is constantly performed has evidently much to do with their general lack of superabundant flesh, while It has given them strong muscles and light active habits as well as bright intelligent looking countenances; and their youthful apjiearance would be no objection to them, i were brave and efficient soldiers wanted.

The result of the examination yesterday was that Judge Crawford remanded the prisoner to j*il to have his bearing u before ordered, and gave three weeks for the witnesses to appear, provided the* do not appear at the time fixed, which ia Monday next. This decision of the Judge gives lb tbe magistrates commitment for a further hearing a power to retain tbe prisoner notwithstanding the writ, and the witnessts from North Carolina can be obtained In tbe time specified without trouble The magistrate, if the witnessed should not appear on next Monday, would probably have dismissed tbe prisoner Now they havs three weeks further time granted to come forward in Officer Allen, seeing that considerable anxiety existed with regard to this man, suspected that be might be connected with other similar transactions in this vicinity, and especially tbe Armstrong f&se. which was tried a week ago In that case, Mr. Prlxxell, who arrested Armstrong and his white companion, not being able to secure three men at once, lost a white man who broke from bim. leaving bis vest, in tbe pockets of which w?re some papers Allen sent for Frizzell, w,ao came to the city and Went to the jail, and there Identified Halleck as the very man who earapeti from him.
