JUDGE LYONS'S COURT. – In this court, yesterday, very little business was done.

The case of Robert S. Forde was called, but from the same influences which have prompted previous postponements, it was again put off. Forde, it will be recollected, was converted last winter of the murder of Robert E. Dixon and sentenced to eighteen years imprisonment in the penitentiary; but in appeal was subsequently taken to the Court of Appeals, when that court granted the prisoner a new trial.
