McDonald Still at the Arsenal—Habeas Corpus Movement.

From The Missouri Democrat, Tuesday, May 14, 1861.

MCDONALD STILL AT THE ARSENAL—HABEAS CORPUS MOVEMENT.—The indomitable Captain Emmet McDonald, late commanding the corps of Riflemen of the Southwest battalion, heroically remains the sole prisoner at the United States Arsenal. His brother officers have obtained their liberty by pledging their word of honor not to fight against the government of the United States. The private soldiers were dismissed upon taking the oath of allegiance to the Constitution of the United States. Capt. McDonald declines to give such pledge or take such oath, and in so doing acts far more honorably than he would by a compliance for the sake of regaining his freedom. At the Arsenal, the gallant Captain is treated courteously, and enjoys the liberty of the grounds and the society of visiting friends.

Yesterday, however, an active effort was making to obtain his release by habeas corpus. The writ is asked for at the hands of Judge Treat, of the U. S. District Court. His decision will doubtless be particularly interesting as involving the constitutional question which some would raise with reference to the capture of Camp Jackson.
