Time permits me only to do the odd numbers:

1. In order to not be accused myself, I accused my friend.

ego ne reus fiam reum amicum fecit.

3. We will leave the sick that we may not be hindered.

deserebimus aegros ne nos impediant.

5. We shall send 200 men in order that we may hinder the enemy's march.

ducentos qui hostium agmen morentur nostros mittemus.

7. He did this in order that a poor man might not be consul.

hoc idcirco fecit ne mendicabulum consul fieret.

9. In order that the enemy might not take the city the whole of the army set out.

I tried to write this one in hexameter verse, naturally to achieve the syllable quorum, I had to alter the English to:

"In order that the enemy might not EASILY capture the WHOLE city, CAMP WAS ABANDONED and the whole of the army went with speed."

cunctum ne hostes caperent cunctam facile urbem
signis convulsis agmen velociter ibat

It's a shame the four spondees of the second line don't do much to convey the swift march!
