President Grant and party returned
from Annapolis, Maryland, this evening.
A. A. Corbin and bride, the President's
sister, arrived to-night, and are stopping
at the Executive Mansion.
The Attorney General, at the request of
the Comptroller of Currency, has given
an opinion that National Banking Asso
ciations cannot legally, be converted
into State] Banks, and thus relieve
themselves of obligations under the
National Bank Act. The question comes
up in a case of the - National Farmers and
,Mechanics Bank of Albany, New York,
which claims to have been converted
into a National -Banking Association
under an act of the New- York Legisla
ture, adopted April 20th, 1857. The
Attorney General says "I am of the opin
ion that, it is not within the power
of the Uzi-stature of New York to alter,
modify, add to. or diminish the powers,
duties, or liabilities created or contierred
upon a B.anklng Association established
under an act of Congress.'?
—The attendance on the trial of Robin
son, the alleged murderer of Genera
McConnell, at Jacksonville, Ills., was
much larger yesterday than on Tuesday.
Much interest is manifested and many
strangers aro in the city watching its de
velopments. • On ordering a new panel
ofjurors, Tuesday evening, it was deemed
almost impossible to obtain a jury for the
trial of the cause, but yesterday morn
ing tilled the jury full, four
persons having been accepted, corn
plating the necessary number. The
legal talent employed in th 4 e cause, and
the earnest attention they are giving it,
show that every possible effort, both by
the prosecution ,and defence, will be
made to thoroughly sift the circumstan
ces attending the matter. The state of .
feverish anxiety which has followed the
commission of this terrible crime, still
continues, and it is the evident determi
nation of all parties that nothing should
be left undone to clear up the horrible
mystery. Most of the morning was con
sumed in arguing the'right by the prose
cution to challenge in selecting a jury in
ex !wet facto criminal cases. The Court
'held the law passed by the last General
Assembly, allowing the prosecution the •
right to challenge twenty jurors, was ap
plicable to all cases c and , that the prose
cntion this cause wail so entitled, to
which ruling the defense objected. The
entire afternoon was occupied in opening
up the case to the jury.
