The Circuit Court for Marshall County has been in session about three weeks. Judge Adams presiding. About 450 judgments have been rendered. Two cases of the McEwen, King & Co. Bank was decided in favor of the defendants. So it appears none but the Directors are liable. In the case of Westbrooks for the murder of Sol. B. Isaacs, Esq., the indictment was quashed in consequence of the incompetence of one of the Grand Jurors plea and abatement was however sustained--The very gentlemanly deportment of his Honor has won for him an excellent name with the Bar and community at large--The court will probably adjourn on to-morrow.
