There are varioe reasons aseigned, which ay, however, all be summed up .- the general pr.pceitied-that the grand jury that for murder, the bill was not seuld yted from the list ofoters re gistered under the latesetsof Congress. but from the st egistry made Counrt, fder the laws of the State The dictmnelwhoadndvoc bted the motion, sad the attorney genral who ofcially oppose. it, have both Theresed their desire that all classes of cit zensy, hht be rupresented on the jury.
