BANKING OPERATIONS. — During the trial of E.

Mr. Constable, for the defence, contended that all the operations of tne Bank were fic titious—that the funds soon after they were paid in by the stockholders were returned to them in New Vork, where all the money belonging to the concern was kept, so that there was nothing left for Collier to steal. The jury acquitted Mr. C. of the fraud against the institution, but if what his coun sel staled be true somebody ought to be in dicated for a fraud upon tho public. Sheriff's Sale.
