Clarke, at the commencement of his open- ing statement, was asked by the Master of the Rolls whether the case could be brought to an end by Saturday, as after that the Court would for a time be differently constituted. The learned council replied that he was unable to give a pledge to that effect, but he would do ,r5 his best to shorten the case.

The misfeasance charged was of three kinds first, the payment of dividend out of capital; secondly, the making or sanctioning of improper advauces to the directors out of the fuuds j of the company, whereby a loss had accrued and thirdly, the sanctioning of improper advances to customers, and allowing overdrawn accounts and debts to continue where it was reported that the debtor was insolvent, or otherwise unable to repay, j The court adjourned until Thursday.
