J. P. Benjamin.

--The following singular statement is made by the London correspondent of the New York News:

‘ "Mr. Benjamin claims to be a naturalized citizen of England on the ground that his grandfather was a British subject, and that according to the law of England the revolt and treason of the father does not affect his descendants. I am inclined to think that this is bad law, and that Mr. Benjamin will have to reside in England for the usual time before he can obtain letters of naturalization. Meanwhile it is said that he will commence to keep his terms for the purpose of being called to the bar."
