All In a lump. ? . -l - i ne excitement relative 10 me uuimuouwu. ?? County Officers to be supported at the ensuing election is tast reaching Jts summit, as but three short weeks arc to p iss over before the contest will be decided The Democrats with all thetr aliases have nominated candidates for Sheiifl, County Clerk, and five Members of Assembly, the names ..i which have been previously given. The Whigs have selected a Sheriff, a County Clerk, and Coroner, and 1 i?t evening, at the Broadway IIou*, nominated flu* lollowing named eight candidates tor the Ltgi lature i? . Rickant s. WiUlumi, merchant, ot 4th ward. Robert Smith, stone mason, ot 16th ward httindge O Baldwin, plsue maker, of 16th ward, s.iinui'l Webster, shin joiner, of ll'.h ward. Augustus L. Brown, lawyer, of 16th ward. John Mnrtin, mason, ol ltith ward. AU iander 1*. Fonda, steumhaat atront, of b'.h ward. Jobu L. Li wtenoe, lawyer, ot 16th ward. The delegation took a last ballot at about twelve o'clock, but no additional choice being made, they adjourned to Wednesday evening to select the remaining four candidates. The democrats meet the feme evening at Tammany Ilall, to select eight additional names for their Assembly ticket. The Native American party have concluded their nominations, and the Abolitionists are preparing a ticket tor the support of their friends. Thus it will be t?een that every body is to be suited with a ballot, from which to choose candidates for public favor; and the result of the contes' will therefore be fore doubtful than for years past. The Native Am rican party are waxing strong, having as their ultimate object the defeat of a Democratic Common Council hi (he ensuing spring election, in order to obtain taiis'actioa for what they conceive to be a deprivation ot their share of public plunder that was divided among the Irish and German naturalised citizens after the Democrates came into power last tyring. The most active, efficient,and honest among them are seceders from the ranks of the Democratic party, and therefore their force will be essentially lelt, although at the same tune iheir hostility to the corporation in power will tend vtrongly to force nearly the whole body of adopted citizens into its Fttpport Thus their influence may be overbalanced, and not an object that they have in view effected. Some of the shrewd, cunning whigs, have joined these Native Americans, but with no intention to hold on at the i tolls, as iheir friends of the other creed will find when the ballots are counted. The Gerinaa population alone have raised a voice ajaiust the movements of this party, and strange as it may appear, the Irish adopted citizens, who are generally the first in the field, lie as dormant as terrapins in December. * The Democratic convention, to nominate a Coroner, meet again this evening at Tammany Hall lor that purpose. The whigs, in accordance with public opintou, nominated a physician on almost the first ballot The democrats have balloted night att< r night without such success. We shall see whai their meeting brings forth this evening. General 1!krtk.ani>?This distinguished and cherished friend *1 Napoleon has not been able to m parate himtelf from ex-President Van Burcn so srtoa us he antici|iated, aud henc? his visit to New York will be delayed until Thursday next. In the meantime, Mr. Van Buren will escort him to Bosion, and po*ibly they may be joined by Dick Johnh"ti, and thus torm an unparalleled trinity. In the e'i'.r: is, e'-cu stance# and history of the two it. ;i jy i hi' luins, there ifl much similarity?comparitive ob;cunty ot birth and parentage, heroic daring ci youth, aud progression in rank by jtereonal worth and determined energy, and that nobleness o! soul which ever marks true genius, enlarged minds, and exalted courage. The character and history ol Richard M. Johnson are well known, and wherever las name has reached his extreme goodness of h?*art is known too The fidelity of General Bertrand to Napoleon, when in adversity, while it hallow* his name, must be to him in the retrospect, a source of pleasing satisfaction. Fontainbleau, Eil>a and St Helena bear witness to his devotion, when the creatures raised inio existence by Napoleon abandoned him to his reversed fortunes; and Austerlitz, Spandau, Friedlaud, Aspern, Luizen, Bantzeu and Li ip&ic are identified with his military career aud glory. Let the old hero and the devoted trienu reenve all proper and respectful attentions, and it he and Col. Johnton should arrive together, give them the same reception which is designed to mark the appearance ot the hero of the Thames. Whether Mr. Van Buren will accompany them to t:ue cny was yet undetermined. By reference to the proceedings of the Common Council, it will be perceived that a committee of three from each Board has been appointed 10 tender the respects of the city government to the General on bis arrival, and to place at his service the Governor's room, during ht6 stay, to receive the citizens, who will doubtless llock in thousands to welcome him to our empwe city. Municipal. Economy ? Our city fathers arc eratic spirits bom* time since, in a fit ol virtuous patriotism, and sublimated regard lor tbe pockets of their constituents, they economised the wanes of the poor fellows who ar^ appointed to sleep in door way* o'uigliU, or doomed to walk like melancholy gho?t*farmed cap-a-pie with truncheon, and cudgelproof cap, in certain portions of the streets ot our city. The election, however,approaches, and these mm have votes; the city fathers, by the reduction, gained credit tor being caretul old codgers, and now, as will be seen by their reported doings last night, they sain the atiections ol the watchmen bj increacing their wages and restoring the back paj which wus stopped from the month of May last ? Tbu is a movement and u device which gives prool irrefragable that tiie Common Council potnetsn s me politic genius who is fitted (or a more august and extended sphere. Courts and kingdoms, and n>>t Common Council chambers and a city, ahould be tns sphere ot operation. The amount which is thus voted aw.iy in shillings it is said will amount to tue sum ol $15,(WO, and hence it will be seen they b.J high lor the "inost sweet voices" of the city C'kuiici.

Upon enquiry, it waa found that Ehoneier M.

Oct. 23.?Samuel Colt vs. George Myer and Henry Myer.? This was an action of trover. The plalutitt is the inventor of the life preserving pistols, submarine battery, &c. &c , and the defendants are merchants of this city, who, among other things, import tin feil;from France aiid Germany It so happened that the attention of the mm of invention, was directed to the protracted war which his countrymen were waging against the Indians in Florida, and which, though so often finished, again broke out for want of Uncle Sam keeping " his powder dry." To remedy this, and place the success ot the campaign beyond all doubt, the plaintiff entered into a contract with the government to supply them with 150,000 musket and 100,000 rifle cartridges, made of a peculiar quality of tin foil, and u hich foil he contracted for with the defendants to import from Germany. However, the de. iendants did not comply in time with the terms of said contract, and though the plaintiff sought elsewhere, still he could aot obtain the required article to complete his contract with the government, and satisfy the world that Uncle Sam's blue coats,with Colt's waterproof tin toil cartridges,were more than a match for"them lnjins." The government refused to stand to thecontract,inasmuch as the war was over, and the swamps of Florida were supposed to be cleared of the varmint. To support his case, the plaintiff proved that the government had issued such an order, and itad directed the commander of the New York depot to supply him with powder, drummer boys, and a laboratory to prepare his cartridges. Also, that the sum of $6400 was placed in tbe hands ot tho Ordnance Department to pay the contractor,according as he delivered his contract. A nonsuit was granted on the grounds claimed, viz. that the damages sought for were remote and contingent-, that it was not shown that the plaintiff ha I Jo mnr.drdof th?|defendants the fulfilment of thecontract, within a reasonable time,or had proffered the price of the order.

Circuit Court. Be'ore Judge Kent. Oct. 93.?Daniel Dolfut and others, vt. Anthony LFroich.?This was an action of assumpsit to recover the amount ofthree drafts or bills of exchange, amounting in all to 18,000 francs, drawn by A. Brue, agent for the defendant, on the house of Johnston V Co., of Paris the plaintiffs, also of Paris, in this suit, being endorsers. Frosch, who was lately doing business in this city, as an imparter of French goods, but who has absconded, having been prosecuted by the United States for ptrjury.in paning false invoices through the custom house, left Brue s* his Attorney in this city to transact his, business inpowering him by warrant to sign his(Frotch's) name for h11 purposes necessary to carrv out the objects of the agcncy arid the interests of tbe defendant. In the course t the agency, the drafts in dispute were drawn, but tha accounts of Frosch, with the house of Johnston Ik Co, being in dispute, they were dishonored, and the suit is brought to recover against the drawer. The defence setup was, that the endorsers having transferred their claims to others,could not bring an action againstthe trawer without producing testimony of retransfer; that simple possession waa not sufficient to entitle them to recover; also that Brue, by the power of Attorney, had no authority to use the name of the defendant out of the city of New York, in manner alleged in this suit; also, that tho drafts became due on tbe 13th of July, 1841, that being the last day of grace,and not on the 10th, when they were presented and dishonored; consequently, there being no proof ol presentment on the 13th, a verdict could not stand for the plaintiffs?and lastly, if presented, there should be shown in evidence that notice ol protest was erveu uii iuo ueieiiuaui. 1 ne oo'iri cnargen agHimi lue exception* of the defendant, aa the ran?
