Pursuant to public nwi, a meeting was held, last night, at Vauzbaii, this city, for the purpose of receiving the report of the whig delegates to the j convention at Utica, and of ratifying the proceedings and nominations i,i the Maid convention.! At an early hour the c o?da began to assemble, and when the doors we e opened, at about half-past aevep, the numbers we e an g eat that the saloon at Vauxhall was found quite incapable to hold them. The gardens at Vauxhslt, and the spaces around the building, were fi ed with people as well as the saloon. In consequence of this, two distinct meetings Were held at the s, me time within hearing ofeach : other, and such was the enthusiasm of the people for the name and cause of General Taylor, that the shouts ol the one meeting, commingling with those ot the other, produced some contusion and annoyance to the speakers ot both. In the saloon, the chi? t ?ud grand scene of the meeting, the assemblage was called to order by .Philip llone, Esq., who, ulier a tew bnet and animated remarks, concluded by nominating Judge William Kim' hp President. The usual number ot ye. t ernen were appointed Vice Presidents and bertei.tries Mr. Pisxscv then reed to the meeting the following report That on the meeting ot the convention, every oounty In the State was round to he represented, and all the delegates were prereut?a satisfactory evidence of the deep interest felt by the * It ?i- et the State, In the subject of the deliberation- of ' hit body In the opinion of your delegates, rarelv. it ever, has a convention assembled, animated by a more bappy spirit of harmony, or inspired by a mere resolute determination to spare no effort for the succe-s of the great principles of our oause. Personal feelings and ertsreuoes were readily aorified for the common good nnd general welfare; the choloe of the majority in to* selection of candidates waa cheerfully acquiesced in. with unanimity and a degree of hearty good feeling alike honorable to the character of tbe Candida'e- chosen and to the patriotism of the convention Tbe candidate for the office of Governor was taken from the eity of New York; his nomination waapropoeed toy a member from western N. 'York and supported by the suffrages of delegates from all portions of the Slate, in a manner which afforded gratifying proof of the high estimation in whioh that individual was held, by whig* from every seotlon, and representing many various Interests. For the first time since the days ol D* Witt Clinton, this great metropolis present* to the State the name of on* of her eftisens for the offloe of Governor. By birth a descendant of one of the forefather race, who by their energy and industry laid the foundations of this great ?omm<relal empire?of pare utag* honored by association with our revolutionary struggle, be possesses in ma own rnaracier d?it ui in use irun gi luruni implioity and integrity. honesty of purpose, and steadiness in well doing, which oharaoterleed the men f early times in our hi*>ory. He has been known among us from boyhood, alike in good and bad fortune, as a deveted and Jaithfai *hg; in his position as presiding officer of the Hecate, he won golden opinions 'ftom his associates, constantly rising in public aateem and growing in the higher qualities of statesmanship. Mntil by the united voice of the whigs of the State,he is offered as a candidate for the first honor in the gift of ber citizens, t Is therefore, with feelings 'Of gratulation and pride, we report to you the selection by the State Convention aster candidate for Governor, of our fellow-eitlien. Hamilton Fish, with the firm conviction that the city of Nee York will pledge and give him a vete, that will justify the confidence of the whig* of the State in the choice they have made. For the office of Lieutenant-Governor, the wblgs of the West presented the name of George W. Patterson, of Chautnuqne; and his nomination on tha first ballot by the convention, is an indication of the strong hold be possesses upon the esteem end aflection of the past. His legislative course has given proof of his ability as a man, and his consistency esa whit, and we feel assured s*Ka* tVw, Wnaf. will mii.iiistto* f.h#e Eftilt. ift th? Idfil and nthnriasro with which a ticket, composed of names ao popular aod acceptable, win be supported. For tbo offices of caual Commissioner. and States Prison I nspector. Chafes Cook, of Chemung, and Alexander II. Wells of We?tcbe?ter, were respectively nominated, with the e- eviction that their selection will secure the services of able and faithful public serTantsin those important and responsible stations. The State electoral ttok t nominated by the convention, at the head of which were placed, as electors at large. Henry H. Ross, ot Kssrx. and John A. Collier, of Albany, is one in which the whlga may repose unlimited confidence, as ccuipoed of sterling men of unflinching principles, esteh ished chsractrr and reputation, who will vote for 7. chary Taylor and Millard Fillmore, as the regular ? hi* candidates chosen by a national convention, and supported by the free voioe ?f the whigs of this State er expressed in their State convention. With such names to inspire and lead ns on in the great political conflict now at hand, with the unbroken strength and uudiunni?ned vigor ef the great whig party now ooi.oei-tiating in all its pristine power, suit marshalling for the hattle, it is our pleasure tu report that the convention to which we were delegates, were animated wiib just confidence of the Slate.'

Loud cries for Ogd -n Hoffman were then raised by the crowd, during which O-neral Leslie Coombs of .Kentucky, artlred in the rn"tn. and, coming forward, tru introduced hy the ohairman to the meeting General Cuomhs said, he regretted muoh that hie friend, Mr. Hoffman, was jmt present. He would have preferred to havi- hoard him preach the ermon, and then he himself would have followed and hare given the exhortation Mr. C, complained that he had boon overworked la this campaign, and hoped the meeting, therefore, would listen patiently inhun Deferring to tho Interruption mmle on the preceding evening to Mr. Botta. whose oouree. however Mr. V prof, ssed not altogether to approve..he (>ir C ) observed that in Kentucky an audience never hies a public speaker if he <loae not pi asn thcn>; they either withdraw or bear him patiently to the end Mr C protested that If there bed been an) hope of tho oleotion of Mr. Clay, ha (Mr C.) would make Inn. President against every maa living He wa< hi- firm, constant, steadfast friend, and when hereafter his (vir Clay's) history abould be written, he would appear like a colossus; while tboee who now seeui to b? groat men wonld be found creeping between his leg- and s-eking a dishonorable grave. He (My C ) was llko llaailet, l.ssrtes. and Ophelia, as represented by the great poat, leaping Into the grave?he was ready to leap Into the grave, if neoessary to save bis country ? Though Mr Clay was hi- friend aad hi* neighbor, for he (Mr L C 1 could tee the d*or of Mr Clay's house out of his bedroom W'ndow and though he thought him a man above ihe rest ot die world, sending I ke a to war, yet when be(Vr ?. , dl.d. and went to biles, the whig party would still live, sud survive ae long as E NE g M0RN1 oil earth roll. <i od ; and it wa >, ho thought. our duty to Ukf otra of turialiii now. and prorido for the fnturo (Grttl applause.) Mr. L. 0 here passed ? tblntM enlogium anon Mr. Clay. Ho had known bin in prosperity and In adeerslty ; in th# former Mr Clay was bumble bnt in the latter he was proud He was like tbo noble a tag of the forests of Kentucky, which the more hotly It was pursued by the huntsman, tossed up its branching antlers the more proudly : which could kick from its heeU the bane cure which barked at him and could torn high la tha air the bloodhound* which aimed at hU throat. 8uoh was Henry Clay. (Great applause ) Mr. C. then proceeded to | our tray the character and (ire the biography of Gen Cms, and stated several Instances in which ho alloyed Gen. Cass had turned ahoat with all parties, and kept his official situation under all administrations, by servility and subserviency The peeker then spoke, in ardent term*, of the devotion of bin native State of Kentucky to the cause and interest* of the Union, and remarked that In the late war with Mexico, whereas the State of Virginia, whloh had ceet its vote for Mr. Polk and the war, had disgraced itso'f by sending no volunteers to that war. Kentucky, on the other hand, had sent Ave regiments of volunteer* and was ready to send more Mr. C particularly called upon the reporters of the publio press who were present, to keep a note of that foot.? General Cass, observed Mr. C.. when be first went to Ohio, wss a fed?relist He (Mr C ) had the fact from Judge Burnet who. himself a federalist, yet wu far exceeded by Gen. I ass. Hers Mr C. related several pointed and strong olroumstaaoosof tergiversation and truckling which he (Mr C ) attributed to Gen Cass Among otMer things, he related that he (Mr. C ) had seen the copy of a letter written formerly by General Cass to Mr. Clay, in which the former attacked severely GeDeral Jackson, Mr. Buchanan, and other prominent democrats, and professed himself an ardent friend and admirer ot Mr. Clay A copy of this letter he (Mr. L. C ) bod given for publication to Mr. MoKlrath of the TVihune. The speaker here quoted the lines of Sbakgpeare. as descriptive of the oharaoter of General Case, who was, be observed, one who "Would bond the pliant binges of the knee, that thrift might follow fawning " (Immense applause.) Mr. C professed to speak in ail kindness of General Cass, and as a proof of bis kind intention towards htm, he would not speak halt so badly of him as he thought of hits. (Laughter.) As regards the military services of Gen. Cass, he would say a few words. In the West, the people knew that wbile those of the Last were eiposed to a oivllisod foe, in bis part of the c< untry they were exposed to the tomahawk and scalping knife When Hnll marched to the Northwest, we in Kentuoky feared from his proclamation that be would swallow up the whole of Canada before we got there. On that ocoaaion. Gen Cass, according to the life written of him, was the first to cross the river; but a very important part oi tho transaction ?as omitted, viz , that while he was the first to cross to Upper Canada, they omit in hie life to state that in the retreat he was the first to oroes back again, (roars of laughter) and that was the time when Cass didn't break his sword (Laughter ) But, any way, General Taylor never would break his sword on a stump; he would rather break it on the heads of his enemies. Mr Coombs then related an anecdote of Gen. Cass to the effect that he commissioned only eighteen men to undertake the oonquest of Canada and to those eighteen men he gave two sheets of instructions. He told them, that if after oonauerins Canada, they found men in offloe fit to gofers that country, to keep them in ; but if not, to appolntethers; and, sure enough, when this great foroe of eighteen men waked up one morning, they found the ..selves surrounded by the Britiah. and were compelled to surrender. He wan afterwarda, it ia true, in the battle of the Thames. may be recollected that during the canvass of 1840 the locofocoa attempted to prove that Colonel Johnson was the hero of the Thames, and that Gen. Harrison was not within two miles of the battle. Well now, in the West, one of Gen. Cass's great qualifications is, that be was the aid of General Harrison at the same battle, Thia ia a short history of the military rervicea of Gen. Cass; if any thing is omitted, it would be well for some of his mends to supply it. (Laughter) Of my friend, Mr. Bntler, their candidate for the vlce-presidenoy, I would speak of him respectfully. He knew him well, but it ia somewhat singular that he was not under (Ire of the enemy during tbe last war but once, and that waa in the streets of Monterey, when without orders he got in the wrong street, and old General Taylor had to go and bring him out of it. (Laughter.) This ia historical. He attempted to barrioade streets and bouses with walla of stone two feet thick, with rifles and bayonets. Watson fell there. The Baltimore battalion suffered, and old General Taylor had to save them. So much for his military character. Now, Messrs Stenographers, raid Mr. Coombs, there ia no use in your attempting to report me, far you can't do it. You must know how to make a stump speech, and have heard many of them, to know how to ao it. There was but one great stomp speaker before me, and he was Martin Luther ; and no?ne could report either him or me. Mr. Coombs then spoke in tbe highest terms of Mr, Clay, at ti?t length, and said he knew Messrs. Hall, Tomlinson, Blunt, and others, in New York, who are adbrriDg to him still. These men, he said, were laboring under a monomania for tbe present, but in tbe end tbey will all come out rieht. Greeley will como out riuht, too : and he would bet a thousand dollars to a quarter on it. He is a remarkable man ; one of the most remarkable men of the age both Id person and in mind. (Laughter.) But he would come into the ranks before the tiuie of eleotion. Mr Coombs then referred to Gen. Cass' mission to Spain; bia writing of a book, laudatory of Louis Philippe; his visit to the Holy Land; and what was the object of that visit * It was to get a bottle full of water from the river Jordon, with whioh to baptise a grandchild of Louis Philippe's; a thing whioh lien. Taylor would not do to baptise all ' he princesses and princes in the world After speaking a few minutes longer, (ten Coombs became exhausted, and was obliged to retire [Calls for Mr. Hoffman followed, and some one moved that smoking cigars should be prohibited.] Mr. Hoffman, after making an apology for not attending to tbe motion about cigar smoking, asked the audience it they were so disposed, to listento him while he made but a few remarks in relation to the feelings and convictions which he entertained of what is the duly of the whig party in the present canvass.? This. meeting, fellow citizens, is not called to ratify the nomination of General Taylor for the Presidency, 1 say this whig meeting is not called to ratify the nomination; tor the nomination of General Taylor has already been ratified by the assembled whigs of this city. '1 he nomination of General Taylor was ratified betore it was made It sprung from the people, and tbe National Convention but ratified the popular choice. But we have to ratify the nomination of the Governor and Lieutenant Governor of our State. (( beers.) They are now submitted to tbe assembled wbigs betore me; and can there be a doubting footing or a discordant voice, that Hamilton Kish is entitled to the support of every whig ' It is a long time fellow citizens, since the city of New Vork had the honor ct presenting a candidate for the suffrage of the Kcipire State. ?nd jet our city looks baok with pride, una pcini priae. on ins names 01 jay ana i-nncon. And now. again. by acclamation, tbe oily of Near York protect* us with a candidate, one of us, whom we are delighted to honor, whoso career we have marked, and who ie ent itled to our warmest support. Who is Hamilton Fish? One tliat has lived among you ?one who was a whig in the worst of times - mild amiable, intelligent and virtuous. Klected to Congress, be won the approbation of foes ns well as friends.

I do not wrong yoa, fellow cititens. when I suppose that whatever dlseatiefaotion may beve existed-whatever eonfueion may have arheu in our ranks-that all will rally to the support of that nomination. Bat is that to be all ? Aie the whigs of this State to be satisfied because the flag that floats over the Kmptre line, the New York army, is to wave In triumph, and yet the flag that floats over our brethren of tbe Kast. and the South, and the West is to droop In defeat i Are we to be dissatisfied because our State banner wavea aloft in triumph, and yet tbe national banner, under whioh whig* have ever rallied, is to droop in ignominy and defeat' if we et cure Hamilton Kish we shall have a fountain pure in our own State ; but if we allow the great fountain to remain corrupt and Impure, tbe watera of corrupt patronage will flow into that of the State, and corrupt mem too. ivo. lot n mi wnoie ana a perreei triumph.

But if purity ot life, steady and Irreproachable discharge of duty, and honesty ot purpose, be worthy of esteem, then all the learning in the world?(tremendous cheers, whioh diowned the remainder of the sentence). 1 would rather have these qualities than all the learn- 0 Ing which books could confer.

The Police Court yesterday fc. morning presented rather a lively appearanoe by a u goodly muster of prisoners brought in by the polioemen y from the different wards. Some wore black and some . were white and some were blue, that is to say, blue d from the previous night's spree. These prisoners D were seated along on a beach, or as many as could 0, be seated, tbe balance being huddled together in standing room Amongst this group or thieves, rt vagabonds, (drunkards and prostitutes, was seen a ? decent looking middle aged man, bearing an inter- .] eating growth of sandy hair around his dlscriptive i, organ. This individual was ornamentedfwlth a neat j black eye, and. his clothing, which was of the moat | t( fashionable style, only a little the worse for the lima. I .. were spots occasioned bj a night's lodging in the station i, bouse cell He was seated between a strapping big ^ black woman and a white thief, one of the notorious of tbe Fire Points, and there he sat awaiting his name d to be called in rotation. At last his name was called, g( IVirro Bodeekl, that being the name he gave The of- . fleer who brought him in said that he was much in- ' toxicated in Broadway, upsetting ash boxes and dis- tl turbing sign boards. Tbe magistrate asked him what 0 he had to say in defenoe of the charge preferred against 0 him. when he shook his head in the negatire like a D philooopber acknowledging the oorn, and the masts- ? irate, wishing to set a good example before tbe loafers s present, fined him fire dollars, which he paid, apparcntly with much pleasure, evidently glad to get off so M lightly.

The principal uestion was whether the trustees were bmnd 0 account for the three several sums paid to the ounsel of Mr. Hoyt, with the assent of his trustees, for onducting his defence in the suit of the oompiaiuaats gainst him, and to the clerk employed in tde examilation of hie accounts with the government preparaory to his defence, amounting in the aggregate to 3.t>60. It was admitted tbat this sum was realised rem the property assigned In trust. The Court held bat the complainants were entitled to charge the asgnees as their trustees, and to oompel, in equity, the pplication ef the property assigned to the satisfaction I'their judgment, as the property proceeded from the idgment debtor, and was designed to be a counter seunty to the defendants against the demand now in idgment; that the defendants did not receive or hold in their own right, but as the means of satisfy i ng the ebt in question, whenever it became fixed upon them; lat a trust, by implication of law. was created In beu If of oomplainants upon these facts, when a court of juity will execute either by devoting the estate direct' to a seizure on execution, or compelling the trustees > dispose of the same under the supervision of the jurt, with a view to the appropriation of the proceeds 1 the judgment. 'I he Court further held ttiat the mveyanoe in this lease by Hoyt to the trustees, was a Dluntsry assignment with which the oomplainants ere neither parties or privies, and intended as an inenmity to the sureties on his official bond, and was (severable by the assignor, with their consent, at least ntil notice had been communicated to the complainuts, and they had affirmed the same; that where a rrson without the privity of his creditors, and withiit consideration, mat es a disposition of his property, i between himself and trustees, for the Davmnnt of his KbtK, be is regarded as merely directing the mode in bleb bis own property shall be applied for his own eneflt; and the general creditors, or the creditors arned in the schedule, are persons named for the pursue of showing how the trust property shall be aplled; that the right of the complainants, in this case, > seise upon the trust estate and appropriate it to the rtisfaction of their judgment, under the trust, by imlication of law in their favor, did not attach until the ling of the bill. This being the first steo taken by lem in affirmance of the trust for aught that appears i the pleadings and proofs before us. and. therefore, ny disposition of the proceeds, with the assent of the ssignor, and the sureties, previous to this time, was slid,and need not be accounted for by the trustees i th settlement of their aconnnts. The Samtvt Jetie Hoyt and five othen.?This was n action in debt on the official bond given by Jesse loy t and his sureties, as Collector of the jport of New ork, dated 30th November, 1838, in the penalty of 200 000. conditioned for the faithful discharge of his uties as collector. The breaches assigned were, for eglecting and refusing to pay over certain baianoes f public moneys in his bands, received as such col ctor. I he defendant (J. Hoyt) pleaded n?n tit ictum, the Other defendants nil delict. Th? cause m continued down to the termlof the court held in he oity of New York, on the third Monday of October, 347, when the said Jesse Hoyt put in a plea piui an ten, <f c , setting forth that the plaintiff* bad herejfore Impleaded him and one Tbelps, since deceased, i an aotion of debt on a bond made by them, on the Ith December, 1888, in the penalty of (200,000 ; and fter reotting the appointment of said Hoyt as Collector f the port of New York, conditioned for the faithful lar barge of his duties aa such collector, by which laid ction the plaintiffs demanded and sought to recover gainst the defendants, the same identical sum of inney as Is demanded and sought to be recovered in his suit; and which are the same identical breaches f the bond, aa the breaches assigned upon the bond, yer of which is given in this suit; and that such roceedings were had. that afterwards, ke. by the onsideration of the court, judgment was recovered, o. The plaintiffs demurred, and the defendants lined in demurrer The court held?first, that the pcond bond given by Hoy t and Phelps, 14th Deoem *r, 1838, did not of itMlf operate an a merger or exIngulshment of the flret one, though given for the tm? debt or duty, It being a security of no higher igieetban the first; and that for a like reaaon, a udgroent upon it would not hare that effeot un s* followed by satisfaction: It only extinguished he bond upon whioh this suit wan brought, eennd?

It appeared that the improvement had been put on sale e early ae the year lSjJP. nu I had been continued on sale, and had been publicly sold bom that time to-the granting of the patent. This state of faota, it was olatoed by the defendant wade out a dedication of rhe improvement to tbe publi.v, and rendered tbe patent void. On the part of tbe plaintiff it was insisted that the patent was valid, notwithstanding tbe above foots, under the construction of the 7th section of the not of 188U, (ft; U 8 H., 364 ) That section is'as follows:? "lnat every ptisso, or corporation', who baser shall have purchoree r constrevted suy new ly Invented mweMue, manufacture or com reunion ol amttem, prior to the application hy the inventor or u tcovrier tor a patent, shall b? hsid to p.. see* tli? right to u?e, and vend to <vthen to be used, the specide machine, maiu factuio or comiioeiiu-n of inatieraso made or purchased without any Hal-ili y tiu-refur to the iuveutor. <r any <>h<er ix-rnon Interested ineiich inroniiss : and no patent shall be held invalid by | reason of such purpose, sale or i-ee, prior to tie application lor a patent aforesaid, except on proof of abandonment of such invention to tits public, or that, auoh pun-have, sale, or been for mure than two )cara prior tu snch application for a latent.'' It was claimed that the purchase or construction re? ferred to in the fore part of this section, means a purchase or construotion from the inventor himself, or from n title derived from or under the inventor; aud therefore the section, Impliedly at least, authorises him to put bis invention en sale, and to sell publicly, prior to tbe time ot making, application for his patent; and that as tbe purchases in the latter part refer to the case of purchases provided for and authorized in tbe fore part of the section, tales may be made at anytime within the two veers prescribed, prior to the making of juch application?and that the risk of the inventor in putting his invention on sale and puhliekly sering within the two years before he makes application is the risk only of evidence being produced showing an intention of abandoning his discovery to the pubiio?that no each inference is predictable upon the faet of putting the invention on sale On the part of the defendant it1 was claimed that this construction makes the hrepart of the section a work of supererogation as no statute provision would be necessary to protect the right of a purchaser from the inventor himself in the use of the machine purchased or constructed under him. The purchase itself would be aoomplete protection, notwithstanding a patent was subsequently granted?It was further oiauned as the true construction of the section that it raters to a purohase or eonstrnction of maohines under a title derived trom persons other than the inventor, or n construction by a person of his own ingenuity; and that while the section provides for thesecurity of rights thus derived, and expenses and laboue thus incurred and performed (and which might well have been incurred and performed in good faith) against the operate n and effect of a subsequent patent to the true and original invention, it at the same time guards against|the legal effect of any acquiescence or implied assent on the part of the inventor to such prior pubilo nss of his invention for a period of two years, unless evidence is produced of an intent to abandon it : that before this act as the law stov-d an inventor looking on and sequencing in the public use of his invention before application for his patent, though such use was wrongful, and for a less period than two yeats, would or m ght render his patent Invalid-: and that the object of the section was two-told?first to protect the purchaser or constructor of the machine prior to the application for i a patent in the use of the particular machine or maI ohines after it was granted-and second at the same { time to guard the rights of the inventor against the legsl effect and operation of anv aci|uiesoenoein such riublic use of his intention The Judges were opposed n opinion and as the point was of great praatioal importance, certified it to the Supreme Court ot the United Stales for decision. Dawts and Carry ads. J it*. Casiell ?This was a | motion for a new trial. The declaration contained I four counts, one against the defendants as acceptors of a bill of exchange ; second, the common money i counts ; third nod fourth, upon promises to accept. j ; Tbe defendants were commission merchants in the oity of New York, and had given a general letter of I credit to an agent to procure consignments of western 1 produce to their bonse. and made advances on the I same within certain limits ; and as a mo<l? of making advances, the house promised in said letters to honor ! any drafts drawn against suoh shipments by the owoor j and shipper, on the property being put in good condition for shipment. The draft in question was drawn 1 1 in pursuance ot the authority above given, and nego- I 1 tiated to the plaintiff, who took it for value, on the i > iaitii of said letter of credit and commercial standing I of the defendants' house; the drawers refu ed to ac- I i cept. The Court held that the plaintiff cou d not re- | j cover against the defendants as acceptor rt the bill; but could, under the count, cn a promise .o accept; j | and lhat there was sufficient privity be ween the I I bolder who had taken the paper and advanced his money on the faith of the letters of credit to sustain the action in his own name. 1 he Court further held that the facts of endorsements appear!'g on the bill, subsequent to the endorsement by tbe Dayer to the plaintiff, whether for the purpose of transmission and collection, or for value, did not prevent a recovery in tbe plaintiff's name; inasmuch as it appeared also that he was tbe holder and owner of the paper at the time tbe suit was brought. A re-indorsement was not essential to vest tbe legal interest in him. Ths Court further held that the protest of the bill, in due formfor non payment, made by the agent who presented it for that purpose, rebutted any inference of assent to a partial acceptance that purported to have been made on that day by the defendants, and which was (ought to be derived solely from the fact of a partial acceptance appearing on the paper under that date. Mo- j tion tor dhw trial denb d. Charles Jlndtrson. Executor of Phelys' i}-c ads. the I'nited Slates.- This was au action of a dobt on a bond, made by the testator and Jesse iloyt, jointly and severally, in the penal sum of $200,000. and after reciting that, the said Jesse Hoyt had been appointed collector of the port of New York, and had gleen a bond on the 22d of March. 1838, with sureties, for the faithful discbarge of his duties; and also another bond onthelSOih of November, 1838. for the like faithful discharge of his duties; and further reciting, that it was deemed expedient on the part ol the government, that the said Air Hoyt should give additional security for the faithful performance of his trust. Said bond was conditional, that if the said Jesse truly and faithfully executed and discharged, and should cont nue truly and faithfully to execute and discharge all the duties of the raid office, then the said obligation to be void; otheraise, to remain In full force and virtue Several breaches were assigned, the defendants demurred and plaintiff joined in demu rer. The question upon the demurrer is, whether or not Thelps the t? staior, by entering into the bond, with,the accompanying recitals became absolutely bound for any default of Hoyt in the discharge of his duties as collector, or only contingently, in tbe event of the failure or inabillty otjbe surerties In the previous bond to satisfy and discharge the same The Court h?ld that the said testator became absolutely bound; that the recital that it was deemed expedient to exact additional security, did not necessarily, nor, by any fair inference, import conditional or contingent security; that the condition was in the same terms as are prescribed by the act of Congress, and found in all the official bonds of the collector; that the recital was intended to show that : I'helps was not the sole security of Hoyt, but that he had become such in addition to the sureties already Kiven on the '20th of March and 30th of November previous, that additional security might be abaolute a? well aa conditional, depending upon the tar mi of the obligation, and that in thia instance it waa aiabaolute aa words could make it.
