Tlif Mlrctioii ( Hiididatcs For the in format ion of our numerous readers in the Atlantic States, and perhaps of many on the Pacific shore, we publish the following list of candidates who \yere in the field at the general election held on the Kith instant. All. or nearly all, the candidates are intlr/trmlcnl inniiintitions. In Home instance* they have been endorsed or recommended by public meeting* in different parts of the state : but in only one district (San ' Francisco) has an attempt been made to organize a party, or fight the battle upon the old issue of Democrat and Whig. We have no doubt that, had time permitted, there would have been a state convention held, at which a rfnii/ur<hnn>cratir tirlrt" would have been nominated: and. had such been the fact, we are well satisfied that its complete triumph would have been tin 4 result. I'nder the conflicting circumstances caused bv the great number of candidates, and the want of any organization, it is therefo...

As evidence of fitness he would refer to the following testimonial: Mint of the United States,} July 19, 1843 } On the establishment of the United States Branch Mint at Dahlonegn, Dr. Joseph W. Farnum was appointed Assayer, with the duties also of melter and refiner. It is an act of justice which I have great pleasure in performing, to state, during his long tenure of office, he executed its duties with a degree of assidulty, skill, and exact accuracy, worthy of all commendation, and such as secured the entire confidence of all persons connected with the mint, or doing business with it. He recently to my very great regret, determined on presenting his resignation, and has thus deprived the mint of his valuable services. A proof of confidence in him has been shown by the appointment, as his successor. of a gentleman who had been his assistant, and who owes to him his whole knowledge of the...
