Although hia record la not a clean on#, we will give hint the credit o( not dodging any ques tion before the legislature, but always being at bla |>oat. Tbe Breckinridge organisation have divided the bonora of the nomination In tbla district between Daniel N. I-eamy and John Cavauagh. Mr. Loamy la about thirty four years of age, native of Ireland, a person of full medium height, dark hair and whiskers, and bears a very fair reputation amongst tbooe with whom he la inti mate. lie waa at one time engaged In the shoe busi ness, and latterly a llqusr dealer; but we believe he lias no vocation at present but electioneering; never held any oiBce, and has no marka about him that would lndicato the possession of quail float lona for a legislator.

Tbla dlatrlct ettenda from Broadway to the Had ana river, and oontalna all that portion of the city lying be tween the centrca or Chambers And Spring atreeta. It waa represented In tbe last Legislature by Christian B. Woodruff, who has been renominated by the Mozart Hall party and endorsed by tbe Bell organization. Mr. Wood ruff is a native of the olty of No* York, and about thir ty two years of ago. He la above the medium height, large fkee agd llgbt oomplexlon. He has been an active politician In hia dlatrlct, and at one time waa qalte popu lir; was member or the Assembly la 1SM>, and served on tlis Standing Committee of Privileges and Elections; he was re elected one year ago with Increased majority, aad served on the Militia Committee and the Committee on tbo Division of Towal and Counties. Be waa oae of those who left a record lo flavor of the lobby, having voted against the proposition to sell tbe railroad fraiiobtae to the highest bidder, and to roduco the fire from Ore to four cents, a>*o to pass the several gridirons, iha vVeil Washington Market bill, over the Ooveruor's ret", and the Commissioners or Records swindle. Hi* vote li recorded sgalnst both of the Sunday laws. Wo are unable to say whether his oonatttueacy or tho lobby are trying to re eleel him. It appeara from the potters to be found stuck up Id dlf fcrect portions of the district, that Michael W. Uu us, the Breckinridge candidate, la raising the gridiron cry upon Woodruff with great real. Every prominent place lo tbe distrlot la placarded with an enormous gridiron stand ing on legs, and with long arms extended as If for br>ty Tbete are tbe political standarda of Mr. Burnt. Each poster baa tho announcement that Michael W Burna M the antl railroad candidate, and appeals to all the boneat voters to vote against C. B. Woodruff. Mr. Burns, besides the naaic or Gridiron Smasher th-.t he has given himrelf, runs with tbe, and Is oon nccted with Hose Company No. 21; Is about twenty Ave, thin fare, dark complexion, and. we believe, a member of that tiuov roua claaa of this city who have no paj-tlcu lar business. Be was formerly engaged In driving cattle and aboop between Ibe Krle Railroad depot and Bull's Head, but has retired from that business, and new t|?nds his lime about the drinking saloons Beitf in tbe market, he will probably publish a card before election announcing bla withdrawal for Ike beaeflt of the parly.
