This edition will be printed on superfine paper, and sold at I ceats per copy by wholesale, and (>4 cents by retail. Tkf Great Box Ball To-Nlght. It is nci dless to add at this time, that the Eoz Bull to night, at the Paik, will be the mo6t biilliant elluir that has been given in any patt ofthitcoun try for the last ten years. Tne sale of tickets of course has been closed,and exactly 100b have been sold?no more?no less-? Therefore future pirchaaeis will do well to look af er counterfeits. These lOOti tickets will admit precisely 2212 persons on the lloor of the houseno more- no lers. The doors of the Park are to be opened at half past 7 o'clock, bnd Biz is to arrive in the house precisely at a quarter past 9. This is ofllcial. Outside the theatre, the accommodations for the ladies will be admirable; an awning reaches from the theatre covering the steps and whole side walk ts the curb stone; they step out of a carriage on to a platform covered with green baize, and so through the lobbies, aud in through the main box entrance, as at the tinmen's ball, the whole of which is covered with green baize down to the dancing lloor ?>o much tor th" outside. Iu the inside the accommodations will also be superb. On the lower tier of boxes, every seat has been covered with white muslin, with gold fringe and baize placed for the feet of those in the front circle. The saloons and green room have also been fitted with great taste and expense, and with an eye to the comfort and convenience of all. The arrangements for hats, cloaks, &:c , and the ladies' retiring apartments, are admirably contrived. So much fo' comfort. The decorations art- very magnificent; and on this alone Mr. Simpson basexpendi d $2500. The dome over the pit is covered with bunting, festooned, and a golden ro?tte in the centre. The gallery part of the house is hid by bunting and statues representing Apollo, the nine muses, Cupid und Py che, and other ornaments. In front of this tier arc placed portraits of all the Presidents, iSjguL1?!'** Umbrf;iVweMntff' K evolution, teiog in the centre, in tront ot the third ore plated shields, with the arms of each Slate painted on them, and other ornaments. The v hole of the sixteen boxes of the second tier are lilted up whh red striped drapery to represent tents, each curtain having a blue ground in the corner, with 26 stars thereon. In front of the second tier are placed medallions, ornamented with wreaths, on w hich are punted, " Pi 'kwick Tapcri, ' Oliver TwUt, ' Nicholas Nickleby, ' Curiosity Shop. " Uarnaby Kinlge, ' Comj lcte Work* of Boz, Sic." These ure interspersed with eight large stars also surrounded with wreaths,and in the centre is a portrait of Btz, surrounded by a wreath, Burtnounted by a golden eagle holding a laurel crown in his beakThere are also interspersed around the front of the second tier II figures after the antique. Over the ornaments on the third tier are 24 small Hags?half representing the stars and stripes, and half the Union Jack. On ihe prosceniam the pillars are covered with striped bunting, and above.thein are silk banners with appropriate devices : portraits of Boz are on tw o of them. The front of the orchestra is divided into five golden compartments, with wreaths in the centre, the whole festooned with wreaths, as are indeed the fronts ot every tier of boxes. A large golden May pole is in the centre front of the orchestra with an eagle on the top and w reaths pendaut therefrom to two other golden pillars at each extremity cf the orchestra. There are twenty-four scats in the orchestra all covered with white muslin, and on the top of the front of it are placed guitars and tamborinea. All the fifteen pillars supporting the second tier of boxes arc covered with gold tissue worked muslin, and gold slabs are placed in froi t of each box compartment. These, with innunterablc w reaths, festoons of flowers, and fl.tgs, form the decoraticcs in front of the proscenium. The stage decorations and crrangements will be the most chaste and beautiful that can be imagined. Ti.e stage hu been widened till it extends to sixty feet in widih, ami thrown back almost to the wall of Theatre Alley. And the w hole stage represents a splendid did.nber of carved and gilded oak, with nia^nitiren'. ceiling to match, of the Klizabethean age, very much like one of those gorgeous rooms in the 1'uke o; C?aufe:t's mansion, overlooking the Wye. near Monmouth. < >nrach panel of this room I i? placed a mtda'tton tabitaur, highly finished, representing a scene lrom Box's w srks These are twenty in number, and consist of the following subjects 1. Emotion of the Ken wigs. a. Bumble and Mrs. Corney taking tea. 3. Sam Wellcr w riting his Valentine. 4 Quilp and the Dog. n Oliver asking lor more. ?i Nell'* Death Bed. 7.

Sim Tappertit's Reverie. to The Old .Man at Nail's (iravo. IT. Nell raading in the Old Church. I*. Oliver beats Nosh ' lay pale. It' Nell in the Old Church \ srd. SO Old Curiosity Shop. These graphic tableaux will ornament this p.rt of the house. On each of the stage chartb rs there ui a '.arge bow window, forming a deep r wit.i betxiful aud appropriate drapery; and be:? every medallion, tableaux with lan,e brackei candele.brd, betides 110 gaslights, withgla. * shades over them, on the stage. At the back of the s ?gi*, and in the centre of the chamber, kis a drop curiam covering a platform and opon space. Thi?curtain is painted like ?he frontispiece to il e Pickwick Papers, and exhibits all the charade g in tiiat work. This draws up, and represents the - ^ , lab fanv vivante, which will be represented by the a .-tors in the following order;? 1. Mr? Leu Hunter's drtss, dej ire.

The supper room is to be thrown open at 10 and is to be closed at 2 o'clock. The supper is to be furnished by Downing at a cost of $2300. Tiie house is to be lighted by Stouter.burgh Cox, in their best style. They will furnish no less than 350 lights, forming with the gas lights a complete blaze of nearly 50o lights in the ball room. There are to be 6 golden chandeliers on the stage and 2 over the pit, all suspended by gold ropes. At the entrance to the boxes are two golden cande labras, each for twelve lights, resting en golden pillars There is a splendid astral lamp at the back of each box in the first tier; six hanging astral lamps on the procenium pillars, and 10 bracket , golden candelabras projecting from the sides of the oak chamber. And this, we believe, comprises a complete outline of the decorations and arrangements of the house as it is now. What it will be oa thiseventful night, our readers muat loirk into the Herald of to morrow for a lull description thereof. We know that among the elite who will be present on this joyous occasion, there will be the Brevoorts, Motts, Livingstons, Cheesmans, Hones, Astors, Washington livings, llulleck, Dr. Francis,Lord Morpeth, Karl Mulgrave, officers of the army and navy, Corn Perry, General Officers of the U. S. Artillery, Mayor and family, Judge Kent, Judges of the Courts, Chancellor, Arc. Such is the house, its appearance?decorationsprogramme of the performances, skeleton of the company,etc. <Scc. To-mor/ow, in our regular daily paper, we shall give the details of the ball up to 12 o'clock, with about twenty splendul engravings from drawings made by the best artists in the eity for this especial occasion; and on which no less than nine of the first engravers of this city or any other city have been at work for the last two weeks, representing all the tableaux ?the coup d'ail of the interior of the house; a head of Boz made from a drawing since his arrival at Boston, &c. And at nine o'clock, we shall issue a xecoiul edition on very fine paper, containing all these engravings, and the full details of the ball up to its close. Therefore look out for the Herald of to-morrow mom inc. Dlcltcnn'a First Day and Kvcnlng In S'w York. For once in his life, at least, Boz has reason to be thankful for a wet day. For had it not rained yesterday from dayl'ght till dark, the Sabbath would have been no day of rest to him, and he would have had to exclaim in the words of the poet: " E'en Sunday shines no Sabbath day for me." his amiable lady occupied their snug little parlor, " up three pair o* stairs," in the Carlton, till near dark. Boz was very busily engaged in writing until three, when he and his lady dressed for dinner, ordered a hack, came quietly down stairs about five o'clock, and were drawn to Cadwallader Colden's, where they dined and spent the evening with a werry recherche party. On Saturday evening, after he had dressed and dined, Boz was literally besieged with the members of the Committee, whose name appears to be "legion." The majority of them called on him out of curiosity; but some few on business. He received them with a naivette peculiarly his own, which amused a few fashionables, but on all his suave manners* and ripe blunt good humor left a favorable impression. His manners are as charming, original, and humorous as his writings, and will delight all who see and know him as much as his works have done. Boz wishes to see no visitors till after the ball. On Tuesday he takes possession of the reception drawing room of the Carlton, and on that day commences his first levee. The Navy of the United States. There are in the Navy of the United States 1478 officers,exclusive of the Marine corps, viz : Captaius, 68 Masters, 30 Commanders, 97 Masters' Mates, 4 Lieutenants, 337 Professors of MathemaBurgeons, 69 tics, >3 Passed Asst.

Even tha grate and long visaged cons of Galen have caught the infection, aud the whole medical body burns with an excitement almost equal to the B?z fever. All over the country the medical schools seem inspired with new hie and energy, and in this metropolis in par- i ticular, the "/acuity"are agitated in an extraordinary degree. The old College in Crosby Street, and the new school at the Sluyvesant Institute are engaged in a regular " battle-royal," and the Lancet ol last Saturday presents the " fancy men" of both establishments at full length, and in jturif naturalibui. Da. Mott is the " great gun" of the new school. "The king's name is a tower of strength," said the wise man of old, and in the name ol Mott, the sa- ( piect "faculty," who attempted to control the pub- 1 lie press, and make a monopoly of science, repose all their confidence. Like other pets, to be sure, the < good doctor sometimes gets a little unruly, but the respectable dry-nurses cf the new school are tolerably knowing, and generally manage to administer , a sugar-plum that acts as an efficient quietus Dr. < Stevens, on the other hand, is the Achilles of the , "College." The present number of the I^ancel contains a ver ' baton report of a lecture by Dr. Stevens, delivered i at the college in Crosby Street, and never since the " days of Abernethy have the profession and the pub- , lie been presented with a more amusing, interesting, eccentric, and valuably scientilic dncourse. It is an admirable specimen of the Pickwickian style of ? literature. Wisdom and wit, surgery and pathos, science and humor, are marvellously blended in one unique and extraordinary whole. The reader is * amused and instructed, edified and affected in one ( breath. In fact, this lecture will not suffer in > comparison with some ot the most mushed proauc tions of Boz Dr. Mott attempts the same vein, but he fails. Dr Stevens beats him hollow. Both . are imitators of the illustrious Abernethy, who was * the great originator of the Samivel Weller style of scientific instruction ; the first to smooth the asperities of surgery with the magic touch of wit and humor. But the imitators don't follow pari passu You laugh at Dr. Morr?mth Dr. Steve**. Dr. Morr labors hard for ten minutes to excite your risibility, and unless you're very ill-natured you must reward the good old man with a smile. With a single phrase Dr. Stevess sets your sides aching for half an hour afterwards; you can't, for the life of you, smother your laughter. Yet the rival heroes of the scalpel are not badly matched. Dr. Mott, to be sure, is most egotistical ?Dr. Steve*s most eccentric; Dr. Morr most pompous?Dr. Steve** most playful: but both are equally scientific, equally dexterous, have been equally successful. Dr. Stevens has not, we believe, made the grand tour, and is not on intimate terms with the royal family of France; here, Dr. Morr has the decided advantage : but, after careful reflection, we think we are right in placing them on the same level. To iho iAmctt we refer the public for the full details of their scientific gladiatorship. And do we err in saying that a great revolution now shakes the body medical? Is it not a new and interesting spectacle to witness the great surgeons of the day descending from their stilts, and graciously walking in the midst of their fellow men, sneaking not in the unintelligible jargon of their art, but even in the vernacular, mingling poetry with physic, and the sallies of wit with the sayings of wisdom? Thus every man will soon be his own physician. Let any non-professional man read Dr. Steve.vs' lecture in the iMnctt, and he will see the whole subject lb plain as a pike-staff. Let this system of popular lecturing, aided by an independent press like the Lancet, continue, and quackery will soon follow its victims, and rest quietly in the grave. The British Hall Steam Packets, In consequence of an apprehension (hat in the con- ^ structioa of our Navigation Laws in relation to the taking on board and landing passengers and letters by the mail packet which is to ply between the Havana and Halifax, touching at Savannah, Charleston a ? J VT.,... V L. 1 ?0 the British Consul for this port, who has been appoint- a ed Agent for the line here, took the precaution to n ascertain the views which the Secretary of the Treasury would take of the subject?and we rejoice n at the liberal spirit and kindly feeling with which so h important a measure for this city has been met?as * these packets will run twice a month between the o Havana and Halifax, and thus open a direct and c regular communication between the West Indies, t! the Gulph of Mexico, Arc.&c. and New York.

Deeming the subject im- p portant, and hearing of this communication, MrBuchanan readily gave us a copy. ^ The following is the Secretary's replyo Ticuvtr Department, February 9, lSli. ^ Sir: In reference to the inquiry contained in your communication of the 15th ultimo, asking " whether in the w event of the line of her Majesty's Royal Post Ottice ?i Steam rackets extending their route from the Havana to Halifax, any construction of the Navigation Lawa of the ol United Statea would interdict such Mail Packet! stopping to deliver letters and land paaaengersat Savannah, Charleston and New York : and alone take on hoard at .. those ports, passengers and letters to he delivered over . to the United States Pest Office." 1 have the honor to pi state that I know of no provision in the Laws mentioned c( forbidding the prosecution of the euterprizc above refered te. It is to be expressly understood, however, as intimated by you, that " (Arse test elt do not carry mcrchandin r nor lake go ode on/reight."

Femmoke Cooper. Therr are, as in common with Mr. Webb's logic, several self-evident non stquiturs in the the proposition itself, but we shall tr^at the subject as it is evidently meant, and not jis it may happen to bs expressed through any confusion in the tunei's brain. Mr. Webb is not an instructed writer. He knows very little, in general, of any of the subjects of which he treats. Although he may have the reverse of " un grand talent pour le silence," he ha* " un grand later,I pour I'ignorance." I remember to have seen an editorial apology, for some theological blunder, a few years since, in the Courier, in which the satisfactory reason for the mistake was urged that " we" did not know that Episcopalians claimed to be Protestants ! ****** Mr. Webb's grossest libel on me, is for saying I have written a book abutive of my own country, with a view to make it sell in England. The gist ot the libel is in the motive. It is not easy to conceive a more atrocious charge against a literary man The lawyer will be surprised to learn that the only justification offered ?u trial, was the boo* itself. Any per son acquainted with England will smile at the notion that thecxtrait which follows, was writteii with a special view to obtain favor in that country ! Perhaps a more offensive idea cannot be presented to the class of English novel readers, iu general, thau an assumption of social equality on the part ol America. I shall never basely abandon the rights of an author to condemn or stigmatize whatever he may ceuctive merits reprobation in society, whether U haouen to he inHi irnniia nr not; hut I ii?fv nnv mm to ehow a line in Home A* Found that might not have been written by one who has the beat interests of America uppermost in his mind I will now merely add, that Mr- Webb's whole article, as it is connected with facta, is replete with mis-statements, as atrocious as is the character of the extracts 1 have here exposed. He says, among other things, he knows me well. Now, sir, my acquaintance with Mr. Webb is exceedingly slight, and has been confined to some six or eight occasions or interviews, most of which has taken place in the streets. or in public. Mr. Webb understands me, about as well as he understands law, thaology, and the parts he quotes. The articles of the New World, that were published and sent to all the jurors and grand jurors, at the Otsego circuit of 1810, are also a series of falsehoods, for which Mr. Benjamin, the editor, and Mr. Winchester, the publi.-her, shall yet be responsible, let who may have written themOne of the falsehoods is of a character so vile, that 1 will take this occasion to contradict it. I am charged with having delineated a widow la jy of this village, in Home As Found, in revenge for her not having called on nty family, on its return to its place. The act, itself, would be base enough, but the motive is such as ought only to be attributed to a wretch. I believe?nay, I know, for I heard them so express themselves?thai Mr. Cooper's analysis of the book of Fonda, induced many who had fallen into the error of believing that there were analogies in the facts of the suppositions and the real character to justify this supposed identity, t> change thtir minds. Several have frankly admitted their misconceptions of the statements of the books, and one or two have been honest enough to say that they can only account for their own impressions, by supposing that they wished to think in the way they had. As to the lady meant, it is no secret here. So far from the atrocious calumny of the New World being true, this lady and my family have been on the moat kind and friendly terms from the time the latter entered the village down to the present time. * * * * # While the jury was out. the aegociation for the retraction of die second libel was in progress. On this business, after dark, Mr. Crippen, the District Attorney, and Mr. Bowt.e, one of my counsel, went to Mr. Webb's roam. They were preceded by a man whom they did not recognise, until Mr. Webb's door opened, when he proved to be the crier of the court. The crier manifested a iitiie embarrassment, as one of the gent.emen thinks, on discovering who his companions were. He entered with the others, however, and took his seat; saying nothing. In a little time Mr. Webb withdrew witn the crier, and was some minutes in secret conversation with bim in the passage, as was witnessed by both the gentlemen named, on quitting the rootn. After the retraction wbb handed to me, thst Cooperstown party made their arrangements to leave Fonda. ta the night train. Mr. Kichard Cooper and aa/*?vir *? wm? ?v tiiv kaiua ?n 1* air f ?o rolatata^ volume ol Wendell, and in searching for that, Mr. Cooper found our liist volume of Home As Found, or that which contains the passage Mr. Webb has so mutilated, among some books on a table. Whether these were mere accidental coincidences or not, I do not know. But it is, at least, odd, that the < nIy volume, out of eight, which could be likely to point out the mutilated quotation, never reached the jury! 1 can also prove that after the jury came in, Mr. Webb had a portion of them in his room, regaling them with champagne, See. This fact alone, establishes the character of the jurors who were present, to a certain point; inasmuch as no man of a proper degree of sell-respect would place himself in a situation so likely to discredit his principle, or his knowledge of propriety. It was generally said by the bar, that the jury, as a whole, was much below the ordinary level ol country juries. Again, Mr. Webb, I am told by various persons, openly predicted at Fonda, before his cases came on, tnat the juries would never agree, in either of the ind ctments. One who felt he could prove the truth of his libels, ought to have had the assurance of an acquittal. But this is far from being all. Mr. Webb arid this, not ence, or twice, as I believe I can prove, but several times, and in public places, of both cases. Now, he has himself, since admitted the falsity of one of those very libe.'s. On what legal ground could he have the assurance that a jury would not agree, in a case clearly libellous, and in which he has nnder his own hand, confessed the falsity of the charge 1 If Mr. Webb will venture to deny these confidently expressed predictions, I will furnish the proofs of them. Great Tyler Meeting at Boston, Pursuant to public notice, a large and enthusiastic meeting was held at the Exchange Coffee lloese oa Wednesday evening. Col. Adams, President of the Mutual Insurance Company, was appointed Chairman, and Wiliiam Hilliard Secretary. Messrs. Hogan, Pratt and Hitchcock, were appointed a committee to prepare some resolutions for the meeting. Upon the report of the committee, the resolutions were ably end eloquently sustained by Mr. Hogan. He reviewed the political character of Mr. Tyler, and successfully defended him from the charges which have been brought against him. Mr. Hogan also defended the Secretary of State with signal ability, not omitting, however, to do justice to the other members cf ttie Cabinet Other gentlemen addressed the mee:iog,particularly Mr. Pratt, whose remarks were received with great satisfaction and applause. The resolutions were unanimously adopted ; and it was voted that n copy of them be forwarded to the President and Mr. Webster. There was also a committee appointed to prepare resolutions and call another meeting some future day, which will be done. Thus it will ba seen that Mr Tyler has somu btaity friends ia Boston, and if there was a preis here which would defend him from his foes, he would be the most popular President wo have ever had. Bat he is gaining friends, as fast as bis oppo nents examine his acts and his movements. Yours. J. B. The Bankrupt Lew. MR- Bbrrstt?

Sad Stat* of Thm-i in Philadelphia. fmiknd Bkhsltt:? I sent you a meager report o f a case, which occurred here some time ago in the Court of Criminal Sessions, Gahns vs. Win. Cavender, which it seems you did not relish. My object wav to gratify the feelings sf injured wcrth aud innocence, and give additional interest and favor to your paper here, with an extensive mercantile acquaintance who were familiar with the circumstances, and who (eel a lively interest for the welfare of Mr. Cavender. I regret that you suffered the matter to pass without notice, but in doing so consulted the propriety of your own views without doubt. There isaome little indication of business here in the way of tftde and commerce, but every thing looks gloomy tor the seasou ; without a currency ot stable value, and every prospect of its being worse before it is belter, completely unhinges the relations of business and social order. All confidence seems suspended. Jf a man receives bills of bank", he en- I deavors to pet rid of them ua aonn ?? noaaihlv h? fore the promising lie breaks upon his hands?hence traders are offering to anticipate their payments by tendering country bank paper. Indeed, we are a bank ridden people, and our ''sufferings is intolerable." " Night in the zenith of her dark do* main, is sunshine to the color of our fate." It seems that Shakaprare's prognostics of a war, would not be inappropriate to the present situation of our ? country. " The bay trees iu our country sre all wither'J, And meteors fright the fixed stars of heaven ; The nale faced moon looks bloody on the earth, And lean look'J prophets whisper fearful change : Rich men leek nil, and ruffiini dance and leap." This may n'era to you like the picture of aa idle fancy, or the chimera of a diseased imagination, nevertheless it embraces but too much truth. Look at the condition of our country and the coarse of legislation; and tell me if there oe not cause of fearful forebodings! When men become embarrassed in their pecuniary operations and affairs, they soon become desperate in their feelings and resort to war, or something worse, as h means of relief. All history attests this fact. What has induoed Lngland to wage an unchristian and unjustifiable war upon China 1 Not on account of the opium trade 1 No! Not for the glory of conquest or the benefit of civilization 1 No! But for the sake of lucreMoney she wants, and money she must have, to sustain her government and keep her wheels in motion. Truly, Bennett, " the almighty dollar governs the world." Was there ever such a strange anomaly presented in the history of nations as ours exibit at this time. At peace with all the world?with all elements of wealth about us?the richest country on earth in its resources?the land teeming with plenty and groaning under the fruitful products o well directed industry, and Heaven smiiiog ever us? still the general government and the state governments bankrupt, and the people unable to pay their debts! Fruitful ofispring of a rotten system of banking ; aye, there lies the etil after all?a scheme of the "devil," and the sooner it is sent to his warm dominion tor a final protest, the better for the inhabitants of terra firma. The ola scoundrel commenced his operations in this world by deceptien, h-nce the miseries and misfortune? of a fallen race. Tne banking system in our country has begotten two-ihirds of tne evils and troubles under which we are now suffering. It has begat an inflated system of credit, which nas induced speculation and fraud, and has brought desolation and ruin to the doors of thousands, besides disgrace as a pesple.
