THIS DAY IS PUBLISHED, Number Eioht or T HIS SEW VORK LAHCBT, JAMES ALEXANDER HOUSTON, M. D., EDITOR. The want of a weekly Journal, devoted to the advancement of Medical and Surgical Science, irrespective of local, individual, or parly interests, and established on biuad and permaneut basis, lias been long int by tne profession in this country. To supply thU detidtrmtum is theobjectof the present undertaking. The New Yosk Lakcet will be conducted on principle: somewhat similar to those which have been so successfully adopted in the management of several European publications, of a kindred character, and acknowledged utility. It will be entirely independent of any particular set of men, and will uniformly endeavor to advance, by every legitimate means within its reach, the great interests of the eminently useful and elevated profession, in whose service it will be engaged. When the proprietors stale that this periodical will give permanrat record to the really valuable results of the accumulated experience and observation of the thousands of practitioners scattered overthe widely extended Held of the United States, and will present to them, in the manner best adapted forpracticol utility, brief analyses of the labors of distinguished medical writers in Europe aad this country, they conceive that these considerations alone will be found sufficient to gain for the contemplated work all the patronage which they can detire. In order to he more explicit, however, the following outline of the plan of the publication is submitted. The contents of each number of the periodical will be comprised under the following heads I. Biief and piquant RKrii.ws of new Medical Books Periodicals, Lectures, and current Medical Literature in , general. II. Osioixal Coxvaiarnoxs from distinguished mem bers of the profession. i III Tin Mr.mco CiiiarRiirtt.

Such is the ground work of the plan on which this Na' tional Medical Journal will be conducted ; and on the carrying out of this plsn with faitbfuluess and zeal,the proprietors repose with, they trust, a not presumptuoua i confidence, their hopes of future and full success. | TheLccri will consist of sixtoen pages, Svo., double columns ; it will be published every Saturday, and forwarded to all parti of the Union with the stricteat pur.c1 tuality and despatch.

' W YO N YORK, SUNDAY MORI The Grand Literary, Fashionable, Legal, Judicial and Dllserllaneoua Dinner to Box on Friday Right, at the City Hotel. Brighter and b'ighter thines the tun of Chaslm Dickers'* popularity. The interest in his movements, and the desire to see, hear, talk to, eat and drink with him, instead of diminishing, increases daily- After the Boz Ball on Monday night, and the tremendous excitement occasioned by it, many thought that the exhaustion consequent on it, and mner nine mailers, wouiu prouuce a rc-ncuuu. ivm a bit of it. Although Boz has been extremely sick, and confined to the house ever since the night of the ball,he has been besieged by a dozen of applications to go out to private parties? to dinn* r, supper, breakfast, d? jur.? a la fourchette?any thing and every thing; to be dined, and wined, and done every thing to,but to be let alone. However, his sickness has been his excuse, and he has thus far escaped any serious infliction. but sick or well, nothing could excuse him from the great dinner last night, given to liirn by hi9 admirers at the City Hotel; and this, by the by, was oneol the most stn.-ible movements that hus yet been made in relation to him,since his arrival here. Who the original projectors of it were we do not exactly know; but believe that Charles A. Duvis, Prescott Hall, Anthony Barclay, John Duer, M. II. Grinnell, Henry Brevoort, Fitz Greene. IIalleck,and one or two others, were the prime movers in carrying it out to perfection ; and a most splendid affair if wis Before we proceed to speak of the dinner itself, perhaps we ought to give th invitation to (his dinner sent by n committee of forty to Brz, and his reply accepting the compliment. Here they are:? Nix York. Jan 24 i94i To Cimilkr Dicmxv, Esq.? ISsa* sir? Thcun i rsigntd, for themselves, ar.d in behalf of a wide circle of their fellow citizens, desire to congratui la'e jou on your si ft urrivul,?n;l tender to you asincere cud hearty welcome. 'ibongu j'< rsoti&Ilj unknown,still we can assure you that you will find yourself no stranger among ns That genius w ith which you have beeo to cignally gifted,and which your pen has directed with sueh consummate skill in delineating every passion , and sy mpnthy, and peculiarity of the human minil, hat secured to yen a pssspoit to all hearts; whilst your happy personifications, and apt illustrations, pointing at every tuin a practical and fruitful moral, have rendered your name us familiar to us as hons, hold words. In testimony of our respect and high regard, as a slight though thankful tribute to your genius,we rt quest that you will name as early a day as may suit your convenience to meet us in tbie city, at a public dinner,where as elsewhere, H will be our pride and pleasure to express to you our gratitude for the many ana rich intellectual feasts you have so often spread before us. We are, very sincerely and cordially, your friends. Tar.mont Horse, Bostox, J n.27,1942. Mr Dfar Siss? I need not tell you that I accept with inexpressible Eride and pleasure, the invitation with which you have onored me, and I cannot tell you how much moved and gratified I have been by the terms in which it is conveyed. Your kind and earnest words have done my heart good?you have made me feel indeed that I am no stranger among you. and I have looked atyour names a hundred times, as if they were the faces of old friends. As nearly as I can guess, I shall be in New York on Saturday the 19th of February, or it may be a day earlier. Any day towards the latter end of the following week that will suit you, will suit me. Be assured that you cannot name any time which will not be a bright day in the calendar of my life ; and that all hours and seasons will be alike welcome to me. Believe me. dear sira, with cordial and affectionate regard, your faithful friend, CHARLES DICKENS. To the Committee, be. he. he. New York. These were the documents that decided the committee upon giving this dinner, which was done by Gardner, one of the best caterere in New York, at the City Hotel last night, at a cost of 3-2,i500. The large room at the City Hotel is too well known to need any description at this time. It is only necessary to say that it was decorated last night by Piatt, Brothers, of Spruce street, in the most neat and chaste style imaginable. The whole thing was in very fine taste ; nothing gaudy or showy, and no tinsel. Above all, they have our thanks for not using any of that miserable trash called bunting, which so often defaces the most splendid public rooms in this city. On the present occasion there was none of this; but every thing was chaste to the last degree. The head of the table was at the w? st an I ol the room?the reverse of what it was at the treat Morpeth dinner, Four long tables ranged down the room parallel with each other; and each of these tables held twenty-seven persons on a side, making a total of two hundred and sixteen seats at these feurtables; which, with the four Vice Presidents, one at each end of these four tables, swelled the number to two hundred and twenty; to those must be added a cross table at the head, at which seats were placed for seventeen persons; makings total of two hundred and thirty-seven persons that sat down to dinner, The Chair was taken by Washington Irving ; on his right sat Charles Dickens, the honored guest ; on his right sat ths Rev. Mr Bellows. Along this table sat his Honor the Mayor, and other well known individuals; the Mayor being the'only laymen that was an invited guest who attended. The Governor and Lieutenant Governor were invited, but letters were read from each of them declining the favor, on account of it being necessary that they should remain in Albany to "dothe State some service," On each of the four tables were placed four splendid golden candelabras, each containing seven wax candles ; there were also three golden candelabras on the cross table at the head ; three golden candelabras on white pedestals at the extremely of the rsom between each table ; one hundred and thirty gas lights in the four splendid chandeliers, and ten handsome side lamps, with three lights each, round the room ; making in all three hundred and sixteen lights in that one room. The only ornaments round the room were these s Facing the main entrance on the large compartments, immediately on each side of the south wing, were two beautifully painted transparencies, in [ richly carved antique frames; these represented i Pickwick addressing the Pickwick Club, (the same ,1 C -.1 .L, .1 .-l.l .1 I lliiipirnuun uiui lurmcu mc cicvcuui lauirau m mc i Park theatre, on the night of the great Poz Ball) and Ral|>h Nickleby introducing Kate Xicklehy to his friends. Beaide these ornaments, there were twelve marble busts on richly carved antique brackets; four at the top or west end of the room, in each compartment of the wall, behind the chairman ; four between the windows at the bottom of the room ; one over each transparency; and one on the wall on each side of the main door. They were arranged as follows:? Head or th? Room. Bottom or the Room Reuses, Shakipearr, Franklin, Byron, Washington, Scott, Dickens. Milton. South Wall. NosthWall. Diana, Marshall, Apollo Demosthenes. The usttul drapery remained around the room; but with the exception of shields over each of the four doom at the extremities of the room in the north and south walls, the foregoing were the only ornaments that were resorted to ; and the Committee of Arrangements, Messrs Prescott llall, Charles A. Davis, John A. King, De Peyster Ogden, deserve

great credit for their good sense and good taste in excluding all other decoration? as out of keeping and irrelevant to this most interesting occasion. The anti-room usually used by the singers, Ace., on a concert night, aa a retiring-room, was fitted up on this occasion for the accommodation of a few i. ladies. Mm. Dickens and some select friends of the Committee who expressed a deep desire to be present t and witness the festivities as far as was cons'strnt with propriety V RE I ?NG, FEBRUARY 20, 1 The company began to assemble as early u? six o'clock, and among them some of the ladies Bat they did not go in to dinner until about seven o'clock.

Boz looked pale from his recent sickness, but he was in high spirit*, laughed heartily, ate heartily, drank wine with the parson, Washington Irving, the Mayor, and, in short, with every body that asked him, and that was over a hundred. The Vice Presidents were Gulien C. Verplanck, John A King, Philip Hone, D. P. Ogden, and most capital Vices they made. The dinner went off, as all such dinners should go off when they are well cooked, and are eaten w ith a good appetite?that is with a capital relish ; although enough was left to make a decent dinner for at Isast live hundred mora hungry men. All were delighted, looked hearty, happy and hungry, until the fourth course was carried away, when, instead of looking hungry any longer, they looked uncommonly thirsty. After the company were all in the room, to the number of 221, they all rose, and the band played " See the coaquering hero," See- as Washington Irving led in Boz by the arm. Boz laughed as he entered, and laughed heartily all the evening; laughed while he was carina noun, and lauorhed while he wan drinking water and hock wine, his favorite beverages. He also laughed tremendously at Irving'a dry jokes. Air.Ung the ladies present we noticed Miss Sedgwick, the talented authoress, a most intellectual looking woman, Mrs. Dickens, Mrs. M'Crscken, Miss Isaac Bell, Mrs. Burns, a beautiful woman, Mrs. Bacon, Mrs. Bean, and about forty others, who insisted on coming into the room, and at last got on the platform and sat behind the principal characters. The Harmonists attended, consisting of Charles Horn.jun , Austin Philips, Mr. Hosier, Mr. Maesett, superintended by Charles E. Horn. They sang " Non Nobis Domini." Boz's song, * There's a Charm in Spring," "<>od hath made us free, "Come dwell with nre," and " Hail smiling morn." At the head table sat the following persons: ? Chairman, Wjnnisores Irtivo. Charles Dickens, The M?yor, Rev. Mr. Bellows, r rofei.or Felton, Judge Tallmadge, Judge Jones, Malleoli V'iee Chancellor MoCcun, Vice Chancellor Hodman, Bryant, Judge Betts, C.C.Moore, John Duer. After the last course was cleared off, "Non Nobis" was sung. Then Washi scroti lavisr. rose and said?T never regretted more than I do at this moment my mtsl want of the habit o( public speaking. For I feil that I could now wish to give way to the whole current of my thoughts and leehnge ; and yet 1 feel that I am like a poor horseman, and that 1 rao't be careful IE R A 842. how I gel into the saOUle or I ?h*U be thrown Iron, my 8fdt. And yet, on t'utilier contideration, [ <1?, not see much cause lo regret this inability of mine to interest you in this way ; for I feel that there will be no want of champions ready lo take my place ; i see so many of them around me at this moment,firmly seated in their saddle, and who Hud it difficult torch in their steeds, until the signal is given them to sun So, therefore, I leave the field,and with afew prelum nary remarks 1 will dispose of my part of the sub ject. And yet, I never rose under deeper or more pleasureable excitement, or with more feelisgs of pride as an author, as I now look around with pride upon this assembly of my townsmen, met to greet the arrival of an author among them. 1 never was more proudly conscious of the intellectual chttrucb r of my countrymen than in witnessing litis butsiif enthusiasm, which lias been echoed from city to citv. to welcome a mere literary visitor to our land. (Cheers) And thin, too, at a time of great public distress, when every mind, more or less, is corroded by care, and the most prosperous among us c!nub's the foundation of his prosperity. Gentlemen, this euiiiusM-m is of the richt kind. It specks well fur the people?it speaks wt II f< r our nation. We have been accused ol being sordid aud of being mercenary?and too much given up to the pursuits ol < ur mere wordly interests. But 111 lire present in-tanoe, our enthusiasm has given the lie to the charge and has sp intaneously arisen in one wide-tpread scene of Homage paid to intellect. (Cheers.) Gentlemen, it is impossible for me to proceed?(Here Mr- Irving was almost overcome by his feelings, bat the cheering and enthusiasm was most tremendous?and cries of " go on, go on ") I find it impossible for me to niaite out a speteh; and there, fore, gentlemen, I'll give y?u a toast I'll give y?u' CiuiLEi Dickens, the literary guest o/ Vic nation.'" This was received with the mist tremendous diet ring, and three times three and two or three " Manchestere" over. Th"y were werry unanimous in this ere thing. The band played. Several wery enthusiastic g?ni!enien drank three glasses u pon the strength of their admiration for Boz, and then sat down. Then, amids: great silence, aud with all sorts of sensible, and sober, and uasober eyes upon him, Mr. Dickens rose, and was received with the moat enthusiastic applarse. On its subsidence he said:?Mr. President and Gentlemen, I don't know how to thank you?I really den't know how. You might suppose that by dint of custom; and from the experience von have given me, this difficulty has diminished,has dwindled into nothing, but I doss sure you, that the fact is exactly the reverse. Unlike that, rolling stone which gathers no moss," I have in my progress to this place collected around me such a heap of gratulation and weight of acknowledgment, tha: in my power of expressing it I have grown more and more unwieldtyevery hour! (Loud applause.) I picked up such a quantity ef fresh moss, so to speak,?(laughter,)?at a certain brilliant scene on Monday night,that I thought I never could, by any possibility, grow any bigger, (great laughter ;) but crowded upon that, there comes again to night a new accumulation, of each extent and magnitude that I am fairly at a stand still and can roll no more! (Laughter and enthusiastic applause ) Gentlemen, we know from the authorities that whenever a fairy stone, or ball, or reel of thread stopped of its own accord?which I do not ?some catastrophe was sure to be at hand. The precedent, however, stands good in my case, for remembering the short time I have before me, in this land of mighty interest, and the poor opportunities I can at best acquire of making myself acquainted with it. I have felt it almost a du'y to decline the honors which my generous friends elsewhere would heap upon me, and henceforth to pass through the country more quietly. Argus him self, though he had but onemouth for all hit hundred eyes, would have found the reception of a public entertainment obcc a week somewhat relaxing to his vigilance and activity. (Great laughter and applause.) And as I would lose no scrap or jot of the rich mines of gratification and instruction which await me, I know, on every hand, and of which 1 have already derived no email instalment, evenirom your hospitals and common jails, 1 have resolved to lake upiny staff and go upon my way rejoioing.and for theluturetoshake hands with Americans, not out at parties, but at liomr (Longcontinued oheers.) And therefore, gentlemen, 1 aay to-night with a lull heart.undnn honest purpose, and a grateful meaning that I bear with nie and shall ever bear wi'h me, a deeper sense of your kind affectionate ami noble greeting than it is possible to convey in word?that no Tluropean sky without, and no cheerful hont* within shall ever shut out this land from mv vision ; that I shall often hear your words of welcome in my quiet room, oftenest when it is most quiet, and see your faces in the winter evening fire?that it I live to grow old, the light of this hall, and others like it. will shine as brightly in my dull eyes fifty years hence as it does to-night, and that when my course is run the sympathy you have shown to me shall be paid back and well remembered, if it so plea3e God, in the enduring love and honor of my race: [Loud and enthusiastic applause-] Gentlemen, one other word in reference to this tiresome first person singular, and I close that theme I came here in an open, honest, and cos tiding spirit, if ever man did, and because i heartily inclined towards you?it 1 had felt otherwise ] should have kept away. As I came here without the admixture of the hundredth portion of n grain of base alloy?without the faintest unworthy reference to self in any word I have ever addressed to you, or in anv s-siiment I have ever interchanged with you, I claim to night, in reference to the past for tne last time, my right in reason, truth and justice, to appeal to you, as I have done on two former occasions, on a q jestionof universal literary interest iu both countries. And, gentlemen, I claim this justice, that I have made the appeal as one who has some right to speak and to be heard ; and that I have done so in a frank, and courteous and good humored spirit of deference to those who frankly, courteously, and good humoredly differed from ine in any or in every respect. (Cheers) For tnvsflf, gentlemen, I have ooly to add, that I will ever be as true to you as you have been to m;.

(Laughter.) There is, in this city, a gentleman, who, at the conclusion of one of my books? and I well remember that it was th? '* Old Curiosity Shop"?wrote to me in England a letter, so generous, so affectionate, so manly, that if I had wriiten that book under every circumstance of disadvantage, discouragement, ana difficulty, instead of with every thing to cheer and urge rne on, I should have found in its receipt my best and happiest reward (Oheers-) I answered him and he answered me. (Laughter,) ard so we kept on shaking hands autographically, (Laughter,) ?s if there were no ocean betweenu",(Laughter,) until I came hereon Saturday night, longing nnd eager to see him.? (Cheers.) And here he sits (said Dickens, with all the velocity and volubility of a young " going, going, gone" and slapping Washington Irvmg on ihc hack, with most extraordinary Sam Wtllerish gusto, amidst most terrific laughter and cheering )? And I need'nttell von that it is the crowning circumstance to me of this night, that he is here in this . opacity, (Great cheering) Washington Irving ! Why, gentlemen, I don't go up stairs to bed two nighta out of seven, as I have a credible witness very near at hand to prove (Here Boz gave a funny Sam Weller sort of a side look out of one eye half round at his wife who sat behind Bryant and laughed ; she blushed, hid her face in her handkerchiefs and laughed ; Miss Sedgwick who sat next her,laughed m<>st immoderately? the Mayor laughed intolerably?altogether too much for a Mayor--Judycs Betts, Jones, and Tallmadge laughed heartilv-wr must not ssy ridiculously, else we shall be indicted, and judge Rent inii'.lu make a grave speech to Bunkum about the immorality of the press The parson laughed, and all laughed, like trne Pickwirkians.)

The funniest and wisest part of the proceedings), was that there were no regular toasts; no nonsense about chatrch and state? queen?army?navy? congress?babies?and other rubbish- But every one gave what he chose to give?peifectly Pickwickian, and werry promiscuous, as Sam Weller said. The President next called upon John Duer who delivered one of the best and most original speecheo of the evening. Mr Dunn said, there is a duty, Mr. Paesident, 1 feel myself called upon to perform?a solemn duty; and it is wi h a solemnity befitting the occasion, that 1 propose and h?pe to discharge" it If, therefore, there are any persons present who expect from live a speech, meant or fitted to entertain their fancy,or to awaken an uasermiv merriment, let them prepare themselves to endure a disappointment that they will certainly meet. I appear before you, sir, in the grave character of a public prosecutor, or accuser: and as I have a deep sense of the dignity and importance of the office,so it is witfeout fear or faver that I proceed to execute it. You have before you, though you little suspect it, a great criminal?a public and very notorious offender; and it is against him that the proceedings are instituted, that I am appointed to conduct; and you, gentlemen, ull unconscious as you now are, are the jurors empanelled to try the cau?e, and to pass upon the guilt or innocence of the accused (Laughter ) It hi b b"f n with great difficulty that we have possaKied ourselves of the person of this criminal.
