THIS DAY IS PUBLISHED, Number Eight or THE NBW YORK LAHCET, JAMES ALEXANDER HOUSTON, M. D., EDITOR. The want of a weekly Journal, devoted to the advancement ofMedicaland Surgical Science, irre*pective of local, individual, or party intereit*, and established on a bread and permanent baiia, ha* bean long felt by the profeiaion in thia country. To supply this deeideratua* i* the object of the preaent undertaking. The New York Lancet will be conducted on principle* somewhat similar to those which have been so successfully adopted in the management of several European publication*, 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 mean* within it* reach, the great interest* of theeroi nently useful and elevated profession, in whose service it will be engaged. When the proprietors state that this periodical will give permanent record to the really valuable reiulta of the accumulated experience and obiervatiou of the thou andi of practitioner* Mattered over the widely extended field of the United State*, and will preaent to them, in the manner beat adapted forpracticol utility, brief analyae* of the labor* of diatingaiahed medical writer* in Europe and thi* country, they conceive that theie coniideration* alone willhe found luifioient to gain for the contemplated work all the patronage which they can dedre. In order to be more explicit, however, the following outline of the plan of the publication ia aubmitted. The content* of each number of the periodical will be compriaed under the following heada:? I. Brief and piquant Review* of Dew Medical Book*, Periodical*, Lecture*, and current Medical Literature in general. II. Obioival CoNTaiacTio** from di*tingui*hed member* of the provision. III.

W YO YORK, THURSDAY MC Albany. | (Correspondence of the Herald.] Albany, Feb. 21. 1842. Iiankt ? Redemption ? Aftemoon Session* ? Safety Fund?Auction /mxo?Empty Treasury, tfc la the AMetnblj to-day, after the reception of petition*, of which there waa a great number, had been got through with, Mr. Cutleh moved for the consideration of the resolution introduced by him on Saturday, in relation to the redemption of the notes of broken banks, and the House refused. Mr. Ghout, pursuant to previous notice, brought in a bill further to amend the acts of 1830 and 1832, for the better security of mechanic* and others erecting buildinsg in the city of New York, and which is, by the bill proposed, to be extended to the city of Brooklyn. Mr. G. remark ed that this bill would carry out the suggestion made by the Chancellor in the case of Donaldson vs. Wood, in the Court for the Correction of Errors,held in Dee. '39 (See 22, Wendell, p. 399,) which was that the workmen of the sub-contractor should have the lame liin upon the original contractor wniea me workmen af the original contractor now hare upon the owner of the building. Thii, in the opinion of the Chancellor " would be strictly in accordance with the principle of equitable lien, or privileged claim, against the fund belonging to the debtor, which has been adopted by the present statutes." Mr. G. desired to call attention to the provisions of this bill, aad believed that the equity of its pro* visions would secure safe and speedy passage through the House. Mr. LooMifl Called for the consideration of his resolution for holding afternoon ses ions on and after Monday the28;h, and it was rr jeered. Mr. Swackhamer submitted a jesolution, requiring the various incorporated rail road and canal companies, to whom the credit of ibe state h^d been loaned, to make to the legislatuica report of theiraflairs. Mr. Hathaway gave notice of his intention to introduce a bill in relation to the Chemung Canal and feeder. Mr. Seymour gave notice of his intention to introduce a b.ll restricting the liabilities of the banks contributing to the safety fund. The House, in committee of the whole, then resumed the consideration of the one day election law After several amendments, Mr. Seyaiouh objected to the power being rested in the board of inspectors to commit a person to jail for thir'y dav?. who shall in their sieht or hearine disturb the puhl e peace. He said it was now welf kno aq that I inspectors {of election were generally politicians, ana their judgment might be perverted by their political predilectionss and he did not, therefore, think it right that they should be entrusted with this power. Kc oltertd an intendment to the effect that they might only be allowed to commit a man for trial, whieh, as modified by the Speaker, was adopted. Various amendments were then propesed. Seme were adopted, and others rejected ; but they mainly related to the phraseology of the bill, or to making the provisions of the sections in consonance with previous amendments. After a long discussion the committee rose and reported progress A message was received from the Senate, informing theHouse that they had concurred in certain bills. By unanimous consent Mr. Bonnham reported a bill in relation to collection of taxes in the city of Albany, and the House adjourned. Mr. Hoffman has not been in his seat during the last three or four days, at least during this debate on the election law. It is understood that he is busily engaged as Chairman of the Committee of Ways and Means, in preparing a report and bill on the Comptroller's report, whica will express and fully derelope the views of the majority, in relation to public improvements, and the policy of the state on that subject. Mr. Wuin has introduced a bill to relieve the theatres from the onerous tax which they are now yearly obliged to pay to the Seeiety for the panlihment, &c. of juvenile delinquents. This is certainly a just propesitioe ; ana 1 am disposed to think the House will treat it favorably. It has been referred to the State Prison Committee, of wmcn mr. w. is cnairman. Iu answer to a communicition from the Home, the following report was received from the Comptroller to-day: CoMrraoLLea's Orrice, Albany, Feb. 21,1843. To the Assembly :? Tba Comptroller on a reference from the Assembly of the petition and an act to loan money to the trustees of the Oroton Academy, respectfully reports That there is no money which can be applied to the object referred to, without increasing tno embarrassment of the Treasury. There is nominally in the Treasury $14 918 14, of School Fund capital; there is aleo nominally in the Treasury belonging to the Canal fund $339 43d 16, and nearly as much belonging to other funds, but there is no money in the Treasury to represent these large sums, and they are only evidences of debts against the Treasury or General Fund. The true condition of the Treasury and of those funds, is shown in a statement appended to the communication from this office on the 16th instant Instead of having money to 1-nd for any object, the Treasury must increase its borrowings in order to meet the ordinary expenses of the Government. Respectfully submitted. A. C. FLAGG. By the annual report relative to the Institution for the instruction of the Deaf nod Dumb, it apnsora that Hurinr the venr thirsT-six miuila have teen received, and twenty-six left; leaving in the institation on the 31st day of December, 1841, one hundred end sixty-two pupils, being an increase of ten on the numbers retnrned last year, and a greater namber, with a single exception, than has been embraced. m any previous catalogue. During the past year, the receipts of the society, from every source including the balaace of #6,050 6-1, in the treasurer's hands at the elose of the year 1840, amount to $83,451 91; and the disbursements, during the same period, to $32,360 70; leaving on the 31st day of Deeember, 1841, in the hands of the treasurer, a balance of $1,090 21. In -tb? Senate, several petitions were received in relation to assessments in the city of New YorkAfter some little attention to business, the talking in relation to the repudiation resolutions was resumed. Mr. Paige addressed the Senate on the subject. If for no other reason than to effect a saving of time, this question should now be repudiated. It is understood, that the loan authorized for the completion of the |Chemung canal and feeder, has been negotiated. The bill, it will be remembered, authorizes $150,000 to be raised on a six per cent stock. The City Bank of Albany, is reported to have taken it at this rate. This certainly indicates a returning of confidence. The Albany Burgesses Corps, a spirited independent corps, give a grand ball to-morrow evening, in honer of the anniversary of the birth of George Washington. From the indications, it will be a great affair, as their previous ont-s has always been. Tfee check aproaites, too, are determined to celebrate the occasion with a " grand fancy ball," at the Law Bnildiogs. In order to enable ft to pass off with greater re/at, the celebrated " North Kiver boatmen, has been engaged. Cave ULcitCAa. Baltimore. [Correspondence of the Hereld.] Baltimore, Feb. 22, 1842.

I this morning witnessed a countenance which betokeaed a heart that has ,beea racked with sudden and onexpected affliction. Such was the countenance of Mr. , one of the most respectable end wealthy of our citizens, and president of one of the most extensive banking institutions in the city. Imagine the feelings of that father, who, upon descending this morning to his splendid boudoir, heard the calamitous intelligence that some one had persuaded his graceful daughter to leave her paternal roef, and share the lot of a mustaeheed eapUm.

But this they do not nor will not do. The same kind of style to which they hare betn accustomed in their habits of living must be supported, no matter at whose cost or at what sacrifice. Upon this ground, it is at least debatable, and falls short of the intent and meaning of the act. Our city affairs remain quite passive. The Rev. Mr. Finney is here, kicking up a dust among the Christians. He is indisposed to defile himself by the leant association wnh the impenitent. His eloquence finds sufficient sea-room among professing christians?whom he charges with inconsistency and want of devotion. His labors meet with but poor encouragement in our churches.

I am a constant reader of your valuable and truly independent paper, which, for variety of matter, able, high-minded, and spirited, far surpasses any in the Union- The moral and political influence which it wields over the people of this great nation is destined to herald your memory to " generations yet unborn," whose cities arc to stud ** ' I he wide rolling Pacific ; and cause your life, Character and course, to be held up, in your own day, as one who has done more towards the reformation of public morals, religion, politics and the press, than a thousand other men who have spoken from " high places." I invoke you to persevere in your straight forward course,and a name awaits you, and a chaplet, which even Charles Dickens may envy. Although your correspondents are numerous, and hail from all parte of the country, I have never known one to write from this most highly favored place, and it haB occurred to me that it would not be amies to let you know, that even in this part of the Old Dominion, your merits are appreciated, and the Herald sought after and read with avidity. Winchester is like most other inland towns of the same population [viz. 4 or 5,000 ] We have our banks, financiers, lawyers, doctors, politicians, divines, phrenologists, lecturers, and great men of all sorts, with plenty of pretty women ; besides an assortment of literary and tee-total societies, and the usual quantity of gossip, slanders, dandies and flirts?both whig, democratic, and conservative. In fine, we have all the necessary material of a town in the state of abstractionists. Allow me, this time, to say a few words in relation to a regular course of lectures now being delivered here, at the rate of one per fortnight. Some twelve months since a literary society was formed hsre, by a gentleman of your city, the agent for the National and Parent Society, under the name and title of the Winchester Lyceum. The society does not, at present, boast of many members ; but it is in a progressive state, and its prospects are somewhat flattering, supported as it is, by nearly all the literati ef the place. The first lecture, called the " introductory" one, came off in January last, and was delivered by the President, the Rev. Mr. A. It gave a general history of all the periodicals of note, and as far as my capability will allow me to judge, was an able, correct, and interesting document, giving entire satisfaction to the Rev gentleman's audience. The second lecturer was Mr. T., a young lawyer of no mean talent, who promises, at some future day, to be a gentleman of note. His subject was " The Abuses and Corruptions of Learning," which he handled beautifully, displaying a depth of research and refinement of taste, that captivated his hearers, and won praises for himself. The only objection 1 have heard to this lecture was its brevity, a most objectionable objection to lecturers In general, and I should think, to certain ones in particular.? The next one iu order was P. w. W., Jun. Esq , a lawyer, too, and one of note, with n large anH lucrnliv* nrnctice. His subject was "The hie and times of OhverCromwell." It was quite an interesting thread of incideits; er a very pretty compilation ef events, just, maj be, a little too long for those who were not fond of history. But last night we had "one grand" lecture, and the fourth one. The subject was "Poetry, Painting and Music " The lecturer, Dr. T. is principal of a female seminary, and in connection with his beautiful and accomplished lady, is celebrated for "teaching the young idea how to shoot." Bat in the capacity of lecturer, I fear the Doctor has something to learn. I.know not how you conduct aach things in New York, but it appears to me that we have one thing connected with our lectures herr,that is not fashionable elsewhere. It is this: they are always prefaced with a hymn by the choir, and a prayer by the minister ; and concluded with an anthem and benediction. There is something very solemn in all this, and I hare a cariosity to knew if snch is the fashion with the present society in your city. Mrs. T , wife of the Governor of M , and Carcnt*, passed through here a few days since, on er way home. Now the honey moon in these diggings does not wane so quickly, and wonder, aud turmiie, and conjecture, have been puffing for a week to find cause for such movements. Your Baltimore correspondent of the 8th throws the latent, and a new lignt, on the mystery. Have you nothing more of it T I am, air, yours truly. Taio. Hart Isbnrg.

Notwithstanding all the professions that hare been made of desiring to legislate for the people, and them alone, there is evidently bnt one objeet in view by the whiga ol the Senate, and that is to do something that will have a tendency to break up if poiaible the democratic party.

Contrary to all expectation, the steamer Charter Oak has been resetted from the rocky shore < I Fisher's Island, where she was driven during the late gale last week, and now lies safely moored at ear wharves, apparently uninjured. It is very probable that she will shortly resume her station on the sound, ae she baa not sustained damage sufficient to cause much delay. It is a very reaatks ble escape, aad in faet is almost miraculous that she did not strike upon some rock, when drifting about the Sound] in a state unmanageable, and go to the bottom, together with all hands on board. But she is safe, and her passengers also been landed in safety. Thanks be to him who rides upon the wind and directs the storm, for their preservation. A Convention of the W. T A. Society met to-day, in commemoration of the immortal Washington. The greatest assemblage of people thai we have ever witnessed on such an occasion. Some thousands of individuals, from different sections of this county, mostly however, citizens ot this city, aj -cmbled nt the churches to beer addreses from several distinguished temperance orators from different parts of the State. The spectacle was lofty and imp sing, and filled the heart of every true philanthropist with enthasiafm. The brass band belonging to this city and an adjoining villa, accompanied the procession, which extended through a number of streets, far as the eye could reach. We are in the midst of a mighty revolution, in morals and religion, which seems to "promise something wondrous great." J B. Jr. An Account or the Indians?Few of our cits, zens know that we live nearer to civilized Indians than almoet nay other sectien of the United .States. Theciuntry owned by the Choctaws exteadslrom the Arkansae to Red River commencing at Fort Sraiih, and running up th" Atkansas to the Cans dian, to the limits of the United States, and with said limits to Red lisver, down Red River to where a due south line with Fort Smith from the State line of Arkansas strikes Red River. The Chocfaws number about fifteen thousand, and are unquestionably highly advanced in civilization. The constitution upon which their laws are based lias been printed in English and Choctaw, and circulated through the nation. Their government is ay sterna tic and regalarly organized in the Democratic form. It consists ofa council of forty members Theler* ritory bsing divided into four districts, each die trict elects representatives as we do in proportion to the amount of their population. Each of the four districts have a chief, who sit ae a body, fer the upproval of such laws as are enacted by the council in the council a speaker and clerk are anaaally chosen. The members receive $2 a day and iheir mileage. The council convenes annnally on the first Monday in October, and is in session generally wuui mu wccftii The home in which the asaembly meets ia a spacious ud comfortable building, erected by treaty stipulations, with convenient rooms for comaitteea, a gallery and aeata for apectatora There are no lawa among the Cheetaws in regatd to debt; and the creditor when, he trusta, trusts to the honor of the debtor. It i? curiona how beautifully Republican thie one fact makea the xovernment The people are left with the largestlimit of power, and it ia their loaa if thia power ia not boneatly exercised. For the arbitration of civil mat* tera, and the trial of erimiaale, there exists in form a judicial ayatem; indges are appointed by the iegialature, and they held their courta at stated period*. The judicial ayatem ia, with aoote exceptiona, very aimilar to the codea of many of oar State*. The cotton produced by the Choctaw planter* on Red River will amount thia year to over one thousand bale*. There are aeven cotton gina in the nation with a preapect of a rapid increaae ; and on Red River, there are several grist and aaw mill*. On Ragy about fifteen miles from Red River, a very intelligent Cboetaw of the name ef Col. David Folaom ha* very excellent salt works, which sup* af even Texas planters with a Urge quantity of t. There arc eight er ten blacksmith shops, four of whieh have blacksmiths furnished under treaty stipulations, and the rest, open principally in the ploughing season, are worked by natives. The schools of tho Choctaw* are well attended and an ambitious rivalry exists among their pupils By our treaty stipulations, the United States have I expended, from the date of the firat treaty with them, (January 20th. IS'25,) to that of the two last, (September 27th, 1830,) the sum of .#20,500 ; $2 500 ol this snm was appropriated to the general school* ia the nation; and the #18,000 dedicated to the "Choctaw Academy." The effect of oduaation is visible at every step. The rude wigwam is gone, and ia its stead may be seen neat and comfortable frame and log dwellings; the matrons sewing, spinning and weaving; and areund them large plantations yielding corn, oa's, pumpkins, potatoes, and great varieties of vegetables. There have been lately erscted several splendid mansions entirely by native mechanics, and they are now filled and adorned with all fashionable furniture. It must be pleasing to all our citizens to behold this advanced stats et soeiety among the Indians of their border eonatry. To everv one indeed under the American flag, it will be highly interesting. We have been accused of injuring and plundering the Indians?let these facts be our defence. The Choctaws will greatly add to the trade of Red River. This season they will send down one thousand bales, and next season they will double it. Our interior country is very large, and it becomes us as citizens of a town, that in time may be of vast extent, to take advantage of every opportunity of securing trade around us.?Natchilocht* Herald. w.. ~ - t Onri?(r **v*ral of the warm day* last week, the wild geese were seen Hying in flock* of ali sort*, size* and number*, over our city to the North.

We had before been induced to balieve that the passage of the wild geese to the north was a sign of the break up of winter; but in future, we will believe that that bird knows no more of the weather to come than the almanac makers themselves know. Yesterday the weather, though not as cold as it has been in all times past, operated aa severely upon the ears of those who had not caps to draw over them, as did the coldest day last winter St. /ami* Rrpub Ftb. 9. Illinois and Wiseonsa.n.?The annexation of the northern part of Illinois to Wiskonsan occupies the attention of the people to that district, just at preaent, when the State is so much in debt and the currency so bad. Petitions are in circulation concerning this change baaed upon the ordinance of 17S7, which declare! that the constitutional boundary of Illinois, on the north, " shall b? an east and west line drawn through the southerly bend of lake j Michigan," and extended west to the Mississippi. The settler* in Northern Illinois have bean for a long time viry desirous to join Wiskonsan. They look upon the Southern part of Illinois as under the rule of the Heosicrs, and being so ranch the largest portion ot the whole State, that tht Hootiara will bold good in ptrprluo.

The following it a? extract, entitled an aoecdote of Catlin and kit horse Charley ' On this jjurney, while he and I were twenty Ave Ja\ S alone. WU had much time, anil the of stance*, under which to learn what wo had aa yet overlooked in each other's "haiactvrs, aa well aa to draw great pleasure and teal benefit from what wu already had learned or each othar in our former travels. " 1 generally halted on the bank of tone little stream, at hall on hour of auuaet, where feed u us govd for Charley, and wh 're I could get wood to kindle my fire, and water for my collar. Th" first thing was to undresa 'Charley,' and dtive down his picket, to which he was fastened, to grave over a circle 'hut he could insciibe at the end of hit laso. In this wise he busily fed himself until nightfall \ and after my colfee was made and drank, I uniformly moved him up, with his picket by my head, so that 1 could lay my hand upon his laso iii an inatant, in ease of any alarm that was liable to drive him from me. On one of these evenings when he was grazing aa usual, he slipped the laso over his head, and deiibarately took his supper at his pleasure, wherever ha chose to prefer it, as he was strolliDg around. When night approacheJ, I took the laso in hand and endeavored to catch him, but I seon saw that he waa determined to enjoy a little freedom ; and hecontinually evaded me until dvik, when I abandoned the pursuit,making up my mind that I should inevitably lose him, aud be obliged to perform the rest of my journey on foot. He had led me a chaae of hall a mile or more, when 1 left him busily grating, and returned to my little solitary bivouac,ana laid myself on my bear-akin and went to sleep. ' ]n the middle of the night I waked, whilst I was laying on my back, and on half opening my eye*, I waa instantly shocked to the soul, by the hugh figure (aa I thought) of an Indian standing over me, and in the very instant of taking my scalp! The chill ol horror that paralyzed me for the Orst moment, held me still til) 1 saw there was no need of my moving?that my faithful horae ' Charley* had ' played shy' till he had ' tilled his belly,' and had then moved up, from feelinga of pure affection, or from instinctive fear, or possibly from a due share of both, and taken his position with his tori<Mat the edgo of my bed, with his head hanging directly over me, while he was standing fast asleep! " My nerves, which had been most violently shocked, were soon quieted, and I fell a*leepkrand so continued < ntil sunrise in the morning, when I waked, and beheld my faithful servant at some considerable distance, bnaily ad work picking up his breskfost amongst the cant broke, along the bank of tha creek. I went as busily to work, preparing my own, which was eaten ; and after it I had ano'her half-hour of fiultless endeavors to catch Charley, whilst beseemed mindful of i?w?? w Ikssrcumg bcfore.sud oontinually tantalized me by turning around and arou nd, an <1 keeping out of my reach. I recollected the conclutive evidence of his attachment and dependence, which he had voluntarily given in the night, and 1 thought 1 would try themln another way; so I packed up my things and slung the saddle on my back, trailing my gun in my hand, and started on my route. After! i had advanced a quarter of a mile, 1 looked backjend saw him atanding with bis head and toil very high, looking alternately at me and at the spot where I had been ea camped, and left a little the burnirg. In tbi* condition he stood and surveyed the dairies around for a while. 1 continued on. He at length walked w ith a hurried step to the spot, and seeing every thine gone, heganto neigh very violently, and atlaat itaiirdolf at the lullett speed, and overtook me, patting within a few pacer of me, and wheeling ahout at a few rod* diatance in fr at of me, trembling like an aspen leaf.
