D., Professor of Surgery, Arc. New York : Ilarper Ac Brothers. 1812. 8vo. pp. 452. There's no chance now-a-days for the untraveiled chirurgeon. How, indeed, can n poor devil who has never left hia own fireside and the wife of his bosom, for m?re than four-and-twenty hours at a time, enter the lists of 'surgery with surgical and pathological anatomy,' in competition with the man who has made the. ' grand lour,' hob-nobbed with #1?a L-.ner of ?lio rnnnihnl laliinila nn(i pninvpH u IIIC lllllg w. 111-. ^ ? , --.I-/ 'pic-nic' on the top of the Pyramids 1 Dr. Mott has been one of the most fortunate of these surgical peripatetics, and with a generous kindness, that does him infinite honor, he now condescendingly takes those who have staid at home by the hand, and shows them the kingdoms of the earth, with all the power and the glory of them, for the trifling sum of two dollars a head. In order to afford our numerous readers an opportunity of participating in the favors, of which we have thus been the humble and gratified recipients, we will introduce to them our venerable confrere, in the full spirit of the merciful advice of dear, old Isaac Walton, about impaling a live frog?'Treat hint tenderly as a brother!' The titlepage of this volume is exceedingly interesting in a philological point of view. 'Travels, embracing Observations during a Tour.' Very extraordinary travels indeed ! The geographical announcement which follows, is somewhat startling at first sight, and when viewed in connection with ine chronological statement, proauces a very imposing effect, and, under no ordinary excitement, the believing reader turns to the precious pages which contain the observations of a mtin of science during a sojourn of eight years, in the most interesting portions of the Old World. After a ' Preface,' in which, with a modest and characteristic dignity, the author describes his gracious ' acceptance' of a Professorship in the Stuyvesant Institute Medical School, we have an ' Introduction,' which lets us at once into the secret of the manufacture of the book. Long belore the appearance of the volume, it was currently reported that the 'editing' of it had been entrusted to the hands,?we are not sure that we can say the head,? of a newspaper paragraphist in this city, who had attained a very respectable mediocrity in accurately recording " Catastrophes most awfulHouses in ashes, ana the fall of stocksBirths, deaths and marriages?" and who, we feel in justice bound to say, is shrewdly suspected to be the veritable author of two of the very best ale-house puffs that have ever appeared in print. The name of this Editor does not appear on the titlepage, but the ' Introduction,* as we hare miu, lets lite cat out of the bag ? p?i? dimple' does not play a more conspicuous part in the excellent novel that is known by his name, than does the penny-a-liner aforesaid in this ' Introduction.' In the imposing grandiloquence?the turgid style?the bewildering imagery?the novel grammatical construction of the sentences, the real author ' stands confest.' We give a few specimens:? To pluck out these ideaj sorrows from the mind, no other alternative remains but that of severing, for the time, all connexion with those associations, scenes, or pursuits which have been the fostering and insidious source of the mischief. In exchange for these, the mind is renovated and refreshed by the tonic influence of those everchanging novel scenes, which the tableau of human life in the Old World is constantly unfolding to our observation. New ideas, and feelings, and impressions arise, upon the ruins of corroding thoughts, that have been suspended or crushed; and while the intellectual repast is thus constantly being offered to our acceptance, in some more and more grateful excitement, none are permitted to imprint themselves so deeply upon the mind as to fatigue or weary by their monotony or insipidity. The magic wand of health is in our own hands, and may be called to dissipate all inorbid fancies, or summon to our aid whatever is most pleasing. What mysterious beautyWhat startling tma gery! what delightfully novel grammatical construction of the sentences! Whoo! * Eureka'! We have found it! What 1 Why we couldn't for the life of us make out the meaning of the initial 'P' standing in solitary grandeur after the Author's name?but our eyes are now opened?we now know what 'Vai.kntine Mott, M. D. and P.' means?it means ' Vat.kntink Mott, Doctor of Medicine and Poet. But here is another remarkable sentence:? To my own beloved country, then, I gladly and exultingly return, with attachments tenfold stronger, if possible, to her matchless institutions, than even those which I felt pressing and crowding around my thoughts as I lingered on the last crimson gleams of the twilight, fading behind the blue hills of the Neversink, and bade my native land adieu! This is rather too poetical. The worthy Doctor says he 'lingered on the last crimson gleams of the twilight.' Just imagine, gentle reader, the venerable surgeon gliding on a sunbeam! With all our love for him, we cannot help saying thatiin our opinion, he would make rather a clumsy sort of a cncruh. The same genius shines throughout the volume. Ilere and there, full of that amiable feeling and tender sensibility which every one knows l>r. M<>rr to possess, we have a few sentences which the ' Editor' has luckily failed to rmatculatr, but, as the wise man hath it, they are ' like jewels of gold in a swine's snout,' and only render the 'additions, emendations, and corrections' of the paltry paragraphist more abominable. In the composition of these four hundred and fiftytwo octavo pages, it is perfectly evident, there has been a terrible massacre of all the (luide-books, 'Pencillings by the Way,' and ' Incidents of Travel,' that have appeared within the last half dozen years. Author or Editor, with most praise-worthy perseverance, has hunted up his predecessors, " And plundering mug. Has sacked *11 o'er like an industrious bug.'' Had they 'sucked' to any purpose we could forgive tliern. Rut the book has not even the equivocal merit of being a good compilation. We will undertake to read the work over again, from beginning to end,I' Introduction' and all, trithout the help of ( Jlenlivat, if a dozen ' millinrrt' cannot be found in Division street, any one of whom, placed in a circulating library, with the help of her scissors and a pot-full of paste, will make a much better book. Aproj>os of those arti$U??there is one passage in the book, which presents an unrivalled specimen of the true ' milliner's style* of description. inne is an illusirioiis name, that of one wh'> sustained the character of compagnon du voyage to the author, of which we are pained to find no mention in the hook?we mean that of the too fascinating Et.pridgk. The remarks of Dr. Et.dridok on men and manners?the particulars of hia intercourse with the Macenas, whom he was wont so affectionately to address 0 ti pratldlum ?t dale* decw stua"? W YO V YORK, MONDAY MOI the tragic scene amid the 'gloomy fortroaacs of the Rhine,' when the injured patron exclaimed " OJi profanum ruleua at arceo"? the abrupt 'making himself scarce' of the protege: these and a thousand kindred reminiscences would have added an indescribable interest to the volume. We arc truly sorry that the 4 Travels' did not 4 enthral e' these 4 observations.' The res|>ected publishers, however, will remember our suggestion when preparing the second edition for the press. It has been hinted, indeed, that L>r. Mott'b former associate will himself probably supply this lamentable^ and unaccountable omission. Hoping that wa incur no risk of robbing the vo lumeofits "freshness," we will immediately proceed to present our readers with the sum and fubstance of Dr. Moit's medical ' observations' in ' Europe and the East, in the years 1884, '36, '36, oo, ua, w unu 11:? LThe /.nnctl then gives a number of extracts containing ehit-chat about distinguished medical men in the countries visited by Dr. Mott.] Some carping, craving creatures may hera whine the remark that the author, after a sojourn of eight years in * Europe and the East,' might have favored his brethren with a few original and interesting ohnervations on the climate?natural history?and diseases prevalent in the countries which he visited. But we're not unreasonable-not we. There are more leeches than the horse-leech'?and that our author knows?which never cease crying 'give; give!' But we are unlike them all. Without ona idle murmur, we accept' the gifts the gods provide,' and with grateful hearts receive the precious information that, after an interval of five-and-thirty years, Sir Astley Cooper recognised Dr. Mott?that Roux has extracted six thousand cataracts?and that Velpeau received our author as a brother?we would have despised him if he hadn't?that Larrey wears Nipoleou's old hat?and, most interesting of all, that Civiale, happy dog, has amassed a princely fortune! But here is a fragrant extract, to which we will nrati* nn nn-irnririHtp mntfn?nni> that nnmhinpa holh rhyme and reason, according to oar author:? ' What pleasure can exceed The smoking of iht weed!' dr mott's opinion or tobacco. If this ' good creature' and ' precious weed,' as it was called when first brought into vogue by Sir Walter Raleigh, were so extremely deleterious aa some would have us believe, it appears to me inconceivable how we should find the moat vigorous constitutions and well-developed forms amongst those very people where it is so profusely employ?d,chiefly in the form of smoking. In France its consumption is certainly on the increase, and in England we should judge that it is getting more and more into vogue. It is not our intention to dilate upon this disputed question ; but cur experience leads as to the conclusion that much more censure has baen cast upon our American Virginia plant than its merits. Ia one very fatal and distressing form of disease, to wit, laryngeal Phthisis, and Bronchitis among public speakers, the fact is ?ery clearly established, that the moderate habit of smoking, by the drain it accomplishes and itf anodyne qualities, has been eminently useful, at least aa a preventive for that peculiar malady so frequent ia the northern part of the United States, especially among the clergy. But our gradually diminishing space admonishes us that we must tear ourselves away from this amusing volume. One more extract and we have done: de. more ? a thiolmus. [Here follows a passage in which the worthy Doctor expresses his views respecting the salvation of the disciples of Mahomet.] This passage demonstrates, according to our way of thinking, that Dr- Mott is about as sound a theologit n as he ie a good poet. But the discussion of this point would lead us to violate a most sensible maxim?one which the good doctor in leaving the walks of operative surgery, in whick he has gained something more substantial thaa empty fame, for the purpose of writing a book, has most foolishly and wantonly despised?that maxim is, reader, as you already guess, he ttjtok ultra crepidam ' We have rather more of the ' milk of human kindness' than asually falls to the lot of critics, and in the full glow of our charitable disposition, we reiterate this salutary proverb, and say, in the naiqe of all the gods, let such a surgeon stick to his knife! la operative wg'ty, Dr- MottJ the world knows, is a hero? but in syntax, he is a very dunce: in the domains of 'surgery with surgieal aud pathological anatomy,' he is, to use his own simile, a Napoleon?in the fair fields of literature, he is the very incarnation of dull, ness. Os glandular swellings and burrowing fisttr las he gazes with an experienced eye?on the face si Nature, and the scenery of the moral world, he looks with the interesting ignorance of a blubbering boy.

The following letter, giving a most admirable account of Boz, waa written by Mr. Leater to Washington Irving, sometime during the last year. It will be read with great interest at the present time, especially as Mr. Dickens is now on the eve of ?-r .k_ ?;?.i uial? ?r ,u? UniOD:? Lo?do?, July ?, 1940. To WiiHisaTtn lavinc, E(i(. Sir? Underatanding that you have often expressed your admiration for the genius and character of Charlei Dickens, I hare thought that some account of this celebrated author might not be uaiuUrrsting to you. I hare had the pleasure of visiting Mr. Dickens at his house, and 1 trust that this letter will not be considered an ill return for his kindness to one whose only claim upon him was an introduction from Thomas Campbell. 1 believe there is na English author now liviug who is so much admired and read by our country mm as Mr. Dickens, and consrquently,no ene respecting whom Americans may be supposed to have so great a desirefor information. I will therefore give a brief sketch of some of his conversations with me, and speak of his character and history, so far as I may be permitted to do so, with proper regard to his private feelings. If he should ever write his autobiography, riving a full picture of his early history, it would probably be one of th most interesting books in any language. The last injunction I received from several of my fiiends when I paited with them In America, was to tell them in my letters something about " Boz." There were many persons in our country who could not bepievailed upon to read his works for a long time after the publication of the Pickwick Papers. So many vulgar representations of Sam Weller hud appeared on the theatre bills at every corner of the street, that the name of " Boz" became associated with all that was offensive ia the burlesque and low farce of the American stage. In this feeling I once participated. But a year ago a friend brought Oliver Twist to my room, to help while away a night of illness, lie had not read many pages before my prejudices agsinst the author all gave way ; and after my ri-covery, I was glad to read that charming book by mysef/, where I cauld enjoy the full pleasure of those leuhiigs which the kind hearted writer ao well knows how to excite. On closing the vdork, I felt HU linelUl III IIIU VT UI&MUU1C Iiriv, nmcu IIW UVIItious character ever awakened in my heart. Immediately I collected all the writing! of Dickens, and rrad them with a new and strango delight. There was no gloom which his wit and humor could not drive away; no hilarity w hich I was not glad to exchange for the scene* of suffering, sadness, and triumph, in the histories of the generous but unfortunate Oliver ; the proud spirited, kind hearti d Nicholas: the sonfiding Madeline; the beautiful Katv ; and above all, sweat little Nelly, that child of heaven. 1 promised inysvlf a higher gratification in seeing the author oi these works than lr*m intercourse with any other man. I was expressing to Campbell, whom I met last evening ct Dr. Beattie' admiration for Dickens. He inquired if I had ever seen him. I answered I had not, and that 1 should consider it a misfortune to leave Knglard without seeing him. Immediately Campbell left the room, and returning in a few moments, took my hand and said, " I am glad you like Mr. Dickens. Here is letter of introduction to him. I want you to read it, and then I will seal it, for I const Jar it a mark of ill-breeding to present an nuaealed letter: and the one to be introduced may perhaps feel some desire to glance over it: this he should be permitted to do, and then it should be sealed." Campboll persisted, and 1 read it. It wai warm hearted and generous, like every thing that come* from Thomas Campbell. 1 gave baok the latter with many thanks.? " Oh, don't thank me, air ; of what u*e would it be to live in this world, if we could not gratify our feelings by tnee in a whilt, at Uatl, doing some good to others!" This morning Ioallud on Mr. D.ckens. I felt the same reverence for the historian of little Nelly when I entered hia library, that I ahouldforthe aathor of Waverly at hia grave. Yea, more : for there is more Christian I philanthropy In his heart than ever dwelt in Sir Walter's; and would to Ood there were no worse men than waa Sir Walter. I thought 1 would withhold Campbell's letter until after my reception. I felt asaured that the heart of Charles Dickens had not been so chilled by the cold spirit that reigna in the higher circles of English society, as to prevent him from receiving me with genuine kindness. I sent in my card, after writing on it with a pencil," An American would he greatly obliged if he could see Mr. Dickens." In a moment or two the servant returned, and shewed me to the library. The author was shthig in a large arm chair by hia table, with a sheet of " Master Humphrey's Clock" before him. 11a gave me his band lamiliarly, ana enereu me a cnair. I told him I waa an American,and hoped he would pardon me for calling without an invitatiou, and, if he wai not particularly engaged, I ahould be much gratified with a ahort interview. Ho begged mn to make no apologiei; he waa always glad to aee Americana; they had extended auch a generoua hand to the oppreiaed of England, that they ought to fed no t'elicacy i > introducing themaelvea to Englishmen. I at once felt at home, and remarked that I trusted 1 waa prompted by a better motive than mere curiosity in coming to see him. I wished to see the man who had so faithfully delineated the human heart, and shown to much sympathy for the poor and the suffering ; it was the philonthropiat even more th9n the author 1 was anxious fo see. He replied, nothing oould be more gratifying to him than to receive demonstrations of regard (torn American readers. " American praise," said he," is the best praise in the world, for it is sincere. Very few reviews are written in this ceuntry except under the influence of some personal feeling. Do not understand me to complain of the treatment I have received from the reviewers; they have awarded ma more praise than I deserve/' I expressed a desire to know something of the history of his authorship, at the same time saying that, ol course, I did not expect him to communicate to a stranger anything ha would not frralv make known to the world. "Ob, sir," he replied, "ask ns many questions as you please ; as an American, it is one of your inalienable right to ask questions ; and this, 1 fancy, is the reason why the Yankesa are so intelligent." I enquired if, in portraying his oharacters,he had not, in everv instance, his eye upon some particular person he had known, since I could not conceive it possible for an author to present such graphic and natural pictures except from real life. * Allow me to ask, sir," I said'' if the eue eyed Squeers, coarse hut good John Browdie.the beautiful Sally Brass, slever Dick Swiveller, the demoniac and intriguing Quilp, the good Cheerbly Brothers, the avaricious Kagio, and dear little Nelly, are mere fancies r " No, sir, they are not." replied he; they are copies.? You will not understand me to say, of course, that they are true histories in all respects, hut they are real like neaaea; nor nave I in any 01 my worka attempted anything more than to arrange my atory aa well aa I cotild, and give a true picture of acenea I have witneaaed. My paat hiatory and purauita have led me ta a familiar acquaintance with nnmerona inatancea of extreme w retched nea a and af deep-laid villany. In the haunta of aqalid poverty I have found many a broken heart toogeodfer thia world. Many auch persona, now in the moat abject condition, have aeen better day a. Once they movtd in circles of friendship and afHuenre,from which they have been hutled by mWfortune to the loweat deptha of wantand aorrow. Thia claaa of peraona ia ve 7 large. u Then there are thouaanda in eur pariah workhonaea and ia the lanea of London, born into the world without a friend except Ood and a dying mother. Many, too, who in circumatancea of trial have yielded to impulaea of paaaion, and by one fatal atep fallen beyond recovery. London ia crowded, and, indeed, ao ia all England, with the poor, the unfortunate, and the guilty. Thia description of peraona haa been generally overlooked by ?uthora. They have had none to care for them, and have led from the pahJic gaie to ao me dark habitation of thia great city, to carae the cold charitiea of a aeldah world, and die. There are more broken heaxtain London than in any other place in the world. The amount of crime, atarvation, nakedneaa, and miaery of every aoit in the metropolis aurpaaaa* all calculation. I thought 1 could render oome aervice to humanity by bringing thean acenea before the raindo of thoae who,from never havinr wit a raved them, auppoae they cannot exiat. In thia ef fort I have not been wholly unsuccessful; and there ia nothing makea me happier than to think that, by aome f my representations, I hare increased the itock ol human cheerfulness, and, by othera, the atoek of human sympathy. I think it aaakea the heart better to eeek out the aufferinf and reliere them. I hare apent many day a and aighta in tha moat wretched diatricta of the metropolia, atudying the hiatory of the human heart. There we muat go to find it. In high circles we see everything but the heart, and learn every thing but the real character. We muat go to the hovelaof the poor and the unfortunate, where trial bring* out the character. I hare in theae rambler aenn many exhibitiona of generoua affection and heroio endurance, which would do honor to any inhere. Often here I diacorrred minda that only wanted a little of the sunshine of prosperity to dcrelop the cboiceat endewmenta of Heaven. I think I never return to my kome after these adventure* without being made a sadder and a better man. In describing these charaat' ra I aim no higher then to feel in writing is they seem ad to feelthemaelves. lam persuaded that I have succeeded just in proportion as I hava cultivated a familiarity with the triala and sorrows of the poor, and told their atory as they would hare ralated it themselves."

Itaw several rory-cheeked playing by a water fountain ; and, aa the little creaturea catt occasional g Uncut up to ut while we were watchinar their inorta from the window. I thought. I taw iu their large, clear,blueeyes, goldi n hair, an<Ityewitchlntf tnile, the image of Charles Dickens. They were, ih fact, young Boz/.es !! I % as greatly surprised. for I hail never heard that there was such a lady as Mrs. Hickens. I think Dickens incomparably the finest looking man 1 oversaw. The portrait of him iu the Philadelphia edi tien of his works is a good one ; but no picture can dq juatice to his expression when he la engaged in an interesting conversation. There is something about nis eyes at such times which eannot be copied In perion he is perhaps a little abore the standard height ; but his hearing it noble, and he appears taller than he really ia. His figure is very graceful, neither too alight nor too stout. The face is handsome. His crmplmion is delicate? rather pale generally-, but when his feedings are kindled his countenance is overspread with a rlcn glow. Ipreeameheis somewhat vain of his h'sir, dnd he can be pardoned far it too. It reminded me of wbids in Sidney's Acadia : " His fair auburn hair, which he wore in great length, gave him at that time a most delightfhl how." His forehead, a phrenologist would any (especially if he knew his character beforehand), indicates a clear and beautiful intellect, in wbiah the organs of perception, mirthfulnesa, ideality, and ecmparisop, predominate. 1 should think hi* nose bad once been.almost detei mined to be Roman, hut hesitate I just long enough to settle into the classic Grecian outline. But the oharmof his person is in his full, soft, beaming eyes, which cateh an expression from every passing object ; and youean always see wit, half sleeping' in'am-" bush around them, when it is not shooting its wonted fires. Dickens has almost made us feel that " Wit if ths yupil of he soul's clear eye, ' And in man's world, the only shining star." . And yet I think hit conversation, except in perfeet abandon among his friends, presents but few striking oxhibi'ions of wii. Still there is a rich'vein of humor and good feeling in all he sayl. I passed two hours at his house, and when I left was more impressed than ever with tbegoodness of his heart. I should mention that during my visit 1 handed him Campbell's litter; it produoed not the slightest change in hia manner. I expressed, on leaving, the hopethat little Nelly (in whose fste I confessed I felt a deeper Interest than in that of most real characters) might,'after all her wanderings, find a quiet and happy home. " Thesame hope, he replied, "has been expressed to others: and 1 hardly know what to do. But i> you ever hear of her death in a future number of the Clock, you shall say that she died as she lived." iRMr. Dickens is certainly one of the most lovely men I ever saw; and 1 wish that they wha have formed th'e mistaken idea that hia works are destitute of high moral sentiment, and written merely to amuse the vulgar; would only look into Oliver Twi?t or Nicholas Nicaleby. I wish, too, thatsthey who'refuse to read his worksbecause they are fictitious (for a novel is not necessarily a vicious book?sometimes they are the best booksPilgrim's Progress, Paradise Lost, and the Vicar of W?efield,could be but poorly spared), had as much of the milk of hnman kindness in their hearts as he.. I believe there is no author doing so much for humanity in the Biitish empire. Ner am I alone in this opinion.

J. W Dobbins, eomtable?On motion of T. Mellon, Esq and presentation of tbe proper petition in the Court, hie' Honor, Judge Irwin, granted a writ of habeae cor-, pim, returnable at three o'clock P. M. in Saturday laat. By the return of the habeae corpus, it appeared that the relator, Jonathan Ramaley, was arrested on an execution issued by an Alderman of the city of Pittsburg ; that previously to said arrest, the relator had filed his petition in due form in said Conrt for the benefit of the Bankrupt Law ; that the schedule annexed to said petition contained the naUie and amount of the debt, &c. of the arresting ere^ ditor ; that the said Conrt had made an ordsr, appointing the 12th day of March next, for the hearing of relator and his creditors, and that notice of this order was published according to law. The Conrt decided that the relator, living thus according to law?brought within the jurisdiction of the Court, and being bound at all times to abide ite on ers and decrees in the matter of his petitionhe was entitled to its protection, by being privileged from arrest in the care before them, pendiagthe proceedings in his application for relief under the Bankrupt Law, and it therefore ordered that the. said relator be discharged from his said arrest, add that the arre.-ting creditor pay the cost of the proceedings on the writ of habeas corpus.

We do not know what course the Mayor intends to pursue; but we certain'y think that he should not deliver the prisoners up without a trial under our laws. We have yet to learn that a vessel at anchor at Algiers is Within the limits of New Orleans.
