TH Vol. IX.?No. 15.?Whole No. To the Public. In congratulating our reader*, patron*, advertisers and the public in general, on the gloriou* advent of the birth day of our Lord and Savior, we sincerely assure them ot the feelings of gratitude that we leel for the unexampled support and patronage extended towards the Herald, not only during the last year, but ever since its establishment in May, 1836. In the space of time that has elapsed since the organization of this establishment, no newspaper ever passed through such a fiery trial of attacks, abuse, libels, and atrocious calumnies, as we have experienced. Yet in the midst of such misrepresentation, we have prospered to our heart's content, and overcome every obstacle made to our ?- progress. We have at this moment, the largeit, the best, aii d the most respectable circulation of any newspaper in New York?and our advertising patronage is so great, that we have' difficulty to find room for the favors of our generous patrons. In proof oi this we annex the following documents, which speak to the mind at once New You* Herald ) Sun Office, N. Y.,) J Office, Nov. 1, 1812. J Aug. 29, 1842. ) Messrs. Persse A Brooe* : Mr. H. V.

PERSSE A BROOKS, PUnf INo. 61 Liberty street, James Rowe, e Samuel Beman, \ Witnesses. It has been well known that the Sun newspaper, in consequence of its cheapness, had for several years the largest circulation in New York. This circulation, from obvious causes, has diminished very much of late, and is now ^ hardly half of what it has been in former years. As a natural consequence, its advertising patronage has diminished in a like ratio, as may be seen by looking at its columns. The evidence of the decline in its circulation is exhibited in the contract with Mr. Butler, published by Mr. Beach himselt, as contrasted with our contract made withPerise A Brooks. Now, Mr. Butler, like Persse A Brooks, is a highly respectable man, and a good paper manufacturer? although the paper he furnishes to the Sun is of a cheaper, and ol course a worse quality than what we have invariably used for the Heiald. It is evident from these contracts, that we consume about one-third more paper per week than Mr. Beach of the Sun, and accordingly our circulation is, in the same ratio, more extensive. The nature of this circulation is also different. The Bun circulates among the poor principally?but ours among the higher and more educated clas ses?particu larlv the clerical, financial, literary, and commercial. Our advert!ting patronage hat alto increased much?at it mutt naturally do among a buiineaa and intelligent people, capable of teeing their beit and truest interests. By inspecting the Sun, it will be seen that whole columns consist of old advertisements, stuck in to fill np space? while other columns contain silly love stories, instead ot the important news of the day, which they seldom publish till the day after. These are the facts ?but we do not blame Mr. B each fo this decay. Necessity compels him?and necessity has no law. He has neglected his newspajier entirely for the last two years?and has turned his attention, probably to what he thought abetter business. His place has been changed into a broker's office, for shaving Jacksonville notes, Ulster notes, and Malone notes, all known under t the name of" Beach leaves." He has also united with the business of a " money changer," that of a small shop for the sale of the cheap literature of the day. Probably he 1 has run into these two kinds of business in anticipation oi the setting of the Sun, which has suif'ered awfully of late from the combined energy of the other penny and two-penny press, in collecting early news. These facts present the true state of the case to the public. There can be no mistake in the documents ot Mr. Butler and Messrs. Pertse fc Brooks?and henceforth the public will know the cause why the Herald has become the principal organ for the cash business advertising in New York We leave all the credit business to the Wall street press. For the favors we have received we return our thanks, and hope by our industry and independence to merit a continuance hereafter of the like kindnesses, always with the cash in advance.

East evening another attempt was made to renovate ihe exhausted condition of the treasury of the National Charter Association, the "Victim Fund,' bring no longer able to victimise the industrious laboring population ot the metropolis, by the exhibition ot Miss Mary Ann Walker, in the capacity ol public lecturer on Chartism. The lecture was announced to take place in (lit hallo! i lie National (Sturgeite !) Association, it High flolborn, at eight o'clock precisely, at the small charge ot three pence to the pit, and, coutrarj to usual practic , sixpence to the gallery. The ex hibition was what is technic illy termed a lut, lot although the upper regions were very thinly attend ed, the pit presented a goodly show, curiosity rathei than sympathy lor the cause espoused being evident ly the attraction. After tremendous uproar, Miss Mary Ann Walkei made her appearance accompanied by Miss Emma Matilda Miles, Miss Clara Cleopatra Susannah Inge, and one or two others of the she-Chartists, abou hall-past eight o'clock, and Mr. Wji, Balls was called to the chair. He oh served lie felt deeply honored at being culled on ti preside on such an occasion?an interesting occa sion he would say, for it was to hear the glorioui fundamental principles of the people's Charter ad vocated and explained by one of the suiter and bet ter sex (cheers and laughter.) Much praise wni due to Mi>* Walker and Miss Inge tor coming lor ward maul ally in the cause of liberty (hear, cheers and astonishment.) He begged to assure the as sembl v this was her first exhibition in public, ant therefore he thought she was entitled to a very grea deal of indulgence. The Chairman concluded b) introducing MissMauv Ann Walker ?The young lady bow ed very gracefully to the loud applause which greet ed bar, hut exhibited at the same time that "shrew ish" disposition which distinguished itself through out her discourse towards the direction from whicl some few hisses emanated. The noise having sub sided, she commenced by saying she felt it was i bold thing in her to step out of what was called i "woman's domestic duties," but if any one presen dared foquestiou her right she wouia answer tha nothing but her country's wrongs could have in duced her to have stepped into the arena ot politics strife and become a public woman?(cries of "bra vn" from the men, and clapping of hands from tin "ladies.") If there was any one present hold enougl to enquire why she left her proper province, Hh< woujd answer?in obedience to her country's rail? (derisive laughter from the galleries, vnoiterou cheers from the pit, and waving of handkerchiefs 01 the platform for some minutes) She would con tend that woman had an equal right with man t raise her voice when half the people were sturvins and women were compiled to make shirts at a pen ny each, or 6d per day, and all on account of th cursed black pension list. Miss Walker here in dulged the company with reading an account of th sums awarded to royalty, and having adverted t the amount expended yearly for wine and spirits, e* pressed no surprise that the Prince of Wale's nurs got drunk (roars of laughter and signs of diaapprc bation.) A gentleman in the gallery suggested that Mis Walker should keep to the question of the Chartei and not abuse the aristocracy. Miss Walker, casting at him a withering look.ac eompanied by Chartist vociferations of "Turn bin out I" "Pitch him over!" declared she woult meet him after the lecture was concluded. The Chairman said, it he heard any more of thosi foolish interruptionshe should have the disturber un Ceremoniously kicked out : that was the late uei-son who attempt to interrupt Chartist lecturers may ex l>eet to meet Captain Atcherley?Yes, pitch hiin out; and I'n the boy that'll do it. Miss Mary Ann Walker then proceeded, andenu merated the various points of the People's Charier which she declared to be the panacea for every thing. Was it not monstrous that even the soldier and sailors, who were the producers of all the wealtl of the country (!) had no vote at all 7 She deelaret universal suffrage to be no good without the ballot for there were many manufactories which employ ed 71(0,000 or M|K),(WK) workmen (loud cries of "Wal ker")? and if they had not the ballot the niaste could do with them as he liked ; and for them t< have a system which would permit bribery would b< lost like her (Miss Walker) going to market ant buying " a pig in a poke" (roars of laughter ) Mi? Walker was quite shocked at the conduct of the ina gisirate in committing a girl to jail because she re I used to go through the men's bed-rooms. Tht Bench came equally under the lash. i?he deelurei the Whigs and Tories crucified the |ieople, and de nounced the press for calling her and her female col leagues " hen Chartists." She concluded by de daring that she was ready to answer any gentlemai quest ions he might put to her, as well as those of tht soul-inspiring association to which she had the lion or of belonging. Miss Walker made 1 curtesy caused the majer part ot a glass of something to dis a pear, and sat down. M'. Tootkk (a gentleman in the body of the meet ing) put several questions to Miss Walker, whicl *ere answered principally by Captain Atcherly, ant gave very little satisfaction either to the questione or the meeting. Miss Miles moved a vote of thanks to Miss Mar; Ann Walker, which was not seconded, and ver; feebly responded to, and the meeting separated il great disorder. Court of Bankruptcy. Satcroay, Dec. 3. Before. Mr .

Thiawa the first of a series of meetings appointed to invest gate the several transactions connected with hil which had passed from his lordship into second an third parties' hands, and for which he alleged he r* oeived little or iio consideration. Lord Hnntingtower came up in custody o| the o ficersof the Queen's Bench, where he is at preser incarcernted at thesuii of several bill creditors ] is expected that he will shortly be released, stej>shax ing already been taken on the part of some of in detaining creditors to arrange for proof under hisei tate, rather than keep him longer in confinemeni (lis debts and liabilities are stated to be about 225 001 If., and there will be scarcely a shilling for the ere ditom. Mr. Angel, of the firm of Angel and Caoper, o Chancery Lane, was the partv whose examinatio: occupied the court the whole day. He was protect ed bv Mr James. Counsel also appeared for Lon Hnntingtower. Mr. Nias, attorney to the estate, conducted thepx amination. Mr Angel said the first transaction he had will Lord Hnntingtower was in June, l&fl; he was in 'rodneed by Captain Byng for business purposes, hi: Icrdship at that time wanting to raise money.

The transactionswt had with his lordship were entered in our cash book which can and shall be produced. To the best ol rm recollection I received two hills ol exchange in ad ditjon to the 1000/. worth of bills before mentioned I wish to say that these bills were our own transactions with his lordship.

I wish to explain that the bill ol ?1,(00 forms part of tiie warrant of attorney taken from Ins lordship at the time a settlement ol accounts took place between us, and when Mr Itowen attended as his lordship's solicitor. I wish also to add that we took a bond of indemnt'y from Lord Huntingtower to hold us harmleas for putting our names to the bills lor lua lordship's accommodation, and in contemplation of becoming liable as drawers (if bills ol exchange not to exceed <?5,000. That bond of indemnity is in the hands of Mr. Moss IERA 1843. Davis.

Have you obtained from hin lordship any other bond or warrant o| attorney than those already mentioned 1 Yes: in addition to the warrant of attorney, bearing date December 13, 1811, filed in , the Court of Queen's Bench, with a defeasance to l?ay ?1,712 12s. 2d., we bad previously obtained a mortgage from his lordship lor 3,tttH, and an agreej inent to assign the money that was paid into the Court of Queen's Bench, amounting to about ?2,htm That agreement was tendered by me t? Lord lluntingtower upon his pledge to return the same to me I in a quarter of an hour. His lordshtn did not re't turn that agreement, but 1 am almost sure tore bis ' name from it. At all events we could not obtain ' possession of that agreement, and, on the intercession of Mr. Mows Davis, who was in the same house, we consented to take an agreement to assign onethird of the money in court, Mr. Moss Davis taking two-rhirtfs of such funds upon a fresh grant drawn by Mr Alexander. I took no other deed except the deed signed by Mr. Moss Davis in pursuance of 1 (tie agreement made. ! Have you not obtained trom his lordship asmiinv as three other warrants of attorney 1 I do not think for a moment that we have. I cannot recollect any other. II we had thrv were included in the last ' warrant of attorney alluded to, attested by Mr. Bowen, which includes all we claim for against his lordship Mr Niaa then pursued a course of examination to show the foundation of this warrant of attorney, | which lie contended was obtained from the bank rupt when under the influence of fear of arrest on the charge of obtaining money under false pre} tences, which he asserted Messrs Angel and Cooper . proposed to prefer against him in consequence <>l alleged false representations regarding his propertics, on which they say they made their advances to him. It was at the residence of the Countess Dysart that this warrant of attorney was signed hy his lordship, who, though not advised to do it, but to take the consequences of any supposed delui' quency, wassoalarmed at the idea of being taken before a magistrate on such a charge, that he refused to take the advice of his solicitor. Of this course of examination a point of law was * raised whether the Court had the power to examine a witness on such a question as the creation of his warrant of attorney when he did not appear as a creditor to prove against the bankrupt's property. The Court took time to consider the doubt raised, and therefore further proceedings are for the present e adjourned. Court of Rxcliequcr. Saturday, Dec. If.

AMPUTATION WITHOUT THE KNOW!.EOT . ui- fUK PATIENT The follow,ug "account oi ise of successful amputation of the thigh during t.u uerio state without the know ledge of the paticn was rv.ul to i l/D. Pile* Two Cents* lilt- Royal Medical and Clnrurgical Society of Imndou on Tuesday last;? "James Wornhell, aged 12, a laboring ntan, of a calm and quiet temperament, had guttered for a period ol about five yeaiN from a patnlul affection of the lelt knee. On the 21st day of June last, he was admitted into the district hospital at Wellow, near Oll-rton, Notts, no longer able to work, and suffering much pain. It was soon tound that amputation ol the leg, above the knee joint, was inevitable; and it was eventually proposed that it should be performed if possible during mesmeric sleep. "I saw Wombell, for the Hr"i time, on the 9th of September- He was sitting upright upon a bed in the hospital; the only position which he could hear lie complained of great pain from his knee, and ot much excitability and loss of strength.from his constant restlessness and deprivation of sleep; lor he had not, during the three previous weeks, slept more than 2 hours in 70. " In the tirst attempt to mesmerise him, which occupied me 96 minutes, the only effect produced was a closing of the eyelids, with that quivering appear ance peculiar to mesmeric sleep; and, though awake and speaking, he could not raise them, until after the lapse of a minute and a half. " My attempt, th<- next duy, was more successful, and in 211 minutes he was asleep. I continued to mesmerise htm every day, excei t the 18th, until the 24th of September ; his susceptibility srariiiMllv in creasing, so that, on the 2!ld, th'- sleep was produced in four minutes and it half The duration ot this sleep varied ; continuing, generally, lor halt an hour, sometimes for an hour, und occasionally lor an hour and a Imlf; but, with two exceotions (attempt* to convene with him), I invariably found him awakened, though without tiring startled, by the violent pain from his knee, which suddenly recurred at uncertain intervals. " The third time I saw him he wassnfli ring great agony. and distressed even to tears. I commenced by making passes, longitudinally, over the diseased knee ; in five minutes lie felt comparatively rasv ; and on proceeding further to mesmerue him, at the expiration of ten minutes he was sleeping like an iutant- Not only his arms were then violently pinched, but also the diseased leg itself, without his exhibiting any sensation ; yet this limb was so sensitive to pain m Ins natural state, he could not bear even the lightest covering to res' upon it. That night he slept seven hours without interruption. " After constantly mesmerising him for 10 or 12 tla^s, a great change was observed in his appearance. The hue of health returned ; he became cheerful; felt much stronger; was ea-ier, both in mind and body ; slept well, nud recovered his appetite. " (>n the 22d September he was first apprised ot the necessity ot an early amputation The com municationseemed almost unexpected, and affected him considerably. I, this day, tried the experiment ol mestiierising hiin against his will; proceeding liv contact with the hands, charging him particularly to exert bis mind to prevent my affecting him. During the process he occasionally glanced at those near htm, moving his eyes as lie felt inclined, and in 12 minutes and n half passed into mesmeric sleep.? The two or three previous days it had been effected in six minutes. He informed me, subsequently, lie had repeatedly called to mind the intelligence just received, and the torture which he must endure ; but lie soon found the influence irresistible, antl presently lost all consciousness. The anticipated loss of his limb, however, that night destroyed his na tural sleep. Next day, though found still fretting, restless, and in consequent pain, lie was yet, by my touch, asleep in four minu.es and a half. "I was then absent, and did not see Wombell tintiithe28tli. He was looking healthy and cheerful; his natural sleep was sound and regular, and his pain soothed and diminished. I was now convinced that the operation might be safely attempted during mestnetic sleep, and with the man's firm consent, it was fixed for the Saturday following. "On the morning of Saturday, the 1st of October, I again mesmerised Wombell, having done so the two previous days. This was done in the presence, of Mr. Wm. Squire Ward, of Wellow (the operator), and two other surgeons; in order that the previous mesmerism might tend, as I believed it would, to render his sleep deeper when again mesmerised for the operation; and also to satisfy them of the state in which he would be, when that time arrived. "He slept an hour; and was aroused by an attempt to converse with him. 1 then showed them my power of affecting any one ot his lunbs, even when tie was quite awake. At my request, he extended his arms, alternately. By making two or three passes over each, without any contact, I so transfixed them, that, from the shoulders to the tips of the lingers, they became as rigid and unyielding as bars ol iron, not to be unbent except by mechanical force, powerful enough to injure the limbs; and yet, instantly relaxing throughout and dropping to his side, from the effect ot my breath alone. His right leg was affected in the same degree; and relief from immediate pain was frequently afiorded, by making similar passes over the diseased one. Though the sensibility of pain was diminished in the limbs than affected whilst awake, it was only during mesmeric sleep I found it totally gone. " A' half-past one o'clock we proceeded to Wombell's room to make the necessary arrangements. From the suffering inflicted by the slightest movement, it was found impossible, without needless torture, to place him upon a table. The low bed, on which lie then lay, was therefore lilted upon a temporary platform. Ten nunutes after being mesmerised, he was drawn, by means of the henclothes beneath him, towards the end of the bed. The movement, however, excited that pain which had so often aroused him before ; and now it did so again. There was something quite excrucia'ing in the suffering winch the state of the knee produced ; for I had seen him, whilst in mesmeric sleep, pricked to some little depth, in other parts of the diseased limb, without being disturbed or conscious ol it. To preclude the necessity of any further movement, his leg was now placed in the moat convenient position which he could bear. Shortly afterwards he declared that the jiain had ceased ; and I again mesmerised hirn in four minutes. In a quarter of an hour I informed Mr Ward that he. might commence the o|>eration. I then brought t wo fingers of each hand gently in contact with WomhellTs closed eyelids, and there kept them ctill further to deepen the sleep Mr Ward, after one earnest look at the man, slowly plunged hia knife into the c entre ot the outer side of the thigh, directly to the hone, and then made a clear incision round the hone, to the opposite point, on the inside, of the thigh. The stillness at this moment was something awtul. The calm respiration o! the. sleeping man alone was heart!; for all other seemed suspended. In making the second incision the jsisition of the leg was found more inconvenient than it had appeared to be, and the n|>erstor could not proceed with hisformer facility. .Soon after the second incision, moaning was heard from the patient, which continued, at intervals, until the conclusion. It gave me the idea of a troubled dream ; for his sleep continued as profound as' ever The placid look ot his countenance never changed tor an in-tant; his whole frame rested, uncontrolled, in perfect stillness and repose; not a muscle or nerve was seen to twitch. To the end of the operation, including the sawing of the hone, securing the arteries, and applying the bandages?occupying a period of upwards ol 20 minutes?he lay like a statue Soon alter the limb was removed, his pulse becoming low Irotti the low* of blood, some brandy and water was poured into his throat, which he swallowed unconsciously. As the last bandage was applied, I pointed out to one of the surgeons, and another gentleman present, that peciiharqaivering of the closed eyelids already alluded to Finally, when all was completed, and Wombell was about to be removed, his pulse being still found very low, some sal volatile and water was administered to him: it proved too strong and pungent, and he gradually and calmly awoke. ' At firHt he uttered no exclamation ; and for some moments seemvd lost and bewildered ; but, after looking around, he exclaimed, ' I bless the Lord to find it's all over.' He was then retnovd to another room ; and, following immediately, I asked him. in the presence of those assembled, to describe all he felt or knew after lie was m> aiu'rised. His replv was, ' I never knew anything more : and never felt anv pain at all ; I, once, felt u if I beard a kind of crunching.* I a "keif ifth.it were painful ' He replied, ' No pain at all 1 I nevt r had any ; and knew nothing till I was awakened bv fiat strong stuff (the mirahtilt.) The crunching.' no doubt, was the sawing his own thighbone fie was lelt easy uid coo for ..!>]e ; and s .11 found so at mac o'clock diet night : about which hour I again mesmerised him (in a minute d t?.ree quar it*,) and he slept an hour ?nd a h t'f f > 'urther :i id that, on the Monday following. tb< fir.-' droning of hi-wound was in luesiuerii sle.Ot tin.-dressing, usually accomi.inied by much .-orenes* iud smarting, he felt nothing; lept longafter jt w i- c iupbt' d; was ignorant ol Mr Ward's intention ; and. nf er awakening, remained unconscious of it a having b en done.
