lowing, scr has he wat us an adrertioeznent, that
he iatendf to write fifty-two lectors on Humbugs,
for tb N. V. Mercury ; bat for all that we copy
hia first article, fur eTcral reasons ; anions theo,
because if author ia the Prince of Humbug, and
from the fact that some of the character referred
to Warren, Genie, Goelin are no myth or
bembugt, but were personally known to many
of our readers:
Ancient and .Uodem Humbugs
or the World.
T P. I- BAENITU.
Difinition or the Wokd Humbug : Warres,
or Luxdox Uenln, raz Hatter Gosling's
When I come to sit down f-arae&tly to fu!ll
icy engagement with tLe publisher of the Mer
cury, t write for them a ueries of article upon
the Humbugs of the World," I confess myself
somewhat puzzled in regard to the true definition
of that word. T be e-jre, U'ebster fays that
humbeij, a a noun, is an ' imposition under
fair pretense and a a verb, it is To deceive ;
to impose on." With all due deference to Doc
tor ebster, I submit that, according to present
ueage, this i not the only, nor even the generally-accepted
definition of that term.
We will suppode, for instance, that a man with
' fair preceneea" applies to a wholesale merchant
for credit on a large bill of good. His 44 fair
pretense comprehend an assertion that ho is a
moral and religious man, a member cf the church,
& man of wealth, etc., etc. It turns out that he
- is not worth a dollar, but is a base. Ijing wretch,
an impostor and a cheat. He is arrested and im
prisoned for obtaining property under false
pretenses" or, a Webster pays, fair pretenses."
lie L punished for h'u villainy. The public do
not call him a "humbug:" they very properly
term him a swindler.
A man, bearing the appearance of a gentle
man in dress and manners, purchases property
from you, and with "fair j reten.-e" obtain
your confidence. You find, when he has left,
that he paid you with counterfeit bank-note, cr
a forgeu draft. Thi man i justly called a
forger," or "counterfeiter;" and If arrested,
he ii paniihed as such; but nobody think cf
calling him a humbug."
A respectable-looking man sits by your tide in
an omnibus or railcar. He converses uently,
and is evidently a man of intelligence and read
ing. He attracts your attention by his " fair
pretense." Arriving at your journey end. yuu
miss your watch and your pocket-book. Your
fellow passenger proves to be the thief. Every
body calls Lim a pickpocket," and notwith
standing his " fair pretenses," not a person in
the community calls him a " humbug."
Two actors appear as stars at two rival theaters.
They are equally talented, equally pleasing. One
advertises himself eimply a a tragedian, under
his proper name the other boaeu that he is a
prince, and wears decorations presented bv all
the potentates of the world, including the " King
of the Cannibal Islands." He is correctly set
down as a "humbug," while this term is never
applied ta the other actor. But if the man who
boasts of having received a foreign title is a mis
erable actor, and he gets up gift-enterprises and
begas entertainment, or pretends to devote the
proceeds of his tragic efforts to some charitable
object, without, in fact, doing so he is then a
huubug in the offensive sense of that word, for
he is an " impostor under fair pretenses.
Two physicians reeids in one of our fashion
able avenues. They were both educated in the
best medical college ; each has passed an examin- j
at ion, received his diploma, and been dubbed an
M. D. They are equally ekilled in the healing
art. One rides quietly about the city in his gig
or brougham, visiting his patients without noiee
or clamor the other sallies out in his coach and
lour, preceded by a band of music, and his car
riage and horses are covered with handbills and
placards, announcing nis " wonuertul cures."
This man is properly called a quack and a hum
bug. Why? Not because be cheat or imposes
upon the public, for he does not, but because,
a generally understood, 44 humbug" consists in
putting on glittering appearances outeide chow
noTel expedients, by which to suddenly arrest
public attention, and attract the public eye and
Clergymen, lawyers, or physicians, who should
resort to such metnods of attracting the public,
would not, for obvious reasons, be apt to succeed.
Bankers, insurance-agents, and others, who aspire
to become the custodians of the money of their
fellow-men, would require a different ppecies of
advertising from this ; but there are various
trades and occupations which need only notoriety
to insure success, alwajs provided that when cus
tomers are once attracted, they never fail to get
their money Vworth. An honest man who thus
arrests public attention will be called a 44 hum
bug," but he is not a swindler or an impostor.
If, however, after attracting crowds of customers
by hi unique displays, a man foolishly fails to
give them a full equivalent for their money, they
never patronize him a eccond time, but they very
properly denounce him a a swindler, a cheat,
and " impostor :" they do rut, however, call
him a 44 humbug." Ho fails, not because he
advertises his wares in an outre manner, but
because, after attracting crowds of patrons, he
stupidly and wicked Iv cheated them.
When the great "blacking-maker of London
dispatched his agent to Egypt to write on the
pyramids of Ghiza, in huge letters, 44 Buy War
ren Blacking, 30 Strand, London," he was not
44 cheating' travelers upon the Nile. His black
ing was really a superior article, and well worth
the price charged fir it, but ho was humbug
ging" the public by this queer way of arresting
attention. It turned out just as he anticipated,
that English travelers in that part of Egypt were
indignant at this desecration, and they wrote
back to tho London Times (every Englishman
write or threatens to 44 write to the Times," if
anything goes wrong,) denouncing the 44 Goth"
who had thus dkfigured these ancient pyramids
bv writing on them in monstrous letters : 44 Buy
Warren Blacking, SO Strand, London." The
Tints published these letters, and backed them
up by several of those awfully grand and dicta
torial editorial peculiar to the great 44 Thun
derer,' in which the blacking-maker, 44 Warren,
30 Strand,' was stigmatized as a man who had
no resnect for the ancient patriarchs, and it was
hinted that he would probably not hesitate to
ell his blacking on the sarcophagus of Pharaoh,
or any other" mummy, if he could only make
money by it. If fact, to cap the climax. War
ren was denounced as a " humbug." These in
dignant articles wero copied into all the Provin
cial journale, and very soon, in this manner, the
columns of every ncwapaper in Great Britain
wera teeming with this advice: 44 Try Warren's
Blacking, 30 Strand, London." The curoeity of
the publis was thus aroused, and they did try"
it, and finding it a superior article, they continu
ed to purchase it and recommend it to their
friends, and Warren made a fortune by it. He
always attributed his puccese to his having
44 humbugged" the public by his unique method
of advertising his blacking in Egypt! But
Warren did not cheat his customers, nor practice
44 an imposition under fair pretenses." He was
a charlatan, a humbug, but he was an honest,
upright man, and no one called him an impoator
or a cheat.
When the tickets for Jenny Lind's first con
cert in America were eoid at auction, several
busicess-men, aspiring to notoriety, 44 bid high"
for the first ticket. Ic was finallv knocked down
to 44 Genin, the Hatter," for $225. The journals
in Portland (Maine) and Houston (Texas,) and
all other journal throughout tho United States,
between these two cities, which were connected
with the telegraph, announced the fact in their
colunns the next morning. Probably two mill
ions of readers read the announcement, and
asked, 44 Who i Genin, the Hatter?" Genin
became famous in a day. Every man involun
tarily examined hi hat, to see if it was made by
Genin : and an Iowa editor declared that one of
his neighbors discovered the name of Genin in
his old hat, and immediately announced the fact
to his neighbors in front of the Poet Office. It
was tuczosted that the old hat should be sold at
auction. It was done tuen and there, the Genin
hat sold for fourteen dollars ! Gentlemen from
city and country rushed to Genin's store to buy
their hats, many of them willing to pay even an
extra dollar, it necewary, provided they could
get a glimpse of Genin himself. This singular
treat put thousands of dollars into the pocket of
44 Genin, the Hatter," and yet I never heard it
charged that he made poor hats, or that he would
be guilty of an 4 imposition under fair pre
tenses " On the contrary, he is a gentleman of
probity, and of the first respectability.
When the laying of the Atlantic Telegraph
was nearly comxleted, I was in Liverpool. I
offered the Company one thousand pounds eter
"ng ($5,000) for the privilege of sending the
first twenty words over the cable to my Museum
in Xw York not that there was any intrinsic
merit in the words, but that I fancied there was
more than 5.000 worth of notoriety in the
operation. But Queen Victoria and 44 Old Buck"
were ahead of me, their messages had the pre
ference, and 1 was compelled to 44 take a back
By thus illustrating what I believo the public
will concede to be the sense in which the word
44 humbug" is generally used and understood at
the present time, in this country as well as in
England, I do not propoee that my letters on this
subject shall bo narrowed down to that definition
of the word. On the contrary. 1 expect to treat
of various fallacies, delusions, and aeceptions in
ancient and modern times, which, according to
Webster's definition, may be called 44 humbug:?."
inasmuch as they were 44 impositions under fair
In writing of modern humbugs, however, I
shall sometimes have occasion to give the names
of honest and rspectable p-arties now living, and
I felt it but just that the public should fully
comprehend my doctrine, that a man m:iy, by
common usage, be termed a humbug," without
by any means impeaching his integrity.
Speaking of 44 Hacking-makers" reminds ejc
tbui one of the first senationalitj in advertising
wLom I remember to have seen, was Mr. Leonard
Gosling, known as 44 Monsieur Gosling, the great
French Blacking-maker." He appeared in New
York in 1520. He S.shed like a metee-r across
the horizjn ; and before he had been in the city
three liiuiiths, nearly everybody had heard of
44 Gosling's Blacking." I "well remember his
magnmcent iur in nana. . spienaia teani j

Line r.!rV till arv.l man- '
aged with such dexterity by Gosling himself, who j
was a great 44 whip," that they almost sveuied to '
Sy. 1 ne carriage was emolazoued with the words
"Gosling's Blacking," in large gold letters, and
the whole turnout was so elaborately ornamented
and bedizzened that everybody stopped and gazed
with wondering admiration. A bugle-player or
a band of music always accompanied the great
Gjsling, and, of course, helped to attract the
public" attention to his establishment. At the
turning of tverv street-corner ycur eyes rested
upon 4 Gosling's Blacking." from every show
window gilded placards discoursed eloquently cf
the merits of 44 Gosling Blacking." The news
papers teemed with poems written in it praise,
and showers of pictorial handbills, illustrated
almanacs, and tinseled souvenirs, all lauding the
virtues of 44 Gosling's Blacking," smothered you
at every point.
The celebrate! originator of nfgro delinea
tions. 44 Jim Crow Rice," made his first appear
ance at Hambiin's Bowery Theater at about this
time. Tho crowds which thronged there were
so great that hundreds from the audience were
frequently admitted upon the ttage. In one of
his scenes, Kice introduced a negro boot-blacking
establishment. Gosling was too wide awake
to let euch an opportunity pass unimproved, and
Rice was .aid lor singing an original black
Gooling ditty, while a score of placards bearing
the inscription, 44 Use Gosling's Blacking," were
suspended at different points in this negro boot-
Bjlinhing hall. Everybody tried 4 Gosling's
lacking ;" and as it was a really good article,
his sales in city and country soon became im
mense. Gosling made a fortune in seven years,
and retired ; but, like thousands before him, it
was 44 easy come easy go." He engaged in a
lead-mining speculation, and it was generally
understood that his fortune was, in a great
measure; lost as rapidly as it was made.
Here let me digress, in order to observe that
one of the moat difficult things is for men to
bear discreetly sudden prosperity. Unless con
siderable time and labor are devoted to earning
money, it is not appreciated by its possessor ;
and, having no practical knowledge of the value
of mnnpT. hf fnpra'lir trvta rlrl nf It vcltU Ko

same case that marked its accumulation. Mr.
Astor eave the experience of thousands when he
said that he found more difficulty in earning and
saving his first thousand dollars than in accumu
lating all the subsequent millions which finally
made up his fortune. The very economy, perse
verance, and discipline which he was obliged to
practice, as he gained his money, dollar by dol
lar, gave him a just appreciation of its value,
and thus led him into those habits of industry,
prudence, temperance, and untiring diligence so
conducive and necessary to his future success.
Mr. Gosling, however, was not a man to be
put down by a single financial reverse. He
came again to New York in 1839, and established
a restaurant, where, by devoting the services of
himself and several members of his family assid
uously to the business he eoon reveled in his
former prorrity, and snapped his fingers in
glee at what unreflecting i-ersohe term 44 the
freaks of Dame Fortune." He is still livins in
luit, aim iicany at me ago oi seventy.
Although called a 44 French" blacking-maker, he
ism reality a Dutchman, having been born in the
city of Amsterdam, Holland. He is the father
of twenty-four children, twelve of whom are
still living, to cheer him in his declining years,
and to rep-ay him in grateful attentions for the
valuable lessons of prudence, integrity, and in
dustry through the adoption of which they are
honored as respectable and worthy members of
society. Aor For Mercury.
