A Moos. SnoP.--"Stewat's" establishment hi
in Broadway, N. York, is thus described by the t
New York Post:
This splendid establishment is one of the most
attractive and imposing dtrctures the city of
New York. It is situated on "the ether side" -
Broadway, five stories high, with a chaste
loering reot of white marble. The interior. u
which consists of five stories, decorated in the
beautiful style of art; the first floor, or a
retail department, being devoted to the sale ofi
.silks, cashmeres, shawls, delaines, lace, hosiery
merinos, and mourning goods ; there are three.
upper stories, it which the wholesale business
of the establishment is carriesdo-these are1
reached by a broad flight of stairs, the entrance
to which is on the south wing ofthe building.-
The basement is reserved as a depot ltr the
sale of carpets, and upholstery goods. The en
tire cot of the edifice is estimated at a little
within $300,000 ; and the contemplated addi.
tios, which will be speedily commenced, will
tetend the range of building from Reads street
to Chambers, will probably cost about 200,
The proprietor of this immense establishment'
is a wonderful man, a striking example of what
can be accomplished by well directed and un.
remitted energy and adherence to order and
system. Twenty years since he laid the foam
dation of his lusiness commencing with com.
paratively limited capital, )et by judicious use
of his resources, e is at the present timsb it is
believed possessed ofa fortune of between two'
and three millious of dollars. It is understood
to be his boast, that dring the whole progres
of his mercantile operations, be never solicited'
or availed himself of an endorser for his notes.
He is devoted to his business, and retains the
a methodical habits which chracterise his early
Scareer, his usual attsdance at the stare being
from eight in the morning till nine o'clock in
the evening, and sometimeQ even later. He

*'Abdel Medschid, the present Sultan, is 16 o
years of age; dresses, with the exception of a
Fes cap, in the European style ; pd, save that
his face is unusually pale and deIly pitted by t
the small pox, has nothing very noticeable in his
personal appearance. He inherits little of the
intellectual vigor of his father Mahmoud, bet his
heart is amiable to a degree bordering on weak.
ness. His sensibilities are such that he never
signs death warrants except in cases ofthe moast
urgent necessity. He takes scarcely any per.
eoed part in the administration of the govern
ment, choosing to leave every thing to the co- F
trmlof his Visier and Divan. Hehas'five or ix
wives and a large Harem. The latter is reg.
ularly increased by the annual presentationa
two beautifl and accomplisbed Circassian vir.
gins, one by his mother, the Sultana Valede, the a
other by the Grand Vizier. .
The old custom of sacking the unfaithful and
throwing them into the Bosphorus, has become
totally obsolete; but it is generally supposed t
that state policy still makes way with some at
least of the Sultan's male ospring, for the num.
ber of his sons is always very disproportiouate
to that of has daughters. The Sultan is not on
ly ;extremely effeminate and licentious, but he
very frequently indulges in the ue of spirituous
liquors, and it is by no means improbable that
he will meet the fteof his fther, who died in
the prime of his life of ddriwm rmeeu .
Abdel Medacid has dispensed with much
the gittering pomp that used to attend the 8l.
