THE NEW YORK TRADE TYRANT.-A.
T. Stewart, Esq., the great dry goods
n king of New York, has just succeeded
a in crushing his Uniont Square rivals,
n Messrs. Sherwin & Co., who tailed about
* ten days ago for a very large amount.
It is well known of Stewart that he will
never brook opposition or competition.
Si Once having determined to - remove ant
d obstacle its doom may be regarded as
settled. Some years ago he wanted a
store adjoiuing his own that was at the
" time occupied by a carpet dealer doing
Sa prosperouas and flourishing business.
The party in psession laughed at Stow
I art's request for his to abandon it.
Y StewarMt immediately imported carpets
? anmd sold them at prime coat, thus soon
c 'destroying his neighbor's business and
O' forcingbhis into bankruptcy. More re
.t ently a milliner in Broadway oocoupied
a stre on a block Stewart desired to
n- ipurchase and refased to move and give
1 ap her business to suit his convenience:
- He immediately opened the same deo.
't scription of store in an atjoiuinng build
n' ing and soon succeeded iLa dBivtug her
-" t, of the business and into poverty.
vs As soon as MIessrs. Sherwin & Co. open
'e ed their dry goods palace at Union
cr Square, in opposition to Stewart the
latter resorted to his oli tactics, with
what success the recent heavy failure of
g the would be rivals illustrates. All this'
~seems to be considered greatly to Stew
m art's credit by the merea~ntile commani
ty of New York, but we eanneot help
a oiewing it as the worst species of oppwes
saion both unfeeling and contemptible in
Sa man as wealthy and isowerfiul as he is.
It is no compliment toitlher his bend or
Shis heart, that by throwing in the eale,
the weight of his ehtmous enlpital, he
Soccsionally sunceeds in rtinIhg a few
do merchanits and reduotg their families
i to poverty.,.

A curioUs question was ,discussed P t'
a recent meeting: of the British Royal
Geographical Society, Sir lleary IRaw
i- nson expressed the opinion tl:aL the sea
of. Aral--a body of water haring an o
areo, of 13,000 sulnare miles, ot three "a
times tlre size of M.assachusetts--had no m
existence in, the .long period between a
600 years before Chriet and G00 years t
after, and the rivers Oxns aid Jnxartes, a
now flowing into it, both flowi,*g into s
the Caspian sea. lie said: The sea a
came first into notice in the seventh oi
century, and these two are spoken of for w
several hundred years as emptying i.,to it1
it. Anothef change seems to have oc.
