In this immediate vicinity, we have had
but little to complain of. In a location
like ours, high and dry, and far above
the reach of the sickening miasma which
rises from the ponds and sloughs of the
bottoms, we could not, in reason, ex-

-I True Pic t tm: A young man
who formerly lived in Now York,
and who by some good fortune or
other, during a short residence in Eu
rope, had collected together a large
sum of money, on his return to that
city thus desciibes what he calls
codfish aristocracy' of Gotham:
4,A source of great amusement to
me, on mv return from Kurope to
New York, was the discovery of so
many new senses, when I discovered
so many wealthy men who compose
the codfish aristocracy of New York,
extending their hands to me, and ex
pressing their great delight at seeing
me again, although before I left New
York, those same nabobs would have
looked down upon me with disdain it
I had presumed to have spoken to
them. I rea'ly forgot, till they forc
ed the truth upon my mind, that,
since I left them, I had accumulated
a few more dirty dollars, and that
now, therefore, we weie upon equal
graund! I5ah! the thought of mon
ey being the standard of merit makes
nie sick, and the fawning, canting ob
sequiousness which I witnessed Irom
many during my Hying visit to Ame
rica, made me despise the sycophants,
and almost wish l was not worth a
shilling in the world! On the other
hand I met some good honest friends
in humble circumstances, who almost
approached nie with awe and then
I felt ashamed of human nature.
What a miserable, pitiful, and dis
graceful state of society it is, which
