He is a scion, in the direct male line, of the House of BIrazanza, the female line of which is ruling over Portugal. THE MERCHANT PRINCE. The commercial world was shocked Mon day afternoon by the announcement that Alexander T. Stewart had died in his mar ble palace on Fifth avenue,' at twenty min utes to 2 o'clock. Only a few were aware that the merchant prince was, seriously ill, and therefore the mass were unprepared to hear of his demise. The name of Stewart has been closely identified with the growth of modern New York. He was lucky in his business ,transactions, and his activity in creased with the increase of fortune. He kept his millions in circulation to the benefit of the community. He was a great trader, and he made the most of every opportunity. He was too cold and well poised to be moved by sentiment. Hie cared not who suffered so that he won. He never stopped to in quire what hearts would ache should he crush those who stood in his way. Asking no mercy, he extended none. He central ized business, and served the purchasing community in a way which gave no cause for complaint. Thqse who entered his stores were not importuned to buy, and but one price was asked of all. He was a rigid dis ciplinarian, and those in his employ had to strictly conform to certain rules. With the money which the people of New York and America paid to him over the counters of his stores, he sought to beautify the city and promote manufactures. He kept mill wheels in motion and gave employment to thousands. He added to the comfort and pleasure of the people through the erection and management of palaces in which every shopping want could be supplied; of hotels which are the admiration of the world, and of theatres whose boards have been trodden by some of the geatest actors. He also turned a desolate waste into a Garden City, and built a railroad that access to it might be easy and inexpensive. Of course he looked for profit in all that he did; still he aimed to supply the wants of the public in a better and cheaper manner than any one else could do it. He was a monopolist, but did not abuse his privileges. He rarely hes itated to push his business rivals to the wall; and he sought to serve. instead of oppress the public whicb dealt with him. He was a hard worker and a frugal liver, lie loved to entertain his friends, but Indulged in no excesses himself. He kept his brain clear, and braced. his constiution for the severe triala which he daily eucouutered, by guard ing well his appetite. His operations were gigantic, but they were all shaped by the well-defined laws of trade. He was not a rash speculator, defying prudence and over reaching himself in spasmodic efforts to be come rich. The times u'ndoubtedly favored him; his commercial transactions were car ried on in the period which marks the greatest development America has ever, or possibly ever will, know in the same num ber of years; still it must be admitted that. it required a keen intellect and remarkable industry to expand five thousand dollars in to fifty millions. Mr. Stewart was a man among ten thousand. He was the king of merchants. We doubt if the next century produces another like him. Although he toiled from youth to old age like a slave and amassed a gigantic fortune, he was as poor as any beggar who walks the street when the hand of death was laid upon him. When the summons came he had to go and leave the millions so patiently gathered to be scattered, possibly, by unknown hands. He died in a palace, but the worm will feed as greedily upon his cheek as it does upon that of the miserable wretch who was carried from the Morgue to a pauper's grave. Mr. Stewart was aged 73 when he died. lie had lived the allotted span, and should have been content to go. It is gratifying to. learn that he provided for the carrying on of his great commercial business. It would have been unfortunate to have broken up well established lines of communication and to have thrown thousands out of employ ment at a moment's warning.--f'ur f Field and Farm.
