TECE' MEMPHIS STJlT3pA.X. APPEA.L---FEB-BTJ.Il"S" 33, 1B74.
TnE.ItOTIISCHIIiD5. There is a romance clustering round the name of Kothschild which makes the death of one of the family a matter of more than common interest. Be fnrfv.ind llftv years, aco, there was an humble house on the- Ghetto of Frankfort, whose wiuuows were always seen on one particular night within the annual cicle to weara glitter of light, ivhinh. .is it wiis ttist fromlthe old Jew ish lamps, throw a ghastly, glimmer, on tne uecayeu auu uuaiTjaieu myeumgs nrnund it On this Aichf, the eve of thfi Jewish New Years the five members of the house of Hothscuiia the sons of Frankfort, Vienna, Paris, and Naples came, no matter from what ends of the earth, to gather with filial devotion round a weird, withered, oldlady, who still clung to the oldNl8pot jfrora ""which the family haft started; afTbo tfbuse, we. believe, stands, but the stairs are silent. The mother is, of course, dead. The five eons have departed. The death of the last, Baron James, some few years slice, excited great regret iu Pari?, where his Oriental splendor of livingjand sump tuousuess of hospitality made him a fea ture of its life. In monetary genius, and iu elevation of character and mind, he was the star of the house of Rothschild. Indeed, his courtly bearing and polish ed cultivation qLmind made his rela tions with the leading sovereigns f Eu rope wear more the character of a di plomatist than of a financier. The eld-. er branch hasifallen. And now death has begun to'knock at the door of the younger branches. Some years since, , prior to his father's death, the eldest son of Baron James, who will be re membered in social circles as a visitor for some time iu New York about fifteen years ago, died, having merely passed into manhood. And the other day was published the news of the death of Ba ron Meyer de Bothschild, a member of the house of the London Rothschilds. Meyer was the second son of Nathan the founder of the London house, a man of remarkable craft, energy, and inten sity of purpose. During Napoleon's blockade, while carrying on business at Manchester, he amassed an enormous fortune through smuggled trade. He knew of the victory of" Waterloo some hours before it reached the British gov ernment. What gold may not- have arisen at theftonch of this enchanted wand! There were no wires in those days to carry a breathing from Brussels l to .Exchange, rue energetic enterprise of Nathan in this instance created the greatness of the London house, as ' did John Walter's create that of the London 7mrs. There is no question that, with the death of Baron James, the genius of the house of Bothschild has departed. Constant intermarriage with cousins, and the absence "of that intellectual vig or which the infusion of fresh, new blood imparts, has its effect on men as on animals, and the younger branches of the family are far inferior to the elder. They are pru dent a rose-colored phrase for mean and like old Isaac of York, can higgle for a price; but the money genius, the insight to the financial future, and the boldnsss to back that insight "which be longed to the elder, is nowhere to be found among the junior members of the house; and the same spirit permeates their representatives in New York, New Orleans, San Francisco, and all over the European continent. In 1847, the period of the Irish famine, though the corn bills of both continents passed through their hands, giving them ample opportunities for preparation, they weia unable to breast the finanicial storm, but flew before it, selling all their secu rities, and causing the great fall in con sols of that year. Their transactions, too, are of an inferior character. Ex cept with Austria, they are not, as in the days of bid "Nathan and his sons, the props of thrones. Most of the great government transactions of the country which offer the vastest field for the fu ture, have been conducted, of Jate years through the house of Baring Brothers, of London, and Corcoran & Biggs, of Washington. Meyer Bothschild, just dead, always contented himself with holding a second position to his brother Lionel, both" in DU3iness and society, and never camo to the foreground. He generally confined himself to the office of the firm, in New Court,and governed from the desk. He resided with his brothers in Piccadilly, close to Apsley house, the town palace of ''the duke," where their ordinary life, like those of all wealthy Jews, was surrounded with every appliance of luxury and where they entertained always with a grace ful, often with a splendid, hospitality. The turf and field are their lavorite pastime. Their stable, which has been the special care of Meyer Bothschild, is at Leatherhead John Scott's where now for upward of twenty years they have cultivated what Disraeli describes as "England's noblest pastime." Lio nel Bothschild has been rewarded by that "blue ribbon of the turf," for which Lord George Bentiuck, at moments in his brief tnt excited political life, long ed for beyond the hichest reward which politics should bestow. Lionel might have won it even far earlier with Orestes, in 1853, had not a foul grain or two been introduced into the horse's oats the night before the race. His hunting-box has been at Mentmore, some forty miles from London, onthe Northwestern rail, where are kept up a splendid stud and a noble park these also having been en tirely under the mastership of Meyer Bothschild. Both Lionel and Meyer were in parliament in politics. They entered tne political arena to assist, in crowning the temple of freedom by the emancipation of their race, and wiping away the last persecuting spot from the statute book of England. They are now both removed from the scene, Lionel having lost his election in London. Mr. Disraeli, whom they look to naturally with pride, and for whom they enter tain a very warm friendship, was fre quently, when chancellor of the ex chequer, iu the habit of consulting them on questions of finance. But they be longed to the silent benches. The Jews were once regarded as a race who lived exclusively among themselves, and the terror of Shylock, -when ho heard that his child had run ofTwith a young Ve netian christian, was regarded as a true picture of their thought. But all this lias passed away. The beautiful saying of the Hebrew woman who, when the prophet, to whom she had been often kind and hospitable on his way to Je rusalem, said: "What is to bedouofor thee? Wguld'st thou be spoken for to the king or captain of the ho3t?" an swered, "I dwell among my own peo ple," is forgotten. The sister of Lionel and Meyer Rothschild was married to Hon. Henry Fitzroy, of the ducal house of Grafton, and a child of Sir Anthony was recently wedded to a member of another noble house. Jews all on the benoh, and iu every profession in Eng land they may be found in tho first place. And we should not wonder if, under the rule of the incoming first minister Disraeli, in the elevation of Lionel Rothschild to the peerage, Uio coronet symbolically will take the place of tho yellow cap of the Ghetto. A genfleman from Nebraska is ex tremely mad about divers statements which the Grand Duke Alexis is said to have recorded?in his book as to the ac nnmnllHlimnnts of Nebraska legislators. He emphatically says that it is not true that one western statesman congratu lated the duke on the successes of his, father in France, and that another wanted to know if it was always cold iu Russia. Far from it; but the reason why his highness forgot and said it is suggested by tho exasperated writer in the insinuation that perhaps the duke was disappointed because the people of Nebraska didn't rush forth with frenzied curiosity to behold him. Then follows a dark and mysterious hope that tho royal writer has related how many times he shot at androissed one very large buffa lo, and how ''the animal was finally wounded by the daring Buffalo Bill and respectfully held by the horns while his highuess killed him. The Nebraska geutlemau intimates that a glittering throng of witnesses prepared to rise like a bunch of Banquos at almost any moment aud confront Uia rash being who has dared to cast ajlyubt upon the noble andnuUmed wisdom of our states- man. jsThe financial condition remained unchanged yesterday;7 ' Money continues iucumui, ioo pienuiui many cupiumava say. That means that money is seeking lo dliruso Itself, to expand and circulate In tho channels or trade. This la the very thing that is wanted. Tho spring trade is at hand, if surplus capital "takes a hand" in it, It will bo well for capital and'well for trade. If the capital Is withheld It will go only to swell the summer plethora in Nowiork. Exchange is unsettled In some -particulars, bum is evident that the new raws will pro-, "vail.

Mr. league's message to council on city financial matters has, up to this time, produced no result. City securities are like promised money, "no where;" it Is said that !a good many city bond; nave been sold for future delivery, and that they are carried at 10 pur cent., and that the bonds are not easy to lay hands upon. Wo await developments. There was a sala of 2U0U Mississippi Central at t0. Cotton quiet, dull, nothing doing, was the cryl to-day. Telegrams wer not in spiriting.
