Jt w?W3W* ? DAILY EVENING STAR. SFOBISM IH NEW YOBK of Mr. Schuyler, says the Buffalo Advertiser, furnishes a whole ser mon to snobs eveiywhere, and especially in New York, which may be listened to with profit by that large and increasing class of persons. The family of Schuy ler is one of the most respectable in the country, and so far this man differs from most of those who build extravagant houses, drive expensive equipages, and dish and spend the money ol other peo ple, in that most snobish of all cities? the great, noisy, dirty city of New York. Occasionally one of the 44 aristocracy" comes down with a rush, and the a there opens a scene of extravagance, folly and fraud, that appals the public who live in quiet country villages, or dwell upon the broad farms in the rural districts, who have heard with wonder of the noble mansions, and the many servants, and the gold and silver of these city lords. And so it is that extravagance and a foolish desire to live in large houses, and own grand carriages?to outdo one an other in these things, besides being ridic ulous in itself, brings the miserable fam ily that try it down to boggary and ruin, Of entail upon their children habits **,nd notions of life that utterly destroy tlicm. It is the great prevailing vicc of this time; it may indeed be called the grand char acteristic of the times. It is manifested more or less in all cur cities and villages, and its influences is seen in the debase ment of men and women, and the com plete ruin of cbildrea. Every successful speculator , or fortune operator, mast im itate, and if possible excel, his neighbor the lucky banker or money-making gro cer; and to do this without regard to ex pense, away they go into the marble and satin, the rosewood and silver, keep ex travagant carriages with horses to match, and give parties where Brussels and Wil ton outvie in their color, the silks and the wine which make up the chief part of the entertainment. Up goes the new house, with all the decoration which a vulgar or a refined taste may suggest.? Up it goes into the air a huge pile, or a fantastic residence, but not a room in it for the comfort of the owner and his fam ily?all of it for show and the public gaze. The women flaunt about in lace &ud laziness, or recline upon soft cush ions in fine carriages, neither knowing ?or caring whether the money that keeps them up be stolen or honestly gained.? They are happy in Fifth avenue glory, md the fact that they dash as much as the richest of their neighbors. ( For an American of fortune ?real solid . fortune?to dash into all these extrava gances is folly; but that man is guilty ? >f real wickedness who, upon a little ( noney goes to such vast and foolish ex- j pense; for lie must rob somebody to :arry out his plans ; or if he has enough .0 warrant it all, his children, when his , brtune is divided among them, will have ( ill the silly and extravagant notions of , heir father, without his money to give \ hem reality. Out of all this miserable ( ife there springs evils worse than bank- , ?uptcy. The sins of the father are visit ed upon the children to the third gene- j ?ation. Of what use to society are the children of such people ? Sons who have been educated to believe that all this , splendor constitutes the best of life, and iiat fast horses and champaigne are em- , blematic of high life. Daughters brought jp by a silly, ridiculous mother, who , 5lories in her carpets and her curtains, j :ier carriage and her parties, and the "ashionable training of her children- ( Nice creatures these for a life battle ( n a world where energy and industry ind endurance are worth more than all .he airs, graces, and style that they j learned in the paternal drawing of for- , jign masters. Out of this struggle to excel in this sort of life, there springs, fraud and chicanery, and all manner of :rime ; for in the contest gold, gold, is the end and aim of all?the means are not regarded. The sensible part of the community laugh at this folly, and laugh loudly, too, at the coarse vulgarity pa rading itself in gay equipages, and mov ing about with all the airs and affecta tions of snobbish high life?people ele vated above their fellows by a stock ope ration or a rise in town lots, and rejoic ing thereafter in flashy vehicles and in gaudy horses. If they made idols of themselves alone, it would all be proper enough. But the cttcct upon their families and on society is most to be dreaded. In a country where the law divides among a man's heirs all his estate after death, unless dis posed of by will, and where the chances are that property will not remain in the family beyond the second generation, it is utter folly to build palaces to live in ; far better would it be to expend the same in building schools or founding asvlunis, the benefit of which the rich man s heirs may need. On, on, goes our American life! helter skelter?hurly burly?on it goes! Dash?make a sensation?get money?honestly if you can?but get money?educate children after the same fashion, and then die and be forgotten. C0UP-DE-80LEIL, OB SUVSTBOKK. In conncction with the purpose of the foregoing articles, we append a few gen eral hints on a severe and not unfrequently a fatal casualty, which is apt to occur during the hot months of our Summer, especially in a crowded city, and princi pally ?TTmng those engaged in active and violent exertion while exposed to the rays of the sun, and hence called coup de-soliel, or sunstroke. Many fatal errors arc committed in the first moments of alarm on the occurrence of this accident?errors, the evil conse quences of which all the subsequent skill and care of the physicians are sometimes ineffectual in remedying. The promi nent symptoms of the attack are giddi ness, faintness, amounting in some in stances to complete insensibility or ap parent death. The first and best thing to be accom plished. is to remove the patient into a cool room or shady spot, laying him ear fully on the back, with the head very slightly, if at all, raised. Send for a physician. Sprinkle the face with cool water, un tie all strings, handkerchiefs, or banda ges from the throat, chest or waist. Rub the hands and feet briskly, and if the patient can swallow, administer a little brandy sad water, or a litUe, .spirits of la? ? gr?*icr nrwy of M Amu!

Prevent strenuously the drinking of large draughts of cold water, however urgent the request of the patient may be, until paction Cakes place. If there should be any delay in the ar rival of a physician, and the patient should not rally, the rubbing of the limbs must be continued, and in addition, mus tard poultices may be applied over the soles of the feet and the pit of the stom ach, and an emetic of mustard and water i.iay be administered, particularly if the patient, as is too often the case, imme diately previous to his seizure, has been drinking cold water in large quantities. Such precautions, judiciously, consist ently and perseveringly used, will fre quently restore auimation and produce reaction, after which the patient must be treated by a physician.?American Mcdicul Monthly. To Destroy Vermin ok Animals and liuais?6.W. Kendall, one of the edi tors of the New Orleans Picayune, in h?? letter from Paris to that journal, gives the subjoined recipe for destroying vur min on animals, plants and treee. The remedy is simple, easy of application, and worthy of at least a trial: The celebrated Kaspail.wcll known as one of the l?est French chemists, has given an important recipe for destroying ver min on animals, and also on plants and trees?important, at least, if true. The P roc ess he recommends is to make a so lution of aloes?one gramme of that gum to one litre of water. French measure? and, by means of a large brush to wash over the trunks and branches of trees with this solution. This Simple process, says Kaspail, will speedily destroy all the vermin on the trees, and will effectually prevent others from approaching. In or der to clear sheep and animals with long hair, they must be bathed with the solu tion, or well washed with it. Raspsil mentions several trails he has made with this mixture, all of which have been at tended with the most complete success; and he rccommcnds it very 6trongly to general use. I can only say that if a simple solution of aloes and water will kill or drive away ants from peach and other trees in Texas and other parts of the South, the discovery will be hailed with pleasure. At all events there is no harm in trying the experiment A French litre is a little less than three of ourpints ?a gramme is the five hundredth part of % French pound. A little aloes, if used it all, will thus go a great way. Were 1 troubled with ants and other vermin in Texas, (Mr. Kendall having a large tioek jf sheep in Texas,) I should certainly try Raspail's solution. CA plethoric, round-visaged indi vidual was yesterday seated on the steps jf the Custom Ilouse, bathed in tears, and sobbing violently, having in his hand a x>py of the Abend Zeitung; and the sight sf tears lloating in Wall street, being so unusual a circumstance, soon attracted a ;roup of people, curious to know what calamity had befallen the mourner ? 44 Is your father dead V1 asked one. 41 No, oh, no: mine fader is not dead ; worscr dan dat." 14 Is your wife dead ?" qucrried anoth er. 44 No, mine wife is not dead, too ; she shoost sits and schmokes a pipe all day long." 44 Has your wife sloped with some other feller ?" asked a newsboy, with dilapidated corduroys and a badly kept pair of feet. 44 You tink I'd cry for dat ?" was the indignant rejoinder. 44 No, intccd ; no such ding." 44 Ilowld aisy," suggested an apple weman, with a sympathetic countenance, through which the perspiration exuded profusely?44 howld aisy ; maybe his wife is dead in the ould counthry, or the childher sick, or maybe some of 'em was lost in the Say." 44 Die Schane Kntruma was lost in the Zuyder Zee, and dat ish what I cries for," replied the mourner, unable to say more, in the poignancy of his grief. 44 Was she a good ship ?" inquired a sailor who had elbowed his way through the crowd. 44 Yaw, it hold throe hundred passen gers. 44 And all gene to Davy's Locker ?" ?4 Yaw, all gone ; but dat is notting, and the tears tlowed afresh. 41 What is the matter, my friend ?" asked a good looking broker, with a pair of jetty whiskers, 44 What are you tret ting about ?" 44 Die Schiene was sinked, (sob) lost in the Zuyder Zee, mit?
