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
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

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

plantation on Jame3 river, Va., bought,
three years ago, three Tri's Shanghai
chickens for $75. The year afterwards
he sold enough to repay him thrice his
outlay. The third year (the present) he
finds himself the owner of 2,500 hens.
