"The London Globe give tlie follow

present position of the "money Kiivgs of
Europe,' the" famous hou'-e of Roths

"Among nil the congresses held this
summer, of princi,c, lawyers, musicians,
school-masters, social science men.poli'
ical economists, and a hundred others,
one very notublo meating Itns almost
escaped public attention. A few days
ngo"our Paris correspondent told us
that a conures of the members of the
illustrious house of Rythschild has been
silting at Paris. Tho purport of the
meeting was nothing less than to rear
range the dominions.of the gieat bank
ing dynas'y. In one word, the great
object of the Rothschild congress was
to reduce the five branches of the house
who now rule Europe to four, and fol
lowing the example of G.iribaldi, to
strike another sovereign of Xaples from
the list of reigning monarchs. Hence
forth thcro are to be but four kings of
the house of Rothschild, with secure
thrones at London, Paris, Vi"nna and
"It is now exactly a bundled years
since a poor Jew, called Mayer Ansclm,
iBsds his appearance t the city of Han
over, barefojted, itli a sack on his
shoulders, and a bundle of rags on his
back. Successful in trade, like most of
his co religionists, he returned to Frank
fort at the end of a few years, and tel
up a small shop in the 'Jew law,' over
which hung the sign-board of a led
shield, called in German roth-tchiM.
As a dealer in old and rare coins, he
made the acquaintance of the Serene
Elector of Hesse Cassel, who, happen
ing to be in want of a confidential agent
for various open and secret purposes
appointed the shrewd-looking ilayer
Anselm to the post. The Serene Elec
tor, being compelled soon after to fly
his country. Maver Anselm took charge
of his cash, amounting to seteral mil
lions of florins, With the instinct of
his race, Anselm did not forget to put
the money out on good interest, so that
before Napoleon was gone to Elba, and
the illustrious Elector had returned to
Cassel, the capital had more than doub
led. The ruler of Hesse Cassel thought
it almost a. .marvel to got his money
aafelv returned from the Jew lane of
Franlfort.nnd at the Congress of Vienna
was never tired of singing the praise of
his Hebrew agent to alljhe-Prinees of
Europe. The dwellers under the sign
of the RedHShield laughed in their
. sleevMrkeeping carefully to themselves
the great fact that the electoral two
million" florins had brought them four
millions of their own. "Never was hon
esty a "belie' policy.
"Mayer Anselm died in 1C12, with
out having the supreme tatis faction of
baring Ms honesty extolled by kings
sad erinces. He left five sons, who
succeeded him in tho banking and mon
ey-Wading business.and who, conscious
of their social value, adopted the higher
oaadiagaame of Rothschild, taken from
the signboard over the paternal house.
Oa hie death-bed their father had taken
a solemn oath from all 0 them to hold
is (bar millions well together, and they
have faithfully kept the injunoi ion. But
the eld city W Frankfort was clearly
toe aerrow a realm for the'fruitful sow
iag W four millions; and.iu cousequence,
the bve were determined after awhile
to extend their sphere of operations by
establishing branch banks nt tho chief
cities of Europe. The oldest son. An-
selm, born 1773, remained at Frank
fort; the second, Salomon, born in 1774,
settled at Vienna; the third, Nathan,
born in 1777, went to London; tho fourth,
Charles, the enfant UrrilAcoi the family,
established himself in the soft cHuiV.e
of Naples; and the fifth and youngest,
James, born 1792, took up his residence
at Paris. Strickly united, tho wealth
and power of the five Rothschilds were
vested in the eldest-born; nevertheless,
the shrewdest of the sons of Mayer
Auselni, and the heir of hi genius,
Nathan, the third son, look the reigns
of government iuto his own hands. By
his faith in Wellington, and the llesh
and muscle of .British soldieis, he nearly
doubled the fortune of the family, gain
ing more than a million sterling by the
sole battle of Waterloo, the news of
which he carried to England two days
earlier than the mail. The wehrht of
the solid millions gradually transferred
the ascendancy in tho family from Ger
many to England, ranking London the
metropolis of the reigning dynasty of
"Like the royal families of Europe,
the members of the house of Rothschild
only intermarry with each other. James
Rothschid married' the daughter of his
brother Salomon; his son Edmund, heir
apptrcnlto tho French line, was united
to his first cousin, the daughter of
Lionel, and graud-daughter of Nathan
Rothschild; and Lionel again M, P.
for London gave his hand in 1C3G, to
his first cousin, Charlotte, the daughter
of Charles Rothschild of Naples. It it
unnecessary to say that, though thesis
matrimonial alliances have kept the mil
lions wonderfully together, they have
not improved the race of o'd Mirer
Anselm of the Red Shield. Already
signs of physical weakness are becom
ing visible in the reat fnmilv. Si at
least hint the French papers iu their
meare notices about the Rothschild
congress at ParK From all that ctn be
githcrcd out of a wilderness of canards,
thin faces, and thick fiction, it appears
that the sovereigns of the Stock Ex
change met in conference for the'double
purpose of centralizing their money
power and widening their matrimonial
realm. In other words, the five reign
ing kings, descendants, according to the
law of primogeniture, of the five sons
of Mayer Anselm, came to the decision
to reduce the number to four, by cutting
off the Neapolitan branch of Charles
Ro.hschild, while it was likewise decid
ed that permission bhould be given to
the younger members of the family to
marry for the benefit of ihe race, beyond
the range of first cousinship.
What has led the exclusion of
tho Neapolitan line of Rothschild seems
to have been the constant exercise of a
highly blameable liberality, unheard of
in the annals of tho family. Charles,
prodigal sen of Mayer Anselm, actually
nrasfciited. in the vear 1040, ten thous
and ducats to the orphan asylum of St.
Carlo, at Naples, and tho Mn and heir
of Charles, Gustavus, has given repeal
ed t-igns of his inclination to follow in
the footsteps of his father. Such con
duct, utterh unbecoming of the policy
of the house of Rothschild, could not
be allowed lo pass uunoticed; and, ac
cordingly wo quote the rumor of Paris
journalism the decieance of the Neapol
itan lino has been pronounced. -How-

The Little Outcast.
"Mayn't I stay, ma'am ? I'll do any
thing you give me cut wood, go after
water, and do all your errands."
The troubled eyes of tho speaker fill
ed with tears. It was a lad who stood
at the outer door, pleading with a kindly-woman,
who still scenmd to doubt
his good intention;.
Tho cottage stood by itself on n
bleak moor, or what in Scotland vould
lir.vc been called such. The lime was
near the cud of November; n fierce
wind rattled tho boughs of the only
naked tree near the house,and lied with
a shivering sound into tho narrow door
way, as if seeking for warmth at the
bbzing lire within. Now and then a
snow-flake touched, with its soft chill,
the check of the listener, or whit ncd
the augiy ledness of the poor' boy's
benumbed hands.
The worn tn evidently was loth to
grant the boy's request, and the peciL
liar look stamped upon his featuers
would havo suggested to acy mind, an
idea of depravity far beyond hjs years.
But her mother's heart could not resist
the sorrow in those hrge.b'if not hand
some grey oyes.
"Coma in, nt any rate, till the gudo
man conies home; there, sit down by
the file: you look polishing with tho
cold." And she drew a rudo chair to
the warmest corner; ihen, suspiciously
glancing at the child from the corners
of her eyes, she continued setting the
table for supper.
Presently came tho Iranip of heavy
shoes, the door swung open with a
quick jerk, and tho "gudeman" pre
sented him -elf, weary with labor. A
look of intelligence passed between
his wife and himself hft, too, scanned
the boy'b face with an expression not
evincing satisfaction, but, nevertheless,
made him come to the table, and then
enjoyed the zest with which ho dh?
patched his supper.

meat, fish, &c, from intense heat or
long keeping, are likViy'? to pass into a
stale of corruption, a simple and sure
mode oT keeping thni . sound and
healthy is, by putting a few pieces of
charcoal, each the sire of an egg, into

put three or four pieces of char
coal, each the mzo of an egg.under the
strainer, in the fish kettle; after boiling
the proper lime, the turbot came to the
table perfectly sweet and firm.
