Though this gentleman is far less nota ble than Jay Gould, whose portrait and life sketch we presented last week, and a far less important factor in American liistory, yet he has probably the most money. The ambition of old Commodore Cornelius Vanderbilt was to have his colossal fortune kept intacf, and after training his Bon William II. for years for flin nnrnnsp. 'hebeoueathed nearly all of it to him, sending off his other child ren and relatives with pittances compara tively. Probably with what the old com modore left, and its increase, William II. is now the possessor ol a round iw,- 000.00J. lie wont on to Wall stieet a lew yenrs since, got nipped by Gould each lime, and tillimaely, if he had kept at it, seemed sure to shatter his fortune. But he was sensible enough to witnuraw, when ho found he was losing heavily, and has now invested his tremendous wealth, except what he uses for his rail road operations, in U. 8. 4 pi r cent bonds. Alii this conservative way ne is exactly fitted to pile up wealth, at the rate of nilllnna n vpnr. Unless his children dis sipate it, almost one more generation will see the Vanderbilts equal to the Roth childs of to-day. As they, and the Goulds, Flood's and Alackey's grow ricner, poli tical and commercial power will c ntinue lo aggregate in their hands, the poor mau will have a still harder chance, and communism, and revolutionary schemes will thrive. To such au end have tariffs, subsidies, monopolies, and corrupt and extravagant methods growing out of the war been hastening us for the last 20 years. It is within this time that these tremendous fortunes have been piling up. A general ion ago such thines were impossible. It is strange that the peo ple do not ask what the difference is; but the great monopo ists furnish the money for the political campaigns, and the voters are blinded. William H. Vanderbilt is the oldest la'e Commodore Cornelius Vandrbilt. He was born at the sum mer residence of his father, New Brans wik ff. ".T.. and after a practical edu cation at" Columbia College Grammar School, he entered, in Ins eignieeniu vear. the financial house of Drew, Kob x rv, t Nmiv York, where, on the expiration of two years, he was offered a t.,.,i,ir, K,,nn hnwer. for sume rea- )Son, he retired without any money and went to farming. Toe Comimo iore gave him seventy-five aeres of unimproved land on SUtten Island, and he soon had a larger tract purchased, mill S&0 acres , T X- ..nantff.fil'. QmH in reianou i mu Mr. Vanderbilt alleges, it is said, that it tried him sorely, as be bad not sufficient means to work ana improve it inurougii iv nor would his futiier advance him a dollar to aid him. In this extremity he mortgaged the land for $0,000, which he turned to good account ; and the circum stances coining to the Commodore's ears, the old gentleman ODservea to nun one day while they were riding together on one occasion : t " So you mortgaged tne isew uruu furm for $0,000, did you xouaon i amount to a row of pins, and never will I "T did morhraee the farm..' repliel the son, " and have put every cent of it the money ngut miu impimiug land." " Well," continued tlie (jommouore, I'll have nothine more to do with you ; for vou will onlv bring disgrace on your self, your family, and every one connect ed with you." . . , Th alter nroenotticaiion uoea nut ap pear to have been fulfilled ; and as lo his never amounting to a row of pins, we think there has been no ver, clear veri this assertion, either. How ever, the Commodore tha morning after tha rnnvHrsation.sent his son a check for $0,000, ordering hiin to pay off the mort gage immediately. . Shortly after this period the btaten ti.,.,,1 Knilmjd (Inmnaiiv became em barrassed, when Mr. Vanderbilt and his uncle Jacob entering the management relieved the road of its difficulties and improved its prospects in a marked de t'if;i! Vib waa elected vice president of the New York & Harlem, and by his industry and conservatism, won tne con fi.io.,. nf hiH eccentric old father, and i,0,.0n,u tlm confidant and associate of ll l.lu nraal nn.rHl.innS.

He has made various visits to Europe where ne nas pun-.iaeru numerous works of art for the adorn ment of hi home. His new residence costs $2,000,000. Though now 00 years old he is hale and active. He gives munificently for charities ana puuuc enterprises, and in private life is a very companionable man, though always on the alert for bnsineas, and selfish ag grandisement. In none of his mere per sonal habiitt is he extravairant. And yet dear hands that clasp my wii, Fond eyes that tell me tender itoriea.

He was doubtless a trau'p. His worn and dusty dress bis crushed felt hat, his dirty shoes, and the checkered muslin shirt, tied at the neck with a bit of rusty black ribbon, and the little bun dle borne on his shoulder from the end of a stout stick, told the story plainly. Added to this was the board of a week s except the moustache, which had not been touched by a razor. He was rattier a tray and g od-looking fellow for all that, with a keen eve, an open counten ance, and a well knit figure, and he strode along as though he felt the wan dering idler was real y the king of other men, and tramping a superior art.

In another parf of the world, according to evidence furnished to the same asso ciation bv Wilfred Powell, in New Brit ain and the neighboring isles on the east coast of Guinea, the wives are absolute property of their husbands, and are bought, so'd and eaten by their better halves.

Peter. , Some years since, David Baker, a dis tinguished poet in the State of Maine, after the birth of his first child, wrote and published the following pretty poem: One night as old St. Peter slept He left the gate of Heaven ajar, When through a little angel crept. And came down with a falling star. One summer, as the blessed beams Of morn approached, my blushing bride Awakened from some pleasing dreams And found that angel by her side. Ood grant but this I ask no more That when he leaves this world of pain He'll wing hi. way to that bright shore, -And Und the road to Heaven again. John G. Saxe, not to be outdone, and deeming that injustice had been done to St. Peter, wrote the following as st. peter's reply. Foil eighteen hundred year, or more I've kept the gate securely fast, There hss no "little angel" strayed. Nor recreant through the portal passed. I did not sleep, as yon supposed. Nor left the door of Heaven ajar. Nor has a "little anger' lett. And gone down with a fallng star.
