Fifth nvonuo appruuchus completion.
For three yoius it has beoti in cotitsn
of oroelioii , uiul is now so nearly coin
plotod tli.it its owner expects to occu
py it before Christinas. In size , in
t'li'gnnco , in uostliness there is no
house like it.
Fifth avunuo is one of the grandest
residence streets in the world. It is
nil now , its buildings having been put
up within the last thirty years. Most
of the splendid ones are not yet : i dor-
cn years old. Vanderbilt's mansion
fronts the a. unno on thu whole block ,
extending from Fifty-first to Fifty
second street on the west side. It is
Of brown stone. It is commonly
spoken of ns u mansion , but it is really
two. One of these William 11. Vanderbilt -
derbilt built for his own residence.
The other is a present to his two
daughters. This , although it appears
to b\j one house , ia divided into two.
The entr.ince of the northern one is on
Fifty-second street , while that ot the
other in in the massive portico which
connects the two buildings. Thc o
are of hrpunstnno nl.-io and are four
stories high. jUr. Vinidorbilt's which
is at the Fifty-first strt'ot end of the
block , is 7 1 feet by llo , while tin ,
other is n few feet smaller. Thougl

It is necessary to walk wound thtso

fore one can realix.o how enormous
they are.
AT TUK 1)001' .
At the butsot sco thin great paving
stone , the largest ever brought to this
city. Solomon may have quarried
such atones , but , until now , our tjuar-
rymcn have not. It is iifteon feet
wide , twenty-five feet and two inches
lonsr , and eight inches thick. It was
quarried at Barryville , and cost § 5-
000. It weighs about forty tons. It
was brought to the city on a canal
boat built expressly for it. Standing
directly opposite to the buildings urnl
taking in the whole front we sou a
majestip exterior. The plot of ground
is inclosed by a stone coping sur
mounted at intervals by richly cut
pillars , on which will be placed lamps
elaborately worked in bronxo. Asa
whole the exterior is remarkably
square and not vciy ornate , being in
these respects in striking contrast with
William H. Vanderbilt's white stone
mansion on the next corner north
ward. Absence of bold and striking
architectural ornament is more than
compensated for by the elaboration of
carving in detail. From outside , the
fourth story does not look like a story
at all. Its windows are reticulated in
such a way that the glass will IN , t ehow
from the street. Below it runs a gut
ter of solid bronxo , with open mouthed
lion's heads at short intervals. Above
it is the cornices which is seventy-six
feet ahovo the pavement.
The two houses are connected by a
* olid and spacious portico , whoso ex
terior is of brownstone , hut whoso in
terior is set with mosaics of curious
marbles and will bo furnished with a
costly pavement of tile. A skylight
of glass and iron will shed down on
this pavement a pleasant light through
windows of elaborate staiiwl glass.
This portico is reached by a pavement
of stone tiling , which extends some
thirty feet from the line of frontage
on 1'ifth avenno. Its front will bo
open to air and sunshine. Wo enter
Vanderbilt's house through the
famous double bronze doors , which
cost ? 20,000. Wo pass through the
part of tlio structure devoted to Mr.
Vanderbilt's daughters. Both of
these ladies havu families. Mrs.
Sloano is tlio wife of a member of the
great caipet house of Sloano , and
.Mrs Shopard's husband is Elliott F.
Shepard , a prominent member of the
bar of this city.
In all the three houses there are no
two rooms alike in finish or decora
tions. The Sloano and Shepard
houses are by no means as gorgeous
in their finish ns the mansion of the
paternal Vandorbilt. Yet they are
far in excess of anything hitherto
seen in this city.
TJIK OUEATHST.
Mr. Vanderbilt has the advantage
in his own house of occupying the
space which ho has in the other part
used for two dwellings. Everything
heie is on a larger scale as well as of
greater costliness. Entering through
the doorway we plant our feet in ahull
the pavement of which will bo of tile
niid mosaic and will cost § : iO,000. It
is in the center of the house. It extends -
tends by a series of galleries to thereof
roof , openings being made through the
floors of the upper stories. Tlio iloora
arc supported by great iron columns ,
faced with various kinds of many col
ored Egyptian and other African mar
bles. A rich mantle of Egyptian mar
ble , with open fireplace , faces the en
trance door. On the west the great
hall opens to tlio picture galleryon the
Houtlf to the dining-room , which is on
the Fifty-first street corner , fronting
Fifth avenue. On the east it leads to
the parlor , drawing-room and library ,
these three rooms being in rango.on
the Fifth avenue front. The great
stairway is on thu north side. It is
wide enough for the stairway of a
meeting-house , and is richly carved in
solid oak. The bronze newel post at
its base will cost about § 2,000. The
wall frescoes of the hall are for the
most part finished. They are rich
with gilding , especially on the frieze
work which appears on the balustrades
of the several floors , and which is
pierced with panels for the reception
of paintings on canvas , Tlie walls of
the hall and stairway are chiefly done
in crimson with n style of pilding
which at first sight looks as if intend
ed to simulate brick work. But the
oyu HOOII becomes accustomed to it as
it is aeon to bring out the other fresco
work in delightful contrast.
J'ICTUUK aALLEUV , DIKINOIIOOM , KTC ,
The picturn gallery is the largest
. vpartmont in the house , It is JJ'Jx-18
and aa high nn two stories. Lighted
from nbovo by n curiously constructed
combination of roof and ukylight , it
will afford on every foot of its oxton
"nivo v/all perfect light for the display
of oil paintings. At ono end U tlio
"Aquarelle" room , which is separated
only by an archway. Thisis ITix. ) ' . '
feet and has a gallery. At the other
end of the picture galleiy and con
nected Auth it is the conservatory ,
which is the same size ai the aquarelle
room. On the second floor between
the hall and picture gallery , is a cosy
nook for an orchestra , the music fiom
which can bo equally heard in either
place. A skylight , which will be
furnished with slained glass , will
throw a flood of tinted daylight on
the hall. At niirht 1C ! ) gas burners
will keep darkness away. The whole
house isired for cleetrivS lights , with
a view to introducing such fixtures as
may prove desirable. The dining
room is L'S.xSO fret. The elaborate
nmgniticonco of this dining-room is
almost beyond description. The
wood is dark English oak , with many
carvings in bold ilief. . At the opal-
cm end of the room isa richly carved
mantel snppoitina ; > n immense mir
ror. The ceiling is arched and pan
eled. Uotwcen the windows are buf
fets ef oak , lined with crimson velvet
and faced with heavy plato glass.
These will contain plaques and other
line porcelains. A wainscoting of
pant'led and carved oak extends
around tno room to the height of sev
eral feet. The wall between this and
the cornice is to bo decorated with
tapestries an < l paintings.
The pallor or drawing room is 25xJl !
feet , and is finished in elaborate style
with much carved and paneled work.
It opens to a lareo balcony on Fifth
nvonuo. The library , in ebony , is at
one end , and on the other is a smaller
parlor iu Japanese stylo. This is an
odd-looking room. Its prevailing fea
ture is bright red cherry wood , polish
ed almost like a mirror. The ceiling
which is shaped like a real .lapancjo
house , is decked with bamboos , split
in halt and nailed to the plastering.
All these rooms , as well as a reception
room at the main entrance , open on
the hall.
Till : FAMILY UOOMH.
Now we ascend the broad stairway
and find the rooms in the second story
devoted to the comfort of Mr. Vanderbilt -
derbilt and his family. Hero the
walla around the gallery of the hall are
frescoed with the same crimson and
gold in brick pattern as below. The
stairway is amply lighted by the sky
light of tlio hall. Mr. Vanderbijt's
immediate family , residing with him ,
consists of himself , his wife , on'c
daughter and one son. Each has a
capacious bedroom , with separate
dressing room. Of these Mrs. Van
derbilt's room is the most elegnnt. It
is over the main parlor with a balcony
on Fifth avenue. The balcony is
already embellished with curious
mosaic work in gold and crim
son , mid will bo made very beautiful
with bronze decorations. The elabo
rate cabinet work of Mr. Vanderbilt's
room was all made in France , of ama
ranth , rosewood , ebony and various
other woods arranged in harmonious
and tasteful combinations. There is
an immense quantity of inlaid work in
this room Above the wainscoting
the walls will bo covered with satin
and tapestry. The coiling will bo
adorned with one largo and costly
painting of great beauty , executed by
Jules' Lefebvre , a famous French
artist. It is to bo stretched over the
whole ceiling from cornice to cornice.
The painting represents the dream of
a poet , who , with an invocation to the
goddess of night upon his lips , has
sunk to sleep on a summer evening
under a starry sky : * The departure of
night and the coming of day are rep-
resontedby Pluube.with crescent moon
upon her brow , retiring , while Aurora ,
in a silver car , rides over the scatter
ing mists and ushers in the opening
day. The rising vapors melt away and
disclose the edge of the rising run.
In all its appointments Mr. Vandor-
Inlt's room is the most elegant on this
lloor. Caryatides carved in dark
woods support the mantel , which
holds a largo and heavy bevel-edged
mirror. In the dressing room adjoin
ing this apartment the bath-tub is
of silver-plated metal , and the
doors to the closets are heavy mirrors ,
which Mido easily and noiselessly.
Mr. Vanderbilt's room is over the
dining-room and is light and cheerful ,
though not so fine in its cabinet work
as Mrs. Vanderbilt's. His dressing-
room is with sliding mirrjts , conceal
ing closets and bathing apparatus and
is finished in mahogany and polished
brass.
brass.Miss
Miss Vandorbilt's room is finished
in rosewood inlaid with mother-of-
pearl. The frescoed ceiling , by a
curious conceit , represents cobwebs on
a yellow ground. These are the only
cobwebs that will bo allowed in the
liouse. The walls of this room are
covered with satin. The dressing-
room is in light satin-wood , with jian-
cls of mirrors on wall and in ceiling ,
producing an eilect not unlike that
which is noticed in Fomo of the much-
mirrored Pullman cars.
Young Mr. Vanderbilt's room is a
dark mahogany , with awealth of book-
fholves and with wall trimmings in
htamped leather. It is about twenty
foot square. The bedroom , which
joins it is about half thatsizo.
AND YJ.T TIIKUK IS JIOUK.
Wo ascend from this Jowildering
array of fine finish and elegant decor
ation to the third story. Hero are
rooms for guests , the entrances being
as in the story below , from the gallery
around the upon space above the
lower hall. Thcso rooms are all fin
ished in cabinet wood and frescoed in
diHeront styles. No work on this
story is quite as elaborate as that on
the floor below. Each room has a
richly carved dressing-case supporting
a largo plate-glass mirror There is
one dressing-room in every two sleep
ing rooms. At the third stairway the
great staircase comes to an end. A
narrower stair leads to the fourth
story , which is occupied by servants'
rooms and storage cjosots. Wo gi
higher by a steep and narrow little
stairway like n ladder , wo climb out
on the roof. This is laid in rod brick
tiles on a bed of asphaltum , the sup
port being of iron beams. From this
elevation seventy-six foot above the
street , the whole surrounding country
may bo soon. Mr. Vandorbilt's out
lay in those houses ia variously esti
mated at from two to three millions
of dollars ,
Palpitation of tlie Heart.

Sylvcutor Doollttlc.
A quiet , unostentatious man died at
Oawogo , N. Y. , n few days i\io Aho is
worthy of being remembered among
the benefactors of hisagii and country.
Ho probably did more to improve the
means of transporting passengers and
goods by water than any man of his
11150 except the im'pntor of the steam
boat. His name was Sylvester Doo-
little. He was born in central Now
York during the first year of the
present ccntnty , and learned the trade
of ship-carpenter in early life. Ho
had just attained his majority when
the Erie canal was opened from Al
bany to Rochester , in which city ho
lived , being engaged in building canal-
boats designed to carry freight to the
Hudson river. A company had been
for/ued / for running a line of packets
from Rochester to Albany , but there
were no boats suitable for the purpose.
All that had been built were veiy
heavy and hard to draw , as they dis
placed so much water. Most of the
owners of boats declared that they
must necessarily bo heavy in order to
bo sufliciently strong to resist the
"bringing" against the sides of locks.
Young Doohttle , however , took a dif
ferent view of the matter , llo thought
if the boats were built of light mate
rials they would have .1 slight momoii
turn on approaching a look , and would
receive but a slight shock on striking
its sides. Ho accordingly constructed
a boat so light that a team could draw
it on u trot when it was filled with
passengers. It was entirely success-
tul , and the builder received the con
tract for making all the boats that
composed the packet line. His trial
boat \sas tlio model for building near
ly all thu canal packet-boats in the
country till the general introduction
of railroads put an end to their em
ployment.
llo then turned his attention to the
matter of through traiiHportation from
the town.s on the line of the canal to
Now York city. For a long time after
the opening of the ; Erie and Oswego
canals no boats proceeded farther than
Troy or Albany , and the boats em
ployed were not suitably constructed
to navigate the river with safety. Mr.
Doolittle constructed u boat of unusu
al strength and large capacity , loaded
it with grain , and started with it for
Now York. When ho reached the
river ho found that no steamboat cap
tain would tow it down stream. At
both Troy and Albany there was a
combination of warehouse and barge
men who were enjoying a monopoly in
the transportation business , and the
members looked with suspicion on any
innovation. Ho was at length suc
cessful in chartei ing a small steamer
which was noc regaidedasof sufficient
consequence to take into the ring , and ,
taking command of it hiniHelfproceed-
ed with his strange craft in tow to
Now York. Its arrival cieatecl in
tense surprise in port , and the young
captain became the hero of the hour.
The trip was a great success in all re
spects , the cargo of grain was sold at
a handsome profit , and a load of mer
chandise taken to Utiea in return.
The voyage created a revolution in
the carrying trade of New York state.
The combination at Troy and Albany
was broken up , a stop was put to tlio
rehandling of produce and all kinds of
jcods , and the time and cost of trans
portation greatly ruduccd.
The man who had improved canal
packet-boats and revolutionized the
carrying trade on inland waters did
not long remain idle , lie looked
about for another Hold of uscfulnors ,
and soon found one. Ho removed to
Oswego , and engaged in building lake
vessels. He had a vessel on the
stocks when ho made the acquaintance
of Ericsson , who had invented the
screw propeller , but could line , no one
to adopt it. Mr. Doolittlo at once ap
preciated its great value , and made
irranu'emonts to introduce it on the
vessels ho was then building. In duo
time the Vandalia , the first vessel ever
run by means of a screw , was launch
ed , and made its trial trip , which was
entirely successful. This steamer
ave rise to the steam carrying trade
between cities on the western lakes
and those on Lake Ontario and the
river of'St. Lawrence , as side-wheel
steamers of any considerable size can
not pass through the Welland canul.
There have been moro brilliant ca
reers than that of Mr. Doolittle ,
but few in any age or country have
been productive of greater good.
Still , his name wns perhaps never
liejrd by many who will road this ar
ticle. Ho never held an ofliec , never
made a speech , never fought in battle -
tlo and never wrote n book. Ho sim
ply worked in a quiet , earnest way
"to servo his race and time" as best
lie could. Men of this kind are Bel-

Hooping Bocs.
There is room for bees on every farm
md ho who has neglected this impor
tant matter hnsannually suffered a loss
that might easily have been prevented.
It does not require a great amount of
knowledge to engugo in boo-kceping ,
and very little experience sarves to
enable the amateur to succeed ; but
still , a thorough knowledge of this
matter , as in everything else , is very
important if the business IK to bo
made one of profit.
For the information of those that
know but little about the original cost
of a beginning I will state that there
liavebeen great improvomenttiin hives ,
methods of extracting honey and
modes of artificial swarming , First ,
the price of a good patent hivois from
3 to $5. Full stocks , with tested
queen , cost in Juno $1in , July and
August a little loss. They are shipped
in little shipping boxes , unless the
liivo is ordered with them. Tlio best
liome-bred queens 85. With any
thing like u fair clmnco in their favor
the bites will produce per hive about
thirty pounds of honey , worth from
10 to 20 cunts per pound , according
to quality. Wo may safely estimate
that , after leaving the bees with their
winter supply , about § . ' 5 is a minimum
value derived from each hive.
Bees are great foragors. If you do
not prefer to grow flowering trees and
plants for them they will rob your
neighbor , travelling great distances
and working faithfully. Fences can
not keep them from an adjoining farm
when duty calls , but night will always
find thorn returning homo well filled ,
Shade trees are of ton honey producing ;
and there are HO many useless plants
end weeds that nro put to good use by
them , Clover and buckwheat are lit
erally "soaa of honoy" to them.
Among the trees that produce honey
miuht bo mentioned the maple , locust
ana poplar , as likewise the unplo ,
pear , cherry , etc. The small fruils
could bo cultivated with greater profit
\\ithboea \ as nn adjunct , as they IMII
always bo seen busily at uorkontho
blackberry , gooscberiy , raspberry ,
and , to say more , then * is hardly n
vegalnblo that grown that does not
furnish them with homy. A gra/.mg
country is also well mlnptod to them.
They nro not as pugihatii' as may bo
supposed , barely venturing an ntUck
ntilesi molested. A sudden jar on the
hive will cause them to be on the de
fensive , but aniok'o or a drumming on
the 1m o causes them to bo quiet.
Tlio queen will Iny nlxnit J.'l00 ! eggs n
day , and until nil the brooding cells
are filled. The character of thu
s arm may bo altered by changing
queens. For instancel j takingaway
the old queen and inserting an Italian
quenn , tlio siteceding RWarm will bo
( lilFeront bees from the old ones.
Hoys must ho well protected in i > inter.
If wo deniro good results wo must pro-
ted and assist them. In summer the
hives should bo under snnio tieo or
upon shelter that furnished sliado.
I would not ndviao any ono to go
blindly into bee enlturo , and yet it is
not a dilllcult experiment. Any per-
BOH with experience eimM furnish de
tails that would bo tm > lengthy to
mention hero in a few hours. What
] most desire to impress on the read
er is the fact that homy will answer
all the purpose Of sugar toaceitain
' xtent , mid it can bo furnished on
every farm , almost without price.
From one ttwarin in a few seasiiim will
spring n lariri nnmbor , and they make
their honey from materials that really
go to waste. It ia easily adulterated
or imitated , which lowers the price of
the genuine , and the best plan by
which wo can prevent tins shameful
practice is to niako plenty of the pure
article , whichif not able to compete
in sale with the spurious stutl' , will at
least lessen the number of buyers , ns
the genuine houov can bo consumed
nl homo , or placed for s.ilo in the
hands of reliable dealorsin pure honey.
There is not a single farmer in tins
state who could not keep bees with
protijt , and the only objection to bo
foun'd ia in the fear of their etinus ,
but in our march of improvement wo
have found a stinglcsa bee , which is
.not only harmless but a good worker.
Bees are valuable in another man
ner. From their freqiiot't visits to
flowers in search of honey they carry
pollen , and nature has partially made
them the means of fertilizing many
plants that would bo bairen without
their aid. They nro thus not only
profitable , but really important. No
doubt if all farmers woie beekeepers
it would solve many of the difficulties
and failures of crops now unaccounta
