A 8 tor. born thirty -ono yeurs. and died

for several generations, had first sccu the
light on Staten Island, und inherited
various traits from his Dutch Block. He
had more financial capacity it amounted
to genius than Astor; had fur greater
originality, boldness and power of com'

no man of this century ever bent himself
moro entirely to tho pursuit of wealth,
from the time ho (tough t a pcriagua. at
1(5. after his lather's death, to carry farm
, products to the New York market, until
' his dual illness at 8',!.
He was illiterate throughout life, having
a violeut prejudice against education.

for Sam Weller but ho invariably wanted

known, expressed tho slightest regret for
his lack of education, atjd. presumably,
never felt anv. being in this mi exception
to his race, lint as n compensation fully

astute at u trade, biar or little, and had a
marvelous instinct for commercial profit
Before "0. ho removed to this citv, and
three years later was worth a?10,000,
which was harder, ho said, to get than
anv subsequent sum. At that limo he
built the first steamboat to run betweeu
New York and New Brunswick, and re
reived 61.000 a j-ear as captain. Ho con
tinned on tho line until ho made its
revenue $10,000 a yerr; hi.i wife mean
whilo keeping an inn ho luvl married at
10 at tho New Jersey terminus, aud
turning it to good account.
For fifty four years ho followed the
water, owning steamboats on the Dela

and steamships on tho Atlantic aud l'a-
ciGo, Rteadilv overcoming opposition and
h welling his fortune. At 10, with prop
erty estimated at 4O.00O,u0i. the comuio
dore, as ho was called, directed his attcn
tion to. and concentrated his interest In,
raw wars, having been lor manv years a
Htoekhokier in the New York and
w" tTaveu roud. At so advanced au ago
such a change was hazardous to snv the
least; but he was brilliant Iv successful In
it, showing the energy and force of youth
in all his plans and combinations. He
scarcely ever miscalculated, but in at
temn'.ingto gain command of tho Erie
road, when I'isk and Gould controlled it,
ho found that thev were supplying, with
out any thought of responsibility, all the
shares that ho or others were willing to
pay for Soon tiring of pitting his money
against their printing press, ho confessed

made, toward the last, various bequests,
some of which indicated that he was not
impervious to artful gallantry. lie often
helped men that ho happened to like, and
it may bo said, to his credit, that he was
always as good as Lis word. Totally
without pretense or presumptiou, ho was
generally accessible, having so much ex
ecutive power that he was seldom presse.
for time.
Fine locking, especially in Lis old age,
his handsome face, erect carriage, and
clastic step were likely to draw attention,
even in crowded Broadway. He might
havo been a prince in disguise, if princes
were what tin y are imagined to be. He
certainly did not appear, physically, like
tho hard Leaded, unconditional, unlettered
business man ho was. His two recrea
tions were driving and whist. He loved
good horses, had plenty of them, and was
the despot of the road. In whist, he
played the rigor of the game, and could
not bear to bo beaten, which ho seldom
was. At Saratoga, where ho usually
spent the summer, he was disappointed
if he did not win enough to meet his
hotel bilL When his memory began to
fail he ceased to play; serious us was tho
deprivation, ho was unwilling to loso the
rank ho had so long occupied. Ho did not
bother himself about theology; but if he
had lielievcd tho Biblical announcement
of tho diiliculty attendant upon a rich
man's entering heaven, ho would have
had a very poor opinion of heaven. Paul
