And who has not heard of tho vin du Arciar, presed from grapes grown on both sides of tho mountain In its capacious tnn, originally containing nvo hundred and twenty-eight hogsheads, and, when rebuilt, enlarged to six hundred, which is still shown to strangers? Though the cas tle and tho garden arc in ruins, tho statutes of the ancient electors and Count Palatines aro still to bo seen on tlio frontof tho castle, nnd tho remains of tho hall of the chevaliers arc still visible; while the granite columns iormerly supporting n part of tlio imperial palace at Ingclhcim, near Maycncc, are seen supporting tho roof of tho fountain of tho castle. It was near this historic city, in tho littlo village of Waldorf, not quito a docado ovor a century ago, that the light of tho world first shono upon a person who was dostinod to a remarkable career m tho New World j for hero John Jacob Astor was born on "tho 17th of July, 1763. His father, Jacob Attor, was .1 butcher of that village, and a "ne'er-do-well" of tho Rip Van Winkle kind, who having littlo to do in his lino of business in a villago whero animal food was considered a luxury,spont his Icisuro time, which was pretty much all of it, in about tho way poor Rip did, though wo nio not informed that ho ever bocame tho worse for liquor, except to becomo as idlo rw tho bccr-guzzling gossips did who spontthoir time in tho becr-house, where tho father of tho futuro wealthy New York merchant In September, 1783, news of tho peaco be tween Great Tlritaln and tho colonies was published In Europe, and young Astor im mediately made preparations to emigrate to tho Old World.

On tho vessel, young Astor had mado tho acquaintance of a German, who a few years beforo had emigrated to Amorica, and had mado considerable monoy in trading furs. iVttor became Interested, learned all ho could pertaining to the trade, and resolved to engage in it. His first thing to do on ar riving in New York was to find employment in a fur-dealing house, and thoroughly mas ter its details, bcirinninjr Ids labors at two dollars a week and his board. Hero ho be gan to amass new knowledge about furs, and tho habits and retreats of fur-bearing ani mals, tiuestloning all who camo iu with skins to sell, as many of tho hunters did in person, no only staid with his omploycr until ho had mastered tho busiuesj, and then began for himself. Ho had during this time, how- ovor, mado ono voyago up tlio Hudson, and across tho unsettled country to Lakes Oeorgo and Ghamplain, and finally to Montreal, where ho proved more than a match for tho shrewd Indians, and brought back a repu tation for "driving a hard bargain," which ho always retained. In 17S6, in a small storo on Water street, Mr. Aetor's first ontranco into business took place. His storo was furnished with a few toys and notions which would provo attract- vo to Indian eyes, and there ho began "dickering" for skin?. His ontiro capital consisted of only a few hundred dollars, mado merry over his troubles, and forget part of which had been loaned him by his them in tho hilarity surrounding him. brother. Hero ho bought, beat, cured and Yet there was one season of tho year when sold skins himself, having no assistant, and business was brisk with old Jacob, and that made several journeys on foot during tho was duriiic the harvest time. It was then year through Western New York, buying tho custom in Germany for the farmers to skim from trappers, settlers, savages, or each set apart a bullock, calf, sheep or pic. wherever ho could find them. IIo also kept and fatten against tho harvest sea-son j and these animals the villago butcher was called upon to kill and prepare. So this season founu jolly Jacob Astor on his journey from liou-o to house, making sausage meat of tho pig, or othcrwiso preparing the flesh of tho other animals in tho way tho owner desired, frequently spending from ono to several days a few musical instruments from his brother's store in London, he being tho first person to establish .1 musical instrument store in Now York. His wife, married shortly after ho entered tho business world for himself, had a thor ough knowlcdgo of furs, nnd cntored hearti ly into business with him, for a long timo lars and a half, and the remaining articles at a great profit also, and tho return cargo of tea was sold at a clear profit of a dollar a pound. Mr. Astor's profit on this voyago was $63,000, and it was sent to his storo packed in barrols. It is needless to say that tho next ship that sailed with that permit bo longod to Mr. Astor, and carried an assort ed careo. A laughable incident occurred on her ar rival at Canton, She had touched at tho Sandwich Islands to tako in fresh water and provisions, where tho captain took aboard a largo stock of firewood. Tho firewood was noticed by a mandarin at Canton tho moment ho came aboard and ho inquired "What ts tho price of that?" Tlio captain smiled to himself at what ho thought an absurd quettion, but finallyVaid : "What will you givoV" Oh, I guess it isvorth fivo hundred dol lars a ton." Every splinter of it was sold at that price. It was sandalwood. Tho traffic in sandalwood was monopo lizod by Mr. Astor for nbout seventeen years, no other concern In England or the United States knowing the secret. Nor was It finally discovered till n shrewd ship owner of I!os- ton detailed a ship to follow ono of Mr. As tor's and observe every event of the voyage. In 1830, Mr. Astor began to withdraw a little from active business, and then took the first steps toward building tho hotel which bears his name, but which wo seo is soon to bo taken down, to givo placo to tho marblo and brown-stono fronts that commerco asks for Its haunts. Mr. Astor was a peculiar man, and in family matters was as proud and oxclusivo as though he descended from a king instead of a butcher. With his family ho was lib eral it is said i 11 their day of affluence his wife used to demand and receive fivo hun dred dollars nn hour for her judgment on furs but with tho world he was close and in somo cases 'downright meanness wouh crop out.

Sho was thrifty, hard-working, saving, and ns devoted to her family as her husband was to the beer-house, If the truth must be told Dame Astor was blessed (?) with a peculiarity of tho Van Winkle household, as well as her husband a somewhat freo uso of tho tongue, which sho used iu a vixenish manner at times with much tho samo result that attended Damo Van Winkle's cxerciso of it, though in this cao it drove the boys from homo to seek congeniality in tho world at large, and seemed to havo little ellect on tho easygoing husband and father. So out from beneath tho parental roof went the Astor boys ata comparatively young age, and inheriting their mother's thrift and business qualities, fought their way success fully. Two of tho brothers of our hero had beaver and other high priced ones. Ac cordingly it was not long beforo ho foundjit necessary to go to London with them, as ho had no agent thero to consign them to. Hi went out as a steerage pas-ienger, fearing the re-tilt might prove unsuccessful; but on his arrival his venture was crowned with moro success than tho most s.tn''uino would havo prophesied, Reaver skim which had been bought from tho trappers in Western New lork for a dollar sold 111 London for six dol lars, invested In English goods, netted him ten in New York. Tho reader will readily see what an immenso margin of profit was hero open. As though this was not sufficiently prom ising, Mr. Astor during his rambles about London, waiting for tho vessel to sail on her return to New York, visited tho East India a chronometer. "Veil," said tho merchant, "you puy one, Supposing this remark to authorize him to hso on account, tho captain did so and put tho price in tlio account; but, when present ed, it was stricken out Captain DePcyster, ono of tho gcntlcme: of tho old school, brought down his gold headed cauo on the pavemcmt with empha sis, and said : Very good, Mr. Astor.
