COL. FELLOWES LEARNING DUTCH.
I must now introduce the reader to an American 鈥渕erchant Prince,鈥?better known by his associates as the 鈥淧rince of Good
Fellows.鈥?鏉窞涓濊灏忓 This is Cornelius Fellowes, of the respectable firm of Messrs. Fellowes & Co., of New Orleans, La. He is rather more than a medium size man, and straight as an exclamation point, with handsome limbs. He cannot be justly termed handsome, without adding man. His face was the color 鏉窞姘寸（鏈嶅姟浼氭墍 of a last year鈥檚 red apple all free from decay; his hair is light for black, and not very thick on top, and he is aged 48 years. He is no politician, statesman, or orator, but as a business man, he is 鈥渟ound on the goose.鈥?I know of no man that could settle business disagreements to the 鏉窞娲楁荡涓€鏉￠緳 entire satisfaction of both, better than Mr. Fellowes. He would have made a profound judge, his heart and talent alike is so justly qualified. He is a very liberal and extravagant man, more so than any man I am acquainted with, but he is by no means a benevolent man; I 鏉窞瓒崇枟鎵嬫帹 don鈥檛 mean to say that he is stingy, for he is not, but I mean to indicate that he always has some original idea of his own to make him give; for example, if a group of little ragged girls come around him begging, he will instantly feel his pockets, and take out all the change, but 鏉窞419鍏氦杞﹁矾绾挎煡璇?the most of it would go into the hands of the prettiest or cleanest, at the same time saying, 鈥渢his is a pretty little girl,鈥?and if there is any left they will be sure to get the remainder. Or if a group of little boys are the beggars, he will give the most to the smartest, and exclaim, 鏉窞澶滅敓娲荤綉鎺ㄦ补 鈥渉e is a smart little fellow.鈥?And sometimes he is conscious of this partiality, and tries to evade it by throwing the coin among the boys to see them scuffle for it, but this trait of his is so marked, that he will be sure to throw it on his favorite鈥檚 head, and if he 鏉窞姘寸枟浼氶 fails to catch it, it is a sure sign of another chance for the boys. He laughs heartily when his boy catches it, as if it done his soul good. He is so proud, or haughty, or perhaps I had better say, naturally aristocratic, that he can descend from his sphere to vulgar without knowing it, and joke, laugh, and even offer some of his drink, but if you forget yourself, he will recollect himself. He can treat a free colored man as polite as he can a poor white one, and a class that are below
