They put then servants into livery and emblazon the panels of their carriages with heraldic devices in which coronets and other insignia of nobility and even Royalty Are visible. Some have purchased property abroad and Call themselves by the Well sounding foreign name others have adopted the names of Noble families and. Some have even gone so far As to assume foreign titles which they use when abroad and1 with the crests and armorial bearings of which oven at Home they stamp their note paper and decorate their dinner Tho demand has become so extended in this direction that two heralds offices have actually been opened in a fashionable p Urt of new York to moot it where coat of arms crests and mottoes May be obtained to suit the name taste rank and Pedigree of the purchaser Blackwood s Magazine.

It passed the House with i Rush and was then log rolled through the Senate by the members of Tho House. No party politics entered into this vote. This is noticeable that whenever there is any stealing to be done in which Congress can assist by legislation no party politics is discern Noble but there is always just enough democrats and republicans voting together to pass Tho Bill what Over it May be. In 1877 the. Bland River Bill was passed Over Hays veto the same Way and for the same purpose robbery. That is what the president thought of this Bill.
