Content: "The fever of speculation is at its height in Wall-Street--one of the numberless offshoots from Broadway. A Sketch we give of 'a glimpse of Change' affords a faint notion of the shrewd money-making community and of their 'cute'-looking physiognomies. The auctioneers, who have stalls all round the interior of the Exchange, decorated with print advertisements of the property they are to dispose of, are bellowing at the top of their voice and taking the bid. We took this sketch on the sly, as the profane non-commercial man is not supposed to enter these precincts; we entered the place, however, utterly unconscious of the veto."--from source periodical.
