NOLTE, Vincent, merchant, born in Leghorn, Italy, in 1779; died after 1852. He became a merchant in Leghorn and afterward in Hamburg, but went to Paris in 1804, and made several visits to the United States as agent of a commercial house between that year and 1838, travelling widely over the country, and residing here for several years at a time. He was long in New Orleans, and was an eve-witness of the British defeat there in 1815. This and his other experiences in this country he describes in "Fifty Years in Both Hemispheres" (English translation, New York, 1854). He devoted himself to literature for some time in Trieste, and in 1848-'9 edited the "Deutsche Freihafen," a free-trade journal, in Hamburg. He contributed to the press on finance and political economy, and among other works published "View of the Commercial World in 1846 "; and a revised edition of William Benecke's "System of Insurance" (Hamburg, 1852).
