jlprting metas . Regatta at Providence , B . I . Friday , the 16 th , witnessed the openins ° f a branch of sport which has in this State been sadly neglected . The Jay was propitious , and long before the hour appointed for the starting of the boats , tho harbor was alive with craft of all dimensions . The shore was crowded with spectators , and the steamboats contributed their mite to the number of tho lookers-on . . The wind at the commencement was quite fresh from N . N . E , but gradually died away , and . at the point of the race when the most exciting struggle was expected to come off ; a very good imitation of a perfect calm ensued . The boats were divided into six classes , according to their respective lengths ; and the purses contended for were six silver goblets , one for the victor of each class . Tho distance which the first five classes of boats sailed was about eighteen miles . The sixth class only twelve . The following is the time of starting and returning : ,-.: )...

Morrissey and Sullivan , who are matched for a pugilistic encounter , to come off on the 12 th of-October , and who have been training for the last four weeks , are likely to have their fun spoiled by our city authorities . Sullivan had been training at a spot on Long Island , but on Monday last changed his quarters to Coney Island . On that evening , however , a police officer made his appearance on the sandy shores of old Coney , and after surveying the surrounding scenery , seemed particularly desirous of making the acquaintance of Mr . Sullivan , commonly called Yankee Sullivan . Mr . Sullivan , in common with the generality of mankind , not having a great liking for policemen , and especially for those who make Coney Island their place of resort , kept aloof from this anxiouR visitor , but as often happens , tne officer would intrude himself up...

The weathei was beautiful and the attendance good . We were agreeably disappointed with the play ; it was much better than we had anticipated . The Waterville players are full of promise , and if they practised more together , would make a very good eleven : bowling is the principal thing they are deficient in . The betting was good . Clark , though he , did not get a large score , showed some good play . Clayton got 35 , and M . Ryalls 25 ; both these men made some good hits . Wood also played well . Clayton and Wells did some execution in bowling in the first innings , especially Clayton ; Clark helped them in their second innings . M . Ryalls kept the wickets , and J .

Cock Fight at Jericho , [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 1 October 1853

Cock Fight at Jericho , SEPTEMBER 23 . ( From a Correspondent . ) This was one of the most interesting fights of the kind that ever occurred on the Island . There were many persons present , all eager to seo the battle commence . At 2 o clock the birds were placed in their respective corners , ready for the fray . A Iter they had fought half an hour they were taken to their corners to be sponged off . We should think by the looks of Mr . Bunco s bird , that he did want sponging off . In a few minutes they were again at it , and both fought with a determination to conquer or die . At last it was plainly seen that Mr . Bunce would lose his money , for his bird had lost one of his peepers , and his strokes were far from the mark ; but he still fought on with a will , and at last received a gill wiper , which made him deaf to the call of time . His competitor was cut very much . Everything passed off very pleasant , except a fight that occurred between two darkies who had ventured to be...

Extensive preparations aro making to render the parade the most magnificent of tho kind that has ever taken place in New York . At the lost tri-enniel parade of the Philadelphia fire department , extraordinary exertions were made by the firemen of that city to surpass all former efforts , and right well did they succeed , for , notwithstanding the Philadelphia firemen have the name of getting up the finest processions , yet the last one surpassed everything of the kind before attempted . The first of May , 1852 , was a grand day for the firemon of Philadelphia , and much reason have they to be proud of the display made on that occasion . The citizens joined with the...

&amp;lt; fttimjj Jfan gtpartmflrt . 1 NUMBER TEN . The Cheap Daily Newspapers of Hew York . THE daily newspaper business of New York at the present time as contrasted with that of earlier days , affords a gratifying evidence of an increase among the people of a thirst for knowledge , and a more general desire for information . Previous to the year 1833 , the daily newspapers of New-York were but few in number , and the prices at which they were sold were so high as to debar the masses from participating in the benefits to be derived from their perusal , and to prevent them from obtaining that information necessary to make them acquainted with the institutions of their own government , and the past and present history of the world . Toward the latter part of 1833 , the first pehny . paper published in this city , was started by the firm of Day and Wisner . It was printed on a medium sheet and was called the Sun , f r om which the present paper bearing that name is derived . It wa...
