'"'"''' Talk on'Change . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 21 May 1853

Talk onChange . There was a full attendance on the board , and a good deal of feeling seemed to agitate the members in regard to the contemplated rail road from the Five Points to the Tombs . Several gentlemen expressed themselves ready to subscribe as soon as the books were opened . It was wondered if Reporters and Editors would have free tickets furnished them , or would they have to pay their own way . An alderman present stated that the . board of Aldermen and persons connected with the Press would have a free pass donated to them , in consideration of the information they would be able to lay before the public . The Directors of the Crystal Palace were censured for their tardy movements , and it was suggested that the day of opening the Palace be announced to the public through The NEW YORK CLIPPER , the following week .. There was talk about the falling off in the circulation of the Sun , and it was urged that the working men were the cause of it , on account cf the hostility ...

« • » Theatrical Criticism . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 21 May 1853

« • » Theatrical Criticism . We attended the Bowery a few evenings since to witness the representation of the p lay of Norman Leslie . It is our desire not-to criticize the performances of the leading characters , but to follow out the minor parts , and to point out such defects as are too apparent to a keen observer . In the trial scene the jury was not complete , there being but nine instead of twelve gentlemen of the jury ; this is trifling in itself , yet it has a bad effect . Again , the foreman of this jury of the nine seemed to feel the responsibility of his situation in a dc » Tee most too awful ;—when he was asked how stood the jury , he looked round upon them , and . observing that a couple of them were not standing , he looked very black at them , and in a moment they stood with the other jurors—by this time he had forgotten his part , and the question was again put , How say you , is the prisoner at the bar guilty or not guilty ? This was a solemn moment , and the eyes a...

APPEARANCE AND CONDITION OF THE MEN . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 21 May 1853

APPEARANCE AND CONDITION OF THE MEN . On toeing the scratch , there was a very perceptible difference in the appearance of the men . Broome overtopped his adversary a good two inches , and was proportionably longer in reach . His weight , we are told , did not exceed 12 st 5 lb , but of this he mig ht well have spared half a stone . There was much loose flesh about his back , chest , and ribs , and although he was evidently in rude health , he had not been drawn fine enough to stand a long day s work under such a burning sun as shone down upon the combatants during the fig ht . Broome stands about 5 feet 10 £ inches , is broad shouldered , and well put together , and , had he been permitted to take that pains with himself requisite to make him fit , he would have been about as awkward a customer as could have been well conceived . As it was , however , he was so much harassed with law and other proceedings , that he could not pay that attention to his training that he otherwise woul...

THE BOW AND THE AXE . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 28 May 1853

THE BOW AND THE AXE . BY E . L . BULWER . ONE day , as , during a short truce with the defenders of the place they were besieging , the Normans were diverting their leisure with martial games , in which Taillefer shone preeminent ; while Harold and William stood without their tent , watching the animated field , the duke abruptly exolaimed to Mallet de Graville , Bring me my bow . Now , Harold , let me see if thou -canst bend it . The bow was brought , and Saxon and Norman gathered ronnd the spot . Fasten thy g love to yonder tree , Mall ^ t , , said the duke , taking that mighty bow in his hand , and careruTly feeling the string . Then he drew the aro to hb ear ; and the tree itself seemed to shake atthe shock , as the shaft , piercing the glove , lodged half way in the trunk . Such are not our weapons , said the earl ; and ill would it become me , unpractised , so to peril our English honor , as to strive against the arm that could bend that arc and wing that arrow .

Arguing from Scripture . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 28 May 1853

Arguing from Scripture . There is no practice more reprehensible than arguing from passages of Scripture , when those passages are obscure in their meaning , or doubtful in their application . It is even worse , where , as is frequently the case , the passage is wilfully perverted by quoting only a part of it . We once saw a qniet Friend reprove a captious disputant for thus misrepresenting Scripture . It was in a public discussion , where tho speaker had endeavored to prove his position by quoting portions of different pages , and so adroitly had he worked them into his argument , that his hearers began to yield assent to his opinion . At this point our quiet Quaker arose . The friend on the other side of the house , he said , has labored to prop up his cause by mangled extracts from the New Testament . Let us make an argument in bis own way , and I will address it to him I There is one passage where it says , And Judas went out and hanged himself . There is another Go thou and do ...

Banning down the Boaster . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 28 May 1853

Banning down the Boaster . A country fellow who was once boasting about the swiftness of his horse , declared that he could outrun any thing which went upon four legs . A neighbor of his disputed it , and said he had a mule which could beat him . A mule ! said the boaster , Ill bet you a hundred dollars of that Done said the other . Done ! said the boaster . Now cover that , said the owner of the mule , laying down a hundred dollars . The boaster began to be frightened at this . He thought there must be something more about the mule than he was aware of , otherwise his owner wouldn t plank a hundred dollars , to run him against a horse . He began to hitch about uneasily . He put his hand into his pocket ; he pulled it out again ; and at last he said— I dont know , I swow , about the tarnal mule ; he may be the devil and all to run , for what I know . Do you back out , then ? Yes , I back out and treat . So saying he called in the liquor ; but declared tbat his horse could beat anyth...
