Firemen ' s Escorts . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 12 November 1853

Firemen s Escorts . What s the matter with our firemen . Several companies from otjier cities have lately visited us , and , except in one or two instances , no escort has been gotten up for their reception . Surely our Ncw York firemen are not behind thc firemen of Philadelphia , Baltimore , & c , in hospitality , and yet no company visits those cities without a strong turn out of the firemen to extend to their visitors a true fireman s welcome . Our neighbors of Philadelphia have full as many visitors as our own firemen , and yet they turn out on every occasion to receive them . It surely cannot be any notions of economy that keeps our firemen from bidding visitors welcome , for no men are more liberal than thcy . We fear there is too much jealousy in the department , and if they wish to retain the hospitable name they have always borne among thc firemen abroad , our firemen should be more attentive to visitors .

YounglMorality . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 12 November 1853

YounglMorality . Wc did think Old Morality , of the Tribune would be able to superintend the teaching ofthe Gospel and Morality in this modern Sodam and Gomorrah , but we find he is unable to the task . We therefore have engaged Young Morality , ofthe Daily Times , to assist his * elder brother iu the work of Reformation , but we think he is too fond of indulging in funny things to be of much service to the good cause . Only think of his ordering the inspector of streets to enter the houses of our citizensfaud seize upon every piece of nude statuary , every painting exhibiting the fair proportions of human nature wi - out the incumbrance of $ 5 suits or coffee bag petticoats , and destroying them or making another Art Union Exhibition of them . It musl be one of his jokes , however , he is so full of them that really it is difficult to understand when hc is in earnest . Go it , Young Morality .

The daily crime out at one endof the week , and went in at the other . It was too mucli of a good ( . ) thine . The weekly was so much injured bythe daily , as to lead to serious fears for its recovery .

The conductors of our most enterprising and popular newspapers of the day , thinking the importance of the subject demanded their attention , and supposing likewise that the public interest was fully awakened to the benefits likely to accrue from a full development of the matter in all its various phases , dispatched confidential and trustworthy reporters tothe residence of JudgeEdmonds to ascertain from personal observation and experience if this spiritual dream was in reality all a dream , or whether it was the offspring of a diseased and disordered imagination . The results of those interviews have been made known to the public through the mighty machinery of the press , until the effects cr...
