SPORTING INTELLIGENCE [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 28 May 1853
SPORTING INTELLIGENCE BXPOBTBDAND SSLXCIED VOS THB CLIPPIE . HOME MATTERS , The Great Clipper Bace for $ 10 , 000 . When the owners of the clipper ship Sovereign of the Seas , of Boston , put forth their ehallenge to run their shi p against any New York clipper that could be scared up , the public actually thought they were in earnest , and that they meant to come to the scratch ; but when the owners of the new clipper Young America accepted the challenge , and offered to sail the Sovereign of the irjeas to San Francisco , the valiant ship-own ers of Boston made some frivolous excuse , and , to use plain talk , backed out of their challenge . If the Bosten men can be coaxed , however , to test the sailing qualities of their brag ship with those of Young America , we venture to predict that the Bostonians would ever after have their vessels built in New York .

May 20 . —This being sentence day , the eonrt-roora was crowded to exeess by all classes of persons , the majority of whom , however , just dropped in to hear what sentence would be pronounced upon the Tammany Hall Rioters . Those who had no friends were sentenced to various terms of imprisonment in the States Prison . On the Tammany Hall Rioters being called up , the Jndge stated that he did not think it would be proper to pronounce sentence upon them without the Aldermen who tried them were also on tbe bench . It had been all cut and dried beforehand , precisely as political nominations are cut and dried before an election . This is justice in New York .

?•* Talk on Change . .. . There was another full attendance on the board yesterday , on the strength of a report that the four cent man intended to make a few remarks concerning the recent attempt of a writer in the Herald to put the gag law in force , and prevent him from crying out twenty-fi-eve , self-se-ling , envel-ups for fo-ur cents . The board was disappointed , however , for the gentleman merel y stated , that the writer of the article was a man so utterly lost to all principles of honor , as to be far beneath his notice . There was considerable talk concerning . the sentence of the Tammany Hall Rioters . It was thought that the Judges were afraid of getting jesse if they sent them to prison . The effect of the exposures in Gardiner s case was commented on , and it was suggested that it would retard the rearing of gold mines for the future . The conversation turned upon the question of Franconi being among us ; some one asserting that the whole concern was an imposition upo...
Opening of the Crystal Palace . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 28 May 1853
Opening of the Crystal Palace . FOURTH OF JULY ! We give it as a particular suggestion , that the New York Crystal Palace be opened on the anniversary of onr National Independance . What more fitting time could be designated than the glorious Fourth of July , for unfolding to the representatives of all nations the industry of onr own native land . From present appearances , the Palace cannot be opened until the latter part of June , and as bnt a short time would intervene between the opening and the 4 th of July , it is to be hoped that our suggestion will be heeded , and thelatter day appointed , when there would be such a celebration of our national Sabbath as was never known before in the history of this Republic . Thousands on thonsands from every section of the Union , . would concentrate at the Great Metropolis , to sanction by their presence and applanse the efforts made by private American enterprise to compete with a similar project of the whole British government .

The Hippodrome . ITS OBIGUf , AND ITS SUCCESS , i It has been a cause of much speculation in the public mind since the advent of the Hippodrome among ns , to find out if it really is composed of tbe French company , and if Mons . Franconi is really the prop rietor . We have been at some pains to endeavor to find out the particulars for our readers , and , to a certain extent , our efforts have not been made in vain . As near as we can arrive at the facts , the following is a brief history of the rise , progress , and present success of the New York Hippodrome . When it became a fixed fact that wc were to have a Crystal Palace in this city , several gentlemen connected with different circusses in this and other cities , conceived the idea of getting up a colossal Hippodrome , afterthe plan of the celebrated Hippodrome of Franconi , at Paris . This was objected to by some , on the ground that any thing known to have orig inated in America conld not meet with tbat success which was alw...
