I Meaning of a Clipper . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 19 November 1853

I Meaning of a Clipper . | I have more than onoe been asked the I meaning and derivation of the term clipper , which has been so much in vogue for some years past . Il is now quite a hautieal term , at least among the freshwater sailors , and we find it most frequently applied to yachts , steamers , fastsailing merchant-vessels , etc . And , in addition to the colloquial use ol the word , so common in praising the appearance or qualities of a vessel , it has become quite recognised in the offloial description given of their ships by merchants , ect . Thus we often sec an advertisement headed , the well-known clipper ship , the noted clipper bark , and so forth . This use of the word , however , and iis application to vessels , is somewhat wide of the original . The word in former times meant merely a hackney , or horse adapted for the road . The owners ofj such animals naturally valued tfiem ^ in proportion to the ^ r ^« pabilities & Such service , amonggwhick . great ip...

BEAE HUHTIHG . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 26 November 1853

BEAE HUHTIHG . Hunting Grizzlies is becoming quite as good and desirable a sport in California , as chasing tigers through the jungles of India is to the English residents in that country . There is a strong probability , we understand , that the grizzly population , who have roamed so long undisturbed inthe forests and valleys of the Golden State , will soon be veiy much diminished , as a party , all of whom are generally considered some in a bar fight , is already formed to carry / death and destruction among them . The Alta California says :--J This party intend to spend a few weeks in hunting bear , and such other game as may present itself , manifesting a disposition to become defunct , and we should not be at all surprised to see each one of them coming into San Francisco on their return from the expedition , with one of the huge monsters slung over his shoulders . * .:.:.,, SP 0 RTIHG AT PLAOUEMIHEfl .

FEDBSTEIaAHISM . - Mickey Free , BTorth Star , The Stag * [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 26 November 1853

FEDBSTEIaAHISM . - \ Mickey Free , BTorth Star , The Stag * . Considering the many challenges offered of late , it is a little surprising that as yet no -match . has been made , by which the * speed-a » d bottom of the respective parties could be tested . The reason of this we suppose to be , is that each man is confident of his powers in his own peculiar line ; one perhaps being able to walk for a greater ,, length of time than his opponents , another being able to walk a greater distance in a shorter period , and so on , and thus it is that an agreement cannot be made . Mickey Free has challenged the Stag to walk for . six hours , — --this the Stag did not accept , but offered to walk Mickey 5 , 7 , or 10 miles , but this Mibkey did not consider it his duty to accept , until his own challenge had been accepted . In this , we consider he acted perfectly correct . The North Star , however , suddenly ; . re-appearW , in the field , after an absence of four yeara , and agreed to accep...

However ; as the . proprietor of the Course 1 on which the match took place , favors the press witli . i some of the receipts of horseraces , in I the way of advertising patronage * it is a no longer a mystery why the press haa t kept silent upon the late brutal perfor- e Ounce . _•- •- ¦ ••-fss ; s ; ... «¦ nctt ; - . jj * , v ? i - )¦ *

. -: ¦ « # ¦ - The Maine law . . This promises to be the all-engrossing topic of conversation during -the approaching session of bur Legislature ,-and it seems to be the opinion of those favorable to that measure that a bill , similar to the Liquor Law now in force in Maine , will be passedby the Legislature with , a view , of testing the effects of such a law among the citizens of the Empire State . We do not for one moment suppose that any such law will be passed , for . the Legislators ofthe greatest city in the Union will doubtless inquire into the constitutionality of the measure , and will also weigh well the arguments for and against the effects intended to be brought about by the introduction of the Maine Liquor Law ih New York .
