The Bing at Albany . Hatch for $ 100 fought near Albany , [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 24 December 1853
The Bing at Albany . Hatch for $ 100 fought near Albany , BETWEEN ED WEBB AND HUGH McGUIBE WEBB THE BEST MAN . ROUGH AND TUMBLE . The following account of a fight in Albany on the 17 th inst # is sent us by a correspondent . Although it was expected the affair might prove a fair ring fight , it turned out a battle of the rough and tumble order . The usual quietude of the Albany fancy was subjected to some agitation on Saturday , the 17 th inst . Among the admirers of self defence , it was pretty generally known that a match for $ 100 had been made between Edward Webb , better known by the appellation of Butcher Webb , and Hugh McGuire , familiarly recognized as the Fish Slip Bully , and that Saturday had been selected as the day to test the superiority of the two men . Between the men and their friends , it had been agreed that the matter should be kept in secresy , but at an early hour on Saturday morning , it was evident from the unusual excitement existing at the Centre Market , ...
" The Turf [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 24 December 1853
The Turf RED HOUSE PLEASURE GROUND—TROT - TING — SATURDAY , Dec . 17 , 1853 . » -A purse of $ 25 was trotted for over this course , mile heats , best three in five . The day was delightfully soft and warm for the season of the year . The scenery around this course is far more picturesque and deversified than at the Long Island tracks . There are two or three essential elements of landscape beauty ; there is a diversity of hill and dale , undulating lilies of the beautiful ; A few rooks , and water enough to relieve the eye and give variety to the scene . The course is half a mile , horses having to go twice round to make a mil e . It was heavy , and not possible therefore to make such good time as on the Union Course , but still it is by no means a bad course . The attendance was very good and every body seemed to enjoy tho Bport . All went as merry as a marriage bell . This was one of the closest and best-contested trots that ever took place , no less than seven heats having being ...

THE HERAIaD LIBEL . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 24 December 1853
THE HERAIaD LIBEL . The result of the late trial of Jamas Gordon Bennett ^ for publishing libellous matter concerning Mr . Edward P . Fry , seems to have given great satisfaction to a number of daily and weekly journals and yet those journals exult over the defeat of Bennett , not because they consider the subject matter in dispute libellous , but because they have an opportunity of slandering a man whom they wish well out of their way , and they take this pretext for conjointly endeavoring to destroy him , We do not believe that another man could be convicted on the same evidence , nor do we believe that those editors , who are now so lustily striking whilst their victim is at a disadvantage , would have been so loud in their praise had any other publisher been the convicted party . Wo think they would have changed their tactics , and would have battled manfully for the liberty of the press , and would have united as one in defending one of the most important righta guaranteed by t...

THE SIFFEBEHCE The Milh onaire ^ -Tho Poor Trader . The fin whioh visited tha great Printing establishment of the Brothers Harper a short time since , destroying thousands on thousands of dollars of property , and turning destitute upon the world hundreds of poor and deserving working people of both sexea , is not without its moral , and affords us a striking example of the truth of the old saying , that . Man s inhumanity to man , Hakes countless thousands mourn . No sooner was it known throughout this eity that tha still wealthy house of Harpers had met with a serious loss , and that their extensive establishment had been razed to the ground , than the various Insurance Companies in which that property had been insured , did not wait to he called upon , mind you , for the amount of their losses , but actually sent word , some while the fire was yet burning , and others on the day following , that the Harpers could have their money at any moment they saw fit to send for it .

" Sweet Home . " [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 24 December 1853
Sweet Home . Christmas is a day when the members of a family meet together , . and interchange the civilties of the festive season . Those , who , perhaps , have been severed from home , from parents , brothers , sisters and friends , by the cares of business , endeavour to spend that day , above all others , with the Old Folks at Home , and tis then that the fireside hearth brings back to memory pleasant thoughts of Home , Sweet Home . Speaking of Home , reminds us of that beautiful ballad , so familiar to ns all . An intimate friend of John Howard Payne , the author of the song referred to , says the life of Payne was . one of remarkable vicissitudes . Of ah evening , says the friend referred to , we would walk along tho streets , looking into the lighted parlours as we passed . Once in a while we would see some family circle so happy , and forming so beautiful a group , that we would both stop , and then pass silently on . On such occasions he would give me a history of his wande...
