SLNOULAB AFFECTION DISPLAYED BY A GREYHOUND . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 31 December 1853

SLNOULAB AFFECTION DISPLAYED BY A GREYHOUND . Some time since , Air . smith s men , of Rose Cottage , near Ashburne , turned up a rabbit s nest with ihe .: plough , containing four young ones . Being too young to stand the least chance of surviving , in their exposed situation , they took them home as a treat for a greyhound bitch that was sucking a litter of six puppies . To their surprise , instead of greedily devouring the rabbits , as they expected , she carried them tenderly and carefully in her mouth to her nest , and seemed to consider them a most welcome addition to her family , bestowing upon them the same fondling carresses , and offering them a share of the same support which nature had furnished for her own offspring . This the poor rabbits did not refuse , and their appeared to be no doubt of their doing well . Unfortunately , however , they were doomed to suffer death from their young companions , though not exactly in the manner that greyhounds generally kill rabbits ...

INTERESTING ITEMS . Anecdotes of Birds , Beasts , & o- [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 31 December 1853

INTERESTING ITEMS . Anecdotes of Birds , Beasts , & o- BY A 9 KETOHER . How TO CATCH , COOK , AND . EAT A LION . Wonders will never cease ! On approaching pretty near to the marshes , we discovered , to our infinite delight , a quantity of rain water , among the rushes , and were about dismounting , to partake of of it , when suddenly a large Puma , or South American lion , sprung from a rushy lair where he had been couched , and instantly fled across the plain . This somewhat startling appearance dispersed our thirst , or the sense of it , for the moment , and we turned bur horses in pursuit of the fugitive . I have elsewhere described the extraordinary skill of the Gauchoa with their lazo . On this occasion j I had to witness a new instance of it in the Cordovese scout , who presently coming up with the lion , cast his lazo over its head in an instant , and brought it to the ground , almost choked b y the running noose . On recovering himself a j little the lion seemed...

BV THE EDITOR i The result of the battle with Hammer Lane , while it f ave . great satisfaction to those who had sported their money on Sullivan , did not , however , gain him many friends , for it was the confident opinion of those well qualified to judge , tint for the accident by which Lane s arm had lieen rendered useless , Sullivan would have been defeated . This was merely opinion , however . Be this as it may , the friends of Lane were decidedly down on Sullivan , and plainly made it manifest in more than one way , and on more than one occasion . ; The manner in which Sullivan endeavored to inflict additional punishment upon Lane s disabled ami was strongly commented on , and it was thought that some fresh disturbance might originate from the agitation of the subject , and , by the advice of Rome friends , Sullivan determined to leav...

Now , let us advise you how to manage things , so that you may be enabled to pass through the day with credit to yourself , and with pleasure to those with whom you may associate . It is a great error with our young friends to enter this or that public house on first starting out , and gulp down heavy draughts of very bad liquor , prepared expressly for the occasion . Now , you do not need this liquor , you know it is injurious to you , because it is different from what you have been accustomed to , for we take it for granted that you do take a little something at other times than on New Year s Day You merely swill down this stuffbecause it is so easy to bo got at , because you can take a stiff horn , and the landlord dare not say held , enough . It is so pleasant to go in here and there and cry out— Ill take a little of your pale , or Ill try Port ,...
