DESTRUCTION OF THE KING'S HOUSE BY FIRE , [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 14 January 1854

DESTRUCTION OF THE KINGS HOUSE BY FIRE , AND NARROW ESCAPE OF THE ROYAL YACHT SQUADRON HOUSE , AT cowes . Our yachting friends who are familiar with Cowes , are well acquainted with the large mansion adjoining the R . Y . S . House on the Marine Parade , and formerly known as the King s House , from the circumstance of his late Majesty George the Fourth having pur * chased the same for a summer retreat when at Cowes with the Royal Squadron , some 3 f > years back . The King s House , or Debourne House , was formerly the abode of the late Earl of Listowell , one of our early yachtsmen , and subsequently that of U .. B . Ward , Esq . Tbe property has been lately leased to Sir Charles Fellows , who has since erected in frout of the same a long row of houses , destined to afford accommodation to our summer , visitors . The premises of Debourne House were converted into temporary workshops for carpenters , and contained , at the time of the accident , all tha woodwork and inte...

Horse Chase upon the Frozen Sea . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 14 January 1854

Horse Chase upon the Frozen Sea . HOWEVER singular the above title may appear , Mr . Joseph Acerbi thus relates his passage over the Gulf of Bosnia . When a traveller is going to dross over the gulf on the ice to Finland , the peasants always oblige him to enrage double the number of horses to what he had upon his arrival at Grioleham . We were , forced to take no less than eight sledges , though being only three in company , and two servants . The distance across is forty-three English miles , thirty of which you travel on the ice , without touching on the land . This passage over the frozen sea is , doubtless , the most singular and striking spectacle that a traveller from the south can be- ¦ hold . I expected to travel fortythree miles without sight of land , over a vast and uniform plain , and that every successive mile would be in exact unison and monotonous correspondence with those 1 had already travelled ; but my astonishment was greatly increased , in proportion as we advan...

YANKEE SULLIVAN . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 14 January 1854

YANKEE SULLIVAN . Life and Battles IN THE or Arranged and Compiled from various authorities , expressly for The New York Clipper . BY THB EDITOR . The defeat of Bell caused great dissatisfaction among his friends , asit was thought he could have won the fight had he followed up his advantages , for it was feared by the backers of Sullivan , while Bell had him on the ropes , that he would be forced to give in . Tho stratagem adopted by Sullivan : saved him , and askisted materiallyin changing the whole aspect of the battle . The well-known cunning of his opponent , should have induced Bell not to place any dependance in Sullivan s talk , but should have stimulated him to continue to punish his man whilst he had him in his power . Had he done so , the viotory would have been with him . Once out of the uncomfortable position in which he had been placed , Sullivan felt himself a new man , and his lucky escape made him more cautious in regard to his future movements , and he felt satisfi...

Answers to Correspondents . C , Baltimore . — In your recent account of the Battle of Sullivan and Secor , you are incorrect on many points . Mr . Secor , by all fair usnns , was entitled to the battle as much aa Mr . Sullivan was with hia late battle . Mr . Secor , in one round , getting Mr . Sullivan over the ropes , would , without doubt , have finished the contest had not the Sullivan crowd cut the ropes , and extricated him from bis difficulty . Mr . Vanderzee , the second of Secor , on several ocensionsjemonstrated as to tho conduct pursued by the opposite party , and was told for his pains to shut up , or he would get finished on the spot ; he made several appeals to the judges and referee as regards the system pursued by Sullivan , and was a ) ruck , aa he can testify . Mr . Secor , by all fair means , was entitled to the fight . We believe our report of the fight between Sullivan and Secor to be correct . As the friends of Secor were instrumental ia appointing the Referee ,...

RATHER BELOW PAR Decision on a bet in the Snllivan and Morrissey fight . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 14 January 1854

RATHER BELOW PAR Decision on a bet in the Snllivan and Morrissey fight . A decision has just been given by Judge Green , of the First District Court , which , while it is perfectly legal , shows that we have among us men , if men they can he called , who should he frowned upon hy every honest and fairdealing man . It appears that previous to the late fight between Sullivan and Morrissey , large sums of money were sported upon the event , the odds being offered by the friends of Morrissey at the rate of four to three , and so on . An individual named John Fay , supposing , no doubt , that as Yankee Sullivan had generally been victorious in his battles , he would he so in his fight with Morrissey , thought here wa 9 an opportunity to make a pile , and accordingly bet $ 75 against $ 100 that Sullivan would win the fight . The battle was fought , it will be remembered , on the 12 th of October „ last , and according - to the decision of the referee , Morrissey won the stakes . Mr . Fay ...

doubt , Mr . Sullivan has since rtgrett 6 * 1 having published , ( for no man should understand the rales of the Prize Ri better than Mr . Sullivan , ) as it has perhaps injured him in the eyes of the whole sporting community . Such cases as the above seldom occur . Though thousands of dollars changed hands on the result ofthe late fight , this is the only instance in which the losing party has sought to recover the money fairly won by an opposite party . We hope , if the plaintiff in the above case should wish to mingle in sporting circles , or should endeavor to get on a good thing , he will receive the cold shoulder . A person betting with him has every chance to lose , but not one to win . Set em up , Jakey .

The Late Fires . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 14 January 1854

The Late Fires . It seems a little strange to us that all the great fires have occurred in places where we should least expect to see them . In the old and dilapidated frame buildings , huddled together in different parts of the city , we seldom hear of a fire , and if one does occur it is soon subdued . The question forces itself upon our mind—how is it a fire can get such headway as was the case at the burning of Harper s buildings . the destruction of the Great Republic , and the more recent conflagration of Metropolitan Hall and the Lafarge Hotel ? Our firemen are not behind the firemen of other cities in activity and daring , there is an abundance of water , and yet within two months three of the most disastrous conflagrations that ever visited our city , have occurred . We hope the few remarks we are going to make will be received in a proper spirit by the firemen ofthe city , and if our views do not accord with their own , attribute our course to a desire to see the fire depa...
