"Do at we io . " [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 21 January 1854

Do at we io . It is a great fashion with our theatre and concert-going friends to begin -to leave their seats at places of amusement a short timo previous to the closo of the entertainments . Now this is very bad manners , and shows a want of good breeding on the part of persons thu » trespassing upon the rights of thoso who wish to remain until they have seen enough . How different the case at a prize fight . There , not a tingle individual would think of budging from his position until the curtain had dropped , or atleast until the whipped man had dropped . Our pugilistic friends would sooner see the end ot a fight- thau the beginning , principals as well as spectators . We hope those who feel the force of oar argument , will profit by it , accordingly .

YANKEE SULLIVAN . Life an d Battles IN THE $«3*3M*j OP Arranged and Compiled from authorities , ^ - ^ - Y for trgj . A * r ~ cv > Yor .. Clipper . nv THE EDITOR . The battle between Cannt and Sullivan terminated in a manner somewhat similar to the recent fight between Morrisscy and Sullivan . That Sullivan had the best of thc battle certainly none can deny . Caunt disappointed the hopes of his friends , who had expected much better skill in the art , than he displayed . Sullivan on the contrary , f corned welt tip to the mark , and showed his superiority over his more weighty opponent . There was a cessation of hostilities at this tirno between thc members of the pugilistic fraternity , owing to the commencement of the preliminary arrange ments for a grand Fct-to between Uncle Sam and John Mexico . Those who had been enemies * in the ring before , wore now anxious to stand up together in behalf of Uncle Sam , who had always been a father to them . Sullivan , however , sti...

National Theatre . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 21 January 1854

National Theatre . The drama of Uncle Tom s Cabin is the feature at the National Theatre , and still continues its popularity . Little Cordelia Howard , notwithstanding that others of more mature years have attempted the character , is as yet unequalled in her delineation of Eva .

The Bing and the Pulpit [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 21 January 1854

The Bing and the Pulpit MEEK AND LOWLY SHOULDER HITTERS . The Boston Times gave a few days ago , a long account of two ministers at South Boston , who got drunk at the late election , and then got to fighting . After pummeling each other until their eyes were blackened , and their noses bled , the meek and lowly shepherds were parted , and a doctor sent to dress their wounds . If the clergy are going into the ring , and , instead of shouting the glories of the Gospel , the Psalms of David , and Dr . Watt s Hymns , adopt that classic vocabulary _ that commences with first blood , closed peeper , planted a staggerer in tho breast , & c , we would like to know what is to become of our pugilistic friends , who have lately created such a sensation ? They will be obliged to adopt prayer meetings and white neckcloths . This reminds us of a little incident that happened lately .
