AMEBJCAH CUPPERS . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 18 February 1854

AMEBJCAH CUPPERS . MR . EDITOR : If I were a betting man , I would most willingly cover the Ship Carpenters friendly fiver ; but I have no doubt he can be accommodated . Having seen the Sovereign of the Seas and the Marco Polo , as far as I could judge from * their lines of lightest flotation the • huJr of the former appears capable of attaiuihgahigher speed thahthat of the latter . The Chqppcd Dollar s direct statement ; appears to suggest a novel and curious fact in connection with hydrostatics , that thfc eastern and European seas offer more resistance to American clippers than their native waters . Not at all doubting the skill arid science of some of our English yacht builders , when the inspired moment arrives , they will perhaps favor us with 1 the identical vessel to whieh your correspondent alludes I do hot conceive that shy of the really fine yachts recently built come up to ; his ^ description . .

A Word to our Sporting- Friends . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 18 February 1854

A Word to our Sporting- Friends . Since we issued the first number of the New York Clipper , we have met with so many attentions from the sporling community and have been so liberrally encouraged in our efforts to establish a paper devoted to the interests of the sporting world , that we cannot refrain from returning our hearty thanks to those who have stood by us , and assisted us , whenever the opportunity was afforded them , by furnishing us with sporting items and such other matter as is calculated to please the * rcaders of a sporting journal . In this connection we might state that it will be our aim to aid all of our sporting friends , as far as in us lies the power . We would also remark that we can see no good reason why certain members of the pugilistic fraternity refuse to lend their aid to assist those who put up their names for benefits at Sparring Exhibitions . We have noticed , on more than one occasion , at benefits , that certain pugilists on being requested by the ...
