TOM SPRING . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 4 March 1854

TOM SPRING . LIFE AND BATTLES OF [ CONCLUDED . ] Tn regard to Spring s last battle with Langan , it . was apparent : hat the superior acicuce of-Spring won him the battle ; but wc always viewed Tom as an artificial fighter , and that , he had no natural hits belonging to him . It is owing to this circumstance that we have placed Spring in the highest place on the boxing list . Tho late celebrated . lohn Kemble was the most artificial actor of liis day , but hc was admitted by the critics to . be the greatest performer of bis time So witli Tom Spring ; he has overcome the defects of nature , and , without- nny natural requisites for fighting , he has . become tire Champion of F . n <* land . Ho has made himself master of sclf-defencn : if Tom cannot hit hard himself , he prevents others from hitting bim scarcely nt all . This , at all events , i « balancing accounts . He likewise mops t-kiHully ; gets out of danger by tlio goodness of his legs ; hc is always cool niid coll...

DAN.DONNELLY, •* .. .-. - ¦ - ¦ MCECHAMPIONOFIRELAND. LIFE AN DBA TTLE S From a work published in England in 1818 , now first republished in this country in the columns of the NEW YORK CLIPPER . This pugilistic hero , although an attractive feature in the milling circles of Ireland , had not to boast of numerous victories ; and , unlike his fistic prede cessors , the renowned Peter Corcoran and courageous scientific Mich . Ryan , of Irish growth , seemed little ambitious fo extend his conquests beyond his native soil . Donnelly was in posession of every reojiisitc lo constitute a first-rate boxer . In height 6 feet and half an inch : weighing 14 stone : gifted with prodigious strength : no lack of courage ; a good knowledge of thc science , and backed with the prime advantages of youth , being under thirty years of ago .

C . The different express agents were enlisted in . the cause of redemption ; private speculators entered the field for a chance at the pickings , and offered to attend to the delivery of tickets in Georgetown for the trifling sums of 6 , 10 and 12 T cents ; and even Uncle Sam did a good share of the work at very low rates ; in tact , the modes of conveyance to and from the scene of action were numerous , and the terms cash . As every third person you met in the street was interested in the great do , it is not to be wondered at that Tom , Dick and Harry were exceedingly anxious to know how each other had fared in the distribution ; and Susan , Jane , and Mary Ann were on nettles until the postman delivered into their h...

The Wright Burglary [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 4 March 1854

The Wright Burglary Of the thousands who have read the account of the burglary at the house of jlr . Wright , in Philadelphia , scarcely one person in ten believes that a burglary was committed , much less tbat it was attended with all the horrifying incidents so minutely narrated by Mr . Wright . It is preposterous to suppose that a man of sound mind , with a pistol in his hand , would calmly stand by and eee men breaking , destroying and stealing his property , and also see those men pais by him up stairs , where females snd children , unable to defend themselves , were lying in bed , and not make an effort to prevent it . A shot or two , at the proper moment , would have alarmed thc burglars , and brought assistance to Mr . Wright . We think the burglary will turn out to be another Barncastle robbery . In this case , it will be remembered , Barncastle , after robbing hjimself , and inflicting a few icratches on his face and hands , finished the job by placing a gag in his mouth ,...

" Sheep Meat ' s good enough for Boarders P [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 4 March 1854

Sheep Meat s good enough for Boarders P Reader , did you ever board ? No ? Then as you value your present comfort and future happiness , dont begin now . What those poor , destitute , benighted individuals called boarders are compelled to endure , words cannot express , tongue cannot tell . You who cozily sit by your own family firesides , and in your joyous feelings think the rest of mankind are equally happy with yourselves , know nothing of the privations and hardships endured by a boarder . Sheep meats good enough for boarders ! Yes , friends , sheep meat is good enough for boarders , and were this the only drawback to their peace of mind , right well would they bear up against the blandishments of unseasonable mutton . But there is a power behind the mutton , greater than the mutton itself—it is an unsavory smell . which can be scented by the boarder afar off—in fact the sheep meat which boarders roll under their tongues , not as dainty morsels , is the flesh of innocent animal...

Shooting the Apple . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 4 March 1854

Shooting the Apple . The match , said to have been , made in Orleans , by Mr . Travis , to shoot an apple from the head of a living man , has caused an intense degree of excitement , and much speculation as to the ultimate result . This is not the first instance , in modern days , that this remarkable feat has been attempted . On the 14 th of August 1838 , Maj . G . Wi Collamershot an apple from the bare head of Mr . H . Ingram , at the distance of twenty-seven yards , with a rifle . Mr . Collamer then took his turn , and Ingram , at the same distance , shot an apple from his head . It was done in the presence ofa number of respectable gentlemen , who , after fruitless attempts to stop the parties , had the satisfaction to see them come off in safety . The apples were so handsomely cut by the ball , that the juice and pomace remained in considerable quantities on the hair of their heads . This match took place in this country , and was accomplished with Yankee rifles , in the hands ...

The Target Companies of Philadel -phia . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 4 March 1854

The Target Companies of Philadelphia . These companies appear to be getting on bravely , and we have no doubt during the present year there will be a large number of excursions . The Vigilant Target Co . made a street parade a week or two sines , and presented a very fine appearance . Our Philadelphia friends must not suppose that the bad treatment received by the Frits Guard during their recent visit here is an evidence of the manner in which other companies will be received . The Fritz Guard got into the hands of a set of persons having no connection with the Target Organization here , and it is not tobe wondered at that the treatment they met with should have disgusted many disinterested citizens , who would gladly have taken charge of the Philadelphia ^ , but for the publicity it would have given to the affair . It was natural that the Fritz Guard should put the best face on the matter on their return home in order to avoid the taunts of their enemies , but the truth will out so...
