. Doings at ( fee Rtjal Oak , Barking Bead . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 4 June 1853

. Doings at ( fee Rtjal Oak , Barking Bead . NoHDAT , MAT 9 . —A most melanchol y and trul y dismal aspect did Mr . Beswick s race course present last Monday , appening more like the blasted heath on which Hecate meets the weird sisters in Macbeth than the locale of sport and enjoymont . Disagreeable alternations of hail , rain , snow , and storm were the unwelcome vicissitudes that characterized the day throughout . Several hundred persons , however , defied the hostility of Boreas and Orion—as Apx did the lightning of old—and assembled at the Royal Oak , to witness the 20 miles walking matob , for £ 25 a side , announced to come off between Spooner ( the present Champion ) and the well-known and once unconquerable Charles Westhall . Spooner had no more flesh to spare on bis corporation than the miserable apothecary who sold poor Romeo poison : meagre wcro his looks , and he seemed as if hard training had worn bim to the bones . Westhall , on tho contrary , appeared rather fleshy ,...

" A Yankee Trick . " [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 4 June 1853

A Yankee Trick . The following anecdote is strictl y true ; it is contained in a letter from a young gentleman who lately went out in a vessel bound for St . Thomas : — We were chased by a privateer off King s channel , on Sunday morning ( 13 th of March ) . The villain was close in under land , in a small sloop , with about twentyfive men : when he discovered us we were nearly becalmed ; he gave chase and came down on us very fast ; I thought there was no chance to escape except by stratagem , and having on board a man whom I could metamorphose into anything , he observed to Captain , that he had better make a gun of BUly Luly , trad give chase in return . We accordingly went to work , put a black cap on Billy s head , stretching him fore and aft on the keel of the boat , with a rope made fast to his heels so tbat we could slide bim on tbe centre of gravity freely—pointed his head to the enemy . Having rigged up a long torn , the next thing was to fire it , and this we did b y disc...

• Tbe Arctic Expedition . The expedition of Dr . Kane for the Northern Regions , in search of Sir John Franklin , and the Polar Sea , sailed on Tuesday last . Many of the friends of the gallant little party accompanied them in a steamer to Sandy Honk , where the last link that bound them to us was severed , amid the earnest wishes for their success and a speedy return . God speed the daring adventurers ! A man , on being told by a generous farmer that he wonld give bim a barrel of cider , asked the farmer if he would bring it to his house . Certainly , replied the farmer , with pleasure . Well /* said the grateful man , what will yon pay me for the barrel when the cider is gone ?

I — Wbo Sent Tbem T [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 11 June 1853

I — Wbo Sent Tbem T Old mother Bender was pious but poor . In the midst of her extreme want , her trust and confidence were in God . It was late one chilly night , in the autumn of the year , when two rather wild young men were seen passing near her cottage on their way home . One of them had under his arm some loaves of bread , which he had procured at the village store . A faint li ght flickered from mother Bender s casement . Said the one who had the loaves to his companion , Let s have some fun with the old woman . .. , Agreed , said the other . They 1 approached the f house , and peeping . into the window , saw the old woman upon her knees by the hearth , where a few embers were smouldering in the ashes , She was engaged in prayer . They listened and heard her offering earnest petitions for bread . She was entirel y destitute of food . In furtherance of their fun , one of tbem , with the loaves , climbed softly up the low roof of tbe cottage , and dropped one loaf after the oth...

SPORTINB INTELLIGENCE . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 11 June 1853

SPORTINB INTELLIGENCE . KBPOETKD AHD BU . KCTBD IO * THI CLIPPKB . HOME MATTERS . There was quite a lively time last week among the sporting circles , in consequence ofthe great race over the Union Course , for a purse and stake of 84 , 000 , and the sailing of the New York Yacht Fleet on a trial of speed down the Bay . The Yacht Race took place on Thursday , and owing to the notice of the race in the Clipper , throngs of persons crossed over to Hoboken to witness the starting of the boats . We cannol see any good reason for the members of the New York Yacht Club , as it is called , being so exclusive in all their proceedings , by refusing to extend to the regular reporters of the press the usual facilities for making a full and impartial report of the result of the Regatta . The members of the Club appear to be a crew of feather-bed sailors , whose soft bands and fair skins are better fitted for the counting-house than for the healthy and active exercises of hard y watermen . The r...

THE TURF . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 11 June 1853

THE TURF . EXTRAORDINARY TROTTING OVER THE UNION COURSE , 1 ^ . I . We did intend to give , a special report of this unprecedented trotting match , but the report as given by tho Herald is so complete , that we have concluded to transfer it to our own columns . It was supposed that there would be a great deal of fighting at the race , course , but everything passed off in good order , and the thousands of spectators returned deli ghted with the day s sport . Wednesday was a great day — Long Island was a great island—and tho crowd a great crowd on the occasion of tho great trot we are about to describe . Between eight and ton thousand persons were present , the majority of whom wero of the better order of the genus homo ; and never within the recollection of the oldest denizen of tho turf was an affair conducted with greater decorum , spirit , and friendl y feeling . The victors were joyous , and the vanquished satisfied . The trotting was , beyond dispute , the best that ever took p...

THE SEDUCER . ! Many years ago , the Marquis de St . Bric fell in love with Louise , the beautiful daughter of Pierre Marcel , who cultivated a arnall vineyard on the banks of the Garonne , i He sought every opportunity of being in her company , and by a thousand assiduous attentions won his way , imperceptibly , in ker affections . He pretended his passion was of that fervent kind which drove every object but respect from his imagination ; and vowed , could he bnt gain her reluctant consent , to make hcr the future Marchioness de St Brio . There was but one thing he stipulated ; and that was , for thc marriage to be performed in private , since he feared his father s anger , unless he could , by degrees , break the circumstance to him . Thpre was so muoh plausibility in this , that she could not believe he spoke other than the language of truth . The cloven foot had in no one instance as yet shown itself , and ahe felt convinced his affections were as pure , and as fervent , as her...

Clippings from " Old Snick . " [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 11 June 1853

Clippings from Old Snick . No Magazine affords us mora pleasure in its- perusal than the old Knickerbocker , which has just closed its forty-first volume . There is always to be found in it an unbounded mint of gonuino wit and sterjing sense . We have extracted tho following from the June No ., hoping our readers may find them as entertaining as we Jiave found them : A good many years ago , as we gather from a friend , in a certain pleasant town in this State , a descendant of the ancient KNICKERBOCKER , held the position of Justice . A case was to be tried before him , and he had , as he supposed , given out tho proper time ; when ono Sunday morning , as ho was getting ready for church , the parties appeared , and , very much to his astonishment , insisted that , that was the day he had set . He seemed considerably nonplussed at his mistake * but after a moment of profound cogitation , turned to them and said : Well , shentlemens , I cannot try dis ca * e on der Sabbath ; derfore ,...

Tne Poor Sailor [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 11 June 1853

Tne Poor Sailor How many of us , while busily engaged in the active pursuits of life , ever give a passing thought to the trials and vicissitudes of the poor sailor . Beneath the burning sun of the tropics , or hemmed in by the icy barriers of . the north , poor Jack is always the same , uncomplaining in his sufferings , and looking forward to the day when he shall once more clasp in a foud embrace the loved ones at home . It sometimes happens , ! however , that the sufferings Jack is compelled to endure are not the offspring of the fickle element , but the result of the tyrannical and overbearing usurpation of power by things styled Captains . The case which has occupied the attention of one of our Courts during the present week , affords us food for reflection on the brutality and fiendish conduct of some of the captains and officers in our Marine Service ; yet it is seldom they are brought to tbat degree of punishment which their crimes deserve , or which would be meted out to po...

Talk on 'Change . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 11 June 1853

Talk on Change . The board was chock full of the fellers , anxious to g ive in their experience touching the dangerous position of that huge pile of bricks in Nassau-street , which threatens at every moment to spring a leak and engulph in its mi ghty and overpowering vortex the heedless wayfarer . Jimmy Simpkins said that he had told the authorities to remove it , but tbey told him to mind his own business , which he had concluded to do . Steve Jinkins thought it was the duty of the nei ghbors to complain of it as a nuisance , and then it mi ght be removed . Joey Stokes said he didnt think there was much danger of it falling at present , in consequence of the precautions taken by the bill posters in sticking their bills against it , which , doubtless , has a tendency to strengthen the dangerous-looking edifice . Jonny Warren thought so too , but didn t like the idea of the bill-posters covering up some of bis bills that had onl y been posted up half an hour . Theie was a great deal ...

Aerial Trip across tbe Atlantic . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 11 June 1853

Aerial Trip across tbe Atlantic . VV e understand that Mons . Petin , the French aeronaut , who made one or two ascensions from Brooklyn , a year ago , is now busily engaged , in New Orleans , in making all the necessary arrangements for his contemplated tri p across the Atlantic . His apparatus consists of two immense balloons , the largest in the world , to which will be attached a long , slender car , called a shi p . Tbe latter is to he furnished with sails , screw propellers , and an electromagnetic engine , now building , we believe , in this city . Mons . Petin intends to start on his extraordinary jcrial voyage sometime during the present month . B y the English papers we loam that thc expected arrival of Mons .

What is ^ Re dfference between ti ppling at the Astor House and v tippling in the nei ghborhood of the Palace I Not the least particle . A person can get intoxicated at one p lace as soon as at the other , and we think it comes with a bad gi * aee from persons who have amassed a considerable amount of money from the sale of liquor , to attempt to prevent others from following in their footsteps . If ti ppling is to be suppressed , let the reformation commence with its suppression at those g ilded and enticing saloons attached to our first class hotels in Broadway , and other great thoroughfares , not at the smaller p laces , where the poorer classes resort .
