I - ; i ^ fo gM &amp; j ^^ Another accident at the slaughter-house the other evening ; but ~ everything is , keptso quiet at this place of amnsement , that but very little notice is attracted by it . ¦ It ; is said that one of the ballet girls was so seriously injured that she now lies in a very precarious situation .. If a person is injured by the falling of a brick p ile , by being run over by a stage , or falling into an excavation , the authorities at once take cognizance of it , and the proprietors are made to answer . At the Slaughter-house , however , numerous accidents have already taken place , and yet they have hardly been noticed . When the seats foe the audience give . way , and kill a score or two , perhaps something will be done to remedy die like evil in future . The following we copy from the Daily Times : SEBIOUS ACCIOXNT AT THB HlPPODKOMB . On Friday evening , about ten minutes previous to the commencement of the performances at the Hippodrome , an accident...
" Bny A flomestead . " [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 2 July 1853
Bny A flomestead . Buy a Homestead , say long advertisements and handbills circulated among the poorer classes for the sake of defrauding them of some of their hard earnings . Don t you do it , say we . It is but another building association concern , ori g inated by heartless speculators , not for the benefit of the poor man , but for their own monied interest . Look at those handbills , circulated through the medium of a portion of the Sunday press , see how nice everything is made to appear on paper , with pictures and maps , a beautiful stream of water flowing near the grounds , with a beautiful mansion on the banks , the said mansion to be given away te the purchaser who is lucky enough to draw tbe said lot and mansion , when the lottery takes place . How many poor individuals were defrauded of their money during the building association excitement a few years since , and how many of them were glad to leave those associations before their losses became greater ! Is the homestea...

The Maine Law . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 2 July 1853
The Maine Law . Its Supporters and Its Opponents . The Maine Liquor Law has alread y passed one branch of our State Legislature , and there is no possibility of doubt but that it will pass the other branch , and then it will be brought before the people for their approval or disapproval , at the fall election in November next .- In view of this fact , the people should ponder well before they conclude to give their sanction to such an overbearing and arbitrary law as this has already proved to be in those States where it has been tried . The constitutionality of the law is disputed by many gentlemen , whose legal position enables them to obtain such facts bearing upon the case as tend to convince them of its inefficiency and uselessness for the suppression of those evils it is intended to reform . In a case brought before one of the judges in the State of Maine , it was decided that the law was unconstitutional , and in fact a nullity ; and thus it cannot fail of being so decided by...

Frontispiece for the Worlds Fair . It has been suggested , and the suggestion meets with general favor , that arrangements be entered into with Barnum , to get his consent to have himself placed over the principal entrance to the Crystal Palace , as the greatest specimen of American manufacture to be found in this country .

Shall wc have a frontispiece to the Worlds Fair ? Dutell .
Monsters . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 2 July 1853
Monsters . Our papers will soon be flooded with editorial and other notices , puffing up Julien aud his band of foreigners . Don t believe all that may be said in their praise , however , it is manufactured to order , at so much per line , and is intended for the edification of us ignorant Americans . Greasys opera troop will commence the newspaper crusade before long , but it is to be hoped that our injured and insulted citizens will give this Italian troop the goby . Salvi soaped and lathered us , until we had to dip into him , and now we are threatened with another invasion ; look out for them , you who are opposed to foreign airs .

Effects of tbe late Heat . The bill of mortality for the past week , shows the extraordinary number of five hundred and sixty-one deaths , an increase of two hundred and thirty-two deaths over the preceding week .

Talk en 'Change . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 2 July 1853
Talk en Change . Owing to the great fire up-town the other evening , ashes have become p lenty , and lumber more scarce . Gold and silver continue scarce , and in great demand , notwithstanding tiie recent new coinage supply from the Mint The warm weather had a tendency to make a great demand for the Mint in New Tork , but as it cannot be removed -from Philadelp hia at present , we had to content ourselves with the mint in julip , which wasnt bad to take . A gentleman stated that Captain Maloney had been indicted by the Grand Jury for cruel treatment to bis crew at sea . It was hoped that the merchants would again stand by him , and see that he . escaped the meshes of the law . Sensation . A poor old worn-out sailor applied for a little charity , but he was given in charge of a policeman . It was suggested by a political gentleman present , that any father attempts to sentence the Tammany Hall rioters would be useless , as a committee was about to be appointed to test the question o...

*¦ : • nS - fimffi ^ ifiwfc- ¦ Several of eur dty papers are finding fitult with the numerous refreshment honses , &lt; fcc ^ in the nei ghborhood of the Crystal Palace , and some of themsay what will foreign visitors think of us f This is the great objection . Foreigners will not like it , and it will lessen us as a great people in the eyes of those foreigners . We do not think our English visitors will make much objection to the beer-houses around the Palace , for nothing pleases them so much as a mug ofalf audalf . Besides , if we allow the business to be monopolized by a few , our citizens will have to pay veiy dearly for their refreshments . Competition is the life of trade , and as the vicinity of the Palace will be thronged during the summer by persons who cannot afford to pay a high price for little luxuries , we go in strong for taking the business out of the hands of the few , and dividing it among the many . Let those persons who keep refreshment places near the P...
