The British Frigate Leander . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 2 July 1853
The British Frigate Leander . Some complaint has been made by certain parties that the Officers of the British Frigate Leander have not received very courteous treatment at the hands of our civil authorities . Tbis may be true enough , and it is a matter of regret that the everready hospitality of the Americans should have failed to extend the usual courtesies of the nation on this particular occasion , more especially as the Leander was the bearer of Englands principal contributions to the Worlds Fair , but we do not think the matter should create such anxious grounds of censure as have been made . Perhaps it is not generally known in this city that ( his same English Frigate Leander was guilty of a most gross outrage in the year 1807 , by firing into an American coasting vessel , and killing several of the crew . We do not suppose that the recollection of this event bad anything to do in influencing our city authorities in the course they had pursued in regard to her , neither do ...

The Man and the Parachute . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 2 July 1853
The Man and the Parachute . A FUNNY SPECTACLE . A Paris letter writer under date of June 9 , says : Day before yesterday was a great occasion at the Hippodrome . Their Majesties attended the performance , in order to witness the descent from an elevation of 3 , 0 ( 10 feet of M . LETUR , in his navigable parachute . I confess a foible for aeronautics , and , at the appointed hour , had taken up a favorable position in the shadow of the Arch of Triumph . For it was evident that if there was the least breeze , the balloon could not fail to disappear from the range of the audience within the Hippodrome , before it could attain the promised altitude of half a mile . There was a large attendance in the vicinity , and doubtless the fact tbat the spectacle mig ht there be viewed for nothing , was the motive that collected it there . The promises ofthe show-bill were very fair , and a certain pomposity of language , not used in France , had served to heighten the expectations entertained . ...
