New Raven Firemen's Celebration . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 23 July 1853
New Raven Firemens Celebration . Trial of Southwark Engine . The grand trial of fire engines to take place this week at New Haven , promises to be very exciting . Southwark Engine Co . made a trial of their engine on Monday evening , in William street , in front of the North Dutch Church . The engine threw a stream of water from the church up William street a distance of 176 feet , and also nearly to the top of the steeple , a distance of about 150 feet from the ground , in a nearly perpendicular direction , with one length of hose . When the Southwark was ip Philadel phia she did better than this , and we hope on the day of trial the members will work with a will , and keep up the good name of Old Southwark . W T e bet our pile on her .

- • -. « . How it was done . Though the bone and sinew of the country contributed to make the various articles on exhibition at the Crystal Palace , yet they were denied the privilege of being present at the inauguration . To deny the mechanic , the laborer , and other classes of working men this privilege , without g iving any direct offence to them , required some nice manoeuvring , but the directors promised to have it all right , aud the aristocracy and great men were told to have no fear of being brought in contact with the dirty shirt party . How were they to be kept out ! This was the question , but it was soon answered . Touch the pockets of the bone and sinew , said the directors , and not one can enter / This was the most simple , and yet the most effectual plan , for keeping the doors of the Industrial Exhibition closed against the industrial classes , those classes whose works are now tho admiration of the gazing multitude . Tho price of admittance wa » fixed at $ 10 , a...

OUR COURTS . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 23 July 1853
OUR COURTS . The Sessions . Sentence Day . — Thus being sentence day the court-room was pretty well filled with criminals and they- friends . The Judge was at the benoh , and looked very fierce . The first criminal called up was Johnny Dusendinger . Judge . — Dusendinger , you have been convicted of assault and battery , with intent to kill , a crime which deserves and shall receive a heavy penalty . Dusendinger , you have been tried b y a jury of your own countrymen , the best lawyer Ccntre-. strect affords was assigned to conduct your oase , and faithfull y has he discharged his duty ; his services cost you nothing , and yet you have been convicted . Dusendinger , your crime is an appalling one . At the dead hour of day , while the bakers throughout the city were passing the time in solemn slumber , you , like a thief in the dark , stealthil y entered the well-filled store of a bread baker—you were hungry yet Jared to steal ; you thought no eye was upon you , that you could appeas...
"Hnskeeters . " [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 23 July 1853
Hnskeeters . Nothing is more apt to make a man ( or woman either ) lose his patience on a warm summer ni g ht , than the buz , buz , buz , oi the tormenting musquito . You find yourself endeavoring to entice sweet sleep to your eyelids , but it is all in vain , you cant do it while you have a body guard of torturing reptiles about you , every now and then one of them g iving you a whack right on the face , digging his probocis into your tender flesh , and drawing the first blood , as the fighting men call it . Who ever knew a musquito to engage in a fair fi ght ? They won t do it—you can t get them to come up to the scratch at the same time you do—if you square off at them , thoy go to their holes to avoid punishment , and to await such time as you may be wearied with watching . We once got a bed-bug and a musquito in a room together , and made a match to fi g ht them both , if they would only fig ht fair—the first thing we knew the musquito was buzzing over our head , and while we ...
Complimentary . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 23 July 1853
Complimentary . The speech of Mr . Sedgwick , at that dinner , in which he alluded to the press , will create him more enemies than he was aware of . In the course ofhis remarks , he said that ho was delighted to take that occasion to proclaim that tkerr was not one single dollar of blackmail sought to be levied by the American press / This was intimating that it was a customary thing with the press , and that that occasion was an exception . What an exposition in the presence of the Chief Magistrate and other prominent men of the nation , who probabl y would not have had any idea of the system pursued by the free and independent press of New York , but for this hint given b y Mr . Sedgwick . How could he do it on that occasion ! Better had he been born a dog , than to have made that speech ! It was worse than not inviting the Sunday press to dinner . Look out for squalls . Blackmail !
