NEW YORK against PHILADELPHIA GREAT BOAT RACE , For a Parse of Five Hundred Dollar * . DEFEAT OF THE PHILADELPHIANS . TOMMY-, August 2 d . Quite an excitement was created in the sporting circles by the announcement that a race was to take place on Tuesday , August 2 d , between the New York boat George-Clark , and the Philadel phia boat Runaway , for a sum of $ 500 . The boats were considered by their respective owners fast boats , and much anxiety was manifested to discover to which vessel should be awarded the palm of victory . i At an early hour on Tuesday last , the Hoboken ferry boats were liberally patronized by the throng ^ of persons who were desirous of witnessing the race , aud thousands of spectators thronged the pleasure grounds of Mr . Barker , at Hoboken , to witness the start . The vessels were to start at one o clock , and sail a distance of 10 miles up tho river , round the stake boat at that point , and return ; but it was halt-past 1 o clock before the starting si...
Boat Kace . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 6 August 1853
Boat Kace . Rather an exciting boat race came off on Thursday near the Battery . The prize was a silver cup . The starting point was situated between the Castle Garden and Pier No . 1 . The boats started from the Battery , went round a stake boat at the lower end of Bedlows Island , turned : a stake boat at Jersey City , and finally , another stake boat at the Battery . About 20 minutes past 3 o clock , three boats started—the Regulator , belonging to Mr . Charles Thomas ; tbe John Wiley , to Mr . Wm . Roberts , and the Kinaile Kingsk p d , to Mr . K . Kingsland . The boats had not much wind at starting , but a little after a good breeze sprung up , and about 7 o clock they made their appearance again at the Battery , the Regulator winning , and beating the John Wiley by about half a mile , while the Kinaile Kingsland hung pretty close upon the latter .

This is the best two mile heat to harness ever madi over the Saratoga track , beating Jack Rossiter s heat of 5 minutes 44-seconds over the same course . The odds were $ 100 to $ 35 on Flora , and previous to starting became still greater ; in fact , they were betting $ 100 to $ 20 , some few being in the secret that Tacony could not trot over this track on account of it being too heavy and sandy for him , it notsuitinghis tongstride . On the other hand , Flora could trot on it as good as any other track accordingly , because of her quick and light way of stepping . Ther...

lacing la PeaasylTaiia . —Challenge MASTA iwAIN VICTORIOUS . Reading ^ Peniu , July 2 lyl 853 . Yesterday . was a great day in Reading . We all assembled to witness a trial of speed between the great Diana ( the Reading pet ) and Joe Gales . . The race was a single dash of a mile , and such an in-gathering of the people was never before seen in old Reading . From morning until the race came off it was a continual string of human beings , all anxious to p lank their tin on the old mare , the winner of thirty-two races in succession . As for Joe , there was but little known , only that he was brought from Ohio for the express purpose of laying out the knowing party . The betting was rather limited , the mare s friends outnumbering the horse s all to smash . But when the horses were brought out and shed off for the race , it was evident to all judges the horse was in top high flesh .

The match came off on neutral ground , in GUILBADLT S Gardens on Friday afternoon .

CRICKET . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 6 August 1853
CRICKET . Canada vs . The United States . In a former number we . mentioned that the first game of the home and home match between all Canada and the United States had been definitely fixed to come off , weather permitting , on the 24 th and 25 th of this month . We take the present occasion to call the attention of every lover of cricket throughout the Union to the fact that on this occasion there will be a stronger muster of the fancy than has ever at any one time taken place upon this continent , more good players collected , more science and skill exhibited , and we hope more countenance and interest in this manly and healthy amusement shown by the community than usual . The period appointed is rather earlier than was at first expected , but as our Canadian friends find it more convenient and have themselves named the slay , we hope and trust we shall still be prepared to give them a hearty welcome and a handsome drubbing . In order , however , to do this , we must avail ourselv...

The retail branch of their business has suffered no diminution this summer compared to other stores , but that is doubtless owing to the fact that they are the only hatters who can insert daguerreotype /; likenesses in the hats of their customers , a paient having been applied for by them , which gives them the benefit of this invention exclusively .

AMUSEMENTS , [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 6 August 1853
AMUSEMENTS , Bowery Theatre . There s a screw loose somewhere about this establishment , several ofthe best members of tbe company having left , and others , we understand , are preparing to follow . The reason of this is , we believe , owing to the reduction of salaries , a small item of no less than one-third of each actress and actor s salary being recently cut off . Those who could afford it , gave up their s tuations rather than submit to this rather heavy deduction ; while others , who saw no better prospect for the present , quietly relinquished all claim to the last third ol their salaries , and faced the music for a time . What baa caused this judden fit of economy in the Bowery management , we are unable to learn , but suppose the unsettled state of affaira since the death of Mr . T . Hamblin may have so reduced the funds in the treasury as to render it absolutel y necessary to curtail expenses , or close the establishment for the present . Who knows ? The National . The T...

Waterman , the builder ofthe Niagara , of New Britain , offers to try that engine against the Southwark , for a purse $ 1 , 000 , but as Mr . Waterman is not ike Niagara ( hmpaityyttfhy ^ doiftke challenge Mr . John Agnete , the builder of the Southwark . Mr . Agnew would doubtless , be glad of an ; opportunity to ^ bet his workmanship against that of Mr , Waterman . The talk about the Southwark being backward in coming forward is all talkiher challenge remains unanswered , and . probably will remain so . The Southwark will , doubtless , give the Niagara Company an opportunity of proving the prowess of their engine , if they think proper , in a short time .

Coming down Broadway just at sundown , we noticed approaching with the throng which crowds the walk at that hour , a welldressed female , apparently seventy-five years of ago , with that peculiar appearance only seen among those who oppose the Maine Law as oppressive and curtailing the liberties ofthe people—liberty to get drunk and disgrace themselves on Sunday . Just as we were passing that new and splendid eating and drinking house lately opened by Mr . Tayler on the corner of Franklin street , the old lady reached the opposite corner , and made several attempts to cross the gutter . None of the scores of passing gentlemen offered to lend her a hand , for she was no longer young and pretty ; she was ugly , old , and , we must say it--drunk . She looked up imploringly , e...
