TRAINING FOR THE RING . : [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 13 August 1853
TRAINING FOR THE RING . : [ Concluded . ] MEATS . The only meat that , generally speaking , need be used in training is good beef and good mutton . All young meat , such as veal and lamb , all white flesh meat , whether game or poultry , are good for nothing . Tliey contain no nourishment for the muscle . Soups , fish , pies , puddings , must be left to the club-house gourmands ; they are poison to the boxer . His animal food should bo rump-steaks ( good ox-beef ) and mutton ( wether ) chops , . or cutlets from the leg , slightly broiled ; and every particle of fat cut away . We here may as well observe , that tlie flesh of full-grown animals is ever preferable to that of young ones , and that of those which are naturally fed—on grass , &amp; c , to that of those they pamper with grease and stimulants . All oily messes , melted butter , and buttered toast , and gravies , are to be eschewed ; the meats taken directl y after physicking and purging medicines have laid open the ...

Duties of Seconds and Bottle Holders . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 13 August 1853
Duties of Seconds and Bottle Holders . Is choosing persons to perform the duties of Seconds and Bottle Holders , great discrimination ought to be observed , for upon the conduct of those persons much of the fate of a battle depends . They ought to be men well versed in the foregoing rules of the Bing , which they should study with care . They should be firm but cool , and dispassionate in their demeanour , confining their attention to their principal , on whom they should constantly keep their eyes , and not suffer themselves to be put out of temper by any observations made by others , nor indulge in foul and irritating language , which may provoke retort . Where necessity arises tbey shonld offer advice to their man , and forewarn him of danger , or the intentions of hb antagonist ; but this should be done calmly and quietly , for a man is often more injured tban served by injudicious exclamations , which distract his attention , and not unfrequently lead to an opening , of which a...

CODISiOf . CAUTION TO KEEPERS OF GREYHOUNDS . —Died at Roker Baths , near Sunderland , on the 12 th inst that well known greyhound , named The Admiral , by the original 3 Iiner out of Teasdale s Countess . After death the body of the dog was opened and examined by a surgeon , who found that he had died of inflammation of tne kidneys , ascribed to the stimulating effect of raw horseflesh eaten greedily , in a diseased state , by the dog , when in high condition . It is a somewhat curious fact that the heart of the dog , which was perfectly healthy , was fully as large as that of any ordinary human being . The Admiral won the Clifton Cup at Lvtham , in 1850 , and divided several other good stakes . In his best days he was never led to or failed to kill his hare . At the time of his death The Admiral was becoming very valuable as a stallion . * »«¦ ¦ ¦ LITERARY CURIOSITY . —In the works of John Taylor , the Water Poet , there occurs the subjoined piece of laborious ingenuity , upon whi...

This mill came off , as anouneed on Monday last , under very adverse circumstances , both as regards the state ofthe weather and the means adopted for reaching the spot fixed for the settlement of the question at issue ( the well-known battle field in Long Reach ) . The rain poured down in torrents during almost the entire day , and to add to the discomfort of the Fancy , on arriving at Blackwall it was discovered tbat the boat that had been chartered by Jemmy Welsh , to convey the combatants and their admirers to the scene of action , had broken down , and that owing to the number of excursions fixed for that day , every other steamboat was engaged , and no conveyance could be obtained for love or money . There was nothing for it therefore , but to trust to chance , and the assembled multitude were compelled to make the best of their way to the trysting place , some by Gravesen...

The Poor Chinese . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 13 August 1853
The Poor Chinese . The efforts made by the Herald proprietors aud others , to assist tbe Chinese Theatrical Company to reach their native land , have so far proved unsuccessful . They do not wish to become a burthen to our citizens , by enrolling themselves in the ranks of the Alms House ; and as we are not troubled with emigrants from China , as with other nations , it is to be sincerely hoped that those who can afford it will contribute a mite to their relief . The interest manifested by the Herald in their behalf speaks well for that journal . Had the poor Chinese been able to carry an election through , the city journals generally would have stretched forth a helping hand towards them , Old Mortality especially .

Abolitionism in a New Garb . The Uncle Tom excitement is bein » *¦« newed again in a new garb , and one of oar public theatres is used as an abolition hall in which to depict the alleged tyranny 0 f the slave owners of tbe South over their slaves . Is this ri ght ? Is it proper that a fresh agitation of a question which at one time threatened . the dissolution of the Union should be suffered , to be revived in out midst by a theatrical manager , for the puN pose of putting money in his pocket , and that too , at the expense , perhaps , of bloodshed and riot f Is it ri ght that these thim ** should be—that tho Southern people who are now thronging into our city should be insulted merely to gratify the whim of a man who would make capital out of dissensions and disorders . We foretold how this Uncle Tom drama would end—alread y have tho abolition journals of New York circulated through their columns long editorial notices ofthe benefits to be derived from witrnt ing abolition plays , ...

England , fearful of trouble at home , has , with her usual cunning and wariness , urged upon the consideration of tbe Emperor Nicholas the acceptance of » middle alternative , which , whiie it leaves poor Turkey still in the power of the Czar , for future operations , gives Russia tbe chance to retreat with honor in the eyes of the world , yet leaves England and France in the position of two timid boys standing up for a fight , one being afraid and the other dare not Truly tho English lion is fulfilling the prophecy , by ly ing down with tbe lamb . .
