Cricket at the Red Moose . For the Clipper . Preparations for tht Match with ihe Canadians . —Monday , Aug . 8 . FROM A CORRESPONDENT . According to previous announcement , a portion of the members of the two city clubs , attended at the St George s Club Ground , on Monday last in connection with a few members of the Newark club . The game commenced about 12 o clock , by Messrs . Sharp and Blackburn choosing sides ; Sharp , Dockery , Wright Fletcher , Harvey and others against Blackburn , Cuyp , Wilson Richards , Rand , Burton , and others . On the side of Mr . Blackburn , Wilson was very good , making 13 runs ; of the other batters I have not much to say , except as to Mr . Burton , a young player , whose batting bids fair to place bim in the foremost rank ; he is also a good wicket-keeper , having stopped some very awkward balls . I think he would have proved an acquisition in the eoming match with the Canadians , had he been among those selected . Dockery obtained 30 runs in exce...

Marriage of Lola Montez * This lady was married on the 1 st of July last , at San Francisco , to a Mr . Patrick Purdy Hull , a gentleman engaged in the newspaper business . What will Mr . Hield say ?

AMUSEMENTS Broadway . This theatre has been closed during the present week , in order to brush up preparatory to opening for the fall campaign * on Monday next , when Mr . Josep h Silsbee will make his first appearance since his return from Europe . Bowery Theatre . This theatre will not be closed during the present season , the receipts being sufficiently remunerati ve to warrant the management in keeping it open . The interior of the house has been touched up and otherwise improved , and presents a very tasty appearance . Wo visited this theatre on Monday evening last , and though we paid our way , tt the ticket office , we were unable to procure a seat in the first circle , although they were not all engaged beforehand . The box-keeper , doubtless , reserves a number of seats in that circle for his particular friends . In the second circle nearly one-half of the seats are boxed off , and the doors of the best ones kept locked , except to admit favorites , tlniB leaving s buta sma...
TARGET COMPANIES [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 13 August 1853
TARGET COMPANIES THE APPROACHING FALL PARADES . As the season approaches for the annual excursions of our Target Companies , it may be well to offer a few suggestions that may be of service to the companies . Though target practice is now and has been for Several years participated in by a large number of our citizens , yet no official organ for the promul gation of the benefits derived from a day s sport in shooting exists among us ; neither have the papers of the day paid that attention to the reports of the excursions which the importance of the case demands . In view of these facts , we have concluded to devote a portion of the New York Clipper to the use of our numerous Target Companies . We shall endeavor to give a faithful report of each and every target excursion tbat may take place—enumerating tbe full particulars , such as particulars of dress , numbers of members on parade , names of tbe persons making the best shots , and such other details as cannot fail of being intere...

a m Beware © f Unripe Fruit . Our people should be cautious in eating fruit . Ripe fruit is at all times nourishing and healthful ; unri pe fruit will not fail to leave its mark , either by sickness or death . The great increase in our bill of mortality the past week may be attributed in a great measure to the improper use of unripe fruit . Watch your children , if you would have them with you .
A PARODY [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 13 August 1853
A PARODY Then youll remember me . When other heads in other hats Their tales of grief shall tell , In language whose distress imparts , The pain they felt too well ; There may , perhaps , at such a time Some happiness still be , If I but tell where I got mine Then youll remember me . When hatters through deceit shall sli ght Tbe bat you thought to prize , Or make it too infernal ti ght—Or cover up your eyes ! When batters thus shall waste your time , Still happy will I be To point the spot where I got mine—Then youll remember me . At fifty-seven , Chatham-street , Each eye can well discern The names of R AFFERTY &amp; L EASK , Who constitute tbe firm . Their hats alone can g ive you ease , And please the fair to see But oh ! when suited , do not cease To still remember me .
All about 2 . 27 . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 13 August 1853
All about 2 . 27 . The following question and answer was taken from last Sunday s Dispatch : — Sam bets Alf that if Hi ghland Maid goes she will show 27 . She goes . The first heat is made in 2 37—second , 227—third , dist . Bo so kind as to decide who wins . The foregoing is a question upon which much discussion has from time to time been had , and yet it has never been and probably never will be settled to tbe entire satisfaction of all parties . At a first view it would seem perfectly clear that Sam is tho winner of the wager , but tho case admits of argument . For instance—If A and B match their respeetive horses to run a single dash of one mile for $ 1 , 000 , each man virtuall y bets the other § 1 , 000 that his horse will win . Now , if they make a dead heat , neither can win , and the bet is off . So with regard to the case in question— 27 is made , but in order to win it is necessary to beat it , unless there is an express stipulation to the effect , that if tbe horse succe...
In a Great Hurry . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 13 August 1853
In a Great Hurry . A correspondent of tbe Sunday Times propounded the following affecting question to the editors of that paper on Sunday last : — At the decease of my mother , who is 52 , and resides in England , I am entitled to about £ 300 . Can I dispose of it , or make it prove beneficial in any way , previous to her death ? We think tbe fellow who would think of such a question deserves to have his name handed down to posterity . He seems anxious , for the paltry sum of £ 300 , to have his mother , sho who has guided bim through life from infancy , out of the way . For shame . Is this the way you manifest your love for money ? Wc hope your mother will outlive you , young man . How much more regretted is a parent who dies in poverty , than one who dies in affluence .
