Arrival ofthe American Clipper Sloop Silvie at Havre . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 13 August 1853

Arrival ofthe American Clipper Sloop Silvie at Havre . We learn from one of the Cowes pilots , that on Friday , the 8 th , he fell in with the long looked-for American yacht , Silvie , sloop-rigged , and under jury-rig , off the Start , proceeding for Havre , having a fair wind , and , to use the pilots expression , going like knives a-grinding . The yacht , we have since heard , has safely reached her destination , where new spars had been previously forwaj-ded for her . She is to be refitted at Havre , and from thence proceed to Cowes to be introduced to us as the novelty of the season . Her presence here will , no doubt , excite great interest , such as we witnessed in our waters by the presence ofthe once celebrated America . We are not disposed to take for granted all we hear at haphazard , although we have made a wonderful alteration in our system of yacht building since this event . Yet , when we are told that the Silvie will walk easily round the America , and that she is di...

THE LILY HAND OF RIMINI . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 13 August 1853

THE LILY HAND OF RIMINI . BY L . Nina lay in her bed . How bravely and Cytherea-like she became it , angels may tell better than mortals . The clock had struck twelve . Nina had laid down her book—the drowsy charmer she bad called to her aid to lull her to sleep . The flame from an alabaster lamp showered down its chaste , unflickering beams , wooing , soothing . The last embers died away on the hearth , diffusing their genial warmth without a crack or murmur . Not a curtain was seen to heave , nor a breath to stir the damask of that silken apartment . Nina s kind hosts were fully aware ofthe treasure they harbored under their roof . More than maternal care had presided over her comforts , strewn her couch , smoothed her pillow . Her aunt herself , the lady of Professor Ma = cagni , had shown the lovel y girl to her chamber , disrobed her , trusting no ono else with the offices of her waiting maid . She hung in fond admiration over her as she bade her good night , pressed her matron...

HOTS ON SPARKING AND ON THK | ART OF ATTACK AND DEFENCE . IN offering a few suggestions on the healthful and invigorating practice of sparritig with the gloves , and on ¦ * the art of attack and defence as pursued in modern times , the editor begs Uiat he may be acquitted of assuming to himself a knowledge , cither theoretical or practical , superior to others . He disclaims being able to communicate information whichis not already widely disseminated and generally understood by the admirers of old English boxing ; but at tho same time ho entertains a belief that , by affording to tho novice some insi ght into the tirst principles of the art , he will enable him to acquire more readily an acquaintance villi its scientific advantages . That a mau can bo made a perfect sparrer or a perfect I hoser any more than he can acquire a perfect knowledge of fencing , dancing , or any oilier bodily accomplishment , by means of Ivok instruction , experience has shown to be at least problematical...
