Doings at the Royal Oak , Barking -roads [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 20 August 1853
Doings at the Royal Oak , Barkingroads * MONDAY Juiy 11 . —The weather being exceedingly fine , and the bill of fare somewhat attractive , the course presented a goodly assemblage of spectators . The first race of the day was a milo one for £ 5 a side , between SILVER and CLABKE , the latter receivng a start of 30 yards . Throughout the first lap Clarke maintained his vantageground without the diminution ofa foot , but at the termination of the second the all-powerful influence of Silver got the ascendaacy , which was upheld throughout the remainder of the race , and Monsieur LArgent ran in a winner by about two feet . The race throughout was a very slow one , and Clarke much disappointed his backers . The bugle having sounded , whereby the note of preparation was . again given , WILLIAM SFOOHHR and CHARMS DURHAM appeared at the scratch , both in excellent fettle , although we must admit that Durham seemed rather too fine-drawn from over training , and not quite so up to the raarke ...

Harry South was one of those men who reveal only to their intimate friends a marled peculiarity of character . There are many such ; all indeed may be really so , for every man convinces those who know him best that he possesses a true and full individuality ; but , more than any other of my acquaintance , my friend managed to ipask a dreamy poetical imagination and a g lowing heart ,, under the appearance of a mere fashionable and hi g h-spirited man of the world .

Give him a kick—he s sot no . friends . At last , after years of delay , justice is about to be satisfied . Tho recent accident on the Providence and / Worcester Railroad has furnished a subject on which the public authorities are about to wreak their vengeance . And who is it , think you ! Not the President of the company ?—not one of the director f—not an accountable being attached to the company ! Nol It is a poor man , a brakeman , who had been compelled by the parsimonious directors to act as a conductor in order to save the few dollars extra expense requisite to employ a competent and experienced conductor . The wages allowed this poor man for endeavoring to perform duties for which the directors knew he was not fitted , amounted to the paltry sum of thirty dollars per month ! and thia is the man who will be made . to suffer for the loss of life on the Providence and Worcester Bailroad . The officers of the company have refused to bail him , and he has been consigned to a felo...
