Intense Excitement!—Contemplated Fight . Not being able to bring the Dispatch and Courier to a satisfactory meeting , for the purpose of getting up a match between thein , owing to the weakness ofthe Courier , we have suddenl y had the good luck to bring two of our celebrated bruisers to the commencement of a match whicli promises to be the greatest event of the kind since the battle between Hyer and Sullivan . It is with the deepest emotions of pleasure and gratitude we announce to the public that Greeley and Bennett , after dodging about for some time , have at last began the preliminary arrangements for a fair stand off fig ht , to come off in the columns of the Herald and Tribune , as soon as Bennett can return from Europe , where he is now and has been for several months in tratninsr in * - &gt; company with Jonny Broome , the Tipton Slasher , Bendigo , Donnelly ,, and the most noted pugilists of the English Prize Ring . Greeley will at once go into active training unde...
What'll yon take ! [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 27 August 1853
Whatll yon take ! The Police Gazzette of last week contains an editorial article in memory of the Lantern , in which it was said that had the Lantern confined itself to American witticisms , instead of re-vamping old Enfilish jokes , v it would have been fully successful ; and then comes the following : — The Yankees we hold to be the liveliest people on the earth , and the most ready , from their almost spontaneous establisment of a government to their ¦ peefection of a Clipper .

Meanness . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 27 August 1853
Meanness . In the first number of the New York Clipper we published a joke , one of our own invention , in reference to the refusal of a Dutch grocer to receive a one dollar bill from the fear that it had been altered from a ten . One of our oity journals , unwilling to g ive us credit-for the joke , altered it in some few . particulars , retaining the main features of our joke , however , and published it in its own columns as ori g inal , and has been receiving credit for it from those papers which copied it , The Evening Post is the paper alluded to , and we think it rather small business to take credit to itself which of rig ht belongs to us . We are not acquainted with a single editor or proprietor of the , New York press , yet we think we are entitled to a little courtesy , at their hands , notwithstanding . ; ¦ .. ¦ . ..- . - ¦ . _ , ; ] 7 fP .

Mac and Lady Suffolk at tbe Hippodrome . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 27 August 1853
Mac and Lady Suffolk at tbe Hippodrome . ; The late gag race atthe Hippodrome between - the celebrated horses , Lady Suffolk and -Mac , has resulted in a controversy between the owner of Mac and Mr . Dumbbldton , for whose benefit the horses were to trot . We leave the parties to settle the question of veracity between them ; but this much we will say , that if those having charge of the horses in question permitted them to be used on the occasion spoken of without the permission of the owners , they should no longer possess the confidence of those owners , or of any real lover of the turf . It was a breach of trust , in our opinion , and has injured the reputation of die horses in a great degree , rendering them a laughing stock to the rabble , and a source of disgust , instead of p ride , to the sporting world . We hope Mr . Concklin will set the matter right &gt;

That Tailor s Wagon . ; What •has become of tbat costly wagon about which a good deal was said a few months since i Hasn t run off the track—has iti As the Yankee once said , We rather guess it costs too much expense to keep the darnd thing . That speech of the proprietor at that dinner was a leetle too ^ teep for the people , too , we reckon . At any rate , if the wagon hasn t gone to seed , why , trot it out ; perhaps there may be a stray customer who would like to ride up to that big show .
Second Avenne Railroad . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 27 August 1853
Second Avenne Railroad . 1 There is said to be an imposition practised by tho conductors on this road which should be discontinued at once , if the company desire to receive a share of public patronage . The imposition spoken of consists in the mode adopted by . the conductors in giving change . The fare , it will be remembered , is 5 cents , yet on a passenger tending a 25 cent p iece , he receives but 19 cents in change , thus paying 6 cents instead of 5 for his fare . .- The conductors count the change in the Dutch grocery style , that is , they will g ive you in change for a quarter , a ten cent piece and two cents , that s one shilling ; then two three cent p ieces , and one cent , making in all one shilling and seven pence , or in honest change , 19 cents , when you should h . ive 20 cents . A friend suffered in this way on several occasions , once on the 15 th , in car No . 8 , and on his remonstrating with the coductor , he received abuse instead of correct change . We do no...

The Tragedian and the Newsboy . A tragedian , spending a few moments in one of the public houses near the Bowery theatre a few days since , was soliloquising the words from Richard III , who saw the sun to-day ? Here itis , ony one cent , replied a newsboy who happened to drop in at the proper Q . One of the Bhoys . We have heard something of an admirable Crichton , a proficient in twenty different arts and sciences , but there is a youth in Moyamensing District , Philadel p hia county , Tom Murphy by name , and only sixteen years of age , who far surpasses Crichton in varied accomplishments . He can smoke out a shilling s worth of half Spanish per day , chew up two three-cent plugs of tobacco , drink ten glasses of brandy and water between breakfast and dinner , dance a sailor s hornpipe on the top of a fire plug , h &lt; indle a slung-shot with the most astonishing skill , and lasso a young negro with the end of a handkerchief . He also understands the thimble-ri g to perf...
That Observatory . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 27 August 1853
That Observatory . The eagerness of capitalists to make money oftentimes causes tbem to make money out of pocket Thus it is with the proprietors of the Lathing Observatory . They thought to bless the people by charging them 25 cents each admission , but the figure being rather above the north of the article , the people very wisely look at the ouside of the Observatory , and pocketing their 25 cents , seem perfectly contented with the view they have had . We stated before thb place was opened , that 25 cents was too hi g h a charge , and that unless it was reduced to 124- cents admission , the speculation would prove a failure . Our words have proved correct The Lathing Observatory is a complete Mure , the receipts not being equal to ihe expenditure .
