While the different states of tho Union have been contributing money for the relief of the sick and destitute in * New Oilcans , the kingdom of New Jersey has not yet contributed the • first red cent This , we suppose , is owing to the powers that be , the Camden and Amboy Railroad Company , who , like Alexander Selkirk , ; imagine themselves * y : •; , ,: ; Monarch , of all thty ¦ urvey . * and still adhere to the miserly notion , Get all you can , keep all you get Jerseymen I in the namo of mercy , and as you yourselves hope for mercy hereafter , ( though how you can expect it , wo don t know , ) oj &gt; en your purses for once , and send a donation to the city of the dead .

Come , wake up , show the strangers at present in the city what our New York built yachts can do . . 9 » Chicago Fire Company . The Eed Jacket Engine Company , of Chicago , arrived here on Monday last , on their way to Providence , to take part in the celebration on the 31 st , but as a postponement had taken place , our Chicago friends determined to see the elephant in New York , which we have no doubt will please them rather more than a trip to Providence . Some of our firemen took the strangers in charge , ( no notice having previously been received of their coming , ) and showed them the principal objects of attraction throughout the city , including the Crystal Palace , th...

There was a strong muster of the magnates of the Turf , and we also noticed quite a numberof distinguished visitors from abroad , who seemed to take much interest in the sport . The number of carriages on the course was unusuall y great ; in fact , almost every article on veles that could be hired , begged or borrowed , was brought icto requisition , and we should think ( this , of course , is mere conjecture ) tbat nothing was left in our - vardant city bu...

Philadelphia still ahead ! [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 3 September 1853
Philadelphia still ahead ! At a meeting of the Board of Commissioners of Southwark , Philadel phia , on Thursday evening last , the following formed part of the proceedings : A petition was read from the citizens of Union alley , asking permission to chain up Union alley , in consequence of the sickness of a young man who recently fell from a building . A debate occurred upon the right to grant such a privilege . A reference to the Police Committee prevailed . For the benefit of our New York readers it may not be out of place to mention that Union Alley is a small street , the residents of which * are principally busy old women , who meet in the middle of the street at morning , noon and night , with broom in hand , to discuss the affairs of the district , or to slander some poor unfortunate being who may be unlucky enough to incur their displeasure . If one of the residents happen to have a dish of liver aud onions for breakfast , it is soon known from ono end of the street to the ...
Degradation of the Press . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 3 September 1853
Degradation of the Press . The Sunday Atlas , in alluding to the practise so common with the press of joking about Greeley s old white coat , -fee , says : The press was instituted for nobler purposes than those of publishing to the world the personal appearance , or private habits , of any one or more of ita conductors . True enough . The press was instituted for nobler purposes , but by the cringing servility of its conductors it has been degraded to tho level ofa common stock-jobbing concern . It can be bought and sold , without any regard for those noble principles for which it was instituted . Will the press be honest enough to confess to this weakness . Taking in Strangers . Our city is now literally packed with human beings , a greater number being in New York than was ever known before . The hotels are full , boarding houses are full , and we were going to say the markets are full . Strangers are being Uken in and done for beautifully , and the sharpest tradesmen are doing t...

More ROOM . To those who have visited tbe extensive Carpet Depot of Hiram Anderson of 99 Bowery , it must have been a matter of surprise how such a vast establishment could be weli supported .
