Counterfeit on tbe Sew Quarters . Ue on tbe look out for spurious 25 p ieces of the new coinage . They have just been put into circulation , and in a short time New York will be flooded with tbem .

¦ ** . •*» Caution- Gift Concerts . Wo have a few words of advice to give our people , relative to a new species of gag . ging about to be introduced into our city . We allude to the gift concert , advertised in some of tbe daily papers . Reading the advertisement , we cannot hel p feeling tsoinething will be done , or at least that some of our citizens will bo * done . Everything is described so beautifully , and the prizes are so magnificent on paper , that tlio scheme is well calculated to entice hundreds and thousands of our citizens to try their band at tbe game . But , be careful ; dont bite too readily at the gilded bait , or you may regret it . These things have becn tried in other cities , but as yet we have to learn of their being of any benefit to those cities . Besides , as tho Art Union exhibition has closed , on account of its coming under the lottery law , we cannot see how a gift concert , wbich is similar to tbe mode of distributing prizes adopted by the Art Union ,...
Gaspee-what are you about ? [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 10 September 1853
Gaspee-what are you about ? We did think at ono time that our friends of the Gaspee Fire Co , of Providence , reallv meant to give the members of tbe Southwark Engine Co ., No . 88 , of this city , an opportunity to convince them , the members ofthe Gaspee , that they , the Soutii warkers , were justly entitled to the p rizo ^ recent y played for at the celebration at New Haven . The Southwards challenge has not been accepted , and to all present appearances , will not be . We expected better things of the Providence Firemen , but their conduct , after all that has beeu said in the papers respecting their capability to . beat any of our New York built engines , seems rather strange , and we aro compelled , onco more , to ask tho question , Where s tho Gaspee 1

Death of Polly Browu . —Racing . A letter , dated Philadel phia , Aug . 28 th , says : — Our noble pet is no more , and believe me , sir , it is a great loss to the sporting community in and around this city . Polly was matched again against Flaxy , to run 300 yards for $ .-. 00 ; also against the Kennett Square roan horse for 8600 , 500 yards ; and Diana was read y to bind a race of 500 yards ; but , as you will see , we are knocked concave .

Polly appeared to be very much distressed ; he sent for physicians , wbo pronounced it a case of poison . They did all in their power to save her , but in vain ; she died Wednesday morning , at 2 o clock . — In conclusion I would say , that jthe race between Mr . Brown s mare Mary , and Mr .

THE SKIPPER'S CABIN . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 10 September 1853
THE SKIPPERS CABIN . A Talk with our Friends at Home and Abroad Answers to Correspondents . The correct and inimitable style in which we have heretofore answered the interrogatories of our correspondents , has been the means of bringing in upon us rather more questions than we have the leisure at present to answer . However , determined not to be behind our happy brethren of the Sabbath press , we shall heroafter devote a small space for the enlightenment of all those who wish to ask us conundrums and such things . Wc think wo can satisfy everybody that we are hard to beat in finding out things , even if we have to guess at them . Here is the dose for this week : — - Jeemes . —Who was it killed Cock Robin ? This is a question which has puzzled much older heads than ours , and yet it bas never been satisfactorily explained . Our superior wisdom , however , combined with a memory unparalelled in the annals of the Christian era , furnishes us with what we believe to be the only correct...
m "They haint got no votes . " [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 10 September 1853
m They haint got no votes . The many efforts which hare been made in this city for the relief of the duped and destituted Chinese , have thus far proved unsuccessful . Why is this ? Are they not as deserving of charity as any other class of people t Most certainly . But it must be borne in mind that assistance is not generally rendered because the party receiving is deserving of it , but because the givers expect by their charity to make a hi gh-sounding name for themselves , which shall prove of immense advantage to them in all future times . But in the case of the poor Chinese the case is far different . They haint got no votes . There are not enough of ( hem to be of any use even if they had votes . This is the grand secret of the indifference of our citizens to the wants of those destitute strangers , who are now begging , yes , actually begging the Americans not to make paupers of them , but to loan them a small sum so as to enable them to reach their wives and children in thei...
Plain Talk . [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 10 September 1853
Plain Talk . Chief Engineer in his last report to the Common Council , uses tho following unmistakable language : Now , because I have publicly proclaimed an adverse opinion of the . corporation for several years , I find myself as hotly pursued as your outraged constituents have recently pursued you ; and f repeat , that thousands on thousands of dollars ofthe public treasury have been squandered , and between tno or three thousand men brought into the Department to drive me out . You are n bund of political bloodhounds , and you can do your worst The infamy of the Common Council of 1852 and of 1853 will be so deeply engraved in the tablets of history that to have been removed by it fur exposing its nefarious crimes cnn never be a source &gt; f degradation to me by discerning posterity . Rather sharp , we should think , and the Common Council owe it to themselves as reil as to the community that some action houJd be taken on the Chief Engineer s remits . What say the politi...

ar- w "Tbe Higb Price of ProyislOM . " [Newspaper Article] — New York Clipper — 10 September 1853
ar- w Tbe Higb Price of ProyislOM . It is a settled fact that the prices of provisions are unusally high , and it is also a fact that one great cause of this is owin- to the very large addition to our population , consequent upon the attractions ofthe Crystal Palace , -fee . Yet there is another cause of which our housekeepers have but a very sli ght knowledge . Oflate the producers from the country have been compelled to leave the markets , with their wagons , at 7 o clock , A . M . Very few housekeepers can manage to attend market at tbat earl y hour , and it follows that the speculators , ever on the lookout for bargains monopolise the whole trade with the country folks , the latter preferring to sell at any price rather than cany their produce back again . The speculators having secured a good stock at a very low price , at onoe occupy tbe space jnst vacated by the country people , and having theft-pie ofthe basinets , in their own hands , charge

The Whole World s Temperance Convention . This convention , gotten up as one of the humbugs of tbe dny , by asetofcrazzy headed women , has passed off without doing the last damage to its projectors or to our fellow citizens at large . We are glad of this . Wo cannot be too watchful of the doings of the women , especiall y of insulted women , such as Mrs . What-you-call-her , and so on . Old Morality , of the Tribune , has managed to become quite a favorite with these men-wo-men . We must have our eyo upon hira . There s no knowing what he s after .

The American Tacht Sylvie . By reference to another part of this paper , it will be seen that the American yacht Sy lvie bas suffered a defeat in her first contest with foreign yachts . It is not to be supposed , however , that this will be the case again . In a first trial it is extremely difficult to make all things work well . The owner , wc see , immediately challenged tho victorious yacht to a trial of speed , which we hope will be accepted .
