Is there any way to retrieve the contents of the clipboard in OSX? By mistake, I overwrote the contents, and I lost some important content.

No, unfortunately not.

Tools like the famous QuickSilver and Jumpcut can save you from this mistake in the future.

Or, do what I do, put stuff you want to save in a text file. – Wuffers Oct 15 '10 at 1:25

Nope, it's gone.

There are a couple of great clipboard managers that will help prevent this in the future though.
