Aquatic. —Hanlan (says the Evening Telegram ) will not enter a rowing shell for two months. He is picking up in flesh, and his strained sinews are relaxing. He said he could have beaten Rosa at Providence in the recent regatta if he had porservered, but the agony was so great that he was afraid of permanently disabling himself. He says that should such a pain seize him in the race with Trickett in November he would row the race out if he were to know he would be a cripple for life.
