The Newcastle Daily Chtonicle of April 4, writing in regard to the great sculling match which had occurred the preceding day on the Tyne, says of the winner : —“ Hanlan demonstrated today that he no other man ever seen on this river has done, and we are bound to admit that he has dethroned the traditional monarchs of the oars. His great reach, the machine-like . movement which he displays when in action, the generalship in rowing, his ' singular personal strength, and his high intelligence, all join to make him such a rower as, in our opinion, has never . hitherto been known, and many years

may pass over before another proficient ' of such surpassing excellence is seen. , It would appear as if all those who have studied his style of rowing have

•yet failed to secure his secret, which, - after all, is the combination of the ,'.whole of the excellencies of style and power which we have just mentioned.”
