p.2 Boat Race - Last evening as the prop. Calabria and the steamer Osprey were bound up, they determined to have a little trial of speed. So puffing and blowing and panting they made their way up to Nine Mile Point and on till they became lost in distance, but neither gained the advantage, the one being just about as slow as the other.
