CAPTAIN WEBB'S EXTRAORDINARY SWIMMING FEAT. At the Westminster Aquarium, at half -past ten o'clock on Wednesday week, Captain Webb successfully terminated his feat of swimming for sixty consecutive hours. A few years since such a feat would have been considered impossible; but Captain Webb has proved that he, at least, is able to stand immersion for sixty continuous hours, with but one necessary rest of twenty-one minutes-taken very early on the morning of Tuesday. Ten minutes before the time was up he turned a somersault in the water, as a proof of his unimpaired physical power, and when the moment for emerging from the tank had come he turned two more somersaults in the water, then walking to his dressing-room without assistance. âAs the" Hero of the Channel" left the water the applause was deafening from the great number of spectators who had assembled. To eat, drink, and smoke-in fact, live in the water for 60 hours, is a task likely to remain unbeaten for a long time to come.
