— -0 THE BOAT-RACE ON THE TYNE.—ACCIDENT AND Loss OF LIFE.—On Monday the boat-race between Kelly and Chambers for the championship came off on the river Tyne. Both men looked well prepared for the contest. There was a good start; Kelly went off with the lead, and after some slight fluctuations maintained I it throughout the race. Chambers rowed satisfactorily, but proved unequal to his antagonist's aquatic powers. Kelly won by 150 yards. The race was universally con- sidered to be a hollow affair Chambers' best days are be j lieved to be over, and from the first his success was doubt j ful. At starting the betting was equal. The assemblage of spectators was very large. A sad accident occurred by j the giving way of a gangway by which several lives were lost. Some bodies have been recovered in the river.
