It is nanlftetly ont of the qneation to expeot your " atroke^ to go cat with euh man of the orew; yet either he or • ■nbatltate oaght to do so. Every one ought to oopy the atyle of " the atroke^' In the "minntait partlonlar; and yet It ia quite imposalbia for a man In the bows of an eight-oar to see either his baok or evaa bis oar withont looking and, most probably, rowing ont of the boat. Indeed, It Is a rule whloh onght to be diligently followed, that eaoh nan ahonid oarefplly avoid looking at hla own oar, or a^y other objeot, bnt tha baok of hia nearest man, and oonieqnently he oannot poulbly mould himself npn the form of any one but that man. The resnit Is u follows:—" Stroke oar" rows well, bnt with • Cult, whloh we vrill call a; No. 7 oatohta thestyleof" stroke," inolndlng fault a, and eaperadding faults; No. 6 per« hapa exaotly Imitates No. 7, and tranamlts both the faolts a and i to No. 6. who. In addition, gIvM to No. 4 bis own little pet fanit e, and ao oa. From this it leanlts that poor No 2, or bow-oar, instead of being the neateat oar in the boat, la likely to Inherit all the faults of tha whole orew, if his praotloe ia oonflned to the right oar. By praotlalng, however, u I have advised, separately la the pair-oar, they, one and all, adopt the etyle of the " stroke," or of his aabstUute the waterman; and ihea when pat together, they require no " oouhlng"to make them row well together, or, at all events, only ea amonat of prutioe maoh less thaa wonld otherwlu ba' needftal.

After the above battle, .the Tipton Biasher Issued a ohallenge to Oann), to fight for £100 a aide; this Oannt deolined to do, and staked £600 In the hands of the Editor of Bell'a Lift, dularing at the aame time Us willingneu to fight the Bluha for £600 a alde,6r £800 bnt for ao leu aam. A great deal of angry eorrupou' denoe euned between them, whloh,. bowevsv, led to nought, and In the latter part of 184S a belt wu pre sented to tbe Slaaher, at Johnny Broome'a, Blalng San, Alratrut, Plooadilly, and he arrogated to Umself ^e title of Oliampton, beeavu Oaoat would'not .make a match on his terms. At length Oaant. efftred to fight blm or any othtr maa in the world for £200 a side, and Intimated that If this ehalleage wU aot aaoepted within a givea time he woald retire flrom the riag. The Upton flrom some ankaown unm, did not avail himielf of the Ohamplon'a offer, and at tbe expiration of the atlpnU' ted period, Oannt Intimated to the world that he ahonid fight no mere.' The Sluher now once more laid claim to tbe title, wUoh, for a long time, he wu permitted to eqjoy nnmoleated. On the 8th of AprU, 1847, another battle took, plaoe between Tom Paddoek and Nobby,Olarke, whloh extin galahed tha latter wonld-be hero completely.

Hia not only a good oar, bnt of Indomitable plnok, ao u to be able to get ape "apirt" whenever wanted, and to ronu an exhaaated orew by the force of his example. He also onght to posseu great preseaee of mind, in order to enable blm to avoid harrying Us stroke when pressed, and a kun pereeptton of time, so that he ahaU not vuy it more than is absolutely required. Having made this Nleetlon of a " stroke oar," the next point ia to allot to eaoh maa bla proper plaoe, wUeh eaa seldom be doae withont a few trials, bi uoertalalng the rela- tive atrength and lasting powers of tha indlvldaala com poaing the orew, there is nothing like • strong palr-ou, In wUoh tbe two men whue powers ue in qneeUoa be pUoed with the captala; and then, by palling against one another, Itla way to dia'cover, not only the atrength, bnt the pluok of euh.

Havlag, u aearlyu poasl bla, decided upon the plue whieh eaoh maa aballoooupy, the next point la to bring every man np to the standard of the *■ stroke oar" In atyle aad strength. For this purpose a waterman Is almHt Imperatively necessary, for reuona whloh will preiently appear, and onaahonld ba selected whoM style rsisemUu that of you own " stroke oar," and they (that is, the atroke aad water- maa) should, if poulble, have rowed togatheri m u to be easily snbatltnted one for the other. Now, it will be ruolluted, that la the dally routine, I have left , the that a saoond demoutratlon la required. With a voy raw orew It la better to poetpone the getting Into tha elght-oar at »U nntil the whole orew have bun aack upuately drilled, either with the " atioke"or irith the waterman; and at thla period, when they all go cut separately, tha "stroke" may wary well andertake the tnlrion of Nob. 7, 6, and 6, wUle the waterman takw Nos. 4,8, 2, and bow. If euh of these hu aa honr'a practlae,the trainer will oonsune, Inolndlng tha tima lost In altering etratohers, &o., at leut eight hoonpev day, whioh'ta qnlte enough for any man to go ttuoogh. In thla oau more time most be given by all to ruaalat and walking, and the amount of work moat ba gevaiallj apportioned by the trainer to euh; for, u the prastlaa on the' water is neoessarlly limited to an honr a d^y euh, instead of two hoars and a half, or even thrte hours, a grwter ameoDt of work muat be done on th* land la order to get the body into the highut coadltloB. By tbe above plan ItUakIt will generally be fonad that even a raw orew may be fit to be pnt into an eight- oar two or three days after flrat coming together; bat even then thay irill require the oooulonal paIr.oar praotloe whloh I have reeommendfd.

QulokBnlng on the stroke Is a very common fault la either No 3 or No. 7, and It should be chuked at onM,alnoe It sets'the whole bow-aide ont of atrcke with their opposltu. It eonelsts in these men bringing their oara out before that of "stroke," and ia euUy remedied by naklng them take more water; or, Ifnn able to do that, taking • duper hold; or.
