Stanbury's desire Mils noted m same of the English papers, but as the return match with Sullivan and Harding was postponed until September, nothing conld be done by the Australian at that time, as for him to row in England oiler the close of September would have been folly. Neilson, the Mortlake sculler, will leave for England during the first quarter of the year, and it is probable that he and Stanbury will go in the sauie steamer.
