Death of Mr Julius.
Every aquatic reader, both old and young, will learn with regret the death of Alfred Alexander Julius, the best sculler of his day, and on three occasions, viz, in 1832, 1834, and 1835, the holder of the Wingfield sculls. Mr Julius, in addition to his powers as a sculler, was equally great at an oars end, and in the palmy days of the "old brilliant" Leander, that club had not a more distinguished member. As was Robert Coombs among Waterman so was Julius among amateurs, and long will it be we shall look upon his superior. He died on the 2nd inst at his residence, Stanley Lodge, Mortlake, while yet in the prime of life. It is possible we may recur to his doings in our next.
