"One of the illustrated papers last Friday came out with an illustration of the submarine boat attacking the Magenta. Everything is "all there," but, unfortunately for the drawing's internal evidence of accuracy, the Magenta appears with two heavy military masts. As a matter of fact her after mast is only a slight signal pole; and this throws the submarine part of the business under suspicion. Yet some business-like pictorial record of the experiments would have been more useful and interesting than all the glowing and golden accounts that have been published."
