THE EXPERIMENTS UPON THE GLATTON. The experiments on the turret-ship Glatton took place yesterday afternoon off Portland. The first Palliser shot from a 12-inch 25-ton gun muzzle-loader, pene- trated the plate several inches, bat remained embedded in the armour. A bole about 18 inches in diameter was made, the adjoining plate was more or less started, and a large bolt forced off the inside. Two of the inside plates were torn from their rivets, and a large part cut off, but neither guns nor machinery were disturbed in the slightest degree. The second shot hit the Glatton turret between the ports, penetrating to a depth of thirteen inches, thus failing to get through the plates, though it loosened the bolts for several inches. The shot rebounded on to the dock. The trial is con- eidered very favourable to the turret system.
