VISIT OF THE QUEEN TO THE THUNDERER. On Saturday afternoon the Thunderer turret-ship, which has been lying for some days in the Roads in in company with the Lord Warden, as a guard-ship, got up steam and left her moorings for the purpose of proceeding up the Solent "to Osborne Bay, where she dropped her anchor, and in anticipation of a visit from her Majesty, who drove down from Osborne House for the purpose. Her Majesty arrived at the Royal pier soon after three o'clock, and entered the large ship's boat, and was rowed to the Thunderer, where she was received by Captain Wilson, Commander Lord Charles Beresford. and the other officers of the ship, and the Lord Warden fired a Royal salute. Her Majesty, who was here joined by the Prince of Wales, was conducted over the whole of this vast ship, which she minutely examined and expressed her great satisfaction with all the arrangements. After spending about an hour on board, her Majesty re- turned to Osborne. In the morning the Prince of Wales went on board the Thunderer, when some torpedo practice was gone through of course with blank charges. Each torpedo was charged with about lOOWbs. of gunpowder, and when the discharge took place a mountain of water was projected high into the air, preceded by a rumbling noise like distant thunder, and so Bevere was the ex- plosion that hardly a ve"et, lying in any part of the roadstead but felt a shaking or lifting up as if from the affect of an earthquake, showing the terrible effects of this newly-invented and deadly instrument of war- fare. The Prince of Wales expressed his satisfaction at the skill with which the operations had been con- ducted, which were quite a novelty to those persons who had witnessed them.
