THE COLUMBUS FETES. HCEI.VA, Wedncsdny.-Tc-day is the principal d \y u £ fcha Caiuinbus Fetes. Unfortunately a thick mist ltang3 over the river and sea, and from the shore at Palos one can seethe hulls of ships in dim outline. At six o'clock this morning, the hour at wh:ch Columbus started on his famous voyage, the caravel Santa Maria, which had been laying all night off Palos, set all her sails in order to go down the river, but there was no wind, and the vessel had consequently to be taken in tow by a gunboat. After her followed, in single file, the vessels of the Spanish flotilla, the Minister of Marine being on board the Legazpi. The voyage down the river, past the Monastery of La Rabida, on which the flags of all the American States were flying, and down to the bar took about an hour. Outside were moored the vessels of the different foreign squadrons-as many of them, at least, as had arrived from Cadiz -and as the caravel passed between the lines of ships a thundering salute, followed by deafen- ing hurrahs, was fired. Between the smoke of the guns and the mist it was impossible to recognise the various men-of-war or to see their manoeuvres from the bar. The Santa Maria followed for some distance the route taken by Columbus, but at nine o'clock returned and re-entered the river. The town of Huelva is filled with visitors, and is most gaily decorated. —Reutei.
