THE GREAT NAVAL REVIEW. On Thursday evening (1st inst.), the Lords of the Admiralty arrived at Portsmouth, and proceeded on board their yacht, the Enchantress, which was lying alongside the dockyard. The Spithead fleet, which numbers over 100 ships and is manned by more than 23,000 men, is now completed, the only ship of any importance that has come to grief being the Sharpshooter, which will, in consequence of a boiler explosion, be unable to take part in the inspection and subsequent manoeuvres. On Friday the Lords of the Admiralty pro- ceeded to Spithead, and made an inspection of what is generally regarded as the finest fleet that has ever ridden English waters. The twelve vessels comprising the German squadron arrived at Dover on Thursday, with the German Emperor, the Royal yacht being in the centre of the ironclad escort. They did not remain off Dover more than an hour, and then proceeded westward. Salutes were fired by the squadron and by the Royal Artillery at Dover.
