THE CHANNEL SQUADRON. I The Central News Portsea Correspondent tele- graphing at noon says:—" Up to the present .nothing further has transpired with regards to the destination of the Neptune and Sultan, two of the vessels comprising the Portsmouth division of the channel squadron, or the reason of the sudden re- call of their crews, and instructions to prepare at once for sea. About two hundred men from each of the vessels were on ten days leave, and the notices issued by placards and telegrams yester- day calling upon them to return to their respective ships by 1.30 to-day. It is believed that the majority will turn up, and if they do not, at the time specified, it is not thought likely that it will bp necessary to have to call on the fiaErships to complete the vessels compliment. as the men's leave in the ordinary course of events would expire on Wednesday, and as the Neptune leaves fcr the Spithead on Tuesday morning, and the Sultan on Wednesday, there will be adequate time for the late comers. The Northumberland, upon which their admiral De Horsey hoists his flag, is expected here frum Plymouth to-morrow to turn over the crew of the Minotaeur, which is the flagship of the squadron, but now under repairs of her boilers by the officers of the vessels in question. It is not believed that the original programme of the fleet will be altered or deviated from. but that the expediting of the squadron's removal from harbour is to facilitate the getting on board of powder and shot, as the shortness of the day makes this occupy more time than ordinarily, and also that AdmiralDe Horsey, not having yet had the fleet in movement since his command, is anxious to get them together before starting on the cruise. As was originally intended, his arrangement was to meet the Asdncourt and Achilles off the Eddy- stone Lighthouse, after which the fleets dates were to have been, and are now, as there has been as yet no cancelling order:-Arosa Bay January 15th, Vigo 26th, Madeira February 12th, Gibral- tar 23rd, Palma, Majorca, March 8th, Caghzi 11th, Gibraltar 21st. [" SPECIAL TELEGRAM.] The Admiralty authorities deny that any fresh orders were issued to the Channel fleet on Satur- day, and they state that as soon as possible an official contradiction will be issued with reference to the reports as to the fleet having been ordered to prepaxo; for sea in consequence of a decision taken at Saturday's Cabinet Council. [" DAILY NEWS TELEGRAM.] PLYMOUTH, Sunday night.—Enquiries made to- night do not elicit that there is any ground for the statement that the officers and men of the Channel Squadron have been suddenly called from their holiday as the result of Saturday's Cabinet Council, and in order that the squadron may at once be despatched on some special mission. The rumour seems to have originated at Portsmouth. Nothing is officially known at Devonport of any 10 alteration in the original programme by which the squadron are to be ready to proceed to sea on Friday next.
