THE CHANNEL SQUADRON. The Central News Portsea Correspondent tele- graphing at iiocln s:¡,ys :_co Up to the present nothing further has transpired with regard to the destination of the Neptune and Sultan, two of the vessels coinPl'lSin" 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 fr6m each of the vessel 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 be ^necessary to have to call on the flaership to com plete the vessels' compliment. As the men's leave in the ordinary course of events would expire on Wednesday, and as the Neptune leaves for the Spithead on Tuesday morning, and the Sultan on Wednesday, there will be adequate time for the late comers. The Northumberland, upon which Admiral de Horsey hoists his tlag, is expected here from Plymouth to-morrow co turn over the crew of the Minotaur, which is the tbgship of the squadron, but is now undergoing repairs of her boilers, by the officers of the vessel lit 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 Admiral "de 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 original ly intended, his arrangement was to meet the Agincourt and Achilles off the Eddy- stone Lighthouse, after which the fleet s dates were to have fceoo, 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 6th, Caghz: 11th, Gibraltar 21st. _n- | 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 prepare for sea in consequence of a decision taken at Saturday's Cabinet Council. [ DAILY NEWS TELEGRAM. J 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 a iteration in the original programme by which the squadron are to be ready to proceed to sea on Friday next. To day's Standard says ITp to Sunday evening no information had been officially received at Devonport as to any alterations in the pro- gramme of movements of the western divi8;on 0f the squadron, which has been wintering in tjje Hainoa/.e. The men will return from leave to- morrow, as pre-arranged, and the Northumber- lanli will leave on Tuesday for Portsmouth, where Admiral de Horsey will hoiat his flag. The Asrincourt and Achilles will, so far as it is now known, proceed on Friday to meet the eastern division off the Eddystone, and the fleet will then proceed to Arosa Bay as arranged. received a severe blow.
