THE CHANNEL SQUADRON K ORDERED TO PREPARE FR SEA ORDERED TO PREPARE FOR 8EAB PORTSMOUTH, Sunday.—Sudden orders have just been received here from the Admiralty for the Portsmouth division of the Channel squadron, viz., H.M.S. Minotaur (flagship), Neptune, and Sultan, to immediately preoare for sea, and in consequence the crews, whose leave did not trans- pire until Tuesday next, have been recalled to W join their vessels to-morrow morning. The cause W' of this and the destination of the fleet is kept > secret. PLYMOUTH, Sunday.—On Saturday afternoon, about 3.30, a telegram was received at DevonportH by the Naval Commander-in-Chief ordering the Plymouth detachment of the Channel Squadron to be immediately prepared for sea. A message was accordingly signalled to the commanders of the Northumberland, Achilles, and Agincourt, the crews of which vessels are nearly all on leave. Telegrams and letters were fortbwith despatched to all parts of the country, and in- structions issued that the vessels should take in their ammunition on Monday morning. The object of the orders received has in no way leaked out, and when it became known that orders of a similar nature had been received at Portsmouth, there was considerable specula- tion at the various public institutions to which the telegrams were communicated.. A large number of men have already returned, but in the event of some of the crews not arriving in time, it is believed that their places will be sup- plied from the complements of the ships now in harbour.
