THE IRONCLAD VICTORIA.
LAST AND IlIOOKST MAtlINK MO.V3TUK,
WITH ALL UUIt EXOHMOU9 OUN3.
The new wnr ship was lattnclicd in
April from the BuipbiiiltUng ynnl of
Sir W. G. Armstrong, Newcastle.
Tills being the laigcst ship ever
laimelidd in the Tyne, anil the
heaviest vessel in the work), con
siderable interest was taken in the
proceedings. A distinguished com
pany assembled on a reset ved plat
form to witness tho proceedings,
other parts of the extensive yard,
the opposite side of the river, and a
number of steamboats being occu
pied by crowds uiiinberinc certainly
not less than from 1-10,000 to 160,
After the launch a select com
pany assembled in the refreshment
Sir William G. Armstrong, in pro
posing "Success to tho Victoria,"
said: "I am about to propose a
toast, but before I do so I will take
the present opportunity of making
some remarks concerning the Vic
toria and war ships in general. This
is not a iitting occasion for me to
criticise tlio policy of strengthening
our ilect b3' the addition of great
armor-clads rather than by tho addi
tion of swift cruisers of the pro
tected class. I have said enough on
tliis subject on many former occa
sions, and 1 will now only observe
that I am glad to see that our Ad
miralty are disposed to slacken their
expenditure on these gigantic ships,
in response to similar action on the
part of other maritime Powers, and
that they are expanding their oper
ations in tlie building of swift
cruisers. I maintain, as I have
always done, that the country re
quires, above all tilings, a numerous
lleet of swift cruisers, not extempor
ized out of merchant or passenger
ships, but specially built and adapt
ed for tlie proteetion of the wide
spread commerce upon which our
very existence depends, and for aid
ing in tho defence of our colonics,
which, I trust, will every year draw
closer to the mother country. Hut
whnt I chiefly wish to do on this
occasion is to direct your attention
to tlio marvelous transformation
which has taken pjneo within the
last forty years in our ships of war
and their armaments, and in the
enormous increase of elllciency which
has been attained thereby.
"In an lesthetic point of view, it
must be confessed that our ships
have sadly deteriorated. No more
beautiful object could bo seen than
a great mnn-oi-war of the old type
tinder a press of sail. Pools and
painters have delighted in depicting
it; but tlio engineer appreciates
power more than beauty, and vihile
a Ruskiu would stigmatize a modern
war bhip as a 'devil' ship, tlie engi
neer regards it as a splendid tri
umph of mechanical skill. For tho
purpose of comparison betweon tho
ships of the old sort and tho new, I
can take no moro Iitting examples
than tlio Victory and Victoiia, so
liku in name ami yet so different in
nil things elso. The Victory, I neod
scarcely say, was the fatuous battle
ship in which Nelson fought and
died. She was one of tlio largest
ships of her day, but her displace
ment or total weight, with every
thing on board, was.only il,500 tons,
while tlie displacement of the Vic
toria will be 10,,'jOO tons. The Vic
tory, in accordance with tlie usage
of the time, was built of oak ; tlio
Victoria, in accordance wjtli present
practico, is built of iron, Tho Vic
tory was propelled by wind, over
which man has no control ; tlio Vic
toria will be propelled by steam,
over which man lias perfect mastery.
Tlie Victory had tho character of
being an extraordinary quick sailer,
and when the wind happened to be
exceptionally propitious she could
attajn a spped of nearly thirteen
knots an hour. The Victoria, pro
pelled by engines of moro than 12,
000 horse power, inay bo expected
to achieve about seventeen knots an.
"In regard, to armampnt, tliD
comparison in favor of the 'Victoria
is astounding, and ought to open
tlio eyes of those who are in the
habit of disparaging the progress of
ailillery in this country. The arma
ment of tlio Victory as she fought at
Trafalgar consisted of thirty 32
pounders, thirty 2'1-poundors, forty
12-pounders, and two 08-pounder
carronades, making in all 102 guns.
The heaviest of these guns was un
der three tons, while the heaviest oil
board tho Yietoiia is 110 tons, 'flip
largest chargo of powdor used In the
Victory was 8 pounds, while tho
largest charge, to bo used in tho
Victoria will bo 900 pounds. Tlio
heaviest shot used in tlio .Victory
was 08 pounds, while in tho Victoria
it will bo 1,800 pounds. The weight
of metal discharged from the broad
sjdo of tho Victory was 1,150
pounds, against -i,7fi0 pounds from
that of tho Victoria. But the power
of tho broadside dischargo from eaoh
ship is bettor indicated by tho quan
tity of powder expended than by
tho weight of tho metal discharged,
and while tho broadsido lire from
tlio Victory' consumed only 325
pounds, that from tho Victoria will
I'Oimuno 3,000 pounds. In point of
rnngo, accuracy, ponetratin power
and shell power, the difference is so
great in favor of tho Victoria that a
comparison would bo ridiculous.
"1 have yet to give you tho par
ticulars of tho Victoria's armament.
It will consUt of two 110-ton guns,
mounted in a revolving tuiretund
firing uhfind or on either side ; one
8l)-lon gun, firing astern or on
either side; twelve 5-ton gunsj
twelve G-pounder quick-filing guns
and !) 3-pounder quiek-flring guns,
and a considerable number of ma
chine guns for smaller ammunition.
Besides licr nrtillcry nrmament the
Victoria lias a powerful ram, and
she carries eight torpedo dischargers,
four above and four below water.
In the lighting days of the Victory
ramming was liltlo practiced, and
toipedoea were wholly unknown.
But there is another point of view
in which the Victoria compares in n
highly favorable degree with the
Victory, and that is in the sihallness
of the number of oflleers and men
required to handlo the ship. The
comp'onent of olllccrs and men on
boaul the Victory was 850, wliilo on
board the Victoria it will only bo
550, of whom 110 will'be cnginceis
and stokers, IcavingonlyMO olllceis
and men in a combatant capacity.
Thus, although tho Victoria is three
times as big as tlie Victory and
prodigiously superior in offensive
power, there will only be half the
number of men exposed to death
nnd wounds in the woi king of her
armament. This result is chiefly
due to the mechanical appliances
which in iccent years liavu been
introduced tor working the guns.
At tlie commencement of my career
as an attillerist it was regarded ns
an axiom that no gun exceeding 5
tons weight could be worked on n
moving platform, such as tlie deck
of ship. A gun of 5 tons 12 cwt.,
Ilring a cliarcc of 20 pounds of
powder nnd a shot of C8 pounds,
had been tried on Bhipboard and
found unmanageable, and it had to
be icplaced by a gun of 4 tons 15
cwt., Ilring only 1(5 pounds with the
sumo weight of shot. At the pre
sent day wo liavo to deal with guns
of 1 10 tons, which have to be
charged with powder and shot
weighing together 2,700 tons. It is
manifest that the loading and mani
pulation of Biich a gun could not
possibly bo effected by tlio manual
labor of any number of men that
could be crowded around the gun,
but it lias been effected by the em
ployment of a very few men, acting
ihiough the agency of hydraulic
machinery. Then, again, to go
from tlie largest to tlie smallest
artillery gun to be used in tlio Vic
toria, which is the thiec-poundor
llotchkiss quick-firing gun, wo have
another cxamplo of what mechanisms
have done for artillery. It is a gun
of great lange and penetrative
power, which, by means of mechani
'cal arrangenunts, can be fired with
dclibcrato aim twenty times a min
ute by the employment of only three
men. Or, if we take the quick-firing
gun which lias been recently de
signed and perfected at Els wick and
which fires any desired weight of
projectile between Unity and forty
pounds, and compare it with the pfd
32-ponnders, such as tlie Victory
cariied, and which required eight
men to work it at tlio rate of ono
round a minute, we have in tlie new
weapon a gun of enormously greater
power, which i an fire ten rounds a
minute with only four men to servo
it, so that this gun with four men to
serve it, will lire as many lounds per
minute as could formoily be tired by
eighty men with ten guns. I pro
pose the toast of 'Tho Royal Navy,
and success to the Victoria. "
