New York, April 18. For a week past
some of the most terrible specimens of
sn's ingenuity in tbe way of destruction
bave been riding the blue waters in the bay
here, and during all that week the assem

there are thousands have watched for the
appearance of the British contingent. So

that when Admiral Gberardi announced
yesterday morning that the Uritish fleet
was coming in there was a rush of those
who were awake to see the sight. For
John Bull had chosen an early hour for
fashionable people to make his appear

Some Very Noisy Compliments.
Admiral Gherardf s announcement was
a notification to stand by to salute the
visitors after they had fired off twenty-
one guns in honor of the American colors.
and the American fleet and Fortress Mon
roe were prompt in doing this. The fash
ionable set were ruthlessly awakened by
Ithis terrible bombardment and the rever
beration of the mighty guns of the Blake
and the answers that came quickly back
from the post and tbe flagship Philadelphia.
Hardly had the dense curls of white smoke
disappeared from the muzzles of the guns
when the Blake started in to assure the
French, Russian, and Italian flags of her
distinguished esteem and consideration by
saluting the commanding officers of the
four vessels with the number of guns due
A lieautifu Marine Spectacle.
During these ceremonies tbe flags on all
the ships were constantly changing from
one country to another, and to an on-looker
it seemed that if there ever existed any il!
feeling between Russia, England and
France and the United States, there were
little remnants of it left. Tbe appearance
these five crack ships of the queen's
navy presented as they moved majestically
over the water and past tbe outer end of

the prettiest sights ever -seen here,... At
the head of tbe fleet was tbe big armored
cruiser Blake, a counterpart of our own
ship New York, of 9,000 tons displacement
and 20,000 horsepower, heavily armored
and the most formidable ship that will be
in the review.
Sailed in Perfect Line.
In her wake was the protected cruiser
Australia with ber sides fairly toothed with
fierce-loo&ing high-power guns. Gliding
gracefully next was tbe cruiser Tartar.and
in the rear was the little Barkentine rigged
cruiser Partridge. In perfect line they
sailed in, with signals flying from their
tops and yardarms and the ensign of the
country "the flag that's braved a thousand
years," floating defiantly from the taff rails
of each ship. At tbe masthead of the Blake
was the pennant of Vice Admiral J. O.
Hopkins, K. C. IJ., commander-in-chief of
tbe fleet, and upon the signal halliards
were combinations of yellow and white
siguals to the ships behind her.
NAVAL COURTESIES COME NEXT.
Admirals Gherardi and Hopkins
change Visits Society Gossip.
Sweeping by the fleet the Blake slowed
down just as she passed the Newark and
when abreast of the Philadelphia the sig
nal was displayed to the other ships to an.
cbor. As quickly as tne signal was seen
just as quickly were five bow anchors seen
to splash tbe water into foam and the deep
rumbling of the chain could be heard as
forty fathoms ran through the hawse-
pipes. With the flood tide all Ave ships
promptly swung around with their noses
pointea out, to tue x&oaas ana iorming a
line extending a mile out. The firing com
xnenced and was kept up incessantly fur
half an hour.
Some More Explosive Compliments.
ai ii o ciock Aamirai uopains put on
his cocked bat, buckled his sword on, and
embarking in his gig was pulled over to
the Philadelphia, where he saw Admiral
Gherardi, heard fifteen guns fired off in his
honor, and then departed to his own vessel
to get ready to receive our commander-in-
chief, who went through the same prepara
tions ana naa tne same number ot guns
discharged for his benefit. These courtesies
having been exchanged the noise was sus
pended for an hour. Later in the day Ad
miral Hopkins called on Colonel Frank,
and was received as became bis rank.
Colonel Frank returned the call, and the
Blake was again called upon to honor an
official of our country.

At the Hygela Hotel.
The "jolly Britisher" was and is making
the moat of It, for he has been there before
and knows how it will be when another
style of jbaval uniform comes on the scene;
and tbe German fleet is coming. The
PaVa hotel is crowded with beautiful
rrry .o, gallant naval omcers, many prom-
i -.eat civilians and a generous sprinkling
of army officers. The crowd is as great as
at any political convention, but no gather
ing of politicians could ever be so Interest

steamers add hourly to tbe numbers.

It cannot be denied that the whole in

the other British ships. During the even

the poops and forward bridges of the
American ships the powerful search lights
made the waters glimmer and shine like
the moon upon new fallen snow. The re
flectors were worked upward to throw their
flashes of light to the heavens and then on 1

from Cesarea and Marsovan, where he in
vestigated th.e recent reports of the perse

a statement in an interview in regard to
the origin of the disturbances. Mr. New-

the Turkish authorities as in part at least
He says that tbe disturbances had their
beginning in Turkish or Armenian con

The Governor Will Choke It Off with
Washington, April IS. A special to The
Evening News from Raleigh, N. C says:
"The governor of this state will probably
be compelled to call out the state guard to
dispossess 3.000 negroes .who have domi
ciled on land which the county courts have
decided to belong to a white man, and
who refuse to submit to legal pro
cess. W hen tbe federal authorities cap-"

on to a tract of land opposite it, belonging
to J ames -V. uryau.
The negroes have continued to squat
there ever since and it is now known as
James City. The population of this black
village is 3,o00. The supreme court, after
long litigation sustained Bryan's right
to the lands, but the necroes refuse to
pay even nominal rents and bave risen en
masse against civil officers who attempted
to eject them. Governor Carr has notified
the negroes that they must obey the law,
but they are ugly and refuse to vacate.
Celebrated Emancipation Day.
Washington," April IS. Thirty-one years
ago Sunday slavery ceased in tbe District
of Columbia by the taking effect of the
emancipation proclamation of President

Later in the day a mass-meeting was held
at Lincoln park, where speeches were
made in commemoration of the day. Pro
fessor John M. Langston addressed the

ment and an effort is beiug made to ascer

Sensational arrests are expected.
