TO OUR NAVY.
&H3 : Your Squadron
The incidents of the run of the fleet from
Norfolk were not at all exciting. The two
lines of vessels kept distance after a fash
ion, but not as it had been hoped, a num
ber of them getting out of line and going
on their own hook. The trip was made in
delightful weather, but the speed was too
great moderate though it was for some
of the foreigners to maintain. The United
States vessels, however, were as steady as
veteran soldiers and Admiral Hopkins
from the Blake noticed the fact and sig
nalled his compliments to Admiral Gher
ardi with the addition, "Your squadron
looks very pretty." "Thank you," was the
reply signalled by Gherardi as he smiled
The British Were I'p to Date.
Before the fleet had been at sea many
hours it was strung out and scattered
pretty badly. But this was not true of the
Britishers. They were an interesting and
beautiful sight. The Blake kept abreast
of the Philadelphia and 4he Australia, the
Magicienne and the Tartar followed so
evenly and steadily that an iron bar con
necting them could not have secured
greater precision of movement. No change
of course or speed disturbed the regularity
of their distance from each other. "They
know how to sail in a squadron," remarked
Admiral Gherardi, as he glanced with the
admiration of a gratified critic at the con
fident skill with which the Britishers exe
cuted every manoeuver. He knew, too,
that the eyes of Admiral Hopkins and the
English officers and sailors .ere watching
his squadron with equal interest.
(letting- Into Position.
As the fleet neared the end of the voyage
signals were given to form in single line in
order to take positions in the lower bay.
The manoeuvre was executed very well
and toon the big ships were headed for
their anchorages. During this time the
heights ashore were packed with thousands
of people and the scene was a brilliant and
animated one. As the ships appeared
close enough to make out the multitude
broke into a roar of cheers for each one
and the acclamations were accented by the
boom of cannon in forts and warships as
the salutes were given and answered.
It was fully 5 o'clock before the Brazil
ian fleet got into its place. Each national
salute was answered by Forts Wadsworth
and Hamilton in tarn firing their fifteen
inch smooth bores, and eight-inch rifle

Laona, put all of his horses and cattle and
valuables into the barn and then set it on

1 thirty-eight head of cattle, six horses,

the loiise, locked the doors and killed
himself with a shotgun. His brother com
' mitted suicide last summer in the same

led to the act.

Fort Moxroe, Va., April 36. The
transition at Fort Monroe has been
