§ CAPTAIN PIM
asked the Secretary to the Admiralty, Whether the Admiralty have received any reports or accounts from Admiral de Horsey in respect to the encounter between Her Majesty's ships "Shah" and "Amethyst" and the Peruvian Ironclad "Huascar;" and, if so, whether he has any objection to lay such reports or accounts upon the Table of the House?
§ MR. A. F. EGERTON,
in reply, said, the Reports from Admiral de Horsey relating to this subject had been received at the Admiralty, either last night or this morning. They were very volumi- 1181 nous; and until they had been considered it would be premature to say whether they could be laid on the Table.
