PLYMOUTH, Saturday.

Her Majesty’s screw steam-blockship Sanspareil, 81, in charge of Mr. Biddlecombe and a party of seamen riggers, having been towed out of harbour yesterday at 6 a.m. by the steam-vessels Pike and Confiance, went into the Channel to try her engines, under the superintendence of Captain W. Ramsey, of the Magicienne, and in company with the steam-sloop Desperate, Lieutenant Stevens. The Sanspareil returned at 7 in the evening, and went up Hamoaze; her average speed under steam was 7¼ knots, the engines working well. She is now ordered to take on board all her guns and stores, when her engines will be again tried.
