Tho 'Central News' is enabled to Btnto that the Admiralty lmve definitely adopted into the service the engine-room telegraph nnd electric signnlling system known ns Willis's patent, which' will replaco the mechanical system now in use, Tho Willis's arrangement was subjected to the roughest practical test before its adoption, both on land nnd at son, nnd wns tho only invention which met every requirement, nnd success fully slood every condition of tlio service.
