I FROM OUR PRIVATE CORRESPONDENT. LONDON, THURSDAY EVENING. "The Queen is to proceed to Coburg in August, to be present at the uncovering of the statue of the lamented Prince Consort. Lord Granville will be the minister in attendance."âSo says The Owl of last evening. It also tells us, that Her Majesty has been graciously pleased to confer the Order of the Garter on the Duke of Cleveland and that it is likely that Her Majesty will confer the dignity of a peerage on the Lord Chief Jus- tice. Yesterday, the Prince of Wales held the second levee of the season, in the name of the Queen. There was a full attendance of the Diplomatic body, and official person- ages, and the presentations were numerous. There has been, of late, rumours in and out of the press, relative to the intention of ministers to propose an increase of the allowance made to the Prince of Wales. That rumour has now assumed more form and consis- tency. It is expected that the question will soon be brought before parliament; and that the increase will be k.50,000 per annum. His Royal Highness's present income, from all sources, amounts to R100,000 per an- num. Sir Rutheford Alcock, our late consul at Japan, suc- ceeds Sir F. Bruce, as Ambassador at Pekin and he will proceed to his destination through Russia and Sibe- ria. Col. the Hon, Percy E. Herbert, C.B., has resigned his office of Deputy-Quarter-JIaster-Geueral at the Horse Guards; and is succeeded by Col. E. R. Wetherall, C. B., Deputy Quarter-Master-General at Dublin. Col M'Murdo, late Inspector-General of Volunteers, will, it is expected, succeed Col. Wetherall. A military attache is to be connected with our embassy at Vienna and Col. the Hon. St. Geo. Foley, C.B., is to have the appoiutment. He is now assistant Quarter- Master-General at Manchester; a post which will not be filled-up.. It is said that Parliament will be positively dissolved in July. In many quarters there is great activity dis- played by both Conservatives and Liberals in making arrangements for the coming elections. In some places the Conservatives are much annoyed by projected compromises. One of these has just been carried out in North Wilts, where Mr. Sothern Estcourt resigned his seat; and Lord Charles Bruce, brother to the Earl of Aylesbury, has been elected some of the leading Con- servatives agreeing to admit the Liberals to share the re- presentation of that division of the county. There were four Conservative members for Wiltshire now there are three, and one Liberal. We learn from St. Petersburg (date March 20), that the 18 members of the Assembly of Nobles at Pskoff, who joined in the request of the Moscow nobles, for a national representation to Russia, are to be prosecuted. The editors of the newspapers which published the declaration of the Moscow Nobles, are to be imprisoned for two months. The French Government has agreed to recognize the provisional state of things in the duchies of Schleswig and Holstein, and the provisional fltg.-Tliere is no in- telligence from Prussia this morning. At Vienna, the Lower House of the Reichsrath has resolved to refer the budget of 1866 to the committee on the budget of I860. A telegram from Bucharest, dated March 21, an- nounces the prevalence, for the last five days, of terrible inundations. One-third of Bucharest was under water, which was, in some parts, more than 5 feet in depth. Jassy, Galatz, and Kekoutcb, had also suffered greatly. In the country, the rivers had overflown their banks, carrying away the bridges, and destroying the roads. Last week, M. Sartiges communicated, first to Cardinal Antonelli, and then to the Pope, the intelligence that the French troops would be gradually withdrawn from Rome. After the interview, the Pope was very thought- ful he did not go out, but retired to pray. A proposal to appeal for help to the Roman Catholic powers was rejected Antonelli remarking, that those powers had enough on their hands, without the burden of Roman troubles. An opinion prevails, that if France insists Victor Emmanuel really performing his part of the con- vention, there is nothing to fear. We learn from Madrid (date, March 2f), that the Spanish army is to be reduced by 10,000 men; which will cause a reduction of 60,000,000 reals in the ex- penditure. Intelligence from Monte Video, dated the 7th of Fe- bruary, announces the surrender of that town and the garrison to the Brazilian admiral. It was, therefore, oc- cupied without bloodshed. Quebec intelligence, dated March 11, informs us that the Ciwadian parliament had adopted the Confederation scheme, by 91 to 33 votes. Intelligence from New York, to the 12th instant, in- forms us that the Federal Senate had adjourned, with- out transacting any important business. The only diplo- matic appointment sent in was that of Mr. John Hall, as minister to Spain. According to the New York Times, it is not intended, at present, to make any diplomatic appointment to France. The Confederate Senate had passed the negro enlistment bill, in committee. It was supposed the House would confirm it. It was reported that the Federal government would send the cotton captured at Savannah to England.âMr. M'Ciilloch, the new Secretary of the Treasury, had announced that he would make an effort to resume early specie pay- ments. The report of Sheridan's victory over Early is con- firmed the latter general was not, however, captured. The latest news of Sherman was, that scouts arrived at Wilmington announce his occupation of Cheran. Up to that time, nothing but skirmishing had occurred. His advauce into South Carolina was a certainty. Other scouts say that he had intercepted and crushed Cheat- ham's corps, which was moving from Alabama to re- inforce Ilardee the latter was not tip in time, and did not give battle. Beauregard was reported to be at Ra-1 leigh. The Confederates were fortifying Goldsborough. âThe Conservative slaveholders were arming their slaves; and coloured troops had been seen at Richmond, confronting Grant's army.
