PRINCE ALFRED IN INDIA. Prince Alfred, says the Bombay Gazette, after a pleasant two days' sail, reached Beynore on March 21, where he found the Governor of Madras waiting for him. By next mrraing they and their suites had been transported along the railway to Madras, and on arrival there an imposing procession was formed. At present we have only the telegraphic announcement of the arrival. Here in Bombay the natives seem to regret there was no such procession. Their idea i-? that the Prince should have sat on a howdah on an elephant's bick, and moved slowly along so as to be leisurely inspected by all and sundry. They take exception also to the extreme plainness of his attire when he appeared in public. One of the native papers criticises him for making no presents to the native chiefs, but it appears this was written under a misapprehension. Here, as elsewhere, no valuable presents were re- ceived. Sir Neville Chamberlain himself examined the articles offered with the object of returning those that were costly, and keeping such as would be interesting though inexpensive souvenirs of the country, and return presents of a fitting character seem to have been made. From a published list we quote the following :—To the Gaskwar his Royal Highness presented a handsome and very valuable gold hunting watch and chain, with the royal cypher surmounted by a crown set in diamonds on the back. To the Rao ni Kutch was presented a splendid double-barrelled gun, nude by Holland, of New Bond-street. The barrels Miegold dlt, and are to bear a suitable imcrl.ition. Mf»;r Ali Moorad Khan received a simi'ar rifle, one of R^iiiy's, with an inscripti on and the RIyal arms or it. To the Nawab of Cambay will be sent a splendid sword, specially mace for pre^eutat'oa. The Rajah of Kolapore receives a fine telescope; the Nawab of Moonaghur, a stereoscope with plates Holkar, a mag- nificent clock; Drangdra, a revolver beautifully ornamented, with carved ivory handles; Sanglee, a brace of revolvers by Purday; and the Rajah of Soanth, a handsome double-barrelled Lancaster rifle."
