.¡ THE PRINCE OF WALES. Last Sunday morning at ten o'clock, there was a special service of prayer and thanksgiving in Sandring- ham House by the express command of Her Majesty, who, with the members of the Royal family and household, was present. The Rev. W. Lake Onslow officiated in his capacity of private chaplain to the Prince and Princess of Wales. Afterwards, at the usual hour, their Royal High- nesses the Princess of Wales and Princess Louis of Hesse, attended Divine service at the parish church. Mr. Onslow conducted the service, and in lieu of the special form of prayer he requested the congregation to join with him in the Litany in imploring the AI- mighty to grant the speedy restoration to health of his Royal Highness the Princess of Wales. The rector preached an appropriate sermon from the text, Behold I make all things ncvRev. xxi., 5. He referred to the favourable change of circumstance.; almost coin- cident with the prayers of the nation, and, indeed, of the world. It may be interesting to state that the family prayer every morning in the hall of Sarrdringham House, concludes with the following special sup- plication :— "And now, () Lord God, Almighty, and Father of all Mercies, we implore Thee especially in behalf of the head of this family and household, who lieth sick on his bed. To Thine ever watchful care, to Thine all- sufficiant love we commend him, his body, his soul, and his spirit. Oh! Thou most gracious and Heavenly Physician, Thou alone canst heal him for this life and the life to come hereafter. Oh most merciful Saviour and Redeemer, bless, we beseech Thee, all human means and skill used for his recovery, and in Thy great mercy restore him to his wonted health, strength, and vigour. Give to him beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of prahe for the spirit of heaviness. That he may glorify Thy holy and blessed name for evermore. Amen."
