The First Fog. The appearance of the interior of the Exhibition build- ing on Saturday was one of great loneliness, and the statuary had quite a spectral air in consequence of the fog which at one period filled the vast expanse. The effect was very singular-somewhat like what we re- member to have seen under the great dome of St. Paul's Cathedral at the funeral of Turner, the artist, when it was said that the elements themselves had contributed a fitting pall for the coffin of the illustrious deceased. The fog of Saturday was also premonitory and suggestive, as we are very likely to have denser ones later in the season, when the utmost vigilance; and perhaps some extra precautions, will b3 necessary to prevent a few of the valuable and more portable contents disappearing altogether during the prevalence of the murky atmos- phere. His Royal Highness Prince Alfred honoured the Exhi- bition with a visit. His royal highness was received by Mr. Sandford, secretary to the Royal Commission, and by that gentleman escorted over several of the depart- ments. A good deal of time was spent in the Porcelain Court, after which his royal highness partook of luncheon in the refreshment department. Cardinal Wiseman and Lord Clyde were also amongst the visitors, the former, as usual, devoting his principal attention to the Roman Court.
