THE COURT. THE Queen arrived last week safe at Windsor again after her continental trip. Her Majesty landed at Woolwich, and the ridiculous regulations which were enforced when the Queen left England were modified, and numbers of people witnessed the disembarkation, and her Majesty was lustily cheered throughout her route. THE Queen, accompanied with one or other of the Royal family, took her usual walks and drives in the vicinity of Windsor throughout the week. ON Saturday her Majesty held a Council, which was attended by the Earl Granville, the Duke of New- castle, Viscount Palmerston, and the Right Hon. Sir George Grey. At the Council Parliament was ordered to be further prorogued from the 14th of October next. Mr. Arthur Helps attended as Clerk of the Council. The Hon. H. Elliot was presented to her Majesty at an audience. Sir Andrew Buchanan had an audience of her Majesty. Earl Granville and Viscount Palmerston had also audiences of the Queen. HER Majesty left the Castle on Monday afternoon from the Windsor terminus of the Great Western Railway, and reached Aboyne, the nearest railway station to Balmoral, at a little before two o'clock the following morning. Carriages were provided for her Majesty to repose, as she travelled through the night and was nineteen hours on the journey. We are happy to add that her Majesty appeared to be in good health and spirits. THE Prince and Princess of Wales were at Aber- geldie during the past week, and his Royal Highness the Prince has killed five beautiful stags, while her Royal Highness the Princess has taken her accus- tomed drives, fishing on the Dee, and sketching in the neighbourhood. THE Prince and Princess of Wales will bring their residence in the Highlands to a close in a short time, and return to Sandringham-hall, his Royal Highness's seat in Norfolk. Their Royal Highnesses, accompanied by their suite, attended, as usual, the parish church of Crathie on Sunday. Dr. Fowler, of Ratho, con- ducted the services. The rev. doctor preached a re- markably powerful sermon from the text, "For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ." There was a large and very attentive con- gregation. In consequence of numerous other engage- ments the Prince of Wales cannot undertake to go to St. Andrews at the beginning of October next to preside over the October meeting of the Royal and Ancient Golf Club, on the occasion of his Royal Highness being made captain. IT is expected that Prince Alfred and one of the Danish Princes will be present at one of the concluding meetings of the Social Science Association, which is to assemble in Edinburgh on the 7th of October. _u.
