THE COURT. -+-- THE Court still remains in Scotland. The Queen is said to be enjoying good health. THE following account of the doings of the Royal family is taken from the Scotsm&n:—Her Majesty the Queen, accompanied by their Royal Highnesses the Princesses and the Duchess of Coburg, and daily at. tended by Mr. Grant, enjoys her usual walks and drives through the grounds, and around the district as far as Braemar and other places, while the^ Duke of Coburg and the gentlemen of the suite are daily out in the moors and forests. Their success in deer-stalking has been fair; but on the moors the grouse are now very wild, consequently poor bags have been got during the last ten days. On Sunday the Rev. Robert Stephen, M.A., of Renfrew, preached in the parish church of Crathie, forenoon and afternoon. His sermon was noted for simplicity of language and striking illus- trations. It not having been officially made known at Crathie, several of the Royal suite were absent in the forenoon, but in the afternoon her Majesty the Queen, the Princess Helena, the Duke and Duchess of Coburg, and the ladies and gentlemen of the household, were present, and occupied the Royal pews. The church was well filled, but there were fewer strangers from a distance present than usual, owing to their not having heard that Mr. Ste- phen was ta preach. His Royal Highness Prince Alfred arrived at Balmoral Castle on Thursday. The Duke and Duchess of Coburg were to leave in the end at the week; but previous to their departure it was intended to hold a ball at the Castle, that their High- nesses might see the style in which the Highlanders dance their national reels. Lord Delawarr arrived on a visit at Abergeldie Castle on Monday, and will stay for a few weeks. The Marchioness of Ely has been suffering for some time from an attack of scarlatina, but she is now nearly convalescent. Lieutenant Phipps and ether gentlemen have been prosecuting the ashing for the last few' days, without, however, being very successful. There is plenty of fish in the water a.t present, but from some cause or other they do not take well with the hook. ON the evening of the 15th, her Majesty received from Potsdam the gratifying intelligence of her Royal Highness the Crown Princess of Prussia's safe de- livery of a prince at twelve o'clock that morning. THE Prince and Princess of Wales have been travel- ling from one part of Denmark to the other, and have been especially happy in the society of the Royal parents of the Princess. It is expected their Royal Highnesses will visit Sweden on their return home. THE Duke of Cambridge, attended by Colonel Clifton, arrived at Gloucester-house last week from Paris and Germany. The Princess Mary did not ac- company the Duke of Cambridge, but has gone to Switzerland with her sister, the Grand Duchess of Mecklenburg Strelitz. IT is said that the Dublin people, in spite of the re- oent disgraceful proceedings in the Town Council re- specting the Albert Memorial, are expecting a visit from at least one of the members of the Royal Family at the inauguration of the statue. The funds have already been collected, and the site de- termined. It remains now for the Queen to give her consent as to the time and the persons who shall take the chief part in the ceremonial.
