THE COURT. TTTT: Court still remains in Scotland, and her Liaiesty and the Royal Family continue to enjoy quiet seclusion in their Highland home, the Queen varying her amusements occasionally by sketching the finer views around Balmoral. The weather during the week has been unsettled and rainy. THEIR Royal Highnesses the Prince and Princess of Wales left for Stockholm in the Royal yacht Osborne on the 14th of September, and are daily expected to return to England. The Danish Royal family and Sir Augustus Paget accompanied the distinguished guests on board. Salutes were fired from the batteries of the forts. The ships in the harbour, as well as the public and private buildings, were decorated with flags. Their Royal Highnesses were loudly cheered by the spectators. His Royal Highness the Crown Prince of Italy paid a visit to the Crystal Palace on Saturday, accompanied by the Marquis d'Azeglio and General Revel, where they passed several hours. On Sunday morning Prince Humbert and a large party, including the Italian Minister, attended divine service at the Catholic chapel in Farm-street-mews, Berkeley-square. His Royal Highness afterwards visited the Queen's stables at the Royal mews, Pimlico. On leaving the Palace stables the Prince and party started in a steamboat from Hungerford Pier for Greenwich. After a thorough inspection of the Royal Hospital, the Prince and company adjourned to the Trafalgar Hotel to dine. The Prince and his suite, previous, to his leaving England, visited the camp at Aldershot, where there was a review of the troops. It is now said to be quite settled that the Princess's sister, the Princess Dagmar, is to be betrothed to the Czarewitch, who is on his way to Copenhagen. THE christening of the infant son of the Princess Royal (Princess of Prussia) will take place on the 18th of October next, that day being the birthday of the Crown Prince, his father. The ceremony will be con- ducted with great pomp. After the christening the Princess Royal will go to the South of France for the benefit of her health. THE Prince of Wales has subscribed the handsome sum of 100 guineas towards the fund raised for the meeting at Plymouth next year of the Royal Agri- cultural Society. A LARGE number of masons and other artisans are still engaged on the Royal mausoleum at Frogmore, the works of which, it is expected, will not be com- pleted before the latter end of next year. The cost of this magnificent tomb is estimated at one hundred thousand pounds.
