Wlttimtfiap'* AHtr CDutffeap'* ipoat** LONE ON, Nov. 29. THE ROYAL PROGRESS TO DRAYTON MANOR. YESTERDAY morning the Queen and Prince Albert left Windsor on a visit to Sir R. Peel at Drayton Manor. The morning was peculiarly bright tor the present season of the year. The sun shone forth in full splendour, and the beautiful landscape which expands before the eye of the spectator from the Castle was lighted up in all its varied tints. A more lovely day for the commencement of her Majesty's journey could not have been desiied. It was about five minutes past nine o'clock when her Majesty, ac- companied by Prince Albert, stepped into her carriage, and by this time a considerable number of the inhabitants of Windsor had collected in the precincts of the Castle, and in the streets of Windsor, to witness the departure of the Royal party. The cortege consisted of three travelling car- riages, with outriders in the royal livery. The first car- riage was of the chariot shape, drawn by four horses, and was occupied by the Queen and Prince Albert, who were escorted by a detachment of the Life Gnards, under the command of Lieutenant Bolton. The Royal snite in at- tendance on her Majesty and her illustrious con.-oit fol- lowed in two carriages and four. As the cortege passed rapidly along the road it was everywhere received with manifestations on the part of the assembled crowds of loyalty and attachment. On the Queen's entrance into the different towns and villages the church bells were set ringing a merry peal, and flags in- scribed with loyal mottoes were to be seen waving from a number of windows. Triumphal arches, and galleries filled with ladies added to the gaiety of the scene. It was near eleven o'clock when the Royal party reached the Watford station; the arrangements made to receive her Majesty were on a very handsome scale, considering the shortness of the notice, and the few facilities offered by the place itself. The road by which her Majesty was to approach lies over the bridge that arches the line of rail, and after running parallel with the side of the station a distance of about 100 yards, sweeps round to the left into a very spacious court-yard at the back ot the station. At the opposite end of this court-yard is the point of ingress to the station at the back; and here a very handsome reception chamber was prepared. A lofty and spacious room, or saloon, one side of which was completely thrown open, was very tastefully decorated with crimson cloth, in front at the top formed into handsome drapery, and presenting the appearance of a proscenium. The roof and sides were covered with fluted cloth, pink and white alternately, and the floor was carpeted with crimson of the same material as the upper drapery. Round the sides of this saloon were ranged evergreens of very choice kinds. The whole struc- tnre, when seen from the outside, and with the Royal standard waving from the top, looked at once splendid aud elegant. On alighting at the reception-room, the Queen and the Prince were received by the Directors and Officers of the Company. Her Majesty wore a black velvet pelisse, and an open straw bonnet with black trimmings. Both Her Ma. jesty and the Prince looked remarkably well. Some little time having been occupied in attaching the royal carriages to the special train, the party started about half-past 11, amidst most enthusiastic and prolonged cheering. Wolverton was reached at 21 minntes after twelve o'clock and here Her Majesty had previously signitied1)er intention to alight. A private room had been fitted up (most taste- fully) for Her Majesty's nse, wherein weie placed refresh- ments, provided by Mr. Vantini, the contractor for that department on the principal lines of railway. To this room Her Majesty and the Prince retired together, the members of tbeir suite remaining outside. At thirty-five minutes past twelve o'clock Her Majesty returned to the State carriage, and in five minutes after- wards the train was again in motion. At Roade, as before at every station and the intermediate distances along the line. numbers of persons were congregated at every avail- able point of view, who cheered Her Majesty as she passed along; but as the train went at the rate of 26 miles an hour, it may be supposed that the whole ebullition of loyalty was confined to the concentrated efforts of a few moments. Yet thnngh this necessarily limited the duration, it hy no means affected its intensity. The shorter the time, the more de- termined did the people seem to be to give full expression to tbeir feelings. The approach to Weedon was announced by the sound of martial music, which was heard even above the noise of the engine, and the rumbling thnnder of the train. Weedon being a military station, additional facilities were afforded, and the authorities seized on them to afford her Majesty a brilliant reception—perhaps the most striking on the whole line. A standard waved from the Church-steeple on the right as the train approached the station, ond on the left aalntes were fired from the Barracks. Along the whole length of the station troops (the 64th) lined the road side. As the train came op they presented arms to her Majesty, and the band played the national anthem. Flags with loyal inscriptions.—•'Victoria, England's hope," "God save the Queen, and so on,—waved on either side of the way, and the music of the band met a not inappropriate accompani- ment in the enthusiastic cheering of the inhabitants of the neighbourhood, who, were assembled in multitudes around on the heights, clustering on tbe tops of the buildings, or peeping between the good-natured soldier", as they formed a dense mass behind the ranks. The military were nnder the command of Colonel Stratton. The Royal standard waved from the top of tbe station. Her Majesty remained at Weedon about four minutes, while water was taken in the engine. This lapse of time aflorded ample opportunity to the people and the military to express their loyal satisfaction at her presence among them. The train arrived at the Tamwoitb station at a quarter to three o'clock. Sir Robert Peel was in readiness to receive her Majesty and ber royal Consort, who immediately pro- ceeded, followed by their suite, down the tteps of the station to the cairiages which were there in readiness. Here an escort of the Staffordshire yeomanry were in waiting to escort ber Majesty on to Drayton. Sir Robert Peel accompanied the Royal party on horseback. From Tamworth to Drayton Manor the scene was extremely aptendid. The new line of road from the station to the town, commonly called the Clarence-terrace, was beantifnlly decorated with galleries and festoons of flowers. On the approach to the town the scene was exceediegly beautiful. At a splendid arch at the end of the Clarence-road, the Corporation, through tbe Mayor, according to ancient costom, presented the mace and other insignia of office. They also delivered, in the name of the Corporation, appro- priate addresses, which her Majesty and Prince Albert were graciously pleased to receive.—The ronte to Drayton Manor, distant about three miles from tbe station, was Serformed in less than half an hour. Tbe road through 'Onchill and along to Drayton was thronged with people of all classes, who gave her Majesty a most hearty reception. The royal party arrived at Drayton Manor at a qnarter to four o'clock. We perceive by the Paris Moniteur of Monday, that the French Chambers are convoked for the 27th of next month.—On the above day the French Ministry received a telegraphic dispatch from Madrid, announc- ing the formation of the new Spanish Cabinet, as follows: M. OIOuga, President of the Council and Minister of Foreign Affairs; M. Luzurriaga, Grace and Justice; M., Doinenecq, Interior; M. Caniero, Finance; M. Serrano, War; and M. Friars, Marine. The triumph of M. Olozaga, after the declaration he had made in the Chamber of Deputies, on tbe necessity of taking the Queen out of the hands of any persons who might attempt to exercise influence over her mind. is very significative of the course that he intends to pursue. The Royal authority will now, of necessity, the Qnpen being totally unfit to govern from her tender years, be a mere fiction, and Spain will henceforth be at the mercy of the strongest faction in the Cortes. Altogether, from beginning to end, the revolution against Espartero has been one of senseless nmbition *nd blind folly.—IW. Bresson, the new Ambassador of France in Spain, left Paris for Madrid on Saturday last. The Pasha steamer, arrived yesterday, brings liiebon papers to the 23d, and from Cadiz to the AWth inst.—At Lisbon the greatest tranquility prevailed, and all pros- pects of its being disturbed bad entirely disappeared. The Chambers were occupied with measures to cover tbe deficit of the current financial year, but the remiss- ness of Members caused a frequent failure of Houses —General Yriarte. and the officers and troops who had retreated with him from Spaija into Portugal, after having pursued the strict itinerary marjtedout for them from Ponte de Lima to Braga stepped from the 10th to the 13th inst, at Braga. On the latter day, Yriarte, with several of the Officers in his company set out for Oporto, and shortly afterwards the bulk of the soldiers took the same direction.—On the 15th, Yriarte arrived at Oporto with hie Staff and tbe 250 remaining men. When tbey reached tbe suburbs of that city they rested there until the-Accessary documents could be made out for the literal fji{fiJ<nent of the orders of the Govern- ment. They are to be quartered, it appears in the town. Accounts from Athens of the 10th state that King Otho, by the advice of his Ministers, had called M.A. Mavrocordato and M. Colletti to his Council, and that they woutd henceforth take a part in the general affairs Jff the State. A hundred and fifty deputies had arrived at Athens- The Chambers were to meet about tbe 24th instant. His Majesty is described as taking an active part in the Government of the country. -The Augsburg Gazette states, from Athens, Nov. 6, that the Austrian Government has recognised the new state of things in Greece. The Duke and Duchess of Nemours took leave of the Queen and Prince Albert at Windsor Castle, Monday morning, and proceeded tor Town, where, after attending Mass in the Chapel of the French Ambassador, proceeded with their snite to Woolwich Dockyard, where they were received by Sir F. Collier, Captain Superintendant, Major- General Sir Hew D. Ross, and other Officers, and a Guard of Honour, and embarked on board the L'Archimede, French war Steamer, under the command of Admiral Casv, under a royal salute, aivd proceeded down the river.—The Marquis of Orotpnde, Lord-in-Waiting on the Queen, and Colonel Wylde, Equerry to Prince Albert, atleuded their Royal Highnesses to Woolwich. Mr. Newman, surgeon to the Wells Union, was dis- missed by the Poor-Law Commissioners, for practising homocopathicatty among the poor confided to his care, the Commissioners having previously obtained the opinion of the College of Physicians that a person practising homoeopathy exclusively is altogether nnht to act as a medical officer to aD1 Union. The proprietors of the daily newspapers bave it in contemplation to raise the prices of their papers from 5d. to 6d.-Consideriu, the increased size of their sheets and the enormous expense incurred in procuring intelligence from all parts of the world, and that hourly on the increase, it is only surprising this resolution had not been adopted sooner, as, at the present price, some must gain a loss." DEATH OF Sm GRAHAM MOORP.—We have to an- nounce the death of the above gallant Admiral, at Brook Farm, Cobham, on Friday last, at an advanced age. He was the third son of Dr. Moore, by the daughter of Pro- fessor Simpson, of Glasgow, and brother to Sir John Moore, who fell at Cornnna.
