FASHIONABLES, LITERATURE, fee. The King has given a subscription of 1001. and the Queen another of 501. towards the repairs of the Brighton Chain Pier. Sir H. Taylor has also subscribed 10J. HER MAJESTY—At a dinner given the other day to Mr. Clay, one of the representatives of the Tower Hamlets, the health of his Majesty's Minis- ters was given from the chair, and we are informed, was drank without a single cheer; but when the health of the Queen was given, the room rung again with acclamations. Tire venerable Earl of Chatham is gone to Brignton for six months. This amiable Nobleman, notwithstanding the retired habits of his life, and his extreme taciturnity in general society, was held in the highest esteem by his brother, the Right Hon. William Pitt. It was always understood that Mr. Pitt took the advice of Lord Chatham on all impor- tant measures relating to finance. The sinecure "Governorship of Gibraltar, salary and emoluments, 4,000'. per annum, held by his Lordship since the demise of the Duke of Kent in 1820, will, it is gene- rally believed, be abolished at the Earl's death, when the Earldom will become extinct. THE LATE EARL or PLYMOUTH.-A very hand- some -,u rii has beeu subscribed by the Members of the Worcestershire Yeomanry Cavalry towards a monu- ment to the memory of their late Colonel, the Earl of Plymouth. SIR PETER LAURIE.—A piece of plate of the value of 339 guineas was presented to the Lord Mayor of London (Sir Peter Laurie) by many of the citizens for his services during his mayoralty. The new building for the Carlton Conserva- the Club" is to cost upwards of 21,000/. Mr. Smirke is the architect Messrs. Hunt and Bennett obtained the contract. There were seven tenders selected from which to make the choice. There was not 10001. difference between the offers of any of those candidates. LAVDABLE ASSIDUITY.—It appears from the evi- dence of Lord Fitzroy Somerset before the Committee of the House of Commons that during the six years his lordship has discharged the duties of Military Secretary to the General Commanding in Chief, namely, since 1827, he has not been absent .from the Horse Guards more th&n a fortnight at a time. Sir Herbert Taylor, it seems, found the duties of the appointment so oner- ous that he resigned it. The salary is now 2,000/. per annum it was formerly 2,5001. Lord Firzroy re- turned to his residence in the Stable-yard from a brief visit to Brighton, where his eldest son. Lieutenant Arthur Somerset, is doing duty at the Palace with a detachment of the Grenadier Guards. Mr. George Beilinghani Graham, the eldest son 0" Sir Belliugham Graham, Bart. and heir to the baronetcy, enlisted as a private into the Royal Horse Guards (blue) on Wednesday last. The Brightonian Reformers very 11 (lisititer- estedly" say that the King has now another glorious opportunity of distinguishing himself, without giving any offence to the Lord, he might create a Pier for Brighton." On Tuesday, Mile. Dosne, the daughter of the Receiver General of the department of Finisterre attained her 15th year, and was married to M. Thiers, Minister of Commerce. The lady is small, pretty, and above all, very rich, having, it is said, a fortune o 2,000,000f.—Galiynaiti.
