ACCOUCHEMENT OP HER MAJESTY. BIRTH OF A PRINCE. The nation's bopee and expectations are realised: lier Majesty, shortly before eleven o'clock, on Tues- day morning, was safely delivered of a son. This interesting event will rejoice every friend of the monarchy, the empire, and the house of Hanover, and will fill every manly, every tender and affectionate heart, with sentiments higher even than those of loyalty. Long live the Queen and the Prince of Wales! Long live the lovely young mother, to be blessed in the Jove of her children, and in the noble qualities which they must derive from her Her Majesty was taken unwell about seven o'clock in the morning, and immediately afterwards informa- tion was sent to the Home-office, and instructions given to summon the immediate attendance of the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Bishop of London. Sir Robert Peel, the Lord Chancellor, the Duke of Wellington, Sir James Graham, and other great officers of State, who lost no time in repairing to the Palace. The Cabinet ministers were attired in tOle Windsor uniform. It was not supposed at seven o'clock that her Majesty's accouchement was so near at hand; but on the first symptoms manifesting themselves every pre- paration and every arrangement for so interesting and important an event, an event to which millions of her Majesty's loyal subjects have been looking with the greatest anxiety-were made, and not a moment was lost in sending notice to our beloved Sovereign's mother, and the other branches of the Royal Family. The Duchess of Kent arrived at Buckingham Palace exactly at nine o'clock, and immediately repaired to the room of her Majesty, who was at that time attended by Sir James Clarke, Dr. Locock, and Mr. Blagden. Prince Albert was also in attendance, and manifested the most intense interest in the important event, which it was now evident was about to take place. In the room adjoining, the Great Officers of State and Cabinet Ministers were assembled, and imme- diately on the birth of a Prince the Royal infant was carried by the nurse (Mrs. Lilly) and shown to them, when a declaration was signed by those present as to the birth of an heir to the British Throne. Sir R. Peel, the Earl of Aberdeen, Sir James Graham, and the other Cabinet Ministers, left the Palace shortly after eleven o'clock, when instructions were immediately given at the Council Office, to sum- mon a Privy Council, to be held without delay. At the express desire of her Majesty (we under- stand) a messenger belonging to the Home office, was dispatched to Sudbury Hall, to announce the happy event to her Majesty the Queen Dowager, The bells of the various metropolitan churches rang merry peals as soon as the important event Was known. Shortly before one o'clock the following official bulletin, announcing her Majesty's accouchement, and the birth of » Prince, was "published: — .1 The Queen was safely delivered of a Prince this morning, at 48 minutes past ten o'clock. Her Majesty and the Infant Prince are perfectly well," (Signed) James Clark, M.D. Charles Locock, M.D. Robert Ferguson, M.D. Richard Blagden. Dated Buckingham Palace, Tuesday, No 9, 141. Half past eleven o clock. PRIVY COUNCIL. At two o'clock the follo wing members of her r Maj. sty's Most Honourable Privy Council assembled at the Council Office, WhitehallHis Royal High- ness Prince Albert, the Lord Chancellor, the Right Hon. Sir II Peel, First Lord of the Treasury the Kight Hon. H. Goulburu, Chancellor of the Exche- qu er; the Lord President of the Council, Lord WharnclilFe; the Lord Privy Seal, the Duke of Buckingham, andChandos: the Secretaries of State for the Home, Foreign, and Colonial Departmen s the President of the Buard of Control, the First Lord of the Admiralty, the President of the Board of Trade, and the Secretary of War. There were also present, the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Bishop of London, the Earl of Liverpool (Lord Steward), the Karl Delawarr (Lord Chamberlain). At the Council the Archbishop ot Canterbury was requested to prepare a form of prayer and thanks- giving (to be used in all churcnes aud chapels) to Almighty God, for the safe deliverance of her Majesty and the birth of a heir to the British throne. A copy of the above bulletin was forwarded to the Lord Mayor during the morning. It is rather a remarkable circumstance that the Infant Prince of Wales should have been born on the morning of Lord Mayor's day, only a few hours after Mr. Alderman Pirie had been sworn into office, and who is now in consequence entitled to a baronetcy. It is, however, generally supposed that the honour will be conferred both on the present Lord Mayor and his predecessor, Mr. Aldermau Johnson. In the course of the day government messengers were dispatched to Foreign Courts, with the import- ant and gratify iug intelligence of the birth of a Heir to the Throne of the British Realms. In consequenee of her Majesty being so well, orders were given at t-"O o'clock for firing the Park guns. The illustrious infant is a remarkably fine, full. grown, robust, well-proportioned, and healthy child. The young Prince is by birth the Duke of Cornwall, and will, in the course of a day or two, be created Prince of Wales. The Duke of Cornwall, at his birth, is considered of full age in his capacity as possessor of that Duchy, and immediately succeeds to the enjoyment, for his separate use, of all its revenues, &c. The first Duke of Cornwall, was Prince Edward, the eldest son of King Edwalll the Third, who in 11337, very little more than five centuries since, created him to that high dignity, being the first in Fngland who bore the title <>f Duke. The young Prince was invested with the dukedom by a wreath ou his head. a ring on his finger, and a silver verge in his hand at the same time the King created six Karis and twenty Knights, £ inee this time the eldest son of the Monarch of England, is born Duke of Cornwall.
