THE MAYOR'S JUBILEE MEDAL. ———*——— On Monday the Mayor of Chester (Mr. B. C. Roberts) received from Sir M. W. Ridley, the Home Secretary, the Jubilee medal given by her Majesty the Queen to the chief magistrates of municipalities in the United Kingdom. Accompaning the gift was the following letter:— Whitehall, 7th September. Sir,—I have received the Queen's commands to transmit to you the accompanying medal which her Majesty has been graciously pleased to confer upon you on the completion of the 60th year of her reign. I have to request that you will be good enough to send me an acknowledgment of the receipt of this decoration.—I am, sir, your obedient servant, M. W. RIDLKY. The Mayor of the city of Chester." The medal is of solid silver, diamond shaped, with light and dark blue striped ribbon attach- ment. On the one side is the effigy of her Majesty, around which, within a laurel border- ing, are inscribed the words, Victoria annum regni sexagesimum feliciter clausit, xx Jan., MDCCCXCVII.' Then on the obverse are the Words, Longicudo dierum in dextra ejus et in ainistra gloria," with an effigy of the Queen in her earlier days and the date 1837. It is an exceedingly plain decoration, enclosed in a red morocco leather case, on the outside of which is a gilt embossed crown and underneath the dates 1837-1897. The medal is now on view in the window of Messrs. Lowe & Sons, Bridge Street Row.
