THE COUBT. THE Court has been held at Osborne during the past week. The Prince and Princess of Wales have been stayisg with her Majesty on a visit. THE weather has been so inclement that her Majesty and the Royal Princesses have confined themselves to the Palace and grounds. His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales embarked on board the steam yacht Alberta at half-past eleven on Saturday morning, and crossed from Osborne- house to Portsmouth. A salute of 21 guns was fired from almost every ship in the harbour. His Royal Highness, accompanied by Colonel Ponsoilby and Captain Grey, disembarked at the new landing-place, where the Prince was received by Admiral Sir Michael Seymour, G.C.B. A single post-chaise, supplied by the Queen's post-master, was in waiting, into which his Royal Highness and attendants entered. The Prince made a complete detour of the fortifications at and about Portsmouth. At about five o'clock his Royal Highness again embarked, under a Royal salute, the bands on board each ship playing the "National Anthem." There has not been such saluting at this port since the death of the Prince Consort. His Royal nghness returned to Osborne the same evening. MONDAY, the 13th inst., is the day at present fixed for her Majesty's return from Osborne to Windsor, where the Queen will remain until after Easter. THEIR Royal Highnesses the Prince and Princess of Wales will, it is supposed, reside partly at Marl- borough-house, and partly at Frogmore-lodge, during the spring. THE Prince of Wales has given 100 guineas in aid of the Licensed Victuallers' Building Fund.
