THE COURT. AT the present moment there may be said to be no Court. The Queen has fairly started on her German tour. Her Majesty has, as usual, been fortunate in her choice of weather; for, though we have had storms in England, it has been perfectly fine in Germany. Earl Granville is the minister in attend- ance. The Prince and Princess of Wales, after spending a few days at Marlborough-house, also tarted on the German tour. HER MAJESTY THE QUEEN, with the junior members of the Royal Family, are expected to arrive at Wind- sor Castle from Germany on Friday, the 15th ot September. THEIR Eoyal Highnesses the Prince and Princess of Wales will arrive in England at the same time.. THE projected alliance between the Crown Prince Frederic of Denmark and Princess Louisa, only child of the Swedish sovereign, has been recently resumed on the occasion of the interchange of visits between Charles XV. and Christian IX. The Princess is in her seventeenth year. WE understand, says the Court Journal, there is still a prospect of the Prince and Princess of Wales visiting Dunrobin Castle this season. The Duke and Duehess of Sutherland are expected in a few days at the castle, where a Urilliant company of visitors is ex- pected next month.. # THE Prince of Wales is, we believe, the first Prince of the Blood who has owned a yacht since the days of Charles II. George IV., William IV., and our gracious Queen Victoria have had what are termed Royal yaohts, but they are more state vessels than pleasure vessels'- It will be a gratifying sight to witness the Heir to the Throne on board the Dagmar, a cutter of six-and-thirty tons, accompanying the English fleet to Cherbourg. Every one loved the Sailor King," and the "Prince" will also be endeared to his future sub- jects by his love for manly pursuits.
