THE COUIV- The Queen and the junior members of tho Royal who have been sojourning at Osborne since the 8sh of July, left the Isle of Wight, on Wednesday, for Windsor, whara her Majesty remained one night, and then proceeded to Scotland by the usual route. Their Royal Highnesses Prince and Princess Christian re- turned from the Continent on Wednesday, and met her Majesty at Windsor. DURING the tima the Qaeen remained at Osborne, her Majesty was in excellent health, and took her accustomed out-door exercise. ON Sunday the Queen, Princess Louise, Prince Arthur, Prince Leopold,and Princess Beatrice attended Divine service at Osborne. The Ladies and Gentlemen ia Waiting were also present. The Rev. George Pro- ithero officiated. LADY CHURCHILL has Buocaeded Lady Waterpark as Lady in Waiting. DURING her Majesty's absence from Windsor ex- tensive alterations hava been made in the north wing of the castle by Messrs. Meyers, of London, under the scientific direction of Mr. Salvin, of the Adelphi. About a dozen rooms looking on to the North-terrace, appropriated to the use of noblemen and equerries in Waiting, have been stripped of the boarding and panel- ling, considered dangerous in case of fire. These rooms will be newly fitted up ald-edecorated in a style more suitable for the accommodation of the distinguished personages who may occupy them. The improvements extend to the tailing dowia of the present grand stair- case, at the state entrance, which is used by visitors as they enter the state apartments; a portion of the groined ceiling being considered out of character with the architecture of the castle, will be taken down and rebuilt. The new grand staircase will be so arranged as almost to reverse its present position. The fine statue in marble of George IV. on the landing will Hot be removed from its present position.
