IT is said that apartments are being fitted up at the British Embassy in Paris for the Prince of Wales, though the name of the Princess has also been added. must be premature, albeit it is most gratifying to hear that great progress has taken place in the health of her Royal Highness. The Royal Family went about to the Fine Art Collections during the Easter week, which opened to the public the following Monday. THE Queen, it has been reported, would visit Coburg this year, but the present complication in foreign poli- tics makes this doubtful.

There are many changes and improvements going on, more especially in the laying out of the ornamental gardens. One of the additions is to be a cricket-ground. The visit c f the Prince and Princess of Prussia to this country, which was to have taken place this year, has been deferred. In fact, everything seems to depend upon war or no war.
