DAILY LIFE OF THE QUEEN. We learn the following particulars from the London correspondent of the Boston (U,S.) Journal:- Her Majesty lives in great retirement. She is seldom seen about Windsor. She has a private station at which she arrives in the train. She has private grounds in which she drives. Servants complain bitterly of the quiet and inactivity of everything royaL The horses are unused, and the stablemen yawn in indolence. Little company is received. The state plate has never been used since the death of Prince Albert Her private apartments are inider the charge of Highlander, named Brown. He is the Queen's domestic prime minister, and has more influence over her than Derby. He attends her Majesty to and from London, and gives orders with imperial grace. He holds his position to the intense disgust of the English members of the royal house- hold. On State occasions he goes bare-legged, and the servants who do his will, coming from the Queen's private apartments, wear the same significant Highland costume. The Queen does not attend the royal chapels, either ia London or Windsor, as she dislikes to be gazed at. She has private chapels at Windsor and Buckingham, where øh. worships. When public duties call her to St. George's ChapeL she enters her closet, which is merely a bay window jutting into the chapel covered with curtains, and adorned simply with purple, from which she can see all and be seen by none. She has her own special servants, through whom all orders are issued. Even the crowd of men who wear the royal livery and sleep under the same roof, do not see the Queen from one year's end to another. Her drives are all private. The Home Park has a drive of six miles. The royal forest at Windsor extends over 100 miles in extent; so the Queea need not suffer for want of exercise. The elegant State horses champ and snort in the stables, while the Queen,. In a low-backed wagon, a low-wheel carriage, and her stubbf pony takes a drive.
