DEPARTURE OF THE SULTAN. On Tuesday morning the visit of the Sultan to London terminated. At ten o'clock the Royal car- riages were drawn up in front of Buckingham Palace and shortly afterwards his Royal Highness the Prince of Wales arrived with the Duke of Cambridge, and had an interview with the Sultan. Before half-past ten the cortege, which consisted of sixteen covered car- nages, left Buckingham Palace, and proceeded to Charing-cross Station, through the Mall, the Horse Guards,, and Parliament-street. The way was kept by detachments of the Life Guards, who also furnished the escort. At Charing-cross and in Trafalgar-square a very considerable number of spectators had assem- bled. Many windows were occupied by ladies, and, the police having stopped the traffic in the St rand, the tops of omnibuses were soon crowded with curious spectators, who, nevertheless, were not destined to obtain even a passing glimpse of the Sultan. At several points on the route there was much cheer- ing. Inside the station were several hundred ladies and gentlemen. A large red carpet had been laid along the departure platform, and a guard of honour of the Coldstream Guards, with their band, was drawn up be- fore the special train. As his Majesty stepped out of the carriage, the band played the Turkish national air, and there was loud cheering, which the Sultan graciously' acknowledged. In less than five minutes all the prepar^10118 were complete, and the triiill--all unusually long one for a special started at ten minutes to eleven i'cr Dover. The Prince of Wales accompa.nied the iiluscious visitor. In the suite of the Sultan were more tlll,u seventy persons. On Tuesday morning the Lord Mavor of London received from Fuad Pasha, the Turkish Minister for Foreign Affairs, a communication in the French language, forwarding a donation by his Imperial Majesty the Sultan of 2,500?. to he disMfeuted amongst the indigent classes or the City of Tjo/sdon.—Simuh taneously with this donation by the Sulta^V a splendid present by the Viceroy of Egypt to he Lady Mayoress was received by her Ladyship, as a token of the munificent hospitality shown to him at the recent entertainment given at the Mansion-house in honour of his Highness. It is a brooch of exquisite beauty and great intrinsic value, being composed of ne magnificent pearl, surrounded by sixteen brilliants of the finest water, with' eight radi, tiO of brilliant; terminated by others equally large, while depending from the centre pearl, which is of extra- ordinary size, are chains of diamonds supporting four large pear-shaped pearls. This beautiful souvenir was presented to the Lady Mayoress, in the name of the Viceroy, by Mr. Larking, the agent of his Highness in this country, with. many expressions of good will. /IOMoIII!=:=.c,.
