I THE KING IN PORTUGAL. I Royal Sight-seeing. King Edward and King Carlos made, on the 3rd inst., an excursion to the beautiful Royal castle at Cintra. Returning to Lisbon in the evening, the two Sovereigns held a reception of the Diplomatic Corps, and King Edward received deputations from the Chambers. Later on there was a brilliant firework display on the Tagus. The public enthu- siasm over the King's visit continues unabated in Lisbon and throughout Portugal. The newspapers have devoted much of their space to the subject, and the Diario particularly contained a series of signed articles by eminent Portuguese writers and statesmen on the importance and significance of the British alliance. I [A Shower of Roses. King Edward drove through Lisbon on Satur. day morning, accompanied by the Marquis De Soveral, and had a great popular welcome. At the Geographical Society's Museum, his Majesty, escorted by Dom Carlos, ascended a dais amid a shower of rose leaves from ladies in the gallery. Replying to an address, the King said tho alliance and the friendly relations of England and Por- tugal, which dated back for centuries, were never closer or more cordial than now. When he left Portugal there would be engraved upon his heart the memory of the enthusiasm of his reception by the Portuguese people. At night the King at- tended a gala performance at the Opera, and the audience responded with great heartiness to the call of the President of the Municipal Council, "Long live King Edward, Queen Alexandra, and the Royal House of England!" A member of the Chamber of Deputies called for cheers for the King, which were given with boundless en- thusiasm. The King, after attending service at the English Church on Sunday, received ad- dresses from the British residents in Lisbon and Oporto, and replied to them, laying stress on the friendly relations of the two countries. After opening the British Club, his Majesty left for Cascaes, where King Carlos has a summer resid- ence. His Majesty at a Bull Fight. A bull fight was given in honour of King Edward in Lisbon on the afternoon of the 6th inst. A Portuguese bull-fight being devoid of the barbarous features of those in Spain, his Majesty was able to attend it, and there was a brilliant assemblage of fifteen thousand people. When the King, followed by Dom Carlos, en- tered the Royal box, the vast company rose and gave an enthusiastic cheer. The preliminaries of the encounter were most picturesque, and the contests between the bulls and cavalheiros very exciting; but no incident occurred to mar the display of daring and horsemanship, and not a horse was scratched. The bulls left the arena with only a few punctures in the neck. Before the bull-fight the King reviewed the 3rd Cavalry Regiment, of which he is Honorary Colonel, and later his Majesty attended a concert at the Palace of the Queen Dowager.. At the State dinner on Sunday night, the King, replying to the toast of his health, said he hoped the alliance between England and Portugal would last for all time.
