I A StfilES OF ANNIVERSARIES. The present week (says the Daily Chronicle) is curiously rich in anniversaries connected with the Throne. To-day marks the fifty-seventh anniversary of the marriage of the Queen to the Prince Consort, which took place in St. James's Pal ac$. It is also tho 520-ii anni vutBury of the murder of Lord Darnley, the husband of Mary Qiieon of Scots. Last Monday, again, was the 310h anniversary of t.he execution of Mary Queea of Scots in Foiheritigay Castle, aud the 29-5til i aunivorsary of the execution of the ill-hOed favourite of Queen Elizabeth, the Earl of Essex, the two ciiibi events which in those days did most to uiiite tiie titree countries. The death of the Queeti put an end to troubles in Scotland, whilst tlie other undoubtedly closed the Irish rebellion. Going still further back, 763 years ago to-day, Robert of Normandy, eldest sou of the Conqueror, was Murdered in Cardiff Castle, I by order of his brother, Henry L, the K;II who for 15 yef.is is said to have never smiled. Yester- day, 181 years ngo, the great Scotch Earls of Der went water, Kelimure, and others, suffered ou the block at Tower-bill for crimes which were more or less the outcome of the brutal massacre of the olau of the Macdonalds in the valley of Giencoe, the anniversaiy of which occurs next Saturday. On Sunday last, 400 years ago, Geoige, Duke of Clatsnce, was condemned to death for treason. Finally Friday next is the anniversary of tho execution of two Queens of England, the being Catherine Howard in 1542, and the second Lp.cly G.y, the unhappy Q>en J;;JIP, her b«5«b,w!. Lord Gnldford Dudley, in 1584. "'ioO. 'rU"M'
