N - S 3 2 SUNDAY, JULY 22; 1821. P r i c k sjrf, This Paper is published at an early hour every SUNDAY Morning, at " THE NEWS" Office, No. 28, Brvdges- street, and distributed throughout the Metropolis AMI within the Two- penny Post District, by Nine o ' C l o c k . — N o Advertisements of any description are ever inserted in this Paper. TIIS QUEEN, ' PUS KING, AND TlIE CORONATION. WE thus head this article because the QUEEN, simply from her wrongs— her unmerited wrongs, claims in every feeling mind the first and highest place. In our last number we mentioned her MAJESTY'S intention of doing all in her power to shew that she did not tamely acquiesce in the indignity thrown on her by Ministers, and through her on future ' English Queens, by refusing her a participation ofthe honors of the Coronation with her Royal Husband. We shall now commence a concise Narrative, shewing in what manner her MAJESTY has re- Ui « mei her royal pledge. That the QUEEN might not by her enemies be supposed deficient in any of the legal means of securing a reception in Westminster Abbey, on the day of the KING'S Coronation, suitable to her rank and dignity, she some days ago directed Lord HOOD to write to the Duke of NORFOLK, the hereditary Earl Marshal of England, announcing her intention of being present at tiie ceremony. The following is the copy of the letter we allude t o :— '• M* LORD,— Her Majesty has commanded me to say, as it is her intention to be iu Westminster Abbey on the 19th inst., during the ceremony of the Coronation of the King, your Grace is required to appoint persons to receive her M. yesty at the door of the Abbey, to conduct her to her seat. Tiie hour her Majesty has named to be there is half- past eight o'clock. " I have the honor to be, tic. " Brandenburgh- housii; . July 15. " HOOD. " To his Grace the Duke of Norfolk," T o this letter the Duke of NORFOLK replied, that having delegated his authority at the ensuing ceremony to a deputy ( Lord HOWARD of EFFINGHAM), he had traniynitted to him her MAJESTY'S letter, which he doubted not would receive immediate attention. On Monday, last the acting Earl- Marshal sent Lord HOOD the following reply to the QUEEN'S application:— " 9, Mansfield- street, July 16. " Mr LORD.— The Duke of Norfolk having transmitted to me. as appointed So do the duties- of- the office of Earl Marshal of England at the ceremony of the approaching Coronation, your Lordship's letter to his Grace of the 15th instant, I thought it incumbent on me to lay tbe same before Viscount Sidmouth, the Secretary of State for the Home Department, and I have just learnt from his Lordship, in reply, that having received a letter dated the 11th inst. from the Queen, in which her Majesty was pleased to inform him pf her intention to be present at the ceremony of tbe 19th, the day itsed for his Majesty's Coronation, and to demand that a suitable place should be appointed for her- Majesty, he was commanded by the King to acquaint her Majesty, that it was not his Majesty's pleasure to comply with the application contained in her Majesty's letter; I have accordip. giv to request that your Lordship will- make my humble representation to her Majesty ofthe impossibility, under these circumstances, of my having the, honor of obeying her Mar jesty's commands. .•' I have the honor to be, my Lord, '•' Your Lordship's most obedient humble servant, ••' HOWARD, OF EFFINGHAM, Acting as Earl Marshal of England. " The Lord Viscount Ifood." We shall stop to make no other remark on this reply than 041 that part of it which mentions the reference the acting Earl Marshal chose to make of the QUEEN'S letter to the Home Secretary of State. What had tlie hereditary Earl- Marshal of England to do with Lord SIDMOUTH, or any other State Secretary? His office was as distinct from that ofthe latter as it was from the duties of the Archbishop of CANTISIU'RV ; and, in our opinion, if he could not exercise them without recurring' on every occasion- to the Home Secretary for directions, he was tlie most unfit man in the kingdom to exercise them. Be this as it may, Lord EFFINGHAM referred the matter to Lord SIDMOUTH— to the S^ ime man who, either from design or carelessness, a few days ago sent the QVEEN a letter unsigned and uiuuldressed, and froiii him such an answer it seems was received as might have been expected. . In this predicament no other way seemed open for her. MAJESTY but the publication o f t he following spirited, well- written Protest:— HER MAJESTY'S PROTEST AGAINST THE DECISION OF THE PRIVY COUNCIL, RELATIVE TO HER. CORONA TION. CAROLINE R. TO THE KING'S JIOST EXCELLENT MAJESTY. THE PROTEST AND REMONSTRANCE OF CAROLINE, QTEEN OF GREAT BRITAIN AND IRELAND. Your Majesty having been pleased to refer to your Privy Council the Quceu's memorial, claiming ts of right to celebrate the ceremony of her coronation on the 1.3th day of July, being the day appointed for the celebration of your Majesty's royal coronation, and Lord Viscount Sidmouth, one of your Majesty's Principal Secretaries of State, having communicated to the Queen the judgment pronouncing against her Majesty's claim; in order to preserve her just rights, and- those of her successors, and to prevent the said minute being in aftertimes referred to as deriving validity from her Majesty's supposed acquiescence in the determination therein expressed, the Queen feels it to be her bounden duty to enter her most deliberate and solemn protest against the said determination; and to affirm and maintain, that by the laws, usages, and customs of this realm, from time immemorial, the Queen- Consort ought of right to be crowned at the same time with the King's Majesty. In support of this claim of right her Majesty's law officers have proved before the said Council, from the most ancient and authentic records, that Queens- Consort of this realm have, from time immemorial, participated in the ceremony of the coronation - with their royal husbands. The few exceptions that occur demonstrate, . from the peculiar circumstances in which they originated, that the right itself was never questioned, though the exercise of it was from necessity suspended, or from motives of policy declined. Her Majesty has been taught to believe that the most valuable laws of this country depend upon, and derive their authority from, custom ; that your Majesty's royal prerogatives stand upon the same basis: the authority of ansient usage cannot therefore be rejected without shaking that foundation upon which the most important rights and institutions of the country depend. Your Majesty's Council, however, without controverting any of the facts or reasons npon which thu claim made on the part of her Majesty has been supported, have expressed a judgment in opposition to the existence of such right. But the. Queen can. place no confidence in that judgment,, when she recollects that the principal individuals by whom- it has been pronounced were formerly her s- uceessful defenders; that rlieir opinions hatte varied with their interest, and that they have since become the most active and powerful of her persecutors: still less can she confide in it, when her Majesty calls to mind that the leading members of that cou- ticil, when in the service of your Majesty's roval father, reported in the most solemn form, that documents reflecting upon her Majesty were satisfactorily disproved as to the most important parts, and that the remainder was undeserving of credit. Under this declared conviction, they strongly recommended to your Majesty's royal father to bestow his favor upon the Queen, then Princess of Wales, though in. opposition to your Majesty's declared wishes. But when vour Majesty had assumed the kingly power, these same advisers, in another minute of council, recanted their former judgment;, and referred to and adopted these very same documents as a justification of one of yon- r Majesty's harshest measures towards the Queen— the separation of lier Majesty from her affectionate and only child. Tlie Queen, like your. Majesty, descended from a long race of Kings, was the • daughter of a sovereign house connected by tbe tie's of blood with the most illustrious families in Europe, and her not unequal alliance with your Majesty was formed in full confidence- that the faith of the King and the people was equally pledged to secure to her all those honors and rights which liad been enjoyed by her Royal predecessors. In that alliance her Majesty believed that site exchanged the protection. of her family for that of a Royal husband and of a free and noble- minded nation. From your Majesty the Queen has experienced only the bitter disappointment of every hope she had indulged. In the attachment of the people she has- found that powerful and decided protection which has, ever been her steady support and her unfailing consolation. Submission from a subject to injuries of a private nature may be matter of expedience— from a wife it may be matter of necess ily— but it never can be the duty of a Queen to ucquiesce in the infringement of those rig/ its which belong lo herconslituionat character. The Qween decs'therefore repent her iccst soknua and deliberate protest against the decision of the said Council, considering it only as the sequel of that course of persecution under which her Majesty has so long ar. d so scverelysuffered, and which decision, if it is to furnish a precedent for future times, can have no other effect than io f o r t i f y oppression with the forms of lac, and to give to injustice the sanction of authority. The protection of the subject, from the highest to the lowest, is not only the true but the only legitimate object of all power; and no act of power can be legitimate which is not founded on those principles of eternal justice, without which law is but the mask of tyranny, and power tbe instrument of despotism. - Queen's House, July 17. We shall at present no otlierways comment on this protest than to say, that for beauty of language, bojdnessof diction, and elegance of style, it never has been surpassed by any state ptiper ever published. The hireling prints in the pay of the Treasury have been ordered te abuse it, fur that is the only way by which - Ministers can parrv the truths contained in it relative to their mean, servile conduct towards their Royal Mistress and QUEEN. The publication of this protest immediately preceded her MAJESTY'S endeavour to deliver it personally into the hands of the KING on the dav'of his Coronation. For this purpose she proceeded, or, Thursday morning, as early as 6 o'clock, from her house in South Audley- street, to Westminster- abbey. The following account of Iter reception we publish by authority :— " Her Majesty set cut- from her house in South Audlaystreet, and proceeding through the Parks to Westminsterabbey, went to Dean's- yard, where her Majesty got cut. of her carriage, in expectation of being allowed to enter, t at was refused at two doors of entrance; and her carriage- having drawn off, her Majesty was obliged to wait in the passage tLl it was called back, when her Majesty proceeded towards Poets' Corner, ar. d again got out of her carriage to Oid Palace- yard, and sought admittance by two temporary doers, which, upon her Majesty's approach, icere shut in her face ; after which, some of the people pointed out the opening to the platform. Vpon ascending this, her Majesty was again obstructed by- the Police Officers, till anOfficer, it is believed cf the Guards, politely allowed her Majesty to cross the piriform^ and her Majesty walked frcm thence to 03: 3 Palaceyard, and entered first the passage to Cotton- garden; after which, her Majesty proceeded - along the covered way to Poets' Corner, and when arrived at the door, was refused admittance without tickets, upon which Lord Hood produced one and was informed it would only admit one person, upon which Lord Hood observed, lie did not suppose the Queen required a ticketof admission; to which one ofthe persons appointed for the admission of the company observed, he did aot know the Queen, ar. d positively forbade her Majesty from entering; and one ofthe Poor Knights of Windsor came up ami said there was no place fur her Majesty. Finding every effort to gain admittance ineffectual, her Majesty returned So her carriage, and proceeded to Whitehall, Pall- mall, and St. James's- street, Piccadilly, to her house, attended by an immense concourse of people, manifesting their respect to their Queen, and expressing their indignation at the ' ioeXimpfed treatment experienced by her Majesty. Although ibe different persons at the door of the Abbey were all uader orders to say they did not know her Majesty, it is to be observed that her Majesty came in the Royal State Carriage, and that tjie Guards, wherever she passed, presented arms. " Queen's House, July 19,1821." From other sources we. have collected the - following particulars:— At six o'clock lotid shouts of applause were heard in the direction of Dean- street, leading towards the western door of Westminster- abbey. These announced the approach ofthe Queen. Her carriage was drawn by six beautiful bay- horses, elegantly caparisoned, and accompanied by Lady Hood and Lady Ann Hamilton. Another carriage followed, drawn by two horses, and containing Lord Hobd and the Hoh. K'eppc- 1 ! Craven, as we understood. She passed the barrier, without t interruption, and prceeeded by. the King's Arms tave- ra to nearly opposite the door of Westminster- hall. Her Ma e there stopped for a few moments, apparently uncertain . f course to- Sake, as she had hitherto met with no obs' ftTtfi yet had racsived nothing like an invitation to At this morr. efft' the forfirtgs cf the spectators -- • 8r< preach.

In lhe mean time great confusion seemed to prevail among the officers and soldiers on and near the platform; the former giving orders and retracting them, and the latter running to their arms, uncertain whether they should salute her by presenting them or not. Astonishment, hurry, and confusion, seemed to agitate the whole multitude assembled either to witness or compose the ensuing pageant.— We never remember to have observed more unequivocal symptoms of pain or horror than were manifested by people of the most opposite sentiments, when they saw their Queen treated like an alien or outcast, by the servants, and at the festive hall, of her husband. Every heart thrilled with pity or indignation. These feelings were increase! as she alighted from her carriage and proceeded on foot, leaning on tbe arm of Lord Hood, and accompanied by the faithful companions of her affliction. Lady Hood and Lady Anne Hamilton, to demand admission. The approach of the Queen towards the Hall- door produced a considerable sensation within: there was an immense rush to the door, which was closed amidst mucR confusion. The officer on guard ( we believe Colonel M-' Kinnon) was immediately summoned to the spot, and asked her Majesty for her ticket. She replied that she had none, and as Qneen of England needed none: he professed his sorrow, but said he must . obey orders, and that his orders were to see that no person whatever should be admitted without a ticket. Her Majesty then retired. They then went to the door of the Duchy of Lancaster, behind the Champion's stable, and had the door shut in their faces. They then turned round, and leaving the royal carriage behind, proceeded to demand admission at another entrance. The same intense sensation of interest and the same applause continued to follow her. When she arrived nearly at the other extremity of the platform.— that which was opposite to the central pavilion— her further progress was arrested by a file of about a dozen soldiers, who were suddenly ordered to form across the platform. Her Majesty then quitted it, and went straight on to the House of Lords on foot, there to repeat the same request, and with the same success. In about 20 minutes she returned, and having ordered the top ofher carriage to bo taken down, rode off, amid the astonishment and acclamations of the people. We subjoin the following account from The Courier of her Majesty's reception at the door cf Westminster- abbey:— " Lord Hood having desired admission for her Majesty, " The door- keepers drew across the entrance, and requested to see the tickets. " Lord Hood.—" I present you your Queen; surely it is not necessary for her to have a tioket." " Door- keeper.—" Our orders are to admit no person without a Peer's ticket." " Lord Hood.—" This is your Queen : she is entided to admission without such a form." " The Queen, smiling, but still in some agitation.—" Yes, I am your Queen, will you admit mes?" • " Door- keeper.—" My orders are specific, and I feel myself bound to obey them." " The Queen laughed. « Lord Hood.—" I have a ticket." " Door- keeper.—" Then, my Lord, we will let you pass upon producing it." " Lord Hood now drew from his pocket a Peer's ticket for one person; the original name in whose favour it was drawn was erased, and the name o f " Wellington" substituted. " Door- keeper.—" This will let one person pass and no more." " Lord Hood.—" Will your Majesty go in alone ?" " Her Majesty at first assented, but did not persevere. " Lord Hood.—" Am I to understand that you refuse her Majesty admission?'' " Door- keeper.— We only act in conformity with our orders." " Her Majesty again laughed. " Lord Hood.—" Then you refuse the Queen admission ?" " A door- keeper of a superior order then came forward, and was asked by Lord Hood whether- any preparations had been made for her Majesty? He answered respectfully in the negative. " Lord Hood-—" Will your Majesty enter the Abbey without your Ladies?" " Her Majesty declined. " Lord Hood then said, that her Majesty had belter retire j to her carriage. It was clear no provision had been made j for Ker accommodation. " Her Majesty assented. " Some persons within the porch of the Abbey laughed, ' and uttered some expressions of disrespect. " Lord Hood.—" We sspected to have met at least with ! the conduct of gentlemen. Such conduct is neither manly I nor mannerly." " Her Majesty . then retired, leaning on Lord Hood's arm, j and followed by Lady Hood and Lady Hamilton." Whilst the Queen was moving at a very slow, pace beside I the platform, she wa3 frequendy interrupted by the immense j numbers who pressed around the cartiage. creetivg her with • loud cheers, and entreating to be permitted to unharness the horses, and draw the carriage themselves. These demonstrations of regard were not confined to the humbler spectators ; she was- received by all with the same enthusiasm.— In a box, called the " Royal Eclipse," and which was thronged with spectators apparently of a superior order, there prevailed the most anxious feeling in her favour. Their manifestations of attachment assumed rather the character of tender sympathy than of animated applause. There was, however, a box a little to the left of the Eclipse, which made some attempts to hiss her Majesty, and a few old ladies appeared the most conspicuous on the occasion, but their shrill shrieks were quickly drowned in cries of " Bravo, Queen Caroline," " God bless the Queen," & c We shall now proceed with a detail of THE CORONATION OF GEORGE THE FOURTH. The ceremony of the Coronation of George IV. commenced as was most suitable with the military occupation of London. About midnight, on Wednesday, the troops which had been collected in the metropolis and its neighbourhood, were putin motion; and before one o'clock on Thursday morning, a body of infantry, three or four thousand strong, had assembled in St. James's Park. This body was immediately filed off, in detachments, to secure the entrances into the town, and to take up commanding positions in the principal streets. Strong guards were placed at Hyde Park- corner, Storey's- gate, the foot of Wes'. minstcr- bridge, & c,; while pickets of still greater force were sent out in several directions, particularly to Portman- street Barracks, Knightsbridge- barracks, and the King's- mews. Fifteen hundred men occupied the platform in Palace- yard, and two companies of Grenadiers were posted in Westminster- abbey. In addition to these guards and detachments, which were all composed of infantry, two thousand cavalry were stationed in several quarters of the town, and kept up a regular chain of communication between the different posts. In addition to the Guards and detachments of the regular troops, the Light Horse Volunteers, the Surrey, the Berks, and Bucks Yeomanry, with the Honorable Artillery Company, were on duty, occupying the passes into the Metropolis, or patrolling the principal streets. All tbe military arrangements were completed before two o'clock in the morning. The dawn of day saw the metropolis of England in military occupation ; and had a stranger, not possessed of any previous knowledge of the events which have been passing, approached at that moment, he might have mistaken London for a conquered city, in which the governing powers were at war with the people.* Before, however, we proceed to state the proceedings in the various parts of the City we shall give an account of what passed in the Hall, which constituted the opening of the Ceremonial itself. T H E H A L L. The preparations within this noble building have been already made sufficiently known to the public. A triumphal arch on the inside of the north door; a double row of galleries on both sides; a platform elevated on three flights of steps, on which is placed the Royal Seat or Throne, with a large table in front for the exhibition of the regalia;— this may be taken as a brief description of the arrangements.— We were admitted into the Hall, through the favor ' which Lord Gwydyr had extended to those whose duty it is to give an account of the proceedings for the public Papers, by the Cotton- garden stairs and the House of Lords. We entered the Hall at twenty minutes past five o'clock, and a crowd of ladies admitted by Peers' orders, and Peeresses, were struggling for admittance. The avenues about the House of Lords were then crowded with attendants, and Cotton- garden which was lately occupied by persons who. were cooking up dishes of evidence, was filled with cooks, who were, even at that early hour, hard at work in preparing more wholesome diet for the Peers. The first thing we observed on having entered the Hall, was the canopy which was to be borne over the King by the Barons of the Cinque Ports. The canopy was yellow;— of silk and gold embroidery, with curtains of muslin; and eight bearers having fitted the poles by which the canopy was supported, and which were of steel ( apparently), with silver knobs, fixed, bore it up and down the Hall, to practise the mode of carrying it in procession. It was then deposited, ' * At three o'clock the platform leading from Westminster- hall to the Abbey, was thrown open to public view. The removal of the boards disclosed the interior, like the celebrated Trojan horse, filled with soldiers. They were lying down with arms at their sides, except a few who were on the alert to prevent the intrusion of the people. The canvass covering was then furled up close to the top ridge, thus affording a view of the procession to the spectators in the most elevated places. The ledge along the outside of the platform was occupied by a detachment of the grenadier guards. At . this early hour carriages made their approach from several parts of the town, with persons entitled to seats to see the solemn ceremony, and with others who had paid for seats outside to sec the procession. We were not much surprised to see that persons who had been at such expense in fitting up places for the accommodation of the public, were not likelv to be remunerated for their trouble, as seats which were expected to bring three guineas, were offered on Thursday morning at 10s. Very good seats were obtained at so low as 7s. The working classes of the public did not appear to take that interest in the Coronation which was expected. The streets ar> d neighbourhood of Westminster were not treat!} crowded. according to the programme, at the upper end of the si< le table of the Ilall, to the left of the Throne. The canopy was nothing very brilliant; it was, in fact, rather a clumsy affair, and did not seem very well calculated to add to the effect of the Procession. But even at this early hour, the' appearance of the Hall, lined by galleries, and studded' with? groupes of Gentlemen Pensioners, and various other attendants, in their fantastic and antique costumes, with the Officers of the Guards, and others, in military uniform, and above all, the elegantly- dressed women, who began to fill the galleries, was altogether superb. r The sides of the upper end of the Hall, including the boxes for the Foreign Ministers and Royal Family, were hung with scarlet cloth, edged with gold. The Throne was splendid, with gold and crimson; the canopy over the Throne was of crimson and gold, with the Royal Arms, in embroidery. The large square table before the Throne, intended for the display of the regalia, was of purple, having a rim of gold, and an interior square moulding of the same description, about two feet from the edge. The platform on which the Throne was placed, and the three steps immediately descending from it, were covered with carpeting ; the two other descending flights of steps, and the double chairs, placed by the side of the tables for the Peers ( with the names of their future occupiers), and the coverings of the railing in front of the seats, were of morone cloth. From the bottom of the steps, descending from the Throne, to the north gate, the middle . of the floor of the Hall, was covered with blue cloth, in the same manner as the platform without. The rest of the floor and the seats were matted. The side tables were covered with green cloth; and as on each side tho galleries reached nearly to the top of the windows in the wall, only the upper arches of those windows, and the noble roof of the old fabric appeared, except at each end, the upper one especially, where the grave visages of the Saxon Kings, newly decorated, made their appearance. The light, which was only admitted from the roof- windows, and from those in each end, though sober, was, on the whole, good. At half- past six the galleries at the lower end of the ball were nearly full. Those on the left were chiefly filled by females. At this lime a great noise of shouting was heard without, and some alarm was for a time excited in the Hall. The Yeomen of the Guard, who were without the Hall, were ordered to come in, and the doors of the Hall were closed.— It was understood that at this time her Majesty had made her appearance, and that a file of soldiers with fixed bayonets had been drawn across the door on the outside. Many reports of what had taken place prevailed in the Hall, and Lord Gwydyr was sent for, and with his wand of officc, accompanied by his Secretary, proceeded to the door,' which was soon after opened. The soldiers appeared to be drawn up very closely across tbe door- way, and there seemed to be a complete interruption to tho entrance of the persons having tickets. Shortly after, however, this interruption was put an end to. The Duchesses of Gloucester and Clarence had now taken their seats in the box for the Royal family. The attendants on the Earl Marshal had began to assemble in the Hall, and attracted some notice by their dark dresses, with white sashes, stockings, shoes with large rosettes, and Queen Elizabeth ruffs, with gilt staves tipped wilh black. At a quarter after seven o'clock an attendant, habited in the dress of Henri Quartre, laid on the table, near the canopy, eight maces, to be borne in the course of the Procession. The herb- women soon after entered the Halll from the south- end. Miss Fellows, the principal herb- woman, was led in by Mr. Fellows; and the six young ladies her assistants, followed two and two. They were afterwards seated at the north entrance of the Hall. They were elegantly dressed in white, tastefully decorated with flowers.— Miss Fellows wore, in addition to the same dress, a scarlet mantle. At e: ght o'clock three large baskets were brought into the Hall, filled with flowers, for them to bear. Of a very different description from these were some other persons who were observed in various parts of the Hall, and who formed no part of the programme. These were welhknown prize- fighters, who were stationed from the idea of a necessity of keeping peace among the Honourable and Noble throng. We observed Mr. Thomas Cribb, the Champion, ( not the Coronation Champion;) Mr. John Randall, or the Phenomenon; Mr. William Richmond, or the Lilly- white. However, there seemed nothing to call for their interference, and nothing in their conduct to call for the reprehension of others. The canopy was now removed from the side table where it had been placed, and was brought into the middle of the Hall. The Barons of the Cinque Ports were then marshalled, two to each poll; thiy then bore the. canopy down the Hall by w- ay of practice, according to a word of command.— Some laughter was at first excited by the irregular manner in which the bearers moved. Their dresses were, however, extremely splendid— large cloaks of garter- blue satin, with slashed arms oi scarlet, and stockings of dead red. Many Peers had been occasionally in the Hall at a very early hour in the morning, and before eight o'clock they had ali arrived at the buildings near the House of Lord9, and took their coronets and robes. The Archbishops and Bishops assembled abcu! tlie same time, and vested themselves hi THE NEWS. .. - it their rochets, in the House of Lords and chambers adjacent. The Judges, and others of the long robe, together with the Gentlemen of tha Privy Chamber, Esquires of the Body Sergeants at Law, Masters in Chancery, Aldermen of London, Chaplains having dignities, and six Clerks in Chancery, being all in their proper habits, assembled at the places of which notice had been given, where the Officers of Arms arranged them according to their respective classes, four in a rank, placing the youngest on the left, and then conducted them into the Hall. The King's Sergeants were in red gowns. The Masters in Chancery ( nine of whom attended) were in the dress in which they attend the House of Lords, The Barons of the Cinque Ports now took another turn, for practice, in the Hall, which, as it began with more formality, was attended with more laughter than the first. About this time also, the four swords were brought in, and deposited on the end of the left- hand table, with the spurs, and a cushion for the Crown. The Knights of the Bath now be^ gan to assemble, and with the others who were to take part in the procession, ranged themselves at the end of the Hall. The dresses of tbe Knights of the Bath were extremely splendid, bat somewhat garish and gaudy. The Knights had all dose dresses of white satin, packered in a variety of ways. The Grand Crosses wore flowing robes of pinkish red satin, lined with white; the Commanders close mantles. The Judges and the Privy Councillors, not being Peers, next entered, the latter in splendid dresses of blue velvet and gold. Among- them we observed the Earl of Yarmouth, Lord Binning, Mr. Canning, Mr. Bathurst, Mr. Huskisson, Sir G. Hill, Mr. Robinson, Mr. Beckett, Lord G. Beresford, and Mr. Wallace. The Barons then entered. Lords Stowell and Maryborough ( late Sir W. Scott and W. W. Pole,) being among the first. There were bpt- 19 ( if we rightly counted them) present. Next came the Bishops— 15 attended ; ' the Viscounts, 19 in number. The Earls were more numerous— we should think TO or SO ; but the Hall now became so crowded, that there was a difficulty in counting them accurately. The Marquisses and Dukes, and lastly the great Officers of State, Archbishops, and the M, embers of the Royal Family entered. The Marquis of Londonderry soon after entered, iu the full robes of the Order of the Garter, as lie is painted by. Sir T. Lawrence. Prince Leopold of Saxe Cobotirg was also in the same costume. The Princes of the Blood, and some of the Dukes placed themselves on the right of the platform about the throne. The Marquis and some of tiie Earls on the left side, formed a line with those who had descended to the floor of the Hall. The show of ermine and velvet on the descent of the platform, was of the most magnificent description. A Herald then went through the line of Peers, marshalling each according to the order of their creation— the junior first. They were a second time called over, mid ranged in a double file on each side of the middle space of the Hall by Mr. Mash. Before the King entered tbe Peers were all ranged on each side of the Hall, none being left on the platform but the great Officers of State and the Royal family. Precisely at ten o'clock the King entered the Hall from the door behind the Throne, habited in rubes of enormous size and richness, wearing a black hat with a monstrous plume of ostrich feathers, out of the midst of which rose a black heron's plume. 11 is Majesty had on the evening- previous quitted Carlton House by tha back icay, and gone to the House of the Speaker of the House of Commons, where he slept, and was guarded through the night by Lord Gwydyr, the Deputy Lord Great Chamberlain, and the Marquis of Hertford, the Lord Chamberlain of the Household. His Majesty slept on a sofa bed, of a peculiarly convenient description, which was brought from Carlton House. When the King awoke in the morning, the Deputy ' Lord Great Chamberlain carried to his Majesty the shirt and apparel which he was to wear during the first part of the dav; and his Lordship, with the assistance of the Marquis of Hertford, Lord Chamberlain, also assisted in dressing his Majesty. On bis Majesty's entrance into the Hall he seated himself in the chair of state. The Master of the Jewel House brought up the four swords to be used in the ceremony— namely, the sword of State, Curtana, and two others, and delivered thetn to the Duke of Wellington as High Constable; the Great Chamberlain, Lord Gwydvr, then took them and laid them before the King. In the same manner were delivered the golden spurs. At half- past eight, the Dean and Prebendaries of Westminster having assembled in their church, and being vested in surplices and rich copes, set forth with the insignia of Royalty, which were anciently kept in the A bbey, and brought them to the Hall in a procession, which had been regulated by a printed programme:— The regalia being thus delivered and placed on the table before the King, the Prebendaries and Dean returned to the middle of the Hall. His Majesty having commanded Deputy Garter to summon the Noblemen and Bishops who were to bear the regalia, the Deputy Lord Great Chamberlain then took up tbe several Swords, JJceptres, the Orb, and Crow n, and placed them in the hands of those by whom they were to be carried. First, St. Edward's Staff, by the Marquis of Salisbury. Second, the Spars, by the Lord Calthorpe, as Deputy to the Baroness Grey de Ruthyn. Third, the Sceptre with the Cross, by the Marquis of W ejleslev. Fourth, the pointed Sword of Temporal Justice, br tin- Earl of Galloway. Fifth, the pointed Sword of Spiritual Justice, by the Duke of Northumberland. Sixth, Curtana, or Sword of Mercy, by tho Duke of Newcastle. Seventh, the Sword of State, bv the Duke of Dorset. Eighth, the Sceptre with the Dove, by the Duke of Rutland. Ninth, the Orb, bv tbe Duke of Devonshire. Tenth, St. Edward's Crown, by the Marquis of Anglcsea, as Lord High Steward. Eleventh, the Patina, by the Bishop of Gloucester. Twelfth, the Chalice, by the Bishop of Chester. Thirteenth, the Bible, by the Bishop of Ely. Tbe two Bishops who were to support his Majesty were then summoned bv Deputy Garter, and ascending the steps, plaeed themselves on each side of the King. The King then rose and set forth. It would appear that his Majesty had studied tbe ceremonies with much more diligence than his attendants, for he here corrected a terrible mistake into which the Marquis of Salisbury fell, in being out of his place. Deputy Garter was immediately called and the Marquis was. put in his right These immediately preceded THE KING, f gj Supporter: in the royal robes, wear- Supporter: ; 3 ; a Lord Durham. 5. a a evidently appeared to be a matter of consequence to him that no error in form should for an instant find a place in the ceremonial of his Coronation. Strange that in this anxiety l'or regularity and precedent lie should have forgotten bow completely his Queen was out of her place. In descending tbe steps of the platform, his Majesty seemed very feeble, and requested the aid and support of an officer who was near him.* Instead of standing under the canopy, his Majesty, perhaps afraid of the awkwardness of the Barons, preceded it. When his Majesty had got a little way down the Hall, he turned to his train- bearers ( the Earls of Surrey and Uxbridge, Marquis Douro, & c.) and requested them to bear his train farther from him, apparently with a view fo relieve himself from the weight. As lie went down the Hall, he conversed with much apparent cheerfulness with tbe Archbishop of Canterbury, who was on his right hand. It was remarkable that ths galleries in the Hall u- cre not full; some of them, we should sav, not much more than half full. The procession then commenced, the King's herb woman accompanied withhet- six maids went first— then followed trumpets, kettle drums, & c.

' At 35 minutes before ten, the clangour of the trumpets gave notice that tiie procession was moving from Westminster- hall ; and very soon aftnrwards, Miss Fellowes, the King's herb woman, attended bv her si::, maids, were seen scattering flowers on the blue cloth with which tbe centre of the platform was carpeted. Miss Feliowes and her maids appeared to have studied their parts very attentively. Ophelia herself could hot have dealt ciit the garden's sweets with finer theatrical effect tjian the modern Flora displayed. She was dressed in a robe of white satin, aud a. scarlet mantle hung gracefully from her shoulders. Her attendants were arrayed in " virgin white," their hair beingsirnply but tastefully ornamented with flowers. As the procession moved forward, the ' crowd were dazzled with its splendour. As is customary on such occasions, popular feeling was manifested, as different individuals who have appeared on the political arena passed along the platform. Alderman Wood received strong marks of affection and good- will, but they were not unmixed with symptoms or disapprobation. One or two voices exclaimed " No Wood!" to which an Hibernian labourer responded with laughable effeet, " No Wood! If there was no wood what would you do for scaffolding?" . Mr. Sheriff Waithm. an and Mr'Slieriff Williams were noticed very favourably. The Marquis of Londonderry was received with alternate cheers and hisses. His lordship acted on the old adage, " that those who win may laugh " and, turning round to his auditors, treated them with that convulsion of features which naturalists tell us distinguishes man from the brule creation. Lord Hill, by whom the. standard of England was borne, received the most enthusiastic applause,' which he answered by repeated obeisance. The Duke of Sussex and Prince Leopold of Saxe. Cobcu. rg, the latter of whom carried himself with peculiar dignity, were greeted in the most affectionate manner. The Duke of Clarence did not escape observation; and, whether it was in consequence of bis conduct during the late investigation in the House of Lords, or his recent application to parliament' for money, we know not, but that, observation was not of the most friendly character. And now, in the distance his Majesty was seen approaching. Hi& Majesty looked extremely pale, and did not appear to possess " that alacrity and cheer of mind" which he is said usually to display. On his return, however from the Abbey, he seemed to have recovered his spirits, and appeared to be engaged in cheerful conversation with the noblemen by whom he was attended. His Majesty was received, both in his progress to, and oil his return from, the Abbey, with marks of respect, although as he proceeded towards the Hall, occasional cries of " The Queen I" were heard. WESTMINSTER ABBEY. Aboflt four in tbe morning the gates of the Abbev were thrown open. A large concourse of persons had collected themselves in the area ( formerly the churchyard) between the north door of the building and the Guildhall of Westminster; but a comparatively small proportion only were provided with tickets of r. dnussion. About two hundred individuals entered the Abbey, cheered by a merry peal from the steeple of St. Margaret's, and a little annoyed by the occasional jeers of the less fortunate spectators. Costume varied widely. One gentleman appeared in a full court suit; and his next neighbour iu great coat and trowsers. Military gear was a good deal affected, particularly by those w ho had no title to wear it; and naval uniforms were sprinkled here and there. Ti e front row of ( he vaulted gallery was rapidly occupied ( principally by handsome and welldressed females), but not the slightest confusion occurred. Each ticket contained the number of the particular box in which the holder was destined to sit; and all the boxes were provided with locks, to guard against tbe entrance of unauthorized visitors. Agents attended from some of the most considerable confectioners in town; tsbles were set out under proper superintendence; and iocs, fruit, wine, Sandwiches, and " such savoury messes," were to be obtained, of good quality, and upon reasonable terms. From 5 o'clock until " 8, the. numbers in the lower parts of the Abbey gradually increased, and the pages and ushers of the rod, dashing about in their gay uniforms, gave motion and sprightliness to the At half- past eight, a flourish of trumpets ,, „ -.... . ... , , » the ceremony :—•• When the Ilmg quitted the Thron e to ;: s, cene., At , h a_ t - p' ast euj> r nt,' a ffounsn oi trumpets was take his place in the procession, his Majesty advanced alone i , e a i a ' a n a T i i ' ' P R O v i t , S I ON with a firm step, until lie reached the first flight of descending steps from the platform. The King there paused for an. instant, and looked around as if waiting assistance; a gentleman in a scarlet uniform advanced, and tendered it, when' W I T H TUE HEGALII. inarched out. of the Abbey. From half- past 8 to 10 ( spite of the novelty of the ceremony, and the piquant circurhstance of having been compelled to get up at two o'clock in the morning to his Majesty, with his right hand leaning upon the shoulder behold it) something like ennui began to shew itself in of this gentleman, descended the steps, and when he came upon the area of the Hall his Majesty dismissed the gendeman who had assisted him, and whose name we were unable to learn. and said in a tone distinctly audible—" I thank you. Sir." The King then advanced beneath the canopy of the Barons of tbe Cinque Ports, and passed beyond it, with his long train of crimson velvet richly embroidered with gold.— The bearers of the canopy made no advance to uphold it over the King as he went forth from the Hall. His Majesty walked several yards before, it, and stopped in front of the steps leading to the Throne, while his pages unfolded and displayed his train. The King, while the Pages were so engaged, said twice ia an audible tone, '•' Hold it wider." the demeanour of the expectant fair ones : soon after 10, however, loud and continued music in the distance gave a fillip to hall- slumbering curiosity, and at ten minutes before eleven ( looking down the Abbey as from the east, behind the organ) Miss Feliowes, with lier six tributary herb- women, heading the grand procession," appeared at the western gate. The cavalcade halted for a few moments at that point, apparently to give time for the rear to come up, and lively music ( fifes and drums, and flourishes cf trumpets alternately) filled up the interim.

" I I E T E M LONDON: SUNDAY, JULY 22. THE CORONATION. Full particulars of this gaudy pageant will be found ) h the different columns of our present number. It is a singular circumstance, that the Coronation of the " first Gentleman in Europe" should have been ushered in by tho grossest of insults, offered under his presumed sanction, to a woman— his own wife, and the second person in point, of rank in his realm. But so it was : and in future ages, whenever the Coronation of GEOROE THE FOURTH shall be mentioned, whether in the page of history or by oral tradition, the tale will ever be accompanied by the disgraceful fact, that the ceremony was prefaced by a deed towards a woman and a wife, never exceeded in brutal insolence in the most barbarous of - ages, or by the most uncivilized of nations. In our first page we give a detail of the QUEEN'S proceedings on Thursday last. When men, or rather brutes 5n the shape of men, can be found capable of insulting a Woman, merely because fate has deprived her of her child ( for how changed would be the tone of these wretches were the Princess CHARLOTTE now living), it makes us ashamed of bur species, and sick at heart at the • depravity of human nature. With respect. to the Coronation itself, we shall only say, if the million , of money which it cost, had been J'ound hoarded in the late KING'S coffers, the people might have felt grateful to the present K I N G for thus lavishly throwing it amongst them: but as every farthing of the expense of this raree- show, from the . KING'S crown to a sixpenny squib, will be defrayed out of the hard earnings of a heavily taxed people,- the latter can feel no gratitude, for they have received no favor. In our next page we publish the Correspondence between the QUEEN, the Archbishop of CANTERBURY, . and Lord STIMIOUTH, which has taken place since the Coronation. It forms a very suitable denouement to that one- eved ceremony. The public announcement of her MAJESTY'S determination to visit Edinburgh this summer, may perhaps account for the KING'S resolution . not to proceed to Ireland by land. letters from Odessa, of the ' 23d of June, say, that > rv vessels which have arrived there in four days from Constantinople, news had been received that the Turkish squadron, consisting of one ship of the line, six frigates, and six brigs, has sailed from the Dardanelles, Imd had an engagement near the island Myteline, with the Greeks, which proved unfavorable to the Turks, their squadron was defeated; the ship of the line of 74 guns, with one frigate, fell into the hands of the Greeks, '/' he other Turkish ships of war, favored bv a strong wind, readied the Dardanelles, hut much damaged. The Greeks lost three vessels, which were quite disabled in - the action. The Emperor Alexander has given orders fo infer the body of the Greek Patriarch, who was murdered at Constantinople, with the greatest pomp and respect. The Court of Vienna begins to exhibit signs of alarm at the threatening conduct of Russia towards the Porte. Couriers have been despatched to all the Generals cominanding on the frontiers, who arc supposed to be the bearers of orders to lie acted upon in ( he event of the Russian army entering the Ottoman territory. A letter from Vienna, dated the 5th inst., says, that the last accounts from Constantinople leave little hope of conciliation between tbe Russians and Turks. i The Queen,- after her return- on Thursday to Cambridge- house, was visited by many friends. Her Majesty never displayed'more equanimity, and did not appear to have suffered from tho bustle and fatigue of the morning.. We are informed on undoubted authority, that Colonel M'Kinnon did not at all interfere to stop the admission of her Majesty into Westminster- hall, nor was any military { officer employed in that odious task. It was left to the police- officers and door- keepers to offer this disgusting- indignity to the (,} ueen of England. The King performed one grand feat on hisCoronation day. His Majesty knighted Mr. ISulmer, the. floorcloth manufacturer, in the Strand, who is now, to his great amazement, Sir Fenwick Bulmer. It seems the Marquis of Hertford has resigned his office of Lord Chamberlain. Wc. fancy the Noble Lord was not perfect enough in his lesson the other day. We are informed bv a respectable Correspondent from Aylesbury, that the Ministerialists there, though backed by all the power and influence of a Noble Marquis, could neither raise a dinner nor an illumination on the Coronation day. His Lordship did, we learn, treat the poor prisoners in the county gaol with a dinner; but even they insisted on drinking the Queen's health, in defiance of the Sheriff and Gaol- keeper. Ministers never performed a kinder action towards the Queen than in turning her away from witnessing her Husband's Coronation. The booth takers at the late Coronation are rafher unjustly censured for the sums they asked for their seats, & c., but it should be recollected they regulated their prices by those of the Coronation of George 111.: at that ceremonial the front seats in the gallery of Westminster- abbey were let at ten guineas each; and those in commodious houses along the line of the procession, at no less prices. The prices in the ordinary houses were hum five guineas to one guinea; so that one little house in Coronation- row, after the scaffolding was paid for. cleared TOOL, and some large houses upwards of 10001. In the Coronation Theatres, as they were called, being a sort of large booths, capable ot'eontaining from twelve to fifteen hundred seats, the prices were beyond all precedent. The rent of the ground on which the scaffolding was erected was proportionably extravagant. That in the Broad Sanctuary let at three guineas and a half per foot, and that within the rails enclosing the Abbey, at five guineas. The error committed by the booth speculators of the present day, and under which they are now suffering, was in supposing that the Coronation of George IV. would be as popular a ceremony as was that of his Royal Father. We are not sorry to learn that the tables are turned on the Bridge- street Gang,. and the prosecutors arc now become the prosecuted. On Friday, the London Grand Jury found a true bill at the Old Bailey, against Murray, Scwcll ( Sir John), Shurp, and Longueville Clark. The last is, we understand, a person who has been brought forward to supply the place of Orton.— The rest are to a certain degree known to the publie'by the parts which they have acted in the proceedings of this scandalous combination. It is rather remarkable, that a Society professing to have for its object the enforcement of the laws, should itself have been indicted, and have had a true bill found against it, for a breach of the laws, before it has brought any one offender to trial. So much for the utility of this league, the members of which " have thus dug a pit, and fallen into the midst of it themselves." Neither Doctor Stop of The Mock Times, nor the R- nsa Matilda Editor of The Morning I'ost, Say a syllable on this painful subject, in their papers of yesterday. Mr. Martineau, a most respectable Solicitor, is the professional agent employed against these fellows. The Bill, we learn, charges them with oppression and extortion. Mr. Longueville Clark, the man implicated with the Bridge- street Gang, in the bill found against that precious collection of ultras, is, we understand, the same person who made himself very conspicuous in his opposition to the Queen at, a meeting held some time ago at the Green Man, Blackheath. We also learnhis name willbe found in the Red Book, with a salary of 5001. ayear, as assistant to his father, who holds an official situation in the Naval Asylum. We hardly need add that this place is a complete sinecure. It is of such men that this notorious gang, is formed. Jones, Lf, v, Iloebotham, Hardy, and Macarthy, the soldiers who were to have been tried on Friday, for the murder of Mr. Cogle, in the riot at Westminster, on the ISth'of June, have put their trial off until Tuesday. A respectable Evening Paper ( The Traveller) relates the following as facts, which came under the personal observation of the writer, on the Coronation day:— " My neighbour, Mr. , who is not a Parliamentary Reformer, and was an active supporter of Sir Murray Maxwell, and is a member of the Select Vestry, told me as follows:— " That he went down to Westminster at half- past nine on Thursday morning, and offered the door- keeper at the gallery at the end of George- street, in the garden, seven shillings for admission to a six guinea seat, and was refused, but in less than half an hour was, with many others, admitted for tis. Sd., or three for a sovereign. " That when the procession came opposite the end of King- street, which is a tolerably open space, the people groaned and hissed, aud called " Queen, Queen," but one single voice called—" King,"— that the King passed on, without giving the people a glance; but the Duke of York turned himself partly round, and stared at them, then looked at the comparatively emptygalleries, and seemed greatly displeased. That long before the procession arrived, people were admitted for 2s. each. " That he calculated the booth opposite—- i. e. in the other garden, would hare held 7000 persons, but that if did not contain 1000.'" The Ministerial papers are endeavouring to magnify some little window- breaking on Thursday morning last into a dreadful riot. The affair in point of fact was more the result of accident than design. When the Queen left the Abbey after her unsuccessful attempt to enter, she was attended to her house in South A ml leystreet by an immense crowd of people, ail eager to evince their detestation of the insult her Majesty had received. On the return of these persons, their attention was attracted by the preparations making. to celebrate, by if- Iuminations, what they very justly considered to he a scandalous affront on an injured, unprotected lady. Influenced by these feelings, they broke some windows in Portman and Berkeley- squares, in Piccadilly, and in Jermyn- street. They also gave Lord Londonderry a passing salute. The whole was however over iri half au hour, although in many places they encountered no opposition. We make the following extract from - a private letter from Paris, of the date of the 14th. It communicates some interesting particulars of the manner in which the death of Napoleon was received by the Bourbons :— " Louis had that very day the news arrived removed to St. Cloud for the season : the illuminations were glittering in the approaches to the palace, and were reflected bv the silent and gliding waters of the Seine, when i'a*- quir arrived. If was amidst all the affected gaiety of the Advent— amidst the solemn shade of the majestic, woods of St. Cloud, and in the apartments still rich in the magnificent proofs of his genius and his taste, that the once servile Prefect of Police of Napoleon, now raised to the dignity of Minister of Foreign Affairs, announced to his master, who is a mass of disease and corruption, the death of the once might y, active, healthy Napoleon. What the effect was upon the Royal grouje, France is not informed. The next evening I saw Monsieur, his silly son, and Madame, simpering and chattering as usual, and coaxing some coarse looking Colonel of gens d'armes. Some say they are not surprised; that at least, certain individuals, and certain parties in certain Cabinets, know the history of the hereditary cancer. Others declare that the children of St. Louis are more horrified than ever; that they see in every old soldier an avenging foe ; and that although the corpse of the father is at St. Helena, the residence of the son is a great deal too near for them. At Saffron Walden an ox was given, by subscription of the loyal inhabitants, to the public ; but while in the process of roasting news arrived that the Queen was to be prohibited from participating in the ceremony of the day : this operated on the feelings of a large party devoted to the interest of this magnanimous but insulted Princess like an electrical shock. The'ox that had been devoted to fill the longing stomachs of the loyal mob met a very different fate. In a moment the carcass was attacked, and literally torn by piece- meal off the spit, and scattered in every direction. We are happy to say that the party attached to her Majesty, satisfied with their triumph over the ox, and enjoying the disappointment of their loyal neighbours, dispersed without any other acts of violence. A dinner in honor of the Coronation was given to the poor of Croydon, on Duppas- hill, for which a large subscription had been collected. So great anxiety was shewn to render the arrangements complete, that the gentlemen by whom it was planned were on the hill by 4 o'clock in the morning. The company, consisting of about 1,000 persons, sat down by 2 o'clock, in appearance very happy, and plentifully supplied with viands, but suddenly the scene changed to one of the utmost confusion. A Rev. Gentleman present having proposed the health of his Majesty, was answered by a call from a great majority of those present for that of the Queen. This led to a warm contest, and taking the common course from words to blows, the clergyman and hie supporters were ejected, and driven to their homes, which, however, they were not suffered to enter till they said " God bless the Queen." The bell rang at 12 o'clock, but not a full peal, as the principal ringers refused, and not a house was illuminated in the fevening, although two or three had made preparations. When the Queen was acquitted, every cottage was lighted up. A curious reason is assigned in a Ministerial evening paper, for the King's refusal to permit the Queen to be crowned with him— namely, that lie litis made a vow, never, knowingly, to come under the same roof with her. Rash vows are better broken than kept. He might vow not to breathe the same clime with her— or be under the same canopy of heaven with her— but no one could maintain that such vows should be binding on a Christian King. Of the horsemen who displayed their feats before his Majesty in Westminster- Hall on Thursday last, the Marquis of Angleseu decidedly bore the bell. The Duke of Wellington, who was much indebted to ti.* assistance of his pedestrian attendants, seemed a little jealous of his superior address, and one time, when the procession was preparing to retire, his Grace sharply desired several persons to stand out of the way, its if he were determined " to witch the world with noble horsemanship."' ' Fhe Deputy Earl Marshal's horse seemed the most refractory. He reared, curvetted, and wlieeled without mercy. Letters from Madrid of the 5th instant state that T- errinos, the King's treasurer, was placed under- arrest on the preceding. day. On searching his papers, .. some documents were found, which jjroved him to have. been in connexion with Merino, with Abuclu, and with Zaldivar, rebellious Ultras. It is known that Napoleon, Bonaparte has, by his will, given to Lady Holland the snuff- box which lie for-, merly received from the Pope.. In. this box there is a note in the hand- writing of Napoleon, containing the following words:—" Testimony of remembrance arid gratitude to Ladv Holland." Lady Holland is now at Paris.— Paris Paper, THE NEWS. .. - it THE QUEEN. • — OFFICIAL CORRESPONDENCE. LETTER TO T H E ARCHBISHOP OP CANTERBURY.

" The Queen requests that his Majesty would be pleased to give an early answer to the demand which the Queen has made to the Archbishop of Canterbury, to be crowned the following week, not wishing to increase any new expense upon the nation. The Queen must trust, that after the public insult her Majesty has received this morning, the King will grant her just right to be crowned as next Monday; and that his Majesty will command the Archbishop of Canterbury to fulfil the Queen's particular desire to confer upon her that sacred and august ceremony. The Queen also communicates to his Majesty, that during the King's abseace in Ireland her Majesty intends vititing Edinburgh." [ The above was sant to Lord Sidmouth.] LOUD SIDMOUTH'S ANSWER. " July 20, 1821. " MADAM— I have to acknowledge the receipt of a letter from your Majesty, enclosing one addressed to his Majesty the King, which I have had the honor of laying before his Majesty; and I am commanded to acquaint your Majesty, that the Privy Council to which your Majesty's petition was referred at your request, having decided, after solemn argument, that the Queens- Consort of this realm are not entitled as of right to be crowned at any time, the King does not think proper to give any orders for the coronation of your Majesty. " I have the honor to lie, " With the highest respect, Madam, " Your Majesty's most obedient humble servant, ( Signed) « SIDMOUTH." Tbe King, on Thursday last, wore his hair, or rather his witr, in thick falling curls over his forehead, and it fell behind his head in a similar shape. It is said his Majesty used between twenty and thirty pocket- handkerchiefs in the Abbey on Thursday last.— lie was repeatedly observed to give a handkerchief to the Archbishop of Canterbury, who put them in the frown of his hat. One hundred and fifty cooks were employed in preparing the Coronation dinner on Thursday last. On Tuesday no less a number than 325 joints of venison, " beef, mutton, fowl, & c., were roasted in the course of the dav. Cotton- garden was the larder where the dishes were placed, as they were finished, under awnings. No class of persons has suffered so much from the want of popularity at the late Coronation as the booth tal: ers and the sutf/ ers who supplied them with liquors and provisions. None of the booths were above half filled, and some had hardly a person in. them. It is said that they would have exhibited a far more, scanty disjlav of tenants than they did, had not Government, finding the Coronation likely to have but few spectators, kindly taken a number of tickets off the hands of the boot!) owners, and distributed them among their dependants.— One wine- merchant in the city, we have heard, sent ten pipes of port wine to one of the largest . of the booths. One pipe was staved in the carriage, and about, • a couple of gallons- was drawn and sold from one of the others. He will know better next time how far it is safe to speculate on an unpopular Coronation., The Crown which was . exhibited in brilliant lamps at the front of Somerset- house on Thursday night, was destroyed by the board on w hich the lamps were hung taking fire about twe've o'clock. Considerable alarm prevailed for sometime* . Two or three fire- engines arrived with the utmost promptitude on the spot. No'further mischief occurred. No individual in the Royal Procession on Thursday last, received so great a portion of popular indignation as the Recorder of Lopdon, Sir John Sylvester. Tins worthy and tender- hearted Judge was most violently hissed, by the tenants of the booths and the populace, both in going to and returning from the Abbey. One accident had nearly happened on Thursday last, which might have impeded the ccremony for a considerable time. As St. JBd ward's Crown was borne up to the Altar by the Marquis of Anglesea, it was very near, falling to the ground. , For some time, indeed, it was apprehended that,-, some, injury had been . done to that rplendid - piece of workmanship, but it afterwards pereeifed that no damage had taken place. CORONATION BLARNEY!! ! ' Well may we be proud of a Monarch who combines Majesty with grace— who is at once the most dignified and the most amiable man in his dominions*— who has no enemy but the factious— no foe but those who are alien and hostile to that Constitution which has made us the greatest, the happiest, and the freest people in the world."—( Courier of Friday.) ' It is impossible to reflect on the manner in which his Majesty's Coronation has been celebrated, without feelings © f triumph and exultation. Those who objected to the measure at this particular period, as involving an expense which they did not consider to be strictly necessary— those who affected to regard it as a splendid pageant unsuited to the sober sense of the nineteenth century— and even those whom it filled with alarm, on account of the expressed intention of the Radicals to turn it into an opportunity for breaking the public peace, — all now unite in extolling the wisdom and firmness which caused it to take place, and in congratulation of its result. Never, indeed, was expense better applied, or splendor more usefully displayed; leaving out of our consideration the certainty of reimbursement to the Revenue from the immense consumption of taxable articles on the occasion."— ( Morning Post.) " Ilis Majesty appeared much younger than he really is. His face very little resembles the representation in the print shops. There is still a strong resemblance between his countenance and the portrait of him in the Freemasons' Tavern, which was taken many years ago. The form of the features is extremely handsome, and the general expression as pleasing as an uninterrupted gratification of all well- regulated wishes can bestow."—( lb.) " We are gratified in learning that his Majesty is in excellent health after the fatigue he underwent on Thursday, the effects of which Were infinitely more than counteracted by the cheerings which every where greeted the appearance of George the Fourth.*'—( Ministerial Paper.) Such is the wretched stuff inserted in the Treasury Newspapers, under tbe idea that it will meet the eye and please the taste of Royalty!!! * We wonder The Courier did not add to " the most amiable man in his dominions"— the very best husband in his dominions. CORONATION BOOTHS, or GALLERIES. That we may not be thought in any shape to detract from the popularity of the Coronation of George the Fourth, we copy from a Ministerial Paper of yesterday morning ( The Herald) the following accou.:! of the crowds which filled the galleries :— " For the last month Westminster was a scene of bustle and confusion, on account of the magnificent preparations within and without, for the grand and long expected spectacle. Those who were speculating oil unlimited profits, by the construction of galleries for the accommodation of the. public, spared no expense in making the seats as commodious as possible. In the course of the morning we endeavoured to remove ennui, and to beguile time of its wearisome length, by strolling among those curious edifices, which had been raised with a rapidity scarcely equalled in Oriental fable. It may not he uninteresting to such of our readers as had " not seen, or if seen, had their minds too much engaged with the splendor of the grand ceremony, to examine or inspect such inferior or secondary object?, to- give them a few of the observations which occurred to us in our perambulations. We will lead the reader to the great western door of Westminster Abbey, aud there commence. S E L E C T GAM. ERY.- This Gallery was bv the Abbev door, and consisted- of two tiers, very neatly decorated outside, and containing seats made up in a style similar to the box seats in tbe large theatres. It seemed to have accommodation for about 120 persons, and the seats, we understood, were all engaged some days- before, - at - from ten to five guineas. The-, passage . to it was through St. Margaret's Church- yaM.. Both tiers were filled with spectators of a respectali! 8% » d superior, appearance. BROWNING'S GALLERY.— Next to that we desxribfld was Browning's Gallery, formed into divisions, and containing seats for l, f5() 0 persons. The-, seats in the front rows were covered with scarlet cloth; and the,. rest all with very neat rush matting. , The access to them was easv, by the number of staircases leading to- the different parts. ' ITie price of seats in this Gallery varied according to their proximity to the front— from Jive to one pound. Only a few of them were disposed of, notwithstanding their convenient and good situation ; and the builder must, no doubt,, have lost considerably by his speculation. . R I C H I I A N ' S GALLERY.— To this Gallery, which was next to the latter, and. might be said to contain half tbe number of seats-, may be applied the same observations we made on, that. Good seats- were purchased for half a guinea in this gallery on, the preceding night, and couldbe had . on Thursday for half, that sum ; but such was the apathy: and indifference of the people to the fete. With. which; the day was big, that in spite of . the proffered comfort,- and cheapness and commodiousnc- is of the seats,'. the gallery was not half full. . BANI. S; P, ER'. S GALLERY.— This Gallery was on the srtme plan and construction with the former, and can welkbear. the application of the same, . observations in every point.,; B I S H O P ' S G A LLERIES— There were five or six galleries under this denomination, and each of thou might be calculated to have accommodation for about 400 persons. They were next to Banister's, and similar to his in form and structure. There was one which was called " Bishop's Cathedral Gallery," and instead of forms covered with matting or cloth, su- ch as other galleries had, this was accommodated with rose- wood chain;, cane- bottomed, to the number of about 350. Notwithstanding that . Mr. Bishop Had for several days proclaimed that all the seats in this gallery were engaged, but still he could accommodate in his contiguous galleries, yet it happened not to be half full. With a new, we suppose, of inviting customers, hand- bills were posted up and circulated, stating that the spectators in the " Cathedral Gallery" could have a " grand and sublime view" of the Princesses, Ambassadors, Ambassadresses, and Peeresses, as tliev proceeded from the Hall through Poets'- corncr into the Abbey, and back again. This was too open a falsehood, and did not succeed in imposing on the credulity of the people. The. gallery, however, was neat in itself, and the company was accommodated with a band of music, stationed i. i an orchestra over their heads. The seats in Bishop's galleries were from 51. to 11., and less in the mcrnisg of Thursday. THE CAMBRIDGE GALLERY.— This was by S t . M a r - garet's Church, in the rank with those we have described, and could accommodate " 00 pcrsous, but was not i. clf full. T H E C E N T R A L PAVILION.— This gallery was hv'- t inside the railed garden opposite New Palace- yard, and was certainly in a style of incomparable neatness, and might accommodate about 6,500 persons, but was fated to have alptost empty ibenches. . In the centre of this gallery was an open space with beautiful walks and trees, and sun and shade, and promenades stated to be " not inferior to Vauxhall or Ranelagh." Under all these galleries which wc have thus cursorily noticed, were constructed dressing- rooms, retiring- rooms, arid refreshment- rooms, which were let out to tavern- keepers, who, at a high price, contracted for supplying the company with not even necessaries, but all the luxuries of the season. These went even further than the builders' in their speculations, but their disappointments were great indeed. To secure tbe public against any attempt or even possibility of imposition, they had previously posted up in the galleries bills of fare, but in the morning of Thursday the figures were ingeniously altered, (> being rendered, into 10, and 0 into ii. We do not ihean to say that this was done by all the hotels. The waiters, though the least of the speculators, were not the least sufferers, and they did not make any secret. of their disappointments, but moaned aloud, and oft exclaimed that it would be better to be at the oar, tiian procuring daintydishes which nobody tasted.. Not only their - time war, lost, but much more, the money, which they paid ( in their own phrase) for their places. What we have said of these few may, not with impropriety, be applied to all the other galleries which were erected along tiie Platform, on the side by the Sessions- house, which fatter was neatly fitted up by the Magistrates for themselves, and. families and friends, and some . seats also sold." We hardly know, when Ministers had a more important', lesson read to them than on Thursday last. . The scanty attendance at their nonsensical pageant . must convince them that, bribe as high as they wHl, a large majority of the. people hold them iu too. much contempt to partake of that bounty which is so mercilessly'wrung from a distressed, and impoverished population. The contrast between the Coronation, of the present and the late King. is most striking.... In almost every circumstance in which the representations of the' s nne ceremony could vary, t, he coronation of Thursday varies from that of- 1761. In the first place, the royal family consisted then, as now, of a King and a Queen. Hey different the treatment I : Then the Queen was crowned along with her husband, aud received the homage while Ehe contracted the obligations becoming her rank at.-. 1 station. N: tr, . ve are told, that when tbe royal couple appeared below the canopy in the procession, their recent union, a, nd their known attachment, called forth general sympathy, and procured affectionate applause. On Thursday last, the Queen was not only refused it participation > r » the ceremony of her Husband's Coronation, but even admission to view it. This necessarily introduced ail that difference in the marshalling the. procession, and , the subsequent ceremonies that arose from, the presence aud absence of ladies. In 1761,, as perfect union, prevailed, in the Court, the people's loyal attachment to their Royal Family was undivided, and without idloy ; whereas on Thursday last, the cry of " the Queen for ever' was considered by the . King's. pretended . friends as watjChwsrd for disaffection and the shout of disloj- i alty. At the Coronation of our- late Sovereign, we hear of ne barriers,- hetag thrown across the streets to keep off the . populace; - whereas on Thursday Palace- yard was .. cleared of. all persons . except the genteel mob who could, afford to pay considerable sums for their seats. -, . At the coronation of their late Majesties only, foot guards were employed iii Pali'ice- yard and slon-- the line of the procession; whereas- on Thursday we luid horse and foot, regulars, and. yeomanry, citv light, horse* and boxers. The troops in and about . London in September, 1761, did not exceed - 3,000 ; wherras mi Thursday they amounted to upwards of 20,000. I/ i 1781 the Spita'Oclds weavers hung out streamers and banners in honor of their Majesties' coronation: in 18- 21, we had illuminations at the Horse- guards, and at the houses of the King's tradesmen. • Jin 1761 the lower orders provided for their own amusement, at their own expense; whereas on Thursday, they grumbled and broke windows ( as we are told , by tbe Ministerial papers), even though they saw balloon?, fireworks, and illuminations, and could enjoy other entertainments paid for from U. s public purse. ' 2- 30 THE NEWS. CEREMONIAL OF THE CORONATION OF ( TEORGE THE FOURTH. [ Continued from Third page.] After a short pause, the procession again put itself iu motion. The herb- woman with her maids and the ser- ! crown) came from the altar,' and placed it upon his geant porter remained at the entrance within the west ' Majesty's head. At that moment the trumpets sounded door: the drums and trumpets tiled off to the gallery The Archbishop standing before the altar, and having St. Edward's Cretvn before him, took the same into his hands, and blessed it with the prayer, " () God, who crow nest? thy faithful servants with mercy," & c. Then the Archbishop ( the Dean of Westminster carrying the over the entrance door. At this moment the Abbey presented a most imposing spectacle. The Peeresses, their dresses sparkling witii jewels, and their white feathers waving in the wind, thronged into the seats appointed for them ( immediately below the choir); and were ranged in rows, to the number of one hundred and fifty- five, without a single creature of the grosser sex to disturb the uniformity or break tlie delicacy of the scene. The Foreign Ambassadors' box also attracted much notice from its glittering appearance. It afforded specimens of the costume of eierv country in amity with Great Britain, from the splendid uniform of Prussia or France, to the plain chintz gown and dark beard of a gentleman whose name we could not learn, but who stated himself to be the nephew of the Persian Ambassador, and claimed, in right of such relationship, to be seated with the ministers of foreign courts. The King having entered, amidst the noise of drums, trumpets, & c., ascended a theatre or raised platform erected immediately under the great tower at the upper end of the choir of the Abbey, and passed 011 the south side of the throne to bis chair of state, on the east side thereof, opposite to tiie altar; and'after his private devotion, ( kneeling down upon the faldstool), took his seat. His Majesty appeared distressed almost to fainting. It was with uneven steps and evident difficulty that he made his way up the aisle. The heat indeed was so great, that a lady in one of the galleries fainted and was obliged to be removed from the building; and the weight of the state cloak alone ( which had seven supporters) might have overpowered a man in the most vigorous bodily health. His Majesty being seated, the two Bishops, his supporters, stood one 0: 1 each side, the Noblemen bearing tht) four swords 011 his right hand, the Deputy Lord Great Chamberlain and the Lord High Constable 011 his left; the great officers ef state, the Deputy Earl Marshal, the Dean of Westminster, the Noblemen bearing the regalia, Trninbearers, with Deputy Garter, the Lord Lyon, the Lord Mayor of London, and Black Rod, standing about his chair. Then commenced the ceremonies of the Coronation.— The first was 1 THE RECOGNITION.— The King standing, the Archbishop of Canterbury said, " 1 here present unto you King George the Fourth, the undoubted King of this realm; wherefore till you who are come this day to do your homage, are you willing to do the same?" The reply through the flail was, with loud applause, in the affirmative, with " God save King George the Fourth." The two Officers of the Wardrobe then spread a rich cloth of gold, and laid a cushion of the same for his Majesty to kneel on, at the steps of the altar. The Archbishop of Cantarburv put on his cope, and the . Bishops were also vested in their copes. The next ceremony was T H E OFFERING, which consisted of a p ill, or altar- cloth of gold, and an ingot of gold. His Majesty was, during the offering, kneeling, as if in prayer. The Litany was next read by two Bishops, vested in copes, and kneeling - at a faldstool above the steps of the theatre, on the middle of the east side thereof. His Grace the Archbishop of York then ascended the coronation pulpit on the north side of the aisle, and delivered a sermon of about twenty minutes length. The text was taken from 2 Samuel, chap, xxiii, verses 3 and | 4 :- to me, he that ruleth ovet men must be jftst, ruling in the fear of God; and he shall be as the light of the morning wlien the sun riscth, even a morning without clouds ; as the tender grass springing out of the earth . by clear shining after rain." The sermon being at an end, the Archbishop prepared to administer the Coronation oath. The King rose from his chair of State, and, attended by his supporters, and tha Deputy Lord Great Chamberlain, went uncovered to tho altar, where, kneeling aipon the cushion, and placing his hand on the Holy Gospels, his Majesty took the oath, and added his Royal sign manual, the Lord Chamberlain holding a silver standish for the purpose. A11 anthem was performed and then came the OH. ING, or as it is called, tho ANOINTING. The King being disrobed, four Knights of the Garter, summoned' by Deputy Garter, held over the King's head a rich pall or cloth of gold, delivered to them by the Lord Chamberlain, and the Dean of Westminster, holding the ampulla contain cannon were fired without, and three cheers were given by the spectators. [ In all these apptaudings the chorus hoys were particularly forward and active.'] The an. them, " The King shall rejoice in thy strength," was then sung. As soon as the crown was upon his Majesty's head, the Peers put on their coronets, and the Bishops their caps. The Archbishop then pronouncing the benedictions, the Bishops and the Peers answered each benediction with a loud Amen. The Archbishop then turning to the people, said, " And the same, Lord God Almighty, grant," & c. Tiie King then kissed the Archbishops and Bishops, who knelt before him ; and the Archbishop of Canterbury, for himself and the other Lords Spiritual pronounced the words of homage, the Bishops kneeling around him, and saying after him. The Archbishop then kissnd his Majesty's left cheek, and the rest of the Bishops after him, and retired. Then the Duke of Yoi; k, ascending the steps of the throne, and taking off his coronet, prepared to kneel and pronounce the words of homage, but the King ( without permitting the ce, remony) raised him and cordially shook him by tho hand; and his Majesty observed the same course by all the Royal Dukes. ( Great applausofrom the spectators.) The Dukes and, other Peers then did homage in the usual form. In the meantime, the Treasurer of the Household threw coronation medals among the Peers and spectators. The latter caught at them with great avidity, and called frequently for it repetition of the ceremony. Their requests were complied with. The King who now. seemed dreadfully fatigued then took the Sacrament, and the ceremonies having- ended he went for about ten minutes into St. Edward's chapel, and during his absence the Abbey became literally deserted. As soon as his Majesty disappeared, the throng began to crowd out of the church. The peeresses departed forthwith; the box of the foreign ministers was emptied in a moment: the musicians and principal singers abruptly left the choir; and when the King returned, he had empty benches, covered with dirt and litter, on the one hand, and the backs of his courtiers, expediting their exits with a sauvc- t/ ui- pcut- Yiku rapidity, presented themselves to his view upon the other. This mode of clearing tiie Abbey may probably have been found. neccssary as a measure of convenience, but it certainly was a most unpicturesque arrangement. It li:; d the appearance of a want of due respcct to the Sovereign. His Majesty, however, though much encumbered with his splendid attire, moved forward with great seeming good humour, ar. d shook hands with the Princess Mary, as he left the Abbey, In the procession the King's robes attracted universal admiration, from their extreme magnificence. His train was prodigiously gorgeous. The six eldest sons of Peers carried it, three on each side, holding it loosely iu a horizontal line, so that it sunk iu the middle. It was decorated with large round pieces of silver. His Majesty did not walk under the Royal canopy borne by the Barons of the Cinque Ports, but stepped forward, and was very conspicuous to all the spectators. He had 011 a very handsome velvet cap, with a lofty plume ; and lie bowed continually to the multitude on both sides. Before he reached the gate of the Abbey he appeared almost sinking under the weight of his dress. The canopy followed at about eight paces distance. On his return it was very evident his Majesty was The God of Israel said, the Rock of Israel spake j much exhausted. The weight of the Crown seemed to oppress him, and his altered appearance was the subject of general observation, as the procession approached the entrance of the Hall. It now remains to speak of the reception this procession met with. We cancan safely say that it was of a neutral kind. Indeed there was a mixed tumult all the time, though not very loud. The applauses sometimes predominated; sometimes the groaning and hissing. Here and there some ladies and gentlemen waved their handkerchiefs and hats ; and there was just enough of this to show the perfect apathy of the great majority. In the galleries tlure was more approbation than the contrary, vice versa in the crowd on foot. Shouts Of " Queen, Queen!" occasionally got the better of all other noises, we thought particularly when the Peers passed. THE HALL OX THE RETURN FROM THE ABBEY. Immediately after the procession had left the Hall the preparations for the banquet commenced. There were the consecrated oil, and pouring some ir. to the ! three tables ou each side of the Hall, each table laid for anoiuting spoon, the Archbishop anointed his Majesty on the head and hands, and breast, in tlie furm of a cross, pronouncing the words, " Be thy head anointed with Holy Oil as Kings, Priests and Prophets were anointed." <•' Be thy breast anointed with Holy Oil." " Be thy hands anointed with Holy Oil," & c. The King then'arose and sat down in the chair; and the Dean of Westminster, having lir^ t dried all the places anointed, except the head and the hands, with cotton wool, closed again the pltices that were opened in his garments. Then a coif of lawn was deliverd by the Lord Great Chamberlain to the Archbi.' iop, and by huh placed upon the King's head, and linen gloves were also put on his hands; in the mean time a short anthem was sung by the choirs. His Majesty was then invested by the Dean of Westminster an J the Archbishop of Canterbury with the Sit - pttr- futMcd;— tUe Spurs,— the Sword,— the Mai, tie and Armi!,— the. Orb,— the Ring and the Sceptre. Then THE Ontm- NIKC tool; plats. fifty- six persons. The seats were so constructed, that each could accommodate two, a small space beiug left between, each seat. As soon as the cloths were placed, 33( 5 silver plates ( the number of those who were expected to sit down in the Ilall) were laid on. each plate having fwo silver spoons placed near it. This was the first part of preparation. When it was arranged, the officers who had the care of what is termed the Coronation plate, began to place it 011 two large sideboards placed on the right and left of the Throne. The plate thus exposed was entirely of pure gold. It consisted of several large dishes and vases richly embossed. The centre dish on each side presented a fine bas- relief of the Lord's Supper. Below that, on the left, was a large gold tankard,' on the side of which was represented, in bas- relief, the story of the Grecian daughter. All fhe other vessels were richly embossed with various devices. Some of these splendid pieces are of a very ancient date, aud have graced the Coronation banquets of several of our Mcnarchs." A few of them wore markud A. II. ( Anna Rcgino), and some C. R. ( Carolus Rex). Immediately after the arranging of the coronation plate, the Royal table, at which were to dine the King, and the several male branches of the Royal Family, was placed opposite the Throne, and in part under the canopy. It was. nearly of a triangular shape ; the Throne supplying the place of what would have been one of the angles: at two of the sides were six chairs ( three at each) for the reception of their Royal Highnesses the Dukes of York, Cambridge, and Gloucester, who sat at the right of the Throne, and the Dukes of Clarence, Sussex, and the Prince Leopold, who wers placed on the left. The table was covered with rich damask cloths, 0: 1 which were wrought the Royal Arms arid the devices . of the several British orders, with their mottos. On these was placed a large oval mirror, having foursquarepieces projecting at different sides. In the oval centre, were the letters-" G. R." In the square compartments were painted the red and white rose, the shamrock, and the thistle. Besides these, there were four small figures and several stands, all in gold, placed on the table.— At a little before two o'clock, the waiters commenced laying 011 the banquet on the tables at both sides of the hall. The meats served up were all cold, and consisted of fowls, tongues, pies, and a profusion of sweet meats, conserves, and fruit of every kind. Before Ihe tables were finally arranged ( about two o'clock), the candies in the Several branches were lit. There were' thirteen chandeliers 011 each side of the hall, with sixty large wax lights in each. These consisted of very rich cut glass, with a profusion of drops. Besides these, there were 12 table stands, with eighteen candles in each. These, together with candles placed in the choir, amounted to nearly 2000 lights, exclusive of two branches of Argand suspended at the right and left of the throne. Such a vast display of artificial light would be calculated to add considerably to the splendor of such, a scene, if it took place after sun- set; but in the br « nd glare of an unclouded sun, which beamed through every window, any number of lights could not be found a desirable acquisition. On the contrary, they detracted from its splendour; and certainly from the comfort and convenience of every person in the hall. To those gentlemen whose seats happeued to be placed immediately under the chandeliers, the great increase of temperature—•• and that was very considerable— was not the only inconvenience; for occasionally large pieces of melted wax fell, without distinction of persons, upon all within reach. The very great heat was 110 where more visible than in the havoc which it made upon the curls of m! tny of the ladies, several of whose heads had lost all traces of the friseur's skill long before the ceremony of the day was concluded. It was a little after 4 o'clock when the procession arrived from the Abbey. As soon as the King made his appearance within the Hall, he was hailed with an unanimous welcome, the whole company standing up, clapping, shouting, and waving handkerchiefs. His Majesty seemed much fatigued, but smiled with the utmost good nature and condescension, and bowed in gracious acknowledgment as he passed. There was, Jiowever, a slight confusion on the first entrance of the procession, which if it was not originally caused, was greatly aggravated by a mistake of the Aldermen of London, who happened to be. attracted too suddenly to the tables where the good fare was spread, and by that, means to retard the progress of those who followed them. The difficulty being 9oon got over, his Majesty retired to the . private chamber, while the Peers dined, from which he returned at about six o'clock, when he was hailed as before, theband playing " God save the King." His Majostv then dined with the Royal Unites. The first course at. the Royal table consisted of 2- 1 g'old covers and dishes, carried by as many Gentlemen Pensioners: they were preceded by six attendants 011 the Clerk Comptroller, by two Clerks of the Kitchen, who received the dishes from the Gentlemen Pensioners, by the Clerk Comptroller, in a velvet gown trimmed with silver lace, by two Clerks and the Secretary of the Board of Green Cloth, by the Comptroller aud Treasurer of the Household, and by four Sergeants at Arms with their maces. Before the dishes were placed upon the table by the two Clerks of the Kitchen, the great doors at the bottom of the Hall were thrown open to the sound of trumpets and clarions, and the Duke of Wellington, as Lord High Constable, the Marquis of Angicsea, as Lord High Steward, and Lord Howard of Effingham, as Deputy Earl Marshal, entered upon the floor on horseback, remaining for some minutes under the archway. The Duke of Wellington rode to the left of the King, the Earl Marshal to the right, and the Marquis of Anglesen in the centre. The tno former were mounted on beautiful white horses, gorgeously trapped, and the latter his favorite dun- colored Arabian, tho caparisons of which were equally rich. Each was followed by a groom, and by the heads of the horses walked three pages, occasionally soothing the animals by pitting their necks. Their excellent temper aud the skill with which they were managed, however, rendered this almost needless. The manner iu which these Noblemen, and especially the Marquis of Anglesea, rode up the avenue formed through the Knights of the Bath, the Knights Commanders and Companions, the Heralds, the Pages, and a vast number of officers, in every variety of uniform, excited general admiration. While the 24 covers were placed upon the royal table, these Noblemen remained 011 horseback at the lowest step leading to the Throne, and. as the Gentlemen Pensioners delivered . the dishes they retired backwards between the three horses, and so left the Hall, They were followed by the Duke of Wellington, the Marquis cf Anglesea, and Lord Howard of Effingham, who backid their steeds with great skill down the wsptre of the Hall. The animals were most tractable and gentle, nor did they exhibit the least sign of fear or impatience; but when an attempt was made to applaud the proceeding, the horse of the Earl Marshal then became somewhat THE NEWS. .. - it alarmed, as in the course of his rehearsals he had not met with any thing like this species of reception; he reared once or twice, but was soon pacified by the groom in attendance. As soon as they were beyond t'iie limits of the Hall, the doors were closed. The dishes yet remaining uncovered, tlie basin and ewer were presented by the Lord Great Chamberlain that his Majesty might wash. He was assisted by the Earls of Abingdon and Verulam, and the Lord of the Manor of Heydon was in attendance with a towel. His Majesty having dipped his fingers in the rose- water, and wiped them, returned the napkin to the gentleman who had performed the service of bearing it. Grace ought to have been said by the Dean of the Chapel Royal; but some delay took place, we believe, in consequence of his non- appearance. The King called Sir T. Tyrwhitt, Usher of the Black Itod, to his side, and sent him in search of the Lord Chamberlain, who, however, did" not make his appearance. Grace was finally said before the dishes were uncovered; but in so low a tone that it. was wholly inaudible. ' Ilie Pukes of York, Clarence, and Sussex, sitting on the rig- Sit hand of the King; and the Dukes of Cambridge anil Glocester, with Prince Leopold, on the left; the Carver and Assistant Carver, the Earls of Denbigh and Chichester, took their stations at the bottom of the table, attended by the Earls of Mount- Edgcombe' and Whitwortlr, who acted as Sewer aud Assistant- Sewer. The Duke of Devonshire sustained the orb on the left of the throne, and the Duke of Rutland the sceptre with the dove 011 the right, supported by the Lord of the Manor of Worksop, with the ordinary sceptre, and the Peers hearing the four swords. The tureens and dishes were then uncovered, and the carvers proceeded to help liis Majesty to some soup, of which he tasted. TIIE CHAMPION. The first course having been removed, the attention of .' il present was called to the bottom of the Hall, by a long and cheerful flourish of trumpets. The great gates were instantly thrown wide open, and the Champion made his appearance under the Gothic archway, mounted on the venerable Cato. He was accompanied on the right by the Duke of Wellington, and on the left by Lord Howard of Effingham ; but his polished steel armour, his plumes, and the trappings of his steed, in stantly showed the capacity in which he appeared. He was ushered within the limits of the Hall by two trumpeters, with the arms of the Champion on their banners, by the Sergeant Trumpeter, and by two Sergeants at Arms with maces. An Esquire in half armour was on each side, the one bearing his lance, and the other his shield and target: the three horsemen were followed bv grooms anil pages. ' fhe first challenge was given at tlie entrance of the Hall, the trumpets having sounded thrice: it was read by the Herald attending the Champion, in the following terms:— • 4 If any person, of what degree soever, high or low, shall deny orgainsay our Sovereign Lord King George tbe Fourth of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, Defender of the Faith, son and next heir to our Sovereign Lord King George the Third, the last King deceased, to be right heir to the Imperial Crown of the United Kingdom, or that he ought not to enjoy the same, here is his Champion, who saiUr that he lieth, and is a false traitor; being ready in person to combat with him, and in this quarrel will adventure his life against him- on what day soever he shall be appointed." After pausing for a few seconds, the Champion drew off his gauntlet, and threw it upon the floor, with a very manlv and chivalrous air. As no one appeared to accept the challenge, the Herald took up the glove, and returned it to the. champion. The cavalcade then advanced half way up the hall, when it again halted, and the trumpets having again sounded, the challenge was read as before, the gauntlet thrown, aajf restored to the challenger. At the foot of the throne the same ceremony was a third time repeated, the Herald reading the challenge at the top of the first flight of steps- We should here remark, that shouts of applause and vociferations of " Long live the King" followed each restoration of the gauntlet to the Champion. His charger was considerably alarmed by the noise, hut he seemed to have a complete command over him, arid restrained his action within limits suited to the narrow space in which he could . be permitted to move. The Knightly appearance ami gallant deportment of the Champion obviously gave considerable pleasure to Jiis Majesty, who, taking the goblet that was presented to him by the Cup- bearer, drank to the bold challenger with a corresponding air of gaiety. The Champion on his part having received the cup, drank to the King, but pronounced the words " Long live his Majesty King George the Fourth" in somewhat of a schoolboy tone. Besides, he did not rise in his stirrups at the time, as we apprehend he ought to have ( lone. However, upon the w hole, this part of the ceremony passed off with great eclat. After the Champion had drained the cup, lie gave it to one of his Pages, who bore it away as the perquisite of his master. The hacking out of the Champion and of the Duke of Wellington and Marquis of Anglesea was not very well managed, partly owing to the pressure of the crowd on the floor which narrowed the avenue to the Throne. The Champion having retired the second course was brought in by the Gentlemen Pensioners precisely in the same form as the first, the Lord High Constable, the Ijord High Steward, aud the Earl Marshal, attending as before 011 horseback. PROCLAMATION OF THE STYLES. Immediately afterwards, Garter, attended by Clarencetix, Norrov, Lyon, Ulster, and the rest of the Kings and Officers of Arms, proclaimed his- Majesty's styles in Latin, French, and English, three several times; first upon the uppermost step of the elevated platform ; next in the middle of the Hall; and lastly at the bottom of 1 the Hall— the Officers of. Arms, before each prcclama- ' tion, crying " Largesse." After each proclamation, the company shouted " God save the King," and the ladies way id their handkerchiefs arid fans.' Dinner being concluded, the Lord Mayor and twelve principal citizens of London, as assistants to the Chief iiutler of England, accompanied by the King's Cupbearer and assistant, presented to his Majesty wine in a gold cup ; and the King having drank thereof, returned the gold cup to the. Lord Mayor as his fee. It was remarked, that his Majesty was engaged in conversation with the Lord Chancellor" at the time when the Lord Mayor presented himself to perforin his service. The King did not bow, as usual, as the Lord Mayor ascended the steps; nor on receiving the cup was he allotted to kiss the King's hand. The following services were also performed :—•• The Mayor of Oxford, with the eight other Burgesses of that city, as Assistants to the Lord Mayor and Citizens of London, as Assistant to the Chief Butler of England in the office of Butler, were conducted to his Majesty, preceded by the King's Cupbearer, and having presented to the King a bowl of wine, received the three maple cups for his fee. The Lord of the Manor of Lyston, pursuant to his claim, brought up a charger of wafers to his Majesty's table. The Duke of Atholl, as Lord of the Isle of Man, presented his Majesty with two falcons. The peers then rose in their seats, and drank good health and a long and happy reign to the King, which was received with three times three by the whole company. The Lord Chancellor, who sat on the corner of one of the tables, took occasion to observe that the toast ought not only to be received with nine, but with nine times nine. This remark did not produce any renewal of the acclamations.* " God save the King" followed, sung in fine style by the whole choir, the chorus being swelled by the company, all standing. The Duke of Norfolk then said, " The King thanks bis Peers for drinking his health: he does them the honour, to drink their health, and that of his good people." His Majesty rose, and bowing three times to various parts of the immense concourse— he drank the health of all present. It was succeeded by long continued shouts from all sides, during which the King resumed his seat 011 his Throne. Non nobis, Domine, having been sung by the choir, various Peers paid their homage and respects to his Majesty ; after which, the King receiving from the Dukes of Devonshire and Beaufort his orb and sceptre, retired amid reiterated acclamations. The King quitted the Hall at a quarter before eight o'clock; afterwards the company was indiscriminately admitted to partake of such refreshments as remained on the tables of the Peers. The Hall was cleared by nine o'clock. The attendance of Lords ( Ladies out of the question) was not such as to answer the wishes of those whom it most imported to have a fine spectacle for the public. Besides those who carried banners, regalia, & c. there were about 50 Barons, 20 Viscounts, 85 Earls, 12 Marquisses, and 8 Dukes; if we add 15 or It) more, for the Noblemen employed in the way above alluded to, the whole list will not amount to 190— little more than half the Peerage! If this calculation be exact, it will seem the less surprising that some anxiety should have been felt to gather in recruits frnin every feeble quarter. It is not many days, we have been told, since an autograph letter was addressed to an old Nobleman, approaching near to his SOthHiirth- day, the said letter proposing that the superannuated Peer should carry tlie Union Standard in the procession, and should be requited ( for he was once a soldier") with a Field Marshal's staff. This is recruiting on rather a heavy bounty, TIIE SCRAMBLE. Asseonas his Majesty retired, according to immemorial custom, to the observance of which it was not at all necessary to open the doors of the Hall to the populace, a rush was made by hundreds of Ladies and Gentlemen, and persons of greater dignity, to plunder the royal table ; in which, " O dire omen," the Throne was overturned ! When this tumult had subsided, the hungry spectators, who had swarmed down from the gaUerjjts into the area of the Hall, began to occupy the tables which the guests had left, and ttie reinainder of the dinner and dessert quickly disappeared: It was now discovered that the tables occupied by the Bishops and the Aldermen afforded the fewest relics to the scramblers. No doubt the temperance of the Right Reverend personages had been consulted by a limited frugality in the service of their board.. As for the City personages, they had come a long way by water in the morning, and tlicir appetites had been naturally sharpened by the fatigues of the day. During the time that the company were thus amusing themselves', some of the ehoristcr boys, probably the traditionary historians of the privilege, got upon the tables and began to demolish the ornaments. Tiie plundering, began by this brave assertion of ancient right and custom,, in an instant became universal. Ladies were seen in every part beseeching the Gentlemen to assist their fair endeavours to procure some memorial of the Coronation Saturnalia. At the Barons' table we saw a " gorgeous dame,'' who had taken possession of a golden statue of Britannia and her lion, too stupendous for her to carry; but,, doating over her magnificent acquisition, she waited ia patience for the assistance of some Judge or Privy Councillor to help her home with it. Thus has ended the Coronation without much either of the exultation or the tumult which those who display * If so nonsensical a proposal had been made in private company, we should have immediately pronounced the man drunk who made it.— ( Ed. Kern.) their friendship to the King hy enmity to the Qneen had been labouring, by a singular division of their strength, to produce. Never had the arts of puSIng been displayed in greater luxuriance upon any forthcoming lottery, and certainly some laudable efforts were made to divert the people ( at their own expense.) Some hundreds of persons, dressed 111 fantastic dresses, of course, always attract a cro^ d— but there was less of this than even those who most despised pageantry expected. Nowhere among the crowd was there any enthusiasm. Some applauded, some hissed, and tiie great majority were silent. It was a very different Coronation from the r. ccounts we have received of that of George 111, who being crowned with his Queen, amidst an undivided and enthusiastic people, proudly stopped midway in the procession to enjoy the highest glory of spontaneous applause, and looked back to the people on Westminsterbridge, who were bare- headed, testifying in the most vociferous way, the most ardent attachment. When his Majesty bowed in return for the scanty and mingled applause of the half- empty galleries,, which lined his route, his feelings must have been very different fromthose of liis father. Tiie fact is, the ceremony of the Coronation is only worthy of attention in two characters— as a relic of antiquity, or as an example of superstitious attention to existing rights. In every point of view, it is, in ninety- nine parts out of a hundred, alieap of tedious nonsense. What importance, for instance, can the most devoted arhnii'er of Royalty at present attach to the stifling of Majesty in hot weather under robes like feather- beds, with a train twice as large as a blanket ? What Majesty does thevestis dalmatica now carry with it? Who now thinks that the King derives strength from the greasing of his wig with sweet oil— or that his title is as well secured by Mr. Dymoke's challenge, as by the two hundred and forty- nine thousand three hundred and sixty- nine soldiers of various descriptions, kept in a time of peace ?— As an example of scrupulous and superstitious regard paid to rights, the Coronation, though hardly worth the expense, was as well worth it as many other objects on which hundreds of thousands have been expended- The exclusion of the Queen deprived it of this character. It shewed that the whole was a pageant dependent on the will of the Sovereign; that the highest subject of the realm might he excluded even from witnessing the solemnity by an exertion of the will of the King.— Every thing that passed bore the character, not of right allowed by the King, but of pageantry dependent on his pleasure. In this sense, of course, it is like a squib or a sky- rocket, or a stage- play— it is only to be estimated by the calculation what it will cost to exhibit, and what it is worth to see. For our own parts, we think it is not worth the money expended on it. At any rate, as it has been performed by " special desire,'' the expense should be defrayed by those for whose pleasure it has been exhibited. LONDON GAZETTE.— Saturday, July 14.

After the Procession had entered the ' Abbey, the greatest part of the populace moved off to the Green Park, to witness the ascent of Mr. Green, in a Balloon prepared for the occasion. At about a quarter past one the gentleman took his seat in the car, and the ties which held it to the earth being undone, he ascended steadily and almost perpendicularly for a few moments, f t then obliqued in a north- easterly direction, which it held until it was lost sight of, which was not for a considerable time, in consequence of the extreme clearness of the atmosphere. When at the height of several hundred ynrds it was observed stationary for a few moments, until three or four bags of sand were seen descending from the car, when it immediately rose with rapidity to a distance, from which it appeared no larger than a Peer's coronet, and soon after it dwindled to the size of one of the balls with which such coronet is decorated ( and which, by the bye, it much resembled from tlie reflection of the noon- day sun upon one of its glossy si'ken sides), until it finally disappeared, as if it had melted into ether. The place from which it ascended was an inclosed piece of ground between the Basin and Piccadilly. The aerial voyager continued waving a flag to the people below, so long, as he was visible- He descended about two o'clock, in a field near Potter's- bar, North Minis. HYDE PARK.— The crowd then moved forward to Hvde Park, to witness a boat- race, which took place a little before two o'clock on the Serpentine- river. Upon this occasion four boats started, and were obliged to double a standard,, erected at either extremity of the river, twice. The race was won by about two lengths of tiie winner's boat. The river was covered with boats filled with ladies and gentlemen regaling themselves upon the water ; and its banks lined with carriages and welldressed persons, who appeared to derive much enjoyment from the scene before them. But what excited the greatest share of attention from the spectators was a splendid triumphal car drawn by two elephants, one before the other, as large as life, and caparisoned after tile Eastern manner, with a young woman, dressed as a ' slave, seated on the back of . each, and affecting to guide tlie animals with an iron rod. The machine was constructed on a large raft, which was towed by three or four boats, manned with watermen in blue uniform.. THEATRES. COVENT- GAKDEN.— Every part of this Theatre was as closely crowded as it was possible to pack human beings. Of the respectability of the company it may be unnecessary to say any thing. The bundles of hats and bonnets and shawls suspended from the front of the dress- boxes, formed a very grotesque exhibition, and was as much contrasted with the usual elegance of that circle as imagination could have contrived it. The Plav was Henry Ilr., and every incident or expression of broad humour or forced conceit was sufficiently apjilauded. When the Company on the Stage sang God save the King, the shouts of " The Queen," were quite deafening, and the popularity of the amendment was testified by every species of vociferous applause. DRURY- LANE.— The crowd in this Theatre was nei tiler so numerous nor so well dressed. The Play, The Spectre Bridegroom, seemed to give them an unbounded delight. The preference of a " sovereign to a guinea," was cheered without interruption. Here, too, " The Queen," was shouted with great applause. THE ' ILLUMINATIONS. The illuminations by no means corresponded to the magnificence of the, day. We question if any illumination of this Metropolis was ever less general. Most of tbe streets were nearly altogether dark, and even leading: streets, such ; is the Strand, were very partially lighted. I t is evident thatthe heart of the people was not in accordance with the notification. The conversation, of the crowds in the streets afforded a pretty unambiguous explanation of the cause of this phenomenon. The people were strongly dissatisfied with the system pursued respecting the Queen, and they took this manner of shewing it. IIow very different the feeling manifested on, this occasion, and that exhibited on the abandonment of the proceedings against the Queen. Then tho hilarity of fhe people exceeded all bounds; Thursday night, where open discontent was not manifested, there was at least a heartless indifference. On Thursday night tire Public Offices, the houses of Court tradesmen, were splendidly jUuminated ; then they were not; but to make amends for this, every Btreet and lane of this great city was one, blaze of light. Thus Ministers have made it impossible for a people, anxious on all occasions to manifest their loyalty to> the Throne, and their attachment to their Sovereign, from pitying the mark of respect now wished from them, from a feeling of the impossibility of doing so, without appearing to acquiesce in what they deem a marked injustice to their Queen. They have in this manlier deprived the ceremony of Thursday of a finale of more importance to a reflecting mind than all which preceded it. Sir. Sergeant Taughan met with a serious accident on Friday morning as he was driving his single- horse chaise through Leicester- square, in consequence of the animal falling. The Learned Gentleman was thrown out with considerable violence, and much bruised on tlie head and knee. Not the least curious sight in the Hall on Thursday last, was Cribb, Richmond, and Randall, the three pugilists— the former dressed in scarlet, with a blue sasli ( the dress of the Peers'' attendants.) These notorious persons moved backwards and forwards in the Hall with a mimic air of official confidence; and Cribb crossed the canopy- bearers, the last time they paced the Hall while practising, with an ale- jug in his hand, and apparently for the purpose of ref reshing some of his companions with an invigorating beverage before they encountered the fatigue of the day. Cribb repeatedly ascended the platform, and talked with some of the official characters in attendance, apparently either to receive instructions, or what is more likely with such unobtrusive gentlemen, to give them. MARRIED. On Saturday, W. A. Orlebar, Esq. of Charlotte- street, Bedford- square, London, to Mary Curoline, second daughter of the late B. Longuet, of Bath, Esq. On the 14th inst. J.

ALSOP.— We are sorry to learn, says The Advocate, that Mrs. Aisop, the celebrated actress, died suddenly yesterday morning. Her death is attributed to taking too much laudanum by mistake; she had been sick for several days previous to this unfortunate occurrence.— ( A'etv York Paper.) LONDON MARKETS.
