If any special business errand ,be
deemed requisite fdr Americans, as
the subject of a call at the office of
their national representative at the
British Court in London, it may be
found, during the session of Parlia
ment, in an application for a ticket s of
admission to the House of Lords lOr
of Commons. On my way to the;
American Legation one morning for
this purpose, I took occasion to call
on Mr. W., au American citizen, who
with his party, was at the Royal
Cambridge Hotel, in Hanover Square.
—As in the journey of life, so in
journeyings for pleasdre, health or
observation, a man's enjoyments may
be doubled and his cares divided, by
the companionship of a better-half ;
further additions to the list beyond
the members of one's own family,
may possibly be suggested by taste,
benevolence or duty; but undoubted
ly, there is something of the chival
rous connected with the idea of un
dertaking a three years' tour and so
journ abroad,.Withfour lady friends
in addition tli/' a wife, under one's
sole and special protection. But, to
return to Mr. W. and his compan
ions. I raw the party first at Killar
ney, and again I met them-in-Dublin;
we chanced to be together in Edin
bugh fora day or two ; after a
month's interval, I again greeted
them in Westminster Abbey, and
now, at the Cambridge Hotel; they
vanished before me from Lohdon tb
the Continent, only to reappear soon
after my arrival in Paris ; and once
more the lines of our destiny were to
cross each other in the vale of Cha
=unix, beneath the shadow of Mt.
Blanc. The recurrence of similar
unlooked for meetings and recogni
tions of the wayside acquaintances of
ship or shore, are among the agreea
ble chances and coincidences, it is
probable, of most of those who min
gle in the ebb and tide of foreign
As a specimen of the customary
rates and chargeei at the better class
of hotels at the West End, I give the
following, as obtained.oy my friend,
at the Royal Cambridge. For a par
ty of three, the daily rates 'were as
follows :
Parlor and boa
Attendance ...
Dinner ..... .
Ice Watcr .
Lights. . .....
Tot4l £2lBs, or
_a little less than $5.09 (gold)
fur each individus.l.
As many people go abroad for the
especial purpose.of sight-seeing, and
as, to many, one of the most , inter
esting sights, is that of a_fashionable
wedding; to all such the locality of
this hotel offers special attractions,
from the fact that St. George's
Church—famous for" thegreat num
ber'of weddings there celebrated, is
on an opposite corner and in the im
mediate Nicinity. Even Ivltile I look
ed thitherward, a large party of the
kind was tossing forth trom its por
tals, many of them adorned With im
mense white bows and other insignia
appropriate to the occasion.
The office of the American , Lega
tion Irfound at 147 Great Portland
Street. The name sounds well, but
the general appearance of the quar
ter is not very aristocratic ; lutist of
the buildings in the vicinity being
small, And many of them occupied as
shops of various kinds. Mr...llortui,
the Secretary, was courteous and
business-like; with a name denoting
Irish descent, he was, as he informed
me, a Pennsylvanian. In regard to
tickets for Parliamentary admission,
oar Minister has the right of issuing
two each day, daring the session.
The demand for them being general
ly extensive, one must sometimes
wait his turn for weeks. It must be
applied for on the day for which it is
,t 9 be issued, previous to 12 It.; other
vese the first' new applicant secures
the ticket at once .
My own claim-being' necessarily a
deferred one, I went to Westminster
Palate towards evening, with the in-
tention visiting the House of Com
mons, if poloible, through the cour
tesy of some one of its 658 member,.
Stating my wish to one of the distin
guished officials who with gold lace
upon their coats, are stationed on
some unknown duty in the grew'
area of the basement entrance, he
seemed disposed at once to lend me
hie influence—the more willingly, he
informed me, as being himself
~ an
American, or at least a ' Blue-nose
from New 'Brunswick. An affair of
such magnitude was not however to
be achieved in a moment; a space of
some forty minutes, interlarded with
sundry diplomatic reports and confi
dential conferences, had necessarily
to transpire; during which, in order
to improve my prospects, he associ
ated another-funetionary in the en
terprise, which by the by, could hard

er air of importance,

aspirant for an actual membership.
Results finally appeared in the form
of a hasty pencil scrawl from Hon.
Edward Hay Leigh, and half a crown
each to my worthy advocates.
I . bad visited on a previous occa
sion the principal apartments of the
vast building, and had traversed its
ample corridors adorned with the
statues of eminent statesmen and
numerous paintings of various scenes
in English History; entering also the
session room of the Law Lords,
where three or four judges and advo
cates in immense gowns and wigs,
were engaged upoli the discussion of
some profound, but not widely inter
esting question, the entire audience
not exceeding half a dozen persons.
The galleries Pit visitors to the
-House of Lords or of Commons, do
not afford very anlple accommoda
tions or satisfaCtory opportunities for
observation, and the front is usually
occupied - by busy reporters. On this
occasion, iu the Lower House, the
subjects under discussion were those
of Eyre the Governor of Jamaica,
whose case excited a considerable de
gree of indignant censure, as well as
that of Sir John Lawrence, Viceroy
of India; and the Lieuteuaut . Gover
nor, Sir CeciPßearlon. Strong re
baarks were 'made upon what
appeared tO be accordine: ° to the de
tails elicited, the deeply culpable
neglect of the latter to provide for
the suffering inhabitants of the dis
trict of Orissa, where it was stated
that no less than 750,000 peopld had
perished during' the terrible famine
of the previous year. The subject
Was called up by Mr. H. Seymour,
and descanted upon at greater or less
length hy Swollett, Bruce, Lord W.
Hay, Sir Stafford Northcote, and
others. Mr. Stuart SIB], the author,
was present and made some nanarlis

rendezvous for meMbers of the Re

brief session of the House of Lords.

Lord Chelmsford, the Chancellonaud
ex-officio Speaker, seemed a tall, fine•
looking man of about 55, though as
I was infornied, he Wad in fact reach
ed his three score years and ten. The
ample red cushion which he occupies,
called the Woolsack, may Possibly
be stuffed with wool; whether or not,
and if so why, as Captain
. Cattle
might say, is beyond my knowledge.
Lord Russel, who was speaking at
the time .of -my entrance, seemed a
man of florid complexion, rather
short in stature, and with white hair
and whiskers. Lord Strathcaton,
who followed him, although a man of
good address aucTexterior, evidently
did not command to any great ex
tent the attention or respect of the
House;As was evinced by a variety
of inde6hrous exclamations and in

Earl Derby was present, and male
some remarks, which 'elicited not
only applause, but at times a consid
erable degree of merriment. The
Beform Bill, extending the right of
suffrage as regulated by amount of
income, had this day finally passed
the House of Lords. Such ae exten
sion was of course calculated to ex
cite a considerable degree of feeling,
and to-be regarded as n dangerous
innovation by the privileged classes
of a country where it has been said
to be considered impertinent for a
man with:, less than two or three
thousand a year, to have an opinion
on any subject of importance; never
theless, it is there found necessary,
now and then, to throw a tub to tLe
whale. - The Premier expressed his
entire satisfaction at the result;
the hope and ,belief that it ivould
tend to calm the prevailing agitation
of the public mind and producen de
gree of quiet and peace to which it
had for some time been a stranger.
He took occasion also in the course
of his remarks, to alluile appropri

The session was adjourned at an
early hoar ; whereupon the Lord
Chancellor was ushered forth by the
Sergeant-at-Arms, carrying the great
gilded mace, while another official
bore upon a cushion something of
evident importance —it may have
been the Great Seal or perchance the
Crown, expressive of the presence of
Royalty during the deliberations of
the' Lords, spiritual and temporal.
—While the English press and the
English people, are disposed to criti

and embitter American politics, con

to require that the Royal family of

from the attacks of widely circulated
and outrageous slander. it is well
known that such is not the case. In
addition to the thousand stories -in
regard to the- Queen's eccentricities,
giving thqm almost the character of
utter insanity, the reported dissipa
tion of the Prince of Wales has af
forded another fruitful- theme for
general discussion; carious scandals
in regard' to the sorrows and oppres
sion said to be endured by one of
Victoria's daughters, the Crown Prin
cess of Prussia, agitated the public
mind for a considerable period, and
to such an extent that it became ne•
cessary thUt they should be clearly
and positively disproved; and a more
recent topic, nearly as highly season
ed and probably as devoid of truth,
has been found in the alleged domes
tic disagreements of the Princess
Louise and her Lord of Lorn. And
this morbid tendency of the - British
mind seems all the more unaccounta
ble in view of the circumstance that
.the Queen and her family, after all
and in fact, enjoy a degree of popu
larity greater than has been accord
ed to the actual and prospective
" figure-beads of the British consti
tution," during an extended period.
If would really seem as-if the various
classes 9f the Anglish people delight
ed in " aspersing the idols \dem in

vate affairs of the Royal family are

In conversation with a citizen of
London, who claimed opportunities
for some. personal'lnowledge of the
Prince of Wales,' he was disposed to
vindicate his character from the loft'
repeated charges of intemperance
and grossly- dissolute habits; allud
ing meanwhile to other state mynt •
in regard to his domet,tic life that.
were 4bsoluAlly shocking, and not of
a • character to be repeated here.
Punch hs.s represented him as tread
ing in the broad shadow 1.4 George
IV., with the legend, " Lead on—l'll
follow!' Without the aline and
the high t'-ne of mind that character
ized his father, he is said upon good
authority to have a strong attach- •
went for t his wife and cbildreq he
has, moreover, a love fur horses and
dogs and a . horror of the corpulence
to which-ibis system seems inclined.
Alexandra, his wife, who is a sister of
George King of Greece, seems to
have taken the. hearts of the English
by storm, even as her ancestors ; the
Danish Sea King of old, took and
held their co ists. An incident of a
somewhat pleasing character, as il
histratingthe kindu&.s of her dispu
sition, was related to .toe One mem"-
ing at tho breakfast table, by a
worthy couple. Yorkshire; A
recent visit of the Prince r,lid Prin
