King's Departure for Scotland.His Majesty's arrival at Greenwich Hospital was announced by the firing of a gun, and the Royal Standard was immediately hoisted at the top of the Governor's house. When his Majesty came out of the Hospital and appeared at the landing place, he gracefully bowed to his subjects, immediately descended to the Royal barge, and was rowed alongside the Royal George; the bands of music on board the State barges playing God save the King. On his Majesty's arrival on board the Royal Yacht, he was received with three cheers and the Royal Standard hoisted. The Comet steam vessel took the Royal Yacht in tow, and proceeded down the river, accompanied by the Lord Mayor in the city state barge, and the Merchant Tailors' and Goldsmiths' Companies in their barges, which were followed by an immense number of vessels and boats. Pleasure boats without number, and every steam vessel on the River, seemed to be in a state of active requisition. The Hero steam boat had a company on board that, in point of number, exceeded any thing ever witnessed. The Swiftsure, Venus, Eagle, and Comet, steam boats, were occupiedwith very large companies. The venerable Earl St. Vincent, as senior Admiral of the Red, was in attendance at Greenwich at a very early hour. The spectacle of the embarkation was altogether a brilliant one. The fineness of the weather, the river covered with vessels of all kinds, gaily decorated and filled with well-dressed people, the concourse of spectators that filled every place where a view of the scene could be obtained, the costumes of the Greenwich pensioners, the soldiers and marines assembled on duty, presented a lively picture to the eye. Eur. Mag. Vot. 82.

The Isle of Dogs, usually so deserted and so sombre, displayed a moving mass of animation. The acclamations were loud and reiterated when the King appeared. A great number of Noblemen's and Gentlemen's cutters had made a rendevous at Greenwich, equipped for sea. Of these fast-sailing boats it was supposed that a fleet of at least a hundred sail attended the Royal squadron.

The preparations for the contraction and other judicious alterations before the curtain of Drury-lane Theatre are commenced; to complete which, the erection of the scaffolding is estimated at an expense of at least £500.

At the late sale of the property of his Royal Highness the Duke of York, very little was actually sold, and the amount of the two days' sale of what was sold and bought in is about 140,0951

On Thursday last, being the anniversary of the opening of the Regent's Canal, a numerous party of the Directors, Proprietors, and their Friends, inspected the Canal from Limehouse to the City-road Basin, where they afterwards dined at the Macclesfield Arms. The party were much gratified with the progress making in the formation of new works establishing on various parts along the banks of the Canal, and with the increasing activity of business throughout its whole line.

Absentees. It will scarcely be credited by those, who have no means of knowing the circumstance, that there are from 100,000 to 150,000 English and Irish people of property living in different parts of the Continent. Whole towns are absolutely peopled by them. In Paris, the Duke of Hamilton, with the Earls of Stair and Fife, at an expense to themselves, or rather to their country, of 100,000l. per annum, lead

the fashion to about 20,000 English persons, of a mixed character, at Versailles. Mr. Robert Williams, the Member for Carnarvonshire, with his numerous and amiable family, and several titled persons, have, for some years, taken up their residence in the neighbourhood of Geneva. There are 1,500 English families with the Duke of Leeds at the head, the Marchioness of Bute, and many distinguished nobles of both sexes, at Rome. Lord Montford has lived some time near Bordeaux, surrounded by about 2,000, one half of whom are small fundholders, and one half Irish of 3007, to 4007. per annum,

when they can get their rents paid. At Tours there is a select corps of about 4,000, who pride themselves upon their family connexions in the United Kingdom. At Boulogne there are 6,000 English, 4,000 of whom are entitled to some compassion, being half-pay officers, who cannot live without wine, Prince Leopold very naturally expends his 50,000l. a-year in Germany. At Brussels the English and Irish congregate, and there is scarcely a town or village in France, the Netherlands, Switzerland, and Italy, in which they are not to be found.

Upwards of seventy Barristers attended the late Devon Assizes. There was produced in Court, and handed about as a great curiosity, the brief, the only brief, that Devonshire ever afforded to the great William Pitt, who once, at least, travelled that circuit.

The green cloth which then covered the Court table, and on which he inscribed his name, is also preserved there, as an interesting relic.
