The dinner party at the Govemmeot-h** last night was a small and select one,con?i ^ " tion?f her Mqesty's fatigue; but there grand banquet this evening, to which ?Ul!r(t and military authorities have been j j crowded with JS^Duehwaof Hesse Darmstadt arrived this morn fno at twelve o'clock, in a travelling carnage and ifa'and were received with a salute ot guns from ?he'fortress Alter v.sitiug the Government-house, the rove I duke waited upon her Majesty at the Ho tel dr 1'Europe The Q ieen, Prince Albert, and most ot the mem bets ot her suite, attended divine service at the Eimlish church at three o'clock this afternoon. 1 ie Rev Mr Dunnage officiated. Mayence, Monday ?Tnis morning, precisely at seven o'clock, the Queen left Mayence for f rankfort, en route for Wurzburg. Her Majesty's travelling carriage was preceded and followed by a guard <> hocorof Prussian lancers, and a salute ol 21 guns was tired from the fortress as the royal cavalcade left the city Her attendants and suite lollowed iri^ two open barouches. a heavy luggage van brought up the rear From trie pace at wnich the carriages ; proceeded through the streets and across the bridge of boats, the |ournev no doubt will be a long and a tedious one, and will try the patience of the royal travellers before they reach Coburg. The Fairy steam yacht has been ordered to remain at Mayence till the return of the Queen. Frankfort-on-the-Maink, Monday Morning ? The Queen arrived here this morning at halt uast ten troin Mayence ; but as Her Majesty required no refreshment, sh" did not alight, nor make any stay in the town. Whilst post horses were being put te the carriage, Her Majesty received the congratula tions of the Austrian and other Ambassadors, who were in attendance to receive Her Majesty : but there was uo reception of the municipal or military functionaries, as was expected. The people came flocking down in great numbers ns soon as they heard of the arrival of the Queen and Prince Al bert, and a general feeling of disappointment ap peared to pervade all classes when the carriages drove on througli the town, and it became known tnat Her Majesty had determined not to remain here Her Majesty did not remain more than five or at the most ten minutes in the town, and as soon as post-h irses were put to the carriage, drove on to wards Wurzburg, where they will arrive at about nine o'clock this evening. Her Majesty will sleep there this night, and to-morrow will go on to Co burg; but it is expected that she will stop at soine | in ermediate place on the road. The Queen will remain at Cohurg till the 2Sih only, as/lis Royal Highness Prince Albert has ex pressed a wish to go to Scotland for a few days' : shooting, in the month of September. At the grand banquet given by the King of Prus sia '? Her Majesty on Tuesday, the 12th instant, at the Palace at Bruhl, His Majesty proposed the heuitn of the Queen in the following short but highly ani mated and appropriate speech :?" My lords and gentlemen, fill your glasses to the brim 1 There is u word which inspires with unspeakable delight every Bri.ish and German heart. That word re sounded once over a field of battle, after a fierce struggle?as the symbol of a brotherhood in arms, which had been blessed with success. This day that word again resounds after thirty years of peace ?that happy fruit of the arduous work of those days, here in the German lands on the banks of the beau tiful stream of the Rhine?that word is Victoria! Gentlemen, take your glasses and empty them to the last drop. The object of the toast is Her Majesty the Queen of Great Britain and Ireland. Long live Queen Victoria and her most illustrious consort!" Cobi ro, August 21.?Our last account of the Queen, left her Majesty passing through the city of Franklort. The Royal cavalcade arrived here on the 19ih, and the journey of her Majesty from Wurtzburg here, except that the weather was not so propitious as could be desired, was not the least in teresting part of the royal tour Bumberg, through which the route lay, was full of the inhabitants of the surrounding country, who gave the Queen a Itearty reception during the few minutes she remain ed in the town. The distance from Bamberg to Coburg, is about 2d miles, through a fertile and populous country. After passing Zapfendorf the . road runs along the bank on the Main?a river pre senting at some points, scenery scarcely inferior to thiton the Rhine?and passes Staffelberg?a hill of remarkable form and commanding aspect. On the Other side of the road rises a height, on which stands the Palace ct Prince Maxanuli?n of Bava ria, which was formerly the convent of Banz. Pass ing Lichteniels?a town of some importance?the frontier of Bavaria and the Duchy of Saxe Coburg are soon reached. Here the roval party were met by the King and ?Queen of the Belgians who had preceded them to Coburg, and now returned thither with them.There was a \ery pretty triumphal arch at the boundary, and the cortege, as it passed on to wards Coburg, preceded by the postilions (in their gav and characteristic blue dress, and with plumes of white feathers in their hats) looked picturesque enough, and certainly quite different from anything of the kind we see in England. Carriages,belong ing to Prince Augustus of Saxe Coburg and other members of the family, also swelled the procession, which was assisted hr a large body ot huntsmen of the House ol Cobuijf dressed in their uni/orm of green and gold, and with th-ir carbines slung over their shoulders, The reigning duke ot Stxe Co burg was also at the frontier to receive his brother and sister-in-law, and he rode by the side of the royal carriage, the King anu the Queen of the Bel guns being within. The reception at Coburg was one of the most Eleasing sights that can be well imagined. At the oundary a splendid triumphal arch stretched across the road, from which hung flags, and every house in the long line ot street through which the royal cnrti^e passed was gaily decorated with garlands, festoons, fLgs, and flowers. Better ana prettier Still to see were the smiling faces of the inhabitants lining the streets, and clustering in all the windows. Ttie great buildings ot the city were aiso profusely ornamented. The Townhouse and the Palace of the Prince of Fur^tenberg were especially decorated with garlands, iestoons, and flags. Arrived at the palace ot the Duke, a fine building in the modem Gothic style, forming three sides of an immense quadrangle, and with a turrettrd en trance, the royal party alighted and partook of a slight refreshment, and then, after a short delay, proceeded to the summer palace of Kosenau, abont lour miles from Coburgh. The chateau ot Rosenau not being sufficiently capacious for all the Royal visitors, us illustrious owner, the Grand Duke, has taken up his quarters at a small place at a short distance from the chateau. The Duchess ot Kent and the Prince of Leiningen are at the Resi dent in the town here. King Leopold and his Queen oscillate between his chateau of Fulbbach and a house in the town, and the Grand Duke ot Baden is at Callenburg. The Queen and Prince Albert occupy the same room in which Ins Royal Highness was born. Rosenau itself is the beau-ideal of a summer resi dence. Although built on a princely scale, it looks like an enormous cottage om(e, embowered in trees and flowers. The name, Rosenau, " the meadow of roses," aptly describeajhe lovely valley >alace from which the palace rises. The views com manded from the windows are of the finest kind. After the natural beauties of the place, the next peculiarity that strikes an English mind is the utier absence ot all ceremonial and exclusiveness. There is not a gate or a sentinel in the whole place ; but the country people come and go, and look shout them as they please, under the very windows of ilie palace, with no other restraint upon them than their own sense of sell-res|>ect. Her Majesty rose early this morning, and walked out in the grounds before breakfast, accompanied by Prince Albert. The joy of his Royal Highness at returning to his fath ir's halls, his birth place, and the spot where he passed the happv years of boy hood, is described as having been delightful to wit ness. He conducted her Majesty through the va rious departments, pointed out the most pictuiesque spols in the grounds, with the chateau on the distant and fir-crowned hills. Her Majesty seems to |>arti cipate in her concert's happiness; for here she roams about unstared at, unattended, and unentered at, by gaping and vulgar curiosity. Not more than four miles from Rosenau, nearer Coburg, there ia another summer residence, the palace of Prince Ernest of Wurteniburg, from which a very line view is obtained ot the vale in which Coburg is situ ate, the spire of the Church of St. Maurice rising hold I v Irom the centre of the city. On the opjiosite heights ia the fortress of Coburg, which her Majesty went last evening to visit, driving over from Kose nau for the purpose. As to Coburg iuelt, the notion entertained ol it in England is one of the most absurd. The city is much larger than is generally supposed. The palace ot the King is a noble structure, and the great build ings of the town are very little interior to any of the same of recent erection in the chief towns of Ger many. These are comparatively modern, hut the town itself is much more ancient. The streets, however, are wider than :n most of the older towns in Germany. The houses ate, lor the most purr, white ; and, above all, they seem remarkably clean The theatre, hIm), is a neat building, but small; und the suburbs of the city, in which there are villas in abundance, are of remarkable beauty, combining a very rural air with much elegance But what is, after all, much more interesting to the stranger, and more surprising to the Englishman, than the merely physical as(>ect ol Coburg, is ihe wealth and com fort it displays The residences of the better classes Hre distinguished by much elegance ; and there is no poverty or squalor, but, on the contrary, much ap pearance of substantial comfort in those of the lower. The j>opulation of Coburg is about 10,000. That of ?1 ... J ,11'JL ' Gntha, which la about 75 mile* from here, is 14, When her Majesty arrived at Coburg the whole po pulation turned out to ineet her. There were dense masses all along the road between the frontiers and the town. Not only these were there, but also the people of the surrounding country, in a circuit ot many miles, came in crowds into Coburg Some came as much as twenty German miles, and some from Leipsic. It was stated that there would be at Coburg u grind reunion ol Royal personages?that not fewer than fifteen crowned heads would here meet Queen Victoria. At present, besides lite mem bers ot the Ducal house of Saxe Coburg, there are only the King and Queen of the Belgians, the Duch ess of Kent, and the Prince of Letningen, tne half brother ot her Majesty Queen Victoria. August 22 ?The Queen and the Royal party as sembled here at present are ovine in comparative retirement. There is a complete change in the ha bits of the Court from those t<> which ,Dey are ac customed at home. Her M qesiy lose at an early hour this tno-ning, and walked about the grounds of Rosenau lor some time previous to the morning meal The atr was soft and balmy, and as the Queen expressed a wish to breakfast in the ojten uir, the Royal party partook of their morning repast on a terrace, before one ot the fronts of Rosenau. a spot which the late Duke always selected for hii evening meal,as it commands one ol the most beauti ful views of the valley. After breakfast Her Ma jesty walked again in the grounds with Lady Can ning, who sketched some of the most picturesque spots in the surrounding scenery, at her Majesty'* desire. The Duke and Duchess of Saxe Coburg Gotha ar rived at Rosenau in the course ot the morning from the cottage Schweitzerei, and at one o'clock the whole party proceeded to Coburg, and alighted at the Uesidenz, where they remained whilst the pre parations were going on lor the? The annual spectacle ot the Feast of Gregoriusis one of the customs or rules of Papal sway, to which this country was formally subjected, tt has been continued for the last three hundred years, and is kept up with funds long since bequeathed for the purpose byvarious chnritable people. It fell on to-day; ana in that spirit of simple enjoyment and relaxa tion from courtly ceremony which has characterised the visit ot the Queen here, because it seems to be the custom of the country, her Majesty and the whole royal party came down from the Palace to be present at the gay scene, and, rerles, never since its first establishment, was this ceremony celebrated with so much irlat as on this day. In a spacious meadow in one ot the suburbs of Coburg, pavilions were erected, and a portion of the ground opposite these pavilions was fenced in with festoons and gar lands. In the pavilions tables were laid for dinner, of which the Royal visitors were to be the partakers. Besides the pavilions there were ulso many other booths, a travelling theatre, and a most grotesque roundabout, with hobby horses and sledges,mount ed on whicn were musicians playing a most musical poika, and girls and boys in fantastic dresses This was the preparation on the ground. The festival was of a different kind AIL the children of the town school-1, girls and bovs, formed, according to cu -toirt, in procession, to ;he number of (>00 or 700 The girls were all dressed in white, with green rib bons?ilieir heads adorned with ivy wreaths, and iheir dresses festooned in like manner. Some wore fincy costumes?the Highland dress, the Greek drees; and there were tiockr. i.f the prettiest little shepherdesses in the world. The greater number of the bnvs also wore fancy costumes?'hey were dressed as jagers, Highlanders, ?reeks, Tuiks Al banians, to say nothing of one or two first rate little Napoleon Bonapurtes, and an unexceptionable Cap tain Maeheath. The scene was one which a Wat teau, a Wilkte, or n Boucher would have delighted to draw. Ths moving little troop of mummers preceded the royal party to the festival ground, marching to mu sic, where they were formed into lines. The Queen with her illustrious host and hostess, and the whole of the royal party arrived on the ground at a quarter to tour o'clock ; and when her Majesty alighted and walked into the tented field, leaning on the arm of the Prince-Consort, a burst of joyous greeting and welcome rent the air. As soon as the royal promenade was over, the children's came. They formed in procession, and walked round the enclosure to the music of the bands, passing severally by the Queen It was a pretty sight. The little lair-haired girls in their chaste costume of white and ivy wreaths, and the strange, and often grotesque, mixture of ihe fancy dresses of the boys. The wiiolewas one of the gayest and most animated scenes we ever remem er to | have witnessed. The part of the whole affair which will most surprise an English reader is, that in a very few minutes after the procession was over, the whole royal party sat down to dinner in the pavilion, amidst all the noise of the jarring bands, and the clashing of the cymbals, and under the gaze of thou sands of people lo our own Queen it must have been a scene of peculiar novelty, and the people in England wi'l no doubt be not a little surprised to lind that so many crowned heads and royal person ages as were here assembled could, without the loss of their supposed dignity, dine in this af frtnco style in a meadow, surrounded by so many of what we should in England deern the ruder elements ot rus tic gaiety. During dinner, the children danced be fore the tent, some ot them waltzing in as good time us the dangneset at our own English Opera House After the dinner the youthful cnorus burst torth into " God save the Queen," and also sang some of our national airs. '1 he Queen caused seve ral of them to be brought to her, and addressed them in iheir own tongue, much to their delight and astonishment, for many of them conid not con ceive how it was (lossible for ail English Queen to speak any other than her native language. At a quart-r to 6 o'clock this happy scene was brought to a conclusion, and the royal party retired The Queen aptieared delighted with the spectacle, ' and it seemed as if some of the happy faces before '? her reminded her of her own children* for she was j evidently much moved once or twice by the warmth I of their youthlul gaiety. The children remained on the ground until nightfall. We omitted to mention that, after the procession, the children were regaled with cakes and wine, and each ol them received a present of twelve kreutzers, about three ;>ence English. Aug 23 ?We have little worth communicating, for alter the little excitement of the festival yester day, the royal party have settled down into quiet again After leaving the festival ground, they re turned to the town palace, where there was in the evening a ball It was over at an early hour. Sup ;*-r was served at half-past eleven, and the royal party returned to Rosenau at two o'clock. Her Majesty, the Prince, and the Duchess of Saxe Co 1 burg (the wife of the reigning Duke,) drove out to-day tor a short time. They came into C 'burg to see the museum and picture gallery. This will in all probability be the history of the movements of the Court here for the next lew days?indeed, until Tuesday next, when Prince Albert's birthday is to he celebrated. The Court will leave the next day for Gotlia, where they will remain four or live days, returning by way of Kulda and Frankfort to the 15 lune, on their journey home. It is exacted that there will be a grand stag hunt, or rather a battue on a very large scale. To-night the Queen and the ; chief visitors at Rosenau attend the theatre in Co burg. The jiertormance will be Schiller's Bride of Messina. The Duke of Saxe of Meiningen is ex pected to join the dinner party to-day. The beauty of the neighborhood of Coburg in- 1 creases upon you the longer you stay. From every point fresh views open, and with the most delightful variety. Calleribarg, the favorite palace of the j rngain" Duke,* distant about tour miles trom Co i burg, commands song; of the finest prospects. Like almost all the imlaces or " residences" around, it is perched on an ? imiience. which is reached by a winding road thro gh ie pi *r t oton, quite as beau tuu! as thr f which l-ao to Rosenau The interior of me palace is lined up hi tin* mo-1 elegant and at the same time "comfortable" style. Indeed, it deserves to be so cha' "termed more than royal residences generally. There is no o-t'-utatu.u or 1 display sucu as is met wiili in " show places," but everything is ot the most perfect workmanship, and in tile most exquisite taste. This summer palace is not built en a grand scale, but, like Rosenau, it hss more die air of the residence of a privute gentleman. It* architecture is an odd mixture of the turreted rtyle with the cottage ornft, and the ellect is verv pretty, although the materials are congruous. Here the Duke and Duchess sjiend the greater part of their time during the tine weather, and a more delightful retreat could not have been selected. Like every- ? thing else in and around Saxe Cohurg, it belies the vulgar notions entertained in Knglund as to the Ger man style of living and manners. The Duke isfond of spcr'ing, and keeps here a small pack of hounds. 1 he residence is full ol evidences of his inclination this way. J he room, for instance, is almost entire ly filled with emblems of the chase, worked into all imaginable ornaments. The easy chairs are made of antlers Another rooin (the Duke's private study) is filled with engravings of every sort of sporting, French and fOnghsh t he country, however, from being so much wooded, is not well adapted to field- I spores generally; but a large preserve ot wild hoars is maintained at a short distance from Kallenherg. Attached to the palace is a neat private Chapel, fn which the Lnglish spectator is surprised to see tin crucifix on the altar, as in Catholic churches, l et tins is a very general custom in the Lutheran churches of Germany. August 21th?The place where the festival of(Ire g nus was held the other day is now once more a complete fair, A travelling theatre is open, where tumblers and conjurors exhibit their feats; die round abouts are in lull plav, and there are crowds of peo ple ol all ages and classes, and of both sexes, who iue eith'-r dancing to the merriest music, or sitting at the booths drinking beer and smoking. The chil dren ot the town schools are in their fancy Cos tumes,waltzing away,happy and merry; these are the jNinday amusements of the interior classes, for the higher, there are concerts anil other musical reu nions I '"h-r the Ute Duke the theatre wan always ( open on the Sunday evening, but since the acces nioft of th# present Duke, the practice has been tiie? c ntinued. Last night HerMajesty visited the theatre of Saxe Coburg, which is a hanasome building, the external torm and architecture of which are unpretending and appropriate, and the internal decorations ele gant. In form and size it somewhat resembles the Hayniarket, but it is, if anything, larger than this theatre Th< whole of the centre ol the dress cir cle, Iron the one bend ol the house to the other, is occupied with a spacious Royal box, which, of course, directly fronts the stage, and commands a better view than the Royal boxes in English thea tres. There is over the dress circle a second cir cle, and over that two galleries. The parterre ex actly corresponds to our pit, and there are uLo stalls called the parquet. Some idea ol the rate of prices will be formed troin the tact that the admission to the paniuet and the dress circle is 2s. Sd. of our mo ney. Tne stage is about the size of that of the Hay inarket, but much better lurnished with scenery and "properties." The dresses are lirst rate. The pluy selected lor performance was Schiller's "Bride ol Messina." The performance commenced at seven o'clock. In the uucal box, which the Queen enter ed just before the performance commenced, was Her Majesty, and on her right the Duke of Coburg, and at the other end the Grand Duke of Baden. In the middle of the first act the King and Queen of | the Belgians arrived and took their places in the : front seat, the two Queens sitting together, and i laughing and chatting during the evening. The Duchess of Kent and his Royal Highness Prince albert were on the same bench, and near them the 1 Prince of Wertemberg; the Duke and Duchess of | Coburg being seated on her Majesty's left hand.? Tne play w;as Schiller's tragedy of the "Bride of i Messina"?it was very little attended toby the Royal party, who laughed and chatted together, evidently enjoying themselves without restraint; coffee, ices, and confections being handed round between the acts, of w hich her Majesty and the courtly circle partook with apparent relish. Indeed, I never the Queen looking so well, or in such high spirits. Iler Majesty wore a white satin robe, richly trim med with lace, with a necklace and pendants ol large brilliants, and a simple wreath ol roses in her hair. The Queen of the Belgians, who was also dressed in white, had a profusion ol long ringlets i clustering about her face, and flowers in her hair. , The story of the piece is far too mystical and Ger man to suit the English taste, and t have no doubt j that many of those whom courtly etiqutte compelled ! to remain were heartily sick ol this maudlin affair j long before it terminated. The heroine, Donna Isn ; belfa, was played by Madame Schroder Gerlach, and she certainly appeared to enter fully into the i spirit of the poet, and there were occasional bursts I of tine and impassioned feeling, which elicited some well-bred applause. At the conclusion of the i play the orchestra struck up the National Anthem : the audience rose, and the Queen udvanced to the | front of the box and bowed repeatedly. In a few | minutes the royal party were en route for the cha I teau, which they reached before 11 o'clock. A num ? ber of outriders and huntsmen preceded and follow ed the carnages, bearing torches in their hands, and when the cavelcade was at full speed, winding i through the trees at the bottom of the valley, or I rounifing the crests of the hills, the effect of the : numerous flaring torches, streaming like meteors in thv night air, was singularly beautiful, reminding one of the wild and unearthly hunt of a German legend. This morning the Queen enjoyed her usual walk in the grounds of the chateau, and afterwards at tended Divine service at the church of St. Maurice, at Saxe Coburg. Iler Majesty, the Prince, the Co burg Trinces, the King and Qu >en of the Belgians, and the suite, arrived at the chureh at about a quar ter to 11 o'clock. They were received by the cler gymen in their robes, and conducted over a carpet I way to the royal pew. The service then com | menceil, the ehurcn being crowded with people. , The service began with the chanting of a few verscB by the clergymen standing at the Communion-table, i to which there were responses by the choir. Then i the congregation generally joined in a hymn; then [ (tortious of scripture were read, then another hymn und a short prayer, and then followed the sermon ; alter which there was a blessing from the Commu nion table, as iu a Roman Catholic church. A military brass band was stationed in the theatre and accompanied with their music the chanting : t f a Te Deum?not the Te Drum of our churches, i but a sort of hymn in rhyme. The music was com I posed bv Schicht. This was sung by the choir ' alone. The etfect of this hymn, and of the fine volume of sound rolling through the Church, was magnificently grand. In certain parts of the service the congregation also sung, and in a manner whie^A evinced sound musical training, producing an ' no very different from that of our English p.-almo The Queen wore a white dress and a white shawl' striped with crimson. The service 1 isted till twelve o'clock, and the royal party left the Church to return to Rosenau. Aug 23?The arrangement still is for the Court to leave nere on Wednesday morning A journey of about, nine hours will bring to a seat of the Duke's, heiweeu this and Gotlia, where they will rest till Thau-day morning; they will then go to i Goihd. On their way, on Wednesday, they will lunch at Meioingen, To-night the royal party are again to attend the theatre. A German comedy, by i Gutzkow, will be performed, entitled Zopf und Schioert It turns U|>on some of the eccentricities of the Court of Frederick William I., father ol Freder ick the Great. August 26. The perfoimance of lust night was u conieJy by Karl Gutxkow, entitled The Queen and the Sivord, and the selection w.ts made, 1 under stand, to afford the Queen an opportunity of wit nessing an opera, a tragedy, and a comedy, during her stay at Coburg. Her Majesty reached the thea tre shortly after seven o'clock, the dinner having ta ken place at five. The Queen of the Belgians sat on one side of her Majesty, and King Leopold on the other, the other members of the distinguished party being seated nearly in the same order as on Saturday night. The house whs, if possible, more densely crowded than on either of the former eve mntrs, and having arrived rather late, I had some difficulty in procuring even standing room in the stalls. The comedy illustrates some cf the broad and humorous passages in the lite ot Frederick William the First, King of Prussia, and Father of Frederick the Great. So tarns 1 could unravel the plot, there was a good deal ol the usu d intriguing to dispose ot the hand of the princess to the best advantage ; and there was one scene, in which the King invites all his ministers and generals to supper, and compels them to drink beer, und smoke long Dutch clay pipes, which convulsed the audience with laughter. The dialogue throughout kept the audience in a roar, and the Queen and Prince Albert laughed heartily at the broad humour of the piece. Some complimentary allusions |toG reat Britain,with a Prince ot which the King was, it ap|iears, endeavouring to etlect an alli ance, in reference to its resources and its value as a ! firm and honourable ally, were eagerly caught up by the audience, and despite the usual restraint imposed upon the public in the Duke's Theatre, loudly up plauded. At the close of the performance the Na tional Anthem was as usual played, all the audience standing. Her Majesty advanced to the front of the Royal box. and bowed and smiled repeatedly. She wore a white satin dress wfth the blue ribbon of the Garter across her shoulder. This day being the anniversary of His lioyal Higness Prince Albert's birth, the morning was ushered in by the discharge of cannon from the fortress, and the meadow near the entrance lo the town, to which a part of the artillery WM conveyed last night. After breakfast this morning, a number of the |i usantry, dressed in their picturesque na tional cotturne, assembled on the lawn in front of the chateau, chanted a German song composed for the occasion in honor of the Prince, and danced for upwards of an hour. Alter the nance, the Royal patty drove out in two open carriages, and returned to tne chateau to din ner. There will be a hall and a j/elite concert at Rotenau this evening, and in the town, two public halls, the expenses of which are to be defrayed oy the Duke of Coburg, will take place. At.oi st 27.?This morning, 1 witnessed the de i parture from the Palace of Tlosenau of our Most , Gracious Sovereign, lor the summer residence of tie Dukr- of Saxe Coburg, called Keinliardls hrunn, u beautiful Gothic edifice, which was former- ' ly a convent. Iler Majesty will pass the night u: tnis place, and t<-morrow morning make her en trance into Gotha, where the population has dis- I pliyed equal anxiety with that of Coburg to do honor to the British Queen. On the way to Remhardts bntnn, her Majesty will dine at Meiningen,and will he received by the Duke of Suse Meiningen, brother to the Queen Dowager of England. Our Sovereign remains at Gotha six days. This day week, early in the morning, the Queen leaves that city on her | return to England. Gotiia, August 2*.?-The authorities here have been officially informed that her Majesty Queen Vic toria will arrive at Gotha between five and six o'clock this af ternoon, and during the whole ol yes terday and last night the inhabitants were actively engaged tn completing the extremely beautiful and '?xieiisive floral and other decorations of the town, arid it is now a complete maze ot evergreens, bou quets of flowers, triumphal arches, nnd other fanci ful devices, the character of which is peculiar to this part of i iermany, and far exceeds in picturesqueneae of arrangement any thing I have ever witnessed in England. For a considerable distance on either side, the road was lined with the inhabitants, dress ed in their holiday attire, the children in white, with wreaths o| flowers in their hair, und holding , ? try u,jiK|uet- Young and stately pines were torn on i?* tlx*- thousand Irom the adjoining forest, and planter) in tows on either side ot the road, all the way in Iiihlbergluusen; men the du g-heap* and ntnr U'liifihtly t.jniln ulmig th, finite weie < nvet td until m'ltn/tii.i jr -ze, and every thin^ ira* dime tn make her M i l i_, h journey hb agreeaole and complimen tary as tl." means and ingenuity of the humble ia*a nantiy would enable them. At Ilildburghausen, the next stage, a town of some consideration, chiefly inhabited by Jews, and which was formerly the res tdence ol the dukes of that n?me, all the inhabitants were astir at an early hour, and the whole of tiie long lines of streets on either Bide of the post house at which the horses were to be changed were crowd ed with the inhabitants, headed by the municipal authorities in their state dresses, the principal in habitants of the town in the dark green uniform of the town guard, and the children of both sexes in front. Amrsr 29 ?In iny lust I announced the arrival of her Majesty at the Chateau ot Keinhartsbrunn, about eight miles from ihis place. The Queen was highly delighted with her journey, which was per formed witti great rapidity, and she repeatedly ex pressed her admiration ot the magnificent scenery ot the Thuringian mountains. After dinner the Queen was entertained by a novel and very interest ing s|iectucle?namely, a procession of the miners aad charcoal burners ot the Thuringian mountains, who assembled in Iront ot the chateau with lighted llimbeaux, and promenaded through the grounds ? The effect of the lighted torches among the trees and winding walks was extremely tine, and the Queen and his Royal Highness remained a consid erable tune on the terrace, highly amused and grati fied with the scene. At Gotha great exertions had beer made to re ceive her Majesty with due honor. All the little vil lages on the line ol route from the chateau were decked out with wreaths of myrtle and laurel; tri umphal arches spanned the road, fashioned into every variety of arrangement that ingenuity could dictate. The very toll-bars were wreathed with Howers and evergreens, and every cottage bad its humble votive offering of a simple wreath or bouquet of flowers, while the general effect of the whole was heightened by long rows of poplars and firs trans ported bodily from their mountain soil end planted along the road on either side. At the entrance ol the town a triumphal arch of great size, and built ot wood to imitate Portland stone, was the most con spicuous object. It was supported by loltly fluted columns, and on the top was displayed the arms of England, the sides being hung with wreaths of lau rel and myrtle. From this point to the entrance to the Palace of Frederickthal, about a furlong in length, th" road was one mass of triumphal arches, and wreaths of evergreens crossing each other at ihe top and turning round the poles on which the verdant canopy was supported. Rows of pillars were also placed along the sides of the principal streets, and these were connected by festoons of (lowers and laurels. Every window and balcony was filled, and in the short space from the entrance of the town to the palace there could not have been less than 10,000 persons assembled. Her Majesty's reception was extremely enthusias tic and gratiiying Auocst 30th.?Seldom, indeed, has any town presented such an interesting and animated Bcene as this capital of the Coburg Duchv yesterday. In ad dition to the honors done to a powerful sovereign, we hud all the rustic excitement and tumult of the festivities which follow the harvest and vintage in Germany. The Queen breakfasted yesterday morning before 8 o'clock, and soon afterwards walked in the lovely gardens of the Frtedenstein Palace. Her Mujesty then inspected the picture gallery, which contained some fine works ol the Flemish school. The library with nearly 200,000 volumes, the museum of natural history, the Chinese andJapanese museums,were in turn visited. This gallery is rich in curiosities. Her Majesty's curiosity was excited particularly at the hat ana boots left by Napoleon at the battle ol Leip sic, a gown ot Marie Antoinette, some articles that once appertained to Frederick the Great, Wallen sttin, &c. This morning her Majesty leaves lor Reinhards brunn, and will be present at a curious old custom of driving the deer into the smallest possible circle, and then making a battue of them. To-morrow morning, divine service at the Friedenstein church, will be attended by the royal personages, and a grand banquet will be served in the evening at the palace. On Monday, the Liederfest, or choral festi val will take place at 3 P. M After luncheon, the Dufce of Coburg and his il lustrious visitors went to iie museum, which they spent some time in viewing?they were ushered through the different rootnsby tne officers of the Cabinet, and examined with much interest the va rious curious and unique engravings, manuscripts, coins and medais, which it contains. At 2 o'clock, the roval and distinguished visitors went to see the fair. There were wax-work figures, cows with two heads, and sheep with six legs, ana tomical models, dealers in the black art and dancing girls, musicians and tumblers, and, but that the de scriptions of the wonders to be seen within, were ^nted in unintelligible German text, one might al ? ?t fancy that he was entering the Newmaiket rlairsp during the races. The Queen appeared highly am Med with the antics i of some mechanical figures placed in front of one of the shouts, and having pointed them out to the King of the Belgians, they both herrtily laughed, and with as much apparent enjoyment as the peasants assem bled on the green. Meantime the crowd continued to accumulate and extend over (he open ground. An express arrived here last night, stating that the King of Saxony was seriously indisposed, and would not be able to nav his resnects to her Ma jesty 1 he Court will be in the Isle of Wight by the 8th instant.

The 20th August, 1845, will ever be a memorable day in the ar.nals ot Antrim, that day having lieen selected by the Protestants ot that and the neighbor ing counties to inert and protest against the arbitra ry dismissal of James Watson, late Deputy Lieute nant and Justice of the Peace. The meeting was held in a field near Lisburn, anil the multitudes as sembled also to reproach the Premier for his ne glect, desertion, and oppression of those whom he had formerly fostered and caressed, as well as to sympathise with him who had hern the first victim of "Orange Peel." Mr. Watson, D. I ., J P , D G. M., Arc , the staunch Protestant Con rnodore, to he dismissed by Sir R. Peel, for mariaiing before his "Protestant boys" to church ! It was impossi ble to grasp the idea, and each miin feeling that he might nave done the same, and so have suffered, re solved to express his opinion on the matter before hand, and brave the storm which he was endeavor ing toprovoke.

At Halbersiailt, Rouge, the leader of this movement, was nearly as sassinated when preaching a violent sermon against Rome ; hut at other places he has had greater suc cess Our government is alarmed at the aspect the business is assuming, and has accordingly given or ders that the preachers of the new faith shall not be admitted into the Protestant chapels, and that the newspapers, with a few exceptions, shall refrain from writing about it. In some of the minor duchies the same proceedings have been adopted, and in Austria they were adopted months ago. From Austria we have intelligence that immense inundations have happened in nungary, and have done immense damage, as well as caused an exten sive sacrifice of human life. Tub New Reformation?T|ie Swahian Mer cury mentions that in order to prevent schism break ing out in Bohemia, which appears to show a dispo sition to catch the religious ugita'ion ol which ?.>er many is the theatre, " it has been signified to the Catholic clergy to take care not to alienate the [am ple by intolerance or scandalous conduct, lest they should detach themselves from the religion ol their lathers." The celebrated Czerski has, along with !>aenger and Muller, addressed a letter to the Von Gazette. dated 26th August, denying that they had adopted the Augsburg Confession of Faith. 'I liey acknow ledge, however, that their own creed do?s not ditfer from it in essential particulars, nor do they yet sepa rate radically from the Catholic Church, ot winch they reject the human traditions by which it has been detaced. Their community, therefore,xomes within the protection secured by the peace of Wesi phalia, and they are under the laws of tne confedera tion and of the State. Their aim is to repeal the pretensions of the Roman hierarchy, and human traditions, but they acknowledge revelation as it is manifested in the concurrent tradition ot all ages. They profess, while maintainingtheir own opinions, fraternal unity with the Catholic Church, as they do with the Protestant, and, indeed, with all which ac knowledge the fundamental docrines of Christianity. The Prussian Government, while prohibiting Rongc und his fellow-laborers from leaving their parisnes, nevertheless aflords them lull protection against persecution Near Brunswick, an assembly calling themselves " Protestant Friends," met on the 20th, to the number of between -100 and 500.

Spain. Our advices from Madrid are to Auguet 26. The Queen Isabella and her mother are awaiting the visit of the Due and Duchesse de Nsu.ours near the French frontier. Meanwhile ihey sire amusing themselves by taking baths, inspecting public build ings, visiting picturesque scenery, and attending bull fights, the barbarous brutality of which affords great pleasure to the Queen. A reduction of postage has been effected on let ters, but it has been contrived to treat newspaivers us letters, and charge them by weight. This will have the effect of almost doubling the cost of a newspa per in the country, and the double cost will ru n one half of our journals? a reeult that will ne verv agreea ble to our rulers, who detest the press, like nil op pressors of the people. Nothing appears to be settled us to the marriage ot the Queen, but it is thought that something will be done respecting it after the visit of the Due de Ne mours. Two vagabonds, employed by the pobc*, have been proved to have been in the h ibu of forging i correspondence and getting up conspiracies fur the purpose of implicating innocent [tersons obnoxious to the Government. Madrid, August 19?Yesterday evening some disturbance took place in the Las Vistillas qu irrer Several ex-royalist volunteers appeared in fhe streets altering most scandalous cries. A number of ex National Guards responded to them in a hostile 1 style. The |H)lice Agents hastened up, and a strug gle ensued, in which some persons are said to have been wounded, ami some of the ringleaders were cupruied. This morning the authorities are detennim a to execute the measures adopted yesterday. The Min isters had met in council at a very early hour, and had remained cn permanence at the Home-office: strong patroles of infantry and cavalry surrounded every part of the capital. This display of troops was necessary, for the people, instigated by various leaders known to the Government, were greatly exasperated. In the morning, before the patroles appeared in the streets, two or three isolated officers, a sergeant and some soldiers, had been surrounded and roughly treated. It is even said that in these collisions which preceded the I great military demonstrations made this day, eight or ten soldiers were wounded But two or three shots, have, however, been tired to-day, and it is not said that they have hurt anybody. It is, indeed, fortunate, that a day that commenced so tnauspiciously, should have been saddened by no loss of lite. The political chief, iu order to restore to the capital its usual aspect, and prevent alarm from spreading, hastened to publish a baiulo in I every' I'm ft tne capital, ordering, on severe |>enal ties, till the shops to he opened within four hours ; such as would not obey the bando were to be eon I sidercd and prosecuted " as accomplices of the rebellion attempted Hgainst the execution of the laws passed by the Cortes, and sanctioned by the Crown." It would appear that this resistance to the new system of taxation had been but n pretext. Such cries as "Viva la Regua !" "Viva la Constitution!" "Mueran los tiratios!" were alone uttered, and "Viva Espartero!" was distinctly heard in some parts. At half past two ihe numerous and i compact groups that thronged the Puerta del Sol beg tn to disperse. Some shops, and especially the coffee houses, were o|?cned, but most of the shops continued closed, despite the aforesaid severe bando. The suburbs and lower quarters (Barios bams) were comparatively quieter tnan the more populous i quart-rs, but the presence of very large detachments of troops had attracted an extraordinary crowd to wards the Puerta del Sol. At half past four the groups had disappeared, bul the troops were still under arms. The people have no whera appeared in arms. t , Six P. M.?The town is quiet, and all continue in the same state. No further gatherings have taken plaee. The shops where provisions are sold have | obeyed the Political Chief's orders, but the other larger sho[?s, of silks, Arc , Arc , art still closed, which at tins hoar is not surprising. They will pro bably open to-morrow Nine P.

A large number of arrests have been effected. Madrid journals of the 20th instant, stat- that tranquility appeared to be re.-tored, and the shops wt-r- re-opened. A court martini, appointed by the captain general, has tried the persona arrested at the riot of ike l!)ih. Only one man, who had killed an officer by stabbing bun wilh a poinard, was con demned to death Sever d others were sentenced to the premdo. The Heratdo announces that the re signation ol General Concha has been accepted, and that he is replaced by General Breton, from ihc same command in Arragon; General Mauso, who was commandant in Gld Castile, is removed in the same capacity to Saragossa The Ti>mpo pretends that seventy-eight persons were arrested, having amongst them some of the greatest tradesmen, who refused to o|ien their shops. Tne persons involved in the affair id' Colonel Henjilo li id been rescued by force, at the moment when the oliicer wns about to conduct them to the guard house ; but they were af terwards retaken by the troops. It is also stated that two persons entered the sta ble where Cordova's horses were kept, and offered 4000 dollars to a servant, provided lie succeeded in assassinating the General. The servant, according to the same account, indignantly refused, and knocked down the man who made the offer. The other escaped. All was quiet on the 20th. Ilelfglnm.
