Davis, Esq., a colored West India merchant, who has since settled on the Gold Coast, the Queen took the most lively interest in the event, and made Miss Forbes several handsome wedding presents, all of which were fully described at the time. Intelligence has now been received of a further mark of favor conferred on Mrs. Davis, who has just given birth so a daughter, to whom her Majesty stood godmother by proxy.

The cup and salver bear the following inscription:-- "To Victoria Davis, from her godmother, Victoria, Queen of Great Britain and Ireland, 1863."
