Lady Jane Franklin, relict of Sir John Franklin, arrived in this city on Friday last, from Washington, accompanied by her niece, Miss Cracroft, and a female servant, and took apartments at the new Spotswood Hotel. She is a pleasant lady of 65 or 70 years, and of small stature. Her object in visiting Richmond was merely to inspect the different monuments, etc., in its vicinity. Having no acquaintances in the city, Mr. T. W. Hoenniger, (the manager of the Spotswood Hotel,) escorted her to different points, where the best views were to be had. She visited Church and Gamble's Hills and Hollywood Cemetery, and expressed great delight at what she termed the "truly magnificent spectacle" before her, remarking that it resembled very much the English city of Richmond. At Hollywood, she evinced much interest while inspecting the different monuments, and remained at the tomb of President Monroe some fifteen minutes, making memorandums of everything she saw and had pointed out to her.
