Queen Victoria

--The Queen of England recently gave a concert at Buckingham Palace in honor of her daughter and guest, the Princess of Prussia. When all those who had been invited were arrived, the Queen instead of entering the apartment where they expected her, ordered a carriage, and taking with her one of her daughters, the Princess Helena, went to pass the night in a country house she owns at Richmond, from which she returned next day. Prince Albert did the honors of the concert to the great surprise of the guests, for whom this singular incident of course furnished a theme of conversation during the evening Speculations respecting the Queen's sanity are very common in England.
