The correspondent of this morning's Times says of the Queen Dowager, that the improvement of her health is constant : the distress- ing cough has in a great measure abated; she sleeps several hours every night, uninterruptedly ; and thus gains so much strength as to be able to set up every day without fatigue, even walking about the room un- assisted. Queen Adelaide's spirits have never left her, and have been her physicians' bestaid, The Dutchess Ida of Sale Weimar, the Duke of Saxe Meiningen, and
