Lady De Lisle and Dudley, eldest daughter of the King,

and a great favourite with his Majesty, died on Monday night, at Kensington Pa- lace. She had scarcely recovered from a confinemetit when she was attacked by the influenza ; and afterwards bye cough, which the severe weather aggravated. Such is the account given of the illness which caused her death.

The delicate and sentimental Times is quite shocked that the Dutchess of Kent should have had a party at Kensington Palace," in the same habitation " in which the body of the King's " favourite child" was lying. " Same habitation !"—cant. The Times knows that Ken- sington Palace is a cluster of separate habitations, where several fami- lies have as distinct establishments, as if they resided in different streets. As to the indelicacy of having a party on Wednesday, when, we should like to know, was it established as a rule of etiquette that to the memory of the illegitimate children of the King such marked respect was to be paid, as the Times pretends to have expected from the Dutchess of Kent? The Tories have mot always treated the Fitzelarences after this fashion ; however amiable and respectable some of tine family may be,--and Lady be Lisle, we believe, was the flower of the flock. To show how completely at fault the Times is in this matter, it may be well just to mention, that the Dutchess of' Gloucester had u dinners party also on Wednesday, at which the Duke of Cambridge and Prin- cess Augusta were present. It is very well known that the Tories are excessively tnortified at the failure of their matrimonial and other speculations in a certain quarter ; and their blundering organs cannot help venting the spite of the faction theteupon. Hence all this palaver about pour Lady De Lisle, the affection uf the King for the Princess, the few and far.between visits of the Princess to Windsor, and the impudent insinuations against the Dutchess of Kent.
