So, Lord MELBOURNE has prevailed upon the innocent young Queen to undergo the ceremony of proroguing the miserable old Pan bament in person. No doubt, a certain electioneering use may be made of the show ; but it would have been more generous to dispense with it. The Queen has lately had excitement and trouble enough to entitle her to escape from the fatigue and annoyance she must stiffer on Tuesday. To support the heavy robes of state in which she must be en- veloped, will be almost too much for her strength; and we understand that the people who manage these matters are puzzled bow to get over the difficulty, which the unexpected demand upon the personal endurance of the young lady has occasioned. The Premier's gallantry should have given or procured for her a respite till the opening of the new Parliament, in the cool of autumn.
