It is with great regret that we record the death

of the King of Denmark, which took place on Tuesday last at Hamburg. The Danish Royal Family, who were returning from the South of France, broke their journey at Hamburg, and the King, who seemed to have partially recovered from the arterial sclerosis from which he had been suffering, took a walk after dinner. A. return of his trouble, however, occurred, and he died in the street from heart failure. As he had no one with him the body was for a considerable time un- identified. The King of Denmark, who was the uncle of King George, the father-in-law of the King's sister, and the eldest brother of Queen Alexandra, was greatly loved in his own country and inspired the respect of his brother sovereigns, with so many of whom he was connected by ties of blood.
