Tua QUEEN OF PORTMAI..—In 1828, when Donna Maria was last here, a subscription was entered into by the Portuguese residents, to present to her Majesty a sceptre and a copy of the Constitution, as a mark of their loyal attachment. No opportunity occurred of fulfilling the wishes of the subscribers, until Monday ; when the deputation ap- pointed in 182n were favoured with an interview with their youthful mistress, at the Clarendon Hotel. The sceptre, Nrhielt was made by Messrs. Storr and Mortimer, of Bond Street, is of pure gold, with em- blems appropriate to the occasion, and has, on the upper part, the Por- tuguese arms, resting on the Constitutional Charter. The Constitutional. Charter, printed on large vellum paper, was bound in green silk velvet, with the arms of Portugal on one side, and the initials of the Queen (M. II.) on the other ; it was superbly embroidered in gold. The Queen, and her father and mother, left town for Paris on Tuesday.
