The Queen has delighted the good people of Wolverhampton by

promising to go there on Friday, the 30th, to unveil a statue of the late Prince Consort by Mrs. Thorneycroft. The statue is in bronze, representing the'Prince in his Field-Marshal's uniform, —scarcely, we should think, his most characteristic dress. The Town Council voted the required funds in great glee, and there are demonstrations of joy all over the town that the Queen has con- sented to extend to England the favour she has so frequently conferred on Scotland.
