The King of Hanover met with a slight accident on

Friday afternoon ; stumbling over a stone step at Kew, and somewhat bruising himself in the fall. The Queen and Prince Albert sent to St. James's Palace to make inquiries next day ; and the King was visited by the King and Queen of the Belgians and many other Royal personages during the following days.

Among the guests, were Lord Lyndhurst, Lord Denman, the Duke of Buckingham, several law members of the Government, and several noblemen and gentlemen of Conservative politics.
