It is rumoured that her Majesty and Prince Albert will visit Brighton about the 14th August. We have good reason to believe that his Royal Highness will review his regiment here some time in that month, but whether it will be as early as the 14th we are unable to say : it will depend, we understand, on the completion of the order .1i,r the new regi- mental clothing, which is now being executed with all possible despatch. His Royal Highness had it variety of patterns submitted to hint, and had some difficulty in deciding as to the colour, being anxious to see this fine regiment second in appearance to none in the service. We understanethat his Royal I ugliness lass fixed upon crint,an overalls. The interior of the Palace is uow undergoing very extensive reembel- lishment, and a considerable number of workmen are employed— Brighton Gazette, July 23. • We understand that the new clothing of Prince Albert's lIussars is to be as follows—blue dress jacket ; pelisse also alma with fur cuffs and collars ; trousers, crimson with yellow stripes ; undress jacket, blue ; the burby or fur cap of seal-skin ; the horse to be covered with a crim- son labraque, ornamented with German silver. The clothing for four troops is complete. About twenty-five men are employed at our Bar- racks, and the remainder in Loudon, to complete the order. As we have before stated, there is no doubt that Prince Albert will review the regiment lucre, immediately after the soldiers are equipped in their new regintentals.--Brighem Gazette, July 30.

Her Majesty and suite having: expericaced much inconvenience from the closeness of the atmosphere in the Chapel Royal, :a. James's, work- men have for some time been actively employe 1 in c army ing out an ingenious plan which will remedy Ow dcfcci complained of, and they

have completed a stupendous external to convey the pure air into the interior of the chapel. The tube, which is of iron, is nearly fourteen feet in eiremnference, and is run up to above the top of' the west side of the clock-tower, over the main gateway leatling into the Colour-yard, in which the Royal Gerais on (171:y are rdieved. On the top of the tube are six nearly flat imps, one above the other, drawing a large current of air, which is commulticated to the interior by smaller tubes, so arrauged as to prevent the slightest danger from draughts. Another large tube has been erected to carry off the full air. In addi- tion to this improvement, there is an apparatus for Ivarming the air in its transit, as occasion may require. The roof of the tower and the clock-belfry have undergone repair ; and the dingy vane, together with the figures on the clock, have been regilt.
