Once a year would not pall on tlie pul.lie, nor has London so many spectaclee aa to grow easily weary ol them. Then is a great turnout of people for this. in suite of the weather. I had heen warne I (needlessly as it proredl io be early ia my place at the House, aad drove through St. James's Park just before neon. The Queen was to leave Buckingham Palac. al half pris: one. Along the roadway by which she was to lass people were collecting in gration Tho pul iee were takiug their stations: -l.ooo ni thom in all were on duty in the p.irks aud streets, with sundry battalions ol household troops to lend them a hand should the aced for it arise. Once out of the Park, the crowd was gloater ia ;he streets, A lon_ file of carriage* was drawn np near tbe entrance to the House of Lonla. and rather than wait I got ont of mv hansom aad walked t<> the door. i. No carriages were setting down and a civil police? man toM me that uo one couldenterbefore 12, Tbe hour struck as be spoke, but still he said tbey lnust wait for onl.'i- before admitting us. The military spirit ruled : tbe pol: e ls half military in it-, organization, aud in these doubtful days, with fresh ramon ol dynamite filling tbe air, is more alert and more pieriae than ever. Presently ap? peared the bandso-ne, anxiona face of Mr. Inspector Denning, wno rules sopreaie in and about thc Houses of Parliament. I hean! afterward he lu:! rust ooma from a -ear. li of tbe v.lilts and other sus? picious places in this vast labyrinth. He looked keenly at the little group of people who bad gath med at the d.-.-r. each with los card in hand; aaaaaed to maka np his mind thal non-.' were in Ross.i'- pay, half recognized oue or two of na, and gave the word that we were to go in, The porch beneath which we had been standing waa tbe Peers' Entrance, lt bad bren curtained foi to-day with pay ly striped awning.: a shi Iter only too sun-1<> be needed in tbe midst of the sleet aud snow which hung in the air. The awuingsstretched on eithei aide tor a dozen yards and from beneath them you looked across the brood -p.ne- to Henry tbe Seventh's chapel and thc whole fabric of the A bl tey ; while to the right mee tbe Victoria Tower.

A areal book ?was egened and there was the reeerd >>t guests ..t spectators in 1880, aad my name was pointed out, The fact i\;i- aadeaiable and threatened t>. be damn int-*, lt seemed to operate like proof ol a mc vious conviction at thc Old Bailey. Promiaei which my ira i d volunteered of future good coudiu t on my p.ut, and a pledge never again to be seen in mh!i company, were all unavailing. It wa. onboard of that a ticket abonld lu- issued twice in success oi to the tame person, rbe book was closed : the negative, he aaid, was final. But later, ami nndei soma kindly pressure, this austere oft. ia! i. tented, bo h.-re I was in tiie Ninth (ealle-ry. with io '?' vacant benches to choose from, lt seemed, in;! seemed wionply. 'Ihe benches and everj single seat in the gallery were re served for ladies.

Taily H it was the chamber below us won already an air of animation. Functionaries in ijnaiut egarmenta were moving busily hither and thither. On the right of tbe throne near one-th rd oi tie honchos weie filled With ladies, and aver? ill.nut", nie.ie were arriving Thc eight Bun burners ol gaapeadent Irom tbe flat-ribbed ceilii were- ablaze, bal even with the help of tbe dim hirht which lound ifs way through tbe stained glasa of the outer windows the place was nonetoowell illuminated.

There was no gloom, there Wa* only an ab-ence of tba luminousness wanted to aol oft to tlie height the lavish gilding, tba norgeona frescoes, the endlesa magnificence of innumerable brilliant coetamee. The galleriee wera falling more rapidly than the door. All the ladies tu front nf us in this North Gallery were in .ourt dress like those below; Berthing wanting bot tho train, and some aerupaloaa ones \\o:e trains also: of which the;. had mach difficulty in disposing beneath the narrow benches. Feathers in tbe hair were compulsory, as at a drawing-room, but this i ip<>r was aol enfor. ed aa at a drawing-room, where any one oflendiug ia tho least particular oi the specified raimeut voald be ruthlessly beld bach by stem cbamberlama from the royal presence.

As Hiey entered, an official asked lum. with deference but Dimness, who was tue lady. ? My daughter." The official no doubt knew that he had no daughter, but the answer waa decisive, and they passed togctberon to th.- sacred door. To-day most ol the ladies as they ari ive are shown to the hem hes on the right of the woolsack .the woolsack is jost in front of the throne, and there Iiml such seats as they. can. But thoTwats on tba opposite aide an reserved. I can see from my perch earns on each, hut 1 do not know on what principle, if on any. some aro so mu n more favor, d than others. The favored ones arrive naturally later than tbe lem favored, ami some ilo not arrive at all, for among these dames remain aeated to the last some of the aquino who had gone to pay them h.image. There ia one point in wnieh today's proceedings resembled those ol' an American political conven? tion. They opened with prayer. 100|ht to have mentioned it e.n lier ior it occurred long lien.re tlie Queen caine, ami long before th.- royalties whom 1 have already named h.ol appeared. Hut ..ne cannot always be chronological. The i rayer came midway between the opening of tbe doors to the throng of sightseers and tbe approach of Her llajeaty. This indeed ia, in theory, like any other sitting of the House e.f Louis. Thc I.md Chancellor tonk his s.-.it at l o'clock instead of l or 5, and the Bishop of Southwell rem] mayers. Aft.: which matters went on as helene. But I must int sho-.t the story of these preliminary imi.huts, remarking oul* thal tin-two boars during which I looked on had natadnll moment in them. I'he decorous vivacity of tbe sn ne nover grew still, save when the loud and slightly narah toneaof Hie Bishop inspired silence mi everybody t>'.-f.
