A railing of a half dozen long, rounded wooden bar* and •bout four feet in height prevents entrance except through low wooden double gates. At the hack is a long altar.

Kdward’s crown was made for the coronation of ('harles II. in Ititil. There ha* never been any attempt to arrive at us value, which i* roughly es timated at £385,000 sterling. Two good sized pear shaped pearl pendant^ on the top of the crown are known to be worth £0,000. 1 lua crown and that of Queen Victoria rest among crown jewels valued at more than £7,000,000. ’They rest in a grout case inside the iron-barred affair at the top of Waketield tower in a room which is said t® have been used by Henry VII. for his devo tions while a prisoner in the tower nml where he was murdered. 'The intrinsic value of the crown of Queen Victoria is something over £3,000,000. It rest* at the top of thn case and was made in 1838 for the oorona tion of the queen. Its chief jewels were taken from older crowns and from the royal collection. Among these is an enormous ruby which came, into the possession of Kngland from Spain in 13(17. Its history io dated back to a much earlier period. With 75 brilliant and large diamonds it forms a Maltese cross on the front of the diadem. Below it is a magnificent sapphire. There ate seven other large sapphire*, eight large emeralds and many hundreds of diamond* decorating the band and arches. A crus* at the top of the crown is mude up of a rose eut sapphire and four large diamonds. In all there are 1!,700 diamonds and ninny other jewels in the crown, which weigh over 3® ounce*.

Since then this plain and ancient looking raised plut form or chapel has witnessed all corona tions. The floor of the chapel is a mosaic pavement of curious design. The materials for the pavement were brought from Ib»me tnd laid about 1208. The pavement is com poser! of various kinds of marbles and porphyry interspersed with Latin inscrip tion* in bronzed letters. The groundwork is Knglish marble and the whole has been greatly injured.

That to be occupied bf the king wa« last u-ed by Queen Victoria at the jubilee, and yet bears the color* of that oc casion. This chair was made for Kdward I. to inclose in its sent tne famous stone of Scone. Tradition identifies this stone with the one on which Jacob rested his head at Itethel. His sons carried it to Kgypt, nnd from thence it found its way to Spain with King (inthe]us. son of (.'e< rops, the builder »f Athens. About 7<i() 15 ('. it appeared in Ireland, where it was carried by a Spanish king * son upon an invasion of the tight lit tle isle.

It is claimed for this remarkable piece which u* really Scotch sandstone, fiat m Cf) B, (’, Feigns, tne founder of the Scot tish monarchy, and who was of Ireland's ro>al blood, received it in Scotland, where King Kenneth, In 8.V) A. I)., deposited it m tne monastery of Scone. It is certain that .the stone was for centuries an object of vent ration to the people of Scotland. They fancied that while it remained in their country Scots would be monarch* of that realm \S lien Kdward I. overran Scotland he seized the *tnne and f/>ok it to Kngland where, in 1297, it w»v placed and kept in Westminster Abbey, notwithstanding the repeated efforts of the Scots *o reclaim it.

KING F.DWAltD’S HOIIF.S. 1 t"*r Are KrrlrsGcnl Gnrnients nnil Worn Ouly on Tlila Occasion. I he robes which King I'ldwatd will wear while being crowned, and afterward white receiving the sacrament, are ecclesiastical vestments, and worn only upon this occa* **i^n l»y the sovereign. Ttiey ure assumed its Westminster abbey, and taken olf there, after w hich the robe of state of purple velvet is put on. When the king enters the abbey be wears a crimson velvet eloak. The cor onation robe* proper, then, arc the priestly vestments, and consist of a dalmatic, stole and maniple. I he dalmatic is a long robe or super tunic, partly open at the sides, of cloth^of gold richly embroidered in colors, with Tudor roses, shamrocks, thistles, fleur de lis and royal coronets, and lined with crimson; the stole of bu'lion embroidery, with floral designs, has the cross of St. (tcorge worked at each end; it is lined with crimson silk. The stole is worn dcacon wi«e that is, while a priest would wear it crossed over his breast, a deacon fastens it on his left shoulder, and crossing it over hie breast secures the end under his right arm. The maniple, which much resembles th* stole, only smaller, is worn over the left arm. Tne reason given for attiring a lajmnn in vestments worn only by the clergy is that the monarch represent* the church, and is the protector of its privileges. lie fore the anointing the k>ng is conducted into ht. kdward * chapel and vested in these ecclesiastical garments, and after the act of homage they arc laid aside.
