This interesting ceremonial, of which an official account follows, extracted from the London Gazette, took place on Wednesday the 16th. The day was generally observed throughout the three kingdoms with peculiar solemnity. In the afternoon business was altogether abstained from ; and in the metropolis and various other places, the churches were opened for divine service; while the chimes and muffled peals of the church bells produced a singularly mournful effect. Minute guns were fired in the garrisons, and on board the ships of war, while their colours were hoisted half-mast high. Almost every person appeared in deep or decent mourning; and, indeed, the whole observances of that eventful day marked most strikingly the veneration and respect which was entertained for the character and virtues of the late Sovereign by all classes of his subjects.

Herald's College, Feb. 19, 1820. The remains of his late Most Sacred Majesty, King George the Third, of blessed memory, lay in state in the audience chamber of Windsor Castle, attended by one of the Lords of his Majesty's Bedchamber, two Grooms of his Majesty's Bedchamber, two Heralds of Arms, four of his Majesty's Gentlemen Ushers, four of the Pages of his late Majesty, and ten of the honourable band of Gentlemen Pensioners, with two offi. cers, from Tuesday morning the 15th instant, at nine o'clock, to the time of interment. The Royal Body, covered with a Holland sheet, and a purple velvet pall, adorned with escutcheons of the Royal Arms, with the Imperial Crown of the United Kingdom and the Royal Crown of Hanover laid thereon, was placed under a canopy of purple cloth, also adorned with escutcheons. At the head of the corpse was seated the Lord of the Bedchamber between two Grooms of the Bedchamber, and the Heralds stood at the feet. The state apartment was hung with purple cloth; the King's guard chamber and presence chamber, leading to the state apartment, were hung with black cloth, and lined by the Yeomen of the Guard ; and the King's drawing room, leading from the state apartment, as well as the grand staircase, were also hung with black cloth, and lined by the Yeomen of the Guard. The public were admitted to the state apartment from ten to four o'clock on Tuesday the 15th instant, and from ten to three the following day.

At seven o'clock on Wednesday evening, the 16th instant, his Royal Highness the Chiet Mourner, attended by his Supporters, took his seat at the head of the corpse ; and, at half past eight o'clock, the procession (which was marshalled under the direction of Sir George Nayler, Knight, York Herald, executing this duty on behalf of Garter Principal King of Arms) moved through the state apartment, and the Royal Remains were conveyed to St George's Chapel in the following order : Trumpets and Kettle Drums and Drums and Fifes of the Foot Guards.
