The particulars of his Majesty's death, and an historical view of the principal occurrences of his reign, have been already given. We have now the melancholy task of recording the last sad tribute of respect paid to the mortal remains of our departed Sovereign.

Ash-Wednesday, the 15th instant, being the day appointed for the Royal obsequies, at an early hour on the Tuesday preceding, all the roads leading to Windsor were thronged with carriages, driving forward with the utmost expedition. On their arrival in Windsor they completely blocked up the streets. At one side, and in front of the principal inns, were carriages and four, filled with personages of distinction, eager ly enquiring for any accommodation which could be afforded them, and at any price. The great attraction of this day (if such a term be applicable to a pageant of such mournful grandeur), was the lying in state of our late lamented Sovereign. The publick were to have been admitted to witness this ceremony precisely at 10 o'clock; but owing to the necessity of making some further arrangements which were not originally contemplated, the state rooms were not thrown open until 11 o'clock.

At that hour the Publick were ad. mitted through the entrance to the Castle, called Queen Elizabeth's Gate. The crowd then passed on to the Eastern extremity of the upper court, and entered it at the Tower adjoining the department of the kitchens; after ascending the narrow winding flight of stairs in the Tower, the spectators were ushered into an anti-room, where two porters stood in full uniform, with crapes on their arms and staves. From the antircom they passed direct into the magnificent apartment called St. George's Hall, the chamber which is dedicated to the Order of the Garter. No sign of mourning met the eye in this splendid Hall, except a black cloth covering the Throne. Its paintings were all unco vered, and the fine allegories which decorate the walls were as fresh and brilliant as during the days of the grand pageants so often celebrated within them.

Passing from St. George's Hall, the crowd entered the King's guard chamber, the left side of which was railed off, so as to form an avenue of about ten

feet wide, along which the people passed. Without the railing an open space was

kept, in which several Yeomen of the Guard were stationed in full mourning.

From the guard-chamber the throng moved at once into the King's Presencechamber, which was the first room that directly reminded the spectator of his advance to the funeral bier. This spacious chamber was entirely hung with. black cloth.

In the Presence chamber were stationed a line of Yeomen of the Guard in full mourning. The next room, the King's audience-chamber, was that in which the body lay in state. This cham ber was hung with purple cloth from the ceiling to the floor, and lighted with a number of silver lamps and candelabræ filled with wax lights. At the upper end, under the throne on which his late Majesty so often sat in regal state, was placed upon tressels the royal coffin.

The canopy of the throne was on this occasion considerably enlarged, so as nearly to extend over the whole surface of the coffin. The foot of the coffin was the only part exposed; the pall, which was of the richest black velvet, was there thrown aside, and the silverornaments, richly gilt, lay open to view. The following is a copy of the Inscrip tion on the coffin plate:

Serenissimi, Potentissimi, et Excellentis-
s'mi Monarchæ,
Dei Gratia Britanniarum Regis, Fidei

Regis Hanoveræ, ac Brunsvici et Lune
burgi Ducis.

Obiit XXIX die Januarii, Anno Domini



Etatis suæ LXXXII, Regnique sui LX,
Two rows of Gentlemen Pensioners,
in full uniform (six on each side), lined
the approach to the Royal coffin
the steps of the platform, and on each
side of it, stoud pages of his late Majesty
in full mourning, and two Heralds, in
their full uniform, with crape, were
stationed at the foot of the coffin.
the head of the coffin sat a Lord of the
Bedchamber. The Heralds and Lords of
the Bedchamber were relieved every two
hours. Some Grooms of the Bedcham
ber were also in attendance; among
them were General Sir W. Keppel, Hon.
A. C. Bradshaw, and the Hon. Sir W.
Lumley. This chamber was lighted in
the most tasteful and appropriate man-
ner, by a happy arrangement of the


lamps. At each side of the coffiu were three large silver altar candlesticks, with very large wax lights. From the room where the body lay, the spectators were led through the King's drawing-room, and part of the State bed-room, and they retired through the Western end of the quadrangle.

During the day no less than 30,000 persons were admitted to see the mournful spectacle.

At half past four o'clock, after the doors were shut with regard to the Publick in general, the Eton youths were admitted. The Masters, Fellows, and Scholars were all in deep mourning, with crape round their hats. The effect was mournfully grand. From ten to three o'clock yesterday, the Publick were admitted, in the same manner as on the preceding day.

At seven o'clock his Royal Highness the Duke of York entered the Chamber of Mourning, and took his seat at the head of the coffin, where he sat as Chief Mourner until the body was removed.

At eight o'clock the different parties who were to join in the procession, assembled in St. George's Hall, and were marshalled by Sir G. Naylor.

The Peers entered through Elizabeth Gate, passed over to the Gate of the King's Lodge, they then passed across the Kitchen Gate, and entered the Castle at the Eastern end of the State Apart


At a quarter before nine the coffin was brought through the different rooms, upon the bier used at the funeral of her late Majesty.

The Chapel was decorated in a style of splendour unexampled on any pre vious occasion. There was a raised platform, which extended through the South aile, up the nave to the choir; it was covered with black cloth. Upon

each side were ranged soldiers of the Foot-guards, every second man holding a wax light; behind these were sta tioned the Eton Scholars, to the number of 500 at least, all of whom were admitted by the special order of his present Majesty. In the north aile, seats, elevated above each other, were arranged for the accommodation of those persons who had received tickets of admission; those tickets were inadmissible after seven o'clock. The choir was also fitted up for the accommodation of persons of distinction; it was calculated to hold 94 persons.

The Chapel was hung with black, as well as the Knights' Stalls. The Gothic images only were left uncovered. The Altar also was hung with black, and near it were erected temporary seats for the Foreign Ministers and other stran gers of distinction who attended the procession. Amongst those Ministers were observed the Duke de San Carlos, Count Lieven, Baron Linsingen, Baron Lanseturf, &c.

The Communion Table was covered with massive gold plate, from the Chapel Royal, London, as well as from the Chapel Royal, at Windsor.

Over the Royal Mausoleum was a Canopy of rich blue velvet; on the top was a gold crown upon a cushion; upon the border was a Gothic scroll, with festoons beneath, upon each of which the Royal Arms were emblazoned.


Upon the Procession reaching the great gate of St. George's Chapel, on the South aile, the Body was received by the Dean of Windsor, and the organ immediately played, "I am the resur rection and the life, saith the Lord."— The Funeral Service composed by Dr. Croft and Mr. Purcell, was then chaunted, and the Procession entered in the following order.
