Her Majesty the Queen.
The New York papers 1 are publishing telegrams of a sensational nature regarding her Majesty. One of the morning journals, published on March 31st, gives a report, '' on the highest authority," that the, Queen is seriously considering the step of abdicating the' throne. The recent,reception of the Prince of Wales by tjhe German Emperor has had a great effect on the Queen, who is convinced thatf her son ought to have a chance to play the leading role in England during the rest of her life, which certainly will be aho^t. The Queen's bodily infirmities are increasing. She is becoming so bulky that her. breathing must be assisted by massage.' One strong objection her •'Majesty has to abdicating is tho contingency of being called ex-Queen. She wishes ,to assume the title of QueenRegent for the rest' of her life. A special Billi will be introduced in Parliament, it is:said, when she is.willing.,to resign the tlmjne, and the Prince of Wales will be crowned King of England • and Emperor of India. Tlie Queen will confer with tho ptaperor William at Darmstadt before leaving for England.
