On Tuesday the Prince and Princess of Wales paid a visit to Ealing, and opened the new buildings of the Princess Helena College. Princess Christian read a statement of the objects of the institution, which include the education of the orphans of officers of the Army and of clergymen as governesses and teachers, and the Prince of Wales commended it as deserving of hearty support. Her Majesty has given two scholarships; Mrs. Jeune, the honorary secretary, one; and others are in prospect.
