The fourteenth anniversary of the birthday of Princess Victoria, their Royal Highnesses' second daughter, was duly honoured on Thursday week. The mounting of the "Queen's guard" by the 1st Battalion of the Scots Guards took place, and the band of the Grenadier Guards played in the courtyard of St. James's Palace. By the Princess's desire, Mr. Walter Pelham gave his drawing-room entertainment at Marlborough House in the afternoon; and the American Midgets, General Mite and Miss Millie Edwards, came in the evening.
