In her childhood and through the early years of girlhood, she was somewhat acquainted with the trials of genteel poverty. At her father's death, her mother, the Duchess of Kent, ' and her young daughter,-Victoria- , England's future Queen, were entirely dependent upon the bounty of her uncle for their support, and for the education of the future ruler of Great Britain. This support wrare told was not liberal, but rather grudgingly bestowed, and our young princess was therefore taught to practice economy in her early life, which has doubtless proved of great benefit to her since. It certainly brought her into, closer, communion with Her the. greatest number of her subjects. sympathy was extended very many times by relieving the wants of the distressed. Those who had the privilege of her acquaintance in her childhood say she was of a very lovable disposition, kind to all, yet firm in what she conceived to be right. Victoria was proclaimed Queen of England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales, June 20, 1837, ascending the throne in her eighteenth year. She had been brought up far from the court by her widowed mother, almost isolated, shut off from royajty and their customs. Although living !ri Kensington palace, she was confined to v the rooms, grudgingly allowed them by her uncle, not. permitted the freedom of the inpalace and its surroundings. The small come allowed them compelled them to live in retirement. She was almost unknown to those even whose duty it was to announce to the new queen her accession. , The Archbishop of Canterbury and the, : Lord Guam berlain 'arrived at five in the morning at Kensington pakce, where they resided. All the gates were shut and it was with some difficulty that they obtained admittance to the presence of the princess, At awakened suddenly by their message. eleven o'clock he. council met. -- .
