ALBERT EDWARD. Ilia Game at the Duke or Richmond's Country Seat Some Years Ago. ' It is not generally known that the prince of "Wales' Tjreach of luipitality in playincr baccarat in defiance of the express wishes of his host at Tranby Croft was by no means his' first offense against the laws of hospitality anttalso of pood taste, says the New York Recorder, Re-corder, lie acted m' very much the same fashion som years ago at Goodwood, Good-wood, the conmry seat of the;dukeof Uiohmond. Ijter since his marriage the pi uica pf Wtpics.has been in the iuibit( ft visitirutfii duke during the annual CTi io Jwopd races,' wiih the prin-coc-s aucfa-itrrpe party of royal fruests. Thcj-Stilie of Richmond, -who is now an. ftl man, is very independent of mind and pos.se-ses great force ot' character,. Iiis horror for gamhling is well known, and when, a few years apo, the prince's taste for baccarat he--came the talk of London," the duke,, on tho occasion of the heir apparent'snext vhit, toid him of his aversion to. g-im3. of hazard, and exacted a pledjr from, him that under no circurnstapces should baccarat ba played during- is stay. The duke-makc.s ant invariable rule of retiring every night punctually at ten o'elot-k, no matw who is present, and, confiding- in the promise of the prince, although it had; been somewhat reluctantly reluct-antly given, the old peer; went quietly to h;d at his usual time. On the third day of. the races, however, the duke, tvho had as usual hidden his royal pilosis g-ood night at ten o'clock, had occasion to come downstairs again; about an hour later. Iiis horror and indignation may be better understood than described at finding- the whole royal party seated aromid a table in the library and playing- baccarat for very high stakes, with the prince of Wales acting- as banker! Ho great was tho duke's wrath that he openly protested to the prince against the wa3 in which his confidence had been betrayed, the latter presenting but a sorry spectacle during this alparade, for he could find no good excuse for his extraordinary behavior. The card party was broken up in great confusion, and it was never resumed re-sumed during that or any of the subsequent subse-quent visits at Goodwood.
