The forms and regulations adopted by our predecessuis of old, on occasions like the present, arc admirably well calculated for rendering Ibe cemeteries of the Royal Family inviolably sacred, thereby preventing private iulrnsiun, or ibe gruiiticaliun of idle curiosity. The anilinrily is received direct from Ihe King by the Lord CbMnberlam of Ibe House, hold, who communicate* Ibe lame lo llie Board of Works, by which deparl,nicnt Ibe vault was built,and tu whom ia intrusted the entire chargeuf Ihe aame,-rhaugh Ibe entrance being Within the choir of the church, it cuunut be approacheil without the requisite eccle^astical forms, aud nn urder from Ihe Dean.and Chapter: tbiia the above ceremony could nut lake place without Royal consent, and Ihe joint interference of three several departments, in all other respects uucounrcled and quite disiii>cl from eacl) other. lierhiin, Mr. Hiort, oiieof the principal olKcerH of the Board of Works, .iiid Mr. Glanvill, Surveyor of the Church, at-tende.l hy Mr. Crocker, Ihe Clerk of the Works al Westminster, anil his workmen, proceeded to lake up the marble paving and di� out the earth, which covers, at the depth of ahjol two feel, three ponderous slabs of stone, which being reinuv'f-d, discloses a circolnr staircase leading to a spacious passage, paved and arched wilh Portland stone, ou either sirle of which arc groined com part men ttr, coolaining each two cuiiius, with their urns ; aiid at the further end, under an arched recess, is placed a beanlifnl sarcophagus of black and gold marble, the lop enrirbed'.wilh uppropriale carving i:i white marble : in Ibis are deposited the coffins of King (''eorge the Second and Queen Caroline; besides these, there arc ill all thirteen other cnlEns, as before described, in. Hulling those of Ihe Prince"Bnd Princess of Wales, the I'athir and mother of our lale beloved Monarch, with Ihe Princes and Priiicejises, bis brothers anil sister^.   The vault is very spaciOns, and about nine feet in height, ami its appearance peculiarly solemn and grand.   The Royal Dukes remained within a considerable length of time, and seemed interestingly gratihrd and afTi-cted by the general solemnity of the scene.   Al eight o'clock, Mr. Banting, the Roy^l un-drriaker, attended in Dean's-yard, with two hearses anil four, grandly decorated, with Ihe requisite mourning coaches'for attendants: the two coffins, being then placed On bier.s, were brought out of the vault by men appointed by the Bo-ard of Works for tliiit purpose, and delivered lo the Lord Chamheriuin's officers, and under their direction placed iu the hearses apd conveyed la Windsor, there to be privately deposited in the Royal mmisoleum, .ou Gothic pedestals of stone, in   the same compartment  with, and on each side of the Collins of ourlale revered King and Queen, Mr. Brown, the Assistant Surveyor-General of the OlKces of the Board of Works io charge of Ihe mauloseum, attending there to receive the same.   The coffins are incomplete preservation, Ihe crimson velvet being bul III He discoloured, and the ornaments perfeclly bright ; thai of Prince Octa-viua is fonr feet four inches in length,  and thai of Prince Alfied four feet.   The above particulars will appear more iutiresting, when il is known that the Royal sepulchre at Westminster, will nevi-r again be opened. Al nine o'clock the hearses moved towards Windsor, followed by ii mourning coach, conlaining Mr. Masb, of the Lord Chamherlaiii's Office, and Mr. Banting. Tbey arrived al St. George's -Chapel aboiil two o'olock, where Ihcy were iietived hy the Dean of Windsor, niid some Gentlemen of the Board of Works.

The chambers appro-piiatSd for this ceremony are the Kiok** Audience Chamber, the Presence Chamber, and the Drawing-room, tofirether with j^Small part of the Kiog'tf Stale Bed-chamber. Tltete spleudid apartinentii, except ttie Prrseiice-chamber, have been entirely hung wilh Ruperfine black cloth, which not alone ex-(Itides sill' hghf,'but ccMiceaU tfie magnificent paintings that adorn their walls. Th6 cloth falta from the ceiling, whicli is also covered with black, in rich and taiJt'eful folds. The Presenice-chamher is that in which the body wjH be pliicedi This apartment, which i� in the 'Centre nf the^suite, is huntr with (upi-rfine por^le cloth, arranged'id the same taatefut form of'dra� pefy As in theadjoining rooni*. 'Tlie Kiii"'� Thv6i�e,>hi  chojy splendour and grandeirr of effect will be rhed upon; the inpuriift^l scene by Ihe^contrast pf"-dueed by the effulgence of wax lights, placed in profu^tinii in silver sconce!! and ca.ndelebras, arranged in VHriniis parts of ihe.chumbers. The public will be admitted to witness this solemn and iinposing ceremonial by the upper cniirt-yard, ihrough the King's Guard-chamber at the eastern eud of the state apartments; from thence into Saint George's Hall, and onwards, to the Autlience Chativber. ^Thtiy will retire afler witn^ssiii^ the ceremonial, through the apartments lit the opposite extretiiity of this range of building. The grand entrance, however, to the State rooms, is that by which the procession will move on the nighi of the funeral. It is connected, as we have already de.scribedjby the covered way with the porch of Si. George's Chapel. This entrance, which is through a vestibule supported by Ionic columns, opens to a staircase consifttiDg of three Sights, leading to the drawing rooni ; the whole covered with fine black cloth, and will on the night of the funeral be illu. minated like the Stale apartments. From this part of the building the public are excluded : it is reserved for the admission of the illustrious and distinguished personages who will compose the funeral procession, which will be here marshalled in the order it is to move. It is expected that-sach part of the public as appear iu decent mourning will be permitted to stand in the U|>per court-yard, in front of the royal aparlroenls, while the funeral passes, and also in the Lower Castle-yard, so as to have an opportunity of seeing the whole line of this melancholy pageant. Many �thousands may therefore gratify their curiosity, and manifest their sympathy. We uoJer8tand__lha^t the oottil-ai^le and organ ToFt III St. George^s Chapel will also be set apart for the accomtnoilatioji of such persons as may be enabled to obtain tickets from the Lord Chamberlain. If any thing can give additional effect to the solemn ceremony whicli is to take place on Wednesday next, at Windsor, it will be the sublime part of an Anthem, composed by Hatiilel for the funeral of Queen Caroline, iu Westminster Abbey. Tliis composition was ever highly appreciated by onr beloved ileparted Monarch, antl performed to him at Handel's Commemoration, in 1784. No one can read the divine words, without being struck linw justly they apply to such a King. � When the ear heard him, then il blessed him ; and when Ihc eye saw him, it ga've-witness of Irim. " He delivtird the poor thai cried, Ihc fatherless, an.'- him that bad none to help him. " Kindness, meekness, and comfort, were in his tongue ; if IheKe was any virtue, and if there was any praise, he Ibought 00 those things. " His body is buried in peace, bul his name livelh evermore." " / am the Resurrection," hy Dr. Croft; and " Hear my Prayer," by Kent, will likewise he performed. The gentlemen and children of the Chapel Royal are ordered to attend ; and Mr. Koy-vett has (through the Lord Cliumberlain) received his Majesty's command lo accompany and direct this part of the sacred ceremony. HIS LATE MAJE.STY'S COFFIN. The exterior coffin destined to receive the remains of our late revered Sovereign, was completed on Saturday, and numbers of respectable persons were admitted to see it, at Messrs. France and Banting's, in James-street, Hay-market, by tickets, either from the Lord Chamberlain's Office, or from Messrs. France and Banting. It is composed of Spanish mahogany, and covered with rich Genoa velvet of royal blue, a.few'illades deejjer in lint tllan garter blue. The lop or cover is divided into three coniiial'lments by double rnws of silver gilt studs. In the ctinipartinent al the head, over � rich slar of the Order of the Garier, is |)Kiced the Royal arms of England, beavitilVlly executed iii dead gold. In the centre conVpattnient is the plute, with the inncfiption. This is of silver, richly gilt, and exquisitely burnished. In tlie lower compartment, �t the feel, js the British lion, rampant regardant,- supporting a shield with the letters G.R. surrounded with tliie garter and motto of the same order, also in dead gnid. All the angles of the whole of these cotiipartments are filled up with highly burnished silver gilt pjates, engraved G. R. III. and surmounted ' by tiie HoyaJ Crown. The sides and ends of this Supeib coffin are also' divided with silver gilt sru.tls, in the same manner as the cover, fn tis to leuve three spaces on each side, and one al each end, for the haivdlea. These handle* are rtf silver, richly gJlf, of a^tnastive modern pattern and the most exquisite woirkmanship ? and each handle surrounded by a martive frame-work, in the same lasle, chiefly in ieiA gojd, but delicately relieved by burniihiug.
