    RUDENESS TO THE PRINCE. – According to the reporter of the New York Times, the Prince of Wales was treated with unexampled rudeness at Niagara Falls on Saturday, - on the Canadian side of the line, we are glad to say. The reporter writes as follows: -

    Immediately thereafter the whole party started on horseback for the Maid of the Mist. On the way thither a boor from Niagara, who was splendidly mounted, rode pell-mell through the royal cortége, then slackened his place till they had passed, and repeated his rudeness, nearly knocking the Duke off his horse, saying that he would let them see that their square-tailed nags could not throw dust in his face. They had nearly reached the boat when they were met by another man, who, wheeling his horse about, accosted the Prince, shook his hand violently, and informed him he was the finest boy on the Continent. He also smuggled himself on board the boat.
