occupies in area fourth place among the Counties of Ulster. Its total of statute acres is 611,927. In thrift and industry it has no superior. Although a large proportion of the inhabitants profit by the entensive employment of capital in the linen and other industries, there is no county in which a greater effort is made, intelligently, to secure satisfactory results from land cultivation. The varieties of scenery, which give attractiveness to Ireland as a whole, are liberally dispensed in the County Down. In the tillage and grazing districts, the farms, in great part, are composed of gentle hills, developing eccentricities which tax the resources of the ploughman, while producing charmingly picturesque effects. Down is fifty-one miles long and thirty-seven miles broad. Within this limit there are to be found mountains of stupendous height, a coast line one hundred and twenty-five miles in extent, a lough penetrating the land for 17 miles, numerous wooded, rofcky and verdurous islands, inhabited and uninhabited, Danish and other forts, caves, cairns and stone monuments of the ancients. Carlingford Lough, divides Down and Louth at the Southern end, Armagh is at its Western border, the Irish Sea at the East, and Antrim at the North, with its great town, Belfast, partly in the County Down and advancing, with giant strides, toward the interior. The population of Down, originally made up extensively from England, Wales and Scotland, continues to be recruited largely from these sources. For instance, in 1841, 877 natives of England and Wales were found in the county. Between 1841 and 1881 this number had increased to 2,301. In 1841 the natives of Scotland gave a total of 809. In 1881 the total was J )333- The natives of Leinster in 1841 stood 1,543 and in 1881 their number had increased to 2,450. Munster was represented by 323 of her natives in 1841 and had increased its force to 555 in 1881. Connaught had 265 representatives in 1841, and added 42 to this number in forty years. The total population in 1841 was 361,446, and in 1881 it was 272,107. In 1881 those who

II could read and write numbered 162,047; those who could read only numbered 45,796. English and Irish were spoken by 908 persons, and of the entire population two were compelled to confine their discourses exclusively to the Irish tongue. Down, for the convenience of local government, is divided into the baronies of Ards, upper and lower, Castlereagh, upper and lower, Dufferin, Iveagh, upper and lower, Kinelarty, Lecale, upper and lower, Mourne, and the lordship of Newry. The County town is Downpatrick. In regard to the ancient inhabitants of Down, the same differences of opinion exist that are met in the historical records of the rest of Ireland. According to some authorities, Ullagh, a Norwegian, reigned supreme in a territory including all of Down and a portion of Antrim. This was before the Christian era. The name continued to be borne by the territory or kingdom, and the Kings of Ullagh resided at Downpatrick, whither St. Patrick directed his steps in 432, converted the reigning prince, founded religious houses, and watched over their interests until his death in 493. Between the years 940 and 1111 Danish rovers busied themselves in plundering and burning the dwelling-places of the inhabitants. The British connection began in 1177. John DeCourcy, an adventurer of great prowess, arrived in Dublin that year, with the authority of Henry II. to possess himself of all the lands of Ulster that he might succeed in wresting from the native chiefs. At the head of 22 men-at-arms, and 300 soldiers, he started for Downpatrick, and after a journey of four days, without incident, he arrived at his destination. MacDunleve, the Prince of Ullagh, having had no intimation of his coming, was unprepared for defence, and sought safety in flight. DeCourcy fortified himself while MacDunleve was summoning the native chieftains to his assistance, and successfully resisted all efforts to dislodge him. He built castles in various parts of the county, and was so firmly established as a ruling baron that he considered himself powerful enough to take a hand at king-making in England. When King John succeeded his brother Richard, 1199, DeCourcy favoured the cause of Prince Arthur, Duke of Brittany, son of John's elder brother Geoffrey, and continued in revolt after the king had succeeded in purchasing the acquiescence of his foreign opponents. DeCourcy had, in the meantime, devoted himself to works of religion. MacDunleve, Prince of Ullagh, was murdered by the servants of DeCourcy in 1200, an act of treachery on their part, which DeCourcy punished by banishment. King John, determining not to allow DeCourcy to rust in his rebellion, sent Hugh and Walter De Lacy to subdue him. This they found to be attended with great

danger, and after a battle, in which they were badly worsted, Hugh De Lacy offered a reward for his capture. DeCourcy invited him to decide the issue by single combat, but De Lacy declined on the ground that as an officer of the King he could not have personal combat with a rebel. The capture of DeCourcy was secured by the aid of his own servants, who, having been bribed by De Lacy, seized him while at his devotions in the Cathedral churchyard of Downpatrick. Before accomplishing their purpose, thirteen of them were killed by DeCourcy with a cross, snatched from a grave and used as a weapon of defence. He was soon afterward (1203) sent a prisoner to England. Hugh De Lacy succeeded to the possessions of De Courcy, and became Earl of Ulster. His descendants from time to time made themselves obnoxious to the Kings of England. During the reign of Edward II. they were in revolt, and fled to Scotland to avoid capture by the forces of Lord Justice Mortimer. It was due to their representations, backed by the native Irish Chiefs, that Edward Bruce, brother of the King of Scotland, was induced to embark for Ireland in 1315. Bruce visited the County Down, and caused himself to be proclaimed King at the Market Cross of Downpatrick. Within three years from the date of his entry, he was defeated and slain near Dundalk by the English, under General De Bermingham. By marriage with the heiress of the Chief of the De Lacy's, title to the lands of Down became invested in Walter De Burgho, Earl of Ulster. His successor William, 1333, was assassinated by his own servants. The widow, with her infant child removed to England, whereupon the baronial title to the lands of Down reverted to the Kings of England. The native chieftains, who continued from the beginning to dispute possession of the county with the English, were of the septs of O'Neill, Magennis, Macartan, Slut-Kelly, and Macgilmore. In addition to their efforts in this direction, there was a disturbance occasioned by the refusal, in the sixteenth century, by the abbots of Down to acknowledge the spiritual ascendancy of Henry VIII. On that occasion Lord Grey, then Lord Deputy, marched into the Lecales, and took possession of Dundrum and seven other castles. During the war of 1641, directed by the Confederate Parliament at Kilkenny, bloody scenes were witnessed in various parts of Down. At the southern border, Narrow Water Castle was destroyed by the Confederates, and Sir Con Magennis took the town and Castle of Newry. In the war between William and James, 1689-90, the advance^ Army of King William entered near Bangor. Newry was burned by the Duke of Berwick on

15 his retreat from the forces of Duke Schomberg. William camped under the walls of Hillsborough Castle during his passage through the county. In the Rebellion of 1798, the first battle in the North was fought in Down, at Saintfield, 9th of June, and the last stand in Down was made at Ballynahinch, on the 13th of the same month. GEOLOGY, MOUNTAINS, RAILWAYS AND ROADS. |EOL0GISTS find in the County Down much to interest them. There is an extensive granite area, within which are the Mourne Mountains, the highest, Slieve Donard, 2,796 feet above the sea level. This is mainly composed of granite. On the summit there is crystallized hornblende, in the granular variety of which garnets occur. Red crystals of feldspar and pyrites are found among the stones forming the strand along the coast at the foot of the mountains. Green stone, green stone slate, feldspar, porphyry, grauwacke, and grauwacke slate, freestone and limestone are plentiful. Granite occupies the chief space, and is extensively quarried for building and other purposes. The farmers between Newcastle and Kilkeel use their spare time in preparing it for shipment. Much of their choicest pastures and tillage spots have been procured by the removal of granite boulders. Rough hewn blocks, for winter-working, are seen in temporary fences, in gaps, and against house walls along the route mentioned. The principal freestone quarries are in the Scrabo Hill, Lower Castlereagh. Many of the finest houses of the county gentry are of this stone. It is light grey, and is very effective as a dressing to brick. Limestone is confined to a few places in the county. There are quarries in the vicinity of Downpatrick, Moira, and Comber. At the Moira Quarry there is a very curious admixture of flints of various shapes. Slate quarries are numerous, but the efforts to put their products into profitable competition with those of Bangor, Wales, Killaloe, and Ormonde have not proved successful. Lead has been found in various places, notably in Conlig Hill, owned partly by Lord Dufferin and Lord Londonderry. A company has been working the lead mines on the Londonderry side, but during late years with diminished profit, owing to the effect of trade depression upon a pottery company which was its chief customer. Coal has been discovered on the shore of Strangford Lough, on the banks of the Lagan ; also near Moira, and in other parts of the county, but the seams were not of sufficient depth to make its digging a paying enterprise.

Lough a fruitless search was made for it through a bed of greenstone and sandstone, to a depth of 500 feet. Some years ago, the present Lord Kilmorey, believing that a rich silver mine existed in Leitrim Hill, near Kilkeel, had a shaft sunk 400 feet. Cornish miners were employed for the purpose. Silver was found, but the yield did not prove sufficient to cover expenses. In the matter of railway accommodation, Down compares favourably with the rest of the Irish counties. The Great Northern Company caters in a most satisfactory manner for the Southern and Western sections. It has Newry, Banbridge, Gilford, Dromore, and Hillsborough upon its lines, and goes to Ballyroney within two and a-half miles of Rathfriland. It now controls the Newry and Warrenpoint Railway ; and a tramway connects Warrenpoint with Rostrevor, a distance of about two miles. The Belfast and County Down Company has almost exhausted the room for line building in the North and South Eastern, and middle sections. It has 68 miles of road at present, reaching from Belfast to Newcastle, by way of Downpatrick, from Belfast to Donaghadee by way of Newtownards, from Belfast to Bangor by way of Holywood, and from Belfast to Ballynahinch by way of Comber and Saintfield. The longest stretch of road is to Newcastle, 38 English miles. The mission of the Company will be complete when the line has been extended round the coast from Newcastle by way of Kilkeel to Greencastle, a distance of 13 > Irish miles. There is a steam ferry boat at Greencastle, running in connection with the Newry and Greenore Railway, and thus Newry could be brought into more direct railway connection with Downpatrick. At present the journey has to be accomplished by way of Belfast. From the tourist point of view the case is different. The lack of railway facilities between Newcastle and Greencastle is the excuse for a continuance of the " long car" system, with its manifold attractions. There are first-rate hotels on the coast, and wonders of Nature which cannot be identified much less appreciated in a glance from a railway carriage window. About 2,454 miles of public roads are liable to repairs at the expense of the County Down ; of these 1,146 miles are in the North and come under the supervision of Mr. Henry Smyth, C.E., County Surveyor. The Southern Division has 1,308 miles, which come under the supervision of Mr. Bernard B. Murray, C.E., County Surveyor. The roads in the North and South are excellently well kept. It is a pleasure to travel over them even in Winter. In Summer they are charming, leading, as they do, through a country unsurpassed for the beauty and variety of its scenery.

ANCIENT GOLD ORNAMENTS, BRONZE TRUMPET, BRASS, BRONZE, AND STONE CELTS, STONE IMPLEMENTS, BELLS, CRANOGES AND WOOLLEN COSTUMES. jjNCIENT gold ornaments have been found in various parts of the County Down, some of them of considerable intrinsic value, and all possessing features of great interest for antiquarians. Specimens of massive formation were dug up near the old church of Rathmullen, not far from Killough. A torque, sumptuously decorated, and enriched with gems, was found in the parish of Bailee, within a few miles of Downpatrick, in 1834. An excavation in an earthen fort, near Loughbrickland, 1826, revealed several ornaments in fine gold. During the progress of the drainage works at Loughadian, parish of Aghaderg, nearly sixty years ago, part of a tiara was taken out of the mud. In the Royal Irish Academy (Dublin) collection of Irish Gold Ornaments, are some from the County Down. They belonged to the late Mr. A. C. Welch of Dromore. The first, a spoon-shaped object, one and eleven-sixteenths of and inch in width, and two and three-quarter inches long. It is slightly concave, and has a slender tang with triple row of small punched dots, near the edge. It weighs two pennyweights and sixteen grains. The second was a bowed object with disc terminations and copper core ; one disc gone. It was found at Edenordinary. The third is a specimen of ring money, a quarter of an inch thick and three-quarters of an inch in diameter, weighing six pennyweights and three grains. The fourth is an unclosed hoop-shaped ring, with copper core having double longitudinal flutings. The core is visible to the extent of a quarter of an inch at the centre of the circumference. It is fiveeighths of an inch in diameter, a quarter of an inch in width, two-tenths of an inch in thickness, and weighs two pennyweights and ten grains. It was found at Ballymacormack. Nothing belonging to the County Down in the Royal Irish Academy receives more notice from visitors than the immense bronze trumpet. It occupies a prominent place to the left of the Museum entrance. While cutting peat in a bog near Ardbrin, parish of Annaclone, this wonderful instrument was found by a workman in 1809. The bog had been the site of a lake which was drained about the middle of the seventeenth century. Of the five distinct kinds of trumpets found in Ireland this is considered the finest. Along the convex margin it measures eight feet five inches, and consists of two parts, each formed of very strong sheet bronze, in color yellowish red. The joining along the seam is done by means of a rivetted plate, developing the

'21 highest order of handicraft. At the opening oi the larger end the trumpet is three and a half inches wide, and five-eighths of an inch wide at the smaller end. The rivetting of the edges is also a wonder of mechanical skill. The bronze strap covering the joining on the inside has small circular headed studs rivetted on the outside. There are 638 rivets in the lower portion. In many parts of Down, brass, bronze and flint hatchets have been found. While cleaning the fosses of the great fort at Lisnagade, near Scarva, 1832, some very fine specimens in brass and stone, were thrown up; a brass cauldron and spear and arrow heads were amongst the "find."' Several brazen swords, spear heads and skeans were taken from Loughadian while it was being drained. Skeogh, in the parish of Dromore, has yielded several celts, arrow heads, and ancient weapons of stone and bronze. In 1834 a bronze celt was found at Sketrig Island, Strangford Lough. It is in the Belfast Museum, along with a bridle-bit and other articles in bronze from Down, and a stone mould for bronze celts, found near Ballynahinch in 1843. This contains moulds for four celts, the largest being six inches long and four and a-half inches broad. In the Royal Irish Academy, Dublin, there are excellent specimens from Down, including a copper celt with semilunar edge, oval socket, and wide loop ; a large sledge axe of serpentine shape, measuring 8^ inches long, 4^ inches broad at the cutting edge, and also at back ; it is indented to the width 2f inches in the centre at top and bottom. The aperture is very large, has nearly parallel polished sides, is one inch and five-eighths in the clear, and three quaiters of an inch thick. It was found near Killyleagh, and presented by the Rev. Dr. Hinks. One of the best specimens of flint spear heads is likewise in the Down collection. It is 6 | inches long and nearly two inches broad. Dean Dawson presented it to the Academy. It had previously been in the collection of Mr. Welch of Dromore. An antique chalice and a quern were found in the old graveyard, one mile to the East of Hilltown. Antique bells have turned up in various places. Among the number was one found in a bog, 1764, near Rathfriland, and a clogh-ban, or white bell, found in the old churchyard of Kilbroney, about sixty years ago. A large bell was taken from the bed of the river Lagan, near Waringstown. It was inscribed with the legend : " I belong to Donaghcloney." Stone implements from Down monopolize a fair share of attention in the Catalogue of the Royal Irish Academy. Whorls, of sandstone, chiefly used for the ends of distaffs, are also plenty. Among the pottery specimens is an ancient pitcher, 13 inches

23 high, and 32 inches in girth. It is very thin, and only weighs 5 lbs. 10 oz. It is stained a dark color on the outside, and glazed. The bottom is so globular that it cannot stand upright. It is tastefully decorated round the neck, and for some distance down the sides. The handle is different in curvature from any modern vessel of like shape. It was found in a cranoge at Lough Faughan. This cranoge, or artificial island, according to tradition, was used as a place of refuge from the O'Neills. About the year 1840 a canoe, formed from a solid piece of oak, was found in the vicinity of the island. Canoes of the same kind have been discovered elsewhere in the county; one, with a pair of oars, at Islanderry, Parish o( Dromore, and one at Meenan bog, near Loughbrickland, 1826. The weight of curious interest in the Royal Irish Academy Museum objects, outside the Gold Room, centres at the case containing specimens of antique woollen costumes. These were presented by (he Earl of Granard 84 years after their discovery in hard gravel, 4^ feet under a bog at the eastern foot of Drumkeeragh. Bones of a female, and long tresses of auburn hair, had around and upon them ten different articles of dress, each varying in color, grist of thread, and arrangement of weaving. The articles, all woollen, came into possession of the Countess of Moira, grandmother of Lord Granard. She describes some of them thus :—" A coarse camlet, probably petticoat, herringbone, finer quality, open huckaback, light fragment of gauzy woollen veil, of most delicate texture, greenish, hard, closelywoven mohair camlet, outer surface having rows of elevations, from each knob of which depended a small black tab, now reddish brown.

A very fine one stood near the grave of St. Patrick at Downpatrick. {t was removed since the restoration of the Cathedral. The remains of one are near the Episcopal Church, in the parish of Maghera. During a storm in 1704 twenty feet blown down, lay in a column unbroken ; a small portion is still left. In the cemetery of the Presbyterian Church, Drombo, there is one 40 feet high. It was repaired in 1880 by a few gentlemen interested in antiquities. About 50 years ago a stone coffin, with remains, was removed from the centre of the tower to the Belfast Museum.

25 encircled by a trench 13 feet deep. It was discovered by the father of the present sexton, John Quarrell, the third generation of sextons. At the rebuilding of the Presbyterian Church in 1882, at a cost of ,£2,500, the architect being Mr. MacKenzie, of Belfast, the trench was found again ; the sexton became interested, and has since traced it all the way round. During my visit to the cemetery in April, 1886, I found him building a vault in a portion of the trench, and examined the mass of material he had thrown out. It was composed of leal mould and bones of animals, including, it is supposed, those of the Irish wolf-dog. The county abounds in ancient earthen forts. Among the most attractive are those of Scarva, Newry, Downpatrick, Dro more, Donaghadee, Tanvalley, and Dundonald. The one in Scarva demesne is the " Dane's Cast." It is supposed to extend from Lough Neagh to the sea. Lisnagade, or " the fort of a hundred," is in the same parish, and is so called because a great many smaller forts can be seen from it. In the parish of Drumgooland there are several raths and forts. Some are perfect, and others have been partly removed for topdressing purposes. A Danish rath in the parish of Bright has the ruins of Castle Screen. Forts are also to be found in the parish of Magherally, vicinity of Banbridge, in the parish of Knockbreda, near Belfast ; Balloo, Killinchy, in the vicinity of Ballynahinch, in the parish of Comber, and several in the parish of Rathmullen. Twentyfive were traced fifty years ago in the parish of Bangor. Tanvalley fort, one of the largest and most perfect in the North of Ireland, is near the Episcopal Church, in the parish of Annaclone, between three and four miles south-east of Banbridge. In its vicinity are several of smaller proportions. Numerous forts exist in the parish of Anahilt, reached by way of Hillsborough. The largest has been brought into use for burial purposes. It had four enclosures, the whole occupying over nine acres. There is a large rath at Bankmore, and a smaller one at Ballytrustin, in the parish of Ballyphilip. There are also forts at Tara Hill, a few miles from Portaferry, at Tullylish, near Banford, at Anadorn, parish of Loughinisland, and at Clough. In the parish of Drombo there were eight forts of great size. The largest was composed of loose stones, earth, &c, and from its general outline, gave the impression that a fortified town anciently existed in the vicinity. The " Giant's Ring," also in the same parish, and within half a mile of Purdysburn, and four miles of Belfast, is a circular entrenchment enclosing about ten acres. A Cromlech in the centre rests on eight upright stones, and slopes toward the East. Mr. Thomas Gray is the tenant of the adjoining farm. The third Viscount Dungannon

27 took a deep interest in the preservation of "The Ring." He had a wall built around it in 1811, and an inscription placed at the gate earnestly recommending it to the care of his successors. At the other side of the wall there is a tablet commemorating the visit of his Viscountess, Sophia, to the "Ring," April 4th, 1856, " as well as the cordial and affectionate manner in which she was received by the adjacent tenantry on the occasion." The Ring is a favourite pic-nic ground for excursionists. The number of discovered caves in Down is quite large, but there is reason to believe that it is altogether out of proportion to the number undiscovered. Newcastle has more belonging to the former category than any other place in the county, and in connection with many of them there are stories of thrilling human interest. Near the Castle of Dromore a cave hewn out of the solid rock, was revealed in 1817. The floor was strewn with cinerary urns. A trench recently discovered at Drombo, circling a round tower, was evidently used as a place of refuge. It ran its course at a distance of fifty yards from the tower, and was thirteen feet high. A cave discovered in 1834., near Rostrevor contained cinerary urns. In the vicinity of Ardglass is the cave of Ardtole from which the townsland is named. At Dundonald, a cave has its opening at some distance from the great fort, and passes under it. A cave was discovered in the parish of Tyrella in 1832. It has three chambers, measuring respectively, 60, 45 and 24 feet in length. Stones, without mortar or cement, were used in its construction. The roof is formed with flags. There is a cave in a hill, near Killough. It is 102 feet long and is divided into four chambers, the furthest and largest being circular The smugglers' cave at Craigavad is interesting. In the townland of Finnis, parish of Dromara, there is an artificial cave, ninety-four feet long, five feet in height and six feet wide. A transept near the centre is thirty feet long. The roof consists of granite slabs. The Rev. Elgee Boyd, rector of the parish, had the mouth protected by an iron door in 1833. A cave three feet wide, five feet high and sixty-two feet long exists in the churchyard of Donaghmore. It has two chambers and a transept nearly thirty feet broad. The roof is composed of large flat stones and the entrance is marked by a curious old cross. According to the weight of good opinion, most of the cromlechs were originally covered by cairns, the stones of which, being loose and handy, were removed for building purposes. Cairns, without the colossal stones in the interior, were also numerous. The remains of many, and some still nearly perfect, are to be found throughout the county. One on Slieve Croob consists of a platform upon which there are eleven smaller cairns. Remains of a large cairn are visible on Scrabo Hill. At Anadorn, parish

29 of Loughinisland, there is a cairn which once measured sixty yards in circumference. The largest one is at Drumiller, in the parish of Ahaderg. Before it proved a temptation to avoid the laborious work of quarrying, it was 60 feet high and 226 feet in circumference. Cromlechs, known also as Druidical altars, nearly all possessing similar features, are found in many of the parishes. The great stone of one in Ballygraphan, near Comber, measures nineteen feet by six, and is four feet in thickness. One known as the " Kempe stone," is in a field at Greengraves, near Dundonald. There is also one in the demesne of Mountstewart, Newtownards. Near Kilkeel is one, the table of which is nine feet long, and eight feet six inches wide. There is one near the shore of Loughinisland Lake, and another on the slope of the hill, East of Causeway Water. In the parish of Clonduff, about twomilesfromHilltown,is the cromlech known as "Cloughmore," The table stone, a block of granite, is about 50 tons weight and is elevated to a height of about fourteen feet. It was once circled by large stones. Near the ruins of Knock Church, in the parish of Knockbreda, are the remains of a cromlech Several are in the parish of Newry. At Legananny, in the parish of Drumgooland, there is a large one, the table of which is supported by three upright stones of great size. One at Slidderyford, near Dundrum, is seen from the railway train. In the neighborhood on a hill called Slieve-na-boil-trough, is another with a large table stone, coffin-shaped. The vicinity of Downpatrick, in this respect, is rich in its possessions. In the parish of Bailee, close to Slieve-na-griddle, there is a table stone eleven feet long and nine feet broad. In the district of Castlewellan there is a cromlech which excites a great deal of curiosity. But by reason of its surroundings, that in the " Giant's Ring," is best known and receives the largest number of visitors. Stone circles of a very interesting nature are found in two places near Downpatrick, and there is one in the vicinity of Portaferry. Standing stones are also very numerous m Down. Their purpose, it is supposed, was to mark the place in which human remains had been deposited in cinerary urns. A great number of these urns have been dug up in the county. Comber has given several to the Belfast Museum. Excavations between the upright stones of Cromlechs have yielded many perfect specimens. Excavations in the forts and explorations in the caves have been similarly fruitful. The stone crosses in the County Down are comparatively few. Chief amongst them is one which now occupies a secure position in the gable of the Drumgooland Parish school-house. It is

sculptured in low relief, is between eight and nine feet high, and was removed from the churchyard in the vicinity for greater safety. There is a cross in the old churchyard of Kilbroney, and one which marks the site of a cave in the churchyard in Donaghmore. There is a very fine granite sculptured cross at Dromore, which has been rescued this year from a position of neglect in company with the town stocks. Some excellent examples of ancient sepulchral slabs, sculptured, are found at Movilla Cemetery, near Newtownards; Kilclief, near Strangford; Rubane, near Kircubbin; Grey Abbey ; Saul, near Downpatrick ; Killyleagh; Dunsford, near Ardglass; Ballynoe, Parish of Bright, near Downpatrick ; and at Maghera, near Newcastle. One of two found at Ballymaclean, parish of Bangor, is in the Belfast Museum with one found near the old church of Bangor, and presented in 1823. A perfect specimen was dug up some time ago in'the old cemetery at Holywood, and is treasured in the church ruin. Among the abbeys which once flourished in the County Down the best known were those which were founded and presided over by St. Patrick, at Downpatrick and at Saul, where he died in 493. There were two at Comber, one founded by St. Patrick, and the second, in 1201, by Brien Catha Dun, progenitor of the O'Neill's of Clandeboye. Inch, near Downpatrick, founded by John DeCourcy; Erynagh, near Downpatrick, founded by Magnell, King of Ulster, and destroyed by DeCourcy, 1177 ; Bangor, founded in 555 by St. Comgall; Ballyphilip, near Portaferry; Dromore, founded by St. Colman ; Kilclief, presided over by disciples of St. Patrick; St. Eugene and St. Neill ; Newry, founded by M'Loughlin, King of Ireland, 1157; Newtownards, founded, 1244, by Walter de Burgho ; Movilla, near Newtownards, founded by St. Finian, 550 ; Parish of Slanes, near Portaferry ; Tullyhoe, parish of Tullylish ; Ardquin, in the Ards ; parish of Drombo; Grey Abbey, founded in 1199, by Africa, wife of DeCourcy, and daughter of King Godfred of Man ; and St. Andrew de Stokes, better known as the Black Abbey, founded by DeCourcy about the year 1180. This stood within two miles of Grey Abbey, but of the foundations nothing remains. The last fragment of wall was removed by a fanner, renting the adjoining lands, about twenty years ago. In the ruins of Grey Abbey a sepulchral slab is to be seen which belonged originally to the Black Abbey. It is seven feet long, has an ornamental moulding carried round the edge, and a floriated cross, with eight points. John DeCourcy and his followers built many castles in the County Down to defend their possessions from the native chieftains. Twenty-seven commanded Strangford Lough, and

33 a number of them still continue to heighten the picturesque features of the shore line. Raymond Savage erected one at Ardkeen, which successfully resisted the attacks of Shane O'Neill in 1567. There are Jordan's, King's, Cowed, Margaret, and Horn Castles at Ardglass. The most interesting is that in which Simon Jordan successfully defended himself for three years, until relieved, against the followers of Tyrone, 1611. Con O'Neill's Castle occupied a fort on one of the Castlereagh hills, near Belfast, and was an object of such tender solicitude to a few gentlemen of antiquarian tastes that they contracted with a mason to build a wall around it. When the work came to be paid for it was found that the mason had quarried the ruins to build the wall. The site of the first castle built by DeCourcy is now occupied by the Post-office at Downpatrick. The ruins of Dundrum Castle, built by DeCourcy for Knights Templar, and held by them until 1313, are extensive and attractive. Greencastle, built by Walter De Burgho, stands on the verge of Carlingford Lough. It played a part of more or less importance in nearly all the efforts of the English to maintain their supremacy in Ulster. The Irish destroyed it in 1343, and it was rebuilt soon afterward. Edward Bruce took it in 1315, and Cromwell caused it to be dismantled in 1645. The surrounding scenery is incomparably beautiful. A ferryboat runs to Greencastle twice a day from Greenore, at the opposite side of the lough. Kilclief Castle, which is about two miles south of Strangford, was at one time the Palace of the Bishops of Down. MacCartan's Castle stood on Castle Hill, in the parish of Loughinisland. The head of the sept lost his possessions in the district through having joined the rebellion of the Earl of Tyrone. The Castle of Newry was built by DeCourcy, destroyed and rebuilt by Marshal Bagnal. Narrow Water Castle was originally built by Hugh De Lacy in 1212. It was destroyed in 1641, and rebuilt by the Duke of Ormonde in 1663. Portaferry Castle, the remains of which still exist, was built by the founder of the Savage family, a follower of DeCourcy. Seafin Castle, on the Bann, in the parish of Drumballyroney, was held by the Magennises during many generations, and was one of their chief places of defence and refuge. The castles at Strangford are, Audley's castle, on a rock opposite Portaferry, Castle Ward ; one on the creek further down; and one at the quay. They were erected by DeCourcy's followers. There are remains of Screen Castle, parish of Bright ; Clough Castle, on a Danish fort; Quoile and Walshestown castles, near Downpatrick ; and Gilford Castle. A castle was erected at Newtownards, by the O'Neills, in the fourteenth century. The ancient castle at Killyleagh has been restored by the Hamilton

family. A portion of Dromore castle stands ; it was built for the protection of Bishop Tod. Hillsborough castle, built in the reign of Charles I., is in fair preservation. Three walls of Rathfriland castle remain ; it was the principal seat of the Magennises. Bright castle occupied a strong position overlooking Killough. There are remains of it. Ruins of Kirkistown, Sketrick, Rostrevor, and Mahee castles, are still in evidence. The castle built by Felix Magennis, at Newcastle, has been taken down. There are some remains of a castle built by DeCourcy on the shore of Quintin Bay in 1184. There are foundations of Castles at Scarva, and Lisnagade in the same parish. Not a vestige of Moira castle remains. The ancient castle of the Whites occupied Killinchy fort, and the site of the castle, built by Sir Marmaduke Whitchurch, on Loughbrickland, in 1585, was occupied by a dwelling-house in 1812. FARMING, FARMING SOCIETIES, MARKETS AND FAIRS. jjARMINGr in the County Down, as I already intimated in the opening chapter, is conducted in a manner highly creditable to those engaged in it. Tillage monopolizes a large part of the energies of the farmers, and has been profitable in seasons when good prices prevailed in the markets. The total extent under crops in 1884 was 279,668 statute acres, and in 1885 it was 284,070, showing an increase of 4,402 acres, the chief contributory to which was flax. In this item alone (22,284 acres) there was an increase of 3,087 acres. Down is now by far the largest flax-growing county in Ulster. When the new system of scutching has been brought into general use, the area under the crop is likely to be doubled in a few years. It is claimed for this system that through it there will be an increase of about 40 per cent, in the amount of good rough fibre taken from the straw. Under the old system a large part was turned into tow in the process of scutching, with a proportionate reduction in the farmer's profits. The new invention releases the fibre from the straw without turning any part of it into tow. Wheat, as a crop, is decreasing in extent. Between 1884 and 1885 the decrease was 499 acres. Oats, potatoes, turnips, and carrots, are steady crops. Down is the largest potato-growing county in Ulster. In 1885 it had 48,417 acres, an increase of three acres over the previous year. The shipment of potatoes to England and Scotland has been extensively carried on for years ; in fact, potatoes are the principal freight sent from the smaller ports. The total number of acres

under tillage in 1885 was 215,079, an increase of 1,749 o v e r the previous year. The number of acres under meadow and clover in 1885 was 68,991, an increase of 2,653 over the previous year. Very nearly half the total area of the county was under crops in 1885. • The number of horses of all ages, in 1885 was 31,301, an increase of 357 over the figures of the previous year. There was an increase of 24 in the number of mules (119) and of 285 in the number of donkeys (1,483), an increase of 2,916 in the number of milch cows (54,183) and'4,666 in the total number of cattle (149,553), an increase of 7,815 in the total number of sheep (58,203), of 220 in the number of pigs (48,612) and an increase of 12,456 in the number of poultry (625,477). A considerable amount of butter is made, and there is a strong disposition manifested among the farmers, particularly in the grazing districts, to take advantage of the best dairying methods. During the present year (1886) a Creamery Company has been established in the vicinity of Banbridge. Its operations are being watched with keen interest. Upon the results will depend the action in a like direction to be taken in other parts of the county. Farming societies have done good work in the County Down. The North-East Society, which now makes head-quarters at Belfast, sprang from a ploughing society, the first in the North of Ireland, established at Bangor in 1816, through the efforts of J. R. Cleland. Many of the members of this society are residents of the County Down, as are likewise many of the exhibitors. Mr. G. Gerald Bingham is secretary, and the office is at the Ulster Buildings, Belfast. The Killyleagh, Killinchy, Kilmood and Tullynakill Farming Society ranks next in age to the Bangor Ploughing Society. It was established in 1818, and was organized asaploughing society. The chief founders of it were Robert Johnstone, Ballywoolen House, and Thomas Taylor, The Fort, both gentlemen of energy and intelligence. The annual shows of the Society are held alternately at Killyleagh and Killinchy. The President is the Earl of Dufferin, the Hon. Secretary, James Gourley, J. P., Derryboy Cottage, Killyleagh, and the Treasurer, John Ringland ofCluntagh, Killyleagh. Subscriptions are regulated according to the size of the farms. Members holding 40 acres and upward 10s. annually, under 40 acres, 5s. In 1885 the prizes in the cattle department aggregated ,£32 9s. 6d. Mr. Gourley, the efficient and courteous honorary secretary, has found time, in addition to his other duties, to collect a great deal of material concerning the history of the Eastern part of the county. The Lecale Fanning Society was established in 1844 and holds its annual show at Downpatrick. The officers are J. R.

County Down is well supplied with markets and fairs. Great improvements have been made in the principal market places, particularly in those of Newry, Banbridge and Dromore. TRADE, MANUFACTURES AND FISHERIES. IjRADE in the County Down is generally conducted so as to produce healthy activity and prevent recklessness. The business people are cautious, prudent and, as a rule, exceedingly hardworking, in some of the towns and villages keeping their shops open until after nine o'clock at night. The competition is very keen in nearly every branch of trade, with the result that the consumers get the worth of their money everywhere. Manufacturing enterprises, other than [those associated with linen, although not numerous, are of considerable importance. Tanning is confined to Newry. There are seven tanneries in that town operated by different owners. Two iron foundries, two mineral water factories, one salt factory, and five flour mills are also at Newry. Three of the flour mills rank among the largest in Ireland, and have the improved machinery. Cabinet furniture manufacture is on a respectable footing. There are mineral water factories at Banbridge, Newtownards, Downpatrick. Comber, and Castlewellan, two distilleries at Comber, under one


Telegraphic Address—"Telegraph," Newry.
PTIHIS 6ld-established tri-weekly is one of the best provincial papers I published, and is read by an ever-increasing circle of subscribers. The reason of its growing popularity is to be found in the fact that it is essentially a. newspaper. While its primary object is the exposition and vindication of the principles of Conservatism, which it was founded to carry out, the utmost pains are taken to report all matters of public interest in the fullest and most impartial manner. As a result, the Neivry Telegraph is purchased by every section of the community alike, and thus it" forms an advertising medium of exceptional value. It is the county paper (in which all Grand Jury and other public advertisements are published) for the County of Down. It circulates largely in the principal towns and adjoining districts of Down, Armagh' and Louth, particularly amongst the Nobility and Gentry, as well as the Professional, Commercial, and Agricultural Classes, as it does also in the Counties of Antrim, Cavan, Derry, Dublin and Fermanagh. It has indisputably the largest circulation of any provincial paper in the North of Ireland, and from its long-standing before the public (since 1812) must be looked upon as the most influential Journal between Belfast and Dublin. A notable feature in the Paper is the supply of Telegraphic News, which includes items from all parts of the three Kingdoms up to an advanced hour on the mornings of Publication.

management, a potato and soup canning factory at Portaferry, " brickworks at Newry, and brick-making on a smaller scale is carried on in various parts of the county. There are extensive lime works at Moira and Bangor, and steam stone polishing works at Newry. At Newtownards there are four factories devoted to the knitting and weaving of woollen yarns. One gives attention to skirtings, shirtings, and shawls, the second to bed-quilts, the third to hosiery and petticoats, and the fourth to hosiery, jerseys, and Cardigan jackets. Rope-making is done at Newry and Banbridge. Stone quarrying is an important industry, and is carried on extensively in the vicinity of Newry, Newtownards, Castlewellan and elsewhere. Linen is the staple manufacture of the county. Newry has five mills, three engaged in spinning, and two in weaving. The river Bann, from Banbridge to Gilford, has six weaving factories, two immense thread mills, six bleacheries, and two beetling mills. Newtownards has two weaving factories and one bleachery; Castlewellan one spinning mill, one weaving factory, and a bleachery; Donacloney has a weaving factory and bleach works ; Ravarnet has one weaving factory ; Hillsborough has one, there is one close to the Antrim border at Lisburn, and one at Bloomfield. Killyleagh has two spinning mills, Comber one, Drumaness one, Sprucefield one, and Bloomfield one. The Lambeg Bleach Works of the Messrs. Richardson are in Down and Antrim, near Lisburn. There is a small bleachery on the Down side of the Lagan at Lisburn. There are bleacheries at Dromore and Kilbroney, near Rostrevor, dyeing and finishing works atForestbrook, near Rostrevor, and a beetling mill at Newtown, near Rostrevor. Tapes are manufactured at Newtownards, and twines at Lisburn, in Down. At Newtownards there are printing works in connection with a handkerchief factory, and a shirt and collar factory. Newry has an apron and handkerchief hemstitching factory. Banbridge has a hemstitching factory, and there are four of a similar kind at Dromore. Two factories at Dromore are devoted to the weaving of linen cambric handkerchiefs. Handloom linen weavers may still be counted by the thousand in Down. With a few exceptions every district in the county has a number of them. They receive the yarns from agents in the rural districts on certain days, and weave them with looms set up in their own cottages. At Newtownards and vicinity it is estimated that there are at least 800. In the vicinity of Dromore several hundred work for firms making a special feature of handloom linens. Embroidering is a branch of industry which gives employment to thousands of women in every part of the county. Down has been long famous for work of this kind, and maintains its reputation in spite of the fact

43 that there are few schools in the connty having special departments for teaching the art. The finest workers are among the middle-aged married women. In this summary of the industries I have taken no account of Ballymacarrett, for although in the County Down, it is a part of the Borough of Belfast, and will be treated under the head of Belfast in my book of the County Antrim. Ballymacarrett is a hive of manufacturing enterprise. Deep sea fishing is carried on to a considerable extent by the inhabitants of the villages along the Down coast. Ardglass is the chief point of interest in connection with this industry. In the herring fishing season as many as 500 luggers discharge there. Steamboats attend and carry the fish every day to Holyhead. Twenty-five of the luggers are owned by residentsKilkeel ranks next to Ardglass. It is not uncommon to see a fishing fleet of 300 sail there in summer. It has a good safe harbor Kilkeel has 30 sail and 35 row boats engaged in fishing, doughy has 19 sailing luggers and 30 row boats ; Kircubbin has an interest in 15 luggers, and Portavogie, which is about three miles from there, has 40. This place has a natural harbor, protected by high rocks, in which there are thirteen feet of water at low tide. Annalong has 15 luggers and about 20 row boats, Bally water 8 or 9 row boats, Bangor about 18 cutter-rigged and three or four smaller boats, Portaferry has 8 luggers and about 20 row boats, Newcastle, 50 row boats, and Killough has about 50 men who fish in sailing yawls and row boats in summer,'and ship as sailors during the winter. Ail the luggers own ed in the County Down go to Kinsale for the mackerel fishing in spring. HUNTING, COURSING, AND RACING. flUNTING continues to enjoy its old-time popularity in Down. Several packs of hounds and harriers are maintained, and game being plenty, nothing interferes to spoil sport. The packs include the County Down Stag Hounds, Newry Harriers, Down Harriers, and Lecale Harriers. Capt. Ker is Master of the stag hounds, which number about 35 couples. He keeps the kennels at his own residence, Montalto, Ballynahmch. The pack was established by him seven years ago; Saunders was first huntsman. Captain Ker hunts the hounds at present. The hunting district comprises the whole county. There are usually three meetings each week in the season—Tuesday, in the Banbridge district; Thursday, Downpatrick ; and Saturday, Belfast. The stags are kept in the deer-park at Montalto. Members of the hunt number over 120. They have an annual dinner at Belfast. The subscription is ten

I! iTlfti





guineas. Outsiders following the hounds are supposed to pay ten shillings field-money at each meet. Mr. T. G. Gordon, J.P., Delamont, Killyleagh, is treasurer. The average attendance ot members during the season is about 40. Mr. Thomas D Arcy Hoey, J.P., Dromalane House, Newry, is the present Master ot the Newry Harriers, having succeeded Mr.Henry Thomson, ).F., Altnaveigh House, Newry, in 1869. The pack had been previously, for many years, hunted by the late Mr. John Gordon, , of Sheepbridge, one of the most prominent of County Down sportsmen. Mr. Hoey also hunts the pack himself, and has done so since his advent to the mastership. The hunting district consists of a circuit of about seven miles, between Lougnbrickland and Newry. Few of the farmers ride to hounds, but all are favorable to the sport, and help to preserve the haresThe minimum subscription toward the maintenance of the pack is £5 ; field-money for non-members, 2s. 6d. The kennels are at Drumcashlone, within an eighth of a mile of Newry. lne pack consists of twenty couples, and the average height is twenty '"The'North Down Harriers, originally known as the Dufferin Hunt, consist of 20 couples of an average height of 21 inches. Mr I. B. Houston, D.L., Orangefield, is Master, and Mr. Richard Baxter, Belfast, secretary and treasurer. The kennels are at Ballynichol near Comber, Sam Burgess is huntsman. ine Master subscribes ,£20, and the other members £10 each. INO field money is collected. A circuit of between four and five miles around Comber, constitutes the hunting country. Col Forde, D.L., Seaforde, is Master of the Lecale Harriers, the oldest pack in the county. It was established by the Forde family. The district includes the country from Annsborough to Ardglass, and from Ballynahinch to St. Johns Point Mr. Charles Murland, J.P., is treasurer; Rudw ck has been huntsman for twenty-four years. His son is first whip The pack consists of twenty-eight couples with an average heigh? of twenty-four inches. Kennels are Kept near Cough A kindly interest is manifested in the sport by the farmers, who help to keep an abundant supply of hares. Mi.Henry Thomson, J.P., has a private pack of harriers, cons'Stmg of thirteen couples, average height seventeen inches he has had it since 1878. The kennels are at Newry.but although he hunts occasionally in Down, his grounds! e chiefly in Armagh. The Carr.ckblacker Harriers twenty couples, a County Armagh pack, hunt >n Down three days a week, in the vicinities of Gilford and Banbndge Mr. John B. Atkinson, Portadown, is Master.

47 Downpatrick, and meets there on the second Tuesday, of November, second Tuesday of January and second Tuesday of February in each year. Its Club House is called " The County Rooms." Between 80 and 90 members are at present in good standing. The entrance fee is 20 guineas, and the annual subscription 5 guineas. Election is by bollot, at which at least 15 members must be present. One black bean excludes. Major T. J. D. Forde, Drumcerra, Annerly, is secretary and treasurer. Presidents hold office for only two nights. There are four dinners at each meeting, at which none but members can be present. Two days of the meeting are spent with the Lecale Harriers, and two with the Stag Hounds. The morning costume of members includes trousers or breeches, drab coat, with silver buttons, bearing the arms of the club, and tall silk hats. Evening full dress consists of ordinary black trousers, black vest and swallowtail coat with scarlet facings and gold buttons, bearing the club arms. Mr. Robert Moorhead has been steward of the club since 1857. Coursing is also a favourite sport in Down. This year local meetings have been successfully held at Banbridge, Rathfriland, and Moneyreagh, near Comber. The great meeting of the county is held annually at Mourne Park, near Kilkeel, by the Mourne Park Coursing Club. Lord Kilmorey established the meeting about six years ago, and managed it until 1&85. He • gave the grounds without charge, and spent money freely in improvements. Hares t were imported at his expense to keep up the stock. In 1884-5 n e hares showed more stamina. The meetings hitherto have been held annually, in September, and continued for three days in succession. In 1885 there was a departure from the plan of the foundation. Lord Kilmorey now receives .£200 a year rent for the ground. Mr. John Annett, jun. is secretary and treasurer. The club has upward of 100 members who pay an annual subscription of £l each. Lord Kilmorey is president and invariably presides at the draw, which takes place at Rostrevor. The attendance averages from 300 to 400 on each day of the meeting. Stakes are usually from £4 los. to £6 10s. each. The range is from 32 to 64 dogs. At the meeting in 1885 the gate money amounted to £120. The club is largely supported by English and Scotch coursers. Racing in the county is confined to the Maze and Downpatrick courses. That is to say, what may be called the regular racing. These races were established under a charter to the Down Corporation of Horse-breeders, by James II. William III. founded what is now known as " The Queen's Plate," dating his patent at Hillsborough Castle, June 21st, 1690. The Maze is an excellent course, flat and steeplechase, two miles round.

" Queen's Plates " are given, and the conditions are less circumscribed than those in connection with the Downpatrick meeting. Mr. T. G. Gordon, of Killyleagh is Hon. Registrar. The racjs are usually held in July of each year, for two days. In " the good old times " they were held each day for a week, alternating with Downpatrick every second year. The last meeling at Downpatrick took place on the 31st of March and 1st of April, in conditions more open than they have hitherto been. The stakes on the first day consisted of the Ulster cup, value 30 sovs., with 30 sovs. added, the Downshire stakes, a handicap of 100 sovs., added to 3 sovs. each, pony plate of 21 sovs., Dufferin plate of 80 sovs. for hunters, Stag hunters cup, value 30 sovs., Farmers challenge cup value 45 sovs., presented by Mr. John M'Connell, J.P., with 30 sovs. added, and the Ballydugan plate of 40 sovs. On the second day they included the County Down Hunts' cup, value 30 sovs., presented by Mr. John Mulholland, D.L., with 30 sovs. added, for County Down hunters, Lecale plate of 80 sovs., Iveagh plate of 80 sovs. for hunters, Montalto cup, value 30 sovs., Downpatrick plate of 40 sovs., Castlereagh plate, value 30 sovs., and the Railway plate of 35 sovs., for hunters. Mr. Charles Murland, J.P., Ardnabannon, Castlewellan, was treasurer, and Mr. Wm. Hutton, Ligamaddy House, Downpatrick, hon secretary. A special feature of the Downpatrick races is the large number of county hunters brought out. The course, one mile and a quarter round, is a first-rate one. ANGLING, BOATING, SAILING, RIFLE SHOOTING, LAWN TENNIS, CRICKET, FOOT-BALL, LA-CROSSE, CURLING AND CYCLING. JJOWN is fairly well off in the matter of streams and ponds that are stocked with trout. The flax water has done injury to some of the best, but enough remain in good condition to satisfy those who have time and inclination to fish them. Newry anglers who are particular to keep to the County Down can be sure of good sport at Hilltown. The Bann, which passes there, has excellent brown trout. At a distance of two miles, Irish, from Rathfriland, in the same river, the fish are first-rate. Warrenpoint has plenty of trout in its reservoir, and the sanitary authorities issue licenses to anglers at 10s. each. Kilkeel has, within a distance of three miles, the Ballykeel River, the Whitewater and the Caseywater, all of which are right good for trout and may be fished without hindrance. These streams are also accessible from Newcastle. The Shimnah joins the sea at the latter named place and for a

short distance toward Tollymore Park, has trout. Tn the vicinity of Dundrum the Moneycaragh River is good for trout. Ballylough Lake, less than a mile from Castlewellan, has plenty of trout. Mr. Charles Murland, J.P., the owner, partly preserves it, but he is too hospitable to resist the desire of any well disposed angler who may wish to wet a line in it. Lord Annesley has two heavily stocked trout lakes at Castlewellan. At the junction of the Ballynahinch river and the Glasswater, within a short distance of Crossgar, there is good trout fishing to be had. Ballynahinch river is nearly all fair. Between Dromara and Dromore the Lagan is good for trout. Near Moira some very large trout were landed last season. Boating in the best amateur style is done by the Rowing Club at Newry. This club has given a good account of itself in " all comers " contests, and some of its men have won valuable prizes. It holds an annual regatta at Newry in conjunction with the Athletic sports. There are sailing clubs at Donaghadee and Bangor, and Killyleagh holds an annual regatta in which sail and rowboats compete. Two clubs keep up the prestige of the county for rifle-shooting. One has its head-quarters at Newtownards and the other at Dundrum. Lawn tennis has been gaining ground in popular estimation. There are several flourishing clubs in the county. Newry has a club exclusively devoted to tennis, and the members of the Newry Rowing Club divide their energies between the river and the tennis court. There are clubs at Holywood, Belmont, Kilkeel, Downpatrick, Dromore and Banbridge. Cricket holds its own against all the new-fangled attractions. Newry has two clubs, Banbridge two, Killyleagh two, and each of the following places one each : Comber, one of the best in the county, Downpatrick, first-rate, Holywood, Belmont, Dromore, Hillsborough, Waringstown, Dundrum and Clough. Foot-ball clubs exist at Bangor (2), Newtownards, Newry, Banbridge (2), Crossgar, Ballynahinch and Donaghadee. Lacrosse, as a game, received a footing in the county in 1872. Newtownards was the first town in Ireland to succumb to its allurements. Clubs have since been established at Bangor, Bloomfield, and recently at Newry. Curling is done at one place only in the county, where a club was established about eight years ago by Mr. Wm. Sibbaid Johnston, J.P. Further particulars will be found under the head of Newtownards. There are Cycling clubs at Newry, Newtownards and Bangor.

NEWRY. (Population, 15,590, in 1881.) ', EWRY occupies a position on the border line of Down and Armagh, and is an important trading centre for both counties. Its strong attractions, from the commercial point of view, were originally manifested when inland water ways were of more consequence than at present. Lough Neagh is connected with the sea by a navigation system which broadens in the Clanrye Valley, gives Newry a floating dock of respectable proportions, and permits the entrance of vessels of large tonnage from Carlingford Lough, five miles distant. In the matter of railway communication with the outer world, Newry is very well served. The Great Northern road, between Belfast and Dublin, passes at Goragh Wood, Co. Armagh, where it is met by a single track from town, three and a half miles in length. Belfast is 44J miles by this route. There is a line between Newry and Armagh, which has proved of considerable advantage. A railway to Greenore provides daily communication with England via Holyhead. There is a five mile line to Warrenpoint, and an electric tramway to Bessbrook, opened for traffic in 1885. This net-work of railways has done wonders for the Newry markets, and has given a great stimulus to the general business. The manufacturing enterprises in good times would compare favourably with those of the best towns of Ireland. Three extensive flax spining mills, two linen weaving factories, and an apron factory, give large employment to girls. There arefiveflour mills, three of them possessing immense power. Two iron foundries of longestablished reputation, two mineral factories, salt works, stone polishing mills, seven tanneries, cabinet furniture manufacture, and coach-building are amongthe leading industries. Minor branches are very numerous. Granite quarries, of high repute, exist in the vicinity, and are worked energetically, the products forming a valuable addition to the exports. A stranger entering Newry at the Edward Street railway station need not walk far to become favorably impressed. The principal portion of the town lies at the foot of a high hill on the County Down side. Hill Street, the longest and broadest thoroughfare, is occupied by well-built warehouses. Margaret and Marcus Squares agreeably break the monotony of its course, the former opening the way to Water and North, both first-rate business streets, from Monaghan street, at the opposite side of the river.

Marcus Square connects the Mall with Hill Street, and Mill Street, also an intersection, connects King Street with Castle Market and High Streets. On the Armagh side are Sugar Island, Canal Street, Monaghan Street, Catherine Street, Needham Street, Queen Street, King Street, Bridge Street, Edward Street, Corry Square, Merchants' and Buttercrane Quays, and Albert Basin, which contains the shipping. The canal and river run through the town for the greater part, side by side, and are crossed by many bridges. AND SINCE THE ARRIVAL OF THE ENGLISH. | H E popular idea associates St. Patrick with the planting of the yews at Newry, and as reference is often made to the fact in history, it is not all improbable that he may have marked in this way what he regarded as a good site for a religious foundation. St. Patrick died at Saul, near Downpatrick, in 493, and there is no evidence that his wishes, if he ever expressed any, were carried into effect until 1140. In that year Saint Malachi established an abbey for monks of the Cistercian Order, and in was richly endowed by MacLoughlin, King of Ireland. In the Charter, which is still preserved, the place is referred to variously as " the pass at the head of the strand," and as " having the flourishing head of a yew tree." The name Newry has been evolved by a singular process from these and other references. The Abbey was dedicated to the Virgin, St. Patrick and St. Benedict, by MacLoughlin, with the intimation that those who had large landed possessions might add to the endowment. The Lordship of Newry, Newry parish in Armagh, the Barony of Mourne, Omeath and Cooley, in Louth, and lands in other places, were eventually included under the jurisdiction of the Abbot of Newry. In 1162 the abbey, monks' library and the famous yew trees were destroyed by fire. Soon afterward the abbey was rebuilt, and the future town began to grow. John DeCourcy, Earl of Ulster, fought with the Irish in the Clanrye Valley, 1178. Many of his men were drowned, a circumstance which impelled him to erect a castle at the passage of the river, at Mill Street. O'Donnel More marched to Newry, 1236, and received the submission of the chiefs of Ullagh. In 1237 Hugh DeLacy, successor of DeCourcy in the Earldom of Ulster, confirmed the charter of MacLoughlin. to the Abbey of Newry, and gave to the abbot the dignity of a mitred prelate. The next item of interest in the history of the town, was its burning by Teig O'Conor and Teig McTuathal. Maurice Fitzgerald erected BEFORE

O'Neill, in I 5 9 8. Bagnal was slain. His sister had then been dead for some time Arthur Bagnal, a minor, succeeded to the estates. In 1600 Lord Mountjoy came to Newry at the head of an arrny, and two years later O'Neill submitted. Newry had 300.houses in 1612. A patent granted by James I in ^ I S , conferred upon Arthur Bagnal, powers equal to those of an abbot. He exercised episcopal jurisdiction, and used the monastic seal. n the same year a charter of incorporation was given to the town It provided for the appointment of a provost and twelve frePe burgesses, to hold o X e for life, the successors to be appointed by the survivors. The Provost was to be elected annually, and the borough was to return two Members oParl.a ment The first Provost was Anthony Holmes and the_ first Members of Parliament elected were Captain (afterward Sir Arthur) Bassett, and John Leigh. Newry was an assize town in i 6 n Arthur Bagnal, who was first named on the burgessrol died in 1637. He was succeeded by his son, Nicholas, a boy efght yearsold. In the war of .64...Sir Con. Magennis entered Newry and was well received by the people. He died while the wa/was in progress. Newry Castle was eventually surrendered to the English, who shot and hanged sixty ot the townspeople.

charter created by James II. was illegal, but unlike other Irish towns, Newrv does not appear to have reorganized under the old charter. Nicholas Bagnal died in 1712, and having no male heir he left the property to Edward Baylie and William Nedham. The latter received the portion which included Newry. ine remains of the Abbey were extensive, and had to be removed in 1788 to facilitate works of public improvement. Newry did not join in the Rebellion of 1798, but many of its residentsl lwere imprisoned on suspicion of being favourable to it. W l l ? m Nedham died in 1806. His heir was a nephew, but as he did not continue on good terms with him, the property was lett to Robert Nedham, Viscount Kilmorey, of Shavmgton, in bnropshire. The Viscount was not a kinsman, was only in part a namesake, and had not even an acquaintance with his benefactor. THE NEWRY NAVIGATION SYSTEM, TOWN GOVERNMENT, WATER SUPPLY, MARKETS, AND GAS. 1EWRY had made so much progress after the advent of William that it eclipsed Carlingford. The Customs head-quarters were removed to it from there in 1720. 1 Collieries were then at work in the County 1 yrone, and a proposition was made to build a canal from Newry to Lough Neagh. An Act was passed in 1730 for this purpose, and the canal was opened in 1741- By this move the trade of the port was greatly benefited. In 1755 Parliament appropriated £4,000 for the improvement of the river, which was then so shallow that vessels of twenty tons could not reach the quays in safety. By various Acts of Parliament the powers for the management of the canal were changed, until it came a.last to be understood that the work was only to be success* y^accomDlished bv placing it in the hands of a locally constituted oody In i82y9,Pby vfrtue of an Act of Parliament, the control was given to the Newry Navigation Company consisting of the MarqguUof Downshire! Earl of Kilmorey andott,ers named and of the subscribers to the stock. The gift.of_the water way from Carlingford Lough via Newry and Portadown to Lough Neagh, about 36 miles, was made on condition that they should raise z capital of £80,000, to be expended in nnprovement. The system was very much run down at the time Since then there has been expended under this head over £200,000. The Company borrowed £42.000 from1 the government, at from 5 to 4± per cent., repaying £6,000 a^pewd of twenty years. In 1876 a reorganization of the financial

system tookj place. A sinking fund was established, providing for the extinction of the balance in thirty-five years, by an annual payment ef £1,780. The first dividend, two per cent, on the paid up capital, £66,000, in shares of £50 each, was then paid, Nov. 1876, and the second of one per cent., in the following May, making a total for the year of 3 per cent. Since then the dividends paid to shareholders have averaged 3i per cent. In January, 1886, the entire debt to the Government, under the old Act, was .£31,000. The Albert Basin was constructed under the old Act at a cost of ,£8,000. It consists of 3I acres. Owing to the building of the sewage aquaduct, there is a bar at the entrace which prevents vessels of greater draught than 12 feet six inches frcm getting into it. The original basin, now called ''The Old Basin," is chiefly used for storing log timber. The Newry navigation at present consists of a navigable river from Warrenpoint to the Victoria Lock at Fathom, a mile and a half, English, of a ship canal, built by William Dargan for the company, from Fathom to the Albert Basin three miles, a quayage through Newry for vessels drawing lo| feet of water, and an inland canal from Newry to Portadown, 18 miles, English. The canal to Lough Neagh is under another jurisdiction. Horse-power is used inland, and steam-power toward the sea. The shortest lock is 61 feet long and 14 feet wide. The Victoria Lock at Fathom is 220 feet long and 50 feet wide. It is constructed of granite blocks. In 1884 the Navigation Company secured a new Act of Parliament enabling it to cut a channel in the Newry River and Carlingford Lough, for a distance of over three miles. The navigation was depending on a tidal river in which there was only a depth of 2 feet six inches at low water, spring tides. It will be increased to 7 feet throughout a width of 120 feet. The Newry1 Navigation Company borrowed £40,000 from the Government for this work, at 4 per cent. ; payment is to commence in 1890, and the principal is to be cleared off in 20 years by yearly instalments. The bill provides that the Company shall at no time declare a dividend of more than 5 per cent. Any surplus from that amount is to go toward a reduction of the loll, which under the old Act was is. id. per ton register. No charge on cargo. The directors of the Navigation Company are ex-officio Harbor Commissioners. There is a separate Board known as the Carlingford Lough Commissioners, 12 in number, two of whom are named by the Newry 'I own Commissioners, two by the Newry Navigation Company, and two by the Newry, Dundalk and Greenore Railway Company. It was organised under an Act of Parliament passed in 1864 for the purpose of having a Navigable channel cut through the bar of Carlingford Lough.

ing of its mills, and it was convenient to receive it from Camlough. After satisfying the statutory requirements in regard to Newry, the increase proved sufficient to drive eleven mills on theway from the lake to Carrowbawn, one mile from the borough boundary, where the waste is taken by the Navigation Company into the canal, and paid for by a fixed sum of £100 a-year. Eight of the eleven falls on the stream are used for power purposes by the Bessbrook Spinning Company itself. The owners of the other three pay 2 5s. per foot of fall per annum. One of the provisions of the Water Act empowered the Town Commissioners to acquire property and establish regular markets for the sale of all kinds of produce on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. In compliance with this, five market-places were enclosed in convenient parts of the town, at a cost of over ,£17,000. They were ready for use in 1873. Previous to that time the markets were held in the streets, without regulation or tolls. The Act empowered the Town Commissioners to borrow ^42,000. Of this amount ^27,000 was spent on the water scheme alone. It was borrowed from English Insurance Companies, at five per cent., and will be paid off by a sinking fund of i£ per cent, in thirty years. Gas was first used in Newry in 1822. It was supplied by an English Company, which in 1857 sold its interest to locallyorganized shareholders, under the title of the Newry Gas Consumers' Company, Limited. The Town Commissioners, under an Act of Parliament, in 1879, bought out the Consumers' Company for ^28.500. The paid-up capital of the Company was .£13,500 and the difference between this and the sum paid was supposed to cover the good-will. The works, then and still in Kilmorey street, were in a bad condition, and it took £8,000 to put them into good shape. The enabling Act permitted the Commissioners to borrow ^40,000, but they only took £32,000, husbanding the rest of the power for use in case electricity should have to be provided instead of gas. The old company chaged 5s. 5d. per 1,000 feet for the gas. The Town Commissioners, in 1879, reduced the rate to 5s. Some time afterward they reduced it to 4s. 7d. This is intended merely to cover expenses, interest at 4J per cent., and one per cent, sinking fund, the debt to be extinguished in forty years. The income of the Town Commissioners is drawn from the tolls of the markets, the monthly fair, from the water supply, gas supply, street sweepings, and from a general improvement rate. Out of this interest is paid on loans, cost of departmental management, street repairs, &c. The market tolls are regulated to provide for the ordinary working and interest on loans. Hiring fairs, after the Scottish pattern, have proved very successful at Newry.

HE illustration on the opposite page represents the Dromalane Mill, an offshoot of the great spinning and weaving enterprises of the Bessbrook Spinning Company, Limited. It is situated in the Clanrye Valley, near the Canal, river and railway, and although inferior in size to the mills at Bessbrook, is fully equal to them in perfection of outline and structural solidity. Indeed there is good reason to believe that Bessbrook was the model from which the builder took his plans. At the time of the American War the popular impression in Ulster was that the high road to fortune lay through the portals of every mill devoted to the manufacture of flax. The late Mr. Hill Irvine, a well known and wealthy resident of Newry, became a convert to this idea, and without having had any previous experience, spent about £40,000 in the erection of the Dromalane Mill- The walls are composed of native granite, the window dressings being of redbrick. The stairs are also granite, and the building throughout is in almost every respect fire-proof. Mr. Irvine began to use the mill for flax spinning about the year 1866. H,e continued it for ten years. The Dromalane Spinning Company, Limited, succeeded by purchase in 1876, but owing to a depression in irade, did not make it a profitable undertaking. In 1882, the Bessbrook Spinning Company bought it, and it has since been continued at its full capacity as a spinning mill. Certain important changes were made in the machinery. There are 7,200 spindles worked by steam, and employment is given to from 300 to 400 people. Bessbrook has telephonic communication with Dromalane, and is partly connected with it by means of the electric tramway, the principal owners of which are the Bessbrook Spinning Company. The yarns spun at Dromalane are all sent to Bessbrook. In my book of the County Armagh, I hope to be able to afford a full description of the model town of Bessbrook. It is owned by the Spinning Company, who employ at spinning and weaving from 3,000 to 4,000 of the inhabitants. Through all the periods of depression in the linen trade this Company has maintained the even tenor of its way, demonstrating by kindly practical methods that a large population of working people, representing nearly every religion known in Ireland, may live in peace and comfort without the expenditure of a penny tor police protection.

EPISCOPAL, PRESBYTERIAN, REFORMED PRESBYTERIAN, UNITARIAN, CONGREGATIONAL, AND METHODIST CHURCHES, CHRISTIAN BRETHREN AND SOCIETY OF FRIENDS. ||T. PATRICK'S Episcopal Church is the most ancient in Newry. It was built by Sir Nicholas Bagnal, in 1578, and has been destroyed and rebuilt. Over the main entrance are the Bagnal arms, and date, the name in this instance being spelt Bagnol. The edifice itself is unpretending, but the view from it is not surpassed by any at Newry. In the churchyard are the burial places of many of the principal families of the town and vicinity. Improvements in the church-interior begun in 1879, were completed this year at a total cost of over £900, nearly all raised by voluntary subscription. They include a new chancel, with granite facing, Dungannon freestone quoins, and window dressings. The arch of balhstone, rises from black limestone polished columns, resting on corbels of bathstone. The inside windows have bathstone dressings, and the heads are ornamented in early English tracery. In the summary of work done may be mentioned the putting up of new choir stalls, reading desks, brass Communion rail, gas fixtures, and heating apparatus, and the re-fitting of pews. Mr. Matthers, of Canal-street, presented a lectern, and from the proceeds of a special fund, a new and beautiful pulpit was provided. The body is of Caen stone, and the supporting pillars of Cork and Connemara marbles. The organ loft dates from 1879. ^ r - Alex. Wheelan was the contractor for building the chancel, re-fitting pews, organ loft, &c, Mr. S- Fleming, the gas fixtures, and Mr. John Thompson the painting and decoration, and it may be said generally of the results, that they are in the highest degree creditable. The Rev. Francis King, D.D., present incumbent, has occupied the position during a period of 33 years. St. Mary's Episcopal Church has also been undergoing a change of interior. St. Mary's occupies what, in the past, was often referred to as " the low ground." It is in Gothic style of architecture, and has a tower and spire rising to a height of 190 feet. The foundation stone was laid in 1810, and the church opened for divine service in 1819. The walls are of granite, and thetotal cost, including the site, was over/15,000. The improvements to the interiorwerefinished this year. Amongthemost important of them was the erection of a new chancel, 25 ft. by 21 ft., and 50 ft. high, with a splendid window, elaborate in flowing tracery, of Armagh limestone. The tiling of the floor, encaustic after ancient examples from Christ Church, Dubliji.was

done at the expense of Mr. Henry Thomson, J.P. The chancel arch is of bathstone. At the south side a structural change had to be made for an organ chamber. The old organ—a very good instrument—was removed to it from the gallery, and overhauled and re-decorated by the makers at a cost of ^130. To give effect to this alteration a portion of the side galleries was removed, and two bathstone pillars with arches sprung from the chancel, substituted for the wall supports, at a cost of ,£50, subscribed by the rector, Rev. Samuel Smartt, M.A. The old oak pews were remodeled to the fashionable shape. New choir stalls and reading desks in oak, were presented by the widow and sisters of the late Rev. T. B. Swanzy, M.A., formerly rector of the parish, who died in 1884. The pulpit, a very fine one, in Caen stone and marbles, was presented by the family of the late Archibald Erskine, M.D., who died in 1881. Mr. Thomas Erskine Swanzy presented the lectern, as an offering to the memory of his father. There is a new Communion rail of lacquered brass. The baptismal font, Caen stone, was purchased with the proceeds of a penny subscription by the Sunday school children, assisted by Mrs, Wheatley, one of the teachers. The architect was Mr. Thomas Drew, R.H.A., and the builders, Messrs. Cullen Brothers, of Portadown. A portion of the paint work was done by Mr. John Thompson. Upward of £2,000 was expended in the contract alterations. The walls of the church interior are largely occupied by tablets, one of which commemorates Sir Trevor Corry, Baron of Poland, who died in Pomerania, 1781. He left £3000 to the poor of Newry, and £1000 to aid in the erection of a new church in Newry, 37 years before the building of St. Mary's. An inscription to the memory of another of the Corry family, the Hon. Isaac, is equally interesting. He filled the post of Chancellor of the Exchequer in the Irish Parliament, and died in 1813. According to tradition the Act of Union was signed at his residence, Deramore House, near Newry. The Presbyterian Churches of Newry, in connection with the General Assembly, are in the same neighbourhood, the older being in Sandy's street. It was erected in 1827, and its first minister was the Rev. Mr. Shields. The present minister is the Rev. J. C. Ferris. In 1876 the interior of this church was remodeled by Mr. Alex. Wheelan, builder, at a cost of about .£1,000. The work included new pews, in pitch pine, gallery front, also in pine and pierced in gothic style, a pulpit, carved pitch pine, standing on 12 pillars, hot water heating apparatus, &c. Mr. W. J. Watson, C.E., was the architect. Well kept grounds, inclosed by a handsome iron railing, serve to give effect to the outlines of the building, and to heighten its substantial

attractions. The Downshire Road Church dates from 1843. It is a modest edifice of large capacity. There are ornamental grounds, but of far too limited proportions. The Rev. Win. Wylie, is the present minister. In 1885 nearly ,£500 was spent in renovating the interior of this church, and putting up a new pulpit, composed in part of pitch pine, yellow pine, and American walnut. Messrs. Young and MacKenzie, Belfast, were the architects. Mr. Alex. Wheelan, the contractor, and the painting was done by Mr. John Thompson. At Riverside is the handsome brick church of the Reformed Presbyterian Congregation. This edifice was erected in 1866 by the Presbyterians, under the general Assembly, at a cost of £2,200. The Rev. Mr. Legate, its minister in 1883, went to Australia, and an agreement was arrived at by which the congregation was dissolved, part joining the Sandy's street church, and part the Downshire Road church. The trustees sold the building to the Reformed Presbyterians, who had previously been worshipping in the old Meeting House, High street. The bum agreed upon for the purchase was ^800, to be divided equally between the two churches referred to. Rev. S. Lyons is the present minister of the Reformed presbyterians. In Needham Place isthe First Presbyterian, Unitarian Church, It is in the gothic style, graceful and elegant in proportion, and has a handsome spire. The date of the erection was 1853. In the interior arrangements simplicity is the ruling idea. Comfortable seating accommodation is all that has involved expenditure. The only expensive decoration is a stained window, erected by the late Mr. Robert Greer, for many years an active member of the congregation. Shortly after his death in 1867, a brass plate was placed under the window inscribing it to his memory. The present minister is the Rev. J. A. Crozier. John Mitchel's father was minister of this body in the old Meeting House, High street. His remains lie in the green attached to it and near his grave is that of the son. Ebenezer Chapel, the place of worship of the Congregationalists, is on Trevor Hill. It was erected in 1816, and is a neat, solid edifice. Mr. Isaac Stewart, Sunday school superintendent, has been connected with it for thirty years. The membership in January, 1886 was about 70. Rev. John Gleeson is the minister. The Church is aided by the Irish Evangelical society. Methodism is represented by one Church, a substantial building, close to the Presbyterian Church in Sandy's street. It stands in inclosed, tastefully planted grounds, and beside it is the commodious well-appointed manse of the minister, Rev. James Donnelly. Mr. Donnelly's associate in charge of the circuit is the Rev. John Chambers.

The Christian Brethren have their chief meeting place on Trevor Hill. Several members of the society of Friends reside in Newry. They attend at the Bessbrook Meeting House, which occupies a beautiful site on the summit of a gentle hill. The electric tram starts from Newry in time tor meeting. CATHOLIC CHURCHES, CONVENTS, ST. COLMAN'S COLLEGE, CHRISTIAN BROTHERS, &c. jJT. PATRICK'S, the Cathedral of the diocese of Dromore, occupies a prominent position in Hill street. It is built throughout of granite. The foundation stone was laid in 1825, and the consecration ceremony took place three years later. The handsome front is surmounted by battlements, and octagonal towers. In the interior there is a large seating capacity. Heavy granite pillars separate the aisles from the nave. There is a good organ. At the back of the altar is a large window of stained glass, erected in memory of the Rev. Father MacCartan, by the Holy Family of Newry. At the left of the Virgin's altar the first window was placed in 1882, in memory of Thomas and Anne Hughes, by their sons, Patrick Joseph and Thomas Francis. The second window representing four scenes from the life of Christ, baptism, teaching, blessing of children, and quieting the waters, was erected to the memory of Patrick Grantby, by his nephews, Edward and Henry MacCartan, 1885. The stain<Sd glass window on the right of the altar of St. Joseph is sacred to the memory of Patrick Carr, erected by his widow, Margaret Carr, 1885, and represents the marriage of Joseph and Mary, the Holy Family asleep on their journey, the going up fo the temple, and the death of Joseph. Next to this is a second window to her nephew, by Margaret Carr, 1885. St. Mary's Chapel, in Chapel Street, was erected in 1789, and to a certain extent is the most interesting of the Catholic houses of worship in Newry. In the burial ground attached to it are interred some of the human remains which were dug up at the time of the removal of the remains of the abbey. The chapel is in the shape of a Greek cross, minus one of the arms. Three very deep galleries are approached in the old-fashioned way, by steps on the exterior. Over the six doors are transome lights of stained glass, presented by the Rev. Father O'Hagan. The altars are simply decorated. Hanging above are pictures of the Passion and of the Virgin, the gift of a Dublin lady. A large window on the left, representing the Madonna

and Child, is in memory of Edward Quinn and Family. Another of the same size by Meyer of Munich, representing the death of St. Joseph, was erected this year upon the right of the altar, by James, Joseph, and Elizabeth Torley, in memory of their father James Torley, of Temple Hill. From the paths of the burial ground there is a fine view of the valley. The interest is greatly enhanced by the extraordinary number of magnificent yews, developed to unusual proportions by reason of their favorable position on this southern slope. Robert Sutton, the sexton for 37 years past, planted the greater number in his time. The tomb of Bishop Garvey, 1763, is on the old ground, and approached by the same path is the resting place of Rev. Dr. Blake, i860, built of grey stone against a gable-like elevation of granite, set in the wall. A handsome and chaste Celtic cross, by Emerson, of white marble, is in memory of the Murtaghs of Belfast. Near the foot of the hill is the site of a former chapel, and upon it a few stones removed from the old abbey. Of the Dominican Church, in Queen Street, justice requires it to be said that a more beautiful and symmetrical edifice is not to be found in Ireland. From its ornate and lofty tower to the least finished detail, it is a harmonious work. Three arched doorways opening from a broad platform, reached from the street by a flight of steps, are of Portland stone, the central one being particularly deep and richly ornamented. The nave is supported upon splendid pillars of polished granite, which rest upon white polished marble bases. The capitals, in Portland stone, are different in design, and support six arches at each side, over which are twelve clerestory windows. A pulpit worthy of the house has been erected by Patrick M'Donnell, in memory of his wife, 1884. This beautiful work of art is of white veined marble, set with carved panels of Carara marble, the largest face one being the transfiguration. The pulpit rests on green marble pillars. A handsome organ loft of carved Portland stone over the entrance, contains a fine instrument. The Church floor is tiled, and that of the chancel is richly carpeted in green, overlayed with crimson cloth. St. Joseph's altar is of pure white and colored marbles, set with creamy bas-reliefs in Caen stone, representing the saint in his fatherly relation, the Holy Family and death of Joseph. The altar of the Virgin is a work of great elegance, abounding in marble carving of flowers and delicate filagree. The High altar is at present a temporary one. Seven graceful lancet lights back the chancel, and the apse is azure with emblematical panels. Broad spaces are everywhere left open for the insertion of rich detail, but so far as the work has progressed, all has been produced from the best materials, with a true idea of artistic harmony and effect.

church was begun in 1871 ; Mr. Ashland was the architect, and Mr. Peter Shane, clerk of works. Mr. Wm. Campbell did the painting and decoration. Very Rev. J. T. Willard, O.P., was Prior at the time. He was succeeded about 1874 by Very Rev. Thos. A. O'Callaghan, O.P., who, having become coadjutor Bishop of Cork, was succeeded by Very Rev. V. P. Flood, O .P. During his stay the organ (presented by the late John Quinn) was put in at a cost of ^700. Mr. Quinn also gave the Rosary altar, the window over it, and statue, total cost, j£8oo. St. Joseph's altar cost ,£325. It was presented by Miss Rose Connor. Very Rev. T. F. Purcell, O.P., was appointed Prior in 1883. Since then the tower and spire have been erected by Mr. Jas. McAdorey, builder, Dundalk, at a cost of ,£2,000. The Convent has also been added. The total amount expended on Church and convent thus far is about £16,000. .Attached to the convent is a fruit and vegetable garden. It adjoins that of the old Brewery House, Mr. James Warnock's residence, in which are some splendid yews. Half-way up High Street, a comely and neat building indicates the Convent of St. Clare. The nuns are popularly referred to as " the poor Clares." They came to Newry from Harold's Cross, Dublin, in 1830. Offshoots are in Cavan, established i860, and Keady, Armagh, 1871. An Australian contingent went out in 1883. This convent is also parent to the convent at Kenmare, and the celebrated " Nun of Kenmare " was a novice here. Between 400 and 500 children are taught under the National Board of Education. Many of the poorer ones are clothed, and, to the utmost extent of limited means, are fed. A small elegantly-decorated chapel, in the Gothic style, was built after the nuns came into possession. The schoolrooms are large and well ventilated. For the Abbey grounds in the rear it would be difficult to say too much. Rising by a gradual ascent to a great height above the town, they afford a charming prospect and perfect breathing place. The convent gardens are handsomely laid out. The Convent of the Sacred Heart, presided over by the Sisters of Mercy, runs from Catherine-street to Canal Street. Broad sunny corridors, adorned with pictures and mottoes, are thorough between both streets. The convent chapel is tastefully fitted, and has some good paintings, the largest depicting the scene of Thomas doubting. Not the least of the attractive features are beautiful terraced gardens with ample conservatory and statuary embellishments. A department in which are about 350 children, is taught under the authority of the National Board of Education, and there is a sewing school of about 70 pupils, the work of which, by reason of its superior excellence,

At the Dublin Exhibition of 1882, certificates of merit were awarded for similar productions. This convent was founded in Canal-street by the Rev. Mother Mary O'Connor, in 1855, and was a branch from Kinsale. The extension to Catherine-street was made in 1863. The Home for the Aged and Orphans in Kilmorey-street, founded by Mr. Thomas Fagan, is in charge of the sisters. St. Colman's Diocesan College is at Violet Hill, a suburb of the town, possessing in its surroundings mountain, woodland, and valley scenery of the most charming character. Magnificent beeches divide the grounds from the canal and river. The palace of the Bishop adjoins the College and shares with it the attention ofvisttors. The ereotion of New buildings three storeys in height, of Belfast brick, dressed with Newry granite, was begun in 1877. Most Rev. John Pius Leahy, D.D., the venerable bishop of the diocese laid the foundation stone in June of that year, and the sermon on the occasion was preached by the late eloquent Dominican, Very Rev. Thomas N. Burke, O.P. The day was wet but shelter was afforded, by an awning for the large number qf people who attended, In the spring of 1879 the opening ceremony took place. There is a library of over 2,000 books. A new avenue is one of the substantial improvements. It cost nearly £400, and has the advantage for day pupils, of shortening the distance from the College to the centre of the town by about half a mile. Very Rev. Henry O'Neill is president. At Mount St. Patrick, in Chapel-street, are the School and Convent of the Christian Brothers, they were erected in 1805 and endowed by the Most Rev. Dr. Lennon, Bishop of Dromore. The situation is exceedingly good. Schools in Kilmorey and Margaret streets are also taught by the Brothers. The latter is held in a handsome brick building erected for the purpose. WALKS AND DRIVES, HANDSOME PLACES OF RESIDENCE, THE CROWN FORT, &c. jjN every direction from Newry are walks anc drives abounding in beautiful scenery and places of interest. The five miles of road to Warrenpoint have con•^Sl stantly in view the river valley, and the ever-varying heights of Down and Armagh. Handsome private residences are numerous at both sides of the river. On the Armagh side are those of Mr. Henry Barcroft, the Glen; Mr. Henry

103 Thomson, J.P., Altnaveigh House ; Mr. T. D'Arcy Hoey, J.P., Dromalane House ; and Mr. James M'Mahon, J.P,, Bellevue. Mr. Barcroft's place has a glen formed by the action of a mountain stream, which in its course, from a high elevation, produces several cascades and pools, framed by trees of lordly proportions, and by ornamental shrubs, into pictures of sylvan beauty sweetly and refreshingly inviting. The walks through the glen, by the kindness of Mr. Barcroft, are open to the public. Mr. Hoey's place, Dromalane House, has a park of 6j acres, in which some of the loveliest effects of landscape gardening are visible. There are grottoes, open rock-work, a cascade, and two trout ponds fed by a sparkling brook, and shaded by large trees which have captivated the hearts of a colony of rooks. Dromalane House is near the Dromalane Spinning Mill, and was the residence of its original owner, the late Mr. Hill Irvine. It occupies the site of the birthplace of John Mitchel, and he died in it. Mr. Irvine was married to one of Mr. Mitchel's sisters; John Martin, also a brother-in-law of Mr. Mitchel's, caught cold while attending the funeral of the latter, and died in the same house. Along the Downshire road ' are many private residences of a most substantial sort, some of them being very elegant. The road begins at the junction of Trevor Hill and Sandy's street, and is marked by a tall granite monument which perpetuates the memory of Trevor Corry, whose services as a magistrate secured him much public respect. Among the handsome private places in the vicinity of Newry are Ivy Lodge, residence of Mrs. Swanzy ; Sheepbridge House, residence of Mrs. Cowan ; and Ashgrove, residence of Mr. Moorhead. Ashgrove House was built by Mr. John O'Hare for the late Mr. J. M. Magee, Sessional Crown solicitor for county Armagh, and cost ,£4,000. Some of the finest buildings in Newry, notably, the large flour mills of Messrs. Sinclair & Son, were erected under contract by Mr. O'Hare. On the Eathfriland Road, above the town, is the Crown Fort, from the antiquarian point of view, most interesting of the sights of Newry. It is an earth-work 112 feet high, with a base almost circular, having a circumference of 585 feet. The fosse surrounding it is 20 feet broad and 10 feet in depth. It is supposed that the celebrated battle of Magh Rath, 637, was fought in the valley around this mount instead of at Moira. Domnahll, the chief king, and the forces of the southern provinces were opposed by king Cougal of Ullagh, at the head of an army composed of his own people, and of mercenaries. Cougal was defeated and slain. Shane O'Neill, 1567, in his rebellion against the English, also used the Crown Fort as a base of operations.





Factory and Stores, QUEEN STREET

KHIS factory occupies the premises which formerly belonged to Henry's Brewery, famous for over half a century in the North of Ireland. Queen street is in the Armagh part of the borough of Newry, and is most favorably situated for tapping the currents of mountain springs. One of the purest of them was found upon the brewery property at a depth of one hundred feet through the solid rock. It cost over ,£1,000 to get at it. Mr. James Rice, owner of the mineral water factory, soon after beginning his enterprise in 1881, sent a sample of the water to be put to the test of analysis by Professor, now Sir Charles, Cameron President of the Royal College of Surgeons, Ireland. In the certificate of Sir Charles the fact is set forward that " this water is free from color and has no peculiar flavor or odor, * *. I may say that the ingredients are favorable for mineral water manufacture." Mr. Rice had previously, for some years, been engaged as a wholesale bottler of porter and ale, a branch of business which is made a feature by many of the mineral water manufacturers in Ireland. Having a large and growing constituency in the Counties of Down, Armagh and Louth, for porter and ale, it became a comparatively easy matter for him to popularize his asrated waters, and finally to turn his attention to the working of an export trade. The factory, stores, stables, &c, occupy about an acre of ground, and there are two entrances, one from Queen street and the other from Dorian's Hill. Mr. Rice has spared no expense in the matter of machinery, and having a thoroughly qualified manager, was enabled to compete successfully at the Dublin Artizans' Exhibition of 1885. The gold medal, illustrated on the opposite page, was awarded for the excellence of the exhibit made for his factory in lemonade, ginger ale, sarsaparilla, soda water, champagne cider, and kali water. Only one other gold medal was given in this department of the exhibition.

NEWRY AND PART OF POSTAL DISTRICT. ALPHABETICAL DIRECTORY. :o : Names not found under this head should be sought in the Newry Directory to Business, Professional and Public Bodies, and in the County Directory. The Post Offices of Poyntzpass, abbreviated P'pass, Jerretts pass, (J'pass) Cabra, Kilcoo, Ardarragh (Ardara), Magherasaul (M'saul), Lisnacree, Killowen, and Donaghmore (Donamore) being under the Newry postal authority, the names of the principal farmers receiving letters through them are given here. This arrangement is rendered necessary by reason of the fact that a great many letters addressed to sub-post offices are delivered by rural postmen on the way from the head office. Marked thus • are farmers or landowners.

IN THE NEWRY DISTRICT. M/5.DDRESSES of letters to persons residing in a sub-postal ©> district should include the head office, thus: Annalong, Newry. ANNALONG. JWING to a liberal expenditure on behalf of the Government, this village promises to be one of the most prosperous in Down. In 1850 a pier was completed by the Board of Works, at a cost of nearly £,i, 500, of which ,£1,653 igs. 3d. was a grant. Further improvements have recently been made to the harbor, under contract from the Board of Works, and when completed, will cost .£3,550. Herring fishing off the coast, in good seasons, has been profitable. Some 15 fishing luggers belong here. A charge of 2s. 6d. per year is made upon each for the use of the harbor. 120 trading vessels entered during the year ending in 1886. The chief import is coal, and the exports granite and potatoes. There is a depth of about 12 feet, spring-tides, at the pier-head -r neaps, 8 feet. A charge of 2d. per ton on the register of a trading vessel is made. There is nothing on cargo in or out. Annalong is situated in the south-eastern part of the county. Its nearest railway station is Newcastle, 6 miles, Irish. Kilkeel, 4 miles, Irish, is the nearest police station. Lord Kilmorey is the principal owner of the district, the lands of which are rocky, and are used mostly for tillage. The crops raised are potatoes,flax,and oats. Population, 218 in 1881. Glassdrummond is in this postal district. Church of Ireland—Rev. Canon A. Hamilton, A. Robinson Dudgeon Harbor Master—Win. M'Burney Post Master—Wm.

BALLYDUGAN AND BALLYKILBEG. jETTERS for Ballykilbeg, which is a rural post-office, are forwarded from Ballydugan, also a rural postoffice. Although both offices are within three miles of Downpatrick, for convenience sake they remain under the Newry authority. Mails are also sent to them from Downpatrick. The lands of the districts are good for pasture and tillage. Ballydugan Lake, beautiful in its surroundings, s about two miles from Downpatrick. During the war of 1641, Ballydugan House was destroyed by fire, and the owner, Col. White, was slain. Ballykilbeg is famous as the birthplace of Mr. Wm. Johnston, M. P.

AT BKTAHSPOED, is beautifully situated on the confines of Tollymore Park, and possesses every requisite calculated to promote the convenience and comfort of the nobility, gentry, and tourists ; it is only a few minutes' drive from the fashionable watering-place, Newcastle. Visitors staying at this hotel have the privilege of walking and driving in the magnificent grounds of Tollymore Park at all times. A comfortable coffee-room, facing the sea and mountain, is set apart for the especial usejof ladies not requiring a private drawing-room. Terms moderate. Postingarrangementscomplete ROBERT HERRON, Proprietor. BRYANSFORD. jjUMMER visitors to Newcastle find Bryan sford among the most attractive of the show-places, within a distance of two miles. Lord Roden is the owner of the district, which is fair for pasture and tillage. The chief crops are potatoes, oats, flax, and turnips. Bryansford is situated on the side of a hill, and is well sheltered. It consists of from about 20 to 30 houses, and the inhabitants, for the greater part, are of the farming and laboring classes. Tollymore Park, the residence of Lord Roden, is entered at the village, and, from a point near the gateway, reveals a wealth of scenic beauty stupendous in magnitude. Slieve Donard, its rugged outlines partly hidden by plantations, is in view. Added to this are walks and drives miles in length, with the accessories of a well-maintained demesne. The river Shimnah runs at the foot of the mountain, and has many picturesque elements, including cascades, swinging bridges, and " meetings" with other waters shed from the Mourne Mountains. From Lord Roden's mansion, on the hillside are visible the mountains, and the sea to the Isle of Man. Bryansford has a first-rate hotel, and the Park is open to the public on Tuesdays and Fridays.

CASTLEWELLAN. [N beauty of situation, no town in the county can surpass Castlewellan. As a business centre it also compares favorably. The farmers of the district, after an expenditure of labor, not easily calculated, have succeeded in greatly improving their lands. At the eastern entrance, on the way to Newcastle, which is distant a little over two miles, dry stone walls, from 7 to 8 feet high, and broad enough for carriage drives, give some idea of what has been done to change fields of rocks into fair pastures. The town consists of two squares and a connecting street. In the upper square there is a market house, with tower and clock. The market is held every Monday. At one time brown linens, and linen yarns, in large quantities, were sold. Now the commodities include hay, straw, potatoes, turnips, fowl, eggs, butter, and grain in the season. Hiring markets are held in May and November of each year, and a fair for the sale of cattle, sheep, &c, on the second Monday of each month. Granite quarries in the neighborhood are extensively worked. Lord Annesley resides at Castlewellan in winter. His demesne has an entrance from the upper square, and is open to visitors on Mondays. There are some fine trees in it, and a lake abounding in trout. The castle, which was rebuilt about 30 years ago, has a good view of the Mourne Mountains. Dundrum is about 4 miles from Castlewellan. On the outskirts of the town, the Church of Ireland has a commanding position. The grounds enclosing it are terraced, and contribute not a little to accentuate the points of architectural excellence of which it has many. It is in the Gothic style, has a handsome porch, and a most graceful spire. The expense of the building and decoration was borne by the late Lord Annesley, whose remains are entombed under the

chancel. A new Roman Catholic Church is the latest acquisition to the ecclesiastical structures. It adorns the lower square, and is a conspicuous feature of the landscape, impressing the stranger afar off. T h e architectural effects are produced in the early English Gothic style. The beauty of the blue granite of the district is strikingly manifest in this edifice. In July, 1880, the foundation stone was laid by the late Bishop of Down and Connor, the Most Rev. Dr. Dorrian.

ANNSBOROUGH MILLS AND GREENVALE BLEACH WORKS. ITHIN half a mile of Castlewellan, and three miles of Dundrum, are situated the Annsborough Mills and Greenvale Bleach Works. In and around the beautiful valley, illustrated on the opposite page, are acres upon acres of buildings. In 1800, the late Mr. James Murland founded here the enterprise which has grown to such proportions. His early efforts were directed to the bleaching of linens, and to this purpose he devoted 80 acres. Spinning by machinery and handloom and powerloom weaving were added. In 1828 the mills to the east were erected, and the largest building, used for spinning, dates from 1836. It consists of three storeys, and a dormer story, 240 feet long and 50 feet wide. Stone is the chief material employed in construction. The bleach green was completely remodeled in 1863. Commodious warehouses, stores, and offices, 170 feet long, 36 feet wide, and two storeys high, were put up in 1865. The total acreage under buildings, and available for bleaching purposes at present is 229. In the bleaching department, work is done for other manufacturers. The spinning mill has 10,000 spindles. Part of the yarns produced, all linen, are woven into sheetings and diapers by 100 powerloom?, and the rest sold in the English, Scotch and Continental markets. A traction engine runs twice a day between the mills and the railway station and quay at Dundrum, which is the shipping point for yarns and linens to the European and American markets. Water and steam in conjunction give the motive power in summer, and in winter the water is almost strong enough to drive the machinery alone. The operatives number over 1,000; two-thirds are girls. Most of them live in the village, which now consists of 138 good artizans' cottages with slated roofs, and ample gardens. For the benefit of the workers Mr. Murland, in 1836, provided a schoolhouse for males and females, and it has been ever since under the National Board of Education. There is a news-room in the village, given in the same manner, ?!>d'supplied with gas and fire. The result of the many acts of kindness from employer to employed is seen in the fact that there has never been any trouble about wages. After the death 01 Mr. James Murland, Mr. Charles Murland, J.P., Ardnabannon, succeeded to the chief proprietorship. Associated with him are Mr. C. W. Murland, Annsborough, and Mr. W. Murland, yreenvale. The name of the founder is still kept to the front n ™ ">e business transactions.

CLOUGH. ||LOUGH is a centre for the distribution of mails from Newry. The sub post offices of Loughinisland, Maghera, Minerstown, Seaforde, and Tyrella are supplied from it. Ini88ithe population of the village was 236, and there has not been much of a change since. It consists of one street of houses, built upon rising ground, at the highest point of which there is a Danish fort, containing the ruins of a square castle. Dr. Cromie, tenant of the lands adjoining this piece of antiquity, has endeavored to heighten its attractions by planting trees at the base of the mound. Clough is in the parish of Loughinisland, in which are many forts, also of Danish origin, and church ruins of considerable interest. At Anadorn, in the same parish, is the site of the castle of the MacCartans, ancient chieftains. The lands of the Clough district are fair for tillage. Oats, potatoes, and wheat are the chief crops. Some flax is grown. Capt. Ker is the owner. Seaforde, a prettily situated village, is within sight of Clough. The nearest Railway station to both is Tullymurry, a little over two miles from each. Dundrum is also two miles, Downpatrickfivemiles, and Castlewellan four miles. Three fairs are held in the year. The handsomest private residence in the vicinity is that of Col. Forde, Seaforde. A richly wooded demesne, lakes, and gardens are among the charms to which the public have free access. Church of Ireland, — Seaforde, Life Boat Station—Tyrella,W.IQuinn, sec Rev.

DUNDRUM. 1 UNDRUM is a station on the Belfast and County Down Railway, and a seaport of growing importance. It is in the parish of Kilmegan, seven miles southeast of Downpatrick. In 1881 the population was 372. Lord Downshire is the owner. The land of the district is fair for tillage and the principal crops are oats and potatoes. Some flax is raised. Considerable interest has been manifested in the progress of Dundrum by the Downshire family. The third Marquis built a quay which has been improved from time to time, and is now 800 feet long. At the head there are 11 feet of water in ordinary tides. At the quay 10 feet and 8 feet. The tolls are 3d. per ton register upon a vessel fully laden, and id. per ton register in ballast. All coal vessels pay 2d. per ton cargo in addition to the 3d. per ton register. The remains of the castle built for Knights Templar by Sir John DeCourcy, in the 12th century, are still extensive, and are seen to great advantage from the North-eastern approach. When the monasteries were dissolved, the castle and several townlands were given to the Ear. of Kildare. The Magennises were for some time lords of the castle, but it was taken irom them for disloyalty and given to the Earl of Ardglass, from whom it passed to Viscount Blundell, and became Lord Downshire's by inheritance. A fair is held on the 3rd Tuesday of each month. The Church of Ireland and Catholic Churches are new and add greatly to the appearance of the village. The former is a memorial to the late Lord Downshire. Quite a reputation has been secured by the Dundrum

149 Rifle Club. It consists of about 30 members. Lord A. Hill is President, Capt. Wallace, Capt. Dl. Teer, secretary, and W. J. Kidd and R. Johnston, treasurers. The Downshire Cricket Club has also head-quarters here. John Dove is Captain, and W. I. Quinn secretary. It has about 36 members.

ISO HILLTOWN. ILLTOWN is a well built, pleasantly situated village, 2\ miles, Irish, from Rathfriland, 7 from Newry, 5 from Rostrevor and 5 from Ballyroney, the nearest Railway station. The lands of the district are owned in part by Lord Downshire, Lord Annesley and R. N. Batt, D.L. They are medium in quality and are chiefly used for tillage. Oats and potatoes, among the crops, receive most attention. Only a small portion is under flax. A fair is held on the second Tuesday of each month. The Church of Ireland, in the village, has recently been renovated. On the site of the scutch and corn mills, belonging to the Martin representatives, near the village, John and Felix O'Neill died in 1809. They were said to be the last descendants, in the male line, of the O'Neills of Ulster. Their burial place is in the old church-yard of Clonduff, about half a mile to the East of the village. Some ruins of the ancient church still remain. Near the walls a very handsome antique chalice was dug up in 1832. The grave oi the O'Neills is marked by a stone bearing the well known coat of arms of the sept. The parish of Clonduff once formed part of the possessions of the Abbey of Bangor.

J A . T E S B R . I D G E is a station on the Great Northern

Railway, 4 miles from Rathfriland, 5 from Banbridge, and II from Newry. It is in the barony of Upper Iveagh, and belongs to Acheson Thompson, Q.C. The land 01 the district is medium in quality. It is used for pasture and tillage, the principal crops being oats, potatoes and flax. Buttermaking ig carried on to a considerable extent, and with satisfactory results. The inhabitants are for the greater part of the 'arming class, and amongst them there is a strong feeling in favor of establishing fairs. In its course through the county

152 from the Deer's Meadow, the source in the Mourne Mountains, the Bann flows through Katesbridge, and at this point tempts many anglers to its banks in summer. Indeed it was owing to the bridging of it here that the village came to be named. While the bridge was in progress of erection, the workmen bbarded at the house of Mrs. Kate M'Kay, in view of it, and as a reward for the trouble she had taken to ensure their comfort, it was made to serve the purpose of a memorial. At a prominent point, in the centre of1 the village, is a mound which at one time was of considerable size: It is supposed to have been of Danish Origin. In 1862 it was reduced to the dimensions of an ornamental mbund to facilitate the building of a commodious Presbyterian place- of worship, and manse.

I N 1881 the population of Kilkeel was ,i^£2- It is in ' the barony of Mourne, on the sea, in the southern portion of the county. At Greencastle, 3J miles, Irish, further south, there is a steam ferry to Qreenore, the nearest railway station. It is 15 miles, Irish, to Newry by road, and 10 miles, Irish, to Newcastle. Kilkeel promisesjto secure a large increase of importance in the near future. It is sufficiently far from a large town to be unaffected by competition, and only lacks railway facilities to fill out the measure of its requirements. At intervals since 1872, harbor works have been in progress. The North pier was raised 8J feet, and lengthened 50 feet, and the inner basin was shortened 100 feet at a total cost of over £10,000. Of this amount the Government grant was over ,£7,000. Lord Kilmorey subscribed ^100, and a few others ^50 each. The balance was raised by taxation, and the harbor turned over to the county. In 1885 there was a grant of ^7,400, and a contract entered into with Messrs. Wheelan and Grills for further improvements. The Government contributed threefourths of this amount, and the rest was made up by local suhscription and raised off the barony of Mourne. The additional work means an extension of the pier. The expectation is that tt will be finished this year. There will then be mooring accommodation for about 20 coasting traders, or about 100 fishing luggers. The depth of water at the pier head, springs, is 15 feet, and n feet in the basin. Mr. L. C. Bridgeman, C.E., superintends on behalf of the Board of Works. The pier is about half a mile from the main thoroughfare. The charge on luggers

is 5s. for the season. Vessels with cargo are taxed at the rate of 5d. per ton on the register, nothing on cargo. Potatoes, oats, native timber and granite are the main exports- Coal is the chief import. In good seasons the herring fishing off the coast has been of great value to the inhabitants, a considerable number of whom are fishermen. Some 30 luggers belong to the town, and about 35 row boats, the owners of which fish all the year round. Herring, whiting, haddock, ling, congor eels, skates, mackerel, lobsters and crabs are caught. During the herring season—June to November—Kilkeel is a busy place. It often occurs that 300 sailing luggers, from different parts of the United Kingdom, land their fish at the pier for despatch to the English markets. English trawlers have been known to get within three miles of Kilkeel as much as ,£45 worth of fish at one take, and ship them at Greenore for England. Kilkeel has not petitioned to be brought under the Towns Improvement Act. A market for potatoes, oats, live pigs, &c, is held weekly on Wednesdays, and in the season there is a flax market every Tuesday. A fair for cattle, sheep, horses, and produce is held on the last Wednesday of every month. The town consists of two principal thoroughfares, meeting in the Market Square. The Union workhouse is entered from the Newry Road, as is also the Church of Ireland, a granite edifice with square pinnacled and embattled tower, built in 18 J 5. In June of the present year a new transept was completed by Mr. Thomas Grills, builder, at a cost of £720, and a handsome stained-glass window put in to the memory of the late philanthropic rector, Rev. J. Forbes Close. There are two Presbyterian Churches, one of which, " Mourne," was erected in 1831, and the other, " Kilkeel," in 1832. The Catholic Church is about a mile from town, in the Newry direction. There is a Moravian Church •which was erected in 1832, and the Christian Brethren have a meeting-place. Lawn tennis is the only game that seems to have taken hold of the popular fancy. A club was established about three years ago by the officials of the Belfast Bank. The great spfcyt for which the district is famous will be found described under the head of Coursing, for which see index. Mourne Park, the beautiful demesne in which is the residence of Lord Kilmorey, is in the vicinity, and open to the public. Lord Kilmorey owns Kilkeel and a large part of the Barony of Mourne. The lands surrounding the town are fertile. They are used chiefly for tillage. Potatoes, oats, wheat, and flax, are the regular crops. The scenery of the district includes the Mourne Mountains. Reference to the druidical altars in this neighbourhood will be found under the head of stone monuments, for which also see index. The ruin of an old church at

the side of the town, known as Bridge street, divides attention with the objects of antiquarian interest referred to. Before the Church of Ireland was built it was used as a church by the Episcopalians. The building afterward served the purpose of a parochial school down to about 40 years ago, when the roof was removed. In the churchyard are the burial-places of many of the principal families. The oldest stone upon which the lettering is decipherable, bears date 1690. In a sketch of Kilkeel, written by a visitor some years ago, mention is made of a grave in the old churchyard which contains the remains of a prince, son of a Spanish king, who died on board a man-of-war off the coast. The spot is said to be marked by a holly tree, but it so happens that marks of this kind are very numerous. Dr. Thomas P. Codd, of Dublin, during a temporary residence in Kilkeel, joined me in the effort to identify the grave, but without success. Auctioneers—J. Annett, jun., A. & M. Cunningham, Mrs. C. I.. C.

MAYO BRIDGE. j|AYO Bridge is in the Barony of Upper Iveagh, four miles north-east of Newry, and on the road to Hilltown. The nearest railway station is at Newry. Lord Downshire and Robert Martin are the principal owners. The land of the district is in great part sandy and stony, and is used for tillage. The crops are oats, potatoes, and flax. Less than a dozen houses constitute the village, which takes its name from the bridge spanning the Clanrye at this point. A fair is held on the last Monday of each month. Bellaughley, a rural post-office, also under Newry. is served from Mayo Bridge.

NEWCASTLE. [IRELAND has many beautiful watering places, but among them all there is not one surpassing Newcastle in extent and variety of attractions. There are good bathing places, coast and mountain scenery, too grand for exaggerated description, and walks and drives, numerous enough to fill out the measure of an ordinary mortal's desire for sight-seeing. The village consists of houses with frontage conforming to the shore line of Dundrum Bay, and extending for a mile or more in a half circle. For the greater part the houses serve the purpose of summer residences. Lodges are provided for families, and there are first-rate hotels for tourists and for families who can appreciate a respite from the cares of housekeeping. At the railway station are elegantly fitted refreshment and dining rooms for excursionists. Donard Lodge, residence of the Dowager Lady Annesley, overlooks the beach, and is one of the places open to visitors. The grounds are beautifully laid out and planted, and have much in them to excite admiration, including a shell house, dining room for picnic parties, a water jet reaching a.height of 20 feet, a " hermit's glen," and dark cave, and several cascades. AH other objects pale into insignificance in comparison to the Mourne Mountains, which at Newcastle are so high, and so near as to seem to shut off a great part of the world. Slieve Donard, the summit of the range, 2,796 feet above the sea level, is here seen to much advantage. Many caves and fissures are found in the mountains, and along the shore. Donard's Cave has an opening from the sea. and may be explored by boat. A cave known as Armour's Hole, is about a mile from the village. It was frequented by smugglers when Newcastle had only one house. Armour, a young man of dissolute habits j threw his father into the cave and his body was found next day at St. John's Point about ten miles distant. In the vicinity is " Maggie's Leap," a fissure in



HIS Hotel was originally designed for the convenience and comfort of those desiring to take full advantage of the health renewing qualities of the air at Newcastle, in S u m m e r and Winter. As will be seen by the illustration, it is only two storeys high, thus avoiding the fatigue which attends the climbing of stairs. Accommodation is provided for ioc Visitors. Rooms en suite for Families, including Private, Sitting, and Dining Rooms. An elegantly furnished Ladies' Drawing Room at the southern side of the house commands beautiful views of the sea and the Mourne Mountains.
There is also a large Coffee Room, a Smoking Room, &c, &c. A well laid down grass Tennis Court is one of the attractions of the grounds, which are terraced toward the sea. Safe Surf Bathing from the Hotel Strand. Milk, butter, and vegetables fresh every day from the farm belonging to the hotel. Also carefully fed mutton. Pleasure Boats (sailing and rowing) to order. Carriages, Phaetons, Waggonettes, Cars, and Saddle Horses.

i63 the rock some 90 feet deep, and over 5 feet wide. A girl going to market with a basket of eggs on her head, jumped across this place. Hence the name. Visitors should avoid going too close to the edges which are overhung with moss, and verydangerous. A girl named McCrickard fell into the chasm some twelve years ago, and about two years ago, a young man fell over and was killed in presence of his affianced wife, who narrowly escaped a similar fate. The Blue Lake, at the back of Slieve Donard, reached by a 5 mile climb, has many compensations. Eagle Rock, a fascinating spot, 2 miles up Slieve Donard, was the scene of a tragedy two years ago. A youlh named Doran, while engaged in gathering blue berries, fell and was killed. Bloody Bridge, on the shore, less than a mile, is also a show place. At a distance of two miles on the road to Kilkeel there is a fragment of ruin, said to have formed part of an abbey. One mile further, in the same direction is William's Harbor, according to tradition, one of King William's many landing places. The walks and drives inland most prominently mentioned, lead to Tollymore Park, the residence of Lord Roden, described under the head of Bryansford, and Castlewellan, the residence of Lord Annesley, described under the head of Castlewellan. Both are within a distance of two miles and are open to visitors. Finally there is the strong temptation to make the visit profitable by carrying away some of the rock crystals. They are to be found in the mountains and streams of the various hues of emerald, amethyst, beryl and topaz. Newcastle is owned by Lord Annesley. It derived its name from a castle built by Felix Magennis during the year of the Spanish Armada. It was taken down by Lord Annesley nearly 50 years ago to afford a site for the Annesley Arms Hotel. Newcastle is at the end of the County Down Railway. It is 38 miles, English, from Belfast, 11^ miles from Downpatrick by rail, and 10 miles, Irish, from Kilkeel by road. Some splendid granite quarries are in the neighborhood. Several of the largest stones in the Albert Memorial, London, were shipped from one of them. Four weighed 25 tons each. About ,£30,000 was spent in the building of a pier more than 50 years ago. In 1874 about 100 feet of it was carried away, and it has been going at intervals ever since. Safe anchorage for trading vessels of 120 tons was once afforded. Now the pier head at spring tides only shows about eight feet of water. A workingmen's Reading Room, owing its foundation in great part to the thoughtfulness of Col. Ross, Mr. Ed- Vesey and Mr. Charles Knox, is a valuable institution. The visitors use, and help to sustain it. Col. Ross is President and Mr. Wm. Barry, secretary. Newcastle in 1881 had a population
of 840.

JJATHFRILAND had a population of 1,572 in 1881, and is one of the best inland market towns in Ulster. It is in the barony of Upper I veagh, 8 Irish miles northeast of Newry, 2\ Irish miles south of the Ballroney Station, on the Great Northern Railway, and 17 Irish miles south-west of Downpa trick by the old mail road. The land of the district is fair for tillage. It is not used much for pasture. The principal crops grown are potatoes, oats, wheat and flax. John Percy Meade, of the British Army, is the owner. He is the lineal descendant of Alderman Hawkins, of London, who received the site, and a considerable tract of country from Charles II. During the Parliamentary War, Aid.

i67 who fled to London for protection. He also assisted those who had not succeeded in getting away. A little over £30,000 was raised by him for this purpose, and he and his friends raised ^45,000 for use by the king in the public service. Rathfriland was originally spelt with a y instead of an i, and some of the present residents who dislike unnecessary chopping and changing still stick to the y. The history of the town began with Aid. Hawkins, but the high hill upon which it stands was famous long before his time as the natural fortress upon which the Magennises maintained their strongest castle. The streets of the town, all consisting of good substantial slated houses, run up and down, and across the hill. At the summit are three walls of the castle, the highest being about 26 feet, and having a breadth of 27 feet. They are in the garden of Mr. James Nelson, whose comfortable dwelling stands at a distance of about 40 feet. It was built in 1812 by the Scott family, and during the excavation for the foundations several dungeons were found. Human bones, coins, and pieces of armor were turned up at the same time. The late Mr. Thomas Spiers, during a residence of over 20 years after the late Captain Scott, planted ivy around the castle walls, and the growth at present is most luxuriant. At the west side portions of the outer wall and parapet are in fair preservation, forming a substantial boundary between the premises of Mr. Nelson, and those of Mr. David Wilson, and others. The view of the surrounding country from this vantage ground is exceedingly good. From the topmost tower of the castle the naked eye must have been sufficient to have discerned the approach of anything in human shape within a circle of several miles. The Mourne Mountains are to the south-west, and the valley of the Bann, broad and fertile, lies between, helping to form a picture beautiful in the extreme. Five roads appioach the town from different directions and concentrate in Church Square. In the centre of this is the Market House, a building pf ancient appearance. Rathfnland's main reliance is upon the market. Originally this was held on Wednesdays only; now markets are held also on Tuesdays and Saturdays. This is not second to any other district in Ireland for flax. Wednesday is the sale day. Fowls are also sold on Wednesday. Oats and grass seed are sold on Tuesdays and Saturdays, and pork on Tuesdays. A fair is held on the first Wednesday of each month. Butter was once a considerable product of the district. The fanners now find tillage more profitable. Within a radius of about three miles of the town reside some 150 weavers. They are supplied with fine linen yarns from different parts of the county, and do excellent work. Embroidery and hemstitching

are done by a large number of the female inhabitants of the district for Belfast and other merchants. Mr. B. B. Meek, who is considered a good authority on the subject, believes that it would pay to have a spinning mill at Rathfriland. The market often has as much as 160 tons of flax in one day, and labor is cheap and abundant. A great improvement has taken place in the business of the town within a period of 50 years. The square was nearly all occupied by thatched houses in 1836. Now there is not one. Places of public worship for Episcopalians (Church of Ireland), Presbyterian (3), Reformed Presbyterians, Methodists, Roman Catholics, Friends, and Christian Brethren are conspicuous in the thoroughfares. The Church of Ireland, an unpretentious edifice at the southern end of the square, was rebuilt in 1818 upon the foundations of the one originally built by Aid. Hawkins. At one time the Society of Friends was sufficiently strong to require a substantial Meeting House, which remains in good condition. The last Friend was Mr. Murphy, a man who had a great taste for antiquity, and to whom the Belfast Museum is indebted for much valued contributions. Rathfriland occupies a part of two parishes, Drumballyroney and Drumgath, the antiquities of which will be found described in the fore part of the book. Within about four miles of;the town, at Dehomet, an iron mine was worked some years ago. Mining was discontinued owing to the difficulties of carriage. It will probably be re-opened very soon, as the G. N. Railway runs at a distance of two miles. The houses of Rathfriland are lighted by gas, but not the streets, for the reason that the Towns Improvement Act has not been availed of. Pumps in the street supply water, and considering the elevation the sewers are perfect. From the social point of view the town is very well off. There are two Masonic Lodges, and an Orange Hall, a Young Men's Christian Association, a Mutual Improvement Society, a lodge of Good Templars, a branch of the National League, and a Lawn Tennis Club of 50 members, established a year ago. The latest addition was a coursing club. About 24 persons own greyhounds in the town and vicinity, and the first meeting was held in February of the present year. The sub-post offices of Ballyroney, Drumdrinagh, Drumgath, and Mayscorner are served with the mails from Newry, by way of Rathfriland. Auctioneers—Hudson, & Toman, J. B.

(Ky* Suits made to Order within Fourteen Hoars. ROSTREVO~R. JOSTREVOR is one of the many lovely watering-places for which Down is so famous. It is connected with Warrenpoint by a tramway about two Irish miles in length, and, from its southern aspect, is warmer in winter than other parts of the county. It is in the parish of Kilbroney, and barony of Upper Iveagh. Captain Ross of Bladensberg, owns the village, and Thomas M'Cartan, and the Earl of Kilmorey are the chief owners of the district. There is a great deal of rock encountered in the area devoted to farming. The crops include potatoes, oats, wheat, and flax. Rostrevor had a population of 706 in 1881. It is situated on an eminence, which, by comparison with the Mourne Mountains, beginning on the western side of the village, barely deserves the name of hill. It is sufficient, however, to provide from every point a charming view of Carlingford Lough and of the Louth shore, and Carlingford Mountains. Facing the Warrenpoint Road is the Church of Ireland, with a battlemented pinnacled clock-tower. The church had a new roof in 1880, and was re-seated by Mr. A. Wheelan, builder, Newry. At a higher elevation, not far from •t, is the Catholic Church, a handsome edifice with tower and spire. At the foot of the hill is the Presbyterian Church, with an ornamental cut-stone pinnacled front. In the middle of the village is a fragment of the old Protestant Church, ivycovered, with a fine Celtic Cross of modern date in the yard. It marks the family burial-place of the Rosses of Bladensberg. Handsomely planted lawns and private residences, indicative of taste and luxury, are numerous in the vicinity, and

there are good hotels and recreation places. A climb of about a mile to Cloughmore, a stone of great size, amply repays, by reason of the beautiful view which is obtained from it. Rostrevor was originally named Castle Rory, after the founder, a member of the Magennis family, who occupied a strong castle here. It acquired the present name through the marriage of Rose, daughter of Sir Marmaduke Wbitchurch, with Trevor, Viscount Dungannon—Rosetrevor, and by dropping the e in the first syllable, it becomes to a certain extent akin to the name of the present owner. One of the sights of Rostrevor is an obelisk, erected to the memory of General Ross, who fell while leading the British troops to victory at the battle of Baltimore, United States of America, Sept. 12th, 1814. There is a pier at Rostrevor 150 feet long, belonging to the Hon. A. S. G. Canning. The greatest depth of water at it, spring-tide, is 16 feet. The exports are timber and potatoes, and the imports coal. The toll per ton register on ships discharging is ijd., and on cargo from 3s. oxl. to 4s. 6d. A vessel coming in with cargo and going out with cargo, only pays toll on cargo in. The tramway running from the quay to the village, 800 yards in length, and a bridge of three arches, were built in 1880, by Mr. Thomas Grills, of Kilkeel, at a total cost of £3,000, toward the expense of which the county gave ;£ 1,600, and the balance was subscribed by Lord Kilmorey. Half-a-mile from Rostrevor, at Forestbrook, 75 people are employed at dyeing and finishing linens. At Newtown, a mile and a-half distant, is a beetling mill, and there is a bleach-green, employing forty people, at Kilbroney, one mile from the village. Auctioneer—Bernard Dunn spirits.

jO endeavor to give some idea of the merits of Warrenpoint, by comparing it with celebrated watering places in England, or America, would do it injustice. It is unique in its characteristics, and it may be said of it truthfully that it would be difficult to find a spot on the globe with an outlook more beautiful. From the beach the view of the Lough extends almost to the bar. To the right are the fresh green pastures, and wooded slopes of Omeath, many picturesquely situated private residences on the Louth side, and further to the Southwest, the Carlingford Mountains. On the left are plantations which lead the eye along the coast to the Mourne Mountains at Rostrevor. Warrenpoint has long enjoyed a well deserved popularity. It is five miles from Newry and has a good train service, the line having come into possession of the Great Northern Railway Company this year by purchase. Many of the merchants of Newry reside at Warrenpoint all the year round and take a deep interest in its welfare. 1 he population at present is considered to be close on 3,000. In 1881 it was 1,887. Just one-hundred years previously the site of the town was a rabbit warren—hence the name—and the inhabitants were accommodated in two houses. During the oyster dredging season a few huts were occupied by fishermen. In the early days, when the Danish freebooters frequented Carlingford Lough, it took more inducements than Warrenpoint possessed to get a large population to settle in such an exposed position. While the Ulster chieftains continued to contest the right of the English to govern Ireland the reasons for its neglect were equally patent. Narrow Water castle, seen from the train, on the way to Newry, was built by Hugh DeLacy, in 1212, to defend the river pass. It was destroyed in the war of 1641, and rebuilt in 1663 r>y the Duke of Ormond. In the vicinity is the residence of Major W. J. Hall, D.L., owner of Warrenpoint. The private residences in and around Warrenpoint are numerous, and for the greater part have well kept grounds, and share the prospect in which mountains and Lough are combined. A weekly market is held every Friday, and a fair on the last Friday of each month. There is a first-rate quay with mooring accommodation for a considerable number of vessels. It is a dry harbor, quite safe from winds and sea, and is connected by rail with all parts of Ireland. During the year ending in 1886 vessels to the number of 515 discharged in it. There are two steam cranes upon the quays ; greatest depth of water, spring tides, is 22 feet, neaps 17 feet!






iEercfjants antr jaanufacturrrg,


The only charge made upon shipping is 2d. per ton register for " dockage. Major Hall owns and controls the quays. The exports are cattle and general, and the imports principally coal. Warrenpoint has a water supply conveyed from a distance to a reservoir, provided by the guardians of the Newry Union, as the sanitary authority, at a cost of ^6,000. The town is lighted with gas and is governed by 12 Commissioners under the Towns Improvement Act. Business is largely confined to the Square, the conspicuous features of which are the quays and the railway terminus. There are sustained efforts from year to year to maintain a recreation fund for band and other performances. The town and district are well supplied with churches of different denominations. There is a Church of Ireland at Clonallon, and one at Warrenpoint, in the early English style. It was erected at an expense of over ^800 by Roger Hall, in 1825In 1879 t n e interior was renovated, and new pews, pulpit, reading desk, and Communion rail put in at a cost of £800. Mr. Alex. Wheelan, was the contractor. In March of the present year a new organ was added. The Presbyterian Church, in 1883, under contract with Mr. Wheelan, was provided with a tower and spire, and reseated in pitch pine, at a cost of ^900. A very great change for the better has also been made in the old Catholic Church, by the erection of a fine tower and spire in the Gothic style. A new and beautiful Methodist Church, in memory of Rev. Dr. Coke, was built by Mr. I. H. Cunningham, Newry, in 1885, from designs by Mr. W. J. Watson, architect. It cost £1,500. Dr. Coke, an eloquent clergyman of this deno mination, preached his last sermon at Warrenpoint in the old Methodist Chapel. He died on his way to a distant land to engage in missionary labor. The new church is built on the site of the chapel. Warrenpoint has also a Unitarian-Presbyterian Church. There are several organizations for social purposes, including Orange lodges, Masonic Lodge, Good Templars' Lodge, and a Constitutional Association. A tramway connects the town with Rostrevor, affording a charming ride along the shore for two miles and a-half to the foot of the Mourne Mountains. Bakers—P.

' ISTORICALLY Downpatrickis the most interesting place in the county. The kings of Ullagh made their chief residence here. St. Patrick directed much of his life's labors from its abbty, and his remains were interred in the abbey cemetery. The Danes for nearly 200 years looked with longing eyes upon it, and at intervals during that period fought hard to secure a permanent footing. It was here also that the adventurous Englishman, Sir John De Courcy, planted his standard. The town was originally built upon a cluster of hills commanding a wide range of view. So long as it was an advantage for defensive purposes, the avenues of business ran at a high elevation. At present the chief business thoroughfares are in the valley, in line wilh the public roads from the surrounding country. Market-street, Church-street and the Circular Road, show the great improvement common sense has effected in modern times. Market-street, which contains the railway station, and Church-street have been opened within 35 years. To ensure greater freedom for traffic, a clock tower was removed that had long stood at the junction of Irish, English and Scotch streets. Near it was the old Market House, the site of which is now occupied by the beautiful Assembly Rooms, partly illustrated in the page devoted to Mr. Roden Johnston's Medical Hall. Mr. John Mulholland, D.L., who purchased the town from the late M r. David Stewart Ker, in 1872, built the Assembly Rooms in 1882 at a cost of ,£5,000. The large hall has a seating capacity of 650, and is given for lectures, concerts, and social meetings to the town's people without charge. The Circular Road was opened about 30 years ago. It connects Market-street with Stream-street, and by means of a new road, near the Lunatic Asylum, diverts the traffic from the Ardglass and Killough districts, so as to avoid two very steep hills. The houses in "the low ground" are, for the greater

BTTTEES visit London and the Manufacturing Districts four times every year. The chief feature in this House is the continual increase in the amount of Sales since entering1 into New Premises. This shows the confidence the public place in this system of business. The transactions in the Purchase of Goods are now larger than in years past, so that the Proprietor has increased his Capital in order to pay Cash for all the Goods. The course pursued by R. W. is to ask at once the Lowest Cash Price; and, from his long experience in the Wholesale and Retail Trade, he feels sure that this is the soundest policy, and, in the end, best calculated to secure the confidence of his Patrons and the Public. The Goods in this Establishment are Purchased on exactly the same terms as the besi Wholesale Houses in Dublin or Belfast. R. W. still holds the opinion that parties in the Drapery Trade who Buy on Credit cannot get Value, nor can they give Value to the Public. An Early Call, or Country Orders, will oblige. Goods not in
Stock can be had by Globe Express, or Parcels Post, at once, from London.

part, well built and in good condition. Downpatrick is in the North-eastern part of the county, in the barony of Upper Lecale. It has railway communication with Belfast, from which it is distant 26J miles, English. The Quoile river connects the town with Strangford Lough, and is navigable from a point about a mile to the North-west, by way of Church-street. There is a good quay there, but owing to the presence of a bank outside, between it and deep water, access is difficult. In the present state of the river much trouble is experienced in navigating a vessel of 150 tons burden. One mile further down there is a steamboat quay, built in the time of the Ker family, at which vessels of heavier tonnage have to be lightened. The imports are coal, timber, and salt, and the exports potatoes and grain. The lands of the district are good for pasture and tillage. Potatoes, oats, wheat and flax are the chief crops. Markets are held on Tuesdays and Saturdays. First-rate accommodation has been provided by Mr. Mulholland for market purposes. The charges are nominal, merely for weighing, and id. each on odds and ends. A fair-green, consisting of five statute acres, has also been given by Mr. Mulholland. A fair is held on the first Tuesday of each month. Fifty years ago, some 700 weavers found employment here in the manufacture of linens, and two ale breweries were in full operation. There is now no manufacturing industry carried on extensively. The business of the town is mainly depending upon, and regulated according to the wants of the farmers. BEFORE AND SINCE THE ENGLISH CONNECTION j]S the residence of the kings of Ullagh, Downpatrick was the most important place in the county before the English connection. The original name was Rath Keltair, so styled because it was the fortification or castle of Keltair, otherwise Celtchar. It acquired the name of Downpatrick from Dun (fort) and St. Patrick. The fort still remains in good condition. It would take more than a page to endeavor to give a coherent idea of the changes of name undergone by Downpatrick since the earliest period of its mention in historical records. According to the '' Annals of the Four Masters," it was recognized as the dwelling-place of Celtchar in 4020, A.M. The Celtchar last associated with it lived here at the beginning of the Christian era, and was famous in connection with the Red Branch of Ulster. When St. Patrick arrived in 432, he found it attractive enough for a base of operations, and having converted the reigning prince, Dichu, founded an abbey near the fort, and divided his time between it

and one at Saul, which he also founded, until his death at the latter place in 493, in the 120th year of his age. The Danish burnings and plunderings were carried on at intervals between the years 940 and m i . John DeCourcy arrived in n77, and, by a feat of arms bordering on the miraculous, drove out the Prince, Mac Dunleve, and firmly established himself in possession. His entire force consisted of only 22 men-at-arms and 300 soldiers, and with this he defeated a sustained attempt to dislodge him on the part of Mac Dunleve, at the head of 10,000 men. In the chapter at the beginning of the book, more extensive reference is made to the life of De Courcy at Downpatrick. He built here the first of a large number of castles attributed to him and his followers. The Post Office, called De Courcy Place, occupies a portion of the site. While the foundations were being sunk, an underground passage was discovered, part of which is now used as a coal cellar. An effort was made at the time by the Post Master, Mr. J. R. M'Connell, to organize an exploring party, but before he had succeeded, a depression in the roadway, industriously filled with rubbish by a a road contractor, increased the difficulties too much for ordinary enthusiasm. A fragment of one of the watch-towers is jealously guarded by Mr. James Jordan, Church street, in whose garden it is. King John paid a visit to Downpatrick in 1220, fifteen years after DeCourcy had been succeeded by Hugh DeLacy in the Earldom of Ulster. In 1315 Edward Bruce visited the town, and finding it out of sympathy, burnt a portion and destroyed the abbey. Toward the close of his career he returned on a similar mission, and having done some more burning and plundering, was proclaimed King of Ireland. Con O'Neill/Earl of Tyrone, plundered and partly destroyed the town in 1552, and his son, Shane, destroyed its gates and ramparts in 1554. Col. Bryan O'Neill, in 1641, attacked the refugee Protestants and the natives of the town, and left a bloody record. Gerald, Eleventh Earl of Kildare, received a grant of the monastic possessions at the time of the dissolution. In 1403 Henry IV. confirmed the municipal privileges enjoyed by Downpatrick for a long time previous to that date. The charter empowered it to elect a mayor, bailiffs and common council. It returned two members to the Irish Parliament until the Union, and thereafter one member until 1885. Mr. John Mulholland, D.L., was its last representative. He had held the position for 12 years. In 1829, at a meeting in the old Market House, it was decided to take advantage of the lighting clause of the Towns Improvement Act (9th, Geo IV.) and Commissioners were soon afterward elected- The powers of local government then acquired have not since been exceeded.

authority is vested in the guardians of the poor, and they have been engaged for some years in an earnest effort to find an undoubtedly good source for a water supply. At present, street pumps and wells, none of them very favorably situated, are relied upon to meet the wants of a population which was 3,901 in 1881. To the rest of the county Downpatrick is important as the seat of government. Assizes are held here twice a year. Among the public buildings are the Court House, a handsome edifice, a Convict Prison, built in 1830 at a cost of ,£60,000 ; a Lunatic Asylum, County •Infirmary, and Union Workhouse, references to which will be found in the County Directory. ABBEYS, GRAVE OF ST. PATRICK, AND CHURCHES SHE Cathedral of Down occupies a part of the site of the abbey founded by St. Patrick in the 5th century. It stands at the head of English street on one of the hills included in the ancient municipality, and is partly surrounded by trees, which form a curtain to the main walls and heighten the picturesque effect of the tower as seen from the North-western approach to the town. The see of Down, now amalgamated with that of Connor and Dromore, had its origin here. Nearly every attack made upon Downpatrick, by armed forces, was in part directed against the abbey. It was destroyed and rebuilt a great many times. An oil painting in thea s vestry shows the condition little more than a fragment of the Cathedral in 1795. It w by comparison with the present proportions. On the western side was a round tower, the highest then in the county. Close to it was the grave supposed to have contained the remains of St. Patrick. The grave has been an object of incessant care by Robert Henry Bell, since his appointment as verger and sexton in 1862. Pilgrims and visitors usually carry away some of the earth, and, to maintain the supply and keep up appearances, require considerable attention. The stone, believed to have been originally placed upon it, is broken. For many years the pieces were preserved outside the chancel wall. Now they are placed around the grave, and help strangers to find it. The cathedral is a building of majestic proportions with embattled side walls and buttresses, an embattled, pinnacled tower of great height, and an embattled, pinnacled gable, on the outside of which are three niches with pedestals bearing the effigies of Saints Patrick, Bridget and Columbkill, or to be more correct, the battered remains of them, found after the cathedral had been destroyed by Lord De Grey, Lord Deputy, in 1538, to

punish the abbots of the district, who resisted the assumption of spiritual supremacy by Henry VIII. A few years later Lord De Grey was impeached, and this was one of the acts for which he was condemned and put to death. The cathedral interior consists of nave and aisles. The nave is supported by piers of solid masonry, 6 feet wide and 4£ feet thick. In 1864, under the supervision of the late Dean Woodward, very extensive restorations and improvements were made at a total cost of about ;£ 12,000. The crests of the nobility and gentry who subscribed to the fund were set into the walls in panels, contributing much to the richness of decoration. Among the crests then put up, and since added, are those of the Marquises of Londonderry and Downshire, Lords Dufferin, Bangor, Annesley, and Deramore, Lady Sands, Bishop of Down and Connor, Ker, of Montalto; Delecherois, of Donaghadee; Johnston, of Ballykilbeg ; Hamilton, of Killyleagh ; Beauclerc, of Ardglass; Craig-Laurie, of Myra Castle ; Gordon, of .Florida Manor ; Forde, of Seaforde ; Nugent, of Portaferry ; Hall, of Narrow Water Castle ; Stewart, of the Ards; and Woodward, Dean of Down. The expense of rebuilding in 1795 was provided by a grant of £1,000 from the Government and by private subscriptions. It was not reopened for service until 1817, and the tower, which cost £1,900, was not completed until 1^29. The original name of the cathedral was the Holy Trinity ; but it was called St. Patrick's for a long time prior to the reign of James I., who restored the old name. It was recognised as the cathedral of the diocese of Down until 1663. Owing to its dilapidated condition the see was transferred to Lisburn, in that year by Charles II. In 1863, an addition of half an acre was made to the Downpatrick Cathedral Cemetery by the late David S. Ker. The old part is used for the burial of Catholics and Protestants. The abbey of Saul was situated at a short distance to the North-east of Downpatrick. One hundred years ago the remains covered a considerable space. Now a very small fragment only exists. The best authorities agree in the opinion that it was here St. Patrick landed on his second visit to Ireland in the capacity of a missionary. Inch Abbey is about 2^ miles North-west of Downpatrick. It was endowed by De Courcy in 1180, as an atonement for having destroyed the Abbey of Erynagh, which was about two miles, Irish, from Downpatrick. Of the remains, the chancel is the most interesting part. It is heavily covered with ivy. Excavations were made some time since by Major Maxwell, D.L., between the walls of the main building, so that it is now easy to - trace the foundations of the piers which supported the nave.

now remains, included, in addition to the Abbey of St. Patrick, the Irish Monastery, upon the site of the old gaol, the Franciscan Friary, on the site now occupied by the parish Church of Ireland, a Cistercian nunnery, and a priory of friars of the order of St. John the Baptist. The parish Church of Ireland, in Churchstreet, has a low square tower, and a graveyard in which many of the families of the district have burial places. In Scotch-street is the Methodist Church, a plain structure bearing date 1777. The first Presbyterian (Unitarian) Church is in Stream-street. Its chief exterior attraction consists of a mantle of ivy that completely covers the walls. In the interior are three large galleries with ample seating accommodation. A handsome mural tablet commemorates Jos. Nelson, assistant barrister for Longford, who died in 1847. His father, Rev. James Nelson, D.D., was minister of the church. In the cemetery, which is planted with large trees, and has an appearance of considerable antiquity, are family vaults bearing the names of Croskery, Nelson, Martin, Hastings, Perry, Morrison, Quail, Rowen, Wallace, Moore and Gordon. The Presbyterian Church, in Fountain-street, dates from 1826, and cost £900. It was opened for worship in 1827. There is ample space for a cemetery attached. The principal tombs are those of the Young and Dill families. On Mount St. Patrick, an eminence facing the Circular Road, are the Roman Catholic Church and Convent of St. Patrick. The church is built of Scrabo stone in the Gothic style, and stands in tastefully planted terraced grounds, on the site of the old chapel. It has a tower, but no spire. The foundation stone was laid by the late Most Rev. Dr. Dorrian, Bishop of Down and Connor, a native of the parish, in 1868. The church was opened in 1870, and dedicated by the same bishop in 1872. The total cost thus far has reached ,£8,000. It will take about .£3,000 more to complete it. The beautiful altar of Caen stone and Irish marbles was presented by Mr. John Russell. It has statues of St. Patrick, his first convert, and of the four Evangelists. The Stations of the Cross, sculptured in relief, presented by the late Miss A. McMuIlan, of Downpatrick, cost nearly ^300. In the Virgin's chapel is a beautiful stained window, erected to the memory of Very Rev. B. McAulay, P.P., V.G., Downpatrick, by his successor, the present parish priest Very Rev. Patrick O'Kane, P.P..V.F., who was also his curate in the parish for 13 years. The Very Rev. B. McAulay built the Parochial House, but it was afterward enlarged by the Very Rev. P. O'Kane at a cost of /800. The convent is built of brick, lined with blue stone, and cost over £7,000, of which j£4,ooo was bequeathed by John M'llheron,

The balance of the amount expended on the convent buildings was raised at two bazaars held in Downpatrick. The ,£8,000 expended on the church, was raised by the efforts of the Very Rev. P. O'Kane. SOCIETIES, CLUBS, ANTIQUITIES, STRUEL WELLS, &c. the social point of view, Downpatrick compares favorably with the largest town in the county. It has provided itself liberally with means of amusement, in lighter vein, and there is strong evidence of a desire to reach a high plane in the cultivation of mind and body. A most worthy organization in connection with the Stream Street Presbyterian Church gives a stimulus to literary effort. The Rev. David Gordon is President, Mr. H. M. Wilson, Hon. Sec, and Mr. R. J. Quail, Treasurer. In May of the present year a movement was successfully initiated for the establishment of a first-rate centrally situated newsroom. A musical society, having at present about 90 members, has been in existence for 14 years. The conductor is Mr. H. Wilson, cathedral organist ; the secretary, Mr. James Reid, jun.; and the treasurer, Mr. Thos. Belshaw. The Down Nursing Society is one of the merciful organizations in which the ladies take a deep interest. There is a Masonic Hall and two Lodges, an Orange Hall and four Lodges, and a Lodge of Good Templars, established 14 years, and having about 50 members. The muscular energy of the young gentlemen finds development through the agency of a cricket club, and of the young ladies through a lawn tennis club. The cricket club has over 50 members; Mr. F. W. Crawley is captain, Mr. John Mitchell, secretary, and Mr. R. Macllwaine, treasurer. It has a good record against the principal clubs in Ulster. The tennis club is connected with the cricket club. It has two grass courts. There is a great deal of tennis playing in private courts throughout the district, and among the ladies are some excellent players. As the head-quarters of the Down Hunt, the town has acquired considerable fame. Particulars concerning this institution, and of the steeple-chases annually held at Downpatrick will be found in the chapter on Hunting, Coursing, and Racing' for which see index. The stone monuments, and druidical remains in the district are very interesting. At about a quarter of a mile from town is •' Samson's stone," on the property of Mr. Mulholland, Mr.


Jos. M'Cartan, tenant. At Raholp, about 3 miles, Irish, are several large stones, one of which is known as the Lord's table. Two druidical circles, almost complete, are within easy access, one near Ligamaddy and the other in the townland of Ballyalton. The former consists of two circles, the inner about 19 yards in diameter, having 22 stones, and the outer 35 yards in diameter with 49 stones. Some of the stones are over 6 feet high. The Ballyalton circle is 43 feet in diameter. It has 8 standing stones. An avenue 32 feet long and 4 feet wide is formed with stones 7 to 8 feet long. One mile east of the town are the Struel springs, four in number, famous in former times for the healing qualities of their waters. They are still, to some extent, visited on St. John's Eve. Duns Scotus, called the subtle doctor, was born at Downpatrick in 1274. AUCTIONEERS. Jordan, Jas., Church st Lithgow, R. T., Saul st Moore & Moffelt, Market st Smylh, J. H., Irish st BAKERS.

IN THE DOWNPATRICK DISTRICT. 6fflt,DDRESSES of letters to persons residing in a sub-postal ^ ^ district should include the head office thus : Cloughey, Downpatrick. ARDGLASS. j]RDGLASSis6miles, Irish, South-east of Downpatrick, the nearest railway station. It is on the sea coast, facing Peel, Isle of Man, from which it is distant about 28 miles. Holyhead is about 60 miles. The land of the district is good for pasture and tillage. Potatoes, oats and wheat are the chief crops. Some flax and barley are also grown. Downpatrick is the market town. Mr. Aubrey De Vere Beauclerc, J.P. is the owner, and his agent is Mr. Beauchamp Johnson of Downpatrick. Ardglass had a population of 691 in 1881. The name is derived from a green hill of conical shape, situated to the South-west of the village. It is called the ward, is handsomely planted, and is surmounted by a tower, used as a look-out point by the coastguards. From here a splendid view is obtained of the surrounding country. Ardglass was at an early period in the history of the British connection, one of the most important of the North of Ireland seaports. It had an extensive foreign trade, conducted by a London company, in the time of Henry VI. The town was then incorporated, and elected a mayor. It also had a port admiral. The customs revenue in the reign of Henry VIII. averaged ^5,000 per annum. Buildings in the castellated style, part of which still exist, were used for warehouses. A sale of the customs privileges was made to the government by the Earl of Kildare, owner of the town, in 1637, and there was a transfer of certain rights to Belfast and Newry. The decay of Ardglass as a seaport soon followed. As a fishing station its importance has been steadily maintained. Fifty years ago, during the herring season, from 300 to 500 sailing luggers were frequently in harbor at the same time, disposing of their fish to sloop captains

209 who usually made two trips a week to Liverpool or Dublin, and realized from £zo to ,£50 on each cargo. This description would suit the state of things at present prevailing from season to season, as to the number of luggers engaged in fishing. The difference is in the method of removing the catch. This is now done by steamers. The fish is carried to Holyhead. The luggers provision at Ardglass, and remain over from Saturday evening to Monday morning. In 1814 a pier was constructed at a cost of ,£14,000, and in 1834 an additional sum of .£25,000 was spent upon works in the outer harbor ; Sir John Rennie was the engineer. It was then supposed that the requisite degree of safety had been attained for vessels of large tonnage entering the harbor, but it took only a very short time to demonstrate the error. To make it a first-rate harbor of refuge, it would cost about ,£100,000 more, and would require the erection of a pier from the opposite side of the harbor, and a cons'derable amount of hard dredging. The outer harbor is under the control of the Board of Works, and a dock in the inner harbor belongs to Mr. Beauclerc. The merchants of the village are very much dissatisfied with the charges levied by the Board of Works on trading vessels. For merely passing through the outer harbor to the inner harbor there is a toll collected of 6d. per ton register. The fishing luggers pay los. per year each for the use of the outer harbor, and 7s. 6d. each, extra, for using Mr. Beauclerc's dock in winter. Fishing vessels entering after the 1st of September only have to pay half dues. The charges levied by the Board of Works on trading vessels are 6d. per ton register, and ijd. per ton wharfage on cargo, coal and salt. A vessel loading potatoes has to pay 4d. per ton cargo ; nothing on register. The tolls are considered too high, and it is believed that the prosperity of the port, from the trading point of view, is retarded by this fact. Reference to the sketch of Killough, two miles to the southward, will shew that the charges there are almost nominal by camparison. The vessels trading at Ardglass range from 70 to 85 tons register. Coal and salt ale the imports, and potatoes the export. The depth of water in the harbor, spring-tides, ranges from 25 to 31 feet. A vessel of 300 tons register could enter in good weather, at high tide. A charge of two pence per ton register nothing on cargo—is made on vessels using Mr. Beauclerc's dock, and there is no limit as to time in discharging. The castles of Ardglass, of which there are several remaining in good condition, have historic associations. Jordan's Castle is the most interesting. It stands in the centre of the village. Simon Jordan, the owner, in the 17th century successfully defended himself in it for three years against the assaults of

21 I Con O'Neill's followers. He was relieved by Lord Mountjoy on the 17th of June, 1611. Horn Castle was once occupied by Major Beauclerc, the descendant of William Ogilvie, who bought Ardglass from Lord Lecale, one of the Leinster family. It is novvuntenanted. King's Castle, beautifully situated on the hillside, is at present tenanted by Mr. Charles Russell, J.P. A smaller castle, standing near it, and called " The Tower," was joined to King's Castle, forming a structure of imposing dimensions. Cow'd Castle, is so called to preserve an affinity with Horn Castle, and Margaret's Castle are still in evidence. As a seaside resort, Ardglass has also attractions, and there are many places in the vicinity well worth visiting, including the Cave, and old Church of Ardtole.

CLOUGHEY. ||LOUGHEY has a population of about 150. It is a fishing village in the barony of Upper Ards. 14 miles, Irish, from Downpatrick, and 4 miles, Irish, from Portaferry. The bay on which it stands, marked "Cloghy' ' on the map, forms a half circle, i\ miles from point to point. The beach is clean sand and has only one obstruction, a small rock almost midway, called after some celebrated person of the name of Charlie. There is a good chance for surf-bathing. Nine fishing luggers belong to Cloughey, and about 30 row boat fishermen live here. The herring fishing is good off the coast in favorable seasons. There is a natural harbor with about 10 feet of water in spring tides. Coasting vessels discharge coal, and take in potatoes and paving stones. The land of the district is fair for tillage. Potatoes, oats and wheat are the principal crops. Kirkistown Castle is about half a mile from Cloughey. The landlord of the district, Mr. Montgomery, has lately had it repaired. Coast Guard—SI.

KILLOUGH. JJILLOUGH. in the barony of Upper Lecale, called "the Garden of Ireland," had a population of 748 in 1881. It is on the sea coast, 5 miles, Irish, South-east of Downpatrick, the nearest railway station. The land of the district is used in about equal proportion for pasture and tillage. Lord Bangor is the owner. Potatoes, wheat, and oats are the principal crops. Some flax is grown. The fishermen, of whom there are about 50,fishin summer in sailing yawls and row boats for herrings, and go to sea in winter. Some of the


older men fish all the year round. Cod, whiting, haddock, congor eels, and mackerel are caught. There is a pier at Killough, belonging to Lord Bangor, which has at the deepest point, 11 feet of water at spring tides. Vessels of 200 tons burden, with light draught have discharged in safety. The imports are coal and artificial manures. The exports, oats, potatoes, and wheat. For use of quay the charge per ton register is i^d. ; nothing on cargo in or out. Fishing boats are exempted from toll. Foreign vessels are required to pay double rates. There is a fixed charge for anchorage when vessels do not go to the quay. Over £18,000 has been Bpent upon the harbor. The principal feature of the village is one broad street, planted with shade trees, producing a most agreeable effect in summer. St. John's Point, situated a short distance to the South-east, has the ruins of a preceptory of Knights Hospitallers. Several springs in the neighborhood possess distinctive features. Shield's Alms Houses, 24 in number, are in the village. The founder made a fortune in trade at Liverpool. One of the qualifications for admission is that the applicant must have an income. Mr. Geo.

PORTAFERRY. |]ORTAFERRY deserves to be classed among the most charmingly picturesque places in Ireland. It is over 7 miles from Downpatrick on the Eastern side of the inlet, from the sea to Strangford Lough, and is communicated with by means of a ferry from the village of Strangford on the western side. It had a population of 1,647 in 1881. Soon after the settlement of DeCourcy at Downpatrick, the importance of the point of land forming the site of the town, was made manifest to the progenitor of the Savage family, who was one of DeCourcy's followers. He built a castle for defensive purposes, the ruins of which still exist. It was so strong, and so well garrisoned that it successfully resisted all the sieges of , the Irish chieftains. During the Rebellion of 1798 the yeomanry came into collision with the rebels in the Market Square of Portaferry and compelled them to retreat. The present Market House, a substantial building, was used on the occasion by the yeomanry. Fifty years ago there was a good weekly market on Saturdays. Now it is merely nominal. There is a pier, owned by Gen. Nugent. In spring tides the water is 14 feet at the deepest part, and 10 feet at lowest neap. The chief import is coal, and the exports are potatoes and grain. It is about 3 miles from the bar to Portaferry, and the charge for pilotage is from ; / . to £1, according to agreement, and to the size of the vessel. There are 8 pilots on the lough. A very strong current is produced by the tide in the inlet. The depth of water on the bar is fully 3 fathoms. Although there has been a considerable outlay upon the pier at Portaferry from time to time, the charge on vessels continues to be only 2d. per ton register ; nothing on cargo. Eight luggers and about 20 rowboats for fishing belong here. The luggers go to the herring and mackerel grounds, and the rowboats are used in winter for catching codling, whiting, lobsters, &c. The town is supplied with gas by a local limited liability company, of which Mr. John Ringland is secretary. Mr. Robert Smith is manager of the works. The water is brought from wells to fountains, conveniently situated, and a charge is made of 2d. in the £ valuation, above £4. There is a sanitary rate of 3d. in the £• The places of worship include a Church of Ireland, Presbyterian Church. Methodist Church and Roman Catholic Church. Portaferry House, the residence of Gen. Nugent, stands in a beautifully wooded demesne on the

215 verge of the town, and commands a fine view of the lough. At the entrance gate, in one of the principal thoroughfares, are the ruins of Templecranny church. The bell tower was stripped of its heavy ivy mantle about 3 years ago during a fierce storm. It is r.ow fairly well covered again. In the yard attached are the burial places of Protestants and Catholics. Within 2 miles, Irish, of the town there is a druidical circle, about 25 feet in circumference. It is on the farm of Mr. John McNabb, of Keentagb, and is in the vicinity of Quintin Castle. Among the attractions at Portaferry during the summer season is an annual regatta for sail and row boats, managed by Mr. Geo. E. Boiven, J.R, agent to Gen. Nugent. The cricket club is of long standing. It has about 24 members. Mr. R. F. Parks is secretary, and Mr. F. H. O'Ryan, treasurer. There is a Ladies' Clothing Society in connection with the Presbyterian Church, an Orange Hall, a Masonic Lodge, and a branch of the National League. The land of the district is good for pasture and tillage. Potatoes, oats, wheat and flax are grown. Within a mile of the town from 50 to 60 persons are employed in a potato and soup tinning factory. A fair is held on the second Tuesday of each month. At about 4 miles East of Portaferry, is a burial groand with small remains of a building, which, according to tradition, once belonged to a wealthy and extensive abbey. Two miles to the South-east is Tara Hill on which there is an earthen fort. Half a mile further east is Tara Bay. The Priory of Eynes, according to Harris, once occupied a prominent position in the parish of Ardquin, on the way from Portaferry to Belfast. It was seized during the War between England and France, and granted in 1411 by Henry IV. to Thomas Cherle. The bishops of Down, for more than 200 years afterward, made it a residence. Ardkeen is 3 miles north by east from Portaferry. Here are the foundations of a castle, erected by Raymond Savage, in 1196. In 1567 Shane O'Neill endeavoured to take possession, but had such poor luck that he paid no further attention to the Ards above Ardkeen. Auctioneer—H. M'Grath Baker—John Ringland Bank— Belfast, W.

jJTRANGFORD had a population of 434 in 1881. Downpatrick, its market town and nearest railway station, is 7 miles Irish to the South-west. Lord De Ros owns the village, and divides ownership of the district with Lord Bangor. The lands are good for pasture and tillage. Potatoes, oats, wheat and flax are the chief crops. Strangford is situated on the left bank of the inlet to the lough, the name of which it bears. Along the shore, within a mile, are three castles, erected by DeCourcy and his followers. Most prominent among them is Audley's Castle, on a point of land North by West. Strangford Castle is in the village. The resi-


dence of Lord De Ros, Old Court, is delightfully situated, at a slight elevation above the shore line, which is marked by square ivy-covered towers, winding walks, ornamental grounds, and a private chapel, at the service in which the villagers are welcome to attend. Further along the shore, toward the sea, at FerryQuarter, are the house and grounds of Major Nugent. Lord Bangor"s splendid demesne and mansion lie to the west, and within a short distance, ori the way to Downpatrick, is IsleO-Valla, the handsome residence of Capt. The Hon. Somerset Ward. Strangford has a pfter belonging to Lord De Ros. At spring-tide the depth of water here ranges from 11 to 15 feet. A charge of 2d. per ton register is made on vessels discharging; nothing on cargo. Coal is the chief import, and potatoes the export. Vessels of the largest burden can pass through the inlet from the sea to Strangford Lough, but not a little care is required in navigation, owing to the rapidity with which the tide runs in and out, and the presence of rocks near the entrance. A great sea battle was fought at Strangford between the English and Scotch in 1400, with considerable loss to the former. Kilclief Castle is about two miles to the South-east of Strangford. It was the palace of the bishops of Down in ancient times. In the vicinity was an abbey, presided over by St. Eugene and St. Neill, in the time of St. Patrick. Strangford is in the parish of Ballyculter. C.I. (private chapel of Lord de Ros)—Rev. Jas. Hogan, minister Coast Guard—Capt. J. Richards, R.N., D.o.: J. Helman, c.B. Dispensary—Dr. F. P.

' L T H O U G H Banbridge cannot claim to be as ancient and historic as some of the county towns, it has done more than any of them to keep the staple industry of Ulster to the front in the world's markets. The lown forms part of the parish of Seapatrick, and is in the barony of Upper Iveagh, 10 miles, Irish, North-north-east of Newry, 20 miles South-south-east of Belfast, and 60 miles North of Dublin. Originally it was called Ballyvally, the change of name having been brought about through the erection of a bridge over the Bann at this point in 1712. The new mail coach road from Dublin toBelfastthen diverged from the old road which crossed the Bann at Huntley Glen, further North. It was at the latter named place, June nth, 1690, that the army of King William forded the river on its march to the Boyne. Banbridge had a population of 5,609 in 1881. Fifty years previously the total number was only 2,469. The town is included in the Downshire estate, and is surrounded by a Sjood farming district. From its situation on the side of a hill, overlooking the fertile and picturesque valley of the Bann, the first view impresses a stranger most favorably; particularly if he enters by way of Laurencetown, and has an opportunity to glance in passing at the many splendid mills and bleach works lining the river banks. The principal thoroughfare of Banbridge includes Bridge and Newry streets. Until 1832, it was very steep. The Market House stood in the centre, and judging from the engraving preserved in the museum, its archi-

tectural attractions did not compensate for the obstruction occasioned by its presence. Simultaneously with the removal of the Market House a cutting was made in the roadway 200 yards long, and 15 feet deep, uniting the streets already mentioned. The excavation was bridged to form a viaduct between Scarva and Rathfriland streets. This very great improvement was completed in 1834 at a cost of i 19,000. A space sufficiently wide to admit of vehicular traffic was reserved at each side of the cutting so as not to interfere with the requirements of the business houses. In 1885 a further improvement was effected by the erection of a new viaduct of one arch, to replace the old. It consists mainly of blue stone and granite, and the parapet walls are surmounted by four handsome gas lamps. The old bridge was only 23 feet wide, and the new one is 47 feet. Mr. Ml. M'Cartan, of Lisnaree, was the builder, and the engineer was Mr. Wm. M'Keown, assistant County Surveyor, -and Town Surveyor. Towards the total cost, ,£419 19s. 6d., the trustees of the Marquis of Downshire contributed £100. The gas-lamps were erected by the Town Commissioners. Near the bridge, on the Scarva-street corner of Bridge-street, a Market House was erected by the Marquis of Downshire instead of the old one. It was finished in 1834 at a cost of .£2,000, but is more remarkable for solidity than architectural elegance. I understand that it is soon to be remodeled from a design by Mr. Wm. M'Keown, C.E., which includes a hip-post roof, and conical clock tower. It occupies a central position in the business quarter of the town. A market place, used for the sale of butter and eggs is adiacent. Victoria street has the market place for general produce. Opposite is the Court House, the handsomest edifice of its kind in Down. It is in the Gothic-Italian style, consists of amain building and wings, and was completed in 1873 at a cost of ^2.465. The site was given by the Marquis of Downshire. In the basements are cells for prisoners. Quarter Sessions for the trial of civil bills are held here, but criminal cases;, higher in degree than may be disposed of by summary jurisdiction at petty sessions, are sent to Newry. The streets on the Western and Eastern sides of the river are well built, some of the houses showing much taste in construction and decoration. THE GOVERNMENTAL SYSTEM, MARKETS, WATER SUPPLY, &c. IN the 14th of July, 1865, Banbridge was brought under the provisions of the Towns Improvement (Ireland) Act, by announcement in the Dublin Gazette. The present Lord Kimberly, then Lord Woodehouse, was

Viceroy, and Sir Robert Peel Chief Secretary, at the time. The Town Commissioners are 15 in number. They appoint a chairman once a year, but he does not excercise magisterial powers as at Warrenpoint, although there is a town court presided over by county magistrates of the district. The first attempt at town government was made under the Act passed at the instigation of the tax-payers of Newry in 1828. It was not taken advantage of until 1834. The Marquis of Downshire, under a patent, dated 1767, had power to hold a weekly market and five fairs annually in Banbridge. Early in the history of the town, when simple customs prevailed everywhere else, Banbridge was no worse off in this respect than other places, but after it came to fully appreciate the dignity of local government, the flaws of the market system became apparent, and the rectification was only delayed because of the acquisition of the sanitary authority by the Board of Guardians under the Act of 1874. After much delay and inconsiderate opposition, the sanitary authority came at last into the hands of the Town Commissioners, who on the 25th of May, 1881, received from the Downshire trustees, with the sanction of the Local Government Board, a transfer of the powers embraced in the patent of 1767, and a lease of the tolls at ,£100 a year. Up to that time the markets were held on the streets. Immediately after the transfer, the Board of Works advanced ^4,000 to the Comrnissioners, repayable by sinking fund in 30 years. Suitable market places were then prepared and opened in 1882. The market under the patent was held on Mondays. Now there are markets on Tuesdays and Fridays also. On Monday for pork, flax, grass seed, fowl, butter and eggs; on Tuesday hay, straw, grain and turnips ; on Friday pork, hay and straw. The markets are usually well attended, and have steadily improved under the new management. Everything is done with a view to the encouragement of buyers and sellers. In proof of this assertion there is set forth the fact that in 1885, the tolls from all sources came to ^650 5s. od, whereas the expenses for conducting the markets, and the interest on loan, came to .£690 2s. 8d., showing a loss of .£39 17s. 8d. Fairs are held on the first Monday of every month for cattle and sheep, and for horses and cattle on January 12th, the first Monday in April, June 9th, August 26th, and first Monday in November. The horse fairs of Banbridge, long and justly celebrated, continue to maintain their prestige. A quarterly hiring fair for servants is also a feature. An extra sum of £ 1,000 has been borrowed from the Board of Works, and has been expended in improvements to sidewalks and roadways. Gas of good quality has been supplied by private enterprise, and it now only requires an abundance of pure water for domestic purposes to almost

225 complete the full measure of the people's wants. Pumps, not always reliable for purity, do duty at present in nearly all the streets. This subject has occupied a share of public attention for about seventeen years, and during that time various sources have been suggested. It is understood that the Town Surveyor, Mr. McKeown, O.E., is preparing a scheme which may be regarded with favor. During the present year, Mr. Geo. Logan, T.C., has succeeded in gaining considerable public support in favor of an extension of the town boundary. The object is to allow the owners of several large mills and bleacheries, within a radius of a mile and a half, to share in the town taxes. The gentlemen interested on the other side, at a meeting held for the purpose, gave expression to their opinion in this manner— " Resolved that we bind ourselves to oppose by every legitimate means the extension of the town boundary of Banbridge. and that we will subscribe according to our valuation whatever expense is incurred thereby." The very latest effort on the part of M r. Logan is in the direction of separation from the county. The town at present is under the control of the County Grand Jury in the matter of road repairs, maintenance of prisoners, lunatics, &c. It pays about ,£1.400 on its valuation, and Mr. Logan thinks half this sum would be saved if it undertook to act independently. CHURCHES AND CEMETERIES. [JNE of the finest features of the town is the episcopal Church of Ireland. It stands in ample grounds, handsomely planted, on the Eastern side of the Bann, and is seen to advantage from a public square, the existence of which began with its foundation. The original church of Seapatrick was too far away from the town for convenience sake, and a new one was built in 1834.. It cost .£3.000 or ,£110 more than the estimate. Of this amount the Ecclesiastical Commissioners gave £ 1.500, and Lord Downshire, ^600. The remainder was made up by subscriptions, chiefly within the parish. Since then improvements have been made internally and externally, until it has come to be a most symmetrical edifice. Agraceful and substantial tower, with spire, rises from the front, and a double transept gives amplitude to the outlines. The interior is paved in small red tiles, which, near the choir, are beautifully set with glazed and engraved tiles of larger size. The nave is inclosed by two rows of handsome stone pillars with rich capitals of different design. A double faced organ of large size and splendid tone, is fitted to the right side of the choir, whose carved seats and rich appointments, are the chief

227 beauty of the church. A brass lectern, the gift of Canon Hayes and his brothers, and a pulpit in memory of Rev. Daniel Dickinson, are beautiful works, the latter being elaborately carved Caen stone and marble. Rev. Daniel Dickinson, M.A., was for thirty-eight years rector of the parish, and is further brought to the memony of the parishioners by a finely executed bas-relief portrait in marble, on the left wall of the chancel. The chancel steps are of polished white marble, and the rail brass. On the left of the pulpit a mural tablet, carved in Caen stone, commemorates Capt. F. R. M. Crozier, R.N., the arctic hero. The efiect of the interior as a whole is singularly unpretentious, yet abounding in rich and appropriate ornamentation. Very Rev. Henry Stewart, D.D., Dean of Dromore, is rector. The Methodist Church, on the Western side of the Bann, is seen from the grounds of the Episcopal Church. It faces Downshire Road. The principal material used in construction is blue stone, and it has sandstone dressings. The front is ornamented with pinnacles and surmounted by a pinnacle tower. It was built in 1870 from the plan of Mr. Robert Glass, a native of Banbridge, resident in the United States. The amount expended was £2,000. Mr. Glass gave ,£1,000 of this and engaged to foot the entire bill, but owing to a sudden reverse of fortune he was unable to fulfil his promise at the time. Within the last 8 years improvements have been made in the interior. The old Methodist Chapel, in Gospel Lane, dates from 1805, and the Primitive Methodist Chapel, in Scarva street, now out of use, from 1830. Rev. James Carson is minister. Presbyterianism at Banbridge in 1720 began upon the basis of a congregation. Previous to that time it was connected with the congregation of Magherally. The Scarva-street church was erected in 1830. It has a handsome front and porch, composed of four Corinthian pillars, and stands in terraced grounds, on the right of which is a comfortable manse, and on the left the church school-house. Rev. Robert Anderson was the first minister. He died in 1872, after having held the position 42 years. In the vestibule of the church a mural tablet bears evidence of the affection borne for him by his congregation. In 1877 the church interior was rompl' tely remodeled, the seats modernized, a platform, with movable desk, substituted for the pulpit, and the plaster ceiling replaced by recessed paneling. Rev. Thomas Boyd is the present minister. The Bannside Presbyterian Church was erected in 1866. It faces the Ballydown Road, and has small well-kept grounds. The front is plain. About 12 years ago some improvements were made in the interior. It was receiled, and the pews remodeled. Rev. I. Scott is minister.

229 The Presbyterian (Unitarian) Church, Downshire Eoad, was built in 1844. It is a handsome edifice with massive front, supported by four columns in the Ionic style. The interior has large seating capacity. Rev. C. H. Osier is the present minister. In 1846 the Baptist Church was built. It occupies a prominent position near the head of Newiy-street. It was remodeled in 1884, a new front and clock-tower, 54 feet high, put up, and the seating capacity improved. Rev. S. J. Banks is minister. Previous to 1835, and for some time afterward, Banbridge formed part of the Roman Catholic parish of Tullylish. The Church was built in the year mentioned. It is situated upon a gentle eminence in Dromore-street. Exterior and interior improvements have been made from time to time in recent years. It has a turreted gable. A detached bell-tower, of good design, is on the left of the edifice. The interior of the Church is ample in size and neat and simple in decoration. A rural monument, in black and white marbles, commemorates the Rev. Thomas Henry O'Brien, C.C., Newry, 1871. Very Rev. John O'Brien, V.G., is parish priest. There are six Cemeteries in the parish of Seapatrick. Two of them are interesting because of their age, and the local associations attaching. That at Seapatrick village has the gable of the old church, ivy-covered. The graves are sheltered by some fine trees. In Church-street is the Meeting House Green, containing the burial-places of many of the families of the parish. The Catholic Cemetery, entered from the Dromore Road, was consecrated in 1872 by the Most Rev. Dr. Leahy, Bishop of Dromore. It is tastefully laid out. In the middle there is a double circular terrace, surmounted by a large Celtic cross, placed there at the time of the consecration. The public cemetery, available by all denominations, is situated at a distance of less than a quarter of a mile from town. It consists of 2 acres, 3 roods, and 34 perches, statute measure. It was laid out in 1882, by Mr. M'Keown, C.E., Town Surveyor, and is under the control of a Board, appointed conjointly by the Poor Law Guardians and Town Commissioners. Mr. Win. MacCormac is the secretary. The Union Workhouse is in Linen Hall-street. It stands in grounds consisting of about 11 statute acres. The land is cultivated by the paupers, and the crops, consisting almost entirely of vegetables, are consumed in the house. There are 23 electoral divisions in the Banbridge Union, 19 of which are in Down, and 4 in Armagh. At the time of my visit, in January, 580 persons were receiving out-door relief in sums varying from 1/- to 5/per week each, making a total of ,£33, which is about the average expenditure, under this head, all the year round.

THE MUSEUM, BANN PEARLS, CROZIER MONUMENT, SOCIETIES, &c. |NDER the auspices of the Banbridge Literary and Mutual Improvement Society, quite a respectable collection of antiquities has been made. The Museum is in one of the. wings of the Court House, and is well worthy a visit. The society recently held its 33rd annual meeting, when the following officers were elected : Messrs. T. D. Card, solr., chairman; Robert Pavidson, vice-chairman; Thos. Robinson, secretary ; J. Walker, librarian, and Saml. Watt, curator. The Museum has a portrait, in oil, of Bishop Percy of Dromore, 1782-1811, a silk banner of the Loughbrickland Loyalists, 1782, lent by Miss Trevor ; an old musket stock and pike found in the Bann, 1863 ; a pike of 1798, dug up at the sinking of the foundations of the Bridge-street house, 1850 ; several bronze and stone celts ; flint and bronze arrow-heads ; pike-heads of 1798; cavalry buckles, Williamite period ; breastplates of Loughbrickland Volunteers, and Royal Castlewellan Infantry ; Seapatrick Parish poor badge ; 2 brass Dutch snuff boxes, 1690; a cinerary urn found in a cairn on Pecomet Mountain, 1873; three large blue, flowered, earthenware jugs, which belonged to the Banbridge Reading Society in 1795, presented by the representatives of the late Mr, Alexander M'Mullan, 1876. A case of prepared yarns and threads illustrates the improvements in flax manufacture. A number of steel engravings, dated 1783, illustrate the primitive methods of flax cultivation, preparation and manufacture at Scarva. One of the series, dedicated to Viscount Dungannon, presents a view of Banbridge as it appeared in 1783. It shows the old Market House, which then stood upon the site of the Bridge-street Viaduct. A scene on market day represents a number of men in old-fashioned costume, selling brown linens to bleachers similarly habited. In addition to the collection of antiquities belonging to the county, the museum cases are fairly well supplied with exhibits of miscellaneous character from Eastern and Western countries. At a period when the Bann was not utilized for power purposes, it was famous throughout Ireland for its pearl fisheries. A species of mussel, very large in size, throve well in its waters, especially in the vicinity of Banbridge, and produced pearls abundantly. As an article of food it gained popularity only among the peasantry, for the reason that it required very high

233 flavoring to make it palatable. The pearls were of a pale brownish hue, and resembled those found in England and France. In the last century the fishery had dwindled to merely nominal proportions, and now an occasional shell, taken from the bed of the river, serves to maintain an interest in the subject among the people of the town and district. Several of the shells are on view in the museum. In a monument, sufficiently meritorious as a work of art, to attract attention anywhere, Banbridge honors one of the most distinguished of her sons. It commemorates the services of Francis Rawdon Moira Crozier, Capt. R.N., and F.R.S., who lost his life in the Polar Expedition, led by Sir John Franklin, J845. He was second in command on board Her Majesty's Ship "Terror," which left England on the 22nd of May in that year. The object was to discover the North-west Passage. Evidence was obtained by Sir Leopold McClintock which set at rest all doubts as to the fate of Sir John and his associates. After the death of the former in June, 1847, the chief command devolved on Captain Crozier. He abandoned the ships in the year following, and made for the great Fish River. Had he survived, the honor of the discovery of the North-west Passage would belong alone to a son of Down, instead of to a son of Wexford, Sir Robert McClure, who made it in 1851. The monument to Capt. Crozier stands in Church Square, opposite the house in which he passed the years of his boyhood, having been born in 1796. Dr. Hawthorn occupies the house, which by it broad steps and generous breadth of doors and windows, is easily distinguishable from the surroundings. The base of the monument is formed of sandstone blocks with projecting corners, on each of which is a polar bear, sculptured in the conventional attitude of the animal. Ships in relief adorn the inscription panels. The pedestal is supported by eight marble pillars, in different colors, the product of Irish quarries. Upon this is a statue, representing the hero in full naval uniform. In the Church of Ireland opposite, a mural tablet, with elaborate inscription, also commemorates the deeds of Captain CroziA Banbridge h a ^ b goodly number of organizations for mental and physical culture, and for benevolent purposes. Reference has already been made in this chapter to the Banbridge Literary and Mutual Improvement Society. It may be added that it has a library of nearly 1,000 volumes. The rooms are in Bridge-street. The Banbridge Literary Society and Debating Club holds its sessions at the Court House. It was established about 6 years ago.

Smyth, J.P., Brookfield, treasurer; notwithstanding which it is non-sectarian. Efforts for the promotion of habits of temperance are being energetically made in the churches of Banbridge, each having a separate organization. Independent of all these is the Women's Temperance Union. The Good Templars have three Lodges in the district, " Bulwark," 82, and "Patriot,"' 158, at BanViridge. The former had, in February of the present year, 42 members ; Mr. Robert Shannon was then W.C.T. The latter, at the same time, had 55 members; Mr. Jos. Walker was W.C.T.

Mr. E. S. Mills is conductor ; Mr. Robt. Shooter, secretary ; and Mr. Jas. Craig, treasurer. The town has also two brass bands. A strong effort for the promotion of histrionic taste was made in 1885. In that year the Banbridge Dramatic Club was established. The Downshire

237 Trustees looked with favor upon this development, and granted the free use of the Town Hall for the rehearsals and meetings. The first publicperformances were given in January of the present year. Mr. John McDowell wrote a prologue for the occasion. The drama, " Chimney Corner," and the farces, " Barney the Baron," and " Borrowed Plumes," were represented during a season of three nights. Mr. M. W. Blackwood was acting manager, Mr. Saml. Hill, stage manager, Mr. John George Thomson, secretary, and Mr. Hugh Neill Simms, treasurer. The Banbridge Cricket and Athletic Club has secured a foremost place as the promoter of annual athletic meetings. It was established about 7 years ago, and has scored no end of triumphs. The grounds in the vicinity of the town contain something over 3 acres, and have what is said to be the fastest grass course in Ireland. At the sports held in August, 1885, prizes, aggregating in value £%o, were given to the successful competitors. Mr. John Lindsay, J.P., is president; Messrs. J. Livingstone and N. D. Ferguson, secretaries, and Mr. M. W. Blackwood, treasurer. In 1882 the Banbridge Lawn Tennis Club was established in connection with it. It has three grass courts, and several good players, including ladies. Mr. C. A. Hayes is secretary. Mr. M. Larkin was secretary of the Athletic Club meeting, 1886. Football is represented by the Banbridge Academy and Millmount Clubs. Mr. E. Pyper was secretary of the former at the beginning of the year, and the officers of the latter are:— Mr. Wm. Scott, captain ; Mr. A. Maxwell, secretary, and Mr. Wm. Taylor, treasurer. A Banbridge Coursing Club, established this year, had its inception at a holiday match held at Christmas, 1885, in a field beside the Castlewellan Road. Reference to the Farming Society will be found in the beginning of the book, for which see index. A creamery company was established this year to give the farmers the benefit of the modern methods of butter-making. A Conservative Association is the latest acquirement. Mr. Wm. Smyth, J.P., Brookfield, is president, Mr. Robt. Davidson, secretary, and Mr. Saml. Hill, Solitude, treasurer. LINEN MANUFACTURE, BLEACHING AND FINISHING.

works, give employment to about 400 people. Of this number 150 are at Ballydown, and the remainder are handloom weavers, living in Down and Armagh. The enterprise was begun by a Mr. William Hudson in 1740. He was well known in different parts of the world. Messrs. Crawford & Lindsays' purchased his interest about the year 1840. The linens manufactured include the finest productions of the handloom, and are sent to the principal European and American markets. They are bleached and finished on the premises. The bleach green in constant use consists of 40 acres, with power to extend to 150, according to requirement. The buildings are extensive, and are picturesquely situated on the Bann. Water and steam, in conjunction, are used for power purposes. Bleaching is also done largely for other manufacturers. At present the firm consists of Mr. John Lindsay, J.P., Ballydown; Mr. Walter Lindsay, Tullyhenan House; Mr. Geo. C. Lindsay, London ; Mr. David Lindsay, London; and Mr. J. C. Lindsay, Newtownards. The London office is at No 1. Angel Court, Friday Street, E.C. Messrs. James Anderson & Co. have their bleachery also at Ballydown, at a distance of about three quarters of a mile from town. They confine their efforts exclusively to linen yarns, and bleach all grades from brown to full white. Messrs. William Malcolmson & Co., of Portlaw, County Waterford, built the works some 20 years ago. The Banbridge Bleaching Company succeeded Messrs. Malcolmson, and in 1884 Messrs. James Anderson & Co. came into possession. They employ 30 people, and use steam as an auxiliary to the water power. The Railway Company's conveyances promptly attend to the delivery and shipping of goods to and from the works. Brookfield is about an English mile from town. Here are situated the Smyths' Weaving Factory, and the concerns of Messrs. Brice Smyth & Son. The latter named firm has been engaged in the manufacture, by handlooms, of fine linen for shirt fronts, over 100 years, giving employment to more than 300 of the cottage weavers of the surrounding country. The Smyths' Weaving Co. was established in 1882, and manufactures fine and coarse linens by power looms, using steam for driving purposes, and providing employment for about 250 people. Mr. Wm. Smyth, J.P., who heads both industries, resides at Brookfield House, in handsomely planted grounds, within view of the factory. The Edenderry Linen Factory, of Messrs. Thomas Ferguson and Co., Limited, occupies an elevation on the Western side of the Bann, and with Edenderry House, the beautiful residence of Mr. Thomas Ferguson, J.P., managing director, forms one of the most conspicuous and pleasing features of the town, as seen

241 from the railway station. The machinery is driven by steam. Weaving by power looms, of which there tare 285, was begun in 1866. Previous to that time, from 1845, h e wo& had been done by handlooms. Medals for excellence of manufacture have been awarded by International Exhibitions at London, Paris, Vienna, and Philadelphia. The buildings cover a large space, and are constructed with the view of securing plenty of light and abundant means of ventilation. About 300 people are employed, chiefly females. The Manchester office is at 51 Mosley Street, and the London office at 24a Wood Street, E.C. All kinds of household linens and damasks are manufactured by the Company, and are sold without brand, to the wholesale trade throughout the United Kingdom and the United States. Messrs. Wm. Walker & Co. employ 300 people in linen manufacture, and Messrs. McClelland & Son, about 200, and there is a handkerchief factory employing 200. MESSRS. F. W. HAYES & CO. [iTHIN a mile of Banbridge, in a North-westerly direction, are situated the Royal Irish Thread Mills of Messrs. F. W. Hayes and Co. They occupy the most historic part of the parish of Seapatrick, and for the convenience of workers, a village, in the immediate vicinity, taking the name of the parish, has grown to considerable proportions. The history of the mills, illustrated on the opposite page, began in 1840. Mr. Frederick W. Hayes was the founder of the firm. For about 10 years the manufacture of Union • linens occupied full attention. Ultimately the manufacture of linen threads of every kind displaced the unions. To meet the requirements of this industry a building three storeys high, 175 feet long and 50 feet wide, was erected and fitted •with the most approved machinery. It is used for preparing spinning, twisting and spooling thread, cost over .£30,000, and was finished and running in 1864. In 1867, a flax store, three storeys high, 185 feet long, and 50 feet wide was added at a cost of about ,£5,000. The threads are put up to suit the markets of the European countries, the United States, and the British Colonies. Their merits have stood the test of critical judgment at the International Exhibitions of Dublin, 1882, and Cork, 1883. A gold medal was awarded by each for the excellence of tailors' linen threads, and certificates of merit for flax and tow yarns. The raw material includes Irish, Belgian, and Dutch flax. The founder of the firm was succeeded by his son, Mr. William Hayes. He

243 died in 1876, and was succeeded by his son, Mr. Frederick W. Hayes, J.P., who resides near the mills, at Seapatrick House, one of the finest residences in the Ban bridge district. On the hill above the village is the deanery, occupied by the Very Rev. Henry Stewart, Dean of Dromore. The mill property consists of about 60 statute acres. It includes the village, and extends to the river, both banks of which are in it. On the western side is a tastefully planted glen, separated from the river by the Great Northern Railway. Between 700 and 800 people are employed by Messrs. Hayes. Of this number five-sixths live in wellconstructed two-storey houses, belonging to the firm. A Cooperative Company supplies groceries, provisions, and drapery goods to the employes, who are the sole shareholders, on the most economic principles. There is an Episcopal Chapel, and a school-house in the village. The latter was erected by the late Mr. William Hayes, at a cost of .£800, and is under the control of the National Board of Education. A large room in it is used for social gatherings, concerts, &c.

Milltown Bleach Works, LENADERG, BANBRIDGE
Belfast: 8 James Street, South. Manchester: 6Jj- Fountain Street.

MESSRS. WILLIAM SMYTH & CO. |N the drive along the Bann from Banbridge to Gilford, among the many sites, there is none more beautiful than that occupied by the Milltown Bleach Works of Messrs. William Smyth & Co. Messrs. Smyth are linen manufacturers, bleachers, finishers and merchants. The illustration on the opposite page gives some idea of the extent of the works, warehouses and bleach green. In this area there are 220 statute acres, a great portion of which is used for the purposes of the concerns. The rest of the land is held in reserve to afford an opportunity for the occasional changing of the surface of the green. In the distance, partly concealed by the hill,are the Banville Beetling Mills, also belonging to the firm. The main works at Milltown are about a mile and a half from Banbridge, and 2£ miles, Irish, from Gilford. The buildings are scattered over a considerable space. Steam and water are combined for driving power, the former being used as an auxiliary. There are six iron water wheels. In addition to their own work, Messrs. W. Smyth & Co. bleach for manufacturers and merchants. To facilitate the shipment of goods, the Great Northern Railway Company has a siding conveniently situated, and passenger trains stop at certain hours every day. Ten years ago a foundry was started on the premises. It has a turnery, fitting shop, and allthe appliances for casting and fitting to suit the requirements of the numerous works in the vicinity of every kind. Mr. Charles Smith, who is a partner in the foundry department, is a practical engineer. The buildings now constituting the Milltown Bleach Works, have been extended and adapted to their present uses by a very heavy outlay since 1825. Mr. John Smyth, sen., purchased them at that time. The active members of the firm are Mr. Wm. Smyth, and Mr. John Smyth, jun. Over 250 people are employed in the various branches, and for the most part live in houses built by Messrs. Smyth.

2S6 LOUGHBRICKLAND. [|N 1881, Loughbrickland had a population of 336. Banbridge is 2 miles, Irish, to the North, and Newry 8 miles, Irish, to the South-south west. The land of the surrounding country is good for pasture and tillage. Potatoes and oats are the principal crops. A small amount of flax is grown. Mr. John W. Whyte, J.P., and the Marquis of Downshire are the owners of the district. Loughbrickland was granted to Sir Marmaduke Whitchurch by Queen Elizabeth in 1585. He built a castle on the shore of the lough. Cromwell's army partly destroyed it, and it was ultimately replaced by a private residence, built in 1812. During King William's march to the Boyne he took advantage of Loughbrickland as a camping ground for II days. The Danes were defeated here by the Irish in 1187. Loughbrickland was named from the lough, and the lough, it is believed, received its name from the speckled trout which at one time abounded in its waters. The extent of land under it is 90 Irish acres. Mr. James Cupples, Mr. James Wright, and Mr, James Gray, who lives in America, are tenants of the farms adjoining the shore line. On Mr. Cupple's farm is an earthwork called " the watery fort," of Danish origin. No trout now exist in the lough, but it is well stocked with eels, and has some roach and perch. The overflow is discharged at Scarva into the canal connecting Lough Neagh with Newry. The Rough Fort is passed on the way from Loughbrickland to Banbridge, and Lisnatirney Fort, a Danish earthwork, is on the farm of Mr. Patrick Cranney, about two miles in the Newry direction. The Church of Ireland at Loughbrickland is a handsome edifice. The original church was destroyed with a part of the village during the war of 1641. It was rebuilt in 1688, and in 1878 a new chancel was added by Mr. A. Wheelan, builder, Newry. It was also newly roofed, and the seats modernized, the total cost exceeding £1,100. The Catholic Church, at the opposite side of the street, is also a handsome edifice, and has a fine new tower. There are in the village a Presbyterian Church of good capacity, a Reformed Presbyterian Church, aud a Lodge of Good Templars—" Village Hope," 164Batter merchant—Thos. Senior Church of I.—Rev. Hy. W.

IN THE DISTRICT OF PORTADOWN. ^DDRESSES of letters to persons residing in sub-postal " districts should include the head office. " GILFORD. fllLFORD is less than 4 miles, Irish, from Portadown, and is its chief sub-post office in the Co. Down. The rural post offices of Ballynagarrick, Knocknamuckley and Moyallon are served from it. Laurencetown also receives its mails from Gilford. The Bann flows through the town, and Banbridge is 4 miles, Irish, to the South-east. The nearest railway station is " The Madden," about a mile distant. Mr. Benjamin Dickson, J.P., and Messrs. Dunbar, M'Master, and Co., Limited, own the town, and the Earl of Clanwilliam, the district, which is fair for pasture and tillage. Oats and flax are the principal crops. The land is used largely for grazing purposes. Gilford has made considerable progress in population. It had only 529 inhabitants in 1831. In 1881 it had i,324,andat present the factory of Messrs. Dunbar, M'Master and Co.. Ld., gives employment to a greater number than this. The town is governed by Commissioners under the lighting clause only of the Towns Improvement Act. Two fairs were formerly held each year, June and November, and a weekly market on Friday. The town is too near Banbridge at one side and Portadown at the other, and as a consequence had to give up the fairs and the market. Gilford's prosperity depends upon the continued success of the industries in the immediate vicinity. These include thread manufacture, handloom linen weaving, and extensive bleacheries. Gilford is in the parish of Tullylish, once the property of the Magennises, Lords of Iveagh. In the war of 1641 the head of the Sept arrayed himself against the government, and forfeited all his possessions. Lough Kernan in this parish, during the same period, was the scene of a most lamentable occurrence. A number of Protestant women, on the way from Armagh, were compelled to cross the lough, then frozen over. The ice was too thin to bear the weight, and all fell through and were drowned. The townland of Moyallon already referred to as having a sub-post office to Gilford, was granted to a colony of Friends from England, in 1685, an< i their descendants still maintain a foothold in it. and have a meeting-house. Gilford Castle, the residence of Sir Richard Johnston, Bart., in 1772, was besieged by an insurgent force, styled " The Hearts of Oak." Prominent in the defence of it was the Presbyterian Minister of the parish, R ev . Samuel Morelle. He lost his life on the occa-

26O sion. His remains were interred at Civiltown, one of the divisions of Laurencetown, and in the vestibule of the Church there, a tablet contains the following inscription : " Near this place lie the remains of Samuel Morelle, dissenting clergyman of the parish, who was killed 6th March, 1772, in the parish, in the 28th year of his age, bravely defending the house of Sir Richard Johnston of Gilford, Baronet, when attacked by those lawless insurgents called ' Hearts of Oak,' and ' Hearts of Steel,' who, under pretence of redressing grievances which never existed, disturbed the public peace in that year. He lived to the welfare of his country, to the honor of his Prince, to the glory of his God. He died fuller of faith than of fear, fuller of resolution than of pain, fuller of honor than of days. His particular friend, Sir Richard Johnston, Baronet, who loved him living, and regrets him dead, hath caused this monument to be erected to his memory—Manet post funerta virtus? The old Castle at Gilford stood near the river bank, in the town, at the entrance to the main thoroughfare from Banbridge. A portion of the ruin still exists. The Gilford Castle of the present day is modern, and is situated at some distance from it, within the same beautifully planted demesne. Mr. Benjamin Dickson, J.P., is the owner. Mr. Hugh Dunbar M'Master, J.P-, has also a handsome residence within the town limits. It is called Dunbarton House, has highly ornamental grounds, and commands an excellent view. Gilford has a Young Men's Christian Association, of which Mr. W. T. Mercier is president, and Mr. John M'Cready secretary. It also has a news-room, a Lodge of Good Templars, and a brass band. At one time a number of earthen forts existed in the parish of Tullylish. One of the largest was at Banford, upon the site of old parish church, and the road beside it. It stood on the southern bank of the Bann, and was used to guard the river pass. now spanned by a stone bridge. The old " church in the fort:' was destroyed in 1641, and rebuilt in 1698, and a circular aisle added in 1827. A new church was built in recent years nearer to the river. It is constructed of hammered blue stone, has a handsome tower, and cost from .£3,000 to ,£4,000. On the northern side of the river, in view of the ford, there is a small square building called the " Black Castle." It is ivy-covered, and is used as a lodge at one of the entrance gates to Banford House, the residence of Mr. Thomas Haughton, J.P. At a short distance from it, on the crest of a hill, there are two interesting monuments ; one is a solid rough stone shaft, about 20 feet high and the other consists of a pedestal surmounted by a beautifully sculptured vase, the whole rising to a height of about 12 feet. The inscriptions have entirely disappeared.

26l BANFORD BLEACH WORKS CO. [|HE works of this Company are beautifully situated near the historical river pass from which the name is derived. At this point the Bann Valley, in breadth and formation, is most favorable for the purposes of an extensive bleachery. The land rises gradually on the Northern side to a commanding height, and has enough trees to emphasize the scenic attractions without interfering with the capabilities of the green. In 1795 the site of the bleach works was owned by Mr. Robert J. Nicholson. It was used then as a bleachery, and there were buildings in which brown linens were woven. Mr. Benjamin Haughton purchased of Mr. Nicholson in 1815, and the enterprise was continued on the same lines until i860, when weaving was given up, and all the energies of the concern concentrated in the bleaching department. The business was carried on under the name of Benjamin Haughton & Co. In 1863 Mr. Daniel J. Jaffe having acquired an interest, Benjamin Haughton & Co. became the Banford Bleach Works Co. Mr. John Edgar bought Mr. Jaffe's interest in 1883. Mr. Thomas Haughton, J.P., and Mr. Edgar constitute the present firm, and are merchants as well as bleachers. Since i860, the alterations and additions to buildings, machinery, etc., cos>t ,£35,000. The buildings are substantial, mostly two storeys high, and cover nearly two The lands available for bleaching include 177 acres, statute measure. Driving power is procured by a combination of steam and water. Three steam engines give a united horse-power of about 100. The water-fall is 7 feet 10 inches. Two water-wheels give about 100 horse-power. One is a breast wheel, 12 feet in diameter, and 5 feet breast, and the second a turbine, 7 feet in diameter. The Banford Bleach Works are within half a mile of the Lawrencetown Railway Station, and one mile of Gilford. They employ 150 people, of whom only 6 are females. In the vicinity are 32 workers' houses belonging to the firm. The flour mills at Mount Pleasant, adjoining Banford, and the land attaching, including a good residence, were lately acquired. A bleach green formerly occupied the site of the mills and premises. The Belfast office of the Banford Bleach Works Co. is at 3 Linen Hall Street.


MESSRS. DUNBAR, M'MASTER & CO., LTD. I N the opposite page are illustrated the immense thread mills of Messrs. Dunbar, M'Master & Co., Ltd., at Gilford. Over 1,500 people are constantly at work in them, and of the houses in the town, 180 belong to the firm, and are occupied by their employes. Buildings for three schools under the National Board of Education have been erected by Messrs. Dunbar, M'Master & Co., and it is due to their liberality, in a great degree, that there are in the town handsome places of worship for members of the Church of Ireland, Presbyterians and Roman Catholics. The late Mr. John W. M'Master was a large subscriber to the cost of the Church of Ireland, and the parsonage was erected at his expense. The site for the Roman Catholic church was presented by the late Mr. Dunbar. Reading- • rooms are provided, and are lighted and heated at the expense of the firm. The history of Messrs. Dunbar, M'Master & Co., Ltd., dates from about the year 1838. Mr. Hugh Dunbar, of Huntley, Banbridge, was the founder. Linen yarn preparation and hand-loom weaving engaged his attention at that time. A few years afterward Mr. Dunbar formed a partnership with Mr. John W. M'Master, of the City of Armagh,nunder the title of Dunbar, M'Master & Co. Mr. Dunbar died in 1847, a ( i Mr- M'Master in 1872. In 1886, a limited liability company was registered. It consists of Mr. H. Dunbar M'Master, J. P., son of Mr. John W. M 'Master, and his six brothers. Since the firm was established, about ^180,000 has been spent upon buildings, machinery, watercourses, etc. Yarns for weaving purposes and threads now constitute the manufactures. These are dyed and bleached upon the premises, which consist of 180 acres. Steam and water in conjunction supply the motive power, and the washing is done in the river Bann, which flows through the dyehouse and bleach works. There are 16,000 spindles used for spinning, and 4,000 for twisting, and with these appliances the threads and yarns spun every week would go around the world three times. The firm has its own lithographing works, and fitting shop for making and repairing machinery. The threads are put up in styles beyond counting, to suit Ireland, England and Scotland, all the Continental countries, the United States, South and Central America, Brazil, Canada, Australia, and the rest of the British Colonies and possessions. Prize medals were awarded to Messrs. Dunbar, M'Master & Co., for threads, at all the Exhibitions where they were in competition. In London, 1862, for " great general excellence," in Dublin, 1865, for " superior quality,"' and in Philadelphia, 1876, for " superior excellence in quality and colors." A branch of the concerns at Greenwich, New York, was established in 1880. It is managed by Mr. John M'Master, and is called Dunbarton Mills. The workpeople are, for the greater part, from Gilford.

LAWRENCETOWN. JAWRENCETOWN is in the parish of Tullylish, and barony of Lower Iveagh, z\ miles, Irish, from Banbridge, and about one mile and a quarter, Irish, from Gilford. It is on the Bann, and is a station on the Great Northern Railway. Mr. A. J. R. Stewart, of the County Donegal, is the owner of the district, the lands of which are good for pasture and tillage. The village had a population of 139 in 1881, but is now very much larger. It consists of three divisions. The first is Civiltown, in which is Tullylish Presbyterian Church, a spacious edifice, rebuilt about 7 years ago, at a cost of ,£2,000. It has handsome grounds. Reference to the Morelle monument here, will be found under the head of Gilford. The second village division, the Point, has the Roman Catholic Church and schools. The third division, Hall's Mill, contains the Post Office, and a number of workmen's cottages. Several handsome private residences are in the vicinity, including Hazelbank, Mr. Geo. M. Rogers, J.P., and Glenbanna, Mr. Wm. Walker. The avenue to Glenbanna lies through two rows of giant beeches, the branches forming a beautiful bower, 50 feet wide. Lawrencetown is one of the numerous birth places of

Bleachers and Finishers,


the late Alexander T. Stewart, the Irish-American millionaire. Rose Hall, the house in which he was born here, is at present the residence of Dr. William Chambers. A boot maker in the village remembers Mr. Stewart as a boy. As this is the last place where I shall have occasion to mention the t'ann, it will be convenient to state that the supply of water in it is maintained through various impounding agencies from its source in the Mourne Mountains, in order to keep up a tolerably steady summer supply. For this purpose, the Bann Reservoir Co. was chartered. It is empowered to charge each of the fall owners as far as Moyallon, ^10 per year, per foot of fall. Each foot of fall is estimated as 10 horse-power. The fall owners are the principal shareholders. THE SPRINGVALE BLEACH WORKS. MORE delightful situation it would not be easy to find than that of the Springyale Bleach Works. It is not often that the name of a place affords a clue to the nature of its surroundings, but this is one of the exceptions. The vale and the springs are here, and in addition to these attractions are richly wooded hills, and the river running between banks, diversified in the most charming manner. The wooden foot-bridge, shown in the illustration on the opposite page, connects the village of Lawrencetown with the works, and greatly increases the picturesqueness. More than 50 years ago, Mr. James Uprichard, whose family originally came from Wales, founded the Springvale Bleach Works. Associated with him were his brothers, Thomas and Henry, bachelors. Mr. James Uprich'ard's son William succeeded to the proprietorship at the demise of his uncle Henry, about the year 1850. His father and uncle Thomas had been dead for some time previously. Mr. William Uprichard died in 1884, and his son, Mr. Henry A. Uprichard, J.P., entered into possession, and is now sole proprietor, but the name of the old firm is still maintained. During many years linen weaving, as well as bleaching, was done here. At present the operations are confined to bleaching and finishing. The buildings are extensive, the largest being, respectively about 200 feet long, 50 feet wide, and 3 storeys high, and 150 feet long, 50 feet wide and 3 storeys high. Water and steam in conjunction

270 are used for power purposes. There are three iron waterwheels, each 16 feet in diameter, giving a total 'of about 150 horse-power. Two steam engines give 60 horse-power. Over 200 acres of land, belonging to the works, afford bleaching facilities, and there are 260 acres at Elmfield, the private residence of Mr. Uprichard, at a distance of 3 miles, Irish. About 250 people are employed, fths men. There has lately been a considerable amount expended on new buildings and other improvements. In the life-time of Mr. W. Uprichard the outlay on workmen's cottages, and additions to works, machinery, etc., was over ,£ 10,000. Bleaching and finishing are done on commission, and for account of the concerns. THE HAZELBANK WEAVING CO. [HE factory of the Hazelbank Weaving Company stands on the Southern bank of the Bann, at Lawrencetown. In the immediate surroundings are scenic charms, equal to the finest in the district. The roadway which runs at a high elevation on the Northern bank, is cut to give access from the Banbridge and Gilford directions across a substantial wooden bridge. The main building belonging to the Company is of extensive proportions. It is now converted into offices and stores, but was devoted to spinning purposes, by Samuel Law, in the last century. The Hazelbank Weaving Company was formed in 1880. It is composed of Mr. Thomas Dickson and Mr. William Walker Before it came into existence, Messrs. William Waw & Co. had been in occupation of the premises for many years. The weaving of very fine linens was their specialty. The Hazelbank Weaving Co. manufacture drills, rough browns, buckrams, and glass cloths. Linen yarns only are used. These are procured at Belfast, and the product of the factory, in an unfinished state, is disposed of in the same market. When the Hazelbank Weaving Co. entered into possession, there were only 75 looms. This number has since been increased to 200, all having the very latest improvements. During the winter and spring, an iron breast-wheel, 15 feet in diameter, and 8£ feet fall, produces about 65 horse-power, and works in conjunction with a steam-engine of 70 horse-power.


In summer the steam has to be increased in proportion to the loss of water. The buildings of modern character consist of a weaving shed, 135 feet long and 100 feet wide ; and two preparing sheds, one 135 feet long and 23 feet wide ; and the other 135 feet long and 36 feet wide. The weaving shed was in existence previous to 1880, and the preparing sheds were built by the Hazelbank Weaving Co. Extra warerooms are also among the latest improvements, the whole necessitating an extensive outlay. The mill premises and grounds cover 17 statute acres. Included in this area is the house of Mr. Walker, and 43 workmen's cottages, all built by the firm. About 200 people are employed. A majority of this number are daughters of small farmers, residing at a convenient distance from the factory. Blacksmiths—J. Donaldson, W.

272 SCARVA. 3ARVA is on the border of Down and Armagh, and is a station on the Great Northern Railway between Banbridge and Portadown It is 3J miles from Banbridge. The canal from Newry to Lough Neagh passes here. Seen from the train Scarva presents a most inviting appearance. One long street, composing the village, runs at the foot of a beautiful hill. Upon this the Church of Ireland stands. It was built in 1850, and has since undergone changes of interior in accordance with modern ideas. The seats are in the latest style, and there is a handsome reading desk and pulpit. The church-yard is tastefully laid out, and from it there is a fine view of the surrounding country. A private door, from the church-yard communicates with the garden of Mr. Robert^ Taylor, postmaster, and it may be said of this that it has no rival in the county. It is handsomely planted with shrubs, andflowers,and has many well shaded resting places in the course of the climb to the top of the hill. One of these is a tea-house, the principal chamber in a castellated building, defended by mock cannon. Scarva is a great place on the 13th of July of each year. Oh that day the demesne of Scarvagh Jiouse, in the neighborhood, is given by the owner, Mr. J. T. Reilly, D.L., for sham fights by armies representing the hosts of King James and King William. In Mr. Reilly's demesne is a portion of the famous Dane's Cast, reference to which will be found in the fore part of the book. Scarva was once a market town. It had a population of 220 in 1831, and of 186 in 1881. Mr. John Reilly was the founder in 1746. In the war of 1641 several bloody battles were fought here. Between Scarva and Loughbrickland, and thence to Poyntspass, the Army of King William was encamped in 1690. The Royal tent was pitched under an oak in Mr. Reilly's demesne. In 1783 the " Hearts ot Steel," and the Break-of-Day-Boys fought a terrible battle at Lisnagade Fort in the vicinity. Three fairs are held in the year, March, June and September. At the entrance to the village by the high road from Banbridge, there is a pretty cottage used for handloom linen weaving by the brothers Samuel and John Shanks. They have 15 looms at work, and give out yarns to about 22 handloom weavers, who reside in the district. A feature is made of fine and coarse sheetings, the market for which, in the brown state, is Belfast. Elacksmith—A. M'Parland Coal—S. Hill, J. M'Veigh Dispensary—Doctor M'Kain Boots and Shoes—A.

MOIRA. | O I R A is the great limestone and lime-burning centre of the county. It is in the barony of Lower Iveagh, about 4 miles from Lurgan. A station of the- Great Northern Railway, of the same name, is distant from it fths of a mile, and the Lagan Canal runs near the railway. In 1861 the village had a population of 481. About 200 women and girls receive employment through sewed muslin agencies. Lord Deramore owns the district, and the land is good for pasture and tillage. Oats and potatoes are the principal crops. Moira demesne, well planted, is open to the public. It once had a castle. Of this nothing remains but the foundation. In the time of Sir John Rawdon linens were manufactured in the village, and there was a prosperous market. The industry and the market have been discontinued. Four fairs are held in each year. Frogs were first noticed in Iieland at Moria, and in the vicinity a great battle is said to have been fought in 637 between Cougal, and Donald, King of Ireland, ending in the defeat of the former.

WARINGSTOWN. flARINGSTOWN had a population of 482 in 1881. It is in the barony of Lower Iveagh, 2 miles, Irish, South-east of Lurgan, the nearest railway station. Col. Thomas Waring, M.P., is the principal owner of the village and district. The land is better adapted for pasture than tillage. Waringstown was originally called Clanconnell. In 1697 it was purchased by William Waring from Cromwellian dragoons. He built a fine residence, which is still in existence. During the war between William and James, he had to fly to the Continent, and the house was used for quarters by James's troops, until the arrival of Duke Schomberg. Samuel Waring, ton of William, while traveling in Holland and Belgium became interested in the manufacture of linen diaper, and • subsequently began the industry at Waringstown. It was by him the change of name was effected. The first piece of Irish diaper was made here. At present linen manufacture is carried on by four employers. From 300 to 400 handloom weavers live in the village and neighborhood. Baker—S. J. Beattie Carpenters—J. Calder, J.Dogherty Blacksmith—J. Kennedy Church of I.—Rev. E. D. Atkinson, Rev. W. O'N.

Dunville, D.L., is the principal owner of the district, the land of which is fair. Oats, flax and potatoes are the crops. The village consists of about 25 houses, exclusive of the building recently put up by Mr. A. O. Reid to the memory of his only son. It is constructed of blue stone, relieved by dressings of freestone. A tower in the centre is surmounted by a square white stone, beneath which, in large letters, it is impressively intimated that
" THE TIME is SHORT." Notwithstanding the force of the

inscription, a great deal of time has been spent in controversy concerning the disposition of the building. At a distance of about 2j miles, Irish, is the ancient churchyard of Kilkeeran. j , l i l f h b i l f Chli d It is used exclusively for the burial of Catholics, under the control of the Rev. M. Hamill, P.P. The oldest tomb-stone, bearing date, was erected one hundred years ago. An old flag stone here has considerable antiquarian interest.

BANGOR. [ANGOR is deservedly the most popular of the sea-side resorts in the Northern portion of the county. It is in the barony of Lower Ards, 12J miles,English,!from Belfast by rail, and 10 miles, Irish, by road. The coast scenery for miles is surpassingly beautiful. There are few watering places where irregularity of the shorelineproducesamore pleasing diversity of scenic effects. The main street of the town descends a gentle hill to the bay, the formation of which is followed in the building of substantial houses. At the Western side a high cliff, terraced almost to the top, is covered by handsome lodges. Further to the west is Crawfordsburn. A description of it will be found under its own heading as a sub-post office. Ballyholme Bay to the East, is less than half a mile from the centre of the town. The walk to it is called " The Promenade." It would not be easy to find a more delightful retreat from the cares of the world than is afforded here. A large part of the space fronting the bay is occupied with comfortable dwellings two and three storeys high. Further to the East is Groomsport, celebrated in history as the point at which, on August 13th, 1689, the advance army of King William landed from 70 transports. It consisted of 10,000 men, under command of Duke Schomberg. Groomsport is a fishing village and coast guard station. It had a population

28 5 of 346 in 1881. The places of interest within a few miles drive of Bangor are numerous, and all open to the public. Within the limits of the town boundary is Bangor Castle, the residence of Mr. R. E. Ward, D. L. It commands a splendid view of Belfast Lough. Surrounding it is a richly wooded and excellently kept demesne. The principal entrance is near the railway station and the old parish church, and rectory. In the garden wall of the rectory is a fragment of the Abbey for regular Canons founded by St. Comgall, in the sixth century. The Abbey was destroyed by fire in 674, and having been re-built, its wealth excited the cupidity of the Danes. About the year 818 they murdered the Abbot, and, it is said that upon the same occasion 900 of the monks were massacred. Malachy O'Morgair, in 1125, restored and enlarged the Abbey. He also erected an oratory in which, according to St. Bernard, lime and stone were first used in Ireland for building purposes. The original name of the site was " Vale of Angels." During the time of Abbot O'Morgair the abbey acquired possessions in the Isle of Man. Pope Paul II., in 1469, because of the decay of the abbey through the neglect of the abbot, made a grant of it and its possessions to the Order of St. Francis. After the dissolution the O'Neills secured a large part of the lands, and held them until Conn O'Neill's rebellion during the reign of Queen Elizabeth. Sir James Hamilton, afterward Viscount Clandeboye, received a grant of the site of the abbey and its Irish possessions from James I. He planted a Scotch colony, made up of natives of Ayrshire. The fragment of the abbey already referred to as forming part of the garden wall of the rectory, is about 150 feet long and about 20 feet at the highest elevation. The old church-yard near it is used for the burial of Protestants and Roman Catholics. Soon after the foundation of the abbey by St. Comgall, a school was established at Bangor. St. Carthagus was president, and so great was its reputation for learning that it was drawn upon for professors when the University of Oxford was restored by King Alfred. In the 18th century an effort was made with good success to establish cotton manufacture on a firm basis at Bangor. The Right Hon. Col. R. Ward, owner of the town, did his utmost to promote the industry. Linenweaving and embroidering were also done in the town and district. After the line of railway to Belfast had been opened, Bangor's attractions as a water-place, brought it into the front rank. It is now also connected with Belfast by steamers, and hardly needs the addition of pleasure gardens to stimulate the desire of the people of that town to increase the number of their visits. The bathing facilities at Bangor are tavorable for both sexes, and as I have already intimated, the

28 7 walks and drives in the vicinity are delightful. That to Stricklen Glen is worthy of special mention. The way out lies over Gray's Hill. At the highest point of the road charming views are obtained of the sea, the shore, and the surrounding country. In the distance, to the South-west, is Helen's Tower, rising from the summit of a wooded hill. Clandeboye House, the residence of Lord Dufferin, is in the same direction. Numerous handsome private residences are seen on every side in this beautiful prospect. Returning to the railway station by a second road, the new Roman Catholic Church is passed. At the time of my visit it was approaching completion. The walls are of blue stone with scrabo freestone dressings. Nearer to the railway station is the old second Presbyterian Church. Arrangements are complete for the erection of a new and beautiful edifice for the congregation in the main thoroughfare, where the first Presbyterian Church occupies an excellent site. About 5 years ago this stately old edifice received the addition of a very high and most graceful tower and spire constructed of scrabo freestone, with Scotch red sandstone dressings. The new Church of Ireland, in the street opposite, is a very chaste edifice in which the capabilities of the native blue stone of the district, in conjunction with red sandstone, are very strikingly demonstrated. In line with the church is the new Masonic Hall, also a fine building. It is partly used as a Court House. Bangor received a charter of incorporation from James I., dated 1613. Under it there were 13 free burgesses, one of whom was elected annually to the office of Provost. At present a board, consisting of 9 Commissioners, governs under the Towns Improvement (Ireland) Act, and meets expenses from the proceeds of a general purposes rate. There are 80 gas lamps in the streets, lighted from works purchased for £750 from a private company in 1882. The water supply is brought from a reservoir at Conlig, i\ miles. The elevation is 225 feet above the sea level, and the design of the engineer, put into effect in 1883, involved an outlay of nearly .£10,000. For this and other objects the Commissioners borrowed ,£19,000 from the Board of Works, to be paid off by a sinking fund in 40 years. The organizations for social purposes at Bangor include the Musical Society, established in 1879, Mr. T. H. Crowe, conductor ; Good Templars, Masonic and Orange Lodges ; a Corinthian Sailing club, established in 1881 ; a Bicycle club, established in 1885 ; a Recreation society ; a Lacrosse club, and two Football clubs. The efforts of the churches to attend to the spiritual wants of the residents and visitors are supplemented by the Bangor Tract Distributors' and Christian Workers' Society. Cotton and linen have disappeared from the town as manufac-

tures. Lime-burning and brick-making are carried on extensively, and form important items in the list of exports. The harbor is owned by Mr. Ward. At spring tides it has a depth of 11 feet at the pier head, and 9 feet further in. The dues on shipping are 2d. per ton register, and i£d. per ton cargo. The only industry, of long standing, at Bangor, that has survived the changes of time is embroidering. Fifty years ago there was a school of embroidery in the town, established by Mr. Cochrane of Dublin, and those who received instructions in it taught their daughters. In this way the talent has been perpetuated. Twenty-two years ago, Mr. David M'Kenzie established himself as an embroidery and lace manufacturer at • Bangor. His designs were so chaste, and the needlework was done so perfectly, that they attracted the admiration of the Duchess of Marlborough. She brought them to the notice of Queen Victoria, and Mr. M'Kenzie presently received an order from Her Majesty, the execution of which was highly commended. Mr. M'Kenzie died about five years ago, having made by sheer force of merit a direct business connection with the families of the nobility and gentry, extending over the United Kingdom. He was succeeded by Mr. John M'Meekan, but the name, David M'Kenzie, so well known, is still maintained in everything concerning the enterprise. Books of designs are issued with the accustomed regularity, and the orders resulting therefrom are sufficient to provide employment for about 100 women and girls. The designs include monograms, crests and fancy lettering for handkerchiefs, night-dress sachets, toilet covers, pin cushion covers, etc., and for all kinds of lace trimming for underclothing. Mr. James Crosbie is also a designer and manufacturer of hand embroidery whose fame is known all over the United Kingdom. Mr. Crosbie is an enthusiast in the particular line in which he is engaged, and knowing the superiority of Irish embroidery, over the Swiss machine work, would like to see its undoubted merits more fully recognized. He is a native of Bangor, and after an experience of 30 years, as a designer for embroidery at Glasgow, returned to his native'place in 1881, and has since devoted himself energetically to the congenial task of increasing the fame of Bangor needlework^ He was an exhibitor at the Cork International Exhibition of 1883, and received a first prize medal, the " highest award for embroidery." He was a competitor at the Dublin Artisans' Exhibition of 1685, and received a bronze medal for "highest merit in white embroidery." He is also an exhibitor at the Edinburgh Exhibition of this year. The orders for hand embroidery, trimmings, insertions, handkerchiefs, underclothing, pillow shams, and sheets, night-dress cases, etc., etc., received from wholesale houses, and direct from families, already

299 COMBER. N 1881 Comber had a population of 2,165. It is a I junction on the Belfast and Co Down Railway. niAe 1 barony of Lower Castlereagh, 8 miles, English, Southeast of Belfast, and 3 i miles, English, South-west of Newtownards. The situation of the town is most attractive A number of highly cultivated hills hem it in on all sides, providing a view of rural beauty from nearly every house. Extensive spinning mills, whisky distilleries, and agencies for sewed muslin, and a mineral water factory, enterprisingly operated by Mr. James Milling, provide employment for the people. Vessels ot small tonnage come to anchor in the roadstead within a mile ot Comber, and discharge coals into carts at low water. Lord Londonderry owns the town and a large part of the district, the lands of which are good for pasture and tillage. Flax, potatoes, and oats are the chief crops. Every Tuesday there is a market for potatoes, hay and straw, and turnips. Some years ago a market-house, now devoted to other purposes, was erected, and a strong effort made to establish first-rate general markets, but it did not succeed owing to the nearness of Belfast. Fairs continue to be held four times a year. St. Patrick founded an abbey at Comber, and there was also one founded by the progenitor of the O'Neills of Clandeboye, in honor of the Virgin, but whether the latter was raised on the site of the former is a question involved in doubt. At the time of the arrival of DeCourcy at Downpatrick, it is believed that Brian Catha Dun, head of the sept, had a castle here. He was slain in battle with De Courcy, but the abbey continued to exist until 1543, when the abbot, John O'Mulligan, voluntarily resigned. James 1. made a grant of the site of the abbey and its possessions to Sir James Hamilton, after whose death his successors built a splendid residence on one of the hills overlooking the town. It was called Mount Alexander, and in its construction much of the material was drawn from the walls of the abbey. The residence finally went to decay, but at present part of the site is occupied by a comfortable dwelling. The parish Church of Ireland, in the Square, stands upon the ground formerly occupied by the abbey. The church is in the later style of English architecture, and has a square tower and clock. Foundations of the abbey have frequently been found by Henry Martin, the sexton, when d'ggmg graves. In the church-yard are the tombs of the Andrews, McConnell, and McCance families! The former

Capt. Wm. Chetwynd, Lt. Unet, and Ensign Jas. Sparks, who fell during the rebellion of 1798, in a battle near Saintfield. In the Square, opposite the church, is a handsome pedestal monument, surmounted by a statue, to the memory of Robert Rollo Gillespie, Major General and K.C.B., "erected by his countrymen and companions, 1845." He was born at Comber, 1766, and fell in battle before the fortress of Kalunga, October, 1814. His last words were, " One shot more for the honor of Down." A statue in St. Paul's Cathedral, London, of Gen. Gillespie, was voted by both houses of Parliament. Comber has two handsome Presbyterian Churches, a Unitarian Church, a Roman Catholic Church, and a Masonic and Orange Hall. The North Down Cricket Club, one of the best County Clubs in Ulster, has head quarters here, and preserves a record of about 30 years excellent work. A hare and hounds club also exists, and at Moneyreagh, in the postal district, a Coursing Club had itsfirstmeeting this year. A large number of earthworks existed in the parish. In 1885 Mr. John Glover, while working in a field on his farm at Ballyloughan, about a quarter of a mile outside the town, discovered several cinerary urns, containing human bones. Urns of the same kind have been found at the Glass Moss, and other places in the parish. Some of the best specimens are in the Belfast Museum. At Ballygraphon, the table stone of a " Druidical altar " lies in a field. It is 19 feet long, 6 feet wide and 4 feet thick. Three Irish oaks of immense size are on the farm of Mr. Wm.

DONAGHADEE. |ONAGHADEE is 22 miles, English, by rail from Belfast byway of Comber junction, and Newtownards. It is 14 miles, Irish, by road. In 1881 it had a population of 1,861. For many years the star of Donaghadee was in the ascendant, but it fell when the town ceased to be the landing place for the mails from Scotland. Portpatrick is only 22 miles distant, and at one time it was considered highly improbable that cross-channel mail communication would be found more desirable from any other point. While it was a packet station nearly ^300,000 was spent upon harbor works. At the end of the south pier there is a stationary light, and a depth of about 26 feet of water at high tides. The Board of Works is in control, but no tolls are collected from vessels using either the harbor or the quays. Coal and salt are the chief imports, and potatoes almost the only export. Donaghadee at present relies for success upon its manifold attractions as a sea-side summer resort. It has a splendid strand for bathing, and walks and drives, possessing numerous features of interest. On the Northern side of the town, overlooking the sea, is an earthwork, 70 feet high. It is surmounted by a tower, erected during the period of the harbor works, 1821-34, for the safe storing of blasting powder. The view of the channel from here, in clear weather, is very good. The houses can be seen on the Scotch coast, and the Isle of Man is also visible. Donaghadee down to 30 years ago, enjoyed a fame for embroidery, second tono other place in Ireland. Onewarehouse.belongingtoa Glasgow firm, then in existence, used to pay out ,£500 a week in "ages. At present from 600 to 800 women and girls of the town and district receive employment through sewed muslin agencies. Donaghadee originally formed part of the possessions of the Black Abbey, reference to which is made under the head of Grey Abbey. At present Mr. Daniel Delacherois, D.L., owns if> and a part of the parish, the lands of which are fair for pasture and tillage. His residence, Manor House, is one of the handsomest in the Ards. The principal crops are potatoes, oats, flax and wheat. Millisle, a village, 2 miles, Irish, to the South, has near it Woburn, the beautiful sea-side residence of Miss G. Dunbar. Carrowdore, a village occupied for the most part by farm laborers, is 2 miles, Irish, further South-west. Within half a mile of it is Carrowdore Castle, the picturesquely situated residence of the landlord of the district, Mr. F. D. Crommelin. •Millisle and Carrowdore are served with mails from Belfast by way of Donaghadee. Donaghadee has successful sailing and toot-ball clubs. There is no regular market, and fairs have been discontinued. About 30 sailing and rowing yawls are employed

The name was derived from the Copeland family in the 12th century. The_ largest of the group is one mile from the main land, and 2 miles from the town. It contains about 200 acres, and is owned by Capt. Ker, M.P. It has good pasture land, and produces oats, flax, and potatoes fairly well.

HOLYWOOD. j]OLYWOOD is one of the most highly favored of the County Down towns. It flourishes mainly as a delightful sea-side residence for merchants of Belfast, from which it is distant 4J miles, English, by rail. It had a population of 3,293 in 1881. Before the bathing attractions of Bangor were so easily taken advantage of, Holywood was more popular as a summer resort for families making a stay of a month or longer. It is still a great summer day resort; but it is as a place of residence all the year round that it has reached the zenith of popularity. Although only such a short distance from Belfast, and somewhat further to the north, the temperature of Holywood is two and •1 half degrees milder in winter. The streets are broad, and the buildings generally substantial and sightly in every part of the town. Then there is " High Holywood," so called for the reason that the town has succeeded in climbing the magnificent hill which rises immediately behind it. Nowhere in the county have the facilities for producing real terraces been taken advantage of to a like extent. All the way up the hill, from many street openings, are villa residences, unpretentious as to architecture, that invite most temptingly owing to the lavish floral and arboral adornments in their grounds. The view of Belfast Lough from " High Holywood" is lovely in the extreme. The Church of Ireland in this quarter is a noble edifice in the gothic style. The interior is in keeping with the exterior. A worthy addition to the sumptuousness of detail has lately been made by the decoration of the chancel walls in Caen stone and Irish marbles. This work was done to commemorate James Alexander, J.P., who died in 1882. A handsome school-house in the grounds, erected at the expense of the congregation, is now under the authority of the National Board of Education. Mr.

Richard Doak is the principal. T h e compensations for residence at Holywood are numerous. It has first-rate public and private schools. Among the number being one the foundation of which was provided for in the will of the late Robert Sullivan, LL.D., a native of the town, who was for 36 years connected with the National Board of Education. H e died in 1868, and his remains are interred in the interior of Holywood Priory Church. A handsome monument marks the grave. Holywood has an abundant supply of pure water, brought from the townland of Ballykeel, one mile, Irish, from town. T h e river of the same name is there impounded between two hills. Gas lamps to the number of 135 are distributed throughout the different streets. There is a new and substantial Town Hall having a concert room capable of seating an audience of 500. The agencies for the improvement of mind and body include the Voung Men's Christian Association, a News room, Masonic Hall, and Football, Crjcket and Lawn Tennis clubs. The Kinnegar, containing about 100 acres, adjoins the shore of the lough. It was acquired by the Government this year for drill purposes, and for ball practice. The Royal Belfast Golf club uses it, and the Ulster Rifle Association has held its annual meetings here for 3 5 years. Holywood has been governed by Commissioners, under the Towns Improvement (Ireland) Act, since 1864. T h e name of the town was derived from a Franciscan Priory, founded in the year 1200 by Thomas Whyte. After the dissolution, its possessions, including the Copeland Islands, were granted to Sir James Hamilton. The remains still exist. .Reference is made to the priory under the head of abbeys and sepulchral slabs, for which see index. In the Belfast Museum is a document of curious interest, signed by the Presbyterian clergy and laity at Holywood, in 1644.

NEWTOWNBREDA. |EWTOWNBREDA had a population of 302 in 1881. It is a pretty village, situated in the barony of Upper Castlereagh, 2J miles, Irish, South by East from the Royal Exchange, Belfast. The road lies for some distance through Ballynafeigh, now forming part of the borough of Belfast. Newtownbreda is less than half a mile, Irish, from the borough boundary. Belvoir Park, the residence of Lord Deramore, formerly Sir Thomas Bateson, Bart., adjoins the village. The demesne is well planted, has a beautiful lake, and is charmingly diversified by hills. Mr.T. D. Crawford, J.P., and Mr. H. Martin, have handsome places in the neighborhood. The Church of Ireland, not long ago, had a new chancel, and a richly carved pulpit, in Caen stone and marble, the former erected at the expense of Lord Deramore, and the latter presented by Mrs. Capt. ,Ker, of Montalto. Lord Deramore is the owner of the district of Newtownbreda, the lands of which are good fpr pasture and tillage. Potatoes and oats are the principal crops. Church of I.—Rev. H. W.

IJURDYSBURN consists of about 30 houses, occupied chiefly by farm laborers. It is situated at a distance of about 3^ miles, Irish, from the Royal Exchange, Belfast, and is about a mile, Irish, South of Newtownbreda, in the barony of Upper Castlereagh. The chief attractions of Purdysburn are the mansion and demesne of the owner of the district, Mr. R. N. Batt, D.L. In the demesne are three miniature lakes, and yews of immense size. The great charm of the place is the glen through which the burn runs. It is tastefully planted with trees and shrubs, and has most inviting walks. Half a mile from the village, further to the Southward, is the


parish Church of Ballylesson. In view of the church-yard, at a much higher elevation, is the Giant's Ring, the most interesting of the ancient earthworks in the county. A description of it will befoundin the department of the book devoted to antiquities. See index. Church of I., Ballylesson—Rev. Dick, Jas., Ballycowan F. Dudley Gardner, J.

[.TRANDTOWN is a beautiful suburb, occupied almost entirely by residences of business and professional men belonging to Belfast. It is at a distance of less than 2 miles, Irish, from the Exchange, East by North, and less than a rriile, English, from the railway station at Sydenham. Sydenham is one mile and three quarters, English, from Belfast. Many of the houses in both places are surrounded by parks, in which the highest effects of landscape gardening are produced. Ballyhackamore, a village on the old mail coach road to Belfast, is also in the Strandtown district, half a mile from the post-office. It has a population of about 300, made up for the greater part of laborers, coachmen and gardeners. Strandtown had a population of 450 in 1881.

Cbemlst an& ©rugflfst, CONWAY SQUARE, NEWTOWNARDS.
Paints, Oils, Colors, Varnishes, &c. NEWTOWNARDS. i EWTOWNARDS had a population of 8,676 in 1881. It is in the barony of Lower Ards, 13J miles, English, East of Belfast, by the Belfast and Co. Down Railway, via Comber, and 8 miles by the direct road. Strangford Lough, in its most Northern extremity, approaches within a short distance. Most of the intervening ground was reclaimed from the tide. The situation of Newtownards is peculiarly well adapted to the requirements of a populous town. It consists of a broad valley, in which is the square, and nearly all the principal streets run at considerable length without having to climb any of the hills that contribute so much to the beauty of the surrounding scenery. Scrabo Hill, to the South-west, containing an excellent free stone quarry, is surmounted by a tower, erected to the memory of Charles William, Marquis of Londonderry. The view from it includes every prominent point in the Northern part of the county. At the opposite side of the valley is Helen's Tower, rising from the summit of Conlig Hill. Contributions to the picturesque effects are also made by the ruins of wind-mills. A highly cultivated farming country comprises the district of Newtownards, and helps materially to maintain its prosperity. Since 1831 there has been an increase of 2,676 in the population of the town, and a very important increase has also taken place in the number of manufacturing enterprises. Fifty years ago the most prominent industry consisted of a brewery owned by Mr. John Johnstone, the output of which aggregated 7,000 barrels. Hand-looms to the number of 600, were employed in weaving muslin, and 20 in weaving coarse linens, and about 1,000 women and girls received constant work through embroidery agencies for Scotch merchants. The brewery has ceased to brew, and this is about the only important loss in fifty years. There has been an increase in the number of hand-loom weavers, and the employment given through sewed

327 muslin agencies is certainly not less than at the time referred to. The new enterprises include a tape and twine factory, a linen factory, handkerchief printing works, bleach works, a woollen factory, bed-quilt factory, and hosiery, shirt and skirt factories. From the business point of view, Newtownards is a first-rate town. It has well-stocked and handsomely fitted shops, and energetic merchants. In no other town in Ireland have I found such a combination of enterprises in one establishment as job printing, painting, and funeral undertaking. Messrs. J. & R. B. Caughey, of Frances-street, are the originators of this unique idea. Building improvements at Newtownards have kept pace with the general advance. Some worthy accessions have been made to church edifices within recent years. THE DOMINICAN MONASTERY, O'NEILL'S CASTLE, ABBEY OF MOVILLA, &c. ||UCH of the earlier history of Newtownards is associated with religious establishments. It was anciently called the Newtown of Blathmac, the name having been derived from the sept occupying the district. A monastery for Dominican friars was founded herein 1244, by Walter De Burgho, Earl of Ulster. After the dissolution it was granted, with its possessions, to Lord Clandeboye. Some time subsequent to Conn O'Neill's Rebellion, Newtownards was transferred to Sir Hugh Montgomery, by James I. He built a Church on the site of the monastery, and it was used until 1817. When the church in Regent-street was finished the old building served the purpose of a Court-house and was occupied in this way for many years. In i860 it was '' consecrated and set apart as a place of burial" by the Lord Bishop of Down and Connor. It is sacred to the Londonderry family. In a Part of the church said to have been built by Sir Robert Colvil, are the tombs of Alexander Stewart, father of the first Marquis of Londonderry, 1767, and of Lady Ross Colvil, 1623, Robert Colvil, 1697, and Hugh Colvil, 1701. In the nave is the tomb of the fourth Marquis of Londonderry, 1872, and of his widow, Elizabeth, 1885. Numerous inscriptions on the three wge sandstone pillars, dividing the nave from the aisle, commemorate natives of the town. The church ruin stands in Court Square, and is well worth a visit. A high tower in the centre is completely covered with ivy, as are also the walls, interior and exterior. Mr. Martin, bailiff of the Londonderry estate, which includes Newtownards, has charge of the ruin. He lives within a few doors of it, and visitors will find him most obliging.

At the back of the old church, in Court square, a castle was erected by the O'Neills in the 14th century, but when Sir Hugh Montgomery took possession very little remained. He had a new castle built on the old foundations, and made it his residence. His descendants continued in occupation until it was destroyed by fire. Some of the foundations still exist at the rear of Mr. David Dalzel's house, Castle-street. The Castle Gardens, now belonging to Mr. Geo. Walker, J.P., have much in them to suggest inquiry. Among the rest is a square door-way of sandstone, surmounted by mitres, one at each side, sculptured in relief. Some time ago a lead cannon-ball, about 6 lbs. weight, was found in the gardens, near the site of the castle. It was flattened evidently by contact with a wall. North of the town, off the Belfast road, was the cell of Kiltonga. Reference is made to it in the chapter describing the Kiltonga bleach works. At a distance of about a mile from Newtownards are the ruins of the Abbey of Movilla, founded in the Sixth century by St. Fmian, whose death occurred in 572. It flourished until the dissolution. The site is one of the finest in the county. Two gables, about 150 feet apart, constitute the chief features of the remains. In the side wall, running parallel with the road, there are seven sepulchral slabs, which rank'among the best examples of the kind in Ireland. Three of them on the ground, near the larger gable, are considered the most interesting. On one a shear and withe, are carved' in relief. Archaeologists are 01 opinion that the shear indicates that the stone covers the grave of a woman. Mr. James Appersoh is under a different jmpression. Newtownards was at one time extensively engaged in glove-making, the trade of Mr. Apperson's ancestors. It is a glover's shear that is represented upon the flags, and the withe above it was used to squeeze the oil out of glove leather. In the vicinity of the Abbey a number of the flags are preserved by Mr. Jamison. Among the handsome tombs of modern date in the Abbey Cemetery are those of the Parr and Corry families. The cemetery was enlarged not long ago, and is used *or burial purposes by Roman Catholics and Protestants. It is managed by a Burial Board, composed of Poor Law Guardians and Town Commissioners. TOWN GOVERNMENT, GAS WORKS, MARKETS, &c. NDER the provisions of a charter granted by James I., i6i3,Newtownards was governed by a corporation consisting of a provost, 12 free burgesses, and an indefinite number of freemen, assisted by two sergeants-at-

Vacancies among the free burgesses were filled from the rauks of the freemen, and the freemen were recruited by favor. The corporation eventually ceased to exercise its functions, with the exception of the holding of a quarter court by the provost. Until the Union two members were elected by the borough to the Irish Parliament. Newtownards is at present governed by 15 Commissioners, under the Towns Improvement (Ireland) Act, and the Sanitary Act. The gas works were purchased by the Commissioners in 1884, from a private company, with the approval of the Local Government Board and the rate-payers, for £9,836 10s. This amount was borrowed from the Board of Works, at 4 per cent. For the extension of the Movilla Cemetry ^2,000 was borrowed. Fairs are held on the secqnd Saturday of each month, and on January 23rd, May 14th, and Sept. 23rd. The weekly market is held on Saturday. An effort was made to establish a market also on Tuesday, but it ;did not succeed. A loan of ,£2,000 was procured from an insurance company in 1874 for the improvement of the market places. For a like purpose a further sum of ^750 was borowed in. 1878. Repayment of all the money borrowed is provided for by sinking funds. For the current year the general rate is rod. in the £, and the burial rate 2d. in the £. At present the supply of water is drawn from pumps in the streets, and from wells. The Union Workhouse is within the town limits. It has a farm of 9 acres, which the boys are taught to cultivate in conjunction with the able-bodied paupers. The boys also receive instruction from a tailor and a shoemaker who are officers of the house. Knitting and sewing are taught to the girls. Under the postal authority of Newtownards are 8 sub-post offices. With the exception of Ardkeen, Conlig and Cunningburn, all of these are dealt with under separate headings. The names of the landowners and principal tenant farmers of the three mentioned are given in the alphabetical list of " farmers, landowners, &c.," following the Newtownards trade directory. Ardkeen is a rural office, 11 miles, Irish, from Newtownards, in the vicinity of Portaferry, which see. Conlig is within i\ miles, Irish, of Newtownards, in the direction of Bangor. It had a population of 294 in 1881. The district is handsomely planted. Above «>e tillage, in the hill of the same name, are the lead mines, "-unningbum is a rural post office, 3 miles, Irish, from Newrownards, to the South-east. Within 2 miles of it is Mount *?tewart, a residence of the Marquis of Londonderry. The demesne is beautifully wooded, and the gardens are among the »nest in the county.

333 this place will be found under the head of stone monuments, for which see index. At the junction of High-street, Castle-street and Movilla-street stands the Cross of Newtownards, or to be more correct, the pedestal of the cross. It is hexagonal in form, with deeply recessed panels. The Montgomery arms are visible, also the date, 1636, but the inscriptions have almost disappeared. In 1666 it was erected by the loyal residents upon the site of the original cross, which is said to have been destroyed by the rebels in 1653. CHURCHES, SOCIETIES, &c, &c. HE Churches of Newtownards are numerous, and architecturally creditable. In Church-street the Church of Ireland has a prominent site. It is a noble edifice, constructed of freestone, and has a pinnacled tower and spire. The grounds are ample and tastefully planted. Kev. Canon Pooler, D.D., is rector. The Strean memorial Presbyterian Church occupies one of the corners of West-streei and Mary-street. It has a graceful tower and spire, and is an embodiment of good taste in its interior details. The Rev. Dr. Win. Todd Martin is minister. A fine Lecture Hall, forming part of the memorial, stands at the opposite corner. The lower story is devoted to the purpose of a first-rate Intermediate school, presided over by Mr. Robert M'Kee, M.A. The rest of the Presbyterian churches are plain buildings, with ample seating capacity. It is worthy of remark in connection with one of them, the Regent-street church, that it has had the continued care of tne same minister, Rev. Thomas Watters, for over 50 years. In August, 1885, there was a jubilee celebration by the congregation, and the occasion was taken advantage of to present Mr. and Mrs. Matters with a beautiful silver tea service and a purse of sovereigns. The Roman Catholic Church in North-street is an exceedingly handsome edifice. It is situated on the hill side, and has well kept grounds. Means of cultivating the mind are supplied by the Young wen s Mutual Improvement Society, non-sectarian, of which 'be Kev.

There are two Masonic Lodges, and a Masonic Hall in Regent-street, and another at Hartford in the vicinity of the town. Sixteen lodges constitute the strength of the Orange Society. The Orange Hall is in Upper Mary-street. The Ards Lacrosse Club was the first in Ireland. It was established in 1876, soon after the visit of the Canadians and Indians, and has about 30 members. The Ards Football Club, established 7 years ago, has 20 members. The Ards Bicycle Club was established in 1885. In 1881 the Ards Rifle Association was established. Among' the organizers were Messrs. W. Sibbald Johnston, J.P. ; Geo. Rowan Hamilton, J . P . ; Thomas Arnold, Hugh J. Johnston, Alexander Love, William Reid, and William Henry, editor of the Chronicle. The Club practises at the Government range. With ono exception, annual pri2e meetings have been held since the start. The members have taken part in the meetings of the xielfast and Ulster Rifle Associations, and have carried off several first prizes. Mr. W. Sibbald Johnston uses the Rigby match rifle, and the rest of the members the Martini-Henry. Mr. Johnston was one of the Scotch 8 at Wimbledon in 1885 and 1886.

337 THE ROYAL NURSERIES. lllSITORS to Newtownards, after having inspected the objects of antiquarian interest, cannot do better than wind up the round of sight-seeing at the nurseries of Messrs Alexander Dickson and Sons. They are within view of the railway entering the town from the Belfast direction. Here will be found the results of 50 years, spent in the most painstaking effort to reach the highest attainable rank among the seedsmen and nurserymen of the United Kingdom. The lands devoted to nursery purposes include about 30 acres, and in addition there is a farm of 110 acres, available for raising seed potatoes, and for testing seed oats, etc. Having plenty of room for experiments, Messrs. Alex. Dickson and Sons have succeeded in doing wonders in the various departments of their extensive enterprise. The raising of roses from artificially fertilized seeds is a special feature of their labors. It has enabled them to carry off over a thousand first prizes, medals and certificates of merit at shows throughout Great Britain and Ireland, and in the Isle of Man. Highest awards have been obtained at the shows of the Royal Horticultural Society of Ireland, Dublin, the Horticultural Society, Liverpool, the West of Scotland Pansey Society, Glasgow, and the West of Scotland Rosarians' Society, Helensburgh. It also secured their appointment to the position of nurserymen and seedsmen to H.R.H. the Prince of Wales. About two acres of the nursery are reserved for rose cultivation, and rhododendrons have an acre. The nursery on the Circular Road, about 12 acres, is used for the nurturing of coniferous and other trees, evergreen and flowering shrubs, including the latest novelties that have proved hardy out in the world. Thefinestyews in the County Down are in the Dickson nurseries. About an acre and a half of the 12 acre nursery is laid in grass, and set apart, without cost, for the annual show of the Newtownards Horticultural Society. It takes half and acre or more of glass houses to enable the firm to maintain an average annual production of about 30,000 pot plants. In the processes of development the plants pass through various houses, and are subjected to no end of atmospheric changes until they are ready 'or shipping. The firm of Messrs. Alexander Dickson and Sons was founded in 1836. Mr. Alex. Dickson died in 1880, since which time the business has been carried on by his son, Mr. J->eorge Dickson. A large amount of money has been spent in bringing the nurseries to their present state of perfection, and upon buildings in the immediate vicinity, including a handsome Pnvate residence and offices. The town establishment for the distribution of the nursery products, seeds, bulbs, etc., is at 55 Royal Avenue, Belfast.

Greer & Co. started a knitting factory here as an experiment. Attention was at first directed to the production of men's half hose, and ladies' and children's hose. It soon became apparent that the industry was well suited to the powers of the operatives of the town. Other lines were added, including knitted suits for boys, men's and boys' Cardigan jackets, ladies' jerseys, and knitted petticoats. With these an equal measure of success was achieved. A department was next added for the manufacture of shirts, fronts, collars and cuffs to suit the requirements of the trade, and in this also there were encouraging results. The embroidery of linen and lawn handkerchiefs was also undertaken as a special feature. Newtownards has long enjoyed a well merited reputation for the beauty of its embroideries, so that it was a comparatively easy matter to introduce a branch requiring talent of this kind. While the utmost attention is given to the development of each of the several departments, knitting is made the most prominent feature, none but the celebrated yarns being used. The knitting machines contain the latest improvements, and those employed for children's hose are able to put in double knees, ubIe heels and double toes, a very important matter to those 0 have large families, and arecompelled to economize. Messrs. Samuel R. Greer & Co. issue artistically prepared u ' f6 u S t o t ' l e t r a de, and seem to leave nothing undone to live "P to the promise of their trade mark, illustrated at the head of °e opposite apage.

34i THE ARDS WEAVING COMPANY. • MORE delightful or more healthful situation could not be found than that occupied by the factory of the Ards Weaving Company. In the view to the Southwest is the Scrabo Hill and Londonderry Memorial, and to the North-east, Helen's Tower, rising above the range of gentle cultivated hills, which contribute so much to the beauty of the scenery at Newtownards. The Belfast and County Down Railway runs across the valley to a station within seven minutes' walk, leaving nothing of the town in the prospect but the church spires. A handsome residence on the hill-side, above the factory, partly seen in the illustration, gives point to the combination of attractions in that direction. The Ards Weaving Company was established in 1882 for the manufacture of damasks, and linen and cotton cambrics. Yarns are procured from Belfast and other spinners, and the products, in the brown state, are sold principally to merchants at Belfast) Lurgan and Banbridge. The factory buildings are of brick, 240 feet long, and 210 feet wide, and partly cover premises consisting of about eight statute acres. Power-looms, to the number of 250, are in use, and have the latest improvements. A tandem steam engine, by Combe, Barbour and Combe, Belfast, drives the machinery. Water is procured from a small stream running through the grounds. It has its source in a reservoir among the hills, half a mile distant. Mr. J. Crawford Lindsay is the managing partner of the Ards Weaving Company. The other members of the firm are, Mr. John Lindsay, J. P., Ballydown, Banbridge; Mr. Walter Lindsay, J-P., Tullyhenan House, Banbridge; Mr. Samuel Black, J.P., Mr. John B. Black, and Mr. James A. Black, all of Belfast, the latter named gentlemen forming the Glen Printing Company. 1 he Ards Weaving Company at present employs 220 people, for whom it is intended that cottages shall be built in the immediate vicinity. Mr. Samuel Jones is manager of th,e factory.






343 THE KILTONGA BLEACH WORKS. HISTORICALLY the site of the Kiltonga Bleach Works shares interest with the remains of Movilla Abbey. In this peaceful vale, one mile, Irish, North of Newtownards, once existed the cell of Tonga. It is believed that the original name of the parish of Newtownards was Kiltonga. A cemetery of the Society of Friends lies to the left of the entrance to the works. There is nothing to indicate the names of the departed members. A slight sunken fence, the lines of which are followed by rows of stately lime-trees, divides it from the adjoining lands. The old grave-yard of Killysuggan, used exclusively for Roman Catholic interments, is at the opposite side of the Belfast Road. A rough stone wall was built round it less than two years ago, and certain improvements made in the interior. The estate upon which it is, belonged formerly to the Rev. Joseph Bradshaw. It is now owned by Mr. John Tate, J.P., Downpatrick. More than a hundred years ago, a bleach green existed at Kiltonga, but it was Mr. W. Sibbald Johnston, J.P., who first associated the name with bleach works. When he entered into possession about 12 years ago, there were traces of sprinkling channels, separated by narrow strips of green, curiously illustrating the ancient methods of bleaching. Mr. Johnston's buildings, of stone and wood, cover about four acres, and in these 90 people are employed in bleaching and finishing linen yarns. The finishing process is one which Mr. Johnston applies as a specialty. He has secured a patent for soft finishing of yarns. Belfast and County Down manufacturers and merchants supply the yarns as they come from the spinning mills. The stream running through the bleach works, used for power and other purposes, rises in what is called the Cairn Hill, one of the Scrabo range. It is impounded at Kiltonga, where it forms a handsome pond, and during the season of ice, is taken advantage of by the Kiltonga Curling Club, of which Mr. Johnston is president. Glen House, his private residence, occupies a beautiful acclivity, half a mile to the Southward.

BED-QUILT MANUFACTURE. | H E manufacture of bed-quilts at Newtownards, by Messrs. William Dobbin and Sons, has reached a stage of progress which brings it into the category of successful enterprises. About ioo people are employed by the firm in this specialty. The weaving is done on hand-looms, with the Jacquard attachment. Woollen and cotton yarns are chiefly used, but when desired, linen warps are substituted for cotton. Great attention is given to the designing department in order to keep up with the never-ending desire for novelty. Yarns are bought in the primary condition, and sent to be dyed in Paisley and Glasgow. The colors produced include green, scarlet, crimson, in three or four shades, sage, blue, in three shades, yellow, old and bright gold, black and brown, in several shades. Then there is snow-white, and whites varying in purity until they touch the level of gray. The effects produced with these materials are exceedingly harmonious, and indicate the possession of no small amount of artistic taste. In weight the quilts are from 4 lbs. to 8 lbs , and in width they run from 72 inches to 90 inch-s. The principal lengths are between 2 i yards and 3^ yards. Contracts for the supply of public institutions take a large part of the product. When stipulated, the names of the institutions and the dates of manufacture are inserted in the weaving process. Work is also done for the wholesale trade generally throughout the United, Kingdom, and New Zealand. Mr. Richard Dobbin, father of the senior member of the firm of William Dobbin and Sons, began the manufacture of linen with hand-looms, at Newtownards, more than a hundred years a go- During his life-time, Mr. William Dobbin acquired a thorough practical knowledge of the trade, and for many years superintended the weaving of muslins, on hand-looms, for Belfast nouses. He ultimately transferred his services in a similar capacity to Glasgow manufacturers, and through his agency •rom 1.000 to 1,400 people, residing in the town and district, received employment in the weaving of linen yarns. In 1873 he began to manufacture woollen shirtings, skirtings, etc., on his own account. Power-loom weaving having somewhat interfered, he, three years later, adopted bed-quilts as a special feature. •Mr. Hu^h B. Dobbin, one of the sons, is at present the managn S partner.

MESSRS. JAMES APPERSON & SONS. O industry at Newtownards more strikingly illustrates the possibilities of persevering effort than that carried on by the firm of Messrs. James Apperson & Sons. Mr. James Apperson is descended from a family of glovers, who resided in this town for many generations, the line ending with his father. - About 20 years ago he began the manufacture, with hand-looms, of striped woollen skirtings and shirtings, chiefly of the " Rob Roy" pattern, and sold the products to Belfast merchants. In 1879 he added bed-quilts to his list, and made them from various designs, including red and black flowers, "dices," composed of red, white, blue and black, " Alberts," composed of red and white, and "Castle," composed of red, with white spots worked with a sewing frame. Quilts gave place to woollen shawls and neckerchiefs in 1884. In this branch a high state of perfection has been attained. Only the common kinds are manufactured. These comprise from 40 to 50 patterns in gray, shades of green, and broken tartan. A change to more extensive premises at the top of Thomas street and Mark street, was also effected in 1884. Three additional warping mills were procured in the same year. Only one had previously been in use. A winding frame, and a two-horse gas engine by Clarke, to drive it, made the sum total of the accessions in 1885. Two power-looms were purchased at the beginning of 1886, l and the intention is to increase the number to six, and put in a " Pirn " winding frame before the close of the year. A large part of the work is still done by hand-loom weavers in town. About 150 people are employed in the busy season. Of these too are weavers. Belfast and Glasgow are the chief markets for the skirtings, shirtings, shawls, and neckerchiefs. From these points they are distributed through the wholesale trade of the United Kingdom. Mr. John Apperson, eldest son of Mr. James Apperson, became a member of the firm ten years ago. The style then was James Apperson & Son. Mr. James Appprson, jun., was admitted to partnership in 1884. and the style was changed to James Apperson & Sons. Mr. J. Francis Apperson, the youngest son,
was taken into the firm this year.

G R E Y ABBEY. | R E Y ABBEY is in the barony of Lower Ards, 6 miles, 11 Irish, South-east of Newtownards, and 7 miles, Irish, South-west of Donaghadee. It had a population ot 679 in 1881, and is one of the handsomest villages in the county. Two fairs are held in the year, March 28th and October 29th. About 40 hand-loom weavers live in the village. Women and girls to the number of 100, receive employment through sewed muslin-agencies. Strangford Lough approaches within half a mile, and vessels discharge coals into carts at low water. The lands of the district are suitable for pasture ana tillage. It is a good butter-making country, but more attention is given to tillage. Oats, potatoes, and flax are the chief crops. T h e attraction of this place, eclipsing all others, is the ruin ot the abbey from which the village is named. The most interesting portions are in a fine state of preservation. Grey Abbey was founded in 1192, for Cistercian monks, by Lady DeCourcy, wite

of the English adventurer, and daughter of < King Godfred, of the Isle of Man. It was richly endowed and flourished until Conn O'Neill's Rebellion, when the walls were very much injured. Sir James Hamilton received the abbey and its possessions in the Upper and Lower Ards from. James I. Mr. Hugh Montgomery, D.L., is the present owner of Grey Abbey and district. The demesne of his beautiful residence, Rosemont, adjoins the ruin of the abbey, the charm of which is very much enhanced by a baQk ground of forest trees. A magnificent yew stands near the eastern gable, which contains 5 windows, lancet shape, in almost perfect condition. The abbey and grounds are open to the public and are very much visited by excursionists and tourists The Black Abbey stood at a distance of about a mile and a half from Grey Abbey. It was founded by John De Courcy about the year u 8 o . .The last fragment pf ruin was removed by a farmer some years ago. Blacksmiths—J. M'Cartan, H. M'Carthy, W. Morrison Carpenters—Jno. Jas. & H.

IN THE LISBURN DISTRICT. IHE sub-post offices in the County Down, under the Lisburn jurisdiction, all receive moreor.less attention in this department. A part of the town of Lisburn is in the County Down, but as it is much the smaller, and belongs to the municipality, reference to it will be more appropriate in the Book of Antrim. Annacloy is a rural postoffice near Crossgar. Ballyaughlis is a rural post-office, including the district of Drumbo, two miles, Irish, North-east of Lisburn. It is also called Gardeners' Lane Ends. Boardmills is a village of 12 houses, 5 miles, Irish, South-east of Lisburn. Kilmore is a village of about 30 houses, one mile, English, West of Crossgar. Lisbane is a rural post-office, within two m >les Irish, of Killinchy, and three miles of Comber. Lisnastrain is a rural post-office, two miles, Irish, East of Lisburn. Ravarnett is a rural post-office, two miles South-east of Lisburn. Letters are sent direct from Lisburn to these offices, and in. every instance should be addressed to Lisburn.

BA.LLYNAHINCH. |N 1881, Ballynahinch had a population of 1,470. It is situated on the river of the same1 name, in the barony of Kinelarty, 8 miles East of Dromore, by road, 2\\ miles South of Belfast, by the Belfast and County Down Railway, and 9 miles, by rail, North-west of Downpatrick. Ballynahinch consists of a square and several streets. The houses are nearly all well built, and the places of business are well kept, and impress the stranger most favorably. Being situated in the centre of a first-rate agricultural country, a great portion of which has a limestone basis, the market for form produce, held every Thursday, is stocked to repletion, and buyers are numerous. There is no town in the county where the market produces so complete a transformation from the routine of daily life. Every street has its scene of bustling activity, and in the Market Square, at some time of the day, all the energy is

concentrated. A fair is held on the third Thursday of each month, and hiring fairs on the last Thursday in October, first and second Thursday in November, the last in January, the first and second in February, the last in April, the first and second in May, the last in July, and the first and second in August. The manufacturing industries within the town limits are of exceedingly modest proportions. A hemstitching factory employs about 200 people, irregularly, arid about 400 receive employment through sewed muslin agencies. Within 3 miles, Irish, of the town, at Drumaness, included in the postal district, there are spinning mills giving employment to about 450 people. The Churches of Ballynahinch include three belonging to the Presbyterian body in town, and one at Spa,> within two miles. There is also a methodist church, a Roman Catholic church, and a Church of Ireland. From the architectural point of view the two last named are the most interesting. Both have handsome itowersand spires, and occupy prominent sites in Church-street. The Methodist church was built in 1856, and about five years : ago a manse was built for the minister at a cost of ,£600. The .first Presbyterian church was reseated in 1885 at a cost of about ^500. In the cemetery attached to it, are the tombs of many of the old families of the town and district. The second Presbyterian church dates from 1841. About five years ago a manse was built by the congregation for the junior minister, Rev. R. G. Milling, at a cost of ^750. Some years since the third Presbyterian church was rebuilt. There is a good Templars Lodge, containing about 80 members ; an Association for the maintenance of scriptural Presbyterianism, of which Mr. John Cooper is president; two Orange lodges ; a football club, established in 1885, Mr. W. Martin, Capt., Mr. John Smith, secretary, and Mr. Robert Lemon, treasurer; and a. cricket club, established this year, Mr. John Scott, capt., and Mr. Samuel Morrow, secretary. Ballynahinch as a town began to be known in history in the J7'h century. It was founded by Sir George Rawdon, Bart., after the war of 1641, and confirmation of title to the manor was grarfted to the Rawdon family by Charles II. It was inherited by the Earl of Moira, a descendant of Sir George Rawdon. He built a linen-hall, but it did not prove a success. The Ker family acquired the estate by purchase, the present owner being Capt. R. W. B. Ker, M.P. During the Rebellion of 1798 a most determined battle was fought here. The insurgents took possession of Windmill Hill, at the North side of the town, and of the hill in the Moria demesne, now Montalto, at the South side, on the way to Dromara. General Nugent, on the 12th June, arrived

from Belfast at the head of the Monaghan Militia, a detachment of the 22nd Dragoons, and some volunteer infantry and cavalry. Having effected a junction with the forces of Colonel Stewart, who had advanced from Downpatrick, the entire force under his command numbered 1,500 men. An attack made on Windmill Hill resulted in its abandonment by the rebels. They joined their comrades in Moira demesne. Early on the following morning the fighting was renewed, and maintained with great determination for about three hours. At the entrance gate to the demesne, the Monaghan Militia endeavored to make a stand, with two field pieces, but the rebel pikemen charged so furiously that they fell back in a state of demoralization, upon the Hillsborough cavalry. In the meantime the Argyleshire fencibles were making an attack at another side of the hill, producing a diversion which afforded an opportunity for rallying the Monaghan and Hillsborough contingents. The rebels throughout displayed great courage, but they were ultimately compelled to fly to the mountains of Slieve Croob, where the main body was dispersed, and there was an end to the Rebellion in so far as it related to the County Down. The Belfast Museum has some of the " finds " from the battle field. A cavalry sword, dug up by the late Mr. James Stranaghan, a resident of the vicinity, is preserved by his son-in-law, Mr. John Dornan, Banbridge. At Spa, about 2 miles from Ballynahinch, to the Southward, there is a sulphureous chalybeate spring, much frequented in summer by persons afflicted with scrofulous diseases. The valley in which it is situated is beautifully planted. Captain Ker owns the spring, and permits the public to use the waters free of charge. The shortest way to the wells lies through the demesne of Montalto, which Capt. Ker also generously opens to the public. Dunmore, a rural post-office, is also in the Ballynahinch delivery.

CROSSGAR. ||ROSSGAR had a population of 743 in 1881. It is a station on the Belfast and County Down Railway, Si miles, English. North by West from Downpatrick, and 2 l | miles by rail South-east from Belfast. Mr. James Cleland owns the village, and a part of the district, the lands of which are of average quality. Potatoes, oats, flax, and some wheat are grown, and dairy farming is carried on to a considerable extent. A market is held weekly, on Wednesday, for butter, eggs, and fowl. From 200 to 300 women and girls receive employment through sewed muslin agencies. Two handsome churches with graceful spires, one belonging to the Presbyterian body and the other to the Roman Catholics, serve to accentuate the attractions of the village. Crossgar has a Football Club with about 30 members in good standing. The parish of Kilmore includes Crossgar. and many of the residents of the latter take a deep interest in the continued success of the Kilmore Sabbath School Union (Presbyterian). The Jubilee of the Union was celebrated on July 4th of the present year. Rev. T. S. Woods preached the sermon "n the occasion, concluding with a powerful appeal to his large audience never to depart from the " old paths," in matters of doctrine or modes of worship Listooder, a rural post-office, 2\ miles distant, is served from Crossgar.

DROMORE. ||ROMORE, in the barony of Lower Iveagh, had a population of 2,491 in 1881. It is a station on the Great Northern Railway, 17J miles, English, from Belfast, and 7 miles, English, from Banbridge. The situation of the town in the Lagan Valley, is exceedingly beautiful. Within a short distance, in every direction, there are handsome private residences, and richly wooded demesnes. In the approach by rail the most striking feature in the first view is the great fort at the Eastern end. At the North side of this fort there is a treble fosse, and at the South an out-post sloping to the bank of the river. Various excavations have been made in it with a view to the discovery of hidden wealth. The last one was attended with such consequences to the nervous system of one or two men engaged in the enterprise, that the earth was not replaced. Within the past 15 years there has been a great change for the better at Dromore. A desire to give it a prominence among the principal county towns has been manifested in various ways. The appearance of the business houses has been very much improved, and the new houses added during the time mentioned constitute fully a third of the number inside the boundary. In 1885 the portions of the town divided by the Lagan were connected by a new bridge, 23 feet 6 inches wide, constructed of granite from the design of Mr. Wm. McKeown, C.E., Assistant County Surveyor. It replaced a bridge which was only 13 feet 9 inches wide. Among the houses rebuilt in the square, that of Mr. Robert S. Edgar is the finest. Neither in style nor finish would it be out of keeping in a thoroughfare of Belfast or Dublin. Most extensive changes have been made at the expense of the ratepayers, including a new market place, inclosed in the middle of the Square, and a new Town Hall. To complete these a sum of .£3,500 was borrowed from the Board of Works in 1885, repayable by sinking fund in 50 years. Of this amount £ 1,500 was paid for a reversionary interest in the market tolls, acquired from


fcf" Commissioner for taking Affidavits for the Supreme Court of Judicature.

the last holder of the clerkship of the market, under the authority of the Bishops of Dromore. Markets are held on Wednesdays and Saturdays, and there is a fair held on the second Saturday of each month. Immediately after the passage of the Towns Improvement (Ireland) Act, advantage was taken of the lighting and cleansing clauses. In 1881 the ratepayers decided to secure powers under all its provisions. Nine Commissioners are elected. The general purposes rate for the current year is I s. in the £. HISTORY, CHURCHES, CASTLE, SOCIETIES, &c. | HE history of Dromore begins with the time of St. Colman, who founded an abbey here, which secured valuable possessions early in the loth century. Its treasures were supposed to be so great that the Danes frequently made excursions to it for plundering purposes. The Abbey ultimately became the head of a see, with St. Colman as the first bishop. Dromore from that period down to the time of James II. and William III. has suffered from many conflicts and burnings. The O'Neills, MacCartans, and Magennises, in their numerous differences, added greatly to the troubles of the inhabitants. In the reign of James I. the see, found in a state of suspended a* imation, was re-established, and re-endowed with lands extending through several parishes. The Cathedral was re-built, and a palace for Bishop Buckworth was in progress of erection when the forces directed by the parliament at Kilkenny, 1641, set fire to the town, destroying nearly everything it contained, including the cathedral and the palace. Until some time after Charles II. ascended the throne, very little was done to change this condition of things. The famous Jeremy Taylor having been appointed Bishop of Dromore, and of Down and Connor, in 1660, built the present church on the site of the cathedral. He caught fever in 1667 and died in a few days. Although a native of Cambridge, England, he preferred Dromore as a last resting place, and his remains were interred under the chancel. The church was constituted a cathedral by Act of Parliament in the reign of George II. Under the Church Temporalities Act it was provided that the sees of Down, Connor, and Dromore should be united on either becoming vacant. The union was effected in 1842. Thos. Percy, author of the Key to the New Testament, Ac. was Bishop of Dromore for nearly 30 years, from 1782 and during his time, the church was altered and improved, and it has been maintained in good condition ever since. The interior is chaste. There is a handsome pulpit in Caen stone and marbles, and several stained windows contrasting most agreeably in difference of style and deli-

cacy of color. Loyola House, in the vicinity of the town, was for many years the palace of Bishop Percy, whose taste in planting is manifest to this day in the beautifully wooded hills forming a demesne of 211 statute acres. The property was purchased from the Church Temporalities Commissioners by Messrs. Edward and James Quinn, whose remains are entombed in the cathedral church-yard. The Jesuit Fathers purchased of the executors of the brothers in 1883, and the former palace was opened in the following year as a novitiate house for the Society of Jesus in Ireland. Very Rev. Wm O'Farrell, S. J., brother of the Bishop of Trenton, N.J., was the first rector. He was succeeded in 1885 by the present rector, Very Rev. John Colgan, S.J. There are two Presbyterian churches in Dromore, of good capacity, and a Methodist church, built in 1871. The Roman Catholic church of St. Coiman occupies an excellent site. It is a handsome edifice in the early English Gothic style, and dates from 1871. Very Rev. Wm. M'Cartan, V.F., was appointed P.P. in 1859, since which time he has expended about ,£17,000 upon new buildings, and in the purchase of parochial property. There is a debt of ^1,500. , The old Cross of Dromore, which has been neglected for many years, is hereafter to occupy a pedestal in a triangular space where the road from Banbridge leads into the town and divides at the East end of the Cathedral. The Castle of Dromore, now owned by Mr. Wm. Harrison of Ballaney, is only a fragment in comparison to what it was. Mr. Wm. Clarke, whose place of business is near it, declares that not a stone has dropped out in 25 years. It was built by Wm. Worsley for the protection of his father-in-law, Bishop Tod. A newsroom in connection with an enterprise for the supply of refreshments on temperance principles, was established in 1885, and has been very successful. The Masonic and Orange bodies are well represented in the town and district. The Dromore Parish Cricket club has about 20 members. " INDUSTRIES. fROMORE was at one time better known than any part I of Ulfter in connection with linen manufacture, and it still maintains a reputation for the fine quality of its productions. The firm of Messrs. Wm. Spiott & Co. founded in 1850, and now consisting of Mr. William and Mr. James Sprott, employ from 300 to 400 hand-loom weavers in the manufacture of linens. Messrs. Wm. B. Miniss and Fons are manufacturers of hemstitched and fancy handkerchiefs. The firm was established in

The linen and cambric are manufactured on the premises from linen yarns only. Messrs. Wm. B. Miniss and Sons employ in their own houses from 400 to 500 people at weaving and hemstitching. They have had the honor of filling an order for linen cambric handkerchiefs given by H. M. Queen Victoria. At the left side of Church-street, entering the town from therailway station, the hemstitching factory of Messrs. John Harrison & Co., occupies a conspicuous position. Tamboring, hemming, and finishing cotton handkerchiefs, are done here for the leading commission and shipping houses of Manchester, Glasgow, and Belfast. The handkerchiefs are sent to the factory in the piece, and are finished and reshipped to the houses to which they belong, or in their interest, to fill orders in different parts of the United Kingdom. About 350 girls are employed by Messrs. John Harrison & Co., all of a better class than those engaged in spinning mills and weaving factories. They live in the town and vicinity, and are paid by the piece. Intelligence and skill count for much at labor of this kind, and girls who possess both, make good wages. Mr. John Harrison, J.P., head of the firm, is chairman of the Town Commissioners. His private residence, Mariville, stands in ornamental grounds adjoining the factory premises. The firm of Messrs. John Harrison & Co. has been established about fifteen years. Mr. John Hamilton, T.C., came to Dromore fifteen years ago to work his patents in hemstitching and embroidering for the sole use of Messrs. Henry Matier & Co., of Belfast. He then had several patents, valuable in this particular field of activity. A beginning was made in Market-square with rooms. After some years had elapsed Mr. Hamilton purchased ground in Meeting-street from Mr. John White of Belfast, and built a factory 100 feet long, 35 feet wide, and 3 storeys high, on the most improved principles for the admission of light and air. He continued to work his patents for Messrs. Henry Matier & Co., and to improve hemstitching machinery. His latest improve-

ment is a hooking, counting, and measuring machine, patented by Hamilton & Woods, in 1885. This is also used only for Messrs. Henry Matier & Co. The factory is constructed of brick, and extends from Meeting-street to the edge of the River Lagan. From 400 to 500 people, women and girls, are employed. Of this number some receive work to be done at their own homes. The product of the factory is sent to the warehouse of Messrs. Henry Matier & Co., Belfast. Messrs. William Jardine & Co., Market Square, are manufacturers of shirt-fronts, and manufacturers and finishers of handkerchiefs. The firm was established about the year 1843, and devoted its entire energies to the weaving of fine and coarse linens with hand-looms. In 1868, attention was turned to the making of linen shirt-fronts, and to the hemming and finishing of handkerchiefs by machines. About the year 1877 a department was devoted to the hemstitching and embroidering of fancy handkerchiefs, in from forty to fifty different styles. The other departments were maintained with equal energy. Belfast and Manchester are the principal markets for shirtfronts, and Belfast and Glasgow for handkerchiefs. Messrs. William Jardine & Co. employ 275 women and girls in their factory, and give out work to from 50 to 100 to be done at their own homes. All live in the town and vicinity. The factory buildings consist of a hollow square, 85 feet long, 50 feet wide, and four storeys high. They are constructed of brick, and are well lighted and ventilated. The firm of Messrs. Sprott & Heggan was established in 1884, for the machine hemstitching and finishing of cambric handkerchiefs. The range of work runs from the plainest hemstitching to the most delicate and artistic embroidery. It also includes the attaching of hems in various colors and fabrics. Much taste is required for the successful development of an industry of this kind. Messrs. Sprott and Heggan do a great deal of the finer sorts of needlework, a fact which prevents a very rapid increase in the number of people employed. At the time of my visit, in March of this year, they had 125 women and
• 2B

girls. Goods are made up for manufacturers of Belfast, Glasgow, and other parts of the United Kingdom. The factory is entered from Market Square. It is constructed of blue stone, and is 65 feet long, 24 feet wide, and three storeys high. The firm consists of Mr. Robert Sprott, J. P., Dromore House, and Mr. James Heggan, Mount street. MESSRS. THOMAS McMURRAY & CO. JJN the approach to Dromore from the Banbridge direction, the Bleach Works of Messrs. Thomas McMurray & Co. are seen from the viaduct of the Great Northern Railway. They are situated in the Lagan valley, and help to form a picture of the most charming character. The viaduct rises above the valley to a height of 74 feet, and consists of seven arches. Messrs. Thomas McMurray & Co. are manufacturers of linen and cambric handkerchiefs, and bleachers and finishers. The linens are of every grade from coarse to the finest shirting and household. In cambric they manufacture in all the degrees of fineness from 6°° to 25°°. The premises consist of 32^ statute acres. Upon this there are several buildings. The largest is about 120 feet long, 40 feet wide, and two storeys high. Water and steam in conjunction are used for power purposes. Entering the town from the railway station, the first large building seen on the right in Church-street contains their lapping rooms, warehouse, and offices. The firm of Messrs. Thomas McMurray & Co. is one of the oldest in Ireland. It was established by Mr. Geo. McMurray, of Waringstown, near Lurgan, about the year 1750, for hand-loom cambric weaving. Mr. Thomas McMurray, his son and successor, removed to Dromore in 1827 and established the present concerns for bleaching and weaving. Soon after his arrival he added linen

weaving. He was succeeded at his death by his son, Mr. William McMurray, and Mr. William McClelland, his son-inlaw. Mr. William McClelland died about 20 years ago, since which time Mr. William McMurray has been head of the firm, and resides at Percy Lodge, immediately adjoining the railway station. Messrs.

Conifers, and Variegated Hollies, are grown extensively. The Nursery will well repay a visit at all seasons. HILLSBOROUGH. flLLSBOROUGH is in the barony of Lower Iveagh,

!2 miles, English, South-west of Belfast, on the Great Northern Railway. It had a population of 797 in 1881. The lands of the district are good for pasture and tillage. Oats, potatoes and flax are the chief crops. Dairy farming is carried on to a considerable extent. A fair is held on the third Wednesday of each month, but although there is a market house and market place, markets have ceased to be held. The village is well built, and beautifully situated. Many handsome residences are in the vicinity, chief among the number

being that of the Marquis of Downshire. Cromlyn was the original name of Hillsborough. The change was effected by Sir Charles Hill, projenitor of the Marquises of Downshire. He built a castle in the reign of Charles I., and William III. slept in it while hi< army was encamped under the walls. The castle is in a tolerable state of preservation. Charles II. made it a royal fortress and Sir Arthur Hill and his successors hereditary constables, with 20 warders, and a well appointed garrison. The warders continue to be enlisted, and to turn out on occasions of state in uniforms of the original pattern. They muster regularly every Sunday in the parish church. On the highest elevation above the village a monument, about 150 feet high, surmounted by a statue, was erected to the 3rd Marquis of Downshire, 1848. In the village, opposite the Church of Ireland, a statue in bronze, supported by a granite pedestal, commemorates the 4th Marquis, 1868. The M aze races, referred to in the chapter on racing, are held in the vicinity. By charter of Charles II. Hillsborough once elected a sovereign and 12 burgesses. It returned two members to the Irish Parliament until the Union, when the borough was abolished and the Marquis of Downshire received ,£15,000 compensation. THE HILLSBOROUGH LINEN COMPANY, LIMITED. I HE factory of the Hillsborough Linen Company, Limited, is situated at a distance of about a mile, English, West of Hillsborough, and less than half a mile from the railway station. Buildings, three storeys and two storeys high, cover about two acres, and on 26 acres there are 52 workmen's houses. Altogether the premises connst of about 140 statute acres, including a grazing farm. There are 318 looms, with the latest improvements. The manufactures include towelings, diapers and damasks. Yarns spun from Irish and Belgian flax, are chiefly used. The products are sent to the markets of the United Kingdom and to the United States and Canada. An engine, 135 horse-power, drives the machinery in summer. In winter a turbine wheel, equal to 70 horse-power, is used as an auxiliary. The buildings belonging to the Hillsborough Linen Company, Limited, originally served the purposes of a distillery, operated until the time of his death, about twenty years ago, by Mr. Hercules Bradshaw, a celebrated man on the turf, and the

owner of Barbarian, once a favorite for the Derby. A short time after the demise of Mr. Bradshaw the distillery was acquired by a Limited Liability Company, and changed into a woollen factory. A second limited liability company was formed while the concern was in full operation. It bought out the first company, and continued to work until 1876, when a change was made from woollens to linens, the company re-organized and its name altered to the Hillsborough Linen Company, Limited. Some of the shareholders of the first company have stock in the present successful enterprise. Mr. J. J. Pim, of Lisburn, is managing director, and Mr. Arthur Pim, secretary. Mr. Arthur Pim resides at Culcavy Cottage, in handsomely planted grounds. About 300 people are employed in the factory; of this number more than half are females. At the entrance to the factory there is a school under the National Board of Education. It is chiefly attended by children of the company's operatives. The first story of the school-house serves as a reading and recreation room. It was established by the company for the workmen, who manage it by committee for their own benefit. Baker—J.

KILLYLEAGH. JJILLYLEAGH is charmingly situated on the western shore of Mrangford Lough. It is in the barony of Dufferin, a little more than 4 miles, Irish, West by North from Crossgar, the nearest railway station. Lord Dufferin is the principal owner of the district, the land of which is good for pasture and tillage. The crops are potatoes, oats, wheat, flax, and turnips. It is a fair butter-making country. Lord Dufferin also owns the harbor. The depth of water at the pier-head, spring tides, is from 13 to 14 feet. Vessels discharging or taking in cargo, pay 2|d. per ton register ; nothing on cargo. Until within the last few years there was a large export trade in potatoes. Coal and salt are the imports. Killyleagh has two extensive spinning mills. About 150 people receive employment through sewed muslin agencies. T h e ruins of a small market-house exist, but no market is held. Fairs are held on the ioth of April and n t h of October in each year.

There is a first-rate cricket club, and a most successful regatta is held annually in August. The Killyleagh, Killinchy, Kilmood, and Tullynakill Farming Society holds its show here every second year. See Farming Societies. There are Lodges of the Masonic I and Orange societies. Killyleagh had a population of 1,835 >n 88i. The district was important before the arrival of the English adventurer, John DeCourcy. It formed part of the MacCartan country. Hugo White erected a castle here in the 16th century. He held extensive possessions by favor of Queen Elizabeth. The O'Neills and MacCartans soon afterward joined forces, and drove the Whites from the Castle and the barony. At the close of Conn O'Neill's Rebellion, the MacCartans forfeited their territory. It was given with Comber, Holywood, and other places, to Sir James Hamilton, afterward Lord Clandebcye. He restored the castle. In the war of 1641 it was taken by the Parliamentary forces. The mother of the present owner, Col. G. R. Hamilton, spent a large sum in restoring the castle, the latest improvement having been made in 1870. The outer wall, facing Strangford Lough, a splendid piece of masonry, was built by the present Lord Dufferin. Killyleagh received a Charter of Incorporation from James I., under which a provost was annually elected, and returned two members to the Irish Parliament until the Union. Sir James Stevenson Blackwood, Bart., afterward Lord Dufferin, received ,£15,000 compensation for its disfranchisement. Remains of the ancient parish church still exist. In the grave-\ ard attached to it there is much that is interesting from the antiquarian point of view. The post-offices of Derryboy, Raffrey, and Toy are served with the mails from Killyleagh.
