Antrim, a market town (formerly a Parliamentary
borough), in the County of Antrim, 13 miles from Belfast, 93 miles from
Dublin, 8 1/2 from Ballymena and 4 from Randalstown, situated on the banks
of the Sixmilewater River, on the great road from Belfast to Londonderry.
This town, which is situated in one of the most beautiful and fertile
valleys in the county, was anciently called Entrium or Entrium Neagh,
signifying, according to some authorities, "the habitation upon the
waters." In 1649 the town was burned by General Monroe; and
during the disturbances of 1798 it was the principal scene of hostilities
which occurred in the county, and here the insurgents were defeated with
great slaughter. Adjacent to the town, on the demesne of George J.
Clarke, Esq., J.P., is one of those round towers so often met with in
Ireland; it is 95 feet in height and 49 in circumference, is of four
stories, and its summit surmounted by a cone. Closely contiguous to
the town is Antrim Castle, an elegant, spacious and stately building, the
ancient residence of the Earls of Massereene, now the property of Viscount
Massereene and Ferrard, who is also proprietor of the town. Shane's
Castle is situated about two miles West of the town. The Castle itself
is in ruins, having been burned down, by accident, in the year 1816.
By extensive and costly additions, however, to a pile of buildings near the
site of the original structure, a very commodious mansion, where the present
owner resides, has been constructed. The parks and grounds )which are
extensive) are kept in the highest state of order by their amiable
proprietor (the successor of the last of the O'Neill's), and are thrown open
to the public, who, during the Summer months, visit them in large numbers.
Paper Mills, celebrated for the superior quality and exquisite finish of the
article produced, have been here long established. The Muckamore flour
mills are also of long standing; and, in addition, new flour and meal mills,
of considerable power, have recently been constructed contiguous to the
railway station, by a very popular and influential proprietor; resident in
the neighbourhood. The town has been placed under the Towns'
Improvement Act since 1855, and its municipal affairs are administered by
nine commissioners, the chairman of whom is Lord Viscount Massereene.
Gas Works have also been erected, and the town lighted. General
Sessions of the Peace are held four times a year, and Petty Sessions every
third Wednesday. The Court-house, situated towards the foot of the
town, is a commodious building. The Belfast and Ballymena Railway
passes at an inconsiderable distance North of the town. Lough Neagh
approaches within half a mile of the town, and communicates with the latter
by the Sixmile River. A new wharf has just been completed, under the
supervision of the Board of Works. The church is a neat edifice, with
a square embattled tower, surmounted by a finely proportioned octagonal
spire; there are two Presbyterian churches, one Unitarian, two Methodist and
one Roman Catholic chapel. The Union Workhouse, a public Dispensary,
and free schools, comprise the principal charities. The markets, which
are efficiently conducted, are on Tuesday and Thursday. Fairs, January
1st, May 12th and November 12th. The parish of Antrim contained, in
1851, 5,074 inhabitants, and the town 2,772 of that number.

Armagh, an inland city and Parliamentary borough,
thirty miles distant from Belfast, comprising within its ancient boundary as
area of 1,147 acres, and within its present municipal boundary 269 acres.
It is the seat of the Archiepiscopal see of the Primate of all Ireland,
whose ecclesiastical province comprises six consolidated dioceses:- 1.
Armagh and Clogher; 2. Tuam, Ardagh, Killala and Achonry; 3. Derry and
Raphoe; 4. Down and Connor and Dromore; 5. Kilmore and Elphin; 6. Meath.
The town stands on the acclivities of a hill, of which the cathedral,
repaired and beautified, chiefly at the expense of the present venerable
Primate, tops the summit; there are also a Protestant Chapel-of-Ease, three
Presbyterian churches, two places of worship for Methodists, one for
Independents and a Roman Catholic chapel (a Roman Catholic cathedral has
been in course of erection for some years but is not yet completed).
The other public buildings are the County Court-house, Prison, Infirmary;
Fever Hospital, supported by the present Lord Primate; the District Lunatic
Asylum for Armagh, Cavan, Fermanagh and Monaghan counties (which maintained
135 patients in 1851), the Royal School; a public Library, built and endowed
by Primate Robinson, in 1741 and lately rebuilt and improved (it contains
about 14,000 volumes, some of them considered very scarce, and open to the
public from twelve to three o'clock): a Market-house, erected by the late
Primate Stewart; a Linen-hall, a Yarn-hall, Music-hall and Tontine Buildings
(in which there is a large public Assembly-room and a spacious News-room); a
National School, a Sunday-school; a school for the Choristers, which is
maintained by the Vicars Choral. Near the city id the Archiepiscopal
palace, with a domestic chapel; the deanery; an observatory, erected A.D.
1793, with a very superior astronomical apparatus; and barracks for 200 men.
In or near the city are two distilleries, not now worked; a brewery and
several tanneries and flour mills. The Callen, a branch of the
Blackwater, passes near the town, and the Ulster Canal within four miles.
The Ulster Railway connects the town with Belfast and Monaghan.
Population in 1851, 9,036. The corporation, which was styled "The
Sovereign, Free Burgesses and Commonalty of the Borough of Armagh", was
abolished by the provisions of the Municipal Reform Bill. The borough
returns one member to Parliament; constituency in 1857, 404. The
lighting, cleansing and watching the streets is vested in commissioners,
under the 9th Geo. IV., c.82. Markets are held on Tuesdays, for
general purposes; and on Wednesdays and Saturdays for grain. The toils
have been bought up by the inhabitants, for the improvement of the town.
Water is supplied by pipes, the management of which is vested in the Police
Commissioners; and the streets and the interior of many of the houses are
lighted with gas. There are branches of the Bank of Ireland, Belfast
Banking Company, Northern Banking Company, Ulster Banking Company and
Provincial Bank of Ireland. The Savings' Bank was established in 1818.
The Union Workhouse was opened in 1842. Two newspapers are published
in Armagh, the Armagh Guardian and the Armagh Gazette.

Aughnacloy, a market town in the county of Tyrone,
forty-one miles from Belfast, and containing at present about 2,000
inhabitants. The town consists of one long street, and several
diverging streets and lanes - considerable improvements in the appearance
and general management of the place have been made during the last few
years. It is well lighted with gas. The markets held every
Wednesday are excellent; and the fairs, held the first Wednesday in each
month, are inferior to few in Ulster. Petty Sessions are held each
alternate Monday; and there is a considerable constabulary force stationed
in the town, including a head and two constables. The parish church,
erected by the late Acheson Moore, Esq., is a spacious structure, with a
fine tower and handsome spire, also an excellent bell and clock. The
other places of worship are - a large Presbyterian church; a handsome
Wesleyan chapel, erected by a bequest from the late Captain Moore; a
Primitive Wesleyan preaching house; also a Roman Catholic Chapel, nearly a
mile from the town. The Jackson almshouse, endowed by the late
Alexander Jackson, M.D., Madicus Regius for Ireland, intended for the
accommodation of fourteen inmates, seven males and seven females, "who
have seen better days," is a handsome building, erected at a cost of £3,500.
