Larne, a market town and seaport in
County Antrim, is seventeen miles from Belfast, nine miles North from
Carrickfergus, lying on the road from Glenarm to Belfast, at the head of
Lough Larne, on the coast of the North Channel, in the Irish Sea. The
town, which was originally called Inver, is divided into the old and new
towns, the latter consisting chiefly of one long and regular street, the
houses of which are of stone, and well built, but the streets of the other
section are neither so spacious nor so well paved. On a peninsula,
called the Curran, stand the ruins of Oldfleet Castle, and on the road to it
are the remains of a little chapel called Drumalas. The castle is
supposed to have been erected by one of the Bissetts, a powerful Scotch
family, in the time of Henry III. At this spot Edward Bruce landed in 1315,
with the design of making himself King of Ireland, causing much bloodshed,
and producing many dreadful calamities to the English settlers in this part
of the kingdom. The trade of the port of Larne has been gradually
improving for the last seven years. The imports of foreign grain for
the last three years, would average thirty cargoes yearly, yielding each
year a revenue of upwards of £1,700. The exports are lime, limestone,
whiting, beans, flour, oats, barley, pork and butter, it has been said the
fourth part of all the beans exported from Ireland are shipped at the port
of Larne. The shipping belonging to the port numbers upwards a 100
vessels. There are some good quays on both sides of the Lough, about a
mile from the town, the water not being of a sufficient depth to float
vessels further up. The linen and bleaching business is carried on.
The neighbourhood is pleasant, and the land of the district fertile.
Several handsome houses have been erected in the town and neighbourhood.
In the Summer season, Larne receives many visitants, attracted by its
advantages as a salubrious retreat and well adapted bathing place.
Patty Sessions are held every alternate week. The church was repaired
and much altered in 1819, previous to which it had some specimens of ancient
architecture. The other places of worship are three Presbyterian
churches and a Roman Catholic chapel, rebuilt in 1858. Two very
handsome mission houses have been built and endowed by Mr. John Getty, of
Belfast. The town was lighted with gas in 1851. There is an
excellent market each Wednesday for pork, butter, grain and potatoes.
The monthly market is held for the sale of black cattle, horses, sheep pigs
&c., on the second Thursday of each month. Fairs, July 31st and
December 1st. Population in 1854, 3,076.

Lisburn, is a market town and Parliamentary borough,
partly in County Antrim, seven miles S.W. by South from Belfast. The
place, which, in the reign of James I., and long subsequent, was called
Lisnegarvey, was raised from obscurity chiefly by Edward Viscount Conway, to
whom Charles granted the manor of Killultagh, and this nobleman built a
castle, which became the head of the manor. Soon after the erection of
the castle, some English and Welsh families were induced by the proprietor
to settle here, and thus the foundation was laid of a town, which has
subsequently become one of large population, and considerable manufacturing
consequence. The spinning of flax, and the manufacture of linen and
linen thread, and damask, together with bleaching, is carried on extensively
in the town and its neighbourhood, particularly at Lambeg. Near the
middle of the main street is rather a spacious triangular area, in the
centre of which stands the market house. The castle gardens are kept
in fine order, at the expense of the Marquis of Hertford, as a public
promenade for the inhabitants. Altogether, Lisburn may be pronounced
one of the handsomest and cleanest towns in Ireland, and its inhabitants
most respectable. According to its present municipal boundary it
contains 1,364 acres, population in 1841, 7,524, inhabiting 1,071 houses,
population in 1851, 6,567, inhabiting 987 houses, present population, about
8,000. The town is situate on the Lagan. The borough returns one
member to the Imperial Parliament - constituency in 1858, 287. The
present representative is Jonathan Richardson, Esq., Lambeg. The
seneschal of the manor of Killultagh, William Gregg, Esq., is the returning
officer. The same gentleman holds a court for the manor, which has
jurisdiction to £20, every third Thursday, and courts-leets twice a year.
Petty Sessions are held in a large handsome court-house fortnightly.
The parish church is a spacious and handsome building, with a tower, in
which an octagonal spire was added in 1808, at the expense of the Marquis of
Hertford, and a fine organ has been presented to it by the same nobleman.
It is the cathedral church of the united diocese of Down and Connor and
Dromore, and contains a few interesting monuments, amongst which is one to
the memory of the celebrated Dr. Jeremy Taylor, who died here in 1667.
There is also a church on the line of the road to Hillsborough. The
other places of worship are a Presbyterian church, a Roman Catholic chapel,
a meeting house for the Society of Friends, Wesleyan and Primitive Methodist
chapels, and a Salem chapel. The principal market day is Tuesday.
The fairs, which are large, are held on the 21st of July and 5th of October,
two new fairs have lately been established, one on the first Tuesday in
January, the other the first Tuesday in May.

Londonderry, a maritime city and Parliamentary
borough, in County Londonderry, sixty nine miles N.W. by West from Belfast,
comprising an area of 497 acres within its municipal boundary. The
city is situate on a hill, 119 feet above high water, projecting into the
Western side of the River Foyle, and is surrounded by an ancient rampart, a
mile in circumference, with six gates, beyond which the buildings have been
considerably extended. A square in the centre, from which the four
principal streets diverge, is called the Diamond. As a business and
manufacturing city, it is of considerable importance, and the fisheries of
the Foyle give employment to a large number of people. The original
name, Doire, or place of Oaks, was first Anglicised Derry, and the prefix of
London was added by charter of James I., 1613, on the incorporation of the
Irish Society. In 1689, it successfully sustained a desperate siege,
protracted for 105 days, against the army of James II. The guns used
on this memorable occasion are preserved, and the principal one, "
Roaring Meg," 11 feet long, 4 feet 6 inches in circumference, is still
to be seen on the walls. These walls remain almost as perfect as when
built, more than two centuries ago. The public buildings, and the
ecclesiastical edifices, the Walker testimonial monument, and its situation,
being "city on a hill," gives Londonderry a most effectively
picturesque appearance. The river is crossed by a wooden bridge 1,068
feet long, connecting the city with the suburb of Waterside, on its East
Shore. A new iron bridge is in course of construction. It will
cost upwards of £60,000. The new line of quays has been completed at
a cost of £30,000. The new graving dock is to be completed this year
at a cost of £20,000. The harbour has also been improved, about £30,000
having been expended in deepening "The Flats," dredging &c.
The public buildings are - the Cathedral of the see of Derry, and two other
Episcopal churches, six Presbyterian churches, an Independent and two
Methodist Meeting Houses, two Roman Catholic Chapels, the Episcopal Palace,
Foyle College, Magee Presbyterian College, Gwyn's Charitable Institution,
National Model School, the County and city Court House, Prison, and
Infirmary, Corporation Hall, the Custom House, the District Lunatic Asylum,
Workhouse and a Barrack. In one of the city bastions there is a pillar
erected in memory of the Rev. George Walker, governor of the city during the
siege of 1688-9. There are several flour mills, two distilleries, two
breweries, two large and several small rope walks, two foundries and five
tan yards. The city returns one member to Parliament, constituency in
1853, 823. The Municipal government is vested in the Mayor, elected by
the corporation, six aldermen and eighteen councillors, and borough
magistrates, appointed by the Lord Lieutenant. The Mayor is also a
magistrate for the county during the time of his Mayoralty. The
Recorder holds Quarter Sessions. The fairs are held on the 17th June,
4th September and 17th October, besides a monthly horse fair. Markets
on Wednesdays and Saturdays, flax market day, Thursday. The Bank of
Ireland and the Provincial, Belfast, Ulster and Northern Banks, have
branches here. The Savings' Bank was established in 1815. The
Lunatic Asylum, erected at an expense of £25,678, maintains 214 patients.
The Union Workhouse was opened 10th November, 1840. The port is formed
by the River Foyle, which here expands into a spacious and navigable
estuary, possessing great natural advantages. It is under the
jurisdiction of the Irish Society, who appoint a Vice Admiral over it and
the lough and the adjacent coast. It is also in charge of a Board of
Ballast Commissioners. There are several steamers belonging to the
port, which ply to Liverpool, Glasgow and Belfast. Londonderry and
Dublin are connected by railway, and the Coleraine and Derry line of railway
is also complete, thus connecting Belfast to Derry by railway. The
coasting trade is considerable. An extensive emigration takes place,
chiefly to the United States and Canada. The Montreal Steam Shipping
Company's line of screw steamers, carrying mails, call and depart weekly.
Their station is off Moville, in Lough Foyle. Population in 1851,

Loughbrickland, is a small post town
in County Down, situated on the road from Newry to Banbridge, within three
miles of the latter, and on the lake from which its name is derived, which
is said to have obtained its appellation from the speckled fish with which
it formerly abounded. The Parish church of Aghaderg is rather a
handsome structure, having a square tower, surmounted by an octagonal spire,
it stands in the centre of the town, and opposite to it is a Roman Catholic
chapel. A Presbyterian meeting-house, and a chapel each for
Covenanters and Wesleyan Methodists, are the other places of worship.
There are National and Parochial schools for gratuitous instruction.
Fairs are held on the 3rd Tuesday in every month. The population is

Lurgan, is a thriving market town, in County Armagh,
seventeen miles S.W. from Belfast, and on the line of the Ulster Railway,
for which the town is a station. The principal part of the town
extends, for nearly a mile, along the Belfast and Armagh road, and is
spacious, airy, well built and remarkably clean. That which may be
considered the suburban part of Lurgan is extensive, and has extended very
much since 1851, principally on account of the increase and extension of the
linen and cambric manufacturing, and also the granting of leases in
perpetuity by Lord Lurgan. Several new streets are laid off, and are
rapidly filling up with buildings, particularly since the introduction of
the Towns' Improvement (Ireland) Act, 1854. Brownlow House, the seat
of Lord Lurgan, proprietor of the town, extends along the North East of it,
and the entrance is by as elegant lodge from near the centre of the street.
The mansion was some years ago rebuilt in the Elizabethan style, with
beautiful freestone brought from Scotland. The grounds which are
generously thrown open to the public, are richly embellished with thriving
plantations, reflected in a fine sheet of water, and encompassed by a well
kept gravel walk. The Court House is a stone building and the Diaper
Hall is a spacious building erected in 1825. The linen and cambric
manufacturer is the staple trade of Lurgan, and in producing the variety of
fabrics, as lawns, diapers, damasks (and of late years a large number of
persons are employed in the manufacture of cambric handkerchiefs) &c., a
large proportion of the population of the town and its vicinity are
employed, while some of the establishments of the yarn and linen merchants
are extensive. Two noted breweries and the hotels are the other
principal establishments. The Belfast Banking Company, the Northern
Banking Company, and the Ulster Bank, have each a branch in operation here.
A facility of intercourse with Belfast is afforded by Lough Neagh and the
Lagan Navigation. The general quarter sessions of the county are held
in Lurgan and the petty sessions every alternate Tuesday. A section of
the constabulary police is stationed in the town, which has lately been made
a first class station. The parish church of Shankill is a handsome
structure, but is to be pulled down immediately, and be replaced by one
considerably larger, which will have 2,000 free sittings. There are
places of worship for Presbyterians, the Society of Friends and Wesleyan and
Primitive Methodists. The Roman Catholic parochial chapel is a Gothic
building. The free educational establishments are - a school supported
by Erasmus Smith's charity, and an infant school solely supported by Lady
Lurgan. A Mechanics' Institute is established in the town. It
was originated by William Watson, Esq., of New York, who, while on a visit
to his native town, generously offered the princely sum of 1,000 guineas, as
a commencement. His brothers, Francis and Hugh Watson, Esqs., most
liberally seconded his views, and subscribed £500. The whole £1,500
was to be paid on a similar sum being raised by the inhabitants. Lord
Lurgan met this generous offer in a kindred spirit, and the sum of £1,500
has also been subscribed by his Lordship and the other inhabitants.
The other charities are a dispensary and a Union Workhouse. The
market, which is held on Thursday, is abundantly supplied with provisions,
and is besides a considerable one for the manufacturers of the town and
district. Fairs, 5th August and 22nd November.
