      Carrickfergus, an ancient market town, and maritime county of a town and parliamentary borough, situate on the N. shore of Carrickfergus Bay, or Belfast Lough, and enclosed on all other sides of Antrim County, is eight miles from Belfast. Carrickfergus was formerly a place of great strength, and is rendered memorable by the landing of King William, in 1690, previous to the battle of the Boyne. The suburbs are divided into two sections - the Irish Quarter and the Scotch Quarter. The first obtained its present appellation after the year 1677, when the Lord Lieutenant, the Duke of Ormond, issued a proclamation commanding all Roman Catholics resident in cities, corporate towns and forts, to remove beyond the walls. The Scotch Quarter is occupied chiefly by fishermen. The castle, supposed to have been built by Hugh de Lacy, in 1100, is a noble structure, situated on a rock projecting into the sea; the inner yard, containing the barrack, &c., is large and extensive. The walls are of an immense thickness. The batteries have recently undergone improvement, and have been mounted with Lancaster guns. The magazine in the main building is bomb proof, and the different apartments upwards are occupied as stores for arms and other warlike implements. The view from the top is singularly extensive and beautiful. The liberties of the town and county of the town of Carrickfergus extend for miles and is distinct from, but locally in, the County of Antrim. The landing pier has been much improved, and vessels of one hundred tons can now discharge at it. Salt was discovered at Duncrue (Carrickfergus), on the property of the Marquis of Downshire, in 1851; a company has since been formed to work the salt mine, and large quantities of rock are annually exported to England and elsewhere for purification. The imports consist of coal, timber, slates, barley and salt; and the exports of cattle and grain. The Parish Church of Saint Nicholas possesses a few monumental memorials, the most remarkable and worthy of notice being one of the Chichester family. Its public buildings are the Town Hall, Market place, Parish Church, two Presbyterian, an Independent, and two Methodist Churches; Roman Catholic chapel, Court house and Jail.  The corporation, which was styled "The Mayor, Sheriffs, Burgesses and Commonalty of the Town of Carrickfergus," under the provisions of the Municipal Reform Act was dissolved, and a board of Municipal Commissioners constituted, in whom is vested the corporate property, valued at 350 per annum. The borough returns one member to Parliament; constituency under 13 & 14 Vic., c.69, in 1864, 1082.  The town has much improved of late, and the several factories in the neighbourhood contribute greatly to its general prosperity, together with its fisheries, the district of which comprises sixty one miles of maritime boundaries, and had, a number of years ago, 433 registered vessels, employing 1,307 men and boys. The oysters taken off the coast are prized for their size and flavour. The customs duties having been purchased up in 1637, and the custom house transferred to Belfast, its value as a shipping port has ceased. The Northern Bank has a branch in the town. Carrickfergus is the head quarters of a coast guard division, as also of a constabulary district, comprising the stations of Carrickfergus, Ballyclare, Larne and Whitehouse. A branch of the Belfast and Northern Counties Railway terminates at the town, and a railway has been opened between it and Larne.  There are two hotels, the Victoria and the Old Rock, both in High Street. In 1851, the population of the town was 3,548; and in 1861, 4,028.

        Castledawson town, in County Londonderry, about twenty four miles from Belfast, is delightfully situated on the Moyola River, on the road from Magherafelt to Ahoghill, and rather more than two miles N.W. of the North-Western extremity of Lough Neagh. The river is crossed by a stone bridge of one arch, supposed to be the largest span in Ireland, erected by the Dawson family, and hence its former name of Dawson's Bridge. A second bridge has since been erected. Its present appellation is derived from its proprietor, Joshua Dawson, Esq., who, in 1710, was Chief Secretary for Ireland, and erected, in 1713, a castle, of which only the ruins remain. Castledawson, the present seat of the family and residence of R. Peel Dawson, Esq., M.P., D.L., is nearly adjoining the town, situated in a beautiful demesne, through which passes an ancient avenue, three miles in length, opening to a magnificent view of Lough Neagh, to which it extends. The manufacture of cotton prevails in the town and neighbouring district, and the making of coarse earthenware and bricks is carried on most extensively. The stained glass windows of the church are much admired. There are also places of worship for Presbyterians and Wesleyan Methodists. A school house has lately been erected at the entrance to Moyola Park, by the Hon. Mrs. Dawson, at a cost of upwards of 200, which makes four schools in all, under the National Board. Population in 1861, 663.

          Is a thriving market town, in the County Down, sixty three miles N. by E. from Dublin, nine S.W. from Downpatrick, ten from Ballynahinch, and four miles from the fashionable watering-place of Newcastle. At the foot of Slieve-na-lat (or the Rod Mountain), and on the shores of a beautiful lake, abounding with trout, stands the new and magnificent mansion of the Earl Annesley, who enjoys the title of Baron of Castlewellan, in the Peerage of Ireland. Within two miles of the town is Tollymore Park, the elegant seat of the Earl of Roden. There is a branch of the Northern Banking Company, also three Savings' Banks. The linen trade is carried on largely.  The spinning, weaving, and bleaching concerns of Messrs. Murland are on an extensive scale, propelled by steam and water power, and lighted by gas made on the premises. These enterprising and public spirited gentlemen give large employment in the neighbourhood, and greatly benefit the locality. The church was erected and endowed by Earl Annesley, at a cost of 6,000 or 7,000. It is built in the early English style of blue and white granite. There is also a Presbyterian and Methodist churches, and Roman Catholic chapel. The Court House stands in the centre of the town, in which Petty Sessions are held once every month. The market is on Monday, and the fairs monthly.  Population in 1861, 849.

        Is a maritime and Parliamentary borough in the N.E. Liberties of Coleraine, 145 miles N. from Dublin, comprising a municipal area of 207 acres, in the County of Londonderry, 44 miles N. of Belfast. It is a manufacturing and commercial town, and is situated on the River Bann. This town has been long remarkable for the fineness of its linen cloth, the excellence of its salmon fishery, and the beauty of its rural scenery. The population in 1861 was 5,631, inhabiting 1,079 houses. The town is built on each side of the Bann, four miles from the sea, over which is a splendid stone bridge of three arches, ninety six yards in length by thirty two in breadth, and cost 14,500; erected in 1844. The public buildings are - two Parish churches, three Presbyterian, one Independent, one Methodist, one Baptist Meeting House, and two Roman Catholic Chapels; the Town Hall, Court House, new Market place, and an Endowed School. A National Model School and Academical Institution have lately been erected in Killowen, adjoining the town. Coleraine Parish Church - built in 1613 - is one of the oldest in the North of Ireland. The linen trade has been long and extensively carried on here, particularly in a fine description called "Coleraines," the annual sales of which have been known to amount to about 600,000; but latterly this branch of manufacture has fallen off.  Coleraine is rapidly improving in spinning and weaving factories, and also in pork-curing establishments. Here also soap, candles and leather manufactured. The salmon and eel fisheries on the river are farmed at 1,200 annually by the Irish Society to Messrs. Alexander, of Newtownlimavady. A brisk export trade, chiefly to Glasgow by steam, is carried on through Portrush, the shipping port at the mouth of the Bann; vessels of 200 tons can discharge at the quay of Coleraine. The Provincial Belfast and Northern Banks have branches here. Gas Works have been erected. The Workhouse was opened on the 11th April 1842. The borough returns one member to Parliament; constituency in 1866, 252. The ancient Curfew Bell is still rung at the Town Hall, daily, at 5-45 a.m. and 9 p.m., ending with tolling the day of the month. There is a steamer for towing vessels from the bar up to Coleraine quay. A steamer plys twice a week to Toome. Quarter Sessions are held here, and Petty Sessions every second Friday. Fairs are held on the 12th May and 12th November for the sale of black cattle and for hiring farm servants. Horse fair second Tuesday in February, August and November. Markets on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, for grain; and Saturdays for general market. The town is the head quarters of the Constabulary of the district. Rateable value of property, 11,569.

          Cookstown is a flourishing and respectable market town in County Tyrone, thirty five miles W. from Belfast, with direct communication by rail with Belfast, very pleasantly seated on the Kildress rivulet, and on the great North Road from Armagh. The mansion or castle of Killymoon is a superb edifice, in the Saxon style, built from designs by Nash, at a reputed cost of 80,000; John Douglas Cooper, Esq., J.P., proprietor. The staple of Cookstown is its linen trade, in which many respectable merchants are embarked. There are several flax mills and corn and meal mills in the neighbourhood. At Millburn Works, near the town, John Gunning & Sons, have a power loom weaving factory for the manufacture of plain linens, diapers and damasks, which contains over 300 looms, and when in full operation will give employment to more than 500 hands; they have also added a large beetling and finishing concern, which is driven by steam power. Petty Sessions are held each alternate Friday by the local magistrates. The Town Commissioners meet the first Monday in each month, in the Town hall, James' Street; David H. Charles, Esq., M.D., chairman for the time being. The site of the new mansion on Loymount, the property of John Gunning, Esq., J.P., is the finest about the town, having a view of a large part of the County of Antrim, as well as of Lough Neagh. The Parish Church of Derryloran has lately been rebuilt. The other places of worship are three Presbyterian churches, two Methodist meeting houses and a Roman Catholic chapel. There are several Educational and other Charitable Institutions - the former comprises National and Ragged Schools, supported by public subscription. The market days are Tuesday and Saturday, the latter for farming produce, which is brought in abundance, the former for grain. Fairs - First Saturday in each month.  Population in 1861, 3,513.

Post-Office, James Street - Margaret Patterson, postmistress. Letters from Dublin and all parts of the South of Ireland, also from England and Scotland, arrive every morning at 6-20 and 8.15, and are despatched every morning and evening at 6-50 and 8-45.

      A market town in County Cavan, sixty six miles N.N.W. from Dublin, fifteen South from Monaghan, pleasantly situated on the Cootehill River, and on the road from Dublin to Clones. The town consists of four spacious streets, and the country around is embellished with some handsome mansions. The linen branch prevails in the district, but not so extensively as formerly, and in the town are established branches of two banks and a savings bank. The principal hotel here, the Bellamont Arms. General Sessions of the Peace are held four times in the year, and Petty Sessions every second Saturday; they are held in a neat court house, at the back of which is a secure bridewell. There are eight places of worship - the Parish Church, two Presbyterian Churches, two Methodist Churches, a Meeting House for the Society of Friends, A Moravian Chapel and a Roman Catholic chapel. The church, situated at the lower extremity of the town, fronting the Main Street, is a large and handsome structure, in the Elizabethan or Tudor style of architecture, with a tower surmounted by a spire. The charities comprises a handsome school house, built by the Rev. J. R. Darley, for education, and supported out of his own private purse;  a dispensary, a union workhouse, and a school under the National Board of Education. The markets are Friday and Saturday - the former for general produce, the latter for grain. Fairs, third Friday in every month. Population in 1861, 1,994.

        Is a small post-town, parish of Camlin, in the County Antrim, fourteen and one-third English miles W. to N. from Belfast, situated on the road between Antrim and Lurgan, and two miles and a half East of the head of the bay of Lough Neagh. On the Camlin, which skirts the town, and from which river its name is a corruption, are extensive corn and flour mills. From the situation of the town near Lough Neagh, it derives facility of communication by water with Belfast, Newry, Antrim, Magherafelt and other towns. Petty Sessions are held on the second and fourth Monday of every month. The Parish Church was destroyed by the army of James II., in 1689, and its ruins, which are very interesting, remain a monument of the sacrilegious act. The Presbyterians and Unitarians have each a place of worship; and there are two free schools and a dispensary. One of the schools was built and endowed by the late Major General the Hon. Sir H. R. Pakenham, of Langford Lodge; the other is under the National Board of Education. Fairs, the first Monday monthly. There is also a market every Monday for the sale of pork, butter and eggs. Population on 1861, 459.
