          A small seaport town in County Down, about twenty six miles from Belfast and three from Castlewellan, situated on the shore of Dundrum Bay. It is resorted to by many respectable families in the Summer, being a very fine bathing place. There are several large and handsome private dwellings, and numerous well furnished lodging houses; hot, cold and shower baths; and a handsome hotel built by Earl Annesley. The Earl's marine residence is Donard Lodge, laid out with great taste; and near it is a chalybeate spa, to which the public have access. The Slieve Donard mountain, at the foot of which is the Lodge, rises to the height of 3,000 feet above the sea. The places of worship in the town are - The Episcopalian Chapel of Ease - a handsome building; a Presbyterian church, a church for Wesleyan Methodists, a Roman Catholic chapel. There are schools, supported principally by the Earl and Countess Annesley. The population of the town in 1861 was 1,400.

          Is an extensive market town and Parliamentary borough, in Down and Armagh counties, fifty miles N. by Dublin, and thirty from Belfast; comprising within the Parliamentary boundary 2,543 acres, of which 629 are in the town, and 1,914 in the rural district; population in 1861, 12,188 inhabitants. It is situated near the mouth of the Newry Water, which discharges itself into Carlingford Bay, five miles from the town. There are eight bridges, four of which are stone, and cross the river which separates the counties of Armagh and Down; the others are iron and wooden drawbridges across the canal. Newry is a very ancient town. In 1175 Maurice McLaughlin, King of Ireland, founded an abbey here, to which great immunities and endowments were granted, and afterwards confirmed by Hugh de Lacy, Earl of Ulster, in 1237. The abbot exercised Episcopal jurisdiction over the lordships of Newry and Mourne, which authority is now enjoyed by the trustees of the late lay proprietor (Earl Kilmorey), who, among other privileges, grants marriage licenses, and transacts the usual business of an ecclesiastical court, with as plenary and indisputable powers as any other ecclesiastical court in Ireland. They appoint a vicar to discharge the ministerial duties; and as, by virtue of the patent, they enjoy all Episcopal powers which can be possibly vested in a layman, the vicar is responsible for his conduct to them alone, and is not amenable to either bishop or primate. No writs can be served by the sheriff within the limits of the jurisdiction without (if the right were insisted on) their concurrence. The trustees, by virtue of this patent, are entitled to the tithes of the lordship of Newry, and have the right of presentation to the rectory of Mourne. In 1689 the Duke of Berwick, to secure his retreat to Dundalk from the English forces, under the command of the Duke of Schomberg, set fire to Newry, and left it in a very destitute and ruinous condition. The Northern entrance of the town is adorned with a chaste and elegant obelisk of chiselled granite, erected in honour of the late highly respected and generally lamented Trevor Corry, Esq., a favourite magistrate for many years. The Corry Arms, beautifully executed on Portland stone, appear on the North and South recesses, and eulogistic inscriptions on black marble are executed on the West and East sides of the monument. Immediately opposite is a neat, capacious edifice, known as the Orange Hall, erected by the Orangemen of the district, on a site granted by the Marquis of Downshire, in which the meetings of that body are usually held. The public buildings are - two Protestants churches (one of which was erected as far back as the reign of Elizabeth), five Presbyterian churches (three of them connected with the General Assembly), three Methodist churches, one Independent chapel, and two Roman Catholic chapels, two convents, two court houses, two bridewells, union workhouse, Scriptural schools, Freemason hall, national model school, fever hospital, Bank of Ireland, savings' bank, and barracks. In the ground in front of the Savings' Bank is placed a large Russian gun, beautifully mounted, as a memorial to the Newry heroes who fell in the Crimea. There are several corn and flour mills, a brewery, ten tan yards, three coach and car manufactories, iron and brass foundries, and spade and shovel manufactories. The other manufactories are linen, yarn, cotton, salt, iron, cordage &c. Quarter sessions are held here, as also in Ballybot, for a portion of the County Armagh. There is a fair on the first Monday of every month in that portion of the town, in the County of Armagh, called Ballybot; markets on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays - all toll free. The borough returns one Member to Parliament; constituency, under 13 & 14 Vic., cap. 60, in 1857, 510. The Bank of Ireland, the Belfast, the Northern, and the Provincial Banks have branches here. The port admits vessels of 1,000 tons to Warrenpoint, five miles from the town, where the larger vessels remain, but those drawing fifteen feet of water can go up by the ship canal to the Albert Basin, Newry. Barges ply by the Newry Canal Navigation to Lough Neagh, thirty two miles distant inland. The Newry Navigation Company have the management of the port and canal, the latter of which extends along the West side of the river. Steam boats regularly sail to Liverpool; and one steamer sails from Newry to Glasgow every week. A steam collier trades between here and the coal ports in England and Scotland. The Belfast Junction Railway passes convenient to the town, and at Goragh Wood is joined by the Newry and Armagh line branch into Newry, and thus the communication by railway between Newry, Dublin and Belfast is complete. The Newry and Armagh Railway is now open to Armagh direct, passing through Markethill. The Newry, Warrenpoint, and Rostrevor Railway is completed to Warrenpoint. A new railway company has been formed, called the Newry and Greenore Railway, and it purposes making a line, in connexion with the Newry and Armagh Railway to Greenore, passing through Omeath and Carlingford, thence to Greenore. It is understood that a steamer will run from Greenore direct to Holyhead, which is about the same distance from Holyhead as Kingstown. The principal exports are linen cloth, grain, provisions, cattle, eggs and butter.

          Is a market town in County Down, eight miles East from Belfast, situated near the Northern extremity of Lough Strangford. James I., after the forfeiture of the surrounding territory by O'Neill's rebellion, granted lands and the neighbouring monasteries to Sir James Hamilton and Sir Hugh Montgomery, from whom they passed to the Mount-Alexander family, and from them by exchange into that of the Colville family, whose remains are interred in the old church, and from them to that of Londonderry, and the present Marquis is now the proprietor of Newtownards, and a large extent of country around. In the square stands the commodious Town Hall, erected in 1770 by the first Marquis of Londonderry. Nearly in the centre of the town stands the lofty and beautiful pedestal of an ancient cross, erected in 1636, ornamented with armorial sculptures, defaced by the rebels in 1653, and restored by the inhabitants in 1666. Mount Stewart, the seat of the Marquis of Londonderry, is within three miles of it. The weaving of muslin employs a large number of the male population, and the embroidering of muslin, for the manufacturers of Belfast and Glasgow, a considerable number of females. About a mile from the town, convenient to the road leading to Bangor, are extensive lead mines, held on lease from the Marquis of Londonderry by a spirited company; the ore, which is very rich, is shipped at Bangor, for Flint, in North Wales, where it is smelted. There are likewise, in the neighbourhood, at Scrabo, several prolific quarries, producing a stone little inferior to that of Portland. A handsome monument to the memory of the late General, Marquis of Londonderry, is erected on Scrabo Hill. The General Sessions for the county are held quarterly, in the Court house, and Petty Sessions on the first and third Saturdays of every month. The Parish Church, built in 1817, is an elegant cruciform edifice, with a lofty and finely proportioned spire enlarged in 1844 at considerable expense, and in 1867 a new north aisle added to it, which will give accommodation for 900 sittings, at a cost of 2,800. The four Presbyterian churches are convenient and neat edifices. The other places of worship are churches for Unitarians, the Wesleyan and New Connexion Methodists, two Covenanting Meeting Houses and a Roman Catholic chapel. There are - a Fever Hospital, Dispensary, Union Workhouse, and public schools; among the latter is a large one supported by the Londonderry family. The new Model School is a splendid building, situated on the Old Belfast Road leading to Scrabo. The Belfast Banking Company have erected a handsome branch bank in the town. The market, which is held on Saturday, is abundantly supplied with provisions of all kinds, cattle &c. The annual fairs are held on the 23rd January, 14th May, 23rd September, and second Saturday of every month. The County Down Railway has a station at Newtownards, and trains run six times daily between it and Belfast. The Messrs. Walker & Bell have a flax spinning mill in the Castle Gardens, which gives employment to a great number. Population in 1861, 9,543.

          Or, more properly, Limavady, is a place of great antiquity. It was the residence of the celebrated O'Cahan, or the modern O'Kane, who was chief of one of those powerful "septs" of Ulster that were so constant and determined in their opposition, at all times, to the English, from the year in which Sir John de Courcy received this Northern province from the first of the Plantagenets till the days when they were finally subdued under the first of the Stuarts. Through the middle of Newtownlimavady, beautiful for situation, flows the Ruagh (Anglice, Roe) or red river, so called from its muddy waters. The vale of the Roe has been designated by an able writer "the garden of the North." The chief places of antiquarian interest are the "Limavady," alluding to the "Dog's Leap;" "O'Kane's Rock," in Deerpark; the foundations of the old castle, close by; "McQuillan's Grave," near the "Curly Burn;" and the ruins of Drumachose ancient church, in Drenagh, with its burial place, bearing evidences of Cromwell's sojourn in this island. With the different revolutions of this country this town is honorably associated. In 1641, during the O'Neill persecution, it suffered greatly; in it a large body of horse, A.D. 1688, was raised for the defence of Derry; through it King James, with Marshal de Rosen and the Duke of Berwick, passed to besiege that city; and at Newtownlimavady, during the rebellion of 1798, a small band of yeomen opposed the march towards the Maiden City, from Belfast, of 5,000 United Irishmen, and thereby gave the death blow in the North to that fraternity. Newtownlimavady has good facilities for trade. Daily communication with Derry and Belfast, by means of rail and telegraph, is available. The town can now boast of a public hall, erected at a cost of 2,000, Mr. Samuel Mercer being the builder, a large amount of the outlay being defrayed by public subscription. It contains an assembly room, an ante-room, a news-room, a savings bank, and caretaker's rooms. There are two spacious market places, owned by private individuals. The new market (now in possession of R. Macrory, Esq.) is being converted into a large steam mill. A spinning and weaving factory has also been built at Ballyclose, by the Limavady Spinning and Weaving Co. T. Lowry, Esq. (of the firm of Lowry, Valentine & Kirk, Belfast) is the chairman of the Board of Directors; H. Reynolds, manager; and R. Osborne, clerk. A spinning factory has also been built at Carrick (two miles distant), by Andrew Given, Esq. Various arrangements have been recently made for the better conducting of sales, and it is hoped that these changes will improve the already good trade of this locality. Of our several benevolent and beneficial associations the most interesting are the Young Men's Societies. Of these there are three - the Mutual Improvement, the Christian Association, and Parochial Young Men's Christian. With these may be connected the Bible and Colportage Society, together with the Provident Society, managed by a committee of the ladies of the town. Another institution worthy of mention is the Kennaught Farming Society. It is for the encouragement of agriculture, and the rearing of a superior class of cattle. The population of the town in 1862 was 3,000.
