A thriving market town in County Derry, thirty six miles N. by W. from Belfast. It consists of one long and spacious street, from which several smaller ones branch off, the principal of which are Main and Hall Streets, which are making great progress in improvements. The houses, which are chiefly built of stone, and are modern buildings, have a respectable appearance. Linen cloth is the staple trade. Petty Sessions are held on the last Saturday of each month. A constabulary station is in the town. The market days are Tuesday and Friday - the former for flax, pork, horses and cattle, butter, eggs, fowl and general merchandise ; and the latter for corn. Fairs are held on the last Tuesday of every month

Is a market town in County Derry, thirty five miles N.N.W. from Belfast, situated on the road from Coleraine to Dungannon. It is a well built town. There is a fine Market House. The town is the property of the Salters' Company of London. The linen manufacture employs a large proportion of the inhabitants. Brewing, tanning and the general grain business are extensively carried on. The Belfast Banking Company and the Northern Banking Company have branches here. General Quarter Sessions of the Peace are held in the Courthouse in January, April, July, October, as also Petty Sessions on the second and last Wednesdays of each month. The Parish Church is a beautiful edifice, built in 1857, at a cost of 7,000. The Presbyterian Church cost 3,000, also a school house. The ground for erecting these buildings upon was giver gratuitously by the Salters' Company. There is a Wesleyan Methodist Church, and a Roman Catholic Chapel. The charities comprise - a Dispensary, a Union Workhouse, and a number of Free Schools. A beautiful free school, entitles "Rainey's Foundation School," has been recently erected. The principal market is held on Thursday, and that for oats on Monday, and wheat on Wednesday. On the second Thursday in every month there is a large linen market: and extensive cattle markets or fairs are also held monthly. The fairs are held on the last Thursday of every month. The parish of Magherafelt, in 1876, contained 6,592 inhabitants, and the town 1,399 of that number. A new Courthouse has recently been erected, the builder of which, George R. Tipping, deserves great credit for the manor in which he carried out the contract under the County Surveyor - it cost about 5,000, and is a great ornament to the town. The Salters' Company through their respected agent, H. E. Cartwright, Esq., J.P., subscribed very liberally to its erection

The town, though small, is clean and consists of one long spacious street, containing  a handsome Court House. Petty Sessions are held on last Wednesday of each month. The church was erected at the joint expense of Sir John Rawdon and the Earl of Hillsborough. It is a large and handsome Gothic edifice, with a square tower, surmounted by a spire, and from its situation above the town, forms a conspicuous and picturesque object in this well planted district.

In the County Derry, 32 Irish miles W.N.W. from Belfast. The town and a large tract of the adjacent country are the property of the Drapers' Company, London, who have greatly improved the town and district. Petty Sessions are held on the first Tuesday in each month. The whole estate belonging to the Company, comprises 56 townlands. The Parish Church of Desertlyn, in the town, is a very elegant structure in the Norman style, erected in 1832, at an expense of 6,000, wholly defrayed by the Drapers' Company. The Drapers' Company, also built at their expense the Rev. Dr. Barnett's Presbyterian Church, at a cost of 4,000, and subscribed liberally to the building of the Rev. W. Sharp's Presbyterian Church. Since the estate came into their possession, they have expended 50,000 in the improvement of the town of Moneymore alone, exclusive of about 100,000 upon other portions of their property. The weekly grain market is held on Friday, and the fair is held on the 21st of every month. Population in 1877, 700.

Moy is a small market town in County Tyrone, 49 miles S.W. from Belfast, situated on the river Blackwater, on the road from Armagh to Dungannon. It was designed in the year 1764, by the late Earl of Charlemont, the proprietor, after the plan of Marengo in Italy. Two quays on the river were erected by the Charlemont family, with extensive stores ; and the Blackwater being navigable from Lough Neagh for lighters of sixty tons burden, an immediate communication is formed between Belfast and Newry, by the Lagan and Newry Canals, and with Lough Erne by the Ulster Canal. There is a Court House and News Room. Petty Sessions are held every second Wednesday. In the immediate neighbourhood are several extensive linen manufactories. The church is in the early English style, with a handsome square tower. There are places of worship for Presbyterians, Independents, Wesleyan and Primitive Methodists and Roman Catholics. On an adjacent hill is Roxborough House, the beautiful residence of Lord Charlemont, originally commenced in 1774 by his uncle, the Hon. Francis Caulfield. On the first Friday of every month is held one of the best attended horse fairs in the North of Ireland.
Charlemont, a market town in County Armagh, divided from Moy by the Blackwater River, over which is a neat stone bridge of five arches, built about 1706, and rebuilt in 1858 by the two counties - Tyrone and Armagh. It is a perfect model in style and architecture, and adds considerably to the towns it unites together, as well as the magnificent entrance of the Earl of Charlemont, which it immediately adjoins. The Castle was built in 1602. The town participates with Moy in the linen manufacture. A new church was erected in 1833, on ground given by Lord Charlemont. It is a handsome structure, resembling in front one of the grand altars of Yorkminster. The celebrated and pious John Wesley frequently preached in Charlemont, and occasionally in the fort.

Is an extensive market town and Parliamentary borough in Down and Armagh Counties, fifty miles N. by Dublin, and 30 from Belfast, comprising, within the Parliamentary boundary, 2,543 acres, of which 629 are in the town, and 1,914 in the rural districts ; population in 1871, 14,158 inhabitants. Constituency, 1,197. 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. 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 Protestant 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, one Dominican Chapel, two Convents, two Court Houses, two Bridewells, Custom House, Union Workhouse, Scriptural Schools, Freemason Hall, National Model School, Fever Hospital, Bank of Ireland, Savings Bank and Barracks. There are several corn, flour and spinning 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, mineral water works, etc. Extensive waterworks have been constructed within the last few years at Carnlough, and the town has an abundant supply of a prime necessary of life. 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. Seven commodious market places have been laid out, and enclosed in a most substantial manner by the Town Commissioners. 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 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. The Dundalk and Newry Steamship Company has done much to develop the trade of the town. A screw steamer sails weekly from the Albert Basin for Ardrossan, and three splendid steamers ply thrice a week between Newry, Warrenpoint and Liverpool. The Barrow Steam Navigation Company have lately started several of their fine steamers to run between Newry and Barrow, and Newry and Glasgow. Newry is favoured by having railway communication with all parts of the country, and a line has lately been constructed connecting the town with the harbour of Greenore. Steam colliers trade between here, and the coal ports in England and Scotland. The principal exports are linen cloth, grain, provisions, cattle, eggs, and butter. The paving, lighting and cleansing of the streets are vested in eighteen Town Commissioners, who have also the appointment of sanitary officers. In the neighbourhood of the town there are valuable quarries, and beautiful specimens of the highly polished marble and granite taken from the beds were greatly admired at the Philadelphia Exhibition. At Goraghwood there are granite quarries extensively drawn upon by Messrs. John Robinson & Son, of Belfast, who were the first to establish the polishing of granite in this country. The granite of these quarries is much admired, and has been pronounced by eminent authorities to be of the very finest description. In colour it is of a dark bluish shade, largely intermixed with pure crystal quartz. When finished it is exceedingly rich, and it is exceptionally well adapted for every description of architectural purposes. The excellent granite taken from the Moor Quarries, the property of Messrs. H. Campbell & Son, is highly appreciated. It presents a uniformity of texture and colouring, and it has this peculiarity - its colour, a rich grey, remains unchanged. Even the largest stones show few flaws. The blocks of granite taken from these quarries are of immense size, and of the best description. Specimens of this granite were granted a very high award of merit at the Philadelphia Exhibition, 1876.

The ancient name of which was Ballylisnevan, is a widely spread and geometrically laid out town of considerable importance, which occupies a position about eight Irish miles from Belfast, at the extreme northern end of Strangford Lough, or, as it was called in olden times, Lough Cuan, or Cowan. Although situated so close to the sea, no advantage has yet been taken of its almost maritime locale. In Conway Square, the largest in the North of Ireland, stands the Assembly Rooms, a most convenient and commodious structure, erected one hundred and six years ago, by the first Marquis of Londonderry. A romantic looking pedestal of an ancient cross stands at the foot of High Street.   About three miles,   in the direction of Crawfordsburn, is Ballyleidy House, the Irish residence of the Earl of Dufferin, K.P., the Governor General of Canada. The building, which is of very plain exterior, contains a vast library and splendid collection of art treasures. The annual All-Comers' meeting of the Ulster Rifle Association is held in the demesne, which is well wooded, and contains a beautiful sheet of ornamental water.  The old church, in Court Square, in which are tombs of the Colville and Stewart families, is one of the finest post-Reformation churches in this county before the present century. The Irish residence of the present Marquis is at Mount Stewart, about three miles along the shores of the lough, towards Greyabbey. About a mile from the town, in an easterly direction, stands the ruins of the famous old abbey of Magh Bile, or Movilla, which was founded by St. Finian about the year 550. The lead mines at Conlig have been long since closed up, and the adoption of that course has proved inimical to the interests of Newtownards, Conlig, and Bangor. The Scrabo quarries, on Scrabo Hill, about a mile and a half to the south west of the town, are being worked by Messrs. Ritchie, & Jackson, of Belfast, and yield capital building stones, which are much used in the town and neighbourhood.  On the summit of this hill is a stately monument, erected in honour of the third Marquis of Londonderry. Mr. George Walker's flax and tow spinning mill at the Castle Gardens employ a great number of hands, both male and female, and numerous young girls are engaged in a paper bag factory established in Court Street by a Belfast firm.  The starch works of Messrs. John Taylor & Son in South Street, affords employment to a number of men, as also does the Manor Mill in Mill Street, the property of the same firm. Mr. Thomas Beattie's tannery in Mill Street must not be overlooked.  Mr. William Dobbin, in South Street, and Mr. James Apperson, Thomas Street, manufacture shawls, quilts, druggets and shirtings. In Mr. Jas. Finlay's shirt factory a number of girls are employed by hand and with sewing machines. At the extreme west end of the town, and close to the entrance of the Belfast Road, is Messrs. Alexander Dickson & Son's Nursery, the products of which have gained more than British fame. A weekly newspaper - the Newtownards Chronicle and County Down Observer - is published every Saturday by Mr. William Henry. The Quarter Sessions of the Peace were removed from this town to Downpatrick in October 1874 ; but Civil Bill Courts are held in the Court House Regent Street, once a quarter ; Land Sessions twice a year - at Easter and Michaelmas terms ; Petty Sessions are held on the second and fourth Thursdays in each month ; and Presentment Sessions twice a year. The butter, egg and fowl market is in Regent Street, and that for the sale of pork, live pigs, flax, bogwood, etc., in West Street; the horse and cow fair is on the Shore Road;  the monthly fair is held on the second Saturday in each month ; and patent fairs on the following dates:- Winter fair, 23rd January ; May fair, 14th May ; and Harvest fair on 23rd September. The Belfast and County Down Railway Company run eight trains to and from Belfast on week days, and three on Sundays. In 1871 the population of the parish of Newtownards was 13,823.
