Galled Castle Street, — down to the Shore. This
makes the communication in that quarter complete.
In the middle of the great square, fronting the
Town House, stands an excellent Inn and Hotel,
kept by Mr Morren ; and at the top of Castle Street
stands another extensive Inn and Hotel, kept by Mr
Merchant. Between these and the Crown and An-

by Mr Campbell, the accommodation to the people
of the town, and to travellers or lodgers, is very

Episcopal Chapel, with door and windows of the
Gothic order. Under it are apartments for the Old
