Ireland. The places of worship are as follows, viz : — two churches
of the EstabUsljiuent, one for United Fresbyteriana, a Free church,
and one each for Episcopalians, Roman Catholics, and Wealeyan
Methodists. The Episcopa iau church is a neat structure of Gothic
architectui'C ; the interior is beautifully decorated; it has also a
very commanding pulpit, and was erected at a cost of eleven
hundred pounds. To the parochial school, which is now under a
Parish School Board, a valuable donation was made by the late
Mrs. Crawford, of Ardmillan, ^vho left the interest of ^1,000 for ever
to the teachers, for the education of forty childi-en, subject only to
the deduction of two guineas, to be distributed in small prizes
