e. from Edinburgh, 20 s. vv. from Kelso, II s. from
kirk, and 45 N.fiom Carlisle; situated on the high
d between the last-named city and Edinburgh, on
Hawick branch of the North British railway, for
ich line there is a station not, far from the centre of
own. It is seated at the confluence of the Slitrig

consists chiefly of one long sp.cious street on the right
bank of the Teviot, with some other thoroughfares of
inferior grade. The entire is well paved, lighted with
