videcl, through the liberality of the council and inhabitants. The
style is French Gothic of the thirteenth century, the building pre-
senting a frontage of 132 feet, adorned by a beautifully ornamented
central tower 140 feet high. Above the Academy are the rooms per-
taining to the Dumbarton School of Art, inaugurated November
25th, 1884, and in the rear of it is a large public hall, embracing
every convenience, and capable of accommodating an audience of
about 750. The interior of the building was entirely destroyed by
fire in 1882, and has since been handsomely refitted and furnished
with all the newest scholastic appliances. The expense of erection
of both buildings was about £6,000. There are also three Board
schools erected at considerable expense, and an Episcopalian school,
a handsome stone building, constructed upon the newest and most
improved system, situate in Risk street; the cost, including the
grounds, was £5,000, which was defrayed by Richard D. Buchanan,
Esq. Dunglass CaBlle, Bowling. There are three weekly news-
papers established here, the Dumbarton Herald, the Lennox Herald,
and the Dumbarton Observer. 'J here is a free circulating library and
reading-room in High street. A new public park, to be called Leven-
grove Park, and covering about 35 acres, has recently been presented
to the town by Peter Denny, Esq. of Helenslee, and John Mac-
millan, Esq., of College Park. It is pleasantly situated, and bounded
by the Clvde and Leven, the grounds being tastefully laid out. The
cost was about .£20,000, and it was opened May 30th, 1885. The

Cardross is a small but respectable village in the parish of its
name, situate four miles from Dumbarton, on the road to Helens-
burgh, and near the shore of the Clyde. Prior to the Reformation
the church of Cardross was a rectory, belonging to the Cathedral of
Glasgow, and was seated on a peninsula promontory formed by the
Leven and the Clyde; the present church, which stands in the
village, is a neat edifice with a square tower. This district is very
pleasant and salubrious, and the situation of the parish eligible for
business. The vicinage of the village is the residence of many
respectable families, whose tasteful mansions embellish the sur-
rounding scenery. The parochial school here, likewise a Free
church are handsome stone buildings. The North British railway
have a station here. On Castle hill are the remains of the residence
of Robert Bruce, from whence ho could behold his army encamped
below. Population of the parish in 1871, 7,080, and in 1881, 9,365.
