Rev. William E. Scudamore, iMdonAfHhip. The
sliire-tiall is a modern eiecioii, comfirisini; two con-
venieni courts for the trial ofciiil and criminal causes.
The guild-hall is for the town court of sessions, and
the transaction of the teneial business of the bnroutli.
The concert-room is an elegant hnildinu; and there is
a handsome corn-exchange. The finuity Kaol, elected
in 180.3, at an expense of £.50, 000, is calculated to
contain one hundred and forty prisoners, vvitli a sepa-
rate bed for each : it stands on the London road, nearly
a mile from the ci ntre of the town, and (nesents a
haiidsnrne stnne front. The borough bridewell is si-
tuated ill the Market-place— the ate of its erection is
obvious from its cin ular windows. The tbeatie, a
neat sirnciure, in the southern part of the town, was
op'-iifd for dramatic performances in October, 1819,
The St" "


subicriptioii rooms were comiilttcd in 1804, in a

superior style of eletancc, at an ex|)eiise of nearly
£5,000: they occupy the south side of .Anuel-hill, and
comprise hall, b;lliard, card, coffee, supper and reading
rooms. TheSutfidk public library, kept in the Guild-
tiall, bus about one hunilied subscribers, and contains
many valuable books. The botanic garden, the en-
tiaiice to which is under that maanificeni luin, Ihe
Abbeygate, is an impoitant acqni.sitioii to this biancli
of scientific study, as well as a most agrt cable and
favoiiiite promenade. 'I"he general Suffolk hospital is
a handsome structure, in an open and healthful situa-
tion. Two Weekly newspapiTs are published in Bury
— the • Bury and Norwich Post,' and the ' Bury and
Suti'olk Herald.' The spinning ot yarn was formerly
the principal means of employment for the indusiritjus
class, and the balls in which the wool was deposited,
are yet standing: no particular branch of manufacture
is now cariied on. Tin- local and retail business of the
place is in general flout ishiiiu ; being well sustained by
a large and respectable population, and the uumerous
wealthy tamilies in the immediate neighbourhood. The
town is also on" ot considerable thoionghfare, and
supports no fewer than seven principal inns.

James I granted to the inhabitants a cliarterof in-
corporation, which was extendeil by several succeeding
tnonarchs. The coipoiate body under the Alunicipal
Reform Act, consists of a mayor, six aldermen, and
eighteen councillors, with the usual assistant officers —
styled 'the Mayor, Aldermen and Burgesses of Bury
Saint Edmunds, in the County of .Suffolk :' the same
act divided the borough into three wards, and provided
for it a commission of the peace. Sessions for the
boiougb, and also for the county, are held quarterly;
assizes for the liberty and county twice a year, and a
court leef annually under the lord of the manor. Bury
is included in the thii ty-fcmrth circuit of County Court
towns, under the acts passed in 1846, for the recovery
of debts and damages to any amount not exceeding
£20— this court is held monthly, in the shire hall.
The borough lias uninieri iiptedly returned members
to F.irliament from the 4th of James I; the pieseiit
representatives are the Eat 1 Jermyn ami Sii Edward
Herbert Bniibni y. The return of members to sit for
West Suffolk is madefiom Bury.

The places of worship aie the three churches, and
chapels for Baptists, Independents, Unitarians, Wes-
leyaii and Pi imitive Methodists, the Society of Friends
and Koman Catholics — the chapel of the latter a
nindern election. Saint Mary's chutcli is an elegant
structure, divided into tliiee aisles by two rows of
beautiful slender columns ; the roof particularly excites
adniiraiion by its t isteful liiilitness. Saint James's is a
fine specimen of the Gothic style — the west end is
particularly handsome : the inteiior consists of side-
aisles, a nave and a chancel, and a galleiy over the
west entrance ; the window of ihe cliancel, formerly
beloiigiin; Xo the abbey church, is of beautiful stained
glass; and the organ is a sweet-toned and [lowerful
instrument. Saint John's is a handsome modern brick
edifice, with a fine pioportioned spire : the livinn of
each palish is a donative, in the gilt of tliectuf December; the ()ctober tairis ihe primipal
with every necessary. The advaniaijes aiisini; fioni a ; one, ami continues about three weeks. By the re-
cattle market, purchased by the old corpoiation, and turns made to government in 1831, tiie population
renewed by the new, have ntidrred tlii", as a market of the dorou^h and parishes was ll,4!i6, and by those
