" iigain — <he band of commeroe was design'd
T' associate all the branches of mankind;
And if a boundless plenty be the robe,
Trade is the golden girdle of the globe.
Wise to promote whatever end He means, ..

God opens fruitful nature's -various scenes.
Each climate needs what other climes produce.
And offers something to the gen'ral use;
No land but listens to the common call,
And in return receives supply from all.
This genial intercourse, and mutual aid,
Cheers what were else a nniversal shade.
Calls nature from her ivy-mantrccl den.
And softens human rock-work into men.
Ingenious Art, with her expressive face.
Steps forth to fashion and refine the race ;
Not only fills necessity's demand,
But overcharges her capacious hand ;
Capricious taste itself can crave no more.
Than she supplies from her abounding store :
She strikes out all that luxury can ask,
And gains new vigour at her endless task.
Hers is the spacious arch, the shapely spire.
The painter's pencil, and the poet's lyre;
From her the canvass borrows light and shade.
And verse, more lasting, hues that never fade.
She guides the finger o'er the dancing keys,
Gives difficulty all the grace of ease.
And pours a torrent of sweet notes around.
Fast as the thirsting ear can drink the sound.

" These are the gifts of Art, and Art thrives most
Where Commerce has enrich'd the busy coast;
He catches all improvements in his flight,
Spreads foreign wonders in his country's sight,
Imports what others have invented well,
And siirs his own to match them or^xeel.
'Tis thus reciprocating, each with each.
Alternately the nations learn and teach ;
While Providence enjoins to ev'ry soul
A union with the vast terraqueous whole."

PREFACE,



The history of the present Exhibition will be probably best detailed by the subjoined correspondence between
W. Dargan, Esq. and the Royal Dublin Society, merely premising that, for the last 25 years, the Eoyal Dublin
Society has held Triennial Exhibitions of Manufactures, and that the last Exhibition was held in 1850.

At a meeting of the Royal Dublin Society held on Thursday, June 24, 1852, the following letter from
W. Dargan, Esq. was read : —

" Dublin, 24:th June, 1852,

"Mr. Dargan understanding that the year 1853 will be the year for holding the Triennial Exhibition of
Manufactures of the Royal Dublin Society, and being desirous of giving such Exhibition a character of more
than usual prominence, and to render it available for the Manufactures of the three Kingdoms, proposes to
place the sum of twenty thousand pounds in the hands of a Special Executive Committee, on the following
conditions : —

" 1st. That a suitable bmlding shall be erected on the lawn of the Royal Dublin Society.
" 2nd. That the opening of the Exhibition shall not be later than June, 1853.

" 3rd. That a Special Executive Committee shall be nominated by three gentlemen on the part of
Mr. Dargan, to be named by him, and by three gentlemen to be selected by the Council of the
Royal Dublin Society from that body.
"4th. That Mr. Dargan shall have the nomination of the Chairman, Deputy Chairman, and of the

Secretary of the Special Executive Committee.
"5th. That at the termination of the Exhibition, the building shall be taken by Mr. Dargan, and shall

become his property at a valuation by competent persons.
" 6th. That if, after payment of all expenses, the proceeds of the Exhibition do not amount to £20,000,
with interest thereon at 5 per cent., Mr. Dargan shall receive the proceeds, less all expenses
incurred.
"If the proceeds, after payment of all expenses, amoimt to £20,000, with interest thereon at 5 per cent.,
Mr. Dargan is to receive £20,000, and interest at 5 per cent. If the proceeds, after payment of all expenses,
exceed the sum of £20,000, with interest thereon at 5 per cent., the Executive Committee is to have the
disposal of the surplus.

" The amount of the valuation of the building is to be considered as cash paid to Mr. Dirgan.

(Approved.) "Wm. DARGAN."



8 PREFACE.

The Executive Committee, immediately on its appointment, advertised for plans for a suitable building to
be erected on the lawn of the Royal Dublin Society, and having requested the assistance of Messrs. Gr. Miller,
G. W. Hemans, and Lanyon, in selecting that most suitable for the purpose, resolved to adopt that submitted by
J, Benson, Esq. architect, who also superintended the woi'ks. The plan as originally adopted was subsequently
modified by the addition of the northern and southern halls. In September, Mr. Dargan finding that the accom-
modation provided by the original plans would not be sufficient for the anticipated wants of the Exhibition,
proposed to the Royal Dublin Society to advance a still fm-ther sum of £6,000, to be applied on the same
conditions as the first £20,000, and in February of this year he proposed to enlarge the Exhibition Building by
the addition of buildings around the front court and the agricultm-al exhibition yard, for which purpose he
agreed with the Royal Dublin Society to place in the hands of the Executive Committee a still further sum of
£14,000, making the whole sum advanced by him £40,000. It is needless to say that the total expenditure has
far exceeded this smn.
