I&BLANDy which is an island separated from Great Britain by St. George's Channel, forms the most westerly
part of Europe. The surface of the country displays great diversity of appearance^ some parts being completely
wild and desolate, and others presenting abundant traces of culture and ci?ilization. The northern counties are
mountainous, but m that part of the island are also extensive tracts of fertile level land. In the west the moun«
tain heights are of more frequent occurrence ; in the south, though the district is hilly, there are some of the
richest pastures in Europe ; and in the central and eastern portions of the country the surfkce is in general more
even, and the soil more productive than elsewhere. The coast is high and rocky towards the north, west, and
south, while on the eastern side it is lower and more sheltered ; and the surface of the land declines towards the
interior. No country can boast of a greater number of excellent harbours than Ireland. Plantation is but little
encouraged, although no country is better adapted for the purpose. The forest trees are analogous to those of
England ; the oak, however, is a peculiar variety ; the arbutus is indigenous in the south, and grows to a large
size in the county of Wicklow. The climate resembles that of England, but the weather is more variable and
probably milder ; the summers being less hot and sultry, and winters not so cold. The air is certainly damper
owing to the proximity of the western ocean. The summer heat is not sufficient to bring grapes and other tender
fruits to maturity in the open air, without especial care ; but the broad-leafed myrde, as well as the arbutus, grow
luxuriantly in the southern counties. The soil exhibits great diversities of composition ; as stiff clay, fertile loam,
light and strong ground, thin pastures, and sometimes, but unfrequently, light sand. Cattle for exportation are
fed on the high lands, which are also used for raising oats and barley. Butter made in the county of Carlow bears
the h^est price in the markets of England. Wheat is the produce of every county for home consumption. The
manufacture of linen has caused the growth of (lax to be encouraged in the northern counties. Beans and tur-
nips are not extensively cultivated, as the former are not so largely required as in England, for horses, nor the
latter for feeding black-cattle. The quadrupeds chiefly found here are the fox, hare, rabbit, weasel, ferret, otter,
hedgehog, and varieties of rats and mice, but the mole does not belong to this country. Herds of small and hardy
horses are bred in the mountains, where they are permitted to range for two or three years, and then sent in
droves to the markets like flocks^ of sheep. The breed of sheep called the South Down, is held in much esteem
in Ireland. The breeds of swine and sheep in the county of Fermanagh are both excellent. The feathered tribes
are not very numerous. The eagle and hawk may be specified amongst the birds of prey, and falcons also were
common here centuries ago ; owls are not often found here ; and there are no nightingales. The pheasant,
woodcock, partridge, grouse, barnacle-goose, widgeon, snipe, &c., are among the game and waterfowl ; ring-
doves, stockdoves, coots, quaib, and waterhens, are common ; and the passerine family, as usual, is remarkably
numerous. The winged inhabitants of the sea-coast are also of various kinds, as puffins, eider-ducks, curlews,
&c. The coast fisheries are amongst the principal resources of the population. Among the most common sea-
fish are the turbot, cod, ling, sun-fish, haddock, mackerel, hake, ray, herrings, pilchards, gurnet, and
mullet ; and the river-fish include pike, trout, char, perch, tench, carp, eels, a species of fish caught in the great

lake of Eme, called " freshwater herrings," and various others, to which may be added salmon, of which there
are valuable fisheries ; and besides these there are lobsters, crabs, oysters, muscles, and crayfish.

Though Ireland can scarcely be called a manufacturing country, yet she has some claims to the character of a
commercial one. linen has long been the staple manufacture of this country ; and since that trade has suffered
from the rivalry of Yorkshire, the loss has been supplied by the introduction of the cotton manufacture. Woollen
goods are not extensively made here, except coarse cloths which are produced in many places. The other manu-
factures are those of muslin, leather, glass, salt, vitriol, &c. Spirits are distilled in great quantities, and porter is
made at Dublin and Ck)rk for exportation to England. The principal exports are com, cattle, hides,
butter, and all sorts of agricultural produce, besides linen, lead and copper ore, whiskey, tallow, and various
other commodities. Agriculture constitutes the principal employment of the population ; but additional occu-
pation will probably hereafter be derived from mining speculations. Among the mineral products of Ireland may
be noticed lead, copper, iron, silver, antimony, and manganese, besides gold, formerly found in the coui^ty of
Wicklow ; and marble, granite, and potter's clay ; to which must be added, coal, the principal mines of which
are in the counties of Tyrone and Antrim, in the province of Ulster ; Leitrim, in Connaught ; and Kilkenny, in
Leinster. The geological structure of this country differs greatly from that of England. Limestone here foxns
the most common substratum of the soil ; but there are three extensive tracts of granite, one in Leinster, reaching
from Dublin to Kilkenny ; a second in Donegal ; and a third stretching over a large portion of the west of Ire-
land. In Antrim almost exclusively red sandstone is found ; and in that county are the remarkable basaltic
columns, called the Giants' Causeway, extending into the sea, from the shore about eight miles north of Coleraine.
The following are the heights of some of the principal mountains in this island : Carran-Tual, the loftiest point
of Magillicuddy reeks is 3412 feet above the level of the sea; Mangerton is 2552 feet; Tomies, 2150 feet;
Glena, 2090 feet ; Crohaune Mountains are 2175 feet; and Paps, at the highest point, 2280 feet; these are all
in the county of Kerry : Commerach ridge is 2162 feet ; and Knockmeledown 2697 feet, both in the county of
Waterford : Lugnaquille, county of Wicklow, is 2402 feet : Moume Hills are 2493 feet ; and Sleibh Donnard is
2802 feet; both in the county of Down : Sneibh Dovin, county of Londonderry, is 3146 feet: Croagh Patrick
is 2654 feet ; and Nephin 2644 feet ; both in the county of Mayo.

The bogs of Ireland constitute a peculiar feature of the country. According to the estimate of Mr. Bald, a
surveyor, the extent of flat mountain-bog in the whole kingdom amounts to three millions of acres, supposed to
contain a stratum of peat eaith for fuel, nine feet in thickness, at a medium depth. The largest of the hw coun-
try bogs is the Bog of Allen, extending over parte of the counties of Kildare, Roscommon, Meath, Westmeath,
King's County, and Queen's County. Surveys have been made of some of the bogs, and measures have been
brought before parliament for effecting their reclamation.

This country is well watered both by lakes, or loughs^ and by rivers. Lough £me» in the county of Ferma-
nagh, is the largest of the former, being forty miles in length ; Lough Neagh, is thirty-two piles long ; and
Lough Dearg,. in Donegal, is noted on account of St. Patrick's purgatory on one of ite islands. There are four
expansions of the Shannon, lakes Allen, Bofin, Ree, and Derg ; and Kerry is celebrated for ite beautiful lakes at
Killamey. In the county of Wicklow are the celebrated lakes of Glendalough and the beautiful lough of Lug-
gelau. The Shannon is the noblest river in the island, it rises at the foot of Culka mountain, in Cavan, and ftdlt
into the sea between the counties of Clare and Kerry. Besides an infinite number of minor streams, the Shan-
non receives the Fe^us, the Suck, and the Brosna. The Inny joins it in Lough Ree, and the Camlin near
Tarmonbury. The Suir is the second river in magnitude ; it rises in the mountains of Kilnemana» and falls into
the Atlantic below East DumOre, after receiving the waters of the Nore and the Barrow. The Lee rises in the
romantic lake of Gougane Barra, in the county of Cork, and falls into the harbour of Cove, below Cork city.
There are three Blackwater rivers in Ireland. The southern is the finest river, rising on the borders of Kerry and
Cork. The Slaney rises in the county of Wicklow, and falls into Wexford Haven. The Lifiey flows out of a
little pool in the county of WicUow, and falb into the sea at Dublin. Among the other rivers of any conse-
quence are the Boyne, the Newry Water, the Lagan, the Bann, the Foyle, the Mome, the Finn, the Guibarra,
and the Moy ; apd ]/>ugh Grqe, the estuary of which is called ,&ne Riveir, on the Donegal coast, is famous for
ite salmon- fisheries.

The Irisk chroniders assert that Partholanos, widi a train of Grecians, first colonized the island about 323 years
after the Deluge. After a period of 330 years, a colony of Scythians appeared. Grecians, Danes, and £gyp*
tians, then successirely possessed and were expelled the country, until the establishment of the. Milesian kings,
whose descendants it is supposed continued to govern till the arrival of the English . All, however, that can be stated
with oertainty concerning the ancient population of Ireland, is, that the people manifestly derived their origin from the
great Celtic, or Keltic, nation, the common stock of the Erse, or Irish, and the Gael, or Scottish Highlanders.
About 1156, from which period the history of Ireland is connected with that of England, Dermot M'Murrough,
King of Leinster, having carried off Dervolga, the wife of O'Rorke, Prince of Breffny, or Leitrim, gave occasion
for domestic quarrels, which terminated in the conquest of the island. Dermot finding himself unable to with-
stand the power of those whom he had offended by his unprincipled conduct, fled to Normandy, to seek the assist-
ance of King Henry II., who, after having granted him letters of aidance to authorize his subjects to assist him,
visited the kingdom of Ireland in person, in the month of October, 1172. The Princes of Desmond, Thomond,
and others, submitted, and did homage for their dominions ; and the kingdom, though agitated by frequent in-
surrection and warfare, has continued ever since that period, subject to the kings of England. Disorders arose in the
reign of Henry VIII., which were suppressed with a severity characteristic of that monarch ; and the instigation and
assistance of the Spaniards, seconded by the daring spirit of the Earl of Tyrone, occasioned fresh troubles under
the government of Queen Elizabeth. In 1641 the Roman Catholics, availing themselves of the distracted con-
dition of the English nation, broke out mto rebellion, and many Protestants were massacred in cold blood ; but,
after the termination of the civil war between Charles I. and the Parliament, Ireland was reduced to subjection
by Oliver CipmweU, who treated the insurgents with great cruelty. The conflict between James II. and WiU
liam III., although decided by the battle of Boyne in this country, rather belongs to English history than to that
of Ireland. Religious animosities and the invasion of the French, laid the foundation of those unhappy rebellions,
which took place in 1798 and 1803. The suppression of the first and most formidable of these, was speedily fol-
lowed by the legislative union of the two British isles, in 1800 ; from which period the history of Ireland can no
longer be*considered as distinct from the more general history of the British dominions. The legislative branch
of government is now common to the two countries, and the executive is conducted subordinately by a viceroy, or
lord lieutenant, and other officers. There are twenty-one Irish temporal peers, and three representative bishops,
and one archbishop, entitled to seats in the House of Lords. The courts of justice are numerous, but analogous
to those of England.
