DOUGLAS, the most considerable town and seaport in the island, is 10 miles N.E. of Castletown, 11 nearly E. of Peel. 16 s. of Ramsey, 72 N.W. of Liverpool, 40 SW of Whitehaven, 75 N.E. by E. of Dublin, and 144 S. of Greenock. This town is delightfully situate on a river and at the south-eastern angle of a bay of the same name, fronting to the eastward ; and is connected in civil matters with the parish of Onchan, and ecclesiastical with that of Braddan. The old streets are for the most part singularly irregular, crooked and though they contain many excellent houses, shops and inns; all the modern streets, terraces, &c.are however, pleasant and tasteful. The general shape of the town is triangular, and, in this respect, it has been compared to the Manx Arms, which are three legs, with the appropriate motto of 'Stabit quocunque jeceris' referring to its insular situation regarding the three kingdoms. Douglas is well supplied with water, from a reservoir constructed a little above the Crescent; and efficienttly lighted with gas, by a company whose works are situate on the south quay. The harbour is esteemed the best dry one in the Irish sea, and admits vessels of considerable burthen-the depth of spring tides, being from twelve to twenty feet. Several surveys have been made, of late years, with the design of making Douglas bay a harbour of refuge for vessels navigating the Irish sea:. Sir William Hillary, Bart,  has written several pamphlets upon this important subject. In 1842 proposals from Captain Tayler were submitted to a public meeting for the construction of a floating breakwater ; the expence of which was estimated at £20,000 ; the government was memorialized on the subject ; and there are well-founded anticipations taht so desireable an improvement will at no distant date be carried out. It has been proved that a very large amount of property, sometimes exceeding £50,000 annually has been lost between the coasts of Britain and Ireland, from the destitution of an asylum to protect mechandize and life A new jetty, from the opposite shore to the harbour, was erected a few years since ; it projects about two hundred feet, now extends a sheltering arm to the present Pier In 1833 a Tower of Refuge was erected on St Marys rock, as a beacon and also a retreat for mariners shipwrecked in the bay of this coast. One of the most attractive features in the contour of Douglas is the beautiful stone pier, erected by government, about fifty years since, at an expense of £22,000 ; it is five hundred and twenty feet in length and forty in breath well flagged, and its eastern extremity ornamented by a beautiful and serviceable lighthouse ; it is the favourite promenade. At low water the walk along the north shore is extremely pleasant; and at flood tide the goodness of the sands, and the uncorrupted purity of the ocean wave, render at one of the most agreeable bathing-places in this part of Europe. The climate is, in general, much milder than in the surrounding countries of Great Britain and Ireland. Bathing machines are provided by different parties, and there are hot cold shower and vapour baths. Castle Mona Hotel once the princely castle of the Duke of Athol, is now fitted up in a style not excelled, probably, in the empire ; it has accommodation for one hundred and fifty visiters at the same moment-and the woods, lawns and gardens are proportionally extensive : the castle is nearly a mile north of Douglas, bordering on the beach. The town contains many other convenient and respectable inns and hotels ; and, for those who prefer a private domicile, lodgings of the most genteel and comfortable character may be readily obtained. Douglas supports public libraries, news-rooms and billiard-rooms ; and dancing and card assemblies are frequent ; and a close approximation to English sociality was formed hereto 1829, by the establishment of a United Service club. The neighbourhood of Douglas is well wooded, and embellished with many elegant mansions-affording pleasing and varied landscapes, although limited in extent. Boating parties are numerous and frequent, and a regatta occasionally takes place in the spacious bay.

The manufactures of Douglas are not of much importance, except the long-established one for linen and sail-cloth of Messrs Moore ; another, for coarse and fine woollen cloths and blankets, at Union Mills, about three miles on the road to Peel, now worked by Messrs Dalrymple & Co. ; and a third, for paper, about four miles north . Among the leading branches of trade are an iron foundry, two extensive ship-building yards, several tanneries, breweries, and a soap rnanufactory. From the Douglas press issue four newspapers weekly, and one monthly ; they are generally well conducted, and deservedly well supported. As this is the only port into which wines, spirits, colonial produce, &c. are allowed to be imported under the present fiscal laws, the town, and especially the pier and quay, generally present a scene of considerable bustle and activity. The vessels belonging to the port at the present time, are numerous and of considerable tonnage, trading with France, Holland, Spain, Portugal, Prussia, the Hanseatic towns, &c. The custom-house was formerly the insular residence of his Grace the Duke of Athol, Prior to the erection of Mona castle. The court-house, which is situate on the pier, is a plain substantial edifice : in it the southern deemster holds a court once a fortnight, and the vicar-general once within the same period ; the high bailiff holds his court every Saturday, and courts baron are held in the spring and autumn.

The places of worship are numerous and respectable. St. Matthew's church was built in 1711, and contains nearly three hundred sittings; St. George's, situate on an eminence behind Athol-street, will accommodate a congregation of upwards of eight hundred ; St. Barnabas', erected in 1833, and ornamented with a handsome spire, one hundred and forty feet highh, possesses twelve hundred sittings, seven hundred free ; and an old man-of-war, fitted up as a Mariner's chapel, affords convenient room for upwards of two hundred hearers: the livings are all curacies, in the gift of the bishop. The dissenting chapels are for independents, Primitive and Wesleyan Methodists, Presbyterians, Mormonites, Plymouth Brethren, &c. ; the Roman Catholics occupy spacious chapel in Athol-street, formerly used for the purpose of theatrical representations. The educational institutions of Douglas are most efficient, particularly the boarding, classical and commercial seminary of Ealter Forester, A.M. in Athol-street. There are several other boarding schools. The national school, built in 1810, can accomodate one thousand pupils; a school of industry, for boarding and educating eight girls was established in 1836 and an excellent one for infants in 1837. There are amny charitable Institutions in the town — the Douglas Medical Dispensary and Casualty Hospital , supported by voluntary contributions, contains three wards fitted up for accidents only. The dispensary is open daily from nine to eleven o'clock . The average number of patients attended annually is from seven hundred to nine hundred ; the average expenditure from one hundred to one hundred and fifty pounds per annum. The inmates of the House of Industry , averaging from seventy five to eighty, are attended from this institution ; J. H. F. Spencer ,M.D. is the surgeon who was appointed when the dispensary was first established in1840. This is the only dispensary or hospital in the island. The institution for the preservation of life from shipwreck, founded by Sir William Hillary, bart been the means of rescuing great numbers of persons from an ocean grave. The House of Industry, or workhouse, is a handsome and extensive structure, with a square tower in the centre ; it was completed in 1837, partly by means of a grant from government, and partly by subscriptions. The market-place, erected by a company in the same year, is very spacious, with an extensive range of stalls on each side of a spacious area. The Odd Fellows’ Hall, situate in Athol-street, is a large and handsome building, with two fine Doric columns, and handsome portico in front ; it contains an elegant hail for the meetings of the order, capable of seating five hundred persons ; it is also occasionally hired for public concerts, &c. The building was erected in 1841, at an expense of upwards of £2,000. by shares. The market, which is held on Saturday, is well supplied with provisions of all kinds ; and fish may be had any day of the week at very reasonable prices. An annual fair is held on the 12th November.


The parish of ONCHAN lies in the same Sheading division as that of Braddan ; it is of more regular form however—extending, from north to south, about four miles, and five from east to west. The parish church, rebuilt in 1833, is dedicated to St. Peter, and situate in the village, about two miles north-east of Douglas; the living is a vicarage, in the patronage of the crown. The Wesleyan Methodists have a small chapel in the village and one about a mile to the north of it. KIRK ONCHAN village stands pleasantly on the east road from Douglas to Ramsey, and contains a considerable number of handsome and comfortable houses. There is an extensive and beautifully-situated nursery (planted within the last four years), the property of Alexander Spithall Esq. and under the able management of Mr. Lyle.
