PREFACE. 



That the want' of an " AYRSHmE Directory " lias 
long been felt in Law-Courts, Banks, Public Oinces — 
among Factors, Professional Gentlemen, xlgents, Inn- 
keepers, Mercbants, and Dealers througbout the 
County — as well as by Strangers, and Professional and 
Mercantile Houses in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Liverpool, 
London, and other Cities having intercourse with Ayr- 
shire, has been already fully proved by the numerous 
Subscribers to this Publication. 

Its compilation has been attended with much more 
labour and expense than those unacquainted with its 
details might suppose — the Lists for the Forty- six 
Parishes having been prepared, and at a later date 
revised, in each Parish. 

The Parishes are arranged alphabetically. 



PREFACE. 

The diiSculties attending a first attempt at present- 
ing so very full a List of the Inhabitants of a whole 
County, are pleaded in excuse of any inaccuracies 
that may be discovered. 

The indication of the Voters, though attempted care- 
fully, had better, perhaps, in the present edition have 
been omitted, as the Official Registers from which they 
are taken have never since the passing of the Reform 
Bill been purged of " dead," and "absent"; while at 
the date when consulted, this year's Electors had not 
been added. 

Prefixed to the Directory are Fifty-eight pages of 
County Statistics, Interest Tables, and other informa- 
tion valuable for reference; and Seventy pages of 
Advertisements are annexed.

and so on, increasing 2d. per oz. 

There is no limit to the weight of paid letters, but unpaid, 
letters must not exceed 4 oz., unless for the public departments, 
and no inland letter must exceed 24 inches in length. 

Stamps may be used to pay the postage on foreign, colonial, 
and ship-letters, as well as on inland letters, but, in using stamps 
care must be taken that a sufficient number are put on the letter 
to cover the postage, as inland letters insufficiently stamped 
are charged double the deficiency ; and those for abroad are 
liable to be detained, where the prepayment is compulsory, or 
sent forward charged with the deficiency. Letters must either 
be paid wholly in stamps or in money. 

Stamps should be placed on the right hand corner of the 
letter, and care must be taken to see that they adhere. 

Redirected Lettkrs are liable to new rates of postage, 
but though the new postage should not be paid on the reposting 
of the letter, it will be charged only the prepaid rate on de- 
livery. 

Late Letters, posted at the provincial offices, must be paid 
by attaching the requisite number of postage stamps tor the 
postage as well as for the late letter fee, and are in time if put 
into the Late Letter Box 15 miuutes after the closing of the box, 
with an additional penny stamp affixed, and with three addi- 



XXV 

tional stamps they are in time till 10 minutes before the despatch 
of each mail. 

Letters, when once posted, cannot be given back upon any 
pretence whatever, but must be forwarded to the person to 
whom they are addressed. 

Letters containing articles of a perishable or dangerous 
nature will be detained as soon as discovered. 

Letters to warm climates should be wafered, not sealed, as the 
wax is liable to be melted, to the injury of the other letters. 

Money Orders. — An order from any one Post-office on any 
other, for any sum not exceeding £2, may be obtained for 3d., 
and for a sura between that and £5, for dd. A money order 
must be presented for payment before the end of the second 
calendar month after that in which it was issued, otherwise a 
new order will be necessary, for which a second commission 
must be paid ; and if not presented before the end of the 
twelfth month, the money will not be paid at all. 

Registration. — Any letter can be registered on payment 
of a registration fee of 6d. The postage must be prepaid in 
stamps, except the letter is going abroad, when it may be pre- 
paid in money or stamps, but the registration fee of 6d. is in 
all cases to be paid in money. Registered letters to France are 
charged double the French rate of postage, in addition to the 
6 d registration fee ; and to Prussia, an additional charge of 3d 
is made; letters to other foreign countries and the colonies 
cannot be registered farther than the port of despatch. Regis- 
tered letters must be posted half an hour before the time of the 
box closing for other letters. 



NEWSPAPERS. 

Stamped British newspapers, after being sanctioned by the 
Postmaster-General, pass free from one place to any other place 
in Great Britain. But when addressed to a person residing 
within the delivery of the post-town where it is posted. Id is 
charged on each paper. British and colonial newspapers pass 
free to and from the colonies by the mail packets — the privi- 
lege includes papers to and from the East Indies by the South- 
ampton packets ; and if sent by the Monthly Closed Mails, 
via Prance, they are charged 3d, and must be prepaid. When 
the conveyance is by private ship, the postage is Id. Foreign 
newspapers received in Britain, and British newspapers sent to 
foreign countries, are liable to a postage of 2d, unless there be a 
reciprocity treaty with the foreign Post-office, when they pass 
free. The exemption, however, is only total in the case of 
Post-office conveyances. The following are the countries to 
which newspapers are forwarded free ; Altona, Brazil, Bremen, 



XXVI 

Bolivia, Buenos Ayres, Columbia, Cuxhaven, Denmark, Equa* 
tor, Greece, Hamburg, Hayti, La Guayra, Lubeck, New Grana- 
da, Oldenburg, Peru, Spain, and Venezuela. Newspapers 
from and to France, Prussia, and countries through Prussia, 
are charged ^d. To Holland and Hanover the charge is Id.,

AYESHIRE 



Ayrshire is in extent 56 miles in length, by 26 in breadth, 
containing 1600 square miles, divided into 46 Parishes. The 
Population in 1831 was 145,055 ; in 1841, 164,356 ; and in 
1851, 189,210. The Parliamentary Constituency is about 4,300, 
being the largest in Scotland. It is divided into three dis- 
tricts — Bailiaries, vphose separate jurisdictions were annulled, 
by statute, in 1748 — Cuninghame, north ; Kyle, in the centre ; 
and Carrick, south. Renfrewshire bounds Ayrshire on the 
north, from Largs to Loudoun Parishes : the Counties of 
Lanark and Dumfries on the east, from Loudoun to the 
southernmost point of the Parish of New Cumnock : the 
Stewartry of Kirkcubright thence on the south to the S.E. point 
of Colmonell : and Wigtownshire on the south to the sea. The 
west side of Ayrshire, which forms a crescent, about 75 miles 
long, is bounded by the Firth of Clyde. Irvine Water separates 
Cuninghame from Kyle ; and the River Doon Kyle from Carrick. 
Ayrshire, which among the Counties of Scotland ranks next to 
Aberdeenshire in population, has acquired no small portion of its' 
widely-spread fame as the land of Bruce, Wallace, and Burns. 
Of late years, it has risen greatly in importance, from the rapid 
increase of its manufactures and shipping, its improvements in 
agriculture, and the valuable fields of iron and lead, with 
which in addition to coal and lime, it abounds. The num- 
ber of contested elections in Ayrshire, since 1832, has also 
been a mean of bringing it from time to time under the eye of the 
nation. It is made prominent every five years by the Caledonian 
Hunt at Ayr ; annually by the Western Meeting at Ayr, 
in September or October ; and by the Eglinton Park Meetings 
at Irvine. Perhaps in this enumeration we ought not to omit 
mention of the Eglinton Tournament in September, 1839, which 
we can well believe attracted thousands of strangers to Ayrshire 
who otherwise might never have made the pilgrimage. The 
formation of the Glasgow and Ayrshire Railway has also exercis- 
ed a powerful influence in giving prominence to Ayrshire ; and 
now that the Glasgow, Dumfries, & Carlisle Railway is opened, 
a communication from the South is established, the importance 
of which is daily becoming more appreciated, while the traffic 
at the Port of Ayr, and other harbours along the coast, will be 
vastly increased, as they afford ready outlets for the inexhaus- 
tible mineral resourses of the rich districts through which it i» 
proposed that the projected line shall pass.

AYR. 



Ayr, the County Town, and a Royal Burgh, obtained its Charter 
from William the Lion, about the year 1206. The River Ayr 
divides it from Newton and Wallacetown. Ayr proper con- 
tains only about 10,000 inhabitants; but, in speaking of its Popu- 
lation it is generally taken in conjunction with Newton and 
Wallacetown, shewing an aggregate of about 22,000. In the 
Charter of erection the name of the Town, derived evidently 
from that of the River, is written Ar, with a dash through the 
r — indicating the true orthography Are. The corruption of 
introducing i first occurs in the records of the neighbouring 
Burgh of Prestwick, where the word is written Aire. In the 
old records of the burgh of Ayr, we find, for several years, Ayre, 
latterly superseded by Aire. In the iSth Century the e was 
dropped, and in process of time the i gave place to y, and the 
present spelling Ayr is now almost universal. Partaking more 
of the Professional than Commercial character — with a Seminary 
long famed for the Education of youth — a fine climate — situate 
in a bay, said to be second only to that of Naples — a beautiful 
Sea beach — moderate rents — excellent Hotels — famous for its 
Races — the returning Parliamentary Burgh of the District — a 
Circuit Station of the Justiciary Court — a Synod and Presby- 
tery Seat — with every grade of Society from the peer to the 
peasant, within its bounds — and with the Scenery in its neigh- 
bourhood, immortalized by Burns — it has for a great many 
years been a favourite resort for families, and individuals having 
the charge of youth; for Invalids ; for Gentlemen of the Naval 



1 

and Military Professions ; for natives who have amassed wealth 
abroad, and for others who have been fortunate enough to be 
able to retire from business at home. If Ayr had attractions 
of old, these have been greatly increased of late. Indeed, we 
may safely assert, that no town in Scotland, of the same extent, 
has, within the last few years, undergone so much improvement 
in every respect. Elegant and costly public and private Build- 
ings have been erected in the Town — the Vicinity has been 
studded with handsome villas — the improvement of the Harbour 
has been attended with a great increase of Shipping — we have 
one Carpet Manufactory, where employment is given to. about 
200 of the Operative classes — the Town and neighbourhood are 
well lighted with gas by two Companies — one spirited Company 
has supplied the Town with water — and another has erected 
Public Baths — and the Glasgow and Ayrshire Hallway has 
brought us, if we may use the expression, within a couple of 
hours of the Western Metropolis, while the South- Western line 
has regularly opened up a communication from Ayr, by Dum- 
fries, to England, of which we have only yet begun to experience 
the advantage. 

THE RIVER AYR AND " THE TWA BRIGS." 

Arrived at the Railway Station at Ayr, the object nearest the 
Traveller, is the River Ayr, about thirty miles long, the source 
of which is on the border of the County, at the eastern extremity 
of the parish of Muirkirk. Its course, after it leaves the hills, 
is remarkable for richness and variety of scenery. It abounds 
with trout, and yielded salmon plentifully, till the erection, in 
1700, of a high dam-dyke at the Town's Mills obstructed their 
passage up the river. About fifty yards from the Station, is 
the New Bridge, and about 200 yards up the river the " Auld 
Brig," which boasted it would be in existence when its more 
modern neighbour was "a cairn o' stanes" : and very nearly, 
had the taunt proved true ; as the New Bridge having be- 
come too narrow for the convenience of the Public, the Com- 
missioners obtained an Act of Parliament to widen it, which 
was accordingly done in 1840. This Bridge was built in 1778, 
and cost about £4000. The old bridge was built in the reign 
of Alexander III (1249-1285), by Isobel Lowe and her sister, 
two maiden ladies, who, tradition states, spent their fortunes on 
the undertaking. In this they are said to have been actuated 
by the philanthropic desire to prevent the loss of life to the 
inhabitants occasionally sustained from crossing by a ford about 
200 yards up the river. 

town's buildings — OLD AND NEW; 

Fronting the visiter, as he crosses the bridge to Ayr, is Sand- 
gate Street, in the centre of which, till 1825, stood the Town's 
Buildings, consisting of Council Room, Jail, and Steeple. At 



the date above mentioned they were removed to allow the inhS" 
bitants the use of the street, at its full width ; and at the corner 
site near the Malt Cross other buildings more elegant and com- 
modious were erected, with a Steeple the highest we believe in 
Scotland, being about 226 feet. The buildings, which are in 
the Grecian style, and of the composite order, were designed by 
Mr Hamilton, architect, Edinburgh, were founded on 28tll 
March, 1828, and cost about £10,000. Though the situation is 
low, the spire can be seen for many miles around Ayr. The 
public rooms consist of a spacious News Room, well furnished 
with newspapers and periodicals, a Ball Eoom, 47| feet long by 
26^ broad, and ante-rooms to each, so constructed that the whole 
can be thrown into one suite of apartments. The Spire, which 
is a great ornament to the town, was struck by lightning in 
the winter of 1835, which dislodged two stones near its summit, 
but fortunately did no farther damage. The injured spot was 
repaired in the following summer. The bell in the spire, weight 
22 cwt., which is remarkable for its fine tone, is heard at a 
great distance. 

WELLINGTON SQUARE, AND COUNTY BUILDINGS. 

Wellington Square, which usually attracts the attention of 
strangers, is of modern formation. The houses, in many in- 
stances, are occupied by the proprietors, and where otherwise, 
rents range from £40 to £70. The feu paid to the town is 3s. 
per fall on the South side, and 6s. on the North. The North- 
west side of the Square is formed by the County Buildings, 
These are the most extensive buildings in Ayrshire ; containing 
Court-house, County Hall, or Assembly Room, and commodious 
chambers for officials connected with the Law Courts and Burgh. 
There are in the County Hall portraits of the late Earl of 
Eglinton, Lord-Lieutenant of the County, in the costume of 
Colonel of the Lowland Eencibles ; of his Lordship's brother- 
in-law, the late John Hamilton of Sundrura (grandfather of the 
present proprietor of Sundrum), and for forty years Convener 
of the County ; and of the late venerable Earl of Glasgow, 
Lord-Lieutenant of Ayrshire. In the rear, enclosed by a high 
wall, is the Prison, where the new system of discipline has been 
very successfully introduced. The buildings were finished in 
1822, and cost upwards of £30,000 ; and they are now being 
enlarged by an extensive addition to the Prison. 

WALLACE TOWER. 

This Gothic building on High Street, seen from a considera- 
ble distance, from the summit of which a fine view is obtained, 
was finished in 1832. It was designed by Mr. Hamilton, and 
cost about £1400. It stands on the site of an old tower, taken 
down in 1830, of which the public records bear no account, but 
which has always been associated with the name of Sir William 



lii 

Wallace. A statue of the renowned chief, cut by Thorn, the 
famed sculptor of " Tam o' Shanter and Souter Johnny," occu- 
pies a niche in front of the new edifice. The Scottish patriot is 
represented, not in warlike attitude, but in a thoughtful mood, 
as if musing on the wrongs of his country. The attitude and 
outline have been censured by some critics, and praised by 
others; but the workmanship has, at all hands, been held to 
be exquisite. The cost of the statue was 120 guineas, and the 
money was subscribed in a fortnight, chiefly through the exer- 
tions of Mr Auld, Doonbrae Cottage (Thorn's chief patron). A 
figure of less pretension and rather dwarfish, cut by Mr Reid 
of Glasgow, was placed in a niche in the gable of the corner 
house, east end of Newmarket Street, in 1810, by Henry Cowan, 
Esq. Mr Cowan put up this statue to replace an old repre- 
sentation of the head of Wallace in the same situation, which 
had fallen into decay. This effigy was originally erected there 
to commemorate the sheltering of Wallace from his enemies 
under that roof. 

THE FORT, ST. JOHN'S CHURCH, &C. 

Passing from Wellington Square towards the river, the visiter 
casts his eye upon an old Tower to his left, in a pasture- 
field of 18 acres. The Tower is a venerable relict of the Burgh 
or Parish Church, founded in the twelfth century, and dedicated 
to St. John the Baptist. The church itself was built in the 
form of a cross ; and, at the eastern end of the transept, had an 
elegant and richly-ornamented Gothic window. In 1560, it fell 
into the hands of the Reformed Clergy, of whom was the Rev. 
John Welsh, of much respected memory, son-in-law of John 
Knox, the Reformer. In 1652 Oliver Cromwell, coveting the 
situation of the ground around the Church, protected on the 
north-west by the river Doon, which then (as elsewhere ex- 
plained) flowed close past it, and on the south-west by the sea, 
which has since greatly receded — took possession of it, turning 
the church into an armoury, and erecting around it a strong 
fortified citadel. The ground plan is in the form of a hexagon, 
but the figures are irregular. The main bastion, occupying the 
north-eastern angle, close upon the harbour, and next the town, 
has a commanding position, and is supposed to occupy the site 
of the ancient palace and castle of Ayr, built by William the 
Lion. The tower had originally two triangular gables, which 
the St. John's Lodge of Freemasons in Ayr removed, substitu- 
ting the present turrets. This spacious enclosure belongs to 
the Marquis of Ailsa, and of late years has been advertised for 
sale. Some public spirited individuals have suggested the idea 
of purchasing it, and laying it out as public walks and gardens 
to ornament the town, and afford a place of recreation and 
amusement for the inhabitants ; and it has been thought that 



. liii 

the expense of its cultivation might be defrayed by the sale of 
annual tickets for families, and by a small charge for admission 
to Promenades, Soirees, and Musical Entertainments, in the 
summer evenings. 

BURGH OR PARISH CHURCH OF AYR. 

Cromwell, though not very ceremonious in the acquisition of 
St. John's Church and grounds, made some compensation to the 
Burgh in money (£160), which aided in the erection of the 
present Old Church of Ayr, on the site of the Franciscan monas- 
tery, founded by the Bishop of St. Andrews ; the only trace of 
which, at the present day, is in the name of a spring called the 
Friars' Well, which issues from the wall of the Old Church- 
yard, into the river Ayr. The galleries, and for the most part 
the seats of the Old Church, are those placed in it when origin- 
ally erected in 1654 ; but it has been recently repaired, heated 
with water pipes, lighted with gas, and made otherwise very 
comfortable. The floor is yet, however, below the level of the 
graves outside. 

Ayr has been a collegiate charge since the days of Queen 
Mary ; and on its junction with Alloway, about the end of the 
17 th century, the stipend, £32, was divided equally between 
the two ministers of Ayr. The stipend of the first charge, held 
by the Rev. Dr. x\uld, is 8| chalders, half meal and half here, 
and one chalder for Communion Elements, with the half of the 
£32 from Allowav, already mentioned, and the half of the 
interest of £1,000 bequeathed to the two Ayr ministers, by John 
Fergusson, Esq., of Doonholm. To this charge is also attached 
a handsome manse with glebe, situate in the suburLs, on the 
Dalmellington road. 

NEW CHURCH. 

The church of the second charge — a modern building, is 
situate close to the entrance to the Fort. The Rev. Alexander 
Cuthill, minister of the second charge, accepted as his assistant 
and successor, the Rev. \Tilliam Shaw, formerly in Bonhill, 
whose emoluments are secured by arrangement entered into 
between tlie Rev. Mr Cuthill and the Patrons, the Magistrates, 
and Kirk Session. The stipend of the second minister consists 
partly of the old stipend of the second charge— of a sum from 
the Exchequer — of an allowance from the Magistrates for extra 
service — of the half of the interest of Mr Fergusson's donation 
of £1,000, and of £46 13s 4d in lieu of a manse and glebe. 

MONASTERIES. 

Besides the Monastery already alluded to, of the Order of 
St. Francis, or Grey Friars, founded by the inhabitants of Ayr, 
in 1472, on the site of which the Old Church of Ayr stands, there 
was, in the same vicinity, near Mill Street, a Monastery of Do- 



llT 

aainicans^or Black Friars, the first of that order established in 
Scotland, founded by the Bishop of St. Andrews, in 1230. The 
charter granted by Alexander II. was dated at Forfar, in 1242, 
and confirmed by Robert Bruce at Girvan, in the 33d year of 
his reign. The ruins of both these religious establishments have 
BOW disappeared. 

MALT CROSS. 

The Malt Cross of Ayr, where all proclamations were made^ 
stood opposite Dr. Whiteside's property, where New-Bridge 
Street meets High Street. It was removed when the New 
Bridge was built in 1778. Coins of Charles II., found at ita 
base, indicate its having been erected during his reign. Here 
Maggie Osburne, " the Ayrshire Witch " — a young woman said 
to have possessed considerable personal charms, and some pro- 
perty, and who lived in that house, now No. 76, High Street, 
aearly opposite the Fish Cross, suffered about the end of the 16th 
century. Being eccentric, she was suspected to be in league 
with Satan — chiefly in reference to having built her house in a 
very expeditious manner — and was tried, condemned, and 
burned at the Stake, on a mound at the west end of the Town's 
Low Green. This, fortunately, was the last scene of the kind 
witnessed in Scotland. In England the penal statutes against 
witchcraft were not abrogated by the legislature till the middle 
of the 18th century, about the year 1752 ; and it is a singular 
coincidence, that the last victim in England was also a female,, 
named " Osbourne ;" an aged pauper, who was killed by a mob 
in Staffordshire, in 1750. Her husband narrowly escaped with 
his life. Barrington estimates the number of persons put tO' 
death in England on the charge of witchcraft, at 30,000 ! 

HARBOUR OF AYR. 

The Harbour of Ayr, like all others formed at the mouths of 
rivers, is not easily kept deep, from the alluvial matter brought 
down during the floods, and deposited at its bar. This draw-back 
has been, in great part, removed within the last few years, by 
walls on either side, a breakwater thrown across the north side of 
the river, and the operations of a Steam Dredge,andDivingBel], 
The chief woi'ks at the Harbour are Messrs Sloan and Gemmell's 
Patent Slip ;;nd Building Yard, on the north side, and Mr 
Paton's Patent Saw Mills, Bone Mill, and Stone Sawing Ap- 
paratus, &c., on the south. A very suitable new Light'iouse 
has lately been erected, on the North side of the river, which, 
from its height and the brilliancy of its gas-lights, affords a 
certain guide to mariners. From the point of the South Pier, 
there is a fine view of the Bay of Ayr, stretching from the 
Kyles of Bute to the Heads of Ayr ; and in very clear weather 
the north-east coast of Ireland may be discerned.

NEWTON AND WALLACETOWN 

Are divided from the town of Ayr proper, by the river Ayr. 
The latest burgh charters of Newton bear date 1595 and 1600, 
but refer to older charters that have not been preserved. Tra- 
dition assigns the original charter to the year 1315, as having 
been then granted by King Robert the Bruce. The land was 
originally divided equally amoog 48 freemen (10 or 12 acres 
each), subject to periodical allotment every ele\en, and later, 
every seven years ; but, in January 1829, the holdings were de- 
clared by agreement to be 999 years, so as to encourage the 
improvement of the land. Newton has a jurisdiction separate 
from that of Ayr. 

Wallacetown, though a quoad sacra parish, is in the parish 
of St. Evox. It is not embraced within the jurisdiction of either 
Ayr or Newton, and has no local magistrates or police. A large 
proportion of the population are coal miners or weavers. Inde- 
pendent of its anomalous position, its buildings have been 
much improved of late, particularly fronting the river Ayr. 

THE PARISH OF ST. EVOX, 

Which includes Wallacetown, lies NE. of Ayr. Population— 
In 1831, 5348 ; 1841, 6055 ; 1851, 7146. Increase since 1831, 
1798. JExtent— The parish contains 5000 acres, and is five 
miles long, and three broad. Boundaries— It is bounded on the 
south by the river Ayr ; and on the east, north, and west, by 
the parishes of Tarbolton, Monkton, and Newton. Character- 
la 1831, the agricultural population was 1071, Wallacetown 
and Content containing 4277 souls. The inhabitants of the two 
latter places, and of Whitletts, belong chiefly to the poorer class 
of Irish settlers, and are employed as colliers, labourers, and 
weavers by Glasgow and Paisley houses. There are also a num= 



Iviii 

"ber of artisans, carters, publicans, and shop-keepers, with an 
undue proportion of strangers frona Ireland, who keep lodging- 
houses, or have means of subsistence equally precarious. Hus- 
bandry is in a flourishing state, and the land is in possession of 
an intelligent and industrious tenantry. There are several ex- 
cellent freestone quarries in the parish. Markets, ^c. — Ayr 
serves as a convenient market town, whose Fairs are common 
to Newton and St. Evox parishes.

IRVINE. 

f Irvine— Town distant 12 miles from Ayr, and 7 miles from Kilmarnock.! 

Irvine, which is a Eoyal Burgh, lies 3 miles from Kilwinning, 
which bounds it on the west ; 7 miles north-west of Kilmarnock ; 
and 12 miles north of Ayr. Boundaries — On the east and south- 
east it is divided from the parish of Dreghorn by the river 
Annick ; on the west it is bounded by the Garnock, which di- 
vides it from Kilwinning ; on the south by the river Irvine, 
which separates it from Dundonald parish ; and on the north 
by the parish of Stewarton. Extent — The land in the parish 
of Irvine extends to 2914 acres of arable, and 3673 acres of 
wood. The parish is upwards of 4 miles in length, and where 
its width is greatest it is nearly two miles broad. Population — 
In 1831, 5200; 1841,5214; 1851, 5665. Increase since 1831, 
465. Character — Agriculture is prosecuted in the parish, and 
upwards of a hundred of the population, male and female, are 
engaged in the cultivation of the soil. The townspeople, in- 
cluding the inhabitants of Fullarton (which is joined with Ir- 
vine in the Parliamentary Burgh), are chiefly employed in 
handloom weaving — the work being supplied to a great extent 
by Glasgow and Paisley houses. The females are principally 
occupied in hand-sewing. Many of the inhabitants of Irvine are 
people who have retired from business, or from the naval and 
military services. Being the capital of a rich agricultural dis- 
trict, and itself the most ancient of the Western ports, it is the 
seat of considerable business. The Academy has earned a well 
merited celebrity as an educational institution, and the teachers 
are, to a certain extent, salaried from the funds of the burgh. 
This forms one of the inducements for respectable families from 
a distance settling down in the locality. Markets, Sfc. — The fol- 
io wing fairs are held in Irvine: — January, horses, 1st Wednes- 
day; May, cattle, 1st Tuesday; July, horses and cattle, Wed- 
nesday before Ayr ; August, lint and wool, 3d Monday — horses, 
Wednesday after.

KILIVIARNOCK. 

(Kilmarnock — distant 12 miles from Ayr.) 

Kilmarnock is situated on the banks of the water of the same; 
name, a short distance above its union with the river Irvine. 
It is the most populous and most rapidly-increasing town in 
Ayrshire. The name is derived from St. Mernock or Mar- 
nock, who lived about the beginning of the fourth century, 
but of whom nothing is known. It does not appear in 
public documents till the fourteenth century, when it is 
mentioned in connexion with the Boyds of Dean : and even then 
Kilmarnock appears to have been a place of little note, the 
name being applied apparently to a tract of land rather than to 
a particular place. In fact, Kilmarnock was a mere hamlet in 
the days of James VI., its people entirely dependent upon their 
feudal superiors — the lords of the neighbouring Dean Castle. 
The favourable situation of the town, and the rich resources of 
the district, combined to increase its importance. In 1591, 
James YL constituted Kilmarnock a free burgh of barony, 
Charles IL confirming the constitution in 1672, In earlier 
times the population were principally employed in manufactur- 
ing " braid bonnets " and " cowls." This trade flourished till the 
middle of the eighteenth century, when the weaving of carpets 
became the chief business of the place. Tlie trades of the town 
at this time received several accessions, and the busy village 
became busier than ever. The extinction of the feudal domi- 
nation of the Boyds, by whom the burgh had been kept in 
subjection, and its sources of wealth contracted ; the forma- 
tion of good roads ; and the Union, produced a vast and 
acceptable change. The opening of the present century saw 
m&ny improvements effected in Kilmarnock. Calico printing 
was introduced, Handloom weaving assumed a more promi- 
nent position among the local trades. Greater facilities of 
conveyance did much to extend the general business of the 
town. A tramway was formed to the seaport of Troon — the first 
of the kind constructed in Scotland ; new buildings were erected; 
the streets, formerly narrow, were widened — famed for their irre- 
gularity in former days, they were made more uniform — and 
otherwise ext^ended and improved. The breadth of the town 
scarcely corresponds with its length ; nevertheless it has a fine 
appearance, favoured by its position in a fertile basin, shel- 
tered by softlj'^-ascending uplands. Kilmarnock claims to be 
the commercial capital of the county, and is to Ayr what Glas- 
gow is to Edinburgh — the one the seat of fashion, learning, and 
law; the other the busy scene of manufactures and commer-

cial traffic. Kilmarnock and its trade have steadily increased 
of late years. In 1840 it was connected by railway with 
Glasgow, Paisley, and the harbours on tiie West coast. 
Daring the last ten years, we have witnessed the Iron Way 
intersecting the entire district — passing up, the fertile valley 
of the Irvine, studded with busy villages ; prosecuting its 
course to the classic braes of the Ayr and Lugar ; penetrating 
the rich mineral districts around Cumnock and Muirkirk ; sup- 
planting the antiquated tramway to Troon ; extending the 
Glasgow and South- Western to Carlisle; and thus making 
Kilmarnock one of the chief links in the chain connecting 
the West Country with England. Kilmarnock is improving, 
too, in he.r educational, musical, and literary institutions. 



Population of Kilmarnock in 1792—6776 

1831—18,093 
1841—19,956 
1851—21,281 
This burgh, with Rutherglen, Port-Glasgow, and Dumbar- 
ton, returns one member to Parliament. Kilmarnock is the 
returning Burgh.

R I CC ARTO N. 

[Riecartoa village— distant 11 miles from Ayr, and 1 mile from Kilmarnock.]

Character— In 1831, with a population of 2499, 193 males were

the Portland Company at Hurlford employ a great number of

IMPROVED DRESSING CASES, 

With STERLING SILVER FITTINGS, Manufactured 
ON THE Premises, 28 Buchanan Street, Glasgow, 

FRO^ FIVE TO FIFTY GUINEAS EACH. 

THE abundant encouragement awarded to S. WOOLFIELD in 
the manufacture of Silver Fitted Dressing Cases has induced 
him to augment his Stock to an extent quite unsurpassed, except 
in a few of the West End shops of London, (where extravagant 
prices are necessarily exacted.) Established as a Maker of these 
articles for nearly half a century, his reputation has not been 
gained without warrant, for each successive year has exhibited 
the improvement which naturally comes from enlarged experi- 
ence and stability of position, and his Dressing Cases are now 
as perfect specimens of their class as it is within the power of 
human industry to accomplish. Their distinguishing charac- 
teristic is great strength and solidity — not designed for mere 
appearance, but for practical utility and lasting durability. As 
travelling necessaries they are incontestibly superior to all 
others, the fittings being so arranged and classified that any de- 
sired article is immediately available, while they are furnished 
to an extent that meets every possible exigency. An additional 
recommendation is their impregnable locks, and improved mor- 
ticed partitions, aff'ording protection and security from break- 
age ; and all springs and intricate mechanism are carefully 
avoided, being always liable to damage by change of climate, &c. 

In the all important matter of price, S. Woolfield's Dressing 
Cases, being economically manufactured in his own Workshops, 
will naturally suggest a condition both favourable to excellence 
and cheapness. For M ARRI AG E PRESENTS especially, they 
are an elegant and becoming gift ; the great variety always in 
Stock affording almost unlimited choice at all prices, from Five 
to Fifty Guineas. 

^*^ Dressing Cases, Writing Desks, and Work Boxes rtf- 
paired, new lined, modernized, and made useful, at very moderate 
prices. 

In addition to the very superior assortment of DRESSING 
CASES, WORK-BOXES, WRITING-DESKS, WORK-TA- 
BLES, TEA-CHESTS, and BAGATELLE BOARDS, manu- 
actured on his own Premises, S. Woolfield imports largely 
from the great Continental manufactories every meritorious 
production in BOHEMIAN GLASS ORNAMENTS, ITALIAN 
ALABASTER, FRENCH CHINA and CLOCKS, BERLIN 
IRON and BROISZES ; and his Stock of PAPIER MA CHE 
and GENERAL FANCY GOODS is at all times unsurpassed 
out of ths metropolis.

Sir Robert Peel,— Tamworth, August 17, 1845. — After 
a long debate I have found great relief from your Pills for the 
Head. 

Mr. George Holmes,— Dale Street, Liverpool, March 6, 
1849j — My wife sufi'ered many years with noise in the ears, which 
your Pills have removed. 

Rev. B. Carter, — Portland Place, London, December 14,

you to use my name as an approver of your Pills ; they are 
really good.

assertions, as I suffered much in my head.

I give you permission to publish my perfect approval of your 
Pills for the Head, and would thank you to send me (per next

Rev. George Farran,— Princess Street, Edinburgh, Feb. 
18, 1845. — Through reading one of your Advertisements I was 
induced to purchase a box of your Pills for the Head, which, I 
am happy to inform you, cured me of the most miserable mel- 
ancholy feelings, which I had endured for eight or nine years. 
I feel now quite another man ; but, least I should have a return 
of it, I would thank you to send me two boxes, that I may be 
prepared should I be again attacked. You are quite at liberty 
to use this humble testimony, if of any service, in any way 
you think proper, as I feel grateful for the service you have

CONSTITUTION HORSE BAL1.S* 

TO Sportsmen, Agriculturists, Postmasters, and all 
Proprietors of Horses, these Balls are particularly 
recommended in all cases of swelled legs, cracked heels, 
loss of appetite, and vital energy; for Coughs, Colds, 
Fever, or Inflammation, they are the best Medicine 
that can be exhibited. Moreover, their operation, 
though effectual, is so mild that they require no alter- 
ation of diet; and if given with a bran mash on 
Saturday night, will not interfere with the ensuing 
week's regular work. 

NEAT CATTLE. 

The Constitution Balls are strongly recommended 
by many highly respectable gentlemen [see Testimoni-

in cases of Hove or Blown, Scouring or turning out 
to grass, or from bad food, Gargate, Hide Bound, Loss 
of Appetite, Staring Coat, Distemper, Epidemic, or 
Influenza. Bullocks fat much faster by occasionally

THESE TABLETS are as convenient and efficacious a remedy 
as can be employed for the removal of coughs. During the last 
fifteen years they have enjoyed a rapidly increasing sale, so that 
they now possess a wide celebrity. To those who are afflicted 
jvith Difficulty of Breathing, or a redundancy of phlegm, they 
give speedy relief, by promoting free expectoration. For 
Aged Persons, they are almost indispensable ; and no one, whose 
lungs are in the least degree susceptible of cold, ought to be 
vithout them. They give immediate and permanent relief in 
cases of cough, and where there is no physical disorganization, 
will speedily effect a cure.

Many persons suffer much from irritation, caused in the 
mucous membrane of the trachea and air cells of the lungs by 
the inhaling of foggy, cold, or damp atmospheres. These mem- 
branes are far more tender and sensitive in some persons than 
in others. Hence, under certain variations from heat, cold, or 
on the approach of even a slight change in the outward air, a 
tickling, distressing cough, and difficult respiration are sure to 
ensue ; and, if neglected, too often prove fatal, To any person 
so affected, WQOLLEY'S PECTORAL CANDY, taken for a 
short time, will prove of eminent service, by strengthening the 
lungs to resist the effect of sudden changes, by blunting the 
acrimony of the humours, and by allaying the painful irritation 
which produces that distressing effort familiarly called coughing.

HOAESENESS. 
This unpleasant, painful, and dintressing result of catching 
cold, may, at any time, be removed by taking a few tablets of 
Woolley's Pectoral Candy. Hence, singers and public 
epeakers will find them of singular advantage. 

ASTHMA. 

This distressing disease of the lungs may be greatly mitigated 
in its effects by Woolley's Pectoral Candy, while in most 
cases complete and permanent cures are (very often quickly) 
produced. In cases of moist Asthma, this candy will at once 
prevent that soreness which is the result of constant expectora- 
tion ; and in dry or nervous Asthma, it promotes that degree of 
expectoration by which the painful coughing may be greatly 
prevented. 

TO THE PUBLIC IN GENERAL. 

But few persons are aware of the very great importance of 
checking a cough in its first stage. That which in the beginning 
would yield to a mild remedy, if neglected, soon preys upon 
the lungs ; acrid humours increase, and powerful medicines tail 
to relieve the cough. Here the value of the Pectoral Candy is 
most apparent. By the use of a few of these convenient tablets, 
a check is at once given to the progress of the disease. Th© 
irritation being allayed by their soothing, sedative, and healing 
influence, and free expectoration being promoted, the various 
membranes speedily resume their usual tone, and those fatal 
diseases, of which a slight cough is but too often the forerunner, 
may be averted. No one ought to be without a remedy that is 
at once convenient, agreeable, and efficacious, but at the same 
time perfectly innocent. Another important principle in this 
candy is, that it may be taken without any fear of disordering 
the stomach ; on the contrary, it operates as a tonic, and greatly 
strengthens the digestive organs.

Referring to their " Holdfast Safes" (See List No. 3, page 3,

lishing the following report, addressed to their Agents, of a 
night's unsuccessful labour of robbers to obtain the valuable 
contents of their Safe, in the use of a large sugar-house in Glas- 
gow : — 

Messrs. David Boyd & Co. 

Gentlemen, — Our Milners' Safe was attempted to be broken 
open last night ; but, notwithstanding the great and persever- 
ing violence with which the robbers have worked at the door 
and back of the Safe (both of which are beaten in and cut 
through the outer plates in numerous places), the lock and bolts 
remained true, and saved the contents. You may send us 
another Milners' Holdfast Safe, No. 6.

In the numerous accidental Fires and experimental tests 
which Milners' Safes have been exposed to — every descrii^tion of 
Safe in use — Fire-proof (so called) or otherwise, have been 
burnt out beside them, confirming the recommendation of the 
. scientific and practical authorities who have tested them ; and 
the Patentees, during seven years' active working of their pa- 
tent, on a rapidly extending scale, have spared no pains nor 
cost in effecting improvements, by wdiich they are enabled to

cluding the strongest Wrought Iron Safes, Closets, and Doors 
in the World, lined with their unequalled Fire-resisting Cham- 
bers. Out of upwards of 20,000 of their Safes in use amongst 
the Manufacturing and Commercial Houses in Great Britain — 
the class best able to appreciate their value — numerous cases 
of severe trial in accidental Fires have occurred, from which 
Thomas Milner and Son select the following as instances, in 
which they are of opinion that no other Safe than their own 
would have preserved its contents unburnt. 

Fire at Mr. J. B. Blackaller's Ship Chandlery Store, Spar- 
ling-street, Liverpool ; a strong and fierce Fire ; Safe most 
severely burnt outside ; contents unsinged. 

Fire at Messrs. J. & W. Walkers', the extensive builders, 
Birkenhead : buildings entirely gutted, everything burnt in 
them, including the contents of large Iron Safe and Drawers, 
standing beside Milners' : the contents of Milners' uninjured, 
and in use now. 

Fire at Messrs. Garniss & Co.'s, Park-lane ; a very strong 
Fire ; again the contents of Milners' Safe the only things saved 
on the premises. 

Fire at Plimsaul Brothers, of Plymouth ; a very extensive 
and destructive Fire ; a large Iron Safe, covered with brick- 
work, with double Iron doors, burnt out ; Milners' entirely pre- 
serving its contents. 

Fire in Queen-street, Glasgow ; a great number of Safes and 
Closets burnt out : no books saved throughout the buildings 
excepting Messrs. S. K. & Thomas Brown's, in Milners' Safe.

MILNERS' " HOLDFAST " and FIRE-RESTSTING 
SAFES are the strongest, best, and cheapest safeguards in the 
world against fire, robbery, and fraud : 20,000 of them keep 
the books, deeds, and cash of the practical men of Liverpool, 
Manchester, Glasgow, &c., who know their superiority to any 
others. Five of them have brought their contents unscathed 
out of the ruins of large fires in Glasgow alone this year, where- 
in scores of other Safes have been burnt out. Twenty-five 
offices were burnt out in Lincoln's-innin January, in one alone 
of which the title-deeds of thirty large landed estates were 
burnt, which would all have been preserved in Milners' Safes.

€ur€ of a case of Asthma of Ten Years' Standing, by " WooUey's

Reddltch, Worcestershire, March l^th, 1851. 

Sir, — I have the pleasure of ini'orming you of the cure of a 
sister of mine, of Asthma of ten years' duration, by your 
Pectoral Candy. 

I am, yours truly, James Duggins, 

Temperance Hotel. 

N.B. — I could tell you of another cure ; but the person said 
he should write to you himself. This was the person who re- 
commended it to my sister. 

Plymouth Foundry, Plymouth, Devon, March 22d, 1850. 

Sir, — I think it a duty I owe to yourself and the public, to 
inform you of the great benefit 1 have derived from your Pec- 
toral Candy. 1 have been troubled with a severe cough for 
the last seven years, and, although I have had the very best 
medical advice, could obtain no permanent relief until I fortun- 
ately tried ycur Candy; and, after taking two small boxes, I 
find myself free from cough. You have my permission to give 
publicity to this statement. 

Yours, &c., John Edmond Mare. 

To Mr Woolley. 

Chatham, April 15, 1850. 

Dear Sir, — Mrs Chiseman, of Garden Street, Brompton, has 
been cured of a cough of four years' standing, ! y taking one 
box of your Pectoral Candy, and is desirous of expressing her 
gratitude, in order that others, similarly afflicted, may obtain 
the same benefit. Please send me three dozen of the large 
boxes for her brother to take out to the Mauritius with him 
next week. I can also add my testimony, that, from the many 
cases I have seen of its decided eificacy, I am persuaded it 
stands unrivalled as a general Cough medicine. 

Yours truly, Henry Watts, Chemist, Chatham.

Mr Starling, 16, Marsham Street, Maidstone, has been 
under the care of Dr. Cobb, Great St. Helen's; Dr. Addison, 
Chief Physician to Guy's Hospital ; and Dr. Powell, Tonbridge 
Wells. His disease was pronounced "Ulcers on the Lungs." 
These eminent men told him, when he appeared to be sinking, 
that they could do nothing more for him. It was then he was 
advised, by a friend, to make trial of Woolley 's Pectoral

health, and attending to his business with energy. Mr Starling 
has requested the proprietor lo make his case known, in order 
to encourage others whose cases have been pronounced hopeless, 
not to despair till this fine remedy has been used. 

Garden Street, Brompton, April 20, 1851. 
Sir, — It gives me much pleasure to be able to certify to the 
goodness of your valuable Pectoral Candy, for the great relief 
it has given to my wife. Having seen your advertisement in 
the " Kent Herald," I was fortunate enough to get a box of the 
candy ; and, although my wife has been troubled with a cough 
these four or five years, with a tightness on the chest, and, at 
times, she was hardly able to breathe, strange, but true to say, 
your first box relieved her ; and I, as well as my wife, return 
you our thanks for your valuable medicine.

me another box of your most useful, nay, invaluable Pectoral 
Candy. It has effected, in my case, a cure of an Asthma and 
Cough, which have been a heavy trouble to me for the last 
thirty years ; for it settled on my lungs when I was recovering 
from the Measles when a child, and I never thought to get rid 
of it, having tried every remedy that could be heard of, and 
being reduced to despair. But, thanks to your wonderful 
Candy, I am now restored, and give you my deepest gratitude, 
I remain, Sir, yours respectfully, 

Elizabeth Butler. 
1, Kerhey Street, Poplar, September 30, 1851. 
Sir, — I cannot speak too highly of the excellency of Woolley's 
Pectoral Candy. I have suffered for years with a dreadful 
cough and difBculty of breathing. In this distressing state I 
was recommended to try Woolley's Pectoral Candy, the first 
box of which gave me great relief, the second box completely 
cured me. I have recommended them to many of ray friends 
who were similarly afflicted, who have all received the greatest 
relief from them. 

I am. Sir, yours obliged, Octavius Glyn.

^This Society was established in the year 1815, upon the principle of Mutual 
Vontribution, and thus belongs to that class of Life Assurance Institutions 
which is now almost universally admitted to be the best, and which is at all 
events the most popular. 

The objection usually urged against a Society founded upon this principle is 
the risk attendant on its failure, from an unexpected mortality amongst the 
Members, in an early period of its existence. No such objection, however, can 
apply to a Society which has been in existence upwards of 35 years — having rea- 
lised and accumulated a CAPIT'iL oi upwards of TWO MILLIONS, and 
possessing upwards of 6000 Members. 

This Society has been more than usually successful in its opei-ations, and there 
are few establishments of the kind in the kingdom which surpass it in the num- 
ber and extent of its transactions— the amount of Assuranc8S passed dur- 
ing the last twelve years, having, on an average, exceeded Half 
a Million per annum. 

The benefits of the Society are open to all classes of the community. Policies 
are issued for sums varying in amount from £50 to £5000. 

The affairs of the Society are carefully scrutinised and examined, and its 
Funds and Liabilities are valued at stated intervals of seven years ; the Profits 
ascertained at these leriodical investigations are divided, and appropriated for 
the benefit of the Assured — not less than one-third being set aside as a Guarantee 
Fund, to maintain the stability of the Institution, and the remainder being 
divided amongst the Members entitled to participate in them.

From the above Table, it will be seen that in the case of a party who joined 
this Society in any year from 1815 to 1819 inclusive, dying after payment of the 
Premium due in the year 1850, his representatives would receive for each £1000 
insured the sum of £1990 7s. 5d., or 

A Bonus of very nearly lOO per cent: 

And in the same proportion whatever the amount of Assurance. 

In like manner, in the case of a party insured in the year 1830, dying after 
payment of the Premium due in 1850, his representatives would receive in the 
ratio of £1472 8s. lid. for each £1000 insured, or 

A Bonus of upwards of 4-7 per cent» 



Additions to Policies may either be allowed to remain incorporated with the 
original Assurance, or their value may be received in present cash, or applied 
towards the reduction of the future Annual Premiums^

ASSURANCE A DUTY. 

It may be felt by many, that, admitting this duty in full, their income is 
nevertheless insufficient to enable them to spare even the pmall sum necessary 
as an annual premium for Life Assurance. The necessities of the present are 
in their case so great, that they do not see how they can afford it. We be- 
lieve there can be no obstacle which is apt to appear more real than this, 
where an income is at all limited ; and yet it is easy to show that no obstacle 
could be more ideal. It will be readily acknowledged by everybody who has 
an income at all, that there must be some who have smaller incomes. Say, 
for instance, that a man has £400 per annum ; he cannot doubt that there 
are some who have only £350. Now, if the.<e persons live on £350, why may 
not he do so too, sparing the odd £50 as a premium for Life Assurance ? In 
like manner, he who has £200 may live as men do who have only £175, antl 
devote the remaining £25 to have a sum assured ujjon his life. And so on. 
It may require an effort to accomplish this ; but is not tiie object worthy of 
an effort 1 And can any man be held as honest, or any w^y good, who will 
not make such an effort, rather than be always liable to the risk of leaving 
in beggar J' the beings whom he most cherished on earih, and for whose sup- 
port he alone is responsible ? — Chambers^ Infurmation fur the People.

No. 14, ST. ANDREW SQUARE, EDINBURGH. 
THE ONLY OFFICE IN WHICH THE BENEFIT OF 

MUTUAL ASSUEANCE CAN BE OBTAINED 
AT A MODERATE PREMIUM. 

The Assured are at the sametime specially exempt 
from personal liability. 

The Premiums are about a fourtli lower tlian 
in tlie other Mutual Offices — so tliat tlie same Pre- 
mium wliicli at age 30^ is charged in tliem for an 
Assurance of £1000^ will secure a Policy, in this 
Office, for £1230. 

The Whole Profits are divisible among the 
Assured, on a new and equitable principle, pecu- 
liarly favourable to good lives. 

That principle is, that the surplus should be re- 
served for those Members whose Premiums, with 
accumulated interest, amount to the sums in their 
Policies, instead of being frittered away among 
Policies of short duration, on which there is a loss, 
and not a profit, to the common fund. 

The share of profit may be applied in addition 
to the Policies, or in diminution, or extinction, of 
the future Premiums, at the option of the Assured. 

Since the commencement, in 1837, 5000 Poli- 
cies have been issued, a number greatly beyond

The Business of this Association embraces Assurances 
on Lives and Survivorships, for the whole term of life or f )r 
limited periods; Annuities, Endowments, and generally every 
description of risk contingent on the duration of human life. 
Progress of the Business. 

The Board of Directors in Scotland refer with much 
gratification to the increasing prosperity of the Association, and 
to the large amount of business transacted during the past year, 
as affording unquestionable evidences of public favour and 
confidence. 

The new Assurances effected during the year 1850, consid- 
erably exceeded the sum of Two Hundred Thousand Pounds^ 
producing in New Premiums upwards of Nine Thousand 
Pounds ; the Animal Income during the same period, exclusive 
of Annuity Purchase Money, amounted to Eifty-two Thou- 
sand Three Hundred Pounds, the Funds Invested to upwards 
of a Quarter of a Million, and the Subsisting Assurances to 
One Million One Hundred and Eighty Thousand Pounds. 

THE POLICIES 
of the Association are effectually secured by a protecting 
Capital of One Million Sterling, fully subscribed by a numer- 
ous and wealthy body of Proprietors, and thus present a most 
advantageous mode of Investment for Family Provision, with 
entire exemption from responsibility. 

THE PREMIUMS 
may be paid Yearly, Half "Yearly, Quarterly, for a limited term 
of Years, or in a Single Payment— at the option of the Assured.

THE PROFITS 



are divided at each Investigation, according to an approved and 
equitable system of division, whereby substantial justice is 
secured to all the Assured, without any unfair preference being 
given to the earlier Entrants, either by an indefinite postpone- 
ment of the period of Investigation — by drawing back at each 
Division to the date of the Original Assurance — or by any other 
modification of the Tontine principle, as opposed to that of pure 
Life Assurance, whereby the Interests of new Entrants are ex<- 
posed to an unequal and disadvantageous competition with 
those of the older Members. The Bonus Additions vest imme- 
diately on declaration ; and they may be appropriated in any 
of the following wavs : — 

/. As a PERMANENT ADDITION to the Sum Assured 
by the Policy. 

II. In Reduction of the FUTURE PREMIUMS payahk

III. By an Immediate CASH PAYMENT of the present

Intending Assurers are particularly requested to observe 
that they have thus placed within their own choice every possible 
mode of appropriating the Bonus Additions declared upon their 
Policies, in the way which they may consider most suitable to 
their own views and circumstances. 

THE FIRST INVESTIGATION 

took place at Christmas 1846, when a Reversionary Bonus of 

Two PER Cent.per Annum, vesting immediately on declaration, 

was added to all Policies entitled to participate in the Division.

HALF-CREDIT PREMIUMS. 
Persons who may find it inconvenient to pay the full Annual 
Premium at first, may effect Assurances for the Whole Term 
of Life on the Half-Credit Scale, whereby one half of the 
Annual Premiums may remain unpaid for Three, Five, or Seven 
years ; — the arrears being either paid up at the end of the 
period, or allowed to remain as a permanent debt against the

Policy, in the option of the Assured. Such Policies receive 
the full advantage of Bonus Additions on the Whole Sum Assured^ 
the value of whicl), when declared, may, if desired, be applied 
towards extinction of the arrears of premium. They also afford 
this important adv.intage, — that Assurances may thus be 
effected at an earlier age, and consequently at a much lower 
rate of Premium, than if postponed until the party is enabled 
to pay the full amou it of the Annual Premium.

ought to be conducted ; and, amongst the numerous Life In- 
surance Offices now competing for the public favour, very few, 
comparatively, have attained such a period of endurance. The 
Edinburgh Life Assurance Company has been successfully con- 
ducted for upwards of Twenty-seven Years, being the best 
guarantee that all the advantages hitherto given to the Assured, 
will be continued to present and future Entrants. 

By a Policy with this Company, the highest benefits that 
can be obtained from adopting Life Assurance as a Family Pro- 
vision, are secured to the Assured without liability. 

Nine-tenths of the Whole Profits are Septennially divided 
among the Assured on the Participation Scale ; a larger pro- 
portion than can ever be safely divided by simple Mutual 
Assurance Societies, in which at least one-third must always be 
laid aside to form a guarantee. 

The benefits of Insurance on the Participation Plan are ex- 
hibited in the Company's Bonus Declarations in 1835, 1842, and 
1849 — the total Bonus in two instances exceeding the sura 
originally insured ; others in proportion. See Prospectus, to 
be had gratis, on application. 

An intermediate Bonus between one investigation and 
another. 

The Non-Participation Scale of Premiums being extremely 
moderate, is suited for money transactions ; and also presents 
the advantage of an immediate Bonus of considerable amount,^ 
when compared with most other Offices.

AGENTS, KII.MARNOCK, 

Beg leave to recommend tlie protection afforded 
by this Institution against tlie destructive ravages 
of fire, which, in a few moments, may lay waste 
the fruits of a whole life of industry. 

The experience of more than half a century has 
manifested to the public the promptitude and 
liberality with which all losses have been adjusted 
by the Phcenix Fire Office, to the extent of up- 
wards of Sia^ Millions Sterling. 

Persons Insured by this Company do not depend 
upon restricted funds for the payment of their 
claims ; nor are they liable to make good the 
losses of others, as is the case in many Offices.

SURRENDER OF BONUS FOR VALUE IN CASH. 

According to this method, if the person assured does 
not wish the sum in his policy increased, he may sur- 
render the Bonus, and take its value in cash ; that is^ 
instead of the amount being' paid with the sum assured 
at death, such a sum will not be given as the Directors 
may consider equivalent to it in present value. 

Example. -^In. the case of the policy of £1000 opened 
before 15th November 1825, for instance, as quoted 
above, assuming the party to have assured at the 
age «of 35, and to be novv 60 last birth-day, the 
sum of £463, 7s. 9d. would be given for a surren^ 
der of the Bonus of £873, while the policy will 
continue to receive its share of profits, at future 
investigations, as if the surrender had not taken 
place.

" Gentlemen,— I may here mention that your Wafers give great satisfac^ 
tion ; one case in particular :— An old gentleman, who for years has been afflic- 
ted with Asthma, and seldom had a quiet night's rest, had used very many 
proprietary medicines, as well as medical prescriptions, but all were of no use. 
Since he began to use Locock's Wafers, he feels himself quite well again. He 
sleeps well at night, and is quite refreshed in the morning.
