In presenting to the public the seventh edition of the Directory, the 
publisher with gratitude acknowledges the valuable assistance he has 
received from many respectable individuals, and solicits a continuance 
of such favours, as he is thereby enabled to make his Lists more com- 
plete, and consequently more generally useful. 

With regard to the usefulness of suck a work, he deems it unneces- 
sary to say much, as this, on the slightest inspection, will be found ap* 
parent. The Lists and Tables inserted in the Appendix are of the 
most useful description, and suitable not only to the Merchant and 
Trader, but to the public generally. In the accuracy of details, and 
distinctness of arrangement, he is aware that the chief value of suck 
a work consists; ^he has, therefore, spared neither pains nor expense 
in securing these. As it will require a series of publications to re- 
vinnerate hlmforJiis labours, he looks forward with confidence to a 
discerning public, for that support in his undertaking which his exer- 
tions require; at same time, he pledges his most unremitting attention. 
■to every source of information whereby he may render his Directory in 
every way worthy the very distinguished patronage it has already re- 

As there are but few Copies throion off, except what are subscribed 
for, non-subscribers will require to make early application; and, to 
prevent disappointment, it will be found advantageous for those who 
ti-ish to secure a copy, to give in their names when the surveys are 



Tlie ptihlic are respectfully requested, when Removals . and change 
of Firms take place, to send early notice to the Publisher, that the 
Lists may be , made up by the \st of May. Such Notices require to 
he accurate, as they are inserted verbatim. Attending to these notices, 
will be found of much public advantage, by securing accuracy in the 
Lists. — All communications, post paid, will be-duly attended to. 

N. B. — Bookbinding — Copperplate Engraving and Printing'—

For the Recovery of the apparerdly Droioned or Dead. 

IN APPARENT DEATH three objects are constantly to be 
kept in view : 1st, to remove every hurtful cause ; 2d, to regulate 
the temperature of the body; 3d, to restore breathing. For these 
purposes the following directions may be usefully employed, till 
medical assistance arrive, which ought instantly to be sent for in 
every case. ' 

In a case of Droiv7iing. (■ _ .: 

Remove as qni.ckly as possible all wet clothes from the body, dry 
jt well, wrap it in any warm woollen covering,,, and convey it, with 
the head and breast moderately raised, to the. nearest house, where 
none but useful assistants ought to be admitted. Let the body now 
be laid on a warm bed or upon a warm blanket near a fire, but not 
exposed to a strong heat. Let the lost heat be restored by rubbing 
the surface with warm cloths or hand:?, by wrapping a piece of warni 
flannel or blanketting round the waist, and by applying warm sub- 
stances, ^rs^ and chiefly to tha trunLand head, next to the limbs. 
The most convenient for this puVpose are bottles or flasks filled with 
warm water, and bags or stockings filled with hot grains, chaff, bran, 
salt, or sand; Large glysters of warm water should also be exhibit- 
ed. To restore the breathing, let a person firbily, compress the npsr 

Public Offices. Appendix. ilT 

trils vvifn the fingers of one band, then apply his tnauth across the 
mouth of ihe .body, and blow forcibly; let him Jio.w hft his head, 
and the air will escape. This operation is to be commenced as 
soon as possible, and continued till natural breathing return, or till 
the case appear hopeless. If waiter in the mouth and nostrils pre,- 
vent inflation of the lungs, it ought to be' discharged by blowing in- 
to the raouth while the nostrils are left open. 

In a case of Strangling. 
Remove every thing tight from the nfick and breast, then proceed 
to- inflate the lungs and restore heat, as directed above. 

In a case of Suffocation from Impure Air. •r'i 

Admit fresh air. infiafe the lungs, and if the body be cold, re- 
store heat as directed above j if, as sometimes happens, it be warmer 
than naturally, reduce the heat by dashing the head, neck, and 
breast, §ip^r,c|y with cold water. 

■}?> .ao''/» )a case of Apparent Death by Lightning. 
Besides lismg the same means as for sufi'ocation, give large glys- 
ters of salt and water, and use friction over the whole body. 

In a case of Apparent Death from Intense Cold. 
Avoid placing the body at first near the .fire, use friction rather 
than apply heat for a time f in other respects act as for drowning. 

In a Case of Excessive Intoxication. 
If the breathing be suspended, act as for drowning,. gfye larg^e 
glysters of salt and water, endeavour to bring up the contents of the 
stomach by tickling the throat with feathers j for the same purpose 
when the power of swallowing is restored, give copious draughts of 
warm water. , • 

To prevent Death from Loss of Blood. 
If from a wound, apply firm pressure to the wound by the finger, 
or a small pad, till medical assistance can be procured. If fainting 
has taken place, lay the patient in the recumbent position, and ap- 
ply hartshorn to the nostrils.— If the bleeding is from an internal 
part, apply cold wet cloths, and avoid all stimulants. •-" i^ 

A Medical Apparatus lies in the Town's Hospital, another ill the 
House of Recovery.

Johnstone Cross, nearly opposite to the Black Bull Inn, is dis^ 
Tant from the Cross of Paisley, 3 miles, 5furlonps, 34 poles. Fairs 
are held on the Thursday following the second Monday of July and 
on the last Thursday of October, for cattle ; also, on the last Friday 
of December for horses. 

Although this market is not generally known^ being but lately es^ 
tablished ; yet, from the excellent supply of cattle brought forward, 
promises to be one of the most numerously attended Fairs in the- 
West of Scotland. The market place is spacious and very exten-^ 
sive, affording accommodation rarely to be met with*

*LMHa's Day, 3d Tuesday of July, Old Style. 
•St. Barchan's Day, ist Tuesday of December, Old Style, 

• Old Style is too antiquated to be understood now, and we would recommend to 
the inhabitants of those villages who regulate their Fairs by it, to join in " the pro- 
gressing march of intellect." The Russians who are in the rear of European civili- 
zation, have lately adopted New Style* and surely we will not allow ourselves to 
4roop behind.

A,nd various kinds of small retailers; 
Stirweons, tnidwives, and innkeepers, 
Blacksmiths, and painters, chimney sweepers. 
Who have to let well-furnished rooms, 
Who curl hair and sell perfumes. 
Who strive from drownin<r you to save, 
'»Vho make your coffins, dig your graves, 
Who guard your merits when you're gone, 
By 'jjraving them on your tomb- stone. 
Who for misdeeds bestow rebukes, 
Who bind, buy, sell, or lend out books. 
Bellmen, door-keepers, and precentors, 
Number who vote for parliameuters, 
'J'he members of incorporations, 
And all who fill our public stations ;. 
Town criers, agents, auctioneers. 
And who at funerals furnish tears. 
JVlinisters, teachers, police rules, 
Sabbath and week-day evening schools, 
Those men who vigorous efforts join. 
To circulate the word divine, 
When banks are open , and when shut, 
And where all carriers put up ; 
The places whence all coaches start, 
When they arrive, and when depart, 
The time of starting of the post. 
Where stamps are sold, and what they cost, 
The saving banks, fire engines' stations, 
The newest tables of taxation. 
About the boats, which will convey 
Yourself or goods the cheapest way ; 
Tables by which you'll quickly see 
How days of weeks and months agree, 
Letter writers, money lenders. 
Fish, bacon, egg, and other venders, 
Cattle shows, and ploughing matches, 
The regattas, and steam coaches, 
Porters, barrowmen, and their fares, 
For to convey your goods and wares. 
Sailing vessels, large and small, 
Agents, masters, trade, and all. 
Where you may have the cheapest readmg, 
Also steam vessels and cowfeeding ; 
1 these and other things will show. 
Which 'tis desirable to know, 
Knowledge like this there's little doubt, 
Few prudent men will go without. 
You'll have it all, you soon will see, 
If you become possess'd of me.

In presenting to the Public the Thied Edition of tlie DisECTortr 
for the Lower Ward of RF.NFUEwsuinE, the Publisher, with 
gratitude acknowledges the valuable assistance he has received f-om 
many respectable individuals, and solicits a continuance of such fa» 
vours, as he is thereby enabled to make his Lists more complete, 
end consequently more generally useful. The numes of the streets 
and the numbers of the houses in Greenock and Gourock have recently, 
at the Publisher's request, been painted on conspicuous places, and 
he respectfully recommends to the fevars and inhahitants to preserve 
these names and numbers, and to obliterate the old ones. The deli- 
very of letters and parcels, tke finding of places wanted, ^c. ^c. will 
thus be very greatly facilitated. 

With regard to the usefulness of such a work, he deems it unneces- 
sary to say much, as this, on the slightest inspection, will be found ap- 
parent The Lists and Tables inserted in the Appendix are ofth^ 
most useful description, and suitable not only to the Merchant and 
Trader, but to the public generally. In the accuracy of details, and 
distinctness of arrangement, he is aware that the chief value of suck 
a work consists; he has, therefore, spared neither pains nor expense 
in securing these. As it will require a series of publications to re-" 
wunerate him for his labours, he looks forward with confidence to a 
discerning public, for that support in his undertaking ivhich his exer- 
tions require; at same time, he pledges his most unremitting attention 
to every source of information whereby he may render his Directory in 
every wuy worthy the very distinguished patronage it has already re- 
ceived. Although not promised, a Tide Table is given with this edi- 
tion gratis. The publisher cannot promise to continue it, unless he 
meets with that encouragement to enable him to do so. 


The public are respectfidly requested, when Removals and change 
of Firms take place, to send early notice to the Publisher, that the 
Lists may be made up by the \st of May. Such Notices require to 
he accurate, as they are inserted verbatim. Attending to these notices, 
will be found of much public advantage, by securing accuracy in the 
Lists. — All communications, post paid, will be duly attended to,

For the Recovery of the apparently Drowned or Dead, 


IN APPARENT DEATH three objects are constantly to be 
kept in view; 1st, to remove every hurtful cause; 2d, to regulate 
the temperature of the body; 3d, to restore breathing. For these 
purposes the following directions may be usefully employed, till me- 
dical assistance arrive, which ought instantly to be sent for in every 

Directions, S^'c. Appendix. 135 

In a Case of Drowning. 

Remove as quickly as possible all wet clothes from the body, dry 
it well, wrap it in any warm woollen covering, and convey it witn 
the head and breast moderately raised, to the nearest house, where 
none but useful assistants ought to be admitted. Let the body now 
be laid in ^ "arm bed or upon a vvarm blanket near the fire, but not 
exposed to a strong heat. Let the lost heat be restored by rubbing 
the surface with war(n cloths or hands, by wrapping a piece of warm 
flannel or blanketinfj; round the waist, and by applying warm substan- 
ces, ^irs^ and chleflu to the trunk and head, tiext to the limbs. The 
tnostconvenienc tor this purpose are bottles or flasks filled with warm 
wafer, and bags or stockings filled with hot grains, chaff, bran, salt, or 
sand Large glysters of vvarm water should also be exhibited. To 
restore the breaching, let a person firmly compress the nostrils with 
the fingers of one hand, then apply his mouth accross the mouth of 
the body, and blovv forcibly ; let him now lift his head and the air will' 
escape. This operation is to be commenced as soon as possible, and 
continued till natural breathing return, or till the case appear hope- 
less. If water in the mouth and nostrils prevent inflation of the 
lungs, it ought to be discharged by blowing into the mouth while the 
nostrils are left open. 

In a Case of Strangling. 

Remove every thing light frotn the neck and breast, then proceed 
to inflate the iungs and restore heat, as directed above. 

In a Case of Suffocation from Impure Air* 
Admit fresh air, inflate the lungs, and restore heat as directed abovpj 
if the body be cold ; if, as sometimes happens, it be warmer than na- 
turally, reduce the heat by dashing the head, neck, and breast smart- 
ly with cold water. 

In a Case of apparent Death from Lightning, 
Besides u.sing the same means as for suffocation, give large glysters 
of salt and water, and use friction over the whole body. 

In a Case of Apparent Death from Intense Cold. 
Avoid placing the body at first near the fire, use friction rather 
than apply heat for a time ; in other respects, act as for drowning. 

In a Case of Excessive Intoxicaton. 

If the breathing be suspended, act as for drowning, give large glys- 
ters of salt and water, endeavour to bring up the contents of the 
stomach by tickling the throat with feathers j for the same purpose, 
when the power ol swallowing is restored, give copious draughts of 
warm water. 

To prevent Death from loss of Blood. 

If from a wound, apply firm pressure to the wound by the finger, 
or a small pad, till medical assistance can be procured. — If fainting 
has taken place, lay the patient in the recumbent position, and ap- 
ply hartshorn to the nostrils. — If the bleeding is from an irKerrml' 
pact, apply cold wet clothes, and avoid- all stimulants.

05= The Publisher feels much pleasure in calltji^ the at- 
tention of his readers, particularly those of them who are in 
the habit of passing some part of the summer season on the 
coast, to this beautifully situated, and easily accessible vil- 
lage. The names of the streets have recently been painted on 
conspicuous places, and the houses numbered, so that letters 
and parcels may 7iow be so explicitly directed, that all chances 
of delay are removed. The list of lodging house swill be found 
peculiarly useful, as, at a single glance, the number of apart- 
ments and beds are seen, and strangers will thus know, at once, 
where to apply, according to the extent of accommodation

A neat pleasant village on the coast of the Clyde, containing 
some good Inns, and environed by m^ny agreeable Villas ; occupy- 
ing nearly a mile in length of the sea-shore of Cunningham, the 
northern division of Ayrshire; its distance S. W. from Greenock 
being 14 miles J from Paisley 22 ; from Ardrossan, N.W. 13; and 
from Ayr, also N W. 32. Although pretty closely hemmed in by 
hills, the shore over which the buildings of the Town are spread, is 
flat ; and the beach is particularly favourable for bathing, screened 
by the hills in question from the keen blasts of the north, and from 
the raw breezes of the east. Largs boasts of a peculiarly mild ge- 
neral temperature, and as the air, while qualified with a healthful 
impregnation of saline particles, is rarely loaded with fog, allowed 
salubrity of climate has occasionally procured for the place the ap« 
pellation — " Montpellier of Scotland." From these and other causes^ 
the Town has of late years become a fashionable resort for bathing 

1 98 LARGS. 

in the summer; during the season there are from 1,500 to 2,000 vi- 
sitors. Independent of the beach, a handsome building is erected 
near the sea for Hot, Cold, Vapour, and Shower Baths, to which h 
attached a large Coffee Room, Billiard Room, and Library; strang- 
ers are admitted to become subscribers by the week, month, or whole 
season. This erection cost nearly £2,000, and is managed by a 
committee. Provisions of all kinds are readily procured- Fi^h in 
particular are plentiful and good. Indeed the Largs fishermen con- 
tribute greatly to the supply of Greenock, Glasgow, and Paisley, 
with this article. By the numerous Steam-boats almost hourly call- 
ing at the place, whatever is wanted for family use, and not furnished 
by the place, may be easily obtained. There are also in the Town, 
various well-stocked retail shops, in which grocery goods, liquors, 
haberdashery, hardware, &c. are sold. 

Close by the Town, in the year 1253, was fought the celebrated 
battle of Largs betvvixt the Scots, and a powerful army of Nor- 
wegians or Norsemen, when the latter were defeated with immense 
slaughter, an event which put an end to their predatory expeditions, 
and caused their rapid expulsion from every settlement which they 
forcibly held in the Scottish dominions. The issue of this battle 
was no less important to the nation than the overthrow of other in-» 
truders was at a subsequent period ; for, had the Norwegians been 
successful at Largs, and the English at Bannoekburn, it is probable 
that the very name of Scotland would have been annihilated. Nu- 
merous monumental tumuli, cairns, and stone coflSns, in which have 
been found ancient warlike implements, axes, and spears, are to be 
roet with over the whole face of this part of the country. 

One great desideratum in Largs is the want of the names of the 
streets being painted on the corners, and the houses numbered in the 
same manner as Gourock, Greenock, and other towns and vil- 
lages in Renfrewshire, the whole of which were done at the sugges- 
tion of the compiler of this work, and finished according to his ar- 
rangement, and under his immediate superintendance ; which ar- 
angeoients have been approved of by the several authorities) aod

given general satisfaction. It would certainly be very beneficia', 
were every City, Town, and Village arranged in the s-ime manner, 
but particularly Sea-bathing quarters, the want of which has been a 
just ground of complaint by strangers visiting the place, and even by 
the inhabitants themselves. At length, however, a subscription for 
the above purposfl has been set a-moving, which, if followed up with 
proper spirit, will at once enable correspondents to address letters 
and parcels to their proper destination, and also enable the visitors = 
(being only temporary residents) to give a direct reference to their 
lodgings, and thus all chance of delay will be removed. And as the 
compiler of the Commercial Directory for Renfrewshire has been 
solicited by a number of the respectable inhabitants of Renfrew- 
SHTRE, Lanarkshire, and Largs, to give in his Directory a list uf 
the principal lodgings, furnished or otherwise, in Largs; this the 
Publisher is assured will add much to the interest of the inhabitants 
generally ; — he has complied with the request to publish the work 
once every two years (although at considerable expense), provided a 
sufficient number of Subscribers are obtained.

A thriving and populous town on the Island of Bute, beautifully 
situated at the head of a fine Bay of the same name. The town of 
Rothesay was erected into a Royal Burgh by King Robert the II. 
who granted the Charter on the 1 2th January, 1400-1. It is go- 
verned by a Provost, two Baillies, twelve Councillors, and a Dean 
of Guild, of which the Marquis of Bute is present Provost. Here, 
also, the Courts of Justice are held ; and a very handsome edifice 
has been newly erected in the castellated style, for that purpose, 
containing an excellent Court Hall, Sheriff, Justice of Peace, and 
Town Clerk's Offices, &c., at the back of the whole is erected a new 
County Jail, the whole of which is to be surmounted by a Tower, 
which, if carried to a proper height, so as to be easily distinguished 
from all parts of the town, (which there is little doubt will be done) 
will have a fine effect, as it is to contain a clock and bell ; both of 
these the town stood greatly in need of — vessels will likewise thus 
be enabled to know the exact time either at entering or leaving 
the harbour. 

The town also contains a great number of well-stocked, neatly fit- 
ted up shops, of every description. A number of excellent Inns, 
with superior accommodation ; also a Coffee and News-room. It 
is likewise provided with an excellent Harbour, with numerous plea- 
sure conveyances both by land and water, to be had at a very mode- 
rate rate. 

Few towns have arisen so rapidly as this, from adverse to pros- 
perous circumstances, greatly owing to its extensive herring trade— . 
for a sea-faring life the people appear greatly to love, although the 
fisherman's life may be accounted one of the most incessant peril 


— for daily bread he must brave daily dangers. In that season whea 
the tiller of the ground rest from his labours — when the art'zan and 
mechanic are warmly housed — when the dormouse and the squirFel 
sleep in their soft woolly nests — and the little birds find shelter ia 
hollow trees and banks, or migrate to milder regions, the poor Fish- 
erman must encounter all the fury of the combined elements, for 
his children's bread is scattered on>the waters. It is thisperpetuuUy 
enforced familiarity with danger that interests our feelings so power- 
fully in their behalf, together with its concomitant effects on their 
character— undaunted hardihood — insurmountable perseverance — al- 
most heroic daring, and, generally speaking, a simplicity of heart and 
tenderness of deportment towards the females and litrle ones of 
their families, finely contrasting their rugged exterior. With tneti 
such as these, no wonder than the herring trade has been carried Eo 
such an estent as it is in this place. 

There are registered at the present time no less than 60 vessels 
from the Custom-house of Rothesay, rating from 15 to 2i!<0 tons- 
burthen, giving in all a total of 3,193 Tons from the town alone, 
besides numerous other vessels registered from other ports, engaged la 
the same trade, belonging to ship-owneis and merchants in the pluce». 

Rothesay has likewise been long celebrated, and justly, for the 
mildness and salubrity of its climate, so much so indeed, as to have ac~. 
quired, on that account, the appellation of the ' Italy of the Norrh.' 
Lundlucked as it is almost on every side, its beautiful bay — and shei- 
tf red as is the town itself by the high range of hills, which, as it were, 
wall it in behind ; the angry tempest se^ks \v. vain to disturb the tran- 
quillity of the favoured spot — -while its insular situation prevents it 
from expeiienciiig those extremes of cold and heat to which the 
rest of the country is subjected, by the changes of the season. Nd 
wonder, then, that merchants and others, retired from the busy, 
tuimjils of a commercial life, are induced to take up their abode in 
its pleasant retreat, where num ers of them have erected handsome 
and splendid seats and villas, and thus once more assisted in bring- 
ing one of the ancient Royal residences of the Kings of Scotland Ja?. 
to view as a place of note. 


Besides all these, another great cause of its growing prosperity, 
is the extensive Cotton Works carried on by Messrs. Thorn and 
Struthers, giving employment to some hundreds of individuals. 
The extent of these works will be better known by the amount of 
mule spindles they conuin, which we can safely state as amounting 
to 22,0C0 at least. The town of Rothesay, in fact, can boast of 
• being the first place in which the art of cutton-spinning was com- 
menced in Scotland. The old mill, a small one-storey house, situ- 
uted in Ladeside street, from a cotton mill was converted into a 
meal mill — fiom that to a weaving shop — next to a dyevvork — and 
IS at the present time occupied by Messrs. Duncan & M'Fie, as an 
ale and porter cellar. The:e is also a pretty extensive power-loom 
fuctory carried on by Mrs David Doig. and ably managed by Mr 
John Robertson, who has the superintendence of the work, which 
aifoids the means of livelihood to many of the females of the place. 

As a sea-bathing quarter, few places on the shores of the Clyde 
can compete wi:h it, being, as was said before, so well sheltered on 
all sides, from the keen blasts of the south-western winds and 
storms. Its lodgings are numerous, containing any extent of ac- 
commodation wanted, beautifully situated on both sides of the bay, 
and the other parts of the town; whilst the numerous pleasure 
conveyances, either by land or water, by which visitors can thus 
easily visit any part of the island, or any place along its shorep, 
iTihke it at once an agreeable retreat either for the invalid or man of 
pleasure. And the numerous steam-boats departing from it to 
Glasgow, calling at the intermediate ports, ensures the man of busi- 
ness, who may be here for a season, an easy return. There are 
likewise two steam packets depart for Glasgow every day. 

But its fine climate and picturesque scenery, although perhaps 
with many the principal, are by no means the only attraction whicli 
Rothesay possesses for the intelligent visitor. The antiquities in 
and around the place, would alone sufllice to invest it with no ordi- 
nary degree of interest. It is well knovvn that Rothesay was, in 
former times, frequently honoured with the presence of royalty ; and 
the massive ruins of its aucjent castle (said to be built about the 

ROTHESAY. 2"21* 

year 1100) still speaks its former grandeur, where af old the mo- 
narchs of Scotland, with its chieftains, were wont to array them- 
selves, and occasionally held their court, or sought a temporary re- 
treat from the toils and anxieties of public affairs, and even frora 
danger. Too much praise, therefore, cannot be given to the present 
Nxjble Marquis, who, with a zeal worthy of his illustrions race, has 
spared no expence to preserve this noble relic of our country's an- 
cient glory from falling into utterdecay. Not like many of those of 
our countrymen who have had &ome such venerable relic of antiquity 
upon their lands, caused them, with ruthless barbarity, to be razed 
to their foiusdation, to erect a pigeon house or dog kennel with the 
materiel. But the time we hope, is not far distant, when the en- 
viable possessors of old edifices, must be taught that good taste, 
their own interest, and national glory, require the conservation of 
these venerable relics of olden time.

Another ancient relic, preserved likewise ffom utter dispoliation by 
the Noble Marquis, is an effigy of one of his long departed ancestors, 
Thomas, or the 'stout Stuart of Rothesay,' (jcontained in the ruins 
of an old Roman Catholic chapel, in Rothesay church-yard) who 
fought so bravely for his country against the invading Norwegians, at 
ihefamous battle of Largs, fought in 1263 ; the figure and heraldic em- 
blazonry around the gothic dome which contains it, are much defaced 
by time, but much more so by barbarous and callous-hearted visitors, 
who mutilate and deface it by attempting to break pieces off, either 
through wanton mischief, or to carry away. Shpuld any lov- 
er of these relicts of olden times chance to visit Rothesay, aiid 
wish information concerning them, he will find those there that 
are more capable to do so, than it can be done in these small 
bounds, as il would swell a volume, to give even a note of eveF>y 
thing worthy of visiting, among the most intelligent of iheee, I may 

T 3 


mention Mr John Heniy, a man who is respected ^y all classes^ in 
the place, and none more worthy of it, and who is intimate with all 
!he localities of the island. 

Notwithstanding all the advances which Rothesay has made in 
the scale of commercial and political importance, she still droops be- 
h nd in many cases. One particular want, a want greatly felt by vi- 
sitors, and even by the generality of the inhabitants themselves, is the 
numbering of the lands, and affixing the names of the streets upon 
the corners, which has already been done in various towns upon the 
Clyde, and found to be of the greatest benefit, as letters and parcels 
can now be forwarded with the utmost dispatch, and without the 
ieast danger of delay, which I am sorry to say, is not the same in 
R.'jthesay. The Publisher of this work set the town the example 
last season, by naming and rumbering one of the streets at his own 
expense, in hopes they would have followed the same, that he there- 
by might have been enabled, in compiling the Directory for the 
place, to have given a direct reference to the different Traders, 
Merchants, Lodging-houses, &c. in it, but as they have not as yet 
followed the example set, he trusts that they will see the utility of 
having it speedily accomplished, and thus place themselves upon a 
level with the other towns and villages.

This well and increasingly frequented bathing place is situated on 
the verge of the Western Highlands of Scotland, and is about eight 
miles distant from Dumbarton, the County Town. It is of very 
recent origin, having been founded about the year 1779, by the late 
Sir James Colquhoun of Luss, Bart., by whom it was named after 
his lady, Lady Helen Sutherland Colquhoun, of the house of Suth- 
erland. Although of so recent a date, it is rapidly on the increase, 
numerous handsome villas and houses being erected in and aronnd 
it every sedson^ which the numerous visitors fiequenting it in the 
baching season render necessary. 

This town was erected into a free Burgh of Barony in favour of 
Sir James Colquhoun of Luss. by Royal Charter, granted 2bth 
July, 1&)2, and is governed ^y a Provost, two Baillies, four Coun- 
dlloi-s. Treasurer, and Dean of Guild. The Magistrates have 
power to make such bye laws as are consistent with the laws of the 
realm, aJid may be conducive to the establishment and preservaiij3n 
ol" good order, and to the advancement and prosperity of the burgh. 
The right of franchise consists in having right, by feu or lease, 
of 100 years, to a house and garden ground within the territory 
of the burgh ; all such are entitled to vote at elections of Magis- 
trates, and to be elected to the office of Biagistrates, or Coun» 
cjllors, but under the following provisions, that no person shall 
be entitled to vote at the elections, or to be chosen Provost of 
B^»i!lies, they havii^g right as aforesaid, who is not a resident bur- 
gess. But (as it would appear from the charter) if lease or feu 
holders build up such garden ground, they lose their right of fran- 
chise. This to many will appear strange, but it is a proviso in the 


eharter, done with the most laudable intention to preserve the town 
according to the plan, to each feu in which there ig a portion of 
garden ground attached, that by this nneans the town may be kept 
free, light, and airy, and clear from that density of building so pre- 
valent in many others. The town is built on a regular plan, ac- 
cording to which every new edifice is or ought to be erected. Few 
towns have a finer appearance, when viewed from the sea, or oppo- 
site shore, than this, were there but a spire to adorn the prospect ; 
and* for the benefit of the inhabitants and those visiting the town, a 
public clock, which the place stands greatly in need of. Here al^ 
IS, or ought to be, held a weekly market upon Thursday, with four 
annual fairs, each of two days' duration, for horse and cattle, and 
every otbar commodity, on any part of the territory of the burgh j 
the first held on ihe second Tuesday of February, the second ugon 
ttie first of June, except when it falls upon Sunday, in which case 
to be held on Monday following; the third upon the sixth of August, 
acid the fourth upon the tvi^elfth of November — -these two last being 
upou the tame conditions as the first. The Slagistrates have also 
full power lo levy toils, customs, and other duties at said fairs and 
weekly market, and to apply the same to the necessary expense 
of maintaining peace and good order during the said markets and 
fairs, otherwise for the good and benefit of the community. 

Such is the beauty of this town, such a union, too, of the agree- 
able and convenient does its situation present, as to render it not 
in the least surprising the resort of company hither in the sea-bath- 
ing season is so great. Readily accessible by land and water — close 
to a fine beach — open to the soft and salubrious marine breeze — 
celebrated for its fresh water springs — sheltered by hill and wood 
from the keen blasts of the north and east — plentifully furnished by 
the pea wuh wholesome, palatable, and nutritious food — at a short 
distance from a complete depot of every necessary, and almost even 
every luxury, of civilized life— in the immediate neighbourhood of 
eharming and varied scenery — of the safe and pleasant ride— of the 
roranntic walk, — what can be wanting to render Helensburgh a most 
atUeciive spot to all who resort to the sea-shore in quest of healthy 


or v^ith a view to seclude themselves for a short period from the 
noise and turbulence of a busy life ? Of the private lodgings all are 
well, and many even elegantly fitted up and furnished. The baths, 
built by the late Mr Henry Bell, engineer, in 1806, of which there 
are both hot and cold, with every necessary convenience, are in a 
handsome and commodious building, situated in East Clyde Street, 
and at present possessed by Mrs Henry Bell. To the baths is at- 
tached an Inn, with superior accommodation. The town has also 
another Inn, with great extent of accommodation. The place has 
also a Reading or News Room, neatly fitted up, terms moderate j 
and a Post Office, from which the arrival and departure of Mails to 
Glasgow take place twice daily. It is also well supplied with shops 
of every description. What they do not afford can be easily pro- 
cured from Greenock (a town provided with every necessary, every 
convenience, and almost every luxury of life) by the steam^boats, 
which call nearly every hour in going to Roseneath or Garelochead. 
A small harbour for steam, coasting, and pleasure vsssels, is an agree- 
able appendage to the place. There are also two places of worship 
in the town, one for the original Burghers, the other Congregational 
Independents, — the Parish Church at Row, between two and three 
miles distant, Helensburgh is twenty-three miles N. W. of Glas- 
gow, five N.E, of Greenock, and nineteen N. W. of Paisley,— 
places^these, whence, and from their vicinities, most of the summer 
company at Helensburgh will as yet be found to come. 

The first Steam boat trip made in Britain was from Port-Glas- 
gow to Helensburgh in the year 1812 by the Comet, Mr William 
M'Kenzie, master. The Comet was the first Steam- vessel, brought 
to utility, or to be of general use built in Britain, by the late Mr 
Henry Bell, architect, mill-wright, and engineer, Helensburgh, to 
whom the town is greatly indebted for the many improvements ha 
made in it, whilst he was Provost of the Burgh. 

Mr Henry Bell was born 7th April, 1767, at Torphichen mill, 
in the parish of same name, Linlithgowshire, Scotland, and departed 
this life llth November 1830, at the Baths, Helensburgh. The 
mortal remains of this illustrious individual are interred in Row 


Church-yard, Dumbartonshire, where, on my lately visiting the spot 
(August 1834) how was I surprised, nay, will it be believed? — that 
not a single mark of respect has been erected to the memory of 
the illustrious dead, to tell the stranger where his remains are 
deposited ! ! Not in this manner did he treat worth and merit, 
as evidence of which the same church-yard contains a con- 
firmation of it ; a large metal tablet 6 feet 8^ inches in length ; 
3 feet 7 inches in breadth ; and 5| inches thick ; supported by 
six pillasters of 2 feet in height ; the tablet contains the fol- 
lowing inscription: — " To the Memory of Captain Rolebt 
Baint, born May 1788, departed this life at Fort William, 
December 1827 — aged 39 years. — C. R. Bain, was appointed by 
H. Bell to the command of the Comet Steam-boat in 1814<, by 
which vessel a communication was opened up between the Western 
Islands of Scotland and Glasgow, through the Crinan canal in July 
1819. He was the first Captain who commanded a vessel from sea to 
sea, through the great Caledonian canal, in 1822. This was erected as 
a tribute of honour for 16 years, faithful service, by Henry Bell, en- 
gineer, Helensburgh." — His widow, Mrs. Bell, uould ere this have 
erected a tribute of respect to his memory, had she not (which I can 
positivelystate)been given to understand that certain individuals wish- 
ed to have the honour of doing so ; but shame to our country, shame 
to our merchants and mechanics, for whom he has done so much; 
it will remain for ever an indelible mark of disgrace ; the finger of 
scorn will be pointed at them, and they themselves held up to deri- 
sion, if they allow any longer the remains of this illustrious individual 
to remain unhonoured. The fortunate, the wealthy, and the titled 
dunces too frequently get buried beneath a splendid monument ; and 
a false table of virtues is emblazoned thereon. The sculpture is 
called in to display the resources of his art in decking their tomb- 
stone, while the wisest and the best of men, are too often left to rua 
down the stream, forgotten or uncared for ; and the humble artizan 
is left to tell on that of the other, that he was " born on one day, 
and that he died upon the next." With what feelings of inwrought 
emotion does the traveller tread the ground where the bard of Man- 


tua drew his infant breath ? — and how intensely do we listen to the 
stories of Alexander, of Csesar, of Pompey, and of Seipio; and ej^ the 
footsteps of ** Macedonia's noadman," and the hair-brained Swede ' 
These have taken up many a precious hour of our time. But after 
hll, what have these men done for the real welfare of mankind ? 
They have sung of gods and godesses — of bloody fields— -of smok- 
ing cities and desolated homes ; they have '* marched unmoved 
amidst the agonies of slaughtered thousands" — the victims of "am- 
bitious madness,*' and they still pass for heroes, by those who think 
it more glorious to ktU than to save mankind f But let us turn 
our thoughts to a man of another mould — to that illustrious indivi- 
dual whose aim was the philosophy of utility, and whose actions 
were those of patriotism and humanity.— To a man whose me- 
chanical inventions and improvements have given a new and 
nobler tone to society—opened up new channels of national hap- 
piness and universal benefits. To contemplate the life of such a 
man, tends to expand the understanding and purify the soul ; 
tends to link man with his fellow-men, and to exalt his con. 
templations towards the Divine source of all wisdom and good- 
ness \ and that man to whom we owe " floating bridges" upon 
the ocean, is well worthy to be ranked amongst the highest benefac- 
tors of his race, and has claims on his countrymen, which ought to 
be met with a liberal hand from that world in which his name will 
be perpetuated through the ages to come, where his " floating 
bridges" and magnificent palaces, which, " over the mountain 
waves," and amid the roaring tempests, march "like giants rejoicing 
in their course," will bear testimony to his merits on "rivers yet un- 
known to song," through lands yet uncheered by the voice of liber* 
ty; through climes yet unvisited by the mild beams of Christianity,

they will erect a seminary, for the literary moraU and religious

for the Horses ; and Messrs. M'Farlan, sen. and jun. Faslane, and 
Mr. M'Farlan, Lettermay, for the West Hghland Stock and Sheep, 
who immediately commenced their examinations. Mr. Lochead,

took, at the special request of the Committee, the office of examin-

it must be satisfactory to the district to learn, that the intelli- 
pent judges were sensible of growing improvement in the animals 
shown, particularly in the young, both male and female, of the Dairy 
Stock, and in the Mate Sheep — of this latter class, the judges de- 
clared they never saw better Tups ; and there was so near a parity 
of excellence among them, that they had considerable difficulty in 
determining the order of preference. The pair of Highland Oxen 
shown was remarked as being very fine j also, the Mares that gain- •

Calculated hy Mr. Malcou Lyon, Teacher of Navigation, Sfc.

Tides are the daily rising and filling of the waters of the Ocean, 
and are produced by the attraction of the sun and moon, but chiefly 
by the attraction of the moon, which varies in the inverse proportion 
of the square of its distance from the ob_,ect it attracts. 

The tide on the side next the moon, or that which happens whe« 
the moon is above the horizon, is called the superior, and the other 
the inferor tide ; but it is only in the ocean and large seas that there is 
sufficient water to admit the ei3Pect even in iluids to be distinctly ob- 

286 Gremoch Clyde Tide Tahk. 

In the interval betvreen the two successive transits of the moon, 
»he produces two tides, and the sun, in every twenty-four hours, pro- 
duces- two tides also. The tides produced by the sun and moon, 
coincide at the times of full and new moon,, and the consequence is, 
tlie tides at those times are higher. 

At the quarter of the moon, the effect of the solar is to diminish 
tlie lunar tide, and at tliose times, we find the tides are below the 
average height. 

The tides at full and> change are called spring tides, and those at 
the quarters, neap tides, but the highest and lowest tides are general- 
ly about the third tide after the full, and change, and the quarters. 

When tiie moon is nearest the eartby-the tides, of course, are greater 
than usual, and when the full or change of the moon happens about 
thQ beginning of January, when the sun also is nearest the earth, the 
tides are the greatest of all. 

Tiie times of high water at, any individual place, are greatly influ- 
a>ced by its local situation, but there is, at every- place, a mean re- 
lation betv'Teen the time of high water and that of the moon pas^ing 
the meridian, which relation is subject to periodical variations, depend- 
ing on the distances and relative positions of the sun and moon. 

The time of high water is materially affected by the wind ; for it 
is found, that gales of vi^ind from the south, south-west, or south- 
east, will compel the waters to continue longer about the neighbour- 
hood of Greenock, altltough the waters in some cases may not rise,^ 
an observer wiii not perceive any fall of water fbr an- half hour, or 
three-fourths of an hour, after the estimated time. 

Likewise strong north, nortli-east, or north- west" winds prevent the 
waters from obtaining even the height tliat we might expect^ and to 
retire sooner. 

But persons wishing to take adv«.ntage of the tide, will Bnd it con- 
venient to consider the state of the weather before, and at the present 
tiine — Ijy doing so, they, will ;save some time. 

As the Tides are calculated for Greenock, no explanation is requi- 

site.forthe neighbouring places, such as Helensburgli, Gourock, and 

Riifiaeath wljich will ha\'e high water about fh.2 same time : bu? f )r 

Larg.Sj Ilothesay, and Millport,. it will be necessary to subtract fifteen 

• minutes, as these places receive tlie flood first.
