METROPOLIS OF BRITISH WATERING-PUCES.
HARROGATE is situated in Yorkshire, within six hours of London, a short distance from York and the far-famed Fountains' Abbey, about equi-distnnt between the Northern Ocean and the Irish Channel. Its position on a table-land—a great height above the level of the sea—and its dry, sandy, highly-drained soil, combine to render it a peculiarly healthy and bracing residence. It is on account of the benefits which are to be gained from its different celebrated MINERAL SPRINGS and BATHS that Harrogate is chiefly frequented. These springs are many in point of number: as regards their properties and effects, they are no less various. They may, however, be subdivided into five great classes:—
I. The strong Sulphureous n. The mild Sulphureous.
III. The pure Saline.
IV. The pure Chalybeate.
The two first classes are valuable, not only in Cutaneous, but also in various Dyspeptic Complaints, in derangements of the Liver, in Gout and Rheumatism, and in some particular cases of Female Disease. In fact, as many or most Cutaneous diseases depend more or less upon one or another of these diseases above named, the cure of the former (the effect) is more or less consequent upon the removal of those diseases which are the cause.
There are many cases where the third class above mentioned (the pure Saline springs) are highly useful.
It would be out of place in this notice to enumerate the numerous derangements of the system which are benefited by the fourth and fifth classes, viz.—the pnre Chalybeate and the Saline Chalybeate. Suffice it to say that the Chalybeate springs are much stronger tlian most of a similar kind in this country; while the Saline Chalybeate springs are unique in Great Britain, and in point of analysis, as well as in their physiological and therapeutic effects, are closely analogous to the famous Ragozzl spring at Kissingcn.
A case may now be seen at the Exhibition of all Nations, containing specimens of some of the principal Waters, with their respective analyses.
It only remains to be added that the accommodation for visitors, both at the hotels and lodging-houses, is of a firstrate description. [i 133

THE ISLE OF MAN,
SITUATED in the centre of the United Kingdom (within six hours' sail by steam from Liverpool, five from Fleetwood, seven from Dublin, and twelve from Glasgow), though comparatively so little known as such, is, in most respects,
UNEQUALLED AS A WATERING-PLACE and Residence. It is exempt from taxation. Its waters are pellucid—Bea-bathing unrivalled—scenery magnificent —climate equable and salubrious—Collegiate and Scholastic Establishments excellent— the luxuries and necessaries of life attainable at moderate prices. The Island is well provided with first-rate Hotels and Lodging-houses, excellent Roads, cheap Conveyances, &c.; whilst there are no Turnpikes or Toll-bars to fret the temper of the Traveller on land, nor Harbour Dues to discourage the Yacht man. To the Capitalist, the Annuitant, and the Valetudinarian a more agreeable, healthful Residence can scarcely be found in Her Majesty's dominions than in this Island. First-class Steamers, carrying Her Majesty's Mails, and commanded by able officers, leave Prince's Pier-head, Liverpool, every morning (Sundays excepted) at eleven o'clock during the summer months; and from Fleetwood, Dublin, and Glasgow, weekly.

TO FOREIGNERS AND OTHERS VISITING THE EXHIBITION.
rpHIS HOTEL is situated in the most fashionable -*- part of the town (in the immediate vicinity of the Spas), and is one of the largest in England, having nearly 100 Bed-rooms, with Sitting Apartments fitted up in a style combining comfort with elegance; and from the retired situation of the Hotel there is no annoyance to visitors from the continual rattle of carriages, &c.; it is therefore admirably adapted for invalids.
It has now been determined to reduce the scale of charges as follows, in order to obtain an extensive patronage from the public:—

There ate few places in the Kingdom which present greater attractions to those in pursnit of health or recreation thaa the Town of GREAT YARMOUTH. This ancient Seaport is placed at the extreme Eastern point of the English Coast, »ud has long been celebrated for the great purity and bracing quality of the air, which acts as a powerful yet wholesome stimulant to the human frame, whether worn down by care, anxiety, or disease. It has therefore been strongly recommended by the most eminent of the faculty, especially in cases of debility or of paralytic complaints. SEA-BATHING can here be enjoyed in perfection. The Sands are firm and shelving, free from rock and mud, perfectly safe for children, and are the best adapted of any around Great Britain for walking and riding. Great Yarmouth has now become a Bathingplace of great resort; and numerous HOTELS and LODGING-HOUSES, commanding Marine Views of considerable extent and beauty, have been erected, affording suitable accommodation to Families of Rank, as well as for all classes of Visitors, at reasonable charges. The Sea View is unrivalled, and presents an ever-changing Panorama, the charms of which it is impossible to exaggerate, as the number of Vessels which pass through Yarmouth Roads Close Inshore is greater than on any other port of the Coast, or perhaps of the world; and during the Mackerel Fishery, from April to July, and the Herring Fishery, from September to December, this part of the Coast has a very animated appearance, and the labours of the Fishermen are a constant source of amusement and interest to Visitors; whilst for Marine Excursions, Yawls of a very superior build, combining swiftness with safety, are in constant readiness, and every facility for Boating is afforded by the Rivers Yare, Waveney, and Bure.
The Market is abundantly supplied with Meat, Fish, Poultry, and Game at moderate prices; and Yarmouth is celebrated for its Ale.
The old town of Great Yarmouth is of considerable antiquity, is built on a plan unseen in any other part of the Kingdom, and presents many peculiar features.
The principal objects ol interest and amusement in the town and neighbourhood are the Parish Church of St. Nicholas, a magnificent strucrtu-e of the thirteenth century (where there is a daily service); St. Peter's Church, St. George's Chapel, a Roman Catholic Church, and other places of religious worship; the Column erected to the memory of Lord Nelson; the Jetty extending into the sea, and affording a delightful promenade; the Victoria Esplanade and Britannia Terrace, facing the ocean; the Denes (or Downs) and Kace-course, with ample space for equestrian exercise j the Quay, of unequalled extent and beauty: the Royal Military Lunatic Asylum; the Theatre; the Bath and Reading Rooms; Public Library; Gorleston Cliffs and Piers; the Roman Camp, called Garianonum, at Burgh Castle; the ruinB of the castellated mansion of Sir John Fastolfe, K.G., at Caister: many curious and highly interesting Churches in the adjoining parishes, some of them with the round towers peculiar to the district; whilst the ancient City of NORWICH, with its Castle, Cathedral, and numerous Churches, is within half an hour's distance by railway.
A Marine Regatta will take place in July, and the annual Races on the 9th and 10th September.
There is n direct Railway and Telegraphic Communication to all the most important towns in the kingdom. Trains leave by the Eastern Counties Railway at Shoreditch, and Steamers leave London Bridge every Wednesday and Saturday (fares—first cabin, 8j. ; second, 5«.). The Hull, Newcastle, Leith, Aberdeen, and Inverness Steamers pass weekly through Yarmouth Roads.

in Woollen Cloths.
CHICORY, or " CICIIORIl'M," a tap-rooted plant of the Endive family, the root of which is largely used as a substitute for Coffee.
From its medicinal qualities, it is considered a valuable admixture to Coffee, as it counteracts the astringent effects thereof.
It can also be sold at a much lower price, and, being of home produce, is recommended to the public, in connexion with Coffee, as a wholesome and nutritious beverage, the consumption of which is now becoming very general. Though formerly believed to be a prejudicial admixture with Coff.ee, it is now positively proved to be quite the contrary.;
The leaves of this plant are also applicable to the manufacture of a valuable Dye-Stuff called " Pastel," or "imitaTion Wood," of which they form a principal ingredient.
This article is very largely used by Wool Dyers, and is a valuable agent in the Dye Vat, for fastening colours in cloths.
The application of this plant to the above joint purposes is of recent date in Ireland. The first of the above-mentioned articles produced from this plant were manufactured and introduced into the English market with success by Mr. Paul King Bracken, from his manufactory in the neighbourhood of Dublin.
The samples now exhibited were grown and manufactured by Arthur Hill Griffith, Esq., Gortmore, Ballymore, County Wcstmeatli, under Mr. Bracken's directions.
Mr. Griffith has established a Factory for the combined produce of Chu'orv and Woap, which is promising to be very successful, and gives very considerable employment to the poorer classes in the vicinity.
As an Ajricultural Crop, and one suited to the soil and climate of Ireland, together with the large quantity of labour required for the bringing of these articles to perfection, this plant is considered of great national importance.
In an economic view, the advantages can be ascertained by a comparison of the respective prices of those articles with the present prices of Coffee and Woad, neither of which can be produced at double the remunerative prices of Chicory or Imitation Woad, both of which substitutes are in most respects quite as efficient, and some superior to, their originals.
