The very extensive distillery now being erected at Bel- fast, with all recent improvements for the manufacture of Irish whisky, by Messrs DUITVILLK & Co., who have gained a world-wide celebrity for their fine old Irish whisky, is to be called The Royal Irish Distillery." LIFEBOAT SmvicBs.-During the year just past, 74 lives have been rescued by the lifeboats of the Lifeboat Institution, in addition to 28 vessels saved from destruc- tion. During the same period the Lifeboat Institution granted rewards for saving 360 lives by fishing and other boats, making a grand total of 1,105 lives saved mainly through its instrumentality. Many of these services have been rendered on the Welsh coast. These noble services of the lifeboats have varied much in character: many have been during the dark hours of night, others have been by day; some have been at short distances from the shore, others on the outlying banks far from the land. In some cases greater danger has been incurred than in others. In some, men have been washed overboard from the boats, but recovered again. Indeed, the work of sav- ing shipwrecked persons, even in the best appointed life- boats, must ever De one of danger, and no little courage and hardihood are required on the part of those who en- gage in it. By giving their invaluable aid they perform their full share of the duty of alleviating and reducing the amount of the misery and evil produced by the storms on our ooasts, It remains for those who cannot share the risks and exposure which these brave men incur, to per- form their part in this humane work, by enabling the institution, which has undertaken to organize and super- intend it-to provide the lifeboats' crews with every means of safety and efficiency, and to remunerate them suffi- ciently-this serving as some encouragement to them in return for the risks and labour and exposure which they undergo. The National Lifeboat Institution accordingly appeals to all humane and generous persons in the United Kingdom to contribute from their abundance towards so good a cause. We may add, that contributions in aid of the great and important work of the National Lifeboat Institution are received by all the bankers throughout the United Kingdom, and by the secretary at the institution, 14, John-street, Adelphi, London.
