fjKilmore. G E N E R A L O B S E R V A TIO N S : - Containing ANS W E R S to fuch QUERIES as relate to Matters of Opinion; all th? other Queries being aijfwercd in the Columns. Q. iery.— BY what mode nay the condition of fuch Livings, as areof a value too fin all to afford to refid.- nt Incumbents the means cf comfort be improved ? Anfvver.— The Board of Fir!} Fruits can augment fuch Livings, by pcrchafing Glebes and impropriate Tythes out of the produce of the Firft Fruits and Twentieth Parts granted fcr that purpofe by Queen Anne, and bv aiflilting the Incumbents of them with money for the ere& ion of Glebe Houfes ; but this Fund is Anal), and unequal to the effectual augmentation of fuch Livings. There is another Fund, ariiing from a charitable bequeit of Doftor Boulter, Primate of all Ireland, and vefted ia the Board of Firft Fruits by Aft of Parliament; out of which Fitr. d the Beard of Firit Fruits is enabled to augment Livings under the value of One hundred Pounds a ) ear, by adding fo much falary, yearly, to the Incumbents cf fucii Livings, as will make their annual Incomes Ore hundred Pounds. There is at prefent no other mode of improving fuch fmall Livings; but thefe Funds may be ir. creafed by the bounty of the King in Parliament, fo as to render fuch fmall Livings capable cf affording to the refident Incumbents thereof the means of comfort, in cafes where the Funds, already mentioned, are infuflicient. Q^ ery.— WHAT arc the powers, which now cx'ft, of enforcing Refidence, or which it may be neceffary to recommend to the Legiflature to provide fcr that purpofe"? Anfwer.— It was apprehended by the Bi'. hops of Ireland, that the preferit Canon Law, 39 hitherto exercifed here, was fufricient to remedy the evil cf Non- refidtnce; but at prefent, the execution of the Canon Law, in cafes of Non- refidence, has been obltructed by Appeals, and is attended with a very heavy expence and great delay ; but a cafe now depending before certain Commiflioners cf Review, appointed by llis Majefty, which, if it fhall be decided in favour of the Eccle- fiaflirr. l Authority exercifed in that cafe, I hope will eitablifh f « ch a precedent in the cafe of Non- refidence, as will fuperf.- de the neceflity of recommending to the Legiflaiure to make any other provifion for the purpofe of enforcing Refider. ce in Ireland; but, if the decifion fhould be otherwife, it may then become advifable to apply to the Legiflature to er. ait foinc Law for enforcing the Refidence of the Clergy ir. Ireland. Query.-— WHAT is the beft mode of applying fuch Funds as are now applicable, or hereafter may become fo, to the purpofe of building or repairing cf Churchy, or Glebe Houfes, or the improvement of Glebes, or otherwife? Anfwer.— I apprehend that the Laws now in being eflablifh a good mode of applying fuch Funds as are now applicable to the purpofe of building Churches or Glebe Houfes, or the improvement of Glebes; but I apprehend, if the Parifhes had a power at a Veftry of laying on an Afleffment for a certain number of years, and borrowing money 011 that AfTefT- raer. t, to be repaid by inftalments, it would tend much to expedite the Repairs cr building of Churches. • • Query.— WHAT Regulations appear to be proper to be eftablifhed by Law, or otherwife, to prevent Unions, perpetual tor Epifcopalj from bcin; henceforth improperly made, and to prefcrve Churches and Glebe Houfes from dilapidation, when there are more than ore in the United Pariflies? Anfwer.— The Laws now in being I apprehend fully fufiicient to prevent Unions, perpetual or F. pifcopal, from " being imprcp; r.' y made, and to prevent Churches and Glebe Houfes from dilapidations, when duly enforced. Qviery.— WHAT can be fuggefted, in addition to the foregoing, for the improvement,. p: ote£ tion,- ar, d. fupport of the Church of Ireland ? Aniwer.— I am of opinion that the due execution of the now exifling Laws, w ith the fin All alteration which I have taken the liberty to fuggeft ( if found neceflary on the contingency already mentioned) and fuch Grants as His Mijefty aiid Parliament may in their bounty make, for augmenting the Incomcs of poor Livings, purchafing- Glebes, and afTilting the building of Churches and Glebe Houfes, will be fuficient for the ; pr& fetu improvement,. protection, and fupport of the Eflablifned Church in Ireland. — No. 5.— DIOCESE OF MEATH.
