IC4. CCLESI AiTICAL ? C R T S. I N I O O ' GENE IIA L O C S E RV ATIONS : Containing ANSWERS to QUER. IE3 the ift, Seftion 6th; Queries the 3d, 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8; h; all the other Queries bcir. g anfwered in the Column;. Query lft, Seftion 6th.—' THERE is by Aft of Parliament a fufficient power lodged in the Lord Lieutenant and Privy Council, and the Bilhopscf the feveral Diocefes in Ireland, either to unite or difunite Parifhes, when either may be deemed advifable; and the Arc'nbifhop and Bifhops are enabled, by Aft of Parliament, to form a Diftrift ( part of a large Pariih) into a feparate Parifh, under the title cf a Perpetual Curacy, by which means feveral large Parifr. es in Ireland have been aftua'. ly divided into two or more feparate and diftinft Parifhes. Query 3d.— THE Board of Firft Fruits can augment fuch Livings, by purchafing Glebes and Impropriate Tythes eut ofthe Prcduce of the Firft Fruits and twentieth parts granted for that purpofe by Queen Anne, and by affiiting the Incumbents of them with Money, for the erection of Glebe Houfes; but this fund is fmal!, and unequal to the effeftual augmentations cf fuch Livings. There is alfo another Fund, ariling from a charitable bequeft of the late Dr. Boulter, Primate of Ireland, and veiled in the Board of Firft Fruits by Aft of Parliament, out of which Fund the Board of Firft Fruits is enabled to augment Livings under One hundred Pounds by the year, by adding fo much Salary yearly to the Incumbents of fuch Livings as will make their annual incomes One hundred Pounds. There is at prefent no other mode of improving fuch fmall Livings; but thefe Funds may be increafed by the bounty of the Kir. g in Parliament, fo as to render fuch fmall Livings capable of affording to the refident Incumbents thereof the means cf comfort, in cafes where the Funds already mentioned are infufticient. N° V.— IT is apprehended by the Bifhops of Ireland, that the prefent Canon Law, as hitherto exercifed here, is fuf- ficient to remedy the, evil of Non- refidence ; but at prefent, the execution of the Canon Law in cafes of Non- refi- dence, has been obftrufted by Appeals; and there is a cafe now depending before certain Comir. iSloners of Review, appointed by His Majefty, which, if it fhail be decided in favour of the Ecclefiaftical Authority exercifed in that cafe, will eftablifh fuch a precedent ia the cafe of Non- refidenee, as will fuperfede the neceility of recommending to the Legislature to make any other proviiion for the purpofe of enforcing Refider. ce in Ireland; but, if the decifion in that cafe fhould be otherwife, it may then become advifable to apply to the Legiflature to enact fome Law for enforcing the R- efidence cf the Clergy in Ireland. N° VI.— VVE apprehend, that the Laws already in being eftablifh the be ft mode of applying fuch Funds as are now applicable to the purpofe of building or repairing Churches or Glebe Houfes, cr the improvement of Glebes. VII.— THE Laws now in being arc, we apprehend, fuflicient to prevent Unions, perpetual or Epifccpal, from being improperly made, and to preferve Churches and Glebe Houfes from dilapidations, when duly enforced. N° VIII.— VVE are of opinion that the due execution of the now exifting Laws, with the fmal! alteration which we have fuggefted ( if found nece. Tary on the contingency already mentioned) and fuch grants as His Majefty and the Parliament may in their bounty make for augmenting the Incomes of poor Livings, purchafing Glebes, and aflifting the building of Churches and Glebe Houfes, will be fufneient for the prefent improvement, protection, and fupport of the Lftabiiihcd Church in Ireland. — No. 2. — DIOCESE OF KILDARE.
