ECCLESIASTICAL DIVISIONS. Provinces are the grand divisions. There are two of these, that of CanTERBURY and that of York, cach of which has its ARCHBISHOP. Then these Provinces are divided into DIOCESES, each of which has its Bishop. There are twenty-sir dioceses, each of which takes the name of the City which is situated within the diocese. Of these twenty-six dioceses, or bishoprics, the two archbishops have one each. They are bishops as well as archbishops ; one of them having the bishopric of Canterbury, and the other having the bishopric of York. So that there are but twenty-six archbishops and bishops in the whole. The dioceses are divided into BENEFICES, which generally consist of one Parish each ; but sometimes of two or more, which, since the PROTESTANT REFORMATION, have been “ unitedby acts of the parliament. There are, besides these divisions, “ archdeaconries” and rural deaneries ; ” but though they serve as a pretext for drawing immense sums of money out of the pockets of the people, they are of so little practical use, that people in general do not know, and never have heard, that there are any such institutions in existence; and as to the Deans and Chapters, with all their Prebendaries, Canons, &c. the people know not the meaning of the words, and only know that the persons bearing the names wallow in wealth, derived from tithes and other public property, and render no sort of service in return,

With regard to the revenues of the Church, and to the distribution of these revenues amongst the different classes of the Clergy and Lay Impropriations, that is a subject foreign to this work, which professes to treat only of the several territorial divisions and subdivisions of the country ; b:at the reader will find, in Table No. I, an account of the number of parishes in each county, in which parishes the clergy have suffered the churches to fall down, and also an account of the number of parishes in which they have suffered the parsonage-houses to fall down, or to become unfit to live in.

'The THREE FOLLOWING TABLES exhibit the above-mentioned divisions in the clearest and most satisfactory manner. The FIRST shows what Dioceses belong to each of the two Provinces (the Dioceses being ranged in alphabetical order), and also shows what Counties (or parts of counties) belong to each Diocese. The sECOND contains an alphabetical list of all the Counties, and shows what diocese each county is in ; or, in cases where the County is distributed between two or more Dioceses, it shows what that distribution is. The THIRD contains an alphabetical list of all the Dioceses, and shows how many Benefices and how many Churches and Chapels there are in each Diocese.
