A CIRCULAR has been issued by the Hon. Local Secretaries of the Belfast meeting of the British Association, calling attention to the numerous objects of interest, natural and mechanical, with which the town and neighbourhood of Belfast, as well as the county of Antrim, abounds. The whole Province of Ulster is full of objects of the highest interest to the admirer of natural scenery, to the geologist, the naturalist, and the antiquarian; and many of its most interesting localities, such as the Antrim Coast, the Giant's Causeway, the Mourne Mountains, Lough Neagh, the Round Towers of Antrim and Drumbo, are within an easy distance of Belfast. The local secretaries state that a large number of the hotels will be open to members of the Association at the usual charges, and that a list of persons willing to let rooms has been prepared. We sincerely hope that this time there will be no complaint to make on the score of accommodation. Conveyance to Belfast can be obtained from any part of the country at very reasonable rates.
