Tib, (the Rivulet) a small stream, of which the learned and Reverend John Whittaker, the author of the "History of Manchester," has made the most, by giving it high consequence to the safety of the Roman summer camp, founded on the scite of the Collegiate Church of Manchester, and the College on the north of it. The Tib appears to have been a small stream, which took its rise from the neighbourhood of what is now called Great Newton-street, Manchester, and fell into the Medlock, near Knott-mill. In the time of the Romans, the course was diverted, to furnish water for a Foss, and the stream ran down Shude-hill and Hanging ditch, under Hanging-bridge, of which one arch still remains. Nearly all traces of the river is now lost, the reservoir of Shude-hill having swallowed up all the water which a multiplicity of Pumps, that have robbed the parent springs, have left. Its banks are now covered up, and the course converted into a common sewer for many streets in Manchester, which have been built since Mr. Whitaker published his history

ULVERSTON, (N. lat. 54. 9". W. lon. 2. 59".) the largest town in the district of Furness, 4 miles N.E. of Dalton; 131/2 miles W. of Cartmel; 261/2 miles N.W. of Lancaster; and 226 miles from London. Ulverston is a sea port, and market town, situated near the Leven, to which it has a canal, (which was cut in 1795) of about 11/2 mile long, which is navigable for vessels of 400 tons; being 65 feet wide at the top, and 30 feet at the bottom, and a lock to let down the canal to the tide way, 112 feet long, in order to contain a large vessel. The principal trade is in pig and bar iron, and iron ore; blue slate and limestone; oats, barley and beans. The manufactures are canvas, hats, check and cotton. Edward the First granted Ulverston a charter in the eighth year of his reign, for a market and fair; but the contiguity of Dalton to the Monks of Furness, whose influence was decidedly in favor of Dalton, prevented any advantages arising from it. But after the dissolution of that celebrated monastry, Ulverston rose into consequence. Within the last fifty years, the town has much improved its appearance; the streets are clean and spacious, and the houses well built; in 1801, they were 629, and contained 2,937 inhabitants. Ulverston is a parish in the deanry of Furness and Cartmel; the living is a perpetual curacy; patron, W. Bradyll, Esq. The church is a neat structure, almost wholly re-built in 1804, and contains three aisles, and has a square tower. It stands in a field at a small distance from the town, and forms a pleasing point of sight from Lancaster. The market day at Ulverston, is Monday, and the fairs are held on Holy Thursday, and on the Thursday after October 23d, for cattle, horses, &c. The old fair, granted by Edward First, in the second week of September, has long ago fallen into neglect.
