p.2 Timber Sinking - A large quantity of ships' knees and squared timber has been brought in by railroad for E. Berry, Portsmouth, and thrown on the ice off the track opposite the Market Battery. The weight of the timber, which is green, and consequently very heavy, is bearing down the ice, a large space of which is broken off and sunk, taking the timber with it, unless a severe frost sets in. As it is, the ice has already sunk in some places from one to two feet from the immense pressure.
