p.2 The demand for ice to supply western cities is so great that nearly all the available vessels at Kingston, Ogdensburg and of other ports have already been engaged to supply the demand. Belleville is to take part in this new trade, which promises to be in the future an important branch of commerce, as well as profitable. The schooner Union Jack, of Belleville, commenced today loading 450 tons of ice for Chicago. The ice is unusually clear, and varies from 20 to 30 inches in thickness. [Belleville Intelligencer]
