LAKE TRADE WITH EUROPE
The failure which attended the attempt of the "MADERIA PET" and the "J. KERSHAW," to open up a profitable trade between our upper lakes and Liverpool, has not deterred others from making another trial. At this moment the ALLIANCE is loading at Toronto with a cargo for Halifax direct. She takes out wheat, and is to bring back a cargo of flour. She is about 250 tons register.
Another vessel, the INDIAN QUEEN, is getting ready for a voyage to Liverpool, with the design of being sold there. She was built last spring at Collingwood, and is about 420 tons register.
It is also expected that four or five vessels will leave Chicago this spring for Liverpool. It is said that Messrs. Martin & Son, of Belvedere, are forwarding 800 barrels of flour for this route.
