Belfast, A large town and sea port of increasing importance in the county of Antrim, in Ulster, seated on Carrickfergus Bay, at the mouth of Lagan River, with a stately bridge over it of 21 arches; which, including the dead work at each end, is 2,563 feet long. A navigable canal, connecting the harbour with Lough Neagh, was completed in 1793. In 1798, this town contained 4,000 houses, and about 20,000 souls. Here are considerable manufacturers of cotton, cambric, sail cloth, and linen, with others of glass, sugar, earthenware, a large export of provisions, etc. It is 9 miles S.W. of Carrickfergus and 120 from Dublin.
