The Mullet Fisheries. - We now see wheel-barrow loads of this slimy, slipper, suckery animal carted through our streets. The fisheries have commenced in earnest, and the banks of the Oswego River are bristling with the deadly barbs which go bobbing through its now rapid and excited waters gobbling up thousands of those maternal visitors, who come with the season to leave us large measures of incipient mullet.

We have never eaten any, and don't think we shall; the look of the "critter" is enough for us, and however much may be said in praise of "mullet and milk," we feel we shall not be able to participate. We think we should rather prefer a piece of snake.
