Lake Superior Fishery.--We have frequently alluded to one of the great resources of Michigan--its Fisheries; and have sometimes charged our fellow-citizens with a want of attention to this important branch of industry. We have now the pleasure of stating that fishing, on a pretty extensive scale, has lately been commenced in Lake Superior, and that the individuals engaged in it have been so far very successful--one of them having already caught two hundred barrels.
Query--could not the making of Oil, from the Sturgeon, which are found in such immense numbers about Saginaw Bay, be made a profitable business?
