White Fish--In the beginning of last week the Fishermen on Grosse Isle commenced taking White Fish, and have thus far been very fortunate--at some grounds twenty-five and thirty thousand have been caught in a day, and every body along the strait anticipates a profitable season. Yet notwithstanding the vast quantities taken in the immediate vicinity of our city, we have to regret their scarcity in our market house--they have not, we believe, made their appearance there but once or twice this season, and we are half inclined to believe that the [but]chers have bribed the fishermen to keep their fish from the stalls, well knowing that beef and pork would find a slow sale when put in competition with a basket of fat and fresh white fish.


A quick trip.--On Wednesday, the 20th inst. the Steam Boat Superior left this port for Buffalo, at 4 o'clock P.M. she stopped on her passage down at Sandusky and Cleaveland, and arrived at Buffalo on Friday morning, on which day she discharged her cargo and took in another; and on Saturday morning she sailed again for this port. She stopped at Erie on her passage up and arrived here last Monday morning at 7[?] o'clock.
