Governor Cass arrived in this city last Saturday morning, in the Steam Boat Pioneer, on his return from Prairie du Chien, having been absent nearly four months.


White-Fish--This delicious fish usually appears in our market about the 10th of this month, when it is sold at eight or ten times its current value. The first are usually speared by the Indians about the islands near Lake erie, where a few of them are found hovering on the sand banks, apparently undetermined whether to proceed or retreat. These are probably the avant coureurs of the immense shoals which shortly after enter the strait, on their way to the western and northern Lakes. In consequence of the warmth of the weather, the annual migration of the white-fish will be probably later than usual the present season.
