Spring Fishing.--We learn that about 2000 barrels of fish have been put up this season on the Maumee River. We have no means of ascertaining the quantity taken in the Strait of Detroit. At the fishery of H. Connor, Esq. on Presque Isle, 130 barrels have been salted. The aggregate must be very considerable. The fish taken are principally pickerel, with some trout, bass, maskenanjai, &c. They are worth, on an average, about four dollars per barrel. Spring fishing was much neglected until within a few years.
