Monthly Memorandum - Niagara, Dec. 4th - The fishing has been carried on in this River during the whole month with moderate success; every day, some. There has so far, been a variety of different kinds of fish taken, but those delicate and excellent fish called White Fish begins to predominate. There are not less than fifty people who live by that business in this Town, at present. Every day this week there has not been less than 1000 taken per day at an average; yesterday 1,614 were taken, mostly White Fish. [Gleaner]
