AT 10 II N-Y 3 AND COUNSELLORS,
; JCIUBLOTTE, K. C. u
, The writer lins been engaged in fish cul
ture for about nine years, and being at the
bcgimiiog, a mere notice in the business, I
baye, of course, committed-many mistakes
during this peridd, and propose to mea
tibn soni 00116011, in te hope that it, may
prerent Othersemagin in the business
from coiiiBiUting like errors. , ; ;. . -i
Jly.first stock of fish-1 was' obtained from
tbe old McCay mUl pond, then the proper
ty of Mrs. W.CL McNecly. They consisted
mainly of the different varieties of perch
Perot JIatesctn), sunfish (PomotU avritu$),
and suckers Ottontomv cotninerimii.)
My experience is, that the sucker will
not breed in -small, circumscribed ponds,
unless there be, at the head of the pond, a
shoally, gravelly, stream, iii wliith they may
deposit their,egg9. ' If, however, the small
fry of the mucker1 be pur Into' ponds, j they
will thrive and row to fail size t "
. I ton ml that my first stoek of prachf and
sunfish did well, grew rapidly, and soon at
tained to a large-size. The fecundity f
these fish is amazing,4 and so rery-prblifle
are they, that I found at the end of two
years they had so greatly overstocked my
pond that there whs riot -a sufficiency of
food for them, "and-1 the' consequence., has
been, theiish have ceased to grow,"-and I
was seldom able to catch one of any j con
siderable size. . ; ,
I will here" state that the sunfisl and
perch are inscctiverous. i. e., they feed al
most CKchibive'y on insei-ts and aquatic
worms and their larva?. . If. therefore, the
pond be overstocked, it will be impossible
for than to obtain a .sufficiency " food;
consequently the fish wiiljrrow vtrv slowly

only the head grows a little, whilst the
rest of the body remains small. As scion as
young fish feel the tvant of food, foj any
considerable Icngfh'of tinie, the gristle and
bone of the skeleton harden, thus bringing
its development to a close, not allowing na
ture fair play, and the. fish remains;aunt

is placed in ponds-or streams affording UDp-i

It did not take me'-many years to jlearn.
that the cultivation 'of the perch.' was a
failure, and or cnirse I was thoroughly
disgusted with the whole tribe. . I annj con
vinced that tliey really do not possess any
value eit her as an' article of food orras a
fish for other fish to' feed upon, a considera
tion that should be taken into account, in
considering the value of a species, though
small. Thev are considered by, many !to be
a fair "pan fish," when of good size, but
such as we are able to raise in our small,
overstocked ponds are general lv so mall
as to le of no economic valve.. Therefore,
if I had the thing to commence again, 1
should, ia stockingmy. pond, reject the
perch-as 'cbmparirjitj'Jwojihless,'!.' j S
Alout the third'ycar after the erection of
my pond I introduced a fiue Epeeies of the
mullet (Moxostoma obUtitfum). Tliis fish has
been of vastly niore profit to me than any
other variety I have ever vet tried.' j It is
emphatically a pond fish; is xery prolific,
and is perfectly at home in a small pond.
When fully grown they weigh two' to two
and a half pounds, their flesh is of fine fla
vor, ami they are an excellent table variety.
Therefore, I should advise beginners to
stock with the mullet; by all means. They
feed on worms and insects, but if there be
a scarcity or these, they arc tond or bread,
mush, boiled hominy or rice. They are not
carnivcrous, and consequently do notiprey
upon other tisn. indeed, they are a species
of sucker, or lear o close resembl a ncc.l

I concluded about four years ago ' to intro

I procured some ten or twdvo good sized
breeders. These during the first scasoo",
produced' incalculable -numbers of young
fry. They werenatcnea auring oune ana

inches long and would bite on a worm like

a length ot eight or nine inches ano wouia
weiirh from to i' of a noundj Prior to
this.'there had been countless numbers of
Cyprinoids, such as minnows, silverfish, etc.
Soou I discovered that ' these were disap
pearing rapidly. - By tle-nd of the second
summer, many of the trout had attained a
w tight of t wo pounds or more, and their
young were; largely on -the Increase. JJur:
ing the month ot July of -th present vear,
I frequently 6a w, and showed to othe per
sons, a school of young, trout,' that doubt

Liverpoid, August 19. This week's
circular iof the Liverpool cotton brok
ers' association says : Cotton was qui
et on Friday and Saturday, but re
vived on Monday and a large business
has since been done at an advanced
rate. American was in an advanced
demand; and prices gradually ad
vanced a farthing. Sea Island was
in moderate request at unchanged
rates. Futures have been strong and
active and prices advanced five-sixteenths
; pence for near, and three
sixteenths peuce for distant positions.
Our roailers will doubtless remem
ber reading iu this paper, last fall, an
account of an accident whereby Mr.
Memphis Belk had his thigh brokeu
while engaged in packing cotton.
Sometime afterward Mr. Belk -fell
frtfm a door-step and broke the bones
in the same place. On last Tuesday,
while riding oti horseback quite up
idly, his bridle rein broke, ai d he was
thrown or fell from his hor?e and the
unfortunate limb was broken again iu
the same, place making the third
time it has been broken in the last
twelve mouths. Monroe Enquirer.
