NohthCaholina Fisheries. Mr. Wiley
writes to the Weekly Post afi account of
I a visit to the fishery of Mr. Spruill upon
the Chowan river, near Albemarle Sound.
After describing the scenery near the
fishery he says :
fully situated on a wide creek at the foot
of one' of these high banks ; and here are
appliances and investments all novel to
the mountaineer. Suffice it to say, it
takes a large force to work an extensive
fishery a force of laborers, overseers,
clerks, mules, &.c. ozc.and that while the
previous outlay is very considerable, the
daily expenses are from $50 to 8100.
'The business, ii seemed to me, is a
good deal lik' that - of rrtiniflg-there is
an hourly expectation of a lucky lorn of
fortune. Ihe snne of Mr. Spruill was
about two thousand yards long this be
ing about the average size of those of the
large Fisheries ; and w-hen I . was with
him. he was making four hauls a day,
and catching about 2000 herring and 200
shad, and a few rock at each haul. I un
derstand that this was a good business at
that early stage of the season, for modern
years at least; but how, far short is this
of the achievement ol former ) ears I At
each fishery they keep a journal, entering
therein the direction of the wind and the
state of ihe weather at each haul, the'
number caught. &c, and 1 had an oppor
tunity of looking over one ,nf these truth
ful chronicles. -.It was for the year 1841
or 45 I think ; and it wag often mentioned
that as many as fifty thousand herrings
were caught at a haul.
One day there were three hauls made,
as follows: (I qonte from memoryr hut

Hail Storm On Monday last, sections
above and below our Village were visited
by a severe hail storm, accompanied by
lightning and thunder We have not
heard of any damage done by it. In a
private letter from a friend at Greenville,
we understand lhat it was very severe in
that village, accompanied with rain, and
after the storm had passed a yellow sub
stance, somewhat resembling . sulphur,
was discovered floating on the water on
barrels and in pools This phenomenon,
wc have no doubt, is the same ns lhat
seen some time since, in New Orleans
which, after analyzing the substance, was
pronounced nothing more than the fuzz

No doubt the Editors of the " JournaP
would keep theie promise to the letter, on
receiving the accommodation they solicit.
But in the event no generous "friend"
should step forward to relieve them, can
not the editors of the Journal afford to
think, make the most of it, and do justice
to their memories. . It is a very small fa
vor surely too small for them to refuse!.
Just think of it ! How the Herald"
would spice it 1 and how solemly our ven
erable father of the " Cornmercia'' would
dwell upon it ; and Badger! he'd "spread
himself in rigging jou out for a region
pure and blissfqt,, and safely land you
there ! Our friend llALavof the "Observ
