Reports from the Gulf of St. Lawrence state that the mackerel fishing has been un usually unsuccessful this season. This is at tributed by fishermen not to a want of fish, for there was abundance, but to the preva lence of high winds, which by agitating the water rendered it muddy and prevented the fish from biting. On the Bay Quinte conside rable quantities of white fish are caught.— This year about 1,500 bbls. have been taken. The exertions of the fishermen are receiving a new stimulus in the increased price of their wares. Before this season the price has sel dom exceeded $3 a bbl., but owing to an American demand it has now risen to $4,50 and $5. White fish are also caught on some parts of the Georgia Bay, but the enterprise has not been carried on to any great extent.
