II is (he opinion of ^o'me compe tent nuthm'il L-.'j on pi.-i.'iodturo, that the roaring of fish mi a small scale might prove a profitable oc cupation if conducted on s.vsl emat ic principle.!. Many person:* are in clined to imagine that litis iiuhis try can' bo only carried on suc cessfully i'1 river.-';, streams, or Juices.
