ANECDOTE OF A PIKE.-When I Was residing in Suffolk as a country clergyman, I became acqulainted with various peculiarities displayed in tile pike tribe, the relation of which, I think, may prove interesting to the readers of Land and Water." Having to use water firom a small pond for ill domestic purposes, I procured a pike about eight inches long, and, as near as I could judge, about nine months to a year, ohi, certainly not more (blut I have found by experience thllt the size of fish 'much depends, upon the quantity of food they are able to procure, more so than upon more age). Thie purpose tfor which I got the piklte in question was to keepl the pond, which was an artificial one, free from all water defilers, as frogs, neyts, lizards, and dragon-fly larve. This he speedly diid, and most rapidly increased l-in bulk. About three months after the fish hal been placed in the'pond, it was coated over with ice, and remained so mosot of the winter.
