seems to bo enough to go all around,
without taking into consideration Fulton,
Jefferson and a half n dozen other smaller
markets iu different parts of tho city, which
havo presented similar scones of busy activ
ity during tlio samo interval.
Not only tho mnrkot itself, but all tho
streets and thoroughfares leading to it havo
been taken possession of by hordes of outer
prising merchants, who havo erected stands
nnd anchored carts at every avnilablo cornor
and curb with tho most cheerful disregard of
tho ordinances against street inoumbranccs,
and who press tlieir wares upon tho passer-by
with persistence und energy.
LOOKINO FOR BOMETHINO NICE.
Vesey street nffords tho best illustration of
this branch of tho Christmas trndo at Wash
ington Market; for, from Church streot
down to tlio river, the sidowalks oro com
pletely lined with tho stands of strootven
dcis. Those stntiouod nearer Broadway offor for
salo small fancy articles, suitablo for cheap
presents; dolls, with flaxen hair nnd flexiblo
joints, for 25 cents : penknives and toys of
various sorts, with tho usual display of fruit
Furthor down one cneountors a vuricd as
sortment of household articlos, hnrdwnre
nnd oven furniture und then comes n long
lino of stands w-hero Christmas treo orna
ments aro hold. Theso make n brilliant dis
play with festoons of varicolored glass balls,
glittoring rellcctors, colored wax tnpers, and
gold ond silver tinsel. Kvory article that is
needed for trimming und docorating a Christ
ians treo cuu bo procured hero, and it is al
most needless to say that tho stands have
been well patronized nil day long.
Down opposito tho market tho retail deal
ers of Christmas trees and Christmas greens
havo fairly takon possession of tho streot,
and hivo monopolized it to such on extent
that thero is only just about room on ono
sido of tlio rondw ay for two wagons to pass
encli other. A big fromovvork of wood, ex
tending from Washington btrect nearly down
it) West is divided oil into sections for tho dif
ferent venders, and upon it is hung a bewil
dering variety of decorativo emblems in
Christinas greens, ground pine, holly, laurel
and mistletoe, unit sometimes several of these
are contiued iu tho same figure. Thero aro
wi oaths, stars, triauglos, crosses and other
designs, iu all sizos to suit tho purse of tho
buyer, and may bo had .from 10 cents
Many of thorn nro rendered additionally
attiactivo by weaving into tho wreaths bright
red holly borrios, or yellow, rod and purple
immortelles, mosses and dyed grassos of
various colors. Theso, of courso, nro among
tho higher priced goods. At nearly all of
these, stands Christmas trees nro also sold, tho
cheapest ranging from 15 to 23 cents apieco.
Tho thousands of peoplo who daily visit
tlio market uttinet tho btreot vendors to tlio
neighborhood, aud for tlio lust two weeks
the peddlcts havo been doing a thriving busi
ii( ss, and for as much longer thoy aro likely
to hold tho fort without a diminution of
Insido tho big brick building, which
spioudb itself over the whole block, thero is
u scene of activity and animation which
surpasses even that upon tho street. Ail of
tlie stall-keepers havo prepared themselves
for tho holiday bcaeou und tlieir choicest
goods bn o been arranged so as to produco
tho most attractive display. Many of thorn
havo decoiated tlieir stuuds with wronths and
festoouB of evergreons and holly to mako tho
quarters of beef aud tho provisions tho moro
attractive to customors,
Naturally tho poultry and gamo stalls com
mand tho most attention at this season, und
these certainly furnish an extra flno display.
It is said that thu quality of tho poultry is
liner thou usuul this year, while it docs not
fall behind in quantity. In fact, tho supply
is a good deal iu excess of tho demand, and
the current prices fur tho past woek havo
shown but littlo change.
Theio is moro demand for turkeys than
anything else, and ptices raugo from 14 to 18
cents a pound. Chickens come next at 12 to
1G cents, with Philadelphia loasters, which
nro regnrded as a great delicacy, at 20 cents.
Germans oro tho largest buyers of goeso,
which raugo in price from 14 to 18 cents,
while n moderate trado in ducks is douo at 14
to IS cents, Somo of tho plumpest and
choicest fowls aro decorated with bright
colored papor rosettes.
"Tho supply of game." said tho largest
dealer in tho mnrkot to-day, " is becoming
smaller overy veur, so thnt now only tho
wealthiest peoplo ond tho clubs, which must
linvo it ut nny cost, cuu afford to buy it.
Theso nro about tho only cubtomors wo havo
now. This is bocauso so much gamo is uow
shipped to Kuropo and becauso it is actually
getting scarco here.
" You will never soa gamo cheap again in
this country. Why, it was only a few years
ogo that prairio fowl were considered dear at
M cents a brnco, and now you can't got them
for less than yl.tO. It takes a man with a
pretty long purse to enjoy canvusback ut $7
a pair, if lie lias to pay for them himself, or
redheads nt rj3."
'Uio kinds of gamo principally dealt in now
aro qunil, which cubt 3 a dozen, and squabs
nt iJU.fJO, Theso remain comparatively cheap.
Partridges urn 81.10 a brace, milliards $1.25,
guinea fowl 75 cents, and capons 25 cents a
Another branch of trade which is booming
nt this season is that in fruits aud nuts. Of
both of thoso there is a plentiful supply in
the market, aud somo of the btalls display so
rich a variety of dainties that tho mouth of
tho passer-by fairly waters as he gazes upon
Tlioro is now a supply of fine Florida and
Jamaica ornuges iu tho market, which may
bo had all tho way from 25 to CO cents a
dozen, while fancy oranges, like Metsinaj,
come somewhat hlghor, and ths ordinary va
rieties aro much cheaper.
Spitzenborgs. greenings, King apples,
iNorthern Spies, Baldwins and snow apples
;make an attractive display and may be had at
reasonable prices, while lady apples, which
aro chiefly in demand for decorativo pur.
poses, nro sold at 15 conts a quart.
Malaga grapes aro ns low a 12 conts a
pound, but tho California fruit in tho maikot,
though not scarco, is not of tho best qunlity,
now invoicos not being expected till uoxt
Walnuts oro 20 conts a pound i almonds, 35 ;
Brazil nuts, 15 ; pecans. 20 ; Alberts. 15, and
mixed nuts 20 conts, and no ono who is mak
ing purchases for tho Christmas diuner-tablo
cuu afford to ncgloct this necessary part of
Tho fish and meat markets aro not particu
larly nffected by tho holiday trndo, and prices
consequently do not show nny particular
change. Nevertheless, tho dealers in Wash
ingtou Market hnvo taken just nbout as much
pains to make their stalls attractive as peoplo
in other branches of trado. Indeed, among
tlio poorer classes, tho substantial of this
kind aro most in demand.
For privato fnmilies tho fiBh most in de
mand nt this season of tho year are cod, hud
dock, flounders and smelts, whilo tho rcstiut
rnnts wnnt big striped bnBS, salmon trout,
bluelisli, smelts aud lobsters. Prices for all
of those oro comparatively cheap, those in
tlio former list ranging from G to 10 conts and
tho latter from 10 to 15.
A dainty now in tlio market is Southern
shad, which sells from 40 to CO cents a pound.
Fresh-caught salmon oro 40 conts a pound.
RED KOSES ON THE TIER ENDS.
Some Cltr Fishermen Who Follow Their

Even tho presenco of biting cold wcatbor
cannot drivo tho fishermen away from tho

his faco an ashen gray, ho novortholess clings
to his sport with a grip that death alouo can
The fishormau docs not fish for profit. If
ho depended upon his fish for a living ho
would not fish vory long before tho Coroner
would pass upon tho manner of his death.
Ho does not fish for pleasure, becauso thero
is no pleasuro in it. Ifo llshcs from habit.
Tho drunkard or tho morphino eater may
euro himself of his habit, but the fisherman
can nover break himself of his. When tho
chronic libhornian is, by unfeeling fate, com
pelled to work for n living during the day ho
spends half tho night ou a bleak and chilly
pier end with his throw lines nnd his littlo
box of bait.
Ho nover catches anything of any uso. His
fish nro tho sizo of sardines. At rare and
blissful intervals ho catches a bullhead or a
hapless flounder. Then ho is buoyed up with
tlio conviction that fishing is a great and
Several kinds of bait are used by theso fish
ormou. During tho warm months sand
worms mako tho best bait. In cold weather,
when saud-wonns froezo nnd icicles hang
from tho btring.piocos of tho piors, tho fishor
mau uses calf's liver, sheep's lungs and sev
eral other varioties of butcher-shop rofuso for
bait. , '
Fish bito theso things probably because
they wish to dio ut once und put an end to
their miberv. Certainly no self-respecting,
healthy fish would bito such things lu a
cheorf ul state of mind.
Old men, middle-aged men and young boys
nliko haunt tho pier ends day and night.
Tho habit grows with udvnuciug ago.
One of these fishermen was onco seen on a
stcamor nt the Cholera Banks. " It's no
good," said ho. ' Cod fishin' ain't nothin' to
shin' off tho docks." All theso fishermen
buy " dock," instead of pior, or wharf. Tho
three words mean tho samo to them.
