Re-animation of frozen Fish. —In winter the Cana
dian fishermen erect lints on the ice of the lakes and
rivers, and cutting a hole in the ice, enclose it with a
of straw, &c. to shelter themselves from the
Sitting inside the screen, they sink their
hooks through the hole made in the ice. Amongst
the other fish so caught are perch in abundance,
ter hauling them up, if thrown aside ou the ice, they
speedily become frozen quite hard. They then take
them home and place them in water near a fire ; in a
short time they begin to exhibit symptoms of re-anima
tion—the fins first quiver, the gills open, the fish grad
ually turns itself on its belly, moves at first slowly a
bout the basin, and at last completely revives and
swims briskly about.— Edin. N. Phil. Jour.
By a letter from Worcester, we learn the following
particulars of a very novel and quixotic adventure :
On Friday evening, a little before sunset, two gentle
(to all appearance) rode up to the hotel, with a
fine horse and ehaise, and requested refreshment and
lodgings for the night. After refreshing themselves
they walked down Main-street, arm in arm, and at
tracted considerable attention from the citizens by
their unusually polished appearance. About sunset a"
man, post-haste, arrived in town, with advertisements,
offering a reward for a couple of gentlemen, who had
absconded from Albany with a hired horse and chaise.
Our young gentlemen were immediately suspected,
and accordingly were arrested and examined. They
confessed themselves the rogues, and were committed
After their commitment it was ascertained
that this brace of rogues were females! They are
thought to he about 18 years of age, and their novel
introduction to the citizens of Worcester has already
drawn to their temporary residence a host of curious
and admiring visitors.— Lancaster (Mass.) Gat.
