Before he had gone far, Mr.
Steele heard from the excited
guests several different versions
of the affair; but one and all
agreed that the roscuer could be
nothing less than a champion
'A regular water-dog.!' said one
gentleman to Mr. Steele; and as
the merchant had heard this
epithet but once before in bis life,
and that on an occasion of vital
interest to himself, he sought out
the hero of the hour, and found,
to his unbounded astonishment,
it was John Waters himself! He
was quite enveloped in the floun
ces -and fur-belows of pretty and
sympathetic women, who insisted
upon knowing every haif second
if he was sure he felt strong and
well, and how in the world could
he buffet those dreadful waves in
that grand, heroic wvay, and how
(id he manage to drag poor Mr.
Stuyvesant in to the shore ?
John, like any other hero of the
hour, enjoyed this adulation, but
looked anxiously at Mr. Steele
when he approached.
'Hum,' growled that worthy
merhant; 'a pretty fellow, you.
to interfere with other people's
plans! How do you know he
wanted to be rescued ?'
'Hle:appeared arxious that way,
sir,' said John. 'Hei wrapped
him'self about me like a devil fish.

go down together. There ought
to be a school for teaching people
how to Lbe saved. It's the easiest

Ireplied. 'I vias interested in the

way we made his acquaintance
was on such an occasion ; he saved
a lady fr-om drowning.'
'Why, papa,' said Laura, 'he

'Magnificent!' said Mr. Steele.

Irather odd one morning to dis

FOR THE 1EIRALD.
31 ESHss. EarrlJons: We are fond
or reading r(iisCenes of the past,
and nleased with articles frangt with
good advice, clAculated to promote a
desire for tihe establishment of facto
ries, the building of railro2ds; in fact
everythictg leading to the advance
men', of general prosperity.
Among the useful may be denomi
nated Pisuiculture, or fish culture.
The artificial propagation of edible
fishes is practicable everywhere, and
is economical of tho material of repro
dajcLion. Not onl is it useful in fur
nishing instructive popular experi
ments in natural history, but it edu
cates a natural taste for rural pursuits,
while it undoubtedly adds to the luxu
ries of tables, and more than this in
cieases the food supplies Of the people.
Fish culture can be imprped and car
ried on at a very small expense, which
can be established by the most un
doubted proof. If, as scieutific men
assert, that fish food is a fertilizer of
the brain, then we have the best rea
sons in the world for advocating the
subject and its extension by every
available means; for who needs brains
more than the people of this Co.nty
and this State.
Centurics and centuries no fish
hatching was practiced among the an
cients. The Chinese have always kept
a supply of fish in their streams by
this process, and although they have
a dense population fish are there so
plenty and cheap th*at a penny will
buy enough fish meat to supply a.con
siderable family. The Romans and
Grecians, Persians, Egyptians reared
them in large quantities. The fish
ponds and oyster beds of Sergius
Orata, Lucul!us, Albinus and others
were stocked with the finest kind of
fish hatched out by artificial process.
It is stated that som~e of the wealthy
raised breeds of fish as our farmers
raise peculiar kinds of stock. Not
only in the countries mentioned, but
even in Africa. in barbarized Africa.
has the experiment been successfully
The nations of Europe. as France,
England, Scotland, Ireland, G'ermany,
have taken up this artificial propaga
tion of fish and derived from jt the
most profitable advantages. Not only
individuals practice this process for
their own amusement, use or profit;
but these governments, in order to feed
their hungry subjeets with increase of
food supplies; and it has been found
of no doubtful productive v'alue.
Because we may. be a young country
in comiparison with these eid veteran
lands, wh os head are hoary with age,
and whose streams and water courses
have been seined and dragged and
altered, until recently forced to
resort to some experiment and method
by which the waste could be remedied,
is by no means a sufficient reason for
us : ' country and this State to
say its of no use-we are in the fresh
ness of y'outh, our streams and ponds
arc full of fish; they can never be
rendered tenantless. It is no such
thing; already have our streams felt
the loss of a fish population that have
either been destroyed by wilful waste
by a merciless, cruel, destructive war
fare, which through and by obstruc
tions and circumstances have turned
their faces from their former haunts.
Take Broad Raiver', the Saluda. Pedee,
Santee, and i.n fact all, and we ask the
question, what has become of the shad
and the.herrings that used to run up
their currents by countless thousands ?
What has become of the trout, the
bream, the suckers, the perch, even
the voracious cat, that can live any
where ? To-day they are so scarce
that it would be difficeult for a man to
catch enough for himself, much less
for a family. If Piscicuituare has been
carried out successfully among the an
cients apd amoug the modern nations
of Europe, why cannot and why should
not we be induced "whien coming
(vents cast their shadows before," to
follow in their footsteps preparatory
for the present as well as the future ?
Tihe biessing of a house is piet.y.
The honor of a house is hospitali
ty. The ornament of a house is
cleanliness. The happiness of a
house is ontentment.I

We took the tomahawk. We had
no law to punish those who did

Two hundred -and fifty-seven
drinking saloons in Richmond, Vir

sold during the month .of MIay as
registered by the Moffet liquor reg

A computation based on the price
charged for these drinks by the
saloon-keepers shows that if all t
sales were registered the gross're
eeipts of the saloon-keepers amount
ed only to two dollars each per-day,
The conclusions reached from this
analysis of the sales as reported is
that the registering of drinks is
largely evaded by the . saloon-keep
