COMMERCIAL MATTERS, Etc.
Oar Sea Fisheries. The following is tfco first of a scries of articles by an old fish merchant, which was published long ago in the American Grocer The sea fisheries of the United StVes are carried on principally from the New Eugland States, Massachusetts and Maine doing by far the largest part of the business. The vessels employed are from fifty to one hundred and fifty tons burden, and in speed and equip monts are not excelled by anything short of a "club" yacht. Thé cod-fishermen begin to leave about the first of February for George's Bank, which fishing is principally conducted from Glon oester, and is considered to be the most risky to life and property of any on the coast lister in the season vessels leave for the Grand, Western, Browns and other banks on the Northern coast, laying up abont the first of December. The fish are salted in bulk in the vessel, or if canght near the shore are " struck" or salted in butts. Afterwards each fish is washed dean and dried i# the air or pressed. These fish are mostly con sumed in the States, though large quantities of the "hard-cured" are shipped to the West Indies. The herring fisheries are carried on from Cape Hatteras to the Labrador, and comprise many qualities. There are two species of fish known to the trade as herring that differ very much—one known as the herring of the Potomac and the shores south of Cape Cod the alewife of Massachusetts Bay, Maine and Nova Sootia; and the gaspareax of New Brunswiok—those from the latter place be ing the largest and best fish. This fish de posits its spawn in the ponds on the numer ous rivers along ths coast, and also in ponds nearer the sea. They make their appearance early in the spring, at which time they are in the best condition, not being fit lor food after the spawning season is over. The other kind, known as the herring proper, is taken from Cape God to Labrador, and when in good condition, is a much finer fish than the Potomac herring or alewife. This is siriotly a sea fish, and never enters the rivers and ponds along the coast, but de posits its spawn in the .sea. It is caught near to the shore in seines, nets and weirs. This fish is not as migratory in its habits as most others, but is found on some portion of the coast during the whole year. The best quality oomes from Labrador, from whence they are shipped to all parts of the world. Of the three principal food fishes, the mackerel, in the cost of the outfit and the value of the ca'cb, takes the first rank. They make their appearance on our Southern Coast early in. April, arriviug at Cape Cod during June, and moving as either choice or neces sity may govern them. By the former, we mean their desire to reach Hie places for spawning which they frequent, aud by the lat ter the depredation of voracious fish like the whale, shark and bluefish. The latter has a particular relish for mackerel, following them North, and returning with them South, de stroying them in vast numbers and giving them no rest. Before spawning the mackerel is in very poor er udition, being entirely without fat and Otherwise not particularly desirable for food. After spawning they improve rapidly, and if their food or "bait" in the water is plenty they are soon in finer condition, and remain so anti they leave in the fall, say daring the month of November. The mackerel is very erratic, and but little is known of his habits. We know that he trill come on the coast in the spring, and leave in the fall, but beyond that we are in doubt. He may visit his old haunts, and he may not. He may be large in size and of fine quality, or otherwise. If fished for with the hook, he may be inclined to bite, or may "tnrn up his Pose" at the nicest bait for a whole season, . as he has often done. If the modern seine is used, be may conclude that deep water is the best place tor him, and not flip his.tail aboVe crater for months. These and other causes tuake an estimate of the catch uncertain, and daring the season prioes fluctuate daily like stooks in Wall street on a panic day. The vessels engaged in the taking of mack erel are loaded with barrels and salt, as this Hah mast be salted and placed in pickle as soon as possible after bring canght. As soon as taken they are split on the back, the en trails and gills removed, and the fish thrown into a barrel of water to soak out the blood. The water is ohanged three orafour times, when they are salted into a barrel; the barrel filled With pickle, headed np and stowed away below. On arrival home the mackerel are taken ont, called as to qualify, and packed as (nay be wanted. THE EXPOSITION. We are glad to find, from personal observa tion, that the Exposition at the Fair Grounds bids fair to be a success. From the Superin tendent we leaYn that all the available space in the Varions buildings has been engaged, though we could not bat notice that many exhibitors were very dilatory in putting their Wares in position. This is the grand open ing day, and we can reasonably expect to see m vast crowd on the grounds. At 3 o'clock P. fit. Gov. Hendricks, of Indiana, one of the foremost orators and statesmen of the «oumry, will deliver the opening address. The Fkir Grounds will present a most ani tpating spectacle to-day. That pleasant and genial gentleman, Mr. frank D. Hatfield, agent for Colgate & Com pany, the famons soap manufacturers of New York, is in town. This fact reminds us •f the violet toilet water manufactured by this company, which we have used and can testify to its excellence. This toilet water possesses a delicacy of odor hitherto un known, except in the finest extracts. The «olognee, Florida waters and other perfumes of this class now in nse have a certain pungency and permanency in their odors, but wholly lack the pleasant sweetness and delightful delicacy of Colgate <fc Company's violet water. This artiole was gotten np by the late head perfumer of M. Lubio, Paris, as a test proof of his ability to add to the house of C. & Co., New York, a perfumery department that should turn ont goods of a quality equal to or superior to any made in London or Paris. The leading perfumery experts of the world havb oonoeded that strictly as a toilet water G. & Go. 's violet wa*er is unequaled by at y similar preparation known to the trade, and the elite ot New York, Philadelphia and Bos ton society now nse it universally for bath pu r posas.and ordinary handkerchief nse. All drug gists aud fancy goods dealers in New Orleans are laying in a supply in anticipation of its speedy popularity Here, it • having been just introduced by agents of Messrs. C. & Co. EXHIBITION FOB THE BENEFIT OF A BÎBLE School —On Monday night ntxt an exhibi tion with seiopticon and calcium lights, em bracing many rare and amusin ' pictures, will be given for the benefit of the Coliseum Place Baptist Btbln School, in the church corner of Gamp and Terpsichore streets.

To the .great throng of »people who con template' visiting the Fair we would say, read the advertisement, in another column, of the Orleans Railroad Conpany, whose cars will Sake passengers «from Clay Statue, on Canal street, to * the central gate of the Exposition Building.. Mr. H Hoard, the Secretary, an nounces that a foil supply of cars will always be on hand for the accommodation of the public. of a The British Empire is so immense and in clndes so many barbarous nations that there are always two or three wars going on within the Qopen's dominions. The latest outbreak is in Fejee, where several powerful tribes Lave renounced Christian i .y and ass died the frontier settlements. The trouble had its origin in the frightful spread of measles among the native population, no less than 35,000 persons having perished fr-m the plague, the introduction of which'h) Fee jeans attribute to British carelessness. A Chinese doctor 6ays that Americana boil tea, and thereby lose the flavor, while the Chinese m ike it by infusion. Tbey place small quantity of tea leaves iu a bowl, pour boiling water npen it, and thtn cover the bowl. The strength of the tea depends on the time the tea is allowed to draw. "And," Slid the speaker, "when miking an infu sion do not boil tha water hastily at first. Milk or sugar should never be n-ed with tea. One of the novelties of a new hotel in Jack sonville, Fa., is a crystal chandelier in the bridal chamber. By touching a button it is lighted; at the same moment oat springs little Capid, who strikes with a hammer chime of bells, which peal out in the sweet est melody, "Best in this bosom," "Let me kiss him for his mother," eto.
