Owing to some disease, the nature of which our fishermen are unable to Im agine, the fish in Lake Centennial have sickened and are dying in my riads, as many sportsmen report, the edge of the lake being bordered with "shiners," forming a band six inches to a foot wide, while in the deep wa ter bass from six Inches to a foot long, as well as cattish and other varieties, are either dead or dying. Mr. Bur ton, who called the attention of sev eral of the same kind of phenomenon, says something of the samo kind oc curred seven or eight years ago, but can give no Idea of the cause. Fisher men who observed the situation left the lake and were advising their friends last evening not to buy any fresh-water fish, unless from abso lutely reliable persons, as Bsb in such condition cun scarcely be wholesome. The lake is very low, which might ac count In some measure for the sick ness or the fish, but on the other hand it is extremely clear and pure, and withal very deep, so, unless the con tamination is from extraordinary sources the only reasonable supposi tion is that the Bsb are sunering from a disease. A negro was seen yesterday who bad scooped up two dozen or more bass and, in fact, so sick are they that they hardly offer to get out of the way and might be caught with a dip net by hundreds, it is said. fVlcksburg Herald.
