Fresh Fish.—Whenever the wind veers to the westward, as has been the case during the past week, immense shoals of mullet make their approach to shore. This is also near the season for spawning and consequently the fish are large and fat. Last Saturday they were so abundant in the market that they were sold for about one cent apiece or twenty-five for twenty-five cents. Now is the good and the best time for chowders. There are a plenty of New England men among us,who are proficient in this kind of cuisine, and can concoct a chowder that would tempt the most dilatory of appetites.
