The Caledonia Trout Pond.
One of the greatest curiosities in
Western New York—we may almost
say one of the greatest in the world—
is the trout-breeding establishment o!
Seth Green, in Caledonia, Livingston
county, to which we paid a brief visit
last week. His house and ponds are
on the border of the stream called the
Caledonia Springs, which flow in a vast
volume of the purest water from a
small hollow in the village of Caledo
nia, and after a course of a mile unites
in the village of Mumford with Allen's
Creek, one ot the tributaries of the
Genessee The country through which
it flows is thickly settled, and one of
the richest and best farming towns in
the State. The surface of the land is
quite level, with banks but little above
the surface of tbe water. The stream,
in places, is very rapid, and in others
has a gentle current of a mile or more
The* springs as now situated cover
about six acres, being damned slightly
lor mining purposes. They afford
about eighty barrels of water per sec
ond, and make a creek from three to
four rods wide, and from eighteen
inches to six feet deep, according to the
current. The bottom is covered with
small white shells and gravel The
water is clear, pure and perfectly
transparent, so that any object can be
seen for three or four rods very dis
tinctly. Its temperature at the springs
is forty-eight degrees the whole year
round, hut down the creek, three-quar
ters of a mile, it rises in the hottest
days in summer to fifty-eight degrees
by night, but it is down in the morn
ing to fifty-two degrees. In winter it
settles at times to forty-three degrees,
hut generally keeps up to forty-five or
forty six degrees. The temperature of
the water to Allen's ('reek is very even
the year round, but very cold in sum
mer and quite warm in the winter,
never freezing in the coldest weather.
The water through the whole length
of the creek, as well as every stone,
stick, weed and blade of grass, is alive,
and literally covered with numerous
insects and larva? of flies, summer and
winter, so that the trout, however nu
merous they are, easily obtain all the
food they want at all times of the year.
There is but very little surface water
that makes into the creek, hence the
volume of water is very even. The
first settlors of the country found the
creek literally tilled with troutof great
size and beautj*, and it has remained
so to this day, notwithstanding it has
been almost constantly fished, night as
well as day, from that time to this.—
The largest and finest trout are taken
in the evening with a large aitificial
white or gray miller.
The number of trout in this stream
of a mile in length is compared at up
wards of 300,000, the largest of which
are each four or five pounds in weight.
About 4,000 pounds of trout are taken
from the creek yearly Mr. Ainsworth,
of West Bloomfield, to whose excellent
article published in the Tribune last
winter we are indebted for these staj
tistics, says that on the 18th of Decern
ber, 18(55,' he took with the fly a hun
dred and ten fine trout in about three
hours, and on the next day took eigh
ty five splendid fellows from one place.
These trout, he says, were as tat, ac
tive arid gamey as he ever saw them
in any other stream in May or June.
Seth Green, the celebrated marksman
and fly-thrower of this city, bought
this creek in for the purpose of
growing ti ut artificially, as well as
naturally, <>u an extended scale.
lie has since pn pared ponds, races,
hatch houses and hatching boxes and
troughs for 3,000,000 of spawn. The
pond containing the largest fish and
principal spawners was first construct
ed. A strong volume of water passes
through it lrom the main stream, the
quantity received and discharged being
so regulated that there is no danger of
overflowing. It enters under a wheel
which is so exactly fitted to its place
that not the smallest fish can escape,
and maintains a regular motion. This
pond is seventy five feet long, twelve
feet wide and four or five feet deep.—
Mr. Green's dwelling is over the lower
end of this pond, which affords shade
and a hiding place for the trout when
they choose to retire from view.
There are from eight to ten thou
sand fish in thispond, and water enough
for fifty times that number. A great
deal of feed passes to them from the
stream, but they are fed every day
with beef liver chooped fine, to which
they rush in tlie most excited manner,
leaping out of the water, and tugging
voraciously two or three at a time at
the same piece. They are so tame
that they will take the liver from a
spoon or even from the hand, and will
even bite the hand itself, as wo can
testify from the sharp experience of
To a lover of fish no finer sight can
be presented than the sight of this
pond, swarming with splendid trout,
as plainly visible, so clear is the water,
as if they were in the open air It is
a gigantic aquarium, which probably
has no rival in the world, and the mere
sight of which will well repay the
trouble and expense of along journey
But besides this main pond, Mr. Green
has another close by it titty by thirty
feet, which contains about 20,000 two
year old trout, and still another, filled
with countless multitudes of yearlftigs.
and lastly, a long pond, or brook in
which are hundreds of thousands of
this year's hatching.
The hatching house is a simple, in
expensive structure of wood, forty by
twenty feet, with posts eight feet high
It has three screened windows, admit
ting a soft light and excluding the
glare of the sun. Being roofed, the
spawn and young trout are perfectly
protected from storms of hail, which
in shallow water might in one minute
destroy thousands of young trout; or
a heavy and sudden fall of rain might
wash them from the troughs where
they are kept for several weeks after
hatching. These troughs are three in
The water is brought from the main
stream through bored logs and received
into a tank six feet long, two feet
eight inches wide and a foot and a half
deep, from whence it passes through
six strainers into a trough running en
tirely across the end of the house, and
from thence by small gates (which are
regulated at pleasure to increase or
diminish the flow of water) it passes
into the several hatching troughs, &e.
These troughs are subdivided, or rath
er two are placed together, and be
tween them are passages for conveni
ently distributing the spawn, inspect
ing the operation of feeding and hatch
ing the young fish. By wooden bars
the troughs are partitioned into small
By this arrangement the force of
the current is checked at each bar, and
the trout are prevented from huddling
in a mass and becoming suffocated.
The space on one side is a platform,
having a stove and the various conve
niences for feeding, &c. At one end
is a pond eighteen feet square, with
about two feet depth of water. It bj
any means trout escape fron. the
troughs, they cannot get beyond the
pond, and the room is ample for keep
ing millions until they are two or three
inches long. From this pond the wa
ter passes into the main stream. The
hatching house and troughs, though
not extensive, are fulfilling the highest
anticipations i f their persevering and
enterprising proprietor The bottom
of the trough is covered with small,
clean gravel, over which the water
passes by gentle flow.
Thus prepared, they are ready for
the reception of the impregnated
spawn, which are spread evenly over
the gravel by a dextrous movement
of the water, the spawn not being
touched or allowed to come in contact
with anything hut the water and gravel.
1 mpregnated spawn sink to the bottom,
in water running with considerable
force, and will remain stationary,
if undisturbed, until the j'oung fish
begin their efforts for a release from
confinement. In from fifteen to twen
ty-six days after the spawn is deposited,
the young fish are discernible with the
naked eye. —<S</racu*e Journul.

Tho city ut Dublin possesses ut the
ptesent moment tin- youngest criminal
and prisoner in the world. In Rich
mond Bridewell is not this the prison
from which Head Centre Stephens
escaped —there is now immured a
criminal three and a hotf yeursotd ! Wo
venture to think the prisons of Europe
may be searched in vain for an incar
cerated offender of equal age with that
ot the Dublin delinquent. The story,
as told by the Dublin papers, is as
strange. Last Saturday, it seems, two
children were arrested and brought
before a magistrate at a Dublin police
office, charged with what is grandilo
quently called 'soliciting alms' vulgar
ly termed begging. The elder was a
girl eight years old, the other was a
hoy, an infant, aged three years and a
halt. The charge, the solemn charge,
was proved, and magisterial justice
delivered its decree. That decree was
that 'the girl should be imprisoned in
a penitentiary tor fourteen days and
kept at hard labor; and that ttu l>oy,
poor little mite, should he confined for
!in equal length of time in -Richmond
Bridewell, and likewise kept to hard
libor. ihe question arises, what
would be considered hard labor l'or a
child three and a half years old ?
in Original Jake.
On 1 uesdaj' afternoon, while the
citizens of the 11th precinct in Balti
more wore in tho midst ol excitement,
at the polls, an old and well known
rebel made his appearance, for the first
time since the commencement of the
slaveholders' rebellion, and attempted
to put in a rebel ballot. The reb in
question has the misfortune to he 'cross
eyed,' so much so that when lie chanced
to look at the sky for the polar star,
his eyes, to an observer, would be ap
parently fixed on the Sout hern constel
lation . As the old reb was about to
take the required oath, a Union man,
an inveterate wag, sang out,
•I object to that man's vote!'
'Upon what grounds?' inquired the
'Because he's not natural-eyes edV
The bystanders saw the 'point' of
the joke at once, and greeted the old
reb with 'jeers and jibes,' which non
plussed him to such an extent that he
lett the polls in disgust, and of course
iost his vote The 'conservative' who
related the above circumstance to our
informant, is a man (among the lew
in Baltimore) whose veracity is un
te'" The Democrats say they want
a flag with thirty-six stars on it.—
W here could they have found it if the
eleven stars that were dropping out
had not been pinned to their places by
Union bayonets? And yet the Dem
ocrats objected to the pinning process.
