West of the Capital.
Notes from Placentia Bay.

Capt. Carroll arrived here on Wednesday night last from Placentia Bay in the schooner Nonpariel, with a three-parts cargo of fish for Job Brothers & Co. The captain left Oderin last. He has been in different harbors round the Bay collecting fish, and visited Placentia, Paradise and Petite Forte. At the latter place he was speaking to Capt. Joe Brown, in the 90-ton Gloucester schooner Carrie M. Babston, who is now in the Bay for his third load of herring. Capt. Joe is high liner so far, having taken to Gloucester already this winter one load of herring from Bonne Bay and a load also from Placentia.

The people in the Bay are delighted with the good result of the American treaty in herring so far, and the amount of money thereby put into circulation has warded off the bad times that would otherwise prevail. Capt. Carroll takes a freight from Harvey & Co.’s, for Geo. Knwoling, Esq., to Placentia Bay next week, and will then go to Placentia and outfit for the Gulf seal fishery, sailing from Channel with a crew of 12 men. We wish him as full a measure of success as his pluck and daring deserve.
