Trinity, June 14. At Heart’s Ease but little fish taken to date. On Thursday and Friday a few large fish were taken in deep water. Veteran fishermen reckon this a favorable sign of a good season’s fishery. At Deer Harbor, British Harbor, and this neighbourhood, generally, not a fish caught.

The Bishop of Harbor Grace, accompanied by father Veitch. arrived last evening, from a visitation of the Bay, in the mail schooner “Louise,” Captain Fardy, and departed immediately overland for King’s Cove
