The salmon-fishing season closed in the Tay, and the rivers

North of the Tweed,. on Tuesday the 14th instant. The season, on the whole, has been the worst experienced for many years by the tacksmen; some of whom, we are sorry to understand, have hardly realized the amount paid in wages. Prices continued high to the last; salmon ls. per pound, and grilse 10d.—Perth Courier.

On Sunday the top of Ben Lomond and neighbouring hills were covered with snow.—North British Mail.
