CEMMAES. REMARKABLE INSTINCT IN SALMON.âA gentleman stop- ping at the Peniarth Arms Hotel, Mallwyd, vouches for the-veracity of the following remarkable instance of in- stinct in the finny tribe :-On Saturday morning he was fishing in a well-known part of the Dovey, near the hotel, and heoked a female fish weighing about lOlbs. He played sher about a quarter of an hour, and succeeded in getting her into shallow water. When playing her in about fifteen inches of water, a male salmon came into the shallows, and getting under the female fish lifted her out of the water, endeavouring to unhook her. This attempt being unsuccessful, he returned into the deep water, and in a few minutes came back with another male fish. The two renewed their efforts to free the female fish, and not being successful the pair sailed back again into the pool, and returned with a third fish. The continued efforts of the three not being successful, the hooked fish being lifted out of the water several times, the three salmon swam away into the deep water, leaving the female fish to her fate. The gentleman played her for another ten minutes and afterwards, with the assistance of a farmer, who was 'ooking on, landed her with a I I gaff. ,-Communicated.
