--The fishing in Cohoke pond is represented to be better than ever, and the fish are of unusual size. It is only necessary to drop a line to the silver perch and sturdy chubs, to meet with a prompt and ready response. They bite with the courage of veterans, entirely disdaining the timid and doubtful nibble. Cohoke pond is crossed by the York River Railroad, twenty-nine miles east of Richmond; and any disciple of Izaak Walton can take the cars at 8 A. M., arrive there at 9; and have several hours of fine sport before the re-turn of the train.
