Fun with a Spider.
Spiders, in many respects, arc just
like other animals, and can he tamed
and petted, and taught a great many
lessons, and which they will learn us
readily as a dog or cat, But you
must take the trouble to study their
ways, and get on the good side of
ihchi. One day 1 had been reading
in a book how spiders managed to get
their webs across streams and roads,
and from the top of a till tree to
another. I went out and caught n
large garden spider?one ot those
blue graw sprawling fellows, and fixed
him up for my experiment. I took a
stick about eighteen inches in length,
and fastened a piece ol iron to one
end of it, so that the stick would
stand upon that end of itself. Then I
pat this in the center of a large tub
half full of water, and placed the
spider on top of the Stick; I wanted
to sec if it could get to "land," which
was the edge of the tub, without any
help. Ho ran down first one bide the
stick and then the other. Each time
he would stop when he touched the
water, and shaking his foot as the cat
docs would run upagam. A t last ho
came to the concl jsion that ho was
entirely surrounded by water?on an
island in fact. After i cmai iiing pi?r
fcetly quiet for a long while, during
which, 1 have no doubt, he was arrang
ing his plans, he begun running
around to the top of the stick, and
throwing out great coils of web with
bis hind feet. Jn a few minutes little
fine strings of web were floating in the !
siignt hroe/.emat was mowing. Atter
a liMle, one of these threads touched
the edge of the tub, and stuck fast, as
all spider webs will do. This was just
what air. .Spider was looking for, and
the next minute he took hold of bis
web, and gave a jerk as a sailor dues
with a rope when he wishes to see how
strong it is, or make it fast. Having
satisfied himself that it was fast at the
other end, he gathered it in till it was
tight and straight, and then ran on it
to the shore?a rescued castaway.?
An Englishman and a frenchman
fought a duel, in summer time; aud
not to make the act public, and the
better to satisfy their conscience in
case of the result proving fatal they
agreed to fight in a darkened room
The Englishman, unwilling to take
his antagonist's life generously fired
up the chimney?and brought down
the Frenchman. "When I tell this
story in French,' pleasantly added
the narrator, "I make tho English man
go up the chimney."

New York, January 0.?The
latest reporis regarding the Bennett

the attention of the public. lie did
not know where the combat would be
fought, tho arrangements being left,
.to his friends, Mr. 8. JI. Robert son.
[Mr. Fred. May, of Baltimore in the
meantime arrived as second, and
with Mr- Robertson, the terms of
meeting or details ol lime and place,
and weapons, etc., were arranged.
The place selected was Slaughter
Station, Kent County, Delaware, not
far from the > aryland line. This
region is very sparsely settled. Mr.
May offered to provide a brace ol
duelling pistols and his oiler was ac
On Friday night Mr. Bennett,
effectually disguised, returned from
Boston, pnssed hurriedly through
New York, and took the night train
on the Pennsylvania Railroad, hav
ing been joined by his second and by
Dr. Charles Phclps, who went in the
capacity surgeon. They went to Balti
more, where they received a letter
from Mr. Fred May, of that city,
containing formal announcement to
the second of the Bennett party of the
preciso time and place. The parties
'arrived at Slaughter Station yester
day morning, and the duel was fought
at two o'clock in an open space iu the

Hennett stood for a moment holding
his still smoking pistol almost in the

and examined his wound, lie thought
it would not prove fatal, but was of
such a nature as to prevent hint from
having an equal chance with his
antagonist at a second shot.- T he
wound was iu the leg. Mr. Bennett
and his parly immediately returned
to Philadelphia, and May was carried
to '.he house of a relative.
Later?Bennett't Suroeon in
New Yohk, January 10.?Dr.
Charles Phclps, who was connected
with the May-Bennett duel, was sub
poenaed before the grand jury to-day
by the district attorney to testify con
cerning it. lie refused to answer
any questions, on the ground that he
would criminate himself, and being
brought before Judge Gildersleevo in
the Court of G cneral Sessions and
still refusing, he was committed to the
city prison for thirty days for con
tempt of court.
The counsel for Dr. C. Phclps ap
plied to Judge Donahue of the
Supreme Court for a writ of habeas
corpus. The petitioner says he was
subpoenaed before the grand jury and
asked to answer certain questions
tending to show that he was cogniz
ant of Fotne alleged crime which had
occurre d out of the jurisdiction of this
court, which he refused to answer,
and was committed for alleged con
tempt of court. That the grand jury
had no jurisdiction to inquire into tho
matter, because the answer to their
questions would tend to expose him
to prosecutions in another State for
felony, wherefore he prays for a writ
of habeas corpus, &c. Judge Dona
hue granted the writ and made it re
turnable in the Supreme Court Th?rs
day morning. The following are the
questions asked by the grand jury :
"On leaving New York on Sunday
did you sec James Gordon Bennett?"
"Where did you last see him V "Did
you know of any hostile meeting hav
ing occurred between Mr. Bennett
and Mr. May ?" "After leaving Now
York Sunday, when and where did
you sec Mr. Bennett?" "At whose
request or intervention did you leave
New York on Sunday?"
How Ben Hill Looks.
Mr. Hill is now fifty-three years of
age, is a Georgian by birth, and a
man of fine personal apcarance, being
above the average height, lithe and
sinewy, without any appearance of
leanness. He has a square face, large,
steady glancing, blue-eye.?, a thin
lipped, firm set mouth, the upper lip
cleanly shaven always, with a full,
clipped beard. His hair is rather
bristling and slightly wavy, standing
up and hack from his forehead, and
is, together with his whiskers, of a
yellowish brown color, with a small
bald spot on the crown. He possesses
an exceedingly pleasant almost musi
cal voice, and is graceful and easy iu
gcslicu'ation. The most character
istic point connected with bis personal
bearing in tho peculiar manner in
which he habitually carries his head,
which he docs by (hopping his chin
ahnest upon his breast, and looking
up and out from under his eyebrows.
This he docs alike in walking and sit
ting, hut when speaking ho throws hu
head up and square Mr. Hill is one
of the most scholarly men iu congress
and is a great lover of books and
home. He is never seen about the
hotel lobbies or roiling around as the
common run of congressmen do, and
he is never absent from the house
whenever any matter of importance
is under discussion, for his peculiar
attitude will always arrest the eye of
the observer as ht> sits somewhere

so that he hears clearly what is g>iu g
