Swild beast, that his master was fain
to enter the arena and withdraw him
rom the combat, amid salvos of ap.
plause. The next wild beast that ap
iiared was a sturdy, surly bear,
against whom were launched as many
as thirteen dogs. The enemy was
ow evidently of a more formidable
ind, for the dogs were no longer so
eager to grapple witn the object of
their- attack, but contented them
selves with barking around him in a

The public now loudly called for the
intrepid dog who had mauled the hye
na." Ahis was the first of the pack who
dared to seize the bear with his teeth.
The others imitated his example with
less pluck, but no effect seemed to
be produced by any of the assailants
upon the shaggy beast, and the bra.
vest of them seemed baffled by the
thickness of his coat, which defied
the gripe of his adversaries. The
last act of the spectacle was that
which had more particularly attracted
crowds by railroad to Aranjuez.
The fight was now between a lion and
a null. The first was one of the
finest of his species. No sooner was
he loosed into the arena, and espied
the bull, then he made towards him
at once, and attacked him with fury.
But the lion only succeeded in seiz.
ing the tail of his horned foe, by
which he clung on with his claws.
The bull, thus attacked from behind,
was unable to defend himself by his
horns, but presently, the lion having
bitten his tail close off to the rump,
thie bull turned on him, and frantic
with pain, charged with tremendous
fury, tossing the lion, notwithstanding
it size, into the air, which so damped
ae pluck of the. latter that it became
alli once clear on which side victory
would be declared. The lion sat
dowp. dejected and moaning with pain,
K '~iile the bull charged him several
times 'in succession, instigated by the
crowd outside the grating, more than
by his own will, for as soon as the lion
~was hors de combat, the bull sought
no longer to molest him, and would
h~vo left him alone, but for the stim
*ulation which was applied to him by
the spectators. Thle lion was killed.
A Painuful Case.
An account of a recent trial at the
Old Bailey, in London, Lord Chief
Justice Tindal presiding.
George Hammond, a portrait pain
ter, was placed at the bar, to be tried
on an indictment found against him
by the grand jury for wilful murdler,
witl1 malice aforethought, of George
Baldwin, a rope-dancer and a mounte
bank. The prisoner was a man of

On-being called on to plead, the
prisoner admitted that ho did kill
Baldwin, and he deplored the act, ad
ding, however, that on his 80oul and
donseeience lhe did not L:elieve himself
guilty. Thereupon, a ~jury was em
pannelled to try the prisoner. The
indictment was then read to the jury,
and the act of killing admitted, the
government rested their ease, and

The prisoner then addressed hime
sellf to the court and jury :

Lord Chief Justice Tindal.-These

God to pardon you, ifyou cannot for.
Prisoner.--'I know, my lord, what

Foreman.-"My ford, we have
agreed in our verdict.'
Chief Justice.-'I understand you
gentlemen, but the law must take its
course. I must sum up the case, and
then ycu will retire to deliberate.'
The chief justice having summed
up the case~ the jury retired, and in an
instant after, returned into the court
with the verdict, 'Not guilty.'
On the discharge of Hammond, the
sheriff was obliged to surround
him wvith an escort.-The crowd of
women and mnen was immense. Trhe
womern were determined to carry him
all'in triumph. TIhe crowd followed
tim all the way to his lodgings with

Few insects fall more frequently
.inder our observation than spiders.
WVhether we wander in the forests,
ramble iu the fields, or wvalk in the
gardens, this little creature is before us,
wveaving its delicate web, or slyly
watchinig for its prey. Early ini the
morning, the labor of this industrious
animal may be seen in the multi tude of
silken net-works spread over the grass,
on plant and shrub, and across the un-~
frequented path, all studded with dew.
We are aware that spiders excite
feelings of disgust, and sometimes of
fear, in many piersons; but if' examined
wiha littlte attetion, the-re will be
found in their habits, and connected
with' them, much that is interestinig, and
which maiy well awaketi our adoiriation
und even astonishment. Now, let us
lay aside these antipathies, aind observe
thme wonderful power and skillful work
mnacshiip o'f this interesting little animal.
Behold how lie glides along the ceil
ing, or over the window panes. See
him setndinig Ihis web from tree to tree,
high above our heads, or from banck to
banik across the rapid stream! Now
watch the insect traveller, as lhe hiast.
ens over his ca ble bridge with speed anid
safet y! Next turni aside for a while to
see the skilful workman spreading his I
wheel-like net. Hlis own limbs are
rules and compcasses, to measure the
distances of the spokes anid circles.
WVhen a suitable place has been sc.
lected, the outlines of thme net, or web),
are ormned by fixing threads from leaf
to sprig, anid encircling a considerable
spiace. The outline is text filled up
by lines diverging like spokes to a
wheel. To do this. the spider fastens
a thread to some conivenienit part of the
outlinie, which it then traverses till it
reaches the opposite p'oinit to that where
tihe thread was fastened.
During this process the thread, wvhich
is to bo stretched across the space en.
clnsed, is supported by one of the spi.
der's hind feet, so as to prevent it from
resting otn the thread along which the
spinner walks, and thus becoming glued
to it. WVhen this cross thread has beeni
made fast, the workmnt goes to the
midldle of it, wvhere it fastemns another,
and carries it to the nearest part of the
outlinie, and secures it.
Fromi the same spot it now carries
another thread to the outline, amil then
another, and so on, until twenty or thiir
ty spokes are completed; thena,, proceed
ing to the centre, is IArmis a rimng wvhich
is fastened to each spoke. Outside of
this is placed another ring, and these
are encircled by others, each but a
small space~ from thle other, but increas.
ing in the intervat as the circles ap,
proapih the circumference.
A fler finishing thee circs.th n.

r rettlig to. he centre,. acrd bites fl'
he point a oh 'all the spoksere
united, so as to malt their secu'rity'de
pond on the circular.ythreads alone,
while it renders the .lqtpnore elastic.
In this central position, the insect often
stations itself to watchfor prey, but
,more commonly it retires to a cell which
Ibuilds near the margin of the web,
1id there remains unobserved.
The signal of a capture is commu.
nidifed to its retreat by the vibrations
of the threads from the centre of the
net. When thus informed that any
prey is taken, the spider rushes from its
hiding place and secures its victim.
The thread of the spider like that of
a silk-worm and other catterpillars, is
formed from a glutinous secretion,
drawn out from the body of the insect.
If a spider be minutely examined, sev..
eral teats or spinners, will be observed,
each containing numerous tubes or
From each of these tubes an extreme
ly slender thread proceeds, which- im.
mediately unites with the other threads
from the same spinner. Thus from
each spinner there issues a compound
thread, and these unite into one larger
one, fot ming the thread of the spider's
web. It is estimated that there are
one thousand of these openings, and
that a single spider's thread is composed
of a thousand fibres.
How delicate must be the cordage of
such a thread, and how perfect the in.
struments used in producing it? And
how susceptible of the finest touch must
be the fingers which handle it? Yet
these are none other than the claws of
the spider's feet. With these it guides
and arranges the glutinous threads as
they are drawn from the spinner.
Spiders have eight legs; seven of
these have the lower side of the
claws toothed. These enable the crea.
ture to take hold of any thread, to guide
it, to pull it, to draw it out, or to ascer
tain what it caught in its net, and to
suspend itself from its slender cord at
On the legs and especially on the last
three joints, moveable spines, or spurs,
may be observed. These can be raised
or depressed at the will of the insect,
and are probably used as a kind of
The number of fibres which compose
a single thread contributes greatly to its
strength. Rope-making is an imitation
of the spider's thread. Suspension
bridges, supported by a bundle of small
wires, are also constructed on the same
principle. The ends of the spider's
threads are spread out, and thus made
to grasp more firmly the object to which
it is attached.
The web of the spider is formed by
a double series of spines which are on
the first joint of one pair of feet. These
spines are used like a carding apparatus
in manufactories, the lower series
combing the reeled web from the
spinneret, and the upper series disen.
gaging the web froni them.
The threads, which serve only to
form the web for a ent're to catch its
prey, are very f ragile, and not as strong
as those used to enclose the eggs,
neither are they as strong as those
which are stretched from one point to
another, as the highway of the insect.
It is said, that when spiders become
very old, and the fluid of which their
web is composed is entirely dried up, bo
that they cannot spin, they will go to
the habitation of sonie young spider,
take possession of its web, and drive it
away to weave another.
Spiders are very attentive to their
webs, and often clean the dust from
them by shaking them with their feet.
If .it becomes partly destroyed, they
patiently go at work to repair it. They
are very industrious and persevering.
An interesting auiocdote is rela'ed in the
life of Robert Bruce, who became one
of the kings of Scotland, illustratiung the
perseverance of this creature.
ile had been at the head ofan arnmy

TIh~e glow of morning beamed into
the little chamber where their seven
children lay in their beds asleep.
They then gazed at the children
one by one, andl~ the mother said,
~'hey are sevetn in number; alas! it
will be hard for us to fmtd them food.'
Thtus sighed the mother. For there
was a fatmine ini the land.
