New York, Dec. 20. —A dispatch to the Herald from Washington, says : Sir Julian Pauncefote expressed his sur prise that there should be any difficulty in bringing the Bering sea dispute to ar bitratiyn. "Both Great Britain and the United States," said he, "while dif fering upon the facts bearing up on the question, have a common object which seems susceptible of sub mission to arbitration. The form of submission referred to by the president in his annual message, iB simply an offer upon the part of England to lay the dispute before an arbitrating power. The Bering sea dispute is far less grave than the Alabama claims case, which was submitted to arbitration without friction. What was done so readily then, can surely be repeated no,v if both parties are sincere, which I cannot doubt." A Scramble for l and.

New York, Dec. 20. —Giovanni Succi's fast of forty-five days terminated at 8:15 this evening in the presence of an audience of 400.

From that time until 8:15 pains constantly oc curred, his distress being shown by the contortions of his face and the nervous movements of his bod}'. When cocoa was prepared shortly after 8 o'clock, Succi arose from his lounge and stag gered to the table, looking more like a skeleton than a man. When he lirst sipped cocoa there was a burst of applause from the spectators.

During his fast he drank twenty-one quarts of alkaline water and nine and a half quarts of Cro tin water, besides a little of his elixir, which chemists say contains no nourish ment. Tomorrow afternoon he will take his first dinner. His fast undoubtedly has been an honest one.
