During a little dispute on Saturday last, between the duckwing and itfl owner the bird succeeded in planting his spiir ^bout half way through the hand of the rooster's proprietor, who not having spurs on bis legs with-drew from the fight. The last invoice of birds came from Clinton, Conn. "A Hugging Bee" was gotten upre-rently in a down the river toivn, for the benefit of a church. The price per hug was fifteen cente, the hugger being blind-folded. All things worked like a oharm, and every one was having a royal time until one married man got hold of his own wife and hugged her for a full fif-teen ccnts wdrih, until the bandage was removed from his eyes. Then he got mad, declared he had been swindled, and wanted his fifteen cents back again. Business at the seed houses is still good altliough not quite as heavy as it happened At tlie bam of Martin Wdis, on Wert Hill, Tuesdny, while a beef, which had been slaughtered, was beiu]; dressed. The beef was hanging upon a scaffold which broke with the w ^ h t , and Willie Wells, a son of Martin Wells happened to be sUndlng direcUy under the beef when the scaffolding gave way. The fall yas broken by the carcass striking upon a lower scaffold, but It fell upon the young man, very severely bruising him over the blps, besides Injuring him about the face and arms. He managed to get into the house and on Thurscby afternoon was able to sit up a few minutes in the b ^ . It was a close call for the young man. All sorts of wild rumors regarding a serious accident to Charles Harris were rife last week, the major part of the ru-mors, however, being pure fiction. Mr. Harris's injuries consisted of abrolten leg. and were caused according to the last report by a kick from an ox. The injuries were serious enough, but it would have been infinitely worse had they been as bad as rumor first stated. Quite a serious accident occurred at Griswoldville on Tuesday, whereby two boys, named respectively Edward ,F. Griswold and Arthur Kilby, fell from a haymow In ihe bam of Leslie Wells, wl^e wrestling, young Griswold having his collar bone broken, and Kilby hav-ing his wrist broken. Both the boys were otherwise injnred by bruisies. An accident which might have had fatal results, happened to Monroe Deming on Monday last, by reason o'* which he was quite badly cut about the face and head. "Tisn't the falling which smashes up a man, its the striking." John Connery met with quite a seri-ous accident on Wednesday while cut-ting up the l a r ^ trees on the meadow land of Mr. Southworth, the axe slipped and inflicted a very severe wound upon the wrist of y .

The committee on claims of the Con-necticut House reported favorably on Tuesday, the bill granting 8fi00 to Mrs. George W.

Several petitions were introduced to the House on Monday hi support of the pro-posed constitutional amendment prohibit' Ing the liquor trafllc. Mr. Ford, of Wash* Ington, said the committee already had decided upon their action, he movM that all further petitions of similar import be laid upon the table. So ordered. Com-mittee will report favorably. Bill providing that all reguhir hearings of applications for pardon shall be at the state prison, was construed by some mem-bers as coming legislative hearings, the legislature having the constitutional right to gr^nt pardons. Mr. Hyde, of Hartford, In order to meet this objection, moved to add the words, after the word pardon, "or for release from state prison beftne the board of pardons."
