Mr. Leveson had a singular fellow-feeling for insects, -- he studied their habits, and collected specimens of various kinds in bottles, or 'pinned' them on cardboard trays, -- he was an interested observer of the sprightly manners practised by the harvest-bug, and the sagacious customs of the ruminating spider, -- as well as the many surprising and agreeable talents developed by the common flea.
