NEW YORK HERALD. JVew York. Wednesday, August a, IMS. TJie Administration of Mr. Polk uid IU foes. One t >f the most active and efficient troubles with winch Mr. Polk lus to contend in the administration of public a/Fairs, is the hostility, secret and other wise, that springs up in the ranks of his own party* and is created by the disappointment of the various ?iit/iHM by whose temporary union his election whs produced. Since his accession to power, *theae <{iq%n* h ive annoyed him in various ways, in con* ., m r of his being under the necessity of putting hi ?.U<1 hand upon several of their nests, and of scattering the occupants who had so nicely feathered them with the spoils of the government for years ! n . Ir I oik had to break up the remnant of the kitchen ( abinet. He had to put an end to the dynasty of the Globe, all of which things will re-act in certain directions upon the prosperity of his ad ministration All these and othT c/tqties are operating secretly and preparing in every possible way for the coming session of Congress. One of the most amusing sources of the opposition to Mr. Polk is the remnant of Tylerism. It is very well known that Captain Tyler held out against the nomination of Mr. Polk as well as that of Mr Clay until he was under the necessity of taking one side or t he other. In order to save his friends in office after he and those who made up the Tyler party had con suited together, it was agreed that he should yield to Mr. Polk, under the expectation, that in case of l.is e.ecnon. Mr. Tyler and his friends would rrcunv the position to which they believed they were en tttlecl. Nothing, however, showed Mr. Tyler's weakness more conclusively than the efforts and in strumentality he displayed in the# attempt to or gan.z- apart^ They were made by his agents in New York, Philadelphia, Boston, Buffalo, and other places, and alPof them were more or less abortive Immediately on Mr. Polk's accession to office, the first thing he did was to sweep away those office-holders and offices, which had been ap pointed or created during the Tyler dynasty under the idea of organizing a partv for the' Secession. There were, we believe, a num ber of "secret agencies" established, contrary to law. by Mr. Tyler, and attached to the Post Office and Treasury Departments. Persons were appoint ed to these offices and paid liberally, their duty be "XCept 10 "o<rni?e a partv for Mr. Tvler. Now, Mr. Polk abolished all these offices Mr. Walker, the Secretary of the Treasury ' promptly dismissed those attached to his department ' 1 and amongst them, Louis F.Tdsistro.stationed on the ' lrontier. and T N. PamHee, at Buffalo, with others ' at one fell into private life, from the fat and rich ! places , into which they hid been so comfortably in ' ducted under Mr. Tyler. Many of the regularly ap-' 1 pointed Tyler men were also removed to make way ' for the friends and supporters of Mr. Polk Indeed from the inauguration of Mr Polk up to the preseni time, we believe that two-thirds of the Tyler men appointed irregularly to secret offices, or in the way of public business, to public offices, have been re. moved by Mr I'olk. A general wail has, of course been raised in the remnant of the Tyler partv, that is amusing and laughable in the extreme We un derstand that both John Tyler, Sr., and John Tyler Jr together with ?? Captain Bob," as he is usually' called, and will probably be known in history, are particularly abusive and denunciatory of the Presi dent, as being treacherous, and every thing, also t hat is bad in a political sense. If the strength of the Tyler party, as .t existed in the days of lohn Tyler, were equal to its bitterness and malevolence towards Mr. Polk and his administration, thev might be able to do something But their impofen cy and imbecility, and utter inefficiency, are well known to all politicians, be they whigs or demo A philosophical history of John Tyler's fortune and misfortunes of his good and bad acts-of his weak and silly doings, and his wise and pa triotic actions and policy? has not yet been written We are enabled, however, from our connection w itli that dynasty, to give some very curious and in teresting sketches, and we have no reason to have any friendship or goodwill towards them, for they have b^en not only faithless and treacherous, bui malevolent in the meanest and smallest way. In o der to point out, some one of these days, as a bea con to Mr. Polk, the faults and follies of the admin istration of his predecessor, we shall commence some curious, original, and amusing disclosures of the Tyler dynasty during the few brief years thev were in power. During that period we had a variety of correspondents, public and private, at Washing ton, and both John Tyler and Robert Tyler and many of their partizans, will be the subjects of 'hese disclosures, and the whole will be exposed in the full l-ngth and breath to the American people, in or der to enable them to see all the lights and shadows of that singular anomaly in our Government? the dynasty of John Tyler and his party, accompanied with philosophical and practical reflections, that wil' b - useful readm. toalJ parties, and particularly to the present administration. Astou.ndi.no .Discovery of the Tribute? Ol'R views o\ Slavery. ? The Tribune of yesterday is q'lite in ecstacies because it has discovered what it irtects to term two glaring contradictions in our columns. One ol our extracted items referred to the oppression of the landed proprietors in Ehgland Well, with regard to that there is no contradiction at all. A (act was merely stated that the soil ot England has been gradually falling into the hands Of a few. So is has ; and we do not at all deny that in Encland the greatest destitution exists amongst the poor. Terrible evils exist in that country ? s ich as no Fourier philosopher can point out here. But the Tribune also points out an item which charges the decrease in the white |>opulation ot Charles county, Md., to what is designated the "simoon influence" ot slavery. Well, certainly we acrve with the Tribune that the Herald was not a fitting place for the publication of such a senti ment, and our item-collector must take better can in future and not admit such fanatical and ri diculous sentiments as that to be transferred to our columns. We have nothing to do with anti-slaverv doctrines, as is pretty well known. We believe thai l ie colored races of the South are in n happy, peace ful, and proper condition? as happy as the happiest races ?n the earth, possessing in tact a lien upon th?* soil which is in the hands of their masters and mis tresses as trustees for their benefit. The black races arc destined to di' appear and fade away before the superior Anglo-Saxon race, just as the red men of this continent are disappearing. But the negroe* of the south enjoy a state of happiness and comfort Their free brethen in the North are, on the con trary, in a miserable condition These are our sentiments, and we care not who knows them. The Press and the Pulpit.? We perceive that the able and interesting lectures on the distinctive tenets of the Catholic Church, delivered by the Rev I>r. Pise, of this city, some months since, and report ed by us in this journal, have been copied extensive ly in the French newspapers. This shows, what we haw no often insisted upon, the powerful aid which a well-conducted press can render the pulpit. Dr. Pise preached to a few thousand people in Barclay street, but we i?nve him an audience of tens of thou sands, both in this and the old world. What have wr. < 1 ? The streets are ns dir \y as ever? the pavements worse than ever? the Municipal Police as bad as the old police? the cab men as disorderly? th" omnibus-drivers ns unruly and dangerous? th^ taxes as high, if not higher? t he whole condition of the city as respects its r(r. vernment appears to be getting worse and worses Pray, what have we gained ? Is there never to b> any remedy1? Mrs. Carroll's Vapor Baths in Broadway, near the Hospital, are especially worthy of the j.a tronape of all who regard their health at this season The best cure tor colds, and an admirable preventior ot the diseases incidental to the season. Tat sm Ntws rust Mtxico will be very inter eating It will be received by the way of New Or leans by the 44 Water Witch," which was to have sailed from Vera Cruz about the first instant. It will be recollected our las, dates brought the news down to the 22d of July from Mexico, dn the day after, the Secretary of State, or Secretary ot War, according to recent documents published a few days since, was to send in a communication to Congress, equivalent to a declaration of war. Now the question is, how long will Congress tiike to deliberate on such a commu nication ! Will they close upon it at once, or will they allow it to lay over under consideration ? It is highly probable that it will be passed upon at once by both Houses of Congress, and the whole power given to the Executive to make war in the best way he can. If a delay of a few days, however, take place, common sense, and common prejudice, may lead to an entirely different result. But the chances are in favor of war. The state of parties in Mexi co, is such as to induce the belief that every faction will be fierce for war. It will be seen from this brief view, that the next news from Mexico will be deeply interesting, and will, in all probability, lie conclusive of peace or war. It war take place, it is indeed hard to say when or where it may end It may produce a gene ral war throughout the civilized world, and in ac cordance with this opinion, we find the Allowing in the London Timet of the 31st ot July last : " Texas, independent anil protected, might have been as a wiill of brans between t lie ambitious encroachments of the north and the leverish disorder* of central Ameri ca. It may now be the baltle-tield of two nations, two characters. It majr be the scene of a piratical and pre datory warfare between oue nation most unprincipled in its aims, and another most reckless iu its revenge. The cupidity and liceuse of all nations, sick of peace and or lor, may guther under the two hostile Mags, and make Texas the point of their horrible collision. Should such bethelamentbblerusult.it will prove the wilfulness of the Te.\an decision, as well as the wisdom of tbe Euro pean mediators." No doubt there is much truth in this view ot the cai-e. War between the United States and Mexico on this Texas question, in connection with Califor. nia and Oregon, may lead to a general war amongst the nations of the world, which may la?t for half a century, and not terminate till an entirely new or der of things Be introduced iu the governments of Europe. ? The Oregon Question in a New Shape ? Inde pendent Government Established There ?We publish in thiscky's Herald a very interesting letter, written by one of the most respectable and influen tial settlers in Oregon, descriptive of the progress ind prospects of that territory, and communicating ihe important intelligence of the establishment of an independent government. It is provisional, to be sure, and simple and unpretending enough, but still it is a decided and successful effort to found an inde l>endent system of government and laws. The de tails which Mr. Burnett has given of the manner in which these inceptive measures of the settlers have been taken, are amusing and interesting in the ex" treme It will be perceived that the same bold, de. termined, and intelligent democratic spirit, which has for the last half century been adding territory after territory to this great confederacy, and redu cing them to a state of peace and order, is actively at work in Oregon and with the same gloriou? results. This course of procedure on the part ot the Ore gon settlers, will set aside the claims both of the L nited States and England, and leave to those who inhabit the territory the exclusive right to govern themselves and possess^thtir land in peace. They are last increasing in numbers and strength, and we doubt not will soon form a constitution and perma. nent form of government, under it possessing the whole of the territory from the Russian line up to the border of California. In this way, they will be enabled in a very few years to decide what they shall do with themselves, just as Texas has decided And this will, indeed, be the best method of settling tiie Oregon question, la?ving Great Britain and the United States alike with the right of interference. Such a settlement of the Oregon question is proba. bly that contemplated by the genius and foresight of Mr. Calhoun, when he advised a "masterly inacti vity" in one of his speeches, delivered some years ago. If this new government organize itself, as it seems to have the elements of cohesion and strength, establishing laws all over the territory and managing its own afTairs, what right will either the United States or Great Britain have to interfere ? Thus the whole question may be settled without the slightest opportunity of collision between England and this country, or any attempt on the part of either to take possession ot any portion of a territory to which, in hese circumstances, they could not ^advance the slightest claim. The Anti-Renters. ? So interesting has been the movement in Delaware that we have despatched a special reporter to the scene. The first of his com munications appears in our columns to-day. He must, however, remain there a few days before he can collect much information, when he may be ena bled to give a correct and comprehensive view o' the whole matter. This anti-rentistn is one of the iuuen of the day, fanned into importance by politicians and such jour nalists as those of the Tribune and other kindred piints throughout this State, who use this insurrec tionary spirit as a weapon wherewith to break down the present Mate of qpciety and introduce the mil lennium. No doubt this anti-rentism will increase instead of diminish. As a proof of this, we may notice the appearance of an anti-rent i>aper, the first numaerol which has reached us. It is published at Albany, by Mr. Divver, an English radical, who took part in the insurrectionary movement there that nearly ended in revolution. He arrived here some years ago, and has b|fcn very active in dissemina ting agrarian doctrines in Van Rensselaer couuty. He evidently knows nothing accurately of the state of society or government in this country, although lie possesses considerable talent and is a complete agitator in a natural way.

A somewhat curious ease wa* disposed of by Justices Downing and Church, ? day 01 two since, in which a man nameil John Kanally was ar raigned, to show causc why he should not become res ponsible to the county fjr certain expense* likely to lie incurred, in consequencc of the " peculiar situation" ol a Miss KlizubeOi Kanally, who chur/ed that John's gal lantry was the occasion of her sad predicament. John stoutly denied the soft impeachment, but the magis trates decided that he was guilty, and gave hiin the choice of marrying the complainant, or going to prison lie preferred the Tatter alternative, and was committed in default of procuring bail in the sum ot $;>00, to hoUl the people harmless in the premises.

Brooklyn is subjected to the nuisances of distilleries and their concomitant evils, swill carts, to a much great erexte.it, (in the latio of population.) than New York . and they are the more intolerable, because they are sit uated in the very heart of the city ; and some of the streets are continually blocked up hy the teams ot ?cores of cow-keepers and plg-teederi, who carry on bu siness in tne counii y ; so much so, as frequently to en danger the live* ami limbs of persons who ride and drive in those sections of the city V few weeks ago, a much respected resident ol Kiatbush was killed by coming in contact with one of these ponderous vehicle- ; and a lew days since Mr Owen Colgan. one of the most esteemed citizens of Brooklyn, was upset in his wagon, while li ding with a friend, in consequence of being jammed in between two swill carts.

This ?y? tem of "segregation" frequently give* rise to strange and oftimes funny accidents. The proverb saya they occur in the best regulated families. Why not here' Vour readers must have a specimen. Not many nights since, a gallant. gaylLothario, of some note in the world of fashion, who had supped late with friends, and im bibed bumper after bumper ol Champaigne, reeled home with head elevated, and spirits mercurial. While trip ping along.it was the "witching hour of night, "be carrol led a merry air, and pulled a light cigur. Without much note of his location, having happily arrived at that state in which the perceptions are not very clear, he entered the first apartment he came to, extinguished his light obtained in the passage, and throwing himself down, resigned himself to the influence of the sleepy god Scarce half an hour elapsed, when the door softly open ed?a light step was heard? a hand of charming white ness clasping in jewelled fingers a burning taper, an nounced the presence of a lovely woman! The tapei was quietly deposited on the toilet bureau, and the fail creature proceeded to prepare herself for her light slum bers. ? * ? ? Before dimming the taper, she proceeded with delicate feminine exactitude to arrange her couch, when, oh, horror! the sight that met her view struck dismay and terror to her soul. There lay, iu sleepy insensibility, al lull length, a " horrid male creature," quite unaware of her presence. What was to be done I Scream, of course! It was very faint, though. Fright had, no doubt, de prived her of her facul'ies. The gentleman awoke ? s arled up? astonishment depicted on his countenance? for lie was a bashful man. " What brought you into my apartment I" exclaimed the lady, almost breathless with fright. "Dear mudam, I? 1? upon my? I? upon ray? honor and ?a? soul? 1? don't know? quite an accident -I assure you." " Oh, oh ! what shall I do ?" exclaimed the lady. "Think of my situation? think of my situa tion !" "said the gentleman. " Do go," laid the lady, al most ready to faint. " I will," said the gentleman. But" ? and seeing she was about to swoon ? ne benevolently in sinuated his arm round her waist, solely to prevent her I from falling, while, seeing her ruby lips unclose? no doubt for the purpose of screaming? and fearing she would, compressed his own to hers, to stifle the murmur, with a fervent assiduity, worthy of all praise. " Oh, sir! unhand me? the door's unlocked? we may be discovered ?and?" " Dear madam, let me amend the defect by turning the key," murmured the gentlemen. Jint at this moment a stray waiting-maid, straggling through tho en try, and hearing voices, stepped in to see what was want ed. The gentleman decamped, quite sobered by his ad venture, while Cupid split his sides with laughter, and shaking with extacv, split his whole quiver of arrows. The news from Mexico received by the Herald in ad vance of all other papers, has created a great excitement among our fashionables, while old gentlemen and mili tary olficers form themselves into groups for the purpose of discussing the merits of tho case. There, in a distant corner of the drawing of the United States, we saw this morning two gallant sonB of Mars, who teemed perfectly happy while reperusing the documents? their dreamt are alone ot balls, blunderbusses, cannon, seiges, battles, invasions, booty, and fame.

Later from Texas. ? The steamer McKirn, Phil lips, from Galveston, (reported in forty-six hours,) arrived last night. We have received Galveston paper* to the 5th instant, inclusive. The latest intelligence ot the proceedings of the convention, we find in the letter* of the Austin correspondent of the Civilian, the latest ol which is dated the *J6th ult On the 19th, the article relative to the Kxecutive De partment was adapted in Committee' of the Whole, and ordeied to be eugrossed, after being amended by strik ing out the claase requiring the Governor, if not a citi zen of Texas at the time of the adoption of the constitu tion, to be a native citizen of the United States, by the insertion of an additional section providing tor the elec tion of a Lieutenant Governor, and by providing that the Secretary of State be appointed by the Governor and Se nate, and that the Treasurer and Comptroller be elected by the legislature in joint ballot, instead of being chosen by the people. The article on the Legislative Department was then taken up, and the greater part of four days was consum ed in debating the propriety of making clergymen ineli gible to a seat in the legislature. The section containing the provision to that effect was retained by a majority ol seven. The section providing that the basis of repre sentation should be the qualified electors, was amended by substituting therefor the basis of white population, hut subsequent to the adoption of this amendment, the subject was referred to a select committee, and it was expected the committee would recommend a mixed ba sis of population and territory. An attempt to provide lor the removal of the seat ot government, previous to I860, was unsuccessful, a majority of the convention vo ting in favor of the provision which retains it at Austin until that period. The convention adopted tho mode of appointing judges recommended by the Committee on the Judiciary De partment, namely : by the Governor and Senate. The American Hag. the correspondent of the Civilian states, floated daily over the Convention Hall. We regret to learn, says the Netvt of the 1st instant, that W. T. Smith, Ksq , American Consul at Matagorda, was washed from his horse and drowned, a lew days since, in attempting to pass the Bayou between Indian Point and Pass Cavallo. The Jlfutton Telegraph, after mentioning the improve ment and rapidly increasing trade of Corpus Cnristi, states that " the marauding party, under the command of Leal, has not been seen for a long time, and it is su|> posed that he has been driven into some one of the Mexi can garrisons by the traders, or that he has been recalled by order of Arista. It is said that Arista has expressl} lurtiid his subalterns molesting the Texan frontiers. He is now at Monterey, and has only about a thousand troops under his immediate command. He has exprossed much di- satisfaction with the present^state of Mexico ; but it is believed that he is not disposed to take any ictive measures against it at present. The Presidential election being near at hand, he probably expects by his influence, to tecure the election of his favorite candi date, and trust to him to remedy the evi's of which he now complains. The people in the valley ot the Hie Giande, are generally indifferent whether Texas be an nexed to the United States, or remains independent vlany of the citizens of Matamoras are decidedly in fa vor of annexation. and it is stated that some of the offi cers in command have declared that they would prelei to see Texas in the possession of the United States. The troops along the whole line of the Uio Grande are in a very destitute condition. The government is to poor that it can scarcely furnish them with provisions neces sary for their tuhsistenco, and little or no clothing has lieen furnished to them for months." The Comanche Indians continuo to be friendly. The Trbgrajih states that three of the I hiefs visited Bexar about the 'J0th ult , and stated that their people were de sirous of renewing the treaty of peace. '1 hese Chiefs be longed to the Western bands of Comanchcs, residing near the sources ol the Guadeloupe, which band have a treaty of peace with the I.ipans, and have intermarried with them. About the liith, n party of twenty hostile In liana made nn unsuccessful attempt to (teal some horses from Cedar Creek, about ten miles west of Bar trop. were immediately pursued, but not overtaken. ? Their trail was discovered leading towards the Guada loupe, and it was supposed they had fled to the moun tains. Another small party, supposed to be Wacoes lately passed down the Guadeloupe as far as Victoria, and killed some rattle near that town. The sloop , Olive Branch arrived at Galveston on the ?th instant from l orpus Chiisti. She reported the revenue cutter Woodbury to be at Decrowns Point on the 6th, awaiting the arrival of Major Donelson, who was houily expected, when she was to sail for iNew Or leans. The Olive Branch also reported the United States troops on St Joseph's Island, ana that the steamer Mon mouth had left for New Orleans on the 4th. The steam er Dav ton left Galveston on the 6th, for Corpus Christi, under chaiter to convey the troops to the main land ? I'ho U.

The fire caught in the drying room, and is supposed to have originated from spontaneous combustion. The Vigilant Kire Companv of the city crossed the liver and rendered great service in protecting ttie auriounding pro|ierty. A large brick dwelling house, adjoining the factory, was in mu 'h dan ger, but through the exertions of the firemen and citi zens it escaped. A member of the Vigilant Kire Com pany had one of his lingers torn off" by the machinery. The drought ptill continues with increased inten sity.

City lateUlftftM* Watte i* thc Sack twirccTofc ?? Hating torn* curi osity to know why impositions practised by hack and oab-drirers are becoming to frequent, we yesterday morning, in walking around the Park, took the trouble to look into ererj one of the hacks and caba standing on Broadway ami Park Row, to tee whether they complied with tho regulations, which requires that the rates of tare should be posted up iu a couspn uous place. There were, in all, forty-one hacks and cabs around tho Park, and in not a single one of them were seen the rates ol fare at all. Several of them were without numbers. Why is this ? Why does not our Hack Inspector look in to this matter, and see that the wholesome regulations of the law are complied with ? It is useless to pass laws for the protection of our citizens and strangers from im position, if 'he officers appointed for their enforcement thus neglect their duty, and leave citizens and strangers to the mercy of the hack drivers. When the rates of fare are not to be seen, the driver charges what price he pleases, and gets all he can. Will our Hack Inspector take a look around the Park, and see whether we are correct ? Pa** Fountain. ?Yesterday morning, the basin of the Park Fountain was drawn oil for the purpose of shovel ling away the mud that rests on the bottom. Twas too baa to disturb the frogs and tad-poles that were resting there iu unconscious security, but it was done by the present Park keeper, who by the way, io the best one we have ever had. But when are we going to have a mar ble basin, and " them seats ?? Kcho answers " whenl" Anoi (ikh Moc:* Auction Cask. ? Yesterday forenoon, us Vr. James Green, fresh from the laud of steady habits - a gentleman entirely uninitiated in the mysteries of this great city, and not having been reared in a land where the Herald shed its benign influences upon the in habitants?ignorant of the tricks upon travellers prac ticed in New York, was sauntering up Chatham street, feasting his eyes on the brass watches and rings, and the glass diamonds tha' glisten in the windows or the Jews, his ears were saluted, from one of the mock auction shops, with the musical cry of " going, going? this beau tiful lot of property lor ten cents a-piece." Mr. (ire en entered, and beheld upon the counter of the auctioneer, a sight that made his eyes glisten. There were several pistols, beautiful silver watches, whole cards of pearl Handled knives, silver pencils, and other articles too nu merous to mention, ana all "going for ten cents a-piece." Mr. Green thought here was a bai gain, and upon his sug gesting that there was more than he wanted, a gentle man by his side kindly offered to take half of them him self. The auctioneer thought they would all amount to about $8. and so Mr. Green and his friend bid eleven cents. They were knocked down to him, and he was very politely invited iuto a back room, whero Mr. Green handed the auctioneer a $5 bill, for his half of the goods, expecting a dollar change. After pocketing this, howe ver, the auctioneor coolly presented to him a bill of $06, hit halt being $48. Mr. Green refused to pay this, and demanded his $6, which the auctioneer would not re turn. Finally, by threats and bullying, they succeeded in getting from Mr. Green the sum of $15, and gave him in return a block tin watch and a card of German silver pencils. Upon his issuing from the shop, a gentleman, who had witnessed the swindling operation, recommend ed Mr. Green to complain to the Mayor, which he did, when his Honor promptly despatched an officer, who compelled the restoration of the money. Much credit is due our worthy Mayor for the determination which he evinces to break up these rascally swindling shops. Si u toK at Statkn Island.- Yesterday morning the body of a man was found in the woods belonging to Dr. Westervelt, back of Mr Moffat's Pavillion, at the qua rantine on Stateu Island. A pistol, which, however, was loaded, was found by his side. As this fact appeared ra ther suspicious, no verdict was rendered by the Coro ner's Jury. In his pockets were found a hunch of keys and 19 cents. His stockings are marked O. S. W. He had on check pantaloons, a tweed coat, blue silk vest, noois, hqq u now rauaiiiH iihi. Drowned. ? A young man belonging to this city, uam "(1 .lame* W. McBarren, went, on the 18th, to Long Branch, Montgomery county. If. Jersey, and stopped at Samuel Cooper's boarding house. Soon after his arrival he expressed a desire to bathe, but the ngem for Samuel Cooper, Mr Levi S. Sutphin, and J. McBarren, his uncle, endeavored to dissuade him fiom going, telling him that the sea was not fit to bathe in. He would not, how ever, listen to their advice, and went in in spite of all their entreaties Soon after, a report of his having been ' drowned was brought to the house, and everything was done to recover his body, but, notwithstanding all their j effort*, they have not yet been successful. No blame can be attached to Mr. Sutphin, as he, and the young man's uncle did every thing in their power to prevent j him from venturing into the water. The deceased had a 'ainily living in this city, whom he leaves to mourn his loss. Coroner's OrricK ? August 19 ?

The tusks are over nine feat long. Across the hip bonas he measures about seven feet. The position of the animal at death, was clearly discernible. He had evidently be come mired, and had settled down on his haunches, wltn his fore legs spread out, and in this posture he was found. Under the vertebra, the contents of his stomach were found to the amount of several bushels, and con sisted of leaves, twigs anu fragments of the branches of trees, crounched and broken up.
