It api*?nr8 that annexation is as prevalent in that remote region as it is in this part ol the world. This intelligence, at this moment ih rather inte resting, as indicating the usual aggressive spirit of the English, notwithstanding what they have said relative to Texas. The annexation of Natal to the Ca|>e of Good J lope, seems to give a fresh impulse to the philanthro py ot Kngland it is intended to change the name ot black slavery to something less odious in appear ance, but more bindingiin fact. [From Cape Town Gazette Sept. 5.J The long wished-lor settlement of the Natal question has at length been brought about by the annexation of that district to this colony ; and both being now placed under a government of whose energy such ubundunt 1 proofs have already been given, the most favorable te suits may naturally be anticipated. It must be confessed that many and great improve- I ments have been going on of late years, in all intimately connectod with the future well being of this land. Of them we may in particular advert to the extinction of slavery?the establishment of free ports, together with the abolition of all port charges ; the improvement of our roads, and the alliances that have been entered into with the most powerful and intelligent tribes in our im mediate neighborhood?but in our estimation, superior to all these is the junction now so happily being formed between this colony and Natal. It inay therefore be confidently hoped that, by this ex tension of British rule in Kastern Africa, a strong arm will be there forms 1 by establishing an auxiliaiy inter nal power to second the efforts so persevcringly made "by her Majesty's cruisers ou that coast, which wonld thereby tend to tlio protection of tho inland tribes, who aro still left open to the luthless attacks of freebooters tbat infest the Mozambique aud adjacent coast r-who by their nefarious proceedings throw up a barrier, as it were, in the way of our trade with the more inland parts of Central Africa ; but which force, taking into account i the great muss ol population, would be a valuable addi tion to the improvements that have already taken place. As to our own Colony?at a moetiug ol the legislative council on Wednesday last, an estimate of the piobable ; expenditure and receipts for the ensuing year was then > submitted, the former amounting to ?181,14) 13s. fid, and the latter to ? 178,603 ; tho details whereof will be found in the Government Gazette of this day. Fiom tho Minute addressed by the Governor to the members, it will be seen that his F.xcellenc.y purposes | shortly to submit an ordinance for establishing a uniform rs>te ot postage,Jon the principle lately adopted inKngland, It will also l.e noticed that the mail is to be despatched Irom the 1st Jan next, to and from < iraham's Town, twice a week, which will confer considerable benefit to the pub lic, but inahily to tbo mercantile community. And with respect to the Customs, as more immediately connected with commerce and navigation, we are happy to find that, notwithstanding the abolition of Port dues, the re-" venue has beeu from other sources amply compensated. It appears that, on a comparison of the vessels entered In wards for 18 months antecedent to the said abolition, with those entered during a like subsequent period, there has been an increase in favor of the latter of 10? vessels (equal to -17,744 tons) exclusive of those engaged in the guano trade, which have amounted, within the last men tioned period, to 215 vessels of altogether ti0,583 tons. On this highly favorable state of things we see grounds for much congratulation; such relief being nfibrded to ships touching at our ports, will unquestionably lead to their being still more generally; frequented. We cannot pass over the estimate itself without eulo gizing the very able manner in which it has been com. piled. Our local readers we are sure will be highly gra tified ou an attentive perusal thereof, and we aro con vinced that not one of Her Majesty's colonial posses sions can boast of statistical talent of a higher order than is displayed in this laborious and lucid document, [From the Graham's Town Journal, Aug. 21.] Extract of a letter from the Mauritius to Messrs. H. & 11. 8. Blaine of Graham's Town, dated 23rd July :? "We have now to inform you that news has since then been received from Madagascar, to the effect that the Queen had ordered all the ports iu her dominions to be closed ngainst the French and English traders, and that strong bodies of troops were on their way down to each from the capital. Tho trde is therefore lor the present at an end." Late from Sante Fe.?We cony the following front the IndeperuUnce Exjmiter of tlte 25th ult:? " We received advices from Mexico on Wednesday last liy a company just in from the plains. They consist ot our townsmen Messrs. Kaufman and Goldstein, Bean, Peacock, and tour of the Armijo's, (Mexicans,) having with them in all 13 wagons?300 mules and $30,000 in money. They have been 30 days on the road?suffering nono from inclemency of the weather and other hind rances usually experienced by companies going or re turning. Kew if nny Indians were seen on the route ; at least they suffered no molestation from any of the tribes. At the time or shortly before they lift Santa Fe, Com mandant Garcia Conue, whose appointment we noticed some time since and who was expected to come un to the bolder country, had arrived and straightened up matters wonderfully. It is well known that the military is superior to tho" civil authorities in Mexico, and in accordance with this has been liis conduct. The (?r nor, who has usually assisted and expedited matters for the American traders and endeavored to make things fair, was not permitted to exercise his authority. The Commandant required that every yard of goods should go into the Custom House upon entry into the country? and strict examination he made of papers Sic., and that in the event of contiaband goods being discovered?con fiscation of property and imprisonment of person should ensue?such did actually take place with some of our trailers?and all after a delay of eight or ten days and in carceration of some for the space ol 31 or 36 hours, were allowed upon the payment of $9.">0 per wagon, to go on below or open for sale in Santa Fe. Manuel Armijo was appointed Governor and will doubtless exercise his usual efficiency in the manage ment of affairs. Ifsuchisthe case we may look out for squabhlas between himself and the Commandant and probably the expulsion of the tyrannical officer from the upper provinces. Our traders with such men and such measures as Garcia Conde introduces, cannot make any money, and his existence there must put a stop to the trade.

S. steamer Princeton was at anchor at the Southwest Pass on Friday last, (31st ult.,) seven days from Vera Cruz. The steamship McKim, which arrived yesterday from Gal

veston, received on board Irom the Princeton, Mr. Par rott, bearer ot despatches from Mexico to the govern ment of the United States. Mr. P. proceeded immediate ly by the mail route to Washington. The Princeton left Vera Cruz 0n the same day as the brig Somen, the airival of which at Pensacola has al ready been noticed. The intelligence, consequently, is not later than was before received. It is understood, however, that the Mexican Government is anxious for the restoration of friendly relations with this country, and that the despatches which have now gone forward will probably lead to a speedy renewal oi diplomatic intercourse. The condition of Mexico is represented to be deplora blo in the extreme. With external quarrels on all hands, and internally discontent, insubordination and alarm prevailing every where, the Government is entirely powerless and inert, exposed to the bitterest denuncia tions, and threatened daily to be forcibly overthrown.? In Durengo, and other northern departments, tho en croachments of the Indian tribes are so serious as to throw the people into a state of universal consternation. I A deputation had reached the capitol to demand assist ance, and declaring that if it were not granted them the northern departments would be compelled to throw 1 themselves on the protection of the United States. The Government had no means to render the aid required, and no measures of relief find been devised. The Princeton was bound, we believe, lor Peniacols. She experienced head winds and a heavy head sea all the way to the Belize. She arrived within eighty miles of the Balize on tho fourth day out, when her fuel was ex hausted. , The McKim brings no later news from Texas.? tfrw Orlejnt Hullrlin, Aor. 3. Steam Navigation upon the Suwanek.?The following information, in relation to i> new route from Savannah to the Gulf, we find in the last number of the St. Augustine HtraUl. Our readers may remem ber that it has been in contemplation for some time past, to establish a mail route, by steamers, upon the Buwa- j nee, from Cedar Keys to Fort White, to be connected thenco with the St. John's by stage. We are informed that the necessary arrangements for prosecuting this useful enterprise, have been carried into effect. The steamboat Orpheus, built at New Orleans, expressly for tho purpose, has arrived, and taken her station on the route. We learn that she is a most lieautitnl vessel, 13ti Icet in length, and fitted up in line style, with 13 elegant state rooms. Sho will carry the U. 8. mail from Cedar Koy^s, to the now town of Nantufee, en the Santafec river in Columbia county, once a week, and will also run up the Suwaneo to the nourishing town of Columbus From tho Suwaneo, stages will convey passengers to and Irom the river St. John in connection with the steamers from Savannah, thus forming a direct line from Savannah to the Gulf. The advantages of this route cannot be duly appreciated, until wsliate begun to cxpcrieuco its convenience. Travellers to Key West, New Orleans. Tampa Bay, and Cedar Keys, can now avail themselves of a direct and expeditious convey - ance. It only remain* to connect Cedar Keys with New Orleans by steam communications, and one of the greatest thoroughfares of the south will be established in our State. The dangerous navigation mound the pe ninsula, tho reel-, the koys, and the bars, would Secure for this route a vast amount of tho travelling from the north to Louisiana and Texas. From infoi mation we have received, we can confidently assure our readers that a line of steam packets will very shortly ply be 'ween Suwaneo and New Orleans This, together with the line that lias been established between New York and Charleston, will give almost uninterrupted commu nication, by steam, along the whole Atlantic roast with tho Gulf, 1 his cannot but havo it beneficial eflect upon the settlement of 1* lorids, and we feel warranted in fore telling its rapid growth as tho result of these conveni ences in travel."

Rudolph Kurh, convicted of bigamy, was sentenced to be imprisoned in the State Prison for the iprisoned in the State Prison to r the term of two 1 years. Trial for Grand Larceny.?Two colored persons, named Peter Vance aud Carolina Brown, alias Sarah i Williams, were placed on trial for a grand larceny, for having stolen, in the month of September last, a gold watch worth $100 end clothing of the value of $.VJ, from Christiana Klimun, of No. 30 West Broadway. On the occasion of Vance's arrest, it was ascertained that he had sold the watch to some Jews in Orange st., and that some of complainant's clothing was found in the posses sion of Narah Williams. In the course ot the trial, it appeared that Vance had not been concerned in the robbery, but that he received the watch rrom Marah Williams lor the purpose of dis posing of it for her. The jury accordingly acquitted him, and rendered u verdict of guilty against the accus ed female, and the Court sentenced her to be imprisoned in trie State Prison for the term of '2 years and 6 months. Tnal fur receiving stolen goods. ?Peter Vance was then tried for receiving the gold watch stoleu by Caroline Brown alias Sarah Williams, from Christiana Khmans, which he sold in Orange street for $40. The proaccu "tion failing to show that the accused was cognizant that the property had been stolen, the jury acquitted him also on this charge. Trial for Burglary.?John Mo ran was then put on trial for a burglary in the first degree, in having forcibly en tered the dwelling of Mr. N. K. Anthony, No. 14 Grarn mercy Park, on the night of .the 30th July last and stolen glass ware, napkins, silver spoons, lie. On the part of the prosecution it was shown that some of the glass ware stolen, was subsequently disposed of by Morantothe proprietor of an oyster cellar. Lewis Lockwood, an accomplice of Moron's, testified that he and Moran were jointly concerned in the burglary. In behalf of tho accused, a step-sister of nis, testified that she gave him the glass-ware that was disposed of at the oyster cellar, and that the glasses had been in her possession for several years prior to that time. She also uverred that the accused was at home during the whole of the night on which the burglary was alleged to have been committed, and that he slept with his brother. The jury rendered a verdict of not guilty, afftr which tho Court adjourned until to-morrow morning. Trial of Polly IJoillne. Circuit Court. Before Judge Edmonds. Nov. 11.?The Court was further occupied, this day, in examining gentlemen who had been summoned on the jury panel, before " triers.'' The entire proceedings were totally barren of incident?the same routine of ex amination being gone through, in relation to the " for mation of opinion us to the guilt or innocence of the ac cused." The proceedings resulted in the swearing in of ting aside about 160 on the above grounds. two, after setting : Their names are Louis C. Divant, residing at 100 Ann street, builder, and William H. Conant. The Court adjourned about 9 o'clock last evening, to the usual hour this forenoon. U. S. District Court. Before Judge Betts. Nov. 11.? Case of Perjury?Straw Bail?Counterfeit rrs.? Robert Uritliths was nut forward and arraigned upon a charge of wilful perjury. The indictment let forth tliat 011 tlio 18th July, I84.i, a man named Ber hauk was arrested on a charge of having had in his pos session a quantity of counterfeit halt dollars and othei false coin, which he was engaged, in attempts to defraud the public by their circulation, iic., and was captured, upon which the prisoner went before Mr. Metcalf, Clerk of the United States District Court, and became bail for Berbank, swearing he was worth $3000 above his debts and demands, upon which he bailed out the prisoner Ber bank, who on getting his legs upon lree ground, gave Griffiths in return "leg bail for bis honesty," and ab sconded from the State. On enquiry, it was ascertained that the prisoner was nothing more than a " man ot straw," and the prosecution alleges that the false oath was taken with felonious intent. The prisoner pleaded not guilty. He is a plain looking man. fresh complex ion, sandy hair, and has a rather shrewd looking counte nance. Larceny.?Joseph S. Thomas was next arraigned on a charge of larceny, in having stolen from from the " Naval Hospital," Brooklyn, sixteen bank bills, value in the aggregate $258, on the 11th September last. Pri soner pleaded "not guiity." Thomas is quite a military looking person, who bears strong indication of having once belonged to the "Regu lar Army," and looked "eyes right" durixg his arraign ment. The case, it is expected.will go on this forenoon. Common Plena. Before Judgo Ingrnham. Nov. 11.?Kirby (a minor) vs. Ruton, et al?In this case, already noticed, the jury rendered a verdict for plaintiff? $75 damages nnd ?> cents costs. Joseph Cooley and wife vs. Israel Lewis. ? Slander.? This was an action of slander, to recover damages from defendant, for certain slunderous words alleged to have been uttered by him against the plaintilf, in the month of August last, in stating that Mrs. Cooley was " a thief and a bar," and in using other rather ungenteel expres sions derogatory to tnc character of Mrs. C. It ap peared that Mrs. C., one of the plaintiffs, is a respectable milliner, residing at "69 Hudson street, which premises belong to defendant,who also owns the adjoining bouse, No. 267. In the month of August last, defendant was engaged in repairing house No. 267, and sent o quantity of room paper there, which was mislaid, and having inquired about the same from Mrs Cooley, a misunderstanding arose, in the course of which the words imputed were alleged to have been ut tered. The defence setup was, that the paper in ques tion was left at plaintiff's house by mistake, and being used and pasted on the walls of her premises in the " wrong Lot," defendant became chagrined, and in a moment of irritation, used expressions in anger, ap plying them to the taking of tho paper. Adjourned over to this forenoon. Ketchum and Ketchum vs. IVickham nnd Hutchinson.? This was an action of trover, to recover from defendants, a quantity of lumber detained by them under a lien for freight, and the defence sot up that the party who con tracted the debt claimed, had duly settled it by sale of certain articles to defendant.

Instruction of Missionaries.?A large and inte resting meeting was held in Park street church, on Sunday evening, preparatory to the departure of a num ber of missionaries, who are expecting to sail to-morrow for Southern India and Ceylon. After the usual intro ductory services, Dr. Anderson delivered the instruc tions. He read several extracts from a letter of Dr. Wilson, Bishop of Calcutta, now in F.ngland, to the So ciety lor tho propagation of the Gospel, which presented a very animuted review of the missionary work itrHin dostan " I may truly say," writes the learned prelate, " that the fields in India are w hite already for the har vest. Nothing, 1 believe, has been seen like it since the day of the apostolic Swartz, and perhaps not then ; nor any thiDg approaching it. An outburst of the native mind seems at hand." Dr. Anderson was followed bv the dev. Mr. Spaulding. who has been a member of the Ceylon mission for more than a quarter of a century. After giving tliem some ex cellent advice in respect to their future labors, he com mended them, with much feeling, to the (iod of missions, expressing the hope that he might soon return to his bu rner field, and cast in his lot with them for the remainder ot his days. The missionaries who go to Madura are the Rev Messrs. Herrick, Webb and Rendall, with their wives.? Those who go to Ceylon are the ltev. Messrs Howlanu and Fletcher, with thoir wives, and Miss Capel. They are expecting to sail in the ship Malabar, (.'apt. Freeman. ? Boston Traveller. Dmtructivjj Kirk.?The rolling null of Messrs. Janice and John t'.tiw, on u lot near the rtver Dela wuro, below the Navy Yard, took lire on Sunday night about 12 o'clock, ami was destroyed. The building was 100 feet in depth, and ft feet wide, and it contained ma chine* y of the heaviest description. Tho mill went into operation on Friday last, under the most prospeious cir cumstances. The loss on the building amounts to $2, 000, that on the machinery $1,000. There were no insur ance upon either. The lire was tho result of careless ness or accident. Two Indictments against Tikrki.u?The munici pal court was opened by Judge Washburn, at noon to day, and the grand jury returned H.) indictments. Two of them arc against Albert J. Tii rell, alias Do Wolf?the first charging him with the murder of Maria A. Bickford, and the second for setting tire to the house in which she was killed. Whoever hi rests him will not only he en titled to tho reward ol $1000 lately offered, but also to tho reward of $.'<>00 for tho detection of incendiaries, offered by the city authorities some months ago.?Bost. paper, Naval.?The U. 8 brig Dolphin, Commander Pope, is to sail from Nortolk in a few days for the < oast of Africa. Tersons desirous of communicating with their friends on cither of the stations for which the Columbia ami Dolphin are destined, will have their let ters tot warded, it sent in time, to tho Norfolk Beacon Otttcs Brooklyn Intelligence* Present AND Prospectivr Financial Condition of thk City.?The difference in taxation upon property between the cities of Brooklyn and New York, is now ten cents on the hundred dollars,eighty-six cents being the average rate in the metropolis, and the lesser sum within the domains ol its young aad nourishing neigh bor. The present permanent floating debt of Brooklyn is six hundred thousand dollars (which cannot be liqui dated until the year 1855) added to which there are judgments ngninst the city amounting to upwards of one hundred thousand dollars. The proposed workhouse will not cost less than fifty thousand dollars, and the new City Hall will at least be attended with anoutlav of one hundred and fifty thousand dollars more. In ad dition to these heavy sums, the following projects, es sential to tho welfare of the city, and necessary adjuncts to its growth, must ere long be adopted, and go into ope ration:?New 'police and watch regulations, $60,000: ward maps, $10,000; additional public schools and teachers. $70,000; two parks, $150,000; and a supply of water for the whele population, at least a million and a half of dollars. These estimates are made by one of the oldest iuliabi ants of the place-a gentleman well ac quainted with the aflUn and wants of the city?and one who has helil fer a long period a .igh position in its mu nicipal government. Independent of the items thus fur nished, an increased taxation must result from the esta blishment of a hospital ; and it is seriously contem plated to found a high school, in whieh a iiortion of the youth of the city may obtain a finished classical education and be prepared for collegiate stu dies. Such an institution will also add materially to the liabilities and expenses of tho city, and there are many who have become alarmed at these heavy prospective burthens, and reailv to oppose them with hearty zeal and determination, without calculating upon the correspond ing advantages which must be derived, and the ultimate and permanent benefits that will inevitably accrue to the whole body of the )>eople. A City Hall at Cast?A Late Session.? When we left the Common Council chamber of Brooklyn, at 10 o'clock on Monday evening last, there was but little pros pect of any action being taken by the members towards removing the secret session resolution in relation to the City HaU, or opening the long sealed budget of tacts which they have so carefully and cautiously kept from the view ol their anxious and complaining,constituents It appears, however, that some time after mindnight, and between that hour and two o'clock on Tuesday morning tip to which period the hoard remained in session?the City Hall subject was publicly discussed, and a resolu tion adopted by a strict party vote to accept the plans and specifications of Mr. Gamaliel King, the lately elected democratic member of the State Legislature. All that has now been done is for c mtract to he entered into with some of the numurouo builders who have applied lor the work, and this business will be attended to under the su pervision of the Committee on Lauds and l'laces. The iowost proposal as yet received for the erection of the hall is one hundred and thirty thousand dollars. Repeal Meeting.?A meeting of the members of the United lush Repeal Association of Brooklyn, took place at Sweeny's Hotel, in York street, on Monday evening, and transacted considerable business. The long existing differences among the several individuals composing this association are said now to be entirely settled, and barmonv and unanimity once more reign among the ora tors and leaders. We do not learn, however, that any very extraordinary success has attended their efforts to procure funds for the furtherance of the cause which they profess to advocute with so much devotedness, ener gy and zeal. Melancholy and Fatal Accident. ? A fine youtb, about seventeen years of age, named Charles Brown, a son of Mr. Lyman Brown, who resides at the corner of Main and Front streets, in tins city, fell, on Monday eve ning,through the hatchway of the store of Messrs. Trow bridge, White h. Co., 118 f'earl street, New York, with whom he was engaged as a clerk. While he was closing the shutters in the third story, he accidentally stumbled over something, and was thereby precipitated through the open batch? ay, falling upon his head on the first floor. His skull received a severe fracture ; and he was immediately conveyed to the residence of his parents in Brooklyn, where every means were adopted for his re covery, but in vain. He lingered until 10 o'clock yester day morning, wben he expired, having remained sense less, without auy intermission, irom the time of the acci dent. Yesterday afternoon, Andrew (lakes, Lsq., one of the Coroner's ol the ( ounty, held an inquost upon the body, when the abovementioned facts were elicited, and a verdict rendered in accordance with them. We un - derstund that Dr. Rawson, the New York Coroner, was on the point of sending to Brooklyn for the body of the unfortunate young man, that he might hold the inquest, when he was informed that death did not take place within his jurisdiction. Caction to Housekeepers?Last evening, between five and six o'clock, a well dressed man was discovered on the stairway ol Mr. Owen Colguu's house, having en tered by the private door, which had carelessly been left unlocked. Whan detected, he stated as his excuse, that he had been directed to gu thither by some person in search of an individual for whom he had some money ; ind Mr. C. being unwilling to have any trouble with him?or perhaps not doubting his assertion?permitted him to depart quietly. It is well known, however, that at this season of the year there are gangs of fellows who make it their sole business to enter the halls of dwel lings and steal whatever may be placed there. House keepers, therefore, cannot be too careful in keeping their doors constantly secured against such depredators. Catherine Ferbt.?Persons who are in the habit of crossing the river by this ferry, complain of the frequent delays to whieh they are subjected by the inattention or neglect of those who have the management of the boats. In regard to celerity of movement and rapidity of travel, the other ferries, with all tneir many imperfections and their higher charges for commutation, are infinitely pre lerable ; and the proprietors of the Catherine Ferry, who profess a desire to accommodate the public in every possible respect, ought to remedy this evil promptly, or they will inevitably lose many of their present patrons. Another Target Excursion.?The Columbian Rifle men, commanded by Captain Morris, proceeded to Jersey City yesterday on u target excursion, during which they were to partake of a dinner provided for them by Mr. Lynch, of the Thatched Cottage. Sudden Death.?Mr. Geerge Fuller, of Booklyn, aged about forty-tivo years, died suddeuly in New York, on .Monday morning. Ho was for some time in the employ of Mr. George Van Brunt, the former proprietor of the refectory near the Fulton Ferry, and up to the time of his death,with Isaac Burtis, the present proprietor of the same house. While engaged in attending to some busi ness in New York, he was taken suddenly ill and ex pired in two hours It is supposed that ho died in a fit He was an industrious, man, of temperate habits and social qualities, and much esteemed by all who knew him. Oil Contract.?The Brooklyn Common Council,!! nd ing that the oil which they last week contracted to pro cure from Mr. \V T. Hatch, for tho use of the city, will not be suitable for the wiuter season, adopted a resolu tion on .Monday evening, directing the Lamp Committee to ascertain and report upon what terms Mr. Hatch will consent to so change his contract, as to furnish the city during the ensuing six months, with winter bleached sperm instead of uubleached sperm, and with winter strained bleached whale north west coast oil, inateadfol winter strained whale oil, as designated in the original bargain, in connection with the subject of better light ing the streets, the Street Commissioner was, at the same meeting, directed to enter into contracts with a certain firm for furnishing lamps for State, Garden, Co lumbia, and Pacific streets, at $1 75 per lamp, and also to advertiso for proposals for the requisite supply of lamp posts for the same streets. Police Office.?1The charge of bigamy, which has been for some days pending against the colored man, Samuel Waring, was disposed of en Monday, by defen dant being discharged. Several witnesses were called, and among them the brother of the first wife,from whoso testimony it appeared that Waring conscientiously be lieved, at the time of his second marriage, that she was dead. He had likewise uniformly borne a good charac ter fer honesty, industry and sobriety, which operated greatly in his favor; and as it would have answered no good purpose, under the circumstances, to punish hin), ne wax set ut liberty. He will not probably repeat the offence, as it generally brings its own punishment witli it. The magistrate hesitated whether he should sen tence Waring to live with both wives. A Goon Move.?At the meeting of the Common Coun cil on Monday evening last, Alderman Powell offered a resolution to refer to a special committed to inquire in to the propriety of so amending the city or- dinances, as to abolish the unjust restrictions upon trade in the shape of heavy chaiges for license to conduct regular and law ful business, and that the committee be requested to repoit the result of their deliberations to thia board at their earliest convenience. The resolution was adopted, and Messrs. Powell, Crist and Macomber were appointed to institute the necessary inquirias.
