PROSECUTION OF THE WAR The ; lexatidria Gazette, in thc.annexcd article; exhibiis in its true chOsiettir the Consistent imbecility, which has marked, the course of the National Admiuistration iu the prosecution of the war with Mexico : The Washington Union says, "that it is the out(' determination of the Government to prnsecute,the war with all possible en ergy and vigor" until peace be obtained.— , Our gallant sultliers tight with energy and vigor, whenever an opportunity is atforde i ll them, but as to any energy or vigor on the part of t he. Administration in its manage most of the war, we have yet fur Me first time to see ii, save on paper. In the very first war message of Mr. Polk, on the 1 Wu May, 1816, hu invoked Congress "to place a:O , -the disposition of the Executive the means of prosecuting the war with vigor, & thus hastening the restoration of peace." Two, days after, Congress placed at his disposal tiny thousand volunteers and ten millions of money. On the Ithli of June following, Mr. l'olk stated his determina tion to prosecute the waroviguropsly," and asked, in order that "no contingency should be permitted to occur in which there would be a deficiency in the Treasury fur the vigorous prosecution oldie war," that "au thority be given to issue Treasury notes or to contract a loam" This was granted. All the men and all the money subsequent ly asked fur have been granted, and. all the messages of Mr. Polk reiterated the determination of the Administration to ,proseente the ‘vur with all possibli.:lnergY and vigor. Notwithstanding all these pro fessions, and notwithstanding the fact that Congress had granted all the supplies of men and money asked fur, (except the Lieut. General,) the war has never to this day been • •proi.eeuted iigormisly," in the sense in which the Administration journ als use that term. Our troops have done all that brave men could do, but they have always been left by the Administration with such limited means, both men and supplies, tin& they have never, in a single instance, been able to follow up their victories as they might have dune had the Administration perform ed its duty. So far froni - adopting or en. couraging a "vigorous prosecution" of the war, the Administration appears to have done every thing in its power to prevent it. Instead o f retaining and employing the volunteers raised by General Gaines, at a time when their service would have proved of more importance probably than at any subsequent period of 'the campaign, and • when they could have been employed un der the act of 13th of 31ay, 1840, they were disbanded. Subsequently thousands of volunteers who offered themselves have been rejected, and it is but a few weeks since the services of a company raised in Wilmington, Delaware, were refused, al though both General Taylor and General Seen are well known to have their hands tied for want of troops. The Union sonic weeks ago published elaborate statements showing that by the first of July General Scott would be at the head of 20,000 men, and General Taylor at the head of 10,000 men ; and yet, at the last dates from Gen eral. Scott, his force did not exceed 8,000 effective nvsn, including the garrisons at Jalapa and Perote, while only about 3,000 were on the march from Vera Cruz to re inforce him ; and General Taylor had only about 5,000, including every man bearing arms from Brazos to Buena Vista. Thus has it ever been ; and while the President has authority to employ (regulars and vol unteers,) something like 80,000 men, we doubt whether at any one period since the war commenced we had one-fourth of the number in the field. With these facts star ing us in the face let us learn more from the,Administration or its organs about "a vigorous prosecution of the war." . . POLE AND SANTA Amis.—There can not be found in the history of civilized na tions an instance of fatuity so gross, or treachery so wicked or immorality so glar ing, as the admission of Santa Anna into Mexico. by' order of Polk and his advisers. Ii they believed that he would assist in pro moting a peace, that result has shown what all wise men foresaw and all limiest men predicted, that they were defeating the ve ry end they hoped to accomplish; if they meant that he s tumid do ivhat he has done, gather supplies, levy recruits and organize armies to iesist our progress and slaughter our citizens, they were guilty of the most horrid treason ; or if they proposed that he should slur up disorder and invite re bellion among his own unhappy country men, they violated the first principles of international morality,and inflicted a wound upon the American name which they can not heal, and established a precedent at the consequences of which humanity shudders. Viewed in any aspect in which their apol ogists have placed it, this act is damning to the Administration ; and wits them no other cause of objection—unfortuntitely for the people there aro thousands—this of itself - would be sufficint reason why ev ery just and upright man should labor to secure their overthrow. It is well, perhaps, for the immediate rescue of the goverment - front the 'hands of those who have outrageously abused it, that this.fully or this crime—in - its- bat construction it partakes of the - nature of both—should have been committed. It is well, perhaps, that the recklessness of pro fligate rulers, after plunging the country into an unnecessary war, should haveltal to the eonimission of an act which has no parallel its tho annals ofnational turpitude, because the mural sense of the nation has been roused by irto the necessity of in stant and simple vindication ; but still the theek'of every American tingles at the thought that the destinies of the laud have inxin committed, even temporarily, to those who would thus betray them. [North Stneriam. In the most fortunate event, the triumphs of the battle-tichl are truly deplorable. A French lady once said to the Duke of AVellington, 'a great victory must be a glorious affair." Madam," replied he, "I eunceive it to he the most deplorable cat astrophe that can possibly happen, except * grest.durrat." The expericuce of one man. who had been witness to so much blitirkshind, is worth all the. preaehings of all the Peace societies iu the world. Dinh then must ho the responsibility to :God. to mankind, and to history, of that Governor eat which, either upou slight provocation or for the mike of adding to its territories, or for any other than a most ortutrolling reason, plunges a people into this fearful state.

GUN. IRVIN AND HIS SLANDERERS The unostentatious charity of Gen. la riat is one of the brightest traits in his character. lu a rough canvass of a politi- Cal campaign, it would perhaps have been the best policy to leave untold the recital of his many generous acts. Buthis friends and supporters are so truly proud of his private worth, that many incidents have found their way to the public press, the promulgation of which, we are confident, Gen. ham would have avoided, could he ha ve controlled it. Among these acts 41)6- vatc munificence, we copied one from the Pensylvania Telegraph, which was to the effect that Gen. lam.: supported at his sole expense, at Lafayette College, a Chinese youth, who was studying for the Christian ministry. IVe arc always in the habit of recording such devils, wherever we meet them, as they are an honor to human nature, and little did we think that, party malignity would endeavor to distort or falsify the libel. The Easton Argus, a violent and scrupu lous Locoliico paper, published at Easton. where Lafayette College is situated, im mediately contradicted the story—said it had made inquiry of the officers, and found no suck youth there; but admitted there had been one last winter answering to the description, and still denying that he had been supported while there by Geti. him This article front the Easton Argus having found its way into Centre county, .the Bellefonte Whig felt called upon to enqiiire into its truth. lo the course of his inqui ries he was referred to Rev. JAPE LINN, the Presbyterian Minister at Bellefonte, who gave the following farts. .„ In November last, the Rev.

Tnt: Masons or Wsit.--A Massachu setts volunteer, writing to his friend at N ewburyport, gives the , following illustra tion of the horrors of war: ""One of the most horrible sights I over saw was when we passed the dead men's road, as it is called, where the train was cut oft last spring, a few days before the battler Of Buena Vista. There were men's bones, 'rotting carcasses of men, cattle, and !torsos strewed thickly around, with here and there an ann, skull, Ate., with nothing to proteet them but the deadly stench aria ng from them." MORE LETTERS General Taylor has addressed a letter to General PeterSkenSmith,of Philadelphia * in relation to his being a candidate of the Native American party. The letter hi da ted July 6th. Ile says: • "Upon the points alluded to in those re marks, and to which member s of the Na tive American party require assent from those whom they favor for the Presidency, I can only say with all candor, that if elect ed to that office it,must be by the sponta neous will of the people at large, and with: out agency or pledge on my part in any particular. If I ever fill that high'offtee. it must be untrammeled with party obliga tions or interests any Itind,and under none but those which the amstitation—and the Aitrh interests of the nation at large most seriously and solemnly demand.

In relatidn to a set of yes' °lotions adopt ed in May last, by a meeting of the 'Whip in Nottingham district, Prince George's county,, Maryland, approving of his course in condricting the war with Woxico, and at the same lime nominating him for the Presidency in 1848, General Taylor sends the following hitter: Mod Qmartete Jruty of Orespatins, j Camp netarrilouterry, Mesko, July 1847. 5 My Pear Sir:—Theriesoluttons recent ly adopted by a meeting of the citizens of Prince—Gleurges. county, Maryland, for warded to me by you, have been, with your aecoinpanying letter, duly received. • Throughyou I wouldvespectfully_return to those kind friends my deep and sincere thanks for the very high honor and Ilene testimoniali pf approval which they have conferred upon me.

WlLu►x_HalL, Aquasco, Prince Georges county, Md. Tug Faisnos.--The York Republican thus handsomely alludes to the conduct of the Friends toward the suffering people of Ireland : “We - were struck on looking over • than a column of closely printed matter in therPennaylvania Inquirer, which contain ed the acknowlegements by the Central Re lief Committee - of the Society of Friends in Ireland, of the remittances recei v ed front this country to aid in staying the ravages of Famine in that unhappy island, with the contrast which it presented to certain other prOceeding now going on throughout the world. It seems that ,we have contri buted £14,576 175., or about 872,880 in cash, in this charitable work, besides up wards of sixty thousand barrels of corn And unal..wheatiod rye _lour. peas. and beans, and boxes of clothing. Of all these contributions, from every quarter of the Union, and from all religious denomina tions. the Society of Friends in Ireland,by an unsolitated and by no means prearrang ed movement, were constituted the almost era to distribute them among thesuffering, destitute and starving victims of hunger and disease. What a noble, compliment ! What implicit confidence!. It was sent to the Friends. because they were fully reli ed upon as impartialas regarding no sect or party—as caring nothing for the distinc tion of Catholic and Protestant—as know ing no other eleimthin that of calamity and affliction, and recopitzing that, whenceso ever it might proctitild.

It may be so far excited by what has passed as not to listen to reason.

COL. Z. PRATT'S TANNERY lIIINT ' S MERCHANTS' MAO/LEINE for Au gust is anintcresting number, and rich in commercial information/ Aniong the ar ticles is . a account of the Tannery of Mr. &nom( Pnarr, at Prattsville, in the State of New York. It is asid,tobe the largest establishment of the kind in the world. The following extract will furnish some idea of the immense scale upon which it is conducted : "The Prattsville Tannery, as we haii said, furnishes one of the most striking ex amples of individual energy ited enterprise which oureountry, fruitful as it is in such examples.' affords. A little more than twenty year ago, the district of country in which it stands was a perfect , wilder ness. Although just back of the well known Catskill range, and not more than teirty-six miles from the banks of the Hud son, the great thoroughfare of our interior trade, the depth of its hemlock forests, - the solitude of its mountain_ glens, and the flashing of its tumbling brooks, bad been explored only by thefout of the hunter, and were as little known to the public as the slopes and vaUeys of the Rocky Moun tains. In 1824 fiol. Pratt visited this dis trict, and will, with unerritkg judgement, at once decided upon it as the proper loca tion. With a man of Col. Pratt's energy, from the conception of a project to its ex ecution is but a single step. With such men to will and to do is the same thing.= In less than nicety days he had a tannery erected and ready to commence operations. This tannery is an immense Wooden building, 530 feet in length, 43 feet in breadth, and twit stories and a half high.— Within this area are contained 300 vats, with conductors to draw the liquor to the pitinp,itifording about 48,040 cubits feet of room for tanning purposes. A large wing, 40 feet by 80, extending over the stream, contains twelve leaches; six of which have copper heaters, each 28 feet lone. The cubic contents of the leaches amount to a-1 bout 12,000 ket, and also the bark lon, through which; in the course of the year, passes more than ail' thousand colds of bark. The mills through which it is ground are cepoble of grinding over a cord of bark per labor ; and it has connected with it a pump of sufficient capacity to de liver 1,000 cubit feet of "ooze," or water charged with tanning, in thirty minutes.-- The beam-house contains thirty vats, equ v :dent to 7,640 cubic feet. It has connect:- ed with it three hide mills, for softening the dry Spanish hides, and two rolling machines, capable of rolling 500 sides of leather per day. Outside of the building, but connected with the beam-house by an under-ground communication. are eight stone sweat-pits, with pointed arches and flues. The pits are of the most approved size, being in area ten feet by fourteen, and in depth eight feet, with a spring of wa ter at one corner. The labor employed, directly or indirect ly, may be set down at two hundred men daily. The ramified branches of business and trade that it fosters, the comfort, refine ment, and intelligince of which it becomes the centre, and its final influence upon the growth and populousness of the surround ing district,cannot be too highly estimated." A STRUGGLE FOR FREEDO3I,—.—TIIO Met err I.urniecrV gives the following account of a slave who recently passed through that place on his way to Canada: - He wirfrom Louisiana ; and ho has been three months in performing his pil grimage journey, with nothing but the riv er for his guide, and in a land of enemies, the greater part of the way, ready to seize and return him to his prison house of bon dage. He is about 25 years of age, and this is the second attempt he has made to gain his freedom. The first was made some years since, which proved unsuc cessful, as he was re-captured and taken back; when be was put to work again on a cotton plantation, with ,a heavy bar of iron attached to one of his legs. This was worn by him for years; when. supposing that the spirit of manhood oar crusted in him, it was removed. He still cherished in his bosom a desire for liberty and when an opportunity offered . : readied to make another desperate 'Wort to gratify it. lu this he hag been successful. CKNTHAL RAILROAD.....—The Secretary of the Commonivealth 'Of 'Pennsylvania has issued a proclamation, in which, after re citing the provisions of atract of the gene-- ral Assemby. passed at the session of 1840, entitled "An act to authorize the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company to construct a railroad through Pennsylvania, in a dr. motion from. Baltimore to the Ohio river at the city of Pittshurg,!! he declares the said act to be null and void. This settles the question - as to the char ter of the great Pennsylvania railroad.— The Secretary says further, that ..satisfac tory evidence has been furnished to him that one million of dollars on aceount of the stock subscribed has been . paid into the Treasury of ' that company I and also That- thirty-miles el -said-vat heed have been put under contract for construction, and that one-kalf of Abe -portion so put under contractis at thi - western tenuiiiiis of the said road, commencing at the city of Pitts burg andante:tiling eisiviardly.': . • STILAN Heo-Carattun.:-,The contractors on the Bay State' mills now hoist their brick and mortar by. steam.

DEATH AND CULPABLE NEGLECT: Oa Friday evening last, Mr. Jacob Allison, who was engaged, during the day, in deliv ering some wood at Eree 'Talk, on Baltimore and Susquehanna Rail Road, was discovered lying along side of a fence, almost insensible. Thinking that Mr. A. was intoxicated he was removed to a stable close by, where they permitted him to re main. About U o'clock at night they went to see what had become of him,' when he was still there. In the morning they made another visit to the stable, when they dis covered that the man 'had died. By all means the deceased should have been ea red for, when they paid their first visit, in, the evening. Mr. A. was in easy circum sdhees, and the owner of two farms, we understand.— York ddrocalc. CANADA.—The Prstilence.—The Iris h famine fever has evidently assumed a pest ilontial or epidemical form in Montreal and- Quebec, where the people aro paying dear ly 154 British misgovernment in hellrid. The Quebec Gazette of the 2d inst. states that the Rev. Mr. McMahan, pas tor of Pt. Patrick's church there, had an nouneed 60deaths among hie rongregalion alone in the previous week.. There hid' died on ship-board, on the passage front Great Britain to Quebec, over 2,500 immi grants, in Grosso Isle Hospital, 1,500, on board ships at Grosselsle 750, and in Mon-- treat, Quebec, and sheds, &c., over 8,500 tnor . e; in all, 84150 deaths, besides the pes tilence carried through Canada, destroying the clergy, physicians, nuns, benevolent householders, crews of boats,ships, &c.— Over 70,000 have reached Canada from Europe this year, and of those, some 5,000 are yet below Quebec. In all, 200,000 must have been added to the potitilittion of North America from Europe since the Ist of Januarytast. • The deaths in the abortive efforts at re volt in Ireland, in 1798 and 1803, were few when compared to the famine fever caused by the rapacity of Irish Landlords. The barque Naomi arrived lkom Liver pool, same day as the YorkAire, had 334 passengers ; and of these 78 had died at sea, 104 were dying of the fever—while the Martingale, from Hamburg, brought 160 passengers, and there were none sick or dead. One ship, the Agamemnon, from _Liverpoool, brought 640 passengers, a whole village at once. At Montreal, 202 immigrants had died at the miserable sheds, near the swampy grounds, during the past week, and 05 more of them in the city. A BON-NOT OF THE POPE—The Ro mans of the present day, like their progen itors, are the greatest lovers of art in the world, even that of dancing. That of Fan ny Euler electrified them, insomuch that their enthusiasm provoked a subscription which produced the sum of 12,0015 francs, which sum they converted into a crown of gold, which they wished to offer to the ob psetof their idolatry. They, however, recol lected that there was at the Quirinal a map whom they preferred to Fanny Elsaler.— They went to find him, saying: "Most Holy Father, if it does not displease your Holiness, we desire to give to Funny Els sler a crown of gold u'llich we have here." "Give the crown, then, if it amuses you," replied the good Pius, laughing. "I would merely observe that your gift is not logi cal." "Why, Holy Father?" "Only on this wise: I thought till now crowns were made for the head, and not for the feet!" Notwithstanding this the Romans offered their crown of gold to Fanny Eissler ; but the same day they sent to Pius IX a thou sand crowns for his suffering poor. A FISISLLE ARMY.—Mr. Duncan, an Af rican traveller, presented a 'paper at a late meeting of the Royal Geographical Socie ty, containing an account of a recent jour ney into the interior of Africa, 400 miles, where no European had ever been. Ile was kindly:treated by the King of Deliomy, who promoted his views. Among other things, Dr. Duncan gives novel details of this king's military establishment. His body-guard consists of upwards of 6000 women, armed with muskcis, short sabres and clubs. This guard is also officered by women, and the officers are selected principally on accountuf their height 'and bodily dimensions, corpulency being abso lutely essential ; so that, in fact, they are 1111 persons of considerable height. The present Parliament of Great Brit ain is one of the few that have lived out their natural term of seven years, it being rarely found that so long a time passses without a ministerial crisis ofsome kind to necessitate a new appeal to the people.— During the seven years just completed, howevef; we have contrived . not only to pais the greatest scheme of modern times —the introduction of free-trade—without resorting to the election booths, but have actually accomplished it by the voice of a Parliament elected under Sir Robert'Peel's banner fur the express purpose of resisting the innovation.—eor.

MURRAIN AND DEATH.-A' correspon dent at South Gardner informs us that Mr. Luther Gates, Of Sterling. week before last, lust fire valuable oxen and two cowc by a disease which some suppose to be the mur rain. He assisted a physician from Fitch butg,-who"was examuluithiflatiiii - of tirelf death, and from a alight scratch on his thumb contracted the disease, which car ried him off suddenly.

The milk-maid would find her work done, and no way to account for it. Suspicion, we suppose, as it general lit such cases, began-icilasten epos-honent-peeple-in-the neighborhood; for sure it was that some active agent must be engaged in plunder ing the cow of her milky treasures. At length the secret vas discovered. ~A pig five or six months old, web discovered in the act of sticking the cow, which with great docility submitted to the operation. We have hetud of similar cases—of pigs sucking cows; but believe the 'ln stances are verr.rare. One in particular, in which a shoemaker was suspected of milking a neighbor's - cows; but the repu tation.of the honest man was afterward! triumphantly vindicated by the discovery that it was the shoemaker's pig. • MORi►Ls Or Mem HAMPOUIRL—There is now living, in one of the chief towns of New Ilainprhire, a woman who -has had ten husbands, all of whom are now living upon the best of terms with her and each other.

POLK'S GENERALSHIP.—The' Phil adelphia/fernerylranian, in one of those tonntount able moods ofeonrblaive joeularity which have re-, e own dyer rave and solemn print, rev produced hoot the Richmond. Enquirer a most atro cious burbler, spat Mr. Polk—the publication of on any'ordinary grounds orptrtinut sanity, it is difileukto account for. "Do justice to ill l" 'fine exeelaims the Enquirer, Mid then proceed' : "The Whigs have not done common justice.** the President in the promentkm of 'hie war. It should be constantly kept before the people, that JANIS K. Pose is the eommander-in-chieforthe army and navy of the United Matta: and that he has devoted all of his energies to the discharge bf his high duties, with an' eye to the interest and honor of the conntry--and hu proven himself a trustworthy commander-invehieE Is it not dis• graceful in his political enemies to revileztid belit tle him, when the trot of the world ere looking on with admiration end estoeistanent at the wisdom and I . fforccatt vvitil k which his plans are laid, and the promptitude, energyand surmise 'with which they are executed'!" It is true enough, says our cotemporary of the U. States Gazette, that "the Whigs have not yet doom common justice" to Mr. Pour.; but that they are fully determined to do so, the Enquinnt may rest assured. The year 1848 will see "cent moo justice" executed upon the culprit, to the sa tisfaction of even this insatiate satirist. We agree also, that "it shinilealffiffllntly be kept before the people" that James K. Polk is commander-in-ebief of the Navy—in which capacity he suffitred our fleet to barnacle itself for months in the Gulf of Mexico, end ordered it to give free passage to the blockaded port to the only man who ought to have been kept out; anti that he is also commander-in chief of t r ite Army, in which capacityhocedered General Taylor to fall back upon Monterey before the army of his friends and protege, Santa Anna. But it was nor "James K. Polk, commander-in chief of the army and Navy," who captured Vera Cruz,—who gained the heights of Cerro Gordo,— who made glorious the days of Palo Alto, Resaca de la Palms, and Buena Vista. With none of these achievements had the "ecommander4n-chief" any thing to do; hut, while they were going on, he and his venomous ministers were safe in their cabinets at. Washington, concocting schemes for depriving Gen. Taylor of his troupe and sacrifi cing him and his brave volunteers to the enemy; or mourning over the defeat of their plans to dis grace Gen. Scott on the very field of his glory, and commit the fortunes of the war and the honor of the country to broken- do* political hacks and huck stering desperadoes. Such were some of "use plans," at which the "rest of the world have been looking on with admiration anti astonishment." THINK OF IT! The expenses of Mr. Polk's administration, for the lust three months, were $22,475,505—being at the rate of ninety millions per annum. Think of it! A QUltTaa MILLION 0/ DOLL: 55 ■/LST Erin( DA 5, because Texas was unnexedlind Mr. Polk wanted the glory of a war ! Think of it, vo ters! before you resolve,whom to support fur the next President. Think of it, Pennsylvanians, be fore you determine to support for re-election a Governor, who approves of all Mr. Polk's official and unconstitutional arts ! FROM THE SEAT OF WAIL.—No defi nite intelligence has been received from Scare's division of the Army since our last. The New Orleans papers contain a nutuber of &inflicting rumors in regard td, the "appointment of peace commissioners," lie'" failure of-negotiations," the "adt since of Gen. Scott upon the capital," &c. but none o( them scent to be Lased upon authentic ads icon. The last and most important ruiner appears in the New Orleans National of the inst. to the effect that GEN. SCOTT ENTERED THE Ulf Of al.p.xico on the 17th of July, after a severely conte,ted struggle with a large Mesielin force, about eight miles this side of the capital, commanded by Santa Anna in person. Our loss is put down at three hundred killed and wounded. the slaughter of the enemy having lwen immense. As soon as the battle was decided, the civil au thorities came out to meet Gen. Scott, and forth with offered terms of capitulation, which were ac cepted. This important news reached New Orleans by a Mexican courier, a passenger in the steamer M assachusetts; but subsequent arrivals from Vera Cruz and Tampico make no mention of the intel ligence, so that there is reason to infer that there is a mistake somewhere. The ,Lid authentic ad vice' from Gen. Scott left him at Puebla awaiting the arrival of the reinforcements under Oen. Pierce, with which it was understood he would commence a forward movement on the 15th ult. If so, it is not probable that ho redid have marched 87 miles, (the distance from Puebla to thg capital,) fought s severe battle, and entered the city ,by the 17th—the day upon which he la said-tatty° marched into the capital. The length of time that has elapsed since the last receipt of official advice' , from Gen. Scott, and the numerous and conflict ing rumors in regard to his movements, very nat urally gives rise to a great deal of anxiety to hear something definite and authentic. A few more days will settle the matter. If a battle has been fought, that it will prove to have been a triumphant ono for our arms, the achiever:tents at Vera Cruz and Cerro Gordo leave but little room for doubt. Gen. Ts Loa was at Walnut springs, near Monterey, still awaiting the arrival of . reinforce. merits, when, it is confidently stated, be will ad- vance on Ban Luis Potosi, and from thence to the city of Mexico. The health of ell the troops is good at Ealtillo, Monterey, Ceralvo, Mierand Mat amoras. This remark applies to those recently arrived, ea well ai the more acclinlated. Taylor's whole command at the present time is a bout 7000 men-.not more. Of these, Gen. Wool has with him at Buena Vista, 2900, or thereabout; there are immediately under Geri. Taylor, at Mon- terey, 800 ; at Meir, Gently° and Altamonte, there are about 8800. It is said that b - oth dotterels Taylor and Wool aro anxious to move ferwerd;but that .
