A paragraph of a letter from Fort Gibson, dated August 26, in the Arkansas Intelligencer, gives the following account of the game brought in by the company of Green IRWIN, Esq., who had just returned from the prairies: -
“He has brought in four buffalo bulls, nineteen cows and eleven calves. He reports that his party took near a hundred calves, but that he could not save them. He also took an animal of the lion or panther species. It is a stranger to Buffon or Goldsmith, and to us all. It is almost of a bright scarlet colour, larger than a panther, and the mosr ferocious animal I suppose that ever fell into the hands of the human species. It was caught in a wolf trap.”
