liltKAT MASTODON DISCOVERY.
[Correipondcr.cc New York Herald.]
Tno?, Novombor 11.?Tho scicntiflo world is quite
blioly to be thoroughly nronsod by tbo recont dis
coveries in the domain of natural hi?tory at Co
hoea, tho nirainfacturing vdlago immodiatoly ad
jacent to this city. During tho process of an ex
cavation some wecke sinco, on tho sito of a mill to
bo newly erected, a mammoth jaw bono was found
about one hundred feet from tbo banks of the Mo
hawk Ilivor, embedded at a distanco of sixty-five
feet below tbo surface of the oarth, and boing
taken up at once, excited tho attention of the na
turabsta not only of this vicinity, but likewise far
and wide. The length of tho jaw was thirty-two
inches, twenty inches in width, and weigbod some
what moro than forty-six pounds.
On Thursday last the remains of a complote
skolcton of a huge mastodon wore discovered
eighteen feet further down in the samo excavation,
and tho attendant naturalists of Yale and Union
Colleges and tho Renssalaor Polytechnic Institute
of this city, aro fully confirmed in tho opinion that
tho framo can be mado quito perfect. The remains
havo been carefully gathered together in tbe mill
of tho Harmony Company, cleaned and oiled, and
it is expected that tlioy will bo viewed and pro
nounced upon during the coming week by Profes
sor l/oiii? AgasBiz, tho learned naturalist and
savant of Harvard University. The jaw of the
mastodon is four foot nino inches in length from
the mouth to the cranium, to which a portion ol
the back bone and jaw are still connocilod. The
cranium risos very like that of an elephant. The
two tusks each measure eight feet in longtb, anc
their true position is well marked on the uppo:
jaw. The hip bono is fivo feet long and weighs oni
hundred pounds, whilo the shoulder bladei
moaBuro ten feet nino inches, and woiifh about lift?
pounds each. The under jaw already alluded to at
having boon found nomo weeks since, precisely
fits tbe upper jaw now exhumed, and the ribs ari
found to bo four foot and a half in length, and, ai
before stated, the fossibstB aro of tbe opinion tha
tho comp etcd frame will form a most essontial am
grave contribution to tho science of natural bis
The measurements Bhow that tho animal mue
havo stood at least fifteen feet in height, and havi
been a little upwards of twenty feet in longtb
independent of tho tusks already stated to be oacl
eight feet in longtb. Professor Marsh, of the Yali
Collcgo Scientific School, gives it as his wol
grounded opinion that the romains discovered ari
those of a great North American Mastodon, com
Soring in a? its parts fully with tho description o
ie animal given in tho scientific works, as fol
lows :?"The animal has tbo vaulted and cellula
skull of tho elephant, with largo tusks in tbe uppe
jaw, and heavy form. From tho character of th<
naBal bones, and tho shortness of the head am
neck, it has been concluded it bad a trunk."
Whenever similar remains havo boon discovorci
on this continent, tho fact has never failed t<
awaken tho deepest interest, not only in this coun
try, but in Europe. Fragments were first diBcov
ered as early as tho year 1705, and in 1801 the firs
comparatively complete skolcton of a maetodo
was found somewhere in Oraugo county, I am told
and immediately transported to London, roturne
and kept on exhibition in Philadelphia for som
years. Dr. Warren, of Harvard College, is said t
be in posHosBion of a largo part of another frame
and in 1815 it is stated that a largo and valuabl
collection of mastodon bones wore found on th
banks of the Mississippi Hiver, and having bee
wired together, were exhibited throughout th
country and in London as the groat MissoBOnriun
Harvard University is also in possession of a mai
todon skeleton, independent of that bolonging t
Dr. Warren, and it is alleged that specimens of th
primeval species havo boon found in sovcral of tb
States, but in no instanco anything liko-as perfei
as tho ono now developed at Conocs. Sciontifi
investigations upon this controverted subject ha\
been widely extended and marked by great indu
try. and, us this event shows, they havo been chi
raoteriacd by much success and truthfulness.
One author says: "The food of the maatodc
was entirely vegetable, as is proved by tho romaii
of twig? of coniferous trocs and other vegetab
matter found between tbo ribs; and tho anbn
was doubtless fond of resorting to marshy i
hoggy places, in search of succulent plants, who
it was often mirod in tho very places where its r
mains havo boon extracted during tho ninoteen
century." Anothor writer remarks: ' The ge
logical position of tho romains of this spoci
(niasludon) has long been, and still is, a subje
of dispute among geologists. In a few instanc
tboy are 8aid to bave been found below tho dri
