IF. Entn Strom. I am Coroner of Pettis county ; I held an inquest on the 14lh day of February, 1S77, on the banks of Cedar Creek ; I found a body in some drift wood. Tlie doctor here detailed the incidents of the Coroner's inquest The witness was shown the clothing and quilt and recognized it as the Clothing and quilt found on and with lhe body on Cedar Creek; there were several wounds on Ihe head of the deceased, which had been made by an axe, I judged. The skull was bro ken on the forehead ; I should judge from thia wound that the party who STRCCKTIIE BLOW did it from behind the man. These or either j one ol them would have killed him. lhe I body under the clothing was in a good state of preservation looked as if it had been recently killed. 1 should think, perhaps, he might have been dead three days when found might have been less. There was too much blood on the quilt and clothing to come from the head. Mv opinion was that the THROAT HAD BEEN CCT. The animals had eaten so much that I could not tell definitely about the throat being cut.

The Texan revolt against her Mexican masters was not yet successful, and Gen. Santa Anna, then considered the "Napoleon of the West, crossed the Rio Grande with an army, to mince the rebellious subject of Texas. He had formed at Malamoras a junction with Gen. Urrei, whom he dis patched with a portion of his forces to oc cupy San Patrico, on the Lower Texas coast. With ihe remainder he set out for San Antonio, then held by Lieut. Col. W Barret Travis in command of a handful of Texan. It was on the 23d of February, 1839, a jear most memorable in Texan an nals, that Gen. Santa Anna, with about 1,000 men, approached the town from the southward. With him were Gens. Ramirez, Sesraa and Almonte. The Texan retired ia good order to the Alamo, leaving the town in the hands of the Mexicans, who immediately hoisted on a church tower the blood red lag. Behind the stone walls of this place of retreat Travis 'found but three bushels of corn, hut before he was totally surroBBded captured eighty or ninety bushels and some beeves from the vicinity. The place was supplied with water from the oorias mentioned. The Texan commander was thus shat up with a lorce oi iw men oaiy, anu wc wtuw . r . .

Such was the state of affair when the Mexican General demanded the unconditi - onal surrender of the fort, but the sum- mom was replied to by. a shot from the Texans. CoL Travis declaring his purpose neither to retreat nor surrender. On the 24th of February. Travis sent an express to fVl Pan i ii. at G.doid. for aid. .k-k v u..p rOT.;Hi snd on the erocd the San Antonio with the battalion dej Caxadores, being shortly after joined by ' the battalion de Ximines, for the purpose f of erecting a battery ia front of the main gate of the Alamx But the Texans made a strong resistance, the fight lasting till the afternoon and resulting iVthe killing of eight Mexicans. The battery, however, was erected the following night. THE MEXICANS RE-EN FORCED. On the 26th the beseigers were re enforced, Santa Anna's force finally amonnting to 4,000 men. On the night of the -V.h there was a skirmish with his cavalry east of the fort, and on the 28th the enemy erected another battery at an old mill S00 yards distant. Other batteries were subsequently equipped, and ball and shell began to strike and burst over and among the doomed, none of whom were harmed during the early part of the siege. The Texans being short of a ta inanition, fired but se'dom, and on the first of Mrch fired a tweaty pound cannon shot into an old house occu pied by Santa Anna as his headquarters ia the towa. At the same time the belea guered were reinforced by Capt. J. W. Smith, of Qonsales, with thirty two men. iacreasimr Travis' effective force to 188 rank and file.

PE?ARATIONS FOR THE -VSPACLT- On the afternoon of the 4th the Mexican General callci a council of war, and irn ruediately thereaftar begn preparations for the assault, his troop then exceeding 4,000 men, fresh and rested, while the little Texas band were worn down with the fatigue of watch and ihe woe of famine. On the morning of the Cth of March, 1830, the enemy moved to the assault, and a little past midnight the entire Mexican army hid surrounded the place. The infantry were arranged in front with the cavalry in the rear, who had orders to cut down those who refu-ed to aid in taking the fort. The clear star looked down upon the broad prairies, and the dark h.ill.tliou of the besiegers and the beleaguered, now reduced to the la-text rcmity,3-s if condemn ing the terrible scetie. about to lie enacted. The assailants advanced under a severe fire from the rifles and ordnance of the Texan. The gray drawn of the eventful morning lay over the plaius, the town and the river. The Mexicans advanced witli their scaling ladders and placed them sgain.-t the walls, but the defenders from within repulsed them with loss. Again the charge w:i sounded and the besiegers advanced to the assault, but were a second time driven back without reaching the top of the walk. There was a dreadful pause, like the lull in the storm before howling like a thous.md demons over the doomed vessel. And now Santa Anna s Then occurred a hand to hand light, man to man, followed by a scene of carnage and bloow surpassed in horror by few of the massacres of history. The survivors of Travis company fought to the last. Snuie clubbed their guns and did execution on their assailants even after they were over whelmed with numbers. Only a few cried planer, but were not heeded. Of lhe en tire garrison all were put to the sword, not one surviving, and all fighting till dis- J patched by the conquerors Tit WW AND CROCKETT. Among the defender was the celebrated David Crockett, who had gone to Congress from Tennessee, cut come to aid the TeXan in gaining their lilierty and treeing themselves from the Mexican power. Crockett w.is killed in the east em corner of the tort, while the Te.x m commander fell on the western sid?wU had been agreed upon by the Texan that the last surviving one of their number should fire the magazine, thn blowing him self and the enemy inside the walls to de struction, but Maj. Evan, M-tster of Oidi uince, while in tlie act of performing ibis last solemn duty w.is killed. The brave Col. Howie, who had been for some days sick, was also butchered in his bed and his body horribly mil ilated. THE HEI HEAPED UP AND BURNED. Thus fell the Alamo; thus perished the 188 brave patriots who defended it. Tlie sound of the artillery had died away iu the distance of the plains, and the clear, serene Sabbath nun. had risen alike upon the swell of the grassy hill in the east and the be grimed and bloody faces of the slain. Around and about the fort, besi te the Tcx ans, there lay 521 Mexican corpses, stark, stiff and cold, teides an equal number of wounded, an evidence of the desjierale character of the conflict. The Texan dead were, after being subjected to numlierless indignities, thrown into heap and burned within the walls. THE SURVIVORS Thourh none of Col. Travis land were left to tell the tale, Mrs. Dickins-in, wife of Lieut. Dickinson, who fell in the defense, her child, a negro servant of Col. Travis', and two Mexican women of San Antonio de Dexar were the only survivors of those in the fort. The blood of the immortal Texan band still stains the massive walls of the Alamo, and as the footsteps of the modern visitor reverberate through it solemn old halls lie almost fancies it the echo of the bloody strife that sent 188 hemic spirits to their last abode Sunday morning, March 6, 1836.
