LIVERPOOL.On Saturday last a dreadful accident occurred at the Zoological Gardens, in this town. A lady and gentleman wished to see the elephant going through his performances, and as he re- fused, the keeper struck him, in order to compel him, but the noble animal instead of complying took hold of the keeper ui h his trunk, placed bini on the floor and crushed him to death with his huge foot. The elephant had upwards of two ounces of prnssic acid administered to him in order to cause his death, but without any perceptible effect. He was then shot by a company of her Majesty's Riflemen, who happened to be in town at the time, apd died without a struggle. He was considered the largest elephant in Europe, and had cost the proprietor $00 guineas, and I was yalued at the pres.eat time at 1,000 guineas,.
