column destroyed. Posas, having united a
much superior force at the Coll, threw out a

The ''Comercio del Plala;' of Montevideo,
gives the following revolting account of the
execution of an Irish Priest and young v?omun
whom he had edneed :
A priest, named Gutierrez, ex-curate of the
parish of Socorros, in Buenos Ayres, seduced
a young girl of 22, named Camilla O'Gorman,
the daughter of respectable parents, and fled
with her in disguise to the province of Corri-
entes, where they remained unsaved in
teaching school until discovered and denoun
ced by an Irish priest, named Gannon. Guti
errez was immediately conducted, together
with the young girl, from Goya to Rosario, in
a vessel bound to Rio, and after remaining
there for a few days, exposed to all the mal
ice and calumny and insult, were brought be
fore Rotas, and both condemned to death.
Finding that Camilla was enciente, aud un
willing to postpone her execution one short
month, it was ordered that the child should
be baptized, and the order was accomplished
by pouring, in a spirit of mockery, holy water
down the mother's throat.
As they were being taken with their eyes
bandaged to the place of execution, Gutier
rez asked, who was walking at his side and
Camilla replied : "It is I my child has been
christened aud I am now content to die. Do
not grieve for me."
So great was the horror felt at Ihe atrocious
sentence, that even the soldiers at Santos Lu
gares, accustomed, as they were, to scenes of
butchery, recoiled as the order to fire upon
Ihe victims was given. One of the execu
tioners fainted, and another, while aiming at
Camilla, turned aside his head. They were
obliged to fire three discharges before the
act was fully consummated. At the first
fire, Camilla was untouched, at the second
hu was only slightly wounded, and at the
third she fell.
What must have been the feelings of Ihe
father of the wretched girl, and the Irish
priest, Gannon, the former of whom had in
formed Rosas of his daughter's flight imme
diately on its discovery, and nad procured a
search to be instituted for the fugitives.
Camilla O'Gorman, who, had she lived,
would now have accomplished her 23d year,
was au excellent pianist and singer. The
execution took place on Friday, August 18th,
at 10 A. M., and the bodies of the lovers
were placed in a box made for the purpose.

TUB LATE OCfl. KEARNEY.
We published, in our last weeks paper, the
intelligence of Gen. Kearney's death. We
now give a more extended biography of him
which we copy front the second volume of
"The Military Heroes of the United States."
Was born in Newark, New Jersey, about
the year 1792, and was pursuing his studies
at Columbia College, New York, when the
war of 1812 broke out. He immediately
left the institution, and entered the army as
First-Lientenant of the thirteenth infantry,
then onmmanded by Wool. Under this he
roic leader he marched to the Canada fron
tier; fought at Queenstown heights; and was
taken prisoner with Scott and other officers,
Being soon after exchanged, he rejoined his
old regiment, and served through the war
On the conclusion of peace, Kearney re
mainod in the army. The next twenty years
of his lifo were spent chiefly at frontier posts
but the time was not wnsted, for Kearney be
ing a close student, wnsdaily perfecting him
self in the knowledge of his profession. He
soon acquired the reputation of being one of
the most rigid diciplinanans and best tacli
cians in the service. His coolness in difficult
emergencies nassed into a proverb. No man
could be braver when danger was abroad
His rise was slow, however, the result of
long peace. A Major in 1824, he became
Lieutenant-Colonel in 1833, and a full Colonel
in 1836. When the first regiment of dragoons
was organized in 1833, he was charged with
its discipline, a task which ho executed in
the ablest manner ; indeed, the cavnlry arm
of Ihe service may bo considered as indebted
lo Kearney for all that it is. He prepared a
system of tactics, instructed the officers, and
inspired the corps with his own heroism.
In 1839, when a frontier war was nnticipa
ted, Kearney was ordered to Fort Wayne, to
overawe the Cherokees. He had now under
his command, for the first lime, a full regi
ment of ten companies. Ho subsequently
made many long marches thiough the various
Indian territories, acquiring a fund of valua
ble information for the government, and dis
seminating a wholesome respect for the flag
which he represented. He had, during the
years 1835 and 1836, penetrated to the head
of the Mississippi, aud to the Rocky Moun
tains, on which occasions, ulso, he had left a
strong impression among the savages, of the
power and energy of the United States. The
Indians called him tho "horse-chief of the
long knives." These journeys materially as
sisted to improved the condition and disci,
pie of his dragoons.
When the war with Mexico began, the
President determined to send an expedition
against New Mexico and California, and
Kearney was selected to command the troops
raised for this enterprise. Accordingly, he
assembled his forces, principally consisting
of volunteers, at Fort Leavenworth, in Jnne)
1846, and on the 30lh of that month, began
his march for Santa Fe, at the head of about
sixteen hundred men. For six weeks he tra
versed the vast wilderness which stretches
between the last civilized settlement on the
Missouri, and the first one a similar character
in New Mexico. He reached his destination
in August, without opposition. Having for
mally taken possession of Santa Fe, he pro
ceeded to declare New Mexico annexed to
tho United States. He next drew up a form
of government for it, and superintended the
election of a Governor and proper authorities
He now considered his work in this province
finished, and prepared to advance on Cali
fornia, pursuant to his instructions, only wait
ing for the arrival of Colonel Price from Fort
Leavenworth, with the thousand volunteers,
whom Kearney had left behind in his eager
ness to advance. At last, on the 25th of
September, he moved from Santa Fe for Cali.
fornia, with about four hundred dragoons, but
after having marched one hundred and seventy-five
miles, he met an express, with Ihe
news of Fremont's conquest of that country.
He now sent back most of his little army, re
taining only one hundred dragoons as nil es
cort. When Kearney reached the river liila, in
California, he learned that lhe province had
revolted, and that the Americans had been
expelled from Los Angelos, Ihe principal city
in the south. On the 2d of December he ar
rived at the first settlement in California,
where the news of Ihe insurrection was con
firmed. Four days afterwards, he fell in with
a body of the enemy, somewhat superior in
numbers, whom after a sharp action, he to
tally routed, lu this skirmish. Kearney was
wounded severely, und would have been
killed, but for Lieutenant Emory, who vhot
his antagonist just as he was about to make
a second thrust with the lance. Kearney ad
vauced about nine miles, when, being assail
ed by the Californians again, he seized t
neighboring hill, and held il until Commo
dure Stockton, four days after, sent him i
reinforcement of seventy-five marines and
one hundred seamen. In these two skir
mishes Kearney fought under great advan
tages, his men being mounted on broken
down mules, while the egemy had superb
horses. Two days after he was succeeded,
Kearney reached Sau Diego, where he found
Having ascertained that the insurgents
were still at Los Angelos, where they num
bered seven hundred, under the command of
General Flores, the two American leaders
resolved to march, with their combined for
ces, and dislodge him. Accordingly, with
about seven hundred men, and sit pieces of
artillery, they left San Diego, and proceeded
to meet the enemy, the united force being
under command of General Kearney. On
the 8th of January he came up with the Cali
fornians, who, with four guns, were drawn
up on a height on the opposite side of the
river. Kearney instantly formed his troops
in order of battle, aud placing himself daunt
lessly at their head, forded the stream, storm
ed the height, and gained a complete victory.
The action lasted about an hour and a half
By the following day, however, the Californi
ans had recovered their spirits, and, on Kearn
ey's resuming his advance, showed them
selves in his front and on his flanks. When
he had descended from the heights, and
reached the plains of the Mesa, the artillery
opened upon him, and soon after, concen
trating their columns, the Californians furious-
ly assailed his left flank. Their charge how I
ever, was decisively repulsed, on which they
took to flight. The next day Kearney entered
Los Angelos in tiiumph. 7
A difficulty now arose between Commo
dore Stockton and General Kearney in refer
ence to "the civil authority in California.
Kearney produced tho commission of the
President of the United States, authorizing
him to act as Commander of the country and
Governor; and claiming1 submission from
Stockton in consequence of this document.
Stockton, however, asserted that, as the
country had been conquered before Kearney's
arrival, a condition of affairs had arisen
which the President had not foreseen, and in
consequence, it could not be expected that
he and Fremont, the real conquerors, should
be deprived of their power by an authority
virtually abrogated. Fremont took the same
view of the question as Stockton, and refused
obedience to Kearney. Unfoitunately, how
ever, Kearney was Fremont's superior officer,
and hence entitled to the latter's obedience,
irrespective of the special commission. Of
this he was soon reminded, for when Com
modore Shubrick arrived with California vol
unteers, Kearney, finding himself with a su
perior force, deposed Fremont, ordered him
to the United States, and, on his arrival there,
placed him under arrest.
Kearney did not continue long in Califor
nia after the arrival of Com. Shubrick. He
remained, however, until he considered the
province pacified and secure from further in
surrection. He then returned to the United
States, accompanied by Fremont.
Firm, skilful, brave as a lion, Kearney was
one of the most valuable officers in the line
of the army. His country acknowledged
this, through Iho President, by conferring on
him, on the 30th cf June, 1846, the rank of a
Thb California Gold Region. We have
received a letter dated "Harbor of La Paz,
August 18th, 1848," which confirms the
statements that have been published in re
gard to Ihe richness of the Gold Mines in
California. The writer says :
The Gold Mines are still creating a great
deal of excitement in Upper California The
accounts I had heard I thought were extrava
gant ; but some officers of the U.S. ship War
ren, which arrived here a few days ago from
Monterey, tell me that I can hardly hear any
accounts that are exaggercd. The richness
of the mines is astonishing, and as a const,
quenee, no person will work at ordinary busi
ness, for less than from 830 to $90 per day
not even to nail shingles'.
New Use kor Chloroform. A dashing
and beautiful lady threw her arms around a
gentleman in the streets of London, and lov
ingly pressed a hankerchief to his nose : he
remembered nothing more until ho awoke
two or three minutes after lying upon the
side-walk, with a policeman at his side, mi
nus his watch and five-pounds in money.
The handkerchief, it is supposed, was satu
rated with chloroform, which rendered him
insensible, and enabled the vixen to lob him
