Adjutant General Perry's report contains among the newspaper extracts several items touching th Bartholomew troops. Ono of thfjse Is from the lirookvill" American of November 20, 1846, from Camp Clark, October 16: "There is little security In this place. On the evening of our arrival we Jost bne of our sergeants, who" was murdered in one of the restaurants for Ills money, but he had none by him.

Both of them are said to be fighting characters, but I never took the trouble to inquire which was the most to blame." While McKinney was serving a life sentence in the penitentiary at Jeffer-onville for the murder of Rupprecht In 1856, In an Interview veith the late Col. W. G. Terrell he related the par ticulars of the difficulty in Mexico, as follows: A member of a Georgia regiment which was stationed near Camp Dufllap on the Rio Gfande; a short distance from the Third Indiana, (o which McKinney belonged, was throw- lng chuck-a-luck on the top of a bar- 11.

The Georgian ran to the tent MEXICAN HEROES of Dunning and Kent, the sutlers of the Third Indiana, and Just as he entered It Buck overtook him and struck him in the back of the neck with the knife. McKinney then started for his own camp, whJh was at some distance across a mjjfA.ss, hotly pursued by the friends dfth e slaughtered Georgian, who would have captured mm ana lnmcted summary vengeance but for Col. Jim Iane, who ordered out a guard for his protection. He was kept under guard for a week! when the Georgia regiment was ordered to General Scott's line, greatly to the relief of McKinney. Colonel Lane later informed Terfell that the Georgian died from the inflicted wnind. i Colonel Lane after the war was elected lieutenant governor of the state.'a member of Congress and later became noted in the early days of Kansas as a free-soiler. The sutlers as well later became persons of distinction. Paris C.
