>>Friday, 19 Oct 1860<<

Brigadier General CLARKE, Commanding Pacific Division, U.S.A., died in San Francisco on Wednesday. The 'Alta' says he entered the service in 1812, at the age of 19, and was 67 years old at his decease -- his rank being Colonel of 6th Infantry. He distinguished himself in the war of 1812 and in Florida, and has always been on the frontier, doing good and unceasing service to his country. He served through the Mexican war, where he commanded a brigade, and was present at nearly all the battles in Mexico, after which war he was brevetted Brigadier General.
