General Nathaniel Lyoa is the son of Amasa Lyon, of Asbford, Windham cenaty, Coa nerticut, and is tbe descendant, paternally and maternally, of families who were' dis tinguished for Intellect aod integrity of char acter. His mother was of the Koawiton family, which produced two of the diltln gushed officers ofth Revolution ; one, the famous Col. Thos. Enowiton, who, as Major, commanded tbe Connecticut boys at the old rail fence oo tbe left ing of tbe American army at Bunker Hill, aod wa afterward kill ed at the battle of Harlem Heights, New York. The two brothers, Tboma and Daniel KnowU tonhad both UUtinguished themselves io the war between th colonist and EngHsh against the French from 17&5 to 1760. At the com mencement of tbe Revelation we find these two brother among tbe first to take tbe field In defence cf their country, and at Banker Hill both tbe historian and the artist have contributed' to place the nam of Colonel Kuowltoo.ainoug the most promieea of those whom a (rrateful country will aver delight to honor. Tbe oft rerited deeds of daring and patriotism anion hi ancestors thos falling upon the ears of young Nathaniel Lyes, from a mother lip, may hare fired his youthful heart and bad much to do with bu cboice ot the profession of arm. ; At an early, age, while under the tuition of an experlcooed leather, be showed great mathematical tal ent, and a power of combination and plan in the development of schemes, which, added to aa iron will and an indomitable perseverance thus early and unmistakably marked him . as one 14 born to command." Nathaniel Lyon was educated at tba United Slate Military Academy at West Point, where he graduated w ith distinction in 1841, and has remained In the army ever since, having risen to the raok of Captain in tbe Second Infantry, aad by tba recent choice of tbe Missouri Volunteer has become their Brigadier General, . He is now io tbe prime of lif as a military commander, being forty-two year fag Al will be seen, be has had great experience in bis profession, especially in the rougher duties, which fit blm so especially for hie present position. His service has been principally upon the frontier loth Florida, Texas, California, Oregon, Kansas, and other Indian and border war. He. entered the Military Academy a cadet in June, 1837, aad graduated in 1841. On graduating from the Military Academy be receired bis commission as Lieut, in the army, and was at Oece order ed 'o join the army in Florida, then operating against the Indians. After uncomplainingly pacing through that most disagreeable cam paign among tbe everglade3 of Florida, he was stationed for some years at Various poets oa oar Western frontier. Soon after tbv com meuceraeut of hostilities between the United States and Mexico, he was ordered to join tbe Mortbern lioe of operations under General Taylor, and after reaching Monterey was soon ordered to join tba expedition against Vera Crui. In tbe bombardment and captor of Vera Cruz, and tbe severely contested battle of Contreras, Cherobosco aod others which occurred between that place and the city Of Mexico, hi activity and military kill found full play. He took aa active part In each aod all of them, and while fighting in the streets in the city of Mexico, near the Beleo gate, on September 13, 1847, received a woaod from a musket ball. After the coaclusion of peace with Mexico, ha wa ordered tojeffersoo Bar racks, Missouri, preparatory to a contemplat ed march overlaod to California. By a change of order from the War Department his regi ment was despatched by hip via. Cape Hero, aad reached California. oon after It, acqui sition by tbe United State. Ilia stay in Cali fornia was prolonged Veyood that of roost of hi fellow officer, and bis time unceasingly employed la operating among th Indians, subjected to loe aod tedious marchea, con stent alarms aad frequented skirmiibe, liv ing a Urge portion or the time la tents, aad subject to th fatigues and privations incident to a catnpaigv , In that new and hitherto un known country, so far removed from the com fort of civilisation.
