Nicholas Harris, one of the prisoners,
w hose youthful wife, to w hom he lately
plightly his vows, was present, nnd who is
now utterly destitute and friendless, by be
ing deprived of his protection and support,
made a most affecting speech to the court,
asking for mercy on her behalf, and decla
ring that rather than suffer a long imprison-.
ment,slie would prefer to expiate his offence
on the gallows. Judge Kelly, however, said
that he intended to punish him more severe,
ly than the rest, on account of having been
before the court once before or. the charge
of homicide. As the jury had found him not
guilty of that offence, the court was inclined
to believe him innocent. He then senten
ced him lo twelve months' imprisonment.
Harris was one of Harney's brave band of
dragoons in the Mexican war, and he fought
gallantly. In the brilliant affair at the
Puente National he had his cap shot away.
