Was born in Ireland in 1737; being fired with the love of liberty, and in some measure naturalized to America by marriage, he early espoused the republican cause, and took command of the force destined against Canada; took Montreal in 1775, and was killed in storming Quebec, the same year.--A monument was erected to his memory at St. Paul's Church, New-York, by order of Congress--during his short, but glorious career, he conducted with so much prudence, as to make it doubtful whether we ought to admire most the goodness of the man, or the address of the general.
