As the case of this extraordinary wo

interest of the people of this country, we
think it will not be uninteresting to give
our readers a slight sketch of her early
life. Mira Clark, (now Mrs. Gaines,) who
is well known to our citizens, having in
early life resided here,, was born ; in New
Orleans ; her father, Daniel, (well known
in the political and commercial history of
Louisiana,) being a partner of Col. Davis,
of this country. Her father died, and
when only a few months old, she was
adopted by Col. Davis, and brought up as
tificates of her husband, Daniel Clark,
from whom she had been seperated some
time before his death. Proceedings were
immediately commenced, but for a while
with a small prospect of success. Threats
made up a company of volunteers over which
