The Weekly Arizonian, 31 March 1859, Tubac, Arizona. Death of Gen James Gadsden. The newspapers in the States announce the death of Gen. Gadsden, of South Carolina, who died at his residence in Charleston on the 29th of December, last, aged sixty years. Appointed Minister Plenipotentiary and Envoy Extraordinary of the United States to Mexico, in 1853, General Gadsden's name is chiefly associated with the Treaty executed in 1854, between Mexico and the United States. That insturment is generally known as the "Gadsden Treaty." Under its provisions, the boundary-line between the two countries was defiinitely settled, a Commission was appointed to survey the line, and the 6th and 7th articles of the Treaty of Gaudaloupe(sic)-Hidalgo were abrogated; Mexico granting the free navigation of the Colorado river, and the Gulf of California; also relinquishing her title to the proposed territory of Arizona. The tract of country thus acquired was for a long time known as the "Gadsden Purchase." In consideration of the stipulation agreed upon on the part of Mexico, the United States guaranteed the payment to Mexican Government of the sum of ten millions of dollars. Mr. Gadsden, since his retirement from diplomatic life, has taken no active part in national affairs.
