CORWINE, Amos Breckinridge, journalist, born in Maysville, Kentucky, in 1815; died in New Rochelle, Ohio, 22 June, 1880. His early years were spent on his father's plantation in Mississippi. He published the Yazoo "Banner" from 1840 to 1844. He served during the Mexican war, being a lieutenant in the Mississippi regiment commanded by Jefferson Davis, and was severely wounded at Buena Vista. After that war, in partnership with his brother Samuel, he edited the Cincinnati "Chronicle." During the administrations of Presidents Tyler and Fillmore he was United States consul at Panama. In 1856 he was sent by President Pierce to investigate the Panama Massacres, and on his report were based the treaty and adjustment of damages between the United States and New Granada. He was re-appointed consul, and remained in Panama until 1861, when he was removed.
