MACKENZIE, Charles Kenneth, diplomatist, born in Scotland in 1788; died in New York city, 6 July, 1862. He was given a classical education and received the degree of doctor in both law and medicine. He entered the army, became aide-de-camp to the Duke of Wellington, and in 1823 accompanied the British commission to Mexico on the recognition of that country's independence, being appointed consul for Vera Cruz. In 1825 he was sent as consul-general to Hayti, and in 1830 he was commissioner of arbitration to the mixed commission at Havana. A dispute with the foreign office in November, 1834, ended his official connection with the British government. He then returned to England and engaged in literature. He was a contributor to reviews, and to the " Encyclopedia Britannica," and was also the leader-writer on a London Conservative journal. Mr. Mackenzie lost his life by the burning of a hotel.
