PALLISER, John, Canadian explorer, born in Comragh. Waterford. Ireland. 29 January, 1817. He was a brother of the late Sir William Palliser, inventor of the projectiles and guns that bear his name. He went to Canada in early life and passed much time among the Indians of the northern woods and western prairies. He conducted an expedition into the Indian country in 1856-'7, and in 1857-'60, under a commission from the British government, explored a large part of the northwest of British North America as far as the shores of the Pacific. He also topographically determined the international boundary-line from Lake Superior in Canada, across the Rocky mountains, and thence to the sea-coast range. His report was published in the parliamentary papers of 1861. He published " The Solitary Hunter, or Sporting Adventures in the Prairies" (London, 1853).
