BARTLETT, John Sherren, journalist, born in Dorsetshire, England, in 1790; died in New Jersey, 24 August 1863. He received a medical education in London, and was appointed surgeon in the British navy in 1812. During his passage to the West Indies in the " Swallow " he was captured by the United States frigates " President" and "Congress" under Com. Rodgers, and was taken as prisoner to Boston, where he was under surveillance until his discharge in 1813. At the close of the war he married a lady of Boston, and began the practice of his profession in that city. He subsequently removed to New York, and, on 22 June 1822, established " The Albion," widely known as an organ of English conservative politics. After conducting this journal with great ability, he relinquished the editorship in 1848, and in 1855 established a paper of similar character in Boston, "The Anglo-Saxon," which continued about two years. He subsequently published at Liverpool " The European," designed to furnish a weekly summary of foreign news for American circulation. In 1857 he became British consul in Baltimore.
