PINCHEIRA, Jose Antonio (pin-tchi'-e-rah), Chilian guerilla, born in San Carlos about 1801" died in Concepcion about 1850. He formed in early life with his two brothers and other adventurers a band of robbers, which for many years desolated the country south of Maule river. In November, 1825, Pincheira joined a Spanish force of twenty-five men under an officer named Senosain, and unfurled the banner of the royalist cause, so that the government sent an army against him. Being hard pressed, he passed the Andes and invaded the province of Mendoza, the government of which made a regular treaty of peace with him. In 1830 the Chilian government resolved to exterminate the guerillas, and sent Colonel Bulnes with an army against them. The latter penetrated into the mountain regions and began a regular campaign against Pincheira, capturing part of his forces at Roble Guacho, 11 January, 1832, and on the 14th defeating him near tile lagoon of Palanquin, where Pineheira's brother, Pablo, was killed, and the latter escaped with only fifty-two men. At last, surrounded on all sides, he surrendered, on 11 March, under capitulation that insured him a pardon. This was strictly kept by the government, and Pincheira retired to Concepcion.
