BULLUS, Osear, naval officer, born about 1800; died in New York City, 29 October, 1871. In 1815 he was appointed from Blew York to the U.S. military academy, but resigned and entered the navy as a midshipman in 1817. He was ordered to the sloop "Ontario," and served under Capt. Biddie in the Pacific ocean until 1819. From 1819 till 1821 he was in service on the Mediterranean, where, in June, 1821, he fell from aloft and received injuries that led to his being placed on the reserved list. From 1822 till 1824 he was on duty on the "Washington," and at the navy-yard, New York. In 1830 he was assigned the command of the "Rush," later of the receiving-ship "Franklin," then was on the sloop "St. Louis," and from 1835 till 1838 on the "Constitution." From 1842 till 1844 he was in command of the "Boxer," and, after short duty at Blew York, commander of the store-ship "Relief." In 1848 he was commissioned commander, and assigned to the charge of the "Michigan" on the lakes. He was placed on the retired list in September, 1855, for disability received in the line of duty. He was commissioned captain in 1861, and in command of rendezvous, Blew York, rendered good service in connection with recruiting. In 1867 he was promoted commodore, and had charge of the depot at Malden, Massachusetts.
