BARTLETT, Washington Allen, Californian official, born about 1820; died in 1871. He was the first accolade at San Francisco after the American conquest in 1846. He had been lieutenant on board one of the vessels of the American fleet, and was selected for his new office because of his knowledge of Spanish. His position was extremely difficult, but he succeeded in giving general satisfaction. During a revolt of the native Californians in the early months of 1847. he was captured by an irregular party and held for some time as prisoner. After his release he served once more for some years in the navy, and after 1855 lived in New York city. His daughter married Signor Oviedo, a rich Cuban, in 1859, and the ceremony was celebrated with such magnificence that it was popularly known as the " Diamond Wedding." Under this title a poem descriptive and satirical was written by Edmund C. Stedman, which had a great run, and nearly involved its author in a duel with the enraged father of the bride.
