Beale's Expedition.—Edward F. Beale was born at Washington, D. C., Feb. 4, 1822. At an early age he entered the United States navy and saw his first active service with Commodore Stockton on the Pacific coast during the Mexican war. At the close of the war he resigned his commission in the navy and was made superintendent of Indian affairs in California and New Mexico. In 1853 he led an expedition to explore the central route to the Pacific coast. Leaving Westport, Mo., in May of that year, with 12 riflemen, he went first to Council Grove. From there he passed up the Arkansas river to the mouth of the Huerfano, about 20 miles east of the present city of Pueblo, Col., thence to the San Luis valley, and from there to the coast. A full report of the expedition was written by Gwynn H. Heap, one of the party, and published in 1854.
