Death of a heroic lady.

--Mrs. Mary Ann Patten, widow of the late Captain Joshua Patten, died in Boston on Sunday, of consumption. Mrs. Patten, it will be remembered by many, says the Courier, was the heroic wife, who, some three or four years ago, nursed her sick husband when prostrated by illness and incurable blindness, and took charge of his ship — the Neptune's Car — and in spite of the officer's desire to put into Valparaiso, navigated the vessel to San Francisco and thus saved much detention as well as expense to the underwriters. Mrs. Patten had nearly completed her twenty-fourth year.
