Manin, mi-neen', (DANIELP.,) an eminent Italian
patriot and statesman, born in Venice in May, 1804, was
educated for the profession of advocate. He was a re-
publican, and promoted the liberation of Venetia by legal
means rather than by arms. In March, 1848, he pro-
claimed a republic at Venice, and became president of
the provisional government. Having vainly opposed
the annexation of Venetia to Piedmont, he resigned in
July, 1848. He was soon recalled, and governed Venice
as dictator during the siege, which lasted a year, and
fnded, after a heroic struggle, in August, 1849. He
went into exile, and died in Paris in 1857. His remains
were honoured with a magnificent public funeral, by
order of the Italian Parliament, in the metropolitan
church of Venice, in March, 1868.

Magazine" for November, 1857; "Westminster Review" for April,
1860.

Manin or Manini, ma-nee'nee, (LoDovico,) the last
Doge of Venice, was born about 1727. He was elected in
1788, a period when the republic manifested evident signs
of approaching ruin. He refused to join Austria in a
coalition against the French in 1 792, and remained neutral
In the war that ensued. Venice was invaded by the
French in 1797, the form of the government was changed,
and Manini retired to private life.

See DARU, " Histoire de Venise."

Manini, ma-nee'nee, (GIUSEPPE,) an Italian writer on
theology and history, was born at Ferrara in 1750; died
in 1834.

Manini, (Looovico.) See MANIN.

Man'ley, (JAMES R.,) an American physician, born
in the latter part of the eighteenth century, became
professor in the Medical College of New York. Died
in 1851.

Manley, (JOHN,) CAPTAIN, an American naval officer
of the Revolution, born in 1734. He performed several
important services. Died in Boston in 1793.

Man'ley, (MARY DE LA RIVIERE,) a popular English
authoress, born in Guernsey about 1672, was the daughter
of Sir Roger Manley. To procure a subsistence, she
wrote "The Royal Mischief," (1696,) a tragedy, which
was successful. Her next work was a romance called
"Memoirs of the New Atalantis," containing severe
strictures on some of the persons in power, which caused
her to be prosecuted and imprisoned for libel. She
wrote political articles for the Tory ministry between
1710 and 1714, and edited the " Examiner" with ability
after Dean Swift had retired from the direction of that
paper. She also left an autobiography, and some novels
and plays remarkable for their gross indelicacy as well
as for their literary power. Died in 1724.

See GIBBER, " Lives of the Poets."

Man'Q-a Gens, one of the most ancient and cele-
brated of the patrician getites or tribes of Rome. The
family names of the Manlii were Cincinnatus, Acidinus,
Capitolinus, Torquatus, and Vulso. Among the emi-
nent persons of this.fjw was

Man'U-us Cap-it-o-li'nus, (MARCUS,) who was
elected consul in 392 B.C. In 399 the Gauls under Bren-
nus captured Rome and besieged the Capitol, which
Manlius and others defended. According to tradition, an
attempt of the Gauls to surprise this fortress by night was
defeated by Manlius, who was awakened by the clamour
of a flock of geese. For this service he received the
surname of CAPITOLINUS. He became a champion of
the popular party, or plebeians, in 385, spent his for-
tune freely for the relief of those who were oppressed
by debt, and was accused of aspiring to royalty. His
enemy Camillus was appointed dictator, and Manlius,
having been tried for treason and condemned to death
by the patricians, was thrown from the Tarpeian rock in
381 B.C.

LIUS VICTOR, " De Viris illustribus."

lius Capitoli'nus Torqua'tus, a popular Roman hero,
was the son of L. Manlius Imperiosus, who was dictator

lio



in 362 or 363 B.C. He signalized 'his filial affection by
extorting from Pomponius an oath that he would desist
from the prosecution of his father. In 359 he was elected
a military tribune. He killed in battle a Gaul of gigantic
stature and despoiled him of a chain, (torques,) from
which he derived the surname TORQUATUS. He was ap-
pointed dictator in 353, and again in 349 B.C. Having
been elected consul for the third time in 340, he defeated
the Latins, and punished with death his own son, who
had violated orders by fighting a single combat with
one of the enemy.

See Liw. " History of Rome," books vii., viiL ; AURHLIUS Vie-
R, "De Viris illustribus;" P. EKERMAN, " Dissertatio de T. Man-
Torquato," 1767.

Manlius Torquatus, (Tijus.) a Roman general, of
the same family as the preceding, was consul in 235 B.C.
Sardinia having been subjected by him in that year, the
temple of Janus was shut, for the second time in the his-
tory of Rome, because the Romans enjoyed a universal
peace. He was re-elected consul in 234, and made a
speech against the motion to ransom the prisoners taken
by Hannibal at Cannae, (216.) In 215 B.C. he gained a
decisive victory over .the Carthaginians in Sardinia. He
was appointed dictator in 208, and died in 202 B.C.

See Liw, " History of Rome," books xxii., xxiii., xxv., etc.

Manlius Vul'so,(CNEius,) a Roman general, elected
consul about 190 B.C. He conquered the Gauls of Ga-
latia, and received the honour of a triumph in 186 B.C.

Man'ly, (BASIL,) a Baptist minister, bom in Chatham
county, North Carolina, in 1798. He became president
of the University of Alabama in 1837. Died in 1868.

Mann, (HORACE,) LL.D., an eminent American edu-
cationist, born in Franklin, Norfolk county, Massachu-
setts, May 4, 1796. His father was a farmer in limited
circumstances, so that Horace was obliged to procure by
his own exertions the means of obtaining an education.
The books to which he had access in early life, as he
informs us, "were few, and their contents meagre and
miserable." "My teachers," he adds, "were very good
people, but they were very poor teachers." There was,
however, no lack of hard work, and in summer his
labours often encroached upon the hours which should
have been devoted to sleep ; yet, with all these disad-
vantages, his mind gave early proof of uncommon power
and intense activity. He had earned his school-books,
when a child, by braiding straw; and his severe and
frugal life gave him the habit of depending solely upon
himself for the gratification of all his wants. When
about the age of twenty, he commenced the study of
Latin, and in six months prepared himself to enter the
sophomore class in Brown University, at Providence,
Rhode Island, where he graduated with the highest
honours in 1819. The subject of his discourse on that
occasion was " The Progressive Character of the Human
Race." This was always a favourite theme with him,
and his first oration may be said to have foreshadowed
his subsequent career as philanthropist and statesman.
While at Providence he became acquainted with the
young lady whom he afterwards married. She was the
daughter of Dr. Messer, president of the university. In
1821 he entered the law school at Litchfield. and in 1823
was admitted to the bar. He commenced the practice
of law at Dedham. He was elected in 1827 to the State
legislature, and during his connection with that body was
distinguished for the zeal with which he devoted himself
to the interests of education and temperance. In the
practice of his profession he had adopted the principle
never to take the unjust side of any cause : it is said that
he gained four out of five of all the contested cases in
which he was engaged. The extraordinary influence
which he exerted over the minds of the juries was owing
in a great measure to the confidence which all felt in
his honesty of purpose. In 1833 he removed from
Dedham to Boston, and soon after was elected to the
State Senate. In 1836, and again in 1837, he was chosen
president of the Senate. About this time he became
acquainted with Dr. W. E. Channing and Dr. S. G. Howe,
for whom he ever afterwards cherished the sincerest
respect and affection.

To his enlightened philanthropy and untiring efforts
was due the establishment of the State Lunatic Hospital

Massachusetts Board of Education, (then recently organ-
ized,) and was unanimously re-elected to the same posi-
tion for eleven successive years. From the moment that
he entered upon his new duties, he devoted himself to
them with undivided attention and unremitting zeal. Hy
his lectures and writings he awakened an interest in the
cause of education that had never been felt before.
Through his influence, important changes were made in
the school laws of Massachusetts, and a thorough reform
was effected in the educational system of the State.

In May, 1843, Mr. Mann married as his second wife
Miss Mary Feabody, daughter of Dr. Nathaniel Peabody
and sister-in-law of Mr. Hawthorne; and immediately
