Mazarin, maz'a-reen', [Fr. pron. mf ziPrlN' ; It. MA-
ZARINI, mad-za-ree'nee ; Lat, MAZARI'NUS,] (GiULio or
JULES,) CARDINAL, a celebrated courtier and prime min-
ister of France, was born in Italy in 1602. He was edu-
cated in a college of Jesuits at Rome, (where his father,
Pietro Mazarini, resided,) and adopted the profession of
law. He had acquired the reputation of an adroit nego-
tiator in the service of the pope, when, in 1630, he met
Cardinal Richelieu, who secured his attachment to the
interest of France. When the French and Spanish were
about to engage at Casal, he prevented a battle, and ne-
gotiated the treaty of Cherasco in 1631. He was nuncio
extraordinary to France in 1634, and gained the favour
of the French king, who sent him as ambassador to
Savoy in 1640. Through the influence of the French
court, Mazarin was made a cardinal in 1641. The next
year he was admitted into the supreme council. The
death of Richelieu (in 1643) and of Louis XIII. (in 1643)
opened a wider sphere to the ambition of Mazarin, whom
Richelieu recommended as his successor. By the will
of the late king he was declared sole adviser of the
queen-regent, Anne of Austria, in respect to ecclesiastic
affairs, and he soon acquired the principal power in the
government, as well as the confidence of that queen. He
used his power at first with moderation, and courted
popularity by gracious and affable manners. He prose-
cuted the war against Spain which began under his pre-
decessor, and in which Conde and Turenne maintained
the honour of the French arms. A dispute which arose
between the court and the Parliament of Paris was fo
merited by Cardinal de Retz into the revolt of the Paris-
'ans called "the Day of the Barricades," (August 27,
1648,) and was followed by the civil war of the Fronde.
The queen, with her son, Louis XIV., and Mazarin, were
driven out of Paris in 1649 by the Frondeurs. This civil
war was more remarkable for the levity of the people than
for their military exploits. Ladies directed the several
factions, and cabals were made or broken by amorous
intrigues. In the midst of these domestic broils, Maza-
rin had been so fortunate or politic as to conclude with
the German emperor the famous treaty of Westphalia,
(1648,) by which the latter ceded to France the province
of Alsace. In 1651 the cardinal was exiled to Cologne ;
but about two years later he returned to the capital in
triumph, and the end of the rebellion, in 1654, restored
him to his former power. He made in 1655 a treaty of
alliance with Cromwell, who, being solicited as an ally
by the French and the Spanish courts, preferred the
former. He acquired the same influence over the king,
who had attained his majority, as he had exerted over
the queen. It is said that Louis XIV. wished to marry
Marie Mancini, a niece of his minister, but the latter
discouraged the match, and in 1659 negotiated a marriage
with a Spanish princess. Mazarin once said "Louis con-
tained the material for four kings and one honest man."
He died at Vincennes in March, 1661. His person was
remarkably handsome, and his manners fascinating.
"Mazarin," says Mignet, "had a far-seeing and invent-
ive mind, a character rather supple than feeble. His
device was 'Le Temps et moi.'" Much diversity of
opinion exists respecting his merit as a statesman ; but
it may safely be affirmed that he was able and skilful,
and, though avaricious, he was not a cruel or revengeful
minister.

wild horses of the Ukraine and carried to the country
of the Cossacks. He was kindly received by them,
and rose to be hetman, t>r commander-in-chief of their
armies, about 1687. When Peter the Great attempted
to take possession of the Ukraine, Mazeppa strongly
opposed the measure, but, finding resistance vain, en-
tered into a negotiation with Charles XII. of Sweden
for the independence of his country. The plan being
discovered, and Mazeppa deserted by his troops, he

MAZZUCHELLI



Mazzinghi, mJt-sen'gee ? (JOSEPH,) an English mu-
sician and composer, born in London in 1768, was
patronized by George III. and George IV. Among his
most popular operas we may name "The Blind Girl,"
" The Exile," and " Paul and Virginia." Died at Bath
in 1844.

Mazzini, mit-see'iiee, (GIUSEPPE,) a distinguished
Italian patriot and writer, born at Genoa, June 28, iHo8,
was educated for the profession of law. In his youth he
wrote a number of literary articles for the " Indicatore
Genovese" and other journals, and was an adherent of
the romantic school. He devoted himself at an early
age to the liberation and unity of Italy, which was then
degraded and oppressed by Austria and by various petty
despots. In 1830 he joined the Society of Carbonari,
which he proposed to reform. Having been banished
or proscribed, he retired in 1831 to Marseilles, where he
organized a political association called " Young Italy,"
(La Giovint Italia,) whose watchword was " God and
the People," and whose fundamental idea was that the
liberty of the Italians can only be secured by the union
of the several states or kingdoms into one nation. He
propagated his principles by writings, and, during a
long period of exile and adversity, pursued his purpose
with invincible constancy.

About 1842 he became a resident of London, and
began to contribute political and scientific articles to
Tarious journals, among which was the " Westminster
Review." His letters were opened in the post-office in
1844 by the British secretary for the home department,
Sir James Graham. The revolutionary movements of
1848 restored him to his native country. He issued a
journal called "Italia del Popolo," and, although he
preferred a republic, was disposed to co-operate with
King Charles Albert in resistance to Austrian domina-
tion, and he enlisted under the standard of Garibaldi.
In February, 1849, he went to Rome, in which a republic
had recently been organized after the flight of the pope.
He was quickly recognized as the leader and master-
spirit of the republicans, and in March of that year
Mazzini, Sam, and Armellini were appointed triumvirs.
They defended Rome resolutely against the French
army, by which that city was at length captured in July,
1849. Mazzini then went into exile, and chose London
as the base of his operations. He associated himself
with Kossuth and Ledru-Rollin to form an international
revolutionary committee about 1851.

In 1857 he incited an insurrection in Northern Italy,
nd went to Genoa to direct it ; but the movement failed.
He co-operated with Garibaldi in his victorious expedi-
tion to Sicily in 1860, and opposed the project which
Napoleon III. formed for a confederation of Italian
states. In 1861 he republished, with additions, an es-
say " On the Unity of Italy," in which he says, " I know
that the idea of a confederation is both the counsel and
design of one whom many Italians still regard as the
friend and protector of Italy ; but I know, too, that he is
treacherous, a foreigner, and a despot. That he should
seek to weaken in order to dominate us is easily under-
stood ; but the mere fact that the suggestion springs
from such a source ought to be one of the most powerful
warnings against it."

Some of his predictions have been verified by recent
events in Italy, which have tended to raise his reputation
for sagacity and practical wisdom. He is the author of
a work entitled "The Duties of Man," (1858; English
version, 1862,) which enjoys great popularity in Italy,
and of many other works. The " Life and Writings ol
Joseph Mazzini," in English, have appeared in 6 vols.,
(1864-70.) He died at Pisa, March 10, 1872, and was
buried in his native town.

The character of Mazzini is well described by Thomas
Carlyle in a letter to the London "Times," June, 1844
reprinted in the " Westminster Review" for September
of that year. He says, " I have had the honour to know
M. Mazzini for a series of years ; and I can, with great
freedom, testify to all men that he, if I have ever seen
one such, is a man of genius and virtue, a man of sterling
reracity, humanity, and nobleness of mind, one of those
rjje men, numerable, unfortunately, but as units in this
d, who are worthy to be called martyr-souls ; who



n silence piously in their daily life understand and
Jractise what is meant by that"

Ijexikon" for 1859.

in 1523, and was employed by Clement VII. to execute
a number of works in that city. His style, formed
on that of Correggio and Raphael, is characterized by
exceeding grace and delicacy of form and softness of
colouring, and it was said by his admirers that " the
spirit of Raphael had passed into him." Among his
master-pieces are the " Madonna delta Rosa," in the
jallery of Dresden, an "Annunciation," in the principal
:hurch of Viadana, the "Madonna with Saint Margaret,
Saint Jerome," etc., in the Museum at Bologna, the

pendent command of the army of the Potomac. My
instructions for that army were all through him, ana
were general in their nature, leaving all the details and the
execution to him. The campaigns that followed proved
kim to be the right man in the right place." In August,
1864, he was appointed a major-general of the regular
