age of nine, about which time he began to perform in
sublic concerts, and by his wonderful powers produced
:he most extraordinary excitement among the audience.
When not yet fifteen, he escaped from the control of his
ather, and commenced business on his own account
But, unhappily, the admiration and flatteries which he
received, and the control of large sums of money, which
he procured almost without effort, exerted a most in-
jurious effect on his moral character, and he fell into
habits of gambling and into the practice of other vices.
About 1802 he retired for a time from public view ; but
his former habits of life, and the necessity of excitement,
soon induced or compelled him to return. After he had
given concerts in the great cities of Italy, he visited Vienna
in 1828, and was received with the wildest enthusiasm.
His performances created a furor wholly unparalleled
in the history of music. He gained enormous sums of
money in Paris and London. His marvellous perform-
ance on a single string excited especial astonishment
He composed sonatas, etc. for the violin, which display
an inventive genius. Died at Nice in 1840. With all
his rare gifts, he is said to have been sensual, extremely
avaricious, and excessively vain.

Paine, (THOMAS,) a political and deistical writer,

His father was a Quaker, and brought up his son to his
own trade, that of stay-maker. Paine married young,
and settled in 1759 at Sandwich. Having lost his wife
about 1761, he removed to London, where for a short
time he was employed as a school-teacher. After seve-
ral changes of business and residence, he emigrated to
America in 1774, with a letter of recommendation from
Dr. Franklin, whom he met in London. He became
editor of the " Pennsylvania Magazine," and gave an
impulse to the Revolution by his famous pamphlet called



" Common Sense," in which he advocated the policy of
separation and independence. It was issued in January,
1776, and appears to have contributed in an extraordi-
nary degree to the advancement of republican ideas.
He enlisted as a volunteer in the army in the autumn
of 1776. To counteract the depression of spirits which
prevailed in the winter of 1776-77, he published "The
Crisis," a periodical, which appeared at irregular in-
tervals for some years and was very successful. The
phrase " These are the times that try men's souls" was
first used in the "Crisis." He was secretary to the
committee on foreign affairs in Congress from April,
'777i to January, 1779, and went to France in 1781, with

States. His services in the Revolution were rewarded

dollars, and the State of New York gave him three
hundred acres of land.

In 1787 he visited France, from which he passed to
England. He invented an iron bridge, and procured the
construction of such a bridge at Rotherham, in York-
shire. He returned to Paris in 1789, and, in answer to
Burke's "Reflections on the French Revolution," wrote
his " Rights of Man," (1791,) which obtained great popu-
larity. In September, 1792, he was elected a member
of the French National Convention by the citizens of
the Pas-de-Calais. He acted with the Girondists, and,
in the trial of the king, voted for his banishment About
the end of 1793 he was expelled from the Convention, as
a foreigner, by the Jacobins, who also issued a decree
that all natives of England found in France should be
imprisoned. He was accordingly cast into prison, and
narrowly escaped death in the reign of terror. In
November, 1794, he was released, through the influence
of James Monroe, (afterwards President of the United
States,) and resumed his seat in the Convention. He
produced in 1795 a deistical work entitled "The Age of
Reason," which gave great offence to many of his polit-
ical friend?. This work, although characterized by a
certain vigour as well as flippancy of style, and though
from its very indecency calculated to obtain currency
among the less refined portion of society, yet, being
conspicuously wanting in a spirit of candour, and betray-
ing an utter deficiency in true scholarship, is likely to exert
but little influence upon intelligent and reflecting minds,
and least of all on those whose learning qualifies them
to judge of the ignorance of the writer and the essential
shallowness of most of his arguments. He returned to
the United States in 1802, and passed his latter years
in private life and comparative obscurity. He became
intemperate in the latter part of his life. Died in New
York in June, 1809.
