early age. He began to preach before he was twenty
years old. He was presented to the living of Gladsmuir,
in East Lothian, in 1743, and acquired a high reputatior
as' an eloquent pulpit orator. He took a prominent part
in the debates of the General Assembly of the Churcr
of Scotland, and obtained great influence in ecclesiastical
affairs. He was the leader of what was called the mode-
rate party, and was more inclined to liberality and tole
ranee than many other members of his church. He has
however, been charged, perhaps not without reason, with
preferring the interests of literature to those of religion

sustained unimpassioned dignity of manner, which, how
ever, too often approaches monotony. In politics he



ai 2. Whig, with a strong leaning towards republicanism.
[le died in June, 1793.

Robespierre, ro'bes'pe-aiF/, (AucuSTiN BON Jo-
SEPH,) called THE YOUNG, a brother of the dictator,
was born at Arras in 1764. He was elected to the
National Convention in 1792. When the Convention
ordered the arrest of his brother, he exclaimed, "In-
clude me with him j I partake his crimes !" He was
executed July 28, 1794-

Robespierre, rob'es-peer, [Fr. pron. roT^es pe^aiR',]
(MAXIMILIEN MARIE ISIDORE,) a French demagogue
and Jacobin, was born at Arras on the 6th of May,
1758. He was sent to the College of Arras, from which
he passed in 1770 to the College Louis-le-Grand, in
Paris. His habits at college were studious and regular.
He studied law, acquired some distinction as an advo-
cate at Arras, and was sent to the States-General in
May, 1789, as one of the sixteen representatives of the
province of Artois. He was a person of small stature,
and had nothing attractive or imposing in his aspect
His voice was weak, his complexion "sea-green," his
disposition reserved and timid, and his moral habits tem-
perate and regular. According to M. fitienne Dumont,
he had a sinister aspect, and a continual blinking (V/w&-
meat) of the eyes. In political opinions he was a radical
democrat. He spoke often in the Constituent Assembly
and in the Jacobin Club, over which he soon acquired
a predominant influence. While men of greater talents
wasted their energies in vain efforts to reform the old
regime by half-way measures and temporizing expedients,
he seems to have perceived the necessity of a radical
revolution. "He will go far," says Mirabeau; "for he
believes all he says."

In the Constituent Assembly he maintained a position
somewhat independent of party. lie defended with zeal
the interests of the inferior clergy, advocated the abo-
lition of the death-penalty, (May, 1791,) and made a
vehement speech against the re-election of the member*
of the Constituent Assembly to the Legislative Assem-
bly, on which question he differed from the othei chiefs
of ihe gauche. On critical occasions he usually presented
himself to the people as a resigned and devoted victim
whom nefarious persons designed to immolate becaus*
he loved the people too well. Thus, after he had de-
nounced the king, the ministry, etc., June 21, 1791. he
said, "I know that I sharpen against myself a thousand
daggers ; but if in the first stage of the Revolution, when
1 was scarcely known in the National Assembly, I offered
my life as a sacrifice to truth, now that the approbation
of mv fellow-citizens has rewarded me for this sacrifice,

I should receive almost as a benefit a death which shall

frevent me from witnessing the public calamities which
foresee to be inevitable." In December, 1791, he
opposed in a speech the declaration of war against
the Emperor of Germany which was proposed by the
Girondists. Although not a great orator, he was
always plausible, and more logical than the most of his
competitors. He never took an active or open part
in the violent acts and outrages of the populace, such
as the attack on the Tuileries, August, 1792.

In September, 1792, he was elected to the Convention
as a deputy from Paris. A few days after the session
began, several Girondist deputies accused him of aspiring
to a dictatorship, and cast on him the responsibility of
the recent massacre in the prisons of Paris. These
charges were repeated by Louvet in a long speech,
(October 29,) to which Robespierre read an artful
and successful defence. The result of this affair was
that Robespierre became the accepted chief of the
Mountain and the implacable enemy of the Girondists.
The first victim of his unscrupulous policy was the
king, whom the Girondists wished to save. He said,
(December 2, 1792,) "I pronounce with regret this
fatal truth ; but Louis must die that the country may
live," ("Louis doit mourir parcequ'il faut que la patrie
rive.") Aided by the commune of Paris and the mob,
he triumphed over the Girondists about June I, 1793.
Then began the Reign of Terror, during which, as presi-
dent of the committee of public safety, (or salvation,)
Robespierre exercised almost unlimited power. Two
of his partisans, Couthon and Saint-Just, were associated
with him in the triumvirate of Robespierre. It is
just to admit that they defended France with great
vigour and ability against the allied armies of nearly
all Europe and the Vendean royalist insurgents.

In March, 1794, Hebert and the Hebertists were
guillotined as exagMs or ultra-revolutionary. It is stated
that when the committee of public safety determined
to destroy Danton and his friends, Robespierre at first
opposed the measure ; but he supported, by a speech in
the Convention, Saint-Just's motion for their arrest, and
Danton, with Desmoulins and others, was executed in
April, 1794. But the death of a powerful rival did not
render his own position secure. His statesmanship was
not adequate to solve the enigma of the Revolutien. He
presided as a high-priest and pronounced an oration at
a public ceremony called the Festival of the Supreme
Being, in June, 1794. In the mean time, multitudes oi
innocent persons, of both sexes, perished daily by the
guillotine. This excessive cruelty provoked against him
a combination of various parties, afterwards called
"Thermidoriens," including Tallien, Barras, Billaud-
Varennes, Fouche, and Carnot. The Convention ordered
the arrest of Robespierre on the 9th Thermidor. His
partisans rallied in the night and released him from
arrest. He was then declared an outlaw by the Conven-
tion, and was guil lotined, with twenty of his partisans, on
the loth Thermidor, (28th of July,) 1794. He was sur-
named " the Incorruptible," because he was proof against
pecuniary temptations. " Robespierre," says Macaulay,
in his article on Barere, "was a vain, envious, and sus-
picious man, with a hard heart, weak nerves, and a
gloomy temper. But we cannot with truth deny that he
was, in the vulgar sense of the word, disinterested, thai
bis private life was correct, or that he was sincerely
zealous for his own system of politics and morals."
