Rum'bold, (Colonel RICHARD,) an English repub-
ican, was implicated in the Rye-House Plot, (1683,) and
was owner of the building from which that plot derived
ts name. He escaped to Holland, and in 1685 followed
Argyll in his expedition to Scotland, where he was mor-
illy wounded, and, after a hurried trial, executed.
Rum'ford, (BENJAMIN Thompson,) COUNT, a cele-
rated natural philosopher and economist, born at
Woburn, Massachusetts, March 26, 1753 or 1752.
rlis mother was named Ruth Simonds. After he left
school, about the age of fourteen, he was employed for a
short time as a clerk by a merchant in Salem. In 1770
ic attended lectures on experimental philosophy at
Harvard University. He was school-master at Rumford,
now Concord,) New Hampshire, for about two years,
,1770-72.) In 1772 he married a rich widow of Rum-
brd, named Mrs. Rolfe, and removed with her to Wo-
Durn. He was a person of tall stature, a model of manly
Deauty in form and feature, and had the manners of a
courtier. According to Renwick, he fought at Lexington,
and applied for a commission in the Continental army
j n 1775, but his services were rejected. Renwick speaks
of his "loyalty, manifested by actual service at the
battle of Lexington," but does not say on which side
he fought. His arguments, however, seem designed to
prove that Rumford would have fought for independence
if prejudice and persecution had not driven him into the
ranks of the royalists. He was regarded as a tory by his
fellow-citizens, and was pursued by a mob with threats
of violence. Having resorted for safety to the royalist
camp at Boston, he was sent to England in the autumn
of 1775 as a bearer of despatches to Lord George Ger-
main, who appointed him a clerk in the foreign office.
In the course of four years he rendered such services
that he obtained in 1780 the important position of under-
secretary of state. He returned to the United States in
1781 or 1782 with a commission as major or lieutenant-
colonel in the British army, but never took part in any
action of the war.

The next scene of his eventful and prosperous career
opens at Munich, whither he went in 1784. He soon
became aide-de-camp and chamberlain to the reigning
prince of Bavaria. Having reformed the military es-
tablishment and rendered important public services,
he was rewarded with the rank of major-general, and
appointed a councillor of state. Rising by rapid gra-
dations, he became successively lieutenant-general, com-
mander-in-chief, minister of war, and in 1790 a count of
the Holy Roman Empire. On this occasion he assumed
the title of Rumford, from the town where he resided in
early life. He suppressed mendicity at Munich by the
establishment of work-houses in which beggars were
compelled to earn their subsistence. In devising the
means to warm and clothe the poor with economy, he
was led to experiments on heat and light which resulted
in important discoveries. He proved that gases are
non-conductors, and fluids very imperfect conductors, of
heat, explained that heat is propagated in liquids only
by convection, or the continuous transposition of the

particles of the liquid, and that a flame in open air gives
but little heat except to bodies placed above it. He made
improvements in the construction of chimneys and in
the apparatus for heating and lighting houses. In 1795
he visited London, where he published some essays on
the subjects above mentioned. He returned ^o Munich
in 1796, and was appointed ambassador to l_.ondon in
1798; but the English court would not receive him in
that capacity, because he was a British subject. He
formed the plan of the Royal Institution of London,
founded about 1800. His power and influence at the
court of Munich having ceased, in consequence of the
death of the Elector, in 1799, he removed to France.
His first wife, whom he left in the United States when
he first crossed the Atlantic, was no longer living. He
married the widow of Lavoisier, the great chemist, in
1805; but they soon separated, from mutual repulsion.
He died at Auteuil in August, 1814. His "Essays, Po-
litical, Economical, and Philosophical," were published
in 3 vols., (1798-1806.) The Rumford medal of the Royal
Society derives its name from him.

" It is a matter of just national pride that the two men
who first demonstrated the capital propositions of pure
science, that lightning is but a case of common elec-
tricity, and that heat is but a mode of motion, who first
converted these conjectures of fancy to facts of science,
were not only Americans by birth and education, but
men eminently representative of the peculiarities of
American character, Benjamin Franklin and Benjamin
Thompson." (Edward L. Youmans, "The Correlation
and Conservation of Forces.")

Engravings at Copenhagen," (1835,) and other treatises
on art ; also a number of poems and prose essays on

feated at Marston Moor in 1644. Being made general
of all the royal forces, he commanded the left wing at

Cromwell's army while the main body remained on the

such journeyings, whenever they brought me near hills,
and in all mountain ground and scenery, I had a pleasure,
as early as I can remember, and continuing till I was
eighteen or twenty, infinitely greater than any which has
been since possible to me in anything. . . . Although
there was no definite religious sentiment mingled with
it, there was a continual perception of sanctity in the
whole of nature, from the slightest thing to the vastest,
an instinctive awe mixed with delight ; an indefinable
thrill such as we sometimes imagine to indicate the
presence of a disembodied spirit." ("Modern Painters,"
vol. iii. chap, xvii.) He was educated at Christ Church,
Oxford, gained the Newdigate prize in 1839 for an
English poem entitled " Salsetto and Elephanta," and
graduated in 1842. He received lessons in drawing and
painting from Copley, Fielding, and J. D. Harding, and
became an ardent admirer of Turner. To defend Turner
from hostile critics, he wrote the first volume of his
"Modern Painters," (1843, by a Graduate of Oxford.)
This work, which was expanded into a treatise on art,
nature, etc. and extended to five volumes, established
his reputation as the greatest art-critic of England,
although many of his opinions are paradoxical. It dis-
plays a rare faculty of observation, a rich imagination,
and great mastery of language. He discusses many
questions of ethics and philosophy in an earnest but
rather impulsive and wayward spirit. He devoted sev-
eral years to the study of art in Italy, especially in Venice.
