was very distasteful to him. In his youth he was styled
the Abbe de Perigord. He was appointed general agent
of the clergy of France in 1780, and held this important
office for eight years. In 1788 he became Bishop of
Autun, and in 1789 a member of the States-General.
Enlisting in the service of liberty and equality, he joined
the Third Estate, and was a member of the committee
appointed by the National Assembly to form a consti-
tution. Among the important measures which he pro-
posed was the confiscation of the lands of the Church.
He also supported the civil constitution of the clergy,
and resigned the bishopric of Autun about the end of
1790. He was the author of an able and celebrated
report on public instruction read in September, 1791.
Early in 1792 he was sent to London, without official
character, to dissuade the British ministry from joining
the allies in hostilities against France. He enjoyed the
society of his friend Madame de Stael, who was then
in England, but was treated with neglect or incivility by
the English aristocrats and ministers. In 1793 he was
ordered by Pitt to quit the island in twenty-four hours,
and, as he had been proscribed by Robespierre, he took
refuge in the United States. By the agency of Che'nier,
he obtained permission to return to France in Septem-
ber, 1795. About this time he wrote an able "Memoir
on the Commercial Relations of the United States with
England," and was admitted into the Institute. In
July, 1797, he became minister of foreign affairs, partly
through the influence of Madame de Stael. He re-
signed in July, 1799, co-operated with Bonaparte in the
revolution of the i8th Brumaire, and was appointed
minister of foreign affairs in November, 1799. He
lain from 180410 1809.

promptitude and certainty of an instinct." His

j, sobriety, and "masterly inactivity" were well

adapted to temper the impetuosity and redundant energy
or ambition of Napoleon. He received the title of Prince
of Benevento in 1806. He offended the emperor by the
boldness with which he opposed some of his measures.
In August, 1807, he resigned his office. Napoleon in-
vited him to resume the direction of foreign affairs in

1813, but he declined.

Talleyrand promoted the restoration of Louis XVIII.,
and insisted on the " Charter," by which a constitutional
government was guaranteed. He became minister of
foreign affairs in the first cabinet of Louis XVIII., repre-
sented France at the Congress of Vienna which met in

1814, and obtained favourable terms for his country by
sowing dissension among the allies. He resigned in
September, 1815, because he would not sign the humili-
ating treaty which was concluded with the allied powers.
He became the leader of the Liberal opposition in the
Chamber of Peers,

of the government in the reigns

Charles X. In September, 1830, he was sent to London
as ambassador and minister-plenipotentiary, and had an
opportunity to realize what had long been with him a
favourite object, the formation of an alliance between
France and England. His mission ended about the close
of 1834. He died in Paris in May, 1838, leaving "Me'-
moires," which he ordered should not be published until
thirty years after his death. Among his famous sayings
is, " Language is given to man to conceal his thoughts."

violent riot of the loth of August, 1792, and became
secretary of the commune of Paris. Having been elected
a member of the National Convention, he voted for the
death of the king, and was an active persecutor of the
Girondists. In 1793 Tallien and Isabeau were sent by
the Convention to Bordeaux, where they established
the reign of terror by numerous executions. He was
induced to adopt a milder policy by the influence of Ma-
dame de Fontenay, nle Cabarrus, who became Madame
Tallien. He returned to Paris in April, 1794, after the
death of his friend Danton, and formed with Fouch^,
Barras, and others a conspiracy against Robespierre,
who denounced Tallien in the Crnvention, June 12,
1794. Tallien was the boldest or most prominent leader
of the party or coalition of parties which triumphed
on the gth Thermidor, July, 1794. It is stated that he
drew a dagger in the Convention and threatened the
life of Robespierre. He continued to oppose the reign
of terror, and used his influence in favour of humanity,
excepting in the case of the royalists captured at Qui-
beron. He took part in the expedition to Egypt in 1798,
with the title of savant, and returned in 1801, after which

or Timour, (tee'moor',) Timoor (Timour or Timur)
Beg or Bee, (i.e. " Lord Timoor,") a celebrated Asiatic
conqueror, born at Kesh, in Independent Tartary, in
1336, was of Mongol extraction, and a descendant of
tengis Khan. About 1361 he supported the cause of
Husein, Khan of Northern Khorassan, against several
neighbouring tribes, and in this war received a wound
in the thigh, from which he acquired the surname of
LENG, (or the "Lame.") He afterwards quarrelled with
Husein, took Balkh, his capital, by storm, (1369,) and
caused himself to be proclaimed Khan of Jagatai. He
then successively brought into subjection Khorassan,
the principal part of Persia, and Armenia, and in 1387
turned his arms against Toktamish-Khan, in Western
Tartary, whom he defeated at Bashkiria, destroying his
whole army. Tamerlane's capital was Samarcand.
Having taken Bagdad and Damascus, subdued Georgia,
and advanced as far as Moscow, he next invaded India,
where, in 1398, he gained a signal victory over the forces
of Mahmood, then Emperor of Delhi, near Delhi. In
1402 he met the famous Bayazeed, (Bajazet,) Sultan of
Turkey, in Angora, and, after one of the most sanguinary
battles on record, totally routed his army, and took the
Sultan prisoner. He was preparing for the invasion of
China, when he died on his march, in 1405. A great
part of his acquisition was lost by his successors soon
after his death.

" Timour," says Sir J. Malcolm, "although one of the
greatest warriors, was one of the worst monarchs. He
was able, brave, and generous, but ambitious, cruel, and
oppressive. He considered the happiness of every human
being as a feather in the scale when weighed against the
advancement of what he deemed his personal glory ; and
that appears to have been measured by the number of
kingdoms he laid waste and the people he destroyed."
(" History of Persia," vol. ii. chap, xi.) " The fame
of Timour," observes Gibbon, " has pervaded the East
and the West, and the admiration of his subjects, who
revered him almost as a deity, may be justified in some
degree by the praise or confessions of his bitterest ene-
mies. He might boast that, at his accession to the throne
Asia was the prey of anarchy and rapine, whilst, under
his prosperous monarchy, a child, fearless and unhurt
might carry a purse of gold from the east to the west.
By their rapine, cruelty, and discord, the petty tyrants
of Persia might afflict their subjects, but whole nations
were crushed under the footsteps of the reformer. The
ground which had been occupied by flourishing cities was
often marked by his abominable trophies, by columns
or pyramids of human heads."

was born in Normandy in 1078, and was a nephew ot

Robert Guiscard, Duke of Apulia. In 1096 he joined

mond, Prince of Tarentum. He was conspicuous for his

valour at the battle of Dorylaeum and the siege of An-

ioch, and was one of the first to mount the walls at the
capture of Jerusalem. He subsequently had a promi-
nent part in the battle of Ascalon, took Tiberias, on the
Sea of Galilee, and received the title of Prince of Tiberias
or Galilee. He died in 1112, having previously defeated

Taney, taw'ne, (ROGER BROOKE,) a distinguished
American jurist, born in Calvert county, Maryland, in
March, 1777. He graduated at Dickinson College, Penn-
sylvania, in 1795, studied law, and was admitted to the
bar in 1799. He was elected a Senator of Maryland in
1816, and became a resident of Baltimore about 1822
He was originally a Federalist ; but he became a partisan
of General Jackson, who appointed him attorney-general
of the United States in 1831. About September, 1833,
he was nominated secretary of the treasury, in place of
William J. Duane, (who was dismissed from the cabinet
because he refused to remove the public deposits from
the Bank of the United States,) but he was rejected
by the Senate. He was nominated associate justice of
the supreme court by President Jackson in 1835 ; but this
nomination was not confirmed by the Senate. In March,
1836, he was appointed chief justice of the supreme court,
in the place of John Marshall, deceased. In 1857, Judge
Taney, yielding to the ever-encroaching and aggressive
spirit of slavery, pronounced an important decision in
the case of Dred Scott, a slave, who had been carried
by his master from Missouri into Illinois, thence to the
territory of Wisconsin, and back to Missouri. Dred
Scott brought a suit for his freedom. Judge Taney
affirmed that for more than a century before the Decla-
ration of Independence the negroes "had been regarded
as beings of an inferior order, and altogether unfit to
associate with the white race, either in social or political
relations, and so far inferior that they had no rights
which the white man was bound to respect, and that the
negro might justly and lawfully be reduced to slavery for
his benefit," He further affirmed that the Missouri
Compromise was unconstitutional, and that the suit must
be dismissed for want of jurisdiction. Died in October,
1864.

preceptor, Dollinger, into the " Old Catholic" movement,
and was appointed a parish priest at Cologne. Among
his works are " \Vahrheit, Schbnheit und Liebe," (1867,)
" Diotima," (a novel, 1873,) " Philosophic und Christen-
thum," (1876,) and several volumes of poems, chiefly
