Juares, jO<- A'rz, [Sp. pron. Hoo-i're'th,] (P.ENITO,)
A Mexican statesman, born in Oajaca in 1806, and saic

elected to Congress in 1846, and was Governor of Oa-
jaca from 1848 to 1852. In 1853 he was banished by
Santa Ana. He joined the party of Alvarez, who became
president in 1855, and served under him as minister of
justice. In 1857 he was appointed secretary of state by
Comonfort, who was driven from power in January, 1858.
Juarez was recognized as the successor of Comonfort by
the Liberals, but was opposed by the clerical party in a
long civil war. He was elected president about 1861,
soon after which Mexico was invaded by a French army.
Having gained several victories, the French took the
city of Mexico in June, 1863, and Maximilian of Austria
assumed the imperial power, under the patronage of
Napoleon III. Juarez was reduced to a critical position,
and his cause seemed desperate ; but at length the French
army was withdrawn in 1866, and the Liberals quickly
recovered the ascendency. He was elected presideni
again in October, 1867. Died July 18, 1872.

Ju'ba [Gr. 'loSaf] L succeeded his father, Hiempsal,
on the throne of Numidia about 50 B.C. In the war
between Caesar and Pompey he supported the cause of
the latter, and gained a decisive victory over Curio, a
lieutenant of Caesar. After Pompey's defeat at Phar-
salia, Juba continued to support his cause in Africa, and
for some time held even Caesar in check. He was, how-
ever, defeated by the dictator at the battle of Thapsus,
and soon after killed himself, 42 B.C., in preference to
gracing the triumph of the conqueror. His kingdom
was reduced to a Roman province, of which the historian
Sallust was appointed the first governor.

Queen of Egypt, by Antony. Juba was distinguished

for his learning, ability, and justice. He was the author

writings with just commendation. He died about 20 B.C.
