of Deputies by the voters of Mans, and became the chief

journal, and took a prominent part at the reform ban-
quets of 1847.

During the Revolution of February, 1848, he entered
the Chamber when the regency of the Duchess of Or-
leans was under discussion. By the exertion of great
physical force he occupied the tribune, and, amidst the
violent tumult, spoke against the regency. He was chosen

ment, and became minister of the interior. (See LAMAR

of Lamartine. He lost his popularity with the masses,
and retired from power in June, 1848, when Cavaignac
became dictator. In December, 1848, Ledru-Rollin re-
ceived only 370,119 votes for president, having failed to
obtain the support of the socialists. He was the chief
of the "Mountain" in the Assemblies of 1848 and 1849,
to the latter of which he was elected by five departments,
and made eloquent speeches against the government
In June, 1849, he demanded the impeachment of the
president, and, when this was refused, called on his
partisans to rise in arms. The few who obeyed this call
were quickly dispersed by the troops, and Ledru-Rollin
escaped to England, where he remained many years. In
his absence he was condemned to deportation. He pub
lished a book "On the Decline of England," (2 vols.,
1850,) and united with Kossuth and Mazzini to form a
revolutionary committee for the promotion of the demo-
cratic cause in Europe. Among his publications is
" French Jurisprudence," etc., (" Jurisprudence Fran-
caise, ou Repertoire du Journal du Palais," 8 vols.,
1843-48.) Availing himself of the general amnesty, he
returned to France in 1870. Died December 31, 1874.

don, where he was most kindly received by Sir Joseph
Banks, and in June, 1788, under the patronage of the
African Association, set out on a voyage of discovery
to Central Africa. He reached Cairo in August, but,
while making preparations for his journey, was attacked
by a fever, of which he died. The news of his death
was heard with deep regret by his friends in England,
who had formed the highest opinion of his qualifica-
tions for the arduous task of African exploration. He
was described by Mr. Beaufoy, secretary of the African
Association, as " adventurous beyond the conception of
ordinary men, yet wary and considerate, and appeared
to be formed by nature for achievements of hardihood
and peril."
