hreatened with imprisonment, but procured bail. There he issued a series of vigorous pamphlets, called Rush lights, in which he exhibited, in vivid colors, the various phases of character of all engaged in his prosecution. Then he went back to England, and issued Porcupine's works, in 12 octavo volumes, which sold largely on both sides of the Atlantic. In these he exhibited such pictures of his American enemies that he tasted the sweets of revenge. In 1802 he began his famous Weekly political register, which he conducted with ability about thirty years, but which caused him to incur fines and imprisonment because of his libellous utterances. He again came to the United States in 1817, but returned to England in 1819, taking with him the bones of Thomas Paine. He continued the business of writing and publishing, and many of his books, written in vigorous Anglo-Saxon, are very useful. He entered Parliament in 1832, and was a member three years. He died in Farnham, June 18, 1835.

having the subject brought before the legislature of New York, then in session at Poughkeepsie, and that body, by a resolution drawn by Hamilton and presented by his father-in-law, General Schuyler, recommended (July 21, 1782) the assembling of a national convention to revise the Articles, reserving the right of the respective legislatures to ratify their determinations. In the spring of 1783 Hamilton, in Congress, expressed an earnest desire for such a convention. Pelatiah Webster and Thomas Paine wrote in favor of it the same year, and in 1784 Noah Webster wrote a pamphlet on the subject which he carried in person to General Washington. In that pamphlet Webster proposed a new system of government which should act, not on the States, but directly on individuals, and vest in Congress full power to carry its laws into effect. The plan deeply impressed the mind of Washington. Events in North Carolina and Massachusetts made many leading men anxious about the future. They saw the

is statement called out loud complaints from the French minister (Gerard), for it exposed the duplicity of his government, and to soothe the feelings of their allies, Congress, by resolution, expressly denied that any gratuity had been received from the French Court previous to the treaty of alliance. This resolution gave Beaumarchais a valid claim upon Congress for payment for supplies which he, under the firm name of Hortales & Co., had sent to America (see Beaumarchais, Pierre Augustin). Paine's indiscretion cost him his place. He was compelled to resign his secretaryship. The discussion among the diplomatic agents soon led to the recall of all of them excepting Dr. Franklin, who remained sole minister at the French Court. Deane, who was undoubtedly an able, honest man, preferred claims for services and private expenditures abroad, but, under the malign influence of the Lees, he was treated with neglect and fairly driven into poverty and exile, and died in Deal, England, Aug.

Inglis, Charles 1734-1816 Clergyman; born in Ireland, in 1734. From 1764 to the Revolution he was assistant rector of Trinity Church, New York; and was rector from 1777 to 1783. He adhered to the royal cause, and departed for Nova Scotia with the loyalists who fled from New York City in 1783. His letters evinced considerable harsh feeling towards the American patriots as fomenters of rebellion. Dr. Inglis was consecrated bishop of Nova Scotia in 1788, and in 1809 became a member of the governor's council. He published an answer to Paine's Common sense, which made him obnoxious to the patriots, and they confiscated his estate. He died in Halifax, N. S., Feb. 24, 1816. His son John was made bishop of Nova Scotia in 1825, and died in 1850; and his grandson, Gen. Sir John Eardley Wilmot Inglis, born in Halifax in 1814, was the brave defender of Lucknow.

ng the troops on the Kentucky and Tennessee shores in charge of General McCown, he, with a considerable number of his best soldiers, departed for Corinth to check a formidable movement of National troops through middle Tennessee towards Northern Alabama. The vigorous operations of Pope after he passed through the wonderful canal hastened the crisis. McCall and his troops, in their efforts to escape from the island, were intercepted by Pope's forces under Generals Stanley, Hamilton, and Paine; and on April 8, 1862, Island The Carondelet. Number Ten, with the troops, batteries, and supports on the main, was surrendered. Over 7,000 men became prisoners of war; and the spoils of victory were 123 cannon and mortars, 7,000 small-arms, many hundred horses and mules, four steamboats afloat, and a very large amount of ammunition. The fall of Island Number10 was a calamity to the Confederates which they never retrieved. It caused widespread alarm in the Mississippi Valley, for it ap

Miller, William 1782-1849 Founder of the sect of Millerites, or Adventists (q. v.); born in Pittsfield, Mass., Feb. 5, 1782; was mainly self-taught during his leisure moments while working on a farm. At the beginning of the War of 1812 he was a recruiting officer, and later a captain in the army. During his early manhood he lead and advocated the teachings of Voltaire, Thomas Paine, and Hume. Subsequently he was converted to Christianity, and joined a Baptist church. He became a deep student of the Old Testament prophecies, which convinced him that Christ would reappear to judge the world between the years 1831 and 1844. Churches were thrown open to him everywhere, and multitudes flocked to hear his interpretation of prophecy. When the time set by Father Miller, as he was popularly called, for the second advent of Christ had expired, the majority of his followers, about 50,000, did not give up their faith in the speedy coming of the Saviour.
