IX. Esoisxixo of Order bt Tna
The motive cf Napoleon in refusing to
accept an bouorablo appointment iu the
field gives rise to speculation. His ac
tios reveals both character aud policy.
Ho deemed it not expedient to change
from artillery to infantry, unless to the
independent command of an army. He
now foresaw the tremendous opportuni
ties about to be afforded to military gen
ius. War was to be the order of the
day, not only for France, buUfor all Eu
rope. Tho field opening for the Army of
tho West vras narrow. A general in
that quarter must assail Frenchmen
In La Ven-loe thora was no British
flag as at Toe Ion to add provocation,
and justify attack. Loyaliiin there wa-
rampant, and General Ilocho, who takes
tho placo intended for Bonaparte, will
find it hot work to reduco tho insurgent
Vcndeaus to subjection. Tlie prescienco
cf Ka;oleo: in refusing the command
lies in the question, What will become
of Ilochc? Moreover, tho rapid changes
in the military management of tbe Re
public left little- doubt in Napoleon's
mind that his services would soon bo
songht. Finally, tbo striking of his
name from tho list of general officers
was only from t!io list of those on active
dut j. Thus his rank was preserved with
little injury to his future prospects.
Ou the lth of September, 1VJ I, Na
poleon, partially restored to favor, was
given the command of tho artillery in
a proposed expedition to Corsica; and
this p-vt ho nominally held ntftil March
of 1790; but the period was without
events. Meanwhile, finding himself
with no command at all, he concoived
what may be regarded as his first great
project of statesmanship.
Bonaparto perceived that the ultimate
enemy of tho ascendency of Franco was
England, and that one great arm of her
power was her influence in tho Eastern
Mediterranean countries. This might be
broken, mark it well! !,-; Vic ayenry of
Turkey. Tho tborght of tho Corsican
wasthis: If the Republican administra
tion of France will send .Vc to Constan
tinople, to orgauize aud disciplino tho
Turki.-h army, then tho Ottoman power
will be suuiciently strengthened aud
Enrnpoanized to renounce tho influence
of (ireat Britain and, in full autonomy,
to become a member of a possible coali
tion of European powers against the
common enemy of all!
During tho period cf bis enforced in
activity at Paris, Napoleon prepared a
plan intended for tho National Conven
tion, outlining Lis purposa It was a
virtual petition that ho be sent to Con
stantinople, with sis or seven competent
officers, to organize tho military power
of tbe Turkish empire against Great
Britain in tho East. Bonrrienue justly
remarks that if the clerk of the War
Ofiico had only written tho word "grant
ed" on Napoleon's paper, that onoword
would probably have changed tho polit
ical fate of Europe for centuries to
come. Napoleon at this timo was twenty-six
years of cge. llis scheme was
worthy of Richelieu, of Talleyrand, cf
Metternich, of Disraeli iu his ripest
Tho word ' 'granted" was not written.
The French Revolution rapidly worked
out its own results, and iu doing so pro
vided a place for Bonaparte according
to the higher laws of destiny. After the
oveithrow of tha Terror tho Convention
went on, rather temperately, to com
plete the new frame cf government
called tho "Constitution of tho Year
IIL " That instrument was adopted on
the 22nd of August, 179o. It proved to
be not sufficiently intense for the Etates
mauship of the Faubourgs. The Parisian
centers of agitation beg;in to resound
with denunciations cf the latent aristoc
racy in the new plan of government.
For about a mouth the broil was kept
up by democra:io pamphleteers and or
ators who made the basements of St.
Antoine vocal aud smoky with their ob
jurgations. Then the mobs began to rise in sacred
right of insurrection. Several of the
Forty-eighth Sections took up arms
against the Convention; and that great
body was imperiled by the onrushing of
a counter revolution. Matters came to a
crisis in the beginning of October. Tbe
Convention had to protect itself by force
r perish. Swift, swift was the wcrk
now necessary to be done. The stifled,
but not extinct. Jacobinism of Paris be
gan o bellow; and mobs from the dis
affected quarters of the city came on rn
mnltnousiy to assail the Convention
Ball and overthrow the existing government.
Merer has history shown a mora dr
matio scene than that which now en
Euod. It was the 5th of October, 1795.
In the peril of the hour tho Convention
drew to itself the troops that were at ill
faithful to the established order. A
commander was necessary. By a hasty
decree this dangerous honor was eon
ferrod on Paul Francois Bams, presi
dent cf the Convention. lie was intrust
ed with the fearful responsibility of
protecting tho body and preserving; ml
possible, tho half-ripe but ripening
fruits cf six years of legislative toil and
travail. Flo had already shown himself
capablo in two preceding riotSL This
one, hoTvever, was mora formidable.
What bo most of all needed in the emer
gency was a real commander, who had
the courage aud skill to extemporize,
with all hasto, a division of troops for
the defense of the government. Barras
arose in his place, and nominated as his
lieutenant and second ia command Na
poleon Bonaparte. He bad soen that
oOicer at his guns before Toulon.
Napoleon himself was sitting, ob
scurely, in the gallery when his name
was presented for the perilous duty. He
accepted; and immediately there was
speedy work. A young officer, whom
Napoleon knew, Joachim Murat by
name whom history will presently re
cord as tho great cavalry general of the
empire was sent with all speed out to
tho Champ do Sablons, to whirl in the
batteries stationed there. In a few hours
guns wero planted around tho Conven
tion llr.il, and at the near-by bridges of
the Seine, commanding all lines of ap
proach ; and at the breeches stood grim
guuuers with lighted matches.
Hero, then, was business for life or
death. The insurrection rolled itself in
great volumes along the streets. It
might be seefl coming on like the sea.
The Section Lcpellctier leads the van.
Tho insurgents get possession of tho
church of Sc. Roch, nearby, and then of
Pout Neuf, aud then bristlo up face to
face with the guns of the Corsican.
There is not a moment's hesitation. The
order to lire is quick and sharp. Tbe
Convent icu Hall is suddenly shaken to
foundation stones with the roar of ar
tillery. The guns are loaded with grape
aud canister. Horrid gaps are cut in
long bloody alloys through tho insurgent
mob. Men Frenchmen are blown by
hundreds to horrid death. They go back
before tbo hail of destruction. The Na
tional Convention is saved. General
Bounparto has the honor of suppressing
tho last mob of tho French Revolution !
Strango to uoto what tho effect of all
this was on tho man himself. He was
in nowise, jubilant Indued ho had hesi
tated for a half hear before accepting
the placo of general against the revolt
ed Sections. In his report ho covered up
his own responsibility as the facts gave
him opportunity to do making it ap
pear, contrary to bis wont, that not he,
but vthem, hud put down the mob. He
had acted enly under orders of the Na
tional Convention and General Barras!
Ever through life, moreover, he looked
back with regret to this hour aud event
of his career. ' Doubtless, at bottom, he
was a Jacobin himself; but he was an
Imperial Jacobin. Tho two elements in
his character did not consist; tbo ono
was at war with tho other.
Thus much only is certain, that Na
poleon would gladly havo had bis great
triumph over the Parisian insurgents
blotted from tho record. No doubt ho
was at heart at ono with insurrection;
but be was also the friend of order.
His success in restoring order in the
capital may bo said to havo made Napo
leon famous. Ho had already become an
adviser of tho Committee of Public
Safety. Indeed ho held that relation bo
fore his namowas stricken from tbe list
of generals in active service. Eleven
days after tho suppression of tho Sec
tions, ho was liiacio prorUioiuilly Gen
eral of Division, and four days after
wards the "provisionally" was struck
out, and he was appointed commander
of tho Army of the Interior, having as
its central Cold of operations Paris it
self. Destiny reserved for tho winter of
1705-06 another capital fact in the life
of her devotee. Kapoleon found Jose
phine. He first met her at tho house of
Barms. She belonged to the Soeiero des
Victimcs "Society of tho Victims."
To enter this band of tho new elite
Parisiennos, ono must have lost recently
a near relative by the guillotine! Jose
phine had lost ouc! her husband. The
Vicomto Alexandre de Beauharnais had
married Marie Josephe Rose Tascher,
tho beautiful Creole of Martinique, in
December of 1 773. She was then in her
seventeenth year. In 1780 the Vicomte
camo to America with Rocbambean.
Afterwards be was a deputy in the
Stats-General, and was twice president
of the National Convention. He com
manded, tinder Custine, at Mentz, in
1 703, when that place was surrendered
to the Germans. To surrender was
death. Ho was haled to trial, con
demned and guillotined only five days
before the col lapse of the Terror. When
Robespierre fell, tbe Societe des Vic
timcs was formed. Tbe light creatures
took wing like butterflies from the
blood-pools of the Place da la Revolu
tion. They still wore crepo on their
