The Rcpoiter of the Comnvffion of Eleven pre
sented a new edition of the four firft aiticles of the
loth title of the Conftituhonal Aft, relative to
the public contributions. One of the amendments
piopofed was, that the conjribution, which ftiould
entitle every inhabitant to \t clafled among thcci
tizens, (hould not exceed tie amount of three day*
labor in order.
Dubois Cranee wiflied to reduce the contribution
to the price of one day'* labor, ia order that the
poured may be claffcdas citiiens.
Gnilhimard supported the proposition.
Lanjuinais wa« in favor of the mode proposed by
he Commission.
Dubois Crance obje&ed that there might one day
be found a mass of men who in order to concentrate
in themselves all the rights of citizeM, would them
selves support the exigencies of the (late.
Dannou and Lateveillere Lsfaux spoke in favor
of the mode proposed by the Commission.
The Contention decreed the four article! in the
following terms :
1. Public contributions are difeuffed and fixed
each year by the' JLegillative body. Tfyey cannot
fubfilt beyond that period if they are not exptefsly
2. The Legislative body may create filch kind of
contribution as it (hall deem neceflary j but it must
each year eltablifh a land tax, and a general contri
3. Every citizen who, not being in the fixati
on provided for by the fifth and sixth articles of the
2d Title of the Constitution, has not been compri
sed in the lift of direct contributions, has a right to
present himfelf before th« Municipal Administra
tion of his Commune, in order that his name may
be inferibed for the payment of a personal contribu
tion equal to the local value of three days of agricul
tural labor.
4. The infeription mentioned in the preceding
article can only oc made in the month of Mcffidor
each year.
The Convention palled now to the difcuilioa of
he 3J Title. '
The firft article, dating that ever)' person if a ci
tizen at twenty one years of age, was read.
Villelaril moved to extend that period to twenty
five year<>.

Dan*au, o» the principle that palriotifm jvas most
ardent and pure in you-.g minds, and that in many
free ftatcs persons cf the age were admit
ted to the right of voting.
The motion w; sr j.cied and the following arti
cles were decreed :
I. Every man born and resident in France, who
has attained.the ageofii, is inferibed upon the
civic register of his canton, has lived for one year
upon the territory of the Republic, and pays a di
redl contribution, is a French citizen.
i. Frenchmen, who (hall have made one or more
campaigns in the cause of Liberty, are citizens
without any condition of contribution.

" The emigrant!, and the company of Jesus, had
united for the purpose of disturbing the tranquility
of Lyons. Your salutary decree came to the af of that commune, and tranquility was re-e
Your intention is to punish the emigrant! where

and if any doubt is entertained of it, that doubt'

rcll Lyons of the ci-devant Marquis de Lacofte.
That intriguer, born at Conftans, has been brought
to Pan's, by order of the representatives of the peo
ple at Lyons. To obtain his liberty he presented
a certificate, figntd by nine witnefles, and delmrcd
Sf^Vt#+S- .pi-X
by the sr.unlcipaiiiy of Lyons, dating, that lie had
lefided in that commune from the year 178$.
" This certificate appeared tha more fufpirfbus,

Lyons, where tiiey suborn witnefTes. The witucfscs
who signed the certificate of the Marquis de La
cottc have been examined ; part of them fay, that

that they were mitigated to it. A* the conflitut

ought to be tried by the tribunal of the department
of Paris. " The prisoner* at Lyon* have been
matfacred he said, " there was but one emigrant
there, and he was set at liberty."
Pierret opposed this motion on account of the
great quantity of buftnefs before the tribunal of Pa

Guyomard wiftied that the affair should be refer
red to the tribunal of Paris. He was apprchenfive
that the emigrant might be set at liberty in hit jour
ney, for thirty had lately been released in the de
partment of the moittht of the Rhone.
Bezard moved, that the witneffe* (hould be ttied
by the fame tribunal as the ci-devant Maiquis.
This was agreed to ; and it wai decreed, that La
code should be the tribunal of Paris.
Gonpilleau feared that there were in other places,
as well as Lyons, manafafturers of forged • certifi
cates of residence for the emigrants. He asked if
it would not be proper toeftablifh, in each depart
ment, a tribunal charged solely wi h the trial of
persona accused of emigration, whose number was
conGderable. Referred to tke committee of leg if
Breard proposed to suspend the erasure from the
lift of emigrants.
The proportion was put to the vote, and inflant
lf decreed.
Sereral members, among whom was LfjijenHre,
exclaimed againlt the precipitate mode of" palling

us when we have abandoned principles ; we have
returned to them, and miift not swerve from them.

At 11 o'clock the members were aflembled in
their robet. Dreflault pronounced a discourse on
the taking of the Baftile, which wai frequently
interrupted by applause. As the national institu
tion of music had not yet arrived, the convention
proceeded to other bufincfs.
Thibeaud, in the name of the committee of
finance, refuted a rumour that the plate!
livrcs had been ftolcn. He likewifc contradicted
the repart that the committee of public fafety
had, ai wa! pretended, augmented the appoint

the treasury would not pay them, ile also canfcd

Bordai, in the name of the committee offafety,
made a report on the mode of cancelling the office*
of ci-devant Savoy, in the department of Mi<nt
Blanc. The inhabitant* of that department, he
observed, hnd broken their chains, and fhewtt-them
frlves worthy of liberty. They had diclared them
felvcs Frenchmen ; and all the righ'.gof the Ficnih
were common to them.
Monnot made foene reflexions on the decree
which ordered the fchoo! of artilleiy, now at Be
fancon, to be removed to Rennet. Befidet the
weightier confideration6 which might m.ike this
measure dangerous in the present circlimftances, he
remarked that fey removing this eUablifliment from
the east to the weft, the republic wo«Id be depriv
ed of the services of the inhabitants of Franc-he
Comte, who will not travel 200 leagues to the
school of Rcnnes. This department would besides
create an expercc of several millions of livres, with
out being really uft ful, feeing that fcite of the fea
tide was less fitted for an exercise of this kind, than
that of the mountains bordering on Benfancon.
The reporter moved the suspension of the decree,
until after the report of the united committee, on
its advantages and ineonvenienccs. Decreed.
Jean de Brie. "At the moment when you are
engaged in giving a republican conttitution to

28 Meffidor, July 16.'
Vernier brought up a report, and presented \
plan of dccrees: I. On the territorial contribute
on, and on the neceflity of enforcing half of it ia
kind, and the reft in affignats, according to the
fcaleof proportion j 2. Oil the mean* of verifying
demands in surcharge and abatement ; 3. On the
ptopiiety of ebliging tenants to pay half their rent
in provisions to their landlords ; 4. On the necefi
fity of renewing the contribution of moveables, or
taxes on articles of ease and luxury; 5. Of re(lor<
ing patents for merchants only 5 6. Of cnadinjr
wife and severe police laws, tefpefting commerce,
and particular the corn trade.
The law* -relative to finance, (aid he, form s
chain, the links of which are closely conne&ed,
and mutually cQrrcfpondinjj ; unfortunately, all
those links have beeu broken ; it is then necessary
to give them a n<w connexion and a new order.
To begin the regeneration of our finances, three
things must iudifpenfibly take the lead, notwith.
Handing the due prefervatiou of the scale of pro
portion : r. We must reftere our ufuil revenues,
and our diredi contribution.: a. Find the meant
of procuring grain in such a manner, as may pre
vent the necessity of those rutfious purchases which
devour the public treasury, while jullice is done t»
the landholder*, whose rents are stipulated to be
paid in (pecie : 3. Bring iuienfibly, by the wifetk
regulations, proviftoni, and all articles of trade, t*
their real value in the scale of commerce.
In the difcufSou of Vernier's plans, some arti
cles were adopted refpefting the territorial contri
bution, the payment of rents,,and the mitigation
of frircharges. The firft article runs thus :
All requisitions in corn hitherto levied on land,
lords, farmers, and others, (hall be abolilhed, a»4
cease on the ill of Vendemiaire.
