JOLY, Henry Gustave, Canadian statesman, born in France, 5 December, 1829. He was educated at Paris, and was called to the bar of Lower Canada in March, 1855. He represented Lotbiniere in the Canada assembly from 1861 till the union, when he was elected b v acclamation for both the Dominion parliament and the Quebec legislature. He continued to sit in both houses until 1874, when he retired from parliament and confined himself entirely to the provincial legislature. He was reelected for Lotbiniere in the latter in 1875, 1878, and in 1881. He declined a senatorship in 1874 and again in 1877, and a portfolio in the Dominion cabinet as minister of agriculture in the latter year. On the dismissal of the De Boucherville cabinet by Lieutenant-Governor Letellier de St. Just, in March, 1878, Mr. Joly was called upon to form a new ministry, which he accomplished, assuming, as premier, the portfolio of public works. He resigned with his colleagues, 30 October, 1879, and was leader of the opposition from 1879 till 1883.
