MELINE, James Florant, author, born in Sackett's Harbor, New York, in 1811 ; died in Brooklyn, New York, 14 August, 1873. His father was a French officer in the United States army. The son was graduated at Mount St. Mary's college, Emmettsburg, Maryland ; and after teaching for some time in Cincinnati, Ohio, studied law, and was admitted to the bar. He afterward studied for three years in Europe, and held different United States consulships there. On his return he was for several years a banker in Cincinnati, was connected with the " Catholic Telegraph " in that city, and was French consul there a short time before the civil war. He served during the war, chiefly on the staff of General John Pope, first as major and judge-advocate and" afterward as colonel. After the war he was chief of the bureau of civil affairs in the 3d military district. Subsequently he was employed by the government in connection with the Freedmen's bureau in Georgia, and during that time was a correspondent of the New York "Tribune." His later years he devoted to literature. He was a regular contributor to the " Catholic World," in which his vindication of Mary, Queen of Scots, in answer to James Anthony Froude, first appeared. He also wrote for the '" Galaxy," and at the time of his death was completing a series of articles on Savonarola, three of which have been published. His principal works are "Two Thousand Miles on Horseback" (New York, 1867); "Commercial Travelling" (Cambridge, 1.869) ; "Mary, Queen of Scots, and her latest English Historian" (New York, 1871); and a " Life of Sixtus the Fifth" (1871).
