MOULAC, Vincent Marie (moo-lack), French mariner, born in Lorient, 12 March, 1780 ; died in Callao, Peru, 6 April, 1836. He entered the navy as midshipman in 1796, became lieutenant in 1802, and served in Santo Domingo, but resigned in 1803 to become a corsair. He re-entered the navy in 1808, became 1st lieutenant in 1812, and was sent to cruise in the West Indies from 1815 till 1822. He had occasion to protect the white population in Santo Domingo against the excited negroes, and in 1821 saved many citizens in Port au Prince, receiving them on board his vessel, and threatening to bombard the city. He became a commodore in 1828, and, after the usurpation of Don Miguel, forced the entrance of the harbor of Lisbon, which had been considered impregnable. In 1882 he was sent to command the station of the South sea, and during an insurrection in Peru he defended the European inhabitants against mobs in Callao and saved the lives and property of many citizens. For his services the foreign residents voted him a sword of honor. When he died of yellow fever in 1836, the Peruvian government ordered a magnificent funeral, and his remains were placed in the pantheon of Lima.
