Immediately upon the proclamation of the Provisional Oo- ▼emment of Sept. 4, 1870, the exile turned up aeain, and his subsequent history is legibly written in the records of revolution at Marseilles, Lyons, and Paris. For a short time he was at the head of the military operations of the Paris Ck>mmune, but, like nearly all the other agents of that body, he soon fell under sus- picion, and was arrested, though he was released from custody shortly before the entrance of the Versailles troops. It was reported that he was shot between Sept. 22—26, 1871; but, notwithstanding the vigi- lant search made for him by the police, he remained in concealment in Paris till the end of the month of December, 1871, when he escax>ed to London. Soon afterwards he went to the United States. The Third Council of War, sitting at Versailles, condemned him to death, par contumace, Aug. 30, 1872. Clu- seret and his publisher were on Jan. 27, 1881, sentenced by default to two years' imprisonment and 3000 f . fine for an article inciting soldiers to mutiny.
