GRANIER DE CASSAGNAC, Paul db, son of Adolphe Granier de Cassagnac, born about 1810, be- came at an early age a contributor to the minor Parisian journals, and soon acquired notoriety by the fierceness of his personal attacks on his contemporaries and the numei'ous duels to which they gave rise. In 1866, under the auspices of his father, he joined the staff of Le Pays, of which soon afterwards he became the principal editor. Since then he has been perpetually embroiled in quarrels with his brother journalists and anti-Bona- partist politicians. It would be difficult to enumerate all the "af- fairs of honour" in which he has been engaged, but his duel with the late M. Gustave Flourens in 1869, may be mentioned as being one of the most desperate fought in recent times. M. Paul de Cassagnac was decorated with the Legion of Honour on the Emperor's fdte-day in 1868, and in July, 1869, was elected a member of the Conseil General for the Department of Gers. On the declaration of war against Prussia, in Aug., 1870, M. Paul de Cassagnac, who was still suffering from a recent wound in the chest, and who had just been appointed a Major of the Garde Mobile of the department of Gers, preferred to enrol himself as a volunteer in the first regiment of Zouaves. Taken prisoner at Sedan he was interned for eight months in a casemate at KSsel in Silesia. On recovering his liberty he went to Venice for the benefit of his health; and afterwards he established in the department of Gers, L'Appel au Peuple, a political journal which met with considerable success. Re- turning to Paris in Jan., 1872, he resumed the editorship of Le Pays. In July of that year he was con- demned to a week's imprisonment.
