Plus tard, M. Il se recueillait. Pour M. A ce moment, M. Septembre Near Cluny, another band lost a hundred men, and were captured. The Assembly was frightened by this insurrection in the countryside, where more than eight out of ten of the population lived. Its first reaction was a call for repression. Taxes and seigniorial dues are all destroyed, the laws without force, the magistrates without authority; justice is now no more than a phantom that is uselessly sought in the courts.
But the enlightened fraction of the nobility realized that the moment had come to make concessions. The feudal system was thereby divided in two: that bearing on individuals would be suppressed, and that bearing on properties would be redeemable.
Equity prohibits demanding that any property be relinquished without granting a fair indemnity to its owner. Bring us these titles that outrage humanity itself, requiring men to be tethered to a plough like draft animals. Bring us these titles that oblige men to spend nights beating ponds to prevent the frogs from troubling the sleep of their pleasure-loving lords. Which of us, gentlemen, in this century of enlightenment, would not make an expiatory bonfire of these wretched parchments? The idea of redemption reassured the deputies.
All the privileges of the orders would be abolished: the franchises of provinces and towns, seigniorial rights — hunting, garenne, colombier , 35 seigniorial justice, etc. The clergy would renounce the tithe, the bourgeois the purchase of offices. This grandiose abjuration took the whole night. These sacrifices were clearly intended to restore order in the provinces. The truth is that the faction of aristocrats has always dominated the National Assembly, and the deputies of the people have always blindly followed the directions it has given them.
The peasants also rejoiced to see the disappearance of tithe and seigniorial burdens. Soon, however, they perceived that their demands had been ignored, since the final decrees stipulated the payment of rent until redemption was completed. The visits of bailiffs showed them that nothing had changed: they had to go on paying champarts, terrages, cens, lods , and even the feudalized tithes.
In many places, the peasants came together and collectively refused to pay taxes and dues. On 2 September, the king sent the archbishops and bishops of the kingdom a letter of distress:. You know the disturbances that are ravaging my kingdom. You know how in many provinces, brigands and disloyal people are rife, and that not content with abandoning themselves to every excess, they have succeeded in inflaming the minds of the inhabitants of the countryside … Exhort all my subjects accordingly to await in peace the success of these patriotic measures, dissuade and prevent them from disturbing their course with insurrections apt to discourage men of goodwill.
Let the people trust in my protection and my love; if the whole world abandon them, I shall watch over them. Concurrently, the Assembly had begun debating the Declaration of Rights and the Constitution.

The patriotic party divided for the first time on the very principle of such a declaration, with the Moderates deeming it pointless and dangerous. The Declaration itself — voted on 26 August — was the preamble to the Constitution, on which debate was far more impassioned.
There were two crucial points at issue: should there be one chamber or two, and should the king be granted the right of veto? The rapporteurs of the constitution committee, Mounier and Lally-Tollendal, advocated a system on the English model: two chambers, one elected by the people and the other hereditary, like the House of Lords.
Mathiez, Albert 1874-1932
They proposed giving the king an absolute right of veto over the decisions of the two chambers. Under their influence the king refused to sign the decrees adopted by the Assembly after 4 August, and published a message that criticized these point by point. Barnave had been in negotiations with Necker: the Assembly would grant the king a suspending veto for two legislatures i. The king declined, but decided to concentrate troops once again around Versailles, including the Flanders regiment that would soon become notorious. The Declaration of Rights was not written in the silence of a study or the seclusion of an office.
This is why the Declaration was incomplete, its seventeen articles omitting such important points as the right to education, the right of petition, the right of association … It was drafted at a troubled moment when the link between the Moderates and the advanced party in the Assembly was not yet broken, which explains the caution and contradictions of a text which has to be read as a snapshot, the reflection of a moment, and not as a coherent whole to be engraved in stone.
It was agreed, in any case, that it would be reviewed and completed once the Constitution was finalized. Florence Gauthier has shown that there is a contradiction in the Declaration between the natural right to liberty and the natural right to property. While the right to property is seen as natural and hence inalienable, the production and distribution of the most important means of subsistence especially grain are entrusted to those whose aim is to enrich themselves, with no possible control.
From this point, the liberty of the poor becomes an empty word, as they can no longer secure their own existence. These sentences that sound self-evident today — even if their true consequences are not always drawn out — were the death-knell of the old order, and they set out the programme of the Revolution.
This question has divided historians quite passionately. But at bottom it represented the political advent of the bourgeois class. Besides the fact that Marx wrote nothing that might relate to such a schema — notes on the French Revolution are few and far between in his work, and sometimes contradictory — this reading is highly debatable, for at least three reasons.
On this point, we can agree with Tocqueville and Furet: the night of 4 August simply swept away the debris of an already moribund feudalism. The third reason is semantic, but not merely. The bourgeoisie did not exist as a class. There were certainly rich and poor, haves and have-nots, but this does not amount to a bourgeoisie and a proletariat.
Was the Revolution bourgeois or not? That is a question I refuse to ask, as it basically has no meaning. Buchez and P.

Henceforth abbreviated to A. Many of them came from Paris and had ties to the population. Mostly it moved westwards. On the 22 nd , it began to move towards the Sarthe: it appeared in Mamers and Ballon about nine in the evening and at some time later in the day in Le Mans. The right to keep a dovecote colombier had been likewise restricted to the nobility, whose pigeons were also entitled to feed with impunity on peasant crops.
The cens was a form of feudal rent, and lods was charged on transfer or inheritance of land. Now, if you have both the principle and the exception, where is the law? If you do not indicate any restrictions, why present men in all their plenitude with rights that they can only exert within just limits? It is true that the word appears here and there, but not with the meaning it has today.
It certainly features in the Histoire parlementaire of Buchez and Roux, but in their own commentary — written in the s — rather than in the contemporary reports they published. The opening of the Estates-General The Estates-General initially followed the model of , which clearly established the Third Estate in its place, the lowest one. The dismissal of Necker; preparations for insurrection After the union of the three orders, the pace of events quickened.
The municipal revolution In three or four days, news of the capture of the Bastille spread across the country and gave a lively impulse to the movements that had been bubbling almost everywhere for several weeks with greater or lesser vigour. The Great Fear Throughout this period, the countryside was in the grip of the Great Fear — which had actually begun at the beginning of July. The night of 4 August The Assembly was frightened by this insurrection in the countryside, where more than eight out of ten of the population lived. On 2 September, the king sent the archbishops and bishops of the kingdom a letter of distress: You know the disturbances that are ravaging my kingdom.
