The Black Death.
The Black Death, like many other
plagues of its class, can be traced far
back into the remote East; and there
is no doubt but that it is the same dis?
ease which ravaged China and Tar?
tary in 1333. fifteen years before it
arrived on the shores of Europe.
^There had been a great famine in
China, preceded by floods and earth?
quakes, which alone destroyed 100,000
persons, and in the following year no
fewer than 5.000,000 died there qf thia
plague. From the remote East it
made its way into Europe some years
later, for pestilence often travels flow- j
ly, accompanying the migrations of |
men, und being carried about in thejr
clothing and merchandize. It did not I
arrive in Europe until 1347, fifteen j
years after its outbreak in China, j
"From China," says Hecker, "the j
routes of the caravana lay to the North j
of the Caspian Sea, through Central ;
Asia, to Tauri?. Here ships were ;
ready to take the produce t>f the East !
to Constantinople, the capital of com- !
merce and the medium of communica- |
tion between Asia, Europe and Africa. "
Contagion made its way along those
channels, and Constantinople and the
seaports of Asia Minor were the foci
whence the disease was rcarried to
every country of E trope. Making its
way across the European continent, it
committed its gr ea tost ravages-save,
perhaps, in England-in Italy; raging
terribly at Florence, where it was ob?
served and'described by the poet Boc?
caccio. Passing along the shores of
the Mediterran run, it invaded France
by way of Avignon, spreading thence
to" England on the ono hand, and to
Germany on the other; whence, like
the cholera of the present day. it
doubled back, two years later, to Rus?
sia, and so back to the East.
The Black Death, so called from the
rapid putrefaction of the bodies of its
victims, was of the^ame nature as the
Oriental plague- viz: a putrid typhus,
oniy a greater malignity. The boils
and buboes of the latter disease wen??
found in the former whenever the pa?
tient lived long enough to permit their
development. The inhabitants of Eu?
rope at that time have been computed
at 100,000,000-a high estimate. Of
these 25,000,QOO, or one-fourth of the
whole, perished ! In England it was
still niuro fatal, owing, probably, to
. the ruder habits of the people. Dur?
ing the term of one year-viz: from
.August, 1318, to August, t04S>, three
fourths of the whole population per?
ished ! Indeed, if wo are to credit
the analista of the period, not more
than one-tenth escaped J Many mw
eui)il*fcd in a few hours, like Senna?
cherib's; host; none endured for three
days. In France numbers died on the
spot where they were first smitten, as
if struck by lightning. This terrible
.scourge, having swept over the then
known world, committing such de?
struction "f Ufe, and leaving behind it
such misery and poverty as the world
never saw before or since, at length
died out; never again, w?tntst, to re?
visit the eartli. It spared neither age,
sex, nor condition; the rich and the
poor alike succumbed. Thete died in
Venice, the aristocratic;, no less than
100,000 persons; in Florence, the
refined, GO,000; in Paris, the gay,
50,000; and in London, the wealthy,
100,000; while in the busy, rich, in?
dustrious Norwich, there died the al?
most incredible number of 50,000 per
-O:H-nearly the whole, one would
suppose, of ita inhabitants ! At Avig
non Che deaths occurred with such
frightful rapidity as wholly to bailie
the attempts of the living to inter
their friends and relative-) ; and the
Pope was obliged to consecrate the
Bhone to allow of the dead bodies
finding ^hallowed resting place upon
its bosom, uutil if finally committed
them to the great deep.
