ot sot-preservation. As was to be expected,
the fugitives, carrying with them the fatal germ,
infected the country, which became the theatre of
tne moat horrible scenes. c '
The beasts, abandoned in the city, perished,
for want of food, and the decomposition of their
bodies, together with those of the human corpses
which remained unburied in the afreets', vitiated
the atmosphere to such an extent that any un-
lonunaie person Who might return to the city
ieu ueaa aimosi aa soon aa ne entered a house.
However, this new cmUrettmpt was stopped as
soon as possible by the energetic measures taken
by the worthy Military Governor, and by the
humanity of tho second alcade of the Corregidor,
various vour.a Bicn, many of humfeS vic-
tiroe to their heroism. ' - n
At last the supposition was confirmed that the
epidemic was not the cholera, but. the terrible
plague of the Moors, it having been ascertained
that it was introduced into the island of Grancf
Canary by thefishing vessels which frequent
uie western coasts oi jviriea. i ne persons in
the island devoted to, this traffic, numbering a
b'out 1,800, have almost all perished, as there re-
jmain only enough to man a single vessel. Ac
cording to the declarations of the misters of the
sail vessels, on all the western shores of Africa
there rcigna a deathly post which carries off the
inhabitants, . Uie mortality being so great that
corj ses are strewn tipon the earth in incredible
numbers, 'ir.d their decomposition augsicsis the
influence of the corrupted atmosphere. c
As soon as the Commandant General of the
Province lettrned of the "abandonment of the
city of Las Palmas, he sent a portion of the gar
rison of the capital to bury the dead," but the
greater portion of the soldiers were attacked by
me epiuemicana uiea. in short, in order to
give un idea of the ravages of the pest, it is on
ly necessary to state that in two months 6.000
persons died in the city Las Palmas, and 16,000
in Uie whole island. Un to" the last dates the
