We now proceed to cholera, the last dread

disease, there is also much uncertainty and con
tradiction. Bontius supposes that it was
known to the Greeks. Sonnerat describes a
disease exactly like the cholera, '.which wTas
prevalent in 1774. The Medical Hindoo wri-

For some years subsequent to the fall of Na

the mind of the Politician lacked novelty where

ties of a lengthened warfare, eagerly sought
the enjoy ment of repose ; and for a time, it ap-peared-a&
though the sword had been changed
into tliiickle, and the soldier transformed in

France was the first to awaken from a peace

burst the bands of sleep; Belgium started from

Also stirring. . j -
Bywhat magic power have so many nations
arisen to mingle in the strife ofblooo; of what
did the spell consist that it could bring so many
'combatants into the field of arms? No uiighty
question was agitated between the monarchs of
the earth, by which those fell enchanters, pride
and jealousy, could charm their votaries to their
bidding : the great national councils of Europe
were undisturbed by the attempted settlement
of any important arrangement, and the crowned
head s were leagued together, apparently in good
faith, to preserve, the integrity of their territo
ries both individually and collectively. A Holy
Alliance existed !
Surrounded by ithe attributes of Imperial and
. Kingly power, fortified even by the prejudices
of mankind, with armies at their back, and na
vicsjat their will; llattered by all the pomp and
ircumstances of majesty, it might be supposed
fhat the'occupant of a throne was beyond the
reach of an enemy, and that the note of defiance
could not vibrate 'within the atmosphere of a
court. But, firm as a throne may be fixed, and
absolute as the authority of" tlie sitter thereon'
raay be, there is yet a power on earth, more
strongly based than that throne, and more migh
ty than the sceptered hand the People!
Behold the regular line of the Capitan Kings !
they are wanderers, and their palace of the
Puilcries occupied by one who is the choice of
-the People: See the roll of the ancient aristo
cracy of France ; it is even now folding up, and
he claims of birth arc forever silenced': the
nereditary4peerage will shortly become the
matter of History, as that which has past; whilst

W isely did the members of the Holy Alliance
provide for her government, and in the pleni
tude of their power, after their great foe wras
humbled, how easily did they transfer millions
of men, and a large portion: of territory from
one sovereign to another; and yet how rapidly
has a change been effected by the People; how
quickly have they elected their own monarch.

Rome was visited by a severe plague, which in jone. Of its remote cause we really know no-
all probability was introduced to the capitalhy
the army of Lucius Varius on his return from
Parthia. Galen notices the plague in his wri
tings. On the authority of Euscbius, we name
A. D. 302 as the period of the Syrian plague,
wrhich was so mortal during its prevalence. In
the year 540, during the reign of Justiana, a se
vere and extensive pestilence ranged over the
greater part of Europe &. Asia for halfa century.
The earliest authentic visitation in Britain of
this disease is that described in the year 430.
The last time it raged as an epidemic was in the
ever-memorable vears 1664-5. It fortunate
ly has not existed in Europe since 1679; and in
Edinburgh not subsequent to 1645; from which
thing ; it seems to give the lie to all our known
laws of contagion spreading in India in the
teeth of the most powerful monsoons. And
now Mr. Cornish's prediction is verified; it has
visited Europe. At Moscow, out of a popula
tion of 300,000, in forty-two days there were
4310 cases; out of that number only 674 cases
recovered, and 2340 died. At St. Petersburgh,
out of a population of 350,000, 7737 were at
tacked in the first thirty-two days, and 3927
died ; only 2282 recovered. It raged for some
time in Vienna, then again appeared at St. Pe

! rier to the spread of the contagion in Grea

throughout the continentof Europe. It reached,
Alleppo in 1660, remaining for three years: at
London it appeared in 1666. Golwald mentions
it having hrevailed at Dantzic in 1700. It
reached Provenfe in 1720, and in 1771 Moscow
was infected from communication with the
Trkish army. Smyrna was nearly devastated
in 1784, and Grand Cairo in 1798. The plague
broke out in .the Indian army during the Egyp
tian expedition in 1801. 1 he British camp was
attacked with plague while in Egypt. Of those
seized of the French army under Napoleon at the
battle of the Pyramids, only one in five recov
ered, whereas 301 only died of the English army
during the two years a fact which shows -the
superiority of British practice. The plague
now reached, 1815, the "little rock of Malta,"
Nova in 1815, and.Smyrna in 1784.
The mortality was dreadful. At Moscow
1200 are reported to have fallen victions in
twelve hours. In Athens and London the dead
were too numerous for interment.
Evelyn, in his Kalendarium, under date of
September 7, says "Near 10,000 now die
weekly ; however I wrent all along the city and
suburbs from Kent street to St. James's, a dis
mal -passage and dangerous to see so many
coffins exposed in the streets thin of people,
shops shut up, andfall in mournful silence, as
not knowing whose turn it might be next."
At Grand Cairo the annual mortality averaged
7000. It would seem an established fact, that
this malady cannot engender an active mias ma,

mosphere be above 80 degrees of Farenheit, nor
The next national visitation is that of small
pox. We cannot tell when it appeared in the
world, neither can we affirm that it was known
to the Greeks or Romans. Certain we arc that
it was observed in Asia and China for an in
calculable period before its appearance in
Britain. We can trace its course from China to
India thence to Arabia Felix, and the triumph
too fully attest the utter insufficiency of sanato
ry cordons in checking this dreadful pestilence
