ce. The interior of the city does not correspond to its external appearance ; the streetsbeing, for the most part, narrow, dirty, and ill paved. Owing to the want of cleanliness, andof all sorts of precautions, on the part of the Turks, Smyrna is frequently visited by theplague. So late as 1814, from 50.000 to 60,000 of the inhabitants are said to have beencut off by this dreadful scourge. The trade of this city is more extensive than that of anyother in the Turkish empire. The caravans from Persia are chiefly composed of Armenians.They arrive and depart at fixed periods, which are nearly identical with those of the arrivaland departure of most of the foreign ships frequenting the port. Bargains are principallyeffected by Jew brokers, many of whom have amassed considerable fortunes. The principal articles of import consist of grain, furs, iron, butter, &c. from Odessa and Taganrog,and of cotton stufls and twist, silk and woollen goods, coffee, sugar, cochineal, and dye 528 SMYRNA.
