In the course of the great Taiping rebellion, which was only crushed in 1864, the exotic “Christians” routed the Manchu trash wherever they met it, took Nanking and all the cities along the Yangtze River, and created panic in Peking. Burning Buddhist and Taoist temples, and substituting Christ for Confucius as they went along, they could almost certainly have overrun the whole country had they made up their minds to do so. Six hundred cities and towns were destroyed in the course of their crusade, and an empire that had a population of 400 million in 1850 was down to 267 million by 1862, it is said.
