In 1863 Uruguay had a population of 240,965 (census 1860); the capital, Montevideo, had 45,765 inhabitants. The country was torn by internal strife between the radical Colorados and the conservative Blancos, and presently (1865) had, with Argentina and Brazil, to face the aggression of Paraguay. Great Britain was Uruguay’s most important trade partner, followed by France : the two countries took more than half of Uruguay’s exports.
