"I compute that Dublin would take off annually about twenty thousand /carcasses/; and the rest of the kingdom (where probably they will be sold somewhat cheaper) the remaining eighty thousand."

Which of these is nearest in meaning to the word /carcasses/, as it is used in the passage above?

minerals
vegetables
corpses
foodstuffs

I want to say corpses, but I have a feeling it could also be foodstuffs.
