f ( V S. Stkamee San Jaci&to,
" ' Hong Kong, Aug. 8th, 1856. , f
:;iHIrS Editor: Among the interesting
i objects which attract the attention of the
stranger in Siam, the most prominent are
.the Watt, or temples, and the Pagodas.
i" The Buddhist is the prevailing and na
t tional religion.' The present King, altho'
convinced cf the absurdities connected with
; the tysters, not only in a religious point of
-View, but kihO in a philosophical, cannot,
from his .position, abjure Buddhism. He
maybe styled an infidel BuddhisL-
r The erection of a Wat is considered the
i most praiseworthy act which a Siamese can
-perform, and as most surely securing to
him salvation. The Pagodas are built on
the grounds attached to the temples, and
"are many of them - works of imposing
grandeur. The base is generally octagonal,
' surmounted by a gracefully tapering spire,
' rising to it great height, by steps cut in the
side. They are built of bricks covered
' with glased tiles, of different colors. The
'bases are ornamented with figures, formed
"of small pieces of the same, cemented together.-
'Each King erects one during his reign.
In the grounds connected with the temples,
,and wbich often are of large extent, are
built houses for the priests, and contain va
rious stone figures, both of men and ani
mals, many of the most grotesque appear
ance. : These are evidently of Chinese man
ufacture. . -!, . , ' . . ; . .
The doors of entrance to the temples are
most beautifully inlaid and ornamented
"with" mother-of-penrL ' The credit of this
work' I am also inclined to give to the Chi
xese' workmen.' The Wat Pho, which I
" visited, is the most interesting in Barykok.
Jt contains an immense reclining figure of
iJuddba, one hundred and thirty-hve feet in
length. The idol is constructed on a solid
foundation raised about four feet from the
floor of the temple, and is reclining on his
Tight arm. It is all overlaid with gold;
1,he soles of his feet are ornamented with
fnlfaid mother-of-pearl work; and the im
pression produced on the mind by this gi
gantic .figure is one of admiration for the
-grandeur, rastness and magnificence of the
-design, and the manner in which it has
'been carried into execution; but one of
pity that so much time, labor and money
Jias been so uselessly thrown away.
In the outer building of this temple, are
Beveral hundred Tnij- figures, all gilded,
Attached to I' are six hundred priests.-
These priests attend to the religious cere
monies, and conduct the education of those
intended for the priesthood. ' The people
seldom visit the temples to perform devo
tion; indeed the greater part of this is done
ty the priests alone. They all wear yel
low robes; this is the sacred color.
One temple I visited was built in the
form of a Chinese junk. Another had at
tached to it altars, on which are burned
the bodies of the dead. These burnings are
conducted with religious ceremonies by the
. The poor are thrown into a large
"and there form food for vultures and
1 happened to be in this Wat one
day when the body of a poor man was
pitched in. The vultures for whose ac
commodation large racks have been erected
in the yard, made an impetuous attack, en
masse, and soon wero fighting like tigers
over the body of the the man. They were
shortly joined by some vDianous dogs, who
also finid accommodation here, and the work
of fearing and devouring the corpse went
on with astonishing rapidity. The rapaci
ty and voraciousness of these disgusting
birds is extraordinary. We soon turned
from the sickening scene. The bones of
these persons are afterwards burned by the
priests, who are paid a certain sum yearly j
by the King. Soch are the scenes which '
almost daily come nnder the observation in
Siam heathen, and unenlightened by that
great luminary which has shone upon the
path of more favored nations.
- In Siam the gradations of rank are very
numerous, and the utmost Btrictness is ob
served on all occasions in navinc those out-
ward marks of respect which indicate the
-presence of one of superior social or polit
ical position. This is certainly strange to
the eye of an American, as from the King
down to the lowest man in the country.
and at all times, under your hourly obser
vation, this doing reverence is always going
on. . , , , - .
When any man of superior rank ap
proaches, the inferior h obliged to go down
on his knees until he has passed ; and when
the Kiner desires to go out m his boat, all
other boats must move to the opposite side
of the river, and there await until he bas
departed.;! I: J.: ..
The' weorfe re generally very poor,
and live in bamboo houses. . They may be
nir in institute a nation of slaves. Ev
ery nun is at the King's disposal; and is
obliged yearly to jgire th government so
much of bis time, or pay ft certain ransom.
The consequence is that the people have
made little or no advancement id arts or
science. Tbey;bva absolutely nothing, so
far td uW observe,, which ihev ;fjj
Siamese; that is in connection wHn science
art. The tools of all discriptiona, their
cleaning machines, for preparing their
chief sustenance, everything bat what na
ture has provided for them, is Chinese.
Mach of this may be laid to the climate;
much to want or inducement for improve
ments in ft word to oppressive slavery,
which under all circumstances must and
produce the same effects deteriora
and degradation. '
During the middle portions of the day,
wmcn is intensely hot, they sleep; the
morning and evening is apropnated to
whatever business may need attention. In
a Siamese sleeps about three-fourths
his time. The rest he occupies in chew
betel, or drinking tea, while his wife

the Siamese is the Senna, or Palai,
whieb encircles the waist. The hair is
shaved from the head, with tho exception
a small portion on top, in front, which
allowed to grow - to the length of three
four inches. Ihe beard is thin and
scanty, being seldom visible. They often
ine women areas in the same style as
men ; the younger also wear a pahome,
extending from one shoulder across the
chest in front, under the arm-pit on the op
posite side, covering the breast. The hair

of their lords; tbey chew betel con

The currency of Siam is silver. It con
of Ticals "or Baats, Selungs and Fi
ine Uaat is worth sixty cents, and
Selung fifteen cents, the Finings about
cents. The Curie is nko used where
valuations are wanted. These
are made from small bars, which are
into pieces of the required size, and the
of each 'piece are made to approximate
hammering. They are then stamped.
The principal products of Siam are su
gar, rice, cocoa nut oil, ivory and skins.
ivory is of fine quality, and highly
valued in China for working up into chess
At Bankok are located several American
missionaries,bolh Baptist and Presbyterian.
There are, also, French and Portugues
The Americans are worthy men, but
can produce little or no effect on the
population. Their efforts are princi
pally directed to the youth. It must be
long time before much real change can
produced on the Siamese.
At the request of the Prime Minister,
Commodore has taken two boys, one
them of high rank, to sea in the ship,

information they can. These boys are
favorites, and are learning quickly.
Before our departure, the King had ar
ranged a grand theatrical performance, to
which we v. ere invited. The royal boats
conveyed us to the palace. The hall in
which the performances were to take place,
large, and the stage backed with ap
propriate scenery. The king and we were
placed on a large platform on cne side
we had chairs directly in front.
The royal musicians and singing girls
occupied places directly opposite the plat
form, and kept up what to us was a very
dissonant chorus. The principal portion of
entertainment consisted in dancing, bv
troupe of girles, about fifteen in number.
girls were all painted a dirty yellow
and wore dresses of the richest gold
Drocaae. Ihey also wore silver taper
ing finger coverings, which were very long
bent backward, in imitation of the long
so much admired in the East. Their
movements were "principally of the arms

The Siamese are passionately fond of
entertainments; and wUl sit and

sufficient to gratify our curiosity; and
refreshments, tea, wine and aegars

When I take the history of one poor heart

pa.tsed, the brief pulsation of joy, the
feverish inquietude of hope and fear, the
of regret, the feebleness of purpose,
