I have eaen in tle.churchm of San Augus
mmin, ne or atio bliiidid people assembled
ait night, the chapel was darkened amd they.
took offiheir clothes and lacerated them
selesteirey with pie mof hard, twisted
cord, mad olikea catiTo'nine tails. It was
noet such a fl'ogginmg as Saucho gave himself
to disenchamnt Dulcineca, but a real bona
de nstigaion. Of this I have no dout,
fmr I picked up one of te disciplinas, tihe
tused, amnd it was wet and soaked
with blood. I stood at thme door ais the peni
tents came out, and recognized among
them some of tie most respectable people
in Mexico. No one in hissenses can doubt
the sincerity of those ho wvil voluntarily
inflict such tortro upon themselves.
There was an amusing incident connec
ted with this scene of self-castigation.
Some mischievous boys (for boys arc pret
ty much te same imn Mexico as every where
else) had contrived to get into the church,
aid for fear that the whipping wvould not
fo r I eedone, they commenced operations
thiemsefr.a They were discovered, per.
hamps, from 'thie.gr.e r severity of their
klowsithaa those whindh. th: meon wvere in

great commonion for a shmort ?dme. Thie
whiglasted for ton or fifteen miniies,
andthe od Iwas very much like the pat
tering of hail.-W. Thonipso's amexio.
I do not think that time clergy of Mlexico,
withi very fewv exceptions, are amen of as
much learnimng as time Catholic clergy gen-.
orally are ini other couuntries. Tme lower
orders of tihe priests amnd friars are gene.
rally uentirely umneducated, and~ I regret toa
aidd, as geperally licentious. Thmere' Is nmo
mnighmt ini the year that the most, revolting
spectacles of vice and immortality, on time
