riio following iiilarcsting fuels nro (raus-
nted from Princess Salm-y.il m's "Recollec
tions of Mexico :"
Although tho Mexican, nro a lazy people,
they riso early tho gentlemen to tako their
morning ride, tlio ladies to go to early mass,
which l, tlio only occasion on which tlioy
appear in tho streets on fout. They tako u
uncheon between tvvelvo anil ono o'clock.
i'lio Mexicans aro a very temporato iieoplo;
they drink little brandy, wino or beer, but
on every tablo you find pulque, a light,
vinous beverago resembling cider, obtained
from tho American agave. As a general
thing they lead very regular, exemplary
Uvea, hut gambling is their passion.
I ho men aro usually small, dclicatoly but
symmetrically made, and havo very small
landj nnd feet. They nro very pollto nnd
graceful, reserved and cautious, as though
they were always on their guard against de
ception nnd for a very good reason, siuco
trustworthiness Is far from beintr n lead
lug virtue among them, Tlicy nro ready to
proiuiso Willi words; nro. always nt your
service, lint they nro not to bo trusted, Ell-
ty years of civil btrifo would bo suluclent to
uemorallzo better peoplo than tho decend
ants of Corlcz ami his followers. Thoy lovo
money, but havo littlo Idea how it is to bo
honestly obtained; hence, it is looked upon
rather ns being meritoriom than sinful to
steal from tho Government, bo that Govern
mentwhiit It may. Whoever gets into of
fice uses bis position for this purpose.
In general they nro very hospitablo and at
dinner thero nro always two or threo covers
laid fur guesls who may chaneo to como In
1'iugal as they usually are, when they en
torlaln they provide very bountifully.
mo women oi mo better class aro very
hnndsome, mid nro especially remarkable for
their abundant heads of black hair, their
huge, dark, inebiiieholly eyes and tlielr small
(lelicalely formed extremities. They marry
young, often at tho ago of fouileeiinr fifteen
and usually have huge families; it is mil
unusual to see a woman with a doicu chit
dren, and homclimcH with even more. Tho
children aro very frail, very milct and well
behaved, I havo never seen them romp iuk
quarrel, ui I havo always seen hearty, stron(
children do in oilier countries, Tho moth
era usually liurso their children themselves,
nro very fond nnd devoted, and bring them
up very Irrationally. They treat them liko
dolls, and their chief study Is to dross thorn
prettily. Tlio children aro very precocious ;
up to thclr tenth or twelfth year thoy pro
gress with wonderful rapidity, but then their
Intellectual development becomes very slow
or entirely ceases.
Family life in Moxlco Is qui to pleasant;
tho husband and wlfo aro always seen to
gether, and they livo mostly nt home, sur
rounded by tlielr relations. Parents ecpa
rato themselves from their daughters willing
ly, nnd not unfreqiicntly thoy marry thcmlo
men who nro content to mnko tho houso of
their father-in-law their homo and to livo nt
Tho ladles uro exceedingly ignorant.
They rcsd nothing but their prayer books
and nro hardly able to write tlio mo,t com
mnnplueo loiter. They know no language
but Hjianisli, and of history nnd geography
they nro entirely ignorant. Thoy knew be
fore they wcro evaded by tho French that
Paris is tho capital of Franco, and of London
they had nlso heard, sinco from both
of theso cities thoy havo always re
ceived their finery nnd many object of
luxury. All they know about Romo is that
tho Popo has his residence there, and but
for that circuinstanco lliey would not know
there is such a city. Thoy, howovcr, havo a
good deal of taste for music and many of
them sing and play very credibly.
In many Mexican houses thoy have, as a
rule, no regular dinner. If they aro hungry
thoy eat some simple dish or drink a cup of
chocolate, which is excellent ; tho cotl'ee,
however, although they raise a good quality,
is not good. They do not know how to pre
At six o'clock they drivo out and from tho
promenado they go to tho opera or theatre,
taking their daughters, dressed in their fin
est with thorn. If perehanco thero is no
placo of nmuscmcut to whico thoy can go,
then they remain nt homo nnd amuse them
selves with card, and music. Tlio young
people assemblo very frequently for a hop or
a krtuliix, as Mich gatherings aro called in
Although thero nro lu Mexico among tho
8,000,000 inhabitnns about half a million
negroes very few in the cities tho house
servant., uro Indians, mostly young girls,
who aro generally treated in a very friendly
and familiar manner by their employers.
They are well skilled in household allairs,
ami many of them embroider beautifully.
Moro than half tho population of tho
country aro Indians; tlioso who livo on the
plateau of Mexico, and in tho vicinity aro
decendants of tho Aztecs, who, 000 years
ago, astonished tlio Spaninrd-nvith their civi
lization, which somo say surpassed that of
the ancient Egyptians. Tho conquerors,
who expected to meet with savages only,
found iu tho Aztec capital a nourishing city
containing many fiuo buildings adorned with
numeroin works of art. What has becomo
of this intelligent, industrious people? Tho
milliner in which tlio English treated the
Vmerieau Indians, bad ns it was, had somo
excuso in tho obstinacy with which they re
sisted every attempt to civilize them ; but tho
Aztecs vrcro very far from being savages.
Maltreated as tho poor natives were, they
took rcfugo iu tlio forests, whero thoy wcro
leprived of every means of culture. Their
children grew up in ignorance nnd, in course
of time, they even lost mechanical skill.
No wonder they nro shy and distrustful.
When they aro well treated they evince great
goodness of heart, aro faithful and evince a
Irong desiro to learn.
When tlio conqiicrorsspreadover tho coun
try tho aborigines could not keep entirely
ivvay from them, ospcciallyinthocities. Of
this contact thero camo among them a now sort
of civilization. Theysoon learned tho valuo
of money, and that it could bo obtained by
sellingthcirscrvieestothcir lazy masters. Tho
consequence is that wo see them every whero
llio petty tradesmen and laborers of tho coun
try. They wcro almost exclusively tho pro
viders for tho capital they camo from every
direction witli their poultry,frtiits, vegetable-!,
wood, charcoal, etc., etc.
The women work moro than tho men, and,
togcathcr with a heavy load, carrying their
baliies on their backs, they can bo seen on
every road leading to tlio city, going on n
dog-trot to market. Their dress is very sim
ple. A piecoof bluo cotton stun" is wound
round tho waist and falls to tho ankles, whilo
tho shoulders and breast nro covered by.
another pieco of cotton of a difierent color
in which thero is a hole to put thohead through
I havo seen tlio peasants in tho Tyrol wear
pieces of carpet in n similar manner.
Tho dress of tho nion is still loss complete,
Around tho waist thoy wear a piece of leath
er in such a maimer that it forms a sort of
short breeches. Their shoulders they cover
in tho tamo way tlio women cover theirs, and
on their heads they wear a palm-loaf bat.
Tho Aztec women havo large, handsome
eyes, are generally well formed, and many
of them aro nulla good looking; but tho
women of tho other Mexican tribes are, for
tho most part, ugly.
Not a few of tho companions of Cortez
married Aztec girls, and from theso unions,
which became more and moro frequent, thero
sprang a mongrel raco called Creoles. Many
of theso aro ranchcrot, planters or farmers,
and aro looked upon as forming tlio best por
tion of tho nation, Somo of them nro very
rich ; nnd, as they havo littlo opportunity to
get rid of their money except by gambling,
they gratify their passions for costly apparel
