Ttere are but few of the towns in Mexico
that do not possess their Alameda,* and that
of Mexico is perhaps the most beautiful square
known. Paris is deficient in any`promenade
of the kind, while Hyde Park, in London, 4-
preaches the nearest to it.' The .ilionfedo,of
Mexico is a long quadrangle, enclosed by a
%4all abut breast high, along wlikvh Ulll3 a

respect it is irreproachable. ,A gate at each

and pedestrians. [On each side of the main

arise the most beantiful jets of water, aro di
vided by masses of myrtle, roses and jasmin,,

The Alarneda--The Paseo derilocareti.
is joined with grace and indole
bells of the Churches and the convents, the
chimes of the Awenlus • resounded above the
~,, 0
buzzing of the crowd. The day which is
casting its,lasCrays across 'the bars of the
Morgue, hut feebly reveals the victims who
are extended upon the bed of masonry stained
with large spots of blood. The soldiers in
vain attempt to repulse the, women who are
lamenting before the barriers, and giving vent
to their cries of grief. Their lamentations
attract a 'crowl—some of whom condole ii , ith
theta - , while mare contented with curimis
ly looking on. Kneeling near the grates of
the Morgue, his head' uncovered, and retain
ing in his hand the bridle of his richly capar
isoned horse, a man was reciting liii prayers.
From his costume it was easy to perceive that
he belouged to the wealthy class of the distant
provinces; Who .ject with disdain the ideas
and the faShiou cif Europe. He was of strong
1 • i
and masculine gore, and above his right eye
brow a
,la n g and delicate scar waS clearly and
distinctly , marked. It was deubtless the
handsome young cavalier, whose portrait Pe
rico had drawn for. me itrthe morning: Was
he rendering thanks to God fur havitig• pre
served him from danger, or was it for the hap
piness of loving and being loved? Tlielties
tion was still one of doubt with me, when the
devotion which gave rise to these conjectures
were suddenly interrupted: Frightened by
the noise of BORIC carriages, a horse rebelling
against the efforts of his rider, ran violently
against a ladder, at the; top of which was a so
reno, (watchman) engaged in lighting a.lanip
that was attached to the walls of the barracks
of L'acordadv. The. serene , fell from the
height of some five feet, and laid senseless on
the pavement. It would be easy for me to
describe the fadings of the unlucky cavalier
aithe sight of the sereno thus lying, and Per
haps mortally wounded,. for the cavalier I may
as well say, was no other than myself, - .but I
prefer to recount what. followed.
All know the • customary generosity of the
popplace of great cities, to those who through
ill-luck commit some unfortunate awkward
ness! Nevertheless they cannot form a cor
rect idea of that of Mexico; above all, when
face to face with -a stranger, who is to them
Only a natural enemy. Restrained, despite
his fright, in the ruidstof a mob of leperos
who were deliberating as to the nature of the
death they should inflict upon the author den
unparalleled crime, my ,horse was no resource
for me. I envied, fur a moment, the destiny
of the Serentf, insensible•at least to the reach
of this multitude, who pressed them under
their feet, without offering him the slightest
aid. Most happily, just tlfen, chance sent me
\ two auxilivies, upon one of which at least I
was far from counting. The first wits•an al
'mide who escorted by four soldiers, advanced
to me, and charged me with having before his
eyes, ca:ised the death of a Mexican citizen.
I silently bowed my assent to this. After
they had; by order of the magistrate, placed,
the body of the serene need a topestle-(a spe
cies of litter) kept in reserve in the barracks
for occasions of this' kind, the alcalde politely
,'invited' me to dismOunt from my horse, and di
rected me to fellow the litter on foot to the
palace, where I should find it most naturally
but two steps to a prison, r was Careful not
to be in a hurry to accede to this invitation,
and I endeavoi'ed to convince the alcalde that
in a case of this kind I coutd find mi l authority
for such a judicial procession. Unfortunately
the alcalde was like therm, of ,Ills kind, en
dowed with an obstinacy beyond reasoni , and
'to all, my arguments, he replied but to Insist
„the more strenuously. upon the respect due to
the custom. I thought then that I Would , seelt
among the by-standers Kittle one Who would
be willing, to become surety for my appear
ance, and quite, naturally 'my attention was
directed towards where I had seen the kneel
ing cavalier, and whoiat•first sight had inspi
red me with milt a profound interest, but he
had disappeared. Was 1 then to be forced to
submit to the odious formality exacted by the
alcaldel It, was at this Moment that chance
sent to me the secorld auxiliary, of 4116 m I
have spoken. The new'character who came
to interpose himself between me andt.he al
calde, was dressed in a cloak of the cloth of
Queretaro,:of olitte color, wrapped around him
in front,so as almost entirely to conceal his
figure, Through the numerous rents of the
cloak there could be perceived a•vest of not
less equivocal cloth. Approaching the alcal
de, aft4r having with a great deal of.eirort
freed his way through thd crowd, l he threw
dile arm under the tucks of hie cloak, and then
Without deranging the folds of his cape, raised

"Taking all together-rthe likeness of your

something over one' hundred dollars; and that

are worse ofi'.(l say it after abundant oppor
tunity to judge) than the. slaves of America;
morally and intelleCturilly, they are but - little
better; and socially they are Oiliest as bail.—;.
Their average earnings ao not exceed nine
shillings (sterling) per week. I see hundreds
of women hard at work in the fields, of :Scot
land just now, 'who earn bat A shilling a day,
to do which 'some of them have to crime a loiig
barefoot journey from the:llighlands. As for
their social condition, a British fume . ? would -
be as much shocked at the idea of sitting nt
meat with one of his laborers as' a Southern
planter 'with one of his slaves. Why? Be
cauSe -they are a ' et of boors.. One sees the
women here in S otland bonnetless, shoetesk
trudging tond om the fields; and wherein
they are above

England, and in Ireland worse. Their hous
