MEXICO Alt THE raimivArts.
AT WA UI)T. THOMPSON ESQ,
(Late Minister of jhe United busts' at Mexico.)
We resume on extracts from this inter
esting publication, and shall begin by point ! .
ing out the wealth and influence of the
Church, which itl in fact the real govern
ment sh it
althou*xercises its authority indi
~4 . ,
Nevertinliess it is felt to the remotest
throb of Mexica4 feeling. Mr. Thompson
thus describes th City ,o f Mexico, its Pal
its Cathedial, and the wealth of the
The-city of 14xico is said to be the finest
built city on hie" American Continent. In
some respects it 4ertaiuly is so. lii the prin
cipal streets they iouses arc all c onstructed
according to 014 strictest ar chitectural rules.
The foundation of the city were laid, and
the first buildings were erected by Cortes,
who did everyt hing' ell which he attempt
-from buildp a house or writing a
. • ,g
an empire. Many of
couplet to c ontntering
thelfinest buildings in Mexico are still owned
by his deseenda9ts. The public square is
said to be unsurpassed by any in the world;
it contains somepvelve or fifteen acres paved
with stone. Tifp Cathedral covers one en
tire side, the Palace another; the western
side 'is occupiediby a row of very high and
substantial houses, the second stories ofwhich
project into theiareet the Width of the pave
ment; the lowe)- stories are occupied by the
principal retail )nerchants of the city. The
most of these h9uses were built by Cortes,
who, with his eharacteristic sagacity and an
avarice which tlqually characterized him in
the latter part Qf his life, selected the best
portion of the dity for himself. •
The President's Palace, formerly the pal
ace of the vice yrs, is an immense building
• of three storiew igh, about five hundred feet
in length, and three hundred and fifty wide ;
it stands on dia site of the
,palace of Monte
zuma. It is Omit to conceive of so much
stone and mortar being put together in a less
tasteful and imposing shape ; it has much
more the appe#rance of a cotton factory or
a penitentiaryi than what it really is; the
windows are small, and a parapet wall runs
the whole lenalh of the building, with melt
ing to relieve the-monotony of its appear
ance except ssne very indifferent ornamen
tal work in the centre; there are no' doors
in the front enter of the second or third sto
ries—nothingOiut disproportionately small
windows, andJoo many of them ; the three
doors, and t.hdre are only three in the lower
story, are destitute of all architectural beauty
or ornament. ii Only a very small parr of this
' . palace is appeopriated to the residence of the
President; ail the public offices are •here,
including tho 4 of the heads of the different
departments ;•,. ministers a war, foreign rela
tions financ4nd justice, the public treasu
ry, irc. &c. she halls of the house of dep-s
Mies and of the senate are also in the same
building, andast and least, the botanic gar
des. After pissing through all sorts of filth
and dirt on the basement story you come to
a dark narrois passage which conducts vou
to a' massive door ; which, when you have
succeeded in lipening, you enter an apart
ment enclosed with high walls on every side,
but open at,e top, and certainly not ex-.
ceeding eigh t
feet soysira..„ensl A l koi6 l i lt
few shrubs atid plants and the celebrated
manta tree, are all that it.contains. I have
rarely in my fife seen a more gloomy and
desolate looking place. It is. much more'
like a prison Elton a garden. A decrepit,
palsied old nilni, said to' be more than a
hundred yeais qld, is the superintendent of
of the establishment; no one could have
been selected more in keeping with the gen
eral dilapidation and dreariness of this mel
But the Chthedral, which occupies ,the
site of the glat idol temple of Montezuma,
offers a striking contrast. It is five hundred
feet long by tour hundred and twenty wide.
It would be enperfluous to add another to
the malty decriptions of this famous build
ing which have already been publislied.
Like all thedthei churches in Mexico, h is
built in the 4othic style. The walls, of sev- '
aral feet thickness, are made of unhewn
stone and lime. Upon entering it, one is
apt to recallthe wild fictions/of the Arabian
Nights; it sikms as if the wealth of empires
• was collecte4 there. The clergy in Mexi
co:do not, fq obvious reasons, desire that
. their wealth hould be made know') to its
full extent; they are; therefore; not disposed
to give veryZ information upon the , sub
ject, or to e . ' it the gold and silver vessels i •
vases, preciotis stones, and other forms of
wealth; quit 4 enough is exhibited to strike
the beholder :ivith wonder. tile first object
that presentsjitself on entering the cathedral
is the altar, near the centre of the building;
it is made oi•ighly-wrought and highly-pol
ished silver, and covered with a profusion of
ornaments of pure gold. On each side of
this altar ru a balustrade, enclosing a
space about ight feet wide and eighty or a
hundred feet long. The balusters are about
four feet high, and four inches thick in the
largest part 4.the handrail from six to eight
inches wide. t Upon the top of this handrail,
at the distane of six or eight feet apart, are
human im s, beautifully wrought; and
about two fe t high. All of these, the bat:
a t all
. ustrade, ban, , and images, are " made of
a compound Of gold and silver, and copper
—More valble than silver. I was told
that an am:- ad been made to. take this
balustrade, • d
replace it with another of
exactly the size and workmanship of
.pure silver, aild to give half a million ofdol

With the humility Whiah was the most stri
king feature in the character of the founder
of oar religion, w hose chosen instruments
were the lowly nnd humble, and who him
self regarded as the highest evidence of his
diviike m ission, the fact that " to the poor the
gospel was preached." Ido not doubt but
diem is enough. of the 'Precious metals in the
dilferent diuretics of Mexico to relieve sen-
sibly the presstire upon the currency of the
World, which has resulted from the dimin
ished production of the mines, and the in
creased• quantity which has been appropria
ted to purposes of luxury, and to pay the
cost . of Much - more tasteful dedorations in
architecture and statuary, made of mahoga
ny Mid marble.
But the immense wealth which is thus
collected in the churches, is not by any
means all, or even the larger portion, of the
wealth of the Mexican church .and Clergy.
They own very many of the finest houses in
Meiico and other cities (the rents of which
must be enormous), besides valuable real
estates all over the Republic. Almost every
person leaves a bequest in his will for mas
seifor his soul, which constitute an incum
b.rance upon the estate, and thus nearly all
the estates of the small proprietors are mort
gaged to the'clzurch. The property held by
the church irT mortmain is estimated, at fifty
Mexico is, I believe, the only country
where the church property remains in its
untouched entirety. Sonic small i 'amount
has been recently realized from the sale of
the gstates of the banished Jesuits; bilt, with
that exception, no President, however hard
pressed (and there is no day in the year that
they arc not, hard pressed), has ever dared
to encroach upon that which is regarded
consecrated property, with the exception of
Gomez Farrias, who, in 1534, proposed to
the legislative chambers to confiscate alt the
church property, and the measure would, no
doubt, have been adopted, but for a revolu
tion which overthreW the administration.
But it is impossible that such a state of
thingis can last always. I have heard intel
ligent men express the opinion, that one
thumb of the property of the country is in
the hands of the priesthood; an& instead of
diminishing, is continually increasing. As
dmeans , of raising money, I would not girt
the single institution of the Catholic religion
of masses and indulgences for the benefit Of
the souls of the dead, for the power of taxa
tion possessed by any government. No tat
gatherer is tequired to collect rt : its pay
ment is enforced by all the strongest and
!mist feelings of the human heart. All reli
gions and superstitions have their priesthood
and their priestcraft, from the reptile wor
ship-of the Nil to our own pure and holy
religion; but of all the artifices of cunning
and venality to extort money from credulous
weakness, there is none so potential as a
mass for the benefit of souls in purgatory.
Our own more. rational faith teaches that
When a mad dies his account is closed, and
his destiny for good er evil is fixed for ever,
and that he is to be judged by, the deeds
49Pe illlbtobffir ado modified or
changed by prayers at once posthumous,
viwious, and venal. It would seem to be
in direct contradiction to the Savior, in the
emnparisoh of the camel passing through
the eye of a needle.• Nothing is easier than
for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heav-•
en ; he purchases that entrance with money.
He who can pay for most masses, shortens
in proportion the period of his probation of
torment in purgatory. Who is it 'that will
not pay his last farthing to•relieve tilt! soul
Of a departed friend from those terments
I do not know how the fee for there masses
is exacted, but I do know that it is reonlar
' ly paid; and.that, without the fee, the mass
would be regarded of no value or efficacy.
We read in the bistory of the conquest of
Mexico, that Col Les paid large sums for
masses for the soul of Sandoval, when he
died, and provided large . sums in his will for
masses for his own soul. I remember that
my iyasherwomfm once asked me to lend
"tier two dollars. I asked her what she want
ed with it. She told me that there was a
Particular mass to be said on that day, which
relieved the souls in purgatory from tell
thousand years of torment, and that she
wished to secure the benefit, of it •for her
mother. I asked her if she was fool enough
to believe it. She .answered, " Why, yes,
sir ; is it not true 1" and with a countenance
of as much surprise as if 1 [tad denied that
the sun was shining. On a day of relizious
festival (the anniversary of Saint Francisco,)
I have seen, stack up on the door of the
church of San 'Francisco, one of the largest
and most magnificent in Mexico, a small
advertisement, of which the following was
." His Holiness the Pope (and certain
bishops which were named) have grante'd
thitty-two thousand three hundred veers, ten
days and six hours of indulgence fur this
- I do not remember exactly the number of
years, days and hours, but I positively as-
Hen that it specified the number of each,
and I - believe that' have stated them cur-.
Meetly. The manifest object of this minute
particularity is to secure the more effectual
belief in the imposture. By thus giving to
' .it the air of a business tranhaction, a sort of
Contract .between the devotee and the Al
mighty, ,by his authorized agent and vice
gerent on earth, the Pope, is established—a
contract the more binding in its character
- because the receipt of the consideration is
acknowledged. I tfetuble at the apparent
Blasphemy of even describing such things.
0 Mr. Brantz Mayer, in his very interesting
book, gives a literal copy of an adv e rti se _
'tient which was stuck up in the beautiful
eliurch or Guadeloupe on the festival of
rne'stra senora de Guadeloupe, of which
the folloViincr is a translation :-1--

Vitoluted prayers to our most exalted lady, for

mass qllich may be uttered by the priest or
the Wirers; as many more .days of indul
gence pie granted for every quarter of au
hour 14 which these images are exposed, in
the balconies, windows, or doors, for public
A distinguished friend of mine, who resi
ded sane time in Mexico, has still in his
possesSion some ennui's specimens of these
indulgences, varying, in the number of years
of ren(ission of punishment, according to the
prices, )aid : among others, one which grants
to a sZugle prayer all the good etnets of a
hundrid. These effects are all graduated
accoriiing to a regular scale, so many years
of rcatission for each prayer or mass, and
so invy years of putlishment for each sm.
1 remrmber, on one occasion, giving some
order to a servant on Sunday, when he told
we thnt he must go to mass ; that lie would
sufferiseven thousand years in purgatory for
everyimass which he neglected on Sunday,
or any day of religious festival. They have
a saint for all oecasiOns. There is 00
man ivant that there is not some particular
linc;of business" the matter belongs ; and
by piper devotions to him his powerful aid
is seciired. They have a saint for horses,
and t+ the festival of that saint, which is his
birth-day, horses arc carried to the priest,
and 4n- a stmt sum receive the blessing; a
perfelt security against " all the ills which
horseicsli is lwir to." In what is such a
