It is Well known to All in any degree familiar with the history of Mexico that a regular system of Highway Rob Bery exists in every Section of that miserably governed country and that through a want of into Ferante of the authorities this has grown up into regal for and formidable shape that every traveler must be prepared to put his life at Hazard at every stage or to provided with a suitable contribution for lot Caballeros do Camino the knights of the who in the event of find ing Yon prepared and willing will make their Levy with it politeness only1 equated Fly the smiling landlord when he receives your Over charged fare for your last night s entertainment. Why such systematic boldness of robbery is not with the Connivance at least with rarely any interference of the government or state one of those mystical matters which among Many others so puzzles and prep Exea the intelligent foreigner hat that such is the disagreeable truth every traveler through that wretched country can Bear ample testimony. Some years ago having business which first called me to the capital of Mexico and thence through the Interi or of the country to the northward i met with several thrilling adventures which i have recorded for the Benefit of whomsoever May take an interest therein omit Ting Only the. Dates they being non Easo tial to the interest of the narrations themselves. The first of the series occurred on the route Between Vera Cruvand the City of Mexico. In the regular Diligence running Between the places just mentioned i had taken passage and had passed through the. Beautiful City of Jalapa and entered the gloomy town of Perote without meeting with any unusual incident though being continually warded to be on my guard against the dangers of the Road. At Perote where we halted for a relay and refresh ments All my fellow passengers took leave of me very solemnly assuring me that if assailed by the Ladrone or Rob Bers it would be much better forme to with a Sweet smile and a melodious tone except front the professional robbers and they Seldom harm any one who makes no resistance it Altange i rejoined that you Aronld things As a Natter of course and totem resistance a very impolite Way of treat ing the knights of the Road instead of boldly asserting your i rights and ing the evil by a Manly spirit of resist. Anoe. For myself i must consider it the most cowardly of proceedings for any respectable party to sat out prepared to quietly gratify the cupidity of the unprepared to treat them to their just every traveler she replied should before setting oat count the coat of journey and of course it is natural he should value his life highly it seems to me natural that he should pay a certain sum for the positive safety rather than put Bis life in jeopardy. For instance in travelling from Vera to Mexico if be will nest reckon that so much is the fare by the Diligencia and that so will be required Fot entertainment on the Way and so much for the contingency you speak of he flu then have the exact Cost Between two Points and if he will look at the whole As the total of Bis journey he will not seem to be robbed by any one party More than i replied stay be i be love is the mexican Niobe of doing business but does not tally with the of received ideas of foreigners. But every the fir speaker should conform to the Cus Toms of the Donn tar he " and do then go prepared for this Highway robbery Ana have Yon no in myself.
