proceeded,said C0I4 Ii-) to the Inqujlition;
which was situated about five miles from
the city. It w'as surrounded with ' ti wall
of great strength jatid defended by a com
pany of soltliers. iVVhen Woarrived Ktthe
walls, I adtiresscfi pile of thsentihelsj and
summoned I the h'olv fathers td surrender to
the imperial army1, and open;the gates of
the Inquisition. The sentinel stand
ing1 on the I wall, j appeared to entr into
conversation for almoment with some one
within, at he close of which he presented
his musket, and shot one of ; my men.
This was a!signalof attack, and T order
ed 'my troops to fire upon llhbse wlho ap-
pedred on he walls; . ; : H '
It was soon obvious that it was an unequal
warfare. The wails of ihe Inquisition tere co
vered wttlr the soldiers of Ihe holy office; ? there
was also a breast-work upon the wallehind
which they kept continually, only as they par
tially exposed themselves as they discharged
iheir muskets. Ourj troops were in tfeq open
plain and exposed to a destructive fire. We
had no cannon, nor could we scale thd walls,
and the gates successively resisted all aU'empTs
at forcing thern. I could not retire and send for
cannon to break through: the walls, Without
giving thenatjime to lay a train for blowing us up.
I saw that it' was necessary to change the? mode
of attack, and directed some? trees to be cut down
and trimmed, to be used at battering rams.
Two of thesis -were taken: up by detachments of
men, as numerous as; could work to advantage,
and brought to bear upon the walls with all the
power they Could exert, while; the troops; kept
up a fire to protect - them from the fire, poured
upon them from the walls. Presently the! walls
began to tremble, a breach was made, and the
imperial trotips rushed into the Inquisition.
Here wc met with an incident, which nothing
but Jesuitical effrontery is equal to. The In
quisitor General, followed by the father cbnfes
sors in their priestly 'robes, all came out of their
rooms, as we were niaking ouf way into the in
tcrior of the Inquisition, and with long faces and
their arms crossed over their breasts, their fin
gers resting on their shoulders, as though they
had been deaf to all t he noise jof the attack and
defence, and had just learned what was going
on, they addressed themselves in the language
of rebuke to jlheir own soldiers saying, 4 Why
do you Jighl our friends, the French?" j
Their intehtion, no! doubt was to make us
think that this.defence was wholly unauthorized

solemn bufinesa of the Holy Inquisition. ' r .

splendor and the. most perfect ortler on which

In 1809, Col. Lehmanolvskv was annull

Monasteries should be suppressed, but Ihe
decree he said-like sorrieiof the laws en?
acted in this, country, wjis not executed.
Months had passed away ;tnd the prisons
of the Inquisition had not been opened.
One nijght about lOorll ocock,as he was
walking one of the stree sbf Madrid, two
armed!men sprang upon h(m from an al
ley and made a furious attack.! He instant
ly drew his sword, and iu himself in a
posture of defence, and while struggling
with them, he saw: at a distancethe lights

the priests remonstrated against iur desecrating

Beneath the marble now partly tip, there was a
stair-case. I stepped to the altar and took from !
the candle-stick one of the candles four feet in
length, which was! burning, that I might explore
the room below. 'As I was doing this I was
arrested by one ofl ihe Inquisitors, who laid his
hand gently on my arm. and with a very demure
and holy! look, said, My son, you must not take

to shed light on ioiquity; : will bear the;, re

I totk the candle and proceeded dowh ' the
stair-case. As we readied the foot of the stairs,
we entered a large square room, : which; was
called the Hall of Judgment;.. In the centre fwas
a large block, and a chain fastened to it. Qn this

ancj alii in chains. Here were old men and
aged wpmeri, w(ho had? been shut up for many
years, j Heje tDo yere the middle aged, and
the; young man an dthe maiden cf 14 years!
The soldiers immediately went to work to re
lease . thej captives from the chains, and took
from their knapsacks thei overcoats and other
clothing, whtch they gave to cover theij- naked
ness. ThejT were exceedingly anxious to bring
them to the light of day but Col. L. aware of
the danger, had food given to them, and brought
them to the jlight as they were able to bear it.
- We then proceeded, said Col., L. to explore
another room on the lelt. Here we lound in
struments of torture of every kind which the
ingenuity of men or devils could invent. Col.
Lk hero described four of these horrid instru
ments. The first was a machine by which the
victim .was confined; and then beginning with
fingers, every joint in the. hands, arms and body,
was broken, one after another, until the victim
died. The second was a box in w hich the head
and neck of ; the victim was so closely confined
hy a screw, that he could not move in any way.
Over tho box was a vessel, from which a drop
of water a second fell upon the head of the vic
tim every successive drop tailing precisely pn
the same place on the head, suspended the cir
culation in a few moments, and put the sufTerer
in the most excruciating agony. The third was
an .infernal machine laid horizontally, to which
the victim was hound, the machine being placed
between, two leams, in which were scores of
knives so fixed, that by turning the machine
with a crank, the flesh of the sufferer was torn
from him in small pieces. The fourth surpass
ed the others in fiendish ingenuity. Its exteri
or was a beautiful woman, or large doll, richly
dressed, with arms extended, ready to embrace
its victim. Around her feet a semicircle was
drawn. The victim who passed over this fatal
mark, touched a spring, which caused the dia
bolical engine to open, its arms clasped him,
and a thousand knives cut him' into as many
pieces in the- deadly embrace. .
Col. L. said that the sijiht of those infernal
machines of crtelty, kindled the rage of the
soldiers toibry. They declared that the Inqtiis-
itor and eyery soldier ot the inquisition should

ernablc. C(1. L. did not oppose them ; they
might have turned their arms against him, if
he had attempted to arrest their work. They
began with the Holy Fathers. The first -they,
piit'to death in the machine for breaking joints.
The torture of the Inquisitor put to death by
the drnpping of water was excruciating. The
poor man cried out fn agony to be taken Hon)
the fatal machine. The Inquisitor General was
brought before the infernal machine called 'the
Virgin !' He begs to be excused. 4 No, said
they, you have caused others to kiss her, and
now you must do it.' They interlocked their
bayonets so as to form large forks, and wilh
these pushed him over the deadly circle. The
beautiful doll instantly prepared for the deadly
emhrace, clasped him in its arm?, and he was
cut into innumerable pieces. Col. L. said he
witnessed the torture of four of them his heart
sickened at the sight and he left the soldiers
to wreak the vengeance upon the last guilty in
mate of this prison house' of hell.
In the- mean time, it was reported through'
Madrid, that the prisons of the Inquisition were ;j
hrotcen open ; and multitudes hastened to the
fatal spot. And O, what a meeting was there !
It was like a resurrection! About a hundred
who had been buried for many years, were now
restored to life. There were fathers who f Rind
their long lost 1 daughters, wives were restored
to their husbands, listers to their brothers, and
parents to their children ; and there were some
who could recognize no friend among the mul
titude. The scene was such as no tongue can
describe. ' ! !
Vhen the multitude had retited, Col. L.
caused the library, paintings, furniture, &rM to
be removed, and having sent to the city for a
wagon load of powder, he deposited a larre

A Touching Serve. In New York, last '
week, the Pupifs of ihe Deaf and Dumb School
were brought down by 'their Teachers, to see
Peale's great picture of " The Court of Death."
Mr. peet, the Principal, interpreted its meaning
in signs to the pupils. It must, indeed, have
been a touching sight to witness the interesting
unfortunates silently gazing on the almost speak
ing canvass, and turning their eyes to their Pre-
i ceptor, to receive from him explanations of what
was noscure or douhttul. ilow eager must
they have been to catch every line of shade pf
the picture, and whenever they became sensi
ble.o"the idea of the artist without the aid of
the lecturer, how much their delight was en
hanced by the fact. It is seldom one has an op
portunity ofwilnessing such an exhibition of
unfeigned appreciation, aHhose silent admirers
afforded. ! ! ! . ;
