A VERY ROMANTIC STORY. A newspaper published at Coloma, Mexico, on the 24th of October, tells the following frightful [and we cannot help adding improbable] story, and calls upon the public to punish the criminals:- When General Pueblita entered the town of Ayo, in Sep- tember last, he exacted a forced loan from the people, and a share of it fell upon the curate of the place. The curate acted as though he would pay, but he did not make his ap- pearance at the point designated for payment, and General Pueblita ordered him to be arrested. A party of men went to his dwelling and knocked at the door. There was no answer, and they broke in. They found no one in the house, and were about to leave it when they heard a frightful voice proceeding from the ground, saying, I am hungry." The officer in command went back to General Pueblita, and told him about the voice. The General appointed a commission to examine the house. This commission went to the curate's dwelling, and after a careful exami- nation, they found a moveable stone in the floor, and under this was a stairway leading down to a vault, which was entirely dark, and had no connection with the air, save the staircase, and a small hole that served as a ventilator, In this vault they found some books, a few articles of furni- ture, and a woman who had been shut up there for eighteen years. She was taken to General Pueblita's quarters. When brought into the light, where she saw a number of persons, she fainted. After she had returned to her senses, a thou- sand questions were asked her, to which she replied only that she had been buried in the vault for eighteen years, without going out for a moment; that she had been married, and had children by her husband, but she knew nothing of their fate that while imprisoned in the vault, she had had children by the curate, but she knew nothing of what had become of these children, and after saying this much she became obstinately silent. While this was passing a sergeant of the Pueblita brigade then present discovered that this woman was his mother, and she recognised him as her son and embraced him. The son then ran for his father, who came and recognised his wife. The husband fifteen years ago was imprisoned three years on the charge of having murdered his wife, this woman.
