PORTER C. BLISS. 

The following account of the life of the late Porter C. Bliss, 
who died on the morning of Monday, February 2nd, 1885, 
appeared in the columns of the Nac York Times shortly before 
his death under the caption of — "A Remarkable Career — Inci- 
dents in the Life of an American Journalist — Varied Adventures 
— Tortured in South America — A Man of Many Tongues and 
Accomplishments " : — 

"Porter Cornelius Bliss, A. M., who is now lying on a cot in St. Luke's 
Hospital, under treatment for aneurism, has had a more eventful and interest- 
ing career than that of almost any other American journalist, and some portions 
of his history read more like chapters from a romance than the record of adven- 
tures in real life. Mr. Hiiss is but 46 years old, having been born on the Cat- 
taraugus Reservation of Seneca Indians, in Erie County, this State, Dec. 23, 
1S38. He studied at Hamilton and Yale, and in 1S60 began his travels by a 
tour through Maine, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, undertaken in the 
service of several Boston societies, to investigate the condition of the Indian 
tribes, a subject in which he had taken a deep interest from boyhood. After 
fulfilling this commission, in 1861, he went to Washington, hoping to secure a 
position in the Interior Department, which would give him the opportunity to 
continue his studies of the Indians beyond the Mississippi ; but, although he 
went to President Lincoln armed with recommendations from such men as 
Longfellow, Oliver Wendell Holmes and the historian Bancroft, he only suc- 
ceeded in securing a clerkship in the department, a position of which his ener- 
getic nature soon wearied, and, when General James Watson Webb was made 
Minister to Brazil, in the latter part of 1861, Mr. Bliss was appointed his pri- 
vate secretary. In 1S62, when General Webb surrendered his ofTice, Mr. Bliss, 
instead of returning with him, made a trip to Buenos Ayres, and three days 
after arriving there he was commissioned by the Argentine Republic to explore 
the Indian country known as the Grand Chaco. an immense desert inhabited by 
Indian tribes He spent eight months in this service, and during that lime 
acquainted himself with various Indian dialects, and studied the antiquities of 
the country and the habits of the natives. The results of his exploratior.s were 
published by the Government, and are standard authorities on the Indian tribes 
of the Grand Chaco. 

" For a short time after this Mr. Bliss edited a monthly periodical in Buenos 
Ayres, which was called the River Platte Magazine. Then he went to Para- 
guay, where his friend Charles A. Washburne was serving as United States 
Minister. Mr. Washburne made him his private secretary in i366, and he was 
appointed by I'resident Lopez to write a history of Paraguay. While tliis work 
was in progress, Lopez declared war against Brazil, Uruguay and the Argentine 
Republic, and from this event the trouble of the young historian began. 
Knowing that he had come from P.razil, the Paraguay detectives suspected him 
of hostility to l.o;,ez, and his footsteps were dogged for weeks and months. 
Finally the archives of the Government were closed to him, and he was informed 
that his contract was at an end, and that he would not be paid for his work. 
Minister Washburne in the meantime had offered his mediation between Lopez 
and the enemy, and secured a treaty with the understandmg that if Lopez would 
leave the o i:itry his life should be spared. This Lopez declined to do, and 
the enemy boaib.irded the city. Mr. Washburne had resigned his position as 
Minister, and a boat was prepared to take him away. Mr. Bliss started for this 



boat, but was captured by the police of Lopez, with a Mr. Masterson, and 
thrown into a duiijjL'on until nigiit, when bolh were strapped to the backs of 
mules anil carried to tiie army headtiuarters, a day's journey. Here they were 
scourjjed and tortured by want of food and persecuted in every conceivable way 
to force them to confess that they had conspired aj^ainst Lope/ and his (lovern- 
menl. Mr. Uliss's head was tied to his feet for hours at a time, and as an even 
more cruel form of torture he was laid on his face and a terrible pressure was pul 
on the sjuall of his back. He had been arrested on Septembi.T lo. iS6S, and it 
was December lo, a period of three months, before he w.n tiually relieved from 
imprisoiment and perseciition, on the demand of the United States Govern- 
ment, enforced by an American squadron 

" When .Mr. Hliss reached VVashinjjton , after his roujjh e.'cperience in Para- 
guay, he was made translator to the State Department, a position which his 
extensive knowledije of languages qualilied him excellently lo fill. He had 
learned Spanish in three weeks, and he had a retnarkable talent for acijuiring 
languages and dialects. .\t his request the Committee on Foreign Affairs of 
the House investigated the cliarges made against him in Paraguay by the Lopez 
(ioverainent and d-'clared them unfounded. After serving a few months as 
translator, he took editorial charge of the Washington Chronicle, in the Winter 
of iS&(), auvl held tiits position until July, 1870, when President Grant appointed 
him Secretary of Legation to Mexico. In this capacity he serveil until July, 
1874— two ye.irs imder Minister TiiotTias H. Nelson, of Indiana, and ;\vj 
under the Hon. John W. Foster, now Minister to Spain. Here, while attend- 
ing to his clerical work as Secretary, he found time to stikly and write on the 
history, geography and condition of Mexico and on American enterprises in 
that rcjiubiic. He served as interpreter between (ienerals Rosecrans and 
Palmer, the first promoters of an .Vmerican railroad in Mexico, and the (jov- 
ernment of the cotmtry, pnd did a great deal of clerical work for England, 
France and Spain, who had no representatives in Mexico at the time. For 
three months at the close of 1872 he served as acting Minister or Charge 
d'.Vffaires in the absence of the .Minister. He became an active member of the 
Mexican Geographical anl Statistical Society, and was Chairman of the Com- 
mittee on .\rch.eological Explorations, in which capacity he visited and excav- 
ated the sites of the most remarkable ruins in the Valley of Mexico, reports on 
whicli were publislied in the bulletins of the -Society. In the midst of all these 
arduous duties he still found time to do something for humanity's sake. He 
succeeded in saving from execution three prominent officers of the insurrection- 
ary forces headed by CJeneral, now President, Diaz, in the revolution of 1S72. 
These officers had been captured, tried by a drum-head court-martial, and con- 
demned to death within forty-eight hours at the City of Puebla. One of them, 
a Colonel Meyer, was an .\rgentine by birth, and had rendered distinguished 
services to the Union Army during our own civil war, and the State Depart- 
ment on this account had once before interceded for him and secured his release 
from imprisonment. Mr. Pliss, after spending an entire day fruitlessly in the 
attempt to interest the Cabinet officers in the fate of the condemned men, 
finally at eleven o'clock at night, when they were to be shot at daybreak, 
almost forced his way into the presence of President Juarez, and succeeded 
in getting t'.ie cxecutioti suspended by a telegraphic order. Presidcr.t fuarez 
died himself within two weeks of that time, and the officers were released. For 
this service Mr. Bliss received the personal thanks of General Diaz. 



" In the Summer of 1S74 Mr. Bliss came to this city and became one of the 
o.'fice editors of Johnson's Kncyclop.vdia, taking charge of the biographical 
department and contributing largely to several of the others. Over 1,500 of 
the biographies in this work were written by him, and the larger and more 
important ones bear his signature. He also contributed articles on Sanskrit 
and Portuguese literature, and on many other subjects requiring special prepar- 
ation and learning. When the Encyclopedia was completed, in 1S77, Mr. 
Bliss undertook, as editor and part proprietor, the management of a literary 
periodical, which he called the Library Table, but the time was unfavorable for 
such a publication and the venture proved disastrous. In 1S78 he wrote for 
Hubbard Brothers, publishers, of Philadelphia, a histor)' of the Russo-Turkish 
war, which ended that year, entitled " 'I'he Conquest of Turkey," and later in 
the same year became one of the editors of the New York Herald, having 
charge at first of the biographical department, and writing many hundreds of 
biographies of living men of note for future use. He also wrote editorials and 
geographical, historical and statistical sketches, for which his great range of 
information especially fitted him. In 1S79 he again visited South .\merica for 
the Herald, going this time to the west coast as war correspondent at the 
beginning of the w.ir between Chili, Peru and Bolivia. He spent a great 
deal of time at Arica and Tacna, the headquarters of the Peruvian and Bolivian 
armies, and became a great favorite with Presidents Prado, of Peru, and Daza, 
of Bolivia. During this visit to South America he had several notable adven- 
tures, one of which was sustaining by himself a bombardment by the Peruvian 
monitor Huascar, while inside the hull of the abandoned man-of-war IVaferee, 
which had been carried inland nearly a mile by the great tidal wave of which 
accompanied the earthquake of iS6g. Mr. Bliss had walked out to the 
IVaieree to inspect her. Just as he was about to enter the hull he heard a 
loud report, and a shell whizzed by him. Turning toward tlie sea he saw that 
the Huascar was engaging in target practice and using the Wateree as the 
target. With the instinct of the correspondent he scrambled into the hull 
and remained there two hours, until the bombardinent ceased, accurately 
timing the shells and writing a report of his sensations. 

"Mr. Bliss returned to New York in 1879, and two years later went to 
Mexico on a gold-hunting expedition on his own responsibility and in behalf of 
some friends. During this trip he underwent great hardships in the rough 
mountainous regions of Southern Mexico, being on horseback for forty days in 
the height of the rair.v season, and suffering from exposure and lack of food. 
It was here that he sowed the seeds of the disease from which he is now suffer- 
ing, and from the edects of which he has twice before been confined in St. 
I .uke's Hospital. Since his return he has been unable to do any work except 
during a few months in 18R3, when he acted as editor of the Ntn' IfaTcii 
Morning Ne~ii<s. Mr. Bliss was I'resident of the American I'hilological Society, 
of this city, in 1871) and 18S0, and is a member of the .\merican Society for 
the .\dvancement of Science, of the .\merican -Antiquarian Society, of the 
American I'.thnological Society, and of the American Oriental Society. I'" or 
many years he has been a diligent and enthusiastic student of Oriental antiqui- 
ties, particularly r(-lative to .Assyria, Babylonia and Kgypt, and has more than 
on'": been on the point of undertaking an expedition to these rc;;ions, but was 
prevented by unforeseen circumstances."

only six of the above " Tratados " in his 1868 catalogue, and stated — 
" De Bure, in whose time only five parts were known, speaks of their 
excessive rarity. Richarderie has no other particularisation of parts 
than those noticed by De Bure; nor was Llorente, in his notice of the 
works of Las Casas, better informed, as he only mentions the first five. " 
The above copy contains seven parts ! ! 

So complete a collection of these rare pieces is not to be found, and 
very seldom in such fine condition. They attracted great attention 
throughout the Christian world when they first appeared, the first and 
most important one having been translated and printed in Latin, 
Spanish, German. Italian, French and English. The Carter-Brown 
Library, in Providence, possessed forty different editions of the Brevis- 
sima Relacion in various languages. 

'■ The character of Las Casas may be inferred from his career. He 
was one of those to whose gifted minds are revealed those glorious 
moral truths which, like the lights of heaven, are fixed and the same 
for ever. lie was a reformer, and had the virtues and errors of a re- 
former. He was inspired by one great and glorious idea. This was 
the key to all his thoughts, all that he said or wrote, and to every act of 
his long life. It was this which made him reckless of obstacles, led 
him to count too confidently on the cofiperation of others, animated his 
discussion, sharpened his invective, too often steeped his pen in the 
gall of personal vituperation, led him to gross e.\aggeratian, and a blind 
credulity of evil that rendered him unsafe as a counsellor, and unsuc- 
cessful in the practical concerns of life. . . . The best commentary on 
his character is the estimation which he obtained in the court of his 
sovereign. A liberal pension was settled on him after his last return 
from America, which he chiefly expended on charitable objects. No 
measure of importance relating to the Indians was taken without his 
advice. He lived to see the fruits of his efforts in the positive amelio- 
ration of their condition, and in the popular admission of those great 
truths which it had been the object of his life to unfold." — Prkscott,

Dobrizhoffer was one of those extraordinary men who organized in 
Paraguay a government that has not ceased to excite the wonder and 
perplex the reason of all who tried to comprehend its strange anomalies. 
For a century and a half it existed as a pure hierarchy, insulated and 
intact : more mysterious than the fabled Amazonian Republic, or the 
equally mythical El Dorado. For a half century succeeding it has re- 
mained the only example of a people professing to be free existing 
under a tyranny supported solely by themselves.

1-".X IKEMKLY R.\RK. In the earlier editions of lirunet's .Manu.d, this 
work is mentioned as being the earliest specimen of .\merican printing 
known. 

Lord Kingsborough's copy of the 1571 Molina cost him /^ 50, /. r., 
$250. It was afterwards marked by Thorpe, of London, in i''^43, for 
^28, /. c, S140. 

The author, Molina, a native of Spain, was taken in early life to 
Me.xico (1523), where he soon learnt the Mexican language, and even 
as a child acted as interpreter between the first missionaries and the 
native Intlians. He afterwards devotetl his life to the propagation of 
useful knowledge in the Mexican language, and his known works bear 
testimoni,' to his great zeal.

short, also last page of Inde.x).

This wonderful work, to which the entire life of l;itlicr Sah.i^un

authentic, history of events, transpiring in the New World before its 
discovery by Columbus. .Ml that relates to the rtli;;ion-, customs,

' ' This history is without question the most complete in respect to 
the antiquity of Mexico of any hitherto published." — Cla\igero. 

Juan de Torquemada, whom Alaman calls the " I.ivy of New 
Spain," studied in Mexico, where he took the habit of St. Francis and 
became the Provincial of the Order for that country. He wrote his 
" Indian Monarchy," after having collected everything which he could 
find that related to the history of the country, and the customs, man- 
ners, laws, etc., of its aboriginal inhabitants. This work forms a col- 
lection, indispensable to all who desire to know much of the ancient 
history of Mexico and its inhabitants, as well as to all those writers 
who extract their material from the stores of others. 

The edition of 1723 is the most complete, having been edited by the 
indefatigable Barcia, and is preferred by scholars to the first edition, 
printed in 3 volumes at Madrid in 1613.

One of the best authorities on the history and theology of the 
miraculous Guadaloupana of Mexico, founded upon the alleged 
appearance of the Blessed Virgin Mary to Juan l^iego, the Indian, in 
1531: This subject has become one of the Stock Institutions of

972 VEGA (El Inca Garcilaso de la). La Florida del' Inca 

HisTORiA DEL Adelantado HERNANDO de SOTO— y 
el Ensaio Chronologico escrito por Don Gabriel de Car- 
denas y Cano, Folded pedigree, 2 vols, in i. Old 
sheep (wormed). Madrid, 1723 

The author was the son of one of the conquerors of Peru, Garlicaso 
de la Vega, by the daughter of the Inca Hualpa Tapac and sister of 
Huayna Capac Inca, the last native monarch of Peru. He was so 
proud of both paternal and maternal origin, that while he assumed the 
Spanish name of the first, he was careful to assert his Incarial descent. 
He was evidently a gentleman of refinement and possessed of much 
more learning than was usually acquired by the coiiquestados them- 
selves . That one of Indian blood and a descendant of the proud races 
of the Incas should have been the most industrious and careful his- 
torian of the evil fortunes of his race and the chronicler of the victories 
of their conquerors may well excite our surprise.
