This punishment is reported to have been inflicted upon malefactors,
who have endeavoured to make their escape. A vessel containing
Chunam , a species of mortar, is at hand , to be applied, by way of styptic , to the wounds. It is said , that this punishment has been lately abolished , the legislature considering, that the natural inclination for liberty, merited not a chastisement of such severity.
