CONDOROMA, a settlement and asiento of the
silver mines of the province of Canes and Canches
or Tinta in Peru, -where, during tempests of thun-
der and lightning, is experienced a singular phe-
nomenon ; namely, a certain prickly sensation upon
the hands and face, -which they called moscas,
(flies), though none of these insects are ever seen.
It is indeed attributed to the air, which is at that
time highly charged with electric fluid ; the effects
of which may be observed on the handles of sticks,
buckles, lace, and other metal trinkets ; the same
effects ceasing as soon as the tempest is over. It
is observed, that in no other parts is the same phe-
nomenon known to exist.
