The general opinion is that the Paraguay
ins are half savages. They do generally re
lemble the native Indians in color, and they
ire like them also in the simplicity and indo
lence of their mode of life ; but tbus far the
war has been marked witb great humanity.
The utmost attention is paid to prisoners and
wounded, and private plunder is strictly for
bidden. They seem to be striving to imitate
the discipline and kindness of tbe armies of
the Uuited States. We scarcely feel any of
/the detrimental effects of the war in this
licity. The war has brought activity and life
jio many circles. Large numbers of sewing
"machines have been sold, and hundreds of
them are at work. Goods of certain kinds
have been completely swept from the market

terior is arriving in large quantities. Only
Corrientes really feels the war on its soil.
The province of Santa Fe is making steady
progress in spite of the war. The Central

being extended to Cblvilcoy, the heart of tbe
finest wheat country in South America. The
Southern Railroad works are rapidly extend

steamers aie crowded at every trip, and are
most of the time under charter for the trans
portation of troops.
A European steamer recently brought one

Some beef packed here in American style

The Brazilian Account.
The Cosmopolite gives the following ver
sion of the battle, chiefly obtained from Se
nor Munis Barretto, Commissary General of
the Brazilian fleet:
On Sundey morning, June 11, the Para
guayan fleet came down the Parana, and a
terrible naval combat ensued with the im
perial squadron, commencing at halfpast
ufoe A. M. and lasting till six P. M., during
which the combatants, on both sides, per
formed prodigies ot valor, and the slaugh
ter waa teiTiflc. The Paraguayan fleet was
composed of eight steameis, tbe Tacuari,
Paraguay, Marquis de Olinda, Ipora. Salto,
and Jeluy, and six flat boats mourning sixty
eight or eighty-pounders; the enemy had
also a battery of rifled cannons of heavy cal
ibre, from which they poured continued vol
leys of Congreve rockets, grape, &c. Their
fleet carried boarding crews, mustering sev
enteen hundred men, and the land batteries
were manned by two thousand horse and
foot. The Brazilian fleet numbered nine
gunboats, the other two being at Esquina.
The combat took place some three leagues
below the city of Carrientes in front of the
mouth of the Riachuelo. The attack was
begun by the Paraguayans, the Tacuari aud
Marquis de Olinda Doaiding the Paranahiba,
and the Salto attacking some veksel on tbe
poop. A boarding party of the enemy
leaped on deck and soon were masters of all
the att part of the vessel, while a Paraguay
an officers seized the helm and gave orders
to the engineers. At the same time the Bra
zilian flag was hauled down,and the steamer
all but captured, when the Amazonas came to
her assistance, and overpowered the assail
ants, recovering the Paranahiba and sinking
the Salto. The Tacuari and Olinda drew
off but the latter went aground, and was
immediately abandoned. The fight between
the Amazonas aud the three Paraguayan
steamers was desperate and sanguinary, the
former capturing the commanders ot the
Olinda and Salto, and Admiral Messa, of the
Tacuari, being killed in a hand-to
hand conflict. At this moment the
Paraguay run aground, being pur
pursued by tbe Araguary, and burnt by tbe
Brazilians. Bat tbe imperial gunboat Je
quitinhonha met with a like misfortune, run
ning aground under tbe enemy's land batte
ries, having lost her pilot, and was abandon
ed after a severe conflict with the batteries.
After the loss of tbe Salto, Olinda, and Para
guay, and the death of their Admiral, tbe
Paraguayans got disheartened, and the Ama
zonas succeeded in singing the Jejuy and
taking five flatboats (the other being sunk,)
the rest of the enemy's fleet beat a precipi
tate retreat, tbe only vessels escaping being
the Tacuari, Ipora and Ibera, from which
most of tbe crews had swam ashore. At six
P. M., the battle was over and the Brazilian
fleet master of the day, having only lost one
vessel. But the carnage.was unprecedented,
the loss ot the enemy being of course far tbe
greatest. Our kilted and wounded (the Bra
zilian) exceed three hundred, including nine
teen officers; the enemy's list is estimated at
one thousand three hundred men of tbe fleet
hors de combat and five hundred killed or
woUDded in the batteries, according to tbe
reports of passengers from Corrientes per
her Majesty's.gunboat Doterel. All the Bra
zilian vessels are more or less injured, but
will soon be repaired and ready again for
service. On the day after the battle (Mon
day) the Biraziliau9 proceeded to destroy the
machinery and spike the guns of the Jequi
tinbonha, at the same time suffering a deadly
fire from tbe land batteries. Lopez was at
Humayta waiting tbe news of the battle, and
so ..sure was he of the victory that he had
provided bis vessels with cables to tow up
Brazilian vessels. A proclamation was also
found on board his steamers, addressed to
the boardingjerews, styling them the “Bower
ot his armies." CaptaiiT Johnson, of the
Doterel, was with Lopez at Humayta when
tbe news arrived, and he remarked with a
smile that Paraguay could easily afford to
lose three thousand men and four steamers.
The Doterel has brought to Parana the
wounded Paraguayans abandoned on board
the Marquis de Olinda, which lies a complete
The Anglo Brazilian Times says :
Since the engagement the Brazilian fleet
has been reinforced by three vessels and seven
hundred troops, so that it is stronger than
before the action. The Paraguayans, how
ever seem determined to effect its capture or
destruction ; and planted a heavy battery at
the mouth of the Empedrado, with which,
while withdrawing further down the river,
owing to its rapid lowering the fleet, had a
smart skirmish while passing, and tbe ac
counts say that communication between
Buenos Ayres and the fleet was cut off by
other batteries below the position of the
From Rio Grande do Sul comes tbe news
of the Paraguayans having crossed the Uru
guay and entered the province.
The Paraguayan army in the province of
Corrientes was reported to be retiring to
wards the city of Corrientes and Tranqueira
de Loreto (the Jesuits canal commenced be
tween the Upper Parana and the north ex
treme of Lake Ybera), followed by the Argen
tine forces under Caceres and Hornos ; but
this retirement was very doubtful. Urquiza
bad reached tbe province of Corrientes with
the Entre-Rians, and witb the Buenos Av
rean infantry under Paunero, would, iu com
bination with the Corrientes troops, proba
bly be able to make head against the Para
uayans, although, from the Argentines being
chiefly badly "armed cavalry, they could not
General Mitre was at Concordia with about
six thousand wen. Tbe Brazilians had
about twelve thousand infantry and five
thousand cavalry in the vicinity of that
town, having commenced crossing the Uru
guay on the 24th of June. General Flores
was steaming witb bis forces for the same
point, and tne original plan of operations
seemed to be intended to be adhered to, not
withstanding tbe invasion of the province ot
Rio Grande do Sul by the Paraguayans aud
the reported capture of San Borja. The Pa
raguayan forces in CorrieDtes weie stated to
be twentv-five or thirty thousand wen and
the allied armies to consist of about twenty
thousand infantry and eighteen thousand
cavalry. General Osorio was at Concordia.
General Lopes was to be at Corrientes.
Advices from Rio Janeiro to tbe 9th ult.
states tbat tbe Emperor was to leave that
day for Rio Grande do Sul, after proroguing
the Chambers until next May. His Majesty
is to be accompanied by the Duke ot Saxe,
the Marquis of Caxias, tbe Minister of War,
Slid other high officers of State. It was tbe
general opinion that the Marquis of Caxias
would be appointed commander-in-chief of
the Brazilian armies.
The Battles in South Ameriia.
An eyewitness of the great nayal battle,
in a letter to Tbe Buenos Ayres Standard,
dated Gorrinetes, June 14, suys :
“At 9 o’clock on tbemorning of the 1 ltb,
eight Paraguayan steumer9 forced the pass oc
cupied by the Brazilian fleet, which counted
ten gunboats with one hundred rifled can
non on hoard. The eight small vessels of the
enemy sustained a tremendous cannonade
from tbe imperial fleet and passed down the
river, hut one of them was damaged in her
machinery and forced to mn aground un
der tbe Paraguayan batteries at Riachuelo,
which consisted of light field pieces. The
Brazilians at once gave chace to the enemy,
and the Marques de Olinda was attacked by
tbe Belmonte. The Paraguayans ran their
own vessel aground and leaped on board the
Brazilian vessel, when a terrible band-to
band fight ensued, lasting for ten minutes,
but tbe boarders prevailed, and in a quarter
of an hour from attack the Paraguayan flag
was flying from the Belmonte, all her crew
having either perished or escaped by swim
ming. In half an hour two Brazilian vessels
hoarded the Belmonte, and now the engage
ment became general between nine Brazilian
and six Paraguayan vessels. It lasted six
hours, with tne most desperate heroism and
awful carnage on both Sides, but the Para
guayans were so hnrd pressed that they had
to run two more of their vessels aground
near tbeir batteries. One Brazilian gunboat
was totally destroyed, and another nearly so.
The losaee are very heavy on both sides,
about 1,600 between both ; 84 RrariHitna
who swam ashore fell into enemy’s
hands. Tbe Brazilian fleet ie much dam
aged. and at the hour I write the batteries of
Riachuelo are firing on their Vessels. The
SAVANNAH, GEORGIA, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 23, 1865.
I Uruguayans state that they have a reserve
force ot 20,000 men at Humayta, beside the
three corps <f armee in this province. The
Belmonte and Amazonas has honorable
marks of the recent combat, but cannot
keep afloat excedt by pumping. The Para
guayian Admiral Messa is not killed ; he
escaped with a slight wound in the shoul
‘■The political effects of this victory,” says
The Anglo-Brazilian Times :
“Are of the greatest moment, as had the
Paraguayans succeeded, as they anticipated,
in capturing the Brazilian fleet, the whole of
the cities of the Plate would have lain at their
mercy, and, with the command of the rivers,
and perhaps tbe sea, the Brazilian and Argen
tine armies could not have maintained their
ground tor any length of time, and Lopez
might have made a long stride toward the
accomplishment of his designs- Since the
engagement the Brazilian fleet has been te
enforced by three vessels and 700 troops, so
that it is stronger than before the action.—
The Paraguayans, however, seem determin
ed to effect its capture or destruction, and
planted a heavy battery at tbe mouth of the
Empedrado, with which, while withdrawing
further down the river, owing to its rapid
lowering, the fleet had a smart skirmish
while passing, and latest accounts say that
communication between Buenos Ayres and
the fleet was cut off by other batteries below
tbe position of the squadron.”
The Standard says : “The greatest fight
ing yet seep in the Paraguayan war has been
at San Borja, and, strange to say, people in
Buenos Ayres are very much in the dark
about it, nor is it exactly known whether
the Paraguayans have taken the place or not.
We only know that the combat began on the
10th and lasted five days. At first a force of
6,000 of the enemy crossed the Uruguay, and
drove back the Brazilian garrison, 2,000
strong. Subsequently the invaders were re
enforced, till enabled to invest San Baya
with 12,000 men and some field artillery.—
The garrison was also strengthened by some
militia regiments, including a body of 700
German colonists, aud tbe most desperate
fighting ensued, the enemy seeming resolved
to take the place at any cost, and the Bra
zilians holding out with the hope of relief
from Gen. Canavarro. Rumors are preva
lent in Montevideo that the garrison finally
succumbed, with a loss variously estimated
from 700 to 1,500 men.”
Letters from Paso de los Libre9 to June 13
in The Puebla are to tbe following effect: —
“This morning at 9 o’clock several families
arrived here from Ataquil in great alarm,sta
ting the Inhabitants bad all fled from that
town, leaving it quite deserted, owing to the
Paraguayan invasion of San Borja. The en
emy appeared at the Henniguero on the
morning of the 10th with a body of 6,000 men
and a park of artillery.
“The pass being exactly in front of San
Borja, they opened a Are from their heavy
pieces on the town and destroyed several
houses, at the same time clearing the Rio
Grande bank of 400 brazilians who attempted
to dispute the passage, but were driven bHck
about a league behind tbe town. The Para
guayans then passed over a division of 6,000
men across the Uruguay by means of rafts
which carried 300 men and one piece of can
non each. Advancing on the town they
found it defended by 700 Germans and 400
Brazilians, who fought with amazing gal
lantry till midnight, but the result ot the at
tack is not yet known. Gen. Canavarro’s
army, estimated at 12,000 men, is already
two months on the march, but nothing is
known ot its whereabouts.”
EFFORTS TO STAY THE PESTILENCE —FEARS OF A
' “BLACK PLAOCE.”
The Bremen's advice 9 furnish dates from
Cairo, Egypt, to the 17th of July. A com
mission had been sent out to stop the pil
g-ims now on their journey from Mecca to
gypt by land at some marches the other
side of Suez. Should there be any appear
ance of cholera among them, they will be
detained at a safe distance from Suez until
the disease leaves their camp. The great
cholera which devastated Egypt .in 1832-3
broke out in July, which would correspond
with the period of the return of the pilgrims
in those years. The course of the disease at
Jedab is spoken of as most heartrending.
People were stricken down in the streets,
where, as strangers, they lay and perished
by hundreds for want of assistance. Mr.
Calvert, the British consul there, is reported
to have exerted himself heroically during
the fatal visitation. By the latest accounts
the disease had ceased at Jedab, but it was
very severe at Suakin. From Constantinople
we learn that a panic has consequently seized
the more wealthy, who have tied from the
infected city to establish themselves on the
shore of the Bosphorus and in the Isle of the
Princes. Ia some parts of Stamboni this
pauic has attained such dimensions that, ac
cording to a correspondent of the Indepen
dence, it is possible to walk through whole
streets and see no one save perhaps one or
two persons whose means will not permit
them to emigrate.
THE “black I'LAGUE.”
[From the Pall Mall Gazette.)
A rumor has been current of a violent dis
ease, spoken of as the “black plague” having
broken out at Bbartum. The description was
that large dark spots appeared on the arms,
legs and head, aud that the persons attack
ed were carried off iu a few hours. The
latest accounts from that locality do not men
tion the subject, and we may therefore hope
that the rumor is unfounded.
APPEARANCE OF THE DISEASE IN STRIA —A
PANIC AMONO THE PEOPLE OF BEVROUT.
[Corresponaence London Dally News.)
The cholera has broken out here, and there
is a regular pauic amongst all classes, Euro
pean as well aa native. As yet the deaths
only arnouut to four or five a day, but this
is quite enough to terrify tbe inhabitants of
Beyrout. The natives call cholera “el bowa
as far" (tbe yellow wind), and declare tbat
the atmosphere shows that we shall have a
bad time ot the disease until the cold weath
er sets in next October. Every one is rush
ing up to Lebanon. The smallest room iu
the dirtiest native house on tbe Mountain is
rented at 300 to 400 piasters a week (81. to
41.) Formerly, even last year, hall' that
amount would have been thought a high rent
tor the whole house in which i t is situated
for the hot weather, from April to Novem
If the epidemic gets very bad, all business
in Beyrout must come to a stand still, for the
people will not believe that any precautionary
measures can save them. The town here is
very badly drained, or rather, not drained at
all, and is so crowded it) many parts that the
bouse which formerly held ten people has
now twenty-five or thirty in it. Xu Lebanon
it is said the cholera never has, and never
will penetrete ; but I doubt this very much
indeed. The air there is certainly purer, and
the heat is not bo great; but in ail tbe vil
lages tbe drainage is worse than in Beyrout,
lor there ia not even a show of covering the
cesspool. Moreover, in tbe town here, the
people do bathe occasionally in the Turkish
baths, but iu the mountain the luxury of

THE CHOLERA IN TURKEY.
A letter from Constantinople to the Lon
don Times say 9 the dreadful .scourge the
cholera i9 extending its fatal 'marcu. All
vessels from suspected ports are stopped at
(be Dardenellee, which is a good arrange
ment, but tbe authorities have made no ar
rangements to provide for the reception or
requirements of the crowds detained there,
ana the stories which reach this place of the
suffering and misery of the unfortunate
creatures is fearlul; and I have no doubt
that through other channels you will be made
acquainted with some' of the horrors of this
cruelly organized quarantine. Many of the
ships detained there are crowded with pas
sengers who had only provided food suffici
ent for the voyage, not reckoning on the de
tention, and are consequently, dying of star
vation; others are crammed into the filthy
crowded Ezzaretto, and are dying from suf
focation and bed air. Guarded by an armed
force, who prevent all egress, as a matter of
course the cholera has broken out among
them, and there is no telling where it will
end, os every case entails an extension of
quarantine. If these teports are true—and I
believe they are to a great extent—it is dis
graceful for a government calling itself civil
ized. In the capital and villages of tbe Bos
pqoras the sale of nearly all kinds of vege
tables, fruit, fish, and other articles of food
has been prohibited, and hundreds of poor
people, who depend upon tbe sale of these
things for a livelihood, are likely to be ruined.
One village on the Bosphorus, called tbe
Yenikeni, bus suffered so severely that all
the principal inhabitants have quitted it, and
the steamboats calling there have a place
