the steamship Saladin, from Rio Jan

Platte to. June 26, which gives an ac
count cf a severe naval engagement
between the Brazilian fleet and. eight’
Paraguayan steamers and eight float-’

’was displayed on both side's, and the
slaughter fearful. , The victory is
claimed by the Brazilians.’ ■ .
The engagement took place June
11, at Riachuclo, a ‘little “below Cor*

At San Gorgia, on the river Uru

town, und, it -is said, ■ put the entire
