What niiikra ninttera wormi Ik that tho In
Burrectlon should hnvo broken out In ono
of tho handsomest cities of tho South
American continent. Whatever tho ultl
inato jiolltlcnl reault may Ikj, tho city has
been terribly damaged, Its commercial
prosperity Injured, nnd Its growth checked
for at leant tho next ten years.
Tho city of lluonoii Ayret Is a capital, u
motropolU and uvon more. On account of
tho river nystom of tlm continent It com
mands not only tho trade of ItH own land
hut also a goodly part of that of Uruguay,
Paraguay and Uracil. Whllo thoroughly
Bpanish It Is nlmnit as polyglot as Now
York. Its population contains heavy rep
resentations from Italy, Portugal, (Jrcoco,
France, Germany, England, Ireland, Scot
land, Holland, Denmark nnd China, as well
as largo numbers of negroes, Indians and
half breed. In tho past docado It has re
ceived as many If not more Italian iinml
grant n tho entire United States. Along
side ot It tho other Argentina municipali
ties, such as Hosarlo and Cordovan, tdnk
into Inslgulllcance. Its relation to tho na
tion is tlm name oh would bo tlmt ot Now
York to tho United States, were tho latter
to havo a population of 0,000,000, with Chi
cago and Philadelphia cut down to 600,000
Thosttoot tho city is admirable. It lies
upon tlm west bttuk of tho great La Plata
rlvor, which at thin tiolnt Ih a hugo arm of
tho ea, incapable of doing damage by
XrcsUct or Inundation, aud almost so by
heavy sUirtn or high tide. Tho land slopes
at a small auglo upward toward tho in
terior, being a part ot tho saiuo geologic
formation as th famous pampas or plains
inland. Tho soil Is fertile, nud contains
enough saud aud gravel to give It a suerb
natural drainage. As a consequence there
Is but little marsh land and little or no
malaria orsymotlo diseases. As compared
with Montevideo, Rio do .Tanlero, Uahla
nnd Pernambuco, Uuenos Ay res is cleaner,
drier, cooler and fnr mom healthful.
Tho original architects of the city were
wisor than those of tho older North Amer
ican cltias, aud laid tho placo out upon
broad aud liberal linos. Tho streets are
wide, straight aud handsome, and ovory
hero and there parks and publlo squares
afford breathing spaces aud lounging
places to tho clthons. Tho two leading
squares were recently tho entrenched
camps of tho government nnd tho revolu
tionists. That of -tho former, tho Plaza
Victoria, or Victoria square, is Mtuated at
tho cast cud, or oldest part ot tho city,
almost on tho river's bank. It is a mnss
of fluo trees nnd beautiful vegetation, well
lighted by gas nnd electricity, and contain
iug many tlno works of art. Around it
aro four lines of largo buildings, including
tho cathedral, archleplscopal palnco, the
Central "National bank, city hall, custom
house, government olllco building and
Tho government buildings are laruro aud
commodious, nnd about as ugly ns the
New York postofllce. Their shelling by
tho insurgent gunboats will therefore bo
a blessing In disguise. Tho cathedral is a
very noblo cdillco. It Is a masslvo pile, 153
rect wiao una a roct long. Tlio front Is a
perfect reproduction of n Corinthian temnlu
at tho liest period of Greek art, and its In
ferior U funioni for Its beauty and com
fort. Tho only drawback Is a clumsy dome,
which suggests a monster rlllo bullet, and
which is as ugly as tho facade Is beautiful.
Unllko in Uracil, tho church In Uuenos
Ayrcs has not antagonized tho Intelligent
classes, and enjoys popular respect and,
what is moro important, support. Tho
cathedral is without exception tho best
architectural featuro of tho city, and is
dally visited by travelers from every part
of tho globo.
Tho other great square which wiw held by
the lusurgents is thoPlazaLavalloorPluza

cheap nnd unattractive, the only buildings
of prominence bclug an artillery magazine,
a church, a police station and a few stores.

to the other, nnd along thcta most ot the

It Is strange how the Latin republics run
to civil wnr. Ot the fifteen (outside of
Mexico) there is not ono but whoso history

tho record of theo nntlons may thereforo
bo of Interest to tho render. "
Uuenos Ayres Is no strnngor to civil wnr.
In 1810 and 1SI1 there wero flerco struggles
over tho establishment of a provisional
government. In 1810 thoy declared them
selves Independent of tho Spanish crown,
and ngnlu went to fighting on their imu
account. Uctweeu lt7 and 18.Y3 no lis
than thirty Insurrections broko out, blos
somed for a day and then dlsapteored.
In 18.VJ-,) they had a general civil wnr, In
which tho lo.isivs on each sldo were very
large. From that tlmo on thoy havo had
llttlo or no domestic trouble until 1800.
Uracil's recent revolution, In which the
empire was destroyed, tho omiieror exiled
and a republic proclaimed, is not tho first
In her Interesting history. Her Unit In
surrection occurred as far back as 1577.
Tlm second, which was n general rising
against a foreign and despotlo government,
occurred ill KIM. Fifteen years inter there
was an aiiortivo errort made to start an In
dependent kingdom. In KU5 a revolt
broko out which was suppressed after
great bloodshed, hut which lasted olT aud
on for nine years. A brief Insurrection
marked the year 1780 nn echo, n It
wore, of tho American wnr of independ
ence. From 1817 to IKS) four attempts to
create a republic wero made, but all
failed. The year INN saw civil war in
ono-hnlf tlm provinces of tho empire.
From tho last date to 1890 a wlso and
liberal government kept tho nation from
Intcrneclno iliniculticH. Tho lust revolution
achieved what had been thoobject of many

hundreds of mutinies, lntrlguen and revo

been Identified with any principle, aud all
of which wero apparently tho results of
quarrels among politicians, ofllco holders
and olllco seekers.

Uollvar, Tho war lasted cloven years.but tho
national autonomy was notrecognl.eduntll
1815 by tho mother country. From 1840 to
1870 there wero not less than thirty civil
wan. between tho Unionists and Federal
ists, tho two chief parties of tho Intnl.
Slnco that time they havo contented them
selves with two revolutions.
Colombia or New Grenada, as it is per
haps better known to American readers,
began Its revolutionary career in 1811,
when it declared Its independence of Spain.
In IbiW a terrible civil war occurred, occa
idoucd very much like the present one in
nueuoH Ayrcs by quarrels over tho na
tional debt. It lasted llvo years and nearly
ruined tho commonwealth. Dctwecn 18W
and 1873 over sixty insurrections nnd wide
spread mutinies occurred. Since thnt tlmo
tho nation has been comparatively peace
ful nnd hns enjoyed considerable pros
terlty. Ecuador started tho Insurrection busi
ness In 1800 nnd 181'J by un attempt to ol
tain self government. These failed, but In
18V0 a third attempt succeeded. During

the next twenty-live years there were two
uprisings: but amends were made for this
Uaween 1815 and 1885, in which iwrlod are
recorded seventeen revolutions of different
Chill rebelled from Spain in 1810, but was
crushed by tho hitter's armies six years
Inter, It reversed matters the following
year and became Independent. In 182.1 It
indulged In a first class revolution, fol
lowed by eight smaller ones, tlm last ono
being In 1830. A long period of peace aud
thrift was closed by the Insurrection of
1851 under Gen. Urrioln, slnco which time
there has leen practically no houm troubles
larger than riots.
Peru proclaimed independence In 1814
without success. A second time, in 1831, it
did better, tho war thus inaugurated last
ing three, years, and bringing as Its reward
tho sought for freedom. Tho prize proved
hardly worth tho having, as It started a
series of civil wars which continued until
1887, During this term of sixty-three years
there wero forty-seven rt'lielllous.
Doltvlu, the inland republic, was origi
nally a part of aud known as Upper Peru.
It secured Its independence In 1823, and im
mediately i hereupon liegnn civil wnr, in
tho followli.g three years there lelng not
less than fifteen popular uprisings. In
1820 there was a successful nilielllon under
Gen. Ulanco, in 1830 a counter rebellion.
Five years after occurred a hard fought
wnr. From tills time on to 1871 tho his
tory ot tho country is a record of lighting
cither at homo or abroad. Since that time
they. have turned over a new leaf, and en
gaged in only one foreign wnr and flvo in
surrections. Paraguay was born as a nation in 1811.
In 181 1 it became n dictatorship under Dr.
Frauclu, aud afterward Lopca and tho
tatter's son. It has had fewer revolutions
than any other South American common
wealth, those recorded lielng but two in
number aud of slight importance.
Costa lilca is tho best behaved of all tho
Central American republics, having hnd
but flvo Insurrections slnco it started life
Nicaragua, In tho sixty-nine jears It has
Ikhmi a free nation, has had -100 revolutions,
tho largest number ou record.
Guatemala, of the same ago as Nicara
gua, was probably deterred by tlm latter's
examp'o from going into insurrections
wholesale. Only eleven are credited to
her account In her history,
San Salvador, the smallest republic of
tho New World, is ono of tho liveliest. It
has hud 100 civil wars in Its short career,
and is now cngngol in war with Guate

Tho plans of the daring robbers hud been

carefully wrapped In a blanket.
Tho knowledge that tho news of tho rob
