Limx,Nov. |s,^The latest advice* from^Kiojanerio. dated November KUh, Mi p.^in., sre to the effect that the Province of^Buhia is opposed to the revolution. Via-^OOBBt Ouro I'reto, ex-minister of the inter^^ior, and Senor Muicuuck. a banker, have^been arrested. The emperor is looked on^with suspicion. The provisional govern^^ment has abolished monarchy. The revo^^lutionary commission lias addressed a mes^^sage to the emperor, telling him to leave the^country in tweuty-fonr hours. The em^^peror acknowledged this, and leaves by^packet Al.xgoas, accompanied by an iron^^clad. The Krarilian government will give^the emperor n certain amount to live in^Europe. |b^ republic is a certainty and^great enthusiasm prevails.
'Ihe Paris corrcsis indent of the Daily^News says: The republican council at Kio^Janeiro decided a few mouths ago thai the^anniversary of the French revolution whs^the most propitious occasion on which to^proclaim I he republic. The leaders of the^party were so confident of success that tbey^mdered a number of republican flags to be^made In this city. In the new flag the^crown is replaced by a Phrygian cap.^Among the canses that led to the revolution^were the tyrannical means to which the gov^^ernment resorted in order to secure the re^^turn of its supporters at the last election.
Notifiedof Ilia Ileparture.
London.Nov. is.^A dispatch from Km^Janeiro says Dorn Pedro has departed from^Hrazil. He sailed direct to Lisbon. Kefore^bis departure he was formally notified of^his deposition. At the same tune he was in^formed that the civil list would be contin^^ued. The province of Kalna opposes the re^public, but most of file other pro\ inn -s have^signified ther adherence to the new regime.^Dr. Harlios.i, the new minister nf linanee^announces thai all contracts cut. i i into by^the im|^eriul government will be in untamed.^I hi overthrow of monarchy 0m ' lOPWltUy^paralyzed business. The fo,.u,r prime^minister has been ordered t . leave the^country.
ABrazilian, thoroughly conversant with^the affairs of oil country ami ^.^^ I ^|ualilied^to speak with regard to the aitoatioa in^Krazil, said tliis evening: ^I believe that^the inoveineiit has occur red and that the^capital is in the hands of the insurgents,^but I do not believe that the new govern^^ment has oome to stay. We need more^information about the personnel of the^newly proclaimed government to believe in^its parmaiiem-y. 1 think it is a militaiy^movement supported by a few thousand^civilians, and tVit when the provinces are^In ard from a I^ ^. , ion will lake place. The^name * of those announced as at tile head^of affairs are all n publicans, ami they are^not nu n of high standing. The ministry is^mostly composed of lawyers and men of the^press. I do not believe that they will have^the confidence of the people.
Dispatchesn-eeivi d In re this afternoon^from Km Janeiro reiterate the statement^that the proclamation of the republic met^Willi no oppootton, TOO latest intelligence^received from Kio Janeiro indicated that^liasia and l'eruambuea were in a state of^revolution. The piKiple everywhere are so^much absorbed in the new order of thing-i.^politically sp akmg, that business is at a^complete standstill. There is said to be^considerable mystery at Itio Janeiro in re^^gard to the departure of theeui|i^^ror and his^family. It is asserted ill some quarters that^he has not yet left the country, the British^mail steamer Atrate, from Montevideo for^Southampton, is due at Kto to-morrow, and^some believe the imperial party will take^passage u|siti that steamer for^Barope. Commercial dispatches Hre^forwarded from Brazil to foreign Countries^without delay. All dis|iatche*, however,^relating to the political situation, or giving^any information regarding the new govern^^ment, have to be submitted to the censor.^The rt suit of this is that the only mtolH^gence about the revolution which has^reached the outside world, eicept the very^meagre facts that linve got through in com^^mercial telegrams in cipher, is that which^has met the disapproval of the government.^A dispatch has been received at the Bra^^zilian legation here in ljondon from Dr.^Barboa. saying the minister of finance of^the new ^overturn nt directed the Brazilian^minister to notify the 1/oudon Sha-k Kx-^chaiiL'e that all financial engagement* en^^tered into bv the imperial government will^be faithfully observed by the republic.
1In OwVI ^l Washington.
Washinoion,Nov IS.^Secretary Blaine^i* in receipt of a telegram from Km Janeiro^confirming the press dispatch report, which^*ay* in substance that the army and navv^were on the Hide of the insurgents, that a^provisional government had been formed:^and that the emperor was a prisoner in his^palace.
Amemlwr of the Brazilian legation, re^^ferring to the matter, said: ^The popular^movement is not in favor of a republic, and^it will not spring up in a night, and without^any warning. The l ist elections show that^the republican party returned only two^members Hnd thia elections were f^ir and^open. That dis's not snow any sentiment^f ivoring a lepublic. The insurgents have^captured (he capital, the head of the natiou^and the army and navy are with them.^They control all mean* of communication.^Tl.i re is undoubtedly a consorship of the^cable service. I would hke to^Lear what the other Hide la^doing and soincthing from the^pioi ma s. If you were an American in Kio^and heard that by a sudden movement the^garrison and some of the citizens had s- ized^the departments and imprisoned the presi^^dent and cabinet and set up a government,^von would want to know what Virginia.^New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio and otter^states were doing bi fore lieing convinced^timt the new government would lust. I^believe the movement is a military one, and
isnot sup|airted by more then a thousand^civilians.
'Itwould be easy for the army Hiid navv,^by surprise, when the officers of the i-ovi i n-^nient are peacefully and quietly attending^to their business, to capture the city of Rio,^secure through the navy control of outside^ommunicritions and imprison the em-^p^ r ^r.
But.^was suggested, ^if the people are^favorable to the emperor, how can the in^^surgents maintain controlf
that,^ was the reply, ^is just what it^lacking, and I expect to hear the provinces^have rallied to the emperor's sumiort. Al^^though he is imprisoned lie is hIiII emperor^and the provinces can declare for htm. 1^think the provinces will declare war against^the capital, and the situation will resemble^that in France at the time of the Paris com^^mune. There are in the navy about^officers and sailors, not all of whom are in^Bio. Many are abroad. The army has^alaiut the same strength, and, with about^ft,*aX^ civilian* upholding them, it would^make ltl.UK) men only, and 1 do not la-lieve^the movement has greater strength.
Itis true the dispatches suy Home of the^provinces have declared for a republic, but^these nil come from Kio, and those who^have seized the central government. We^have not got the other side, knowing the^country as 1 do, I do not think the provin^^ces have so declared. The republican^party throughout the empire is orgauized^into small chilis and their members would^of course send in their felicitations to the^general government. There are also small^garrisons of fifty or more men in various j^provinces, and these have sent their con^^gratulations. This. 1 think, is the founds^Hon for the statement in regard to the ;^provinces. 1 cannot believe ill the pcrma- |^Hence of the republic until We get more^information and something from the other^side.
(Ifthe new cabinet, the ineinbt r* are^pffacip illy journalists. The president. Hod^ero Da Fonsca. and Minister of War Ben^^jamin Constant are soldiers.and the remain^^ing three members are lawyers. Senator^IJriintua Iiocayura, is looked U|hhi here as ^^|^erh.i|is the leader in the revolutionary^movement. Be is editor of La Pais, pub^^lished in Kio de Janeiro, is a republican of^long standing, and has earnestly hdaired^for the creation of a republic. Benjamin^Constant, minister of war, has heretofore^been a professor in the Polytechnic school^and a uieuila r of the tsiard of military^engineers.
Amongnavy officers no surprise was ex^^pressed at the news of the revolution. I Ine^officer said that twenty years ago. when he^was in Brazil, there was a general feeling^that when Dom Pedro's reign ended a^republican form of government would be in^^stituted. Lieutenant Barry who recently^returned from Brazil, saystlieehance which^has come to pass was o|ienly talked of^unning Brazilians as probable to is cur. and^e* peel, d^ it any time, and to tliciMople of^Brazil it could not apis-nr to have lueii mid^^den.
Iti* apparent that the Brazilian officials^here have become finally convinced that the^emperor has lueii overthrown. lucotivtr^sat ion to-day a prominent citizen of Brazil^said he was convinced the men who lead the^revolution could not ret dn their leadership.^They are unknown to fame and without fol^^lowers in their own country. There were^two sources open to the revolutionists:^They might perceive tlnir own viakiiesi^and call a convention which would tiring to^^gether really the representative men of the^country, anil this convention would natur^^ally consider the problem of providing a^satisfactory form of government and set^^tle the question n^ to whether Brazil is yet^ready for a republic, or whether the imperial^family had better lie recalled. If the pies^cut leaders refused to adopt this course,^then they would be obliged to assume more^and more arbitrarily the direction of affairs^and the result would be a dictatorship.
