The Horrors of Civil War.
Extract from a privato letter to the Editor
of the New York (,'nurier tied Kiuiuirci , dated
BUENOS AYRES, Jan. 1, '53.
I have just received yours per O. Hayes,
und inn sniry to see that you write in ratio r u
coinj l.iining lone ill cnnsciiuence of my long
absence. I too um very sorry that I had not
got out of this unfnrtui.nto country a month
iigo, for now wenre in all the horrors of the
bloody ivil war. The city bus I con besieged
hy hind lor about a month, by some live or six
thousand i tit-thtoats, led by men who were,
dining the time of Hums, his most vilo instru
ments. All u; plies ni to cat nod vegetables
nro of courso cut olTl'rom outside, and the ene
my have possession of the suburbs of the city.
Yuu .am consequently iningino tho amount of
s ip' ring win 'h exists anuuigt tho poorer clas-
s. .V I bu-i:iess lias bcrn at ii stand still fir
.me time pat Custom Houses closed, and
no hii.gat ul! done. The system of warfare thus
l,u l.asbcvn the gin lilhi. Tho inside party cut
the throats of their risnners, and the outsiders
tear some apart by lying each leg to a horse,
and driving them in different directions. They
also roust suinc alive over a slow lire, and com
mit other barbarities too horrihlo to cuuincr
utc. As it was expected in the commencement
ot the affair that they would enter and sack the
city; foreigners of every nation publicly met
and armed themselves. This has probably been
tho cau.se of their not entering, but they aro
daily wreaking their veiigeanco on tho unpro
tected foreigneis outside, llow long this state
of affairs may lust, I cannot s.iy, but the proba-
1 ility is that Ilio nutsidcis ill receive reinforce

a Congress foiiucd of rcptesenliitivta from nil

Hgainst Iluenos Ay res fur tho hostility which

That each, now happiness might coin,
In trampling down dissencion's weeds !

And thou shall triumph in thy trust !

warm water upon it, suffering tho liquor tn

leached out in the woods for making crude pot

straw so as to have it puro and clear. Its spe

ter. To every gallon ofthislyo 11 lbs of mel
ted suet or whito tallow, should bo added, and
it should be kept boiling gently in a clean ket
tle for four hours. It should then be complete
ly saponified, which cun easily bo tested by im

pleasure; nml entirely approve the plan. If
it can only obtain the public, putroiiiign long
enough, mul largo enough, a nil securely
enough, to Httniii its line ends, it will run
tribute in nn emineiil degree to sive healthy
toon, tint only lo our lilernlute, but lo public
opinion. It will enable us tn possess, in A
moderate minims, a select librmv ol the
best proiluctiniiH ol thenge. Il w ill do more :
It will redeem our perindienl liieriituie from

Of nil the Peiioilirnl Journals devoted tn

to me llm most useful. It contains indeed
the exposition only of the current literature
