.llUID PBWABinoMS TO ATTACK HUMAITAt
The Allifs have concantratcd their forces at
Corrientes, near the boundary of Paraguay, and
whence torccs can be eiit up either the Para
guay river or the Parana. " Recently tha Bra
zilians have been incroaa'mjr their forces, so that
the Allws must now have assembled forty-flve
thousand men. By asreement President Ucne
ral Mitre is Commander-in-Chief while the Allies
occupy the Aremtine territory. It is said that
by the end ol January matters in preparations
-will be read; (or an attack on Fortress IlumaiU.
Thl plnce lias lately been much strengthened.
About two hundred euns are in position, chains
are placed across the river, and torpedoes are
planted near it. President Mitre Intends to
attack thla fort simultaneously by land and
water.
TUB PARAGUAYAN DISPENSES.
Across the river Parana there are two ferries,
or fords, whcie the banks of the river are prac
ticable lor tsams. These are Paso da Patria
and Peso do los Bur-yes. At tha former the
Paraguayant are stronely fortifying and prepar
ing well to dlBpiite the pass. As the other pa
is unfortified it is likely that PrcsieVnt Mitre will
eboose this ona whun he is ready, lie has
ordered the preparation of three hundred canoes,
to hold twenty men each, for crossing. By such
leans the Paraguayans often come over at night
nd steal cattle and reconnoitre.
General Flore?, of Urnpuay, is guarding the
Paso da Patila with Brazilian troops; Ocneral
Caceres, ot Cornentes, is at the city or Corrien
tes, commanding Argentines: General Panucro
is witn the commander-in-chief, two and a half
leagues from the city of Corrientes.
PARAGUAYAN ATTACK aMJPTJLBED.
The most Impovtunt piece of news by this
steamer is that the Paraguayans have again
crossed over at the Paso da i'utria and attacked
the cavalry stationed there tinier command of
Genetnl Caceres. The enemy at tirst numbered
one thousand men, but havm;.- beon reinforced
by five hundred more, compris'ini; artillery and
cavalry, they attacked Caceres' brave followers,
but were driven back in disorder to the moun
tains which abound in that section.
A REION Of TE r.KOR IN PARAQUAT.
The last conscription of Paraquay had added
to many old men and bojs to the army pa to in
duce the belief that, as to men, Lopez is limited.
Several prisoners", Ion? incarcerated, have died,
it is said, of poison. Many women are held in
prison for political oflenses, such as expressing
opinions averse to the Paraguayan Government.
In bliort, Lopez has instituted a reign of terror
that is too severe to last long.
GENERAL TJBUIZA'S FORCES,
of Entre Eios, have a?ain dispersed in largs
numoers. General Mitre has written to him to
send on to boadquartcr all the troops ready for
the field, and4o punish the delinquents. Already
large numbers of officers and men are applying
to General Urquiza for pardons. Nina have
already beea shot for mutiny er desertion.
General Urquiza Is etttctually biding the Allies
by his viRor and discipline. At the outset Para
guay ottered htm great inducements to join
Lopez; bur he declined, wisely as well as patri
otically. Ills opposition to the Allies would
have prolonged the struggle through yeirs.
SCARCITY OP PROVISIONS AMONQ THE ALLIES.
The fact that tho Paraguayans, in their one
hundred and ninety-two days' invasion, swept
away every cow and sheep In Corrientes, makes
supplies of meat tor the army scarce and aear,
A few days ago I saw eix very splendidly got up
ambulances rtadv for the Army, labelled in large
letters, "Argentine Sanitary CommiFsion." A
recent fair lor that society here the first of the
kind ever held yielded $20,000 in silver.
The Allied fleet is maio up chiefly of Brazilian
vessels. Four or five of the sixteen vessels are
Argentine. TJraguuy has none at present; but
she has just bought three fine gunboats fioiu the
United States, wkleb, under the South American
Barnes of Yatay, Vigilante, and Uruguay, will
soon )o in the fleet. Tho Brazilian iron-clad
2'amandare has succeeded in getting above Cor
rientes. She is greatly relied on in the pro
jected assault on Humaita. The Brazilian
monitor is also there.
A Brazilian steam transport was wrecked last
week on the Iuo Grande coast, while conveying
troops to the seat qt war. There were on board
650 men, ot Mhom two officers and five soldiers
perished.
As to the state of ffeling here, no one ex
presses any doubt as to the issue. Lopez must
fall, and soon. Every confidence is expressed
in our chief officers; thus far they have steadily
progressed towards the subluxation of tho Pa
raguayan horde. The discipline of the army is
stricter than ever was known amoug Argentina
troops, and they fieht with great bravery and
dcttf iniiiatiori. j-he national paper currency is
constantly increasing in value. Both bonds and
buck issues nave advanced about ten per cent,
since' tlie'war begun. The only excitine politi
cal question is not war or no war, but the re
moval 01 tne national capital irom iiuenos
Avres.
It is expected that Chili wilt make demands
on this Government, as she did on Uruguay, for
sending out privateers ana estaousning prize
courts; and under tlrs impression vesterdav

In some parts of the country the crrasshonnerg
are stripping the fields of all irreen vegetation.
leaving the peach stones hanging on the leafless
tiees, und drinking the streams drv. Several
serious Indian invas'ons have occurred some
of them within one hundred miles of Buenos
Ayics. They are bolder than for years, knowing
that our soldiers ar3 away at the war. Tho
-wheat harvest has been Gathered: it is the iosl
extensive ant productive ever known hero. Of
wool, lour ana a hull trillions ot pounds nave
been brought to this market. The price Is going
down, us there is but iiitle comnetition. The in
crease of theep this year is set down at ten mil
lions of animals. From the San Juan silver
mines eight and a hull tons ot tilver have arrived.

Montevideo. I send vou the latest news.
Two of the seven Brazilian transports aerotiQd
in the Parana river ai cealn floating. That
river is covered with Biuntl cralt, in the rivr
trade, carrying trom one to twenty tons, nearly
all under foreign flags, chiefly ilaltan. They
are generally manned by iheir owuers,.who are
mostly umible to, read or write, and they are
skilful smuggler. They demand nil the reaped
for iheir liiig that is due to an East Iudiainan.
It is a wonder that the system docs not oecasion
ceaseless European wars.
LOPEZ IN A TICHT PLACE.
No warlike movements have occurred, except
that the allies are coucontrutincr. uud preparing
for an Invasion of I anigcay. There ure rumors
of peace; but the allies ure pledged to accept no
other conditions tiiau the expulsion f Ljpez
from South Aiuenca, and the division of tho
spoils.
Provisions ere bo scarce in Corrientes that
cattle ure bought m Kntro Rio in pr-ei num
bers. and driven over to th titrav. Tho result
is that the pries of caltlo havo advanced so
mueh as to almost suspend the annual killing
iur iuo uiues, uuiiri, mm tuiiow.
Such large reinforcements are comlncr from
, Brazil that the allies ure believed to have iiit
thousand men within a day's march of the
passes ot mo rurana.
EIGIITT THOUSAND BRAZILIANS IN in! FIELD
A good authority b re estimates the Brazilian
forces under arms in the allied service ou the
frontier at eighty thousand men. Ten thousand
men have atrived at Montovldoo during thelmt
two months en route to Comentes. Within the
last thtce days sixteen hundred more have
arrived. Eighteen hundred are on the way, and
four thousand two hundred are waiting lor
transports to bring them to the river Plate. I
cannot believe that all the designs of Brazil have
jet appeared on the surface.
The utmost activity prevails in the province of
Entre Bios. General Urquiza is gathering
troops with great industry for tho allied camp.
AnoTdcrhas been isRucd shutting up all tho
grog shops ol the "rural districts'' ol that pro
vince. The same is proposed In this pro
vince. Thus we shall have the "Maine law,"
and without a single temperance society in the
country. ... ,
Later advices contradict the report of ian
French war steamer Decldce bringing gold from
Paraguay for Lcpez or any one else.
The news by the French steamer yesterday has
slightly raited the price of fine wools. During
the month of December 17,683 bales of wool
and 48t! bags havo been shipped. Aboui half of
the whole amount went to the .United States.
Immense quantities of new' wheat begin to
strive.
The old blockade-runners Aqnes, Arkle, and
Lelia Bei have been scld to the Brazilian Steam
Packet Company.
The heat here 1s unprecedented, reaching for
come days one hundred and two and one hun
