Tboro Officially,
Rome, Sept 13.?The Italinn governmeet
has received a dispatch from Hie
da Janlero, Brazil, dated yesterday,
saying that Admiral Demalles has in.
formed the representatives of the for.
sign powers at Bio that the vessels ol
tbo insurgents' squadron would open
fire upon the citv's defences after (I

(oris in the bay will first bo attacked
sopnrately, it is believed, and upon the
result of this bombardment the future
movements of the rebels will be decided.
In consequence of this announcement
arrangements have been mado to remove
the foreign war shipB and the
merchant vessels at Bio to positions
outside the line of fire. A British gunboat
was to leave the bay of Bio de
Janiero at an early hour this morning
in order to warn all incoming vessels to
stay oft the cost until the fate of Bio da
Janiero is decided.
Uuch anxiety is expressed in Bio De
Janiero as to the fate of the city in the
event of the success of the rebels, for,
in apito ot the diapstchei sent oat by
tho Brazilian government, doubts aro
expressed as to the loyalty of the forts
at Villa Caigen and other placos in the
bay. It ia asserted that the Harrisons
of the bay forte will at tho exchange of
a fo<v shots haul down their flag and
join Issue with the rebels. The government,
however, Beems to be confident
that tho garrisons of tho forts are loyal,
una mac ine troops in mo city proper
in any cage will support tho preaont
authorities, even if the forts surrender.
The successful manner in which government
police and troops repulsed the
previous attacks upon Nioth Erov is
cited as evidence that the rebels will
meet with a warm reception on all sides.
That tho rebels have a large number
of sympathizers in Itio de Janeiro is a
fact admitted even by the government,
for they givo that as the excuse for suspending
telegraphic communication. If
further evidence of the government's
unfortunate position and distrust of
everybody and everything was needed,
it is furnished in the scrutiny of private
letters and all dispatches by the government
officials. To such an extent is
this spying carried on that all mall
from suspected persons Is opened, read
and destroyed if the government thinks
it advisable to do so.
President Peixoto's government has
scouting parties and troops all around
the shores of the bay, which is seventeen
miles long and eleven miles in oxtreme
width. The entrance of the bay,
however, is only about one and a quarter
miles wide, which is two miles south
of Rio. The entrance to the bay is said
to he planted with torpedoes, and the
failure ot the rebel squadron to put to
soa and make lor Santos is attributed to
the fear they had of exposing themselves
to the fire of the fprts, and in
addition, to steaming over the torpedoes
placed at the entrance of tho bay for
their edification.
This torpedo-strewn entrance, or narrows,
is guarded on the east by Fort
Santa Cruz, and on the west by a fort
situated on Sugar Loaf Rock. Admiral
De Mellos is said to havo invited the
garrisons of those forts to join cause
with the rebels, but, as reported, he has
met with a refusal. This story, it should
be added, alio oame from the government
source. Further news from Rio
de Janeiro is anxiously awaited here.
A Description of the City Throftteood bj
the Rebel Fleet.
Rio de Janeiro consists of an old and
a new town, the Utter being separated
from the former by an open space,
called the Gampo do Hours. A range
of mountains deprives the city of the
benefit of a land breeze. It is, therefore,
exposed to sufiocatiug heat, relieved
only by the sea broezo In the
middle of the day.
There are upward of fifty churches,
plain In oxterior, but riehly deoorated
within. Tho chief public edifices aro
the former Imperial palace, the naval
and military arsenal, a public hospital
and a lunatic asylum. The aducatlonal
establishments are the college of Sao
Joie, an academy of flue arts, a cadet
school, schools of medicine and surgery,
military and naval academy, nnd many
public schools. The national library
contains 120,000 volumes.
From Its position Rio is naturally the
"eat mart of Braill, and especially of
the states of Minas-Oeraes, Sao Paulo,
ana uovar, ana iu natural aavantages ?
are iuch aa to attract an Immense com- Be
merce. Ita port it largo and deep, and G,'
is defended by a castle. Several Unei ?
of railway! connect tbe city with the Hl
' conntrv surrounding. The bay or inlet .
of Rio lsseventeen miles long and eleven ~
in extreme width, forming one of the Mid
noblest harbors in tbe world. Its en- sotn
trance, two miles soalh of the city, is q '
one and one-half miles wide between ply
Fort Santa Zrtu on the east and a fort Sj.
on Sugar Loaf Rock on the west. Tbe 0[
bay contains many small islands. The thai
population of Rio was 40S,058at the cen- jn?
bus of 1888. jn ?

amendment to tbe pending bill for tbe

act The amendment will not
deviate from the lines indicated by Mr.
Faulkner in (lis speech of last week,
but will contain some details providing
for the execution of the provisions of
the amendment if it shonld become a
law. Discussing the proposed amendment
to-day, Mr. Faulkner said bo
bad not yet canvassed the senate
upon the amendment, and was
not, therefore, prepared to say ,
whether it wonld command a sufficient
vote-tasecure its acceptance. He bos,
however, received many assurances of
good will towards the principles sug?ested
by the amendment from mem- '
era who express their willingness to
1 support it in case they find it satisfac- :
tory in detail. It is believed witb the
' best reason that the great bulk of the
silver advocates, if not all of them, Republicans
and Democrats alike, will
support the measure when they find it
is impossible to get anything more '
favorable to them, and there are known
to be quite a sprlnklingof repeal advocates
representing the more corservative
element of that side who will
probably cast their votes for ah amendment
giving silver the limited recogni- '
tion proposed by tbe amendment
On tbe other hand it is definitely '
known also that tbe influence of tbe actministration
will be exerted in opposi- 1
tion to this, as to all other compromises. f

a canvass of the senate and possibly by '

times heretofore songht to secure a
day on which to address the senate, ]
asked unanimous consent that he have

Mr. Hoar (Sep., Mass.) objected and
Mr. Mills withdrew the request. The 1
presiding officer inquired whether the :
senator from Texas gave notice that be 1
would address the senate on Tuesday, i
unanimous consent being objected to. >
Mr. Mills said he had given notice be
fore and had the floor taken away from 1
him by senatorial courtesy, and he did 1
not wish to have that senatorial courtesy 1
extended to him again.
The senator from Toxas was assured
that there was no probability that the
floor would be taken from him if he
gave such a notice, and he, thereupon,
said he would address the senate on
Tuesday next at 2 o'clock.

Washington, D. 0., Sept 13.?Th
administration has altered its determ
nntion with reference to the Everel
bill extending the time limit allowe
under the Geary set lor Chinese t
register, to September 1, 1894. Lai
night at a conference held at the resi
dence of Secretary Carlisle at which, f
addition to the secretary of the treat
ury, thore were present Secretary Grei
bam, Attorney General Olney an
Representative Geary, oI California.
Xho members of the administrate
sxpressed the opinion that the bli
ought to be pushed through both hoose
it once, and Intention was manifoate
at Insisting upon going ahead with th
bill in the house. Mr. Geary, howevei
pointed out the radical defects of th
bill drawn, it is understood, by Assisl
ant Secretary Quincy, which wouli
render its effects negatory. H
alio declared that the exten
lion of the time of registratio
should be reduced to six months: the
the term "Chinese laborer" should b
ipeciflcally defined and that the wants
i provision inserted lor photographin
ill Chinese who registered. It was final
v decided to agree to these modifici
Ions and accordingly to-day the bl
iras referred by the foreign afiairs con
nittee to subcommittee that wil( met
omorrow night.
To-day it developed that Mr. Oleve
and himself la not anxiooa to pres
he bill for fear tbat it will complicat
natters in the senate.
In fact, he ia In favor of the hom
biding Its hands and doing nothin
tntii the senate votes on the Sherma
repeal bill. This has been appareo
or several days with reference to th
rucker bill repealing the existing fee
iral election laws.
Mr. Cleveland urged upon a prom
lent hoase Democrat the expediency o
nactlon in the house. The Presides
s sanguine of favorable action on th
epeat bill in the senate if the attet
ion of the country can be foensse
here. He thinks the Tucker bill woul
irouse partisan rancor and possibly dii
astrously affect the figbt In the senate
and he also believes that Immedlat
fiction on tho Chinese matter in th
house by throwing a now bone of con
tention in the senate would be prejc
iicial to the eflort to secure the repea
si the Sherman law.
