This increase of the strength of regular army is saidto be t lie first step a movement to crush out the rebellion this neighborhood and in the south, and should this object be attained it may bo said that the additional burden which the people will be called upon to bear will aft all be a blessing in disguise. The second decree issued i)j8$ic president provides that persons accused of treason shall be tiled by military law, which would seem to indicate that additional repressive measures are necessary. At the same time is announced that martial law will not proclaimed so long ns the situation re mains ns tranquil as it is now. Tlie insurgents in this vicqiity now say frankly that they are fighting for their lives, and It is believed ttat it the Peixoto fleet was to make a bold swoop down from URhia aud engB(?e the iniar p Rent fleet in in at with way of the and, the of like the Mr. the i these waters the result would be a prompt and thorough victory for the government squadron.
