Argentine Revolution.

[per press association J

London, July 29,

Telegrams received m Paris arinouce the renewal of the armistice at Buenos Ayi-es, and that the formation of a conciliation Cabinet is probable. The Argentine legation m London reports that the revolt is 'subdued. Private telegrams also state that a settlement is probable, but latest news asserts that no compromise has been arrived at, and that the quarrel must be fought out to the bitter* end. There is also a report that a. plebiscite is to be taken for the election of President, and.that, the candidates will be Celman, General Mitre (late President), and Ribero (leader of the radical faction). . . Another version is that the insurgents have surrendei'ed the arsenal, fleet, and arms, and the troops have Returned to their allegiance j that the superior officers of the army have been dismissed, and the forces modified; that members of the Government are returning from the provinces to the capital, and that the whole country is quiet. ■ * Buenos Ayrtss, 'July 30: Celman armed a hundred guachos and ordered, the squadron to. cease firing, which they obeyed. ' The indignation of the troops and armed . citizens was terrible.. After firing a volley at haphazard m blind, fury,'the rebels consented to disarm. The condition and prospects of the city ars pitiable, and murderous out-

breaks are dreaded. When Celman appeared m the streets the hired guachos cheered, but the citizens -remained silent. The squadron shelled the Custom House and Government House, compelling the President to evacuate the positions taken up there. Desultory rifle lire was kept up until the afternoon, but when victory was almost assured the insurgents found their cartridges were exhausted. Only a hundred thousand rounds had.' been provided, instead of a million as supposed. Rebels wanted to attack with the bayonet, but their leaders prevented them at the risk of their own lives. Celman, when he appeared m the streets, was deadly pale.
