ARMS LAID DOW>~. Rio DE JANEIRO, March 14.—The war i» practically over and the en-use ol the insurgents is a lost one. There is much rejoicing in this city at the culmination of the struggle which has continued ho many months, with no object seemingly but to hamper business and destroy property. The rebel forces have surrendered, unconditionally, almost without firing a ahoi. The officers of tho insurgent fleet have taken refuge on board French and I'ortugueBe warships. One French vessel has put to sen -with many of the rebel oflicers on board. It is said that Admiral da Garna Is on bourd the Uritish warship Sirius. Huterod the Hiirbor, When tho fact "became known that Pa Gnma hiid offered to capitulate the govoriunc-ut fleet entered the harbor quietly. As the vessels made their way up the bay they were saluted by the various government batteries. The greatest excitement prevails in. the city. Tho streets are crowded and everywhere can be heard the cry of "Viva 1'eixoto!" For the last two days tlio streets have been packed with people, and all the available trucks and hand-carts have been busy carrying household goods and personal effects out of the city. The tram-cars have been jammed until It was learned that the struggle was over. This was most joyful news to the people, who fully expected that a battle was at hand. Terms Ilefused. The reply of President Peixoto to the terms ol surrender offered by Admiral da Gama was made known Tuesday afternoon. The president refused to accept other terms than those of an unconditional surrender of all the rebal ships and forts in and about the bay of Rio de Janeiro. At the expiration of forty-eight hours' notice given by President Peixoto tho government forts, as previously arranged, opened flro on the rebel float. The insurgents did not reply. At 13 o'clock m. Tuesday precisely the bar fortress opened flro on Fort Villegaignon. In a short time the government forces at Fort Armacao and Fort Gragota joined in the bombardment. The fire waa not returned by the insurgents. The bombardment was continued until 3 o'clock, when it ceased. Castello, San Hento, Saude, Curvello and all the city batteries theu opened a furious fire upon Fort Villegaignon and the insurgent warship Tamandre. The fire was also directed upon the insurgent works at Cobras island and at other places. The forces at Enchadas lowered the hospital flag and hoisted the 'insurgent ensign. The garrison at Oovernador island also took part in the attack on Fort Villegaignon, which was badly hammered by the government iruns, The works on Cobras island took flre, but the flames wern soon extinguished. The firing of the batteries lasted for un 'i.uur. No great damage was done. Tiu insurgents did not fire a shot, husbanding their ammunition, De Mello Prove* False.

Almost the whole population is gathered in the center of the city. Probably 100,000 persons have left the city. Railroad transportation to the suburbs is free. The government is feeding the poor. Great crowds collected on the hills with the expectation of witnessing a battle between the two forces. Fears of ^elioto's Intentions, WASHINOTON, March 14.—The crisis has been reached at Rio de Janeiro, and the two cablegrams that were received in Washington Tuesday mark the beginning of the saddest and bloodiest chapter of the long and stubbornly-contested insurrection in Brazil. The first news came from Admiral Benham in a cablegram addressed to Secretary Herbert, and read as follows: '•Bio, March li-Notioo h»s been ulven by this government that the bombardment of tho Insurgent .hlp» and forts from the city will commence at noon.

The cit, U nearly .bsndon.fl.nd ae "hTrecelpt of this dispatch gave rise to much uneasiness to the department official*, which wa* undoubtedly shared tytfc. president, ;to whom It WM com- municated. Will lie a Kuthtaw Hutchery. Monday night there was every reason to believe that a peaceful outcome had been reached in the disamrous warfare that had been waged at Rio, and uoone doubted that President Peixoto would concede the apparently reason-able and honorable terms of capitulation asked by Da Gama. The rebel admiral had offered to expatriate himself and his oflicers to become exiles in a foreign land on condition that the lives of his soldiers and sailors should be spared. Such terms are freely accorded in any honorable warfare in civilized lands, yet to the surprise of the administration they had been refused by Peixoto. lu spite of its best efforts to be exactly fair and neutral in the contest in Brazil our government, in its de«lre to protect Amcricau interests and uphold the glory of republican institutions, has given color to the belief that its. moral sympathy lay with the Peixoto government. So tlic news that the rules of civilized warfare had been disregarded uud that brave but defeated Insurgents, hemmed in on all aidt-s, lire to be refused the chance to surrender on lionor;iblo terms and forced to throw themselves upon tho mercy of the government without any guaranty of their lives falls with disagreeable force upon every official in the government hero wholms h:id to do with the trouble in any capauii-y. Will Withdraw Our Support. Undoubtedly the moral sy:n|mtl>y of the United States has been a valuable and considerable aid to the l!ni/.ilian government since 1892, when lli« first symptoms of the rebellion \vero manifested in the southern provinces, but if Peixoto is determined to maintain his present unrelenting and vindictive attitude, for such it is freely denominated by naval and diplomatic officers here, that measure of support is certain to be withdrawn from him. Dislikes Pelioto's Attltiulo. LONDON, March 14.— The Times deprecates the attitude of President Peixoto of Braz.il. 11 says that in the abstract the horror of treason can hardly be so. strong a sentiment in Peixoto as to justify a needless effusion of blood and measures for revengeful punishment directed against his defeated opponents.

LONDON-, March 14.—In the house ol commons Tuesday Mr. Henry La bouchere proposed as an amendment to the address in reply to the queen's speech the abolition of the house ol lords. After some discussion and considerable excitement the amendment was put to a vote and was passed, 147 to 145, in spite of the opposition of the government. When the fig-ures were announced they caused an outburst of prolonged cheer ing, which was renewed when the deputy speaker, read the address in re j ply to the queen's speech with Mr. Labouuherc's amendment attached to it. The division on the amendment occurred eni-linr than was expected, nnd many of the conservatives were at dinner. Tho majority was composed of seventy-three McCarthy- itcs and Parnellilcs, the remainder being radicals. The cheering which fol lowed the announcement of the result lasted fully » minute. Some of the members acted iu the most frantic manner. The waving of handkerchiefs and hats continued until the deputy speaker left the chair for a short interval. Amendment Wltllbeld. LOKDD.v, March 14.- The house of commons was crowded wi'h members and visitors when Sir William Harc»urt announced that the government had taken advice from all available sources und had decided to make the declaration that the judgment given Tuesday evening—the vote to abolish the house of lords—did not show a mature and well-considered decision of the house of common*. This was a grave question, he said, and the government would not present the address as amended to the queen. Consequently the government proposed to bring up a new address, amounting merely to an acknowledgment of the speech from the throne. Laboueher*'* Hot Talk. Henry Labouchere, the radical leader, said that the amendment to abolish tho veto power of the house of lords was not intended as a vote of want of confidence in the government, but it was intended to quicken its action in the execution of what the majority of its supporters in the country demanded. Mr. Labouchere added that the radicals were satisfied that the majority of Tuesday evening was the best they were likely to get, and therefore they would not oppose a substitute for the address. Mr. Labouchere was received with ironical cheers and laughter throughout the course of his remarks. lie said: "You U)»y withdraw this address and bring la Another, bufc tho Urst one remains ilie decision ol the bouse. We »re tbo represent- u lives of the people and tlj» government are our represenistlvrs. I do not recognize that tho government sre my misters. I always regarded Ibem as the servants of the majority of the Bouse. Whether you take the majority of the members on this side of the house or the views of tbe majorltj ot liberals outside tht house, they are. with me In tall matter and demand prompt, speedy and drastic action. Outside I he house they do not care whether you abolish or destroy tbe house of lords.''
