ARGENTINE REPUBLIC.
  The Pehegsa Di Genova is a maguificent steamer of modern pattern
andhighest speed. The fleet of the old company, before it recent re-
orgranization with the Baring Brothers as its largest owners, was quite
large, but now by the addition, of the Duchessa Di Genova and the Sud
America, the Duca Di Galliera and Vittoria soon to follow, will be im-
mense.
  Soon they will touch at Lisbon, Portugal, which run they expect to
make regularly in twelve days, and thence connecting by rail, over the
continent, with-the German Lloyd at Havre. It is thought the passage
to the United States may be made in twenty-two or twenty-three days.
  This movement seems to be quite an emphatic rebuke to the tardy
neglect of United States enterprise.
  Even the Argentine Republic, only one-twentieth part as large as
our country in population, will soon launch a monthly line of steam-
ers from Buenos Ayres to New York, carrying its heroic little flag,
in fulfillment of a commercial need, long existing, but hitherto slighted
by our great metropolis.

     Buenos Ayres, December 12, 1887. (Received January 17, 1888.)
   Sim: I have the honor to inclose you herewith, inclosure presenting
 report of a sanitary convention recently signed by the Argentine, Bra-,
 zilian, and Uruguayan commissioners, relating to the question of quar-
 antine along the South American shores.
   Difficulties and delays growing out of this situation have proved to
 be a sore question to the mail service and trade affairs generally.
 Hopes are entertained there may now be a general improvement in the
 matter and som.-e relief obtained from many embarrassments.
   The stipulations are given iafull, as published by the commissioners
 themselves.

   The contracting countries agree in declaring that: Exotic pestilential
diseases are
 yellow fever, cholera morbus, and the Eastern plague; an infected port is
one in
 which either of the said diseases exists as an epidemic; a suspicious port
is one in
 which isolated cases of either of said diseases are occurring, or one which
is in easy
 and frequent communication with or is not sufficiently protected against
infected
 ports. An infected ship is one in which a case of pestilential disease has
occurred';
 asuspicious ship is one which, proceeding from an infected or suspicious
port., has
