Bolivia. General Belzu crossed the line and entered Bolivia with a number of adventurers, and proclaimed a revolution, taking at the same time four Colonels prisoners. Three days afterwards he had an engagement with the government forces and was defeated; he retreated back to Peru, hotly pursued, and upon his arrival at Zapita, (a Peruvian village four leagues from the boundary line,) shot in the square his prisoners. The Bolivian troops arrived at Zepita and found the bodies still warm; they immediately assembled and arrested the authorities of the village and shot them, burnt several houses, and then retired back to Bolivia.
