President Ramon Castilla finally puts down a sporadic series of local revolts led by his rival General Agostino Vivanco. These disturbances had broken out in December, 1856, and had smoldered on since then. Following this, Peru will enjoy more than two decades of political and civil peace. (By John Osborne)
