GOYANNA, a city of Brazil, in the province of Pernam- buco, on a river of its own name, about 10 miles from the sea. It is a well-built place, and carries on a trade in cotton, sugar, rum, hides, timber, dye-stuffs, oils, and other pro ducts of the fertile region in which it lies. Most of its exports are sent to Recife for shipmont, its own port being only deep enough for the larger class of coasting vessels. The population is about 12,000.
