TEE LUZERNE DEMOCRACY ON TEE
It appears that the Democracy of Luzerne
wish to disfranchise our gallant volunteers. Be
cause these Men who are now in arms against
southern rebellion voted for the Union ticket
against thepartizanDemocnta of the Hakes and
Chase school; the followers of these latter would
throw out their votes, or enough of them, at
eleet'the Demoemtic ticket.
The Return Judges, who met on Tuesday
week at Wilkes-Ware, had quite a time.. They
limply adjourned by making out two sets of
certificates—those by the Democrats rejecting the
Army vote—those by the Republicans receiving
it. In alluding to it the . Pittston Gazette ob

Lamm county in this year of our Lord, A.D.

Mr . .. Anderson has resided for some years in
Oincinnatti, where he stood deservedly high as '
a member of the bar, and where he is univer
beloved for his numerous virtues and his
fine wail qualities. Shortly before the break

fession and removed to Texas, where he pur
chased a large tract of land and started a sheep

sed the ordinance of secession, Mr. Anderson
disposed of his farm with the intention of re
turning to Cincinnatti, but he was Stopped on
the way and Put in prison, his Union sentiments
being well known. Mr. Anderson was a promi

PENNSYLVANIA RAILROAD IMPROVE
HENTS-LILVENSE GRAIN DEPOT.
The Pennsylvania Railroad Company is now
engaged in constructing a new grain elevator
on the Delaware, at Philadelphia. The work is
progressing rapidly, and all the iron columns
which are to support the bins have been put
up. Great care has been required in preparing
the foundations to support the enormous weight
which the building will have to sustain. Piles
have been driven into the ground about twenty
flve feet and cut off smooth about six feet below
the surface. On these piles rest large blocks of
granite, which support the iron columns on
which rest the building and the immense iron
bins. The sides of the building are being filled
with brick work of an ornamental style, and
when entirely will be a fine specimen
of architectare.' The lot has a front of 170 feet
on Washington avenue and 120 feet on Swanson
street, and the'building will be' sufficiently ca
pacious to store 475,000 bnshels of grain, and
when increased to the size that it is anticipated
theinisiness will require, it will hold 750,000
The railroad tracks are laid so as to allow
the cars to . pass into the building,.and- the grain
is taken from theni and placid faliuge hoppers,
from whence it passes on an endless' bind to a
large pit in the bottom of the tower ; and from
here the grain is carried up by a series of buck
ets to a point about half way rip thotituver; and ,
from thence through hoppers, -where the grain
is screened, measured, and •weighed, to a pit,
connected with a series of ' buekets, which don
vey it to the top of thetower. fetal this point
it is, distributed to the various bins. The main
bins are 111. feet in diameter, and averaging 45
feet high, oonetructed•cint Of boiler iron, being'
circular in forte. niffSpaces tame& thiiie bins
are also to be used for storing grain. There are
in all 90 circular 'bins, and 72 of the snuffler
bins. The large ones are calculated' to hold
about 4,600 bushels each. The hottOns of these
bins are abont'ls feet above the railroad tracks.
In conveying the'grain from the elevator to Ves
sels in the docks ifoiageide - Of the new;wharf, it.
is drawn out , through: a, valve, and falhi on a'
small conveyor, carrying it into another pit in
the tower, from whence it is elevated into a
large hopper. From here it passes through an
iron c7linder about 2.}- feet in diameter, pro
-pelled by a screw into distributing hoppers,
from which it is conveyed through spbutifiginto
the hold of the vessels. The full capacity of
the. elevator for moving -grain, miry be estima
ted at 5,000 bushels per hour, in whichtiine 16
eight wheeled cars, each holding 800 buithels,
can be readily unloaded and the grain'stored in
the bins. There will be an engine of• 40 home
power on the eastern side of the main building,
to move the machinery. -

British steamer Trent, brought her to and re

their Secretaries, is now about fifty-six years of

Sailing of the Stone Fleet.--Thirty
Vessels to be Sunk in Southern
Correspondence of the Evening Poet.]
NEW Losnok; Ct:„Nov. 20, 1861.
The stone fleet, not, however, with pomp or
banners, sailed to-day. Twelve or fifteen vessels
departed from this port, all bound smith and all
laden with stone. The crafts were old whalers,
:ome of them of the largest size, but a hard
looking set. They have spent their lives nudg
ing the icebergs, and have been industrious in
their vocation of seeking material to illuminate
the world and to make life tolerable at night to
those who slep,t not. An immense quantity of
midnight oil MtVe - theygathered in their day.
They go uow to illubtrate the ideas of com
merce which prevail in the darker portion, girt
with sandbars, of our disturbed •republic. A
screw is fixed in their bottom which can be
worked from the deck. When it is screwed out,
the water, in a stream as big as a, .man's leg,
mimes in, and the vessel is sunk. The stone
anchors it at the bottom.
Our fleet is to be joined 'outside by a like one
from New Bedford, which will make the whole
number of the vessels about thirty. Six thous
and dollars each have been paid by the govern
ment for some of the best of these vessels.
The fleet will be under the command of an
old sea-dog, of whaling propensities, who has
been appointed commodore.
Gen. Jim. Lane on Slavery.
In a speech made at Camp Springfield, Mis
souri, Gen, Jim Lane, than whom no man is
more feared and hated by Border Ruffians and
Rebels, declared in reference to Slavery—the
Pandora box from which has issued most of our
national troubles—as follows :
"My creed is, Le Slavery take care of itself. If
it can survive the shock of war, let it live, but
if between an upper and nether millstone it be
ground to powder, and the winds drive itaway,
it is not for me to gather up the dust again. I
do not propose to make war upon slavery, but
upon Rebels, and in the meantime to let slaves
and slavery take care of themselves. An oli-
garchy more cruel and proscriptive than ever
scourged and cursed a nation, ancient or mod
ern, has brought on this war for slavery ; and
it we are required to protect, or in any way
help Slavery, then we'are required to co-operate
with the enemy, to help him ' to defend him,
and work for the same end. Can we place our
selves thus in an gliallo3 with our deadly and
barbarous foes, and at the Serail time conquer
them, subdue them, crush them ? When lesser
contradictions are reconciled, we will think of
Comment is unnecessary. The Federal Army
marches to crush out rebellion and troika and
let slavery take care of itself.
&MID CANNON Pon Trin WAIL —Three field
batteries of Wiard's steel rifled cannon, com
prising eighteen pieces (six 12-pounders and
twelve 6-pounders) with forty-two carriages,
including cakoina, battery wagons lad ;forges,
have recently been completed in New York for
the War Department, and two of the batteries
have been sent into the service. These i bsteriea
are apparently of the finest descriptiOn.
The gun-carriages are in some respects pecu
liar. A principal feature in their construction
is the extraordinary elevation which may be
given to the guns. For, ordinary smooth bored
ordnance fifteen degrees are allowed, and for
rifled pieces twelve are , deemed sufficient, and
the carriages are made accordingly ; but in the
case of these batteries an elevation 'of thirty
five degrees is provided for, thns adapting them
for all or nearly all the - purposes of shelling.
Another peculiarity consists if/ the arse of iron
flanges in the construction of the nave or "hub"
of the carriage wheels. The flanges grasp the
spokes or arms diverging from the nave, and
may be tightened as the wood shrinks with age
or wear. Between the spokes at the base are
vredges properly secured, which may ' , also be
An agent of the State of Ohio has ordered
similar 'carriages for four batterksof Wiard's
cannon, with the understanding that the num
ber may be increased to ten batteries...

STEAMERS RUNNING THE REBEL BLOCKADE
New Rebel Battery at Possum Nose
WABmIIGTON, Nov. 22
While some gentlemen of distinction are de
sirous that Gen. Meigs shall take the field, it is
known that the Government, appreciating his
eminent qualifications for the discharge of the
extensive and very important labors devolved
on him, is not inclined to transfer him from the
Quartermaster General's Department to the
performance of other public duties.
Much sFeculation continues to be indulged in
relation to the Mason and Slidell question. So
far as can be ascertained the Minister of her
Britannic Majesty's Government has taken no
abtion whatever upon the subject, but will
probably await instructions.. Nor has there
been even an informal conversation between
him and.the proper depirtment concerning it.
Those who are intimately acquainted with Lord
Lyons believe that in tikes in other matters
he has observed his usual discretion in retrain
ing from premature expressions of opinion.
The Wyandank ran the blockade last night
and reached Indian Head about moonrise, and
the navy-yard this morning.
The steamer E. B. Hall also ran the blockade
downward last night, having on board a large
quant.ty of ammunition and ordnance stores
Two schooners loaded with wood ran the
