'that, when a buy, he was observed, by a

Perremo Rot'. October 22, 1892.
In pursuance of a call of the Democratic Committee of
Correspondence of the State, published at Harrisburg.
one lime since, suggesting the propriety of each county
electing delegates equal to their number of representatives
in the State Legislature, to meet in their respective cocn
lies in convention, and eltct delegates to meet at Harris
burg, on the Rth of Penn:try. 1843. for the purpose of
noininll lug a candidate for the Presidenev . subject to the
dee:sion of a Democratic National Convention.
The Democrats of Allegheny county are, therefore, re
quested to meet in the different wards,horoughs and town
ship., on Saturday, the sth day of November next, at their
usual places of holding their elections, nod each district
elect two delegates to meet in County Convention at the.
Court !loom, in the city of Pittsburgh,' on Wednesday,
the 9th of November, at 11 o',lock, A. M., fur the our.
nose of electing fiv't delegates to represent Allegheny
county in the Stale Convention, to he held at ttarrish
on the glorious SO of January. A nIES CRAWFORD,
chairman of the Democratic Committee of Correspond

P. S. The cities of Pittsburgh and Allegheny', Riming P,

meet at half past 7,xeclock, and the Townships between
3 and 6 o'clock, P.M. Oct 22-1119
We yesterday stated that the "Nantuck
et Caine!?' had taked a large ship into the
harbor. Several of our readers have e
vinced no little curiosity to know what
kind of "Camels" they were, whether they
are:the genuine critters, or only an ingeni
ous counterfeit of Yankee invention. The
Bay state Democrat enlightens us on the
subject—it says that the "Camels are two
large hollow vessels built of timber and
plank; made` water light, and hollowed out
on the inner faces in such a mariner that
when brought together they form a cradle
of the shape of a ship's hull. They are
rounded at the bows. to obviate the resis
tance of water, and squared at the stern.—
The outer sides are perpendicular to the
water, and the inner concave, to conform
them to the vessel, and Perm the cradle.—
Owing to the great surface presented to
the water, they are extremely buoyant, and
their brxrims being fiat, they will float in
very shallow. water.
The interior of each is divided into two
holds by means of adeck midway from the
bottom to the top, and there are sluice—
ways provided to admit the water tVhe
upper and lower holds, aitd also
worked by steam engines, to free the holds
To put them in operation, they ire aken
out into deep water; where the laden ves
sel lays, and sunk, one on each side of th e
vessel. This is done by opening the slut:
ces and-admitting the water to the holds; '
virtually scuttling them. The aides of the
cradle being thus brought beloW the
of the vessel, the Camels are brought to.

at the bottom and ends by means of heavy
chains. The bluices a r e" then closed, and
the pumps pat in operation to exhaust the .
