The Camels. \
Two lots of Osmele have been proenred from the
East, and are now in Texas. The first lot was ob
tained in 1865—'6, through the agency of Major
Henry C. Wayne, Of the "D. 8. Army, nnder the
direction of the War Department. Thirty three
animals were obtained at Tunis. Cairo, and Smyrna
—a part of tbern gifts from the local authorities.
The sum expended in seonring them was about
eight thousand dollars.
Major Wayne says he isi-atisfied that Americans
will be able to manage camels nut only as well, bat
better than Arabs, as they will do it with more
humanity and far greater intelligence. The camels
obtained by Majar Wayne were landed at India-
nola, Texas, on the 14th of May, 1856, and he re-
mained in charge of them nntil January of this
year. In a letter to the Secretary of War on the
12th of February he says that the process of accli-
mation ha been partially, and so far successfully
accomplished; so that he has no doubt Of its com-
plete success. He proposes that the camels shou Id
have a fixed home for three or four years at some
point on the frontier, where they may be oarefu'ily
attended, and their increase in number promoted,
and from which they may be used trom time to
time in transportation and Bconting. Their present
location (Camp Verde, Texas,) is recommended as
an excellent one. Alter the thirty-three camels
procured by Major Wayne were landed, the United
States ship Supply was immediately dispatched for
another lot, which were duly obtained and lauded
at Indiaoola on the 10th of February last. They
were forty-one in number, and much finer animals
than the first lot,although their cost was no greater^'
The prices of camels range almost as widely as the
soma paid f"r horses in this country. They are
sold at from $15 to (1,000 each, according to their
breed and peculiar characteristics. They have been
used in Tut-cany for two hundred y> ars. The pre-
sent Grand Duke owns two hundred and fifty, and,
although badly cared for they will do the work of
one thousand horses.

From the Plains.
The 8t. Louis Repablican publishes a letter from
Fort Kearney, K. T . dated August 7, from which
we extract the following :
This is becoming decidedly a most lively plaoe
The other day, as you have doubtless been inform
ed, the Cheyenne Indians dropped down upon the
beef cattle intended for the Utah army, and made
a pretty olean sweep.driving off all the cattle kill-
ing and scalping one of the herders, and dangerous-
ly wounding another. The latter is in the military
hospital at this post, undercharge of Dr. Summers.
All this ooourred within a sew miles of this post, but
the Indians could not he pursued, as there is but a
single company of Infantry here, the authorities
having very wisely withdrawn all the mounted
force. Col. Sumner is nut after the Chej ennes, but
bis expedition is also broken up, and his troops
turned over to that all absorbing Utah oommand,
which appears to swallow up everything in its way.
The Western prairies are now turned over to the
Indians, and murder* and robberies will be the order
of the day.
The Tenth Infantry and Phelps Battery of t he
Utah army reached here to-day. The other Begi-
ment of Infantry, the Fifth, I believe, is expected
in a few days. These troops do not appear to be
very mnoh delighted with the service on which
they aro ordered. The season is so late that they
anticipate a great; deal of suffering during the ap-
proaching winter,, in the Boeky Mountains, as tbey
will have only their oanvas to protect them from its
rigors. The oonseqneuce is, that the number of
desertions is unparalleled. The Fifth and TJenth
Infantry have lost nearly five hundred men since
they firat received orders for Utah. It is very
difflcnlt to see wbv this expedition was not put off
nntil next spring,instead of being pushed on at the
eleventh hour at such an immense sacrifice of men
and money. For the last six or seven years, the
Mormons have been conducting themselves the
same as at the present moment, and it is fair to
presume that next spring would have found them
no worse. The secret is, however, that the Utah
movement wsb popular, and every politician feels
it hisduty to mount, the highest waveof popularity
at once, for fear some onu else might get there be

Death of Db. Thomas-Diok.—The Dundee (Scot-
land ) Advertiser records the demise of Thomas Dick,
the well-known'author of the Christian Philosopher
and other kindred works. Dr. Dick; wbo was in
, the eighty-third year of his age, expired at Broughty
Ferry, hear Dundee, on Wednesday last. He was
born in the Hilltown, Dundee, on the 24th of Nov-
ember, 1774, his father being Mungo Dick, a small
linen manufacturer, For ten years he taught at
Perth, where he wrote the Christian Philosoper,
which became a favorite work and ran through sev-
eral editions. The success of that work induoed
him to resign his position as a teacher and retire to
Broughty Ferry, near Dundee, where in 1827 and
in the fifty third year he established) himsélf in a
neat little cottage on the hill, to the astonishment
of the villagers at the time, who looked with wonder
upon bis observatory, and speculated greatly on bis
reasons for dwelling so much above them. From
that time until witbin the last few years, when the
chill of age stayed bis band, his pen was ever busy
preparing the numerous works in which, under
difierent forms and by various methods, he not only,
as an Amelicán divine has said, brought down phi-
losophy from heaven to earth, but raised it from
earth to heaven. About eight years ago he was pro-
strated by a severe illness, from the effects of which
he never wholly recovered.
The Sue of London.—When the stone in Pán-
yer's alley was placed on its site three centuries
since, the circumference was about five miles. At
present, however, Jo make a pedestrian expedition
around the metropolis would to most persons be
an undertaking of some importance, as may be seen
by referring to the following particulars, which
have been gathered from a reeent published map:
From Cbiswiok to Kentish town, 12 miles; from
Kentish town to Milwall, 17}£ miles; from Milwall
to Chis wick 28 miles—total, 57% miles, very near
three day's journey at the rate of 20 miles a day ;
and it' will be observed that in the line drawn, Bat-
tersea, Clapham, Canning town, and many other
places, which even at present can scarcely be said
to be separated from London, have been left out.
"As the crow would fly " across streets and houses
from the point whence we started at Chiswiok to the
farthest east, the distanoe is nearly elevén miles,
and the greatest width from north to south upwards
of seven miles.—The Builder.
