- The A2.PACA. — A meeting of the gentlemen interested in the importation of the Alpaca, from South America, was held on Saturday, at the office> of Mr. Grahame^the honorary secretary, when an offer, which ~hlidHbeeir\made to the committee by the commander of a vessel, about to proceed to that quarter, was discussed. Owing to certain practical difficulties, the gentlemen present at this meeting were compelled to reject this offer, and it was determined, to advertise for a vessel to import these animals. The sum to which it had been originally determined to limit the adventure has been nearly subscribed, but it is conceived, that as the investment is a very safe and profitable one, it would scarcely be advisable to retain this limit. - Further subscriptions will, therefore, be receiv- | cd. We hope very shortly to hear that the whole arrangements on this very important experiment are completed. — Herald, Dec. 2.
