never before given in Virginia for any man or measure. The vote in the East, the Valley, the Southwest and the Central West will be nearly unanimous. There will be no contest except in the Northwest, and even in this section there will be a majority for the ordinance outside of the Pan Handle. We have already sufficient information to justify the expectation of decided majorities in favor of the ordinance in the counties of Wetzel, Tyler, Pleasants, Hitchie, Lewis, Bourbon and Marion. In Wood, Taylor and Monongahela, it is believed that the majorities will be the other way.--From the other counties of the Northwest, outside of the Pan Handle, our information is not yet sufficient to determine with confidence to which side the majorities will incline; but in all of them many votes will be cast for the ordinance. Along the line of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad we learn that the Western counties of Jefferson, Berkeley, Morgan and Hampshire are not only for secession, but are s

Its form is similar to that of the ordinary shell. The interior walls are coated with a non-conducting composition, which prevents the charge from fusing them. The charge is molten material poured in through an easily closed gate or opening. The thickness of the shell is so arranged that whether it falls upon hard or soft earth, stone or wood, it bursts, and the contents fly in every direction, and in all shapes and quantities If it strikes wood, ignition instantly ensues; and if a human being, it passes down or through the body with the rapidity and effect of fighting. A series of test experiments have been tried, both with cannon and projecting by hand. In one of the latter trials, a person standing imprudently near the spot of explosion was struck by a descending piece of the filling about the size of a pe
