--A correspondent of the Governor
, writing from Tennessee
, suggests the making of a twin bomb--one of which to contain powder, &c., and the other camphene.
It is thought that by this arrangement that when the bomb bursts it will ignite the camphene and produce a sheet of flame twenty feet square.
The Governor's correspondent thinks that if such a bomb could be thrown with equal precision, it would be far more fatal and destructive especially in attacking forts, ships, &c. Speaking of bombs reminds us to say that one of Lincoln
's ten- inch lumps of union cement thrown from the Monticello
, on the 21st inst., at the Manchester Artillery, at Sewell's Point
, can now be seen at the Dispatch office.
It weighs 95 lbs.
