The Big gun probably bursted.

--The great gun at the Rip-Raps, which has given some annoyance to our troops at Sewell's Point, but without doing them the slightest harm, is supposed to have bursted on Thursday evening. She had fired two shot in the direction of Sewell's Point, and in firing the third, an explosion entirely different from the rest was caused, without projecting a shell or shot of any kind, and it was the opinion of those who observed it that the gun had bursted.--Norfolk Herald.
