Six of the Rifled Parrott Guns recently purchased for the use of the State, were sent to Norfolk on Thursday last by order of the Governor, over the Norfolk and Petersburg Railroad. The cannon spoken of are of the most effective kind known, and are designed to aid in the defence of that city, whose vicinity may become the theatre of some stirring events ere long. It is not to be doubted that Virginia, in the exercise of her sovereignty, will feel called upon to expurgate all remnants of the existence of any Government inimical to her own, which, when the time comes for action, she will do to a moral certainty.
