--Messrs A. B. Barrett & Co., proprietors of the Southwestern Foundry, at this place, have recently commenced the manufacture of fire-arms. They have about twenty hands now employed, and are turning out at this time ten a day. When they get their machinery in complete order, which we are assured will be in a few days, they will be able to turn out from 25 to 30 guns per day. The guns manufactured by these gentlemen have been inspected and approved by competent judges. So far as we ourselves are capable of judging, we have no hesitancy in saying that they are as good rified as can be made anywhere. We understand that it is the intention of Gen. Floyd to supply his Brigade with the Barrett rifle.--Wytheville Telegraphic.
