Another improvement in fire-arms.

--Mr. T. W. Cofer, of Portsmouth, Va., has just completed an improvement in revolving fire-arms by which the process of loading is so much facilitated that the ordinary Colt or other Revolver, with this improvement attached, may be loaded and discharged with fourfold rapidity. Mr. Cofer left that place for Richmond yesterday for the purpose of securing a patent for his invention.
