A formidable weapon.

--We were shown yesterday a knife, manfactured by Mr. Pruitt, of Prattville, which is the most formidable looking weapon in the shape of a knife we have yet seen. The Arkansas toothpick is left completely in the shade. The blade of the one we saw was nineteen inches in length, and weighed two and one half pounds. It seemed to be of good steel, and appeared powerful enough to divide a Yankee completely. Mr. P. has just furnished one hundred of these knives to Capt. Faulkner's company of Autauga, will be ready to supply as many more as may be needed.--Montgomery Advertiser.
