An old piece.

--A brass six pounder, of most superior workmanship, was yesterday conveyed to the Armory shops for the purpose of being rifled and put in complete order for service. It was made in Europe in the latter cart of the last century, and has been the property of the State of Virginia since the revolutionary war. The gun-carriage, judging from its appearance, is about as old as the gun, but after it has been remounted, it will prove an effective addition to one of our field batteries.
