Yankee guns.

--We saw yesterday, at the Central Depot, three superior brass pieces--one James' rifled cannon and two mountain howitzers — which, we were informed, were taken from the enemy at the battle near Leesburg on the 21st of October. They were made in Massachusetts, and are probably among the best guns of their calibre procured by the Yankee government for the purpose of destroying a race vastly superior to their own. After they are remounted at the Arsenal they will doubtless be placed in a position to serve a much better purpose.
