Ingenuity and skill.

--A beautiful pipe, made of ivy root, elaborately engraved, was left at our office yesterday for the inspection of the curious. It represents the coats of arms of five States--Virginia, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas--with numerous other devices, ingeniously wronght.--The bowl rests upon a cannon, which forms a portion of the stem. This artistic piece of work was done with a knife, by A. U. Hurdle, of the Old Dominion Rifles, 17th Virginia Regiment. We learn that it will be presented to President Davis.
