A specimen of "Green Fire."

--Thirteen tin tubes containing the composition which the Yankees have called "Greek Fire" were taken out of one of the unexploded 8 inch shells fired into the city by the enemy some weeks ago, and some of these tubes have been shown to us. We learn that experiments made with the mixture they contain leave no doubt that it is the genuine Yankee "Greek Fire."--Charleston Mercury.
