--An eight-inch rifled columbiad, of English make, was placed on a freight train at the Fredericksburg depot yesterday morning, to be transported to a point where such an implement may be used for a good purpose.
This is one of the guns which recently arrived at a Southern port, by steamer, from the other side of the Atlantic.
