The State Armory. --Our readers have been made acquainted with the proceedings in reference to the establishment of an Armory, for the manufacture of implements of war, on an extensive scale, in this city: but very few, we imagine, are aware of the progress that has already been made, under the supervision of Capt. Charles Dimmock, in that direction. We visited the Armory yesterday, and took a survey of matters and things generally. The interior of the western wing of the building has been entirely rebuilt. New timbers and iron columns have been introduced, new floors laid, and everything reconstructed in the most substantial manner. It will require but a few days to complete this portion of the establishment. The eastern wing will then undergo a similar process of improvement, and it is probable that the whole will be finished early in the spring, ready for the movements of the contractor in the department of machinery. There is ample room for carrying on the necessary ma

ent kinds, ammunition, and other necessary articles, and in mounting artillery, in anticipation of the event which subsequently occurred. The reports from the Ordnance Department of the State, which have been laid before the Convention from time to time, will show what she had done in the way of preparation, and what number of artillery for the field, and what number of small arms, ammunition, and other articles necessary for fitting out and maintaining an army, have been issued. To Col. Charles Dimmock, Chief of the Ordnance Department, is the State largely indebted for what has been done, before and since the war commenced. He is not only an accomplished and well educated military officer, but he is a systematic business man, remarkable for energy and perseverance. His services to the State have been and are now invaluable in the position he occupies. A large portion of the ammunition which has been used in the war, was captured at Norfolk, and the heavy guns supplied to our
