A Celebration. --The Woodstock (Va.) Tenth Legion says:-- We understand that the patriotic citizens residing at Columbia Furnace celebrated Washington's birth-day in quite a spirited manner. A cannon, weighing over eleven hundred pounds, was cast by order of the worthy proprietor of the furnace, for the occasion. It was substantially mounted upon the fore wheels of a wagon, and charged with the best XXX Dupout. Six salutes were fired, the charges being increased at each fire; and the seventh proved too heavy for Columbia's metal, and the cannon and the wagon were blown to everlasting smash. No one was injured by the explosion of the cannon.
