Power of the Mississippi Rifle.

--Will a Mississippi rifle, with a Minnie ball, shoot through a steam boiler? It will. A dispute among our friends on this question arose, and was settled by trying it, and the result was that the ball made a hole one-third larger than itself, at about the distance of fifty yards.--Tuscumbia (Ala.) Constitution.
