The TitUburg Ley itch contains the foK
lowing interesting icformation : Thero
is no method of spiking a cannon which
will forever prevent its use. If the spiko
is made of iron or unhardened steel, it
may be removed by the drill. If it is
loosely insetted, or without much force,
it may bo blown out by firing a charge of
gunpowder placed in the bottom of the
bore. Tin t if tho spiko is mado ofharden
ed steel, to fit the vent closely, nnd is dri
ven in with great force, and if its lower
end is made soft and riveted within the
bore, then neither tho drill nor gunpow.
der can romovo it; the vent remains per
manently closed. The remedy, in such
rases, is to drill a ne v vent, which may
be done without impairing the servioeahle
ne.ss of tho gun. A new vent may be drill
ed in any cannon by a skillful machinist
in two or three henrs.
