ENGLAND'S LATEST GUN. In accordance with the recommendation of Parlia- ment, the British Navy is being strengthened by the addition of a remarttable new gun. It is known as the 12in. steel and wire gun, and is not only the best weapon which the Royal Navy has ever had, but is far superior to any gun possessed by a foreign navy. It weighs 50 tons, is 41ft. long, and has a muzzle velocity of 2367ft. per second. The projectile weighs 8501b., the bursting charge being 831b., and the firing charge 167Mb. of cordite. The Admiralty has ordered 450, at a cost of £10,000 each. Of these 150 have been completed, and 300 are still in the hands of the contractors. Each man-of-war will carry four of these formidable weapons, and when the navy is supplied, they will be issued to forts on the sea fronts. The new British naval gun, mounted on the heights of Dover, can, however, drop a shell on the shores of France.
