I A TERRIBLE DEATH-DEALER. As illustrating recent developments in the power of the guns of the United States Navy, a contem- porary compares the energy of a 6in. gun of a few years ago with that of a 6in. gun of to-day. Then the gun was 30 calibres in length, weighed 4*8 tons, had a muzzle velocity of 2000ft. per second, and a 1001b. projectile. Its muzzle energy was 2773ft.- tons, and its practicable rate of fire two and a-half aimed shots per minute. The latest type has a length of 50 calibres, a weight of 8-2 tons, a muzzle velocity with smokeless powder, and a lOOlb. pro- jectile of 2900ft. per second, and a muzzle energy flf 5836ft.-tons. Its practicable rate of fire is eight aimed shots per minute.
