[From Hie Newport (It. 1.1 News.l Cap-niin Wm. Gardner gave an exhibition of a new arm of Ins invention to the of the Umte-1 Status Nsivy stationed at Torpedo Stution yesterday. This arm is not to be confounded w i t h o t h e ot Captain Gardner which huvo been seen or heard ot by thu public, but is his just completed, and now lor the first seen by any other than himself ami workmen. This arm produced a marked sensation sensation among the onicers and other gentlemen gentlemen present, among whom were several distinguished foreigners. Among the odi- ceis present at the exhibition were K. R. Breeze, commanding Torpedo Station, Station, Capt. Seifridjje, Captain Norton and Captain Buuce, all ol the navy. The unanimous unanimous expression ot the gentlemen present wns that t h i s weapon combined nil Rood qualities of other arms yet devised, and in addition possessed qualities nevei before presented ; that lor practical lapid- ity of lire, range and precision it was unsurpassed unsurpassed ; w h i l e for lightness, strength, durability, accessibility of its working parts, ease of manipulation and capability of long continued use in action it was marvelous. That the reader may hilly reuli/.o w h wonder this invention is, we will aslc him to conceive a little instrument, about the si/.e of an ordinary musket, easily carried on a man's shoulder, as destructive as Catling gun, more so than the French railleuse, and equal to three field cannon when firing grape and cannister. In reply to a question as to w h a t special advantages ot this gun are over other firearms now in use, the inventor replied: "Considerable actual service, a Ion"time Ion"time spent in Europe carefully studying the mitrailleuse and the Catling gun, their uses unci defects, and much experience in inventing other iirms convinced me the ideal firearm was yet to be invented. The liability of these arms to be most ol the time out of order, theii weight, their derangement derangement by transportation, the complicated complicated and frail nature of their mechanism, their clogging by coirosion and their many other delects encouraged me to attempt invention of this weapon. The problem was to produce an arm of equal or efficiency, of much greater strength and durability, not at all liable to be deranged on a i Farj?o's.)

The mechanism mechanism is all contained in a l i t t l e brass attached to the rear end of the barrel, the dimensions ot which arc but thirteen inches inches in length, and live in depth and two and a hall inches in thickness. In addition addition to these there is a l i t t l e crank side ol the box, by which Uie power is applied, aud a hopper on top Irom w h i i n e x h a u s t i b l e supply ol cartridges up.
