He fully coincided in that opinion, on theoretical grounds; but at the same time, he agreed with the remarks which had been made, as to the difficulty of applying that material. The great objection to the wire system was, that it had no end-hold, and thus it could not be depended upon, for forming a good breech, and producing a substantial and thoroughly good serviceable gun. He believed that Fig. 18, (page 318, ) represented the construction of a gun, which the Author thought would be most likely to secure the object upon that principle. While agreeing with the principle, Mr. Anderson thought there were many better ways of carrying it out. Before stating his views on this point, however, he would allude briefly to what had been said in favour of cast iron. He did not think the great results expected by the artillerist, would be secured by the use of a homogeneous material like cast iron. It was most uncertain in character; one day a gun stood well, while on another day, it burst, without giving any warning, even when the same amount of care had been taken by the founder. Great expectations had been raised, of late years, by the system of strengthening cast iron by the employment of wrought-iron hoops. Without entering into the question of the priority of invention, he might say, that great results had already been obtained by the use of wrought iron in that manner. Still, taking into consideration the risk of failure, which experiments made within the last few days showed was possible, together with the expense, he thought another direction held out a better prospect of success. A few years ago, it was beli..
