Ith the Revolving Cannon, in Tabies I. , the number of hits is higher for the Revolving Cannon than for all other guns. Note the time of firing in Tables I. and II. was one minute, whilst the times of firing in Tables III. and IV. were two minutes, so that, considering the time of firing, the number of hits is much greater for the Revolving Cannon than for the other guns. In tlze report of tlze "Memorial de l'Artillerie de la Mariue,'' :! cts pl11s consid/rablcs que lcs mitmi//cuscs Gatli7~f·'' It must also be remarked that th ese results \\'ere obtained with a Revolving Cannon of the first model, built in I8JI , of infe rior ballistica l capacity, with a projectile weighing 490~' and a charge of 8 s~' Since thi s time the inventor has, from his o wn experiences, and according to indications made by the committee of experiments at Gavre, some valuable suggestions and • augmented the power of his arm, so that there is reason to expect from the guns of most recent elate, w-ing a projec tile of a charge of 120~'· , and results much superior to th ose obtai ned at Gane in January, 1873, and it making a 520"' IS to be regretted that sufficient data for comparison of th e effects obta in ed with the la test models did not exist.

In the Hotchkiss Revolving Cannon the advantages of the Mitrailleuse are combined with the long ranges, precision, and moral effect of the explosive . shells of artillery.. The projectiles have also, to a certain extent, the penetrating power of the same. The superiority of the Revolving Cannon over Mitrailleuses becomes the more remarkable the greater which it is used; :whilst at ranges up to the 250 distance at or 300"'•'· and for purposes of flank defence, case-shot also can be used with success.

When rapidity can be combined with accuracy of fire the e ffect is certainly great, and the advantage is gained, with a ra pidl y-firing gun, to be able to produce a terribly destruc- ti\·e fire in dq:isive moments in an engagement, so that this g un, \\'o rk ed systematically and with d eliberation, will no doubt produce very fonnidable effects. It will be found of parti cu lar value for clearing-away troops in the act ~clve s, al so or for of fortifying them- when they are bring ing siege-artillery into position ; di slodg ing siege-batteries and repelling assaults.
