Washington D.C. Oct. 30, 1822. Very interesting and important article about a report in a Halifax newspaper that Honest John Bull has announced the invention by the English of a repeating musket which fires a ball every 16 seconds by means of a superimposed system using a second lock half way down the barrel. The Intelligencer report claims the gun was invented by the American and stocks of them are stored in an American arsenal. Further, that they were not used against the British in the recent war (War of 1812) as the British made arms were sufficient to produce a victory.
