Is reported that immenso activity prevails at the
private manufactories of arms in Hartford nnd
other portions ol Connecticut, and that orders
from the South are constantly received and
filled. At n single factory in Hartford, one
hundred nnd Gfty men arc working night and
day, making patent rifles for the rebels of the
Confederate States. Great numbers of the
ordinary sty lo of Sharpo's rifles are also manu
facturing in the same city. It is further re
ported that tho orders from tho military authori
ties of the seceded States are of the heaviest
kind. It is no unusual circumstance to receive
orders for work to the amount of ono hundred
thousand dollars a day. These contracts, wo
are iulormed, aro exclusively Southern, aud we
learn, moreover, that they are invariably ac
