Reports on the recent visit of Sultan Abd-ul-Aziz of Turkey to the Royal Arsenal, Woolwich, noting that he was shown various weapons and weapon-making processes, including Snider rifles and the casting of William Palliser's 'chilled shot'. Draws attention to the fact that although the sultan was shown, much to his pleasure, weapons 'with which we put our native enemies to death' he was not shown the gallows.
