XVIII. WASHINGTON. P. C . THURSDAY. NOVEMBER 21. 1861. Ng. 2.732 5S;?.T^!25?X?:*,ta*' Latest Newt from the Sooth. From late southern journals we take the following : TH? BLOCKADE AXD ITS IFPICISSrCT. The New Orleans Crescent has the follow* ing The heretofore magic word cotton ia scarcely lisped now-a-days on the flag*. Some parties?would-be operator*?hope that the blookade may be broken or raised, but hoping will not effort it. It is manijytt that Great Bri' tain iri/t adhere to the position she assumed month* ago?a strict neutrality. There has been much talk and a great many comments on what has been termed running the blockade. Report*?and they will prove to be simple reports?say that five hundred and sixteen vessels have run the blockade since the 16th of May last. This ia a very wild estimate even if it is supposed by the returns or statements in the Departmentaat Richmond. The blockade was enforced off the mouths off the mouths of the Mississippi river on the 25th of May, at which time there were forty tall of vessels in this port outward bound, which were permitted to go to sea. Thia blockade commenced eff Mobile and Pensacola abeut the same time. Y&iseSs were allowed to leave these ports till the Sth of June. So far as New Orleans is to be considered, the last arrivals, via the Balize, were on the 2"Jth of May last. There have been some arrivals and departures of schooners from the bayous on the Qulf. There have been some coasting vessels on the coast of South Carolina evading the blookade; but all these will not count up five hundred and sixteen. On the other hand, the Hessian steamer South Carolina has captured seventeen schooners in attempting to run the gauntlet between New Orleans and Texas ports. There have been only three or four vessels from Europe?one the Bermuda?that have successfully run the blockade Some few lVwt India traders have met with success on the Carolina coast. It is misleading foreign governments to make assertions of this charter. that the blockade is easily avoided, when not a vessel has enters* the port of New OrI'ans via the river for the past Jive months, and only one via the taJces from a foreign port. Great Britain and France recognize the closing of our ports, whether effectual or ineffectual. It is, however, thought the steamer Nashville has get out of the port of Charleston and gone somewhere. It is also evident that the steamer Theodora, or Gordon, made a successful trip from that port to Cuba and back The Crescent of the 7th, wya : There was intelligence received yeatcrday of twenty-four sail of Hessian vessels being in Ship Island harbor, on Tuesday. This number was counted through a good telescope, from the look-out at Mississippi eity. Flats and scows appeared to be engaged in transporting materials from the vessels to the shore near the light-house on the island. This is supposed to be the advance of the great fleet intended for the Galf. It is reasonable to suppose that something like a simultaneous attack is intended at three or more points This ean ?asily be carried out, when it is taken into consideration that there are between two hundred and seventy-five and three hundred vessels, including vessels of war, steamers and transports, composing the supposed greet armada. Leaving forty-two vessels at Port Royal, they can come to New Orleans, Mobile and Pensacola with two hundred and fifty. In the meantime our authorities are preparing, and we can only say to the Hessians, come on. Of business at New Orleans, the same paper of the 9th inst. says : Passing by the talk on battles and disruptions in the army, we come to the steadily increasing scarcity of breadstufis and other necessaries of life. Even the artiele of rice, which is selling in Charleston and Savannah at 2t to 3 cents per poand, is now retailing here at 7i cents per {wund. Irish potatoes, which might be raised in almost any quantity on onr prolific soil, are selling at one cent each, or about $2.50 per bushel. Corn has now advanced from $125 to $1 35 per buahel, and we have' for months past been reading of the greatest crop of corn and wheat ever known We judge the countrj is abundantly supplied, and that farmers and raisers intend to hold on and starve us out her? in the Crescent city. If planters have these heavy yields secured, we urge them to send a share to market. Flour is advancing to famine figures. Each succeeding day is attended with mo advance of 25 cents or more per barral. Other articles?such as soap, candles and starch?are advancing from day to day. Soap, candle and starch factories could be made Jrofitable. Soap, which can be made for 6 or cents per pound, is held at 30 or 35 cents.? Starch, another necessary artiole, commands 40 cents per pound; in faot the supply of this article is running se short that start oollars will have to follow a wilted cabbage leaf. For candles the poor folks have to pay 15 to 20 eta. each at the corner grocery Is it not time that sotae of our leading eitisens should take action and move in the establishment of manufactories for these and other articles? It requires but very little capital. If dealers in scrip, stocks and paper ever expect to oonfer any good on the country, now is the accepted time Bat we fancy if the war should be brought to a close, many of our moneyed citixens would leave us and go northward or to Europe, and our good city would be a second ary thought with tbem. It is asked what has forced up the priee of cotton s?ed oil Six or seven months ago it was selling at from 60 to 65 cents per gallon; dow it is held at $1.50 to $2 and $2 50.?There is no scarcity of cotton se:d in the oountry? in fact it is a drug where planters hare ginned their cotton. Are there any solid reasons for an advance of 200 per cent, simply for the eoet of transmuting the seed into oil? The Richmond Dispatch of the 14th expresses its cordial sympathy with the dedre for a new flag, and says : We want nothing in our igtignia, any more than our principles or sentiment*, to remind as of the hypocritical despotism which we have thrown on Thi Dispatoh says : We learn that J. H. Hope, eommiseary agent at Williamsburg, has advised the government here that, under a recent order from Genl. Magruder, his suppliee of beef cattle must be more than double. We expeet General Magruder u looting to 44 an expedition." The tame paper refers to the operation* ia Kentucky, aa follows: It hu been apparent for many month*, and ia obvious now, that the enemy ia making a formidable demonstration towards Bast Tenneaaee from K as tern Kentucky. Oar correspondenee from Taaeweli county, in aoethwaatern Virginia, whioh we published yesterday, nets down the oolumn operating against Col. WHliama at ten thousand strong, and it was believed that the foree before Gen. Zolliooffer, from which that General haa been obliged to retreat upon Cumberland Gap, is probably twice aa large. At the tune time that we bear of the retreat ef Col. Williams upon Pound Gap, we hear apprehenaioas axpreeaed for tba safety of Gea. Zollifoffer at Cumberland Gap. The obiect of the enemy ia nnshing forward thee* columns ia probably three-fold. Tba chief purpose, doubtleaa. la to bring into its own support the large diaafeeted element ef the population in Seat Tenmaaii, whieh have been eorrupted by the elamer of Andy Johnaon, Maynard, Brownlow and Trigg Tba next object of the enemy is, probably, to get poaaeuion of the salt works in the western oorner cf Smyth oounty, where half a million of bushels of salt a year are now manufactured And last, bat not least, tba enemy aim* at tba possession of a portion of the Virginia and Tennessee railroad, ao as to out off our direct communication from the seat of government with Nashville, Memphis, and onr armies in western Kentucky. The clandestine burning of bridges at a concerted period in eastern Tennessee, proves the enemy's designs upon this important highway of transportation and travel. It is very plain that however oar government may depreeiate the importance of the designs x>( the enemy, the enemy himself is pushing them forward with his accustomed enterprise and perseveranoe. Intrinsically important as| south-western Virginia is to the government, from the qualities of its people, it is even more important from its geographical position. If that country be given up, and east Tennessee be in oonsequence lost, the empire of the south is cut in twain, and we become a fragmentary organisation, fighting in scattered and segregated localities for a cause which oan no longer boast the Important attribute of geographical unity. We are glad to believe that the government is fully impressed with these views, and that orders have already been issued to meet the emergency of the case. CONGRESSMEN ELECTED III TEMSK-SEE. The following gentlemen have been elected to Congress: D. M. Curtin,eleventh district; J. C. A. Atkins, ninth district; Tbos. Menees, eighth district; Geo. W. Jones, seventh district; M. F. Gentry, sixth district; H. S. Foot?, fifth district; ?. L. Gardenbire, fourth district; W. G. Swan, second district; J. B. Heiakelf, first district. This leaves the third and tenth districts still in doubt; bat we incline to the opinion that A. G. Welker is elected in the third, and John V. Wright in the tenth. no mors troops fro* mississippi. [From the Memphis Appeal, Not. 12. J The Jackson correspondent of the Vioksburg Sun says he has seen a letter from Gen'l Johnson to Got. Pettns, declining to receive more troops under the late requisition, having already more soldiers than he can dispose of The Governor is requested to disband all companies organised under said requisition, unless they go armed and equipped for the war. The Sun states that the volunteers who had been recently mustered into service at that city were very indignant at being disbanded, and their officers had left for Jackson to lay their case before Gov. Pettus. message op tbi governor of georgia. Gov. Brown, of Georgia, in his message to the Legislature, recommends an advance of two-thirds the value of catten to planters, and that the state pay the war tax and subscribe to the construction of a direct European steamship line. Georgia has fifty regiments in the field, he states. He also deprecates the power of the President to accept troops except through state authority, and regards the system as unconstitutional and opposed to the doctrines upon which state rights are based. the cumbera5d river gunboats. [From the Nashville Gazette, November 10.] On Thursday last, about two o'olock, as we learn from a gentleman who was at the fort, two ef Lincoln's gunboats came up the Cumberland river together as far as Tobacco Port, eight miles below Fort Donelson, when one of nn *1 i iuoui prwccuou uy iuo utoi wivuiu lureo I miles of the fort, and lay there under the point ten minutes. She fired three cannon, and then started back down the river to TobaocoPert, where she and the other beat remained until Friday morning, when they left for Smithland. They kept up their firing at intervals during the night. On receiving information that the boat was nearing the fort, the citisens of Dover, young and old. immediately went down with their guns to assist should anattaek be made. MC'CCLLOCB'S ARMY TO WI*TKR IS TH* ARKANSAS VALLET. (From the Fort Smith (Ark ) Times, Oct 23.] We have information from reliable sources that, after a sixty days' campaign in Kansas and Mi^ouri, the MoCulIoch division will fall back into Arkansas. The quartermaster has advertised for the building of stables to accomodate 5,000 army ho/sea and a large number of mules ; also, for 100,000 bushels of corn and 3 750 tons of hay to forage these animals. The valley has been drawn on during the ontire summer and fall fur the support of Gen MoCulloch's army, and we hope and trust that the encampment of suoh a large number of men and animals aiaong us this winter will not materially pinch us in our own necessary supplies. Immense fires of late have occurred in Memphis destroying property to the amount of several hundred thousand dollars. The president of the southern planters convention announces that that boay will meet in Memphis on the 10th of December. In tae Memphis market, November 9th, the sales recorded on the books were 380 bushels prime red Wheat at $2 10; 80 barrels country extra Flour at $11 25 per barrel; 300 sacks salt at $9 50, and 500 sacks on private terms; 14 tierces Hams at 25 cents; 14 barrels Molasses at 23 cents. The Charleston Railroad brought in 1,366 barrels Flour. Th* United State* Fleet Over two hundred and fifty vessels have now to be regularly looked after by the Navy Department, besides many detached vessels eng"ged in the public service. Of the number, 190 have been supplied with instruments by the National Observatory in Washington?the institution over which Lieut. Maury (-resided. We are glad to hear, as a fact, growing out of the necessities of the public service, that just as good marine instruments ean be and kare manufactured in the United States as the best imported from Europe Lieut. Maury estimated a supply for forty vessels, and his successor in the Observatory, Capt. Oilliss, has actually supplied 190. The war in more ways than one is UMhinc us to rely upon ourselves, and in many ways developing the genius and industry of the country. C DR.
