Sir,—I have the honor to suggest that this Department can easily obstruct the channel to Norfolk so as to prevent the exit of the Merrimac, provided the army will carry the Sewell's Point batteries, in which duty the navy will give great assistance. Very respectfully, Gideon Welles. Be it remembered that the above extracts are all dated March 13th, four days after the so-called victory of the Monitor over the Merrimac!
