must offer some apology for having said so little to them, and so much to the men; but I told them in the beginning my business was mainly with the men to-day. I was glad to see them here, and I must say that the women, in this great and patriotic cause, are not at all behind the men. The patriotism of the women I believe throughout the country where I have been — the mothers and daughters — has not been behind the men, but even ahead of them. In Montgomery, when the order came from General Bragg for ten thousand sand bags, the women turned out on the Sabbath, as well as the week days, and completed the order in a very short time. In other places, where volunteer companies had been called out, the ladies have made the uniforms in a remarkably short space of time. In my own county, which has raised three hundred and fifty men, the ladies made the uniforms for the last company in two days, and it was ready to go with the rest. The ladies have done their duty as well as the men h

f the United States meet me with two statements, the force of which it will be for your lordships to decide. I am told by some that there is no pretensions on the part of the United States of a blockade existing; that the Government is merely closing its own ports, to do which they claim to have a perfect right. In direct conflict with this are all the official notifications of United States officers. Capt. Adams, for instance, writing on board the Sabine, on May 19, says in a letter to Gen. Bragg: This (Pensacola) port is now strictly blockaded, &c. Commodore Mervin's announcements — I have not seen any of them — are said to be similarly worded; and I am told that the President of the United States publicly promulgated the blockade of all the ports south of Baltimore, (which is in the State of Maryland.) A prominent feature of this alleged blockade is the complete absence of uniformity, order, and regularity which has characterized it. The distance of several rendezvou
