The ingenuity of the work is remarkable; and although the socks may not be quite so soft as silk, they nevertheless possess the advantages of durability and warmth. The ladies of the South are showing a praiseworthy determination to turn every thing to account.

It gives us pleasure to notice these evidences of what the people are doing to thwart the inconveniences of the blockade.--Richmond Dispatch.
