Charleston and Liverpool merchant steamers.

An intelligent Richmond gentleman who has lately visited Charleston, writes an interesting letter to a friend in this city, from which we make the following extract:

‘ "I may as well mention that a direct line of ocean steamers, to carry cotton and passengers between Charleston and Liverpool, is now a fixed fact. A meeting on the subject was held in Charleston on the afternoon of the 22d inst., and a large amount of the stock at once taken. One gentleman took $50,000 worth. Charleston furnishes $350,000, and Liverpool $400,000. The committee from Liverpool had secured the amount there before coming over. I have this from reliable authority. Business is said to be better in Savannah than usual. Is Richmond up and doing? If not, she would better be."
