Shoes for the South.

-- The Boston Shoe and Leather Reporter says that ‘"in consequence of the law enacted by the Southern Confederacy for the collection of duties upon all goods imported from 'foreign countries,'which, being interpreted, means the Northern States, the Southern shoe buyers have been very anxious that all orders previously given by them should be filled on or before the 15th instant, and the goods shipped, if possible.-- In some instances the buyers have been so anxious that they have directed, if their orders could not be filled in season, that the bills thereof should be made out and forwarded instead. The tariff on shoes, we believe, under their laws, is about twenty-four percent., and, of course, the saving in the aggregate will be very large."’
