Obstructions to commerce.

--Gov. Moore has received instructions from the Government at Montgomery, through Hon. C. G. Memminger, Secretary of the Treasury, totally disapproving of any obstructions to commerce in our ports.

The Collector of New Orleans has also been notified to the same effect, and an order has been sent to Galveston to raise the embargo at that port and to release all vessels, the General Government alone having the power to lay an embargo on commerce.

It is in accordance with these instructions that Governor Moore ordered the release of the steamship Catawba.

Gov. Moore, in reply to a dispatch relative to the seizure of boats and other Southern property by the authorities of Ohio, have been informed by the Government at Montgomery to wait until these reports shall be confirmed, and then only to retaliate by seizing property belonging to the citizens of Ohio.

We are glad to learn this as it shows the calm judgment of our Government and flamoderation and justice in the very height of this excitement. How different is their action from the fanatic hordes of the North and the Lincoln Government?--N. O. Picayune.
