Benefits of the blockade.

The blockade which Lincoln intends for our injury is working in exactly the opposite direction. We have heard of no less than four important branches of manufacture, (two of them indispensable in time of war,) which this blockade has taught us to produce ourselves. One of these is manufactured at less than half the price of the Northern article, and is better in every respect. The truth is, if he will only continue his blockade long enough, he will prove the most efficient ally of Southern manufacturing independence that we could possibly command.
