The Blockade.

--The Charleston Courier publishes the following extract of a letter received in that city, dated Liverpool, June 15;

‘ ‘"We have the news of the blockade of the ports, but hardly think that this country will allow the cotton trade to be interfered with when the next crop comes to market. England must have cotton, and will take steps, no doubt, to get it without any Northern interference when the time comes. For the present the blockade of the ports does not effect her, but let us hope, in a short time, the North, seeing the determination of the South to form an independent Confederacy well settled, will accept, with good grace, what she might be compelled, later on, to submit to."’
