The story about breaking the blockade.

A notice appeared in this paper yesterday morning relative to reported proceedings of Admiral Dundas with reference to the blockade. For this information; it turns out there was no foundation whatever. The British Consul in this city knows nothing of any communication from the Admiral, through Lord Lyons, to the Northern President on the subject in fact, Admiral Dundas is not in command on our coast ! The story was made up out of whole cloth by some one; and, being once afloat, it travelled rapidly, It was one of those stories which people were not much surprised to kegs, as they believed something like it would happen soon and thus gentlemen reported it with a positiveness set consistent with a proper caution in these times, when there is so much reason to receive everything that does not come to us upon undoubted authority with distrust.
