Letters to citizens of the Confederate States--a New feature in the blockade.

Louisville, Ky., Aug. 12
--The following is obtained from a reliable source. The Postmaster General declines to deliver domestic letters addressed to persons in the seceded States after they reach the dead letter office. The letters will be opened as fast as received, and generally will be promptly returned to writers. Foreign letters will be delivered op presentation of an order from parties to whom they are addressed.

A Kentucky Congressman, in Secretary Chase's confidence, says that the system of permits will soon be abandoned. Artleles -ly universally acknowledged to be contraband of war will be blockaded at this point. Bagging and rope fabrics, provisions and small stores will pass. Drugs are also heavily urged.
