Run the blockade.
--The steamer Miramon
, which for some time has been confined in the port of Mobile
by the Yankee
blockaders, managed to effect her escape on last Monday night, during the heavy blow, and is now safely at anchor in the Lake
, at the terminus of the Pontchartrain Railroad
This is the steamer whose appearance on Tuesday in the Mississippi
so alarmed the people of the lake shore watering places, and it is exceedingly gratifying to know that she is much more likely to prove a friend and defender than an enemy.
Our authorities should at once effect her purchase, and put such an armament aboard as would enable her to clear the Lake
of the chicken thieves. --N. O. Bulletin, 22d.
