, as it seems possible that he may have done, we hardly think any other attempt will be made to blockade New Orleans at least.
will then confine themselves to lying off the port and capturing vessels that go to sea. But they will not be allowed to exact duties from vessels going in, as the London Times
has already announced.
We conceive then that the blockade will be given up as a bad job.
