Our success at New Orleans.

--We congratulate our readers upon the splendid success of Capt. Hollins, at New Orleans. We hope it is but the beginning of the end, and that a few months will see our ports freed from the presence of the blockading fleets. If Capt. Hollins shall have succeeded in destroying the whole squadron of the Yankees, as it seems possible that he may have done, we hardly think any other attempt will be made to blockade New Orleans at least. The Yankees 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.
