Important, if true.
--We get the following from the Savannah News
, of the 29th April:
A dispatch received in this city from Baldwin
, states that a gentleman arrived at that place from Gainesville
, on Sunday night, who says that he had seen a captain of a vessel, who, in attempting to run the blockade, was chased by the blockaders, and was compelled to blow up his vessel, the crew escaping in their boats.
The captain had late Havana
papers, in which it was stated that the Spanish Government
had recognized the independence of the Southern Confederacy, and that ambassadors from that Government were on their way to Richmond
with dispatches to that effect.
We give the above as it comes to us, from a reliable source, in the hope that it is true.
