Cargo of the Memphis.

--The Savannah Republican publishes the fact that the steamer Memphis, which ran the blockade at Charleston some days ago, brought 1,000 barrels of powder, 4,500 Enfield rifles, 20,000 pounds of lead, several millions of percussion caps, and a large supply of blankets for the Government, besides a considerable quantity of assorted merchandize on private account. This will serve us a good term in the present emergency, while the Charleston Mercury adds that sufficient arms have arrived at Confederate ports within the past week to swell the number to near, if not quite, 10,000 together with ammunition of all sorts in abundance.
