What it has cost them.

--The injury which two or three privateers may do a country which has commerce scattered over the entire globe is shown in the interruption to the trade and commerce of the United States caused by the Alabamans and Florida. The foreign trade of the port of New York for the same quarter in each of the last four years shows that the carrying trade is rapidly changing hands and seeking European flags for protection. In 1860 the value of the goods imported and exported for the quarter ending June 29th, from New York, in American vessels, was $62,598,326; in foreign vessels, $30,918,851. In the same quarter, 1861, in American vessels the amount was $47,900,376; foreign vessels, $29,052,932. 1862, American vessels, $34,285,616; foreign, $53,993,144.
