Can live in Spite of the blockade.

--We clip the following from the Savannah News:

‘ From all sections of the Confederacy we have the most cheering accounts. Not only are the growing crops the most promising for years, but the people everywhere seem to have determined upon a full development of their own resources, to adopt the most rigid economy, and, if necessary, to submit cheerfully to any privation for the promotion of the glorious cause of Southern independence. The Charleston Mercury, of yesterday, says:

’ ‘ Our planting friends are daily sending their rice straw to market, which is found to be more valuable than two-thirds of the hay we get from the North, and that North Carolina, Tennessee and old Kentucky are supplying us with butter, which, if not put up in as neat packages outside, is just as good to the taste as the best Goshen; and which is decidedly most valuable to us, as it is all home-made, and pays no tribute, for we Carolinians always feel proud that we carry out the words of our venerable Pinckney--

‘"Millions for Defence, But not a cent for Tribute."’
