Running the blockade at Wilmington A semi official statement relative to running the blockade at Wilmington, N. C., shows that from January, 1863, to the 23d of October in the same year--ten months--ninety vessels ran into Wilmington. During last August one ran in every other day, making fifteen in that month. In one day, the 11th of July, four ran in, and on the 19th of October last five came safely through the blockaders. At Charleston, during the six months ending in July, 1863, forty-three steamers ran in safely. These facts have been made public in Europe, though it is not at all likely that they will open the eyes of those who are determined not to see.
