ds. Under the favor of Providence, we have reason to hope that the harvests of the present year in all the South will be plentiful, and that we shall not have need to open this up and down river trade again while hostile feelings prevail. We trust that all the Southwestern States will concur in the propriety of perpetuating the policy of river blockade, which has been inaugurated just at the right time for us.--The States above us cannot reasonably complain that the navigation of the Mississippi river is not free to them, when they have been the first to interrupt it; and they must expect that the example they have set us will be followed by the South renewing the blockade as soon as it shall be suspended by them. The same paper says: The steamer H. D. Mears arrived yesterday afternoon from Vicksburg, having on board tour military companies from Arkansas, as follows: Etonia Guards, Capt.

The volunteer forces from the counties of Clarke, Shenandoah, Rockingham, Jefferson, and Berkeley, are represented as being in the highest state of efficiency, and should the opportunity occur, will no doubt give a good account of themselves.

A squad of eight men from the Forest Rangers, of Pikesville, passed here this morning on their way to Virginia. They were under the command of Capt. Nichols. A correspondent of the New York Commercial than makes known the views and intentions of Commodore Pendergrast: Commodore Pendergrast, flag-officer of the Cumberland, which lies at Old Point Comfort, is fully up to the work of keeping the blockade a rigid one. He is in favor of planning expeditions against the Virginia batteries at different points, where the naval force, co-operating with the land force, can destroy them and keep the rivers emptying into the bay free. He is in favor of this as a matter of instant action, by the assumption of some responsibility if need be, instead of waiting till the Virginians have entrenched themselves so as to render their dislodgment di

to the National vessels-of-war, about twenty armed steamers from New York, Boston and Philadelphia, have been, or are being, put in readiness for blockading purposes. Information has been received that enlistments for the increase of the personnel of the Navy are so successful that the necessary number will soon be supplied. The Secretary of the Navy is assiduous in hurrying forward the measures of the blockade, and informs his friends that by this time Charleston and the Savannah river experience its effects. The steamer Niagara and other vessels will similarly operate at New Orleans. Speaking of the commerce of the Mississippi, the Memphis Bulletin of the 12th instant says: The blockade at Cairo will operate in more ways than one. The ostensible object is to prevent the export of provisions and munitions of war from the Northwestern to the Southwestern States. But it will be equally effective in preventing the exports from the latter in return. So far a
