Col. Blanton, of Kentucky, now in Virginia, offers to subscribe two thousand dollars toward building an iron-clad gunboat at Richmond for the defence of that city. He truthfully says: “There are hundreds of men in our community who can give from five hundred to five thousand dollars each and not miss it.” It is supposed that the boat shall cost seven hundred thousand dollars. The sum of two hundred thousand dollars has been already conditionally pledged.--Memphis Appeal, March 30.
