--We have already chronicled the fact that the ladies of Mobile, Charleston, and other points in the Confederacy, are contributing with liberality and enthusiasm to the fund for the construction of gunboats. We are glad to learn that the example has animated the men of Charleston to set on foot a movement for the speedy completion of an iron-clad gunboat of the most formidable character, intended to put an end to the imperfect blockade of Charleston harbor now maintained by the war vessels of the enemy. The success of the Merrimac has given a wonderful impetus to this very proper enterprise, which will undoubtedly be pushed forward with all possible dispatch.
