Tho following interesting extracts
from a Charleston correspondent of tho
Mobile Register, will give some idea of
the dilHeulties tho Yankee will havo
to encounter, if they ever attack Char
"Tho struggle, when it come.-;, will
certainly be of a fearful character. It
will bo i'.ie shock of tremeud us forces,
therelativ powers of which are yet

the fighting value of ships against hat
torics will lo brought to a test more
conclusive than any t wnich human

It is scarcely possible tli.it any float

centrated storm cf heavy metal from
the guns of Sumter, .Moultrie and but
tery Boo, the three principal works
commanding the throat of the harbor
Nor can the pc:i! of running tlii.s
terrible gauntlet be diminished by an
attempt to pas under cover of the
darkness as has been the case at Vicks
burg and Mew Orleans. So tortuous
and intricate is the channel leading to
the Forts that tho most experienced pi
lots ot the harbor would not venture
to bring in a vessel by night, under
the conditions which the enemy can
not escape, viz: without it light or
landmark to guide the way. Even
when the blockade-running vessels
leave tho harbor, it is always necessary
to aid their exit by previously arranged
lights (shaded) ami signals; so that it
reasonably certain that tho attack
ing iron-clads must cither en ter in open
day, or incur the ointninent hazard of
g<iug aground upon one of the most
treacherous b;rson the Southern coast,
which seldom yields a vessel once it

fiance, despite of mazy channel, mul
tiplied torpedoes, and the combined
batteries of tho Forts, somo ot the nine
Monitors should chanco to get into port,
they would still havo to encouuter a
concentrated firo of other batteries,
wh-ich, as the Yankee- papers have
learned from contrabands, "line the
chores of tho interior of the harbor."
And then will como tho "tug of war"
hich will determine tho possession of
lo honored old city.

The distress in Lancashire, says tho
Richmond Enquirer, lor tho want of
raw material for tho cotton manufac
ture is docidodly decreasing. In other
words, the numerous persons thrown
out of that species of employment are
gradually becoming absorbod by other
industrial pursuits. Thus it will be
fbun 1, we believe, thit tho supposed
dire extremity of England to brer.k
our blockade and open our ports, will
vanish like all tho other hopes based
on outside influences, and leave us
resting upon our own native energy
and determination at last. The Lou
don "Index," winch keeps -a .sharp
look out upon the state of Lancashire,
with express view to this matter,, has
this paragraph, on tho 22d January :
"The decrease of 'pauperism in Lan
cashire still outinues, but not at a
rate which would justify .he sanguine
expectations 'entertained by-the less
informed section of the public. There
is an apparent diminution of 8,00 J, but
the real reduction does not much exceed
:J,M00 as will be soon by the statistics of
the l.oor-Law Loard.
Till-: W.vit.-rSome persons havo held
that tho war will last with Lincoln's
Government, and have thought that
their opinion marked its buigost term

The Richmond correspondent of tho
