Run the Blockade

NEW YORK, March 24. – A Key West letter of the 11th says that while the captured steamer Magnolia was being chased by the Brooklyn the steamers Tennessee and Florida succeeded in making their escape out of the Mississippi and probably by this time in Havana.  The Tennessee had 1,000 and 800 bales of cotton on board.
