Important from New Orleans. New Orleans, Dec. 4. --There is no improvement in affairs here; but, on the contrary, matters are worse — business, in a word, is almost at a dead-lock, while quite a number of suspensions have taken place from the in ability of the parties to obtain relief, and the heavy fall in produce, particularly in cotton. It is the impression of many here that the light receipts of cotton is because of the planters holding it back rather than accept of the low rates now current. Operations in Exchange of all descriptions are small, and quotations very unsettled.--Money still goes hard, and at all sorts of rates. The distrust of the future that exists is almost without a parallel, and it is feared the worst is yet to come.
A Convention of the citizens of Texas. New Orleans, Dec. 4. --The citizens of Texas have been urged, in a circular letter, signed by a number of public gentlemen, to elect delegates to a State Convention on the 8th of January. It is said that the Convention will assemble at the capital of the State on the fourth Monday of the same month. The movement appears to meet with popular sanction.
Newfoundland Legislature. St. Johns, N. F., Dec. 4.--The Legislature met to-day. The Governor's speech stated that the House was called to consider the destitution prevailing in the country in consequence of the short seal and cod fishery.--It condemned the system of giving relief indiscriminately, without any equivalent, and alluded to the irregularities of the Galway steamers, to the decrease of revenue, and the injustice of indirectly taxing many to benefit a few. It recommended to the Ministers to greater economy; it regretted that, the Commissioners not having completed their labors the terms of an adjustment with the French, relative to the fishing privileges, could not be published, although they were mainly agreed on.

[special Dispatch to the Richmond Dispatch] the President's Message — its reception-- Mr. Cobb's resignation, "c. Washington, Dec. 4. --The President's Message is thought to be the ablest Mr. Buchanan ever se but it satisfies neither the North or the South--it blows hot and cold — opposes the right of secession, but advocates anything but coercion, Mr. Boteler's committee of one from, each State, to consider the Message, will be packed by Speaker Pennington, and decided Southern sentiment will have no one to represent it. Its conclusions will be of no value.--The signs apparent are more and more for discussion. New York is alive to the crisis, but the rural districts of the North think it all summery, and refuse to yield an inch. Mr. Cobb's resignation to-morrow will be accompanied by an address opposing the President's views concerning secession. Judge Black, at present Attorney General, will be nominated for the vacancy on the bench of the Supreme Court, caused
Congressional. Washington, Dec. 1. --Senate.--The galleries were but simply filled, and the reading of the President's Message was listened to for two hours. Mr. Clingnan moved that the Message be printed lie thought it fell short of investigating the crisis before the Government. The President elect was known to be a dangerous man, because he had avowed principles of the possible conflict, now making war on the South. The present position of parties in Congress holds him powerless; but his party will eventually control the Government, the Supreme Court included. A sectional majority will absolutely control the whole Government. It may beget revolution, and I don't think the Southern States have acted precipitately. If such occurrences as have taken place in the last fifteen years had been with foreign nations, there would need to have been war. In his judgment, a number of the Southern States would secede within sixty days. In South Carolina the Submission party

From Washington. Washington, Dec. 4. --While the President's Message is lauded by the residents of the border slave States as a grand, statesman like effort, it is received with unmitigated condemnation by the Northern and Southern extremists. The spirit evinced by members to day in defining their positions, has fallen like a death pall over the hopes of all who ardently hoped for a restoration of amicable and courteous relations between the North and South. The last hope, based upon the reported willingness of the Northern nullifying States to rescind their obnoxious enactments, have vanished by the assertion of several Republican leaders, that Lincoln, being constitutionally elected, will administer the Government according to the strict Republican interpretation. The report that Fort Moultrie will be reinforced by U. S. troops, is without foundation. The Secretary of War's report recommends no increase in the army.
Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.public meeting in Rockbridge. Lexington, Va., Dec. 4. On the call of a committee, composed of twelve gentlemen of this place, who were selected as prominent and influential members of the three great political parties in our State, a meeting of the citizens of Rockbridge county was held to-day at the Court House, "for the purpose of taking into consideration the alarming state of public affairs." The meeting was unusually large, and was composed of the best men of the several parties. A series of conservative resolutions, that were carefully prepared by a number of citizens of the town, who represented the sentiments of the three parties, were presented, by way of compromise, as expressive of the views of this meeting; but before any effort was made to take a vote upon them, two other sets of resolutions were offered as substitutes.--These brought about a protracted and deeply interesting discussion, which was participated in by
