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.

Boston Money Market.--The Banks have but a meagre holding of coin, in view, especially, of the 15 per cent. law, nearly all of them try to keep more or less, and they have no united action, except in the matter of half-bill settlements, a measure of little relief to the public.
