From New Orleans. Jackson, May 8. --A gentleman from New Orleans says that Banks has published an order requiring all registered enemies of the United States to take the oath of allegiance, or prepare to leave the Yankee lines on the 15th of May. The negroes are disgusted with Yankee freedom, and prefer to be whipped by Confederate masters rather than to be shot by Yankees. The new oath is far more binding, subjecting those who take it to conscription. A riot occurred at the Varieties Theatre a few nights ago. H. M. Summer struck Mrs. Baker, whilst acting on the stage, because she would not play a Yankee authoress.
