A man named Smith was brought before the Mayor of New Orleans on Thursday last, charged with being an Abolitionist. The charge was proven, and Mr. Smith was sent to the workhouse for six months. The funeral of Gen. Walter Jones took place in Washington city on the 16th, from the residence of Mr. Miller, on F street.
