Latest from New Orleans. Augusta May 6. --The Jackson Mississippian, of the 1st inst., has extracts from New Orleans papers of Tuesday. The authorities of the city held out to the last in stubborn and heroic refusal to lower the flag of their adoption. All the guns of Fort Jackson were spiked before the surrender. Fort Pike was evacuated, and everything it contained abandoned. Com. Farragut sent a communication to the Mayor and Council on the 28th ult., complaining of the refusal to haul down the Confederate flag, &c, and notified them to remove the women and children in forty-eight hours. The Mayor convened the Council, and they decided not to recede from their position. The Louisiana flag still floats upon the breeze. Mayor Monroe nobly replied to Farragut, saying, "We will stand your bombardment, unarmed and undefended as we are." Farragut, on the 29th, again addressed the Mayor, saying: "Forts Jackson and St. Philip have fallen, and we wil
ntirely groundless, and suppose it to have originated in some distempered imagination, or in the brain of some cowardly miscreant, who sees a "ghost in every fence corner." Our information from the Valley of Virginia represents the armies of Jackson and well as in fine condition and excellent spirits, and anxious to be led against the invaders. We deem it prudent to withhold such information as we have in reference to the position and strength of these forces, but believe them to be ample for the emergency. An official dispatch from Staunton, dated 5th instant, states that the enemy evacuated Harrisonburg on Monday. The town is now in possession of our Cavalry. Under Captain Winfield. We are rather sorry than otherwise to hear of this retirement of the Federal forces. We wanted them to receive a severe thrashing, which we are satisfied would have been inflicted upon them if they had remained. We hope yet that Gen. Jackson may overtake them before they leave the Valley.

Southern feeling in Kentucky. --The following, from the Louisville Journal, shows that Federal bayonets have not yet succeeded in crushing the Southern sentiment in all portions of "old Kentucky:" The ghost of rebellion in Hawesville, Hancock county, Ky., is not yet extinct. It was given out that the loyal men of the place would have a flag raising on Saturday, the 5th inst. The rebels thereabout, however, expressed a determination to prevent the movement, and threatened to visit their loyal neighbors with terrible vengeance if they attempted to carry out their design to hoist the old flag on their sacred soil of Hancock. The sanguinary threats of the were heard by the patriots of the royal districts, many of whom swung their old rifles across their shoulders and went up to the town, determined to be "in at the death," and to assist in the flag raising. The rebels saw that their loyal neighbors were in earnest, and no effort was made to interrupt their proceedings. Th
Sugar going North. --It seems that the merchants of Hickman, Kentucky, who were allowed to lay in large stocks of sugar and molasses while the river was in our possession, have carried their stocks to St. Louis.--One consignment of three hundred hogsheads of sugar, and a lot of molasses, was sold at auction on the 8th inst., the sugar bringing from eight to nine cents. The Republican says: "The sugar was new, from Louisiana plantations, and averaged a fully fair grade. The molasses was of corresponding quality. There was a liberal attendance of buyers, and sales were so prompt, and the prices realized so full, that the results may be taken as evidencing a fast reviving spirit of trade in this city."
dingly, safe among the rebels in life, servants or property. He told me soon after I arrived that if I did not believe in him I should perish, like the Jews. for not believing in the Saviour. But little did I then think that I should ever come so near it by the sword of one of his own miscreants, in his own capital, as I did the other day. Ean Wang, moved by his Coolie elder brother (literally a Coolie at Hong Kong) and the devil, without fear of God before his eyes, did, on Monday, the 13th inst., come into the house in which I was living, and then and there most willfully, m icicusly and with malice aforethought, murder one of my servants with a large sword in his own hand in my presence without a moment's warning or any just cause. And after having slain my poor harmless, helpless he jumped on his head most fiendishly and stamped it with his foot, notwithstanding I besought him most entreatingly from the commencement of his murderous attack to spare my poor boy's life. And not

Later from Europe. Halifax, May 1. --The steamer America has arrived with advices to the 20th ult. The War in America The London Times editorially expatiates on the importance of the struggle for New Orleans, and says that the occupation of that place by the Federals would be like a tourniquet tightened over the great artery of the Seceded States. The London Morning Herald has a sarcestic editorial on the protracted continuance of the American struggle. It sees no signs of exhaustion in the North or discouragement in the South, and believes that a speedy peace is hopeless. The editor further says that the Government at Washington should be permitted to have one more chance, and if it fail the Great Powers should promptly interfere on behalf of the general well being of mankind. That this has not been done before is owing to the generosity of England, as France was ready; but it is time England should cease to stand between her own people and the relief they nee

The lots varied from five to sixty bales, and the aggregate destroyed is several thousand bales. The rebel gunboat fleet from New Orleans has arrived off Fort Wright and joined Hollins's fleet. They have now a sufficiently strong naval force to make a show of resistance. The War in Arkansas. Forsyth, Mo., May 1. --On the 24th ult. the Federal cavalry from this place destroyed an extensive saltpetre manufacturing establishment near Yellville, Arkansas, and burned the buildings.

whether they will be successful as the directors are in favor of giving the work to Brazilians. The lowest bid will be for more than a million of dollars. Political news is very quiet. The Emperor is quietly spending the hot months at Petropolis, among his Ministers and all the Diplomatic Corps; and the only excitement in commercial news is the increased demand for coffee from the United States, which has raised that article as high as 9,500 per arroba for some choice lots. On the 25th of this month there is to be a grand festival, it being the anniversary of swearing to the Constitution, and the grand equestrian statue of Don Pedro I. is then to be inaugurated. It is one of the finest and largest statues in the world, and has been erected at a cost of over half a million of dollars. There has not been one single case of yellow fever reported this year, and the city, though very hot, is most unusually healthy for this time of the year. Commercial news. Numbe
