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

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."

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
