New Orleans markets,Dec. 28.

From the New Orleans Commercial Bulletin's weekly report of the markets, ending the 25th ult., we extract the following:

Cotton.--We noticed in our last semi-weekly review; sales, during the early part of the week, of 150 bales for future delivery at 8½a8¾c for middling. We have not heard of a sale from the limited stock offering on the spot. The receipts since the 24th inst. comprise 7 bales, against 33,330 bales during the corresponding period last year. As the receipts are for transhipment, we add them to the exports — leaving on hand a stock of 11,907 bales, against 338,175 same time last year. The entire receipts reported since the 31st Augustare 2,593 bales, against 933,650 same time last year. Exported, 804, against 669,420 last year, of which 399,640 were to Great Britain and 125,700 to France.

Tobacco.--Nothing has been done of any moment; the only sales reported being one hogshead at six cents, and ten hogsheads at 7½ cents, and a round lot of fifty hogsheads on Thursday, about one-third refused, at 7½ cents. We regard prices as so unsettled that for the present we omit all quotations; but round lots could be sold at 7½ a 8 cents. Received since the 24th instant, thirteen hogsheads; week's receipts, forty-five hogsheads; exported, none.

Sugar.--The receipts have been on a less liberal scale; and, with a fair demand, prices have ruled more in favor of sellers than during the early part of the week — the sales comprising none of any moment on Wednesday (Christmas)--eleven hundred hogsheads on Thursday, and one thousand yesterday. This makes a total for the week of 8,500 hogsheads. We now quote inferior at 1¾ a 2 cents; common to good common at 2¼ a 2½ cents; fair to fully fair at 2¾ a 3¾ cents; prime to choice at 3¾ a 4¾ cents; yellow clarified at 5 a 6½ cents; seconds at — a--; and white clarified at 6¼ a 7¼ cents.
