Latest from New Orleans.
entire Suspension of business.
Burning of cotton and steamboats.
&c. &c. &c.

Mobile, April 25. --(Received in Richmond at 11 o'clock P. M.)
--The enemy passed Fort, Jackson at 4 o'clock yesterday morning.

When the news reached New Orleans the excitement was bundles. Martial law was put in full force, and business was completely suspended.

All the cotton and steamboats, excepting such as were necessary to transport coin, ammunition, etc., were destroyed.

At 1 o'clock to-day, the operators bade up good-bye, saying that the enemy had appeared before the city, and this is the last we heard from the Crescent City.

This is all we know regarding the fall — Will seed particulars as soon as they can be had.
