From New Orleans.

--The New Orleans papers pay high tributes of respect to Stonewall Jackson.

Persons from New Orleans represent the condition of the city as very gloomy and depressing. It is impossible to estimate the number of old residents who have abandoned the place under the recent order. They were leaving in all directions. Many of them had gone to Havana. There was no business — The town seemed to be occupied by none but negroes and the Yankee soldiers.

Banks has concluded to garrison New Orleans with 18,000 negro troops. Banks's tyranny threatens to be worse than Butler's.

Mr. G. W. Betterton, convicted of an attempt to furnish supplies to the Confederates, has been sentenced to pay a fine of $28,000 and be imprisoned at hard labor in Fort Pickens for one year.

About six thousand men, women, and children, have lately been exited from New Orleans. Such a scene of wholesale exited has not been witnessed in modern times. It carries back the world to barbarous ages, and exhibits the Yankee nation in the light of one of the most cruel, unrelenting, and brutal of the races of men that have flourished in any age.
