Confiscated property in New Orleans.

The advertising in the New Orleans papers consists chiefly in the advertisements of "U. S. Marshal's monitions." All the property of John Slidell, consisting of 844 lots and ten squares of ground, is advertised for sale; the contents of D. C. Johnson's hat store; the household furniture, books, pictures, &c., belonging to Wirt Adams; the property of Henry M. Hyams, consisting of 123 lots and two squares; the household furniture, &c., of John Smoker; eight lots of ground-belonging to Greeley Andrews; one lot, the property of Albert W. Merriam; two lots, the property of Wm. F. Hodgkins; one lot belonging to Augustus Richard; four lots belonging to Wirt Adams. These lots are all described in detail in the Era, and consume an entire page. Besides these there are several advertisements of seizures of portable property, such as whiskey, &c., belonging to rebels or rebel sympathizers.
