Later from New Orleans. The Southern Crisis publishes a letter from New Orleans, dated on the 31 Inst. It contains some items of interest which we extract. The sale of blooded stock, the property of Messrs, Kenner & Kinor, seized by the Federal military authorities and confiscated, commenced yester and is continued to-day. I am glad to learn that Panic, Viceroy and Whale are not included in the lot to pass under the hammer. They, at least, are safe at present. It is mortifying that any of our fine Southern blooded stock should pass into Northern hands, but our mortification would be greatly increased if our most prized attentions were included. The funeral of Major Pados took place yesterday, and was attended by a very large number of our citizens. Gen. Auger, the Era announces, left here on Sunday afternoon for Baton Rouge, accompanied by his staff. It is understood that he has resumed his command at that place. Gen.

hing to encumber the army as little as possible on the march, he left everything that was superfluous at Brashear city. His tents, his army knapsacks, the officers' baggage, considerable supplies of stores and provisions, have all fallen into the hands of the Confederates--Beyond the few clothes worn by those who escaped on the Hollyhock, (and they did not stop to make very elaborate toilettes,) everything was captured. Lately a small train has been run daily on the Jackson railroad to Kenner, fourteen miles above the city and sometimes on to Manchaca, on the South Pass of Lake Maurepas. Manchaca Pass has been the scene of bridge burning more than once within a few months past. Yesterday a train with the only locomotive on the road was sent up to Manchaca to bring back the hand cars, tools and men who have just completed the repairs of the bridge. That train did not return, and we have news this morning that it was taken by the Confederates, who now hold the Pass. As this give
