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. Banks has issued an order that "owners or agents occupying plantations or other landed property through which the military railroads and telegraph lines of the United States Government in this department are located or bordering upon such lines, will be held rigidly are unable for all malicious interference with or injury to the same, within the limits of their possession." This is rather high, but will not secure the safely of railroads and telegraph lines whenever our boys have a chance to make a dash at them.

The Era, of last evening, thus notices an exciting row, in which some men of the 9th Connecticut--an infuriated mob — figured prominenting.

Some soldiers of the 9th Connecticut, the regiment in Lafayette Square, the same enraged at the police last evening for arresting two or three of their number, and we undersigned made a demonstration to effort their release, but wear finally induced to retire to their quarters to the square. A short time after, as the police were leaving the station house to go out on their beats, they were attacked by the soldiers with old battles, brickbats, rooms, etc., and driven back to the station. The police remained undercover of their entrenchments for some time, while the soldiers showed a warlike front in the square. A true was finally established, the ringleaders among the soldiers were arrested and the letterheads went forth on their beats.

At a meeting of "Union men" in this city on Saturday night a proposition for a meeting of delegates from the several parishes, with a view to calling a State Convention for the adoption of a new State Constitution, was adopted. These "hole and corner" men are undertaking a big business but it won't pay, as they will find to their cost.

John proprietor of the Delta died this afternoon after a He was a man of strong attachments and and invigorate antipathies, full of energy and sure prize, and listed for his great industry.

On Sunday night, or early yesterday morning, coins sacrilegious scoundrel stale from the Cathedral of St. Louis, to the second district, the large silver cross which charged the altar, and which was the gift of Don Claronaster, the father of the Countess Fortrigas. I had been in the Cathedral for over half a century, and its intrinsic value was between ascribed $1000. As a relic of former days in few exclusion and on the score of religious association, I was regarded by many as almost priceless assistance of the cobber has yet been discovered — at least so I am informed — but every effort will be made for his detection.

In the case of Riancho vs. Farragrity in the U. S. Provisional Court, for the recover of Confederate money and other property belongings to plaintiff union fully seized by of one held by defendant, the Court held that the property sought to be recovered form the Admiral (Farragut) was captured by the naval forces of the United States within the department, and that it is now held by the Admiral commanding the forces here as prize of war.

I, further appears that nearly all the property sought to be recovered is Confederate money, or obligations of the Confederate States so called — An action will not lie against an officer of the Navy of the United States for properly captured by subaltern officers and detained by him.

The Confederate money was contraband and forfeit, and no action would lie for theirs under any circumstances, and other property captured with it would be subject to the same disposition. It could not be recovered from a person not holding a commission from the United States Government.

Peter Von Ostern, a bicker in the city, having become tired of greenbacks, made a contract to exchange the same for gold. It had deposited the greenbacks, and was receiving the gold, when a police officer seized the glittering rebel, and born it in triumph to the office of Sheriff Drishamifer "safe keeping."

The Marhets--The Era, of the 13th, notes the sale of miscellaneous articles in that city on the 12th, thus: Thirty kegs and firkins lost, at 16@ 30 casks bacon shoulders, at according to quality; 10 fierces hams at 26 barrels order, $350 @ 375; 50 boxes candles, at 23; 10 boxes castile soap at 15 firkins butter, at 6 barrels lard all 90, 106 barrels extra flour, at $11 10@ 12.15, for new, good, and choice extra; 4 barrels whiskey, at and casks of brandy, at 30, and $1.40.
