Later from New Orleans.

--The New Orleans Era, of the 16th inst, reports gold in small sums at 91 to 95 premium, and good ordinary cotton, rebated, $1 per pound. The market was pretty well, exhausted of the staple. New prime molasses is quoted at 80 cents.

The death of Wm Ferret is announced. He had been Mayor, Collector of the Port, and served in the Legislature and Municipal Council.

The river on the 15th, in front of the city, was falling and was nine feet six inches below the high water mark of 1862. On the 8th instant the river was rising at St Louis.

The papers, as usual, contain very little news of interest. There had been an arrival with news from Tampico of a late date. All was quiet at that port. The French had whipped the Mexicans at Tuscan, and captured the fort, with four pieces of artillery. They now occupy the town. It is stated that reinforcements were expected at Tampico, among them a body of eight hundred Arabs, which is rather a strange commodity we imagine. As soon as they arrive expeditions are to be made up to act in the interior on the guerilla plan, we suppose.

Judge Dent, a brother-in-law of Gen Grant, has for some time past been cultivating a plantation ten miles back of Skipwith's Landing. A guerilla party entered the neighborhood on Tuesday, stole sixty mules and carried away all the negroes employed on the plantation, and everything else they desired that could be removed. The Judge himself reached Skipwith's Landing and came up on the Emperor.
