From New-Orleans


At length we have received the Mail from New-Orleans, due on Saturday last which has afforded us the highly interesting information contained in the following extracts.
This day we expect a mail which is to announce the triumph justly due to the patriotism of the Louisianans and their brave fellow-citizens from Tennessee and Kentucky; or to confirm the awful apprehensions which we entertain for the ultimate safety of that highly important section of the Union.
Betide it what may, the people of Louisianna, have already shewn a noble which would grace the character of older states in the Union. They have, besides, a commander in whom they place the utmost possible confidence, and whose military character entitles him to all the confidence they can repose in him. If the enemy do succeed, Jackson will sell them the dearest victory they ever purchased against any thing like equal force: if they fail in their attempt, the commander with forces which defeat their object will merit the highest plaudits of a grateful country.
