New Orleans, Jan. 27


On Tuesday we celebrated, in as splendid a manner as possible, our victory and the defeat of the enemy, by the performance of the Catholic religious ceremony of TeDeum, at which General Jackson assisted; and a procession of ladies honoured him with a triumphant arch erected in the square in front of the church, through which he had to pass in his way to the city, where he was received by the city volunteer corps and 18 virgins, representing the 18 states and in passing under the arch he was crowned by two infants representing the goddess of Liberty and Justice. The remainder of the day was spent in hilarity, and in the evening an allumination and public balls took place.
