Arrived at this place on the 28th ult.  Mr. Roosevelt’s steam-boat New Orleans—we are informed she is intended as a packet boat between Natchez and New Orleans; her burthen is 405 tons, and can accommodate from 60 to 80 cabin and steerage passengers, in a style not inferior to any packet in the Union.  She arrived at this place in 64 hours sailing from Pittsburg.  Frequent experiments of her performance have been made against the current since her arrival; in the presence of a number of respectable gentlemen, who have ascertained with certainty she runs thirteen miles in two hours and a half.
