You might want to check a recent book: "Uncivil War: Five New Orleans Street Battles and the Rise and Fall of Radical Reconstruction" by James Keith Hogue, LSU Press, 2006. It covers the 1874 riot, among others. If your local library doesn't have it, then maybe you can get it on interlibrary loan. However, I can't say whether it has any lists of casualties since I haven't personally seen the book. A list of White League members and casualties was published shortly after the incident (1877, I believe). NOPD has a memorial list of those officers KIA but it only begins in 1890. I did a cursory search of the database "19th Century Newspapers" and found a few accounts of the action but no casualty lists. I know this isn't the answer you wanted but this quest might take some digging.
