What is '9150(and mqtt port)'?

Well, you need to tell mosquitto_pub to use the socks5 port that the
client side tor has, probably with --proxy socks5h://localhost:9150

And on the server side you need to have a HiddenServicePort directive
in the torrc that translates the port you give on -p to the actual
listener port of the MQTT server.
