[From the St Loulr Republican, May ZJ J Yesterday. Mr J McKnlght. a merchant of New Mexico, whore arrival at Independence we noticed rome days ago. reanhed thla city. Mr MeKnlght came Into the settlements with the party of United SUtea officers and others whose arrival we notlcad on Monday last, but he left Santa Fe five days later than they did. He la accompanied by Mr Owena. ofthiaclty. They made the trip through In twenty-five days A flairs were quiet in Santa Fi at the time of their ItikAVirtf? hilt, thra nnml>..?i * " " ' " ?D- ?- -uuiurt ui prrnuns iriea uy int court 9X Taos, and sentenced to be hung. had created a deep aad wide-spread sensation among the Mexicans, in every quarter, and particularly among the Puebla Indians ? t.lcven persons had bevn tried and convicted of high treason to the United States, and seuteticed to be hung. | The execution bad been carried into effrct on the I ltli of April, and before Mr. ileK left the Mexican settlements. Whilst be was at express arrived frem the leading men of Taos to the people of Vegan to hold themselves in readiness to msrrh to Taos, if they were needed. t'roui these and other circumstances, the opiniou wan general that there would lie another attempt at revolution. The alcalde, aud other leading men at Vegas, were attempting to keep down the spirit of revolution. ho exasperated are the feelings of the Indians i aud the Mexicans, that nothing but the presence of a | strong foroH can keep thirn down. i Mr. MoK represents the Camanche Indians as very hostile and troublesome to the traders and government trains lis gives us the suuie account tha we have heretofore published of their taking the horses and mules of Messrs. Wood aud Sanford. at the Caches, on the Arkansas This is near where the llnW-a government is putting up a depot, or station fort. The 1 lununcheg caine within fifty yards of the fort, aud drove the stock off in eight of the men. They also attacked Mr McK. and Mr. Owens, at Walnut Creek, tired upon them eeveral times, and succeeded in getting off two mules. It is their intention to attack nil parties which they think they are strong enough to rob. A short time ago. ? Mr. llrown. a Santa Fe trader, with a train of wagons, left the settlements for Santa Fc. Nothing definite had been heard from them, until the day our iuformaut left Indcpeudence lauding. That day ono of Mr. Brown's men came into independence, and gave the information, that, at the crossing of the Arkansas. the Camanches attacked Mr. Brown's party, which, being few in numbers, was not prepared for resistance; took from him all his mules and horses, aud about half his merchandize. We do not learn that any of the meu had been injured, but Mr. B's expedition must be materially injured, or totally destroyed by this rubbery. ANECDOTES OK OKI!HO OOKDO. [From the Now Orleans Picayune, May 19], Mr. Kendall, in one of his lust totters, relates several anecdotes, current in the army, which Illustrate particular portions of the action at Cerro (iordo, and give individuality to the parlies engaged in them It is not to be expected that a despatch, however elaborate, can embrace all, or indeed many, of the acts ot heroin m which contribute to the success of battle; and It is only in the w?r of anecdote and army gossip, which grow inta traditions that many of the most daring acts of chi vairy are prcservea. i no following rule tie guerre give* us to understand that Col. Harney la quito a* fertile In expedient. when need bn, an bold in action With the Hiflen. a portion of the lot Artillery and one company of the 7th Infantry, thin daubing officer had in thu morning driven the Mexican* from two hills which j were overlooked by their stroug work on Ceiro Oordo, but which were (till important. Thin had b< en effected" with groat lone, and no many had burn detailed to carry olT the wounded and take cure of the dead, that In the afternoon tho colonel found himnclf with but a mere handful of men. to protect nnd nuntain the ponitlon he had won with no much difficulty. Abont 0 o'clock in the afternoon the Mexican* made a tremendous dcinonxtration. as if to ret ok o the heights. Happening to lie in a valley directly between Col. Harney and Corro Oordo, whither a fuw of ui? had gone, under cover of the trees and brushwood, to obtain a good view of tho Mexican* n tho latter hill, we had a most excellent opportunity of seeing the whole movement. A furioua clung of trumpet* tint announced that thu enemy was in uioliou, and soon we could see a loug line of Infantry marchiug down the sleep hill side, uud making direetly for thu height now occupied by Colonel ll. and his small bnt gallant band. With such tremendous fury did the trumpeters blow their instrument*, that one WHIimt to thein wutild have thought that they alone w?re sufficient to drive every Yankee completely fr"m thu heroic and sacred soil of .Moxico. Onward still they came, and onward; louder caino the blasts from the trumpets, doubtless to give themselves oournge. as they neured the spot where tbuy knew they would meet with war to the death The position was all-Important tothent, and n hoet was on the way to attack ll. hoon they reached a spot almost within musket range, and while they lisd halted a moment to lorm. to recover their wind, and collect and strengthen their nerves for the coming struggle, Col. Harney improved llie occasion to play iff a regular trick upon iheui His men were partially concealed behind the brow of the hill, yet he himself was in plain view of the hostile host; and ' now lie commenced s harangue which would have served lor an army of dOOOO men, appoiuted every way with ciinnon. with cavalry, with murlara and with all the applniurm of war "Don't aho?t yet !" shouted be to his little bund and his lungs are none of the weakest; "wait till they come closer, nud then give theia h?ll ! Don't draw a trigger. I tell you?double churge those caunous, there, with grape and canister, and wait till 1 give the word. 1 don't want one id ihcui ever to get back alive!" In this strain he went on interlarding his battle speech with a few more ot the strongest kind of adjectives than I care About repeating. The effect was glorious Not a word of the harangue, which iiMght have been heard a mile, was lost upon tho .Mexicans, not a quarter of that distance off ; and as some of thein understood Hngliidi. and at once Interpreted the speech, especially about double loadiug the cannou with grape and canister, to the nomuiaudiug officer, lie very prudently wheeled hi* men and marched back tho way be came without tiring a gun! It is needless to say that Col Harney had nothing in ine suape 01 n cannon wiui mm ?u was ine strongest kind of a "bluff game" be won playing, and the ae<iutl allow* that ho won at it. iJuriiig the same afternoon l.iont. Ileno, with t wo of Talent t's mountain howitzer*, did not a little execution liy pitching grape and spherical case iuto the Mexicans The latter are most destructive. and after one or two doses of them had burst upon the retiring column of the enemy; it was noticed that their puce improved materially Oil the following day. at the storming of I'erro Uordo. the leading men of the dd and Ttli Intantry reached opposite aides of the eireular breastwork of brush the Mexicans had ereeted to protect their main fortification on the crest of the hill The enemy had all been driven with loss from this outer work, and the victors bad halted for a few moments to collect their breath and wait for those who were more exhausted to noma up, preparatory to the uiiiin attack upon tile stronghold. when Lieut, t'litr. of the 3d. saw some of the men of the other regiment clambering over the breastwork ''Hurra' 3d !"' he ejaculated; " over and at them, or tho 7th will be in first;" and tog?th?r the two gallant regiuicnta went at tho .Mexican* It I* necessary to ssy that from hi* position Lieut, ( was the tlr.-t to notice the movement of the 7th. It is raid that ' apt tb-xander of the 3d. killed two or three Mexican* himself with one of Colt's repeater*. and that Lieut. (S W. Smith, who commanded a company of engineers at the storming of the same place, signalised himself moat gallantly, as did also Lieut iluell of the 3d Infantry. Well did both the 3d and 7th sustain their previous high reputation in this trying action, and I trust that all our readers may read the official reports of their dsriug deeds of valor. One more anecdote which Is current about town, and I have done for to-day. In one of the religious establishments of this city, and in a portion of it from whlnh it Is said females are most scrupulously excluded, a number of our wounded hrve been taken, among them An Irishman. a catholic who has a wife of the same persuasion The latter, anxious for her husband's well-being, on her arrival after the regiment, sought hitn out. and just as she had ascertained hi* quarter*, and was about entering them, she was accidentally met by a priest, lie at once, probably shocked at seeing a female entering prohibited ground, placed his haod gently upon her shoulder to arrest her progress, and pointing the other way. ejaculated " l amoi" literally " let ua go ." 'I he good woman not knowing him. ami conceiving his intention* any thing but honorable, fill to and gave the holy father a most unmerciful thrashing upon the spot, using both hands and feet iu the strange encounter; and the more he shouted tliw more she kicked and puuielled. Such is the story. Alt M V MOVEMENTS. |Krom the New Orleans Delta, May 3'2.] The ship Henry Pratt. Capt.

Inauguration of the Fruition Diet?Dilappointmen! of the People?Discussion* on the A'ing's Speech?The 1 - llreulf-*Materirl'of,the-Statei Ventral?Famine Riot, 4"r-> The Inauguration of the Prussian Diet took place on the 11th of this month, with all the pomp und ceremony befitting the commencement of so momentous an era iu tile national history. Tho royal speech has probably reached you before this, through the medium of the 'Hints or the Journal drt Debate, and its perusal will have prepared you for my stating that it sat far from giving universal satisfaction. it showed in fact still more plainly than the decrees or letters patent of the 3d of February, the slender grasp of the concessions accorded to the representatives of thu people, aud the circumscribed sphere of action showed thcui. tvery precaution was taken to impress them with the idea that Prussia was to ountinue an abmilute monarchy; that all the authority and power of government was to remain concentrated In the portion of the king and his ministers, nnd that no political rights were to be allowed the assembly, but the [tour privilege of advice and pelltiou.? You may imagine the sensation excited l>y such an announcement. nut! the sudden damp that fell upon (be high wrought expectations of the public, homo of the deputies, it is said, were for leaving the city iminedlali ly aud returning to their ualive provinces; fortunately, however, more moderate counsels prevailed, and without refusing the imperfect boon granted, they resolved upon mailing a mucu for ut Past a portion ot tho rights denied them Minec then, prospects have been gradually brightenfug. Au address, ostensibly of thauks. but lu reality of reinuostrsnoe. being proposed in answer to the king'* speech, the discussions that ensued were conducted willi a spirit, and displayed a d. gree of eloqueuce and parliamentary tact, very creditable to so inexperienced a body of delegates; nod although the original tenor of lheaddre?s wan ili/btly altered. tUu expression* of disaant modified, and a hanb word or two cancelled. anuugli remained to prove tliut th? unumtly. or at least a uiajorily of lta members. *nr? animated with a seriou.sause of their duties towards the country, and not disponed to shrink front tliwir responsibility. The king * reply whs in ore favorable than might have been anticipated. He persisted indeed in derlaring that the State* General had no right* but aurli a* were greats d by hi* latter* patent and reiterated hi* determination to insiutaln the prerogative)! of the crown unimpaired, without however, Blunting the door against all further reviial of tha present institution*?nay, ho even intimated in plain terui*, that they were uot to bo considered a* llnal. but open to future improvement and extension. Of (till greater Importance was hi* promising to couvolte the Diet again at au early date, without waiting till financial consideration* should render It ueecesary. Altogether the tone of this document is so conciliatory, so different from that of the opening speech, as to make it clearly evident that the proceeding* of this new Hedged meeting, embodyiug as they do the first manifestation* of constitutional lite in Prussia, have not failed in produelngtheir due effect upon the royal miuil. Tha .State* General at e composed of very different materials to au American congress, or an Kiiglish parliament.

Nor conld a more pleasant sail in- desired than that which the passenger lor 8t. Thomas enjoys, as his vessel "oasts along this chain of islands, of a delightful summer-like afternoon or morning, the balmy trade winds blowing gently, just filling the spread anils, and raising a slight ripple on the placid surface of this summer sea. which now rather resembled a quiet lake than the uiighty aud heaving ocean. And now, as the voyager is borne along off the shore off the little Da nish island of St. Johns. he fur the first time discovers signs of fertility and cultivation. In the occasional green I spots that pri-nvnt themselves along the shore. and In the I valley* or rather gorges between the h'gh hill* that riae abruptly In thu back grouud. and which the glaaa shows to bo field* of sugar cane, and also discloses to view the neat and surluded habitations nf the planters How happy, he Is ready to exclaim? still weak and feeble perhaps from the lingering effects of eea sickness?must bs the dwellers within these quiet abodes thus secluded from the noise and strife of the world.
