Sevier left V--ra Cruz on the 8th inst.'for the city of Mexico, under the es cot of Cap'. Til-hmtian's com -:and, about sixiv s:rong. Capt. ilgtiman esaorte-l Satita Auni from Jalapa no Antigun. We learn fron Captain Auld. that Sata Anna did Cot saih 6i Wednesday, th 5th 5 int. From the Arco Iris we leartn that he took his passage on the Spanish brig Martino. Capt. AMilton arrived at Vera Cruz on the 5th inst. from the city of .lexico, with despatche frior- Wa.dington. le'report that ilt road was inafested with small baus of arncd neit, an-sed, whoco.mnit deprelations otn the road between Mexico and Jalapa, plundering the diligeatnes, &c. The.route between Mexico and Tolica is infested in like manner. Capi. Mlilton communicated the following information to the Free American, of the 6.h ibst : Iaving left the city of Mexico on Thurs day last, he met Major Cross four miles fromi Sana Martain, on his way to the cily of Mexico. - The Ohio Battalion will be stationed at Rio Frio.

Tihe Amnerican'Star of the 31st uit. thus annoutees the arrival of a smiall 'rai~n from Vera.Cruz : A small trair~ which left Vera Cruz on the 22-1 inst. escortedl by (60 -men of the Louisiana Dragoons all utnder commtandl of Lt. Col. Wilihamat II. Emeruy, arrived it this city yesterday evenaing, brmin~tg up a mai fur the army. Among the officenrs with the train are Lt. Col. Stanford, 8th Infantry, an-i M .tJ'r Cross.

Some tarty adventurus citizens accoma panied the train Duriog the week ending~ the 1st inst. thecre acre SD0 Deputies antI 19 Senators present at Q-teretarn. TIhe Monitor says it regniretd onily 15- more De puties and 3 Setntors to form a quiorum to proceed to business; but we regret to say that some members of. Contgress had left Queretaro tutder thte pretext of reluctance to vote for the ratification of the treaty. From the very eartlest and indigant manner in * ~ which the Star tmentions this subject, we inifer that the gravest apprehens~'ttms are enternatined lest a sutdicienat numrb.:r ofi the factious Deputies should writhdrmaw to pre vent the qurorumn from assembling. Opin ions area very various as to the probable ratific'ation) of tale treaty. 'the Star is urging upon the Mexicans the abasolute necessity of aiving; .it their saanetiont if they would preserve their naatioalty. Upon the whnilo we cannot but regard thae ratifica tion as at least problematical. abhough wo h"1ea fit' thr bes'. The newrs of the action of ;otr Suutate upont the treaty reatchaed Miexico at the end tat last month, and was despatehaed at nCo to Qaereturo. .Ihe Star announced it. on the 3:d. As the probable actiont of the Mexican Congress is just ntow engrossinag mauch attentloat, we give from thes Anmerican Star of the 4th ins'. a leading article Ont rne subject. The Treaty and the M'zcan Con;'ess, --The treaty havinag been adopted by thc constitutional authorities of the Utated States, it is now Mexicn's turnt to show . ' her head on this isnraOrt matter. Ah * eyes are. atnd will conatintle t.) be, directed taowtarls Q.eret ara, ta an ait the act on of thme Mexiecan Contgress. We sincerely *hope that the friends~ of peace will have ano reasona for disappoitmeflnt. We vanno0 believe that they will have. As wre re~ marked in a recent article, at as more fo; the interest of Mexico than of the Umited States that a treaty of peace should be ratified, atnd she shotuld not matke the very %light modificatt'o-s staid to ttave beent mald by the American Senate, any ground fa its rejection.

Let-thoi'eiVested:with the sover eiguty and legisladive'powersof ithe nation think wel! of .hi At our Isl advices from Q eretaro, tl:erc was a pro-pect of a speedy re union of the Mexican Congress. But a few triore Deputies are required ~to frm a 9tnorum, and lnoW th-t itte treaty is ratified by-tihe Gover-inct to whom it was sent, we think that fact an additional inducemet for the Deputies and Senators to come togeoher. It does not appear %% hether a c -m nissisn er or c-namissio:iers of the Uuited States will take the treaty ti Q eretaro, but I he moment it shall be olficasily announced to the Supreme Government, we shall looki Fir a quorum in Congress. We will not believe we can be disappdinted in this expectaiion. Io this event, the treaty will bo immediately corn muiceted to the Deputies and Senators by the President of the Republic, who %%ill probably aecompa. ny its transmission with atI executive mtessage. Discussion evill follow, and the detision to wh.cch mae:nhers m:av arrive, n% ill be onelof tratniceo.lent importance to tJte Republic of Mexico. No q-iestion of deeper interest has been submitted so her since her int.ependence. It will not do to blink it, or avoid meeting it. by refusing to attend at Queretaro. It most he met, too. by .us -y legislaors, who have a just ilea of the responsibility which rests upon them. God grant a prosperous issie! Ei President, Gen.

The Americar, troops, agreeably to orders, matched out at eight co'clock in the morning by the Peao gate, leaving only the proper gards. They remained till after the polls were closed at 3 o'clock. In Vera Cruz they had a report that the Mexicans took advantage of the withdrawal of the troops and lose and pronounced, it was "a weak invention," The Progress %of Queretaro publishes communications fron Darango which state that Governor Angel Trios, of Chi huahua, with some of his officers was taken prisoner on the 16th of March at Santa Cruz de Rosales by a body of Atmcricans proceeding frotm the camp at Buena Vista, The action at Rosailes began at 0 in the morning and lasted until night when the A.ncricas carried the plaza, by assault.

Unlike other meetings of the Gar ailn States, it was not brought togelier by imperial mandate, as an enmanation of royal grace or condes.cension. It did' not owe its birth to the vill or one mnan, who make fAr Germany a new redernl law in'1808-ihe conftderation of the Rhine. Nor did it owe its existence to the fiat of a Consress, which, like that of 1815, recon strucie.I ihe federil system of Ger,nany. uuder the name of the Ger nanic Confed eration. It wai the offiring of popular sovereignty, called in assem'de by a king. himself the or-an or that suvereigtv.

In every previous example of a Ger,nanic Diet, summoned to concentrate the the national will by a fundamental compact. its law has praved a nullity- its recommenndations have had no force-its voice has not been that of authority. Whethrr its decrees were di rocted against the arbitrary ordlinances of Elector if 1iesse-Cassel, or the fr.intic follies of the Duke of Brunswick, ii voice was that of impotence. The approaching Congress, bor.i or a popular movement, will assemble under the aspices of unfei tered liberty or debnte. as it must be marked by unusual breadth of delibera tion.
