Missouri Affairs — Dreadful steamboat Disaster.

St. Louis,May 21st.--Generals Price and

Harney have agreed upon a plan for the maintenance of peace and the avoidance of future conflicts between the Federal and State Governments.

Gen. Price pledges the whole power of the State to maintain order among the people, and Gen. Harney declares that this being answered, he has no wish to make any further military movements in the State. They mutually enjoin upon the people to attend to their civil business, and express the hope that the elements which have so seriously threatened the public peace will soon subside.

The steamer Kentucky, the mail boat between Memphis and Vicksburg, exploded her boilers yesterday, and twenty lives were lost.

The Confederate authorities have established a blockade at Memphis.
