St. Louis, Oct. 17. --The Republican, of to-day, announces the capture of the Federal Guard at the Big River Bridge, on the St. Louis and Ironton Railway, and the burning of the Bridge by Gen. Jeff. Thompson, thus cutting off all communication between St. Louis and Pilot Knob, and Ironton. This information was given to the publisher of the Republican by Capt. Elliott, who commanded the Federal Guard, and was released, with his men, on parole. At last advices, Gen. Thompson was marching towards Ironton. A dispatch in the Republican, dated at Syracuse, Mo., on the 16th instant, says it was rumored that Adjutant General Thomas was recently challenged by Gen. Fremont at Tipton, because he believed that Thomas was the source of many of the gross misrepresentations against him. Adjutant General Thomas declined the invitation to a duel, on the ground that he belonged to a church.
