It is evident, even from the Federal accounts, that Gen. McCulloch has gained a magnificent victory.-- We fervently hope that he will be able to push on to St. Louis and to drive into the river every one of the scoundrels who has been engaged in, or connived at, the horrible massacre of the Innocents in that city. We long for that time to come. We know that McCulloch is as brave and energetic a chieftain as ever lived; but whoever thinks that he is ambitions of a reputation for false philanthropy, will find their mistake before long. The Avenger of Blood is on the heels of those ruffians in Missouri, and we trust will be are long in Maryland also, and then the long arrears will be paid. Oh, for that precious hour of a people's deliverance! We are sure it is at hand in Missouri. We fervently

General Lyon was killed. Six cannon were taken, besides a large amount of stores, wagons, &c., &c. The Federal rout was complete. Generals McCulloch and Price were in hot pursuit of the enemy, and they entertained confident hopes of capturing the whole of General Siegel's command.--Generals Hardee and Jeff. Thompson are moving to the northeast with a view of cutting off General Siegel's retreat towards St Louis.

The messenger also states that the whole number of killed, wounded and missing on the Federal side, don't exceed 400, and that Gen. Ben. McCulloch and a number of Confederate officers were killed. [The Federal statement of their less is probably a falsehood. With regard to the death of Gen. McCulloch and the loss of the Confederate forces, it is a mere assertion of the correspoGen. McCulloch and the loss of the Confederate forces, it is a mere assertion of the correspondent of the Northern Associated Press] From Fortress Monroe. Fortress Monroe, August 15. --The steamers Adelaide and George Peabody have arrived at Old Point, and will leave shortly on an important expedition. The rumored presence of a privateer in the Chesapeake was one of our vessels, belonging to Lieut. Crosby's expedition to the Eastern Shore.
