St. Louis Lies --Reported Death of Ben. McCulloch, &c.-- A letter written by a Lincoln correspondent from Missouri, says: A well informed gentleman at Rolla, states there is reliable news there that Gen. Ben. McCulloch did die at Fayetteville of the wound he received at the battle of Springfield.

This plan is quite extensively laid, and looks quite plausible, if they had the power to carry it into effect.
