General Reid, of Missouri. --The sons of Virginia are rallying everywhere to the standard of the South. General John W. Reid, of Missouri, it is announced, is raising a regiment to join McCulloch and Price. Gen. R. is a native of Virginia — a son, we think, of Rev. W. S. Reid, of Lynchburg, and a nephew of Hon. A. W.

To put an end to all speculation on the subject of the funds of the Farmers' Bank, at Lexington, Mo., the St. Louis Republican is authorized to state, by a gentleman who was a witness of the transaction, that, after the surrender of the Federal troops at Lexington, the money committed to the charge of Col.
