Movements in Missouri.

Springfield, Mo., Aug. 8
--Much alarm is felt in consequence of reports that the Southerners are flanking the city. Stores are closed, citizens are gathering their valuables, and the State Bank has placed its specie in charge of Gen. Lyon.

At Potosi, Mo., about one hundred Secessionists dashed through the town and killed a large number of the Home Guard, and only losing two of their own men.

Eleven hundred Southerners are at a point 30 miles below here.

St. Louis, Aug. 10--It is reliably stated that Jeff Thomas is hovering in the immediate vicinity of Cape Girardeau.
