Affairs in Missouri.

The recent brilliant successes of the Confederate troops in Missouri have electrified every true Southern heart. Never has a State been more cruelly oppressed and treated; never in America have any but the Indians perpetrated such inhuman butcheries as those in St. Louis, in which innocent citizens, and actually women and children, were shot down in cold blood by the myrmidons of Gen. Lyon and Gen. Siegel, the first of whom has happily been sent to his account. 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 hope that Maryland will not be far behind.
