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.
