St. Louis, Aug. 17.
--A messenger from Gen. Siegel reports him fifteen miles this side of Rolla. He had not been molested.

A New York Catholic Priest has been taken to a police station by a party of Dutchmen, who declared that he was a Secession Prest. He was confined in jail.

Louisville, Aug. 17.--It is stated that Fremont's loan for a quarter of a million of dollars was forced. Depositors have been quietly drawing their money from the Banks.

The St. Louis Democrat, of yesterday, expresses its assurance that Gen. Siegel's troops are safe. Another report says that he has only six hundred troops with him, as the other portion was cut off.

The following is an extract from a letter dated St. Louis, Aug. 16th and from a perfectly reliable source:

‘ "Fremont is fortifying the envious. All information is suppressed. An employee on the railroad told a gentleman that he heard heavy firing, or cannonading in the direction of Rolla, but he would say nothing more; neither would he tell how far he came on the road, being sworn to communicate nothing on such subjects. There is scarcely a doubt but that Roma is in Gen. Hardee's possession."
