From Missouri — the Lincoln arms in Kentucky.

Louisville, Aug. 17.
--We have received no news from St. Louis to-day. The anxiety is intense, and the impression that Gen. Siegel's Federal forces have been cut off is gaining ground. Lack of pointed information as to his position, and the condition of his forces, confirms the suspicion that dispatches relative to his progress were pure fictions.

A committee of the citizens of Harrison county, Ky., to-day called on the President of the Covington and Kentucky Railroad Company, and protested against the transportation of Lincoln guns. If such work was continued, the citizens were determined to clear the track. Three cannon and several car-loads of guns and ammunition en route were returned to Covington.
