St. Louis, Sept. 14.
--Advices from North Missouri
, (through Northern sources,) state that since the withdrawal of the Federal
forces from St. Joseph
, the Secessionists of that region are arming again.
Some 2,000 are concentrated in Andrew county
, under Major Poller
, and about the same number of Unionists
, composed of Missourians and Iowans, under Colonels Croner
, are stationed in the same region, and both are preparing for a battle, which is shortly expected.
telegrams of yesterday announce that St. Joseph
is now completely in the hands of the Confederates
This news confirms the following:
, Sept. 12. --All we hear confirms the previous reports that the Secessionists have full possession of St. Joseph
and are doing pretty much as they please in that city.
It is reported that they have taken control of the municipal affairs of the corporation, preventing egress and ingress of both goods and travelers.
They have also levied heavy contributions on several stores, taking just what they want.
From all we can learn the Union
men and their property in St. Joseph
and the surrounding country are completely in the hands of the rebels, and demand the immediate interposition of the Federal
arms to save them from annihilation.
A Northern Rumor.
