From Missouri.
the Confederates at St. Joseph.

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 and Andrews, are stationed in the same region, and both are preparing for a battle, which is shortly expected.

Washington telegrams of yesterday announce that St. Joseph is now completely in the hands of the Confederates. This news confirms the following:

Hannibal, Mo., 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.

St. Louis. Sept. 14.
--Tom Harris, with 1,000 men, crossed the Missouri river at Artien crook on Tuesday last, bound for Price's army. Six hundred Secessionists, under Col. Hull, were marching towards Glasgow on Wednesday to cross the river and join Martin Green. The rebel camp at Deck creek, in Monroe county, was broken up by the Federals on Sunday last, and it is reported that 300 rebels were captured. Another rebel camp was broken up at Spenceburg, Parke county, on Monday, and sixteen prisoners were taken.


Jefferson City, Mo., Sept. 14.
--A special to the Republican says the steamer Sioux City, just arrived from above there, brings the intelligence that the fight at Boonville, yesterday morning, terminated in a complete victory to the Home Guards, under Maj. Eppestorin, who held the entrenchments. The rebels, 1,000 strong, were driven back, and were in the neighborhood of Boonville when the Sioux City passed. The Guards lost one killed and four wounded. The rebels lost twelve killed and thirty wounded. Among the killed were Col. Brown and Capt. Brown. A small detachment of Federal troops on the Sioux City had an engagement with Green's forces at Glasgow, of half an hour's duration when a battery of three guns opened on the boat, and they returned without loss.
