St. Louis Lies

--Reported Death of Ben. McCulloch, &c.-- A letter written by a Lincoln correspondent from Missouri, says:

‘ A well informed gentleman at Rolla, states there is reliable news there that Gen. Ben. McCulloch did die at Fayetteville of the wound he received at the battle of Springfield. He neglected proper medical treatment, saying no Dutchman could kill him.-- This news come from several sources in the Southwest, and is also brought by men who have just arrived from Arkansas. The report is current and believed at Springfield.

There are but few rebel troops in the Southwest.

The Secessionists at Springfield, after the receipt of the news of the attack of Osceola and its burning by Col. Montgomery, were in great fright, and loaded their wagons for flight, as it was there reported that Montgomery was on his march from Osceola to attack Springfield.

But few if any troops from Arkansas are now in Missouri. They were generally received for three months, and when their term of service expired, they returned to their homes.

Col. Churchill, of that State, with his regiment and other troops, were recently at Camp Walker, near Maysville, Arkansas.--We learn there are about five thousand troops at that camp.
