Plan of our campaign in Missouri.

--The Rolla correspondent of the St. Louis Republican writes, under date of the 9th inst., as follows. We trust that he may be right in his conjecture:

The plans of the Confederates, as reported here, (and of course the reports are founded on nothing official,) are about as follows:

Price is to fight and conquer Fremont, driving him back to Jefferson City, and thence to St. Louis; McCulloch's forces are to march upon Rella; while Hardee or Pillow approach from Southeast Missouri. Having possession of the termini of the three railroads — the Pacific, Southwest Branch and Iron Mountain — the three armies are to proceed simultaneously to St. Louis, and take possession of that city. This plan is quite extensively laid, and looks quite plausible, if they had the power to carry it into effect.
