Missouri affairs.

Under the telegraph head we publish this morning some interesting news from Missouri. The telegraphs with reference to General Price's movements we find corroborated, to some extent, by the following paragraph, which we extract from the telegraph column of the Baltimore American, of the 26th November.

Gen. Price advancing.

Syracuse, Mo., Nov. 25.
--Intelligence received here to-day, from parties direct from Osceola, is to the effect that Price's army crossed the Osage river at Hoffman's Ferry on Friday last, and his advance guard would reach Osceola on the following day.

We find also the following in the same column of the American. It shows a disposition on the part of the Missouri patriots to make the condition of the Federalists as uncomfortable as possible:

Burning of Warsaw.

Tipton, Mo., November 24.
--The burning of the principal part of the town of Warsaw is confirmed by a gentleman who arrived from that vicinity this evening. The main business portion of the town, consisting of one large brock and several smaller ones, were in flames when the gentleman left. The town being scattered, it is probable that nearly all the residents escaped.

The quartermaster and commissary departments were located in the large brock, but the greatest edition of the Government stores had been removed. The fire was supposed to be the work of the Secessionists. The troops that were there at the time were on the march to Sedalia, and left the morning after the fire, which occurred on Thursday.


Sedalia, Nov. 24.
--The town was fired about six o'clock P. M. on Thursday. All the business portion of the town is in ashes. The troops which were stationed there left about eight o'clock P. M., and are now here. A portion of the commissary stores, for which we had no transportation, were burned by order of the officer in command. It is thought by the officer in command that the town by was fired by the citizens, as a man in citizens dress was seen coming from the building in which the fire first commenced.

We have received Northern papers as late as the 29th ult., out we find nothing further with regard to affairs in Missouri.
