The War in Missouri.

--A Federal telegram from Rolls, Mo., says that a train of seventeen wagons, which left that place a few days ago, la with Government stores, was overtaken when about twenty miles outs on the Springfield road, by a band of rebel guerrillas, who burns the wagons and contents, and carried off all the mules, eighty six in number. We learn by a dispatch from Jefferson City that the following Confederate officers have been captured by Brig, Gen. Totten, while they were about crossing the Missouri river in the vicinity of that city.

Lieut. Col. Melany, judge advocate of the second division of the Missouri State Guard, and a member of Gen. Harris's stuff; Lieut. Col. Rawlings commanding a battery of the second division formerly paymaster on General Parson's staff; Lieut. Col. Thurman, paymaster in the fifth division; Lieut Col. Davis, judge advocate of the fifth division, and a member of Gen. Steer's staff. These men are said to be emissaries from the rebel army, and were on a mission to up a rebellion in Missouri. They will be sent to St. Louis and committed to prison.
