The Trans-Mississippi.

Our latest advices from the other side of the Mississippi river would seem to represent that the Confederates are having all their own way in that department. A force of twenty thousand cavalry, under General Wharton, are said to have moved into Missouri, while Gen. Shelby, with twenty-five hundred men, is already in the State, and Gen. Price was hastening on with the artillery and infantry to the same destination. This is a movement we have anticipated ever since the defeat of Banks and Stecle, and we doubt not that Gen. Price is going into Missouri with the intention of staying there. He will no doubt be enabled to add greatly to the strength of his army in that State, and St. Louis will hardly be considered safe while he is in its vicinity with so formidable a force.
