Gov. Jackson is expected to return soon, and Southwestern Missouri will be disenthralled in a few weeks. There are certain movements in actual operation or contemplated, that we do not deem it advisable to no ice now; but we feel assured that there will be sharp work there soon.-- Gen. McCulloch has had a severe task and has acted with his accustomed energy. In this he has been ably seconded by his officers, and especially by Quartermaster General Clarke. With volunteers, all eager to fight, but undrilled; with but it the specie and a vast outlay to make, McCulloch has had to work hard. He has overcome these obstacles, and when he once takes the field will keep the enemy busy. Gen Hardee is at his post and will soon commence operations. With such officers and such men as they command, we need have no fears of the result. ’
