The army Argus.

--We are indebted to the Hon. T. C. Johnson, late State Senator from the city of St. Louis, for a copy of the Missouri ‘"Army Argus,"’ a diminutive news sheet, published in the camp at Springfield. The paper is edited by J. W. Tucker, well known as the editor of the Missouri ‘"State journal, "’ a paper which exercised such great Southern influence in St. Louis, that it was suppressed by the Federal authorities and its editor driven away.

In his present enterprise, Mr. Tucker carries with him a traveling press and printer's establishment, all of which, on the march, is conveniently packed away in an ambulance.
