Condition of Missouri. --It is pretty certain that B. McCulloch is making his way to Missouri to maintain the State-Rights party of that State. A letter from St. Louis, to a Memphis, Tennessee, house, dated the 21st June, gives the following gloomy view of the state of affairs. McCulloch will not arrive too soon. We doubt not Tennessee will come up to the rescue in good time. Kentucky, too, will be on hand: Things are hard here at present, the "Hessians" having full sway. Why donur people send us some troops to help us to clean them out? We have the disposition but not the arms to do it. Large numbers of dead Dutch are arriving here daily from South-Western Missouri, although the fact is denied. It is reported that Ben. McCulloch has been cutting Gratz Brown's regiment to pieces somewhere on the South-West branch of the Pacific railroad. The State troops have had a fight with the Hessians at Boonville — the Missourians to the number of 300 making an attack on a w

He will return here at a specified time — say two or three weeks hence. Gen. McCulloch also had an interview with Mr. Ross. I was not present, but suppose it was agreeable to both parties. At least, I hear no complaint on our side. Col. Mark Bean, of Cane Hill, accompanied Capt. Pike to this place, and was present at the conference yesterday. I believe he returns with confidence in the friendly disposition of the Chief.
