News from the Southwest Confirmed.

--A drummer named John O'Neil, attached to Col. Seigle's command, arrived in town yesterday, who confirms our account of yesterday, in regard to the taking of Seigle's command by the State troops. He says that he ran six miles under the hottest kind of a fire, and finally escaped by getting clear of his comrades. He does not know how many of them were killed and wounded, but does not feel induced to visit that section of the country again with the same kind of soldiers. His comrade, a lifer, named Kelly, was killed at Boonville.-- St. Louis Morning Herald.
