SAINT Louis, Mo., August 1, 1862 4:25 p.m.

 Major-General HALLECK,  Commander-in-Chief:

There seems no doubt that the enemy in force is about entering Missouri near Forsyth. General Brown has withdrawn his troops from Cassville and is concentrating at Springfield. I am informed General Curtis is still at Helena, waiting for boats to take him up the Arkansas River. The rebels are rising all over Missouri, and will give me quite as much as I can attend to, without having to meet an invasion from Kansas.
