FORT LEAVENWORTH, June 16, 1864.
Saint Louis, Mo.:
Since my morning report, I have intelligence of 400 rebels having crossed the Missouri north last Friday at Wellington. They also use the crossing at Blue Mills. My informant is an intelligent Missourian, and thinks Quantrill with at least a thousand bushwhackers is lurking between Platte and Clay, not far from Ridgeley.
