Skirmishing in Missouri

ST. LOUIS, March 31. – Dispatches received at head quarters, say that on the night of the 26th between 500 and 800 rebels attacked four companies of State Militia at Humminsville, Polk county, and after a sharp fight they were defeated, with a loss of fifteen killed and a large number wounded.  The Federals had several wounded, but none seriously.
