From Missouri.

The Test Oath.

The St. Louis News, September 5th, says:

The sixty days' period allowed for filing the Test Oath expires to-day. Ministers can file it at any time hereafter if they decide to do so, but they are forbidden to "preach or teach" from this day, until they do file it. Up to yesterday only about one-fourth of the priests and clergymen in St. Louis had taken it. In this number are Bishop Hawks and Rev. M. Schuyler, of the Episcopal Church; Rev. A. C. George and Henry Cox, of the Methodist Episcopal Church; Rev. S. J. Nicholls, of the Second Presbyterian Church; Rev. A. A. Kendrick, Rev. J. V. Schofield, Rev. A. C. Osborne, Rev. G. S. Gubelmaun and Rev. J. F. Boulden (colored), of the Baptist Church; Rev. T. H. Post, of the Congregational Church, and Rev. Wm. Eliot, of the Unitarian Church. No priest or bishop of the Catholic Church; no Minister of the Methodist Church South, or of the Christian Church, has yet taken it. We learn from the Republican that the thirteenth annual meeting of the General Association of Missouri was held in Booneville on the 19th and 21st ult. About fifty members were present, and agreed to decline taking the oath required of ministers and teachers by the new constitution.
