Fillibustering Expedition Against Costa Rica.

ST. LOUIS, Thursday, April 2.

Rumor says that one hundred and fifty Fillibusters, commanded by the son of one of our merchants, are about to leave this city to form an expedition, shortly to sail from New Orleans, destined to invade Costa Rica, and thus relieve Gen. WALKER by diverting the attention of his enemies to another point. Abundant means are said to be at the disposal of this expedition.
