The truth at last, in spite of Fremont and the Yankee Newspapers.--McCulloch Victorious. When the Roman Consul Sempronius, was defeated, with the loss of half-his army at the Trebia, he retired to a strong town, many miles distant, with the remnant, and sent a dispatch to the Senate, in which he concealed his defeat, and represented himself as having fallen back to the point he then occupied merely for convenience. This tale was believed in Rome, until stragglers began to arrive from theo work at once to repair the evil.

Louisville, Aug. 17.--It is stated that Fremont's loan for a quarter of a million of dollars was forced. Depositors have been quietly drawing their money from the Banks.

The following is an extract from a letter dated St. Louis, Aug. 16th and from a perfectly reliable source: "Fremont is fortifying the envious. All information is suppressed. An employee on the railroad told a gentleman that he heard heavy firing, or cannonading in the direction of Rolla, but he would say nothing more; neither would he tell how far he came on the road, being sworn to communicate nothin
