Gen. Fremont attended service at Henry Ward Beecher's church, and the congregation rose en masse as the General and Mrs. Fremont entered. Mr. Beecher's discourse was on “Greatness.” After the service, the people made a rush for the General's pew, and detained him half an hour with hand-shaking; and when he was seated in his carriage, at the churchdoor, they crowded the street and gave him three cheers.
