A good joke on Fremont.

--A gentleman who had returned to Arkansas from a visit to St. Louis, communicates to an Arkansas paper a good joke on General Fremont, who, it seems, got up, mounted and equipped a body of troops as a special body guard; their horses were superior, and their arms and appointments of the finest description. He was proud of it. It was to be his pet. But one day this fine body went out to perform sundry evolutions at about two miles from the city, and they never came back. They were last heard of in General Hardee's camp, where they accidentally found their way, If any one wants to see Fremont mad, it is only necessary to mention body guard to his presence.
