Gen. Fremont.

--Nothing is more pleasing to a generous mind than to make amends for an set of injustice. It has been intimated in this paper that Gen. Fremont was deficient in the cardinal quality of a soldier — courage Events have proved that this was an unfounded imputation. We observe with pleasure, since it appeared, that Gen. Fremont has challenged a member of a church.

Nothing could be more heroical and chivalries no act could give us clearer comprehension of Gen. Fremont than this act. With such a field as Missouri affords of locking horns with acknowledged fighting men. Gen. Fremont es into the first ‘"Christian"’ he can find, and backs him out quicker an lightning. It was a wonderful feat, and one which cavaliers of the Fremont order especially glory in. He need not lament now that Lincoln has recalled him to Washington. He has performed a deed which will give him a place in history, and prove that he is a worthy son of an illustrious sire.
