St. Louis, Nov. 4.
--A special dispatch to the Republican,
of this city, dated at Springfield
, October 31st, says that a good deal of excitement has prevailed for some days respecting the report of Gen. Fremont
advices from headquarters mention nothing of the kind.
It is certain that Gen. Fremont
's removal would cause no little commotion in his camps.
A number of officers declare they would resign in that event, or insist on creating him Director
of the Southwest
, independent of the Lincoln Administration
, the latter being bitterly denounced in the camps, as vacillating and injudicious in its orders to the Western Department.
