President Lincoln Says--The Washington correspondent of the Philadelphia Enquirer, writing under date of the 30th ult., says: ‘ Gen. Fremont is looked for here daily. It is understood that a statement has been prepared of his whole movements, from the day that he was first asked to go West. It is a terrible expose of several men in high position, and completely refutes the many charges put in circulation as to the real cause of his removal. An effort will be made to prevent any further agitation of the subject at present, on the grounds that it would be inimical to the interests of the country. It may be that he will keep quiet for the present, but sooner or later the matter will be fully and freely ventilated. We learn from a reliable source, the President said to a gentleman the other day "that some of his Cabinet had urged him to take the step, and now wished to escape the responsibility of it." ’
