Ru -sell's residence i- at Ilarrisonville, Ca-s _ Co., Mo.; but lam informed that he is at present in Baltimore on a visit. e Col. Ru-sell is a man who trill gav what he hot • said: and he has said to me that Col. Fremont was a o Catholic when he was in California. 1 spent an e j vening with Cut. R. at Brown's Hotel two or three weeks ago, and knowing that he had been much with Col. F. in California, and or. very intimate terms e with him, I asked him it he knew anything ot Col. - Fremont's religious views at that time ? He replied that he did; that he was with him a great deal, and in tact might -ay that he had slept under the same blanket with him for eight months. 1 then asked ? him what Col. F. was? He replied, a Catholic. I t asked him if he was sure of this ? "Perfectly," - be said; and then added, li C'ot, Rretnont won't deny that he was a Cuthohc 1 every hody there so understood ' tt, and he made no secret of it A' Further conversation occurred between us on the subject, but this i- the sum and sub-tanee of it. I a-ked him if I might refer to this conversation and use his name? He replied, "certainly; you are at liberty to do so." But he again said. --COL. FRE MONT WILL NOT DENY THAT HE WAS A CATHOLIC." Col. Ru-sell, you may not be aware, was Col. 5 Fremont's principal witness on his trial before the . C onrt Marshal. Should Col. Fremont deny over bis own s'gnature that he was a Catholic when in Cali fornia. I presume Col. Russell will then speak for himself. Col. R. is an obi. ardent, personal friend of Henrv Clay, with whose family his own is connected, his - daughter having married Mr. Clay's grandson. J am, ver) truly, Your obedient servant, N. SARGENT. From the Daily News Aug. 23. FREMONT'S CATHOLICISM has now been so tightly . fastened upon him by the most indisputable testimo . nv, that we can scarcely find one of his friends po ( -"S-ing the boldness and effrontery to deny it. At fir.t, fits friends were vociferous and indignant; but ( now they are meek and humble, anil hope to see the subject ignored or forgotten.

All other compounds or syrups of the root, have hitherto failed to command the sanction ot the fac ulty, because, on being tested, they have Leer* found to contain noxious ingredients which neutralize the i good effects of the Sar-apanlla, and often tinie s in jure the health of the patient, it is not so with lluiley's preparation. This is the pure and genuine extract of the roof.
