The other objection to Fremont ad
dress! itself particularly to American.
It is alleged that he is a Roman Catholic. !
Tbe force of this objection depends up
on its truth or fal-ity. It is a simple
question of fact. The charge ori-inate 1
in the New York Express, and rested
! upon the declaration of A'derman Ful
mer, who eis that when at Brown's Ho
tri. in Washington, in the winter ol
I IBM, he row Col. Fremont worshipping
in a Citliolic Church; that ho convert d
with lhe Coloiu-l on lbs subject of reli
eion, and that he defended the estreme
doctrine of lhe Run sh Church. By r-f
erence to tho columns of the Paine Lx-prc.-s,
it ii shown that Col. Fremont was.
during all tbe time Alderman Fulmer lo
cates h'tn at Washington, on board of
ocean s'ea iner. An examination of the
register and cash books of Brown's Hotel
shows that Col. Fremont w:-.s not, during
the yea 1 s of 1859 and 1 853. at that hotel.
Here is conclusive, independent evidence
that Alderman Fulmer is mistaken
This testimony is confirmed by Col. Fre

children had Protestant baptism. Mr
Livingston, who whs Col. Fremont's
companion arrows ths Rocky Mountain,
says he curried with him a Protestant
potket Bible. He presented his wife
wiih a Proteranl prayer-hook before their
marriag. His preceptor Fays that he
received a rroiesiani euucanon. uoi.
Fremont says to everybody that enquires
of him, that ho is and ever has been a
Protestant. And yet, not only in the 1
nbst-nce of all testimony, but after every
allegation has been disproved, those who 1
fabricated continue to reiierate the false
hood, and I nm sorry to add that too
many Intelligent, honest electors, who J
would require better evidence to convict

that the Border i'liliim paity will do the

such a ticket tho Free State men have two
