SCOTT'S PROU TO TUB CAn.
TBB PAnTlite) SCENB.
After the President read to Gen. Scott blc
letter, the wax-worn veteran rose, and addrese'
the President andCabloct.wbo had also risen,
aa followa :
" Pmsidcst : This hoar overwhelms me. J
overpays all services I have attempted to ren
der to my country. If I had any claims belore,
they are all obliterated by this expression of
approval by the President, with Ihe remaining
support of his Cabinet. I know the President
and this Cabinet well. I know that the conn
try has placed Jta Interests In this trying crisis
In safe keeping. Their counsels are wise :
their labors are ma untiring as they arc loyal,
and their course is the rlgbt one.
" President, you must excuse me. I am
unable to stand longer to give utteranco to the
feelings of gratitude which oppress me. 11
my retirement I shall offer up my prayers to
God for this Administration and for my coun
try. I shall pray for It with confidence In Its
success over all enemies, and that speedily."
The President then took leave of Gen. Scott
giving him his hand, and Baying he hoped soon
to write him a private letter expressive of hi.
gratitude and affection. The President added :
"Gfxeral: You will naturally feel solid
tude about the gentlemen T your staff, who
have rendered you and their country such
faithful service. I have taken that subject
into consideration. I nnders'and that they go
with you to New York. I shall desire them at
their earliest convenience, after their return
to make their wishes known to me. I desire
you now, however, to be satisfied that, except
the unavoidable privation of your conns?!, and
society, which they have so long enjoyed, the
provision which will bo nude for them will be
such as to render their situation hereafter n
agreeable as It has been heretofore."
Each member of the Administration theu
gave his hand to the veterau nnd retired in
profound silence. -
In The money article of Ihe Now York TWo
uue of last Friday, wo And Ihe fallowings
" The Bank Committee having In charge the
matter of the third fifty millions of the National
loan have had several meetings, and, In an'un
oTflolal way.'have hM'commonlcatlon with the
Secretary of.the Treasury on the subject. No
decisive acMan. however, haslbeen had, but II
is understood that they are; wining so assume

have the optlph t Kftenocfc authorized by the
Loan act to be Issued at 7 per cent, at pr
This loan could be placed at on?e, without dim
cnlty, with foreign capitalists, at a small com
mission, but the banks claim the option of tak
ing It on the ground that they have taken so
si large a load of Treasury notes, upon which
there Is no profit."
The New York banks, as the world goes, may
lw expected to take all they can get from the
Secretary of the Treasury, or from any body
ele. But it does not strike us that those who
btrc taken one loan at the very high rate of
interest of seven and three-tenths per cent.,
have any particular ground to claim a bonus
in the shape of an option to take another hun
dred million loan at seven per cent. Interest, at
The New York Evening Post stated sev
eraldiys ago, that this hundred million loan
of which Congress has axed seven per cent. In
terest as the maximum, was offered to be taken
hy foreign capitalists at six and a half per
cntum. And whether such an offer has actu
ally been made, or not, we bellero that the
Government can borrow all It needs, not at
six and a half per cent, but at six per cent.
V ore perfectly prepared far that 3ema
gogue clamor of m?n who wish to fleece the
public under patriotic pretences, that It is best
to negotiate our public loans at home, and not
to allow forelgneis to participate In them. To
say nothing of the doubt, whether it Is not
advisable to Interest foreign capitalists In the
preservation of onr Government, by allowing
them to become the takers of a part of onr
loans, it is a sufficient answer to all that Is said
about foreigners, to observe that It is Imponl
ble to prevent their participation In our loans.
If coofiaed In terms to our own citizens, they
o in bo tsken by foreigners in the names of
citizens. Money Is the most cosmopolitan
thing In the world. The bankers or New York
are, many of tbem. the agents of foreign bank
ers, and can sub'crlbe in their own names, for
the Investments of Ihe funds of their principals.
It is in this way that the seven and three tenths

C0REE8P0HDKNCK BETWEEN DB. BAXEtt
AND LIEUT." COt. COLBURN.
Wo understand that correspondence on Ihe
subject of Colonel Baker's military conduct
has taken place between Ur. Baker, a urotner
of the lamented hero, aud, Lieut. Colonel Col
burn, of General MoOleilan.'s' staff.
It appears that on the 30th ult , Dr. Baker,
Addressed a note to Colonel Colburn, calling
bis attention to, an atticlo In the Washington
Slur. In which It Is staled on the authority nl
Colonel Colburn, that the disastrous result of
Ihe lalo battlo at' Ball's Bluff, was a dlre;l
consequence of Ihe disobedience of orders by
Colonel Baker, who commanded In that ao
tlon. The Dr. siys that he is warranted In
believing that tba natural concern which he Is
e ltltled to have In the reputation of his brother,
will Indnco Colonel Colburn to enable htm,
(Dr. B ,) as soon as possible, to have Colonel
Colburn's nime withdrawn from the injurious
attack" upon the memory of the elec-ased j and
In this connection, he names George Wilkes,
E'q., as the proper medium of communlca'ion.
To th's, Colonel Colburn replied (on Ihe 1st
Instant) that he had notieen the article referred
to In the Star, and regrets that his name whs
mentioned in connection with' it. He says,
however, that he did make a statement to per
sons connected with tha press, Including the
editor of the Slat, and that the statement was
made Irom information received from General
Stone and others, llo then repeats what he did
say upon that occasion, and adds, that he rpoke
in the highest term of Colonel Baker, and all
the officers and men engaged, and says any
thing different from this, In that paper, mut
have come from some other source, and ex
presses a regret that his name should be con
nected with any publication at nil unpleasant
to any Irieud of a brave soldier who has fallen
In reply to this, Dr. Baker says thai, inas
much as the name of Gen. Stone has been
given as the source of the main statement In
relation to Col. Baker, bo docs not know that
he bos anything further to request of Col. Col
burne, and closes tho correspondence by re
marking that, Inasmuch as the main statement
did not appear lu Gen. Stone's official vport,
he must conclude that Gen. Stone has nicer
taiaed that ne was in error in relation to It ;
and that Col. Baker fell, not only lu ample ful
filment of his duty, but in the strict perform
ance of orders.
THE NAVAL EXPKOITION.
Wo have good reasons for believing that the
accounts In the New York papers greatly ex
aggcrated the magnitude or the expedition
which left Hampton Roads last week. Ihe
number of ships not more than half of what
has been represented, and we doubt if the num
ber of soldiers taken on board exceeded fifteen
thousand. If we are correct in this, no attack
can be Intended open New Orleans, or any other
place capable of a strong resistance, but only
such a lodgement upon some part or the South
ern coast as may be made the base of future
The storm of Friday night bos excited great
uneasiness as to the safety of this fl'tt, but as
storms come from the leeward, this southerly
storm will br Uj hve reached the fleet befote
it Ins made a lauding, unlets destlutd for come
port In the Gulf of 11. xlco, which Is not u gene
rnl or probable supposition.
MtLtTAKT Sennet a from Abhoad. As in the
days of the American revolution, the most dis
tinguished citizens of France express a warm
and lively sympathy for this country ; and tlut
sympathy Is not me.ely announced In woids,
but lu ths proffer of their military services.
Wo now hear that the Count de Sayrc. a
lineal descendant of Count Rochambeiu, and
ihe Baron de Schonen, a descendant of General
Lafuyet'e, have tendered tbeir military ser
vices to the Government. The President has
assured them that these will be accepted. We
may, therefor, expect soon to announce their
Tbey who do not know what Rochambeau
and Laf tyelto did in Ibe army of the revolu
tion, have not read the history of their country.
General Fremont's Case. We publish, on
the outside, a synopsis of the charges agatnst
General Fremont cenialned in the report of
General Thomas. Also, the replies made in
behalf of Geoeral Fremont, In respect to two ot
We have not happened to see any reply to
one charge in General Thomas' report, noil
which was also made some time since by Hon
Francis P. Blair, viz: that General Fremont
continued to circulate his original proclama
tion In respect to the emancipation of slaves
after receiving the President's order to modify
It. This Is a very serious charge, because,
whatever diversities of opinion there miy be
as to Ibe policy of issuing the proclamation
originally, there can be none as to the duty ol
General Fiemont, as a matter of military
subordination, to obey the order given by the
President for Its modification. It may turn
out, however, that then is a mistake aa to the
fact ot General Fremont's subsequent circula
tion of the original proclamation.
3T The New York Times of Saturday makes
furious onslaught upen Quartermaster Gene
ral Meigs, for purchasing, (through ageuts,)
blankets In Europe, " the very poorest, meanest,
and cheapest they could find." Wbm General
Meigs is heard from, he may put a very differ
ent face on the affair. In the mciutime, it Is
evident that, what with accusations and de
fonces, the character of the blankets, horses,
mules, Ac., bought for the army, is likely to be
pretty thoroughly overhaultd.
Tub FtmuCATioN of Gen. Thomas's Retort.
The New York Times accuses tho Tribune of
some unfairness touching the matter of the pub
lication of Gen. Stone's and Gen. Thomas's re
ports, to which Iho THoiine replies :
" We have only to repeU that Gen. Thomas's
and Gn. Stone's reports both came to us, sur
prising as It may socm to tho Time, in the
regular courso oi newspaper uusiness, wun
authority to publish them."
The CAronfcfe, of yesterday, rebuts this Idea,
by saying that,
"Anybody who knows anything of General
Stone knows very well that he would far rather
send a correspondent to tbe guardhouse or
drum mm out oi camp, man givo mm an item
of Information. The report of General Thomas
was a confidential communication between him-
eelf nnd tbe Secretary of War, and Its prema
ture and unfortunate publication was never
sanctioned by either the Adjutant General or
Secretary uameron. They were both In Ihe
possession oi tne war Department, and tbe in
ference Is, that tney were given to ton lYUnine
representative by some person connected with
that Department in a subordinate capacity. It
could never have been the result of favoritism,
en Ih.. relations of Ihe Tribune towards the Ad
minlstruilon forbid such a suggestion."
Capt. Mallort, ot Col. Baker's brigade, who
was among tbe wounded, Is still In a very crit
ical condition, and Is being cared for In a farm
house in the vicinity ofeBall's Bluff.
On l'llday last, Uen. Stone tc'nt a Utg of
truco to Gen. Evani, of the rebel army, lo
know what deposition bad been made. of the
Union prisoners taken In the lalo battle, nnd
how our dead had been disposed of. General
Evans replied, that tho prisoners wcro In a to
bacco warehouse at Richmond,. and that the
dead had been decently burled.
Five of our soldier", drowned at B H's Bluff
were taken out of tho Potomac at the Chain
Bridge yesterday. They were so much mull.
Kted that Identification was tmpostlble.
We understand that a grand review of three
divisions, will take placn today, at Hall
LniT Cos. WiSTtR, we are happy to hear, Is
fast recovering from tbe effects of his wound.
The army chaplains bavo had another meet
ing In this city. The principal object appeared
to be tho concentration of their efforts so as to
procure the pnssge of a law more clearly de
fining their position and rank, their relation'
to other officers, and the uniform they should
wear. The law now prescribes that they shall
birVe the pay of captains of cavalry, but does
not designate their uniform It was finally
determined lo present this matter (o tbe Presl
dent add the proper military authorities
through a committee, and to agree upon what
action It Is neces-ary Congress shall take In
order to remedy the evils complained of.

River News We learn, from authority
which we have no reason to doubt, thst on
Friday night a field battery attached to the
brigade of General Sickles, fired from tbe Ma
ryland shore on the steamer George Page, who
was at that tlrao lying in Q'tantico Creek, two
miles off. Two or three of the shells exploded
over her, end one struck her, causing a speedy
scampering .of her crew. It Ib not known what
damage she sustained, if any.
The rebel batteries on tbe opposite ihore
(Virginia) immediately returned the fire,
throwing shell and shot, which reached the
Maryland shore, but doing no damage.
Wo were told that ou Saturday the rebels
opened a new battery down the Potomac, on
the Virginia Bide, and celebrated the occasion
ly raising two mammoth rebel flags.
Tbe wounded at Poolesviilo, 100 in number,
are doing well.
a The New York Trihune, of Friday, says,
in respect to Its publication of the report of
General Thomas in relation lo affairs at tbe
"Whether General Thomas's report was
' wholly unfitted for publication,' is a point on
which we, at least, do not choose to offer an
opinion. It came to us, as that vf Gen. Stone
did, published in tbe same paper, In regular
course from the War Department, with author
ity to give it to Ihe'public through our col
umns. It Is not for us to decide upon tho fit
ness of official reports for publication. On that
point the Departments are quite able to judge
lor themselves, and we snouid not letl at lib'
erty to reject either Gen. Thomas's or Gen.
stone's lor any sucn reason."
