FRIDAY, OCTOBER 2. 1857.
Gen. l'Mllow Iteply.
At the sacrifice of our usual variety we
republish this morning the reply of Gen.
jpillow to the letter of Gen. Hitchcock.
Maury County, Sept 25, 1857.
In my recent address to the people of Tennessee,
riving the secret history of the Puebla negotiations
with the relations I bore to the Government, and to
the "Trist Mission," and the part I r erformpd in d -feating
those negociations, I waa careful to avoid
everything of a personal or party character.
I made a simple statunent of facts, and referred
to the war office at Washington, where the proof of
those facta would be found.
I anticipated that these rii-c.ofures, would Ptart up
a fie-h the whole pack of blood hounds, who have
pursued me, with so much iieiceuesd ever since I
entered the army. ..... ,
E A. Hitchcock, who signs himself "Acting In
spector General of the Army in Mexico, and late
Brevet Bn'gadiar General," i.s the firM to open the
cry upon the new sc-nt, and forthwith, the editori
al pack Prentice, Greely, &. Co., chime in and
The crv of these last is an old yell quite fami
liar to the public ear, and without terror, even to
the faint hearted. But thia man Hitclicntk, who
thinks to give himself character and consequence
before the country, by setting forth the position he
occupied, ar.d the length ot time he had been in the
army, is not so well known, and therefore it may not
be improper to give him some further notice.
When the war with Mexico broke out, he was
Lieutenant-Colonel in the line, and in command of
the 31 Infantry, an fine a Regiment as the army
could boast of. While tliM Regiment was in the
field, marching against the ent my, to cut it way to
honor and glory, its commander. Col. Hitchcock
gave up the command, and cravenly skulked from
thia post of danger and honor lor the nominal posi
tion of Acting Inspector General, in Gen. Scott's
Staff, where all his associates were Lieutenants, and
where be was far removed from danger. With the
soldier, the post of danger is the post of honor.
To understand bow tar be compiomised his honor
as a soldier, by this step, we have but to examine
the catalogue of the gallant dead, where we find the
names of Mcintosh, Scott, Ransom, Graham, Butler,
Dickinson and a host ot other Regimental Command
ers, to see how fearfully their ranks were thinned in
the bloody battles fou ht from Vera Cruz to the
City of Mexico, and then to contemplate how com
fortable it was to be in the Stall' of the commanding
General, without ever being under fire.
It was by this specie of strategy that this gallant
veteran of nearly forty years services in the army has
passed through a series ot so many years, without
a tear upon his person, without seeing an enemy
in the war with Mexico, except from the safe stand
point of his chief, and without ever having, faced an
enemy of his country, unless he was in some of the
skirmishes with the Indians, in the Florida war.
While upon the subject of the i'lorida war, we in
vite him, iu his next epistle to tell what General
Scott in his reports said of his gallantry in that war,
then to furnish the country with what he said of
Gen. Scott, in his anonymous communicatiooa to
A knowledge of the achievmenta ot this ton of
Mars in that war, with the opinion, of the "great
soldier" of his gallantry; and hid opinion ot the
"great soldier" written for the information of the
public, would interest the people of Teunessee quite
as much as his dishonorable reflections upon the
memory of the great man, whose fame constitutes
the pride and honor of this State.
To understand why he was breveted, it is only ne
cessary to say that that w as honor reflected from
Geu Scott, his chief, upon whose reports the Gov
ernment acted in confering brevets. Such is a brief
sketch of the bridiant actiievmenta of this veteran
wanior, who with the brevet rank of Brigadier
General, resigned his commission and abandoned
the army, rather than obey the order of his Gov
ernment, and go on duty with his regiment to our
frontiers, where by possibility he might have to fight
In regard to his character as a man of honor and
truth, the country will remember him as a co-conspirator
and associate witness of Mr. N. P. Trist, who
by their falsehoods, batched the difficulties and pro
voked the rupture between myself and Gen. Scott,
and acted as his pimps in getting up the fal.-ehoods
embodied in the foul charges against me, and then
appeared before the Court of Inquiry, ami swore
against me, with malice so'indiscreet, as to discredit
themselves, and to cause the Court to set aside their
testimony thus branding them as convicts of wil
While I will be ready at all times, to make good
the statements in my address, if any ge.tltman will
take issue with me upon them, yet a proper self-re-apect,
forbids that I should do more than notice the
misrepresentations and aspersions ot Hitchcock or
Trist, who are "par uobile fratrum" iu crime.
This much I will do, iu a much as some persons
may see his dirty elusions, who have not had an
opportunity of examining my address I shall
point out and correct two palpable falsehoods in
his letter, so that the public may see that he is still
engaged in his old vocation, of wilful misrepresent
Iu my address, I made the following statements,
"In appointing a Mission to travel with the army
and treat for peace, (if an opportunity should ofler,)
the grade ot diplomatic duly to be per formed, and
the emolument thereto attached, made it impossi
ble for the Pieeident to find a statesman wtio WoufJ
accept the place. The uian selected tor that position
was Mr. N. P. Trist. But cither distrusting his
ability, or ju.lgment, or prudence, or all these, Pres
ident Polk was not satisfied to place the honor of
, the couuuy, and his admiuistiatiou, iu his Lands
"By his confidential Utters, now in my possession,
he so far associated myself with Mr. Trial as to place
ma in ieini-offieial relations with him ax a commis
sioner. The duty was enjoined upon Mr. Tri?t of
taking me into all his conferences, aud to consult
Die iu all his negotiations. rI lie duty was imposed
upon me as a patriot, and the devoted friend of the
President, to eruard and protect the honor of the
country and of his administration against any and
everything which I thought would taminh the one
or the other. It will hence be seeii, that while Mr.
Trist was the ostensible commissioner, I was, in fact
the confidential officer of the Government, upj,,
whom the President relied to guard and protect the
honor of the country, in the important neg(,iniiolia
Involving the peace of the country."
It will be seen from the above statement, that I
represent myself, as having been placed' by the
President, iu semi-olliciul relations with Mr. Trist
as a commissioner, and that I occupied the position
of a confidential officer of the Government, in con
nection with thia mission, of which fact Mr. Trist
had full knowledge. But I had no duty to perform
as such civil officer with Gen. Scott, and there is
cot one word said upon that subject, and jet this
gwitt witness, in his letter to the St. Loui Repub
lican, makes the following reckless statement, vii:
"This very remarkable paper sutids alone it is
presumed, as an instance wherein a candidate for
office before our people base his claims, or his
priucipal claim, upon ail open confession of having
occupied the low and dishonorable position of a spy
upon the conduct of his commanding General. Gen.
Pillow unblushingly tells us that he joined General
Scott, in Mexico, as "the confidential officer of the
Government, upon whom the President relied to
guard aud protect the honor of the country iu the
important negotiations involving the peace of the
cou.trt. Iu this secret position, Geu. Pillow, hav
ing, ex-ojfficio the entree to the presence !" the com
manding General at all tunes, and frequently having
a seat at hi private table, accumulated materials
for defami'ig hi confiding commanding officer, in
confidential letters to hi old companion iu a law of
fice, then the President of the United States, and
now reveals thia astonishing fact, and claims fromr
the people of his Siaua a high office as a reward to
his secret service iu that capacity. Who doe not
see the shocking stale of things ihu disclosed, and
disclosed too, by the very man who occupied so da
' grading a position? What officer of the American
; army, of any proper aelf respect, would permit him
self to be made such aa instrument? What w uld
a due senae of delicacy and honor have prompted a
gentleman to do on tiuding hiiusit appealed to it
ao dishonorable a service? Undoubtedly be would
have thrown back the President' appeal iih acorn,
or be would have laid the whole matter befoi the
commauding General, and profesa to art only wiiu
his full knowledge. lut Gen. Pillow accepted u
degrading position tendered him by the Presided,
and now claims credit for hia service, a "the con
fldeuiial officer, Iiom public position gave him
ceil to the pretence of the commanding General."
Uere, with my addreaa bt.-fotw him, ihi Ex lu
epector -General iale what he knaw to ba a delib
erate falsehood, Yix: That I coufea myself to have
been a spy upon Gen. Scott; and having mumej
thia lie, be ha the eflVonlery upou it to baa hi
ealumnioutrfcrurca, foully aprsin my character
and covertly assailing lh memory ot I'mndeot Polk.
, Who does not perceive that it I had accepted lha
Eoiition of a spy upon Gen. Scott' movcmenU, at 4
ad la so doing dishonored uiyrlf, that tha Presi
dent, in imposing such a duty upon me, vii dishon
, oring liio-lf. Cut I accepted no such position,
and knw it when he penned tha article.
How despicably base must he be who will thus
intentionally fabricate a falsehood in order to get
an opportunity of slandering the memory of the
ill ustrous dead, and of venting the malice of his
soul against the roan whom he tried to victimize
with his false testimony before the courts of inquiry!
If he were now before a court of justice for the
first time and with an untarnished reputation, would
notthis willful falsehood utterly discredit bim?
Nearly ten yeraa ago, in my defence before that
court, (which was published to the world,) I de
nounced him as destitute of 'truth, honor and courage
He has pocketed this withering denunciation ever
since in silence. Tie now comes forth, professing to
be governed alone by ihe desire to protect the char
acter of tho "great soldier" and to enlighten the
people of Tennessee as to my claims to Senatorif l
honors his malice marked with falseliood, striking
like the assassin in the dark.
Ten years ago, when I was under arrest, awaiting
a trial upon charges which he was expected to
prove, he wrote an anonymous letter to the New
Y oik Courier and Enquirer a which he said:
"Pillow, too, is in arrest! He is so; and charges
running through several sheets of paper have been
forwarded to Washington, and they represent him in
such an odious light that we cannot think of him
but with di?gut. He is charged with lying, and
with duplicity and treachery; iu fact, his character
is utterly prostrate here."
Again he said : "He (Pillow) could only have re
ceived a slight blow of some sort; possibly, he struck
bis foot or ankle against some projecting limb, with
out knowing what it was."
Gen. Scott, in his official report, said of this
slight blow" against a "projecting limb." "This
gallant leader waa struck down while up with the
front ranks by an agonizing wound."
Again: Hitchcock says in his letter, "I will con
fine my remarks to facts within my own knowledge."
So then it appears that he had a. personal knowledge
of the facts told him in Trist's lies! A personal
knowledge of all that took place at Trist's quarters
when he was not present. Though the army had
been fighting from 1 2 meridian till 4 p.m. on the
IVth of August, under my orders, and with no senior
officer upon the fielj, he has a personal knowledge
that I had given wo orders to Generals Twigas,
Riley, Cadwallader or Col. Morgan, when these
officer all testify that I had, aud when he was not
On the morning of the 20th of August, when the
entrenched camp of Contreras was carried under
Smith, I was upon the hill of Chepultepec, in full
view of the assnaulting force, yet, he had a personal
knowledge that I was iu bed at San Augustine.
Again: Hitchcock says Trist told him that I took
him into "private room" (on the night of the IStth
August, after Gen. Scott had directed the assault on
the morning of the 2;th, under Gen. Smith's sug
gestion) and I told him (Trist) that I disapproved
this plan, and notified him that I washed my hands
of the responsibility of the movement. Now, it so
happens that this fact, as stated by Trist, was em
braced in Scott's charges ag-dust me. Tiist swore
to the fact, but the Court was satisfied that he lied
and found against him in this, as in all his other
testimony, and Hitchcock knew it, yet he now re
vives and brings forward this proven falsehood of
Trist's and repeats it as true, under his pledge "to
confine himself to matters within his owu knowl
edge." But independently of this view of the sub
ject, why should I wish to wash my hands of the
responsibility of a measure ordered by Gen. Scott?
He was in command of the army my senior in
rank and the entire responsibility would of course
rest upon him. Yet Hitchcock repeats this old dis
prove!! falsehood aa if he himself believed it!
Is further facta or commentary necessary to show
the utter moral depravity of this "Acting Inspector
The other misrepresentation I deem it proper to
correct, relates to the Puebla negotiations. In my
address I made the following statement:
When I reached the Head Quarters of the army
at Puebla, I was invited to a conference with Mr.
Trist. On my arrival at his quarters I lound Gen.
Scott there. Mr. Trist informed me that tie had
opened negotiations with Santa Anna, and had pretty
well agreed upon the preliminaries of negotiations
for peace. By these terms Santa Anna was to be
paid, cash in hand, as earnest money, $10,000, and
our army was to march to the valley of Mexico aud
fight a battle before the City. If we won, an armis
tice waa to be granted, and commissioners appoint
ed to treat for peace. When peace should be con
cluded, Santa Anna was to receive one million of
Mr. Trist farther informed me that these terms
had been agreed to, but it was an open question
whether Santa Anna or Gen. Scott, (after the battle
was fought,) should take the initiative, and send the
flag of truce, preparatory to the armistice Santa
Anna insisting that Gen. Scott 6hould send the flag,
but Geu. Scott insisting, if he won the battle, Santa
Anna should do so. He further said Geu. Scott had
furnished him the money, and that he had paid the
$10,000 required to be paid in advance and that Gen.
Scott had the means in disbursing department of the
army, or could raise the means, of paying the mil
lion to be paid at the conclusion of the negotiations.
He also said he had invited me to the conference in
pursuance ol the order ot the President, and desired
my approval of the terms.
I asked Mr. Trist if tliere was any law authorizing
such a use of the public money? He replied there
was not. I then asked him it the President had
authorized such a use of it. He replied he had not;
but he thought it was the best he could do.
Regardiug this as an improper use of the public
money, and as a bribe to the commander of the ene
my's forces, and as dishonoring the Government,
and disgraceful to our army, I at once protested
against the whole matter.
Gen. Scott justified and defended the measure,
both upon the score ot morals and as to the usage
of governments. He said we were not corrupting
Santa Anna, for the fact that he was found in the
market, asking a bribe, was proof that he was al
In regard to the practice of Governments, he
said it was a wage of all Governments, to effect their
purposes, when nece-saiy, by money, and that our
Government had sanctioned the practice. He said
the presents made by it to the Chiefs of Indian tribes
and to the Bai baiy powers, were nothing but bribes.
He fuither said that in ti e settlement of the North
eastern boundary question, $30,iu0 had been used
no one knows how, but the officers of the Gov
ernment, unless it was used to bribe the Maine press.
He mentioned other instances in which the Govern
ment had expended large sums of money in this
Finding Gen. Scott clear as to the righ' of the
measure, and earnest in his co-operation with Mr.
Tiiat, not being familiar myself with the usages of
other Governments, nor the practice of our own, I
doubted what I ought to do; and in deference to his
wishes and judgment, suspended my opposition,
until a day s reflect ion had confirmed my opinion ot
duty to my country. On the night after the confer
ence took place, (Jen. Scott called a council of Gen
eral officers, to whom he made known what had
been done in the way of negotiation, aud to whom
he expressed substantially the views aud opinions
Being satisfied after reflection that my first im
pressions were right, I went next day to Gen. Scott
and Mr. Trist, and protested so earnestly against the
whole matter that they both said I was right, and
that they would abandon the negotiations. I then
thought they were sincere in their purpose to aban
don it, and all idea of peace to be thus obtained.
It will be seen from the above statement, that the
conference spoken of was held iu the day time, and
at Mr. Trist's quarters, and that there was no one
present but Mr. Trist, Gen. Scott and myself.
It was at this conference that the terms of
negotiation agreed to by Trist were first made
known to me. It was here that I made known my
opposition. It was then that Geu. Scott's argu
ment induced me to doubt aa to my duty, and that
I, at his request, and in deference to his wishes aud
opinion, agreed to suspend my opposition until re-
uecuuu Biioum aatisiy me as l my dutv I slated
iu my address that the following night Gen. Scott
called a council of general officers, to whom he ex
pressed iubstantially, the same views and opinions
he had in the conference held at Trist's quarter's.
I did not, however, pretend to give the opinions or
view expressed at that meeting, either by mvself
or anyoue else; and I referred to what took p'lace
at thia meeting of general officers simply to let the
public uudersuud that others, beside myself, knew
the facts. I have stated that at the private confer
ence I had agreed to suspend my opposition, and I
now slate that at the meeting of general officer -did
not make knowti my opposition, but said, inub
stance, that though I thought the whole matter was
wrong, yet I supposed we were chKaing the least
of evils, in agreeing to the proposed term This I
did in conformity with my agreement to suspend
my opposition until better aiLfied a to my duty.
Hitchcock's "note written at the time," are like
those ha produced on the investigation before the
court about the hour at which Gen. Scoit arrived on
tho battle field on the lClh of August, which wero
proveu to be I'al.teby half a dozen witnease. These
nous do not correctly rive what fra aid by any
general officer present except Gen. Cdaflader,

1 further ii in my addr, a U en from the
above quouLon, the next day, being satisfied after
inflection that my first impression were right, that
I went to Geu. Scott and Mr. Trist and protested
so earuoilv against the whole Blatter, that they
ootu agrecl I waa riht, aud that they would aban
don the DVXUUalHMI.
Thia Uiccui.g i-f general officer haJ no duty to
perform iu a csvil capacity. My positiou, a a cou
fidvntial officer ( th Government, waa not know a

aiuon tor refieciioa
Tbet ra tb fact as tUy ar ftated, ubtu
tially, in my address, and as Hitchcock knew them
to be from that address, and yet he comes forward,
professing to have a personal knowledge of all the
fact, and with his notes (evidently written for the
place they occupy in his letter) make me the warm
advocate of the whole corrupt negotiation armis
tice and all when my opposition to the whole pro
ceeding is as well known, and waa as fully proven,
as any proposition could be that depended Upon
human testimony. . '
He says Congress had made a liberal appropria
tion to procure a peace, and thinks it would not be
so great a wrong to use a little of it, even iu the
way of bribe. He feels that if he could implicate
me in this business, he would thereby effectually
screen himself and his chief and associate in terpi
tude, Trist, from the condemnation of a just public
opinion. . .
This gross perversion of my position, and this
effort to raise a false-issue between myself and Gen.
Smith, and to ascribe Geu. Scott's rupture with me
to my refusal to modify my official report, is but an
other shameless attempt at falsehood at which he
has shown himself quite as adroit as he was reckless
in swearing before tne court.
To understand the importance of his question,
and how greatly the American army was endanger
ed by the terms of this negotiation, as agreedupou,
it is necessary to look at the relative strength and
position of the two armies at the time. The Mexi
can army was 35,000 strong, and was in a city with
a population of 200,000 inhabitants, defended by
doable lines of defensive works, with over 100
pieces of artillery and with this armv. The Ameri
can army consisted of 11,500 men, "all told ; was in
the midst of the enemy's country; without support
ing force, and without the possibility ot early rein
forcements. From this statement of the relative strength and
position of the two armies, how fearfully were the
chances against our success ! Yet, by the terms as
agreed upon, it Santa Anna won the battle, the sur
vivors of the American army would be within his
power and at his mercy. If we won, he had pro
vided, by the armistice, for the safety of himself,
his army and the city. If peace ensued he got the
million and ten thousand dollars. If peace did not
ensue, he got time to make every necessary prepa
ration for renewing the bloody struggle, with great
ly increased chances of succ. sa from our reduced
It will thus be seen that Gen. Scott and Santa
Anna had agreed to play the game of "open and
shut" the stake being tiie lives and blood of our
army, and Santa Anna having " the hold " That
the army in such a conflict did not perish, was ow
ing to ita own indomitable valor. As it was, it
cut its way into the city, ar the cost of nearly half
its numbers. It was against these terms that I pro
tested. In my address I stated that Mr. Trist made an a
greernent with Santa Anna (md ih it Gen. Scott ap
proved and sanctioned it) by which Santa Anna was
to receive, cash iu hand, jli'MJO; that our army
was to march to the Valley of Mexico, fight a battle
before the city if we won, Scott was to grant an
armistice Santa Anna waa to appoint commission
ers to treat for ptace, and when peace was conclu
ded he was to receive one million more. That Scott
or Trist paid the ten thousand dollars before leaving
Puebla; that we inarched to the Valley, fought the
battle, had the city in his power, halted the army at
the gate of the city, ordered it to fall back without
a flag of truce from the enemy, and granted an ar
mistice; that Santa Anna was allowed time to re
cruit his army, strengthen the defences of the city,
and thus to make it necessary to fight over his bat
tles, which cost the army the blood of 1672
men; that it was thua manifest that Gen. Scott
acted upon and carried out the terms of the Puebla
negotiations; that I opposed the whole proceeding,
not as a spy upon Gen Scott, but as an associate
commissioner with Mr. Trist; that my position was
knowu both to Gen. Scott and Mr. Trist; that find
ing I could not arrest these proceedings, alike dis
graceful to the Government and dangerous to the
army, I reported all the facts to the President, who !
thereupon re-called Mr. Trist; that shortly afterwards
I was ariested and held a prisoner in the city of
Mexico, until I was relieved from arrest by an order
of the Presidcntof the United States.
Thia waa the substance of that address. Does
Gen. Hitchcock deny that there waa such an argu-
nient, or that the ten thousand dollars was paid
Does be deny that after marching to the valley and
fighting the battle, Gen. Scott halted the army when
the city was in his power and granted an armistice,
without the enemy having sent a flag of truce, or
asked for the armistice until next day ? Does he
deny that I opposed the armistice warmly and ear
nestly, both by verbal and written remonstrance?
Does he deny that Santa Anna availed himself of the
armistice to recruit hia army and strengthen the de
fences of the city, and that iu the after operations,
made necessary by the armistice, cost the army the
blood of 1672 of its men? Does he explain why
Mr. Trist was recalled and ordered to be seut out
of the country, if not upon my report, and why he
was promptly recalled upon that if I was not an
associate commissioner? Does he pretend to ex
plain how it happened that both Gen. Worth and
myself the two officers who opposed the armistice
were arrested shortly after Trist was recalled ?
Unless he denies these well known facts of the his
tory of that campaign, he makes no issue with any
statement in my address.
Yet he would have the public believe that Gen.
Scott bioke off friendly relations with me because I
would not alter my official report and falsify my con
victions of truth. He says that Gen. Scot "conde
scendaT'' to address me in kind and complimentary
language, in a "private note," to induce me to do so,
and that I basely attempted to use this private note
for my own glorification, &c.
Iu the first place Gen. Scott's letter, from which
the extract was taken, is not a private note; but on
the contrary, was an vfficial letter, addressed by
Miij. (Jen. Scott to Maj. Gen. Pillow, and related ex
clusively to the movements of the army and to offi
cial reports, and waa by Gen. Scott so regarded, and
by him forwarded to the War Department of the
Government at Washington.
In the second place, it it had been a private note
aud Gen. Scott had paid me unmerited compliments,
to induce me to satisfy my own convictions, as
Hitchcock says was the fact, he puts Gen. Scott in
a position in which all his friends would see that he
cutipromised his honor. Either, therefore. Hitch-
cock lies, or else Gen. Scott was gu l'y of waiting
me a highly eulogistic letter, falsifying the truth
lor a most ignoble purpose.
It is not material to me which horn of the dilem
ma he assumes. If he speaks the truth, Gen. Scott
wrote falsely. It Gen. Scott, in his official letter,
wrote the truth, Hitchcock has but added another
to the many acta which consign his name to infamy
lie may, therefore, fabricate what he pleases and
slander tne m inory ot the pure and illustrious
statesman who recalled his "associate in crime"
suspended his chief from command, and approved
the finding of the court, that reli -ved me from his
false testimony and the foul charges he vainly
untight to fix uuon mv character. He may run as
the leader of the pack, upon the track ot him tor
whose blood he so thirsts: but his teeth are now
extracted, and he canuot bite, though he be ruoid
with Aile-and malice.
I regret the necessary length of this communica
tion, and still more the notice I have been compel
led to take of a man who, though not mentioned or
alluded to in my address, comes forward an imper
tinent intermeddler with the rights of the people of
Tennetsee, and provokes thia exposure. ?
Perhaps in the future, he will work at "Scott s
Conquest of Mexico," in the "retirement" which
his aversion to the use of the ifrd has driven him,
as more congegial to his peaceable nature than fight
Having now disposed of him as I think he de
serves, it is proper to say that I shall take no fur
ther notice of any thing emanating from that
G1D. J. PILLOW.
For the Patriot.

at that period if he will refer to the publications
made by bis father-in-law if he will only remem
ber whit Gen, Jackson said, and wrote to'his numer
ous frieu it in Tenuessee be will find that there or
gauiziLion of the Cabinet was placed on the ground
of political necessity. He will fiud that this deci

It will not do, therefore, to say that there was
nothing political in the causes which led to the re
moval of Gen. Done '.s m'd fat her -in-law ; nor does
the General better his case by saying that h pre
f rred Barbour to Van Buren, and that the indigna
tion meetings which he got up in Sumner were oHy
intended to express this preference. The fa:t is,
that Gen. Donelson at tht period went further
tnan Calhoun did iu his denunciations ot Gen. Jjck
son. Cafbouu contended that nullification was a.
constitutional audpeaciful remedy. Gen. Done!
on dt clared thiit revolution was b.-tter thau sub
mission to the docirin s of Gen. Jackson. Cihiouo
was for settling the difficulty by discussion and ar
gument; but Gen. Donelson, who had been elected
a Brigadier General Of the Sumner county militi-a.
by the retirement of Gen. Desha, was for Tar, im
mediate war on the old veterdU of the Hermitage,
who had led that militia to imoerishable honor tnd
glory on the plain ol New Oilcans, and iu the nu
merous victories which they obtained over the In
dian' of the South.
I he Barbour movement was a fiilure, jut as the
McLean one had been. Both movements oiiins

was t-tiil another reason tor this il:n ge of tat tic
on the part ol the nuliificis and abchlioni-ts. al
though Mr. Van Bureu had declared that be sought
a higher Jory than to tread in the foo8'ps of
his illustrious predecessor, it was Lqowii to his
confidential friends that he was willing to throw off
all responsibility for the proclamation aud force bill.
He was sagacious enough to see thit the North
had the riht to uulhfy if the South had. Accord
ingly Mr. Van Buren felt it to be no viol. lion of
Stite Rights to st up the Buffalo platform as the
te3t of Democratic orthodoxy; and he has very con-
i Bislouiiy voted lor sir. uucnanau, just as tne nuin-

the nullitiers voted tor him because he was the
' enemy of Geu. Jackson, and would keep up the
; slavery aiution another four years, by paying one
thing to the North, aud another to the South, and
' by prating about the quality of the States. But
it is not our intei tion to enter into an xtended
' enumeration of ibe points pugg-sied by the card
of Gen. Donelson, whose chitf merit in the eye of
the Democracy, sctms to be that of opposition to
his brother. Iu this free country, it is the Gene
ral's privilege to profess what he pleases in politi 8,
but we object to his attempt to pass himself off as
a Jackson Democrat. Let him reap the rewards
which are due to the
. " Patient search and vigil long

record which proves him to be an enen y of Gen.
