DAILY JOTJRWAL.
FX WAY MORSIXG MAYS.
E.VOUSD Tuk Pxosrr.cT. Amid all the revolu
tion which have swept the European nation?, sayt
the North American, one remarkable feature has
tcn presented as the forerunner of each that is, the
Extraordinary infatuation of the governments and rul
iag classes against which they have teen directed.
There docs not seem, in any case, to have been a
Iropcr appreciation of the peril, or the slightest sus
l icion that the popular movement meant, and was to
I revolution . The kings and the princes, good soul,
shook their head, and smiled or scowled, as the case
might be. and then went satisfied to bed to wake,
next mominz. thronelessor Dowerie. exiles in for
urn countries, or prisoners on uarole at home, the in I
voluntary instruments and servants of their people.
This infatuation, at the latest dates, prevailed in an
extraordinary degree in the British Parliament, where
honorable members, Fitting on the thin hell of a vol
cano about to explode, contented themselves with
laughing and pooh-poohing, in the most genteel man
ner possible, at every suggestion and warning ofdan
ger. Three hundreJ thousand chartists or republi
cans were to hold their monster meeting within a
few days.the minister had declared the meeting should
be suppresed, and the chartists had sternly avowed
they would hold it notwithstanding, and repel force
by force. Was there nothing terrific in the prospect
of collision f It appears not. When Feargus O'Con
nor hinted that the ministerial determination to pre
vent the meeting would "take the people by surprise,'
the M. Pa cried "ohr and laughed; and when 1 e
said the chartist petition was signed by five or fix
millions of citizens, they cried oh, oh!" and laugh
ed again.
There is, manifestly, an ominous stale of things
listing in Great Britain; and the retreat of the Queen
to the Isle of Wight is a circumstan?e, perhaps preg
nant with meaning. We have always believed that
the aristocracy of Europe must sooner or later fall.
Cobdcn's New League would have ensured the result,
by a pacific agitation. If a revolution burst out, it
must be a fierce and bloody one. The British aristo
cracy m not like the worn out continental aristocra
cies. It has a strong plebian infusion, and wide p'e
bian alliances. It is full of strength and vigor, and
will never yield wi hout a struggle; it will die game.
It is threatened both by England and Ireland; but it
seems confident of its own resources; and perhaps
pride and infatuation combine together to keep it in
thp facetious mood which it exhibits in Parliament on
the eve of a great day of danger.
THE MARSEILLES HYMN.
The following is a translation of the Marseilles
Hymn, originally written during the old French Rev
olution of 1789, and which his ever since been the
rallying song of the French Republicans. It was
tung through the streets of Pari, during the last ex-
i:ement,with the liveliest enthusiasm:
Ye sons" of France awake to glory,
Hark, hark what myriads bid you rise,
Your-children, wives, and grandsires hoary;
Behold their tears and hear their cried.
Shall liateful tyrants, mischief b reeling.
With hireling hosts, a ruffian band;
Affright and desolate the laud.
While peace and liberty lie bleeding!
To atms! to arms! ye brave.
The avenging sword unsheath, -March
on! March on! all hearts resolved
On liberty or death! ...-
Now, now the dangerous storm is rolling.
Which treach'rous Kings confederate rnisc;
The dogs of war let loose are howling,
And lo! our fields and cities blaze.
And shall we basely view the ruin.
While 1 awless force with guilty stride
Spreads desolation far and wide.
With crime and blood hi hands embruingf
To arm!
With luxury and pride surrounded.
The vile insatiate de-pots dare
Their thirst of gold and power unbounded.
To mete and vend the light and air
Like beasts of burden would they load us
like tyrants bid their slaves adore;
But man is man, and who is more?
Nor hall they longer lash and goad us.
To arm!
O'. liberty! can man resign theef
Once having felt thy gen'röus flame;
Can dungeons, bolts and bars confine thee.
Or whips thy noble spirit tame?
Too long the world has wept bew ailing
That falsehood's dagger tyrants wield;
But freedom is our sword and shield,
. And all th ir arts arc unavailing.
To arms!

Another Letter from Gen. Scott Ills
Charges against the War Department.
The Philadelphia News publishes a three
column letter from Geueral Scott to the War
Department, in which he enumerates all the
various causes of complaint be has had from
the time he left Washington to the period of
his suspension from the command of the army.
We, however, have only room for a few ex
tracts: Mexico Feb. 21th, 184S.
Sir On the ISth instant, I received your
two letters of the 13th ultimo, and immediate
ly issued the general order No 59 a copy en
closed devolving the command of the arm in
Mexico upon Maj. Gen. Butler.
As the officers detailed for the court of in
quiry, before which I am ordered to appear as
a criminal, are not known to have arrived in
the country, I avail myself of a moment's leis
ure to recall ome of "the neglects, disappoint
ments, injuries and rebukes, w hich have been
inflicted upon ne by the War Department
since my departu: from Washington, Novem
ber 23d, 1S16.
To me the business of recrimination, how
ever provoked, has ever been painful. In this
summary, I shall, therefore, indulge in no wan
tonness of language, but confine myself to na
ked historical facts, leaving conclusions to men
of sense and candor.
Early in the following January, I asked that
a general court martial might be appointed, on
the part of the President, for the trial of two
officers, (named by me) for conduct each had
committed that endangered, in a high degree,
the success of the impending campaign, and 1
specially referred to the anomalous and fatal
act of Congress, (May 29, 1830,) which prohib
ited me, as the "accuser or prosecutor," from
ordering the court for the trial of the cases.
M application has never been noticed. This
neglect, alone, ought early to have admonished
me thai 1 had no hope of support at Washing
ton, in any attempt I might make (against cer
tain officers,) to maintain necessary discip
line in the army I was about to lead into the
field.
Here follows an enumeration of the various
disappointments in respect to transports, seige
trains, and ordnance stores, he had experi
enced. He then alludes to the ten regiment
bill; which was passed February 11, 18-17, and
says:
"My distress mar be conceived, by any sol
dier, on learning at Jala pa, April, 27, that the
wnoieoi tnat lorce had been sent, under Brig
adier General Cadwallader, to the Rio Grande
frontier!
It is not extravagant to say that, if Brigadier
General Cadwalader's forces had not been di
rected by me to the Rio Grande, where he was
made to lose, without any benefit to Major
Gen. Taylor, much precious timf, I might have
easily taken this city in the month of June,
and at one-fifth of the loss sustained in August
and September. The enemy availed himself
of my forced delay, at Puebla, to collect, to
rible, to organize and discipline, his forces, as
lso, to erect numerous and powerful defences
with batteries. arly all those extraordinary
preparations for our reception were made after
the middle of June. And it is known that the
news of the victory of Buena Vista reached
Washington in tune to countermand Cadwalla-
ler s orders for the Rio Grande, before his de
parture from New Orleans, Two rifle compa
nies with him; received the countermand there,
and joined me early.
the letter then proceeds to quote from sev
eral despatches to the War DeDartment. in
which, he complained bitterlv of the treatment
he had received, which, he adds, were sent off
by the same coaveya nee with my despatch No.
30, and the charges against Brevet Mai. Gen.
..uim.iHoiui vicurrai riuuw.ariii lire v. lieui
Col. Duncan, together with the appeal against
r .L . r 1 c.
me vi me iormer. All tnese are acknowled
ged by the Department in the same leter, dat
ed Jan. 13, that recalls me.
It was that budget of papers that caused the
blow of power, so Ions suspended, to fall on a
devoted head. The three arrested officers, and
he who had endeavored to enforce a necessary
discipline against ihem, are all to be placed
iugr wer oe iore tne same court. A he innocent
and the guilty, the accuser and the accused, the
juuge anu nis prisoners, are all dealt with a
iic. .tue i impartial justice: iui mere is a
discrimination, with a vengeance! While the
parties are on trialif the appealer is to bi
tried at all, which seems to be doubtful two
are restored to their corps one of them to his
brevet rank audi am deprived of my com
mands, i ne re can dc but one step more in
me same air.-ction: tnrow the rules and arti
cles of war into the fire, and leave all ranks in
the army free to engage in denunciations and a
general scramble for precedence, authority and
executive favors. The pronunciamento on the
part of my factious juuiors, is most trium
phant.
My recall under the circumstances a severe
punishment Utfort trial but to be followed bv
a trial here; that may run into the autumn
and on matters lam but partially permitted to
know by the department and my accusers, is
1 1 a
very ingeniously piaceu on two grounus. i . iiy
own request, meaning that of June 4, (quoted
above, and was no other befo the department)
which had been previously (July 12) acknowl-
eugeü anu reouRinsir declined, z. ine ar
a a a a i . mt
rest of lire vet Major General Worth lor writ
mg to the department "under the pretext and
form of an appeal, an opn letter, to be sen
through me, in which I was gross and falsely
accused of "malice" and "conduct unbecoming
an officer and a gentleman, in the matter
the general order, ro. 349, ou the suDject o
puffing letters for the new papers at home.
Un that second point, the letter irorn the tie
payment, of January 13, is more than ingeqi
ous it is elaborate, subtle and. profound
professional dissection, with the rare method
of eachins principles until now wholly un
t . i
mown to military codes anu treatises, anu o
course U all soldiers, however great their expe
nence in tne Held.
1 have not in this place, time to do more
man mm at tne fatal consequence of the nove
doctrine in question. According to the De
partment, any factious iunior. mar. at his plea
sure, in the midst of the enemy using "the
pretext and form of an appeal" against hiscom
mandcr, insult and outrage him to the greatest
extent though he be the General-in-Chief, and
iiiargpu wun tne conduct or the most critica
operations: and that commander mar not ar
resi me incipient mutineer, until he snail have
I . : .i .1 i .
uifc laiuuown msown authority and submi
ted himulf to a trial, or wait at least, until
distant period of leisure for a judicial exatnina
tionolthe anneal! And this i nrrip1r th
case under consideration. The Department
in its eagerness to condemn me, could not take
lime to Team of the experienced, that the Gen.
eral-in-chief who once submits to an outrage
lrjra a junior, must lay nis account to suite
the like from all the vicious under him a
Ieat down to a rank that may be supposed
without influence, in high quarters, htyort the
i . aa
army. Uut this wouiü not oe me wnoiertis
chief to the public. Even the great mas of
the spirited, intelligent and well -a flee ted.
among his brothers in ams, would soon ie luce
such commander to utter imbecility, by hold-
nz him in just scorn and contempt for his r
creancy to himscll and country. And are fc-
cipline ami efficiency of no value in the field.
liut it was not my request ol June 4, nor re
port No. 30, (of July 25,) so largely quoted
from above; nor yet the appeal of one pronun
dado that has at length brought down upon
me this visitation, so clearly predicted, that
appeal no doubt had its merits considering it
came from an erratic brother a deserter from
the other extreme who having first made 1m
peace with the true faith, was bound to signa-
izeapostacy by acceptable denunciations tl
one from whom, up to Vera Cruz, he had pro
essed and not without cause. the highest ol
izations. lit was there he learned from n e
that I was doomed at Washington, and straight
way the apostate began to seek, through a quar
rel, the means of turning that knowledge to
his own benefit. No. There was Irecentlyi
still another element associated in ;he work
kept as far as practicable out of the letter cf
recall an influence proceeding from the other
arrested General who is quite willing that ii
should generally be understood"(and who shall
gainsay his significant acquiescence;) that all
e wards and punishments in this army were,
rom the first, to follow his recommendations.
This, the most powerful of the proauneiado
against No. 319, well knew, at the time, as 1
soon knew that he was justly obnoxious not
only to the animadversions of that order, but
. a a
to other censures ol yet a much graver cna
actcr.
In respcet to this General, the letter of reca'l
observes, parenthetically; but with an acumen
worthy ol more man a -nasty notice, mat
some of my specifications of his misconduct
re hardly consistent with "your I my oracial
reports and communications.
ng for the trials, I will here briefly stale, that,
unfortunately, 1 followed that General's own
reports, writteu and oral that my conficence,
ent him, in advance, had been but very slight
y shaken. as early as the first week in October
that up to that time, from our entrance into
this city, 1 had been at the desk, shut out from
personal intercourse with my brother officers.
nd that it was not till after that confinement,
that facts, conduct, and motives, began to pour
in upon me.
A word as to the Dth article ol war. lean
ruly y that, in thisand other communications
have not designed the slightest disrespect to
the Commander-in-chief of the Army and Na
uy of ihi United States. No doubt he, like
myself and all others, may fall into mistak.s
as lo particular men; and 1 cannot, having my
self been behind the curtain, admit the legal
fiction that all acts of the Secretary are the
acts of the President. Yet, in my defensive
statements, I have offered no wanton discour
tesy to thehead of the War Department, al-
mougn wiai luuciiunarr 1 noi iu uie lerauu
eration of the above mentioned article.
Closing my correspondence with the Depart
ment until after the approaching trial,
1 have the honor to remain,
Respectfully,
Your most ob't sv't,

L'piixctic Fits Of twenty seven years nnd six
months, cured by the use of this Truly Wonderful
Medicine.
Rend the following remarkable case of the son of
Wm. Secore, Esq., of Philadelphia, afilicted wiih
Epihptic Fits twenty seven years and six months.
Atter traveling through England, Scotland, Ger
many, and France, consulting the most eminent
physicians, and expending for medicine, medical
treatment and advice three thousand dollars, re
turned with his son to this country, in November
lat, wiihout receiving any benefit whatever, and
was cured by using Hakt's Vegetable Extract.
Mr. Wm. Secore's letter to Dr. Hart:
I have spent over three thousand dollars for med
icinc and medical attendance. 1 was advised to taka
a tour to Europe with him. wLich I did. I first vis
ited England. I consulted the most eminent physi
cians there in respect to his case; they examined him
and prescriled accordingly. I remained there thre
months without perceiving any chanjr; for the better,
w hich cost me about two hundred and fifty dollars,
pocketed by the phytieinn, and the most that I receiv
ed was their opinion that my son's case was hopeless
and Positivelv Incurable. I accordingly left En-
fland, traveled through Scotland, Germany and
'ranee, and returned home in t ie month of Novem
ber last, with my son as far from being cured as when
1 left. I saw your advertisement in one of the New
York papers, and concluded to try Hart's Vegetable
Extract, seeing your statements and certificates of so
many cures, some of twenty nnd thirty years stand
ing, and I can assure you 1 am not sorry 1 did so, as
by the use of Hart's V egetable Extract alone, be was
restored to Perfect Health. His reason, which was
so far gone as to unfit him for business, is entirely re
stored, with the prospect now before him ot life,
health and usefulness. He is how 28 years of age.
and 27 years 6 months of this time has been afflicted

with this dreadful malady called Epileptic Fits: and
until she commenced taking the Extract, she suffered
with attacks ol tits, almost incessantly, and so se
verely as to threaten to drive reason from its throne.
and render her insane Idiotic.
Physicians pronounced her incurable, and rauld da
nothing more for her. W e had almost despaired of a
cure, when neanng 01 tne remarkable cures pertormeu
by the Vegetable Extract, we determined to give it a
trial. The result has exceeded our most sanguine ex-'
pectation, as by its use sIr' is free from a most dread
ful malady, and restored to Perfect Health.
Should any one feel desirous of seeing her. and of
ascertaining the particulars ol the ease, such wish
may be gratihcd by calling on or addressing a letter
to me, past-paid, at mv residence, two miles from tba
village of Yonkers, estchester. New York.

Teething. Worm, CostivcneKs, &c., will produce
this disorder. In all such cases the Vegetable Extract
is the only medicine which can be relied on w ith any
degree of safety. Mothers w bo have small children
should remember this. Many a Child, the past year.
who has suffered with this complaint, and lias been
given over by physicians to die, has been restored by
the use ot but one bottle ol Hart's V ege table Extract.
The child of William Anderson, North Fourth
street, Williamsburgh, aged '20 months, had fits con
stantly for tight weeks. A consultation of physi
eians was calico, wnoaeciueu mai ine case was a
hopeless one, and the child must die. W hilst the
child was in this dangerous state Mr. Anderson call
ed at my office and obtained a bottle of the Extract,
dministered it to the child, and the result was a par
acet restoration of health.
The son of Mr. Robert McGcc. corner of Sullivaa '
and Prince streets, New York, was severely afflicted'
with tits, in this case also the physicians held a con-
ultat ion and decided that they could do no more.
and that nature must effect its own cure, or the boy -
must die. 1 he egetable L.x tract was administered
to him whilst in a ht, by one of the attending Dhvsi-
cians. itseuccts were almost instantaneous, ihe
tits was broken, and the boy restored to health. Mr. -McGee
says, "I shall never again be without the med-, ,
icine in my house, if I can avoid it, for fear that some '
rw 1 .... J4--.
of the rest of my children may be attacked ia
the same way. I consider the medicine invaluable.
