Ci'en. Scott's Autoblogrrapiiy.
Sheldon &. Co. haVe jast published the
"Memoirs of Gea. Scott, written by him
self." whi?a have heen promised for
seven months, and on weich the. General
has heen engaged for nearly two years.
The' ore comprised in two volumes, and
extend down to, 'he, period when he re
tired from active service. The latter
years, however, are but brie Gy touched.
We extract Leiotv some interesting par
ticulars of Gen. Scott's share in the
events which immediately preceedttd the
present war, as well as incidents in the
Lieutenant Geueral's earlier career.
Scott, a? a young lawyer, wis present
at the tnai of Aaron Kiirr. He
concerning Burr's acquittal:
"This is to be regretted not that the
thirst for blood was nut slaked on the oc
casion; hut because, there never haviisg
been an execution in the United Sirica
for the highest of crimes, our people
were, in ar.d ISfil, still untaught a
roost needful lesson the playing a'
treason is a dangerous game! Hence to
threaten treason has bacon. an ordinary
party device in nominaim Pre?ident.
and in factious debates even en the fl nir
of Congress; hence, nullificaiicn in 15Ti2-'o-3,
and hence the present ( iri")
mighty rtbellio'n. It i a striking fact
that three of our ex Vice President?
Aaron Burr, J. C Ca!hot;n and J. C. j
Breckinridge became, eoch in his day.
a leader of treason.
' When the victory of Bueni Viia
readied Major General Brooke, (a ircle
old soldier,) commanding at New Or
leans, and a friend ;f Major General
Taylor, he rushed with th report in hand
through' the streets to the Exchn-, nd
threw the whole ciiy-iato a f renzy of joy.
By and by came the new? that the ?ar
nud stripes waved ovr Vera Cruz and
its castle, and "Brooke, aho a friend oi
mine, w.ts aaain ear to spread the re-
v, "I 1 1 111
port. cnieDody in me crown cancel cut,
IIuw maamea has Soctt Lt?' Brooke
was delighted to reply. 4J.es than a hun
dred.' 'That won't do,' wt-.s promptly
rejoined. 'Taylor always loses thou
sands. He is the man for my money.'
Only a few faint cheers were heard lor
Vera Cruz. The lone: butcher'.-, bill was
wanted. When I received-friend Brooke's
letter giving'thes? details, I own that my
poor human nature wis piqued for a mo
ment ; and I said: 'Nevermind. Taylor
is a l-.OUlsiuiftM. Wo ehll ii Jo ti'nc'
liear the voire of the middle, the norih
ern and eastern Slates. They will esti
mate vicioiies on different principles.'-
But I was mistaken. The keynote raised
ia New Orleans was taken up all oer
the land.
October 22. I emphatically, as has
been seen, called the attention of the
President to the necessity of strong gar
rieons in all the forts below the principal
commercial cities of the Southern State,
including, by name, the forts in Pensa
cola harbor, etc.
October 31. I suggested to the Sec
retary of War that a circular should at
once be sent to such of those fens as
had garrisons, to be on the alert against
surprises and sudden assaults. ,
After a long confinement to my bed in
New. York, I cacie to this city, (Wash
ington) December-12. Next day I per
sonally urged upon the Secretary of War
the same views, viz : Strong garrisons in
th Southern forts those of Charleston
and Pccsacc'a harbors, at cr.ee ; those
on Mobile lay and the tVlississipp:, be
low New Orleans, next, etc.. etc. I again
pointed out the organized companies and
the recruits at the principal depots avail
able for the curpore. The Secretary
d?d not concur in oue of - my view?, when
1 1 begged Lin to procure for ma an early
cerview n-;:h ihe Fre?:dect, tbat I
i trsisht make o;je. flfvrt rayre to save tbe
j Ivtti and the Urioa.

added : 'We have a vessel of War (:!ie
Brooklyn) held in readiness at Norfolk,
ana he wuuid then send' three bundled
.iieii, in her, frofti Fortress Monroe, to
Charleston.' To which I replipd, ftrrt.
Thru s many men cou'd cot be with
drawn from that garrison, tut could Le
.aten frim Nev York. Next, that it
would thca b loo late, rs the South Car
olina Comct:s:oners would have the
gamo in their own haruis-by first using
and then cutting the wires; that, as
here wa? not a soldier in Fort Sumter,
any handful o? arn:l fcetewioniits might
seie and occupy it, etc.
Here the remark may be permitted,
that, if tbe Secretary's ih'ree hundred
men had then (or seme time later) been
eut to Forts Moultrie and Sumter, bcth
wovd now have been in the po:ts$tcn
of the United States, and not a battery
behw them, could have been erected by
iht Secessionists. Contequemly, the ac
cess to those fcria .from the sea would
now (the end of March, 1861,) be un
obstructed and free.
On the reception of Mr. Floyd, et
Richmond, tho Examiner pronounced a
ulogy upon hirn in which the following
passage occur.? :
The invented by General Scctt
to stop secession was. like all other cam-.
nrii'Tts devised bv h'UMvery-' alJrr Wi-m
je,aiis au.j lltariy certaioof general suc-
coss. -The bouthern btates are rtnl of
arsenals and fort, commanding thir
rivers and strategic poimi. Gen. Scon
desired to transfer the army of the Unit
ed Slates to these fori? as speedily and
as quietly as possible. The Suutnern
States could not cut cfT communication
between the Government and th fort
resseses without a great fleet, which they
cannot build for years or take them by
!;tnd without one hundred thousand men,
many hundred million dollars, several
. .ampaisn and many a bloody seiv.
Had Scon been able to have got these
forts in the condii'lan he desired them to
he, the Southern Confederacy would not
now exil.
The same day. December lo, I wrote
the following nc? :
"Lieutenant General S ou begs th
President to pardon him for supplying,
iu this note, what he omitted to say th:s
mornincr,' at the interview with whtcn he
was honored by the Pr-ilent. 1. Long
prior to the Force bit! (March 2, 1533),
prior to The iss;;e of his prcvbmaiion.
and, in part, prior to ". passage cf the
ordinance of nullification President
Jackson, under the eel of ?rarch 3. !S7
-Huthrizing the employ ment of tte
land and naval forces" can -e-J rein-forcemc-ii'.s
to bo scut to Fort Mouhtre.
u,d a thiop-of-war (the Natchfts). with
two revenue cutters, to be sent tc Charles
ton harbor Qiii u- der Sc.xr). in order to
prevent th seizure of that fat by the
utilizers; and i3. To insure the execu
tion of the revenue laws General
Scott himself arrived at Chariest.m the
day fter the passage of the ordinance
oi nullification." and many of "the addi
tional companies were then en route for
the me destination.
President Jackson famaiiarly said at
the time : "That by lHe asseinl'laau '
those forces, for lawful purposes, he was
not making war upon South Carclira ;
bat that if South Carolina ettaiA-ed, it
would be South Carolina that made war
bpon the United States."
General Scott, who received h-s first
instruction (oral) from President Jack
son, in the temporary absence cf the
Secretsry of War (General Cass), re
members those expressions well.

The vote of the North-West is the
strongest gus.rran.ty yet prefTered c( the
perpetuity of the Union. The aliena
tion of the North-West has been plotted
and sought for years. To this end un
counted lodges of "Knights of the Gol
den Circle," '-Sons cf Liberty," ccc
have been organized. To this end New
England has been persistently defamed
and reviled by the basest of renegade
sons. To this end, constant stimulus has
been given to Western jealousy and hate
of the East.',-. The Puritanism and fan
aticism of New England have been in
culpated as plunging the country into a
gigantic civil war fcr tho benefit of her
cotton mills 03 if cotton mills luxuriat
ed ia the dearth and dearness of cottcn
and now the Great West responds by
larger, more dechive majorities for the
War, a heartier support to tha Adminis
tration, than are given in the East. And
the rattle of riven fetters in Maryland
is more than paralleled by the crash of
tho priran-housa in Missouri.
So let us rest in the confident assur
ance that the-Unicn will endure forever,
under the guardianship and protection of
tha Great because Free North-West!

If a military cflker puts in an applica
tion for a furlough on the simple ground
of urgent private, business, he is about as
likely to get it as he is by beig struck
by lightning. A Main officer applied
for one, however, stating that if it was
tot granted he should lose -30,000. This
attracted attention at headquarters, and
the officer desired to forward a statement
of how he would lose il. He did so to
the effect that he had been in the army
without leave of absence for two years;
that he' was engaged to a young lady
worth $-50,000; that there was another
fellow after her, and that she had written
to him that if he aid not come home and
marry her right away, he would have
the other man. He got his furlough.

brought through safely. ; .
Gen. Stanley has been in neatly nil
