From tha National Intelligencer.
There are few American pa'riots, whatev
er be their party predilections, whosa hearts
will not swell within their bosoms in the pe
rusal of the suhjoined artii le. Fur ourselves,
e are free to confess that there is mitre than
ne pannage of it which moved our feelings in
more than one way.
The following excellent description of General
Scull", entrance into the City ef Mexico i. from
the pen nl an eyetwitneu, Mr. War land, now the
editor of the Lowell Journal, who served m the
Mexican Campaign, ft appeared in that paper ou
tha annivenary of tha day.
General Scott't triumphant entry entry into
the City of Mexico at a Conqueror hit de
parture from it at a Prisoner.
Five years ago this morninc; General Scott,
at the bead of his brilliant staff made his tri
utnbant entry into the ancient capital of the
Azircs. He had already ordered up a portion
if tl;e troops lu the Grand phtCit, and as, at a
little after nine o'clock, he rode up from the
weeti-rn gsnta amotig them, in full uniform,
and mounted on hi. aplenid charifer, tha spec
ibcle whs one of tivep and thrilling interest
to every American. The stars and stripes
floated to tin: breeze from the National Palace.
The old Citilieiiral loomed magnificently up
on one aide of the spuare, and from the bal
cuutenoi the old Corlez edi&ces on the other,
ll.e .Sjmiii-h and Mexican girls were seen to
wnve their white bniidkerchirfs as emblems
of peace, and silent petitioners for favor from
the advancing conqueror. Beneath the pil
lars of the baXHar. and under the shadow of
the Cathedral, niiht be seen grim Mexicnns,
won ling from their sernpe. and bettenth their
IhihJ sombreros sonderatrucb at the idea
ol their beautiful capital of 250,000 souls hav
ing thus autlUeiilv lalleli into the hands of less
than H.O'JO American troops.
A. llie lieiit-ml rode tlnouirh the Urand
Pluza, amid the Yankee blue jackets drawn
up in perfect order on either side, and the
!ea J cannon, whose thunders but the day
belote were heard with fcuch fearful effect at
Chi J ulli r, inlt'd here nnd there, hll dis
cipime tor the tu -iDetit seemed to be forgot
ten by the gallant aoldters.
They loved their chief to adoration. They
had been with him in his perilous march from
Vera C'rnz, and bad followed him into the
bluze every victorious battle-field, and now on
this morning to see him triumphantly enter
ing the enemy's capital, their hearts thrilled
with joy and exultation. Throwing of all re- j
straint, as tha old hero came forward upon his
prancing need, the hearty huzzas and cheers
rent the air long am1 loud. As the General
link off l i rap, in acknowledgement of the
cordial greeting from hit victotious men, one
of the bauds siruek up our national air, and
gain, uud louder than before, the huzzaa
broke from the lips of the exultant troops.
General Scott, dismounting at the gate of the
National Palace, entered the grand hall or
laloon, from whence the edicts of Viceroys,
and Governors, and Presidents, for centuries,
had been issued, and immediately wrote an
order annoucing his occupancy of the Mexican
Uapiul. In that announcement, a copy of
which is before us, he says: "Under the fa
vor ol God, the valor of the army, after many
glotious victories, has hoisted the colors of our
country in the capital of Mexico, nnd on the
Palace of its Got ernment. Tha honor of the
army and the honor of the country call for
the best behavior on the part of all. The val
iant must, to obtain the approbation of God
and country, be sober, orderly and merciful.
His noble brethren in arms mu not. be deaf
to this appeal from their commander and
Oti the afternoon of tho sanne d ir General
Scott aain addressed the troops iu those
words: "The General-in-Chief calls upon hi.
brethren in arms to return, both in public and
private wuia:.ip, tlimiks and gratitude to God
for the signal triumphs which they have re
cently achieved tor their country. Beginning
ill) the 19th of August and ending the 14th
met in , tin. army has ifallantlv fouo-ht IK
way through the fields and fort of Contr- ras,
San Autouia, Cherubusco, Molino del Key,
Chepulpec, and gates of San Cosine and Tae-ub-ia.
into the capital of Mexico. When the
very limited numbers who have performed
ni.'h brilliant deeds shall have become known,
ilie wrli will be Hstonishefl, and our country
men tilleil with joy iid utliuirution."
In such fitting language did the victorious
conqueror aililress the men under his coin
ttiHi.il ii j. i in hi? I; iiiiniljnt entry into the Mex
- -.it c.iuiiiil : Ho sell hi.v w ords were heed
ed, hiiJ witli what tie vol ion nnd patriotism lie
proceeded at oin-e to the woik of securing the
grest cl'jeci ! his mission an honorable
p-iiice j known to the nation and the world.
There never was an army whose bearing and
conduct in a conquered country reflected such
honor upon ilsell or upon Us own conutry as
the American army in Mexico. Upon it en
trance into the- capital, the Republic had no
no Government, and it therefore became the
Klt durv ol General Scott to iive the people
an adminietratjon which should protect I lit in
in their rights of properly and their
religious observance..
Mere it i that the victorious Chief dis
played th-ise high civil and administrative tal
ents which won the admiration of the whole
army, and proved his unquestionable claim to
the possession of the higher attributes ot the
statesman as well as of the soldier. Y shall
not dwell upon the administration of affairs
during General Scott's occupancy of the city
of Mexico further than to say that it was
brilliant, and in all respects successful. Tbro'
his devotion, perseverance, and incessant la
bors, peace was also finally secured.
We have briefly sketched the Conqueror's
triumphant entrance into the National Palace
on the morning of September 14th. Now
the scene chauges, and the picture is revers
ed. In six months, to a day, from the date of
his own announcement of the occupancy of
the capital. General Scott stood in the Nation
al Palace a prisoner, and the chains forged
by Amerieuii hand at home. He was sum
moned before a Court of Inquiry in the Pal
ace; and as he stood up before his judges, his
inferiors, his tall and commanding form the
observed of all observers, pleading his rights,
modestly alluding to his own services, and
portraying the wrongs he had received, one
could not but say, "alas,- there is reason to
complain of the. ingratitude of Republics!"
On the morning of tha 14th of March fol
lowing his entrance into the capital, he stood
before the Court in the Palace and addressed
his accusers. His words, as be stood bold
ly and respectfully befor tbena in tba grsat
saloon we have referred to, were aa follows:
"Here in the capital of Mexico, conquered
by the American Arms under my command,
I rind myself but a prisoner at large the
chief criminal before this court. Stricken
down from a high command, from a high mil
itary position, the highest, perhaps, ever oc
cupied by any individual since the days of
the rather of his country the immortal
Washington I feel deeply wounded ; my mil
itary pride has been cast down into the dust,
not by the public enemy, but by the long arm
of power from home. All that could be done
in that quarter to degrade and humble me,
has been done. But, sustained by the Al
mighty's arm, feeling strong in conscious rec
titude, strong in mind and body, I bid Dxri-
There was not an American in Mexico who,
as he listened to these words, and saw the
old Hero, like t'olumbus in chains, dishonor
ed by hit own country, did not feel mortified
and ashamed that he should have received
such treatment The whole matter of the
cou't, as all know, proved lo be a msffnifi
cent farce, and was finally dropped as if the
only oriiect ot Its instigators had been to de
grade Scott upon the very theatre of his glo
rious renown.
And now the scene changes again;
On the morning of the 22d of April it be
came known to some few that General Scott
was about to leave the capital of Mexico for
his home. In the evening of that day a large
assemblage of the friends of the gallant he
ro collected in front of his quarters in the city
of Mexico, and bade him (arewell by a grand
serenade. Several very appropriate and touch
ing airs were played, and at the close of the
very spii it-stirring sounds of "Hail to the
Chief," the commanding form of the General
was seen to come to the front of the balcony,
from whence he bowed his thanks, silently, it
is true, bat the feelings of many a bounding
and warm heart responded, and three loud
and hearty cheers were civen for General
Scott, at he disappeared from the window.
The next morning there was an affecting
scene in front of his quarters, as he came out
to start upon his journey to Vera Cruz. The
riBle guard was drawn up to receive him. and
as he passed they presented arms to their be
loved commander for the last time, and shed
tears like children ; and so affected was the
old Hero that he could hardly get into his
carriage. Officers and men crowded around
him, and as he was too much overcome to re
ceive them all, those who had not the happi
ness -of shaking him by the hand wera glad
to get a sight of him at be departed. Those
wno naa not even a chance of seeing him
mounted their horses and followed him on the
road, determined that he who had led them
trom victory to victory should not leave the
valley of his great operations without one
adieu. Around his carriage for he was too
much exhausted by his heavy labors, and the
emotion of parting with his brothers in arms,
to ride on horseback as it proceeded along
the causeway to El Penon. the officers crowd
ed, and as last as one could give the 'God bless
you. General.' snd fall back, his place was
supplied by another.and so the adieus contin
ued for a long way on the road.
And thus did Winfield Scott leave Mexico
going, virtually, a prisoner from the capital
which but a few months before he had enter
ed as a triumphant conqueror! Will not the
people bear this fact in mind, now that they
have an opportunity of bestowing their lofti
est honors upon one who has reflected such
lofty honor nnd renown upon their country ?
Hosts Manufactures A pound of facts
is worth a Ion of speculation. A single cir
cumstance will often csrry conviction, when
all arguments tall ujHin the listener without
effect. We have a case in point. Samuel
Coll, w hose name is given to the most des
lruttive'ah.iing iron in use in the civilized
world, silled f,,r Kurope in the last steamer,
to m;ke arrangements to employ four hun
dred men in mi uiufacturinu his wt:ip n for
the foreign mirket. The Hartford Times
a free trade Pierce paper, regrets that he
was notable to employ this force in Hartford,
where he has now a I irg rntnuf ictory, of
arras. The Times admits the advantages
which the city now derives from his manu
factory, and of course is sensible tint the ben
efit wovld increase in the ratio of the increase
of his establishment. Here now is a practi
cal fact brought home to the judgment of the
Times. There is not a paper in the country,
north or south, that would not encourage the
establishment of such a maniifatory in its
neighborhood. And yet hundreds, with the
ilartford Times among them, oppose the pol
icy which contemplate the employment of
thousands of men in this country, instead of
working them abroad. What is beneficial to
one locality, roast be desirable everywhere
else. , Hartford profits by Colt's manufactory,
and the free trade Times deplores the ne
cessity which impels him to procure his work
to be done abroad ; but the Timet and its co
adjutors in mischief, are so blinded by politi
cal prejudice. Mat they cannot discern the ad
vantages which would accrue to the nation
from the adoption of the policy which they ad
mit would benefit Hartford.
Gen. Stt amaf the lep!e.
The Loco editor from the Union down, are
alarmed and enraged hecauseGen. Scott in
the discharge of public duty has visited por
tions of the West, and hat been spontaneous
ly and enthusiastically welcomed by the peo
ple of all partiea aad classes. The New
V-irk Tribune examines the charge of the Lo
cofoco press . that Gen. Scott has taken the
stump as A politician, showt that he has not
mada a tingle political speuch, and syyt he
has only paused, at natural intervals in hi
Western trip, ) he did on hit triumphal way
from Uany la frontier to Washington, after the
battle of Lundy's Lane; or on hit return from
that frontier, in 1837; or on his way to the
North Eastern boundary; or in 1848, when
he returned to the United Stales, as the con
queror of Mexico, hailed by the people at ev
ery step. The Tribune says if he is on the
stump now he was then, and has been since
the glorious campaign on the Niagara fron
tier, for the people will hail his name as a
house-hold word,, wbereever be goes.
Soup BowL
Not a Bad Joke. The Natchez Courier
says that recently in that city a Democratic
speakar mistook Hon. Wm. R. King for the
Whig candidate for the Vice Presidency, and
proceeded deliberately to establish that ha
had been one of the most inconsistent politi
cians in the Union, "24 years in the Senate,
and on every side of every question that cam
up, etc nit turn again.
A Perfect Staape.
The Locofocos of Virginia in attempting a
system of organization, appointed persons who
had been leading, vigilant Locofocos to the
post of Vigilant committee men. Upon an
nouncing these names in Western Virginia,
it is found that the great mats of the party
there is going for General Scott- Such deser
tion has not been seen for an age. We find
the following vary significant communicstion
in the Kanawha Republican. Tbeyaretignt
that show very plainly which way the cur
rent ol public opioion it setting:
For til Republican

Mr. Newtoe: Wt find that our Demo
cratic frienda have appointed us oo tbeir com
mittee of Vigilance for this county. Th.y of
course expect us to De vigilant. In this, they
shall not be disappointed ; but they must not
think bard or us il we prefer to be vigilant
for the country, rather than the Democratic
party, and for the brave old patriot and sol
dier, who was vigilant for ut when some of
us were in our mother's arms, rather than
the present Yankee candidate of Democracy.

Mr. Newtos Dear Sir I learn from a
friend that I have been appointed on the
Democratic committee of vigilance for this
I must decline the appointment for two, rea
sons; nrtt, because there are no rierce men
in my region to be vigilant over; and second,
because I expect, on this occasion, to go it all
over for Scott my self. Yours truly.

Ma. Newton Dear Sib Permit us to
inform the "Central Democratic Vigilance
Commmittee," through the columns of tha
Republican, that from the very best of reasons,
we cannot, will not, aid in the election of
Pierce and King; and instead of bringing
Democratic votes to the polls, tf now declare
that, for ourselves, we cannot lend our own
votes or influence against the champions of
our whole country. Yes, sir, we now intend
to support Scott, Graham, and the Union.
The whole Union, we arc fully persuadad,
will be perfectly safe nnder the control of him
who has to gallantly defended onr common
country at the North and at tha South, and
who has ever proved himself ready to sptl.
his life's blood at the foot of the flag-staff that
so proudly bears aloft the glorious stars aad'
stripes of the land of Washington and our
worthy ancestors.

Scott's Trial hj the- People.
The eloquent Ogden Hoffman, in a speech
to the "acres of Whigs" who assembled in tha
city of New York, to ratify the nomination of
Scott and Graham, thus alluded to the arrest
of Gen. Scott in Mexico, by order ef an ad
ministration that shrunk from the task of af
terwards trying him. The issue is now made
up, and the scar-covered defendant "puts
himself upon the country" for trial by the peo
ple: "Many a time, I thought that justice would
be done to the venerable soldier; and, not
withstanding my weariners, I could speak for
hours upon a subject so pleasing to my leel-
ings. 1 remember when 1 was a member ot
Congress, when he was about to leave his
family for an inhospitable climate, it was there
I first knew W infield Scott. He was a Whig

for the fact! Rome gave a triumph to the
victorious citizen. Kngland, for less than half
the duty Scott performed, has made a Duke.
Seott was recalled by the administration.
lie bowed to the edict, returned home with
hut one f iithful servant, (and he was an Irish
man,) and the first place he entered was the
litrl village church, where, forgetting all his
.victories, he fervently returned thanks to the
Divine Creator, for hia bounties. 1 say Scott
has been most nnjustly treated; he was ar
rested and never tried. We will try him next
"The Widow's Crust.,
Magnanimity i conceded to be a virtue.
The man who perils his own life to save that
of another, performs more than is required ot
him in the decalogue, but he who has the
opportunity to peifjim a deed of kindness,
without violating his official duties, and neg
lects to improve it, is wanting io the better
qualities which distinguish man from the brute.
And yet, when a bill was m Uongress.propostng
to allow the widow of President Haurisos
the pitiful remnant of his first year's salary.

The Plaindealer devotes two columns to
show that Gen. Scott has received from the
government $200,000 for thirty-seven years
of arduous services. This turn includes large
travelling expenses,and the justice of the pay
is proven by the fact that from it General
Scott has been able to lay by nothing.
For his services Gen. Scott has received
less than (5.000 a year, and General Jack-
sow received for seven years military aervices.
