But I providentially heard of "Jnyne's Carminative," as an effectual ! cure for bowel complaint, and immediately j despatched a messenger to a town seven-! teen miles off for a bottle. Bv the use of this medicine, in less than thirty-six hours j the disease vvas checked, and by its constant use tor a lew uays, me cniiu was restored to perfect health.

Scott was expected to come down I . from Mexico as soon as the Couit ol Inoui rv aaiourned, and leave for the U. States. The Court of Inquiry had Been in sess ion ,n the City of Mexico. " Gen Scott had delivered a Speech before the Court, characterized bv much warmth and feelinir. in which he complained that he had been struck down,! and brought -) forward, as chief criminal," &(., On the 17th of vl arch. -Gen.. AVorth, "for the welfare ai.d hnrmonv vof the service," withdrew the aocusations made in his appeal against Gen Scott; whereupon "General Scott, 1 alter ome remarks, withdrew his charges agsinst Gen. Pillow and Col. Duncan. This left, ot 'ourse, no duties for the Court of Inquiry o perform; and we hope the matter will be allowed to rest ' at this point. Military TuFicers may have their piiyaie griefs, ami i they may demand trials before Court Mar- tials; but the public judgment, after all, is what they arc looking to, and that judg ment, they ought to have the good sense to know, will ultimately settle down ac cording to right, truth,and justice. There is enough glory for all;.of them. The peo ple thank them for . their services, and will hold , those services jn grateful remem brance; and they, can add nothing to their reputation, either as officers or men, ;by disputes and contentipnst among them selves. i Every thing was quiet in.Mexico. i Gen.

Not withstanding the withdrawal by Gen. Worth of his charges against Gen. Scott, it seems the. latter officer still entertains the bitterest feelings. - He told the Court that the President had treated hioi with gross injustice; that Gen. Worth might go forth rejoicing in the plenitude of Execu tive favor"; that he (Scott) was 'done" with Worth ."forever"; and that his "atti tude" towards his "accusers" meaning the President and Secretary of War, was that of -"defiance'? High language in deed for a military officer to use towards the civil povver! Beyond all question the President did right in the matter between Worth and Scott; and the latter, instead of fretting and raging in this way, oucht to thank the Administration for having put him in a position to win so many splendid victories. President Polk-owes it to the dignity of the office he holds, ns well as to the American people, to teach refracto ry Generals though the laurels of a hun- idced battles should adorn their brows that he-is lheir perioi? and' that they are expected, at all-times,-not only to defer to the civil power, but to do it with respect aml decency. Justthink.of the "attitude" ed by Gen. Scott! ' He comes home, breathing "defiance "' Jis partizans and "Pel familiars" throng about himThe bids for ,,1C Presidency; he receives the nomi nation; and then, burning with desire for vengeance, suppose he enters the Presiden- Chair.

Carpenter, introduced himself walked out and remained until his hosi be to the merchants of Tallahassee, and said came uneasy and instituted search, when he had come to buy cotton. For funds, h:? had a certfficate of deposit on the Bank of New York for $6,000, which he inclos- ed to Brown, Brothers & Co. taking care to have a lad as witness that the letter was deposited in the Post Office. In a few days he began to draw on B. B. & Co , selling his drafts freely, Until he had drawn for the whole $6,000, when he absolutely refused to draw another dollar, as he had exhausted his deposit. Alas! there was no certificate of deposit in the letter which Brown, Brothers & Co. received, no money in the Bank ot N. York, and when the drafts got back to Tallahassee, there was no W. S. Carpenter there. The buyers of the exchange thereupon concluded that Mr. W. S. Carpenter, though "tall, well made, with nuhurn whiskers and goatee," was after all nothing but a swindler.
