His dcoth, liowever, can liardly be assign ed to tlio otl'oct of any partioular ma lady, but ratlior to tho brcaking up of tho vital forces incidont to his ad- anced nge. Mr. Scott was born in Cabot March 10. 1809. At the aco of fourtecn ycars lio becan work for a Cabot morcliant liaiucd Pcrkins, receivinc his board and clotbes for his wages. In 1S27 lio canie to Montpelier to attend fccliool, and later, for tliirty-four years, was associated as clerk and partnor with the flrm of Baldwin & Hutohins. In 1801 Mr. Scott encaccd in tlio ceneral nicrcbandise business in tho store in tlio Willnrd building now occupied by Abnott & Bailey. In lhis ho retired from active business life, and had not since been prominently identifled witli business enterpriscs. For eighteen years ho had boen a director of tlio Montpelier National Bank. He was treasurer of tho town from 1SG1 to 1870, and connty commissioner for two years following 1800. , liis eariiest church connoction was with wliat, in the last generation, bas been known as Bethany church, and this counection was interrupted only by death. As regularly as the Sabbath came he was seen iu his pow, anu as ho was rarely ill his steady and puuc- tual presence in the lionse of worship was as certaiu as the e.xistence tbere of tho rnaterial flxtures of tho sanctuary. His heart was with Beth any and to its flnancial support he freely contributed. Though not liaray in appearauce Mr. Scott' s physical resources had been well husbanded. Day by day, for years past, 111 all seasons, Jie was at the bank ot which he was a director, walking much of the time from his home on Loomis street. In 1834 ho raarried Jeauuette H. Langdon, who some years ago had gone betore. Une dangiiter, JUrs. Andrew J.

Ono of tho plcasnnt incidents of nn ovontiul day in MontnoUor wns tho sitrpriso given at tho Stato Houso to Gon. Smith "Bnldy" Smith n natlve of St. Albans. but whose iionio is now in Philadelnhia. Ovor a week ago a hronzo memorinl tublet, nearing a medaiiion ot tho goneral, was sent from Philadolnhia to this city as a gif t to tho 5tato from the sol- diers of other States, who admired Gen. Smith. Gov. Stickney nnd ex Gov. Pincrco selected a snaco nt the right of tho eiitranco, to Representn- tives- nati 011 wmcii to place the tablet and Sorgeant-at-Arms Brock had it mouiited tbero. Tho uewsnaner men woro-let into the secrot somo timo niro. but worn pledged to kcop tlio matter a sorrr t untit tho tnblet had been seen by Gen. Smith ns a snrpriso for him wns plan lied. Tho snrpriso cume verv near bo ing a fuiluro lor tho Freo Press thnt nioniing contained nn n'U'ouncoment regarding tho tablel, . . at for the protnpt aetion of Dr. Brigham, as the genoral was about to purcbase apaper, the whole all'air would havo been spoiled. About eleven o'clock 011 Saturdnv Genoral S111it.l1, nccompanied by A(i miral Clnrk, Mrs. Clark, nnd Mayor Boutwcll diovu to the Stato Houso. Lpon arriviiitr in the corridor. tho genoral was watched by the party with koen interest as be wandered about inspecting mementoes of rhe Rebellion mnong which were his regi- mentoi cotors. .Mrs. Ulark tinally guided the old oflicer to a position in front of tlio tablet. That the ccneral was surprisod was verv aimarent. As he comprehended what the tablet renlly was ho started and as his eyes filled, with tears he abrnptly left the party, and going to the other sido of the corridor strnggled to recoverfrom 111s emotion. 1'iiially. .Mrs. Clark led tho general back to his former posi tion, but ho was still too moved to speak. 'ihe attair was entirelv mformal nnd re.sembled more a family gathering than a state oecasion. The general spent bome time in visiting the dill'er ent rooms at the State House and in specting tlie relics there. 1 he memonal tablet is of simple but pretty desig,n. Beneath the profile of Gen. Smith is the following inscription in nysea letters: "This tablet is nresented to Vermont by sokliers from other States, who admire so much her great soldier son, Brevet- M.ijor-General llham Farrar Smith, United States Army. The extracts here from the letter of the assistant secre tary of war, C. A. Dana, to Gen. Grant, dated Dec. iii, 1803, show that at a crisis in the nation's life, he'was in the thoughts of Lincoln, stanton and Grant, as the genertrf best fitted for the most imp rtant command. ' The surest means of getting the rebels altogether out of East Tennessee is to be found in the armv of the Patomae. This naturally led to ycur second proposition, namely, that eitlitr Sherman or W. F. Smith should be put in command of the army " . Both the secretary of war and Gen. Halleck said Gen. W. F. Smith would be the best per- son to try . The secretary ot war and Gen. Halleck agree with you in thinking that it would be, on the whole, much better to select him ,' "Series I, Vol. XXXI, page 4,")7, offi- cial lecords, Union and Confederate ar mies of the Rebellion."
