" Worth like Ids. .AlloW us to indulge in • a brief re
trospect of 'the career of General Scott, 'less to in
form you of that with which, as a prominent. part
ofyour Country's History you are of course fami
liar, than to indulge' our own pleasurable feelings
in the retrospect.' s •
General, Winfield Scott was born on the 13th
' June 1785, in the State of Virginia,and was educat
ed for the bar, to Whith he was :admitted in 18011,
with the' most flattering prospects of success. In
. 1807, when the outrage co:nmitted upori that "db. -
mental" vessel-the Chesapeake, following as it did
' • the British "orders in Council." end a long series
of wrongs and insult. had inflamed the country;
• • with an earnest desire to ,vindicate its honOr and,
- chastise our 'haughty foe, young- Suitt, partaking
• •in the general feeling, at once abandoned a proths•
,sion. of whiel tte.was . formed to be , the 'ornament,
and entered into the military seryicenf his country
'as a Captain of Light A'rlillery; and has ever Since
continued in the profeision of which heis nowthe
- - acknowledged and honored held, the pride of his
' countrYmen and the idol of his companions in arms.
--On-the s 6th-July-1.812,-shortly-after-the-commencess,
Silent of- the war. he was prinioted tollie rank_ of
Lieutenant Colonel; and on the 13th of October
. in thesaineyear, %vas present as
_a volunteer s at his
s. -sewn earnest' entreaty and urgent request, in the
bloody battle at Queenstown Heights, so
. trous,but at the same time so glorious for the Ameri
can arms. ' •
• .Cols..Van.Rensellaer and Fen”wiek who succes
sively had the cominandsbeing disabled by their
wounds; the, commillid of the gallant handful of
Americans who lind crossed to the Canatlasidesthen
reduced to six hundred men,devolvcd on Col. Scott;
and with this small,,but:Spartao band, he most
gallantly sustained the contest against the over
whelming numbers_ of the enemy, untiffitll hope
- of• aid from the American shore being lost through
• the refusal of the Militia to cross, on the plea - of
Constitutional privilege, and, with his nuinhers re
duced to less than three hundred,it- became neees
, • city to surrender to save a useless and wanton sa
- ----erifice of the bravo 'surviVors. In this battle, the
troops were repeatedly led to the charge by Scott in
- • person, whose tall stature and rich uniform, resider
' ed him a conspicuous target for the enemy's marks
. men;' hut like the immortal-Washington, he was
miraculously preserved by a gracious Providence,
we trust for higher destinies and more distinguish
. ed usefulness. Ile`was singled out, like. Washing
ton at Braddoek's field, by several Indian mark.s
men, who afterwards expressed their surprise that
he should escape their generally unerring aim un
hurt. But like the Father of his country, "he
. was not made to be killed by a bullet!"
In the following year, baying- been exchanged,
COI. Scott joined the northern army under Gen.
' Dearborn, as Adjutant General; and on the 26th
of May, he led the advance of the army in the suc
cessful descent upon the enemy's territory and bat
tle and capture of Fort George. With his com
mand of only five hundred men, lie attacked and
drove fifteen hundred British soldfers from a com
manding position on a hill, pursued and fought
them until the main body advanced to his support;
and whit his own hand, tore down the British Lion
from the ramparts and planted the American Eagle
in its stead. After partaking in the toils and pri
vations of the fall campaign against Lower Canada,
under- Gen. Wilkinson. he was -in the following
spring, (1814) made a Brigadier General as a re
ward foible distinguished zeal,' activity and courage.
With this new rank, lie joined the army of Gen.
. Brown, as commander of the first Brigade, which
in the campaign then opening, was destined to
' cover itself with laurels that shall be as undying as
the fame of their accomplished commander.
A. new scene in the war is now about to open.
. The long train of disasters and disgrace brought
, 'upon the American arms, under such men as Hull,
Smythe, Wilkinson and others, is 'about to close.
to be followed by a series of triumphs,unparalleled
in the annals cif modern. warfare. His gallant
friend Harrison had,the preceding fall, dispelled - the
gloom and pointed the way to victory, by the Mem,
.orable battle of the Thamea ;, and faithful to the
impulse, the victories of CHIPPEWA, BIAIDORIA'A
TEn or-Leone's LANE, Erie,, North Point, Plaits
' bap and New 'Orleans followed with rapidity,
rho army which under the gallant leading of
such men as Brown, SCOTT, Ripley, Porter, Gaines,
.Miller and others, whose names are synonimous
' with all that is groat in arms, gained such distin
guished laurels fur itself,owed much of its glAry and
SUCCCI3I3 to the indefatigable
,care and' exertions of
General Scott to bring it to a state of effiCiency and
discipline,' hitherto unsurpassed. The fruits are
Matter of history. The well fought fields of Chip
• • powa, fought and won,by Scott with his single bri
gade and few Militia end Volunteers against the
whole British army, vastly superior in numbers,
attest at once the powers of the troops and the skill
of the General.
This victory and that tishich soon followed, at
Bridgewater, qt here the roar of the bottle and the
. -cateractmingled in dread and deafening accord,have
established the fame of General Scott and placed
him in the very front rank of military commanders.
-The severe wounds.reCeived by him in this last
battles attest ‘ the• daring valor with which he led
, hts,brave comrades to victory; but, unfortunately
--their severity' depsisied his country 'of his services
in the field, during the remainder of the war.
Hitieartier since need' not be recapitulated. It.

our minds that le receive frOMher b cordial'
'and hearty support. "Scoff and Protection,"will
form, e. rallying cry,at which thousands and tens of
- thousands will array themselves under his limier.
'General Scott, too, is in fever of 41Vitig lethe
States their share in the immense'public domain of.
the United States; and will maintain inviolate that.
just and salutary measure, the "Land Distribution
law." Aix{ what State, let us ask again, has a

capacity of tier people to bear. aScolt.and Diatri

WhO are unwilling to have their taxes still further ,
increased and the State robbed of her just and right
'ful property.
- In a word, there is not'a great and leading prin
ciple for which the people contended in .1840, un
der his friend and compatriot, Harrison, that is not
sincerely embraced and ardently cherished by Gem -
Scott. Like Harrison, too, ho is of unblemished
character and unbending-integrity-.warmhearted,
hopitable and kind, his "latch-string" never pulled
in against- the way-faring 'man tq t ., soldier, he is
known only to he beloved and respected. The his manners and his kind and getitla.-
manly deportment towards all, conciliate the regard
and attachment of all who apfroach him,: In the
' prime andvigor of his age, his . frame-unbent and
"unbroken by the toils of war Through which he has
gone, and in the full maturity and vigor of an ac
tive and powerful intellect,-he will bripg to the
Chair of State a combination of qualities blending
in most happy unison, and strikingly resembling
those of the departed Hero of the Thames.
Such is General Scott,. and as such we present
!dui to your consideration, as a candidate every
_way_worthy_ofyou r-norninat ion and supportcan--
van his merits; examine his claims for yourselves,
until the time shall come to choose your Delegates
to the National Vonvention. We invite such
scrutiny,confident that it will result only in develop-
Mg new claims upon the admiration, love and
gratitude of his countrymen. • If then, he should
be selected by that great -. National`their
and your candidate for the Presidency, we will hail.
such choice with, pride and jai as the herald of vic
tory and sure. harbinger of success; should the
choice light on another, we will submit and Gen.
Scott himself will - rejoice that "America hes a
wenthier son than he." •
