breathed new life into the system of educa

of the borough. In these exercises, as well
as in the ordinary examinations of this

portant it is to have men to instruct our chil

impart practical as well as theoretical know

whether such men should not be highly. re

GEN. SCOTT'S ADDRESS
Mr. President and Gentlemen of the Court:
Here, in the Capital of Mexico, conquer
ed by the American arms, under my com
mand, I find myself but a prisoner at large
—the chief criminal before this Court. Deep
ly wounded, my mifilaw pride is cast down
into the dust—not by the public enemy-41mt
by - the long arm of power from home. All
that could be done, in that quarter, to injure,
to degrade and humble, me here and else
where,bas been accomplished—But sustain
ed by Almighty care; feeling myself strong
in__Centtciialls.recutude„ strong in- mind-and
body—strong in all the Means* of self de
fence, I bid defiance to my accusers. I
shall not plead the letter withdrawing the
appeal against me, in bar of trial. Nay, I
challenge the writer of that letter Id come
forward mid do his worst. - But Ilii'doubt he
thinks and with reason that he has done his
worst. Here in view of the enemy lie has
caused me toshiMi ilk flown from the high
and honorable nom - nand of la most gallant
and triumphant army... He has caused me.
first to be persecuted and punished at lium.e i
and then to be brought forward to be tried..
again, while he, my - junior,tas been pre-ac
uiTfed The President has
we are exultingly told, done:him full end
ample justice—yes, sir, in - dmible measure;
justice to his .:pride, and justice to his ven
geance. 'Let him Mr. President, no forth,
rejoicing in the plentitude of Executive fa.•
vor.. without envying him Ids honors. I
shall, at .the end of This Court have/ 'lane
with him forever: Again Mr. President, I
repeat my attitude is that of defiance.
The New Orleans papers.contain eight or
ten columns of closel3 printed matter, of the
proceedings of• the trials of the officers. It
is of course too voluminous to publish, and
even if we had space, we do not think the
documents, of which , it is mainly composed,
are of sufficient interest to give them a place
in our columns. The progress of the inves
tigation ot 'the chargesk preferred by, and
against Gen. Scott, elicits .considerable dis
cussion in the newspapers. SO far, there
has nothing been developed that can fix a
stain upon the old hero's reputation.
Gen. Scott, for reasons set forth, formally
withdrew the charges preferred against Lt.
Col. Duncan "and Maj. Gen. Pillow. Gen.
P., however, desired that his case might
proceed ; and Gen. Scott submitted the - char.
ges and specifications.
Gen. PiiloW announced Lt. C 01... Duncan
and Maj. Breckenridge, as having been en
gnged to assist him in conducting his case.
On the : fifth day, 21st ultimo, the examina
tion of witnesses commenced and Mr. Free
ner, the "Mustang" of the New Orleans
Delta, was put on the stand. His evidence
related altogether to the publication of cuti
cles, furnished or assented to by Gen. Pillow.
Mustang'irtyhfence completely established
the fact ffilft Gen. Pillow knew all-about the
neonidas letter" in which his own exploits
were so extravagantly set forth.
The whole proceedings 0,1 the court will
probably end in smoke. There will nothing
