Exerritiri• rommittr,
A THRILLING INCIDENT: lathe courseof the
Hon. R. W. Thompson's remarks at the Balti
more Ratification Meeting, he asked:—
What had Old Zack done 1 Here a
voice in the crowd replied—" I'll tell you
what he has done. About two weeks
ago I stopped at Gen. Taylor's house,and
he received me in the most cordial man
ner, gave me a comfortable meal and a
good feather bed to sleep on, and in the
morning ten dollars to pursue my jour
ney with."
Mr. T. then inquired of the persons
speaking, who he was; to which he re
plied that he was a wounded soldier on
his retnrn from the army in Mexico.
This incident created great enthusiasm
among the crowd of listners, and was
the prelude to the mention of various an
ecdotes by Mr. T., illustrative of the
goodness of heart and kind feelings of
Gen. Taylor."

of his sound judgment, energy of char
acter, lofty and pure sense of justice,
land incorruptible honesty.—He has as
much reputation for what he has writ
ten, as for what lie has done, because
even where the composition is not his
own, the sentiments, motives and feel-
I ings are; and every thing he does, is
marked by the purity and loftiness of
his own character,
. I have never heard of any one, how
ever corrupt or base himself, that, after
five minutes conversation with General
Taylor, has dared to propose, or even
hint at, any thing dishonest or mean.
And no intercourse in the ordinary
events of common life, can give the true'
idea of the loftiness of his character.—l
remember you asking me at the time he
was put in command at Corpus Christi,
whether he was equal to the circumstan
ces. I told you of his sound judg
ment and inexhaustible energy as I had
learned them in Florida, but I did not
then estimate properly the other and
higher points of his character. In the
campaign on the Rio Grande, I saw him
tried under all circumstances, and he
always came out pure gold.
His profession that he will be the
candidate of no party will, if he be elect
ed be carried out in his practice—not
I that his opinions 6n matters of policy
may not be those of one or other party—
on most of these.he is a 11 7 h.ig, and he is
not the man to act adverse to his own
opinions ; but no party management or
I power can ever lead him to do a mean
or what he thinks a wrong thing.
As soon as Gen. Taylor was furnish.
ed by events with the opportunity to
display his character, you see that it
was estimated properly at once, and 1
come back to the truth of the position 1
started with, that I believe the people
will always measure great men.
1 do not say they will always reward
them properly, for they cannot always
give a direct expression to their feelings
and the least worthy may have the vote
without having the wish.
There has a great error been commit
ted in relation to Gen. Scott: no milita
ry operations in history have displayed
more military qualities or been more suc•
cessful in their results. Nor have they
been in any case the result of chance;
every thing has been done in conformity
with a plan, and the event in all cases
has been almost predicted. That a suc
cessful General should be degraded in
the very scenes of success, for complaints
made not of him, but by him, is exceed
ing strange, and most unfortunate. Ev
ery one in the army feels it as a dis
grace. * * * * • *
