A Doubtful Story.
A Washington correspondent states that
storm seems to be gathering in tel around the
War Department, and gives the tullowing as
the cause of it :
A storm seems to be gathering in and around
the Department of War. (lea. Winfield Soma
teas SUMIIIIMed to WOSllillgtOO to appear before
the Committee no Military Allairs in the llnuse
of Representatives, to give his views on the bill
pending before that committee Ibr an increase
of the army. Upon his arrival here, he first
reported himself to the head of the War De
partment, a n d hall et fr ,, awl full conversation
with Secretary Davis. lo this interview Ile..
Scott expressed ids views upon the Military hill
and suggested various amenthnemas. After
wards, when Cm eh m 1 Scott appeared hedge the
Committee, he pm m "'mica similar amendments
there, stating that the Secretary o f War hail
fully agreed with him on all limes, several a
mendments. This being the case, the Commit
tee adopted the amendments without hesitation;
but judge of their surprise, upon learning frman
Secretary Davis that he not only disapproved
of the amendments, but had expressed his dis
approbation clearly and distinctly to General
Scott in their interview. The Secretary order
ed General Scutt to appear before hint today
for an explanation. 'l'lme result of this inter
view is not vet known, hid, it must have been
interest ing. • When doctors full out, who shall
decide ?
Ucts. Scott tins received it full share of perse
cution from the War Department, and we hope
fur the honor of the country, the above story
will not turn out to be eorrect. Who that
knows Winfield Scott could for a moment be
made to believe that ho would misrepresent the
Secretnry of War ?
