that he must prove his good faith by

MARIETTA, JANUARY 4, 1862.
Gen. Scott, and his Wife in Paris.
Pants, Nov. 4—Ex-Lieutenant•Gen
eral Scott arrived here from Have,,which
port he reached an. the Argo on Sunday
morning.. Yesterday afternoon at .six
o'clock he was met at the railroad , sta- .
tion by Mr. Bigelow, the United States
Consul, and by the Secretary and Assis.,
taut Secretary of the Legation; Messrs.'
Pennington and Dayton. I should...not
suppose it would have . required any very
great relaxation from his usual 'dignity
for the Minister to have been present in ,
person to greet the warworn old veteran
to "whom our country owes so ranch, and
whom our countrymen and their repre-
sentatives abroad should delight, to
honor. But Mr. Dayton was net pie-.
seat. The Grleu. has taken rooms at the—
Westminister Hotel, in the Rue de la
Paix, Where, upon his arrival, he was
met by Mrs. Scott, who has not seen
him, before in five or six, years: Gen
eyal Scott, and his * wife ; finding, :that'.
their tempers and modes of thought.
were not, of an amicable., character,
"agreed to disagree," and concluded
that as they could not love each other
together, they would love each other
apart. 'Most of the time Mrs Scott 'has
been residing in Europe, and' has always
manifested intense interest in her hus
band's welfare. At the U nion breakfast
given last, summer at the Hotel dn.Lou
vre, and at which some of our newly-U(lg
ed Ministers made such "Mugginnes"
themselves, Mrs. Scott was present, and
whenever an alluSiOd was made to the
General she seemed to be deeply affect
ed, and once shed tears. Latterly she
has manifested a greater interest, than
ever in her husband's career, and for two•
or three weeks, she was so nervous and,
excited that it was found necessary to:
keep from her all :the papers containing'
bad news. Now, upon the General's
arrival in Paris, she wishes to greet him,
forgetting all that is pat. And it. is
not improbable under all the circum
stances that the'venerable pair.may con
clude to finish the remainder of life's
down-hill journey together.
Quite a demonstration was made by
the American ship captains upon the
General's arrival in Harve. Two tri
umphal arches were erected, under which
the. General passed, and as much en
thnsiam was exhibited and as much noise
made as was consistent with the 'quiet
idea of the French police.
To-day the General is resting quietly,
at his hotel, and to morrow or next day
will receive his American friends. Af
ter remaining here a few weeks for med
ical advice and treatment, he will pro
ceed to the South of France, probably'
to Pau or Cannes, where he will spend
the winter. lie enjoyed the trip, across
very much, never ,missed a meal, and
says he feels better now than he has for
