tails of a conversation between himself
and Gen. Pillow, in reference to Mr. Peo

lish the Leonidas letter, with such com
ments as he thought it deserved. Gen.
Pillow said to him :
' You must recollect, as I said before
that I never forgot my friends nor forgive
my enemies. At that time the late Capt.
Smith, 3d Infantry, came in, and the con
versation stopped. After Captain bmilh
had left the room, I askedGen Pillow if he
would allow me to take that letter which
he had addressed, but not sent, to me, that
could shape a contradiction, as he author
ized, from. He reminded me again, when

The subjoined quotation from th same
witness, Capt. H., only agrees with the
opinion entertained by every sensible and
candid mind in this country, respecting
the energy of the brave old General who
has done so much with so meagre means
in Mexico, and who has been so ungrate
fully rewarded for his services.
Q. Had the witness many official or
other interviews with Gen. Scott between
the 7lh and 12th of September, and what
was the impression received by witness
on those occasions, regarding said Scott's
energy compared with earlier occasions in
the campaign ? f
A. 1 have had frequent interviews
with Gen. Scott during the stated time,
and as the occasion required any great

happen him, he then would take com

the battle of Molino del Rey was an un
fortunate affair ; he informed us that he
had lost 890 men,, which loss we, (mean

COURT OF INQUIRY. 1
Our contemporaries published this mor
ning the proceedings of the Court of In
quiry at the city of Mexico, embracing
the proceedings of the 18th 19th and 20th
days. The details are two long for our
columns. We give a sonopsis, embracing
all the points of interest. Mobile Adver
The first witness called was Lt. Clarke.
I whose testimony was expected to impeach
the previous deposition of Major Burns,
who had sworn that he had never before
been a witness before a civil court. Lt.
C. was not allowed by the: court to testi
fy, because it could not find on the records
of the court that Major Burns liad so sta
ted. To this decision Gen. Scott entered
his protest. f S
Capt. Taylor's testimony was verv clear
ly, against the claim of Gen. Pillow, of
having planned the battle of Contrcras.
He says : "I asked him the night, previ
ous to the battle how things looked ? He
replied, badly. He said the position was
very strong, too strong to be attacked, and
used. I was also civen to understand at
the same time, by Gen. Pillow, that the
conception,-as well as the execution, of
the assault upon Chapultapec, originated
with himself. With the exception of some
personal compliments on ourselves and
the Voltigeur Regiment, that was, I be
lieve, the substance of the conversation."
Mr. Trist thus runs a tristful thrust at
General P.'s claims to the honors of the
victory of-the 20th of August. They had
been in Gen. Scott's room on the night of
the 19th, engaged in consultation respec
ting the contemplated battle of the mor
row. Mr. T. says :
44 The company dropped off until at a
very late hour of the night, when prepa
ration were made by General Scott to go
to bed, and he had a bed made in his room
also for General Pillow. Upon my leav
ing the room to go to my.own, Gen. Pillow
followed me and went with me to my room.
He then, in a very solemn tone, said to
me, 44 This is going to be a failure. I an
swered thatthings had certainly not looked
very bright at nightfall, but my own spir
its had been very much; raised by Capt.
Lee s arrival, and the information brought

my remark, but in a tone and manner im
plying that I had interrupted him, went
on to say, that I call on you now to re
member and bear me witness hereafter.

made to us on respectable authority, that
