The most extraordinary portion of Se
cretary Marcy's reply to General Scotl. is
that in which, alluding to the General's
complaint that the proper supply of-neii
and munitions were not afforded him, he
tells him, in substance -"You took the

This kind of reasoning would make no
allowance for superior ge.ier Jship, nor
for I he courage and patience of the troops.
It would tear the. laurel from the skilful
leader and his brave followers, who, with
inadequate means, and entirely by the
force of genius and courage, had triumph:
ed over. .obscacle otherwise deemed insur
mountable. It would reduce to mere common-place
affairs the most extraordinary
campaigns that the world ever saw. Suc
cess is an infallible proof, it seems, that
sufficient resources were afforded. Were
the few hundred men with which Cortez
overthrew a mighty empire such a force
as a wise Administration would have
deemed sufficient for such an enterprize ?

proceed alone from the Jact that his re
sources were entirely inadequate to such
a task I Was the capture of the city of
Montezuma, and the destruction of his
empire, a proof that the Conqueror was
properly supplied from home.f
To come: to i he case of General Scott,
The world is yet wrapt in admiration at
liSTlariiig and successlul campaign a
gainst Mexico. And why? Had he heen
adequately supplied had such resources
as a prudent Administration would have
placed at his disposal been furnished
had he been placed on th same fooling
with his enemv would there have been
any thing very extraordinary in his sue
Cess? Does he perform a very wonderful
feat, who. with ample means, contrives to
accomplish a given object ? Was it this
which won for the campaign of 1796 in
Italy the distinction, among military men,
ot having been the mbt remarkable on
record ? Why, an ordinary General, with
ample" means, might Jiave done the same
thing. It is where the means are dispro-
portioned to the end. that success denotes
the great Commander, and calls down the
admiration of the world. This it wasthat
made all Europe regard Bonaparte with
wonder, when he first burst upon their
view, and this it is which now enlists the
admiration of Christendom in favor ojf
Gen. Scott. The Secretary, by leaving
him to his own resources by supplying
him in a manner totally inadequate to the.
design in view by thwarting him when,
ever it was in his power brought out the
brilliant traits which dazzle the world, and
made him the "Great Caplaip" of the age.
And now, that he has triumphed in spile
of every obstacle now that he has, by
the mere force of his own talents, worked
his way to victory through obstacles ap
parently insurmountable now that he has
conquered a peace from nine millions of
men. with a force not ten thousand strong
his very energy and genius are brought
in judgment against him, aiid the world
is told that his success is a convincing
proof that he was amply supplied !
Let us examine two of the piost remark
able campaigns on record, and see how'
just this reasoning of the Secretary will
prove to be, when tried by that standard.
In the campaign of 17UU-7, Bonaparte
destroyed five Austrian armies, one. after
another, each of which was more than
double his own force, and at least one of
which was in the proportion of three to
one. During alj that time, the Directory
not only sent him no reinforcements, ex
cept four regiments, but even issued a de
cree forbidding him to list from among the
Italians, soldiers to supply the gaps left in
his ranks by eighteen pitched battles, and
more than seventy engagements. Like
the present Administration, that body was
fearlul of being; eclipsed by a successl'uj
General. He triumphed, howjever, in spite
of neglect at borne, and fierce resistance
abroad. What would the world say at
this time, if the Directory had had the nn-
imnudence to have, said that
any purpose of utility.? The pecuniary
supplies, in the meantime, were doled out
with a hand so sparing! that Wellington
was compelled to buy goods, and ship
heiji, in order to supplyl specie, which a-
lonjjHhe inhabitants would receive. The
management was so wretched, that even !
Secretary Marcy would have-been asham
ed ofit. But ihe genius of Wellington
triumphed oyer it ail, and he acquired a
far higher reputation than he could have
done had he been amply supplied. He
succeeded in spite ol all obstacles. What
would the world have said, had the Eng
lish minis! rv, in reply ;to his numerous
complaints, pointed to Salmanca and Vic
toria and said, these confute your mur
We protest against that kind of reason
ing which takes from a great General all
his merits, and confeis them upon the min
istry at home ; w hich makes his success
an argument that he w furnished as he
should be; which gives no ciedit to his
superior genius, and reduces him to the
level oi' ordinary men. j Tite injustice of
such reasoning is as apparent in ihe case
of General Scott as in that of any other
peron whatever. To say that h General,
who is expected to encounter fifty thou
sand regular troops, in a country w hich
has not ifsIike strong! positions in the
whole world lo overrun nine millions of
people to storm positions deemed im
pregnable to keep up a line of commu
nication two hundred aiid fifty miles long
and swarming with guerillas to hold ci
ties of fifty, sixty, and two hundred thou
sand hostile inhabitants is amply sup
plied when he has not ten thousand men
whom he can bring in the field, is to offer
a deliberate insult to trie understanding.
The success of the operation, with such
inadequate means, is little less than a mir
acle, and while it places General Scott
foremost among the Generals of the age.
it is a subject of eternal reproach to this
administration, that he should ever have
been placed in a situation so perilous, and
requiring such high military talent to tri
umph over its difficulties. Rich. Whig.
