It was evident that this movement was preconcerted ; but the intention to form a new Government has been frustrated. There doubtjess will be alarms daily, con sequent upotl the threats of the disaffec ted. Citizeti Guinard told me that morn ing at 9 o'clock that trouble was expect ed he was'bhief under Courtais ol the national guard. But I think the mass of the nation are in favor of sustaining or der, and" supporting the present Executive and National Assembly.

A Gchuiiie Locofoco. An exchange pa per tells a story of a gentleman in Berks county, 'a mjetnber,of the Democratic par ty, whose attachment to regular nomina tions was happily illustrated. ' The Con vention: haVe nominated Polk," said a wag to him ivho had obtained possession of the real new s. Polk Ljust the man we want !" if No. no, I was mistaken," said the w-ag; " Woodbury, Wood bur)' is ey Were many, and filling I lie air with Gen. Scott and the Secretary of War. 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 city ; that is a proof that your complaints are groundless." 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 ? Is not the success of the first Conqueror of Mexico still a theme of Vonder lo the whole, world 1 And does not that wonder 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 al 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 murs t 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.
