' , Every body knows, thai, if Mf. Cllyor Mr. V'ebster, or Gen. Scott had been nom inated for the Presidency, by the 'Whig Convention, the. Washington Union would have professed to be shocked beyond- mea sure at the Convention's bad . treatment of Gen.Taylor: but now that Gen. Taylor is nominated the Uuion affects to; bo awfully ndignani at.the bad. treatment of Clay, Webster, and Scolt. Of Scott the official ditor speaks thus: ' . ; 'And Scott the brave and gallant Scott who fought from Vera Cruz to Mexico who entered in triumph i the city. of. the Montezumas, and through, whose direct agency the olive branch is now! entwined with the lata hostile banners of the United Slates and Mexico--he,too, has been push ed from his stool, to make room 'fur ,1 younger, hot a belter syldter.' ?! The editor of the Union, the official or gan of the Administration, says this, . and says it without a blush;!; ; "He :: says that the gallant Scott who fought his way to thjb city of the Montezumas,. and by whose street agency the blessings of peace are " secured to our country, "has been pued from his stool to make room for a younger, not better soldier."" Wei), this is- true the gallant Scott has been 'Jpushed frojvi his stool to make room for a y6ungeri'-not ' a better soldier;'1 he has. been pushed r 'from his proud position at the he act ofjho victo rious armies ol his country to make room for Gen." iVm 0,i J5uf r;!ay , the brave and scar-worn ofd veteran, alter winning his glorious way to "the centre of, the enemy's country through the fire and blood of Vera Cryz, of Cerro Gordo, ofContreras, of Ctiuriibusco and 61 Chapultepec, and rais ing the stars and stripes of'; the ' Republic upon the loftiest spires' of the capital,- found himself suddenly degraded from his - com" mand, called onto surrender up his author ity to a comparatively. inexperienced voiuo- leer, and ordered for trial, befora a sourt romnused of his . subordinates ; and upbtn charges prelered by tiis-subordiiiaies; but, thank God, this grossfcutrage; this pushing of a glorious old eteran ,Vfrom ,his stool to make" room for a younger not a. better soldier,1' 'was not 'perpetrated by a Whig Convention or by the Whig party, but by the infamous" Administration' which recog-' jiizes and uses the Washington Union as Its'; b rgan.'
