otton it will require for a breastwork five feet high, ten or twenty feet at the base and one mile and a half long, and then study history and ascertain how many bales of cotton were raised in the United States in 1814, and how many bales were in New Orleans in December, 1814? If they figure it out correctly they will speedily ascertain. In the meantime, with the exception of the eighty-two bales of cotton used, (which, by-the-bye, belonged, as did the balance of the two hundred and seventy-seven bales, to our quondam citizen, Vincent Nolte,) the entire breastwork and fortifications of the plains of Chalmette were composed of nothing but real Louisiana mud. Our authorities are now piling up some more miles of mud, and only wish Lincoln, Seward, Cameron and their minions will appear before them at any time before this and next spring. We hope there will be an end to the talk of cotton bales used in the campaign. It it time that history should be respected to refute the assertion.
Gen. Scott. In looking lately over a review of Vincent Nolte's "Fifty Years in America and Europe, " we found an interesting description of Paris after its occupation by the Allies. Having described the fierce looks of the French officers who wandered through the streets with their caps drawn over their eyes, and ready to demand a fight if any English officer happened to brush by them, Mr. Nolte thus amusingly refers to Gen. Scott, then on a visit to Paris, to improve, if that were possiMr. Nolte thus amusingly refers to Gen. Scott, then on a visit to Paris, to improve, if that were possible, his military knowledge and receive the congratulations of the world: "Of all the commanders then assembled in Paris, the most dissatisfied was the America. General Scott, since noted for his campaign in Mexico, who had been opposed to the English on the Canada frontier, had taken a fort or two, and was looked upon by his countrymen as a military star of the very first magnitude--second only to Jackson, and equal to any other warrior then exact. He had been sent to Europe to increase

a large scale, a great General, and entitled him, in his own, to make an exhibition of himself at Paris, when it was occupied by the allied armies, in the midst of such men as Wellington, Blucher, Schartsenburg, the Archdske Charles, and all the Generals that had been engaged in the wars against Napoleon, and whose names resounded through the earth like the sound of a trumpet — The mortification which he experienced on finding that, his name had never been heard in Europe is described by Vincent Nolte in his work, and is amusing enough. But in this country his pigmy exploits continued to be regarded as miracles of generalship, although he was but second in command, and caused him to be still looked upon as a great tactician. His Mexican campaign, undertaken after Gen. Taylor had already destroyed all the best troops of the Republic, and was ready, with only had the troops required by Scott, to march to the city of Mexico, further increased his fame. Yet what was it after all? One
