The hardships of the service in a semi-tropical climate caused him to suffer from repeated attacks of fever, and these, working upon a constitution not thoroughly established at that time, so debilitated him that, in the spring of 1836, he was pronounced, upon surgi

nner, I was greatly surprised and delighted at seeing a carriage drive up with Captain and Mrs. Scott. He said he was in Washington before a Court of Inquiry; that Mrs. Scott. He said he was in Washington before a Court of Inquiry; that he had not the slightest fear of the result, having conscientiously performed his duty. He explained the cause of complaint, which was his not having reported to thSeptember, ———telling us how indignant Charles King was at the treatment of General Scott by McClellan, and that the General had said he would have arrested him for his political friends in power, or able to work for him.
