Very scandalous reports are rife concerning Col. Scott, nephew and secretary of the old General. It is boldly asserted that he is the traitor who has done so much mischief by revealing cabinet secrets and the plans of the Commander-in-Chief to the enemy. The failure of the scheme against the rebel camp at Munson's Hill, which was known only to Gen. Scott, Gen. McClellan, and Col. Scott, is attributed to the latter. It is intimated that the suspicions against Col. Scott were so strong, that his friends advised him to quit the country, and that this had something to do with the sudden resignation of Gen. Scott and his departure with his nephew and others for Europe. It is probable that these rumors and suspicions have been exaggerated.--Buffalo Courier, Dec. 6.
