The Philadelphia North American
has an article highly laudatory of Col. Summer
, who has been made Brigadier-General
in place of that gallant soldier, and noble-hearted gentleman, Gen. Twiggs
. The American
reproachfully remarks, " Scott
are both very old. " Alas, the ingratitude of Republics!
Is this all the thanks Gen. Scott
receives for saving his country?
And so he must be shoved aside for that brisk and chivalrous young man, Col. Summer
, who is only sixty.
