Getting old.

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 and Wool are both very old. " Alas, the ingratitude of Republics! Is this all the thanks Gen. Scott receives for saving his country? Getting old! And so he must be shoved aside for that brisk and chivalrous young man, Col. Summer, who is only sixty.
