A Graphic picture.

Rev. J. E. Carnes, of Texas Christian Advocate, says: ‘"General Scott is compounded of two vanities — the vanity of the pacificator, and the vanity of the warrior. But for the struggle between these two rival principles, he would long since have been petrified into a statue of self-admiration. The military leg is always striving to get ahead of the peace leg, and this struggle for precedence is the only thing that keeps the old gentleman in motion. " ’
