Position of Gen. Scott.

Washington, April 20.
--On Friday, a Virginian here, in company with Robert Onid, the District Attorney, called on Gen. Scott.--The Virginian said:

‘"General, I have here in my hand the evidence of Virginia's secession. Do you intend to support your State."’

Gen.Scott, looking up, very petulantly replied:

‘"No sir; I intend to support the Stars and Stripes of my country."’ D.
