Unparalleled Brutality.

The Enquirer states the following facts upon reliable information:

‘"An officer in the Virginia Army, who resigned his commission in the United States Army some time since, and whose family is still in Washington, asked permission the other day to visit that city to attend the barial of a deceased child. General Scott promptly and indignantly refused, declaring that if thousands of children were to be buried, no officer of the Virginia Army could visit Washington without arrest."’
