Dr. Winfieldum Scott.

--Before General Scott lost his last feather at Stone Bridge, the degree of Ll. D. was conferred upon him by Harvard University, Mass. The following is the form employed:

‘ "Winfieldum Scott,

"Summum Imperatorem, Virum scientia rei militaris, virtute, auctoritate, feltcitate insignom, nec minus civilibus clarum laudibus, pacis et humanitatis, studiosissimum, quluniversam rempublicam tuetur, sustentat, unice amat, utriusque Juris, tum Naturse et Goutium, tum Civilis Doctorem, honoris causa, creavimus et renunciavimus, sumque omnibus juribus et honoribus ad hunc gradum pertinentibus donavimus."

’ We leave our readers to make the translation. A pretty pair of Ll. D.'st — Winfieldum Scott and Abraham Lincoln — men who abrogate all laws. They are such doctors as the Irish horse doctor, who presented his bill ‘"for ouring yer honor's horse till he died. "’
