Colonel Wm. C Scotts.

We have read the defence of this gentleman, addressed to a Court of Enquiry, which was summoned with regard to his conduct in the Rich Mountain affair. He appears to us to have acted throughout with the strictest regard to military rule, and in obedience to all orders which it was possible to executes. The censure to which he was subjected in the public mind we believe to have arisen from ignorance of the circumstances, and was highly unjust. Col. Scott sustains all his statements by indisputable evidence. In our judgment his defence is complete.
