- General Scott will voluntariaily retire
from his rank and duties within the next
ten days, solely on account of his physi
cal inhrniaties. The recent act of Con
gress provided there sho-:IJ he no reduc
tion in his pay. substance or allowances
in the ercut of his wkLdiavrrJ. It is well
known Gen. Scott has had an unsettled
account witn the War Department since
the Mexican war. Secretary Cameron
has recently piven examination of his
claims, now thirteen years old.'
Jeff Davis's malignity brought him in
debt on account of his expenditures and
receipts in Mexico, rI so far as the
Secretary's report could do it, discredited
him as a financial aent of the govern
ment. Mr. Cameron has reported that
Gen. Scott was not only entitled to the
money he claimed of government, but that
he saved to it millions cf sdollars, which
by the' laws of war he could have pocket

ting the distribution of prizes and conlri
bution money. This opportunity of per
sonal advantage Gen. Scott generously
' diverted to the founding of a home for
invalid soldiers. One of the monuments

Home, near Washington.

A Tlionsand Union Jlen Hang.
The Mount Sterling (Ky.) Whig, of
last week, gives an account of speeches
made in that place on Monday of last
week, County Court day. The Whig
"Gen. Dick. Williams, late of Texas,
proposed to give his fellow countrymen a
true and fair narrative of the effects of
secession as witnessed by him in a travel
of some 1.700 miles, overland ; he told of
some cf the most harrowing ecenes of
outrages and dearaon-like atrocities com
mitted by the fiend secessionist!), as wit
nessed by himself and family how men
were hung in Texas neighbors of his,
and for no other crime than that they
were loyal to the covernment of their
fathers ; he averred, as a fact, that he be
lieved, from his own knowledge, that the
number thus hung could not have been
less than a thousand in the States of
Texas, Arkansas and Tennessee !
The following, from the Louisville
Journal would be heartily endorsed by
many of our bo; j in the field :
'If. after administering the oath of
allegiance to a secessionist, you hang him
on the spot, he won't break it."
The following table shows the debt of
the United States at the time of the ad

probable amount in the coming year, to

Ji (a literary iuh) iirpch me to indite
a line for your always .readable and
truly valuaMe journal. Though our coun
ties are contiguous, and the localities at
which our county papers are published
have no great "intervening distance,
s-till a few things bearable to the reader
may have transpired that may not have
found their way into the local papers of
our respective localities.
Our city has been the scene of some
excitement during the last few days by
the peremptory closing of that rerpect
ed and important institution to the place,
the "Platte Valley Bank." This occur
ed, I understand, on this wise : Hawk
& Nuckolls, wholesale merchants of Ne
braska City, who have a branch store at
Mountain City Colorado Territory, have
recently had a falling out in common
mon parlance a "row." It seems, though
for the truth of this I cannot vouch, that
he keen-eyed Hawke got the advantage
of the shrewxl and veritable S. F.,and fix
ed his commercial and merchantable tal
ons into the business flesh of the taid
Nuckolls. At all events, Nuckolls has
had his turn about here, for no sooner
did he. return from Colorado, than he
promptly went to the store of II. & N.,
and "closed cut the shonty." Accord
ing to all accounts, and street rumors
the sccurging of the temple with the whip
of scorpions, bore no comparison to the
modern cleaning by him whose name
on the upper Missouri, has been the syn

Twelve. I believe, were the labors of
the gentlemanly athlete, related in clas
sic story and song: but the vanquishing of
the Nenean Lion and the other eleven
labors or the enterprising Hercules, hold
no show with this and another feat I am
about to relate of rsuckolis which cer
tainly make him one-sixth a Hercules.
Having taken possession of the store; he
did not rest him of his labors; on the
contrary, quite the reverse. He then
proceeded to the Platte Valley Bank, of
which he is President, an institution that
has been maintained and sustained thro'
the terrible financial crisis of the last
four years, mainly through his shrewd and
sagacious financiering, and proceeded to
take, possess, hold and occupy, and in do
ing so, they do say that he caused the
cashier, J. H. Maxon, Esq., to "Ske
dadle" and dodge his corners most beau
tifully. Maxon, however, succeeded in
retaining a portion of the leys, (Nuck
oils obtaining or having the remainder.)
The result is tha. the doors of the only
bank in Nebraska that has maintained its
faith and integrity, are closed. I believe
however that Mr. Nuckolls has made ar
rangements with McCann & Metcalf to
redeem all bills on the Flatte Valley
The dissolution of this old and respon
sible firm of Hawke & Nuckolls, it is to
be feared, may prove quite a check upon
the business and prosperity of Nebraska
City. It is to be hoped that others equal
ly energetic and enterprising will take
their place. And I may .say that this is
already being done. WTm. Fulton, Esq.,

the curtain. Whether the well known
secession sentiments of this Nebraska

ally increase the good will of the jYcus

or render it a more faithful exponent of
public sentiment cf the Territory, remains
to be seen. I learn Morton intends going

We pa.ssed Athens, Mo., yesterday,
where Green and Moore had their en

with drums and banners; but it made my
heart sad to think it necessary. It re

nessed in a Spanish colony, and which
made me curse the aristocratic authors
from the bottom of my heart.
Our men are rather crowded for cook

to leave on reaching St. Louis ; otherwise
we get along very well. We have all
our horses, men and baggage on board,

is all the talk in military circles just now ;
and a feeling of indignation is felt for

idently more to destroy confidence in them
and weaken our efforts to crush out the
traitors. Let every true lover of his
