SECRET HISTORY'OF THE >1 EX HAN WAR. Letter from Gen. Gideon J. Pillow. To the PtDpfe o f Tetmt*?re. In placing myself before the country a* a candidate for United States Senator I fuel that it is not improper (V>r me briefly to refer to the motive* which have prompted my course, anil to statp the principles by which I .shall be gov erned if honored with your confidence. It is known to vou that 1 hare not heretofore sought political honors. That I have actively participated in all the great political struggles through which the country has passed for many yt irs i * not unknown to the Democracy of inv immodiate neighborhood; but my participation has been thiit ot a soldier in the ranks?neither asking aor receiving any share in the fruits of victory. incidental to the humble pnrt I have per formed was an active participation in the nom ination of Mr Polk, and the strugglo which re .-ultod in placing him in the Presidential chair. J hat event was followed by the war with Mex ico. The part I bore in that war i* known to th? country. All that I have to say of those services is. that I tried to perform my duty in the difficult and trying positions in which I'was piaced. To the bravo sons of Tennessee of my command I appeal as witnesses of my kindness an-i attention to their wants, amidst the dis eases of a pestilential climate and the hard J* 1P? of * c?mp Ijfo. To the reports of U enerai 't. inv immediate and only superior in the *nn7 w'*h which I fought, I refer for the man ner in which I bore ujrgulf in command, and ? ustained the honor of Tennessee upon tho uiany battlefields of Mexico. General Seott u*d?r no -u?P'c'on of ]>artiality for me; *nif. may therefore, without indelicacy, refer *???? reports for my bearing upon those fields whi<'h have reflected so much hontur upon our common country. By them I am willing to bo Judged. Y hiie I was thus engaged in a foreign war. endeavoring to maintain the right and defend ing the honor of the country, a malignant party prnss at home was perpetually pouring its vol umes of abuse and calumny upon me. All that ridicule, falsehood, and calumny could do to destroy my reputation wa? done " lly only an ?wer to these assaults wao tho blows I gave th< eccijy in front. I felt that in vindicating inv refutation as a soldier with my rworiJ. I bos: ?njwered the 44 tire of the enemy In th" rear." The cio*e of the brilliant campaign which re quited in the capture of the enemy's capital found me ,4 cut down.'1 In a tew days afterward*. and while prostrate upon a bed from which I did not riie for many months, I was arrested. A sword which I had not dishonored was wrested from my side?my personal staff was dismembered, and my gal lant division, which had cut its way into the city at a loss of nearly two-thirds of its mem bers. was taken from my command, an 1 or dered to remote and interior positions in Mex ico. I was confined s prisoner in the city of Mexico for ninety days, and until released' bv ?rder of the President of the United States. A long investigation of the charges preferred ?gainst we resulted in the triumphant vindica tion bi my reputation, and in overwhelming my enemies and persecutor* with shame and falsehood. But there is a mystery, a secret history in tho m otives of those who thus thought to deslroy my character, and to atrip me of the humble honor of serv ices which eost me so much suffer ing, which has never yet been understood by the country. That mystery 1 now propose to remove. It is due to my own reputation, to tho mem ory of the great and patriotic statesman who was then chief magistrate of the nation, and to the (ruth of history, that th? veil which has now. for ten years, concealed the truth Irorn the public, should be4ifted. In appointing a mission to travel with tho ?rrny aud tre?t for peace, (if an opportunity should ofkr.j the grade of diplomatic duty to oc performed, and the emoluments thereto at tached, made it im(mssible lor the President to find a statesman who would accept the place. The mau selected for that position was Mr N. P. Trist. Bat, either distrusting his ability, or judgment, or prudence, or all thc?e, Presi den* k Oik w.w not t?* plucc tii? honor of the eountry and his administration in his hands alone. By his confidential letters, now in my pos sesion. ha so far associated myself with Mr. Trist as to place me iu semi-official relations w:tn him as commissioner. The duty was en j >ined upon Mr Trist of taking me into all his conferences, aud to eousult me in all his nego tiations. I be duty was imposed upon me as a patriot and the devoted friend of the President, to guard and protect the honor of the country and of his administration against any and everything which I thought would tarnish the one ur the other. It will hence be seen that, wh'io Mr. Trial wm the ostensible couiwivion er, I was. in fast, the confidential officer of the Government. up?n whom the President relied to guard aud protect the honor of the country in the important negotiations involving the peace of the country. \Vi.e I reached the hea'lquartersof theamiv, \i " ^ w:u incited to a conference with Mr. Trial. On my arrival at his quarters, I f ound General Scott there Mr. Trist informed me that he had opened negotiations with Santa Anna, and had pretty well agreed upon the preliminaries of negotiations for peace. By these terms. Santa Anua was to be paid, cash in band, as earnest money. flU.OW, and our aruiy was to march to the valley of Mexico and fight a battle before the city. If we wou an ar mistice was to be granted, and c .inmissioners appointed to treat for peace. When peace should b*3 concluded, Santa Anna was to receive one million of dollars more. Mr Trist further informed me that these term? had been agreed to, but it whs an open question wnether Santa Auna or General Scott (aider tho battle was fought) should Uku the initial:'. and send the ting of truce, prepara tory to the armistice?Santa Anna insisting that General Scott should seuJ the flug, but General Scott insiaung. if he won the battle. Santa Anna sboald do so. lie further said General .Scott had ftirnished him the money, and that he had pa id the Jlu U00 rei^ uired to bv paid i;i advance, and that General Scott bad the mentis iu the i disburaing department of the armv, o* Could raise the means, of paying the million to be J paid at the conclusion of the negotiations. He also Said he had invite 1 me to the conference in > pursuance of theorderof the President, aud de Sired my annroval of the terms I asked Mr Trist if there wa< any law au- | th*riiing such a use of the public money ? He ? replied there was not. I then asked hitu if the I President had authorized such a use of it. lie replied he had not, but he thought it was the beit Im omiIU do. Kegarliug this :?s an improper uee of tho pub lic money and as a bribe to ihe c ?uiuiander of tne enemy's forces, and as dishonotiug the Uov eruiucnt. aud disgraceful to ourariny. I at once I protested ag.tiust the whole matter. ??en. F; ?tt justified and defended the measure, j b t t U(.0U the SO?re of morals aud as to the usa^e ot g"ovcrnmeuts. He said we were not corrupt ing >4iita Anna; for tho fact that he was found j in the market asking a bribe, was proof that he was already corrupted ' in regard to the practice of governments, he said it was a of governments to (ffeet t leir purpo#ea. when necessary, by money, and that otff Go*eminent had oauctioued the prac* tice. He said tho presents made by it to the chiefs ot Indian tribes, and to the Barlmry powers, were nothing but bribes. He further said that, in the settleuitni of the northeastern boundary question. $5oimm0 had been u?e !? no one knows bow. but the officers of the Gov ernment, unless it was used to bribe tho M tine press He mentioned other instance* in which the Government had expended l.trge rums of in .ncT in this way. K?u4?!?g General Scott clear as to the rt^hl of 'ho me i<ure, and earnest in his co-operation with Mr. Trist, and not being familiar myself with ihe usages of other governments, nor the practice of our own, I doubted what I ought to do; and in deference'to his wishes and judg ment,suspended my opposition until a dav% reflation had confirmed ray opiniou of duty to my country On tho uight after the conference t.w.k place. Gen. Scott oalled a council of gen eral officers, to whom he made known what had ";en done in the way of negotiation, and to wh..m he expressed substantially the views and opinions above detailed. Being satisfied, after reflection, that my first impressions were right, I went next day to ?ten. Scott and Mr. Trist, and protested so earnestly against the whole matter that they both said I was right, and that they would abandon the negotiations. I then thought they were sincere in their purpose to abandon it, and all idea of peace to be thus obtained. In a few days afterwards the army com menced the march for the valley of Mexico. , ' ? reached the valley?had fought the bat tjeot Contreras and Churubusco, (a continuous tight that lasted nearly two days,) when at last ?very portion of the field was won by the in domitable valor of the American army; and whilst pursuing the euerny at the head of the army, and almost within the gates of the city, reeeiv ed (Jen. ?>cott s order to halt the a*my and fall back to his position, when I learned from hiiu that it was his purpose to grant an armistice. The enemy had sent no flag of truce, nor had he asked an armistice. I at once told Gen. Scott that the city was in his power?that I thought he ought to take it, provido for the wants of hi.-* array, and then grant an armistice if the enomy desired it. Gen. Scott replied that his purpose was set tle;], and gave orders for the disposition of the array for trie night thon approaching. Next day I went to Gen. Scott's headquar ters, taking Gen. Worth with mo, and wo both earnestly protested against tho armistice, but to no purpose. Still not satisfied, the same day I addressed a written remonstrance to Oon. Scott, which I uent by Gon l'icrce?still more earnestly pro tecting against this armistice, a? likely greatly to ondanger the safety of the army in futuro operations. But all ray efforts were of no avail. I was now satisfied that Gen. Scott was acting un lor the influence and wishes of Mr. Trist. and that ho was carrying info effect tho Puehla negotiations. That in doing so. if wo got peace, it would be at tho cost of the honor of the array and of the government of the countrv. That if we got no peace. Santa Anna would avail himself of the armistice to recruit his beaten and disorganized array, to coranlctc his defen sive w<>rks, and to remove his heavy artillery from the front we had turned to the front we were ?u-sailiug. And that in the event of Santa Anna a bad taith in this negotiation, we were giving up all tho advantages gained by tho bat tle of Coutreras and Churubusco. (which had cw*t us the blood of 1,050 men.) without any thing in return, and without any guaranty of the enemy's good faith. Entertaining these views of the oLjtrt and </ ject of the armistice, and the purposes of Mr. irist, and finding that I could uo nothing to prevent tho consummation of measures so dis reputable to the Government, I at once wrote to President Polk, giving him a full account of the negotiations, and the steps adopted towards its fulfilment. Upon the reception of this in formation. the President promptly recalled Mr. Trist, withdrew from him all authority to act as commissioner, and directed Gen. Soott to *tn<t him hark to the United State*. The recall, however, was not received until General Scott had resumed offensive operations, and the array had eutered the city of Mexico. Die armstiee lasted fifteen days, during which time Santa Anna had completed his de fences?had removed his heavy artillery fr"in El Pinon and Mexicalzingo, aud had reorgan ized and recruited his array, and had 26.000 lighting raen in the field, and then reannounced tuat the arnistice was at an end. And in the after operations of the array?made necessary by the arms'.ice, and by giving up all the ad vantages gained by the first two bloody battles? we lost in killed and wounded 1.672 men ; so that the army had to atone for the error of its Commander-in-Chief, acting under the influ ence of the Government coram is.- iouer, with the bl<?xl of many of its bravest raen. Up to this time. Gen. Soft had never been otherwise than just and kind to mo. At Vera Crux, he had selected mo to lead the storming column of volunteer forccs in the con templated assault upon that city. He after wards appointed me a commissioner over the heads of ray then superiore in rank, to fix upon the terras of its capitulation. He had selected rae to attack in front the strongly fortified field of Corro Gordo, while with the main force of the army he turned the enemy's left. finding his array so ranch crippled by the operations at Vera Crux and the battle of Cerro Gorlo that he could not advance upon tho city ot Mexico, he sent me to the United States, un der sick leave of absence, but in fact to procure from the President an order to reinforce his command by the new troops previously ordered to General Taylor's line of operations; which duty being performed, I returned and overtook the army, and assumed the comraund of my di vision at l'uebla. lie placed me in command of the advanco of the army in the movements that ted to the bat tles of Contreras and Churubusco. in the mifl't of this last, long-continued and bloody battle, he sent his life-guard (commanded by Lapt. Kearney) to rae tor duty, thus leaving himself at Coyoacan without even a lite-guard Immediately on the termination of the arm stice, he threw ine forward to Piedad?almost under the walls of the city?to drive in the en emy, and to protect his army from surprise and strutagotical movement (with orders never for one moment to be absent from ray post) while he Aas coneentrating hiS foroes and settiug his plans for future operations. He moved rae iroiu this place, in the darkness of the night, to d wh upon and seize the Casa Mata aud tho Me linos del Key, preparatory to storming Cha pilllepec ; aud. having chosen mo to storm that Mfoiig and alui'*t impregnable fortification, which commanded all the approaches to the ity.) and when it had become evident that it wa^ victory or death to the whole array, he di rected mc to assail the work as 1 pleased, but that I must carry it, no matter at what cost ? that the tale of the army depended upon ray success. tieing disabled in this duty. Gonera! Scott *aid, iii his ortioial reports, ' that this gallant lea ler was cut down, while up with the front rank, by an agouixing wound *' in his official correspondence ho said : 41 From what he per sonally saw, be (1) received an agonizing wound in the able and heroic discharge of duty" iu storming Chapultepec. Again he said: "On your back as you stili are with a painful wound, I yesterday very reluctantly troubled you with a note of that date, but was obliged to do ao, before finishing my report of the recent glo ri ?us operations, in which you had a full and U:ost distinguished paitioination.'' * * * Again he said, in haste : " Permit me to repeat ttra-e more, that 1 have, from my first meeting with you, been anxious, froui a high opiniou of your head and heart, your intelligence, honor, x<.-al, aud valor, to win your esteem and confi dence. on any term.: consistent with justice aud honor." 1 refer to these high official testimonials of Gen Scott, not iu a vain glorious spirit, but to ?how how strong an influence must have been brought to bear uj??n his mind, to hive indaoed him (before the ink with which his official re p iru were written was dry) to have treated with such harshness and injustice an oftcer. of whose conduct ho had iust spoken in his report i in terras of unqualified approbation, and while '? e tnfidence and esteem he was anxious to win upon any terras consistent with honor and jus tice." That influence was the misrepresenta tions of Mr. Trist?who, availing him.-elf ot Gen Soft's known jealousy of eomraand, and el' my opposition to the armistice?coupled with ^it tetters written from the army condemnatory ?f the armistice and laudatory of myself, in fl lined Gen. Scott's feeliugs, and so maddened h>s sense of justice ae to blind hiin iu all his after conduct. a Mr Trist s object wan revenue upon the man I S? h1d.cr !ed. his recftI1' and t0 disgrace and discredit tho only man who had a knowledge of his corrupt negotiations. IW knew r had writ en to President Polk, (for I had shown him the loiter,) but <Jen Scott did not. Ho knew that to accomplish his purpose. he must control Uen ?cott s moral power and influence iu the army. TkTCn' . ^ never suspected his real purpose. Ine armistice had greatly affected the cone s'1^0 au f feel,ngsof the army towards Uen. scott, while my opposition to it, being known throughout the aruiy, had tended to induce an o\ er-estimate of my services. This was seen by General Scott in the many .etters written from the army to the home press: nd his seusitiveuess on this point may be aeon in the issuance of his offensive general order, intended to disgrace Gen. Worth and myself, upon the bare suspicion that wa had written such etters. It was this order that led to the arrest of Oen Worth and Col. Duncan ; and, 1 though he arrested me under a different pre rn*1,n charse wa*a tha* I) also, had writ ten similar letters. I I uder these circumstances, Mr. Trist found it an easy matter to induce Gen. Scott to believe l was endeavoring to supplant him in the eonfi i!?^ICOf^!! affections of the army, and to strip uu of the honor to which he was entitled an its commander That he did so believe, is manifest trom his charges against mo. Jlence the blindness with which he rushed uto the extremes of injustice and wrong towards me, which proved so fatal to his own reputation >.>r justice towards his subordinates in com mand and which had well nigh ruined tho bumble individual who now addresses tou. It will bo seen from this narrative of events that all my trials and persecutions?all the falsehoods and calumnies hoapod upon me iu eonsequonce of uiy runiure with Gen. Scott? an the blaekening and defamatory charges by which he sought to strip me of the humble honor of my services, and to disgraco me as a man of"honor?all tho poison infused into the mind of the nation by the party pross?that all obloquy was heaped upon me bccause I earnestly protested aganist tho corrupt Puel.U negotiations, and tho armistice, (a part of it.) which cost tho army the lives of so many brave men, and because 1 made known to the Presi dent. as I was in honor bound to do, tho ex istence of these disgraceful proceedings. ifence it will be scon that instead of having caused the xunture between the President and ?en. bcott and Mr. Trist, from an officious and lntermeddmg disposition, as I was charge! to ha\e (jono, I was engaged in a sacred duty to my country in all that I did And though I was so greatly wrongly by tho press, and by public opinion, such were my confidential rela tions to the Ooverment and to this mission, that I could neither expose the motives of tho o who sought to destroy mo, nor the seumj ot duty which controlled my conduct. in my defence of the charges against mo. I was compelled to confine myself to the charges themselves, trusting to the future fur the vindi cation of my motives, and the fidelity with which I met the responsibilities of my iiosition as the confidential officer of the laoverment. .Tho best friends I had in the army did all they could to induce mo to acquiesce in Gen. Scott s refusal to prosecuro tho charges against uie. llut conscious of my innocence, and hav ing been actuated by a high sense of duty to my country, I demanded an investigation of the charge*, and an order from the court compel ing him to prosecute them or publicly to admit that thoy were false. I chose to bravo all the consequences rather than submit to be thus calumniated, or violate the confidence rej>osod iu me by my Govern ment. In al 1 this I claim to have done but my dutv ; but the time has now arrived when I think the relation I bore to th" Government and to this mission should be made known, that my col duct may be understood aud my motives ap preciated. r I now appear before tho people of Tennessee and ask their verdict uj>on these facts. I appeal' to them for josiico ; and I state thepeif .rmanee ot these confidential services to my country, when neithor the purposes of justice nor secrets ot state require them longer to be withheldfrom the public. I could not Mate them earlier, con sistently with my sense of duty. File tacts, substantially as above given, will be found the sworn testimony of himself and other general officers, in the archives at Wash ington, taken by order of the then President of the tinted States. The great man whoso sleepless anxiety fir the honor and welfare of tho country impos *d upon mo these trying dalles, has passed away ; but not so the impress of his mind, and the im perishable aohievoments of his administration. These are seen in the glory of our arms, in the countless millions of gold with which our Pa cific steamers are freighted, and in tho rapid inarch of civilization and freedom to the distant shores of the Pacific. Jfad he lived, this appeal Countrymen to remove from my name the rcproach implied by their apparent neglect, would never have been necessary. lie would long since have made known my services, and tho motives which actuated my conduct. In regard to tho course of conduct I shall adopt if honored with your confidence, I have only to say, that I think I have given proof 1 enough of lovo of country to satisfy you tnat I will never intentionally prove faithless to tho trust reposed in mo. th* great question which now threatens the luion ot the States, I declare my attach ment to the Lnion to be second only to the rights secured by the Constitution to the States. . I-pen this question I have no further conces sions to grant, no more compromises to make. I couwider the South as already driven to tho wall.
