Sept. 25, 1857. In iny recent address to tha people of Ten nessee. giving the secret history of the PueMa negotiations. with the relation* I bora to the Government. aid to the " Trist Mission." and tha part I performed iu defeating those negoti ations, I was careful to avoid everything of a personal or party character. i made a simple statement of facta, and re ferred to the War office at Washington, where the proof of those facts would ho found. I anticipated that these disclosures would start up afresh the whole pack of Uiod-honndt, who bar* pursued me with so rnuah fierconcss over siuoe I entered the army. h A Hitchcock, who signs bimsely ?? Acting Inspector General of ths Army in Mexico and late Brevet Brigadier Ueneral.'* is the first to ooen the cry upon the new soent; and forthwith the editorial pack?Prentice, Greeley, A Co ? chime in and cry on. The cry of these last is an old yell, quite fa miliar to the public ear. and without terror, even to the faint-hearted. But this man Hitch cock, who thinks to give himself character and consequence before the country by setting forth the position he occupied, and the length of time he had been in the army, is not so Well known; and therefore it may not be improper to give him some further notice. Wnen the war with -Mexico broke out. he was l'.cutenant-colonel in tho line, and in command of tho 3d intantry?as fine a regiment as the artny could boast of W hil?* this regiment wis in the field, marching against the enemy, tocut its way to honor and glory, its commander. Col. Ilitchcock. gave up the command, and erctvtnly ? v /.? / v f*i from the post of danger aul honor for tbsaoMina/ position of acting inspector general in General Scott's staff where all his associates were lieutenants, and where he was far re moved from d inger. With the soldier, the post of danger is the post of honor. To understnr 1 how far he compromised his honor ms a soldier by this step, we hive but to examine the catalogue of the gallant dead, where we find the names of Mcintosh. Scott. Hanson. Graham. Butler. Dickinson, and a host of other regimental commandars, to sco how tearfully their ranks were thinned in the bloody battles fought from Vera Cruz to the city of Mexico, and then to contemplate Imw comfort "v' to be in the staff of the Commanding General, without ever being under fire. It was by this spccics of strategy that this g&nant veteran of nearly forty years' service in the army has passed thro^h a -erics of so many years, without a sear hi* person, without seeing an enemy in the war with Mexico, ex cept from the safe stand-point or his chief, and without ever having faced an enemy of his ?*.>untry. unless he was in some of the skirmisher with the Indians in the Florida war. While upon the subject of tho Florida war. we invite him. in hia next epistle, to tell what Gen Scott, in his reports. Said of his gn/l'intry in that war. then k> furnish the country with what he said of Gen Sc -t: in his anonymo"s communica tions to certain newspapers. A knowledge of the achievements of this son of M-irs in that war. with the opinion of the - greal Soldier ' of bis gallantrv. and hisop niun of the '? great soldier* written for the informa tion of the public, would interest the people of Tennessee quite a? much a* his dishonorable re ticetion* upon the memory of the great man whose fame constitutes the pride and honor of this State To understand why he was hrereted. it isonlv necessary to say that that was honoi reflected from Gen. Scott, his chief, upon whose reports the i*overnmeut acted in conferring brevets. Such is a brief sketch of the brilliant achieve ments of this veteran warrior, who. with the brovat rank of brigadier general, resigned his commission and abandoned the artny. rather than obey the order* of hi* Government, and goon duty with his regiment to our frontiers, where, by j-usaibility. ho might have to tight tho Indians. In regard to his charactcr as a man of honor and truth, the country will remember him a^> a co-eonspi atw and j tsociate witnc?cofMr. N. P 1 ri*t. whu. by their falsehoods, hatched the difficulties and provoked the rupture between myself and Gen. Scott. and acted as his pimps iu getting up the falsehoods embodied in tue foul chides against ma. and then appeared be firs the Courts of Inquiry and swore against me. wuh tni/ice so *ndi>cre*t as to discredit them selves. and to caul*' the court to set aside their testimony?thus branding them as convicts of willful /u/js sicca ring. W hi'e I will be ready at all times to make good tho statements in my address, if auy gen tleman will take issue wuh mo upm them, yet, a proper Self-respect forbids that I should do uiure than notice the misrrprestnt-itions and a?peT*ious ot Hitchcock or 'lrist. who are ?par tiobils frat mm ' in crime This much I will do, inasmuch as s?me persons may see his dirty effusions who have had an opportunity <>f ex amining iny address. I ehall point out and oorrect two palpable falsehoods in his letter, so that the public may ?ee that he is still en gaged in his old vocation of willful misrepre sentation. In my address I made the following state ment, vis. "I* appointing a mission to travel w tli the ar nvy and treat for peare, (if an opportunity ahould ? ttie grade of diplomatic duty to be per formed. and the emolument!* thfiflrt attached, made it impossible for the President to find a <(sli??iSa wuo would accept the pine*.

It will be seen from the above statement. that I represent myself as having been placed by the President in semi-official relations with Mr. Trist as a commissioner, and that I occu pied tha position of a Coiifilential officer of the Governmaut in connection with this mission, ot which fa j t Mr Trist had full knowledge But I had no duty to perform as auch eivil officer with Gen. S* .?tt, and there is not one word said upL.n that subject; and yet this swift witness, in his letter U>thedt. Louis Republican, make* the following reckfo?s statement, vis: ? Tnia very remarkable paper stand* alone, it ia P'emm d, aa ar? inatance wherein a randrdalefor ffl-eh-'fore our people t>as?-s bis claims, or ki* r>?inripal claim, up ?u an open r.?iife*s,on of hav ng orcupied the low and dishonorable poailktn of a apy tipa.n the conduct of hia t ouuutiudtu^ /eii?rhl (ten Pillow unbluahiiigly tell* ua mat Le join?d General JS-ott iu Mon o a? thecoi.ii il-nilil ota er of ibe liovernmeut, upou whom tue Prea>deut relied to ^ua d and pfote>t the honor of the countiy in the important negirtia iioua iavulvlng the |jefu e of the country.'

But Gen.- Pillow ac cepted the degrading position trndcrrd him by the President, and uow claims credit for his ser vices, as 'the confidential officer,' whose publio position ii.ive him access to the presence of tlu' commanding general." Here, with my address before biui, thia ex Inspector General states what be knew to be a deliberate falsehood, vl*: that I confess myself to have been a spy uprfh Geu. Scott; and, having assumed this lit, he has the effrontery upon it to base his calumnious strictures, foully asper sing tny character, and covertly assailing the memory of President Polk. Who docs not per coive tnat, if I had accepted the position of a spy upon Geu. Scott's movements, and had in so doing dishonored myself, the President, in imposing such a duty upon mo, wasdishoiioring himself. But I acccpted no such position, and he knew it when he penned the artiele. How despicablv base must he be who will thus intentionafly fabricate a falsehood in order to get an opportunity of slandering the memory of the illustrious dead, and of venting the malice of his soul against the man whom he tried to vietimixe with his false testimony before the courts of inquiry! If he were now before a court of justice for the first time, and with an untarnished reputa tion. would not this willful f tine hood utterly discredit him ? Nearly ten years ago. in my defence before that court, (which was published to the world.) I denounced him as destitute of truth, honor, and counter He has pocketed this withering denunciation ever since in silence. He now comes forth, professing to bo governed a!ont?by the dc 'ire to protect the character of the "great soldier^n<[ to enlighten the people of Ten nessee as to my claims to Senatorial umors?his niohcf, wanked with falsehood, striking like the assassin in tho dark. Ten years ugo. when I was under the arrest, awaiting a trial ujsin charges which he was ex pected to prove, he wrote au anonymous letter to the New York Courier and Enquirer, in which he said: ' Pillow, too, is in arrest ! He is so ; and charges running through several sheets of paper have been forwarded to W ashington, and they represent him in such an odioustight that wo "cannot thiuk of him but with disgust. Ho is charged with tying, and with duplicity and trencher if . in fact, his character is utterly pros trate liere.'? Again he said : - lie (Pillow) could only have received a slight blow of some sort; possibly, he struck his foot or anklo against some projecting limb, without knowing what it was. Gen. Scott, in his official report, said of this slight fdoi"" against a "projecting limb," '?This gallant leader was struct down v'hile up win- the front rank thy an agonizing wound V Again : Hitchcock says in his letter, ' I will confine my remarks to facts within my own knowledge " So. then, it appears that he had a personal knowledge of the tacts told him in Prist's lies . A personal knowltdee of all that took place atTrist's quarters when he was nut present. Though the army had been fighting from 12 meridian till t p m. on the IVth of August, under my order, and with no senior officer upon the field, he has a personal inowb edsre that I had given no orders to Generals Twiggs. Riley, Cudwallader, or Col. Morgan, when these officers all testify that I had. and when he was not present. On the morning of the 20th of August, when the entrenched camp of Contreras was carried under Smith, I was upon the hill of Ohepulte pec. in f ull view of the assaulting force ; vet he had a personal k nowtetlgr that I was in bad at San Augustine Again : Hitchcock says Trist told him that I t*>ok him in n "private room?' (on the night of the 19th August, after Gen. Scott had directed the assault on the morning of the 20th. under Gen. Fmith s suggestion.) and I told him (Trist) that I disapproved this plan, and notified hiin that 1 washed my hands of the responsibility of the movement. Now, it So happens that this fact, as stated by Trist, was embraced in Scott's charges against me. Trist swore to the fact; but the court was aitisfie I that he htd, and found against him in this, as in all his other tc* tiniou. and Hicheock knew it; yet he now re vives and brings forward this proven falsehood of Trist'a. and repeats it as true, under his pledge "to confine himself to matters within his own knowledge."' lint, independently of this view of tho subject, why should I wieh to i wash uiy hands of the responsibility of a measure ordered" by Gen. Scott? He was in command ot tho army, my sonior in rank, and the entire responsibility would of course rest upon hiiu. Vet Hitchcock rejieat* this old dispmven false hood as if he himself believed it! Is furibcr fact or commentary necessary to -how the utter moral depravity of this Acting Insj>ector General ?" Tho other misrepresentation that I deem it proper to correct, relate# to the Puebia negoti ations. In uiy adirew I made the following statement: "When I ren' h? d the headquarters of the army at I'uebla, 1 was invit* ?t I t a conference with Mr Trist. On my arrival at his quarters 1 found Gen. Scott there. Mr Trist informed metbat he Lad 0|>eiied negotiations with Santa Anna, and had pretty well agtatd upon the prelimina ries of negotiations for peace. By tnestf terms Santa A una was to be paid, cash ill hand, as ear nest money, *10.nU). and our army was to march to the valley ot Mexico and lijjht a battle before the rrtv. If we won. an armistice w&s to l>e granted, and commissioner* appointed to treiit for peace. When p??ace should t<e concluded, j San la Anna was to receive one million of dolia;a moic. '?Mr. Trist further informed rue that these term' had tx*en sgiccd to, but it was an open question whether Santa Anna or Oe:iera! Scott (after the battle Whs fought; should take the initiative and send the fl ij4 of truce, preparatory to the aimn tice?Santa Anna insisting that fteneral fi'ott should urnd the ft ig, but General Scott insist I iq; if he won the battle hanta Anna should do so. He furth< r said Gen. Scott had furnished him the mouey. and that he had pa'.d the *10,'Mi required to l>c paid in advance, and that General Scott had the means in the disbursing department of the army, or could raise, the means of paying the mil lion to be paid at the conclusion of the ne^olin tions Ho alio>aid he bad invited no* to th**coii leieiice in pursuance of the order of the l\esl dent. and desired my approval of the terms. '?I asked Mr. Trist if there was any law au thorizing such a use of ttis public money' lie replied there was not. I then asked him if the President had authoi izvd such a use of it' He rvplied he had not; but he thought it was the best he could do. '?Rega'ding this as an improper use of the pub lic money, and as a frrifcc to the commander of the enemy a forces, and as dishonoring the Govern ment, and disgraceful to our army, I at once pro I tested a/*nst the whole matter. "Gen Scott Justified and defended the ineas | ure, both upon the score of morals and as to the usaue Governments. He **ld we were not cor rupting Santa Anna, forth*' fuctthat he was found in the maiket, asking a ttrib*, is a pioof that he I was alroady corrupted. ?'ln re^u'd to the practice of Government*, he said it was a ?f >11 Government* to etf. ct their |)ui|Hj?vs, when necessary, by money, and that our Governnieiit had sanctioned ihe practice. He said the prosei.t* made by it lo thecfLH'f* of Indian t ibesand to the Harbarv powers were no ; thing but bribe*. He further said that in the settlement of th? Northeastern iwundary question, sfitsj.tsio hod Imtii uttd?ub one knoWs how, but the odlceisof the Government. unless it w,u> used to brilje the Maine pies*. He mentioned other in stances in which the Government had expended lari?e sums of money In this way 44 Finding Gen 3?oU clear as to the right of the measure, and earnest iu his c0 Operation with Mr. Trist. not beiug familiar myself with the usages of other governments, nor the practice of 1 our owu. 1 doubted what I ou^ht to an, and. in deference t? bis wishes and jud/ineut, sunpo.idtd in) op('0?ition until s day's inflection had con Hum d tuy opinion of duty to my conntry. On ; me night after fhe conference took pUe* Geu Scott called a council of ??uei?l ollk-e>s, to whom I he made known what had Wen done in the way of iie?otiatiou, and to whom he expressed sub stantially the views and opinions above detailed ki H^ing satisfied, after leSectioo, that my first imp ession* were i went next day to G?u t *eott and M< Trist, and protested so earnestly airaiust the whole matter that they both said 1 wa? rieai, ami that they would aband -n the De foliation. I then thought they we.e.incere ?u their purpose to abandon It, aud all idea of peace to be thus obtained It will b? teen from the abort statement thai i the conferenco sooken of was hold in tho day time, and at Air. Trial's quarters, and that there was no one present but Mr. Trial (ien Scott, and mvself. It was at this conference that the termsof the negotiation agreed to by Mr Trial were first made known to me It was here that I tuade known my opposition. It was then that Gen. fccott a argumeuta induood mo to doubt a* to my duty, and that X, at his request, and in def erence to his wishes and opinions, agreed to suspend my opposition until reflection should satisfy me a? to my duty. I stated in my ad dress that the following night (ien. Scott called a council of general officers, to whom ho ex pressed. substantially, the same views and opinions ho had in the conference held at Trist's quarters. I did not. however, pretend to give the opinions or views expressed at that meet ing. either by myself or any one else; aftd I re ferred to what took place at this meeting of general officers siiuply to let the public under stand that others, beside myself, knew the facts, i have stated that at the piivatu conference 1 had agreed to suspend my opposition, and I now state that, at the meeting of general offi cer!, I did not make known my opposition; but said in substance, that though I thought the whole matter was wrong, yet I supposed we were choosing the least of evils, in agreeing to the proposed tonus. This I did in conformity with my agreement to suapond my opin.sition until better satisfied as to my duty. Hitch cgdi'a "notea written at the time"' are like tTPVe he produced on the investigation before the court about the hour at which (Jen Scott arrived on the battle-field on the l?th of August which were proven to be falso by half a dozen witnesses. These notes do not correctly give what was said by any general officer present except Gen. Cadwallador, who wxpressed no' opinion. But that is their matter, not mine. I further said in my addroas. as is seen from the aoove quotation, that next day. being sat isfied after refluotion that my first impressions were right. 1 went to General Scott and Mr. Irist and protested so earnestly against the whole matter, that they both agreed I was right, and that they would abandon the nego tiations. 1 he meeting of general officers had no duty to perform in a civil capacity. My portion .las a confidential officer of the Government was not known to them Mr. Trist was not even pres ent. It was called by (Jen. Scott, and as l had agreed to suspend, temporarily, my opposite, I did so. If, at this meeting, i committed an error, in not expressing the opinions I entor tlined, it proceeded from my respect for Gen" Scott and my anxiety not to thwnrt his wishes! Hut I did not fail to right myself at the earliest moment afterwards, with Mr Trist.(with whom my duties associated me,) and with Gen. Scott at whose request I hud agreed to suspend my opposition, for reflection. These are the facts as they are stated, sub stantially. in my address, and as Hitchcock knew them to be from that address; and yet In comes forward. professing to have a veronal knoxcleHc* of all the fact.*, and with bis notes (evidently written for the place they ..ccupy in his letter) makes me the warm advocate or "the whole corrupt negotiation?armistice and all when my opposition to the whole proceeding is as well known, and was as fullv proven, as anv proposition e<M.!d be that depended upon hu man testimony. He says Congress had made a liberal appro priation to procure a peace, and thinks it would not be so great a wrong to uso a little of it even in the way of a bribe. He feels that if he could implicate mo in this business, he would thereby effectually screen himself and his chief associate in turpitude, Trist. from the condem nation of a just public opinion. This gross perversion of my j>o3ition. and his effort to raise a false imue between mvself and <len Smith, and to uscribe Cen. Scott's rupture with me to my refusal to modify my official re port, is but another shameless attempt at false h'K>d. .it which he has ?hown himself quite as adroit as he was reckless in swearing before the court. 'J o understand the important of his question, and how greatly the American army was en dangered by the terms of this negotiation, as agreed upon, it is necessary to look at the rela tive strength and position of the two armies at the time. The Mexican army was 3i,00l> strong, and was in a city with a population of 200.000 inhabitants, defended by double lines of defen sive works, with over loo pieces of artillery and with this army. The American army consisted of I l..?oo men, all told ; was in the midst of tbo enemy s country, without supporting force, and without the possibility of early reinforcements. From this statement of the relative strength and position of the two armies, how fearfully were the chances against our success ! Yet, by the tin,is <zt agreed ujnon, if Santa Anna won the Littlr% the survivors of the American arrnv would be within his jtower and at his mercy. If we won, he had provided, hy the armistice, for the safety of himself, his army, and the city. If peace ensued, ho got tho million and ten thousand dollars. If pea?o did not ensue, ho got time to make every necessary preparation for renewing the bloody struggle, with greatly increased chances of sucoces, from our reduced force. It will thus be seen that Gen.-Scott and Santa Anna hud agreed to play the game of "open and shut."' the stake being the lives and blood of our army, and Santa Anna having uthr hidd. That the army in such a conflict did not perish was owing to its own indomitafde valor. Asitwas.it cut it* way into the city at the cost of nearly half its numbers. It was against these terms thnt 1 protested. Tn my address I stated that Mr. Trist made an agreement with Santa Anna (and that Gen Scott approved and sanctioned it) by which Santa Anna was to receive, cash in hand, $!?, 000; that our army was to march to the valley of Mexico; fight a battle before the city ; if we won Scott was to grant an armistice?Santa Anna was to appoint commissioners to treat for peace, and when peace was concluded he v.as to receive one million more; that Scott or Trist paid tho ten thousand dollars before leav ing Puebla; that wo marched to the valley, fought tho battle, had the city in his power, balicl the army at tho gate of the city, or dered it to fall back without a flag of truce from the enemy, and granted an armistice; that ?.iuta Anna was allowed time to recruit hi^ ar my, strengthen the defences of the city, and tijus to make it necessary to fi^ht over his bat tles, which cost the anuy the blood of l.t>72 men ; that it was thus manifest that General Sc >tt rrted np?n and carried out the tarns of the l'ucbla negotiations ; that I opposed the whole proceeding, not as a spy upon Gen. S 'ott, but as an associate commissioner with Mr. 1 rist; that my position was known both to Gen. Scott and Mr. Trist; that, finding I could not arrest tbeeo proceedings, aliko dis graceful to the Government and dangerous to the artny, 1 reported all the facts to the l'resi ident, who thereupon recalled Mr. Trist; that shortly afterwards I was arrestod and held a prisoner In the City of Mexico, nutil I was re lieved from airest by order cf the President of the Uuited States. I hi? was the substance of that address. Does (ien. Hitchcock deny that there was such an argument, or ttiat the ten thousand dollars was paid ' Does he deny that, after. marching to the valley and fighting the battle. Gen. Scott halted the army when thj city waa in his pow?r and granted an armistice without the enemy having sent a Hag of truoe or asked for the ar mistice until next day Does he deny that I opposed the armistice warmly and earnestly, both by verbal and written remonstrance * Does he deny that Banta Anna availed himself of the armistice to recruit his army and streng thsn the defences of the city, and that the af ter operations, made necessary by the armis tioe, eoat the army the blood of 1,672 of its men ' Does he explain why Mr. Trist was re called and ordered to be sent out of tbo coun try, if not upon my report, and why he was promptly recalled upon that. If I was not associate commissioner ' Does he pretend to explain how it happened that both General Wor'h and myself? the twq officers who op posed the armistice?wero arrested shortly af ter Trist was recalled ? Unless ho denies these well-known facts of the history of that cam paign, he makes no issue with ai;y statement in my address. Vet he would have the public believe that Gen. Scott broke off friendly relatione with me because I would rot alter my official report and falsify my conviction* of truth. Ho says that Gen. Scott "condescended1' to address me in kind and complimentary language in a " private not*.''' to induco me to do so ; and that I basely attempted to use this private note for my own glorificatiou. Ac. In the first place. Gen. Scott's letter, from which the extract was taken, is not a privatt note, but. on the contrary, was an official letter. addressed by Maj. Geu. Scott to Maj. Gen. Pillow, and related exclusively to the move ments of the urmy and to official reports, and was by Gen. Scott so regarded, and by Lirn forwarded to the War Department of the Gov ernment at Washington. In the second place, if it had boen n private note, and Gen. Scott had paid mo unmerited compliments to induco me to falsify mv own convictions, as Hitchcock s.ays was the fact, he fmt General Scott in a position in which all his riends would see that ho compromi <ed his honor. Either, therefore. IIitchc>ck lie?, or else General Scott was guilty of writing me a highly eulogistic letter, falsifying the truth for a mopi ignoble purpose. It is not material to me which horn of the dilemma he assumes. If ho speaks the truth. Gen. Scott wrote falsely. If Gen. Scott, in his official letter, wrote the truth, Hitchcock has but added another to the many acts which con sign his naino to infamy and dishonor. Ho may. therefore, fabricate what he pleases, and slandor the memory of the pure and illus

trious statesman who recalled his ' associate in crime,"' suspended his chief from command, and approved the finding of the court that relieved me from his false testimony and thefoul charges he vainly sought to tlx upon my character, lie may run. as tho leaderof the pack, upon the track of him for whose hlood he so thirsts; but his teeth are now extracted, and he cannot bite, though he be rahid with hnte and malice. I regret the necessary length of this commu nication, and still more the notice I have been compelled to take of a man who. though not meutioned or alluded to in my address, comes forward an impertinent intermcddler with the rights of the people of Tennessee; and provokes this exposure Perhaps, in the future, he will work at 44 Scott's Conquest of Mexico,'" in the ?' retirc ment'' iuto which his aversion to the use of the sword has driven him. as more congenial to his peareah!e nature than fighting Indians. Having now <lisj>oscd of him as i think lie de serves. it is proper to say that I shall take no further noticeot anything emanating from that source. Respectfully* Gin. J. Pillow. Dentistry, &c. ?K.
