A correspondent of the Tribune gives an explabfttion why MeClellun did not report to Gen. Scott, of whic-h fm:t bo gre; t a handle has been made agninst the latter by bis villifiers. Tha correspondent nays : Miiny persons are disappointed in barning that Gen Scott will not pub lisfa an explanan n cf bis complaints against Gen. McClellan to the Secre} try of War, whioh was, by tha culi oí Mr. Stevens, of Penn., on the Sefie" taryof War, published and read in the llousu Of lleprusentativts. Many ast why was tho letter oailed for. There was discusión on the subject, and thev aak what it wasintended to show by it Tbareby hungg a talo. General ScottV ponition isa very delicate one; sonie people do BUgpeot the General'! Union sentiments to lean toward the " wnyward sisters;" but no matter aboul that. Gen. Scott write the Secretan1 of War, coitiptaining of McClellan' indiffurence or negleut of him for not rer.ortjng his plans or consulting bim abo ut the disposition of Ing foroon, - This occurred ome time after it had been discovered by Gun.

McCllelian went to the President about tha exUaordinary denouement, and Colonel Soolt and A dj ut asi General Thomas, who was also mispectod of treachery, were fiummoned to the White House to be Oon'fronted on the charge. Cd. Scot oonfesned his g-, iik! What was done? Why, Cotonel Scott, instead of being shot for his tieason, was allowed to be placad on the retired list for lifa, and to receive the pay and emolumenta of a Lieutenant Colonel of cavalry I He immudiately went to Europe, where he i-i doing all he can for secossion ! Gun Sjott will not publish anything. He knows the reason why Gen. McCleHan did not report his plans to liim, and Gen. Scott wil not stir up a matter t'iut would be oí no advantage to ene of' his family who is a trititor living opon a g ivernment which he basely betrays.
