Gen. Scott . . .

. . . upon hearing of the battle of Pittsburg Landing, is reported to have said that no more field encounters between large armies were likely to take place during the course of the present war, that hereafter the rebels would fight behind intrenchments, or scatter in small parties to harass the Union armies.
