INAUGURAL - MESSAGE.
. it 4 ' - ; ! ' ' i : ' .'
Fellow-Citizens of the United States :
vnr cnfTrntrft hn,vin!r elected me to
the office of President of the United
States, I have, in coniormuy wuu uie
Constitution ot our country, uihcu
oath of office prescribed therein. I
have taken the oatrrwithout meniai
focorvntinn and with the determina
tion to do to the best of my ability all
that it requires of me. The responsi
bilities I ieel but accept mem wiuiuut,
fear. The office has come to me un
sought; I commence its duties un
trammeled. I bring to it a conscien
tious desire and determination to nu
it to the best of my ability, to the sat
isfaction of the people, un an ice leau
ing questions agitating the public
mind, I will always express my views
to congress and urge them accordion
to my judgment and when I think it
advisable I will exercise the constitu
tional privilege of interposing a veto
to defeat measures which I oppose :
but all laws will be faithfully executed
whether they meet my approval or
not. I shall on all subjects have a
nolicv to recommend, none to entorce
against the will of the people. Laws
are to govern all alike, those opposed
as well as tnose wno iavor mem. x
know no method to secure the repeal
of bad laws so effective as their strin
The country naving just, imuiergcu
from a great rebellion many questions
will come before it for settlement in
the next four years which preceeding
administrations have never Had to
deal with. In meeting these it is de
sirable that they should be approach
ed calmlv. without prejudice, hate or
eectional pride, remembering that the
greatest good to tne greatest numuer
is the object to be attained. This re
quires security of person and property
and for religious and political opinion
in every part of our country without
regard to local prejudice. Laws to se
sure these will receive my best efforts
for their enforcement.
A crreat debt ha9 been contracted in
securine to us and our posterity the
Union. Tne payment oi tnis, princi
pal and interest, as well as tne return
to a specie basis as soon as it can be ac
complished without material detn-
ment to tne debtor class or tne coun
try at large, must be provided for.
To protect . the national honor,
every dollar oi government inueut
edness should be paid in gold unless
otherwise expressly stipulated in the
contract. Let it be understood that no
repudiator of one farthing of our debt
willbe trusted in place, and it will go far
toward strengthening a credit wnicn
ought to be the best in the world, and
would ultimately enable us to replace
the debt with bonds bearing less inte
rest than we now have to pay. To
this should be added a faithful collec
tion of the revenue, a strict accounta
bility to the treasury for every dollar
collected and? the greatest possible re
trenchment in expenditures in every
department of the government. When
we tompare the pay ing capacity of the
country now, with ten htates still in
novertv front tne enects ot war hut
soon to lmnserge i trust into greater
. " . -r . . . .
prosperity tUan ever before, with its
paying capacity 25 years ago, and
calculate what it probably will be
twety-five years hence, who can doubt
the feasibility of paying every dollar
then with more ease than we now pay
for useless luxuries. "Why it looks as
if providence had bestowed upon us
a strong box, the precious metals lock
ed in the mountains of the far west,
which we are now forging the key to
unlock to meet the very contingency
which is now upon us. Ultimately it
may be necessary to increase the facil
ities for reaching these riches, and it
may be necessary also that the gene
ral government should give its aid to
secure this access, but that should only
be when a dollar of obligation to pay
secures precisely the same it costs now
and not before. Whilst the question
of specie payment is in abeyance the
prudent business man is careful about
contracting debts payable in the dis
tant future. The nation should adopt a
similar rule. A prostrate commerce
is to be rebuilt and all industries en
courage. The young men of our coun
try, those who from their age must be
its rulers twenty-five years hence have
a peculiar interest in maintaining the
national honor. A moments reflec
tion as to what will be our command
ing influence among the nations of the
earth in their day if they are only true
to themselves should inspire them
with, national pride. " All divisions
geographical, political and religious
can join in this common sentiment.
How the public debt is to be paid,
or specie payment resumed, is not so
important as that a plan should be
adopted and acquiesced in. A determi
nation to do is worth more than divid.
ed council upon the method of doing.
Legislation upon, this subject may
not be necessary now, or even advisa
ble ; but it will be when the civil law
is more fully restored in all parts of the
country, and trade has resumed its
wonted channel, it will be my en
deavor to execute all laws in good
faith, collect all revenues assessed, and
to have them properly accounted for
and economically disbursed. I will,
to the best of ray ability, appoint to
office those only who will carry out this
In regard to foreign policy, I would
deal with nations as equitably as the
law requires individuals to deal with
each other, and I would protect law
abiding citizens, nativeor foreign born,
wherever their rights are recognized, or
the flag of our country floats. I wo'd
respect the rights of all nations, and
demand "equal respect for our own.
If others depart from this rule in their
dealings with us, we may be com
pelled to follow their precedent.
The proper treatment of the original
occupants of this land (the Indians),
is one deserving careful study. I will
favor any cause towards them which
tends toward their civilization, chris
tianization and ultimate citizenship.
The question of suffrage is one which
will agitate the public so long as a por
tion of the citizens of the nation are
excluded from its privileges in any
State. It seems to me very desirable
that this question should be settled
now. I entertain the hope, and ex
press the desire that it may be settled
by the ratification of the 15th Article
of the Amendment to the Constitution.
In candor, I ask patience and for
bearance, one to another, throughout
the land ; and a determined effort on
the part of every citizen, to do his
share toward cementing a happy union
and I ask the prayers of this nation
to Almighty God in behalf of this con
summation. - . j 'j U. S. GRANT.

JOHNSON NOT PEESENT.
A MEW PRESIDENT & NEW HOPES.
A TIODDEL ADDRESS.
Washington, March 4.
The presiding officer having an
nounced that all was in readiness for
inauguration, the Vice-President elect
advanced up the steps of the rostrum,
and facing the presiding officer, took
the usual oath of office which the lat
ter administered. Turning to the Sen
ate, Colfax delivered the following ad
dress, which was listened to with deep
attention and distinctly audible to all :
"Senators: In entering upon the
duties in this chamber, to the perfor
mance of which I have been called by
the people of the United States, I re
alize fully the delicacy as well as the
responsibility of the position of pre
siding over a body whose members are
in so large a degree my seniors in age:
not chosen by the body itself, I shall
certainly need the assistance of your
support and your generous forbearance
and confidence, but pledging to you all
a faithful and inflexible impartiality
in the administration of your rules,
and earnestly desiring to co-operate
with you in making the deliberations
of the Senate worthy, not only of its
historic renown, but also of the States
whose commissions you hold."
At the conclusion of this address,
the Senators elect came forward as
their names were called, and took the
Senatorial oath-of office, which was
administered by the newly inducted
Vice-President. Two of tlie Senators
elect were not present Hamilton, of
Maryland, and Brownlow, of Ten
nessee. The organization of the Senate hav
ing been completed, it was announced
that the Senate, Supreme Court, and
invited spectators would proceed to the
east portico of the Capitol to partici
pate in the ceremonies of inauguration.
A procession was accordingly formed,
and the occupants of the iloor of the
Senate proceeded to the place indica
ted, when they took their places on a
platform which had been constructed
upon the steps. The platform had a
circular iron t decorted wil hevergreens,
The two columns supporting the pedi
ment of the portico, were decorated,
and draped with the national flag.
Near Gen. Grant, and a little behind
him sat Mrs. Grant, her children, her
sister, Mrs. Sharp, and Mrs. Casey her
sister-in-law, and Mrs. Gen. Dent and
children. The shouts and bursts of
music . from the bands subsided, and
the President elect and Chief-Justice
Chase rose simultaneously, and the
latter recited in clear solemn tones the
presidential oath of office, which Gen
Grant reverently took. The President
then arose and proceeded to read from
manuscript his inaugural address.
His voice was not audible except to
persons on or near tne irontot tne
platform, but at every pause the satis
faction of those near was responded to
by cheers and shouts from the crowd
outside. During the delivery of his
address, little Nellie Grant was lifted
over the shoulders of the intermedi
ate spectators and reached the side of
her father, where she stood some time
unnoticed. When seen, however, the
incident called forth many expressions
of pleasure and admiration. At the
conclusion of the address the Presi
dent was warmly, congratulated by his
friends, and soon after left in his car
riage for the White House. The pro
cession moved in the same direction.
Most of the Senators having returned
to tlie Chamber the session was re
sumed, and in a few minutes after
wards the Senate adjourned until 12
President Grant reached the White
House after the inauguration about 2
o'clock, P. M. He was met at the
door by Gen. Schofield, who had been
left by Mr. Johnson in charge of the
Executive office. The latter left the
White House at 12 o'clock with the
members of his Cabinet, except Gen.

Presentation or an Address to
A delegation of the German Repub
lican General Committee assembled
on the evening of the 26th ult., at the
residence of Dr. Jacobi in New York,
to pay their respects to Carl Schurz,
Senator elect from Missouri. The
delegation, consisting of about fifty
members, met at 9 p.m., and was in
troduced by Dr. Schutz, when, after a
few introductory remarks, the Vice
President read the following address
in German, which was beautifully en
grossed on parchment:
The German Republican General Committee of
the City of Xvw York to the United Slate Sen
ator, Carl Schurz :
The German Republican General
Committee hails your entrance into
the Senate of the United States as one
of the most important events in the
progress of our Republic. As patriot,
as political leader, a a gifted orator,
and as volnnteer soldier in the cause
of preserving and -ennobling the Un
ion, your name is already inscribed in
brilliant" colors on the pages of her
history. While we, as citizens of this
country, rejoice at this, we at the same
time recognize in you the representa
tive of the German-American element
in its true significance. In the work
of perfecting this mighty Republic,
to which all people of all lands, na
tions, and creeds are invited by our
free institutions, no race has a more
important mission than the German.
The soil on which industry and com
merce, science and art, and liberal
ideas of humanity flourish, is sown
with German earnestness, and shows
the fruits, of German genius. It is
I lilt Jilt l I I Jill li If III V I I 17.
your great merit, as representative of
tne German-American . element, to
carry out the same work nobly and
gloriously in the field of national pol
itics. The exalted destiny of our Re-
ublic can be fulfilled only be perfect
y harmonizing all elements in the
spirit of the fundamental principles
of our political system, "iour elec
tion, the free, hearty, and hon
est expression of the will of the
young lmpire estate of tne W est, is
conclusive evidence tnat this idea is
living and active in the minds of the
native population of this country. We
greet you, therefore, with the proud
assurance that as, while yet in youth,
you distinguished yourself in the
struggle for the regeneration and
greatness of the old fatherland, so now
in manhood, in the highest councils of
the great Republic, you will push for
ward with a still stronger hand the
work of humanity.
Mr. Schurz responded in a few
words, stating that if he was consid
ered the representative of the German
Americans, it was no merit of his own ,
but all had contributed toward this
result; the citizen by his voice, and
the soldier on the field of battle. He
was, pernaps, least enthusiastic of all
about his election to the United States
Senate, because of the high idea he en
tertained of the importance of the po
sition to which he had been called. If
in the future new ties would have to
be formed, and he should arrive at
different conclusions from those held
by the ones.who had now addressed
him, they might, nevertheless, rest
assured that a consciencious conviction
alone had guided him. After shaking
hands with the various gentlemen
present, Mr. Schurz bade them all
good night. To-morrow evening a
complimentary dinner will be given
to him at Delmonico s.
President Johnson's Reception
President Johnson's closing recep
tion on the night of the 2d inst., was
the point of chief attraction to the im
mense crowds or visitors in the city
The result is eaislv imagined. Before
the hour for the opening of the White
House, nearly enough to fill the build
ing were in waiting. Long before the
time much of the usual attendant of
ficial and resident Washington popula
tion arrived. - All the rooms were pack
ed before 9 o'clock. The front porch
was so jammed that few succeeded in
either getting in or comming away.
Half an hour later the carnage way
was entirely blacked up with gentle'
men and Ladies in evening dress, and
the sidewalks for fifty yards on each
side of the central porch were crowded
full with those fighting to get in.
These were oblicred to leave their car
riages at along distance from the front
of the house, and by the time those
who were first inside desired to leave,
the porch, pavement and roadways
were packed close with people, and all
the open part of the pavements was
crowded with carriages.
When attempts to come away began
the scene lccame a terrible one for
ladies. There was no intentional dis
order but it was impossible to avoid
much unpleasant confusion. Ladies
got seperated from their escorts on all
sides. Men were obliged to come
away without overcoates and hats,
and woman without wrappings, for
when once out it was impossible to find
their carriages, and ladies in lull party
dress with trail as long as a garrison
flag were obliged to walk home with
out hoods or shawls.
Men in full dress were seen by the
dozen with their heads tied up in hand
kerchiefs, instead of hats. Woman in
eleeant costumes were crushed throucrh
the crowd on the porch till their plight
was anything but envible. In an
hour not a lady got out except such as
were taken from windows, yuite a
number fainted from the fright and suf
focation caused by the swaying of the
crowd. The police on duty seemed
powerless. None tried to create disor
der, bnt the crowd was so great it was
impossible to control or resist its surg
A few of the Cabinet officers and
some of the foreign ministers, with a
small representation of the prominent
visitors succeeded in gaining an en
trance but the majority of each class
were obliged to abandon the attempt
to get in.
Postmaster-General Randall has ar
rived in town. His arrival is grate
fully honored by Mr. "Brick" Pome
roy, the eulogist of Mr. Lincoln's as
sassin, and the libeler of honorable,
decent men. "Brick" welcoms Ran
dall, and Randall gives him the ad
vertisements of his office !
Well, to what base uses may we
come? Here is Randall, formerly
Governor of a loyal State, afterward
member of Lincoln's Administration,
and a trusted Republican; a rising
man in his Western country, with a
career unfolding to him many honors.
In a fatal moment he become John
sonized. The taint .has grown upon
him so that no one is left to honor
him but "Brick" Pomeroy!!
Another column of "Brick's" paper
prints the following lines:
"I wander about, like a shadow of pain.

Aand I list, With a start, to the gushing of
Oh, how it prates on a bosom of sadness !
So, I turn from a world where I never was
To sit in my sorrow and all alone !'
We presume all this is a quiet refer
ence to the Postmaster-General. JV.

OUE CHICAGO. LETTEE.
Trota our Special Correspondent.. .
Chicago, March 4th.
According to the calendar we have
entered upon the first day of Spring;
but after testing the temperature oi
the atmosphere, and studying the in
dications of approaching vegetation, I
am forced to the conclusion that real
Soring is still in the future. What a
blessing it is that we lirmly believe iu
the recular appearance of these sea
sons, and that preparatious are made
lor their cominir.
In my perambulations about this
city, I see that our citizens calculate
to improve the time for. the next stx
months. Great as was the building
last year, it will be surpassed this year,
Thepublicimprovements already com
pleted only serve as an incentive to re
Before I get away from the subject
of public improvements. I wish to
briefly express an opinion of the bill
Known as the "Lake Front BUI," now
in course of passage through the Ilu
nois Legislature. The portion or it
relating to the present dry land, is of
minor importance, 'lhe part comer
ring the reparian right upon the Illi
nois Central Railroad is of vital im
portance to the whole country for
which Chicacro is a Lake Harbor.
This bill will give the railroad com
pany the complete control.of all the
lake front not already In the hands of
private corporations or individuals
This arrangement would probably be
better for the city, as a horbor would
soon be built : but what will the whole
country do in ten or twenty years, if
this company chooses to charge exhor
bitant rates for all trans-shipments in
this harbor ? How will the men then
feel who voted away to a corporation
what justly belonged to the people of
the North-West ? Our river harbor is
now inadequate to the demand. Judg
ing from the past how very few years
it will be before the immense trade of
this city will spread along the lake;
then Will it not be proper to have the
lake harbor as free from monopoly as
There is a metropolitan feature mak
ing Its appearance very prominently
in our business locations. There is a
centralizing processs going on in the
various leading branches of- trade
The insurance and commission houses
are all congregating on LaSelle street
and Washington, close to the Board
of Trade. The hucksters, produce
and fruit dealers and wholesale grocers
are in or near South Water street. The
various other wholesale houses are
congregating on State, the two avc
enues and Lake wllere these join it
The newspapers are gradually coming
together on Dearborn or very near it
on cross streets.' The latest moves are
the banks and lumber yards. The
former are fast taking np positions'on
Washington, and the latter are very
rapidly removing on the South Branch
to what is known as the New Lumber
District. This process of centralizing
the various kinds. of business does
much to facilitate its transaction and
promote a healthy competition.
Another step towards true metro pol
itan style is the organization of a club
house; the plan to be followed is that
or such institutions in older cities
The society is to consist of not over
two hundred men. A fine house is
furnished in the finest possible style
with an eye to comfort and amuse
ment. Dining rooms, lunch rooms
parlors, library, reading rooms, bill
iard rooms, etc., etc., are to make up
this gentleman's rest.
The subject of life assurance is gen
erally well talked up, both by the
press and agents ; but a word just here
regarding the superior management
and great success of the Globe Mutual
Life of New York, in its western de
partment, under the control of Messrs.
McKiusly & Lockwood, 124 La Salle
street, will not be out of piace. These
gentlemen have represented this com
pany in the west but a very few years.
and in the face of the strongest oppo
sition and jealousy, they have now the
satisfaction of knowing that through
their efforts, "The Globe" stands to
day, both in the city and through
out the whole northwest, as the most
popular and prosperous of. the long
list of corporations of its class, who
bid for public patronage. , ...
The great cause of , success is no
doubt the liberal rates offered as well
as the fair dealing that has always
characterized the actions of these
"Carleton," the versatile correspon
dent of the Boston Journal, writes as
follows from Salt Lake City, concern
ing the public lands in Utah : .
As yet there has been no sales of
public lands in the territory, but the
land office is now open, and the sale
will commence in the spring, when
every available acre will be taken up
by the Mormons under Brigham's di
rections, thus shutting out completely
the Gentilo element ; for no Mormon
can dispose of his lands without Brig
ham's consent. By withholding in
tercourse from the Gentiles, by taking
up the public lands, by bringing new
emigrants from Europe, by the natu
ral increase of population, by adhe
rence to the faith, the Mormons, one
and all, believe that the Church will
become firmly established. Their faith
looks forward to the time when Mor
monisin will be the prevailing religion
in the United State.?, when concubin
age will be universally practiced.-
. The Chicago Tunes expresses its
astonishment at what it calls the stu
pidity of the Kentucky Democracy in
their proposal to run John C. Breck
inridge for Governor, not so much be
cause of his treachery to the nation,
but for his treason to the Democratic
party. The Times says:
"The Democratic party of the Uni
ted States elected Breckenridge to the
vTice-Presideney when he was about
thirty-five years old. When he was a
boy it loaded him with honor, and he
employed tlie position it gave him to
defeat Douglan, the regular Democrat
ic candidate for the Presidency His
ingratitude and trencher to the Dem
ocratic party were blacker crimes than
his alliance with the Confederates. It
the purti' in Kentucy can overlook
this, and make him Governor, it will
show a largo capacity for pardonimr.
The Democracy of the nation wash
their hands of him." y.

I hey mor'n haff made up my mind
to go for the adopshen uv the Constoo
shncl Amendment, and that for tha
benefit pokly uv tho Dimocrisy. I
mor'n halt'Leleeve that the adopshen
uv that Amendment jistez it hez pass
ed both Houses uv Congris, wood re
sult, after all, to our advantage ; that
is, ef the posishcTi we hev alluz taken,
that the nigger is a inferior race, be
the troo one. The Dimocrisy hez nev
er railed, to git txsssesshun uv tea in
ferior classes. They hev sole and un
divided controTe uv sich pccple ez hev
stumick alone, without brane Di
mocrisy nunshes best wher kool
houscs'is not. Thus the patriots wich
inhabit the lower wards u v Noo York ;
the dinizens uv Maekrelville and uv
the Five Pints; thesuthern haff uv
Delaware, whose peeple wood demon- '
strate the trooth uv the theory that
men wuz orijinelly oysters, wuz ther
enny possibility uv makin men uv em ;
tlie suthern porsheni uv. Injianny
and Ulinoy; all these rejunc are
strongholds uv Dimocrisy, and agin
these rocks the waves uv AblLsheniiai
beat In vain.
Now the questions wich agitates my
mind is, wood the niggers, ef given
the ballot, rise abuv us, or sink below
us? lhey woodent hev fur to go,
either way. Ez a matter uv coarse,
the minit they hev the ballot they be
curu to us Objects uv Interest. Tha
minit they hev the fate uv a member
uv Congris in their hands, that minit
the Dimocratic candidate for Conrns
goes for em. He kin not avoid eatln
with em, drinkin with em, and sleep
in with em. In the South, the latter
operashen wood be no new experience ;
the practis hez bin more common wita
that rorshen nv the raco wich. for
sexual reesons, kin never vote. But
a .1 . x . a i
tue cantuuaie, native anu to me man .

the Northern carpet-bagger, uv hevin
long ago overcuni his repugnance to
culler, wich is a grate pint gained.
n i l . . ,
lrameu Dy us anu mix in wita us,
how long wood it take to bring era
down to us? Kin Pollock and Bigler
hold them niggers at Garrettstown in
ther hands forever? -I don't beleeve it.
The polls is opened at Baseom's, the
caucusses is held at Bascom's, and
Bascom's likker wood fetch em in
time. It hez made menny uv us
loathsome objects, and why not them?
At all events, I know that among eta
ther's enny number uv lazy cusses
who won't work, and who take to new
whiskey ez naterally cz I do, and that
porshen uv em we're ez sertin to git ea
leaves is to fall. This classes must
gravitate to us for the suffishent reason
that they hev nowher else to go to find
conjeenyel assosfashen9. Whether
these fellers armed with the ballot, kin
contaminate cnuff uv the utheru to"
give us a majority, is the grate moral
question. At all events,, fcz the thing
is bound to gft thru, I btleeVe it's bet
ter for U3 to make the most uv it, and
by yeeldin a cheerful assent to wat we
can't help, make shoor uv this class at
I feel tolerable easy. Ef thhallot Is
given em in Kentucky, and we kin
keep out them cussiif mishunaries,
with ther primers, and spellin-books,
and skool-houses, I hev faith to be
leeve that the Ablishnists will, after
all, hev acheeved a barren victry;
that is, for thep resent. Troo, we can't

uv ordinary sensibilities down to the

and Kit Burns? And for the sake uv
ther vote, cood our Irish feller citizens
uv Noo York be persuaded to forego

Upon the anser to these questions

How to Kili. a Town. Tho Dubu
que Herald gives the following recipe
for knocking a town stiff and dead:
If you wish to kill a town put up no
more buildings than you are obliged to
occupy yourself. If you should acci
dently have an empty building, and
any one should want to rent it, ask
about three times its value. Look at
every new comer with a scowl. Turn
a cold shoulder to every buisincss man
or mechanic seeking a home timong
you. Go abroad for wares rather than
purchase of your own merchants or
manufacturers at Uie same price. Re
fuse to ad vertise so that persons at a dis
tance will not suppose any buisincss is
being done in your city. A promt
and , close observation of these rules
wil! ruin any town in two year..
