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 gent enforcement. 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 design. 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.

THURSDAY, MAECH 11; 1869. WM. CERELlOniES 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 to-morrow. 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. Schofield. Vice President Colfax also accompanied - President Grant to the White House. The members of the staff of Gen. Grant were all present. An immense multitude congregated outside the gates of the mansion in the belief there would be a general recep tion, but the President did not have one. This afternoon on entrance to his office the following despatch was handed to President Grant: Berlin, March 4, 1SC9. President Grant, While House, Washington: My cordial congratulations on this solemn da v. (Signed) Bismarck. Gen. Grant did not dineat the White House. His Phaeton remained at the door, in readiness to convey him home pgain. President Johnson was not at the Capital. The following cable dispatch was handed to Gen. Grant: March 4, ISfiO. In honor of the man of the day, three cheers for the President. Signed for the members of the Berlin Kxc hanne. Fritz Meyer, Pres't. Presentation or an Address to Senator Scliurz. 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. terrible scenes. 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 ing. 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. With a worm in my breast and a spell on my brain; Aand I list, With a start, to the gushing of frladness;. Oh, how it prates on a bosom of sadness ! So, I turn from a world where I never was known. To sit in my sorrow and all alone !' We presume all this is a quiet refer ence to the Postmaster-General. JV. Y. Tribune. The treaty made by General Gushing with the Government of Columbia, concedes to the United States the ex clusive right to construct interoeeante canal across the Isthmus of Darien, at any point which may be selected by the United States. The Columbian Government cedes six miles of land on each side of the canal, one half for its own benefit and the other for that of the party undertaking the construction of the work. - The Columbian Govern ment is to receive ten per cent income for the first"tcn years, and after the canal is paid for, 2-5 per cent of the net profits. The treaty is to be rati fied by the United States within ten months ; the survey is to be made within two years after the ratification; the canal begun within five years and finished within 15 years after the ratification, otherwise the charter fails. The charter runs for 100 years. The canal is to be under control of the United States, and congress can fix the rate of tolls. The navigation la to be open to all nations in time of peace but closed to belligerenti.who may seek to avail themselves of its advantages. It is es timated that the canal will cost $100, 000,000.

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 newed exertions. 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 possible. 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 agents. "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. The Boston Transcript having called for a rhyme on velocipedes, among quite a number of contributions gives the following, which is the best In the entire lot. If any of our readers can improve oh it, we are willing to give thera a hearing: "Too wish to rhymo velocipede? . Tlie mother lets the bossy iced, Tlie swallow skims the mossy mead, .

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.

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 least.

How long Will it take to get a nigger uv or dinary sensibilities down to the pint uv ordinary sensibilities down to the pint uv asoshiatin -with John Alien and Kit Burns? And for the sake uv ther vote, cood our Irish feller citizens uv Noo York be persuaded to forego ther trooly nashnel amoozement uv killin a d d nigger, now and then?

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.
